This wand was of an unusual but highly prized black cherry finish that always made her stand out from the crowd in classes and casting.

BOGGART Takes the shape of strange symbol that most don't recognize and it changes based on the day. When translated the symbol will reveal its meaning as "life".

➝ Probably close to death in some far away country.
➝ Talk to me about Cygnus. Just fucking don't.
➝ Talk poorly of the Laszlos if you'd like to live.
➝ Challenge me either at work or at home in any sort of authoritative way.
➝ Expect me to play nice.
➝ Dig into my life beyond the surface value. You've been warned.
➝ Try to get to know me. You don't know me. You'll never know me. I prefer it that way.
TELL ME YOUR VICE(S):
➝ Max. She has separation anxiety with him.
➝ Circe's general appearance is distinguishing enough on its own. Her skin is white as snow with deeply contrasting and beautifully defined long raven tresses. She has eyes that mirror two distinctly different yet same color schemes giving them an incredibly rare turquoise glimmer. Her brows are naturally thin with marked design and everything about her appears orderly and well kept.
➝ There's a tattoo on the line of her left collarbone with the Roman numerals XIV. (Her tarot)
➝ Circe has little freckles on her shoulders and down her back from being in the sun when she was younger. Kinda looks like a small galaxy of stars and constellations.[attr="class","theplot"]PERSONALITY AND TALKING POINTS
• Dangerous - Honestly and obviously. She's not oblivious to her power though she doesn't flaunt it in my the same way as many of her status do. She's quiet and observative and leaves more to be questioned than she's actually willing to answer. She won't shy away from death or necessity. She's not above being cruel or callous if the situation is in need of it. This is pretty steady and common knowledge about her.
• Perfectionist - Nothing will ever be good enough. There’s no such thing as no more room to improve. Every task could be done better and every detail must be just right. Every person could be better. Every action could be improved. She blames this trait on her obsessive need to keep historical dates in the correct order but perhaps her upbringing is more to blame. Better formed braids of hair. Better marks on her assignments. Better choices in men. Get it together, Circe.
• Bossy Boots - Knowledge and the ambition are a deadly combination when you put them with someone who has a large and in charge job and life like Circe. Even she knows she’s a bit of a bossy boots but she doesn’t let it stop her if it means she gets the job done. Honestly, what are hurt feelings compared to success? Often she can forget the people she’s talking to are human and hurt more than a few feelings in the process. This isn't exclusive to people she works with and translates easily into her personal life with servants and other people unfortunate enough to be beneath her heel.
• Ambitious/Hard working - Circe is a girl who chases what she wants and there isn’t a thing that will stand in her way of getting it. (Not everything a person wants is considered moreal) She isn’t afraid of rolling her sleeves up and getting dirty to get where she needs to go. (Dirty or bloody? You decide) She’ll spend every last late night pushing everyone to do their best and she won’t go home until she’s accomplished what she set out to do.
Circe used to be a woman full of both life and love. A quiet sort of warmth could be found radiating from bright eyes and an eager heart. She used to take great pride in her honest work of history and would spend hours a day translating and handling artefacts that could improve the lives of millions. Her work used to have a meaning outside of herself. Her acting was a simply hobby that gave her an excuse to sing and dance and share the love and joy of historical and modern works with the world. She once was a girl that everyone hoped to know and call friend for they would never find themselves alone when in need. She was always there to gently reassure and support. This girl was shielded from the world by both of her fathers and moderately rejected by her mother for it. It kept her from basic Barkanova ideals until the day had come and gone, she lost her father(s) and before the world could blink .. the girl they once knew was gone.
Circe has very much been defined by the last two decades of her life. She's somewhat cold to the world and unwilling to let genuine emotion stain her heart again or place her in the way of harm. She's calm but calculated and any joy she got from her work before is now just a means to an end. Power, even. She's unnervingly quiet but that by no means suggests her presence in a room isn't loud. She no longer wants to help the world. Half of the time she doesn't even want to help those that she considers friends still. She's loyal to her brothers and years of abuse have made her numb to certain aspects of life that others both enjoy and find terrifying. She's on the constant hunt for knowledge and improvement and she hasn't a care for what she has to do or who she has to step on along the way to get there. After all, the world never cared about stepping on her, why should she care about it? Humanity as a whole is a disease. However, she's still an avid environmental warrior where historical sites are concerned. Nature never did anything to her, right?
She finds it difficult to take joy in small things anymore. The ordinary and childish whims and concerns of her fellow humans are boring and repetitive. Childish. Yet, there is a part of her, however small, that does see the woman she's become with much regret. She carries a deep sorrow for things she can't change and the person she will never be again. At times she can try to go back .. but it mostly ends in her being frustrated with herself and her actions and what she's lost that she can never get back. She carries moderate purist ideals where she never did before. She carries weapons where she used to hold her heart. It's too late to go back now. Isn't it?[attr="class","theplot"]FAMILY AND HISTORY TIMELINE

TRIGGER WARNING : Domestic violence - murder - psychological torture
Circe’s birth is one of most unusual circumstances if only because the thought of Ambriella Barkanova and love is ludacris. Perseus Parkinson shared her ambition and lust for death in a way that her intended (Arseni Laszlo) did not. The child was a .. not so happy afterthought. Yet, as the idea of parenthood grew on him, Perseus became protective of the little girl born in his ancestral home in Ireland. Despite Ambriella’s marriage it was evident long before the start that Arseni had a mind and .. other things .. elsewhere. He didn’t seem to mind what his wife was doing on the side and in front of his face nor did he care that she in turn knew he spent his nights in Switzerland with Nicole. Such was the way of marriages for dying lines of precious blood. Circe was named a child of Arseni’s line and he was allowed to see her as much or as little as he could ever wish. A luxury Ambriella did not allow Nicole of children born to Arseni. Perhaps she feared her inability to produce heirs would remove the power of the Laszlo name? Perseus didn’t know nor did he care. Circe never bothered to ask as, well, she never knew. Secrets were well kept between the adults in their lives and by the time Circe was old enough to know the implications of her parentage she was likewise old enough to know the fear of speaking out of turn or displeasing her mother. And so the secrets were kept.[attr="class","theplot"]THEME SONG
