Con artist Klepto

Aspects

Con Artist: Having spent her time as a con artists, Magnolia knows how to be someone else. She's fantastic at cover work and a terrific liar, but sometimes when she's nervous or plain not paying attention, she'll fall into old habits without realizing it.
I’m A Little Teapot: All her life, she's been very hot headed. She's spent all that time learning to deal with it, though. She’s learned patience because of it; when that fails her, she’s had practice focusing her frustrations (like the whistle on a tea kettle); but when that fails, she tends to splash scalding water everywhere.
Klepto: She will compulsively steal items laying around. The items themselves don't matter in the slightest; she's just as likely to pocket the keys you'll need to get out of a trap as to spirit away your own knife—and then lose it or give it away. Years of practice have given her excellent slight of hand abilities, but the habit and the compulsion of her kleptomania don't always allow time to judge whether or not her skills will be enough to keep her out of trouble from getting caught.

Red-Handed: Magpie's dominant hand has had its fingertips turned gold, which later turned a bright red; additionally, this effect has cost her her ring finger. She now lacks any sensation, traction, or flexibility in the tips of her fingers, making finger-based activities difficult.

Personal History

Known as Magpie to her friends for her kleptomaniacal tendencies, Magnolia came from a large, well off family. She went to college to study art history and made friends with certain people and teamed up to run a successful con operation. When her family found out, she was essentially disowned. After conning MC&D, she and her team made it onto the Foundation's radar. The Foundation hired most of the team, sending them all to different sites for security. Magnolia spent a few months at a euclid site before getting unruly due to "boredom" and was subsequently sent to the keter area 354 to join the poolboys. ("Let's see her get bored there, eh?")

Miscellaneous

Long black hair, pale skinned, magpie tattoo on her back. She has wider hips but not excessively so and generally wears a medium top. She looks to be about thirty, but she'll lie if you ask her age. She's missing half of her right ring finger and the rest of her fingers on her right hand are tipped with a red colored gold. She wears gloves to cover this. She's also missing a molar and has a good deal of scars on her torso and arms. She keeps the ones on her arms covered with make-up.
Magpie hates being bored more than anything else. Danger and trouble are mere trifles in comparison—just so long as they're exciting. But getting scars are a close second.
