She's a 14-year-old girl , and she's a professor .


Of average height and bulky , her lank coal-black hair and green eyes make her shy and self-aware . She's transparent and tactless.


She has a small family , and she's the spirit of the holidays .


Her core belief is "anything can be laughed off." Her biggest fear is of bats.


Cross her and you’ll get a knife in your back. Do well by her and you’ll get undying love.

Write her story.
