To describe her as beautiful would be slander, to describe her as passionate would be blasphemy. She was alight with the fire of injustice, a voice of the silent masses. She could destroy someone with her words alone, yet she was filled with a kindness rarely found except in the most precious of people. Her looks, she thought, were nothing special. However, everyone could see she was more than special, more than beautiful. With her dark eyes and full lips, she could break hearts.

She chose, instead, to break regimes. She delighted in the written word, poetry, prose, any literature she could get her hands on were devoured. Her pursuit of knowledge was never ending. She was Athena, capable of terrible things, equipped with terrible knowledge. She was Apollo, the fire of the sun in her soul. She was a warrior.
