Kenna

The satyr they call Liazaelyn
You must keep her in close quarantine
Or she sneaks to the slums
And promptly becomes
Disorderly, drunk, and obscene.

Stereotypes
The Others
Werewolf "They have their own battles to fight, though sometimes we seem to be allies. I've only worked with them a few times before, but it seems I may do so more now. Or at least some like them."
Vampire "Usually quite banal creatures, or so I have been told. I've met a few, and tend to prefer to keep my distance."
Mage "It takes all kinds to make the world go round and in everyone there are those that are good or bad."
Wraith "I knew a few people who believed in ghosts. I know they raked in some good money faking bumps and rattles of chains for grieving family and friends wanting to ask questions. To truly know one of these, is to know a certain sadness that they can't go on and stay and fight their own battles."
Mortal "Always fun to play with, to inspire, to sometimes break. Oh, did I say the last out loud? Ignore that."

Contacts



Changelings

Samuel "Four invitations first promised, all now fulfilled. Yes, sir. May I have another, please? You keep me on my hooves, always filled with anticipation of what will come next. And now we have forever to do so, husband. I only wish your House did not keep you so busy, for I truly miss you more than I can express."
Keris "Daredevil is he who thinks I am some spy? Well, if that is the game he wishes to play, I won't complain! We might argue and fuss, but no one else can I call a truer friend."
Uriel "A fine craftsman with such passion found in every thing he creates. A passion to rival my own in many ways. I hope that this time around, his heart will not be broken again."
Grace "Sained. And how you have bloomed into such a beautiful satyr. Sisters forever, always, whether remembered or no."
Thaddeus "Grace's brother and yet another satyr? It explains so much! At least I can't complain about the fun had while giving lessons. Watch out world, is all I can say, now that you are Sained."
Jinxy "My Jester extraordinaire, and the one who will see that I do not forget to smile and have fun. Truly, a blessing to have around!"
Locke "A redcap of hungers that I can understand. Here's to being allies. Good luck running things upon the peak."
Rodrigo "You have always amused me. You've showed me around town and kept me entertained when I first arrived. I owe you so much, my dear friend. The VW Bus is PERFECT for me! I don't think I've ever squeed so much before in my life! I hope you have found happiness with the new girl."
Slaine "A kith-sister who has had her own fair share of heartache. I am glad of her friendship, and to know she's found happiness again."
Ambrosine "A seer who leaves me confused, and yet hoping to discover the meaning of her visions."
Carolyn "A very late bloomer, but it explains so much. I'm looking forwards to seeing how she adjusts to the changes."
Caelina "I trust you with the heart of a dear friend. Sorry again about our first meeting. Hopefully, you understand."
Sterling "Healer. I look forwards to getting to know this fellow Housemate further, and see how our friendship grows, especially now that he has taken up in my court. "
Donnie "I do so enjoy a man who cooks! Such a cutie. And now the tavern has a manager!"




Confederates

Horatio "Ex-Confed. Gaffer. Most of the time I don't understand a word you say, but I see the work you do, and can't help but be impressed. Over time, I've gotten to know you better, and glad to call you a good friend. I worry about you these days..."
Ferdinand "An enigma of sorts, one I have begun to puzzle out as the stars have aligned. I count him as a mentor and close friend, though sometimes he frustrates me. And confuses me. Then frustrates me again. And these days, I am not sure where we stand."
Cristobal "I really don't know much about him beyond the fact that he is the Mage. This will have to change, and soon."
Cross "It is nice to find someone to be able to speak Gaelic with. Here's to a little piece of Eire here in Prospect. I've seen what you can do, and for an old man, you got the moves. I'm glad I can call you friend, even if I don't get the chance to talk to you as much as I'd like."
Leila "I have questions that perhaps eventually can be answered by you. I'm glad you make him happy. He could use happiness, the old man. "




Others

Velok "A new friend who has the potential to become more. I think I will enjoy getting to know him."
Connel "An Irish laddie after me own heart."
Chambers "A giant man of nature that makes me laugh. Here's to roughing it some time. I apologize for confusing you and opening your eyes to things unknown before."

Emma "Was once Uriel's and a dear friend. I am sorry to see that things did not work out, and sadder still to see her leave."
Jackson "A shy Knight with a gifted hand in art. Surely he should not raise it in violence. He spends even more time away now than I do."
Aleksander "I will have my dream of owning a piece of your work... however I can manage to get it. If you return to Prospect."
Jacob "You have my thanks for the help given with a certain situation. Disappeared he did."
Chione "Never really got the chance to know you beyond a brief time with the Confederates. Hope things are well."
Edward "A dragon? I couldn't believe this till I finally saw it. Beautiful in every form is he. Quite the story-teller as well. And now he's gone away. I will remember him fondly every time I use what he taught me."
Eoghan "Quite the interesting one, so ready to offer your services. And as quickly as you came around, you seemed to have left again."
Carson "A playboy met one night out clubbing that proved himself able to keep up with me. I think I may still have his number. Or maybe not."
Jotun "A past coworker at the Sideshow. In time, I'd hoped to speak to him further."

