Name: Elia Donsown
Personality: Elia is truly one of a kind, and while most peple fail to look past her astounding wealth and good looks, dismissing her as just another privileged person who would not hesitate to step over the lower class to obtain success, they really could not be more wrong. Melia is a loud and carefree spirit. She cannot bear the thought of sitting herself down or spending a full day without going on an adventure inside the deep woods scattered within her home District.
She is an useful ally and a worthy oponnent to battle. She speaks in a warm, motherly tone and her smile radiates a bright prospect to those who find themselves in her company. Her attitude and way of coming across is flattering and pleasant, and never would she disdain or purposefully put down another person. She is very courageous and seems incapable of turning down a challenge. Elia strives to be brazen and capable, and is not one to shy away from fights or quit challenging herself in order to obtain improvement, despite being terrified of failure.
Despite having been gifted with extreme wealth, she is still a hard worker, and puts time and thought into tasks, rather than relying entirely on bribing people to do them for her. Moreover, Elia is a witty and genuine young woman. She is quite considerate towards others; always going out of her way to aid another in any way she may view as possible.
Her parents have spent countless of bills in order for her to possess the mindset and intelligence of a true genius, which is why more than often they will shun her whenever she underperforms in an assignment. She's very humble and modest, and unlike popular assumption, she actually hates to be in the spotlight. Another striking feature of Elia is how standoffish she is. She truly wishes to get along with her parents, but their smug nature that clashes with Elia's simplicity is more than enough to spark up fights between them.
Weapon(s): Elia was born in District Seven and raised in extreme proximity to its vast woods, so it is quite evident that she has obtained some skills throughout her life. As she was gifted with an astoundingly wealthy family, she never actually had to perform any manual labor that was too extreme, but she did enjoy helping her friend Jully, the daughter of two lumberjacks, to chop down trees with the use of several hacking tools, such as hatchets choppers, and of course, axes. As the years went by, Elia turned out to be more proficient with a chopper, which is why it became her main weapon in the arena. Elia is also quite skilled with axes, and her great aim allows her to throw one at a moving target with surprising precision.
:Note: Written in 1st Person
I was born in District Seven. It was a wasteland filled with poverty and hunger. Its masses were staggeringly thin, and those who managed to afford three meals a day were rare, if not nearly inexistent. I was one of those people. Unlike most citizens, me and my family did not find themselves in a situation of poverty. And no, we didn't just get by. The truth is, we must have been one of the most prestigious, wealthy families of the entire district.
Many envied us. I didn't blame them. What they weren't aware of, however, was that my life was nowhere near as good as they pictured it to be. Some may call me ingrateful for this, but it is the truth. My parents were Mikkel and Claire Donsown, the two prestigious owners of a lumber company that was considered by many to be the best of Panem.
The media perceived them as caring parents and successful workers, which was not completely true. When I was born, my mother did not even bother to give me a name. She was concerned that I would just end up eating up all of her time, and so, she had our housemaid breastfeed me and overall raise me. Her name was Kasha, and I considered her to be my mother. Luckily for my biological mother, Claire, Kasha had had a daughter around the same time my mother gave birth to me, so the two of us grew up together. The two of us, me and Jully, were inseparable. Judging by our appearances, we had nothing in common. Jully had long blonde hair and hypnotic hazel eyes, whereas my hair was strawberry blonde, nearly red, and my eyes were the deepest hue of brown imaginable.
But we did have a lot in common when it came down to personality. We were both naturally cheerful and outgoing, and would often go on what we would call "adventures", a daily event when we would wander the woods of the district searching for small animals and flowers to take home with us. I would usually get yelled at for bringing home a squirrel or any other animal, whereas Kasha would always let Jully keep whatever she found. In the end, Jully would keep all animals the two of us found. I admit that I was a little jealous of it at first, but when we became teenagers and visits to Jully's house became much more common, I was happy to see the little creatures we rescued much more frequently.
But whenever I would close the door of Jully's home behind me, I would return to my own home; to my parents. I never was good enough for them. I was always too short or didn't know how to do things properly, which somehow made them mad. Deep down, I suppose they thought whenever they had a child it would be a flawless carbon copy of themselves, and when mom gave birth to a child with a mind of her own, they just flipped.
My friendship wih Jully was kept a secret throughout my entire life. I knew my parents wouldn't approve of it, so I just figured I shouldn't ever let them know. They considered themselves and me to be superior to the majority of the district, and therefore were firm believers of the idea that we shouldn't be seen with anybody that wasn't as wealthy as we were.
