- Biography; Scarlett J Chen.
A mesmer's mask creates an image. I choose to look out from behind a Phantasm of Sorrow. I show the world a face lined by tragedy. Too bad you can't see behind the mask - to know whether I'm secretly laughing or not.
Trouble may follow, but I use my dignity to overcome it. I'm dignified even when up to my ears in mud. It's what makes people respect me. A serious, thoughtful demeanor is the route to success.
I grew up among the nobles, including my friend Lord Faren, who can trace their ancestry back to ancient kings. I received an excellent education, am well versed in courtly graces, and understand the responsibility that comes with privilege.
One of my biggest regrets is that I never recovered my sister's body. My sister was a Seraph. Centaurs killed her while she was out on patrol. They never recovered her body, and it has always bothered me.
Everyone said I was blessed by Lyssa when I was young. Lyssa wears many masks. She is the dual-faced goddess of beauty, water and illusion. She is the patron of the most attractive and graceful among us. Her blessings have touched me all my life.

She is one of the last living descendants of the Old-Imperial Saviour Dragon Mesmers from the time of Shiro's return. Her ancestor had seen Togo giving his life in an attempt to resque his half-brother, Emperor Kisu. After losing Togo to the hands of Shiro Tagachi, she then set out to stop Shiro once and for all. The current generation Anomi chose to live in memoriam of her, adapting her first name. She is an independent, beautiful woman, who has inherited the dress, gloves and a hat in a chest engraved with a golden dragon.
Her very presence amongst the other gentry remains questioned. She loves to be a rebel, albeit in style. Strangers feel seduced by her, under her command and she is definitely not an exclusive personality. She manipulates anyone she wants, whenever she wants it. That is, until she meets the man of her dreams.
Or so she has been told, all she knows that this dream keeps coming up in my mind. I have to figure out what this means...
