All Roads Lead to Amber
Former Admiral of the Navy, Princess of Amber, and Daughter to Rilga Ilesine from Begma
Bethany is a spitting image of her mother. Her skin is tanned nicely from the hours sepnd above deck. Her hair has a few bright golden strand here and there running through the dirty blonde locks. It is usually held tightly back in an up tight bun. Her eyes were once the soft brown of her mothers, but once she walked the pattern, they faded to an emotionless gray. She has a very strong athletic build, which is covered up quite concervativly. And so, to put it short, Bethany has high potential to be a beautiful woman, but she hides it greatly.
As a note, during the Rebellion, her other half had a different look. Circe’s skin was cold and pale. It made her dark crimson eyes eerie to stare into. Her hair was always a mess of bloody reds and brushed up against her backside. Opposite of Bethany, she embrassed her attractive body, showing it off at the most opportune moments.
The two personalities are opposites.
Bethany is stern, hard working, and serious.
Circe is chaotic, destructive, and a good time.
The only thing they have in common is that most people consider them to be a monster in some manner.
For the longest time, Bethany Barimen was the youngest child of Oberon. Because of that, she has always felt like she was catching up with her other siblings. They all had thier plans, they all had there things in order. She never knew what to do. The one thing she did know was that she would not let herself fall behind.
First it was the Pattern. The idea of it was terrifying. She did not know how to approach it. All of her older siblings had Dworkin, but he was gone before she was old enough to walk. She never asked for help. She did not want to look weak. Eventutally she walked the pattern, and afterwards something happened to her.
Maybe it was the disapperance of her mother that was truly affecting her, but Bethany became something cold. Her eyes lost any light of joy and she became known as a monster among her crew. All she became was work. She had her navy and she had Amber. That is all that mattered. She would wipe out anyone that threatened it. Pirates, unsubdinates, it did not matter. Bethany’s slogan for the navy was “You will die for Amber.” She expected all of her men to put in the same effort she did. If they didn’t, she would take it from them. People were terrified of her.
The Sorcerers Rebellion changed her yet again. It was revealed that what was really wrong with Bethany was that she was not alone in her body. A notorious pirate that she had been chasing for years shared the same body. When ‘Talon’ got a hold of her, he forced this other half, Circe, to take over. Circe is the exact opposite of Bethany. She is chaotic and destructive. Circe took out all of the bottled of anger on everything around her when she got out.
Slowly, the trend continued. Yes she was a shapeshifter, but Bethany deep down continued to change. After the incident with Caiuss, Circe realized that someone actaully cared for her. Talon stood by her side as much as he could through those three weeks of pain and blood. She then put her own life in his hands. She learned that there was someone that she could trust. She had someone she could count on. Circe never had that before.
Unfortuantly, she found out something even more at the worst moment possible. As ‘Talon’, now revealed as Marek, layed there maimed in her arms, she felt something she had never felt before; love. The two of them confessed thier love to each other, but it was too late. He was riped out of her arms and destroied. On top of that, her freedom was stripped from her.
Bethany now is returned, only to suffer for all of Circe’s actions. She lost her postion. She lost any trust she had in her father, and she became known as a shamed person. She was the only person left in Amber that was on Marek’s side. The problem is, Bethany was not that person, Circe was. What is is now she is suffering for someone else’s wrong doings?
