Seraphine Klarwien Tse. Spooky, chic and unnaturally dual voce chanteuse, Tse is Klashka’s partner in art and most treasured friend. Also laden with student loans from an extensive education, Tse is determined to earn her artistic freedom to compose for a esoteric audience who will dig her sound. “Not everyone needs to love me” is Tse’s internalized motto she grumbles every time she bends her back over yet another pop lyric for the masses.

Goth is all the rage in the transition-modern age of reconciliation of modern and traditional, but is wasn’t in the timeline of Superfical’s post-modern age of the 80’s and 90’s. Goths were associated with criminals of the clandestine sort; Pied Pipers who would drive your mentally fragile teen into suicide. While there are a few bad apples in every group, pretty much all a Goth wants is left alone with their thoughts and express themselves in art to esoteric groups. The dark clothes and maker up is a mask that says, “Hello, leave me alone.” Goth is dark introvertism with a yen for the Subconscious.

With her moon pal complexion and wild hair, Tse is the natural choice for the frontman of the band that bears her namesake. She prefers to share the spotlight as part of an ensemble: Klashka is the Raver-Grunge Goth, Jen is the Gothabilly, Sigrid is the Faerie Goth, and Tabby is the pastel pink odd one out.

Tse scares Tabby. Tabby is no stranger to Goths in arts-based high school, but Tse is Goth amplified. Tse has an eerie habit of spacing out and making her eye glow is her mind wanders. Tse is human, but like Mikka, possesses certain properties that are the mark of the gods. Tse is normally really good at hiding her trances, but since Tabby is working so close to the shamaness, she witnesses behaviors outsiders aren’t privy too. Any repetitive action sends the mind into a meditative state, be it chanting, churning butter, spinning wool, drawing ( especially pointille) or composing. A good space out yields great stories, leaving Tse luminescent with tone poems.
