Heather Capelli, 16

Her parents have been “on the verge of divorce” before they even had their first kid. Dad is viciously paranoid his wife is always having an affair and takes all kinds of medications to deal with the “stress”. His manhood has been in question for so long, he’s a whipped and beaten sack of defeat. Heather has never seen her mom without a glass of wine in her hand. As it turns out, the woman IS having an affair. She’s been having affairs since before they got married, often enough that the paternity of all her children are in question. Her youngest two children (Heather and her younger brother) certainly don’t look anything like their father. The parents pay very little attention to their children, and when they do it’s usually to complain about them.

She has two brothers. Her older brother (19) dropped out of school and ditched town the second he turned eighteen. She hasn’t seen or heard from him since. Her younger brother (11) is having a hard time at school, and Heather is always stepping in to slap around kids that are picking on him.

At school Heather doesn’t stand out a lot – at least she doesn’t try to or believe that she does. Every couple weeks she switches up where and who she sits with at lunch, usually based on who is willing to share their food that day. She’s pretty good at talking to people about any number of things, nor does she discriminate about who she chats with. Heather is comfortable with everyone, and they don’t seem to have a problem with her either. The only strange thing is that she never really talks about herself. They know ABOUT her and being a small town, everyone is familiar with family gossip… but no one actually knows what she’s like or does outside of school. Heather fades in to the background.

Real Heather is… she doesn’t even know. The problem is that she’s really smart, but completely aimless. She has the opinion that it’s pointless to try. Because of her family situation she knows she’s not going to college and is just going to end up in some dead end job for the rest of her life. Maybe she’ll get married to someone she kind of likes and have some kids. It’s what everyone does so why should she think she’s special?

Despite her pessimistic views on life, she’s a daydreamer. She thinks in story-form. Part of the reasons she likes migrating between social groups is because she enjoys people’s stories. Even though she doubts she’s going to do anything remarkable in her own life, she likes daydreaming about all the things she could do if she had money and opportunity.

Heather loves being outdoors. The sun, the weather, trees, parks, nature, etc. She doesn’t like being cooped up indoors for too long, and is possibly even a little claustrophobic. The smaller the space, the more antsy she becomes.

Although she seems like a subdued and shy person at first, once you spend enough time with her and she gets to know you better, she actually has a very bold personality. When she feels like she can trust you is when she acts more natural, letting you see her moods, sharing personal information, etc. Heather likes to talk, argue, get involved in deep conversations about life, the universe, and everything in between. Once she’s comfortable, she’s a lot more confident in trying new things and getting excited about something ambitious.

Dating has never been on the table for Heather. She’s either been too oblivious to the affections of others OR the few times she’s noticed, she flat out wasn’t interested. She’s never acted on her own crushes, either, as she’s too afraid to actually get that close to somebody. One of her greatest fears is that she’ll love somebody and the relationship is going to go to shit. She thinks it’s better to just not have one at all.

She has several piercings in her ears, one in her nose and her belly button. She rarely wears them all at once, and never with flashy jewelry so her parents still have no idea she has them. Heather really wants a tattoo but doesn’t want to get something stupid and meaningless just to “have a tattoo”. She wants something that has a lot of special importance to her, but that’s been hard to figure out.
