Name :: <br> Dotta Parodi, but you can call her Dot. <p> Age :: <br> 14 Years <p> Gender :: <br> &female <p> Godly Parent :: <br> Skadi <p> Mortal Parent :: <br> Clay Parodi <p> Appearance :: <br> 5'3" with a moderate build. Her long, dark brown hair, falling to her waist, is straight with a single braid running down the entire length. In the braid, a strip of ribbon decorated with tiny, intricate, white metal snowflakes, each adorned with a crystal in the center, is woven in. Her skin is a slight peachy color. Her eyes are a sharp pale blue, darker flecks of gray standing out in the iris. Her ears are slightly pointed, with high eyebrows and a teardrop-shaped face. <p> Weapon :: <br> A bow and silver arrows <p> Powers :: <br> Control over ice and extreme bow skills <p> Status :: <br> Not really lookin' <p> History :: <br> Her father was hunting deep in the woods when a giant blizzard set in. The weather had promised warming weather and a calm day, but it was later decided as a freak of nature. Her father was knocked from his deerstand when a heavy branch fell from the tree above, weighted down by snow and ice. He was knocked unconscious and was quickly being buried under the fluries. Her mother, the goddess Skadi, was hunting as well, though for a rogue wolf. She saw the entire scene and finally decided to help the man. She brought him to an abandoned log cabin deep in the woods and nursed him back to health. When he awoke, he declared her the most beautiful women in the world; he fell for her, and she was unable to break his heart. And thus a child was born. She left him soon after, leaving him to care for their daughter. Dotta grew up loving the snow. She was an expert with a gun and bow by the age of 6. At the age of 11, her father died in a house fire and she fled from the orphanages, eventually coming to camp. <p> Other :: <br> She has a Scottish accent
