She's my in-story god of resurrection, able to reverse death in the case of sudden, unnatural causes. I ended up buying her when my grandfather funded a doll of my choice, right after being diagnosed with stomach cancer in October of 2016. He wanted me to have something to remember him by, and as far as the character goes, she stands for both the joy in living and grief at departure.

Very petite and seemingly frail of frame, with youthful, unassuming features, a stark contrast to her outspoken personality. Her crimped hair falls at her back in a neat slate gray sheet, and styled with bangs and sidelocks to frame the pale olive complexion of her face. Ricia’s mouth is usually set in a thoughtful pout, while her gray eyes, almond-shaped and piercing, look almost haunted at times.
Attire: Customarily seen wearing a collared black dress decorated by a ribbon at the neck, with a matching black headband, thigh-high socks and loafers.

Traits: Wise beyond her (apparent) years, a seasoned veteran of life, with a deep reverence for all living things. Hates senseless fighting and works to help the world in whatever way she can. Highly opinionated, though somewhat jaded by the extinction of the Godtypes.
Personality: Ricia is a very collected and logical person who often puts aside her own needs, but not beliefs, to perform in the most efficient way possible. As someone constantly exposed to death, she has grown somewhat enured to bloodshed and violence, further hardened by the decimation of her own kind, but still deeply despises the perceived lack of empathy many others–humans, Godtypes and Remants alike–have developed over the years. While Ricia constantly denounces killing, she also admits that the world would be far better off without certain people in it, and often comes into conflict with her own personal creed to save everyone she can with her gifts.
She tries her best to keep her own personal issues from dominating her choices, but a long history of blame and loss has worn her down, and made her bitter, mostly towards herself. The words of families and friends of the dead she could not save still haunt Ricia as a perceived failure on her part, even though she knows it was impossible to save everyone. Her decision to hide away during the Theomachy weighs heavily on her conscience too, since the god she loved dearly seemingly vanished in his battle against the Remnants.
While altogether sensible and just, Ricia has withdrawn greatly into herself over the years, and no longer confides or relies on others as she used to. Despite this, she is not at all apathetic, and refuses to stand idle when she could be making a difference. If anything, all the times she has been hurt have made Ricia stronger.
Bringing the dead back to life requires both physical and metaphysical healing. Ricia is able to perform the first part by selectively reversing time on a lifeless body, although this limits her power to “unnatural” causes of death, such as murder or acute illness. The latter half, retrieving the consciousness, is an extremely delicate task, and can only be done using the "soul's" consent, and within 24 hours of the actual passing. After that, the person's "being" grows too far to retrieve, possibly delving into the unknowable after of death, since resurrections performed at the end of the time limit have resulted in partial memory loss, especially of events preceding the death.
Ricia possesses an extremely immense power, the likes of which the gods have never seen before. However, as her acts constitute an extreme transgression of natural law, her body suffers from stunted growth and various ailments, including numbness of the limbs and stabbing pains in her heart. More recently, she struggles with convincing her legs to function, and as a result has lost a great deal of mobility, as well as freedom.
Although Godtypes are beings which only perish when they wish for death, Ricia believes her deterioration is caused by the world's effort to expunge what it perceives as a blight or pathogen, an aberration that can't be left alone.
