Name: Naomi Bennett Age: 17 Race: Human Appearance: Biography: When Naomi was a child, her days were filled with endless wonder. She had a father and a mother who very much loved to fill her imagination with wonderful things like stories and other things children loved. Every day was a holiday and when the other holidays came about it was like a wonderland. Her parents helped her to believe everything was possible and the world could be a wonderful and fun place if one had the heart to see it. To see the Guardians. Yes, the Guardians were good friends of her parents. And it was very often that she and her parents visited the Guardians. These spirits became a family to her, teaching her the most important things in life. About Wonder, Hope, Fun, and much more. Whether she was hopping around with Bunnymund or being flown around by Toothiana, they always kept her entertained and kept her safe. But, everything changed for Naomi when she turned five. She had been playing in the Northpole on Christmas Day, celebrating a successful delivery North had made the night before and spending Christmas with all the people that mattered most to her. And yet, it was all ruined when a large dark shadow appeared before her. She remembered staring up at it, wide eyed and struck with fear. She remembered hearing her parents yell for her and rush to her. They moved to get in front of her just in time, but...what was supposed to happen to her happened to them. They were killed. And she would have been killed too. The shadow went after her again, but the Guardians were there. They protected her. They saved her life. They sent her back to her world, back to the other humans. A piece of her seemed missing without her parents there with her. And if she had any happiness or wonder left in her, that was all stripped away by her many foster homes. In her ten years of being in foster care, she has been with 27 families, most of which didn't really care about the kids and just wanted the money for it. The rest would seem so nice and when she would get used to their kindness and close knit home, she would be sent away again leaving her feeling like she lost a family all over again. In all of these families, she was often teased by the other foster children for her beliefs in things such as the Toothfairy, Santa, and all other Childhood heroes. Soon their teasing washed away her drive to believe in such things and she stopped believing. All those fun and wonderful memories she had of her time with the Guardians she now believed to be nothing more than dreams. Though, hidden away deep in her heart, she still always secretly hoped those memories were more than just that. Now, in her last home, these foster parents were the worst. They kept her locked in her room all the time, never let her do anything, and always belittled her by calling her names and yelling at her. One day, she came home from school to find them drunk and in their drunken haze, had continued to call her names and even threaten her, something they had never done before. And so, for her own safety, she grabbed what little things she owned and left. She knows the Foster Services are looking for her, but she refuses to go back to Foster care and lives in hiding on the streets. Other: She cuts herself. She's been doing this for a few years now, though since she has been living on the streets its gotten worse. She depressed and doesn't believe things will get any better for her, which is why she continues to harm herself. After all, no one's there to stop her from doing such a thing and tell her otherwise, right? ............................................................................................................................................................ "Naomi! Come back here!" Pippa laughed lightly, chasing her little five year old daughter through their home. She and Jamie had been married quite a few years now and their little daughter was their pride and joy. The pride and joy of anyone that met her actually. She was such a sweet little girl who would never hurt a fly. And maybe it wasn't just their own parenting that caused the little girl to become so sweet and caring. After all, they spent a lot of their time visiting the Guardians. It helped Naomi a lot, considering they each had something special to teach her. They taught her about dreams, fun, wonder, hope, and many other things! She had the best teachers and family anyone could ask for. Jamie had just walked down the stairs of their home, a bright smile on his face as he saw his wife playing with their daughter. Walking over to Pippa, he kissed his wife before bending down and picking up his daughter, who giggled. He smiled bright at her, ticking her side to make her laugh even more, "Ready to do see our friends? They're probably waiting for us now to start our Christmas fun." Naomi giggled all the more and smiled, nodding her head, "Uh-huh! All ready!" "Alright then. Let's get going. We don't want to be late and be put on the Naughty List like Jack." He joked, and soon, heading into the living room, pulled a snowglobe off of the shelf. This snowglobe was like the one that North used to get from place to place, and this one had been given to Jamie so he too could visit the Guardians when he wished, along with his family. He shook the snow globe and soon an image of the pole could be seen in the globe, before he tossed it. The portal appeared in front of them and little Naomi wasted no time squirming out of her father's grasp to go running into the portal and into the snowy outside of the North Pole. She giggled excited as her parents walked through as well, though after a moment, Naomi frowned as she looked around, not seeing any of the Guardians at first, thinking perhaps they had forgotten about them which of course saddened and disappointed the young girl. Yet, in an instant the smile was back on her face because Tooth suddenly swooped down from seemingly no where, lifting the girl up and flying her up high into the air, "There's my little button!" Naomi giggled and laughed all the more, squirming in Tooth's grasp, "No, Tooth, no!" Then she was laughing more as Tooth tickled her. Tooth brought her closer to the ground, and then seeing Bunnymund had finally arrive, coming up out of one of his rabbit holes, she dropped the little girl, having her land right in Bunnymund's grasp. Naomi smiled her green eyes bright as she hugged him, snuggling into his fur, "BUN-BUN!!!!"
