Pippa Sonata

Note: this article is a work in progress.
On her eleventh birthday, Pippa was awarded the honour of acting as High Okarina for a day, as is customary in Makari. Immediately, she proceeded to make changes, prompting every inhabitant to exclaim, "Why had we not thought of this earlier?" She then started directing people around, making them improve details here and there. As a result of her ability to perform the duties of her temporary job to such a high level and positive impact, the Allegro raised its voice in request that she remain. The former High Okarina did not even get the time to empty his desk after he was sacked; he was gone and forgotten. Three years later, Pippa is still working at the office, making decisions that have ramifications for the whole Allegro.

Physical Description

Physical quirks

She is rubbing the side of her nose with the index finger when thinking.

Special abilities

Pippa has the ability to communicate with the fae and other creatures who are closely related to the fae realm, such as dryads and many animals, as a result of her partly fae heritage. Even she is unaware of the reason behind this, as she was raised as a foundling and her parents never informed her or anyone else of her situation.   She is also capable of performing small magical faefolk tricks.

Apparel & Accessories

Pippa's typical outfit consists of wide shirts and overalls with wide sleeves worn over a knee-length skirt in various shades of purple and pink, with several bands and ties and wooden pearl trinkets adorning her clothes and hair.

Mental characteristics


Pippa currently serves as the High Okarina of the Allegro.

Personality Characteristics

Likes & Dislikes

Pippa is an excellent swimmer who likes playing in the sea close to Makari and swimming with the schools of fish in the area.


Contacts & Relations

When she has to make decisions in her role as High Okarina, she retreats into her Rondo for an hour or two, to announce her decisions back in the office afterwards. While she is in her chamber in the Rondo, she is having discussions on all of the topics with her friends: her cat Iffie, a fae called Lyra and a dryad named Joanettle. Iffie is constantly in the vicinity of Pippa, although she is usually not visible to anyone else. When Pippa is in her private chambers, Lyra is frequently moving over from Mag Mell, and Joanettle is living in a tree outside Pippa's home and popping in whenever there is a topic to talk about. They are all best friends with each other.

Social Aptitude

In every conversation with someone, Pippa exudes confidence and attempts to engage them in a debate with her words. After determining that someone is merely being naive, she continues speaking extremely slowly to them until she reaches her conclusion.

I like how she didn't care that she was leader only for a day and started reforms. Also, interesting that a child got more support than an adult. New generation taking over :)

Apparently the previous dude didn't get done nothing. I'll add more details during WE as I update here and there. :)

I like the " If I'm here for one day, I'm going to make it count" approach. Also, can Iffie talk ?

She can communicate with all fae, but not by talking. As Pippa has fae blood, she can "hear" Iffie too. :)

This is a beautiful article. You pair the profile picture with the character well; I really get a delightful energy from both. The fact that you created your own prompts for World Ember and have come up with this very good one...and then made this character out of that... (to steal the phrase" ..."Why had we not thought of this earlier?" Good luck with WE2021, keep writing and believing. Awesome job. ♥

Thank you. :) I did look for a nice face to use for this article and the ideas then came when I found that image.

I totally liked the idea of this community just going to what works... if you see improvement in something, switch to it.
