Blonde haired, green eyed, she is a pretty Eldren who stands no taller than five foot in height. For an Eldren woman this is incredibly short seeing as she appears at least eighteen years of age. Both being a physical oddity and social anomaly, she dresses eccentrically as most gypsies tend to do. She absolutely refuses to wear shoes, instead wearing socks with the toes cut out with exception to one hoop. Off colored, mismatched rags that occasionally show too much skin, with beads and ornate trinkets she mysteriously acquired laced in her hair. Risa is a truly strange sight behold.
Risa is a gypsy, and by society standards that makes her a lying, thieving, heretic. In this case they’re probably all to some extent true but like all individuals there are multiple layers. What most see is the enigmatic fortune teller who may be capable of reading more than just cards. While upbeat, energetic, there is a dangerous and unpredictable edge to Risa. Intentionally she seems to boast of grand stories to induce the fear of the gypsies and threatens others with curses should they cross her, even if she herself is not capable of such. Those who spend a great amount of time around her will figure quickly she breaks a lot of social norms as a female, even to drinking and smoking if given the opportunity. Whether she does this just because or to watch the shock on people’s faces is as good as anybody’s guess.
Yet she can be serious as well. Any questions or prying close to her elder sister tends to lead a person to a having a visit from Risa. She is also a very serious business woman who’s favorite phrase tends to be “What is it worth to you?” Coin is not the only means in which one can pay Risa. Favors are one method she seems very fond of as well as items of sentiment or historical value.
Public knowledge of Risa’s history is very little. It is known for certain that she is from the Romania region and speaks with a heavy romani/russian accent due to the Russian influence bleeding into the country. Her height is rumored to be due to a strange love affair between her eldren mother and a halfing, and her refusal to wear shoes seems to largely support this. In the gypsy caravan, she is the younger half sister to a pure Eldren petty magician named Rasia, and adopted family member to a gypsy halfling named Emilian. All other things known about her tend to be questionable however there are a number of rumors flying about though a number of them its suspected she created herself.
Rasia – Lower Class – Older half-sister of Risa, fellow gypsy and social anomaly, and petty magician. She seems to put even a few upper class women to shame with her beauty and surprising intellect. However due to a few events before their arrival in London, something about Rasia always seems a little…off.
Emilian – Lower Class – Another gypsy escaping persecution, cleverly and suave little halfling. He is good at getting in and out of places without being noticed and an exceptional gambler. His fascination happens to be people.
Gage Price – High Class – - Front man of a small business by day and thief by night, often has his fortune told before a job just to be certain.
Edith Jenkins – Middle Class – A plain, devout Aluminat maid for a high class family. She is an envious woman who looks on her peers and betters with envy, being unmarried and borderline hag-hood, she often obsesses over the social aspects in last ditch hopes to eventually marry. Despite her strict religious nature her own desperation brought her to Risa, and happily Risa uses her as information regarding the activities of the higher classes.
Risa has learned very quickly it appears impossible to escape one’s past. Following an ominous reading she had given Fain, and the death of Kent Darvy, what stability and constant lifestyle she has known appears to be in question. The West End Terror, she has learned is in fact a dreaded member of the undead, better known as a vampire. In this discovery she has found that Lord Sergei has also surfaced in London, passing through another gypsy camp that has settled in the city.
Admiration, resentment, and mixed plethora of emotions have overtaken Risa. She cannot let the vampires continue to run London, even if she must end to their existence. Perhaps the Masked Bandit will understand, or perhaps he will scorn the violent answer to the problem. Whatever the case Risa has taken things a step further and killed one of The West End Terror’s running men, to be fair was a vampire.
The rest of her life seems to be drifting onto a smooth path. Her sister able to open a herb shop and stall, while a local doctor appears to have taken a liking to her, which means possible an escape from this life for her sister at last. However hopefully she will live long enough to at least see that Rasia has a life of her own. For herself, she isn’t so sure what she can do outside protect this city, and if she’ll make it through the dark forest of her vision.
