Name: Illiyana Juniper Jasi.
Race/ethnicity: Human- African american/ indian/ irish
Many people would say she has a very vibrant persona. She is very tolerant and self controlled when at work. When dealing with owners who are half hysterical with fear of losing their beloved pets, she needs to be.
She can accept any one, finding it crude to judge people for their religion, race, or background. Her mother's family is to thank for that, due to how they treated her father, who was not an indian, and alienated her mother for not marrying the man of their choice.
Otherwise, many will find that she has quite the temper. They tend to be surprised when she just short of pounces on them like a tiger they hit a raw nerve. Her friends often push her to lose her calm, simply amused by the way her Indian accent floats to the surface, and how she absolutely refuses to swear. Both results of her upbringing no doubt.
She tends to be a bit on the strange side, however. Some will recall instances when they have walked down a completely normal street to suddenly have her refuse to go further, begging to take an alternate route, or even become extremely upset to the brink of tears.
Other times the usually agreeable and open minded woman will take an instant disliking to a person, no matter how attractive or agreeable they first seem.
She suspects that she may be an empath due to the fact that some places affect her emotions so much that she feels she has lost control. It is something she fears people will look upon her with derision if she confides in them. Yet she knows that this is often a warning of sorts, possibly just a heightened sense of intuition.
She also suspects that her intuition also warns her of the true character of a person. Or rather their intentions towards her. She does not know.
These aspects of herself do not disturb her. In fact, even though she feels others would mock her for it, she puts her trust in them completely.
Motivation/ goal in life: She hopes to run her own clinic one day. But otherwise, she is quite content with her life.
She was quite involved in the daily life of her father's side of the family. She grew up in a small town in florida, next the sea shore. The sound of it she loved her home.
The way the Banyan trees looked like they could belong in an ancient legend, the way the waves would lull her to sleep, the coconuts that fell from the palm trees.
The people she'd not been so enamored with. Most of her life she'd been picked on by her peers, ostracized by half of her family, and as she grew into womanhood, approached by the opposite sex in less than appealing manners.
She went to school to study biology and become a veterinarian in Connecticut, and that is where she has stayed since.
She has a slim, toned build from being athletic for most of her life. She is petite standing at 5"1 with small breasts, slim waist narrow shoulders, but her thighs are thick from years of competing in track all through out her high school years.. Many underestimate her strength. Her speed is even more impressive. Quick and agile, she has an ability to squeeze into impossibly tight spaces at a moment's notice.
She inherited her bronzed mahogany from her father, while inheriting her facial features from her mother. She has large brown eyes, full lips, a narrow nose, and dark, long curly hair that grows to her waist which she prefers to keep in a braid. Over all she has a graceful, yet strong feel to her features.
She tends to wear loose, light clothing, and is quite comfortable with venturing outside in her scrubs. Often many will see her wearing a pleasant, cordial smile. Yet amusingly, many will say that she tends to be very beautiful when she pushed to anger. Which is, when she is out of work, very easy to make her.
