Bailey is the epitome of Irish beauty. Her smooth porcelain skin is beautifully complemented by her long fiery red hair. Her eyes are a crystal blue and always full of emotion. Bailey is clearly unaware of how beautiful she is and is often known to attribute the attention she gets from boys to the people around her instead of herself.

Bailey can be a really hard girl to get to know. She is most often shy and quite. She is a soft spoken girl, who instantly puts off an aura of a gentle nature that is kept reserved. When she is completely comfortable with the people surrounding her Bailey is sweet, kind and playful. She is a very individualistic person and some people call her a bit of a loner. She likes people but her shy nature can make it difficult to be around them. She really loves to make people happy though she can struggle with finding a way to do so. She finds her personal space very important to her and doesn’t handle its invasion very well.
As expected of a sphinx Bailey is very smart. She sees the world in riddles and puzzles but she si also very insecure. The trauma she has endured since her father’s death has taken its toll. She tends to hold her tongue and keep her options and thoughts to herself. She will speak up to the people she is closest too. In her classes she can be more confident because she knows she has the right answer but she doesn’t deal with her own options there. She is a keen observer of the world. Her quite nature allows her to notices almost everything around her and she can recall them in great detail.
Bailey can have the temper known to many female sphinxes but she tries to keep it in check. It reminds her of her mother and the idea of that still scares her. There is a side of Bailey that despite knowing she is safe now is still scared of everything around her. Some days are worst than others for her and she is far better than she used to be.
She is a very talented painter and is known to spend hours painting around campus. She isn’t really likely to admit how talented she is as she tends to be a harsh critic of her work and only some people get to see it. Her work alternates between very abstract art and highly realistic scenes. As a sphinx Bailey is also a prophet and all her art as a deeper meaning. Her abstract pieces are also puzzles of some sort that are solvable. If you can do so and give her the answer she will answer you a question or two. Her more realistic scenes are scenes of the future that she has seen. Most of the time people can’t place it until after the event as happened and Bailey isn’t likely to explain it.
What made you think u had the right?
Bailey’s life started out rather normal. She and her twin brother, Riley, were born in a small Irish town to two happy parents and an older brother. Her mother was never the most stable of women but her father’s love helped to keep her on the stable side. It was his death that sent her off the deep end. Bailey was only seven years old when it happened. Her father was murdered by a common street thug on his way to buy a few items for her oldest brother’s birthday. Even to the young Bailey it was clear life would never be the same.
At first the beatings were confined to Zephyr, as their mother initially blamed him for their father’s death, but they quickly spread to Riley and Bailey. It wasn’t long before someone noticed. When they did Bailey couldn’t quite understand what was happening. She didn’t get why they were moving so fast and why Zephyr wasn’t with them. Their pregnant mother didn’t explain much as she packed them up and took off.
Over the years after that things just got worse. Her mother’s psychosis deepened and the beatings were more regular and severe. She pulled her 3 children from all school, and began homeschooling them. She filled their heads with crazy ideas and horrible stories of Zephyr being raped and murdered in his foster home. Bailey quickly learned to keep her mouth shut though her clairvoyant visions told her a different story about her brother. She was naturally quiet and shy and she withdrew even more during the years with her mother. She tired her very best to protect her youngest brother but in the end it did no good.
Markus spoke out about his home situation to an adult he knew and despite the immediate investigation he was returned home. That night was when the family hit rock bottom. Their mother suggested to Riley, always the most susceptible to her brain washing, that the only way to save his family from the horrors of the foster home was to kill them. With that she left her gun on the kitchen table and left to go shopping. Riley listed to his mother and turned the gun on Bailey and Markus. He ignored their screams telling them that it would be alright in the end.
Markus was killed instantly when the bullet passed through his head but Bailey was lucky. The bullet passed through the right side of her body, barely missing her heart. As she lost consciousness she saw Riley turn the gun on himself, though the gun jammed up. Bailey woke in the hospital sever days later, with her brother Zephyr by her side.
The story of what happen soon boiled over and her mother was found guilty of Markus’s murder. Riley was found not guilty by reason of insanity and was sent to live in a home where he would get the help he really needed. Bailey was placed in the same foster home as Zephyr, with the understanding that she was under his custody. When she was well enough she joined him a Mystic Veil where her schooling flourished and she was given the chance to learn some social skills.
So many lives are broken
1. What is your earliest memory?
I think my earliest memory is one where my father is reading my brothers and me a bedtime story. It is so hazy though that I’m honestly not sure if I really remember it or if I have formed out of desperately wanting to remember my father.2. What is your favorite memory?
