Scars: Long thin scar that runs from the right cheek to the right shoulder blade.
Clothing and Accessories:
Currently, Lopa is wearing the uniform of a junior member of the Inquisitors that come from her home island. This includes a large brimmed hat that obscures most of the inquisitors face to those looking at them, of course Lopa cut holes into hers to fit the Bunny Ear headband that she sometimes wears through. She wears a uniform style red jacket with golden buttons and white accents around the collar, shoulders and sleeves, under which she typically wears a white short sleeved blouse with a blue neck tie, the blouse is generally stuffed into her black skirt from which is pinned golden chains that hang off her right side, there is also a belt that allows her to keep the thin rapier like sword of her order secured at her hip.

She of course carries herself in a much more boisterous and excitable way than someone who would otherwise be possessed of such grace. With chubby cheeks, buck teeth, a button nose, and large eyes she has a general appearance that might remind someone of a bunny, which is seemingly only exacerbated by the fact that she seems to constantly bounce around and is generally very innocent and excitable.

- Positive Traits -
Boisterous - Compassionate - Honest - Idealistic - Adventurous - Faithful

- Negative Traits -
Gullible - Hyperactive - Clumsy - Stubborn - Dependant - Careless

Likes:
Nature - Helping - Plushies - Hugs - Swordplay - Tequila

Bullies - Studying - Praying - Crackers - Oatmeal - Marines
Unique laugh: Being a fun loving sort, Lopa is one to laugh first and laugh often, when she does she makes the “Usasahsahsahsah” sound.

Hometown:
Lopa grew up in the city of Corville which is located in the North Blue on Blue Frog Island. Corville itself is the central location of a religious order by the name of the Compass Cross. Other than that Corville is known for its white high sea walls which gives the city a warm glow during the day. It’s a major port that boasts many amenities, however everything in the city is protected by the church and therefore most people in the city pay a small tithe to maintain the church. The church itself is actually responsible for paying taxes and keeping good relations with the world government.

Blue Frog Island is named after the shape of the island, and the fact that the trees possess a unique quality in which they seem to reflect the color of the sea in their leave, giving them an bluish appearance during the day. It’s a very warm island which boasts a large population thanks to the coastal city Corville. It mainly exports vegetables from the fertile farms that dot the landscape of the island, though most of the islands economy comes from the religious center of the island via the various services that the church offers.

Personality:
As a child, the only thing that was on Lopa’s mind was being a helpful and good girl. As an orphan who lived at the church she often spent her days doing chores and other errands for the nuns that would take care of her. Of course she was kind of clumsy and this drew the attention of a lot of bullies who would take advantage of her good nature and gullible side to send her into situations that would get her hurt or otherwise upset her. Even though she was a constant target of bullying from her peers she would stubbornly endure the taunting and teasing. Rather than suffering because of it she seemed to grow stronger and more sure of her position, always willing to turn the other cheek to those who would otherwise hurt her. Of course due to this she would never take anyone else being bullied, she’s always the first to come to the defense of someone who can’t defend themselves; she absolutely despises when other people are hurt or teased because of something they can’t control.

As she grew into herself, Lopa’s good natured helpfulness and willingness to protect others from harm became an absolute storm of positivity. She always tried her best to cheer others who were hurt up, slowly becoming more boisterous and fun loving as a result. Her hyperactive nature seemed to spawn from always wanting to be helpful and to do errands for her elders as fast as possible, she started to hate sitting down and studying because she always felt like she could be doing something better with her time.

At the end of the day Lopa’s personality can be summed up into being unyieldingly hard working, she doesn’t let things get in her way. In both social situations and fights she will stand her ground and do her best to make sure that she gets the best outcome of the fight, even if that isn’t always feasibly possible. This can make her a bit of a liability as she’s not the type to retreat or back down from her ideals, but it also makes her a staunch ally when her ideals align with something that may be unpopular or hard to defend.

