Jessenia "Jesse" DevinPlayer Name:
Poly; Bi-Curious, though mostly HeterosexualFormer Occupation:
High School Student, Part-time Starschmucks BaristaPhysical Features:
Standing at an impressive 5' 1" and weighing in at a whopping 123 lbs, even with her tomboyish looks, Jesse would hardly be considered very physically intimidating. She keeps her dark hair cut short, the style having gone a little scruffy over the last month since the outbreak, though the fire in those chocolate colored eyes has yet to be stifled. Most recently, she's been seen in a worn gray hoodie with various printed tees under it, tattered and baggy jeans, and a sturdy pair of sneakers.
Underneath all the baggy layers, however, that tanned skin is still surprisingly unmarred save for the decorations that had been there prior to the fall of society. She's got several piercings, only the studs in her ears and the hoops in her left nostril and on both sides of her lower lip (snake bites) being visible when she's clothed. Besides those, Jesse sports small steel barbells in her nipples, as well as a vertical hood piercing down below with a steel barbell as well.
Slender, while still sporting nice curves and a small B-cup chest, Jesse knew she'd be a potential target of fates far worse than being mugged for any supplies she had, so she took to dressing in a more boyish way in the hopes of fooling any would-be attackers. She wears two sports bras and several baggy layers, helping to disguise her figure.Stats:
Agility: 9 (she was an Olympic hopeful for gymnastics)
Strength: 8 (same as above; gymnasts must be both flexible and strong)
Quick witted and prone to snark, Jesse tends to be very personable, if not a little flirtatious. She's quick to laugh and even quicker to smile among friends, however, these days she's become extremely withdrawn and wary of anyone and everyone she doesn't know well or already trust.Strengths:
She's patient, very physically fit, thinks well on her feet, is fairly competent at melee combat, and is a good team player when with those she can trust not to screw her over. She also has some basic survival training from some summer classes she took with her dad back when she was a kid, with some practice camping with her family every summer.Weaknesses:
She's unlikely to trust those she's just met, and she's not very good with weapons that she has to aim to use. Luckily, firearms tend to be fairly straightforward, though she's more likely to use a gun for intimidation of the living than as a weapon against the walking dead. Also, still being a teenager, she's still got a lot to learn about the world, and is still subject to her hormones from time to time.Background:
Having grown up on the East Coast in New York, Jesse is a relatively recent transplant to LA, having moved with her family about a year and a half ago with her mother's new job. With her mother being a highly successful surgeon, and her father a freelance writer, she grew up in a life of oddly harmonious contradictions. Responsibility, frivolity, hard work, hard play; all in all, Jesse was pretty happy with her life up until the devastating outbreak of the Sangre Negro in LA.
Since she could remember, Jesse had always been drawn to athletic pursuits of all sorts, though her favorite had always been gymnastics. Other sports were all well and good, and she was fairly good at them, but it was when she was on the mat that she really shined. In fact, she'd even been on her way to the Olympic tryouts before she learned first hand just how dirty the competition at such a high level could be.
For quite some time, the sexually precocious teen had been doing some extracurricular "Private Lessons" with her gymnastics coach, a fact that another one of the girls in her gym's program had unfortunately stumbled upon one fateful evening. The other girl, jealous of Jessenia's talent and the coach's obvious favor, spotted her opportunity to get even when she spotted the two performing some rather... acrobatic sexual maneuvers. Which she then filmed with her phone, making sure to get plenty of clear shots of the action between the two. And, about a week later, she sent a copy of the video to Jesse with the message that, in no uncertain terms, stated that she was to withdraw from the Olympic tryouts or the video would wind up all over the internet.
Not wanting to face the consequences of that video going viral, Jesse did back out of the tryouts, claiming that she just couldn't handle the pressure of that level of competition. Unfortunately, when her coach found out about the video, he cut things off between them immediately, and moved, stating he had to take care of some "family issues" in another state. It was shortly after that that Jesse's mother was offered a new position at a busy hospital in LA.
Devastated at loosing such a valued relationship and being forced to leave the life she'd grown so comfortable in, Jesse withdrew somewhat once they'd first reached their new home. Eventually she did make friends, of course, and she soon found herself drawn to other mentor type figures as well (causing no small amount of tension for some of her new male teachers).
Thankfully, her background in gymnastics translated spectacularly well into a new sort of athletic pursuit that she was rather suddenly introduced to by one of her new friends.
Now an avid Traceuse, Jesse had quickly become one of the best of the best when it comes to the freerunners of LA. Be it dashing through the halls of her high-school, vaulting over the landscaping downtown, or performing acrobatic feats through the middle of the mall scene, she'd finally started to carve out a niche for herself again when the outbreak heralding the apocalypse came crashing down around everyone.
Now, it's no longer a fight to find a place to belong. It's a fight to survive...Starting Gear:
Backpack with scavenged gear from the mall's sporting goods store, Sig P938 with 42 rounds of 9mm ammo, a black Ka Bar knife, and a wooden baseball bat.Character Ons/Offs:
Jesse's still very much figuring herself out in regards to her sexuality, but so far she's found she loves especially athletic sex, being tied up, partially clothed sex, and older men. Otherwise, she's keeping an open mind, as long as it doesn't involve filthy, disgusting, things (Scat, gore, bestiality, etc).
