    Fandom: The Ancient Magus' Bride
    Age: 15
    Species: Human/Sleigh Beggy
    Gender: Female
    Canon Point: Immediately after chapter 27, while she's sleeping after getting back home from her Christmas shopping.
    NPC Companions: Ruth, her Grim familiar

    SKILLS & ABILITIES


    Special Abilities
    Chise is capable of using magic and, in fact, has incredible potential for it. Her potential for magic allows her to see things that would be invisible to the common eye, a power that is referred to as simply the Sight. Being a Sleigh Beggy, she can both produce her own magic but can also absorb it from her surroundings, making it so that there will never be a moment where she'll be unable to use it. When her emotions get too strong, she can sometimes start absorbing a lot of magic to the point where she becomes much like an anti-magic void

    She has a special talent for the area of magic that deals with sleep in particular. If she's asleep next to a person, she can connect with them and look into their memories; or even being able to have a shared dream with someone even if they're really far away from her. She's also capable of singing lullabies that can put people to sleep for long periods of time and is very good at making sleeping potions (although most of the time she makes them by accident).

    Being a Sleigh Beggy, fae creatures are naturally attracted and fond of her, often offering her their help even if their idea of "help" might be on the troublesome side of things, but also making it so that she can borrow their power for her magic with ease. Since the people in Pandora come from worlds with different rules, whether this would affect the fae living in it would be done on a case-by-case basis.

    After making a deal with Crowley to prolong her life, Chise's endurance became much greater than a normal person's and she can now power through a lot of things that would normally kill someone, unless a great amount of strength is used or a fragile part of her body is struck

    Due to receiving magic training from John Uskglass, Chise is now capable of communicating with plants in such a way that she effectively controls them to do her bidding. She has also been taught to use healing magic in cases where using a potion might not be an option. Her time spent with Teddy Luppin also led to her learning a few spells similar to those from the Harry Potter canon.

    In general, Chise has the potential to do pretty much anything with magic, with the only thing keeping her from outright reality warping being a lack of training, a lack of imagination and general unwillingness to do anything too drastic.

    Equipment
    Chise has her wand, which is what she uses in order to be able to more easily conduct the magic power she uses, which she describes as being similar to a conductor's baton.

    She wears a necklace with a green stone on it that normally would allow Elias to know where she is at all times, but that is irrelevant in Pandora. However, the stone also has a use where if Chise looks through the hole in the middle of it, her Sight will be improved and she can see the real nature of things that would have fooled her otherwise; meaning she's able to look through magical disguises and illusions using it.

    Chise carries with herself a little pouch where she carries a variety of different tools. The pouch itself is connected to Chise's room in her world, but the connection has been severed in Pandora. The things that can be found in the pouch include:
    • A knife made with a special stone, but having no particular qualities to it.
    • Hemp cord (for tying things together or tyings things up.)
    • Stainless steel shears (for gardening)
    • A small bottle full of salt (which is used as a purifier for magic purposes)
    • Small cauldron and some coal
    • Cloth (for wrapping things or tying them together)
    • Various kinds of medicine
    NPC Abilities:
    • Enhaced Senses: As a dog, Ruth has a better sense of smell and hearing than that of a human. Unlike normal dogs, however, he's fully capable of communicating with others.
    • Shapeshifting: Ruth can change between being a black dog big enough that Chise can comfortably ride on his back, and being a young human. He can adjust his shape however he wants, such as making his human appearance shorter so as to be closer to Chise's height.
    • Hellfire: In his dog form, Ruth can breathe fire.
    • Shadow Merge: As a way of trailing her around without being noticed, Ruth can merge with Chise's shadow and follow her that way, still being able to talk to her while in that state.
    • Familiar Pact: Ruth's pact with Chise means that they share all their thoughts, emotions, experiences, dreams and memories with each other. Ruth also taps into Chise's magic as a way of sustaining himself, meaning he has few needs of his own. He also shares a life with Chise, meaning that if she were to die, so would he.
    • Magic: Ruth can help Chise perform spells and, presumably, is also capable of performing spells on his own although he has little reason to do so usually.
    WEAKNESSES


    One of the problems of being a Sleigh Beggy is that Chise's body is not very well equipped to handle all the magic she's getting. She has a lot of blood, but her heart is weak. This leads to Chise often falling unconscious when she overexerts herself and potentially stay knocked out for several days. Due to how much magic strains her body, she also only has about 3 years of life before her body finally breaks down. Fixed by Crowley at the of Summer, Year 7

    Although Chise's body is capable of withstanding a lot more abuse than a normal person's, she's still far from invincible and can be killed if sufficient force is used against her or someone aims for more vulnerable parts of the human body.

    The fact that she tends to draw fae towards her also means that she might end up luring some of the more malicious ones as well, which can be a problem if they don't like her enough or want to use her for their own purposes.

    She also still has little control over her magic, meaning that she can easily overdo it when she's practicing and end up making a spell much more powerful than she intended, making it unreliable at times and outright dangerous depending of the nature of the spell

    As for Ruth, whatever pain Chise faces, he's going to suffer through it too. Depending of the severity of the wound, this can result in him starting to bleed out and grow very weak to the point where he has difficulty keeping his form. In a way, Chise is Ruth's greatest strength and greatest weakness.


    PERSONALITY


    Chise is a quiet, but very polite, hardworking and kind girl. Due to her long story of suffering, at the hand of both fae and humans, she's not the most well-adjusted person socially and can be a bit rough on the edges at first, but once she's shown kindness she becomes quickly attached to others due to being very starved for affection. Even as she's still warming up to people she's still polite and prefers to keep her wittier thoughts to herself, but in most cases she will seem fairly aloof and a little cold at first, not often engaging in conversation if she's not being directly addressed or if she has something really important to say.

