  2. My character: Lena
    Age: 24
    Occupation: Secretary
    Hobbies/skills: swimming
    Appearance: Curly brown hair, hazel eyes, short
    Lena (pronounced like rain-a, but with an L) was born in the southernmost tip of the Florida keys. Her dad was stationed there as he was in the navy, but her parents soon separated after her birth. As her mother developed a love for the summery climate, she raised Lena in a lifestyle of drugs, promiscuous sex, and abuse. Her mother worked as a local escort and Lena was often subjected to meeting the man of the night. After graduating highschool, she went to the University of Florida on a hefty scholarship. Being academically gifted, Lena easily passed her classes with remarkably good scores. However, one day during her junior year she simply stopped attending classes and it was as if she dropped off the face of the earth. She took a bus to her new town where she was employed as a secretary for a large accounting company without so much as a resume.

  7. Name: Lilian Lancaster
    Age: 21
    Occupation: Librarian
    Hobbies/skills: Reading, writing and playing video games.
    Appearance: Long bright pink hair, blue eyes, pale skin, about 5'5, 134 lbs
    Bio: Lily was born in Ohio where she spent most of her time. She'd always been an A+ student and always did her homework, while at the same time having tons of friends and staying up all night usually playing video games or reading. Everyone knew she was like that, even the teachers, and nobody knew how she did it. You're either a total nerd, or a popular kid and she was both.
    After graduating from high school she moved to New York and there she became a librarian. No one knew exactly how she got hired at the library considering her bright pink hair or piercings but one thing everyone does know is that she is their favorite librarian ever.​
  8. Name: Robin Harper Von Haller - R.H.

    Age: 25

    Occupation: Detective\Criminal Investigator

    Hobbies/skills: Solve puzzles, read, play chess, play the violin, high IQ

    Show Spoiler

    Bio: Robin always was that weird kid. She didn't like the company of others, preferring to be alone all the time. Due to her high IQ and facility to learn, she skipped a lot of classes, entering the college and starting her career as a detective while still pretty young.
    Currently, her personality changed a lot. She's friendly and doesn't mind the company of others. She's one of the top detectives of the country, though she refuses to believe that. She says that she's far from being the best, since her investigation methods had put a lot of people in danger, cops and civils.
