Mate's Emotions

An old version of mate (and Ara) from IMVU
      Juliana "Mate" Marie Hollow is a ridiculously complex character.  She has been through two roleplays, literally been to hell and back on multiple occasions, and is the most messed up of all my characters.  I have a certain love of Mate because I've been role-playing with her for over 5 or 6 years straight!  She has had the most time to grow, have new experiences, and expand.  The bio I wrote a year back now is really outdated, but does briefly talk about her best (or worst) features--her emotions.  Mate has a complex story involving the fact that she has 6 separate emotions which manifest in a physical way inside of her head.
        The first thing to note is that different characters call Mate by different derivatives of her name at different times in her life, depending on situation; each emotion has a name attached to it.  Also, mate's eyes change to reflect which emotion is most prevalent at that moment and is essentially trying to take control of the "wheel" for mate's body. 
         The stronger first three (Red, Gold, and Purple) are based on her left side, where she controls fire, as fire and those emotions are based on a firey passion.  The other three (Blue, Grey, and Yellow) are based on the water left side which are more easily put aside and calm.  It's complicated and I try not to think about it to hard, but in an upcoming plot, other characters will be entering Mate's mind (in an Inception sort of way) and accessing her "Mind Place" essentially.
         Each emotion will have a unique appearance based upon the "ideal" version of mate in terms of the emotion--all look mostly the same with the same features.  Then, mate has a wide assortment of powers that, to be honest, at first had no real rhyme or reason other than "she's a mutant like Lea soooo" but now that I've expanded her further, I've made it so that each emotion has reign over one of her particular abilities.  For example, Mate's mother, Marie, was able to calm nearly anyone with her soothing words.  This genetically passed to Mate.  Her control of fire from her father.  Etc. etc.  Finally, I talk about the physically place they exist in, so basically what their room of the "Mind Place" looks like!
     Sorry if that's a lot of information buuuutttt here we goooooo. ^^

Age: ~29 years old.
Logic and conciousness Real world
Mate At first glance appears to be regular mate, but when approached, her animal features manifest and she looks demonic with all features turning pure black--Lioness-Like fur and ears, wolf like claws and fangs, one wing (long story), and snake-like eyes and tongue.

Age: ~22-30
Swordfighting and Language skills Her ship on a vast endless sea of adventure surrounded by piles of gold and rum.

Water The bar in Tortuga with all her family as the audience to her song and dance routines.
Juls One of the "twins" with Yellow, she looks young and vulnerable. Her hair is long and unkempt and her skin is covered in cuts as if being torn apart, however she's dressed in an expensive dress from her foster parents. She looks constantly sick and is usually curled up and unwilling to move with her grey, lifeless eyes downcast.
Age: ~10
Speed A dark asylum cell like the one Mate has been stuck in before. The names of everyone she has killed--directly or indirectly, are carved into the walls around her.
Julie Grey's "twin", she appears about the same age and similar, however her hair is cut short poorly. She usually wears rags and is almost always shaking.
Age: ~10
Speed Beside the throne of the Demon Lord in hell, surrounded by demons. Her room changes depending on who enters, reflecting a memory of when they were scared of said person.

P.s. I realize I don't have any more current drawings of mate, so maybe I'll work on some soon, maybe including these other guys!  Maybe even in a livestream!
