Losing Emmett. One might think her biggest fear to be losing one of her children, and while that of course is a fear of hers, the biggest is her husband for a few reasons. Alilah has always had a partner in life. She's always had someone to lean on and rely on. One person that's loved and accepted her no matter her shortcomings. If she lost Emmett she would lose a part of herself she would never get back. She would never be the same. Keeping in mind her idea of loss means eternity so him not accompanying her in every aspect of life and even death and beyond.

Painting : Alilah was raised between homes from time to time and her “mother” had strict ideals about how her daughter should be raised. Painting was about the only thing her mother encouraged as 'appropriate' for a young girl that Alilah had any interest in. (She can play the harp but lol) Though she initially started it to keep her mother happy, she soon discovered the many benefits of it mentally and used it as a tool to decorate weapons and preserve myths and ideals. Not exactly her mother's intent but one that keeps her satisfied when she needs a break.
Hunting and tracking : Something she and her father would do on any given day despite the season or weather. This taught her a lot of the survival skills she knows and is something she passed on to those of her children that were willing to go with her. It's quality bonding time as well as it allows her to be self-sustainable and sharp.
TELL ME YOUR VICE(S):
➝ Sex : She relies on this as an emotional outlet with her husband.
➝ Pain (seeking) : Physical not emotional xD
(Alilah’s chimera forms share these tattoos, her meta form does not)
➝ Tree of life tattoo etched with knotwork, large in size, that sits upon her breastbone (17). A secondary tattoo of runes crafted from trees that runs up her right forearm (25). A final series of rune carvings down the length of her spine (31). All are done in traditional wood ash and have a slight blue hue.
➝ Alilah has a scar a few inches wide on her back just above her left hip bone from a dagger wound she received during training as a young teen.
➝ ☆ A series of Nordic runes tattooed onto the side of her fingers on her left hand. These were crafted in her early 20s and sealed with blood magic for charging. Knowledge in runes will see each symbol reveal an oath to different Gods in turn for their favor.[attr="class","theplot"]PERSONALITY AND TALKING POINTS
• Outward Optimism : There’s an old saying her mother used to repeat over and over to Alilah when she was young. ‘The face we wear and the face others see should never be one and the same.’ No matter the situation and no matter what she feels she has an uncanny way of putting forward a smile and some words of optimism. She’s a ray of sunshine to the rest of the world, even when she may be falling apart at the seams. She’s mastered the art of ‘being strong for everyone else’ and ‘putting on a brave face and facing the day’.
• Playing Extrovert : Communication and excitability : Alilah's communication skills go above and beyond. Her social knowledge and profession allows for just about any situation to be controlled when in conversation. She has a bubbly and outgoing personality for the world that seems to attract people to her and a seemingly carefree and judgement lacking zone about her that makes people feel safe. She's capable of carrying on a conversation even if she doesn't agree or understand the topic morally. She's also someone that can make her own point in various different forms and methods to help get her own point across and when in formal conversation knows how to avoid upsetting others while diffusing volatile situations.
• Conscientiousness : Goals and control : A highly driven woman. Alilah sets goals and completely obliterates them no matter if they're physical or mental. She's always aware of her surroundings, the barriers preventing her from reaching her goals and the end result. Her mind is always working toward the finish line no matter what the goal may be. Her impulse control is astounding in most areas.
• Temper : One thing she seems to have zero control over is her temper. When angered she holds nothing back. She’ll say what she wants to say regardless of how hurtful it sounds and lash out in whatever way she sees fit. She’s been known to physically strike out but her temper never seems to last for long and leaves her in some awkward after talks and situations. She can take just about anything out of context when it comes to her anger.
• Intellectual Curiosity : Needing to know : Curiosity killed the cat? Alilah is a woman who needs answers. While she can communicate effectively, that doesn't always mean those holding the answers are willing to give them up. Her psychological training has left her a powerful tool when she desires something and at times she can dig a little too deep or push a little too hard to get what she wants from somebody. This almost always makes being her friend on a man to man level incredibly difficult if you aren't an open book.