As the years went by and mother got pregnant once more, my parents decided that they would need all help they could use in raising another child inside this broken household, which is why they had Jully and Kasha move in. They lived in one of our guest rooms, and my excitement for this sudden turn of events could not be explained in words.
Jully moving in made us much closer friends, but it also made it a lot more difficult to hide our friendship. Soon, my little brother, Prunus, was born. I vowed to look after him and don't let my parents influence him in any form. However, as soon as Prunus was born, my mother figured that she didn't have Kasha to breastfeed him this time. Taking note of this, I was terrified that she would fire Kasha and have her move out alongside Jully, but that did not happen, and she had another woman move into our basement. She had just given birth to a small girl, and already had a boy about my age, who moved in alongside her.
My mother wasn't too keen on the thought of living under the same roof as them, but our house was very big, and she rarely had to run into them. As the months went by, me and Julio became friends, and soon, our friendship blossomed into something bigger. Our love was clearly meant to be, but it was also dangerous. If my mom would be freaked out enough by me being best friends with Jully, she would rip off my head if she found out I had become intimate with Julio.
I brushed that thought aside for the longest time, and just let our relationship flow. Unlike my parents, Jully knew about my relationship with Julio. I had hoped she would be supportive of it, but it turned out that when she found out we were dating, she did not dare to look at me in the eye again. I was dumbfounded, but figured that if she wasn't approving of me and Julio being a couple, she wasn't that good of a friend anyways.
However, as most teenage relationships, me and Julio did not last. It wasn't long before I caught him cheating inside his bedroom, in my own home. I threw a hissy fit, throwing things around and yelling at him and the girl, who probably did not even know he was involved with someone else. In the end, I scared both of them away and his mother quit her job the following day, I felt bad for her, as she had nothing to do with her son being a jerk, but she couldn't afford to buy Julio his own place, which is why she was forced to quit.
The next day I was a weeping mess, and surprisingly, Jully was the one who comforted me. We watched movies together, and her presence just made me feel a lot better. At some point, I noticed her perfume. It was the one I got her for her birthday earlier that year. I liked that smell. I started wondering why I didn't get myself the same perfume, but I quickly brushed that thought aside, remembering that I didnt like it that much back when I bought it. However, months later, I found myself wanting to drown myself in a bottle of that perfume.
Then I looked at Jully. She was there for me when I needed her the most, and I appreciated that. Then I found myself staring at her blonde locks, and realizing how much I wanted them. Jully had been there during my entire life, but only then I realized I had feelings for her.
I wanted her long blonde hair.
I longed for her magic touch.
Maybe, just maybe, she would love me just as much. It could have been my heart playing a trick on me, of course. I had just broken up with Julio and longed for any form of affection, but my mind told me otherwise. It was much more than that. From the beggining, it was clear that my friendship with Jully was meant to be much more.
When I finally intertwined my lips with hers, she was not taken back. Sure, the look of pure shock on her eyes was evident, but soon she closed her eyelids, and we just stayed like that for what seemed like forever. We could have whined about how we had just ruined our friendship, as we had been friends since forever, after all, but we didn't. Because deep down, we both knew what was happening was meant to be.
We slept in the same bed that niht, My parents were away from the District for a business conference in the Capitol for about a week, so everything was perfect. Or so it appeared to be. When my parents came back, they told Kasha her services were no longer needed, and just like that, she was fired.
I still managed to meet up with Jully sometimes, but soon, my parents started to become suspiscious, so our encounters became much less frequent. I was willing to put a stop to that, but I never got the opportunity to do so. We hadn't seen each other for weeks when her name was drawn from the Reaping Bowl.
Then I saw her walking down the aisle in a pastel pink dress, with her blonde her flowing and her lips quivering in fear. Quite naturally, quite automatically in my disbelief, a scream forced itself out from the deepest bits of my being as I yelled out my volunteerism, therefore becoming a tribute in the Hunger Games.
(For Luke's Games -- As the war broke out, Elia locked herself inside her parents' mansion alongside several of the family's servants. Her parents never came home, either because they somehow managed to stay in the Capitol, believing it was safer and therefore leaving Elia to die in District 7, or they were simply killed trying to reach the District. Somehow, Elia's mansion remained untouched, most likely due to it being in a safe distance from the thick woods and factories that were targetted by Those Who Don't Exist. After a few weeks, Elia decided to leave the mansion for a day that would be spent searching for Jully, however she was spotted by Peacekeepers a few blocks away from her mansion and forced into the Hunger Games.)