RP Hooks



General Hooks:

  • Student
Kenna is a transfer student at the local university in Music and Dance.
  • Entertainment
Kenna can be found playing gigs around town. If you have a place in need of music or dance, give her a call. She is listed in paper, internet and by word of mouth. She's even known for her more risque Burlesque shows, though tastefully done.
  • Parties
When not working, Kenna can be found making the rounds of the local parties having fun.
Kenna hung around here a lot, even working gigs - both in music, singing, and the occasionally burlesque show. When the club changed owners, she seemed to have stopped working there, though can be found occasionally hanging out around it.
Located off Lincoln Blvd. and Third Ave., Robyn's started as a very small one-room studio over forty years ago, but has grown to become the premier dance, voice and music school in Prospect. Begun by the husband and wife team of Lucy (dance) and George (voice/music) Robyn with a handful of students each, it has grown now to include many dedicated faculty members, and several hundred students who have won many awards and competitions, and gone on to wonderful careers in music and dance. Kenna teaches classes there in all three areas several times a week.
Located off Lincoln Blvd. and Third Ave. not far from Robyn's, is a small studio that has served the Prospect area for almost thirty years. Recently put up for sale and bought by Kenna, it serves as a place for local talent to not only record their first demos, but for others to continue their recording throughout their entertainment years. Kenna can be found here many days, still learning the ropes and meeting clients.
Located at Lincoln Blvd. and Fifth Ave, this steampunk inspired tavern has become a place where Kenna can often be found. AT times, one might be able to hear her play music or sing there as well when she's not helping out the part-time manager.




Fae Hooks:

  • Baroness
After rising to the rank of Knight through a quest given to her by Count Leras and Countess Ionae, Kenna set to work within the County and her own persona fiefdom. Recently, the satyr was called out of the city by her House in a quest that kept her away for over a month. Upon her return, it has been made known she was given the title of Baroness through her hard work for her House.
  • House Fiona
Kenna serves House Fiona, and has done so here in Prospect.
Kenna served as Troubadour within the Court of Count Leras, providing entertainment to any and all. These days, she busies herself with her own barony.
Granted this Barony by the previous Count and Countess, it centers upon Robyn's School of Music and Dance. Seeking to continue to inspire those Dreams that have been planted here, she also looks to draw in new Dreamers through aiding underprivileged kids gain scholarships to the school to foster their dreams as well. It has been extended to Capricorn Studios where the entrance to her freehold is located. There are a few rumors that come with laughs, that say some have shortened the name to the Barony of the Triple D's.
Kenna is Steward of this small barony for the Duke. She can be found there often checking in at the Steeds Crossing Stables, or sparring with others in weapons training under Sir Elessar, Knight Commander.
  • Kingdom of Pacifica, Barony of the Seven Axes.
Kenna is originally from a very small town in Washington state on the coast. Were you? Here she was Squire to Sir Maelyn ap Fiona who died in May of 2012 during a battle there that took place involving House Balor.




Other Hooks:

Kenna is a member of this odd collection of people. Quite the odd collection of people. Cultist? Who knows!

Quotes and Soundtrack
  • In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art. ― Rumi


I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
- Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII


  • All throughout history, from Reuben to Robbins, redheads have been recognized as a rare breed. Blondes may have more fun, brunettes may be brainier, but when it comes down to raw energy, creativity, and personality ... you just can't beat a redhead well, you can, but beware ... she'll probably beat you back!" - Redheads Unlimited ??
  • "Nobody who has known a redhead can say that redheads are tame. Even shy redheads have a burning spark of adventure inside them. Opinionated, hotheaded, logical, loyal, friendly, reserved, whatever the redheads' personality, you can bet they'll have SCADS of it!" -Review of The Redhead Encyclopedia
  • There once was a girl with a strawberry curl / right in the middle of her forehead, / And when she was good she was very, very good/ But when she was bad she was horrid. - A play off a poem by Longfellow
  • I am strong. I am invincible. I am redhead. -T-shirt
  • Gentlemen may prefer blondes, but it takes a real man to handle a redhead. - Someone
  • "People who haven't red hair don't know what trouble is." - Anne to Marilla in Anne of Green Gables
  • "See, never do a Google search for redheads with Safe Search off. You'll be convinced afterwards that the redheads natural state is both allergic to clothes and hairless from the neck down." - A friend.

  • Fame Fpdot.pngFpdot.png : Kenna McKenzie Ravenscroft is a name that might be known within the local entertainment circles of Prospect. Not only was the redhead a performer at The Sideshow before it's change of hands, entertaining crowds there in simple cabaret-style singing, to late night burlesque, but she is also becoming a well known teacher at Robyn's School of Music and Dance, leading classes in various styles of dance, music and singing. Lately, it has come to be known that the young woman has bought the small recording studio, Capricorn Studios, where she will continue to be the stepping stone that local talent need in seeking the bright lights outside of Prospect.
  • Influence Fpdot.pngFpdot.png : Kenna has certain influence within the circles of Entertainment. It's grown over time due to her recording studio and association with Robyn's School.
  • Voice of a Songbird: Kenna's got a beautiful voice and can often be found singing. From parks to bars, church to shower. There's just something in her voice that inspires passion without the use of a musical instrument. She has perfect pitch and can sing acappella without missing a single note or going off-key. Even when only speaking, her voice has a seductive quality that can attract people to her.
  • Sex Appeal: Kenna has the looks, but there's something more to her. Maybe it's the sway of her hips or the pout of her lips that gives her a natural sexiness and sensuality that attracts people. Perhaps it's her pheromones. Whatever it is, it gains her attention.

Companion

Zilli


This Chimerical Companion is often found nearby or around wherever Kenna is. She is hard to spy in the best of times, the winged feline disappearing in shadows due to her Dreamform. Some have heard her speak from time to time when she deems a person worthy enough for conversation.

VW Bus

Kenna-vwbus.jpg


After finding the old rundown bus being sold by an old man who needed the cash to pay bills, Kenna bought it without hesitation and brought it to the one person she believed could help her with it: Rodrigo. Ideas passed back and for, and months later, the old classic has been restored with a few modifications and changes that leave it not quite stock. It's perfect for Kenna when she wants to take a roadtrip with someone or alone, and has plenty of room in the back when she's going to gigs and needs to bring her instruments.
