    Name: Rosetta Ryley
    Age: 21
    Birthday: October 21
    Gender: Female
    Species: Human
    Category: Student
    Class: College
    Grade: 2nd Year/Sophomore
    Career: Engineering
    Appearance Description:
    [Saber from Fate/Zero. Art by かがちさく]​

    Rosetta is a bit shorter than her sister, being 5'4" although she shares her slender-athletic build. She also has no scars on her body, unlike her older sister who has dozens. She keeps her hair at shoulder length, with bangs on the front. She normally just lets her hair flow free.

    Her eyes are blue with a soft touch of grey, and she wears glasses due to a slight vision problem.

    Personality Description: Rosetta is chattier than her older sister and too easily controlled by her emotions. She is smart and has a good grasp of athletic activities, and its no secret that she works out. She is tough and can easily hold her ground with verbal or physical conflict although she slightly prefers nonviolent approaches.

    Her sense of humor often borders what is okay and what dooms her to hell, but she would never feel guilty about it. After all, if its harmless, its no problem. This principle is why she hates people who try to police fun when no one was getting physically hurt. But that's not to say that she condones bullying. She knows where to draw the line.

    Knowing she is capable of handling dangerous situations, Rosetta often thinks of herself as a defender to her friends, especially those who can't protect themselves.

    Unlike her sister however, she has a hard time working with anyone she dislikes, but she will bite her tongue if it means it'll be over quicker. But if she simply can't help it, she often turns to snarky remarks and sarcasm to let off steam. If the person on the receiving end reciprocated, Rosetta would usually start to get attached to them as frenemies. Because in a weird way, it leads to understanding each other. Or at least, it raises her tolerance for them

    Species Abilities:None

    Powers:
    Psychic -- Rosetta possesses some psychic powers from telepathy to moving things with her mind.
    • Telekinesis -- Rosetta can move things with her mind, up to 50kg, however the heavier something is, the more she needs to focus, and because she is relatively new to using this power, she gets headaches very easily every time she moves anything more than 10kg, and prolonged use continues to add to the strain. Overuse on heavy objects may also cause her to pass out.
    • Synchronize -- When with someone she is very close to, sometimes she unknowingly links to their mind, allowing her be "In-synch" with them. This helps in avoiding oncoming danger by being aware or at least having a premonition of what danger the other person senses. The best way to describe this is by thinking of it as her mind setting itself to the same mental wavelength of the person she had linked to. However this only works with people she is very close to, like a best friend, her sister, or anyone she personally knows very well or already has the same way of thinking as her since this makes the synchronizing easier.
    Premonitions -- This lies more on the spiritual side. The gut feelings, intuition, and sixth senses people often experience and general luck.
    • Omens -- She simply has these 'feelings' that something will go good or bad, however she is more in tune with the bad. The greater the tragedy that will befall upon her or someone she is closely attached to, the worse she feels. The worst of it makes her physically sick, as if it was the last resort of whatever guardian angel she has to stop her from advancing. This doesn't always happen when danger is present however, but when it does, something really bad is sure to happen. Often it is preventable, but its tough to do so if you don't know what's coming.
    • Lady Luck's Grace -- For whatever reason, Rosetta has always had incredible luck. Not for gambling or chance or even with handsome guys she trips over, but when danger is near, the cosmos seems to give her a pass. Like if she steps on a trap, it rarely ever triggers on her, or if it does, the damage is minimal. But this only works if she is unaware. If she ever steps on a landmine she knows is armed, she will suffer. But if its hidden very well and she just so happens to step on it, it simply doesn't trigger. Sometimes however, she will have that tiny nudge to barely escape danger and injury, or mitigate most of the damage. An example would be if she gets shot and the bullet magically avoids doing a significant amount of damage, or it hits something in her pockets. However, this is actually her own doing. Subconsciously, she mixes her premonitions and her telekinesis to alter her 'luck' without even knowing it. This however requires that she isn't too focused on something, like lifting up 50kgs with her mind.

    Biography: Born 6 years after her sister and on the same day, Rosetta was quickly spoiled by affection, most of it coming from Aliasse since she's the person that could spend so much time with her. With their family line having hunted monsters and demons for generations, their parents were naturally worried about their children's well-being. As soon as Aliasse was 10, she had started her training. Rosetta watched her and cheered her on.

