Bio: Tia was a great warrior and lead many battles. She was very savage and cruel. She rode on a great stag and was feared by many. She would use her moth dust to blind or paralyze her enemies. Sometimes she would drink their blood, consume them, or store eggs inside their corpses for her children to feed on when they hatched. She was a provider of a great number of warriors and had many children (thousands) with her husband. She loved to wear gowns and beautiful jewelry and had a great wardrobe and many treasures. Tia’s species would give birth to males in most instances. If a female was born, she was considered special. One day, one of Tia’s eggs hatched a female. She named the hatchling Luna and cherished her. She decided, for the sake of her daughter, she would never draw a sword or ride into battle again. She raised Luna with her husband, Feyrin. However, her decision to stop her malice would not end the wars and her infamy followed her home. Her home was attacked and she was left for dead. When she awoke, she found her daughter and husband had been killed. Distraught for days, she killed herself and was bonded with Molly, a newborn human child. Tia saw Molly as another chance at being a mother and raising a child. However, after losing Luna, she became overprotective of Molly, to the point where she became isolated from society and estranged from her family. Tia is very protective and manipulative in a “mother knows best” kind of way.
Pact doorway: A sealed door over Molly’s abdomen, below the navel. It is an ice crystal door with a brass password entry of a combination of four different letters/numbers. The password is LUNA. It is designed with moth wings, flowers, and stars
Mindspace: The inner mind world is a giant bed made of pillows, covered in frost, kittens made from snow, books, and stuffed animals. Surrounding it is trees with autumn leaves with light pouring in from a small glowing moon. Around those trees, however, are dead trees and the entire area is covered in a thick blanket of leaves. You cannot see the ground outside the pillow bed. The world outside it seems darker and foreboding, but not frightening. Everything is safe within the ring of autumn trees.
