Viva la Vida
former queen of the court of wrath
Terra is the epitome of fire and ice. Don’t let her glacial appearance fool you—behind her icy complexion is a soul burning brighter than the sun. She tends to have an unpredictable temperament, but there’s one thing you can always trust her to do: fight, and fight hard.
She tends to dress more stereotypically than one might expect, sporting a single-color tank top, camouflage pants, and combat boots. Her clothing hides taut muscle, though, and she is well versed in the ways of hand-to-hand combat. She knows more ways to kill you than there are crayons in the biggest box you can find, and her ways might be more colorful, too. She earned the title of Queen, and damn if she lets you forget it.
Though not always the best friend to have, Terra is reliable in a crisis, and knows how to handle herself under pressure. While Hungry Tatarind Lalonde tends to be the man to go to in times of peace, Terra is the woman to see in times of war. If she so much as sees a threat to the Crimson Table’s integrity, she’ll run in, fists and eyes ablaze.
Stepped down from queen after Anna’s death.
Terra is an army brat, born and raised, and she’ll tell you the same. She sticks to her guns, and she never backs down from a fight. That’s what got her into this situation in the first place.
One winter when she was a teenager, on a day when she was home alone, Terra found a woman standing in their backyard out in the cold. Terra informed the woman that she was trespassing, and that if she didn’t move, she might have a bad situation on her hands. The woman informed her, with skin pale as the fallen snow, that she might want to cool down if she truly wanted the woman to leave. Terra, not knowing the meaning of “cool down,” acted in rage and started toward the woman with fury in her heart.
Terra escaped the endless icy landscape years later to find that almost no time had passed, that her old self was still in high school, and that she had nowhere to turn. She had done the unthinkable and run from her problems to get home, and now there was no home to go to.
She stopped running away then and there, and she hasn’t started since.
