Siv Lofgren Bio by Amythest621 Siv Lofgren Bio by Amythest621
Boo! The title won't let me write her name correctly Llama Emoji-20 (Grumpy) [V1] Anyways: her name is supposed to be Siv Löfgren. And she's a skogsrå, which, for those of you who are unfamiliar with that creature: A skogsrå (or Huldra depending on where you are taking the legend from--Siv is Swedish so she's a skogsrå) is a Scandanavian forest spirit that can be both benevolent and malicious. They look like a pretty girl from the front, but their back looks like a hollowed out tree trunk with sticks, plants, fungi, and bugs calling it home. Generally, they also have an animal tail (usually a cow's tail but fox tails are also common). They are very prideful beings, and don't take kindly to insults. They are extremely strong (in one myth the skogsrå's human husband insulted her and she took a horseshoe fresh from the kiln--i.e. red hot--and straightened it with her bare hands without flinching), and will kill people if provoked. They do, however, take kindly to food left out for them (or offered to them) and compliments~

Siv was originally an adopt by StarletReader and I was immediately drawn to her and knew I had to have her~ ;v; Anyways! This is my terrifying and adorable baby. She's also really short, 4'10 or 147cm (but is really feisty if you couldn't tell XD), and has hips for days! She's pear shaped. ♥

Also: Wow I cranked this out pretty fast! Onto Marcus and Raleigh, then I should be finished with bios!

What a babe! I gotta say, the confusion over the Killer Style portion of the bio has provided a lot of entertainment. I love the contrast of her sweet demeanor and delivery of not so sweet things. Also, I find it adorable that she loves cooking but is somehow terrible at it.

:D The killer style is definitely something she would misinterpret XD I'm glad her sweet and terrifying demeanor came off! Don't mess with Siv or she'll mess you up  (in the cutest, bloodiest way ever) I HAS PRESENT  And it's not that what she's cooking  doesn't taste good or anything (it's pretty gourmet actually) it's just she's really... messy we'll say. As in she uses things like axes to chop her vegetables (and tables in the process)

lol ah. Definitely an understandable reason for not allowing her anywhere near their kitchen. You can only replace a piece of furniture so many times before you try something different.

Oh my- Siv is bae and she knows what's up, you better be generous with the lingonberries to the raggmunk.
I get so excited when I see swedish ocs or characters in general.
She's amazing, you're amazing, Everything is amazing! <3

Thank you~ and oh goodness I hope I don't butcher her then ;v; I try very hard to represent the cultures of my OCs as beautifully as I can (I tend to be partial to the Scottish/Irish tales cause those are my roots XD), so if you see something off feel free to call me out on it, I'm always open to constructive criticism and suggestions!
