Overarching Power

Intuitive Aptitude

Abilities & Limitations

The power to instantly learn and understand the inner workings and complexity of an organism, subject or object without the need of long term specialized training or education. The ability is innate and can't be turned off. It allows for the bearer to "just know" how something works or how to fix, alter or enhance the workings of any object. Also has the ability to enhance her sense of Instinct or Discernment, she often can sense danger and The intentions of those around her.

Because the power is innate she can become overwhelmed in situations where she is forced to utilize her gift. She relies heavy on suppression drug therapy to dull down her gift in situations where she must be in contact with highly technical machinery or technology. The ability often causes severe migraines and physical pain if she pushes herself to take on too much knowledge at once, her ability is still one she's attempting to control.

Skills

Extreme Loyalty: Sybelle's strict Malchite upbringing has left her with certain values that are unshakable. Loyalty without limits to those she holds dear among them. Her family is paramount in this view and second only to the man she views to be the love of her life, her chosen one. Although she is a creature of true kindness and faith she is fierce when she feels those she love are being crossed and a side rarely shown can be seen when she believes members of her inner circle are being threatened.

Ivy League:With the utilization of her gift once under control thanks to the institute, Sybelle has known no limitation when it has come to her higher education. Holding several degrees to her credit in Business and Art History to name a few she has achieved what others consider as Ivy League level which only greater assist her in her profession.

Linguistics: Linguistics: the art of language and phonetics comes naturally and as a result the mastery of several languages only serves to enhance her day to day dealings within the art world. She often finds herself the point person chosen to deal with major transactions in the melting pot that is Ark thanks in part to this attribute.

Charisma:Charismatic would be an understatement when describing this woman, her poise and beauty coupled with an instinctual kindness presents itself in this truly intoxicating creature. Often found as the object of adoration her empathetic view, distaste for conflict and her ability to simply read a room tend to give her the reputation of being quite the charmer. The result of this attribute often leads others to simply gravitate to her presence and accommodate her wishes both in her personal and professional arenas.

Runner: Sybelle's gift requires her to find ways to literally get out of her own head and running allows her to remove focus from the world around her. Sybelle has been running as a means of mental escape since she was a small child, for that reason alone she is quite fast and regularly competes in marathons when ever her busy work life allows.

Dance: Similar to running, dancing allows Sybelle a way to escape her own gift. Embracing many styles enhances both her balance and overall agility. She finds herself most enthusiastic about hip hop and Latin ball room style however she loves all forms of dance and regularly practices with a group of other performers. If ever there is a dance floor and loud music you will find her in the middle of the floor.

Weaknesses

Loyalty: To the extreme she feels loyalty, she can often become blinded by the faults of those she holds most dear going to great lengths to keep them safe and to hide at times obvious truths from herself. She tends to believe the good first and foremost and attempts to explain away the faults of those around her. This blonde faith in others often finds her in venerable positions.

Physical limitation: Although quite fast with above average agility, Sybelle is not physically strong. Often bested in strength by unyielding olive jar lids, beer bottle caps and heavy packages she often finds it necessary to rely on the firearms and biceps of others to assist in her general fragility.

Insomnia: Her gift has grown with her age beginning in nearly an unnoteable measure to the peek of its existence within the institute. Controlling her gift requires her physical routine and certain eccentricities that she often refers to as her quirks. When her attribute manifests unchecked by the balance she has constructed she can often suffer debilitating headaches and bouts of sleeplessness which manifest in the form of extreme caffeine addiction and a very very organized closet.

Suppression Therapy Dependency: Sybelle heavily relies on what others consider to be a leash from the government, she's terrified of what her life would be like without the drugs that help her function in a highly technology driven society. Without suppression medication Sybelle's gift has the potential to drive her to madness, a person can simply know too much...

Personality

Sybelle is someone that other people might hate if she weren't so kind. On the surface she seems to lead a charmed existence having been born a rare beauty to devoted parents with means and influence. She grew up wanting for nothing with access to the best private tutors and seemed to land a dream job straight out of the institute affording her a posh home, friends in all the highest circles and a fast track in the Art world. Her easy nature and inclusive mind set allows others to see that deep down she delights in getting to know people and hasn't been effected by the wealth and privilege that usually surrounds her.

Sybelle is an optimist at her core, naturally empathetic to a fault and would rather help give to others than to enjoy the spoils of a lucrative career. She loves art and discovering new places, the solitude of nature and quiet moments. Very down to earth she understands the game of the money and influence her life in steeped within and although she enjoys playing it she is also very well aware how shallow it all can be. Sybelle is very focused in the concept of harmony and is slow to anger, fast to forgive. She can be overly affectionate at times and hugs inappropriately... She loves, love and could be described as often overly tactile to a fault, she can't pass a small child or a puppy without engaging... Sybelle has never failed to make a new friend and attempts to see the very best in others.

History

Sybelle was a child that simply always knew how things worked but her mother often explained it away as her simply being a very bright girl, not wishing to believe it had to to with any sort of ability. Sybelle's mother, a devote Malachite was blessed by many pregnancies but was blessed with one living child and so she did her very best to shield her daughters growing gift from the world as she would not be parted from her little girl. Sybelle grew up believing it was a perfectly natural thing to simply fix her own toys or alter them to work in an enhanced, being labeled as creative or merely inventive. She rarely cried out for help but rather helped herself and so she was labeled a happy and good natured child although with every year she grew her abilities grew as well and soon the gift she possessed could not simply be explained away as easily.

