Title or Positon:
Mask: Pythia is a pretty young woman looking to be in her early 20's. She has firey red hair, green eyes with gold flecks, pale skin that is dusted with freckles. Her face is heart shaped with a small, slightly upturned nose. She tends to dress demurely, in long maxi skirts and long-sleeved shirts, even in the heat. She often wears a pair of thin gloves on her hands, and her curls tend to hang in her face, partially obscuring her from the world around her. Around her neck is a hematite pendant that she is never seen without.
Mein: In her mein, Pythia is a girl made of stars. Tiny, brilliantly colored dots of light make up her shape, swirling and dipping as she moves. Her eyes are brilliant gold orbs set in her face.
Personality: Pythia is incredibly shy when first meeting someone, though once she warms up to them, she's quite chatty and friendly. She hates being touched, and avoids human contact whenever possible. She is never seen without her loyal Hedge Beast Companion, Shay, a small butterfly that stays deep in her pocket when she is in public. Pythia is agoraphobic, and as such, she tends to prefer to stay in a Citadel whenever possible. She will leave, if she has to, but her past traumas lead her to prefer to stay indoors, near people that she trusts. Pythia is young and innocent, and often inspires others to try to protect her.
History: Pythia was born Andrea Barnes. She was born in January of 1973, six months after her father was killed in Vietnam. Her mother was little more than a child herself, only 17 years old, and she had no idea how to handle having a child. By the time Pythia was 3, her mother was deeply involved in drugs and multiple sex partners, and the child was bounced between family members and foster homes.
Taken at a young age, Pythia remembers nothing of the life she led before she was stolen. Or, at least, she claims to remember nothing from her childhood. She doesn't even seem to know her original name. She also claims to have forgotten everything visited upon her while in Arcadia, although there are moments where it seems as though she remembers more than she lets on.
In 2002, she was fished from the hedge by a member of the CUT. Terrified and starving, he took her in, and quickly realized what abilities she possessed. What started as a safe haven and a warm meal turned into a prison of another kind. Once again, she was cut off from the real world and kept in a prison, used by the CUT for her divination abilities and her knowledge of the Occult.
In January of 2011, during a raid on a CUT facility in Rhode Island, Pythia was found and rescued by members of The Accord, where she first met Jason Harvick. She was already a Believer, of course, and her choices were clear. Joining the Accord was her only option. Pythia quickly took to the Accord, throwing herself into learning everything she could.
In 2011, Pythia was inducted into The Gatekeepers due to her occult knowledge and her oracular abilities. She was not active in the Division for long before losses to her Clarity forced her to step away from Accord society. She has spent the last two years finding herself and regaining her sanity, finally taking the time to heal from her many years of imprisonment. She has since returned from her sabbatical with her arsenal of knowledge at the ready.
