Cork Town, Arciel
Run Down Apartment in Pine Town, Arciel
Tell us a little about yourself. How would you describe yourself?
A soft giggle fills the interview room, and a girl moved to push a fist to her mouth to stiffle her giggles, "Sorry- sorry! I'm just a lil' nervous, this sort of thing is intimidating!" she takes a few seconds to regain control of her breathing before moving her hand away from her face, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear and flashing the interviewer a sweet smile. "I'm Tiara... Rose-Tremaine, but just Tiara Rose is fine! And i've lived here in Arciel my whole life~"
She sits there for another moment in thought, raising a finger to her lips. "And... hmm..." her eyes flick up to the interviewer and she lets out another string of giggles again, having to clench her hand back into a fist. "I-If you keep looking at me so intently I won't be able to take this seriously- a-aha, sorry..." ahead shake where she closes her eyes, counting down... and then...
"If you can't tell i'm a little giggly, I guess that describes me well enough, annd... I love sweets, and cute toys- ohhh and jukebox musicals, a little guilty pleasure for sure!" She sticks out her tongue at the interviewer, before seeming to realize the interviewer isn't exactly her friend, or something close to her, and she quickly deflates a little in her seat.
"Describing myself is hard.. a...aha..." Shr shrugs her shoulders now, holding a hand to her cheek- in thought a soft laugh almost breaths through and she has to snort to hold herself back- there's so much she can't tell the interviewer! "I'd love to say i'm a go-getter, I take things in stride and just... wooosh, run!" She tilts her head now, smile still ever present, "And i've got a terrible sense of humour, try me!"
The interviewer is scared- how can this girl be so... energetic and chipper so early in the morning?
Why are you interested in the class you've chosen?
A hum leaves Tiara's lips as she leans onto the interview desk... why is she interested in this class? Her eyes float around the room for a minute before she sits up in the chair she's in and shrugs half-heartedly, "Welll... I don't really need to study to be a chef, and i've always loved sweets." An awkward giggle leaves her lips, like there's more that she wants to say but can't really find the words for her thoughts. "I just chose the easiest career path to get into- one that won't need my parents money to back me!"
Her hands brush through her hair once before she blinks at the interviewer, who seemed a little let-down by her answer. "The secret to getting in without studying is starting out as a dishwasher, i've been one... two years now- but soon enough i'll be able to be a kitchen hand, i'm sure of it!" Her hands freeze in her hair and she lets out a soft laugh, attempting to assure herself more than the interviewer. "Absolutely certain!"
Why are you interested in training in Arciel? Why not another region?
Tiara pauses for a moment, blinking dumbly at the interviewer before quickly blurting out "I'm not just gonna up and leave my parents, they need me!" There's a pause, and then the interviewer stares at her in alarm for a moment. Tiara seems just as surprised and averts her gaze, hands folding into her lap as she lets out an awkward chuckle to ease the tension she'd built up. "I mean...They're lonely people, and i'd hate to think of how they'd act if I left them too, even if they've never explicitly stated that they need me... but..."
Her eyes clicked back to the interviewers and she smiled, righting herself in the chair, "I'd like to think that one day they will, and that when that time comes i'll be here in Arciel, waiting for them rather then off in like... Alola unable to contact them."
There was an uncertainty to her smile, but she attempted to play it off with another laugh that didn't quite fit, "You, uh, understand, right?" she waited a few beats as the interview bit their lip and nodded, before she relaxed slightly. "Good, good..." What do you consider your best attributes? They can be physical, mental, social, or anything else.
Her best attributes? Tiara's hands move up from her lap to relax on the table, a cheeky grin settling on her features. "I'm fairly good at not focusing on the negatives of any given situation, actually!" She let out a laugh, before moving to raise a finger in the air, "Like if an old lady pushes in-front of my at the checkout line, I won't say anything because I can use it as an excuse for why i'm late, who would wanna tell an old lady she's in the wrong?"
She waggles her finger for a moment at the interviewer before lowering it back to the table, "Or... if there's a funeral, you think of how happy the person is up above that we're celebrating their life, and that they haven't been forgotten!" She pushes her lips together for a brief moment, talking about a funeral as a pretty morbid topic so she should probably lighten her words up a bit!
"Sooo yeah, optimism! That's my best attribute!"
What do you consider your worst attributes? Be honest, now!
Tiara doesn't seem too bothered by this answer, in-fact, her answer seems to come much too easily. "Easy! How I look is probably my worst attribute." It was said so matter-of-fact that the interviewer had to ask again, looking stunned. Tiara giggles and gently pushed a strand of hair from her eyes. "Aha... I'm not self conscious or anything- like- it's not that I don't like how I look or that i'm ugly- i'd say i'm fairly average, actually!"
