(Heh, Heh. e.e Be lucky you're getting this, Bud.) <p> Age; Steam looks approximally eighteen, so yeah, let's go with that. <p> Name; *laugh.* As you can see above, my Name is Steam. As an add-on make it; Steam Renee Heinsenburg. <p> Friends; xD xD Like I'd have any, don't waste your time asking about my friends. 'Kay? <p> Gender; Again? I'm way too sexy to be of a man, I'm just the right sexiness to meet a female standard. <p> Crush/Status; That'd be my boyfriend, Scythe. cx *kisses.* I'm taken, boys. <p> Personality; Well, I've been told that I meet the goal of being a person who assumes too much, that is also a reason why I don't make friends. I'm dramatically stuborn, and I can be a bit<_>ch and jealous. :3 So, back off or I'll ri your head off. Ya' hear? <p> History; I have a deal about not being able to trust too often, and my history deals with that, so it's not important. <p> Attire; Steam isn't really of a dress-kinda girl, but when she has to dress up, she wears a cute little upper-high length dress that tightens at her upper body and swirls over her upper-thighs. During this sort of attire, Steam wears a cutte lil' pair of ballet flats and her dark hair up in a pony tail. When Steam isn't in the mood to dress up, she wears a pair of hipster-style joggers that are tight around her ankles and waist, but baggy around her legs. She wears an assortment of colored blouse with her black letter man jacket over top; she also has a red and blue. As shoes, she wears a pair of wedge-made boots that cover up the end of the joggers in doing so, her hair up in a mess she had called a'bun.' <p> Apperance; Steam is a petite women that stand about five feet and about seven inches into the air with an overall toned body. Her skin is a crystalized-pale color that look nice with her inky, black curls that shape her heart-shaped face. She has a cute up-turned snob nose with freckles that cover the silky flesh on her high cheekbones, barely noticable. Steam has a set of arrow-shaped fenimine lips that a blush pink, the lower a bit bigger than the upper. She has a flat stomach, so that her chest juts outward from her naturally-rounded stomach. Her eyebrows are a light black comared to her inky,black hair, and her eyebrows are naturally arched to perfection. Along with perfection, Steam has perfect curves due to the fact she developed them a bit earlier than most due. <p> Press that [x].
