Power Description
Florian is able to not only communicate (through thought, feeling, imagery) with the plants and ground around her - primarily plants- to a rather extreme distance of a quarter mile when stretching herself to her limits, but also control the movement of plant life, and to a lesser extent soil and rock. She can also promote plant growth and assist in improving the nutritional value of soil within nutrient depleted soil (mostly by communication, and then feeding it what it really needs to a more specified extent). She can tell fairly easily both through terrakinetic talent and also training what many plants are beneficial for.

She developed her second healing ability later in life and is fairly proficient in telling what is wrong with someone in terms of how life threatening a wound is, and can promote the healing process. She is good with bruising, fevers, hives, coughs, minor infections, minor sprains, strains and broken bones, along with muscle tears and inflammation. Any serious injury will likely be beyond her save for some minor "comforts". Her healing power is very hot and cold- it mostly decides on its own if it'll be helpful or not, and is difficult for her to control. This is also a very exhausting power for her to use which requires multiple days of sleep after expending herself.

Animal Description
Small in animal form compared to her kin, she is thin, with fast paws, pale fur with jet black markings. Her eyes are a unique emerald green which carried from her time as a psychic. A scar lingers on her neck where it meets with her shoulder, waxy and bright in both forms.

Appearance

Standing at 5'6" Flo surprisingly stands out in a crowd. Either from her shock of blonde hair which she wears no longer than shoulder length (a pain to have it long in the garden), or from her rather unique fashion sense. She definitely doesn't dress like she's from the city- which she's not, so in her mind why should she care what people think about her appearance? Her clothing is either hand sewn or from thrift shops, and her jewelry is mostly heirlooms from her family, some dating back to before they settled in America. Flo also doesn't own a lick of make up and usually has dirt or animal fur on her /somewhere/.

Since her untimely turning into a shifter, Florian sports a waxy white scar at the crook of her neck on the left side... about the size of say, a cheetah nom?

Personality

Florian is definitely unique. She grew up as what some would call a "hippy", listening to music on record players, not having internet, television or even a phone. Even though she became accustomed to that technology once moving to the city, she is still technologically challenged, preferring to do things the old fashioned way.
She's not religious in the least, despite using sayings such as "thank god" and other such things. She is a fair singer, but never learned to play any instruments, makes a mean cup of tea and despite not having modern kitchen equipment, is a startlingly good cook. She cares deeply for nature, animals, and people alike, and wishes to help anyone she can who is in need. She looks up to her mother and grandmother and their caring ways and sees no other life for her.
Her biggest regret in life is rejecting her own daughter. At the age of 17 when she was still in foster care, she became pregnant. Afraid of what might be done to her if the baby began to show, she looked into ways of aborting. She found a doctor, but as the date approached, she couldn't bring herself to do it. She birthed the baby, much to the displeasure of her foster mom. Child services arrived and with her permission took the baby. It was a closed ordeal, she never got to see the child after they took her from the room which she birthed her, but she gave her a name. Céline. Whether the family that adopted the newborn kept the name- she did not know. Once the ordeal was over she forced it from her mind. Pretended it never happened. Now that she is older, all she wants is that baby back. To have someone carry on the Dubois Legacy.

POST-TURNING
Florian no longer carries the bright sparkle of inspiration, and love she once had. She hides herself away in a depressive state, no longer attending markets, gardening, and hardly taking care of herself. She no longer has her animals to look after, so she finds herself reading books and hiding away in the dark of her technology-free hut in Red Rock.

RELATIONSHIPS
Jackie Cavanagh: Best friend, but currently walking on eggshells around. Doesn't quite trust her right now, but it's more of a temporary feeling of hurt than any lingering sense of hatred or grudge bearing.
Yana Novik: Seriously wants to rip her face off.
Frank Beringer: Bless this sweet man. She also feels bad about staining his furniture. Has a little bit of irritation towards him for calling Yana.
Mathis De Luca: Doesn't remember ever meeting him
Gabriel Altamura: Doesn't have a strong memory of his actual face, and doesn't know his name, but has nightmares of the face he'd used and his true blood thirst face in all it's glory.

History

Born and raised in a small cottage in a clearing in Red Rock, she only new her mother and grandmother. Never any men in her family. She never really understood why, and they never spoke of her father or grandfather. Both women were healers, gardeners and all around angels. One by one they died leaving a young Florian to be torn from her home and tossed into the foster system where she was punished for her talents, tormented by her foster family and schoolmates alike and generally made uncomfortable with city- or even town life.

She chose the quiet life of a hermit at a young age, borrowing books from the nearby town library for her own self studies on medicine, herbology, gardening, and veterinary care. The life of seclusion (save for her trips into town to sell her produce at the farmers market) proved helpful for her abilities, allowing her to master her terrakinesis, and begin training her mind to use her healing abilities. She still lives out in the Cottage, but is actively entering the town more often now that the supernaturals have been outed to the public in hopes of finding rejected parties in need of aid.

POWER DEVELOPMENT
Florian has an uncanny ability to connect with nature around her, by the age of twelve she could tell if a tree was rubbed up against by a bear 50 yards away. It wasn't until she was torn from her home after her mothers death that her powers really began to develop beyond being able to "feel" nature around her. In the city where trees and plants were scarce, every branch, or piece of grass seemed to gravitate towards her like the sun. her foster parents fern grew like weeds the week after she arrived, slowly growing towards her room where she spent most of her time locked away. Every time they cut back the fern a piece of her seemed to scream.
At the age of 16 she was being bullied in school, and was shoved against a tree before a group of girls tried to beat her bloody. The roots tangled around their ankles instinctively and kept them there so she could run away. The police had to later cut the girls free. Strange accidents continued to happen with increased severity until a guidance Counselor had her try meditation. Over time she was able to reach her consciousness out below the cement to feel nature deep beneath, to connect with neighboring balcony plants, and rooftop gardens. The attacks slowed, and eventually stopped. By the age of 18 she was kicked out of her foster home, and upon leaving to a cheap neighborhood on the outskirts of town, all the plants in her former neighborhood started to wilt and die.
Now, at the ripe age of 40, Florian is able to not only stretch her "feelers" out for a quarter of a mile, more or less depending on how far she pushes herself. She can also manipulate multiple forms of earth, stone, and plants with varying difficulty depending on her connection to the specific area. Concrete is a major weak point for her, but she can usually find a way to move the ground beneath concrete. She has a green thumb to make any experience gardener jealous, and tends to make plants spontaneously grow during highly emotional moments.
In her early twenties she began developing a secondary ability after breaking her wrist in a fall. The bone healed far quicker than it should have, and later that year her cat injured it's paw. Using simple salves, and some TLC the paw was back to normal with no scarring after half the time it should have taken to heal- though she did feel exhausted for a week after. Her healing ability is extremely weak, and tends to decide on it's own when to work or not. She's been practicing as much as she can to better this ability, but without running around as an ambulance chaser, there isn't much hope for her to improve... yet.

POST-TURNING
Florian no longer has any connection to her animals, nor her former powers. She has since joined the Malachite Coalition, yet still resides in red rock.
