About Me
/ Briar Rose Van Hunt /

Her mother, Audrey, grew up loving the fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty". She loved it so much she named her newborn daughter after the heroine. That was how Briar Rose got her name.
Briar was born into the height of society. Rich food, a house full of servants, and parties each Friday night. Maids waited on her every need. It seemed like the perfect life. But alas it never was.
Her father dabbled in the more darker forms of magic. At night, Briar would hide her head underneath her pillow as the screams of her father's "patients" filled her ears. Over time, Briar grew immune to the screaming. But her mother never did.
That was how one night, a night free of screaming, a silent night, Briar crept down the grand staircase. The seven year old, her birthday in only a few weeks, was thirsty and was heading to the kitchen for a drink.
Instead she was met with the sight of her parents in the kitchen. It was clear they had both been arguing and an silence filled the room. And then her mother screeched, "I am done with this house!" She turned to leave. Her eyes widen at the sight of her daughter in the doorway and her mouth opened, "Briar-" A green light filled the room and the girl's mother collapsed on the floor. Briar had then fled silently upstairs, quiet tears rushing down her face. And so she lived with a monster she called her father until she received her letter.

Briar can be downright rude at times and at other times loyal to a fault. But she does show a deep love for people she cares about. Just don't get on her bad side.
She is almost never seen without her raven, Crow.
