Neko (don't know what else to call them)
A rather shy but pleasant girl. She likes small and smooth or flush things like cupcakes or puppies, actually having a familiar of one of those things. She grew up as alone as she was cast out of her clan because of her heterochromia, which is extraordinarily rare and considered a curse. She wandered aimlessly for several days, hoping to find some source of food or water, until she came across a cottage with a well. In her desperation, she ran to the well and practically dove in, drinking all that she could. Unbeknownst to her before hand, the cottage belonged to a witch, wicked but fair. The watch took Zophya from the well and placed a curse upon her, one that made it so that if she ever becomes so much as halfway submerged in water, she will turn into a terrifying water based monster for the rest of her days. Zophya pleaded with the witch and explained her story, and the witch, who was wicked but fair, decided to ease up on her punishment, saying the transformation will only last until the next sunrise or sunset. The witch then sent Zophya out with a spell and placed her in a village with people who will care for her, as the witch was not devoid of reason or compassion. At the village, Zophya was picked up by a human couple that already had three children, two of whom younger than Zophya, the other being older. She then lived with them for several years, acting as a bit of an upper-middle child of the family. Over the years she dabbled more and more into magic in attempts to break her curse, but it was very strong, and had no sense of success. She did, however, learn to summon her familiar, Flarkeon the Boundless, she just calls him Lark. He takes the form of a small black dog who tends to hang around her shoulders. He cannot speak but he can understand people and can write (with much difficulty) if he needs to and Zophya is not around.
