At first, Emi appears to be very approachable, sociable, and cheerful - so long as you don't get in her way. Once you realize that there is a glint of mischief in her dark green eyes, you'll find that she is very secretive and lies about anything easily. In fact, she uses her social skills mostly to blend in with other people in an effort to escape from being seen by authorities or whoever is chasing her; she'll treat anyone she meets like she's known them their whole life just for the sake of blending in, at times even with the use of costumes she manages to steal.
If this petite thief decides that you're an enemy, she can easily switch to being careless about how hurt you can be with her pranks in the blink of an eye. Beware, she does carry a lot of spite behind her bright smile and her vengeful nature will fuel her determination to make you pay for anything you do onto her; in case you forget what you've said or done, she will consistently remind you with her ruthless pranks until you apologize.
As far as self-esteem goes, Emi has a fairly healthy amount. She is confident in her curvy, muscular looks without finding a need to show it off unless she is driven to use it for her own benefit. However, she feels that most people don't take her seriously because of her looks, which enables her behavior to not take life seriously. As a result, she can easily become this ball of energy that thrives on doing or saying the boldest of teases or silliest of jokes just to get reactions out of people. She's more than likely the first to ask you out before you'd have a chance, but she'll only do it for the reaction or funny rejection. Emi's strong resilience allows her to withstand even the toughest of insults; the walls she puts up for people are akin to bounce house walls, where the insults bounce off of her and allow her to throw the insult back at them.
There is also nothing shy about this obnoxiously bold girl. If she knows someone has a weakness for her looks, the ambitious thief will use her body to steal or get what she wants before she escapes without any consideration for the other person. This former clown also has no shame or embarrassment for the chaotic dares she would be willing to do to someone or with someone. The only time she'll blush is when someone flirts back with her in return; however, she can get used to someone's flirtatious nature and will just as quickly become competitive in the game of flirtation, always try to one-up them. Unfortunately, her lack of taking relationships seriously, given her past, has molded her into becoming a big believer of friends with benefits; not to be mistaken for those who do one-night stands, as she does not do those despite what most people may think given her flirtatious nature.
Furthermore, this former circus girl happens to be an adrenaline junkie. She thrives on near-death experiences or chaotic stunts just to get that adrenaline rush that she received back in the circus that she left five years ago. She is more than willing to tease or bother someone with pranks, just to get them to chase her and give her that adrenaline high. It's one of the reasons why she particularly enjoys stealing as a thief.
Perhaps one of her greatest flaws, aside from her obnoxious immaturity, is that Emi struggles with her stubbornness to ask for help. She wants to be able to achieve financial security all on her own in efforts to get her own place and her own things. It's only when she is near death or not able to do certain things due to lack of knowledge that she'll finally call for help, although she'll never say no to food.
Finally, very few will be surprised to find that Emi is actually not as aimless as she seems. Her ambition to be successful still remains strong, and she means to attain it by any means necessary. Perhaps the last thing most people would realize about the normally energized Emi is that she will actually enjoy quietly eating or cuddling with all the calmness of the world alongside anyone that manages to break through the filter she holds up for the rest of the world. History:
Emi's earliest memory was that she joined the circus at the age of 4 years old, but she thought she always lived in Vyldermire. In reality, Emi is an otherworlder that came through the portal via the Hoptus Forest at that young age. Emilia Torrelli was born in an influential family that was part of the Amata Famiglia, the largest Mafia crime organization of the industrial city of largest crime organization in the industrial city of Montselice. Even though they knew that they were a part of the Mafia organization, she, like her mother, had never been actively involved in any of the crimes that her took place with her father, much less was told about them. At the age of 4 years old, she had seen the beginning of her first shoot out before being escorted away, never being told about it and threatened to be hit if she kept asking questions. All she knew was what her papa had always said: everything I do is for the family. Emilia couldn't complain about being gifted with expensive jewelry, the best food, the best clothing, the best classes; but when you lived with a father that carried that stressful burden of running the mafia business without a son to take over as consigliere, the dark days tended to mix with the good days. Much like her mother, Emilia grew up with simple rules in the house: Act like your eyes never saw anything, keep your mouth shut, and you'll never get hurt.
Despite the few times Emilia was able to spend time with her papa, she was definitely a daddy's girl. Emilia's mother made things hard with her strict way of turning her daughter into someone she wasn't, particularly because her mother felt the "chubby" girl was supposed to be skinny like the rest of the girls in society; she was molded to look and act like the rest of the girls were supposed to of the time period. Thus, Emilia was generally sad and passive, dressing modestly and accustomed to keeping appearances. Unfortunately, such restraint caused Emilia to grow restless and she swore that she was going to run away the moment she would turn 18. Until then, the daughter of a mafia boss desperately looked for reasons to smile, so she surrounded herself with laughter. Always carrying around a bag of M&Ms, Emilia would find escapism by watching comedy shows and cartoons on TVs, pulling playful pranks on people behind their backs, dancing, or listening to loud music that drowned out all the negativity.
