Can i post images now? Anihoo, I found this meme on Momogirl
's journal and i wanted to try it. I wanna go with Terrie from my HiEx series.
1. Terrie is part of a family that runs a hair salon together in an artsy town called Chester. They get lots of musicians for clients, but they're open to anybody. Ren (parental figure) and Les (younger brother) are the stylists of the buch, Raphael (dad) does management things on occasion, and Terrie herself works on home made hair and skin care products. The business and family are rather popular, but Terrie is rarely ever seen on the salon floor and hides herself from promotions and public relations.
2. She's very socially anxious. Dealing with one person at a time is pretty doable, but getting attention from an audience makes her want to disappear.
3. Her natural hair color is reddish brown. Just slightly lighter than her dad's Everyone in the family except Raph dyes their hair in some crazy color. Ren just changes between more colors than anyone else. Terrie has always stuck with blueish purples and re-dyes it regularly except on summer vacations.
4. Legal name is Terrie Daiquiri. Ren wanted to give the kids gender-neutral names, but Terrie pens her full name as Theresa Daiquiri, as she wanted a more feminine name. Also on the subject of names, Daiquiri was a last name chosen by Ren and Raph when they got married.
5. She was bullied and joked on a lot for being small and for standing out from a family of flashy people. She’s grown some immunity over it, but it’s still bothersome if done too much. She never considered herself a normal person with a normal family, but unlike Geno, she’s actually accepted this.
5a. Ren is also a short person, while Les and Raph are tall people.
?. it should also be said at this point that Ren is a FtM transgender. How far into the transition journey he's into- it doesn't contribute any necessity to the story, just his identity. He and Raph do have a backstory that will eventually happen
6. Terrie reads a lot of books, Mostly how-tos and encyclopedia articles, but fantasy novels are a guilty pleasure. She’s not into video games or much into television. She won’t get most references that others will jab around her.
7. The pants/skirt combo has been her style for a few years now. Long shirts over pants was an older style of hers, but still something she would alternate into on occasion. The skirt she wears as part of the Greenhouse team uniform is worn with hiking shorts. Earlier concepts of her had the greenhouse team skirt as short as her regular skirts, but felt like it was too anime to give girls short uniform skirts. She wears brown boots with almost all of her outfits. The school doesn’t have any rules on footwear except to actually wear some when on campus
8. She is an asexual, except she doesn’t know about asexuality. She just feels like an outcast for not having interest like her peers. Geno will figure this out pretty quick since he knows about the concept, but some of his ICs (in-charge people) don’t, so getting warned repeatedly not to get in bed with the student will be amusing but also kind of frustrating after a while.
9. Terrie and Audrie are both huge fans of each others’ work and hoped to exchange a lot of info/advice when Audrie got Terrie enrolled in the school and training to be an apprentice. If the other students didn’t make Terrie feel awkward in class, she and Audrie would be giggling together like besties.
10. Out of all hiex mains that existed since 2006, Terrie was the only character who went through drastic design changes. She was originally an outgoing sassy girl of average young adult height who wore black/orange dresses because she was a halloween fanatic and her hair was styled different. Dr. Generic also changed quite a bit visually (though given a bigger personality overhaul), but he was introduced in the 2009 comic. In the 2011 comic that’s still running today, he was removed from the prologue and replaced with Riley while given a different entrance later on in chapter 1
Terrie was created for the comic in either 2006 or 2007. HiEx first came to be in 2004 where the main characters were Geno, Kat, Von, and Stanley, all of whom still exist in present day.