My first day at Mystic Veil would probably be my favorite memory. It was the first time in a very long time that I was around so many people my own age. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming; I just knew I was off to a brand new start in life.3. Tell us about the worst day of your life.
Though I don’t remember it very clearly the day my father was murdered is defiantly the worse day. Though our family has only gone downhill from that day it was that day that set it all in motion. I do not believe my life would have been the same had my father not died.4. Tell us about the best day of your life.
The best day of my life is along the same lines as my worse. It was a bittersweet day and I of course have had much better days in my life since but none of those good times could have come had this day not happened. It was the day I woke up in the hospital with Zephyr by my side. They told me that my mother was arrested and that I would no longer be in her custody. I knew it was a new start for me and I would finally be safe. It was bittersweet though because of Markus’s death. I wish he could have by free from our mother too.5. What is your favorite past time?
That’s easy. Painting. Ill paint for entertainment and I will also paint my visions in to puzzles.6. What is your biggest fear?
My mother. I never want to see her or even hear her voice again. Her mind doesn’t work on a normal level. Her ability to manipulate and control scare me as much as her predisposition for anger and violence.7. What is your favorite place?
I think my favorite place is the gardens in the spring. I love all the colors and flowers and the general feeling of peace.8. Who is the most important person/ biggest influene in your life?
Zephyr. In more ways than he knows. Now he is my rock and the person that I know I can lean on. Before that though I could take comfort in the visions I saw that everything my mother told me was wrong and that helped me resist they type of brainwashing that affected Reilly.9. Whats the the most important lesson you have learned so far?
Everything can change. I have learned that life is anything but static, and there will always come a time when it will change. And you can never tell if that change will be for the good or the worse.10. How would you like to be remembered?
I want to be remembered as a survivor. Never a victim. I know that whatever I may encounter I will survive it.
SHADOW :: Sometimes at night the shadows still scare me. My mother always kept the house so dark and there were shadows everywhere. I know that time is past but I can’t help but remember sometimes
TOUCH :: I don’t particularly liked to be touched. I’m not sure why but I would so prefer my private space.
PLACE :: I think places and surroundings in general can have a profound influence on your moods. I like places to be full of light and color. It makes me feel happy.
LIGHTS :: I love light. It makes the shadows go away. It doesn’t even matter to me if the light is natural or not. I just want to be surrounded by it.
How could you put us through it?
ZEPHYR VALDERRA :: OLDER BOTHER | In many ways Bailey’s world revolves around her older brother. She is very attached to him. She spent a large portion of her life believing he was dead and now that she knows he isn’t Zephyr is her safe haven. He is one of the few people that know of the trauma in her past. She prefers that is stays that way. Mostly because the less people that know the fewer questions there are to answer.
LOLA SINCLAIR :: A TRUE FREIND | Lola and Bailey are the pure idea of innocents sticking together. The girls are close and they spend a lot of time together. They often spend time painting together. Lola is another of the few that know of Bailey’s story since Zephyr told her after the trauma of the attacks on the school.
LYRIANA ALICORNA :: SWEET UNICORN | Of it is hard to hang around Lola and not hang around Lyri too. Bailey likes Lyri a lot and she loves to watch the little unicorn do all her beautiful makeup. It is not uncommon for all three girls to set up to paint together
MARIAH ABBOT :: SWEET ROOMMATE | Mariah is Bailey’s mystic veil roommate and the two of them get along very well. Bailey thinks nothing of Mariah being a dead vampire and just truly enjoys spending time with her friend.
KISTA MARINEAU :: ANOTHER INNONCENT | Bailey surrounds herself within innocent people. Maybe it just the type of person that she feels most comfortable with. Kiss is another one of Bailey’s close friends and she generally loves being among Kiss.
FAMILY :: YOU CAN'T CHOSE 'EM | Bailey’s feelings about her family are complicated and contradictory. She doesn’t remember her father much be she loves and misses him. She tries not to think about how different her life might have ben if he never died. Her feelings for her mother are very different. She is terrified of the woman and she never wishes to see her again. As for her remaining brothers. Bailey is still mourning Markus’s death in many ways. She still has trouble processing why he had to die. Bailey is conflicted when ti comes to Reilly. She loves her twin dearly and she tries not to blame him for what he did. It was their mother more than him. But she can’t help but be a little frightened of him still. Especially after one of her nightmares.
