Background

Ruzica had always been surrounded with the occult and one of her earliest memories is of her uncle being devoured by a purple, winged creature she later came to discover was called Laszlo (and, incidentally, was also an uncle of hers). Her mother was a member of a cult centered in Valjevo, Serbia, although her mother was always fiercely Croatian. When Yugoslavia dissolved, her mother dragged her across to Zagreb where the two of them attempted to break with their past and start a new, non-occult life. It didn't last very long.

Ruzica's mother was kidnapped by demons, and although it wasn't the first time such a thing had happened, this time her mother didn't come back. Ruzica was on her own. She called upon her family back in Serbia and made some unusual reunions including afternoon tea with Uncle Laszlo. Her obsession with the occult was refuelled by her mother's absence and she began an apprenticeship with various family members, often being passed around regularly as a slave girl in the Cinderella style, although Ruzica never complained openly.

When she had mastered enough magic, and the number of her family support network had dwindled to three because of a variety of demon-hunters and terrible accidents; Ruzica travelled back to Croatia, having heard of a group of young (and hip) occultists on a island called Krk. The island was actually a bustling and corrupt metropolis and Ruzica found herself loving the darkness and despair.

She found her way into the Grabancijas coterie and was accepted, initially on a trial basis. They didn't trust her, but that wasn't seen as a negative thing. They didn't trust anyone. But when Uncle Laszlo arrived in a plume of sulphur and began to feast upon one of the occultists, the Grabancijas decided that Ruzica was too much trouble.

They banished Laszlo and cursed Ruzica before leaving Krk Island for good.

Ruzica found herself without her spell-casting ability and without a home. But worse than that she found that she was now trapped in the form of a monkey. After some frantic soul-searching Ruzica hit the streets and tried to survive the best she could. People generally freaked out when she spoke and while some tried to capture her most of them ran away. That was until she met Morkin, a kind-hearted woman in the midst of a cess pit.

Although embarrassed to admit it now, Ruzica literally latched on to Morkin and wouldn't let go until the laughing woman promised to look after her.

Personality

Ruzica hasn't fully come to terms with becoming a monkey. She has a short temper and can be often sarcastic and rude, although when she is upbeat and relaxed she is very friendly and easy to get along with. She has become very close friends with Morkin and feels comfortable in her presence. Since she has no family of her own, Ruzica often finds herself thinking of Morkin as her mother. This is something Morkin is happy to go along with as she knows the hard life young Ruzica has endured.

Quote

"It's not that I can't talk, you idiot; it's just that I don't want to talk to YOU!"

Powers

Ruzica was once known as the Dragon Maiden and had begun studying magic, the results of which enabled her to perform a small number of magical spells. Since being cursed she has lost most of this ability although she still possesses the ability to sense magic, and some magical resistance (her protective spells managed to protect some of her magical ability just prior to the transformation). Although her magic is mostly gone, Ruzica now possesses keen acrobatic abilities and all of the natural gifts of a small monkey which means that she can be very difficult to spot when she stays still, and very difficult to catch or hit when she becomes mobile.

Appearance

Ruzica was once a thin, pale-skinned young woman with straight reddish-brown hair and wire-framed spectacles. Since getting mixed up with the Grabancijas and earning their wrath, she now looks like a small wildly-animated monkey. She has dark brown fur, a long tail and a very flexible body which never seems to stop moving.