• Amoral : Historical and outdated : Talk about living in the grey area. Alilah's idea of right and wrong, or even punishment, is based on outdated historical systems and family practice. What she considers just and wrong is defined by societies centuries in the past. Murder isn't black and white to her. Blood on her hands means something completely different to monster and eternal damnation. She isn't going to be out here stabbing people in the streets but if someone were to challenge her, sine missione, she's going to follow through.
Alilah was raised to be the proper little girl with the articulate manners and poised stance courtesy of her mother. She has a pretty face but she can play the game of strategy and wit just as well as any man. She is fierce, strong, steadfast and true to herself. Alilah won't hesitate to sacrifice herself for her family, often to the point of self neglect, in that their needs will always come before her own no matter the cost. Even her life. That doesn't mean everything is quite the sunshine and daisies she makes it out to be in life. She can be quite the passive aggressive little queen from time to time when it comes to family and close friends. Her sense of restraint and communication keeps her from being outward to the public. The inspirational words and cheerful encouragement are a mask she's learned to wear well in the public eye. She is sweet at surface face but rather temperamental beneath and in the right company. When she feels safe to be herself. She has been known to have a well hidden side of rage and intellect you'd be surprised to know existed within such a small woman- both of which she takes incredibly seriously. She's highly observant and tends to notice things about others before they're willing to speak on them. Alilah wishes to present the idea of comfort and joy to her community, with a deep tendency to reflect on situations before getting involved or commenting. Alilah enjoys the company of others - though not necessarily outsiders - and will almost always been seen with some friends or family or lugging around her pets. Although she adores her friends she can't stand high anxiety situations of crowds and all the ugliness humanity shows when in large groups. She will avoid them at all costs.
Even though raw emotion can deeply affect her she has a strong resolve when it comes to not giving in and standing her ground. Alilah isn’t easily frightened into backing down when it comes to something she wants or protecting someone she loves. She’s fiercely loyal and will fight to the death to keep the people around her safe. Her inability to handle anger well often leads her into a fit of rage that's short lived and often later filled with regret. However, when she's lost to her emotions she's capable of things that even frighten her at first thought. Alilah has been known to take things a little too personally when they hit close to home and that can lead her into shutdown mode where she acts rather than thinks. That is especially true if you threaten her family. In her relationships she can be selfish and possessive, perhaps even deadly. She takes matters of family and loyalty very seriously. Though to look at her you wouldn't get the immediate feeling of intimidation she is quite capable and willing to defend her own. Alilah has a darker side courtesy of her parents and has the ability to overlook imperfections in those she loves. She has a grey area concerning morals and her eccentric nature in modern society would see her labeled an outcast outside her direct family. She craves intellectual, physical and emotional challenges and pushes herself daily to keep hitting the ground running.[attr="class","theplot"]FAMILY AND HISTORY TIMELINE

(The process of events in this history are in order from Alilah’s point of view)
Nokoma (Alilah) was born to an overjoyed Kristjan and Aela rather unexpectedly on a colder than usual Yule day. Although Alilah had been ahead of schedule upon her birth, she was still relatively healthy with little complications. Yet, there was something odd about her that raised more questions than anyone ever anticipated. The tiny infant proudly displayed two different and oppositional tones of skin across both her face and torso. Patches of copper hair were tightly woven into a beautiful shade of raven and even her eyes struggled for dominance with one being the brightest shade of azure they had ever seen and the other mirroring the deepest forests. Although the Montilyet family were no strangers to Metamorphmagus traits it was apparent this was something different. For when she did thrive for a few months she would even out her appearance to one or the other (as a typical meta would do in favoring one parent or the other) yet when upset and unable to be consoled she would always sport a mixed form. The older she became the more important it became to determine the cause, and since she could sustain a third and unique form, the determination was made that she was not one girl but two : A chimera sustaining two unique genetic markers. A girl and a sister, a twin, in one body.
