Poena Damni, branch - grandeur
Full Name: 'Lady Ophelia Angelique Marie-Véronique la Alestina-Genevieve de Delcroix, Baroness of Penthièvre, Elementalist Supreme, Crimson Sorceress of The Court of Magi and Heiress of House Delcroix'
Ophelia does not rely on any material weapons.
- 「As her title of 'Elementalist Supreme' would imply, Ophelia is a skilled Elemental Mage. She can conjure and manipulate 'classic' elements such as [Water], [Air], [Fire] and [Earth]. In addition to this, her 'perfection' has allowed her to even extend this to more advanced form of conjuration and manipulation, such as combining the base elements to create other elements.」
- 「As the Sin of Grandeur, Ophelia has an almost inexhaustible pool of silliage. This allows her to 'match' or even 'surpass' others in terms off magical ability - the conviction she holds in her own abilities allowing her to break her 'skill ceiling'.」
- 「After being turned into a Demon by Lucifer herself, Ophelia has become immortal along the same vein of the other Sins - only able to die by the hands of Lucifer. And, as a Demon, she is physically superior to most humans.」
Ophelia 'suffers', as her Branch of Sin would suggest,from an 'intense' sense of grandeur. Her belief in her powers as an Elementalist is absolute. In her mind, she believes her power alone sets her above most others, with her pampered lifestyle reinforcing this. She thrives off of adoration, the praise of the citizens she presides over generally being enough to keep her content. And, when she is confronted with someone that doesn't provide her with the adoration and respect she deserves, she only feels amusement.
Anger is something that is generally lost on Ophelia, making her neigh-impossible to insult or even aggravate. After all, she views most as her playthings. Therefore, she cares very little about the opinions of others as she usually writes them off as unimportant unless she actually requests their opinion.
Even if she seems to be detached from her humanity, Ophelia is still an emotional individual. She laughs, cries and exhibits all the traits of a 'normal' person, completely hiding the fact she's a demon. Yet, at times her own sense of grandeur can get the best of her. In these moments, she becomes so drunk off her own power that she becomes almost impossible to reason with. This is when she's most dangerous, as she does away with any and all pretense, focusing solely on the eradication of whatever stands in her way.
Whether or not Ophelia is able to love is still up for debate. While she can certainly derive pleasure from the company of others, any long-lasting attachments are yet to be tested.
Ophelia was raised in the lap of luxury. Coming from a noble family who were known to produce powerful Elementalists, Ophelia was allowed to have any and everything she could have ever desired. Anything she wanted would always be a finger snap away. From a young age, she sat far above the common folk, being taught to view them as little more than plebeians who existed only for her entertainment. And entertain they did, for she commanded it.
By the age of 12, the girl had, unknowingly, forced several people to die for her entertainment. Ophelia would casually demand the most dangerous of tasked to be preformed without any thought for the safety of the person attempting the feats. From demanding people ride horses upside down, balancing on their hands, to making them fight animals twice their size with their bare hands.
She was never reprimanded for any of her actions. She was never taught the difference between right and wrong. When she did learn of the results of her actions, she felt nothing. The value of life was lost on the girl and this created a fear in her parents. They recognized their mistake, but they knew it would be impossible to fix it. Not only was the girl completely detached from any form of humanity, but she was slowly growing stronger and stronger.
As such, her parents decided to rid themselves of their mistake in the form of Penthièvre, a small city they had lordship over. They 'gave' it to Ophelia as a gift, explaining that it would be hers to 'oversee'. But while Ophelia may have been ignorant to the concept of 'humanity', she had the education expected of someone that hailed from nobility. So, she knew her parents were attempting to rid themselves of her, but she more than happy to accept.
At the age of 17, Ophelia had replaced the governor of Penthièvre, taking on the title of Baroness. With a combination of her own intelligence and her advisers, she proved to be an competent ruler. But old habits die hard. As her skill as an Elementalist grew and her 'subjects' revered her as a ruler, Ophelia merely grew more and more detached from her humanity.
And it was then that Ophelia met Lucifer. It was almost like she was in a dream of some sort, but the words Lucifer spun were music the girl's ears. With the promise of becoming a God-Queen, Ophelia followed Lucifer to Alptraum. For six months she was gone, being trained by Lucifer to fully reach the height of her ability as an Elementalist. But her advisers kept it a secret, fearing what would happen if it came out Ophelia was missing.
But, she returned as if nothing had changed. But, she was different. Her yellow eyes and fangs being a silent sign that something was wrong. Yet, Ophelia continued to act the same, putting on the same public face. But, in the back of her mind... She was waiting. Waiting for Lucifer to put her plan into actions, and the moment she could ascend to God-Queen, finally taking the throne she deserved.
But, as she waits, she's been looking. Investigating her family history, perhaps in hopes of finding a way to grow stronger. But, she did find some interesting people. Her grandfather, Mikhail Hildebrand and her half-brother, a delightfully filthy criminal by name of Ikarus Norwyn. In addition to this, she has recently joined the Court of Magi in Riparias.
