Visible Merits and Traits: Path, Eerie Presence (deathly pale skin), cat eyes
Description: Audra is a little over five and a half feet in height, with blonde hair, cat-slit eyes, and a deathly pale white complexion. Appearing to be somewhere in her mid-20s, she has a slender build and usually wears jeans, t-shirts or shirts, 'natural' makeup, and minimal jewellery. Around mortals, she usually also wears tinted glasses. A wicked sense of humour lurks behind her quiet and serious demeanour, and she seldom seems rattled by anything. When she does show anger, however, hell hath no fury.
