Name: Azzurra De'leau, nickname Azure
District/Area: District 4
District/Area: District 4
If her long, golden blond hair doesn't catch your attention, then her alluring, icy blue eyes will. Azzurra is slender, yet muscular, thanks to long hard days fishing and swimming. She is utterly beautiful; gorgeous. Full lips, high cheek bones, perfect complexion. Her slightly pointed ears are Azzurra's favorite feature about herself, not to mention her slender hands and long fingers, "Piano Hands", they used to be called.
Azzurra has long, wavy locks that fall all the way down her back. She usually wears her hair down, but when swimming she likes to put it up in a high pony tail. Standing at 5'10", Azzurra is pretty tall for a girl. She is aware of her stunning looks, and despises how people gawk at her. She is very well one of the prettiest women in the District, and as a result must deal with men trailing her home after work, boys stoping dead in the street to watch her every move, and waiting for her to emerge from her home in the mornings.
Azzurra has tan, sun kissed skin that turns almost ivory when she's been away from the sun for too long. She appears almost porcelain to the eye, but moves very athletically, like a cat. She walks with confidence, always having her head held high. When Azzurra smiled, she lights up an entire room. However, most of the time her face is either plastered with a scowl or a distant look. She has a cold exterior, always appearing distant and mean to people.
Azzura doesn't really have much going on in the chest. A 32 B, but she's happy with her size. How could she run around and me active with anything bigger? In public, she is normally seen wearing a floral print dress, her favorite, or a black wetsuit with blue trimmings that extends to just about her knee-- her work clothes. Other times, Azzurra loves wearing a zip up hoodie and comfortable pants, wearing this mostly when she's at home. Around her neck rests a pendant of a fish, one that her mother gave her when she was just seven.
A scar, beginning just to the right of the base of her neck, extends all the way down her back, curving and coming to an end just below her shoulder blade. A parting gift from an encounter with a tiger shark.
Before the tragedy in her life, Azzurra was radiant, alive with laughter, happiness, and passion. She loved a good laugh, and joked all the time, especially with her older brother. She was sweet and compassionate, often delivering food to families who had little or none. She rarely though of the Capitol, the Peacekeepers were ignored. Azzurra hated watching the Games, but always managed to pull through and forget, at least for another year. Life was a blur for her, she loved, she smiled, the sun was always out and shining it seemed...
Then her family was lost, killed, and she was alone. Azzurra developed a deep, violent hatred of the Capitol as well as Peacekeepers. Her always smiling face became hidden behind a hazy, distant mask. Her feelings, and true personality went behind this mask as well. Quiet, silent, always thinking, a glance from Azzurra, with hatred in her eyes, would send even the largest man running. She rarely talks, only watches. And if one were to look directly into her eyes, they would see a wildness, and dangerous gleam, that appeared the daty she lost her family, and never left since.
Azzurra likes to be alone a lot, preferring to spend time with fish rather than people. Any who approach her soon find themselves quickly scurrying away. Suitors are shut down before they even have a chance: no one can brake her iron wall that leads to her thoughts and true self. She is strong now, physically and mentally, and never cries. She is strong now, she is like iron. Azzurra likes to dream, and most often, she dreams of a free world, dreams of a place she can escape to outside the grasp of Panem: District 13... She knows it's real, she can feel it, but she keeps her thoughts hidden. Azzurra is sneaky, quiet, stealthy, waiting until the right moment to struck back at the Capitol.
Azzura was born into one of the wealthier families in District 4. Her parents were fishermen, and would often take Azzurra and her elder brother, Flint, with them on their small boat. It was here that Azzurra learned how to use a spear and trident, as well as how to swim and dive. The family was unique in their work, and rich for a reason. Azzurra's father specialized in catching the... more dangerous fish, and taught his children how to hunt and kill sharks, spear larger sea life, and catch lobsters down below the surface of the sea. Life was good for Azzurra up until the age of seven, when her loving, much adored mother passed away after being attacked by a shark while fishing. Though this was a setback in her life, it was nothing compared to the tragedy that was years to come. Upon turning eleven, Azzurra found herself alone in the world, an orphan without even her big brother to protect her. While spending the day sick and bed, Azzurra's father and brother were caught fishing in a restricted zone, found guilty by the Peacekeepers, and brought to the town square, where they were flogged and then hung. Azzurra, hearing the commotion, came out of her home to see what the noise was from... and witnessed the entire thing.
Years later, living alone in a shack by the ocean, Azzurra manages to stay alive by continuing her fathers work of spearing sharks and other large fish, even mammals, such as dolphins. Still, her strange way of life keeps people away. Having developed a deep hatred of the Capitol, Azzurra has always wanted to get back at them, but doesn't know how. She just needs to find the right person, who will show her what to do...
In the mean time, Azzurra manages. Every morning when he wakes up, she remembers that one terrible day long ago. Then, it's time to begin the never ending cycle that started six years ago. Cook and eat one of the small fish she'd caught the day before for breakfast, then suit up and head to the ocean, where her father's boat awaits, hidden. Most often, Azzurra will spend the whole day in the water, searching for the fish that will secure her survival. Lugging them off of the boat after she's finished is no small, and most of the time Azzurra wishes she was stronger, or at least had someone who was stronger there to help her. Keeping the fish in a back room of her house, Azzurra does some of the butchering herself, in order to get the larger fish, such as sharks, to market without being too noticeable. She is quick when it comes to selling her catches, knowing that they will spoil quickly in the back room.
Azzurra is an expert when it comes to wielding both spear and trident. She's also not too bad with her fists...
