'Clemence the Menace', she was called, a petite Terracoon with a giant penchant for trouble. As all small children know, grown-ups are gullible and easy to fool. Even the worst child is a cherubic angel in front of elders (unless they are especially dim-witted or especially confident, or perhaps a mixture of both). It was easy to get away with the most dastardly of acts if one had brains or a sweet face. Clemence, to the detriment of all other youngsters, had both.
Considered nothing but lovely from her parents, out of their sight she transformed like Jekyll to Hyde. Often seen walking demurely beside her parents with a bright pink bow, one could scarce believe that the Terracoon that had adopted a confident swagger and was slinging rotten apples at a defenceless peer was one in the same. Clemence often hid her bow (which she had a wide vocabulary to describe, some choice words being 'ugly' 'useless' 'stupid' 'pathetic') before haring off on an escapade; without it, she was often mistaken for a boy.
Clemence was not particularly spiteful, nor was she mean; she just had a cheeky, adventurous streak that found its delight in pranking and tricking others. Elaborate games of Truth or Dare (mostly Dare) were her very favourites. However, Clemence was spectacularly fearless (she liked to think of herself as akin to a land pirate, in fearlessness) and as a result, no one could best her at her own game. 'I double triple dare you to play with Clemence' often accompanied the death knell of a Truth-or-Dare game among the milder youngsters.
An unfortunate Irion by the name of Chiron seems to be besotted with the mischievous Terracoon; what Clemence makes of him is yet unknown. He has the markings of a bluejay and is easy to spot, often flittering behind Clemence as she makes a mad dash to hide from her parents, or as she scampers to a high vantage point so that she can spit on passers-by. No one quite knows if he is her partner in crime, her minion, or just a very unlucky fellow caught up in the grand schemes of a tiny Terracoon.
