☄ First Impressions (Sansa Stark; Game of Thrones)

♚ VISUAL: Sansa is a tall young woman (standing at about 5'9"). She has long auburn hair with copper highlights, bright blue eyes that she shares with her mother's side of the family (the Tullys) and a fair complexion. When she is wearing her oftentimes ornate dresses, it is easy to assume she is without many blemishes or scars. However, thanks to King Joffrey and his Kingsguard, there are scars on her back, the backs of her legs, her cheek and even her lip. Most of said scars were produced by a knight using his sword in various ways to knock her down.

Yet she also has marks from almost being raped by a mob of starving men and Ramsay Bolton too (for The Far Shore), but they (in the case of the scars Ramsay left) are in places she cannot see.
♚ FASHION: Since returning to her roots, Sansa has adopted the heavier, darker clothing of the North. Her bright colored dresses with delicate stitching are no more. She dons black or grey dresses with long sleeves and often wears fur on top of them.

She might opt for something lighter - and I will keep track of what she is wearing with each post. For Sansa, her dress often depicts her moods without her saying a word.
♚ DEMEANOUR: Her etiquette is impeccable; she holds herself with pride and dignity. But because of all she has witnessed/endured, she has hardened herself to be warier of everyone - even herself. She does not trust anyone fully and she has accepted that no one can protect her but herself. Thus, when she speaks to others, she might seem curt or cold, however that is her way of analyzing them.
♚ AURAL: Her voice is generally low and soft. When she raises it or uses it to give orders, there is a power behind it; a strength that she does not easily see in herself.
♚ OLFACTORY: Sansa loves lavender and other lighter scents. She uses them in her bath water and dabs her wrists and her neck with them once she is dressed. I assume, for a lady of her world/time period, she smells quite nice.


♚ BACKTAGGING: Always and forever unless actions have made an older thread obsolete.
♚ THREAD-HOPPING: Generally speaking, I have no problem with it, but if it gets too excessive, I might say something. If you're not sure, feel free to ask me.
♚ FOURTHWALLING: The idea will startle her and likely distance her from your character, but I'm not against it.
♚ OFFENSIVE SUBJECTS: Sansa has been raped, tortured and tormented. She has lost most of her family to murderous fiends and she has contemplated suicide more than once (to the surprise of no one). If you would like for me to avoid certain subjects with your character(s), please let me know below. I completely understand; the Game of Thrones canon is messed up.

☄ IC

♚ HUGGING: If she is well-acquainted with your character, it might be allowed. Otherwise expect her to struggle and act/sound offended. A lady should never be touched without her permission! It doesn't help matters that she has been taken advantage of too many times to count.
♚ KISSING: Same as hugging. In certain circumstances, she might enjoy it, but it will take a lot of time and CR for her to get to that point.
♚ FLIRTING: She will either return as good as she is given or treat your character coldly to bring such behavior to an end. She is a lady who knows her mind and she is tired of others trying to use her as a pawn.
♚ FIGHTING: She is not physically strong, but she is cunning. There might be a knife hidden in her skirts - or some other sharp object. In fact, there probably is and she will wait for the right moment to stab.
♚ INJURING: It can happen and probably will, but I do want to limit it so she isn't incredibly psychologically damaged by it. She has had enough of that.
♚ KILLING: We can discuss it if the plot is juicy enoughit becomes a natural option.
♚ TELEPATHY/MIND-READING: Only if you want her to panic and give your character a wide, wide berth.

♚ WARNINGS: See Offensive Subjects. I will likely reference the past frequently, but I can be as vague as you need me to be.
