Tinker Bell is a blazing bundle of energy and enthusiasm, vivacious. She's a Tinker Talent fairy and it shows through in everything that she does. She can't stand to sit still and is constantly working on a new project. She's highly curious, fascinated with new creations as well as Lost Things, even when she really shouldn't be. She's talkative and feisty too. And her temper... oh does she have a temper. Her fuse is short, but typically so is her anger. One massive explosion and a red face and it's over and done with. Things like failed tinker projects are a sure way to get her fired up, but so is unfairness or picking on her friends. Despite that little temper problem, she's quite friendly and open, and reaches out to lend a helping hand... or hammer. Because she loves to fix things. Her quick mind is always looking for a way to improve on how things already are and if something's broke, she's in a hurry to fix it. Heck, she gets antsy if there's nothing broken to fix. She's so full energy that she almost never sits still, flitting around, gesturing with her hands and fidgeting.
Are you tired yet? Tink is nothing if not lively, but there's much more to her than her energy. She enjoys taking a moment to enjoy some chamomille tea (with extra honey and milkweed whip!) with her friends. Although her greatest joy really does come when she's tinkering, a hard won victory for the fairy who once wanted a different talent than her own. She may be rash and impulsive, but when it comes to fixing things, Tink is all business. Heaven help the poor soul who disrupts her work when she's in the zone. Building things is something she takes seriously and when a project doesn't turn out how she thinks it should, or heaven forbid doesn't work!! she has epic, overblown meltdowns over it, ranging from distraught to angry, to self-depreciating to FURIOUS. In fact, all the other fairies know her as a hot head and just brace for the expected meltdown when things take a turn for the worse. But they also know that she's clever, insanely creative, sassy and caring, not to mention a rare talent.
But lest you think she's always angry, such is not the case. Rest assured, she's blunt and direct. At least, unless she's trying to wheedle her way out of trouble or into getting something she wants. Even so, she's friendly and sunny. She might not have a knack for working with animals, but she still thinks Cheese is adorable and even befriends her pet firefly Blaze with almost no difficulty at all. There's a fond understanding that while Tink has a short fuse, she's also got a big heart and the best of intentions. Although if she's got a failing other than her temper, it's that she often shifts blame onto other people. Typically it takes a huge disaster to get Tink to realize the error of her own ways and take ownership of her own failures. (Which is not to be confused with the self-blame that is part of her ranting when a project fails.) And she has just a teensy problem following the rules. As in, she never does. Rules are just silly suggestions that can be overridden by great ideas or out of control curiosity, which she has in spades.
Abilities: Nothing too magical, per se. Except some amazingly gifted skills for creating and crafting. Tink stands out from the other tinkers for her knack for inventing new, unknown tools and gadgets, as well as using and fixing lost things. (Lost things= human stuff that washes up on Neverland). Flying is also her thing, it's what the wings are for.
Alignment: Sosyne, because while Tink isn't always angry, she does manage to blow her stack often and in spectacular ways. (Not to mention her sister is Periwinkle and the color match made me smile.)
Other: Most people only hear jingling bells when fairies talk. Presumably any non-human/magical girl/animal talking/etc people could understand her. Or just plain ole telepathy.
General Sample: At the TDM
Emotion Sample: Explosive Temper, Prompt A
Questions: Since Tink requires pixie dust to fly, is there some way she can get her hands on it, or will flight now be powered by emotions? (After all, it does taking thinking happy thoughts to be able to fly too.)
