Curious to a fault, articulate, and self-assured, Nylea is a natural academic.
Long, dark hair frame the woman's face while her amber-colored eyes shine with keen curiosity. A light dusting of freckles cross her nose and cheeks. A rough-stitched scar drags from her left cheek to mouth. Visibly, she resembles her Inuit mother but her prominent New York accent suggests a different upbringing altogether.
Nylea is a scholar eager for boots-on-ground study. A history in physical sciences, chemistry, and biology fuel her love of the Earth and gives her a wealth of insight to draw from. No stranger to the earth, to the wild, her frequent research trips require extended camping trips.
Brought home with Dr. Eduard Dumas, Professor of Biology at Cornell University in her infancy, Nylea was enrolled in St Taylor's Catholic Academy where she displayed a knack for learning. Her father enthusiastically encouraged this pursuit of knowledge as her driving motivation, pushing her to attend as much education as she could get her hands on.
In 1891, Nylea began working in printing presses between university studies from New York, to Montreal, and Toronto before abruptly departing for Washington DC in 1898, and later New Alexandria.
Publishing minor pieces in local news bulletins, residing primarily in Saint Denis.
The diverse ecosystems and natural resources across the state as well as the network of telegraph lines make it ideal for her to continue her research and publish remotely. This nomadic living gives her ample time to mingle with the neighbors of all backgrounds. As a journalist with an interest in the community, she's no stranger to working odd-trades as an opportunity to be a part of the American life.
"I mostly just ask people pointed questions and publish quotes in the paper."
Her left cheek is partially paralyzed.
If you ask nicely, she might show you her tattoos - allegedly.
