Dani appears to be a young woman of about 25 years, with blond hair, blue eyes and light skin. She is of average height, but there's something about her that makes her stand out in a crowd. Maybe it's the gold steampunk-esque coat she always wears... (SL 2, Presence 4)
Dani's pale skin is nearly a true white with gold patterning over it (as if to match some Victorian wallpaper), while her blond hair shows streaks of gold. She wears a black apple necklace.
Dani's mantle is a feeling of humming anticipation, those moments between tune-up and the first song at a musical performance. Any changeling who comes within 5 feet of her and has a mantle equal or lower than 4 will find their mantle picking up music appropriate to their court and mantle. If there is more than one changeling that she can affect, the music is always harmonious and somehow suits all appropriate courts.
Always carries a blue violin (unless you can see through the mask, in which case it's sometimes pure gold). She likes wearing necklaces too, including a vial of red liquid she calls 'river water' on a rainbow cord, and a new black apple pendant.

Dani has admitted to a select few that she was the oldest of five children, and she was taken on the way home from school. She remembers escaping the Hedge in both New London, CT, and Boston, MA. She joined the Accord after literally running into an Abomination while performing on the streets of her city August 10, 2012. She had begun to think her memories of New London were false, except that Uriel found her in Boston in July 2014.
Dani treats her violin like a teddy bear.
Dani has yet to meet a style of music she doesn't love.
If the problem can't be solved with music, Dani isn't sure it's worth solving.
Dani asked Senka to do something terrible during Operation Old Peculiar. Senka didn't have to follow through.
She doesn't drink alcohol, but the Shirley Temples she devours suit her more anyway.
Once upon a time, someone thought Dani had a thumb. Just one, mostly useful thumb. She has since dissuaded them of this idea.
You know the song, "The Devil went down to Georgia"? She's done that with a Keeper.
To Changeling sight, her violin really is made of gold.
Meeting Red Tape is on her bucket list.
"I'm Dani. No last name. Kinda like Cher."
"Okay. The Truth is kinda like Cthulhu. It's not Cthulhu. But it wants to eat our universe."
"The Court of Fear taught me a lot. Watch this."
"Others sometimes don't understand when I tell them that the whole world is just one song, all of us players in the orchestra."
"The Keepers took us from our family. Does building a new one mean we win?"
"A debt is an uncomfortable thing. I didn't want it unpaid until the next time we go down there."
To Gabriel "Oh, you're him! Can you tell me a thing? Can you tell me if Jesus Christ was a Spring Court Fairest?!?"
"You think she is as innocent or naive as she acts? That's adorable she was in the court of Fear for a reason..." - Twice-Spun
"Some people are the strong right arm of the Accord. Some people are its eyes and voice and mind. Dani is one of the rare few that are its heart. Easy to ignore when everyone's running around playing soldiers, but very dangerous to forget." - F1R3W@LL
"I like her." - Ingrid
"Dani is a genuinely good person. Do you know how fantastic that is? How rare that is? Knowing that there are people like her around makes me feel better about the world at large." - Simon
"She's great to chill out with. Hopefully the rest of the world will stop exploding sometime?" - Sethos
"Some are made to be sacrificed." - Harvey Rendell
"Dani....Just....She seems so kind. She tries so hard. I worry for what lies behind it, and what happened before. She is my friend, and I have her back. I will not ask, but if she ever wants to talk, she knows I am here." - Eric Barrett
"Saving the world one ballad at a time. Bards are way more important in war than anyone gives them credit for anymore, but my People haven't forgotten..." - Naveed Weiss
"This woman serves an INCREDIBLY useful position in the Accord. Morale. Yeah, we've got hitters, and we've got scholars. But the people who just want to make others comfortable are what keep the hitters and scholars fighting." - Aurora Coventry
"Quiet and unassuming at first glance, she opens up into an incredibly loving and kind young lady. I would gladly have her in my home time and time again. Not to diminish the fact that she is an amazing violinist in any way! Dani is pure magic." - Ryanne Reidy