Early History:

Lopa Bonnie was born in the year 1812 on Snowpass, an island in North Blue that was known for its supply of freshwater that would trickle down from the mountains after the snow had melted. This water was considered to be some of the tastiest water in all the world and it was thus used in a lot of beverages around the world; particularly in a beverage called Ambrosia which was enjoyed exclusively by the Celestial Dragons around the world. This wasn’t a problem until 1814, when a trade agreement went bad and suddenly the water became more expensive to transport; hindering the production of Ambrosia.

Deciding that the villagers of Snow Pass were at fault the World Government sent the Marines to lay claim to the village in order to gain firsthand access to the water used to produce Ambrosia. Hearing about this the Revolutionary Army responded with their own force, moving in to “protect” the members of Snowpass from the invading Marines. As things often do when the two factions meet, the Revolutionaries and the Marines quickly broke down into openly fighting in the streets of the villages on Snowpass with tensions escalating very quickly over a short period of time.

This led to the overseeing noble to become very frustrated with the fact that his campaign was not immediately successful. In a fit of rage he ordered the Mariens to start firing cannons on the villages directly, to raze the villages to the ground and kill every single last person who had their feet on the surface of his new island. This of course sent the citizens of the island into a panic, trying to evacuate their homes in order to survive. As they pushed and shoved their way to the coast they learned that there weren’t enough ships in harbor to take all the citizens of the island away.

Marines and Revolutionaries both refused to take any of the citizens onto their own ships, causing more panic and desperation as the island was bombarded around them.

The only option that prevented itself was a group of Missionaries from the Compass Cross church that had moored in the harbor to trade for water from Snowpass. Of course they didn’t have room to take all the citizens aboard their ship either, so they presented an ultimatum to the citizens of Snowpass. They would only accept the children from the island, in return the children would be bound to the church where they would grow up safe in service to it. With little choice the parents of the island decided to give up their children, an event that would later come to be known as The Day of Empty Arms to those that survived the event.

Lopa was one of these children given up to the church by her blubbering parents, lifted into the arms of the missionaries aboard the ship. At the time she was little more than a toddler so she doesn’t really remember the event that well, her older peers would recount the events though and she remembers some of the feelings that went through her that day. She remembers the faces of her parents and all the happy times that they had shared, but the cut was so deep into her developing psyche that it seemingly didn’t effect her very much growing up; or rather she was very good at hiding away the pain that she felt with her sunny smile.
Recent History:

Growing up under the service of the Compass Cross church wasn’t the easiest thing to adjust too for any of the children. Many of them including Lopa were set to simple chores very early in their life such as drawing water from a well, cleaning the halls of the cathedral, or sorting out the libraries. Many of the older kids would often become dissatisfied with the treatment that they received but Lopa was always earnest and willing to help others.

It wasn’t a bad life to be brought into either, Blue Frog Island was home to one of the largest port towns in North Blue, Corville, a beautiful coastal city bathed in warmth with red tile roofs that shown in the sun. This city also boasted the large cathedral of the Compass Cross which had facilities for teaching and taking care of the children of the city. Many citizens of the city had their lives revolve around the church, those who didn’t become Sisters or Brothers of the church would often pay tithes to the church to manage its upkeep. And the children of Snowpass were influenced to do the very same with their chores and studies at the church. In return they were supplied with clothes, food, and shelter, some of the children were even adopted by members of the church.

Even though she was never adopted, Lopa didn’t seem to mind much; she remained cheerful and earnest, always hoping to be a good girl. In a short amount of times she had become something of a fixture to the clergy of the church, a mascot of sorts that would brighten the days of the adults around her. She was even held up as an example to the other children at the orphanage of a child who properly paid respect to her elders.

This was something of an annoyance to her older peers who often thought that she was being a brown noser or a pet for the nuns that took care of them. When they would get punished for not doing their chores many of the older children would turn their frustrations on Lopa who despite her bright disposition was gullible and trusting of nearly everyone she met. This led to a particularly bad incident where some of the children led Lopa into an alleyway with the promise of sweets, where they pushed her down into the mud, kicking her over and over again to vent their frustrations.

