Name: Isera Welyn
Age: 20
Gender/pronouns: female, she/her
Sexuality: bisexual
Species: dragon shifter, light
Occupation: young heiress to her father’s coffee shop company, assistant manager
Appearance: Isera is about 5’4” tall with a plump, curvy body. Her skin is a warm, honey brown color with olive undertones, and her face is round, with full cheeks and a softly curved nose. Her lips are full and always in a vague smirk, and her large amber eyes have curved slits for pupils, giving her this catlike look. Her hair is buzzed short on one side, and the other side is white in color, a stylish mop of short dreadlocks that sometimes covers the right side of her face. She wears a lot of jewelry, and her clothing style would likely be considered business casual. In her dragon form, she’s about 11 feet in length and 6 feet in height. Her scale and eye colors are consistent with her human form, and there are little shocks of white feathers on her head, her shoulders, around her hips, and at the tips of her wings and tail. She also has a crown of horns on her head and a short muzzle. Her wings are shaped similarly to a bat’s.
Powers?: her skin can glow in the dark, she can conjure and manipulate existing light, and her light is strong enough to blind a person. And, as her species name implies, she can shift between human and dragon forms. In her dragon form, she can breathe fire.
Personality: at her most basic, Isera is the snobby rich kid. She was born privileged and a little spoiled, and she tends to take that fact for granted. She’s demanding and bossy, and tends to prioritize her wants over others’. However, she’s also has a cheerful, happy disposition, in addition charismatic and intelligent, to the point of being manipulative at times. Her parents raised her to be picture-perfect, to create a mask of put togetherness and poise, and she uses that mask to hide her insecurities and doubts. Often she’s motivated by self preservation, food, or fancy clothing.
Likes/dislikes: good food, fancy clothes, being taken seriously, people doing as they’re told/ not getting her way, being in general discomfort, defiance unless she’s the one doing it, people treating her as a joke
Backstory: Isera was raised in a wealthy family, the daughter of a businessman who owned the coffee shop company Light in a Cup. Though her parents were doting and indulged her as a young child, they also became more strict as she got older. At first they spoiled her often, getting her whatever she wished for. But then, when they started setting more expectations and responsibilities onto her, they used her greed as a way to get her to behave; promising her jewelry or shopping money if she cleaned her room, for example. Later these responsibilities would extend to such things as familiarizing herself with all the Light in a Cup locations and policies.
In school, she was popular. Between her late middle and early high school years, she was a bully. For as many friends she had, she had just as many enemies. This, along with going through puberty, heightened her need for material objects and comforts, as this was a time where her insecurities were most pronounced. Later in high school though, the expectations of her parents were higher than ever, and Isera had to shed her involvement and ideas about high school politics. She realized how immature it all was compared to what she would be dealing with later in life, and stopped bothering with it. She was still popular though, and there was still drama.
Once she graduated, her parents assigned her to be an assistant manager at one of their locations in order to give her experience in the work force. It was at this point Isera’s “performance” as a daughter began to slip, because she was so tired of being told what to do all the time and having her life all planned out. She became whiny and complaining, unwilling to do work. Her parents decided to keep her as an assistant manager as punishment, never allowing her to move up until she behaved. She’s still learning how to balance her job, college, and her personal life.
Other: she has a major in business and a minor in social media analytics

Backstory: a Nāga Human, she has the ability to shift from her human form to her Nāga form, where the lower half of her body is the tail of a Burmese Python, her eyes suddenly turned beaded and black, much like a snakes. She was born to a Nāga mother, and a human father, in the finding of what Donelle and her mother could do and their Nāga blood, Donelle's father left her mother in eyes that his family had been switched out with demons.
