  1. The move to Australia was not one that Calixta had planned for. In truth she was content in Greece, at least for a time. She found she was restless more often than not since Kosta had died. It was strange to sit still- to wake up and roll over and expect to see him. It was not something she would have considered before her husband had passed honestly. Then things had changed. Her children had grown up and had their own things going on. They would visit her wherever she was and with her brother moving to Australia and opening a new branch of the business, it made sense she base her operations here as well. They had not been using curse breakers for long, but they were now a standard. Which meant she took those curse breakers who had decided that a job at the ministry was not for them. There were things they needed to look for, and there were lots of bodies they would need. She had come with a few of the more senior breakers with her and they had been busy training. It was good for her, she was able to focus on things easier than she had been before. She had not though the change of scenery would have been so good for her. The moments she had been able to find free time, she had actually used it as free time. Spending time with Atlas, her nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephew had been truly a blessing. That was one thing she knew for sure. That and she had come at the opportune time to meet her newest Nephew, though he was not a baby, but nearly a grown man. Cali had seen the stress that it had caused her brother. Though the fact he was making changes and working towards something made her wonder about him… She was rather worried about Atlas. Then again as the baby sister she had always worried after her brothers. That instinct had not changed. Atlas was not perfect, but then again none of them were. It seemed like the Karras family was hard wired to mess things up. They had been doing it long enough to know just how. Though she supposed they should really spend time learning how not to mess things up… but they managed to keep themselves too busy doing otherwise. Today however she had been exploring the shopping options in Oliphant. It was nice to have moments to shop from time to time. Cali had not been the big spender her brother was but she knew how to spend money when she had the chance. She was window shopping for the time being. That was one of the few things she could trust herself to do. When she went into the shops she had a difficult time saying no. Especially to shoes, but for now she was doing alright. She was standing in front of the pastry shop and she found that her resolve was beginning to crack. ”Please tell me that the pastry is horrible so I won’t be tempted.” She let out a soft laugh.
  2. ”And she speaks in a voice that sets men trembling, with eyes painted gold and a throne built on the bones of those who would challenge her rule. “ Calixta is the youngest of three, and the only girl. When she was born her father was doomed to be wrapped around her father’s finger. Spending her childhood searching for a way to fit in with the boys she was constantly making her own way. She was younger than her siblings by 15, and 10 years. She was annoying as she tagged along and soon Calixta found that she did better when she found her own way and independence. It was one that kept her from becoming soft and delicate. Something she found to be a crime in women who waited to be saved. She learned to save herself and she rode the stallion, and it was hardly white. Cults of ascetics’ dance ecstasies in her honor and write her words in blood across their altars. Her body is a holy temple and her power springs from the divine source of her own terrible will. She came into her own at school. She found that all she needed to be successful was within her. The shipping company was something for the boys and she would find something greater to use her ability on. Calixta was intelligent, she caught onto things quickly and was often bored in school. She spent years looking to challenge herself until she found a professor who was willing to mentor her. The hours she spent with her mentor proved rather fruitful as she found her skills and her confidence in her competence. She is not of mortal flesh, they will whisper, as she wheels on her stallion and screams war chants to the heavens, emerging from battle wreathed in the blood and soil of a new kingdom. Though she was a woman of great personal drive, she found that even the Woman King could fall in love. Kosta was man who loved her drive and ambition and Calixta loved that the man was not threatened by her want and desire to be the best. They were married young and Calixta started her career at the family company as a curse breaker. It was her brother’s death that had inspired the interest. Athena Worldwide is known for shipping all magical items including the unstable and cursed ones. It was her instance that they have curse breakers. Her brother’s death was senseless. She rules with iron fists, with the cracking of cathedrals, with the love and the fear of her vast wild armies. She harbors a sword within her unquiet roaring heart, and with it has carved herself a new space, outside of law or nature or humankind. It was not long before the couple had three children 2 boys and a girl. It was a good thing for her she softened for the children. Not in the way something becomes lumpy and unshapen but in the way it was not so harsh when you leaned against it. It was not until her oldest son was murdered that she found the softness fade. Calixta had been lost for a bit. He had died senselessly in an argument with someone at a restaurant. He was just 18. Shortly after that Kosta died. He had been ill for a few years but it sent her into a spiral to find herself. She is the mother of an empire; she is the mother of herself. Having no choice but to move one and protect her family she has come to Australia due to her brother’s move. Calixta needs to be near her family and the business. She has been training the new curse breakers here, having found the various location for such training optimal. Calixa refuses to give in to the grief and will instead find something more. Watch her rise. Quotes from: here
