Lonella is a human female, she had Black eyes, an eye tattoo(Black and closed) on her forehead, Dark brown hair, and a black shirt with a white bird logo on it, along with Denim pants with holes near the ankles and a pair of white joggers. On her arms just before her wrist is a blade shaped like a crescent moon, it's silver and is covered by this a leather glove that makes it look like it comes from the glove and not her arm. She's short, and on her back is a tear in her shirt revealing the jagged scar there. She's skinny, curved shaped body, she's 17 and pale in colour. [link]

When she transforms she is a brown/black creature which resembles a wolf. The wolf muzzle has a silver blade on the top of it curving toward the face in a crescent shape. The eyes are black and on the forehead is a tattoo of an eye with the eye open and red veins pulsing in it. Down the spine more of the crescent blades come out, and the tail is a wolfs tail at the start but ands in three of the blades coming out of the end of it. The ankles on the legs have a much thicker and more prominent blade coming out.
Lonella was part of a special group of people who lived in the wilderness. They called themselves the Eye. They created a special tattoo which would open when it was time for them to transform into their true form. Lonella was art of a small group about to go their initiation into becoming an Eye. She gazed to her parents, their eyes full of pride for their daughter. Yes, she had done it, had gone through the process of learning about her kind, the Sythers. They were a special race that could shape shift. They were creatures that had stayed in secret in the largest jungle on their planet. The humans lived on one side, the animals on the other. As they got their tattoo’s Lonella had a strange thought, what if this was not right? She discarded it as they got into the line to begin their first transformation. She could feel the buzzing coursing through the limbs, the head making her hear beat fast and faster until she fell onto all fours and gasped. Her bones cracked and she yelled in pain as the blades grew out of her bones. And then came the exhilaration, she could hear and see and breathe and smell. Everything was so clear, like she had taken her head out from underwater.
There were cheers and she glanced to her brethren to see her shape. Then they all let out a roar and their cries blended into one. But then something went wrong. Somehow another hunter had found them and began to attack. She ran, blinded by all the sound and confusion. She ran and ran from the thing catching up to her. It clawed her and she let out a cry as pain blossomed down her back, quickly to be replaced by bliss. The creature gave up and after a long time she slowed to a stop, realising she was at the edge of the trees. She curled into a ball and began to shift back, the bliss turning back into pain. She shuddered in the cold as her scar healed slowly and soon was just a red welt. She stood up and whimpered when she realised she hadn’t fully changed back into the human form. Her eyes tattoo was closed, but on her arms the Scythes they were named after were still there. She snuck into a house and stole some leather and made a strap to make it look like her blades came out of the strap and not her arm, and headed into the town.
Personality: Lonella is a deep person. She is normally not very talkative because she is used to being silent, but when you get her talking you will find she has some very interesting views on things. She is not a hard person to gain the trust of, but friendship and such is as hard as climbing Mount Everest. Sometimes you will find her quietly crying to herself over things she can’t change in the past. When she is happy, it is a quiet happy, and she loves simple things. She loves to watch the rain fall around her as she walked down the street. She had a secret longing for nature, and will instantly warm to someone who knows her loss. When angered she will uphold the vendetta for the lifetime of the person unless they make it worth her while to forgive them. She is in constant fear of loosing herself to her other form.
Abilities: Lonella can shift into a Syther, a wolf like creature with hyper sensibility to everything. Lonella can also open her eye tattoo, or her minds eye, and read minds, but the longer she has it open the more chance there is she will transform into a Syther, which she does not want.
She was chosen by the book. Her page is a black piece of A4 paper with the lines etched in.
