V.O.C. of the People
After so long away from her family home, Avi has discovered that she misses having arms. Several weeks of subconscious dreams, though none that she can recall, her weird has taken it upon itself to grow her new arms.

Avinnia was born the second daughter of the Elon family. The Elon family come from the Dutch nobility of Denmark. They live on Iceland, running the city of Reykjavik. She was born a normal, human child, but to the dismay of her parents began to sprout feathers by the of six. These feathers were easy to hide in the beginning, but by twelve her arms had mutated into wings and her feet were beginning to change into talons.
At first they just shut Avinnia away from the world, and she continued to grow older, and more neglected. By the age of fourteenth, she begged to be free, from her cage, a single bedchamber that had been all she had seen in four long years. Her parents denied her request. wanting freedom, she attempted to escape.
When caught her parents realized they were not going to be able to keep their hideous daughter hidden from the world forever. Instead of letting her be free, however, they decided that she would have to be killed.
On the eve of her next birthday, she was allowed to go out onto the closed off property. Unknowing to her parents, the man that they had hired to kill her was not so willing to kill the misunderstood girl. Together they faked her death, easy enough as he was supposed to dispose of the body in a place that would never be found. Instead he aided Avinnia in her escape from her parents and from Iceland.
To her dismay, everywhere she has gone since, she has been met with fear and hostility. In her heart, all Avinnia wants, underneath it all, is the same thing we all want, to be accepted and loved.