Alilah was the only child born to house Montilyet but that was more to do with the situation of her parents than anything else. Her father’s wife had several children (unknown to her and to the world) that she passed onto the Laszlo family to raise alongside her love Arseni. Nicole Scipio had a life of her own to live and she was content to marry Kristjan and uphold her family name as was expected of her. Yet, she stayed in Switzerland and apart from claiming to be Alilah’s mother and the occasional rude interaction with the girl .. she was anything but a loving mother. Because Alilah’s biological mother was not wed to her father, and because Nicole’s pregnancy at the time was known, it was easy to pass her off as the real[ child of the woman. It was necessary not only for image but for house Montilyet to have an heir, a condition of Kristjan to Nicole to be able to continue her love affair in Russia. Alilah’s mother “figure” was always her biological mother, Aela, though she had no idea throughout her youth. The woman taught her everything from manners to how to wield a sword.
Alilah never questioned why it was that she had two tones of skin. One white as snow and the other a deep shade of mocha. A complication of birth they had said and who was she to question it? They wanted her to keep her appearance suited to the family - white skin, blonde hair. Again, she had no reason to question it and of course she wanted to carry her family legacy. Hence how her third form was born. Nicole cared little for Kristjan and even less for Alilah’s carefree nature which she blamed on the man's nurturing nature. In her eyes, Alilah’s blood left her better than the rest of the world and she should strive to do them proud. Typical Scipio pride. Her father never seen it as such and often let Alilah get away with just about anything. His marriage to the French woman only a means to strengthen old bloodlines as his father had put it. Alilah left unrest in the household and between the two parents. She spent a lot of time between homes and lands and her relationships were often strained. Her mother refused to take home in Iceland and her father's involvement in Switzerland was minimal. She would later learn she only went to those Alps to maintain the appearance of being the woman’s child.
To say Alilah was spoiled growing up would be a massive understatement. Unlike a lot of pureblood children she wasn’t forced into music lessons and tea parties- though her mother had more than one objection to that little fact and shipped her off to socials at every opportunity. Alilah had the run of the house most days in Iceland, and was richly indulged in her interests. Nicole didn't seem to mind the freedom from the burden she felt with Alilah and saw it as a means to an end. Alilah spent more time painting and snacking than she did studying under her father's watchful eye. She was an award winning ribbon dancer of all things. Alilah just attributed her movements to that of swords and martial arts. She was taught her manners of course, and was well versed in her family history and their various rivals though none so much as the Laszlo family. A lot of the elitist propaganda was hidden from her courtesy of her father. The man taught his daughter survival skills and marksman abilities. She learned the Montilyet's rich cultural history and how to live off the land. She was prepped to take her place in the Wolves, the family legacy, when she came of age. Fancy parties and their rules such as her mother forced upon her confused her and for the most part made her uncomfortable.
Despite her unmotherly approach, Nicole thought Alilah to be the most beautiful girl of the children born to their generation and as such worth more when it came to choosing a suitable mate. It would seem Nicole was not the only who thought such as Alilah was known for her sunshine and copper shaded locks paired with deep red lips in a world she was not accustomed to. The Montilyet family hadn't a care for what the circles of Switzerland thought of them but Nicole Scipio took it close to heart as a native and prominent citizen. It didn't take her mother long to arrange her marriage to an equally upstanding family in Russia, one Alilah had no idea her “mother” knew .. intimately. Alilah was less than pleased and even less thrilled upon meeting the man she'd been given to. He had an unusual sense of humor and appeared kind so long as she followed the typical societal rules. Alilah, however, had no intention of playing along nor being named wife to Ashley Laszlo.
Her mother wished her to gain her citizenship and return to Switzerland but neither she nor her father were so inclined. She attended Durmstrang out of spite for her mother who wished her to attend school closer to her. She excelled at charms and was moderate in core classes while exceeding in electives and interests. She used her summers to dive into further physical training styles about the world. It was perhaps the only good thing that came out of being bounced from place to place, she got to learn various old world style fighting techniques. It was around this time she met a boy of an opposing family with dark curls and honey green eyes the likes of which she'd never seen. Despite being promised to the boy's own brother (Ashley) she found herself craving the solace of his rich accent and daring spirit. The pair had an odd relationship based on mutual interests and even things they themselves didn't quite understand about the other. Still, not everything in life is perfect and they needed a way to get her out of her marriage to Ashley. The boy’s mother had a simple solution to the issue of heirs. Alilah gives a child to Laszlo house’s heir and in so doing fulfils her obligations to Ashley via contract and blood and she.. Can live happily ever after with Emmett in the end.
