--- ASSIGNMENT ✚
astute ✚ having or showing an ability to accurately assess situations or people and turn this to one's advantage. // Growing up in a socialite heavy family, Delphine's parents (and older siblings too) taught her how to seize opportunities where they could be found. Despite still being too young to really use this the way her family does, Delphine still stays alert to her surroundings. She listens to people and finds out where there are weak spots, mainly for future reference for when there is a need to cash in on a favor or two.
industrious ✚ diligent and hard-working. // Being the youngest of three children, Delphine has learned the hard way that the only way to get recognition and attention from her family and peers was to earn it. She has seen the way her father has made his career from scratch and wishes to do something similar, but in her own way such as following her passion of ballet or branching out in a career no one in her family has gone in.
pragmatic ✚ dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations. //
outspoken ✚ frank in stating one's opinions, especially if they are critical or controversial. //
passionate ✚ showing or caused by strong feelings or a strong belief. //

Delphine could easily remember the first day she had met a Seer. She remembered the event in vivid detail as she didn't want to forget it. It had been what her parents deemed to be a family outing, despite the fact that none of the family actually enjoyed it; each had better places to be. In the semblance of being a normal family however, they did an excursion once in a blue moon. That day had been to a boardwalk in Paris. Delphine was sitting atop of her father's shoulders and had spotted the booth that boasted a fortune teller. The young girl (at the time) had gravitated towards a liking of the more mystical side of magic and had exclaimed loudly that she wanted to get her fortune told. The brunette even remembered the vague fortune that she had been told, one to do with a great upheaval in her life.
When you're six years old however, one does not think about great upheavals. After what Delphine thought was a 'great upheaval' in her life (aka moving to England) happened of course, the one thing that Delphine both loved and hated about that day was that the fortune teller had been right.
