Born in Rural Nevada, she was raised by a family whom loved her. She was a straight B student save her mother worked a bunch being a nurse and her father separated from her mother when she was around three years of age. She grew around a stepfather who emotionally abused her throwing manipulative weight around to get to the height of power in the house and undermine her self esteem. She couldn’t do anything about it but hide in her room and remain repressed especially with the way kids treated her in school. Constantly teasing her except for the few teachers who stood up for her. Very few times when she was about to get into trouble with a kid trying to fight her, being a large girl all she had to do is remind the kid that she would “sit on him” and he’d back down. Squaring her shoulders to do so and staring into his eyes usually did the trick. Otherwise usually people left her alone, though the first real connection to a friend after her best friend left was to her art teacher who tried to teach her everything she knew. She knew by the time she moved all about color schemes and balancing art. She also went as far as winning some art awards in school. She did best in able to copy figures and also make visions from her head appear on paper. When she was a child even though she was heavy set it wasn’t from sitting around. It was from eating the wrong foods and having a physical condition that slowed down her metabolism and made her monthly cycle more of a punishment than most women can endure. She did work to improve her art of the sword by herself and with her acquaintances despite this setback, She was able to move very dexterously and defeat most opponents especially if she had a long enough weapon. She was also able to sneak attack very well in these games. In school she learned a few survival tools that stuck such as boiling water, Finding the north star, and eating pine nuts in order to survive. That may work well in Nevada but not so well in Detroit. She also knew how to ward off bears and rattlesnakes. She grew up in a ranch house so she knew how to feed horses how to walk them. And how to train dogs, and care for cats and fish as well. She never learned about the pack mentality of dogs yet because of her introverted nature.
Usually for fun she stayed at home and played video games, watched movies and read books. When she felt the urge to she drew off of the movies she watched and that lightened her heart. When she turned 14 her mother came down with cancer and after a battle and an early lisence gained her mother died from it spreading to the spine, a year later. Only a few months passed before her stepfather started dating his ex wife. She was manic depressive and due to her nature and his overbearing one they got into a fight in which he ended up breaking a window in a car. She called her father in Detroit scared after this and he brought an end to it by getting her a ticket for her and her belongings to get to Detroit. Her father was working as a cop up there in the suburbs but he didn’t have enough money in paying off debt but to live in the bad part of town. Moving in there she had to leave her friends and her life. She became more interverted and started to draw more disturbing imagery to get rid of her angst. Her father was always too busy putting food on the table to take note, as her health was slowly getting worse and her grades were declining because of her depression from her mother’s death and having to move away from home she lived at for 15 years. Now she just turned 17 and is entering school. Her father has given her a healthy air of parinioa, and has taught her a couple moves to defend herself from anyone who tries to bother her.
Her friends influence got her into practicing some minor witchcraft. And since she felt it fit her better than roman catholisism and her mother was dead she went with that line of thought. She keeps it as secret as her mother being dead. Knowing that being a witch would make a negative mark on her status.
