Shape your Future
Garnet is generally out going and cheerful. She’s a trustworthy person, and will often fight to defend something or someone, or to prove a point. She mostly has a small smile worn most of the time and has no issue when it comes to engaging in friendly conversation with a stranger. This can often lead to some distraction though, when she stops mid-track on the job to speak when someone wants to talk with her (mostly shop keepers or young children). Garnet is extremely dedicated to those she holds dear, and will make sure that they will be safe no matter what.
Though headstrong and open minded, she can be quite arrogant. She often believes that she can take on anything or anyone, when clearly she cannot. As a reckless tomboy, she engages in street brawls if her opponent challenges her; even if they don’t she’s usually the one doing the challenging anyways. She can also be arrogant and foolhardy, due to her inability to read the atmosphere properly. Because of her ignorance, she misjudges situations frequently and once was even close to death until she realized that living is more important than her ego.
Garnet was the middle child in a common family, spending her childhood normally. She was younger than her eldest brother Kurtis by four years and older than her youngest brother Callo by ten. Her father Walter worked in the Daein army as a Marksman, but died from a sickness when she was but fourteen. Her family had lost a loved one, and unfortunately the only breadwinner. To make money for his family, Kurtis decided to make use of his skills with his bow, because he was trained by Walter since he was a boy. However, since there were essentially no opportunities to utilize his only significant skill in their town, he turned to the underground by becoming an assassin immediately after his father’s death. Unfortunately, Kurtis had been caught before an attempt by an important noble three years later, and had been captured and executed publicly.
Now at seventeen years old, Garnet had only her grieving mother and young brother left as family. Everyone knowing her as the sister of the dead assassin, no one would take her in for a job, except for certain nobles. She chose the life of a privateer, travelling around the country and for extra payment, around the continent and back, thieving instead of killing for her clients. But seeing as the job was a high offence against the laws of Daein, her name as Garnet was used exclusively for her family and mothers closest friends. She changed her public name to Vesper in order to protect her remaining family if she was caught the same way as her older brother.
Garnet couldn't live in the same house as her family anymore. As a privateer, connection to her mother and brother was almost completely cut off to defend them form her reputation, and they had to live by the rule that the girl Garnet had run away from home years ago.

“The name’s Vesper. Yeah…”
“Don’t worry about it anymore, okay? I’ll visit again soon, I promise.”
“That’s- I’m sorry, is that all I’m getting for my hard work?”
Friend or Foe
Garnet traverses the country and even the continent for good people and bad, so she’s mostly in the middle. Though she tries to remain honest at all costs, she considers herself a friend and good person.
Garnet walked through the streets, the moonlight and shops the only things making her path home visible. In her hand was a small pouch, halfway full with coins. She grew more excited to see her mother and brother for the first time in months and quickened her pace. The air always felt clear and cool on days like this.
She knocked on the door of her old home, and it flung open as soon as she made contact to the wood with her fist. “Garnet! You’re back! Did you bring me any treats?” Callo held her tightly in his arms as he rained question upon question on her. “Any candy? Are you hungry? Mum cooked some meat!” Garnet laughed and peeled her brother off of her.
“No treats this time, but a lot of money to buy some!” Callo grinned and pulled her inside. He continued to babble, but it sounded more like a sweet song to her. She chuckled at her sibling, and she looked up from her excitable brother to find another she had wanted to see. Velinia had tears in her eyes as she embraced her.
“My baby, welcome home!”
