RP: Persona RP
Name: Layla Shepard
Occupation: Full time student with a part time job...somewhere I won't mention.
Major: Child Psychology
Appearance: Layla stands about 5'4, with medium long brown hair, usually tied in a ponytail, or held up with a hair clip shaped like a morning glory. She has wispy bangs that cover her forehead, and her pale skin and soft features are accentuated by her eyes, a mix of blue, green and hazel. She is usually dressed in button up shirts that are half open, revealing a contrasting colored undershirt, or a normal t shirt with a denim jacket, and switches between jeans or gypsy skirts. often wears boots, but sometimes will opt for sneakers.
Edit: Her eyes are blue green with a hazel/gold ring around the pupil. They shift in color depending on the time of day (green in early morning or night, almost completely blue around midday. Gold ring is always present).
Personality: Layla is someone of a motherly type person, often doting on and caring for her friends to an extreme. She will often take extreme amounts of effort to take care of her friends. This means that she will make it her business to make sure that her friends and those around her are well taken care of.
Weapon of choice: Not really one for combat, Layla has studied Aikido, and has specialized in using a bokken. However, after finding out about a judo club at Altisa, she joined, and has started learning. She's not that good at it, but she enjoys the exercise.
Backstory: Born in northern California, Layla grew up in a normal home, in a normal family. She got good grades and had a few friends. Nothing out fo the ordinary.
At least that's how she tells it.
Layla only ever talks about the normal parts of her past, and anyone who doubts her is told that anything she hasn't said isn't important.
It was rumored that during her middle school years, a boy at her school died in an accident. No one here really knows if she was close to this person, but it still affected her. It pretty much affected everyone who knew him. It can mess with a kid, knowing that someone their age can die. Ever since then, Layla has taken to counseling her friends, and she had a natural talent for it. Ever since, she has had the dream of being a psychologist. She's 3 years in to her studies, and still has a long way to go.
At Altisa, she is very active in quite a few clubs, including the Mycological photography club, the Clean campus society (students that make it their mission to end litter and keep their school clean), The Inner Sanctum club (a social club for psychology students), Spectrum Student organization (LGBT support club) and is even the current head of one of the Fraternities. She also volunteers every other weekend at a local orphanage, doing a big sister program for teens awaiting adoption.
