Harper is what is known as a gentleman tomboy. She dresses in stylishly masculine apparel, and her hair is cut short in a complex, asymetrical style that often falls softly across her smooth brow. She's not often seen in make-up, but she takes very good care of her hair, skin and nails, which gives her a slightly polished look. She has multiple tattoos on her arms and a few scattered elsewhere, including the side of her neck. Her tongue and nipples are pierced, and she has multiple piercings in each of her ears.
Personality and History:Personality:
Harper is so laid-back that sometimes people get the urge to check her pulse to make certain she's still alive. She hates drama and avoids it when she can, though not at the expense of anyone else. If she sees someone being treated poorly or unfairly and they can't defend themselves, or they need a little help to do so, she'll step up and put up. She's not afraid to get her hands dirty, and she proves that regularly with her handy skills, like fixing plumbing, putting up shelves, or repairing cars. Her first love is the guitar, and a close second is singing. She hates housework, though, so her room is often a disaster area. She tends to be messy, but not dirty, though she has been known to do the sniff test if she's been too busy, or absent-minded, to do the laundry. Likes:
Women, jazz music, rock and roll, cars, spending money, street art, getting tattoos, good whiskey, hot showers, black coffee, bacon, running, snowboarding, good literature, motorcycles, cigars, steak, grilling, skateboarding, racing, auctions, winningDislikes:
Drama, emotionally closed-off people, stupidity, dumb movies, prissy girls, intolerance, cabbage, frosting, pop music, liars, machismo, the phrase 'like a girl' when used as an insult, losing, tofuStrengths:
Harper is good in a fight, but she will straight up deck someone, man or woman, if they deserve it. She's smart and witty. She's damned handy to have around the house. She is particularly good at writing music, playing guitar and has a low, smoky singing voice. She's honest, but tactful, and loyal once her trust and respect is gained.Weaknesses:
She despises housework, preferring to spend her time fixing cars, or writing music, to picking up the clothes strewn about her room, or dusting. She sometimes bites off more than she can chew, due to her fearlessness and self-confidence. Harper can be too competitive, and in combination with her fearlessness, it can prove dangerous when she lets her desire to win put her in perilous situations.Ambitions & Goals:
Harper's goals involve her music. She wants to build a music career and then own her own label, eventually building a company that handles interesting, fresh bands with a real passion for the art. She'd also like to acquire multiple cars, buying fixer-uppers and rebuilding and restoring them to their former glory.Ons and offs:
Harper likes strong, intelligent women. She's dominant in the bedroom, and in the relationship, but it it expresses its self more as taking care of the other person, than controlling them. She is very much about her partner's desires, bringing them as much pleasure as possible, exploring what they enjoy, because it gives her a sense of accomplishment and her own enjoyment is very much affected by the pleasure of her partner. She doesn't like vore, gore, blood, vomit or scat, but most everything else is open to what will bring her partner the most pleasure. History:
Harper is the first-born daughter of Henry James Roth and Elizabeth Rachel Lewis-Turner. Her father is a well-known entrepreneur from old money, and her mother is a society deb whose family's money came from oil. She has three younger sisters, but no brothers, and she is considered something of the black sheep of the family. Her musical inclinations, as well as her sexual proclivities and decidedly alternative appearance are not well-received by her parents. Still, they haven't cut her off, or disowned her, she just has to deal with pointed questions, silent judgement and constant nagging when visiting the family estate.
She was pretty much raised by her nanny, since her father was often away on business, and her mother had a never-ending stream of social gatherings, charity work and meetings to attend. Harper spent most of her time playing with the nanny's son, Max, and he was the one who taught her how to fight, work on cars and take care of household chores. When she was fourteen, and he was sixteen, he tried to kiss her, and ended up with a fat lip for his efforts. He was the first to find out Harper was gay, though it wasn't long after that she came out to her family. She lost a few friends as a result, but figured if they were that shallow, then they weren't worth missing.
She graduated valedictorian, though her parents freaked out when she told them she was going to study music in high school, rather than business as they'd planned. They knew she loved to play, and had talent, but considered it a hobby, not a career. Still, she'd won a full-ride scholarship, so there wasn't much they could do to stop her. Especially since their empty threats to cut her off were met with shrugs and promises that she'd just get a job in a mechanic's shop or waiting tables. So, they had to suck it up and deal. Still, they both secretly harbor the dwindling hope that it's all just a phase and one day she'll snap out of it, start wearing pretty dresses, marry a nice boy, have kids and get a more respectable career.
