Personality


Haven has always had an adventurous nature to her. She was the kind of kid that got herself into trouble often by wandering away from home, exploring in places she shouldn't have been anywhere near, and also a bit of a desire for danger. Danger doesn't scare her, or at least, she would lead you to believe that it does not scare her.

She can be incredibly darling, easily coming off as innocent and sweet, but she has just as much fire in her as anybody when it really comes down to it. She gets frustrated with people quickly when things aren't going as she wants them to, even if it's not really their fault or her expectations for the situation are far too high.

It can't be said that she is not selfish and vain, but when it comes down to it her siblings are the only ones who even come close to ranking above herself. Sure they aggravate her and they get into frequent arguments frequently, but she has always been protective of them, even more so after her parents' disappearance. No one gets to argue with them, but her.

History


Haven was an only child for the first six years of her life and it was pretty fantastic. Her father was a big player in the fishing industry and her mother was a teacher. They lived a very comfortable life and Haven was given more opportunities than many others because of it. Only the prettiest outfits, the most gorgeous sea glass jewelry, and interesting little trinkets that came up with the fish at times. There were even trips out on her father's boat. One of her favorite places to be was out on the boat with her parents, having a picnic style lunch made by her mother.

Of course she got herself into quite a bit of trouble at times for sneaking into areas she wasn't supposed to be in, wandering off on her own while her parents looked for her for hours, and getting herself hurt in the process of her little adventures. She was a handful for sure and maybe that was what had kept her parents from having kids for so many years after her. They were young when they had her as well, but eventually they decided they wanted another child...and then another...and a third....and then finally there was a rather unexpected fourth.

Haven and her siblings basically got along as well as your average siblings. She was far older and they drove her insane, but as much as she wasn't very likely to admit it, she adored them and protected them with all her heart. She even managed to include them in some of her little adventures and well...that didn't always turn out so great.

She was fourteen years old when her parents disappeared. Her mother had gone out on the boat with her father for the evening for their anniversary, leaving the kids with their grandparents since Haven was not to be trusted babysitting, when an an unexpected storm blew in along the coast. They were never found and assumed dead after it was clear there was no way they could have survived.

The kids stayed with their grandparents, but it didn't take long before her father's "company" and the assets that went with it were taken over by another man that Haven has a lot of unkind words for. It meant living in a small home, that Haven would compare to a shack at times. It was bigger, but there were spots that leaked and creaked and it was just...not what she was used to and there was not enough personal space.

It was hard for her grandparents to provide for her and her siblings. She did what she could to do odd jobs for people and such, but it really wasn't much and as the years went on it was clear that things would only get worse. Her grandfather's declining health was the final push.

Haven decided she was going to enter the pageant to attempt to become a tribute. If she won the games she would be able to support her family forever. If she didn't come home, at least she tried and didn't sit around while they all wasted away. Someone would care for them. Someone would do something if she was gone and her grandparents were gone. At least she could hope they would.

The pageant was right up her alley of course as well. She could win the judges over with her looks, her confidence, and she possessed physical skills as well that she did her best to show off in a sort of flashy way. It worked. She was picked. Now she just waited. Her grandparents were not pleased, but they seemed to understand. They knew that they couldn't keep Haven from doing what she wanted to do, let alone what she felt she must do.
