Name: Mei Zhao
Age: 19
Caste: Two
Occupation: Semi-Famous Pianist
Appearance: Her dark hair and eyes are the perfect match for her pale skin and pastel clothing. To the casual observer, she seems sweet as can be. But what's hidden behind her smile?

Description:

What people don't know about living in glamour is what happens when the cameras aren't watching.

Growing up, Mei had always known she was lucky. She was told it every day. She was lucky she was a Two. Lucky her father was so rich and famous. Lucky she was so beautiful. Lucky. Lucky. Lucky. She'd learned pretty quickly to appreciate everything she had, and to make the most of every moment, because who knew when opportunity would knock? Mei had been raised on New Asian beliefs of honor, strength, and most importantly: obedience. She'd become the perfect daughter, the perfect student, the perfect person in all situations.

But that didn't stop her father from hitting her. He'd often get angry, especially when he had just come home drunk from a party with his famous friends, and his first instinct had always been to take it out on her. Mei had always thought it was her fault. She'd always felt that if she was just a better daughter, if she could take the stress off her father's shoulders, maybe things would get better. She tried to become a model to provide extra money. Her father banned her from doing so, however, in fear of other people seeing the bruises that ruined her skin. So she started learning piano, knowing that the only way she could be a pianist as a Two was to become famous. And she had! She'd become a national hit, and she'd kept on her fake smile the entire time, successfully fooling every one of her happiness in her career. But . . . it wasn't what she wanted. And it still didn't stop the abuse.

Love was something that Mei had never known. She'd had people admire her, sure. But she'd never had a true friend, and with her mother away on trips all the time, and her father either away doing famous things or at home taking his anger out on her, she'd never been truly loved. The very word was alien to her. Mei had never felt worthy of love, anyway . . . if she was just a better person, she would definitely have it, but that didn't stop her from yearning for it. Maybe that was why she decided to enter the Selection. Maybe she entered because she wanted to get away from her family and fruitless job. Maybe it was because if she won, there would be no way her father could find a reason to hit her, because what could make her a better person than being Queen?

Do you think you could include a bit about her personality in the description? Just two or three sentences would be fine. Then it should be good!

Approved. We're not really worried about which providence the girls are from since we don't know all 35, so you don't need to add that. Also, if you want to have a Face Claim for Norah, you can post in the Face Claim topic, but it's not required. :)

If you want a physical representation of her, then yes! But again, it's completely optional, so if you don't want to then you don't have to.

Name: Thedasia Reynolds
Age: 18
Caste: Five
Occupation: Freelance Artist
Appearance: Curly brunette and blonde hair, carmel skin, and a colorful fashion sense perfectly match Thedasia's artistic heart. She's oozing with personality, and there's no way you can't talk to her once you see her.

Description:

To be clear from the start: Thedasia is not some sob story. She's not some helpless girl who needs a man (or woman, she's not one to choose) in her life to make her feel better. She could stand to have more money, yeah, but she isn't terribly poor, at least not for a Five. There's not much to complain about, in her opinion, though that's not to say there haven't been bad episodes in her life. Still, Thedasia is one to see the positive, and the positive was that her life has been going pretty great.

As a Five, Thedasia had always known she was going to do something creative. She'd never been much of a singer like her mother or sister, and she'd rarely been able to play a measure on the piano without it sounding like someone had accidentally leaned on the keys. But she'd found out pretty early on that her real talent was with art.

She knows everything about artists such as Picasso and Monet, and everything around her has always been an inspiration to draw. When she'd turned ten, her parents had saved up enough money to buy her a pastel paint set, which has been her prized possession ever since. Thedasia paints everything, from landscapes, to people, to flowers, to even abstract art. Her favorite type of art is paintings that looked as if the paint had dripped while drying, the colors blending together in ways nobody could have ever imagined them to. Painting is an outlet, and a great source of money, especially when a few Fours and Threes became interested in her work in the past few months.

Still, while Thedasia isn't usually concerned with love, something about the Selection drew her in. Maybe it was how hot Prince Prescott was. Maybe it was the beautiful palace he lived in. Maybe it was the compensation. Or maybe it was the fact that nobody seemed to think she'd enter. Whatever the case, Thedasia did enter, and now she's off to the palace for a shot at the Crown Prince's heart.

Thedasia, kind but a bit feisty, has always been up for a challenge, and this is no different. The Selection is a new opportunity that's quickly making its way into her life, and she's more than ready for it. While she isn't confident she'll win, she sure hopes she has a chance. Especially since she's now a Three, which means being an artist, her one dream since childhood, isn't going to be an option if she loses.
