Name: Sovella <p>Gender: I'm female. <p>Age: 11<p>Personity: Not as Loki-ish as she should be, but there's plenty of mischief. Meer her to find out.<p> Godly Parent: Loki <p> Background: A long story for another century. She also does not know any Norse mythology. <p> Appearance: 5'2, brown eyes, brown hair. As average as it gets.Totally nothing that you would look for to find a demigod. She doesn't even have dyslexia. <p>Relationship Status: Totally single and always has been. <p> Favorite Weapons: Something she calls a striker. He used to play baseball, so she designed a metal ball the size and weight of a baseball that has spikes that pop out at the push of a button. One she has on a long fishing line and the rest return to her by remote control from the first one. She has a set of twelve. She also likes water (I know, right?) and is a huge fan of archery. Her next favorite is a double-bladed throwing and fighting knife. <p>Other: Ask.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Res three, correction: mom is Skadi. She has two pet cats named Thia and Thor (their names irl, Thia was named Freya, but we kept forgetting and calling her Thia.) Thia is tortoiseshell, and Thor is an orange and white domestic short hair.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Dotta Parodi, but you can call her Dot.
Godly Parent ::
Mortal Parent ::
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.
A bow and silver arrows
Control over ice and extreme bow skills
Not really lookin'
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.
She has a Scottish accent
