- “This is, in part, why there is less magic in the world today. Magic is secret and secrets are magic, after all, and years upon years of teaching and sharing magic and worse. Writing it down in fancy books that get all dusty with age has lessened it, removed its power bit by bit.” ~Erin Morgenstern
(OOC knowledge unless learned ICly)
1978- Emme was born to Deanna, a Mastigos Guardian, and Anthony Emerson, a Mastigos Arrow. Anthony was killed on a mission before Emme was born.
1980-1982- San Jose, Costa Rica- Emme’s mother, Deanna, enters the U.S. Foreign Service as a Political Officer and receives Costa Rica as her first assignment.

1985-1986- Reykjavik, Iceland
1987- 1989- Berlin, West Germany. In early November Emme and Deanna watched the events of the dismantling of the Berlin Wall unfolding on TV. Deanna was wise enough to know that it would not be safe to be out among the crowds during the first few days. Deanna later took her to a section of the Wall during the day and explained that there were some in the world who seek to control and oppress people. Although Emme thought that Deanna was referring to communists, this conversation made a profound impression on her.
1990-1992- Moscow, Russia. At this post, Deanna was in a more senior position and due to the demands of this position Emme ended up spending a lot of time with Anna, her nanny, and Anna’s family including her brother, Dmitri. Anna and Dmitri taught her Russian.

1994- 1997 Deanna was assigned to Lima, Peru as the senior political officer during Emme’s sophomore year in college. Emme did not live full time there, but visited on school breaks. While there during winter break her senior year she was kidnapped by Seers, went through her awakening, was rescued from the abduction by members of the Lima Consilium, and witnessed her mother’s murder.
1997-1998- Rabat, Morocco- Emme decided to enter the Foreign Service. It was the only life she had known and she needed to have a feeling of familiarity at this point. It also was a very good fit for her abilities. She decided to pursue the Political Officer career track- the same as her mother. She knew that she would likely encounter endless comparisons to her mother and be measured by the high standard left by her. However, none of the other career tracks were a fit for her.
In her job with the embassy she was assigned to work on a pilot project to combat child labor. Her role was to develop contacts for information exchange and promote U.S. positions. In order to do this she made contacts with officials in the Moroccan education department and local education non-profit leaders. She was also assigned to work with a locally-hired political specialist, Simone Adjani, who provided advice on local politics and culture.
1998-1999- Emme was sent on her next assignment to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic in April 1998 as a Political Officer working on education and religion issues. She met and was mentored by a Guardian named Coach. He was very abrasive toward Emme at first, but when he saw her capability at protecting the veil he was impressed and began to warm to her. This was just in time too because on September 22, 1998 Hurricane Georges, a category 3 hurricane, made a direct hit onto the DR causing $1 billion in damages, killing almost 400 people. Emme and Coach worked on the disaster relief efforts together.
1999-2000- Port-au-Prince, Haiti. After her performance in the DR she was given a promotion and was made the political section head in Haiti. She aided the Haitian government in the capture of Jean-Paul Rameau, a high profile fugitive. She also worked closely with Chantal Toussaint, a host country national at the embassy.

2008- She assisted DC's Hierarch to negotiate a peace treaty with the local Seers. She was shortly thereafter named Herald of the Consilium.
2010-present- Emme realized that her commitments in awakened society would now keep her too busy to be able to maintain her day job at the State Department. She decided to step away from public service and created a consulting firm.
2014- She became the Mastigos Path Councilor
Emme is pretty (SL x2). She is 5’9” with an athletic build. She has medium-long brown hair and greenish-hazel eyes. She is friendly and extroverted. She is well spoken and someone that the Hierarch sometimes sends as a negotiator. She is very likeable and rarely offends those she interacts with. She easily makes a new best friend out of a stranger. She is a born leader and has a way about her that makes people trust her and want to follow her.
She has high standards, but comes across as reasonable and fair. She is good at convincing people to do things she asks them to do and is good at convincing them that her version of events is the correct one.
Darkness forms behind her and far away light appears like oncoming headlights. It keeps getting closer until it is very bright- almost blinding.
- Her voice is so soothing, she could convince the Hulk to calm the f%#$ down!
- She is extremely convincing, to the point that she could convince a blind man that he's actually able to see.
- She is actually a Silver Ladder in too deep with the Guardians.
- She could sell ice to an Eskimo. She's got a way with words and is extremely persuasive. Oh, don't mock her with the whole 'Seductress - women get whatever they want by sleeping with guys' crap. She's a better shot than me." - Frost, Cabal Mate
