Name: Fawn

Seeming: Darkling

Kith: Palewraith

Court: Winter

Mantle: 4

Title or Position: Winter Monarch (former Swagmaster of Cere-moneys)

Motley: The Briar Bitch

Position on Board: Cabin Wraith


Mask: Fawn's short black hair could use a comb and a wash. She's 5'1" and the sort of heavy that would never be described as voluptuous or curvy - pudgy or chubby though, definitely. Her face is unremarkable, her eyes a drab brown with stubby eyelashes, and when she grins crookedly, her front teeth are chipped. She's easy enough to pass over.

Mein: Fawn's hair goes from black to snow white, and two rinky-dinky antlers grow out of her skull. Her already pale flesh grows translucent in parts, almost see-through; bits of the rest of her seem frozen - blushes that should be rosy pink are instead a cold blue. She has a distinctly deerish/faunish cast to her features.

Mantle: The deceptive cold that accompanies a bright, sunny day in Winter. Seemingly light at first, manifesting in a massive temperature drop within minutes.

Monarch: During Winter, Fawn's rinky-dinky antlers grow out into a full 16-point rack; the tips of these antlers are a gleaming silver, easy to miss if you're not looking for it. Fawn remains chubby and messy, but she tries to dress a little more nicely than usual.



Fawn presents an Artful Dodger-esque personality, content to be a street rat. She has a sleazy sort of charisma to her, an earnestness in her ugly little face that makes her hard to resist even when she's helping herself to the contents of your wallet or gifting you some random thing she brought you to make up for past wrongs. She's friendly and eager to meet new people, and is passing through the Freehold the way a stray cat would: stopping here and there, mapping out her favorite haunts and having shoes thrown at her when she's not welcome. Her cheerfulness and devil-may-care attitude seems at odds with her being a Winter, which she shrugs off as "one of them things." Butch and fond of plaid men's shirts, but tries to clean it up a bit during Winter.

Known History:

Fawn generally slummed around with the less well-behaved kids in her neighborhood and was a bit of a terror. She never finished high school, in part because she was taken in the middle of it.

After breaking through the hedge almost two decades after her disappearance, Fawn has settled into a life of thievery, stealing objects and secrets. Less like a suave, accomplished Catwoman type and more like a slightly-sleazy petty burglar. Technically homeless and unemployable by virtue of her lack of education, Fawn slums around NYC doing "heavy lifting" work for folks. Fawn has joined up with the Briar Bitch motley after failing at robbing Jin's market stall and being forced to work it off. This was misinterpreted as a gesture of friendliness; feed Fawn and give her a space to crash, and you may not be able to get rid of Fawn.

As of January 2014, she is the Freehold of the Bitten Apple's Winter Monarch. She's also started to build her resume, assisting Liz Shaw at her detective agency.

Rumors About Fawn:

  • Should you give Fawn twenty bucks, good fortune will follow you.
  • Fawn has never paid for a drink in her life. If she ever has to pay for a drink, it will cause the serpent that gnaws at the roots of the world to come forth and devour reality as we know it. So maybe you shouldn't let her pay for her drinks...?
  • Sharing a toke with Fawn is a sure way to get a wish to come true.
  • She came out of the hedge skinny as a rail - the chub she's got on there, that's new.

  • Fawn? No, that's Fisher - the kid that runs errands for us.
  • Fawn? No, that's Fox. Runs things through the Hedge sometimes.

  • She'll surprise us all some day. Not sure with what but I'm sure it'll be surprising - Jin
  • One of the bros, she can take care of herself, and is a wingman extraordinaire.

At least, that's what I choose to believe. - Gris

  • Jin: ...you know, things have gotten really bad when you're being the sensible one.

  • I don't know that I can be a good monarch. I just want people to quit bein' assholes to each other.
  • You do what you got to do, man.


Motleymates: Yeah, I hang out with them sometimes.

  • Connor - A genuinely good person who tried to keep some assholes in line and gave us a soft place to fall. Sucked at the former, was pretty good at the latter.

  • Mae - Please get better so it's not just me and Iarann and our stupid broken hearts.

Fellow Seasonals: My Peeps