Another laugh and she crosses one leg over the other, twirling a strand of hair around her finger, "How I look tends to remind people of... unpleasant memories- I can't really look of myself without err... thinking of my brother."
There's another pause, and she sends the interviewer a tight lipped smile. They'd pry but... they could save that for later questions.
What was your childhood like? How was school?
A hand rests on Tiara's cheek as she scratches slightly, "Mum and dad are kinda rich- they own their own vineyard, The Rose Estate?" She nods to herself again and rests her chin in her palm, "So times were always easy- I have...had... I had a twin, actually! Princeton. We were thick as thieves, little troublemakers!"
She laughed again, relaxing against the chair and letting out a sigh, "We smashed half the vineyards glass stock in the storage when playing house, dad was so peeved that it's been out of bounds ever since!" Her hands enthuse her words, a wave in the air here, air quotes there...
"Princeton adored sports, he was mummas boy, really into baseball, star of the Cork Town Dragon's. In comparison I was just kinda... a bit bland- I loved playing with dollies though, and creating little clay sweets- i'd always bring Princeton a play-dough cupcake after a big game and he'd give me the biggest hug!"
She moved to outstretch her hands slightly, a massive grin on her face- she seems frozen for a moment though, and then her fingers twitch. "...A really big hug." she draws her hands inwards now, smile dialling back slightly, "But Princeton passed away a little after our twelfth birthday- in his sleep thankfully! But it..." Her smile falls short and she doesn't bother trying to keep it up, instead averting her gaze and forcing out an uncomfortable laugh, "It changed our family a lot, is what i'm trying to say."
The interviewer seems shocked, eyes wide, they hadn't mean to pry into something so sensitive! They move to open their mouth to announce the next question but Tia keeps speaking. "My parents saw my brother everytime they saw me, so I spent a lot of my teens trying to ease their pain by spending a lot of time at school- I wasn't very popular, but was kinda the girl everybody pitied- i'd get smiles in the hallway and stuff but... nobodies really stuck it out with me- which I get!"
Another very forced laugh followed, "I wanted to be a teacher before Princeton...y'know... but once he passed I tried to lighten life for my parents as much as possible..."
A shrug, "So, I buy a cheap house, get a job that I don't need any prior experience for and a adopt a mon to help me brave the wilds- which means ultimately I save them money and having to see me everyday!" She'd... probably explained much more than the question asked, and the Interviewer smiles awkwardly at her. "So... that's my childhood!"
How is your relationship with your family?
Tiara's fingers tap against the table as she takes a deep breath, "Well..." She trails off, letting her first word hang in the air for a moment as she attempts to formulate the right words to say- however quickly breaks off the silence with a snort that she attempts to cover up, "A-Arceus- you'd think you'd ask more sensitive questions after I just reveal my bros dead, but you just went right for the family~" She shakes her head a few times, "I'm not upset I promise- I just- laughing helps!"
She shifts now, attempting to smile at the interviewer to ease the awkwardness, "It's tense. They still haven't gotten over Prince so when they look at me it's like... seeing what they've lost." She clicks her tongue and runs a hand through her hair, "But they love me, I know they do. They're just... kinda awkward, they don't know how to act around me- and oh, oh I know i'm at fault too!"
She lets her hand fall back to her lap, "Since i've distanced myself to give them some space and all, it's just.. a weird dynamic, but we all love each other very much- we just haven't relearned how to show it is all."
A sigh now, "...But it's almost been ten years- we can't keep dodging around the obvious forever..."
What do you like to do for fun?
A welcome subject change! Tiara giggled and brings a hand up to gently poke at her cheek, mimicking a thinking pose. "As I said earlier I looove jukebox musicals, they're just so cute and catchy? I usually have myself a movie night with Pretzel every Tuesday after work just to binge them!" She points to the interviewer now, twisting her hand slightly, "And karaoke Fridays are always jukebox night, so you can bet i'm there with all the miners and their wives- i'm a damn terrible singer but its a bunch of fun!"
Her hand gently falls back and she grins, "I also enjoy making sweets, and just being around people- working is fun too! It's such a fun environment, they all respect me even if I am just a dishwasher." The interviewer nods as the tension from the earlier questions seemingly dissipate.
What are your feelings on romance?
Her cheeks redden slightly and she pushes a fist to her mouth, a mumble of incoherant words leaving her lips. The interviewer blinks at her and she instead moved to place her hands over her burning cheeks, "Uh..." A very uncomfortable string of giggles leave her lips and she averts her gaze, "...To be honest, i'm not sure- is that embaressing to say?"
