Character type: Harper
Appearance: All her life, Xoa's been average. Average height, average weight, average looks. It's been frustrating! Not slim and trim, but with a few extra pounds that she can't seem to loose, a bottom that's too big and a chest that's too small. She just can't seem to win. She's been forever doomed to be pear shaped. Short legs are ended by large feet, and her thighs just don't match her more shapely calves; added to that she has some darned chubby arms that refuse to mold into any kind of firm shape!
Personality: In spite of her lack of beauty, Xoa has remained good natured and has a breezy, nonchalant attitude. She is how she is, and if people don_t like it, they can go hop off a cliff. She's accepted that she'll never be a raving beauty, but that doesn't stop her from trying to lose those few pounds, and she has a remarkable amount of self-confidence in spite of it all.
History: Xoa would say that her life had never been extraordinary, and she would be very right in that regard. Normal upbringing, the average (sigh) nice caring mother, the average hard working father. One older sister, one younger brother, who never did anything grand. Both are married, both have children, and both work at their parents small holding. Nothing great, nothing depressing. They just...are.
