Anabelle

Introduction
There was once a young girl who grew up surrounded by her loving mother and grandparents. She was a good girl, the apple of their eyes, and a joy to them every day. She was that chipper, girl-next-door that you can't help but like. Or hate. She enjoyed learning to garden and cook from her mother and grandmother, and even how to brew things from her grandfather. Until a possessive boyfriend came into the picture, life was idyllic.


After breaking up with the boyfriend, it was decided a change was needed, and after finding information on a city in California, this country girl decided to pack up and move. Kissing her family goodbye and promising to keep in touch, a bus ticket was bought and away she went.


Arriving new to Prospect, not only was an apartment found, but a job and a fast friend in Joe. The two combined resources and opened their own dive, Joe's Pizza and Beer. The place seems to be a success overall. For a while, it was run by the two, then later, by just Joe when Anabelle had to return home for some family business. Upon her return, it would seem that Joe's been missing, leaving her to handle the place by herself.

"First family to meet here in Prospect. A bit rough was he, but I didn't mind. Not at all. Not only were we sharing a place, but it seems we ended up going into business together. Enjoying working and serving customers. The brews are a success. I just wish I knew where he was."

🌱 Keris

"I really need to learn to not talk aloud when I critique things. At least he didn't hold it against me too much. I've seen him on tv, so know he's keeping busy."

🌱 Thaddeus

"I'm sorry I was so pushy in getting you to go to the ER, but surely, with an allergy like what we have, you understand? Never thought I'd be the sort to save a life! I hope you remain well, and keep away from bees in the future!"

🌼 Viv

"Oh my goodness. I swear, I think my foot lived in my mouth. And my cheeks remained quite red! At least she understands my passion with brewing. I'm surprised she accepted the job offer! She... oh wait.. did I...!!!!!! ... and now she too, is gone. Sigh."

🌱 William

"He likes my brews and cooking. Nice guy. BIG. "

Anabelle learned her stuff from a friend's grandmother back home who recently passed away. She took to it with a certain skill and still enjoys whipping up new recipes.
(For fun ideas of what might be found in Anabelle's crazy lab, take a look at these awesome pics!!)

🍲 Brewer and Cook at Joe's Pizza and Beer

Anabelle loves to cook and come up with new ideas to brew. Really, the girl sometimes seems to prefer the kitchen to parties or hanging out with large crowds.

🍁 Red Lodge, Montana

Small town just off the northeast entry into Yellowstone is where Anabelle is from.

Kinain

Born within a family with strong Boggan bloodlines as seen in her mother and grandparents, while she didn't become a full Changeling herself, she still seems to carry the Boggan traits and personality to some degree.

Ideas

On Cooking:
Julia Child

"The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude."

Craig Claiborne

"Cooking is at once child's play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love."

Anthony Bourdain

"Vegetarians, and their Hezbollah-like splinter-faction, the vegans, are a persistent irritant to any chef worth a damn.

To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.

Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. The body, these waterheads imagine, is a temple that should not be polluted by animal protein. It's healthier, they insist, though every vegetarian waiter I've worked with is brought down by any rumor of a cold.

Oh, I'll accommodate them, I'll rummage around for something to feed them, for a 'vegetarian plate', if called on to do so. Fourteen dollars for a few slices of grilled eggplant and zucchini suits my food cost fine."


On Brewing:
Anonymous

"Give a man a beer, he'll drink for the day. Teach a man to brew, he'll be drunk the rest of his life."

Friar Tuck in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves

"This is grain, which any fool can eat, but for which the Lord intended a more divine means of consumption... Beer!"


On Alchemy:
Jean Dubuis

"Alchemy is the art of manipulating life, and consciousness in matter, to help it evolve, or to solve problems of inner disharmonies."

Albert Poisson

Scholasticism with its subtle argumentation,
Theology with its ambiguous phraseology,
Astrology, so vast and so complex,
are all children's games when compared with alchemy.


On Boggan Girls:

I love boggan girls, so should you
Think you won't fit? Brother, you do!
Soft and warm as a fresh-baked bread
those sweet little girls, Almost to nice to eat!

And, oh, they're fine pillows if you don't mind the snoring,
but the best part of having a boggan girl...
Is the breakfast she makes in the morning!

Go a round or four if you fancy some fun,
Try to tire one out, it can't be done!
But once you get up, she'll put it back in!
Don't get the idea that her bed is boring...

But the best part of having a boggan girl..
Is the breakfast she makes in the morning!

Girls come in every size and flavor
and every man's got a taste he favors
Some men like the tits and some like the legs!
But I like the boggan girl's rye toast and eggs!

Oh humans are fine and satyrs worth exploring!
But wait 'till you've had a boggan girl
and the breakfast she makes in the morning!

I've head that their size is unnerving indeed,
but they come to your waist, how taller d'you need?
Oh, most pass them by but a few realize!
That everything on 'em is sweet and bite-sized!

There's plenty who'll take all that muffing your scoring!
Because the best part of having a boggan girl
Is the breakfast she makes in the morning!

When the picking are slim, and the crowd disapproving,
A clever bard calls it a night and gets moving...
Time to find a boggan-girl and hope he can schtup her,
since hasn't had lunch and he can't pay for supper...

Some call it a living, and some call it whoring!
But I'd starve without those boggan girls!
And the breakfast they make in the morning!

Retainer

Henry


Satyr Kinain. College drop-out turned manager at Joe's Pizza and Beer. Seems to have hit it off well with the customers that come in, talking sports and all with the guys, and flirting with the women. For all the fun and games, he has a serious side as well, handling any problems that come up when Anabelle isn't around.

Companion

Bobbie


An experiment gone wrong? Something left too long in the fridge? Slime? Jello? It's hard to say just where this companion came from, but one thing's for certain: it's cute, pink, and follows Anabelle around all the time. It's size changes from time to time as does it's mood. Of course, being slightly transparent also means that after it eats, you are presented with the image of floating foodstuff in it's body till it's absorbed.
