    East, Demi, and Jinky

    East, Demi, and Jinky are all different forms of the same soul. East is the most commonly seen form, then Demi, and Jinky has nearly dropped off the face of the earth. Jinky is a golden-furred shecat with bright green eyes. Her pelt is long and sheds a lot. She is missing a claw on her back right paw and has a scar across her back. Demi is a short-furred black shecat, with muddy green eyes and raven-colored wings. She has a nick in her left ear and a singe mark on her flank. She can spit acid and her fangs are long and sharp. East is a human with long brown hair and dead green eyes. She wears red half-rim glasses and a long red half-sleeve shirt with dark blue jeans, and favors her black Sketchers and mismatched socks. Jinky had no one, Demi had Nebula but he's long gone, and East is currently with Neko. None of the forms know how old they are. Jinky has a bright, bubbling personality and she's always happy. Demi can be moody, but is generally all right. East is downright unstable. She acts insane sometimes, and talks to a creepy doll. The doll's name is Big-Heart Helena, and it has yellow yarn hair and a triangle nose with a stitched-on smile. It wears a blue dress with white polka dots, and has a big, red, felt heart sewn onto its chest with uneven stitches in black thread. It ran out of batteries a long time ago, but still talks. East, Demi, and Jinky can be found at Oliver Twist. The rest of my bios are at 'this is me and i am us' all results.
