"I have seen boulders in the mountains broken open by violets and brick walls brought low by simple vines.
It is not brute force, but patience and tenacity that is the flower’s greatest strength."

About
Magdalene is a florist by trade with large, pale eyes and a sweep of strawberry blonde hair. Though she is gentle in both speech and mannerism she appears to have a touch of steel that has allowed her to hold her own amongst the Clan of Beasts for the past century. She holds tightly to her humanity and seems to act as a calming force and moral compass for her close associates.

And that Magadalene is the only Prince-Emeritus of which I have EVER heard means that there's more to her than first glance. Of course, once you take that first glance you'll find yourself wanting to repeat the experience. But never make the mistake of presuming that she is as soft or as fragile as the blooms of which she is so fond." - Malcolm Donovan

"Compassion hurts[...] You must grow strong enough to love the world,
yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors."

- Andrew Boyd

"And the wand-like lily, which lifted up, As a Maenad, its moonlight-coloured cup,
Till the fiery star, which is its eye, Gazed through clear dew on the tender sky;"

- Percy Bysshe Shelley

"A soft woman is simply a wolf caught in meditation."

- Pavana

Black Rose, Eliza Rickman

Pray lady, pray
Over our sins
You know
We'll grow our own.

Human, Of Monsters and Men

So breathe in, breathe out,
Let the human in.
The air is silk, shadows form a grin
If I lose control I feed the Beast within.

Breath of Life, Florence + The Machine

I was looking for a breath of life
A little touch of heavenly light
But all the choirs in my head sang,
No, oh oh oh

Tokyo (Vampires and Wolves), The Wombats

If you love me, let me go
Back to that bar in Tokyo
Where the Demons from my past leave me in peace
I'm sick of dancing with the Beast.
