Cassia Mercier

I'm sorry what were you saying? I was thinking about the scent of rain drops on gardenia petals...

Description: Slightly above average height for a woman she stands with a slender built that causes her to look a touch willowy. Long blonde hair is sun-bleached to the color of a golden wheat field. Her eyes are such a light blue they almost appear to be made of glass. Her mouth is wide and her mouth lush, but it is usually pressed into a thoughtful moue or curved into an annoyed frown.

Personality: Thoughtful and yet disinterested. Cassia is no great charmer but neither is she some great intellect. She is no crazed dreamer. No stoic warrior. She is a quiet, pensive woman with a changeable attitude most of the time. Prone to lapsing into thoughtful silence, and obsessing over her work she is not the most social of women. A touch mercurial she leans toward quiet and taciturn with the occasional bright spots of merriment or temper.

Background: Cassia Mercier grew up with a comfortable life for a commoner. A scion of a merchant family, but she wasn't particularly close with her cousins. Her mother having "married" in, while her father was the Mercier-- who died when Cassia was barely five years old. The Merciers made sure she was cared for but she wasn't particularly close with them, and her mother wasn't very interested in pushing for a family connection.

Cassia has always had a strong sense of smell and as a young girl would often be bothered by strong scents. Which was unfortunate since her mother was a fisherwoman. Cassia simply cannot stand the smell of fish and so refused to follow in her footsteps. Leaving under the same roof as a fisherman drove her to learn how to create other scents. She fell in love with the act of creating perfumes, of distilling oils, and creating things that smelt _good_.

...and that's what she's been doing ever since.
