- Dani hardly ever takes anything seriously, and never lets things stress her out.Charismatic
- The girl's got charm pouring out of her ears, and she doesn't have to try for it, it's just natural.Confident
- Dani doesn't give a shit what anyone thinks, she knows who she is and she likes herself.Generous
- If she's got it and someone needs it, she has no problem giving it away. Whatever 'it' might be.Empathetic
- Growing up different has made her quite good at putting herself in other people's shoes, and feeling what they feel.Intelligent
- She may not understand theoretical physics, but she's whip smart and asks the right questions, which makes her good at learning about things she doesn't understand and swiftly picking up that which she learns.Unguarded
- Dani doesn't hold anything of herself back from the people she trusts. She's completely honest about herself, and open with her life, unashamed.Slow to Anger
- It takes a lot to push Dani's buttons, and most of the things that might anger other people just roll off her back. Insults directed at her will typically be met with a laugh, or an agreement. However, she will step to defend others without hesitation and preying on the weak and defenseless is the quickest way to get her angry.Not Averse to Violence
- When Dani gets angry, she tries to handle things reasonably, but she's not opposed to stepping in and using her fists, or any other part of her body, to get her point across. She enjoys the physicality of a bare-knuckle brawl, and it shows.A Little Crazy
- That taste for violence, her unconventional methods of communicating her emotions at times, and her seeming lack of self-interest or fear when it comes to defending perfect strangers against those who would harm them, all indicate a slight insanity on her part. She likes to think it adds to her charm, which might be true until you see her standing on top of a car driving sixty miles an hour on a dirt road, with her arms stretched out at her sides and a huge grin on her face. Then? Well, then she just seems to be taunting death.Messy
- She hates to clean. Depending on when the maid's last been in, a trip to her apartment will reveal clothes strewn about, dishes in the sink, crumpled papers on the floor and crumbs on the coffee table. She's messy, but she's not filthy
, so there's no old food around or anything.Likes:
High End Liquor

Dani was seven years old when she told her parents she wanted to be a boy. Her parents decided that she was suffering from some sort of trauma as a result of being an only child, and sent her to a child psychologist. The psychologist saw her three times a week, an hour a session, at $200/hour. He pretended to listen if Dani talked, but she figured out pretty quickly that he wasn't paying attention to her and didn't give a damn about what she was going through. He was perfectly happy if she sat there for an hour and said nothing, or napped, or spent her time coloring at the table in the middle of the room. So, that's what she did.
She stopped expressing her desire to be a boy, and her parents assumed that meant the therapy was working. They congratulated themselves for navigating such a tricky parental hurdle with aplomb, and rewarded themselves with a month-long trip to Monte Carlo, leaving their daughter behind in the care of her nanny. Julia, Dani's nanny, was far more understanding of the girl's situation and she became Dani's confidant. It was Julia who helped Dani understand that there was nothing wrong with her, that a lot of people don't fit into the boxes that society has set up for its self, and that she shouldn't feel bad because she wasn't one or the other. Julia helped Dani to explore the non-binary truth about herself, and explained to her that keeping the truth to herself wasn't about shame, but about protection. She had to keep it a secret until she could protect herself from other people's ignorance, but once she could do that, then she would never have to hide it again.
When Dani was seventeen, she fell in love with a girl at her exclusive private school. She invited her over for a sleep-over, and over the course of the night, she lost her virginity and gained a girlfriend. She knew that the other girl wasn't like her, but it didn't matter to her. Rebecca was beautiful, smart, and she didn't give a damn what anyone else thought about her. She gave Dani the confidence to finally be honest about herself for the first time since her parents had sent her to see the psychologist. It felt good, and even Dani's parents couldn't frighten her or force her to hide again. So, her father kicked her out and cut her off.
Dani ended up moving in with Julia, who hadn't worked for the family for about three years, once Dani's parents had decided she was too old to need a nanny. Julia was happy to take her in, and Dani finished out the school year at her private school, since it had already been paid for. Her parents didn't attend her graduation, or see her kiss Rebecca after she accepted her degree. They had completely cut her out of their lives, and Dani couldn't tell much of a difference. Her parents had never spent much time with her anyhow, and she was much happier living with Julia. The only difficulty came from the drastic difference in means, which required Dani to get a job if she wanted to attend college. She'd gotten a partial scholarship, but she took a job working on cars to make up the difference.
She'd spent a lot of time in her parent's impressive garage, watching their chauffeur maintain their fleet of vehicles. Eventually, she'd begun helping him, learning from him and acquiring a bankable skill that would have seemed useless to her parents. But, after they cut her off, that skill came in very handy. She worked at the garage for four years, putting herself through art school and getting her degree in photography, which led to launching her career taking pictures of cars, then people. Now, she works as a fashion photographer and artist, the commercial work funding her luxurious lifestyle along with the fairly brisk sales of her artwork. Julia lives in a small house bought by Dani, and she gets regular phone calls and visits from the girl who considers her to be her mother.Relationships:

Dani is gender-queer, which means she doesn't ascribe to the gender binary of male or female. She swaps pronouns freely when speaking about herself, and typically binds her breasts and wears a strap-on under her pants, though not always. Dani considers herself largely gender neutral with a strong masculine leaning, and she's fine with any pronouns one is most comfortable using with her.
