Miyazono Kaori, Series Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
Musical magic: this is more of a passive ability, Alyssa's put so much love and effort into her music that it has begun to take on a magical life of its own. It can express raw powerful emotions to those who hear it. This woman is able to convey feelings through the sounds that her instrument makes, She has little to no control over this, playing based on spontaneity and whim, whatever Alyssa feels in the moment is what comes out of the song. Her songs can create images, nostalgic memories that never existed, or heart break where none was, this magic that has begun to exist within her conjures and riles up powerful feelings to those whom hear it.
Magic Avatar of winter: Her control over this power is crude at best right now calling it volatile and unstable would be the better choice of words. Snow and ice move at her mental command, she can shape it and direct it, move it, but only in loose awkward shapes as things stand, without real practice anyway. With some concentration, she can exert effort and begin to free things with the power within, releasing some of the winter storm that is contained inside of her body. Typically Alyssa has an awkward level of control over it, but as her emotions run high, the powers flow more easily, erratically and absolutely uncontrollably depending on her emotional state. She draws strength from the natural winter, and inversely when its summer Alyssa's magical power dwindles, but does not disappear, it is simply harder to freeze things when the sun is constantly melting it.
Alyssa's nature originally was that of a sweet heart, honest, kind, and to a large extent that still exists within her. However the life that the girl has led, between being taken advantage of by people, or abused by parents has soured her a bit. Repressing the anger from the treatment at home, it can lead to some blowups, yet most of the time she is gentle. On the rare occasion that something makes her angry enough to lose control Alyssa's wrath is no different than a raging blizzard, that explodes outwards in a frigid raging vortex.
Most of the time though, Alyssa is a soft spoken girl, blushes easily and is no where near as tough as she would like others to think that she is.
Alyssa is afraid of two things more than anything else, heights and large dogs.
Born to a lower middle class pair whose love barely extended to tolerating one another, Alyssa was an unwanted, unloved child. Her parents, Johnathan and Maria Havenheart barely noticed the girls susceptibility to heat and her near immunity to the cold, the young girl grew up mostly alone. Her mother and father were negligent at best, at a young age she was feeding herself, at worst they took out frustrations on her with harsh words that would stem from reasons far too complicated for a child.
The saving grace in the girls life was her aunt who adored the girl and doted on her constantly, likely she'd have adopted her niece but, once a respected musician, whose life turned sour from the glamorous life of drugs and party. Unfit as a guardian she still mentored the girl in many ways, as she grew the thing most taken away from her beloved aunt was the love of music. Alyssa had little skill or talent for the musical art but she made it up through steadfast determination and persistence, hours of plucking away at strings or reading up, school suffered but there was no one to really discipline the girl as she did mostly whatever it was she wished.
She was a quiet child who struggled to make any sort of friendship even in passing, her social skills weren't quite the best with no one to teach the girl. Although her aunt loved her, the woman was often unreliable, lost in a drug addled haze. It wasn't that Alyssa was unlikable, but she had grown up quiet, a lot to say yet too shy to utter whatever words brewed behind closed lips.
Her health waned during the summer as she faltered under the relentless sun, and yet the young woman's strength was bolstered during the coldest of months, ice and snow never held Alyssa back. This was because of the magic she kept hidden from her family, the power of winter, untrained but there like a storm always brewing and building out of sight. It felt like she may be the embodiment of winter itself given human form, or perhaps that a self absorbed observation on her own part. Either way there was a power hidden beneath her depths, kept out of the spot light for she feared that her parents whom had grown obsessed with the growing cult of the world might use or even sell her for their own benefit.
Focused on her dream of hitting it big as a musician the young woman continues to bumble her way through life, despite the skill she's built up as a musician and the power that dwells within, you can often find the girl playing on street corner, trying to get by. From birth she was a quiet, kind hearted girl, but the cruelty she suffered- still suffers from others and this has festered the seeds of anger, hate that stew within. A capacity for both light and dark dwell within, which path will she choose, will she choose a path, or will Alyssa Havenheart disappear into history as quietly and unremarkably as she entered.
