Background: Found at the age of 7 in the street, didn't remember anything about her past, was a little sceptic, didn't want to come to the orphanage, because she said 'She had to wait for someone'.
Family: She doesn't know.
Personality: Quite cheerful, a little paranoid, doesn't like it when people mock/talk about her past, blunt, a bit kind, can be mean, but doesn't mean it. Nosey. A little dark, and mysterious.
Interests: Girly-ish things, she's nosey, so, other people? Gossip stuff, likes being alone at odd times, likes mythical stuff, like spells and that sorta thing, enjoys old books, and has a few under her bed that she somehow got.

Lonliness_the_worst_pain's character ~
Name: Macey (Nickname May) Thomson
Gender: Female
Age: 14
Appearance: Straight blonde hair with streaks of pink, brown eyes that have a tint of red in them. She's a little on the shorter side but has a strong jaw.
Background: At the age of 10, her parents died in a car crash on their way home from a party. Apparently they were both to drunk to think straight. None of her other family wanted her so she was sent to the orphanage.
Family: She has no siblings but does know of an Uncle who she has never met.
Personality: Is a bit rude and bossy to the others. She is brutally honest and doesn't care if the truth hurts your feelings. Despite this, she can make friends with her cheerful smile and talkative attribute. Has a boy complex, meaning she wants to prove a girl can do anything I guy can.
Interests: She loves animals so it wouldn't be odd to see her sneaking in a frog, rabbit, or something even bigger. She also likes exercising in hopes of being as strong as any boy.
Other: Dies.
If Storm is the one who kills her, I was thinking it's because May mocks and teases her about her past and the someone she was waiting for. To the point where Storm is infuriated enough to hurt her.