"Dani is kind. Mostly adorably kind. Sometimes terrifyingly kind. But always, from what I've seen, kind. I can't imagine she'll be kind to the Truth - and I don't envy it. Did you know, in the wild animals smile to show off the sharpness of their teeth?" - Art
"Pack is family you choose, right? Understand that Dani chose well and often. Now keep that in mind before you try to hurt her. Not that she will hurt you. I don't think that's her way. Those of us who consider her pack? We will." - Gerald
"She saved my life, and probably my soul. For that, she is my kin. Also, all the strings on Wolf Fifth's latest album? That's her." - Dylis
"There is beauty in her song." - Houston
"She has a standing engagement at the bar whenever she wants. I love listening to her play. But whatever you do, do NOT give her caffeine. Of any kind. Got it." - Jason Harvick
"I don't think she is as young as she portrays herself to be. She has far too much wisdom for that. But, regardless she is a friend." - Beth
"She is the sunrise after a long dark night. Brightness and light. Good for fucking her." - Shade
"Dude, she's fucking metal. She was in Miami when the zombies hit. We rocked out by the citadel while we watched the world burn. She's a fucking Legate - competence is a given." - Shkira to Simon
"Remember the foolish, suicidal, selfless and beautiful act that brought you there... and the home that is waiting for you." - Red Tape
"She's not scary-weird, like most Accordists. But she's not human, either" - Dancer
"I don't know her very well. However, she calls me her nephew and it helps her to pet my fur. Sometimes that's enough to be family." - David Shattuck
"She seemed to be good at Legate-ing, but I'm pretty sure she's a Martyr; what little I know of Martyrs says they are not only more than willing to die for their causes, but they also expect other members of the Dawn Court to do the same. Speaking as a Dawn Courtier who isn't looking to sacrifice myself, for the 'greater good' or otherwise, that makes interacting with her... uncomfortable." - Volt
"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." -Aldous Huxley
Art - I seem to keep collecting mages. But he looked like he needed a home.
Lucian - It's almost too much fun to tease him. Really, if he could motley, he would be motley.
F1R3W@LL - Awesome computer robot. I like her attitude.
Rhys - I don't think he realized he was going to gain a little sister when he started something with my brother. But he's handling it well...
- Really, did he think he could date Twice-Spun without being adopted by the motley? Welcome to the family.
Simon - He makes me want to strive to be a better person, to live up to his expectations. I'm not sure I'm that good, though.
Gerald - He's often overlooked, which is a shame, because he's a brilliant craftsman, has a great sense of humor, and is genuinely a good friend.
Jason Harvick - He's got this gruff exterior, but I know his theme music.
Dylis - Kin and music friend.
Shkira - Music man who understands that Family isn't always what you're born into.
Ryanne Reidy - I want to bring her home and introduce her to Twice-Spun.
Giacomo Roman - He's cute and cuddly and I want to bring him back to Boston with me. Not as anything more than a friend, you understand, but he seemed to get along well with Twice-Spun.
Bruce - He makes me think of terrible 80s love songs. Like George Michael and Soft Cell.
Gladius - He knows a lot of SCIENCE! And he's funny without really seeming to realize it.
Eric Barrett - Are all mages this serious? But very good at his work.
Danica Barrows - She's so pretty, it's kinda intimidating. But she's really nice to go with it.
Sethos - He makes me think of the song 'Only The Good Die Young' - in that he is a really good person, and I'm so glad the death didn't stick so I could get to know him. And Melinda, her too.
Arthur Granby - We got someone back...
Bohiti - Someone who understands music.
Ingrid - Ingrid tells it straight. I don't have to guess where I stand with her. That's relaxing.
Harvey Rendell - I don't know why everyone seems worried about him. He's always nice to me.
Lost and Fallen
Twicespun - My big brother in every way that counts.
Collin Bonney - I think I can learn a lot from him. I'll have to see if he lets me.
Evangeline - I hope you knew, you were one of my first friends in Boston.
Chances are good that if you spend any amount of time around Dani or she's heard enough about you, she's trying to come up with your personal Theme Song. These are the ones she's currently decided upon. These may or may not reflect how she feels about you.
