"Promises must not be broken so casually. Promises must be kept."

The girl who fell from the sky, cradled in the immense hand of a Golem and carrying with her a pair of impossibly advanced ARMs... and headed east to discover the truth behind a name. As it has always been, Avril Vent Fleur's existence is one defined by mysteries since Dean Stark and Rebecca Streisand found her, but now there is at least one mystery less: she is apparently 'Johnny Appleseed', the leader of the Veruni. Where one mystery is resolved others are born, however; torn now between a sense of obligation and the understanding that her lost memories make fulfilling such obligation unwise if not impossible, Avril continues onward in search of understanding fully who she was and what role now awaits her. Kindhearted and serene regardless of whatever she may face, Avril is nonetheless as pragmatic and painfully direct as the blade she bears, a factor continuously tempered by those with which she travels. However, her seeming role of lost Veruni ruler and prodigious talents makes her of extreme interest to certain powers that be... and her people, it seems, who would rather their leader return home. By any means necessary.

Background

A girl found in the hand of a Golem without her memory, who set out on a journey to discover who she was and find the person named 'Johnny Appleseed' with the people who found her.

As it turns out, both these quests have more or less come to the same end: she is Johnny Appleseed, the lost ruler of the Veruni.
And as long as someone like Volsung seeks to restore her to her throne, she, still lacking her memories, has opted to flee such responsibilities -- without understanding herself and her past, she feels, she will only become a pawn. Only the current freedom afforded to her permits her to better understand who she was and what she must now do.

Thus hiding from Veruni and others alike, she continues to search for clues to what she cannot remember...

...and has joined those currently transported to Lunar -- to Spira -- via Vinsfeld's machinations.

Where Avril has again been forced to contemplate the monster known as herself.

Powers and Abilities

  • Swordplay - Avril instinctively knows some basic forms for a school of swordplay unlike any currently known across Filgaia; where she learned it is uncertain (at this point the other salient question may be 'when'), but it most closely resembles the graceful ritualized forms of a dueling school rather than anything meant for the battlefield.
    • Absolute Zero - A strange and quite unique ARM that can alternate modes between a sword and a laser beam whip. It's definitely not at all a weapon from the current era. Due to synchronization, it appears that Avril is the only one who can use it to its full power.
  • Original Medium: Sea - Avril is in possession of the Original Sea Medium, an artificial Medium that can draw forth the power of the Sea Guardian Lucadia; unlike copies, this can theoretically be used by anyone. Through this Medium, Avril can borrow Lucadia's power to heal and support herself and allies.
    • Medium Affinity - Avril can sense the presence of Original Mediums for some reason. OOCly speaking, this is an excuse for RP!
  • Manifestation - Avril can at times draw upon a part of her true power. While this state is no longer entirely out of her control, it is quite taxing on her mentally and physically. Due to the nature of her gaining control over joining that state, it is possible there may be other complications in time.
  • Ice Medium - Received from the Guardians themselves. This stone tablet bears the symbol of Aru Solatu, the Ice Guardian. With it, the Ice Guardian can be summoned, and even being in possession of it strengthens Avril somewhat.
  • Magic - Learned during a private epiphany Avril had post the battle in the Pleasing Garden ruins. As Veruni magic does, it bears some vague resemblance to Ether. So far, she's able to use it to manifest and control icy shards. When calling upon her true power, she also presents the ability to manipulate cold light.
  • Ancient Technology Intuition - As the ancient queen of the Veruni, Avril has intuitive knowledge about certain pieces of ancient mysterious technology, particularly some of the most ancient and most mysterious. Particularly of ancestral Veruni make.
  • Spiritual Awareness - Avril's got an extremely good sense for things beyond normal sensory perception. Seraphs and Malevolence, that includes you. Once again, the reason why is a Mystery. She has, she suspects, a connection with the Ley on some level.
  • Deja Vu? - Avril has amnesia and can't remember anything except a certain name. But Avril has the very, very odd sense, despite this, that she's met certain people before and has been certain places before. Indeed, she even has the sense that there are people she needs to speak to, or places she needs to be. This, she suspects, is a part of her apparent connection with the Ley.
  • Mysteriousness - it's extremely high

1 How long have I walked, I wonder? The tracks are as a maze before me -- I know they have meaning but whatever that meaning may be is elusive. Yet, I’ll continue to walk until I meet my destination. Something That Can't Be Expressed
2 Where is my destination? Even the shape of it escapes me, but I know that I must reach it. There is someone I must meet. Should it take me to the ends of the world I will proceed on this path. A Little Light Reading
3 How much colder will it become? This path wears cold as ice. This path seems fit to consume me, erode who I am until nothing is left. But I cannot turn away. No matter how much colder it becomes. To Feel Such Regret
4 Long I’ve walked. My destination unknown. In defiance, I proceed across the ice and to the ends of the world. I have tracks I am following, as far as I must go. After all, I have someone I must meet.

I made a promise.
