Alright, well, the setting is basically what used to be a small city, and on the far south-eastern side of the city is where the safe zone is, home to about 100 or so people. (in comparison to the couple thousand that were in the original city). Nothing is in 'good' condition. There is 'working' condition, and dilapidated. Some of the dilapidated buildings are used for storage, even though they would normally be condemned. Some are also torn apart for the building materials, but most buildings are kept up, or at least they attempt to keep them up. The safe zone is approximately a 10 block by 10 block radius, having tanks stationed around the area, spaced evenly. You're considered lucky if you have half-way decent clothes.
Outside of the safe zone is much worse, houses are halfway torn down, cars smashed, a few standing buildings here and there. Occasionally a car that looks like it might run if you had the key, sitting on the side of the road and in driveways. Those who aren't in the safe zone would know that never is a good time to be in visible sight. This means in any part of your house with windows, or outside. The 'safest' place would be a basement or factory, of which there are few in the city(factories). You would have to be extremely careful, alert, and quick (not to mention lucky) to be living on the outside. Most of the people who are on 'the outside' are only there because they haven't found a safe way to the 'safe zones' yet.
Age: 17-18 ish
Description: about 5'5", 120lbs. A slender frame, but not void of any 'meat'. She's still not very large in any way of speaking. She has green/hazel eyes(that seem to change intensity between the colors) and medium length light brown hair, reaching to her shoulder blades/collar bone. She wears simple blue jeans, boot cut, with worn holes in the knee areas and near the bottom edge. She has a pair of old black shoes(just regular 'tennis shoes') that still serve their purpose to an extent. She has a few t-shirts she tries to rotate, washing them in the water she manages to collect when she's done with it, hanging them up to dry. She lives out of her basement with her dog, a brown and white Australian shepherd, trying to remain unseen until she can make a break for the safe zone. She wouldn't leave her dog behind, making her escape that much more difficult.