Unfortunately, Don Torrelli's daughter couldn't commit to her own promise to run away at 18. She was forcibly betrothed due to her father's desire to form a bond of alliance with another mafia family; the engagement ring might as well have been handcuffs that locked her in this place she longed to escape from. Little did Emilia know that one act of free-spirited rebellion, which secured her freedom with the result of engagement being broken, would spiral into a catastrophe. Emilia's thoughts of running away were shaken to their core when she eventually heard that the Savaglio family was killed with the exception of Wes' brother, Andrea. Once again, she never learned of the details and wasn't allowed to ask. Nevertheless, Emilia was so broken-hearted over Wesley's death that she insisted to her father that he kill whoever did that to a family that was so close to them, as childhood friends of the family. It crushed her that her father did nothing, and it hurt her when her father refused to go their funeral. She never saw Wes again, never knowing that he actually survived. Being kept in the dark with nobody telling her anything as to why they couldn't go to the funeral caused Emilia to go into a depression, and the spiteful girl never forgave her father.
When Emilia regained strength to bounce back, she was committed to running away to take part in a comedy show and maybe even make a real audience laugh like Lucille Ball. Unfortunately, she didn't get very far. It happened to be the day that all the families gathered together, and the family-oriented Emilia decided to turn back if only to say goodbye.
Unfortunately, an explosion occurred during that family gathering that night, and Emilia died without ever being able to take part in a comedy show, without ever making her dreams come true to make people laugh.
Life, it seems, chose her to start anew. As her Vyldermire version passed away at the age of 4 years old, Emilia passed through the portal at the age of 4 to replace her counterpart. Here, her childhood would start anew with the explosion losing all memory of her past life, no memory of her first gunfight that she had witnessed around this age, and no longer burdened by restraint. All that she remembered was that her first name was "Emi."
Discovered immediately by people who felt initially hostile towards the out-of-sync aura that she, like other otherworlders, possessed initially, Emi's magic of laughter allowed them to at least be sympathetic to the young girl enough for them to drop her off at the nearest circus. The circus family instantly adopted her with a last name they came up with on their own, and Emi grew up with the people at the circus as the only family she could remember, particularly Aubrey's grandfather. She never knew about her otherworlder background that some of her circus members kept secret in hopes of keeping her safe from the hostile, untrusting world against otherworlders. Ever since the Cirque des Reves took her in, especially after finding her magic skill of making people laugh useful, Emi roomed with the hospitable people who lived at the circus, keeping her hidden from the people until her aura would synchronize. As she grew old enough to work at the circus, Emi's out-of-sync aura eventually became in sync enough not to cause any hostilities by the public, and she was able to perform in the circus.
One of the people she became close to was Aubrey, or Pom Pom, whom she held such a deep understanding for. She was always prone to playfully bothering him whenever she found him far too quiet or focused on whatever project he was working on. It was something she always looked forward to at the end of the day.
At least, until the year she turned 18, when he suddenly left.
Emi was SURE that he was going to come back. She grew up with the mentality that the circus was everything. It was, essentially, her whole life. She was sure that he was going to come back. Every month, she complained about the same thing, while stuffing her face angrily with junk food.
When the months drew to close to a year with him gone, Emi suddenly realized that Pom Pom really wasn't going to come back. He had made it to the world outside of the circus. He was.. successful. This was the part where Emi would feel proud of him, which she did feel in those few lingering moments of that realization, but that quickly set off her competitive nature and her green eyes blazed with fiery passion: Oh yeah?! Well if he could easily leave the circus and be successful, then so could she!
Unknowingly similar to her counterpart in the otherworld that she came from, the restless 18-year-old girl that had never set foot outside of the circus had finally left the circus to live on her own means, her own adventures, and to be successful!
Unfortunately, life outside of the circus was hard. The reality check hit her hard enough to make her realize that she didn't have anyone to give her food or even have a job to pay for shelter like her job did back in the circus. Unlike Pomme's passion for fashion design, Emi had no passion outside of the circus, so finding a job was even harder. Too ashamed and prideful to go back to the circus with an unsuccessful attempt, Emi's eyes blazed once more with the fiery determination to PROVE that she could do it!
This sadly meant that the 18-year-old ended up having to steal what she needed before running away after using her laughing spell, and possibly fighting off anyone that had a problem with her, effectively honing her skills in hand-to-hand combat.
Now, at 23 years of age, after living in the streets for 5 years, the thief continues to spread her humor in attempts to smile despite her share of regretful choices, terrible treatment in miserable jobs, and on-again/off-again heartbreaks - one, of which, she stole a boat from in efforts to make her own business as a smuggler. Still, her ambition to one day make something of herself remains strong; she could only hope to one day live a comfortable means, in a comfortable home, and without a worry about when her next meal would be.