As a young teen she never thought to approach her parents with them fighting so consistently. Emmett’s parents were much the same. What could they do? Make mistakes, of course. The followed through at the young age of sixteen with no small amount of regret. A morning after potion and determination later and still she found herself pregnant with twins. She was married exceptionally young (to Emmett, as Ambriella agreed) though the lingering fear the two children would do something to mark the Scipio/Laszlo name, it was allowed by all parents involved. She left Durmstrang heavily pregnant and gave birth to her first children. Twins - Theodore and Freydis whom she .. regrettably .. gave to Laszlo house as promised. Though her father could never understood why she did this, and she was too terrified to tell him the truth, it was .. done. She tried to follow the lives of the children she had with Ashley but it was moderately useless for Russia was a fortress. Depression followed, naturally. It would take her months to regain her sense of self and, despite everything, give Emmett his first child - her third. A son born without sight, Sixten. She lost Aela (her biological mother) though the how and why are still unknown.
She picked up an interest in her father's Wolves as part of her heritage though she didn't outright take a murderous role. She knew what loyalty meant and where her attentions should be within the organization. Emmett was off to Auror training and within the next eight months the pair were already welcoming their next child, Lilith. (She had a twin that was stillborn) Emmett seemed to take to her father as if he were his own son and his place in the Wolves was evident. Perhaps moreson than Alilah originally realized. Alilah and Emmett were both struggling slightly to maintain careers and a family but that thought had come too late as she announced a short few months later she was once again expecting. The set of twins would be the last children they would ever have. At least, that was according to the healers who had identified a problem within her womb. Emmett and Alilah couldn't have cared. They already had a lovely family and little Iris was born with a few faults that required constant attention. Emmett's career had taken off and she had focused her attentions on the home with a private practice in psychology on the side. Her degree in psychology had been hard won with all the hurdles standing in her way but with her father and husband always a call away she managed to keep her head in the game. She had never been more thankful than when she could hold a sword and shield again, content she had done what was necessary to give her and Emmett a fulfilling family life. Things began to settle and Alilah set to raising her children as her father would wish rather than her mother. The woman was hardly a present figure in their lives.
Alilah was ecstatic to be training again. Maybe a little more than she should have been. She took to training in every avenue of glima she could find with a passion for combat. Emmett's support allowed her to travel and his encouragement seen her always on the run even when she would rather be home. Honestly, she needed the occasional push to keep going when she felt as though she had hit a wall and perhaps he recognized this. Things seemed to settle into place for years until young Iris started showing signs of an ability her youngest sister shared as a seer. Sixten seemed to embrace the darker side of life and was consistently following his own path when not trailing after his father. Little Lilith was exceptionally beautiful and knew how to work the system to get what she wanted. She was fiercely independent and took on the role of daddy's little princess as if she were born for it. Siri never let the attention to Iris stand in her way. Iris was the baby and it was apparent. She took to her mother's skirt and odd ways as if second nature. Alilah would unfortunately go on to fall pregnant again only to lose the child late into the pregnancy. They were an oddly loyal family if nothing else. Iris painted symbols on Alilah's weapons and spent odd hours watching her mother train. By the time the girls were all off to school Alilah had made quite the name for herself in the former interest of old world combat.
Alilah maintained a few jobs in psychology where time permitted. Alilah and Emmett went on to welcome a surprise son, Kristjan, in late winter of 2043, and though she initially thought herself incapable of raising a child in the chaos of the world, the thought and child grew in her heart. By their teen years had come to a close, Iris had ran off to be with a boy in a famed rock band while Siri had opted for university. There wasn't much she could do but deal in the best way she knew how, to fight off her emotions. Sixten followed his father and grandfather straight into the Wolves. Lilith won the title of Miss Universe Iceland and found herself tangled up with an old friend of her father’s. Things began to move at a rapid pace. Before she knew it she found herself in the sights of the Grindelwald family as the new war began to take over the world. She lost her father early on in 2043 and struggled to find herself again after. The missing pieces of her childhood and identity are slowly starting to form .. maybe even haunt her.[attr="class","theplot"]THEME SONG
