Name:
Philipa Elisabeth Godfrey.
-

Age:
She is seventeen.
-

Culture:
She is a human; Oserian.
-

Story & Biography:
Philipa Godfrey was born to a wealthy family in the Oserian farmlands, where her father managed a plantation and her mother owned a tailor shop down the lane. Her father had grandiose intentions of raising his family to noble heights; though his wife lost her fertility after the birth of their first and only child, Philipa. Quickly after his realisation that his wife, Adela Godfrey, was unable to conceive, he fell into a short-tempered livelihood, showing quiet dissent for his daughter. Philipa grew up overly ambitious, always at an attempt to please her father. When her father passed from a heart burst, the plantation quickly fell into chaos and the investments the Godfrey family had made were failing.

At seventeen, Philipa has grown into a beautiful, well-educated woman with white-blonde tresses and striking blue eyes. Her carmine lips and high-set cheekbones make her appear to be a sultry beauty in amongst the weathered faces of the Oserian farmers and merchants, thus allowing her to pass as a woman wealthier than what she truly is. Ambitious, intelligent and manipulative, Philipa utilises both her intellect and her beauty to charm and to obtain what she wants. Though her constant desire to be validated by her peers and short-temper prevent her from living a perfect life, as well as the additional weight of caring for her depressed and widowed mother; Philipa continually strives for what her father once dreamed of.

Part 4 of 4
Open-ended questions
At least three must be answered. Delete the spares(if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each of the answered questions.

Question 1
You stumble outside into the open air after some heavy drinking in an Oserian tavern. Just before you're about to pass an alleyway, a hooded man rushes out of it and runs for it - seemingly, he has both a blade and some jewellery on him. You take a quick peek in the alleyway to see a feminine figure collapsed on the ground, holding her hands over a bleeding wound in her torso. The thief is about to escape and the woman seems in critical condition. You...

Answer:
Philipa's marine orbs widen as her gaze finds the collapsed figure, lower lip trembling with unease and fright. Her slim fingers quake as they tighten about the fabric of her sand-coloured skirts, chest clenching with immediate panic. "Help!" She screams in a shrill voice, still not wholly sure of what she has witnessed. Her feet begin to propel forward as she breaks into a hasty dash. "Somebody," she breathes, white-blonde tresses pluming in the evening wind, "no, somebody come quick!" Throwing herself down beside the fallen woman, Philipa begins to press her small hands against the wound. The stink of the alleyway, the warmth of the blood, the cool kiss of the dying woman's skin... Philipa releases another shriek, eyes filling with tears.


Question 2
You are on your way to the Korsian city of Telth to sell some wares. Upon reaching the front gates you are stopped by the guard. They deny you entry for the time being as the traffic into the city is too high. You are effectively forced to wait in the refugee camp located between the two gates for the time being. The camp is
filled with shopping stalls and refugees sleeping on the floor. How do you spend your time in the camp?

Answer:
Philipa moves through the lanes of canvas homes and stores, gaze searching with subtle yet critical interest. There are sad faces, lost faces, weathered faces... there would be those here seeking fulfilment. She moves with a swayed gait; her shoulders drawn back with her white-blonde locks brushed in a smooth sea down her back. She ensures she wears her rings and the glinting gold necklace her mother, Adela, often wore when her husband was alive. The beggars stare and Philipa offers them sympathetic glances. At some moments, she offers them a coin from her purse. Yet most of the shrunken shells of men are not the sort she is looking for... she intends to raise a garrison. If she must first acquire sellswords, drunks and the sons of merchants in search of something more than selling goods; then that is what she will do.

Question 4
In the midst of battle, you find yourself approaching a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly in terror as they cradle one of the dead. Enemy forces begin to advance in the distance and you know you have to act fast. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. They continue to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name is despair. Then the soldier glances up to see you - with your weapon up - but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. You…

Answer:
Philipa tightens her grip about the hilt of her dirk. With trembling fingers, she thrusts the blade into the soldier's throat, releasing a choked sob as the pour of warm blood gushes out over her hands. She tightens her mouth, twisting. The man falls limp and she watches as he slowly sags to the earth. She stabs him once more in the chest. She knows what her father taught her when she was young. The man was broken. The man was breathing but he was not alive; not after the death of his comrade. Philipa brushes at her tears, staining her cheeks with the dead man's blood. "I'm sorry," she whispers, dropping her dirk. She hears the beating of the enemy horde's hooves. She turns and she flees.
