PersonalityPerfectionist and Peppy.
Driven but Delicate.
No time for bullshit.
AppearanceShe's neat and petite. Her 5 foot frame in always dressed in perfectly pressed dresses and skirts (never pants). She loves colour and pattern and really does have fun with her clothes as strictly ruled as they may come across. And she loves heels, and her glorious spun sunshine hair.
Okay, she might be a touch vain.
HistoryThe Best family is exactly as named. They are simply the Best. Marcheline, Marcy for short-it's a soft 'h', very French- was the fourth child in the family, but the firstborn. Her family have a form of closeness that some might find strange. They aren't exactly the traditional loving types, all warm and snuggly. The Bests have harder edges. They are strong and smart and driven. But they care too. They support each other and push each other to be everything they were meant to be.
You'd be hard pressed to find a little girl with bigger, bluer eyes than Marcheline. Strangers used to stop the family in the grocery store and fawn over those baby blues and the blonde curls that framed her face. She knew from a very young age that she was beautiful. It's not easy though, being designed to be perfect. Being raised as such certainly helps but it takes a toll. It's not uncommon for her to be upset with plans that don't go exactly her way. She'll get snippy in the moment, but in private she'll have a good cry about it. Temper tantrums and tears were never really welcome in the public eyes, she learned to save those kinds of outbursts for home.
In school Marcheline provided her best efforts. Anything less would have been unacceptable, but even then. She wanted to be the best, over achieving was her bread and butter. More than anything else, Marcy has always thrived on praise from her betters and admiration from her lessers. She was the picture perfect blonde, swanning around at the top of her class, but she was by no means an overly mean girl. Cross her and she'd provide a well placed bard or backhanded compliment, but she wouldn't go out of her way to be anything less than sweet. You catch more flies with honey after all. Besides, outside of her own projects she didn't bother too much with social circles. She'd rather be trying to charm you into providing one thing or another for a bake sale than making plans to "hang out".
She received her draft packet mere days after her seventeenth birthday and she was thrilled to see it. The man inside was exactly what she wanted, her perfect foil. Being the ultimate future housewife, she needed the ultimate man as her husband.
Lieutenant Vince Vanek was a golden boy for SOAR. Quickly climbing the ranks and providing an example of excellence that Tidewater could be proud of. They were a picture perfect couple. Well-suited and even better bred. But outside of the superficial there was still connect, Marcheline felt like she glowed on his arm. She truly felt like he appreciated her the way a husband was supposed to, and her to him.
The only downside was how often he was away on duty. At first she found it very difficult, she had trained all this time to be someone's perfect wife and there was rarely anyone around to husband. Gradually she realized that she needed something more to keep herself busy and stave off any loneliness. But a Best woman with a job? She didn't like the sounds of that. Instead she started volunteering with the Tidewater's Leucothea Society, a group that runs charity projects through-out the city. Marcy really threw herself into the work and quickly rose up the ranks and took on more and more responsibility. She was newly appointed as the Vice-President when tragedy struck.
Lieutenant Vanek was killed in action fight terrorists to the Trust. He was hailed as a hero in the press and his funeral was a production with full honours. That didn't make it any easier. She was crushed and it took a significant amount of time for her to recover. Instead of putting on a lesser showing in public she didn't leave her father's home for nearly a month, and after that it was only a gradual return to society.
Now, she's healed for the most part. She's been single about a year and a half and has fully gone back to work with the Leucothea Society again. Part of her is considering running for the president's position when it next comes up. But of course, that depends largely on her new husband If he keeps her busy enough she might even have to step down from executive council all together.
