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.
As mentioned before, I'm updating my characters a bit. Mainly since it’s been awhile sometime and I was a dumb...very dumb child when I first made them, so I'm hoping that I'm making them a little more relatable in some cases. Anyways~
Name: Eliza Sorin
Birthday: 9th October
Personality While Eliza may look intimidating due to her size and scars she is actually rather nice once you get to know her. Eliza isn't known for being very chatty and will usually just keep to herself but if anyone needs her help, she is happy to give them it. She is a hard worker and always sets out to do her best at tasks that confront her which isn't always good as she can and will get competitive, not in the good way. Eliza is prone to bad moods, whether it is due to stress from working or simply waking up on the wrong side of the bed. She can also be very protective, especially when it comes to her family and her girlfriends which make it difficult for her to hold onto a steady relationship.
Eliza cares a great deal for her family and friends, leading to this need to protect them and usually puts others first before herself. She knows how to fight but will avoid it if she can though it does come in handy at her mother's bar where she acts as bouncer and most nights there. Eliza works 2 jobs, a part-time bouncer as mentioned before and also a gym instructor full time while the job doesn't pay all too well, she finds that it’s worth it as she can work out more often.
Past Eliza was the first of 3 children to her mother, Shizuka and her father Aiden. They didn't have much money but life was simple. Eliza was close with both her father and mother; Aiden would take Eliza to work in his garage, letting her help with fixing cars and began her fascination with motorcycles. When Eliza was 6, her parents had another child, a little boy who they named Lucas. As years went by, family life was starting to become difficult, their father was finding it hard to support his family as a repairman at a garage he part owned with a friend. Shizuka managed to find work at her father's bar as part-time work, so they could get by. Eliza and Lucas were mainly left in the care of their grandmother who lived above the bar, which made it easier for Shizuka to keep an eye on her children. Things between their parents had soured during this time, both Eliza and Lucas noticed their parents arguing more and in some rare times, it would become violent, at that point they were sent to their grandparent’s house to avoid the fighting. Eliza helped whenever she could throughout the years, whether it was helping to clean the bar or learning and helping her father working on cars and motorbikes.
When Eliza turned 13, it was then her mother discovered that she was pregnant once more, things slowly started to go downhill after the months went on. Aiden's father was struck by an illness and passed away, leaving him devastated and angry, during all this Aiden started drinking more, hoping to sooth his pain and avoid the stress of family life. Shizuka was finding it hard to work at the bar and had to stay at home. Their parent's arguments became more frequent and the violence was getting out of hand. Eliza found herself taking care of her little brother, making sure he had something to eat and taking him to school while her father was too hung-over to work and her mother couldn't even move out of bed, too afraid to face her husband. Eliza would then pick up Lucas from school and take him to their grandparents, making sure everything was 'okay' before bring him back into the house. It was then Eliza would clean up, and make sure her parents were alright. It was this time when her father was starting to become more violent towards her, another reason Eliza would leave her brother at their grandparents to make her Lucas wouldn’t get hurt by their father.
Shizuka was now 8 months heavily pregnant and depressed. She and her children were afraid of Aiden and his drunken rages. It was one day when Aiden came back from bar late at night and another argument sparked between him and Shizuka, waking Eliza and Lucas up. Both of them heard a lot of banging coming from downstairs, Lucas began to cry due to the noise. Aiden shouted up the stairs, demanding his young son to stop crying. Eliza tried her best to calm her little brother down but to no avail, Aiden was getting more annoyed and eventually stormed up the stairs and smashed through the door to the children’s room, ranting and raving, punching the door and smashing the bottom of a bottle against the wall, Eliza hid her younger brother behind her, to protect him from getting hit. Shizuka quickly followed him up the stairs after hearing the glass smashing, she tried her best to push him out of the room but Aiden shoved her away, knocking her over and hitting her head on the bed. Lucas cried more, and jumped down to his mother. Shizuka was fine but had a nasty bruise on her head, but Aiden had enough. Picking Lucas up by his shirt, and shouting in his face to shut up, before he could hurt Lucas, Eliza jump from the bed and slammed into her father, causing him to let go of Lucas. Eliza let out her anger on Aiden, punching and kicking him, not letting up for a second, Aiden not remembering the smashed bottle in his hand and filled with rage, slashed her across the face with it. Eliza was knocked out and her face spilling with blood. Eliza was told that her mother smashed Aiden over the head with a chair, knocking him out as well then quickly rang the police and an ambulance; during that time Shizuka did her best to stop the bleeding.
