Description

Stunning. In both mortal seeming and fae mien Jenyssa’s lithe form is always draped in the latest fashions. To changeling eyes these are often more revealing than mortal taboos allow. But in a Fiona court it is merely passé. Her raven-black hair is styled just so to attract attention to her best features. Her dark eyes seem to drink in anyone she looks at. They sit like two polished spheres of obsidian on the pale field of her alabaster skin, which is adorned with various arcane tattoos.

Personality

She is sensuality incarnate. It’s not just her looks, it’s her silken voice, her liquid grace, the sway of her hips. She knows how to make men (and women) flock to her. She's even found your way into Amaltheia's bed a few times (not that it’s all that difficult). Of course, like all things, it’s just another means to an end.

Background

Though a high-ranking noble of House Leanhaun, Countess Jenyssa was anything but important in the real world. That is, until she found the tools she needed to find her place on high.

It grated on Wanda Banks that, despite her charms and good looks, she couldn’t even land more than a menial job as a telemarketer. Of course that was before an interviewer told her that if she wanted a particular secretary job, she’d have to earn it. He made it abundantly clear that earning it involved his desk, and most definitely did not involve her clothes. Degraded but desperate, she consented and allowed the man to have his way with her. She tried to tell herself that she was just doing what was necessary to get by as a woman in the higher echelons of power. She even tried to tell herself to enjoy it. The problem was she was too good at convincing herself.

Jenyssa realized the power of sexuality. She even chastised herself for not seeing it before. Soon she not only had that secretary job, but several ventures underneath desks and midnight encounters later, found herself with a corner office, a pension, and a hefty paycheck that gave her the lifestyle she always wanted…sort of.

Her official title is Corporate Relations Manager. In short, she’s a corporate hooker. Wanda is on call for eight hours a day, occasionally even overtime, for the convenience of CEOs, corporate managers, and visiting investors. All she is required to do is continue being beautiful.

Not surprisingly, she has used her charms in the chimerical world, as well. After sleeping her way into a knighthood, she managed to make herself part of a diplomatic mission to the Duchy of Willows Heart. There she seduced King Meilge, who in turn granted her the title of countess. Of course, Meilge is no fool. He has made it quite clear that he expects to be the first to hear of any important information Jenyssa comes across in her evening escapades, especially those related to the courts of the Delta Crescent.

So, Jenyssa has planted herself in Countess Amaltheia's court. She has totally immersed herself in Fiona politics and social activity, where she acts as House Leanhaun's hands, and King Meilge's eyes.

One snag has gotten in the way of that plan, though. Jenyssa has become rather infatuated with one of Amaltheia’s honor guard, Sir Vashen Swiftblade. He treated her with such respect, and her charms completely bounced off of him…it made her want him all the more, and she’ll seduce, manipulate, and twist whoever she must to have him.

Merits & Flaws

Sex Appeal 3 pt. Merit Your sexiness and sensuality attracts lovers to you like moths to a flame. You are the irresistible center of attention at any gathering. All rolls where sexual attraction matters have the difficulty reduced by three. This Merit cannot be used to seduce someone lacking a baseline of sexual attraction to the character.
Addiction 1 pt. Flaw You suffer from an addiction to stimulants (cocaine is preferred, but most anything will do). If a fix cannot be obtained, the Storyteller can choose to give you a point of Nightmare or even an Imbalance. The addiction must be satiated weekly.

Birthrights & Frailty

glyph_kith_sidhe-arcadian.png
Unearthly Beauty Birthright Sidhe gain two additional dots of Presence, even if this brings that rating above 5. When they invoke the Wyrd (Changeling: The Dreaming, p. 259), this beauty becomes over-powering. If a sidhe invokes the Wyrd in the presence of a character, the player must roll Composure + Resolve (difficulty 8). If that roll fails, the character can only stare in awestruck wonder at the sidhe for one turn for each dot of the sidhe’s Presence.
Noble Bearing Birthright Sidhe carry a quiet dignity at all times. Cantrips designed to humiliate them or make them look foolish automatically fail (that does not prevent cantrips from harming them, of course, they just don’t lose their poise when it happens). Sidhe cannot botch Etiquette or Politics rolls.
Curse of Banality Frailty While the commoner kiths have learned to make their peace with the mortal world and live within it, the Arcadian sidhe still live with their minds and hearts in the Dreaming. As such, they are even more susceptible to Banality. Each point of Banality a sidhe would receive becomes two.

House Boon & Flaw

crest_house-leanhaun.png
House Leanhaun Boon The Muses are unnaturally charismatic. Leanhaun receive a free dot of Manipulation, even if this takes them above 5. A Muse can also focus the full force of her charms on one person; all Social rolls involving that individual are at –1 difficulty, as are any rolls to gather Glamour involving that person. A Leanhaun can only target one individual this way per scene.
House Leanhaun Flaw

House Leanhaun members age rapidly when denied access to fresh mortal Glamour. Each week a Leanhaun does not gain Glamour from a Dreamer, she effectively ages one year. Glamour gained from Reverie or Rapture reverses such aging at a rate of 1 year for every 5 points gained, while Glamour from Ravaging cancels one year per point gained, and Glamour from Rhapsody restores 5 years per point. Revelry does not restore youth at all. Note that a Muse cannot become younger than her actual age by infusion of Glamour; any “excess” rejuvenation is lost. This aging carries over to the mortal seeming, meaning Leanhaun must monitor their Glamour acquisition carefully to avoid arousing suspicion.

This unnatural aging toll is suspended for Leanhaun living in freeholds or the Dreaming, and does not apply to those who have yet to experience their Chrysalis or whose fae seemings are currently slumbering (such as from chimerical death or being permanently Undone). Of course, spending a lot of time in freeholds or the Dreaming holds problems of its own, but sometimes a desperate Leanhaun finds it necessary to stave off advancing age.
