Tian has a general bitchy attitude, though she has a very sensitive gentle spot that she doesn't tend to let out. She'll generally tell you what she thinks, and isn't afraid to hurt peoples feelings, though she has been working on being creative with her critisim. Background:
Tian's birth was an odd one. The moment she was delivered and placed into her mothers arms her hair began to change color and length and her eyes as well. Her father seeing this left without a word, leaving her mother devestaded and her older brother resentful towards her. When they returned home, her mother would sit by the window, cradling Tian close, watching for her husband, resolving herself that he just needed time to think.
When Tian was 6 years old she met her father for the first and last time. He refused to look at her, or even acknowledge her presence. But handed her mother custody papers for her brother and left leaving her and her mother behind. Not soon after Tian's mother put a gun to her head ending her life leaving the lost girl alone. Soon Tian found herself scared, and alone, shifted from one home to the next until finally; when she was 13 she had found the place she thought she'd belonged.
An elderly couple who'd always wanted a child took Tian under thier wing, and fought to adopt her. For the first time in what seemed like forever she had some stability in her life, and despite her overbearing, bitchy attitude she made a few friends. She was allowed to go out to parties, the mall, and on one unfortunate occasion the zoo. She and one of her best friends were sitting around eating corndogs and fries near the snake exhibit when she inadvertantly reached out and petted a nearby snake that a man was carrying.
It was then she felt as though something were shifting inside her, changing her verying being. She tried to rise up, but found that her legs wouldn't move. She screamed, and so did everyone around her, as her pale skin tinted green and black, and her body lengthened out until she'd fully transformed into the snake she'd just touched moments before. She slithered beneath the feet of the panicing group and found herself in the safety of a back alley.
Slowly she began to shift back into herself, her clothing long gone, her eyes still holding the shape of the snake her senses still much like the creatures. She sat there, shaking with fear an old moldy trench coat she'd found covering her form. It was long past dark when he came, his voice echoing through her mind. She was too tired to remember much of the conversation but she does remember the invitation to the school, the chance to start over.
