Remember this pretty face?
I've been working on Lana and fleshing her out as a character. =Zweeni
has been helping out a lot with that, since her character was involved in Lana's past. I've got SOME things on her, so I'm just going to list them until I have a full bio on her! (Also, correct pronunciation of her name is "lan-uh", not "lah-nuh").Some things about Lana:
She left home at a young age because she was the middle child and was highly ignored. She couldn't stand living in her sister's shadow. However, she did love her little brother, who accepted her no matter what.
Lana misses her little brother every day. He is the only reason she regrets leaving home. She keeps a picture of her and her brother tucked away inside the pocket of her vest that she likes to wear.
Lana became a mercenary as a young teenager, earning her keep and living by doing odd jobs that came her way. She loved the thrill and the danger of these jobs. It was what she wanted to do. She learned how to use different weapons, though knives were her favorite to use--and still are.
She learned through trial and error how to do parkour. Seriously...was not an easy thing to learn.
Lana has some past with =Zweeni
's OC Zhen...a LOT of past, actually. They hated each other so much because they kept getting in each other's way, but truthfully, there was a physical (and sexual) attraction between them. It even took them as far as the bedroom, but there was never any true love between them. Just attraction.
After Lana left Zhen behind to continue her own pursuits, she discovered that she was pregnant with Zhen's child. Afraid that she could never love the child because it belonged to someone she didn't really love, she aborted the fetus before it could grow anymore. It scarred her mentally because it was something she had never wanted to do, but she kept telling herself it was for the best.
Lana was approached for a job to find out some juicy info on the Espeon Family (also belonging to =Zweeni
), but at the last minute, Lana decided she didn't want to betray those that were practically related to her (Eeveelution thing going on there) and divulge information that could destroy them. Lana rejected the job and the reward. The Family that had wanted the information figured that Lana probably had the information on the Espeons and hired someone to hunt her down for interrogation. Lana, naturally, is trying to avoid being caught.
A few years after not seeing Zhen, Lana runs into him yet again under bad circumstances, in which she is trying to get away from the bounty hunter. Zhen helps her and after some scary, near-death instances, it's revealed that he has loved Lana all along, despite the way they treat each other. Lana then realizes that she never hated Zhen at all and regrets the choices she made in the past.
That's about it so far! I'll more as I develop Lana more. :]