It was at this moment that she met Samuel Solomon a retired member of The Inquisitors, the military and security arm of the church. The old one armed man came across the children beating up on Lopa and managed to pick them all up by the scruff of their shirts and throw them out of the alley. He knelt down to Lopa and helped the girl up with a wizened and compassionate smile, an action that caused the young Lopa to become deeply enamored with the man.

Samuel was a fairly enigmatic man, often quiet and reserved he didn’t seem to protest or remark when he suddenly had a little blonde girl following him around like a shadow everywhere. He allowed her to do chores for him, and kept her engaged with stories of his time in The Inquisitors, who were known excellent swordsmen and trackers. Lopa not only fell in love with the heroic stories but became more deeply enamored with the man himself. And for his part he seemed to start to form a bond with the growing girl as well, teaching her various things about the world, even going so far as to teach her how to defend herself.

One night when the stars were clear Samuel took Lopa up to the roof of the cathedral to watch the stars, for a long while he was quiet and reserved like always. But eventually he broke into a story about The Kings Crossing; a meteorlogical myth that was the supposed point in the world where day and night were perpetually frozen together due to the rotation of the earth. It was said that there one could observe and chart the all the stars movements without even needing a telescope. Samuel had dreamed all of his life of seeing such a place, but had never been able to go out to try to find it due to the fact that he was always tied to the church.

He asked Lopa what she wanted to do with her life, what she dreamed of. She answered that she just wanted to be a good girl, to help others and to be close with them. In his discerning and quiet way he seemed to study her for a while before offering a piece of advice to her.

A caged bird only yearns for the safety of his home because he doesn’t know what wonders the sky holds.

As Lopa grew up she eventually bucked the trend of most girls in the church becoming nuns by joining The Inquisitors instead wanting to follow in the footsteps of Samuel. She trained hard and became something of a legendary idiot within the military organization, a capable swordswoman who was often easy to trick or deceive.

In 1828, Lopa’s life was once again thrown into chaos on one warm night. Awoken from her slumber by another Inquisitor, Lopa learned that Corville and the church had been set ablaze. Some of the Inquisitors blamed a Marine vessel that had been docked at the harbor for initiating the attack. She wasn’t sure if it was her gullibility or the fact that she harbored some hatred toward the governement, but Lopa believed the story and lept into action to defend her home against the Marines.

Her view on the situation warped however when she stumbled into the vaults of the cathedral to witness Samuel cut down ten members of the Marines in cold blood before taking an eternal pose that was being held in the vaults for himself and putting it in his pouch. Lopa had never been the smartest person, but even she came to realize that Samuel was stealing from the vaults, trying to pursue his dream. The Marines, despite what Lopa might have thought of them, were actually trying to defend the vaults, to keep the man from stealing the treasures within. And despite the fact that he had retired and only had one arm, Samuel was still able to cut down ten men as easily as he breathed.

Before he could leave with his treasure however he came face to face with Lopa.

Standing resolute in the entrance of the vault staring in horror at her mentor's actions, trying to process what had just happened. Samuel had a deep regret in his eyes, and he did nothing to try to explain the atrocities that he had committed. They knew each other well enough to know that neither would back down from their position, in that moment mentor and student had become enemies.

So Samuel put his hand to his sword, and teacher and student clashed. There was no way a rookie inquisitor like Lopa could ever hope to defeat the more experienced legendary inquisitor himself. In a matter of moments Samuel delivered a devastating cut down her neck and chest, leaving a bleeding and dying Lopa on the floor of the vault.

In the aftermath of the attack Lopa was found by one of the other Inquisitors and nursed back to health. Samuel had escaped capture and the Marines had placed a ban on any ships sailing out of Corville while they attempted to sort out what really happened in the city that night. This prevented the Inquisitors from chasing down their own rogue member, and in the days that followed they began to grow restless. Connie especially was feeling betrayed and found herself wondering just why Samuel would go against his own people.

The question burned inside of her so much that one night she snuck out of the church and to the harbor of Corville. Stealing a nearby swoop she sailed into the night breaking the Naval blockade and sailing out to sea to find out what her mentor had done and why. She intends to find Kings Cross and return Samuel’s rosary to him; but not in the way she had originally wanted to meet him again.
