Gemma is Dessut's mother, obviously the Matra preceding him until her death in 4510, when he was forced to kill her for reasons highlighted in his ref here [link]
Gemma was Born to Icka and MatraWarden and yada yada yada read through their stuff, if you read this junk you should know the tragic death of her mother by now, and if not, it's there.
Gemma is not particularly one of my more tragic of my characters, though she is one of the more antagonizing of the bunch (technically though she is deceased for most of the story) To put it simply, she's one of many crazy biotches that fuck shit up for everyone. At least she has an excuse for it though, considering all the shit she had to go through with her father.
In reality she is cold hearted and manipulative, despite looking deceptively innocent. She usually takes advantage of just about anyone and anything when given the chance. She has no problem making people suffer for her own benefit, especially those that she claims she holds dear to her.
Gemma's ears were cut off by Warden sometime after Icka's death when she disobeyed him and entered the jungle with her friends alone. While there a rogue Weaver by the name of Jag attacks them and kills everyone but her, Gemma luckily escaping before he had to chance to get to her. Immediately she runs back to the city to find her father, expecting some sort of comfort after such a frightening ordeal. Instead however, she plays victim to her father's now cold hearted nature, the stoxnoms in his brain and Icka's death seeming to shatter all hope of him ever recovering. Instead He punishes her brutally by having her ears clipped, maiming her beauty for life and spoiling his relationship with her from the start it seems. On top of being a total dick to Gemma, he practically rapes Channel till his disappearance, which didn't exactly set well with Gemma, Obviously. Going into a deep depression Gemma watches sadly from the sidelines are her fathers mind supposedly continued to waste away , the woman falling into a deep depression that stays with her all the way to adult hood.
After this Gemma takes over as Matra when she is 22 and makes the place more stable, though this time as things progress she of coarse, becomes no better then her father. In her life time she gives birth to 44 children, though only really acknowledging two of them, Dessut and Dennut. The others she ignores, and cares little about. Despite how horrible she treats Dessut, in reality Gemma sees him in her head as her only child, and she suffocates him mercilessly in a sick attempt to protect him. When really, all she is doing is pushing him to the breaking point. She forces Bacardi to leave, who is the very backbone of Dessut's stability. Without him around, Dessut once again becomes unstable, and his drug habits worsen (he takes drugs to kill the pain that he is constantly feeling through out his body due to the well accident) He also falls back into his whorish habits, leading his life back into a downward sprial, though he still basically runs the Matra for his mother, poor guy :/
Gemma oppresses her children, and uses Kimburlee as her stress outlet, which inturn, makes his life kind of sucky, though he brings it on himself being all TERRIBLY submissive and stuff. LOTS OF DRAMA ENSUES BETWEEN HIM, THE Weavers AND GEMMA, and she also badgers him about Dennut (her daughter) who sees Kimburlee as her father, due to him raising her since her mother pretty much ignored her. The only one of her children she even remotely raised was Dessut, which isnt exactly a good thing *COUGHCOUGHBADMOTHER*
How she dies and stuff can he read in Dessut's ref
She's so amazing! I really love her design and her hair is gorgeous! She seems a lot darker in colour than some of your other characters, but it makes her really beautiful. The earrings have a great effect to her character too~