It was the night of her eleventh birthday that altered the course of her life and began what would be her dependency on the suppressive therapy she has now come to rely on. Her father who had up to this point doted upin her though she was merely a Carrier bought for her a rather costly gift, an in demand amazing new gaming console, it was the lasted addition with all the accessories, It being -the-hot gift of the year. It was what any Tweens father would assume to be the prefect gift... She cried to the point if hysterics when it was unwrapped and the party that was supposed to be a wonderful celebration ended in her hysterics. She would never forget the spanking she received from her father that night, a very strict Malachite household did not have their only daughter acting in such an ungrateful and willful manner among guests.

It was not until the morning they found her over the gaming system in tears with her fathers tools strewn everywhere and the entire system in pieces that it started to become clear.. Her mothers plan to keep her only child from the institute had failed. The explanation Sybelle gave about how the circuits could be rerouted to make things faster, how the processor was too limited for the actual game code... Details and knowledge she would have no way of possessing.

It was the last day she spent at home and the last day her father held her, touched her ever again. Either from extreme guilt of terror over what her life would be with such an overwhelming ability their relationship never recovered. It was how she came to be at the institute, how she won a measure more of her mothers adoration who like she was one of the gifted. It was also how she came to meet a boy who would grow into the man who she held above all others... Vels Kruger.

The institute was a place of refuge for someone like Sybelle, so many around her resented the program and the therapy but with it she could control her ability and finally find some peace in her own mind. She excelled there learning all she could when ever she could and very easily made friends with her gift held in check and she learning to utilize it for its good and keep at bay its limitations. With a new way to utilize her gifts to find success in life she found herself gaining both praise and recognition for her ability to master languages and various academic subjects. It was during these years she came to know Vels and often to rely on him for his kindness and his open nature, they made fast friends in those years growing up together.

Being tier three she was able to leave at the age of 18 and from there was sent to the finest institutes of higher learning that still existed gaining favor and building a reputation in the art circles. She thrived in the art community, it allowing he to use her gifts and skills to reach a new path for the launch of her career. She took every opportunity to explore a new exhibit and on one of these explorations she was discovered by her now mentor and boss, the owner of the most influential museum space in the whole of the city, London Russell. London was a collector of all things and had wealth beyond measure in his particular circle, he appreciated beauty in all forms so for him to begin to attempt to add Sybelle to his collection was not a surprise but discovering her passion and knowledge for the art within his museum she landed her first internship instead at only 18 years old which was unheard of in any circle.

Sybelle worked her way from an intern to in house curator and from there to a dealer to the present day, now curating two traveling exhibits for The Lord Museum of fine art as well as dealing in the upper class of art world. And though her life seems blessed upon the surface every year that had passed her gift has grown and with that her need to maintain the repression therapy has grown as well. She appears each moth to take the governmental shot and frequently makes a little call to a dealer on the black market to secure her own private supply which has caused a dependably she hides from the world at large.

Appearance

OPTIONAL: Sybelle has long dark brown hair and dark honey colored eyes, she stands 5'6" without the help of heels she is often seen sporting. She has one scar at the inside of her left wrist of unknown origin and two tattoos: one beneath the scar in very tiny cursive writing, a quote from Alice in wonderland "we're all mad here" as well as a small artfully made outline as if copied from a sketch of a rabbit tattooed on the side of her ribs just beneath her left breast.
The alarm sounded, it had been going off for sometime but she was already awake and had been for some time Sybelle was on the treadmill keeping a steady pace, music blaring as her feet struck the spinning track and her eyes dead ahead focusing on nothing but the beat of her own foot falls in time to the music.

It was a very old song blaring from an era long gone, a relic but she loved the music from that time and so she let a female lead singer complain on about love being a battlefield and she sang a few lyrics here and there as the wounds rang true. Love was indeed a battlefield... No promises was right Pat she thought to herself now as the song continued, how interesting that no matter the time or circumstances love was just a complicated mess of starts and stops, a dance without a leader, where the steps were all made up and the beat was always changing.

She considered the message from her parents as Pat continued her lament, a request or a summoning for dinner and her fathers tone making it plain that she would not be able to "skip it" this time. nope, she was going to have see her parents and they of course wanted her to bring Vels too. That would be a disaster.

Her mother kept asking about him and about if they had become a we yet, what did that even mean anymore she wondered as she picked up the pace and the song ended only to que up another female lead reminding her that if she wanted something she had to WORK... WORK... WORK...BITCH- yep.

" ahhh! Damn you Gustav!" She jumped off the treadmill after missing her footing and nearly breaking her neck due to her Sphinx cat jumping up to the book perch on the screen. She pulled out her headphones because honestly Brittany, she didn't need that kind of negativity in her life... Catching her breath she scooped up the cat "you're a real asshole sometimes you know" she kissed his weird little bald head and tossed him on the bed before hitting the alarm off and beginning to strip off a sweat drenched tank top on her way to the shower. Time to start the show.