    Unknown to either of them and possibly even to their parents, Rosetta's gift had already been awakened. Sometimes she simply felt very uneasy, usually when they would go out and sometimes whenever Aliasse was training. And whenever she had those kinds of feelings, bad things would happen. Luckily, she would find ways to stop those situations whether by luck or when her mother notices her acting strangely, like when the family was out driving one night and she just couldn't stop fidgeting. She was so uneasy that she whined about nothing. They stopped in front of an intersection, with her father asking what was wrong. He was annoyed, but that look soon disappeared when a speeding car crashed a few meters from them. If they had gone on like they were, they would have been hit.

    Another time when this happened was when they were out ice skating in the winter on a frozen lake. Normally she loved ice skating, but when she felt that looming dread when looking at the ice, she just couldn't bring herself to be near it. Shortly after, an earthquake had hit and the ice cracked, sending a lot of the skaters present into the icy drink. Their parents went to help as many people as they could while she stayed with her sister.

    She had gained a reputation within family and friends, and when she started training, people would usually check and see if she was feeling any sort of unease before doing anything extreme. Though because sometimes bad things happened even with her senses, eventually the importance of gift was never fully realized.

    The two sisters made a pretty good team. Aliasse was pretty good with fighting, and she was always taking the lead, while Rosetta was the one who always made sure both of them got out safely. They worked great together, almost like they had an esp link. In fact, the two of them would often play with the idea. To say they were close was like saying ice is cold.

    So when Aliasse disappeared, Rosetta was a wreck. Not even her parents could make her feel better. At first she was sure that her sister was still alive, and so she sought to look for clues, only to find dead ends after dead ends. Being a hunter was shoved aside, a move that her parents didn't appreciate, but still allowed. Things had been quiet in their area, and they wanted to know what happened to their eldest as well, but they couldn't do anything as they were tied up with their own responsibilities.

    For months, Rosetta kept following whatever tip reached her ears, even forcing information out of her fellow hunters who kept things from her. This escalated to her suspecting a rival bloodline's son, who had an infatuation with her sister years before. But every time she would approach, that sense of dread weighed her down and she bailed out. Numerous times. Once almost getting caught.

    During this time, she tried her hand at mysticism, something that wasn't against what she did, but at the same time, something people like her would look at her funny for. As it turned out, she had some talent, although unrefined.

    She could find missing and stolen objects, find people through their belongings, and even begin to move things with her mind. She kept these powers to herself, worried that she would become an outcast.

    And then she found her sister. Or rather, her sister found her. Her eyes gleamed, her heart pounded with delight, but despite not getting any red flags, she couldn't believe it was her. She was so convinced that something had happened that she was blinded to the person in front of her, thinking she was some kind of monster trying to trick her.

    They fought in the middle of the night. When Aliasse showed her powers, Rosetta was even more convinced that this wasn't her sister. Out of rage, she used her telekinetic powers to shove her sister back. But even then, she was overpowered. She couldn't match how aggressively her sister played. She was forced to calm down, and when she finally, she looked into her sister's eyes. And there was a spark of a familiarity that lit up a light.

    The only way she could describe it was that their minds somehow touched. The instant it happened, she knew for sure this was her sister.

    Because of the ruckus they caused, hunters were swarming the area the day after, but the two of them already left to England where they laid low. They kept in touch with their family, telling them that they were hiding out, but didn't say from who or what. This wasn't a strange thing in the business, and so their parents didn't pry, simply expressing how glad they were that they were alive.

    They worked for a security firm to sustain themselves, and while it was sometimes harrowing, things never compared to the times they had against the supernatural, so this job was easy and it paid well. However, the hunters here found out and Aliasse decided to bring Rosetta to Manta Carlos.

    Rosetta had been told about the island and what magnificent creatures laid within, but she never thought about going there, whether from guilt or from fear. But when they decided, she didn't feel any strong omen against it, and so they made plans. Because of their upbringing, both of them were tutored at home. After hearing about the academy, she wanted to try out what it was like being a student. Aliasse had nothing against it and promised that when they got there, Rosetta would be in by the next semester.

Sensitive to premonitions, and seemingly very lucky. Reputation: She'd be seen as carefree, easily flustered but very friendly. Misc Information: --