    She has a very low sense of self-worth and as such, she can be very harsh on herself for things that others would take for granted. It also leads to her recklessly putting herself in danger for the sake of others with frequency, both because she thinks they're more important than her, and out of a genuine desire to help others whenever she can. It doesn't even cross her mind that others might love her as much as she loves them and that her getting hurt could potentially hurt people other than herself. There is very little she won't do for the sake of someone she cares for, harming another person in any way being one of those things.

    She has a passion for literature, as she immerses herself so much in the stories she reads that she can momentarily forget all her problems and just be taken in by the story.

    ----------------

    Loyalty is the defining trait of Ruth. He has an unconditional love towards Chise, as well as his previous owner. He has a tendency to treat Chise much like she was his little sister and is very protective of her as a result. He's often frustrated with her reckless behavior and is just as quick to scold her as he is to help her get through a tight spot. He's not so much a pet or a servant as much as he is Chise's guardian.

    Ruth dislikes being treated as a dog, as he finds it degrading. Instead, he rather wants to be seen as the fae that he is. Despite that, however, Ruth is still very much a dog in nature and has all the instincts associated with it. Ranging from feeling the need to chase after smaller creatures, to catching frisbees in his mouth and wagging his tail when he is happy. He's fully aware of his animal instincts and intensely dislikes them, but can do nothing about them.

    With people that aren't Chise, Ruth is often distant and not very talkative unless directly addressed. He tends to be distrustful of others at first, a result of his overprotection of Chise, but once he grows to trust someone, he's willing to talk to them and even confide in them with some matters such as sharing some information regarding Chise's inner thoughts and emotions, often with the intention of helping others understand the girl better.

    BRIEF HISTORY


    From an early age, Chise was capable of seeing supernatural things and she was easily scared of them, however, she had her father to protect her. That all changed when her father suddenly abandoned her and her mom, taking her little brother with him. Her mom couldn't deal with all the things Chise attracted towards her and eventually broke down and tried to murder her, telling Chise that she should never have been born, only to hesitate at the end and instead kill herself by jumping off a window.

    With no family, Chise ended up in an orphanage, however, since no other person had the Sight like her parents had, they didn't understand that she was being constantly haunted by the fae that followed her everywhere she went. Instead, they just thought she was a strange, difficult child, which led to her going through many different families and be a friendless victim of bullying at school.

    Eventually, it all became too much to bear and Chise attempted to commit suicide herself by jumping off the roof of a building. She was stopped by a man who knew she was a Sleigh Beggy and he offered that instead of killing herself she should attempt to sell herself to someone who would care for her. Desperate for a place to go home to, Chise sold herself to slavery, which led her to meet Elias Ainsworth.

    Elias took her in both as an apprentice and also future bride. Although Elias was a very strange man, Chise quickly got attached to him due to he being the first person who truly made her feel welcome. From that point onwards, Chise was introduced to the world of magic, learned more about herself and got to meet many different people and make new friends, but all that ended up cut short when she was suddenly brought to Pandora.

    ---------------------

    Ruth used to be a simple dog known as Ulysse. He had been together with his owner, Isabel, since her birth and took care of her like he was her brother. This actually led to him starting to think of himself as human, instead of a dog, despite the obvious evidence to the contrary.

    One day, Isabel was being chased by some bullies and ended up on the path of a carriage, which hit her and resulted in her death. Not fully understanding the idea of death, Ulysse stayed by Isabel's grave, not wanting her to be alone when she woke up. Even when Isabel's father tried to bring him back home, he refused to budge from his location until, eventually, he passed away himself.

    Returning as a Grim/Black Dog, Ulysse wandered through the graveyard where Isabel's grave was located, not aware of what he now was. When the graveyard became the target of experimenting from the sociopathic mage, Cartaphilus, who began using the bodies in the cemetary as ingredients for his creation, Ruth was hurt by one of the mage's creation and ended up meeting with Chise Hatori, who greatly reminded him of Isabel.

    Cartaphilus was interested in using Ruth himself as an ingredient for his experiments and, after awakening as a fae, Ruth asked Chise to form a pact with him, becoming her familiar and creating a bond that would be far too troublesome to break, leading to the twisted mage giving up on it. From there, Ruth became Chise's loyal familiar and has stayed by her side ever since.


    ROLEPLAY SAMPLE


    (Tw: Suicide)

    "You shouldn't have been born."

    Those were the words echoing in Chise's mind as she found herself at the edge of her school's rooftop, looking down at the ground far below without any fear.

    16 years, that was how long she had lived so far. To have made it to that age was nothing short of an achievement, seeing as everything conspired to make her life miserable. From the creepy, strange creatures that only she could see and that followed her everywhere, to even the humans who she was surrounded by every day.

    "One day you will find someone who will bring you joy"

    Those were the words said by one of the few people who had been genuinely kind to her as a child. Words that she could never believe in, especially after all the following days proved them wrong.

    All she wanted was a place to go home to, a place where she would be accepted as family. Even that was too much to ask. Instead, all she got were mockeries, people getting angry at her for things that were no fault of her own, getting bullied and made fun of among all her "peers"... It was her own personal hell.

    Was she even really alive? Was this all real? Perhaps her mother really had killed her that day and all that she was seeing was her punishment. A punishment for what? She didn't know, existing, maybe; that seemed to be the main sin she committed.

    Standing there at the edge of the roof, the wind blowing against her face and making her short red hair wave, she wondered what was going to happen after she went down. Was there really a heaven? Would she even go there? Unlikely, all that was waiting for her was likely more punishment.

    And yet she couldn't help but wonder if it was preferable to where she was now.
