Ambelena Castillo by Vivyi Ambelena Castillo by Vivyi
I think this is the final version of Ambelena. c: Her old name was Amulya Co'bello and this is my first drawing of her: Amulya Co'Bello by Vivyi Her original design / adoptable can be found here:


 Ambelena Castillo by Vivyi

 I wanted to stay slightly more true to the original, though I also changed her hair color yet again, and her ethnicity as well as her overall concept. Instead of going for a "inventor" concept, I went for more of an steampunk-inspired seamstress by making some slight changes with her clothing. Ambelena herself is just that: a seamstress, but one that does clothing for inventors in rich, Heneurockian fashion. But she secretly enjoys the rough and tough life of inventing, and longs to become an inventor herself, and is best friends with Marcilyn Locket before the prequel begins. They may regain their friendship later on in the sequel, once Ambelena gets back in touch with her.

On a side note: Ambelena was also Marcilyn's first date, although their relationship didn't last very long because of Marcilyn's temptations to push her boundaries. Ambelena is Aromantic/Asexual, but she ended up getting into a date with Marcilyn because she wanted to see if it were possible that she was more interested in females than males (as she had previously gone out with a boy, and decided she wasn't interested) and because she was only truly interested in cuddling, they both felt endlessly frustrated, and so Marcilyn softly dumped her, coming to a deep understanding that Ambelena was not actually interested in her that way. Regardless, they became good friends afterwards, and Ambelena helped her pull out of many, many bad situations.

I've been feeling like I needed more characters of different cultures, so Ambelena here is of Chinese descent, with a slight bit of Thai as well. Her parents moved from Starrech to Heneurock before she was born, and they stayed because they thought she would be safer in Heneurock than Starrech because of the recent chaos with untrained witches. Ambelena herself is not a witch, and doesn't have any magical abilities, although her parents have a slight magical ability, and use their magic to help them produce clothing faster. Ambelena herself, works as their assistant, but she is very happy with her job. Her life is very smooth, but she tends to want to get herself involved in unfortunate predicaments of her  friends. Regardless, she has yet to do so, and continues to live her life peacefully and in good comfort. That doesn't mean that she doesn't worry about her friends a lot, and she is always willing to lend a hand in anyway possible.

The one person she does worry about the most, is Marcilyn Locket. Ambelena knows her by Marcilyn's Starrechian name "Arinya Jee" because that's all her father calls her. After Marcilyn disappeared for a very long time in her life, Ambelena became increasingly worried. Whether or not she  will stumble upon Marcilyn later in the sequel, leaves little to be said, but if she were to find out what happened to her - she would truly be saddened, because of what happens to her after the prequel, and she might find herself in the biggest misfortune of her entire life...

Thank you <3 She is a very caring person. She truly cares about her friends, and she wants to help them in anyway possible :D Her personality combats many of the beliefs that people might believe about Aromantics - that they are cold individuals, who treat others poorly (which is not true at all!)

Thank yooou <33 Yeah I can't seem to figure out her design LOL :XD: I'm not used to using adoptables at all! I'm trying to stay true to the original, while still maintaining the character as a whole!

lol I bet it's hard. That's why adopts are hard to sell, because certain people look for certain adopt, and it's not easy to find an adopt that fits your idea perfectly :D

Haha, well so far I've had no trouble in terms of finding designs :XD: Ambelena's design was a gift for me, and I decided I would make use of her design to invent her character... it seems I still must add my own twist to it! :XD: Typically I'm not someone who uses adopts much, but I'll buy from a friend if I have the points and really like the design, such as my other adoptable by Arasteia. (Simone Richards) who is actually a legit character I invented, but had no design for, and had trouble coming up with a concept with.

Thank yooou <33 Haha, yep... I think that's the best part! They're both understanding people, and very alike each other...  at least before Marcilyn's life went downhill. But she's very supportive of Marcilyn, and would try her best to help her - even in the oddest of circumstances. c: And ohhh man, I can just imagine that she makes all of her clothes for Marcilyn for free, once she finds out Marcilyn's situation with the antagonist. She hadn't gotten a new outfit in ages, and since she hadn't grown since she was 15, she was still stuck wearing the same clothes when she was 19, except that it was all torn up and ragged. (I feel so bad for her omg :XD: )

I like the idea of having slight magical abilities that help you do your job faster! And I like her hair!

Haha thank you! c: Hehehe, me too! I'm certain a lot of witches in the Netheron Chronicles are just everyday workers and happen to have magical abilities that make their job slightly easier on them... lmao :giggle:

There's some very, very gifted witches in Netheron, such as Esmeralda and Margarette. My original intent was to stick with only describing the ones who are gifted, but then I thought about the everyday witch and was like: with so many witches in Starrech, why would all of them be super powerful? Wouldn't that completely destroy the country? So then I decided that some of the witches needed to simply be everyday people :XD: Such as the parents of Ambelena c: What's interesting is that Marcilyn and Vevenon know how to repel against a witch's mind-control ability, using their own minds. It's an "ancient" Starrechian tradition that came about in the early 1700s, and it's continued to spread throughout regions of even Heneurock. c: Estelle herself is a witch too, but only with magical resistance and no ability to tap into any powers. She can repel spells easily, and she can't be affected by them unless she wills it to be.  :XD:

That's kind of true I mean if everyone with the genes was super gifted then why should they not be superior, having a collection of average ones too with slight but not overly huge advantages to non Witchesmakes them special but not in an unbelievable manner. And having the odd few who are is more realistic. Well being magically resistant has it's pros!