She uncrosses her legs and leaves forward now, "Like... when I was little mum used to pair me off with the neighbours sons and say we were such a good match, and all my friends would fawn over a cute boy or something- i've just... never really been sure..." She tucks a strand of hair behind her ear and brings her eyes back to the interviewer. "That's not weird, right? Being twenty-one and not knowing what you're into, the type of person you like- hell even the gender?"
The interviewer assures her it's okay and the girl smiles a little bigger, "Thank Arceus. I guess i'll know when I know, hm?"
What are your goals for the future? Short-term and long-term.
Tiara shrugs, eyes looking into the distance for a moment, "For now I just wanna become... totally self-sufficient, not have to rely on my parents and put further strain on them, which is why i'm living in a cheap apartment away from them and living off my job!" Eyes move back towards the person before her and she gives a lopsided grin, "And eventually I hope in the future me and my parents can have a proper relationship- be able to speak to each other and interact without it being awkward, or without them tearing up..."
If you could be a Pokemon, what species or typing would you choose and why?
Tia seems surprised by this question and sits and ponders a moment, "My... first thought would be cubone? They're dealing with loss in their own way with their mummas skull and all..." She chuckles slightly, "But... I don't think i'm very strong or defensive like a Cubone..."
Her eyes roam the room once more as she thinks, "Maybe... a Swirlix?I mean they live off sweets and I can't go a day without them either- i'll lock that in!" She brings her eyes back to the interviewer and nods her head at her answer. The interviewer just smiles at her pitifully.
What do Pokemon mean to you?
Tiara brings a finger back to her lip and prods at her bottom one slightly, "They weren't involved much in my life when I was a kid- but Prince loved em, he was actually kinda infatuated with ice types? Thought they were the coolest..."
She brings her hand back and scrunches her nose in confusion, "It was kinda a miracle that I got Prince, my Swinub. Aparrently he'd been at the adoption centre a long while, and he was an ice type so i'm like yep, gonna take this cutie, aha!"
Another laugh leaves her lips, "And through him i've been able to discover that pokemon are actually kinda a blessing, he loves watchin' jukebox musicals too, and cries along with me durin' them!"
A big grin now, "So now i'd probably be betraying his trust if I said pokemon weren't great, they can help you a bunch without even realizing they're making your whole world just a little less lonely."
Anything else you'd like to tell us about before you go?
Tiara's mouth opens, as if she's going to say something, however she very quickly closes it and shakes her head, a soft sweep of air escaping her nose in a silent chuckle. "Nope. Think you've gotten just about everything you need to know about me." she flashes the interviewer a toothy grin, brushing her fringe away from her eyes before pushing out of her chair, "Not a peep to anybody, okay? I don't wanna be the local sob story or anything."
5'6" / 168cm
Average, slightly stocky.
Tiara's about average in every category imaginable. She has thick red hair that she often styles up in some sort of ponytail/pigtail/half-up look to keep it out of her face- and when it's loose she'll probably have it pinned out of her face with some ridiculous pastel number.
She has a small nose and huge, doll-like eyes. Their colour is so clear and blue that often it can look like she's staring straight through you rather than at you. Here eyebrows are small yet thick, and if she's going to complain about anything it's probably how overpriced eyebrow waxing is in Pine.
She has a nose piercing that she often has to hide due to work, and so usually she just has a clear stud in. Just behind an ear she has a tattoo of 2/11/10 which is the day her brother passed, in block letters. Other than that, she has no other piercings or tattoo's.
Tiara typically just wears comfortable clothing around everywhere, often buying two sizes bigger than what she actually should buy just for that extra comfort aspect of things. She practically lives in leggings and sneakers, when not in her work outfit. When she want's to be fancy, usually she just clips a cute badge or two onto her work uniform or jumper and calls it a day- if she had to go to any formal events, she'd more than likely need a lot of help for shopping.
Tiara has a very soft, almost timid Aura. Gentle hues of purple and cyan mingle together peacefully, however there's a large, black hollow spot in the center that the two colours skirt around, avoiding completly like it's some kind of black hole.
Skills, Abilities, & Notoriety
0 - Neutral
Tiara is very used to ignoring her needs over other peoples, and more often not will skirt over any issues she has in favour of ensuring the betterness of somebody else, as it's what she's done most of her life.
She absolutely hates being pitied, and the only time she'll probably ever get properly mad is if somebody begins to pity her when she brings up her brother. Despite what she claims, she's never properly had a chance to get over him, and you might accidentally find her slipping into the present tense when speaking about him.
