Cassandra Van Buren "I'll show you the divide in our class!"
‣ Birth Name: Cassandra Van Buren ‣ Aliases: Cass, Honey Trap ‣ Gender: Female ‣ Age: Seventeen (17) ‣ Birth Day: October 16th ‣ Arcana: Lovers ‣ Evoker: Tarot Card ‣ Place of Residence: Zela Academy Dorms ‣ School Year: Third Year ‣ Class:
‣ After School Club(s): ∙ Martial Arts Club ∙ Chess club
‣ Part Time Job(s): ∙ Heiress ∙ Candy Shop Worker
Standing at 5'4" and weighing in at 105 pounds is the unconquerable beauty that is Cassandra Van Buren. Fair skin, caramel eyes, and honey colored locks; Cassandra styles hair into long, over sized ringlet curls in a Victorian Europe-era fashion with two small forelocks, and occasionally wears a blue bow in the back. During the warmer seasons her school uniform consists of a seifuku, predominantly red and white with a blue bola tie. Underneath the skirt, she adorns black shorts and completes her outfit with matching black socks and short, red boots. She also wears brown fingerless gloves.
During the colder seasons, her 'uniform' shifts to accommodate the weather. She wears a red long sleeve jacket with a blue frill shirt and a white frill folded sleeves underneath and a white ascot tie at the center of her collar, red frill skirt and black stockings that cover her entire legs.
While not in school, Cassandra's closet consists of rather high class wear. She enjoys keeping up with the latest fashion trends while keeping a'classy' air about herself. Especially within the eye of the public. Although, she has a fascination with showing skin when the weather allows.
Cassandra is a self proclaimed princess and won't stop until everyone realizes it. She holds herself to quite the high standard and could be considered a perfectionist to a certain degree. Self-reliant and independent to a fault, she disregards asking for assistance in most instances where she would need it. Cass is also quite stubborn and argumentative, although in most cases, she takes into consideration the consequences of voicing her opinion before doing so. That is of course, if she's not fired up about something.
Protective and possessive, what's hers is hers. Sharing isn't something she does so easily but upon making your way into her heart, it becomes almost second nature for Cassandra to care for said person. Her alias 'Honey Trap' comes from her overall looks and clashing personality. Besides the fact her hair resembles the color of honey, she looks like a very sweet, kind, and delicate girl; Cassandra has claws, fangs, and a venomous tongue that lashes out at all who try her. Her charisma combined with her vanity and haughtiness makes her a deadly rival.
Due to her upbringing, failure is never an option. She gives 120% in all of her affairs. She has an image to keep up after all, and if she wants to be the next head of her family's company, she has to show she has the ability to actually do so. This also means that she has to hide her rather extremely lewd and perverse side from the public eye. No one can know that she dreams of being a dominatr-- anyway, the princess does have quite a sweet and vulnerable side to her though. As those every one. She gets flustered easily and flirtatious comments from those of the opposite sex can cause her to stumble almost instantly if said by someone she finds attractive. Although, she'll do everything in her power to never let you see her sweat. Even if that means fabricating and hiding feelings.
—Strength Name: Bushido Beauty —Description: "The way of the warrior" -- Bushido is Cassandra's choice of martial arts. She purposely took up the art because of morals in which it values. Stressing some combination of frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery, and honor until death.
—Strength Name: Queen's Gambit —Description: "One of the oldest known chess openings" -- The Queen's Gambit is still frequently played and it remains an important part of many grand masters' opening repertoires. Cassandra is a skilled chess player and in being that, she is a quick thinker and can formulate plans (devious and otherwise) quite frequently and effectively. She rolls with the punches and plays the cards she is dealt effectively. This has also rolled in to her being quite business savvy.
—Strength Name: Maiden's Heart —Description: "A girl's heart, an ocean of secrets" -- Although frugal and rather wary as to trusting others, Cassandra can't be completely cold towards other humans. She is a compassionate and friendly individual upon getting to know. She has fears and dreams just like any other. And she won't let anything happen t her loved ones. Friends and otherwise.
—Strength Name: Literature Lover —Description: "Magic spells, fairy tales, lost at sea, and mystery." -- An avid reader and lover of almost all the genres, Cassandra will engross herself in a good book to fuel her already active imagination. Comic book, manga, novel; she doesn't discriminate. Although, she may be hesitant to reveal her obsession with magic and uh, erotic novels...
—Strength Name: Debutante Daughter —Description: "Always wear your invisible crown" -- Cassandra comes from a high-class family. Therefore, she was raised to have manners, poise, and to have the knowledge of how to behave in high-end affairs. She can speak eloquently when need be and she knows the difference between the salad and dinner forks.
—Weakness Name: Heavy Crown —Description: "Lift up your head princess, your crown will fall" -- The burden of following in her parent's footsteps is always biting at the back of her conscience. Cassandra has big shoes to fill and sometimes, the pressure can get the best of her.
