“I will take responsibility for what I have done. If I must fall, I will rise each time a better man." - Dalinar Kohlin, Oathbringer
Ciara hasn't always been a good person. Even before she was taken to Arcadia she'd been petty and cruel, and hidden it all behind a smiling face. The Devouring Abyss and Xekanius' corruption didn't do her any favors either, but everything changed when she emerged from the thorns. She was no longer a teenager, no longer a demonic general. The Winter Court aided her upon her escape with no strings attached and it softened something within her, set her upon a new trod. Today Ciara actively works to pay forward the aid she'd been given fresh out of the Hedge. She still slips sometimes, of course. It's hard to overcome years of conditioning all at once. Over the past months has grown deeply protective of those she calls friends, and all of Summer's wrath in her is focused at the ones responsible for all of this.

Theater Buff - Ciara can often be found on and off Broadway. She works as a choreographer with an emphasis on combat choreography. If you're involved in the theater community or a fan of it, there are plenty of opportunities to connect!
Need a Ride? - Ciara picks up extra work as an Uber driver when she has free time. Anyone need a ride?
Open Studio Time - Ciara dances for fun and fitness, in a variety of styles from ballet to ballroom. Shall we dance?
Summer Fields - Ciara isn't the most dangerous person on the training fields. She's barely a novice in many common martial arts, but she's always willing to learn and offer an education in her own elemental and sword styles in return.
The highest of distinctions is service to others. - Ciara is active in the freehold on a personal level. When someone needs help, she's there to offer it. Need a place to stay? She's got a couch! Need a meal or two? She'll get it for you. Need help with a problem? She's got a sword to fall back on if talking things out doesn't work.
Elemental Tutelage - Ciara is very willing to enter into Pupil's Devotion oaths with others, both teaching and learning interesting contracts. She is willing to teach others the Elemental benefits for 'Elemental Weapon', 'Primal glory', 'Elemental Fury', Summon the Loyal Servant', Mastermind's Gambit', 'Murkblur', 'Portents and Visions', and 'Fae Cunning'.

Once Upon a Summer Dream
[ edit ]
Mask: Ciara is tall and well built with dark hair cut in a short bob. She can usually be found dressed pretty casually in jeans or leggings and a tee.
Mien: The first thing that stands out is the halo of burning red fire that rings her head and casts a dim pool of light around her. It gives of a sulfuric black smoke that wreaths and stains her platinum blonde hair with the exact shade of black that appears in her Mask. She has delicately pointed ears and a distinct reddish tint to her eyes. When she expends Glamour the smoke tends to flare out and countour around her as if she has wings even though none are apparent.
Mantle: Summer's light is fresh and clean, especially compared to the demonic essence of Ciara's Mien. Dappled beams illuminate the black smoke from her halo, cutting through the sulfer smell with the scent of fresh laundry drying on a line.
