PB: Esmé Bianco
Character Journal: scarletsister
NAME: Sabina Faramella Domicetti
A.K.A.: Sister Sabina (an affectionate joke), Scarlet Sabina (by snooty detractors)
AGE/BIRTHDAY: 32 / Pisces 12
GUILD: Mages' Guild
JOB CLASS: Scholar (12) → White Mage (17)
APPEARANCE: At first glance, when strolling through the halls of the Mages' Tower, most visitors take Sabina Domicetti for a Black Mage. A tall, curvaceous woman with thick auburn hair and milky skin, Sabina has an aura that can only be described as rich. From the ornately-embroidered clothes she wears to the quirk of her red lips to the floating trill of her voice, she's an undeniable presence who tends to draw attention -- both positive and negative -- when she enters a room.
HISTORY: Sabina Domicetti was born in the city of Emillion to a family of the merchant classes. Her father was a stonemason, her mother a tailor, and they already had four beautiful daughters by the time baby Sabina came around. Without the money to support an eventual fifth dowry, the Domicettis -- staunch, old school Pharists -- sent Sabina to study at the convent when she was ten years old. She was marked early in her studies as having strong magical potential, and by twelve she was training as a Pharist Scholar, hoping to eventually become a consecrated mage in the service of the church.
Though she believed wholeheartedly in the teachings of St. Ajora, Sabina had more trouble than her peers at the convent did resisting the temptations that were wholly unbecoming a nun. At seventeen, after achieving White Mage status but shortly before she was due to take her holy orders, she discovered she was pregnant. It was the scandal of all the religious, and she was asked to leave the convent.
With nowhere else to go, Sabina asked the Mages' Guild for a place there. No one knows what became of the baby exactly, but rumor has it the Guild helped her find an adoptive family. She stayed on quietly working for the Guild for some time, eventually acting officially as a white magic teacher once all the scandal died down.
Sabina continues to teach, and is considered one of the leading white magic experts in the city. Her strong faith, despite her excommunication from the convent, has -- unusually for a White Mage -- allowed her to push her studies into the embrace of awesome offensive power. There is some concern among the higher-ups in the Guild lately about her emphasis on offensive magic, as Holy spells can be more unpredictable than elemental black magic.
PERSONALITY: Brassy and bawdy but mostly a tease, Sabina is easy with her affections and quick to warm to new acquaintances. To her closest friends, though, she quickly becomes a stern yet loving mother hen; it's always a bad idea to act as though you aren't taking her advice seriously. Advice-giving is what she does, so don't be ungrateful about it! Goodness.
Sabina gravitates toward young people she can mold into successful little boys and girls, hoping to prevent them from going astray as she once did, but her deepest associations tend to be with other screw-ups. She's not ashamed of herself, and she doesn't much care about respectability; if polite society has cast you off, she's happy to give you what support she can.
