RedPath | 562 comments Name: Chysanta Emily Greene

Age: 15

Appearance: Her hair is the color of dark wood and falls a little past her shoulders, hiding her tiny ears from the world's scrutiny. Her part is down the middle, so no side bangs (although she's considering it.) She's kinda fair, but only because she inherited her father's Russian complexion. But her face is never flushed, unless she's embarressed or mad. She's rather proud of the striking contrast of her hair and skin, but wishes that her eyes were some extraordinary color. They're hazel, brown towards the pupil and green towards the edges. Her nose is long and wrinkles up like a yawning lion's nose whenever she crinkles it. Her lips are pale and blend in with her face. Chrysanta's always tempted to wear lipstick make them stand out. But she's not much of a make up wearer.

Chrysanta has a thin, sleek build. She doesn't have very strong muscles, but she makes up for it by being light-footed and swift. In fact, she often got in trouble when she was younger because she always sneaked off when her parents took her to a store. She's about 5'4''-5'5'', so her height is average. But she posture is kinda bad, so she looks shorter.


Things you know about the character so far:

Chrysanta is more of an optimist, if anything. She generally sees the glass as half full and finds something to smile about. She cherishes her life considerably more than most teenagers. The benefit of the doubt is her life's guideline as she tries her best to find something good about everyone. But don't be fooled. She's not that trusting and she's definitely not an idiot. Though, you couldn't tell from her grades. Chrysanta has major organizational issues. She can't keep things from getting mixed up in her head and in her binders. So, everything she does has to be linear, step-by-step.

She's also a little paranoid. As soon as she entered highschool, Chrysanta took a couple self-defense classes, wanting to be able to protect herself in case she was in trouble.

Despite her paranoia and disorganization, Chrysanta has a high self-esteem and a strong sense of justice. She will tell someone if they're making her mad and won't stand by if someone is trying to make her, or anyone else, their doormat. Unfortunately, this comes at a cost. She's pretty cocky sometimes, and also treads onto sensitive matters brazenly and without thought. These things always blow up in her face, so she's trying to change this about herself. But when it comes to emotional matters, Chrysanta is a lot more helpful.

As for boys, she tries not to pay much attention to them. She minds them as much as any teenage girl whose hormones are starting to kick in, but not much beyond that. she also feels that her grades suffer enough from her lack of organization, so it would be stupid to throw a boy into the mix.

Likes: oreos (doesn't discriminate on flavors), riding her bike to places, black and white movies, eyes, converse, day-dreaming, sneaking around like a ninja, music, witty comebacks.

Dislikes: tomatoes, guys who are pigs, awkward silences, remakes (music, movies, anything), frequent liars, adverblasting, petty insults, loud noises.

Things you know about the character's past:

Chrysanta lived in Birmingham, Alabama for the first couple of years in her life. All she really remembers is that it was hot most of the time and she loved it. The Greenes moved to Baltimore, Maryland when she was seven years old and, although it wasn't sweltering hot like Birmingham, she grew to love the city.

As a young girl, she had short hair and was often mistaken for a boy. Now she's really sensitive to names such "Dude" or "Bro". She grew her hair out and dresses in a distinctly feminine way in order to avoid such problems in the future.

Where you think the character will end up: dead or alive. It could go either way.

What you want help with: Maybe a little bit more of a past. Flaws of any kind would be loved. Or any redeeming qualities, if you think she should have them. But I definitely need quirks.

I think he is a little bit. I mean, if you're vain, a little cockyness is usually included.
