She lived a particularly calm life, and often stirred up trouble by stealing from others who happened to leave shiny trinkets or various bobbles lying amongst the forested path she regularly inhabited. Eventually she began seeking solace with other tricksters and collectors amongst the woods, her most dangerous "companion" being Ikkit, the forest Wanderer. Since she was stubborn she was quick to take his challenges, but that didn't mean she always won at them.As a spirit, Mirabella lives a life both far too similar and far too different from her original. She has no weight on her shoulders, except one self assigned purpose of her supposed gift. She is still stubborn, but she's grown more patient over the years. She takes solace in the tree tops with her collection of trinkets from the varying years, looking on over her overgrown path that rarely sees humans anymore. She's to thank for that.Despite her generally quiet life, she is a somber sort. She perceives thinking as unneeded, for her purpose lies in her transformation itself. She could be called a husk, but that term lacks enough detail to fully describe her. A follower perhaps fits better. An extension in the ever growing web that is Ikkit and his forests. She is one of the various strings keeping it together and keeping people away with her ever watchful eyes. BoundaryThe trail Mirabella haunts hasn't seen many visitors in a long time, at least of the human sort. Deer, rodents, bugs and various birds are common in the area, but due to the tall grasses and shading leaves people don't often go down the trek. Flowers and fungi are all scattered across the ground, giving it a dense yet beautiful look even as fungus climbs up rotten logs and healthy trees. The boundary in particular stretches a good few miles of the trail, fading where the thicket begins becoming cared for just over 3 miles ahead and behind her main haunt and halting abruptly at 4 1/2 miles each way.Mirabella's haunt in particular is a strong old tree, an old den carved out into it that has inhabited racoons, squirrels, owls, and many more critters. Some of her more prized little items are kept there, meanwhile the rest are often spread out amongst the trail like some sort of shrike's coat rack. She rarely leaves the tree branches of her boundary, going as far as to levitate off the ground so her paws dare not touch it. If they do, she's often seen hopping like some bird.,Elemental and EnchantmentMirabella has the ability to summon fog from her paws and bluebells. She often uses it to surround her haunt in a thick mist, effectively shrouding her from curious eyes. If she's following something, or someone, she often uses it to shroud her and the other as well like some predator.Her enchantment manifests as nine watchful eyes floating around her. They watch on curiously in her life, and their presence alone is unnerving to many. The effect they offer brings forgetfulness to the afflicted, causing them to lose time perception and feel as though mere seconds have passed in her presence when they've been there for hours, maybe even days. Many have said their surroundings grew warped, the tree branches turning to fingers and the shadows seeming to smile. All the while Mirabella treats them in kind they say, her words soft as their world and time slowly slips away with every growing second those eyes stare at them.It's unknown if Mirabella herself is affected by the enchantment. It's unlikely, but her behavior sometimes does lean towards such things.RelationshipsIkkit, Creator - Back in the day Mirabella used to bring Ikkit trinkets for his collections. She didn't know what became of them, but she was one of the few in her area that would outright approach Ikkit and offer up small offerings if you will. They weren't friends by any means, but they were friendly with one another. Mirabella, thanks to her stubborn attitude and willingness to be around the Wanderer, was often subject to some of Ikkit's games and tricks. Nowadays, Mirabella still visits the Wanderer when she can, or at least where she used to see him. She still leaves small trinkets for him, but they don't often talk when they're together, or at least she doesn't. She's content with their status, Creator and Created, and simply carries on her work and collecting as she always had.Permissions and Notes!Art is fine, but please ask when it comes to writing! And be sure to tag me!She's roughly the size of a large magpie, body wise, but her tail stretches over a few feet.Don't worry about making her markings and such match entirely, just do your best. And as a design note, the entirety of the underneath of her tail is the same base color as her body!She's open as a tf/story creator and shares a very similar sentiment to creating things like Ikkit. She'll make just about anything into an Esk, especially if she things the thing can be helpful to the forests, but if you wish to keep a stable relationship with her after, that will need to be discussed more in depth with me.
