Gwendolyn Gates (goes by Gwen)Gender:
HumanFandom or original:
Standing at 5'1" small, she is slender with soft curves. Gwen has long blond hair, flowing down to her mid back in natural waves and soft curls. The colour ranges from light honey golden blond to white creating a colour that sparkles in the sun. Her eyes are a very light crystal blue.Personality:
Gwen is a sweet girl, eager to please those she sees as authority figures. Naive in many ways, she sees the best in people (even if it is not there) though do not let her kind demeanor fool you, she has a wicked temper that can explode at a drop of a hat, mainly resulting from being the only girl in a large family filled to the rim with younger male siblings! Likes:
Romance movies, horseback riding, late night skinny dipping, running in the early hours of the morning, dancing (badly) when no one is around, singing (badly) at the top of her lungs (both in the shower and when driving alone, or cooking, or whenever the mood strikes) chai tea, blueberries on her cereal, ice cream with brownie bits chocolate covered cherries (delish!) and old black and white movies. Dislike:
Having to share a bed with her brothers, the phrase “you are the oldest, you must be an example or the others”, underwear that rides up, skinny jeans, peas and raisins (ick), confined places, the dark and the sound of breaking glass, vampires, pompous assholes, people that think it's okay to eat off of her plate. Fears:
Gwen has a recurring dream, or rather nightmare. It begins with the sound of glass smashing, sometimes she is her current age, and other times she is a young baby. But regardless of her age, the rest of the dream remains the same… she is witnessing the death of her parents from within the darkness of a closet (where she was placed by her mother for “safe keeping”).
Each time she has this dream/nightmare, Gwen wakes up up screaming and shaking… having just witnessed in her dreams something or someone taking the life of her parents, leaving their bodies on the ground like empty shells. As a result, Gwen hates confined places, the dark and the sound of breaking glass, and vampires (nothing about them are sexy, no matter what Hollywood wants to say). Bio:
Gwen’s mother was a great ballet dancer in her time, as was her grandmother and her grandmother’s mother. Gwen’s life had already been plotted out for her while still in utero. She would be another link the the long line of dancers whether she actually wanted to be or not. There simply had been no other option and it had never occurred to Gwen to argue.
However no one had taken into consideration that the girl would be born without a single ounce of talent for dancing. However, she did enjoy smacking the tennis ball to release her tension (again… too many brothers!). It was during one of those battles against the tennis court wall that she was noticed by the local tennis instructor. Gwen joined the tennis team when she was 11 and met Lilly (her forever best friend). Within a year they had become the best of friends, joined at the hip and rarely seen without each other until Lilly’s untimely death from a car accident.
Heartbroken, Gwen left her family home to visit her grandmother of her father’s side in hope to gain some peace for both her heart and her mind. Although the accident was not Gwen’s fault as they were hit by a drunk driver, Gwen feels guilty for being able to walk away from the tragic accident with barely a scratch and a broken wrist.
She suffers from bad dreams, one as mentioned above, and now another with Lilly telling her to come with her, encouraging Gwen to take her own life. Unable to shake the nightmares, Gwen has become restless, unwilling to sleep.
Father: George Gates Jr - CEO of a major drug company. Strict with his sons, he has a soft spot for his first child and only daughter. She is his princess. He would do anything for her without a moments hesitation.
Mother: Sylvie Gates - Ex-Ballerina and currently running a ballet dance studio. She is harder on her daughter than she is on her sons, the complete opposite to Gwen’s father. There is still an underlying disappointment in the lack of dance skills, and it bleeds through other aspects of their relationship. To Gwen, it feels like she can do nothing right for her mother. Not to mention that it was becoming pregnant with Gwen that killed Sylvie’s dancing career… bitter much?
Brian Gates (age 17) - Jackass, enjoys loud heavy metal music and smokes a lot of weed.
Daniel Gates (age 15) - Jock - extremely athletic, and a football star in high school
Neil Gates (age 13) - Heavily into vampires and werewolves and all things monster related
Ryan Gates (age 10) - Smart and sweet, looks up to his sister and misses her terribly
Edith Gates (grandmother on father’s side and resident in the small town Gwen is visiting) - Edith is a kind hearted lady living in the same victorian home she had shared with her husband (departed - George Senior) and her three sons, George Jr, Eric, and Jackson. Each boy has since married and moved away, leaving Edith alone to potter about the large home with only her cats to keep her company. She is an avid gardener, loves to feed the birds, squirrels and other wildlife.
Helen Nolan (grandmother on mother's side) - Helen lives with her daughter and son-in-law in a luxury in-law suite. She helped to raise the children and holds pretty much the same attitude towards Gwen and Sylvie does. This is the reason Gwen’s father sent her to HIS mother, so that she would get the care that he knew only she could provide.
Lillian (Lilly) Hunt: (Deceased best friend)
Lilly had always been, too put it kindly, naive. She was born to a teenage mother (Rosa who was 15 when she gave birth to her daughter) and so, life has always been a struggle. Rosa was thrilled to be a mother at first, that is until the hard work started and the crying began… after all a hungry baby didn’t know that its mother was not capable of handling the responsibility of a newborn without help. And so on her 18th month birthday, Lilly found herself locked in her crib, crying and hungry while her mother lay face down in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor. After which, Lilly was placed in the “system” for approximately two weeks before her Grandmother came to claim her.
There was still not a lot of money, but what there was an abundance of was love and thankfully, food. Lilly lived in a small two bedroom bungalow, and for the most part she was happy. However, like her mother before her, Lilly had dreams. Some might call them pipe dreams, but they were important enough to Lilly to follow. Being chosen for the elite tennis team alongside her best friend Gwen was the start of seeing those dreams coming true…. and then, at her own insistence, the girls took to the town to celebrate. It was coming home from that very happy time that they were struck by a drunk driver, leaving Lilly (the driver) dead at the scene.
Gwen can be stubborn, with a steely determination. She is used to helping out in a big family, so she isn’t afraid of hard work. Weakness:
Gwen has a fear of failing. She is rather vulnerable and can be easily lead. offs and ons:
She doesn’t have much sexual experience, and what she has had wasn’t exactly ground shattering. Frankly, Gwen doesn’t see what the big deal is.
(as for the writer, I do not do incest, or anything to do with bathroom habits or animals. Other than that I can be reasonable if it blends well with the situation, I suggest you PM me if you are interested in something. Do to the nature of the game, I am also not against Non-Con, but would rather not have my character physically scared or damaged.)
