PERSONALITY: Ashelya is known to be loud and proud by many people, not caring about other people think about her and shrugs most off. Ashelya is confident and out-going, attending parties and hanging around with friends. Due to her selfish and quick to anger attutide, she doesn't make friends easily but the one she does have, deeply cares for. Espeically for younger sister, Rika and their adopted little sister, Lil'Ash. She is very protective of Lil'Ash which has lead to some fights with people who would bully her younger sibling.
During her space time she prefers to sit around watching tv, or read, she prefers to read graphic novels and will usually avoids watching the anime counter parts. She also enjoys listening to music, she doesn’t seem to mind anything but will mostly stick to metal and hard-rock bands she’s grew up as a child. Ashelya loves to play pranks on people, something she and Lil'Ash share in common with one another. Although when Ashelya plays pranks on people, its difficult for some to tell if she’s being serious or just joking. Ashelya loves to sing, inspired by one of her favourite bands, Nightwish and finding she had a bit of a knack for it in High School but needed work. After attending Vocal Lessons, she honed her voice well, and got numerous roles in school plays for her voice alone.
PAST: Ashelya grew up in an orphanage along with her younger sister, Rika. When she was old enough to understand, one of the carers told her the reason they were in care was due to her parents couldn't afford to care for their children, also because their parents relationship was quite violent at times, they believed placing their children in care would give them a better chance. Ashelya was bullied a lot in school, unlike other children is didn't have the best of clothes or anything really new. Some children were cruel enough to even mock her for having no parents. For a long time, Ashelya ignored it for the most part but once they started bullying her younger sister, she started to become violent and lash out against the bullies. Due to her becoming increasing more violent, she was thrown out of a number of schools and her anger isses only got worse because of it.
At age 13, Ashelya and her sister where adopted by Karin and Nicholas Reid. They also had a son, named Alran. At first, Ashelya was quite caution and even quite afaird of her so-called parents and son and spent most of her time alone or with her sister in her room. Ashelya's anger was still quite bad and she continued to lash out at anyone. Karin didn’t stand for it, while she was strict with Ashelya she was fair and did her very best to help Ashelya with her anger. Slowly but surely her attutide started to improve.
As she got older and joined high school, her anger was near non-existence. Of course she had a few problem now and then but after making more friends and becoming more comfortable with her family. She started to take part in more school projects and learnt she had a talent for singing but still needed work. Karin and Nicholas were happy she was fitting in more and decided to help her singing, signing her up with singing and music lessons. This is where she met Eliza who played guitar and helped out in singing class. The 2 became very close with one another, even though Eliza wasn't around much in school due to her own personal reasons.
Leaving high school and headed straight to college, her main focus was her singing. Ashelya was joined by Eliza, who barely managed to past the introduction to get into college and the class, playing music together, going out to town and spending most of their time together. During this time, the 2 of them were insepartable. Eliza started to devlope feelings for Ashelya, and after a lot of arkward moments between the too, Ashelya started to share those same feelings and after some more clumsy moments on Eliza's behalf, the 2 began dating. Between college work and dating, everything was going quite well for Ashelya.
After leaving college, Ashelya got a few small parts in plays and singing in bars to help her dream of being a singer, along with Eliza's help. Although their relationship was quite rocky, Eliza was becoming very protective of Ashelya and Eliza was quite wrapped up in her own problems with her family which only strained there relationship more. After some time, it became too much for Ashelya and after long teary talk with Eliza, the 2 went their separte ways. During one of her gigs at a bar, Ashelya meet Grave, a young man that helped with sound checks at the bar. She was hired by the bar to sing for them on a daily bais, which worked out well as she was able to spent more time with Grave and get to know him better. She started to have strong feelings for Grave, and after Grave invited her out for a drink, she and him kissed. Since then, they began dating and have been together since.
Ashelya now has a job at the bar, part-time cleaning and the rest of the time singer. She still dreams of making it big but at the moment is quite happy with how her life is going. Her and Grave are hoping to move intogether soon after they save up some money.
Phew, that took a little while. I'm sorry for any mistakes I have made. I can't proof read too well XD; but if you read all that, I hoped you enjoyed it! If you have any questions feel free to ask.
Full Name: Ashlyn Walker
Nickname: Lil’Ash. Given to her by Ashelya
Birthday: 7th July
PERSONALITY: Lil’Ash is quite the handful for new people to take in, not for being nasty but for being incredibly friendly. She’s bouncy and hyper mainly due to her being diagnosed with ADHD when she was about 10 years old and also had, as Lil’Ash puts it ‘backward ears’ basically due to a birth defect her wolf ears didn’t develop much muscles and nerves which causes her ears to lie flat by the side of her head, unlike Ashelya’s that are alert and pointed but this has never effect her and finds it useful as she can wear a hat much easier, and suits her more...her words. While Lil’Ash tends to just go with the flow she does have a short attention span and quite forgetful which not only frustrates those around her but also herself as it becomes difficult to make friends and to focus on her school work, she does try her best, mainly getting help from her foster parents, step-sisters and step brother. While she always has a low opinion about herself, she’ll always have something good to say to friends and just to people. She is always willing to help at a moment’s notice though again she can get easily side-tracked and sometimes turn to day dreaming. Although the one thing that does seem to help Lil’Ash’s focus is sports, mainly football and sometimes ruby, she is able to keep most focus during her sports and activities around it, while not the best player she does have some knack for sports.
