The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Overall Appearance: Fenna is as attractive as Skaa generally get. Voluptuous, and graceful.

Special Skills: She has been allowed no education or trades. She can cook, clean, and wash clothes.
Strengths: Fenna has no particular strengths, save perhaps her sense of taste. She is an excellent cook, and can turn the blandest ingredients into something extraordinary.
Weaknesses: Fenna is a slave. She is also barren.

In truth, Fenna is less oppressed by her current mistress than most of the skaa living at keep Casuana. Her eyes are most often downcast.

She believes she is going crazy, because she can sometimes see herself as if in the mirror. Th image is fleeting, and not an exact reflection, but it has persistently followed her since the first time Lord Erikeller knew her.

She is barren, and has a bit of an inferiority complex because of it. She never takes the lead in any situation. Even in the kitchens, when she wants to make a dish taste divine, she sneaks the requisite spices into the pot. She does not draw attention to herself, for fear of she knows not what. Her actions are becoming more erratic, as she believes she is going insane.

Perhaps it is this feeling of impending insanity that led her to befriend two skaa allomancers intending to start an insurgence in the kitchen. She has no hope that they will succeed, however.

Fenna was born into service at House Casuana. She was remarked by lord Raguel Erikeller as a child, and was sent to his bedchambers at the age of twelve. The experience was traumatic, and she snapped as an Auger. Soon, Lord Erikeller was calling on her every other night, and occasionally, the late Lady Erikeller would join them. She learned to be submissive. She learned not to speak in the presence of lords. She learned discretion. In short, she learned to be a nobleman's whore.

In her fleeting visions, she sees herself alternately beaten senseless and beautifully honored. She can't make them go away. They scare her.

When she is not called upon by the captain of Lady Casuana's guard she retreats to the kitchens. She hides in the kitchens often, because she notices lesser members of house Casuana eyeing her. She does not want to serve any other masters in that particular manner.

She joined a small insurgence group, but they have, as of yet, done nothing.

Roleplay Sample
Fenna lifted the spoon to her mouth. The flavors danced against her tongue. The sausage boasted of fennel and oregano, the tomatoes were adequetly salted. The basil shone through the rest and made the whole taste clean. It was perfect. She removed the saucepan from the range and applied it liberally to the steaming plates of noodles.

A delicacy from the crescent dominace, Fenna's new mistress was sure to appreciate it. She placed brown sprigs of parsley to the side as a garnish. Two pieces of toast rubbed with garlic and oil followed, and were topped with brown chives.

A dish fit for the Lord Ruler himself.

She covered the steaming plates and pushed the cart to the dumbwaiter. A strange contraption, that. Lord Lucius did not like to have more than a few attendees at mealtimes and had designed and constructed the device. She shut the door of the dumbwaiter and pulled the rope, slowly lifting it three floors.

She was glad of the dumbwaiter, for it gave her the option to remain forever in the kitchen, away from dark eyes with dark thoughts behind them.

She shivered, and pushed the cart into the bakery.

"Hurry up, girl. Lady Casuana will be wanting her dessert," The robust chief cook called, chins waggling. "Do you want to be beaten when the ice melts? Do you have any idea how much it cost to ship this from the mountains? How difficult it was to keep it free of ash?"

Fenna nodded. That was the only sensible thing to do. Monta never stopped a lecture before she was finished, however.

"This flavored ice is the perfect complement to the meal, and my lady Casuana will not go wanting because you decided you'd rather stand and sigh all day!"

Fenna nodded.

"Well? Move!" Monta pronounced.

Fenna moved, nearly running to the mortar of chipped ice, and began to pour the syrup as she cruched the ice with a pestle. Soon, it was smooth, but it wasn't creamy enough. She looked over her shoulder, but Monta was nowhere in sight. good.

She ran to the icebox and removed some heavy creme and milk.
This, this, would be a meal fit for the Lord Ruler.

Okay, better now that Lucius is out of the application. Accepted.
