Stage: Woodwife
Familiar: Orca, the Killer Whale - Alaska
Truth: "A drop in the ocean still raises an inch." 
Hypatia was born into prosperity. The beloved daughter of Agatha and Hugo Florence, Hypatia was born shortly before their first child, Agustus, disappeared. It was a tragic few years, mourning for their eldest while raising their youngest, but it lowered none of their expectations.

The couple were accomplished Woodwives, Hugo gaining the title of Baron as a young man, as far as Woodwives go, and the pair becoming accomplished doctors in their old age as well as maintaining their nobility. All the pressure of which rested on their daughter's young shoulders- now, more than ever, with science and industry taking a rise and slowly yet surely pushing the old way of things, and the Woodwives who practiced them, out of relevance.

Groomed from a young age, Hypatia was a prodigy, though a fragile one. Forever smaller, daintier than her peers, and more fragile as well- the family left their home in London when she was but a toddler, buying a second home in Brighton, a growing tourist town for the cure of salt water, as well as fresh, clean ocean air. There, Hypatia thrived.

Growing up, the family was split between the two homes- Hypatia was often required to make appearances in London, to maintain social standing and to foster prospects for her future, but a majority of the time she was allowed to remain in their apartments in Brighton and recover from her taxing visits to London, with either her mother or her father to attend her studies while the other parent tended business in their home in London.

Her life was a never-ending wash of social graces, etiquette and honing her skills in Woodwifery as well as a gentlewoman's habits. The only respite she had ever known was her stewardship in the Heart, short lived as it was. Rather than travelling to make her own fortune, Hypatia's parents insisted she return home and resume her duties as a daughter first, and woodwife second, though she was allowed to assist when her parents tentatively took patients in Brighton.

Though she hates the disgusting waters around London, it is rare to ever find her far from the water in either city, spending all the time she can near the ocean or river with her familiar.

I can only imagine a tea party with Rob, Hypatia and Brunehault when they where younger. :giggle:
Flawless etiquette it would have been. But then, I highly doubt Rob and Brune’s respective fathers would have approved of noble Woodwives...
congrats, she’s a real beauty. Have fun!

Aha, well, that would certainly make current opinions all the more hurtful, poor kids!

I'm glad you like her, though, I look forward to throwing her out into the group <3 <3