PAST: Lil’Ash was left at the same orphanage as Ashelya and Rika, she was aged 5. Her parents were finding it difficult to raise her as they were having issues themselves and didn’t have enough money to support their daughter. While they did feel terrible having to leave their daughter they knew it would be better this way as she wouldn’t be involved in the sometimes violent fights her parents allegedly had, some she had already been witnessed too. Lil’Ash was deeply depressed by the separation from her parents, throwing her emotions out of balanced even more than they already were, she slowly becoming more violent , not towards people but to herself, kicking, punching and even head-butting walls, doors, fences ect. Ashelya was usually the one to help calm her down, mainly by pinning her down until her anger subsided. Ashelya would try to help Lil’Ash with self harm and hyper activeness, while she couldn’t do much apart from keep her occupied with something, whether it was taking her and her younger sister Rika to the park, playing a board game or helping her with school work. Lil’Ash started to latch onto Ashelya, looking up to her like a sister, something Ashelya didn’t mind considering she had a younger sister and got along well with her even giving her the nickname Lil’Ash to save confusion with her own name.
School was the most difficult time for Lil’Ash, she was finding it hard to work, she wasn’t able to really concentrate on her work, finding herself easily difficult to focus on a given subject or task and usually trying to do too much at once especially when working in a group of people which didn’t help her make friends, she didn’t act mean to people, she just confused and annoyed fellow classmates which did lead to some bullying, something Ashelya didn’t take sitting down and defended Lil’Ash on a daily basis while also dealing with her own bullies. It was then Ashelya started teaching her how to fight, something the care workers at the orphanage didn’t take too well when they were called to the school about Lil’Ash putting another child in a headlock and kicking another in the ‘unmentionables’. While Lil’Ash was given detention, Ashelya was grounded and not allowed access to the TV for 5 days. Which didn’t help Lil’Ash’s moods since she couldn’t see Ashelya as much anymore since she and Rika were adopted and due to Ashelya being grounded, she couldn’t visit, it was during this time that Lil’Ash’s behaviour got worse and began to become more noticeable to some.
It was only when one teacher took her to the side and asked her a few questions as to why she found it difficult to stay focused on her work. After speaking to her in detail about it, he mentioned that she may have a learning difficultly that no one has been bothered to look into, he noticed as he had a child with learning problems and his child’s symptoms were similar to that of Lil’Ash. He then wrote a letter and told her to make sure it goes to your care workers, they’ll make an appointment and hopefully things will be a little clearer. While Lil’Ash didn’t understand much of the conversation with her teacher, she was thankful that someone wanted to help and see if they could figure out why these she was having these problems. Although in the time it took Lil’Ash to meet with Ashelya and walk home, she forgot about giving the letter to her care workers right away, thankfully one of the carers emptied out her bag and found the letter addressed to them. After reading through the letter, they sat down with Lil’Ash and had a chat with her about what she and her teacher spoke out, unfortunately she didn’t remember much of the conversation she had with him, still a little confused themselves they decided to take the advice of the teacher and take Lil’Ash to the GP. After listing off some of the symptoms to the doctor, he wasn’t able to tell anything was wrong straight away but did look into Lil’Ash’s medical history from other times she had be brought in and ask that the carers keep an eye on her behaviour and take notes over the next few days while he dug up her medical history.
While did take longer than a couple of days, more or less than a month the doctor rang back and asked to bring Lil’Ash back, so he could review the notes and compare with it her medical history and other’s medical history who had some of the same issues. After some time the doctor came to the conclusion that Lil’Ash was ADHD, not a very serve case of it but still it was there and causing her problems. Another few weeks past and Lil’Ash was given medication to help cope, a drug called Methylphenidate to start off with at a low dose and if no improvement then maybe consider raising the dose. She was also taken to see a therapist every so often to keep an eye on her mental health and started to receive more help with her school work and extra time for her end of school exams. Lil’Ash’s mood started to improve and she was able work much better in school and her behaviour toward other students was better.
At 13 years old, things were starting to go quite smoothly for Lil’Ash, after that, of course she still had her issues, even more so during her time at high school but she was still receiving help from teachers, care workers and Ashelya. After much encouragement from PE teachers, Lil’Ash started to take part in more sports related activities to help get let out some frustrations and to help her get along with getting rid of that excess energy she had. She soon started taking part in the school football club and started making more friends. It was during her time in high school that Ashelya and Rika’s foster parents decided to adopt once more as their son and oldest of their children Alran was moving into his own apartment. Something Ashelya got fully involved in helping them in deciding on whether they should or not. After much debating and careful coaxing in Ashelya’s part, Karin and Nicholas Reid decided on adopting another child and they had an idea on who they wanted. After a few months of paperwork and such, Lil’Ash was adopted into the Reid’s family and Ashelya managed to keep this a surprise for her. She helped Lil’Ash to pack, after some teary goodbyes to the care workers and some of the other children; she was off to her new home with Ashelya leading the way. Lil’Ash didn’t have any idea until Ashelya took her upstairs and showed her what would be her new room. A little welcome sign held by Rika and they told her she’d be living with them. At first, she was shocked that they managed to keep this secret, angry for the fact they kept it a secret but she was thrilled that she would be living with her now step-sisters.
Things are still going well for Lil’Ash, she has had to change her medication and therapy but she’s taking it in her stride. She’s now in college, retaking some of her exams that she didn’t do well in and hoping to take a course that involves more sports.
