My character's name is Rachel A. Dinera. She is 29 years old and is 5 foot 6. She is slim with wavy blonde hair that sways down to her hips. She is quite serious and not afraid to cause pain. She will not get distracted in her work. She is very determined and she hates to laugh or smile. She will do it... but it would take a miracle. She wears black sunglasses and black clothes often and dislikes sparkles,, dresses, skirts, shorts, bright colors, colors besides black, onions, garlic, or in other words... she hates looking nice(But she still is pretty) and she is really picky... REALLY picky. Very independant. She doesnt do make up. she doesnt have grey hairs. Well... anything you want to add go ahead... and if you dont like some part... change it! I wont care. Thank you and please choose Rachel!
