ᴄᴀɴᴏɴ ᴘᴏɪɴᴛ:Epilogue

ᴘᴇʀsᴏɴᴀʟɪᴛʏ: On the surface, Anise is a bright, cheerful, and happy-go-lucky girl with a bit of a mischief in her. But in all actuality, her peppy attitude serves as a mask to cover up her much darker side. Forced to work under Grand Maestro Mohs to negotiate her parents’ debt instead of living life as a “normal” girl, Anise had no choice but to grow up much too quickly and take on an extraordinary amount of responsibility. It is because of this that she trained hard to became a Fon Master Guardian at the young age of eleven, becoming heavily involved in the military and parading as an adult for her family’s sake.

But underneath her heavy mask, Anise is a practical girl; she tries to think things through to the best of her ability to do what she thinks is good for the majority and, most importantly, for her parents' wellbeing. However, this is completely opposite of what she tends to portray. She curses and says threats that she intends to keep. If one gets on her bad side, he or she will get a glimpse of her cutthroat and ruthless attitude that she most likely learned on the streets. After all, she has the training of a soldier thanks to the Order of Lorelei. Anise is also quite cynical of others. For example, she makes several comments about distrusting Luke even after his promise change, and telling the party that they are much too trustworthy by siding with him. Yet she says this for two reasons: not only because she is wary of people, but because she is also duping the party as well. This eventually leads to a life-altering moment for her (see below), but it was also a defense mechanism, most likely brought about because of her parents’ financial problems. Her parents are good people, which causes them to be taken advantage of easily. It is also because of the debt that her parents have incurred that Anise has become a money grubber/gald digger and tries to marry rich, often being seen flirting with anyone she knows that might have a big bank account.

It should be noted that Anise is not out to take advantage of people for selfish reasons. She only does it for her family, as she is not one for injustice. After all, it is for that very reason that her parents have accrued a mass amount of debt.

The incident that changed her forever was when Anise had been blackmailed by Mohs. She had to lead her charge, Fon Master Ion, into a trap, or else her parents would be killed. Unfortunately, since she didn’t have enough trust in Luke and company, she followed his orders and led her assumed first love to his death. This changed her significantly, as she feels responsible for what happened to him and because she no longer had to lead a “double life” per se. With that out in the open, it was then that she decided to change her ways, becoming less focused on money and more on carrying on Ion’s vision. This is shown when she states to Jade Curtiss that she wants to become the first female Fon Master to help the Church and it’s people live in a world without the score.

After the Fon Master's death, Anise has gotten better with hiding behind her mask and is a bit more with others. Anise is also an information gatherer; she likes to hear all the gossip and know what’s going on 24/7.This is mainly out of habit from working as a mole in the group (once again, this task was forced on her since she had to work in order to pay off her parent's debt.) The puppeteer is also bright and witty; she was able to learn a complicated magic spell really quickly just by sneaking a glance in a spell casting dojo. Of course the down side to that is she can be manipulative and tricky if and when she wants to be – a real troll.


Anise was going through the normal work dredge since her adventures with everyone had ended. It seemed like all she ever dealt with was a mountain of endless paperwork and occasionally giving tours around Daath to people who still wanted to see the monuments. So far the Order seemed to be running okay without a Fon Master, the puppeteer knew that wouldn't be the case for long. She had written letters to everyone, expressing how much she missed them while hoping they were well. She didn't think it would happen but she was longing for their days of being together again. Like the family she never got to really have. 

She was writing a letter to Jade when it happened. Sure it was late, and the candle she had seemed to cast an almost hypnotizing light but she hadn't expected to fall asleep.

The crook in her neck was odd though...and was she on her back?

Brown eyes opened to see the bright morning sun greet her blindingly. With a shift of the wind, full branches covered her in patchy shade. She could hear birds and the rustle of leaves above while small creatures stayed scarce below. Sitting up fast, Anise winced in pain before looking around, a mixture of panic and confusion was quickly rising inside of her. How was it even possible for her to be...well wherever she was!?

Standing up, Anise dusted off bark and leaves that stuck to her off of her dress and talbard before picking her way carefully to the bottom of the roots. It wasn't hard to see that there was a small trail that lead through the woods. Thankfully she at least had Tokunaga on her so she could fight any sort of unsavory beasts that may try and attack. 

Soon, she was on her way.
