For consideration. More than happy to weak things if she too closely matches up with something you already have.

At only 5'2, first impressions of Jessica tend to include words like, petite and diminutive...until people get to know her and realize that she has a personality much larger than her small frame would suggest. She also dresses to make herself appear taller and only trades in her 2-4 inch heels for sneakers when she is actually going to be in surgery. In the office however her dark hair is always neatly bound back, her clothing is professional and tidy and leans toward suits to give her a slightly older air to counter her youthful appearance. Away from the hospital she leans to jeans or skirts and her ever present heels to make herself look taller. It is away from her patients that one might also discover that there is an Ouroboros tattooed on her right shoulder and a chain of vines tattooed around her left ankle.
"Li" as most of her friends call her for short, is intelligent, driven, tenacious and has a nasty habit of not just thinking she's right, but often being
right. Those traits are tempered by a need to do good for others (hence her drive to become a physician), a kind heart, honesty, loyalty, and while she will be the first to tell her friends hard truths, she will try to temper them and speak them as gently as possible. She also has a, surprisingly, wicked sense of humor that most don't see until she gets to know them well enough to feel comfortable around them...this leaves many believing she is rather more serious than she is, or that she's entirely without a sense of humor, until she suddenly surprises them with her sharp wit.Background:
Li grew up in a fairly average middle class home with one older brother, a Mother whose a teacher and Father whose an electrician. Both of her parents had grown up in poorer homes than the one they were able to make together and that background had taught the the value of their money and not to live outside their means so while they could have gotten a "bigger/newer" house/car/appliance etc. they chose to live more modestly and ensure that things were taken care of for both their, and their children's future. Li wasn't actually aware of any of this as a child. What she knew was that they didn't have the biggest house, but that her parents made sure they certainly had the warmest home of anyone she knew and while she didn't have the newest and best, many of her friends still preferred to spend their time in her home, basking in the love that her parents were just as happy to share with their "adopted" children as with their own flesh and blood offspring.
Li wouldn't have traded that simple home for all the mansions in the city.
As she grew older her parents (her Mother the teacher in particular) stressed the value of a good education and in working hard for those things you wanted. When it came time for things like school shopping she and her brother would be allotted a specific amount of money that her parents would provide and anything outside of that sum they had to work to earn. If she wanted 150$ sneakers she either needed to have a reason to need such high end shoes (they were willing to provide for things like athletic equipment but not just because they were the newest and coolest) or she had to earn the money to buy them herself. This quickly taught her to value her money and how to save for the things she wanted. It also taught her to question whether she truly
wanted something enough to use her hard earned money on it or not.
As simply as they lived, Li was actually surprised to find that when she wanted to go to college, her parents had saved enough for her entire undergraduate education, and the first year of her post-graduate education as well, and that they'd done the same for her brother! Unlike Li, her brother chose not to pursue a college education, but went to a trade school to become an electrician like their Father. This left a rather nice chunk of money left over and their parents split it, simply giving her brother half and using the rest to pay for another years tuition of Li's medical schooling. Between scholarships and her parents hard earned money, Li actually managed to graduate from medical school with only 20,000$ of debt, not the hundreds most of her classmates had managed to accrue in that same time. It was a weight off her shoulders, but her parents had taught her to despise any sort of debt and it weighs on the back of her mind all the same.
Now in her third year of her surgical residency, Li can finally start to see the light at the end of the tunnel and a future that doesn't include nothing but studying and working with just the occasional night here and there to remind her she's human. The end of that tunnel is still four years away, but it's much closer than it was when she graduated high school at 17.
Recently, however, things have gotten a little weird. Nothing that anyone else would have noticed but that she couldn't miss. For example she'd been stuck with a needle a few days ago but when she'd pulled off her gloves to change them, there'd been no sign of that needlestick. Or when she'd cut her leg shaving, but when she wiped the blood away there was no cut to be found. She couldn't say that being able to heal herself was a bad thing, but she wasn't entirely certain that was what was happening (she was too analytical to just take it at face value) and the idea of cutting herself on purpose to find out made her rather squeamish. It could be a truly awesome gift, or it could be a sign that the pressure of years of schooling and residency were actually making her crack...and she was scared to find out which!Symptoms:
Regeneration SL-1Hobbies and Interests:
Hobbies? What are hobbies? While Li doesn't have much time for hobbies when she takes a rare night off from work and studying she can be found reading just about anything (so long as it has nothing to do with medicine!), catching a movie, going to dinner with friends, hitting the occasional jazz club (or other club if a friend suggests the musicians playing are good), or just shutting herself in away from the entire world and curling up with old DVD's and a pint of her favorite ice cream.
OOC Ons and Offs: Generally pretty flexible, anything other than bathroom play, bestiality, maiming, death, or underage can probably be negotiated at least once.
