Name: Raine Coraline Shelldon
Date of Birth: February 16th, 1895
Appearance: Raine is Amestrian and has wavy, honey blonde hair that cascades down to her waist; her hair is usually worn in a single braid or half-up. She has light, almost neon, blue eyes. Up close, you can see her slightly-sickly complexion (eg easily-seen veins) thanks to health problems. She is 5'4" and about 110 pounds.
Raine typically wears sundresses or blouses with frills and ruffles. Paisley skirts are a favorite of hers. Usually, her shirts are off-shoulder and/or somewhat low-cut. She doesn't really care much about how much of her skin shows. Overall, she loves being very feminine and fashionable.
Trainer: Raine's mother, Emmeline Shelldon, now deceased
Personality: Fairly quiet and introverted. She prefers being alone over being in groups of people. She doesn't have many friends, and she doesn't really mind that at all. Raine's not the type to go out and try to make friends - though if someone is friendly to her, she'll of course give them the chance.
Raine is very family-oriented. She longs to raise a family with her fiance (she's one of those types who legitally wants five or six kids). She loves all four of her older sisters, and enjoys spending time with them.
She's also quite the romance freak. Her favorite books to read are those dramatic love stories with those horribly cheesy covers on them. Sometimes she'll want some...quite intense stuff from her fiance, Callum, but won't ever say anything about it cause she kind of considers herself a slut for thinking such things.
Raine is quite sensitive, and always feels like she's disturbing someone or wasting someone's time...at the same time, she takes people's words very seriously, and is vulnerable to even the slightest insults. That is...until you get her angry. Then she may just try to kill you somehow - just kidding, but she will secretly have some very homicidal thoughts. She's the type of girl who will act impartial or friendly to you but hate absolutely every fiber of your being. She doesn't get angry often, due to the explosive nature of the emotion when she lets it out. Whenever she's frustrated, she'll make it known, to assure you that you don't want to upset her further. She can say some rather harsh and hurtful things in this state, which she later regrets.
Once you get to know her, you will realize that she is fun-loving, though cautious. She will do something at risk of her personal safety only if it's to rescue someone she loves, or if someone is harming them. Though she isn't physically strong, she still tries anything she can to keep her loved ones safe. During this time she may do some...fairly irrational things, and her cautious side vanishes.
Status: Alchemist (water)
Equipment: Raine uses her mother's necklace, which has that symbol on the pendant, to perform her alchemy (she no longer needs it due to attempting human transmutation, but it's just an old habit she's stuck with). If she's out to kick some serious ass, she'll typically carry twin pistols as well. As far as melee weapons go, she loves using a large ice scythe, which is usually larger than herself. She enjoys threatening people with it when she's pissed off.
Abilities: Water alchemy, primarily in healing. She's an excellent baker and loves making cookies.
Bio: Raine is the youngest of five daughters, the others being Ruby (20), Adrianna (21), Lucy and Livianna (twins, both 23). Her father, Lucifer, is the owner of an antique shop in a small rural town in Amestris. He travels around the world to find some antiques from other countries. Livianna typically joins him on these ventures, being the daddy's girl she always has been. Raine's mother, Emmeline, died 5 years ago due to a train crash. Before her death, Lucifer spent the vast majority of his time and energy on taking care of Emmeline and seeking medical help - she had a low immune system, which ended up getting passed down to Raine. Due to his failure to save his wife, Lucifer completely dedicates himself to his work rather than his remaining family. As a result, the sisters don't see much of their father, and Raine hasn't been particularly attached to him since. This is the case for Ruby, Adrianna and Lucy as well.
Backtrack a little bit. Ever since Raine was about five years old, she was best friends with Derek James Bishop, a Cretan. His full first name was Theodoric...his family was very traditional. Anywho, Emmeline was good friends with Derek's mother previously, which is how Raine met Derek. Derek's mother and sister died with Emmeline in the train crash 5 years ago. Over the course of eleven years, their friendship grew but, to Raine's dismay, never grew to romance. Derek was always very calm and gentlemanly, maintaining a fairly positive and realistic outlook on life. He strove for peace and was never the one to pick a fight.
Due to living in Amestris for some time, Derek was drafted into the war. Raine was too much of a baby to confess her love for him before he left. He never returned. He committed suicide on the battlefield, since the violence was too much for him to handle.
Raine also had a good friend named Savaria, or Sav for short, who continues to be a friend now. She's been Raine's friend ever since they were little. Being an orphan, Sav was taken in to join the Shelldon family after her parents died. She also did alchemy training with Raine when they were young. A while after Derek died, Raine decided to go for the most drastic measure - human transmutation. She pretty much just dragged Sav as well as an old friend of Derek into it to help her out, and with their chemistry know-how, they attempted it. It ended up to be a failure, resulting in the creation of a homunculus. Derek's friend ended up being completely taken away while Raine lost part of her torso.
Lucifer kicked Raine out of the house for performing the Taboo, while Sav spent all the money she had on paying Raine's hospital bill as she recieved automail and such. After some time, Raine and Sav were alone with no home and no money. So they set off for Central to look for some opportunities.
While they didn't find anything at first, Raine found her future husband!
Raine and Sav met Callum Azrov (a Drachman, just a few months older than Raine) at a park in Central. Lucky enough, he was looking for roommates, and that started the dramatic new era in Raine's life. From age fifteen to now, Raine has been living in Callum's apartment.
Cool thing is, the homunculus grows the form of a human now, and shows back up into Raine's life. While he's the sin of murder, most people call him by his former name, Derek. Raine and Derek started casually dating for quite some time, but no romance ever really blossomed between them. After some...violent turns of events, they broke up.
Over time, Raine grew a crush on Callum, but sat on the sidelines as she watched three other girls pour themselves all over him. After all, she was just the best friend, and felt it wasn't her place to push it forward with him. At age seventeen, she finally decided to get the hell over him, since it wasn't worth her time. This is when she met Seth Jones, her first legit boyfriend. She was very happy with him, though after a drunken incident and an issue regarding personal boundaries, she decided to break up with him. She later came to regret it, and continues to regret it now, though she'd never admit it to Callum. With Seth out of the picture, she fell in love with Callum again, and they started dating. Thankfully, Callum's crush on her started blooming as well, though she didn't really receive much love from him until they went all the way...his attachment to her was significantly increased after that.
At the current time, Raine is now engaged to Callum. She works at a bakery and tea shop in downtown Amestris. Raine and Cal be married next year, and have three children together. They'll move to Drachma to raise their family.
