Late to the party, but as they say, better late than never, eh?
Name: Alodia Espanita
Freak or Geek: Freak
Backstory: Alodia came from a perfectly normal family. Contrary to the stereotype of "problem" kids, Alodia's family was perfectly intact and loving. The youngest of three sisters, she always struggled to be as good as her sisters. Alodia's oldest sister was an established surgeon and the other sister was studying for a PhD in Biology. Relatives and family friends have always told Alodia that she had to work hard to be like her sisters, and when she was young, she really did try her best. It wasn't her fault, however, that she did not excel at her studies, or at ballet, or at piano, or at anything at all in particular. Struggling to be different and recognised for who she was, she began to explore alternate fashion. To her surprise, her parents were supportive of the black makeup and blue hair dye. Alodia became interested in fashion designing too. Her classmates did not understand her and labelled her a freak, but she became famous in the gothic subculture as a model and fashion designer. Her grades plummeted, but her parents didn't mind too much. They told Alodia that if she was totally sure fashion designing was her chosen career path, then they would still love her and support her through that, strange clothes and all.
Of course, Alodia's parents haven't quite found out about the nipple piercings yet. But that will be a story for another time.
