FULL NAME Nicolette Cordelia Reynolds
BIRTHDAY May 9th
ZODIAC ♉ Taurus
SEXUALITY Bisexual, Slight Female Preference
GRADE Eleventh, Junior
Hair is kept relatively short considering it brushed her jawline, often left her natural brown color and laced with shades of blonde into the curls for a summery highlighted look. Seriously though? Who wouldn't get lost in those milky chocolate brown eyes? It's like a celebrity makeup artist taught her to paint lashes and eyelids flawlessly, but in actuality, it was mostly just a lot of spare time on her hands to experiment. Regardles sof outfit, makeup is usually in soft tones, never too bold, but jsut enough to exaggerate her natural beauty.
Being five foot eight and relatively average in weight, she'll wear just about anything. Growing up a foster, she learned not to cling to material possessions, often winding up in hand-me-downs and stuff too big for her. BEcause of this, she did develop a taste for a tomboyish style. Favorite accessory? An olive green jacket with a studded eagle across the back. Over the past few years, it's one of the few things she's been able to hold on to.
✔ Street Hockey
✔ Large Dogs - Especially Great Danes and Bernese Mountain Dogs
✔ Dancing / Partying
✔ Spring and Fall
✔ Music - Fond of Rock, Metal, Trance, Dubstep, and even some Pop/R&B
✔ 'Bad' Guys/Girls - The kind you wouldn't want to meet your parents.
✘ Snow / Winter
✘ Cats - House pets, large cats are cool.
✘ Preppy Girls - Not to be confused with pretty.
✘ Hard Drugs - May or may not have dabbled in some of them in her youth.
✘ Oranges & Raisins
Adaptable - Because of so much time spent bouncing from one location to the next, she learned to be pretty relaxed about her surrounding. It doesn't matter where she is or what she's doing, Nico adjusts quickly. She had to!
Musically Inclined - Though she's never had to chance to really work with it, in her years she has taken an affinity to music, and given the chance, would probably excel in a band. Is drawn more towards drums and bass / acoustic guitars given a choice.
Positive - Rather then let her life get her down for it's imperfect nature, Nicolette embraced it for what it was. She got to meet a lot of people, see all kinds of different communities and lifestyles. Almost always in good spirits, it takes a whole hell of a lot to anger her. Wanna fast track to it? Attack a person or animal in front of her.
Passionate - Despite not knowing what she wants out of life, that drive to find out what it is has made her a very passionate person. A fierce friend, a loyal companion, and an incredible lover. To the same extent, she is also a formidable enemy should you cross her. She feels strongly and is not afraid to show or act on those feelings.
Uncertain - Much like her strengths, her lack of settling down has left her with no idea what she wants to do with her life, the kind of people she'll get along with, or even what kinds of food she really likes. Everything just changed so constantly, that she never developed favorites or ideals.
Academics - Each school is different, so when entering a new school, it takes her a while to figure out what she's missed, and trying to bridge the gap / fill in the blanks. She requires tutoring, and has grown to hate school for the added challenge. This may change with time.
Talkative - Because she has been through so much, and moved around so often, she just has so much to say. Sometimes she'll cut people off, or never shut up long enough for someone else to get a word in edgewise. Because of this, she will sometimes shy away from beginning to talk, simply so that she wont bother anyone if she can't get herself to stop. Duct tape is a requirement to have on you if you want to be a lasting part of her life.
ADD - This is another struggle in her life; Attention Deficit Disorder. Though she has not let it hinder her too much, and uses the vast ability to retain knowledge to her advantage, it does have negative side effects. It is hard to keep her attention on one thing for too long if it is not constantly changing. Things that are repetitive and slow often lead her to become distracted.
Despite all she's been through, Nico is a pretty easy person to get along with. She's outgoing, bold, spontaneous, and incredibly well mannered. Loves to have fun, but never at the expense of others. The way she sees it, there was no reason to let life get her down, she couldn't control the past. All she could do was choose to move forward and be happy!
She's respectful of her elders (foster parents, teachers, etc), having learned that misbehaving only made the life of a foster child a nightmare. Though she is actually terrified of death, she pretends to be fearless, and often gets herself into trouble with crazy antics. Wentworth is a new place, and Nicolette is using it to get outside of her comfort zone and truly find herself. If a little partying, substance abuse, or bruises happen along the way.. well, no regrets! At least she could live life to the fullest. It'll give her the chance to feel around, find her calling.
Though Nicolette was born in Rhode Island, in a town not too far from Wentworth, she spent a majority of her life floating around. Her mother passed away giving birth to her, and no father was ever really known. Passing from an orphanage, into foster care, and then from house to house for years on end. There was just never anywhere that she stayed long enough to call home. It wasn't because she was a bad kid, in fact, several times she elected to move on so a child who needed more attention could get into a certain home that would work better with them.
About a year ago, she moved in with a family here in Wentworth, and they worked on homeschooling her to get her caught up with the area's curriculum. Since each school she'd been to was different, she wasn't quite on par with what would be expected of her at the Academy. The foster parents, Marielle and Douglas, grew fond of her, but had a son and another foster child to care for. It was Nico herself who discovered the boarding school here in town, and brought up the idea to the pair. The agency that placed them with her would pay for her tuition, and still give the family money to feed and cloth her, so she could be one less struggle they had to concern themselves with, and could potentially still offer the spare bed to another child.
With the prospect of still having a family to return to on the holidays, but live more independently, Nicolette was enrolled in Wentworth Academy. Though she would be joining a semester late into the year, he homeschooling covered the credits she would have missed. Though far from perfect, she embraced the school and prepared herself to finish off her last two years in school, right here. The idea of finally having her feet planted firmly on the ground was kind of scary, but amazing at the same time. She could make some lasting friendships, maybe even date. Most importantly, a bed that wouldn't be going anywhere. That's all she really wanted..
That's funny. Yeah, no ;p
