Angles- it is a word that pronounces the likes of Marina all too accurately. Her whole appearance of made up of jutting limbs and sharp bones. Her face is plump, rounded and prominent yet constantly holds a stage of grace and even wealth despite coming from a rather meager family. She is complete with a very wide set of eyes, almost buglike in nature. Each large orb is blue in colour, terminating a shade of 'alice blue'. A large jutting nose, puckered and parted wide-top lips and narrowing bushy eyebrows which she constantly keeps groomed makes up the features upon Marina's face- prominent and cryptic.
In senses of height and weight, Marina is excessively bony, a shock consulting to her parents job and relays upon the slimmer side but perhaps this is just due to her abnormally long limbs. With very lengthy arms, legs and torso, Marina in consult, is rather tall and stands at a dominant 5"8. Probably the most memorable and noted remark of Marina's appearance is her glam 50's hairstyle. Bleached strands of blonde hair fall from her crown, usually straight but sometimes with the slight wave and bounce. Each strand is nourished and tamed, reaching down to her mid-back. Her style often ranges from clothing inspired by the mid 90's with a sense of American-esque suburban dilemma despite being from Europe herself. Marina enjoys lipstick and cat-like eye makeup. .
- She's classy- a fine lady of sorts. Poised, graceful and lissom, somewhat kind and ethereal yet a realist at that with her head elegantly turned and authoritive fused. It's confusing to see such a girl like Marina Warren at such a chic disposition conveying the life that she had grown up to. But instead, the beater is firm and fashionably chosen, tasteful and refined. Rina is by all means, not rich nor snobby nor elite, but carryies herself with a sense of pride and maybe even vain, and holds herself with respect and loyalty. She does not feign herself into sinly acts and tries to be the best person that she can achieve to- if you'd like to play it that way.
Yet devious she can be, and to please others, Marina will act two faced and selfish, even irrelevantly devious to display the best picture of herself. Marina in general is a pretty sanguine girl, optimistic and easy to get along with but she can be wistful and defensive, easily jealous and protective. Marina would be considered bossy yet she is no leader but instead acts the mother- nurturing yet firm, she tends herself into grace in order to control and care for those around her.
Despite being a quidditch player, Marina is not competitive despite her controlling traits but instead, holds immense refinement which is polished with cordiality and acts the merrymaker usually in her clan. Yet not everything can be in good will, for Rina does hold the tendency to act as if induced with melancholy if not always over-exaggerating. Whilst Ri is not a whiner nor is she a party pooper, she can act snappy and glum if her spirits are doused.
To summarize, it's essential to say that Marina acts the princess- graceful and nurturing and poised with elegance, class and taste despite her childhood background of being a chippy owners daughter. She however, holds such trait of selfishness- absolute selfishness that can proceed to Marina appearing egotistical and vain even. Yet Marina is nourishing, and her venal objectives are often dispatched from her personality when acting protective for others. To Marina, you just need mean some sort of worth to her to be liked- it's as simple as that.

It's sweet bread and stunning scenery that commend Tilden and Dorina together. It's the night stargazing and the days listening to Mick Jagger in a haze of smoke, hidden up in Tilden's fathers attic. It's the existance of two souls hand in hand that bring two individuals together to form a bond so languid, so strong. It's love and everyone knows it. It's a fairly normal relationship if you must- and the flames doused high against the murky city of Liverpool. Tilden had been minding his fathers fish and chips diner when Dorina had entered- lost and alone and a fresh runaway from her parents after a fight with her anxiety stricken mother.
Mrs Warren, kindly and old had abolished a place in the house to look after Dorina- having always wanted a daughter herself, and took pity on the poor girl whos relationship with her actual parents seemed so strained. And you could guess what happened next; Tilden and Dorina sitting in the attic confessing over constellations and pie recipes and suddenly it's love all over in a mermaid motel, jump rope queen and deep fryer king. It's love out of nowhere which only progressed with time.
The pair marry some time later, and as Tilden's parents move into a quaint cottage in Wales, he takes over the business- the house reeking of oil and lemons, salt and vinegar chips stained on the wall. They're not rich, they're not especially outstanding but the Warren's are tolerable and their life is tolerable even, inside the small chippy with the too-messy flat above. And soon enough, Dorina confesses herself pregnant, and it's official that this is really going to become a family.
