Tiona: Reference Sheet by honeyOdew
Tiona: Reference Sheet
For :iconthe-salt-islands-oct: 

The year is 1910, it has been 14 years since Madagascar was brutally annexed by France. They exiled the queen and keep successfully repressing every rebellion. Life is harsh and the future is bleak for the Malagasy people.
Aia, a girl with exceptional spiritual tie-in picks up a unique disruption from far away, on the other side of the world. Yearning for her country's freedom, she is told by the spirits of her land that if she desires a future for her people, she needs to head to where the disruption occurred and play her part in the major event that is about to go down. So along with her musician husband, Tiona, she makes way for the Salt Islands...

Bio

Tiona Razafinandrasana is born in Antananarivo in 1882 to a family of music lovers. He is initiated to the valiha at a very young age and often follows his father’s band on tours across the island. He first meets Aia during one of them in the city of Mahajanga. He is 13 when the second war occurs: his father, uncles, cousins and numerous of his friends die in the war, rebellions and repressions of the following years. He starts a band and meets Aia again in Antananarivo in 1904.They get married four years later when she comes back from her studies. Unbeknownst to him, one of his already struggling younger sister, unable to handle the oppressions of the indigeneity regime will end up committing suicide in 1910. Not long after this, Aia is tasked with going to the Salt Islands. 


Personality

Tiona is an all-around nice, sociable person although, he also has a reserved side and doesn’t like making himself stand out. But he will try his best to stand up against injustice and inequality when it happens in front of him. He is very good with children and generally taking care of others. He loves music and how it can connect people and intimately convey emotions. More than music, he loves his country and its people, having seen most of it thanks to his tours.

He hates France and French people for what they’ve done and what they continue doing to Madagascar. When frustrated, he will smoke or drink. Or both. 


Strengths/Weaknesses

Tiona has a lot of hours of music playing behind him and has developed his own avant-gardiste style. He usually has a laid-back, patient attitude toward problems. He likes trying to come up with creative solutions. Physically, he is not very impressive. He is rather weak, really.


Tiona views himself as inapt to take action and make a difference when it really matters and he hates it. In one deep corner of his mind, he questions the meaning of his musical skills and fears he’s just really useless.

For :iconthe-salt-islands-oct:

Bio

Born in 1887, her real name is Alma and her maiden name is Bailly. She is the daughter of a French trader and a Malagasy Sakalava princess. The nickname ’Aia’, which means ‘where’, was given to her by her housemaids because she was very fond of playing hide’n’seek - especially the hiding part.


Born two years after the first French-Malagasy war, Aia grows up during a tense period and suffers discrimination from some of her peers. When the second war breaks out in 1895, she is moved to the neighboring island of La Réunion and only comes back five years later, when the Madagascar is annexed and the Sakalava region submits. When 18, she leaves the island again for her studies and comes back in 1908 and gets married to Tiona. After the spiritual disruption is picked up from the Salt Islands, all the Malagasy elders and sages agree she is the one who should be sent there.


Personality

Aia is in good spirits. She is jaunty, positive and rosy. It’s not always easy and it especially wasn’t at first. Tiona is one of the first people to help her and inspire her to stay bright, just before she left for La Réunion. She is very curious and always hungry for new discoveries, experiences and encounters. She hates conflict and has distaste for people who think themselves above others.


Strengths/Weaknesses

Aia is a very smart and cultivated lady. She speaks Malagasy, French, English, Spanish, Portuguese & Italian (ha-ha-ha :dummy: ) and studied medecine. She also has a keen interest in history.

Her spiritual gifts keep her connected to the nearby spirits at almost all times, they keep her constantly aware of her surroundings and also teach her a lot of things.


Aia has some physical endurance and dexterity but she is still just a human girl, vulnerable to most attacks. Usually confident and optimistic, the weight of the hopes and responsibility placed on her this time secretly scares her and leaves her psyche fragile.

I am, currently, but a Business student. It's entertaining and interesting enough.
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and I want to live off of it, someday because I just love visual arts so much.
At first, very heavily influenced by Manga & Anime, I am now slowly experimenting and trying to find my own style.

Thank you for passing by. Hope you liked some of the things you saw :)
