Queenie Calhoun is a loner, lalala~

She was born in Woodstock, New Brunswick to a young, single mother -- the result of questionable choices leading to a one-night stand. Naive and enamored, Jess Calhoun held out for the return of the charming young stranger she'd fallen for; she sought him out when her pups were born, but to no avail. Hit with a strong dose of reality and responsibility, she quickly sought the assistance of her family pack (whom she'd hoped to gain independence from) to help raise the pups. The pair were a handful, but they survived to adulthood and dispersed, able to adventure like their mother had never been able to.

And adventure Queenie did, a pack on her shoulders and a skip in her step, romancing others and drinking along the way (a perhaps genetic vice). She visited much of the eastern coast through her travels, joining bands of dogs and vagabonds, and never dared to settle. Where was the fun in staying in one place (or with one person) for so long?

2.  Personality

Myers-Briggs Type: ENTP (The Visionary)

Enthusiastic and upbeat, Queenie can be quite charming if she wants to be. She has good communication skills and enjoys banter and debate. Laidback and flexible, she is generally easy to get along with -- if one isn't annoyed with her forward, talkative behavior.

She can occasionally be blind to the needs and feelings of others if they aren't directly involved with her, and sometimes lacks sensitivity, but with her romantic partners she takes a deep interest and is very doting and devoted -- for a time. Once a possibilities of a relationship have been exhausted, she tends to drop her partner and move on to something new. She does the same with other commitments as well.

Queenie cares about the big picture and has a romanticized view of the world, so she dislikes stopping to fix finer details or performing routine tasks. She can find herself in bad situations by too quickly taking a big step forward or being "too smart for her own good," which sometimes includes being "clever" or mouthing off, boasting.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

  • Sociability: Extroverted, friendly
  • Expression: Dominant, confident
  • Alignment: True Neutral

Interests

  • Likes: Romance, men, women, alcohol, adventure, barking, singing, flowers, looking pretty, being social, roaming without purpose, debate, risk-taking
  • Dislikes: Stasis, seriousness, cruelty, boredom, cats, storms, high water, ducks

Motivations

  • Romance: Queenie is always looking for a new boyfriend/girlfriend! She likes sweeping others off their feet and indulging in whirlwind romances, though she never sticks with the same person for long.
  • Adventure: Similarly, she's always looking for the next big adventure! She loves to travel and find new places and people, as well as get into (escapable) trouble.

Fears

  • Lack of Freedom: Queenie is afraid of being tied down.
    • She moves on to the next thing without regard for her current situation, often making these decisions because she can rather than because it's best for her.
    • She is very careful not to get pregnant, as that is how her mother lost her freedom. She doesn't want kids to look after.
    • While she makes promises when it's expected of her, she can rarely be trusted to keep them.
  • Thunder, floods, being alone, ducks

Biases

  • Species: Queenie has a fondness for dogs, and sometimes insults "feral" canines, but she has no bias at heart.
  • Color: Peculiar and particular about colors and markings, Queenie likes anyone who resembles her or has unique and eye-catching markings.
  • Age: You can't do anything with kids, so what's the point of them? She is very dismissive toward children.

Sexuality

  • Bisexual
  • Queenie loves romance. She adores the chase, sweeping someone off their feet, falling for them, physical and emotional intimacy -- anything but commitment, that is. Idealistic and fanciful, she has low standards and a low attention span, often dropping a partner after a few months to pursue the next attractive person.
  • She has no preference between men and women, and changes up her role (dogged pursuer, dashing flirt, hard-to-get temptress) on a whim.

Substances

  • Queenie has been screwed over by a family history of alcoholism; let's just call her high-functioning.
    • Acquiring and drinking alcohol takes up a lot of her time and is part of her motivation for roaming and trading.
    • She has built up a tolerance for alcohol, though she doesn't binge drink. (It happened once and she almost died.)
    • Alcohol sometimes leads her into risky scenarios, and has caused many a breakup.
  • She uses other drugs (tobacco, cannabis) on occasion, often socially. She prefers tobacco when alone and smokes sometimes to cope with stress.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family

  • Mother: Jessica "Jess" Calhoun
  • Father: Jehan de l'Or
  • Siblings: Kingston Calhoun
  • Bruno Blackrust is Queenie's paternal grandfather -- not that she knows this. She met up with Bruno by coincidence and became interested in him because of their similarities (and his booze, that had something to do with it). They have a friendly, bantering relationship and look out for each other, though neither would say they were very close to the other; they don't have deep conversations.
  • Kingston Calhoun is Queenie's brother. The two were very close as children, and switched between bickering and cooperative efforts to cause trouble at the drop of a hat. She loves and misses him, sometimes wondering where he might be, but doesn't care to waste time searching for him.
  • Jess Calhoun is Queenie's mother, who sacrificed her freedom for the sake of her children's security. For that Queenie is grateful, though she repaid Jess by becoming a roamer rather than staying to help her out. They were not particularly close, though Queenie learned many of her morals from Jess.
  • Jehan de l'Or is Queenie's father, though she only knows him by name. She is curious about him, but doesn't have any true desire to seek him out and establish a relationship.
