Hello! This is the first time I made a post on CR, and my first time to enter the OC contest after having been an observer for some time now... so I'm pretty nervous, haha. Well, here's my entry!

Entrant's Name: Janelle
Entrant's Website: Tumblr

Character's Name: “Harmony” / Therese Chanson (real name)
Age: 17
Occupation: (Singing) Trapeze Artist (secretly)

Brief Physical Description:
Therese is fairly lean and athletic, but hides it under the puffed dress that she wears regularly. She wears glasses only because she believes it helps hide her secret. Her every-day dress is a contrast to her outfit as “Harmony” - it’s much lighter and more presentable. Compared to her dark dress, her circus outfit is bolder, showcasing her confidence and talent onstage.

Brief Personality Description:
Therese is very cheerful and optimistic, and she does her best not only to make the audience happy, but the people around her as well. Though well-known as “the trapeze artist who sings”, and a favorite among the frequent circus-goers, Therese prefers to keep the attention away from her if possible - not because she’s shy, but the pressure and expectations from being a star make her feel insecure about her “regular self” off stage and how people might perceive her. She’s also a modest person, and she believes there are others who deserve the attention more than her.

As “Harmony”, Therese would focus on exhibiting her talent and strength, and she concentrates almost as if there were no audience watching her – just her trapeze partner, Peace, and herself, Harmony. This has become part of her routine when she practices and performs, which also means she would sometimes find herself being completely lost in her own world, and someone has to snap her back to reality. Because of this, she lets her guard down quite easily… and with her secret to keep, she finds it too risky to talk to people, so she mostly keeps to herself, even when around her fellow circus performers.

When she’s not practicing, or out promoting the circus, Therese likes to write songs and poems, some (of which) she has performed on stage as part of her act.

Connection to canon characters (if applicable):
A friend, who then becomes a client of Ryuunosuke's.

Brief Background:
Ryuunosuke and Susato took an interest to the circus when Therese happened to be handing out flyers outside of the courthouse. Sherlock and Iris had heard about the circus before, and with an eager Susato and a curious Ryuunosuke, they decided to take their friends to the circus. When Iris asked if Therese was part of the circus performers, she quickly denied it, saying she “merely hands out flyers to promote the circus”. Sherlock was quick to point out as well that since she’s wearing glasses, she couldn't possibly be a performer, and Therese agreed.

After seeing the show, the group ran into Therese again, recognizing her as the girl who handed out the flyers earlier. Iris ran up to her and, having figured out that Therese was the one up on the trapeze, congratulated her for an amazing performance. Surprised and happy to hear someone praise her for the first time ”as Therese”, she thanked them... realizing too late that she had completely revealed her secret. Since then, they became her first few friends outside the circus that she felt she could trust.

One night, Therese’s trapeze partner, Peace, was found dead with a stab wound on the back. The scene of the crime was on stage, and it happened during their performance. To be more specific, as Peace was about to swing towards Harmony, the stage lights were suddenly turned off. After a while, with the crowd in panic, the lights shone on stage again and all eyes laid on Peace, who was on the ground, dead. Harmony was still hung up in the air by her legs, with her arms reaching down as if she had just let go of someone, or some thing. She was charged of the murder.

With no other leads, Ryuunosuke and the others decided to investigate the circus… perhaps there was someone who worked with the knife throwing acts...

Trivia:
- Therese’s name is only a personal choice, but I chose Chanson, which means “song” in French.

- She’s always fascinated when she sees someone showing their impressive talents, whether it be from the performing arts, or even a simple deduction - that’s why she was impressed when Sherlock quickly pointed out her glasses and concluded that she couldn’t be a performer. But she also couldn’t believe he fell for it.

- Adding to that, she was extremely scared and intimidated by Barok at first, but after seeing his leg slam she wonders if she could recruit him to be her next trapeze partner.


I hope I did this right... Thank you for taking a look!
