Élisabeth Geneviève Bellerose
Élisabeth stands at a height of 5'8". She is of elegance and grace, as she has a curvy and slender physique. Her dark brown skin glows with radiance and beauty, evenly toned, baring a single birthmark on the lower left part of her back. Her straightened hair is typically pulled back in a tight pony-tail, its length reaching down to her lower back. The color is nearly black, but one can see a slight tinge of brown if looking close enough. Her eyes are a rich brown color, seemingly full of kindness and understanding. Its color shifts from golden to almost black depending on the lighting, which is expected. Her lips are full and luscious. Her clothing is of a variety, and the type depends on the occasion. Often times, she is found wearing old-fashioned clothing, typically dresses or blouses. Though out in the modern world, she usually wears modern garb, in order not to stand out in the crowd.
Élisabeth is kind and sweet, emanating warmth and comfort to those around her whenever the need is there. Many find she is the person to go to if they're in need of someone to listen, for she's a great listener. She knows how to feel empathy and show sympathy, she also understands what she cannot understand, and therefore she tries to help in whatever way she can. She's a loving individual, and she is also playful. She adores playing with children as well as messing around with those she is close to.
However, though she may seem like a wonderfully innocent woman, she is most certainly not entirely of good nature. She is devious, and albeit she usually does it with good intentions, there are times she simply wishes to get her way. Thus, she uses tricks up her sleeve in order to do just that. With this also comes her knowledgeable deceit, manipulation. She does not manipulate people she is close to, she only does this when it is evidently needed towards others who she needs information from, or whatever the case may be.
Despite Élisabeth's strength and independence, she holds a fear for men and anger. She becomes quite uncomfortable when somebody is in a rage, especially if screaming and throwing objects comes with it. It's a fear she tries her best to overcome, but with time, it appears to only worsen. Though, she is not one to be easily silenced. She tries to use her words to calm somebody who is angry; sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. She will try to avoid the situation entirely most times.
As stated, she is not easily silenced. This can often delve Élisabeth into unwanted situations, but she is also stubborn. She's not one to give up or backdown from speaking her mind. By doing this, she rids herself from some fear, deviating it elsewhere. She is also constantly standing up for herself and others.
Oddly enough, Élisabeth is a hopeless romantic, but she's afraid of ending up hurt; as she has been hurt multiple times. She never seems to go for the right man, and she often wonders maybe she's not meant to find her true love.

Described in her personality (i.e. fear of men, lack of trust, independent, strong, stubborn, etcetera).
Élisabeth was born a slave in the country of France. Her parents were both killed for having an affair. Her father was killed as soon as her mother was found pregnant; and after her mother gave birth to Élisabeth, she was killed by the man who abused and raped her multiple times throughout the years she had been a slave.
For as long as Élisabeth could remember, she did slave work and was under the care of a noble family. She was given their surname, Bellerose, for it would be easiest to keep her in record that way. Why she kept such a putrid name, to this day? She wasn't too sure herself... perhaps she kept it due to the simple fact that it was her birth name.
It wasn't until Élisabeth was fifteen that slavery was abolished in France. However, that didn't stop illegal slavery. The Bellerose family continued using her and other slaves; she was abused and sexually assaulted countless times by the man of the nobility, who's name was Basille. He certainly was far from the meaning of his given name.
One day, however, at the age of twenty-one, Élisabeth was met by a man with immense beauty. She fell head over heals in love with him, and six months of having an affair with him... he said that she could leave the life as a slave, and runaway with him to a place free from hardship and the like. Of course, she accepted and together they ran away. The night they left was the night Élisabeth's life changed forever. They crossed into another country from France, and spent the night in a cabin together. It was their first entire night together, and on Élisabeth's mind was naught but happy thoughts. Until, as they were laying together, kissing, he sunk his teeth into her neck.
The pain was great, and it seemed to last forever, before she was finally swept away into darkness. When she awoke, she was in a darkly lit room; two mere flames were the only light source. The man who she fell in love with wasn't who she thought he was... in more ways than one. He was cruel, he never loved her and only wanted to drink her blood; six months of toying with her, and that's all he wanted from her. He took her in as his own personal slave, and it wasn't until another twenty years later, that he finally freed her. He apparently grew bored of Élisabeth and wanted a fresh victim. And although she was thankful to finally have been set free, she was still in so much pain, to have been tricked like that.
Over the next couple decades, Élisabeth was alone and found herself in the arms of a couple different men. Who all in the end, ended up harming her; whether it was physically or emotionally... and in her pain, she either turned them, or killed them. She figured it was what they deserved for hurting her.
After those decades, Élisabeth found herself at the doors of the Covenant. She finally found people to call family, at long last.
