Character name: None
Real Name: Detective Reyevenn Jaye Pride
Race: Human (with Sidhe ancestry)
Archetype: The Investigator
Appearance: Reye stands at 5’3” tall with tan olive skin and lithe body, long raven black hair and hazel-green eyes.
History: Reyevenn was the youngest in a pair of fraternal twins to born Matthew and Mary Pride just outside of Skyline City 25 years ago. Her sister Larkyn and she spent their first few years living a normal human life often visiting their Great Aunt Bonnie Reade who lived on an estate just an hour away. Not once did they ever really question why their father was rarely home. Soon, it came time for school and their mother insisted that her children learn the ‘arts’ such as Piano and Gymnastics. The girls readily agreed, but soon found interests in other musical instruments: Reyevenn in the violin and Larkyn in the guitar.
At the age of 8, the two girls found another after school passion: Karate; however, it wasn’t until their father was home from a business trip were they able to convince their mother that it was a good idea. “They’ll need the knowledge later dear,” Their father had said, “Why not let them learn now?” The two had no idea what this meant but did not care they had gotten what they wanted.
Then, at the age of 10, Larkyn began to act weird. Her hair began to gradually turn white and weird things began to happen around her. The twins were terrified, but their family was ecstatic. Larkyn, they said, was showing the first signs of her powers and Reyevenn was soon to follow. Suddenly, the two were visiting their Great Aunt more often and she began to teach – or rather, tried to teach – the two various spells and how to control their abilities.
As it turned out, their family was not particularly normal but rather descended from the Sidhe, a collective name for members of the Seelie and Unseelie courts. Her Great Aunt was the retired ‘Queen Mab’ and it was her hope that one of the twins would take her place. Her father turned out to be ‘The Horned King’ and his ‘business meetings’ were actually meetings with fellow super beings about a growing threat to their planet: The WarGod.
Queen Mab came out of retirement and worked along side The Horned King and several other powered humans to stop the destructive force known as the WarGod. Unfortunately, Queen Mab did not survive the battle, but all were considered Heroes at the WarGod’s defeat.
Her family constantly insisted that the fact she turned out to be ‘normal’ was no embarrassment to them, but this didn’t stop Reye from feeling horribly left out. Angry at her own inabilities, she focused on her school work and extra curricular activities. By the time she graduated High School as cum laud, the woman had won a few metals in gymnastics, became the fourth chair in the Skyline City Junior Orchestra, and had even become a Second Don Black Belt in Karate. None of it was good enough for her, because though she had excelled, she was never the best and could never live up to her sister’s reputation as Pan, the Horned King’s side kick.
At the age of 17, Reyevenn went on to focus on college, working on a degree in Criminal Justice and Investigation. At the age of 21, she had earned her bachelor’s degree and went into the Skyline City Police force where she has worked the past four years. She has recently earned her title as Detective.
Personality: Reyevenn is a focused individual; her desire to solve the case and catch the culprit often overshadows any sense of self preservation. Many complain that she has no sense of humor; this isn’t true, it’s just very dry. She is best known around her piers for her peculiar way of emotional management: it seems that the angrier or more frightened she gets, the calmer she becomes… until she can be calm no more.