Eliza was hospital for a week, receiving 28 stitches across her face causing the scar she still has to this day. Aiden was arrested and charged with assault and causing bodily harm to his wife and children. During Eliza’s time in hospital, her mother and brother were forced to live in a safe house due to Aiden getting bail and he was to live in the family home under strict conditions until his court hearing in a few months. During this, Shizuka gave birth to a baby girl that she named Eris. It was hard, raising 3 children on her own but Eliza being the oldest did her best to help. She would handle night feedings for Eris, while she would take Lucas to school. Eliza took up little jobs around the neighbourhood from Newspaper delivery, dog walking and the odd job she was asked to help fixing cars remembering things her father had taught her before his drunken rages. Eliza did try and still attend school when she could but had trouble during a lot of the lessons, mainly because she had to take so many days off that she would miss important parts and have to play catch up. Eliza’s little jobs, didn’t give out much money but most of the money she earned from them would go straight to her mother, while Shizuka felt ashamed that Eliza had to do this to help, she had no choice but to accept her daughters help, even when Shizuka started to work back in the bar, they still struggled with money. Eliza would usually keep a little money aside, mainly saving up for something she had always wanted, a guitar. Inspired by bands she had listened to and watched on TV, she wished to play her favourite songs, she took up guitar lessons at school. Due to her mother’s financial problems, Eliza’s music teacher gave Eliza free lessons, only if she helped the school band and singing classes, mainly helping to set up chairs, instruments and doing the heavy lifting for the most part. Eliza happily accepted. It was a good chance for Eliza to finally sit and talk with people and have some much needed rest from the stresses of home. It was here that Eliza met Ashelya; both became good friends despite Eliza not being around in school much.
During the years, when Eliza was 14, her father was convicted and imprisoned for 8 years and would be giving help for his alcohol and anger problems. Shizuka did visit him from time to time and even took Eris, who had only seen in photos. Sometimes Lucas would go, at first he was too afraid to speak to her father but has gotten more comfortable. Eliza flat out refuses to see him, and completely disowns him as her father. During this time Eliza was bulking herself up, mainly to help with her mechanic work and to feel better about herself. Building her strength and her muscles seemed to make her feel protected. She did start of slow but it soon between like an addiction, any time she could, she was work out and exhaust herself.
At 17, Eliza headed into college with her friend Ashelya. It was difficult to past the introduction to get into college due to her grades and attendance to school, but after some explaining and proving she would give it her all to attend this; she just managed to join, taking classes in music and mechanics. Since Lucas was now 14 and doing well on his own in school, Shizuka was less stressed at home and caring for little Eris now only 4, Eliza had a lot more free time to spend with friends while still doing some part time jobs, even fixing fellow students cars. Most of her time was spend with Ashelya, who she began to have feelings for, after many awkward moments between the 2, Ashelya started to share those same feelings and after some more clumsy moments on Eliza’s behalf, the 2 began dating Between college, helping her family and dating, things started to get better for Eliza.
After leaving college, Eliza found herself a job at the gym she worked out at and again still worked as a part time handyman. Things were simple, her relationship with Ashelya was running smoothing, even though Eliza could be a little overbearing, they both deeply cared for one another. Eliza family life was fine as well, finding she had enough money to move into her own place, close by the bar so she wasn’t too far away. It was only when Eliza turned 21 that she became more anxious, as her father had be released from jail. There was a guideline set up for Aiden to see his children, mainly Eris being the youngest, something Eliza was too happy about. Aiden took back his job at the garage again and started fresh but Eliza caught up with him there, while her father was apologetic to his oldest daughter, seeing her for the first time in 8 years and seeing the marks he left, she completely ignored him and threatened him. Telling him that if he laid a finger on Shizuka, Lucas or Eris that she would beat him to death with her own hands. She left it at that, hoping it is the last of it but her father spoke with Shizuka about the threat. While Shizuka understood her daughters tempter she didn’t want her threaten him. Eliza didn’t apologise to Aiden but she did to her mother.
Eliza relationship with Ashelya had become strained with all the problems Eliza was having with her tempter. She became protective over Ashelya; Eliza didn’t want her sitting in bars alone without her, or walking home without her. Always fearing the worse would happen to Ashelya. After some time it was too much for Ashelya. After it became too much for Ashelya, she and Eliza had a long talk. Eliza tried her best to explain herself and even promising things would change, it didn’t change Ashelya’s mind. So, after long teary break up, Eliza and Ashelya went their separate ways. The breakup left Eliza quite devastated but she had to keep going, and continued working to help her family. Eliza had a few on and off relationships but then she meets Violet, a timid young woman wanting to build her strength up at the gym. Eliza was left speechless when first meeting Violet, falling for her instantly.
Eliza still works at the gym, and is slowly winning Violet over with her clumsy nature and awkward chats. She managed to buy herself a bike and learnt to drive, becoming a real motor head in the process. Eliza always makes time for her family and especially Eris, who has Eliza, wrapped round her little finger.
