Character Name: Veronika Sable-Preston
Character LJ (if applicable): silverdaughter
Physical description: 5'5", brown hair, brown eyes. Thin but well toned body.
PB: Lacey Chabert
Abilities: Nika is an adept hand-to-hand combatant and martial artist, a skilled markswoman and swordswoman, and a fair gymnast; she has been trained from a young age by both parents and is agile and has above average strength, speed, durability, and reflexes. She is fluent in French, German, and other languages.
Weaknesses and flaws: Single-minded determination to be able to run her mother's company by the age of 21 which can distract her from important immediate things. Acts like she's 16 going on 30. Though amazingly girly when alone with her father.
Character location/Home: Symkarian embassy, New York
Alignment: hero / mercenary
Relatives: Silver Sable (mother, living), John Preston (father, living), Lisa Preston (half-sister, living), Robbie Preston (half-brother, living), Longshot (adopted half-brother, living), Anna Sablinovia (cousin, living), Ernst Sablinovia (grandfather, deceased), Anastasia Sablinovia (grandmother, deceased), Mortimer (maternal great uncle, living), Fritz Sablinovia (paternal great uncle, deceased), Aiden Blaire (nephew, living), Hana Blaire (niece, living)
Backstory: Shortly after John Preston was gifted with his very first grandchildren, he went on a month-long vacation with his lover, Silver Sable. There was less caution used toward the latter part of the vacation and Silver Sable ended up pregnant. Rather than raise the child alone and do a job similar to what her father did with her, Silver married John and delivered a healthy daughter a few months later. Any debate of what the daughter was going to be named often ended with firm maternal refusal to name their daughter after where she was conceived. So the Swahili word for tree top is not Veronika.
Family life in the Sable-Preston household was mostly harmonious, although Nika often found herself in the middle of squabbles between her elder sister, Lisa, and her even older cousin, Anna. Nika could never settle the issues and often grew very tired of the same arguments over and over again. When the two stopped dealing with each other due to being in different countries, it brought a lot of piece of mind for the youngest family member.
As soon as both Silver and John agreed, Nika was started on training to follow in her mother's footsteps. She was in no way pushed as hard as her mother was in training at a comparable age, but the girl worked hard because she felt the weighty expectations of her mother on her.