She was named Marina because Dorina loved mermaids- all things mermaid, all things under the sea and her child's life was an epitome of watching The Little Mermaid on repeat. And for the first few years, it was good- it was fine. And then all of a sudden it wasn't. The day Dorina Daisy Warren died indicated Marina's loss of a motherly figure. It had been hemophilia initially, with a strain of Hepatitis B from an anonymous blood donor. Females did not tend to receive the disease of hemophilia but perhaps Dorina had been special- or cursed. Either way.
Two years old and running, directly after her mothers death the cause? Initially being infected due to blood donations.) and Marina insisted to watch The Little Mermaid on repeat every single day, ignoring her fathers pleas, her wellbeing, everything. she had to watch the one movie everyday, as if her mother would have wanted it. Marina was sure.
However she was young when Dorina had passed, and known memories of her mother had been scarce to the toddler. She (and perhaps this was harsh to say) did not miss her mother all too much, of course in the excuse that Marina had only known her mother for two years compared to someone to loose a parent at the age of fifteen or sixteen. of course, to her life ahead, she would feel intimidated and jealous to a lack of motherly figure and sure Marina was devastated by it. But she had moved on, perhaps earlier than anticipated.
Throughout her childhood, Marina lived with her kindly father who was lovely yes, but he was the cowardly lion and took halcyon hostage behind his deep fryer. Tilden had always been a soft person, and when it came to raising a daughter knew the slightest of ideas. So to say that Marina's childhood had been deprived off a motherly authoritativeness was considered correct. It was said that to this day, Marina's motherly and mollycoddling firm nature is due to the absence of her mother, in which she muddles those emotions into her own firm nourishment- a result due to the fact that Marina would never want anyone to grow deprived off a mother, just like her.
In terms of magic, Tilden knew vaguely of the whole ordeal from his late wife, yet stood dazed and confused over the subject and it wasn't until a letter by owl (much to his surprise) arrived at the chippy's door that gave the poor man a wake up call for his daughter. Of course Marina had showns of magic as a younger child- oil splattering up, chips turning pink, fried fish animating and chasing after customers but Tilden had always turned a blind eye- like always. He was not discriminating however, but instead perhaps a little sad to send his only child off to a magical boarding school. But it would be what Dorina wanted so he did not argue.
In Marina's stay at Hogwarts, she had been sorted into Ravenclaw. With her wits and grace that she had somehow held onto despite lacking a female authorized figure upon the household, it was evident that girl was quick to her feet, artistic and fluid. She was a mastpiece painted with the most accurate of hands, a blend of replenished colours and emotions. Stylish, agile, willowy and downright classical. She was like a muse, with her literature gods and way of swaying her hips and acting like a femme fatale all chic and polished. She was linear.
Smart, Marina surpassed her grades with acceptable standards. She was neither intimidatingly smart nor dumb but instead landed herself in well off grades with obvious weaknesses and strengths. But it was surprising that Marina had found such an interest in a sport over anything. No one would expect linear and flawless Marina Warren, daughter of a fish and chips owner to like a sport out of all. But Marina loved it. Making it into her house team for a majority of her time at Hogwarts, it came as an even bigger suprise that linear and flawless Marina liked playing the beater. Perhaps it was her knack of hitting things with her bulls-eye swing with her perfect coordination and calculation but either way, the young maiden had obviously found her talent, her soul, her reason to live.
Upon graduating however, Marina did not intent to replenish her soul straight into the game but instead, tagged around with her friend Gladys and Gladys's older twin brothers. She bummed around, doing nothing and everything, taking up odd jobs for nothing and travelling around, taking a year off after school to fully relax. And then the draft came in haul. The 1996 draft. An opportunity at it's finest. Perhaps this was Marina- classy and linear princess with the knack of acting like a faultless dryad- perhaps this was her turn.
Come the year 1997 Marina travelled to Boston, Massachusetts perhaps for a slice of life or a mere escape from Europe itself. As of current she currently stays with her cousin in a small flat in central Boston, spending the next month relaxing and delving into the American dream, her quidditch activity quiescent and her enjoyment in the states being incredibly munificent.
