I'm not sorry.
So this is Sparkles--I mean, Sres Palk.
This is reeaalllyy not how I imaged her coming out. I think I originally planned on making her pale skin and blonde (?), but then she came out like this. And so here she is, with her trusty sidekick Vavs (V4V59871). But if I'm being honest with myself, her appearance will probably go through a drastic change half-way through the story. Like, Latina to ginger kind of change. But we'll see.
Originally I wasn't going to give her a really detailed backstory, but then I decided to not do that instead. So buckle down, because this one's a doozy:
Sparkles was born into a fairly well-off family, but they lived in a not-so-good city. When she was about three years old, members of a notorious gang broke into her house to rob the place. Her parents tried to stop them and protect her, but both of them were killed and the gang members escaped. They would've killed Sres as well, but the police got to her house in time to scare off the robbers. Unfortunately, the damage they did to her arm forced a full amputation.
After both of her parents were killed, Sres moved out of the city and into a nice/safer city. Around the time she was ten or elven, she started to see a change in her mom. The robbers caused more than just physical and financial damage to her family, and her mom started to become cruel and abusive towards Sres. She would take out her anger and fear on Sparkles, and eventually got to the point of physically hurting her. One night it got so bad, her mom cut up the child, who tried to defend herself but only made it worse. By the time she got away from her mom and got to safety, she had lost her arm.
Sres realized then that she couldn't keep being weak. When she got out of the hospital, she ran away from home and found refuge in an academy, who gave her a scholarship for her situation. At the academy, she was trained physically and mentally to be able to fight and take action in the police force.
She graduated at 17, where she immediately joined OCRA (Organized Crime Revision Agency). Working with OCRA, Sparkles was able to get surgery for a robotic prosthetic arm (which connects to the parietal lobe of her brain and allows full control) and was able to help prevent more people from suffering from the same fate as she did.
And if you're wondering how she lost her left arm, she went out on a scouting mission in training, and had a run in with a bear. She survived, but she lost her arm.
Fun fact: She is ripped. I'm talking six-pack, thigh-gap, only-eats-protein kind of ripped. Look at those calves. Dang.
