Basic: Scrying, Mediumship, Spell Casting/Writing, Potions. Ivory is good with spell casting and spell writing but she never had the potions and either avoids making them, or ends up ruining them.
Powers: Pyrokinesis and Molecular Combustion. That's it. It's unlikely Ivory will ever manage to expaned and discover more powers because she has a hard enough time controlling what she has. She still lights fires and blows things up by accident when she's angry, scared, or upset. It'll be a miracle if she manages to focus on having total control over these.
Intellectual, Hard-working, Loyal, Sarcastic, Temperamental, Vindictive, and Grudge-holding. Ivory is very book smart and good at writing, computer programming, and memorizing random facts. She works hard and is loyal but she's also upset and angered easily due to being isolated most of her life. Oh, and she never admits when she was wrong. Perhaps this will improve, perhaps it won't. Only time will tell.
The biggest thing is doubt. She doubts herself highly because she thinks abilities like hers were meant to be 'evil.' But she doesn't want to be so she thinks it just hinders her from ever being a good witch.
Ivory was born in Manhatten, New York to two witch parents. Her mother was an English-born Witch with molecular combustion, an ability which expanded for her mother into other molecular abilities. Her father was pyrokinetic. Ivory inheirited pyrokinesis and molecular combustion, though her abilities will likely never expand.
By the time Ivory was seven, her father had shown obsessive signs of wanting to be more powerful. Helping innocents mattered little to him. Around her seventh birthday, Ivory's father succeeded in becoming a warlcok by killing a witch for her abilities. He spent a good deal of time trying to convince Ivory's mother to join him, and fled when she refused. His absence made her mother fall into a deep depression.
Ivory was homeschooled so that she could learn to use her abilities at home without risk of exposure, but with her mother depressed and her father's location unknown, Ivory found it difficult to focus. She was very book smart, and while her abilities became second nature to her, they still went haywire every time she was angry or upset. This didn't improve.
By the time Ivory was eighteen, her mother's depression hahd turned into full criticle illness. Her mother died the day Ivory graduated with other homeschooled kids in Manhatten. Ivory skipped out on the ceremony, took the savings her mother had left her, and accepted a scholarship to a university in Los Angeles, California.
Upon moving, Ivory focused entirely on her lessons. But socializing with others was hard as she had spent most of her time with just her mother and her mother's occasional witch friend. Still, Ivory tried to stick it out. A year into school, Ivory began taking on Freelance Programming jobs for extra money so her savings wouldn't run dry. By the time she graduated, Ivory had established herself as a Freelance Programmer for hire around Los Angeles.
But without guidance, her abilities didn't improve and accidents still happened when she got upset, angry, or scared. Thankfully, nothing public yet...