—Weakness Name: Vulture —Description: "Don't play dead with a vulture. That's exactly what they want" -- An opportunist. Cassandra will scope out any flaw in whatever's blocking her progress and use it to her advantage. This may even resort to her using people without seeing the problem in it. As long as they don't get hurt, what's the problem?
—Weakness Name: Maiden's Rage —Description: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" -- Don't do it. Cassandra is extremely fiery and has an awful temper. She hold grudges and plots revenge. It's the second sweetest feeling on this planet. Next to love of course.
—Weakness Name: Hopeless Romantic —Description: "I do believe in that, a miracle romance" -- All Cass wants is to be swept off her feet by her prince charming. And unfortunately, this causes her to chase after the wrong guy often. Leaving her open for a devastating let down or eventual heartbreak. She will try to make any potential romantic situation happen with the right guy. And uh, that can get annoying.
—Weakness Name: What's Done In The Dark —Description: "Will eventually come to the light" -- Cassandra has interests that if they were found out, she fears would be detrimental to the success of her family. And herself at that. So she keeps them locked up. Hidden deep within the confines of her mind. But she knows that eventually, she'll get found out. So it haunts her in a sense.
‣ Soul Bound Weapon:
Weapon Name: Reine de cœurs (Queen of hearts) Weapon Description: An 8 foot whip with a metal handle for easy and tight gripping. The color scheme being predominately black and being accented with red and white hearts. Weapon Image: [♚] Weapon Attack Type: Slash Weapon Element:
The sole heir to the Van Buren Candy Factory empire, Cassandra's birth was more or less an accident. A combination of ignorance, lust, and lack there of contraceptive caused an unexpected pregnancy from what was suppose to be nothing but a one night stand that would supposedly fall under the radar. But of course, things don't always go as one plans them to, and you must make do with what you are given.
Her father had no real intentions of having children. And even if he did, he wanted a son. So upon being called to the hospital to find out that his fling had resulted in the birth of a daughter, he was quite discouraged. However, he would not take it out on the baby. The child had nothing to do with it. It was his ignorance that brought her into this world and as a self proclaimed responsible adult, he would see to it that she lived a life fit for a Van Buren.
This meant that he would take her away from her mother. He and his help would raise the baby. She would be bred to take on and continue the empire he had started. Of course, that meant when she came of age, she would be subject to whatever classes he saw fit for her to take. Etiquette, Business and Finance, the whole lot. And he honestly had no real care for her personal wants and desires.
That is of course, until Cassandra began to grow older and her father began to love and cherish his daughter. She became the light of his dark and manipulative world with ease. His plans to mold her into the next heir had flown out the window. He just wanted her to live a happy and peaceful life. She deserved that much.
Until her mother began filing for custody..
Her father refused to let Cassandra's mother ruin his precious daughter's life. But he also couldn't allow the issue to interfere with her growing up and living the happy life that he wanted for her. So Cassandra was sent off to live with her Uncle until the legal matters were dealt with.
Years went by, and Cassandra grew older. She would inquire to her uncle about her parents. Only to be told that her father was a child prodigy to some extent and her mother... A whore who got lucky. Having never seen her mother, Cassandra assumed she was a treacherous woman. Only in it for the money. Going so far as to create these fabricated imaginations of her mother being a prostitute of some sort. She would never be like her. Ever. This fueled her to be the best, at everything. She would take over the family business and never be considered anything like that woman.
Upon hearing of his daughter's resolve, her father rejoiced in disbelief, she was actually going to follow in his footsteps towards taking over the family business. However, he knew what large sums of money did to the youth who had access to it. So he locked her a majority of her funds away. She would receive access to it upon graduating high school.
She transferred to Zela Academy to continue her schooling. There, a latent personality trait surfaced within the girl. Cassandra had an extreme fascination for lewd and perverse acts. The novels, the act itself, they called to her. This.. This had to be traits of her mother rearing it's ugly head. Go away! You would ruin everything she worked so hard for! But no matter how hard she begged to be left alone, the temptations came back twice as hard. And she fell victim to them. She loved the tingle the acts gave her.
Maybe... Maybe she'd be fine if daddy never found out? No, not just daddy. No one could find out. It would ruin her and the family... So she would keep her princess face to the public. No one would know what laid within. And it'd be perfectly fine that way.

Since Azores is about to end (which is the current main plot), I know making a character and participating in it can be alittle upsetting. It's like picking up a video game and the only save data is at the final boss. You really don't get to enjoy the game. You can still join to RP with people in this plot until it ends, and bring the character over to the new plot to start over again.
However, since the plot is almost over, we are deciding on a mini plot to run between the old main plot and the new one coming. You can use your character for this plot and still use them for the next plot aswell, considering this mini plot is sort of like a stand alone one. It doesn't really effect the others.
Then comes the new plot. This has yet to be released and started. Normally, because of plot reasons, old characters can't transfer to this one. But seeing how you're new and you literally had no choice in the matter since the Azores plot is ending very soon, I don't mind you bringing this character over to it when it starts.
At the end of the day, it's up to you where you want to use her, though.
Just a heads up, since the main plot are having their final bout about now.
