Pepper is an oc of mine. I just couldn't wait to make a project of her ref or backstory so lol here:
Pepper is a 19 year old female. She has been to juvie for crashing a car and killing seven people. More on that later.
she has mid length brown hair with freckles dotting her cheeks. She's 5'5 and skinny with a few curves. She has greenish brown eyes and usually wears anything along the lines of shorts and pants, she finds any skirt or dress extremely uncomfortable. Her usual outfit is a pair of shorts with a graphic tee and a grey jacket if needed with red converse.
Pepper's mom died of cancer in Montana two months after she turned thirteen, so the Greif is raw. She can be emotionally unstable and moody some days if she doesn't get enough sleep, usually due to insomnia and the fact that she cries herself to sleep every night. Her father made them move to Oregon after "The Mom Incident," and he works as a mechanic in Portland, usually attending work on every day of the week and Saturday (6:30-5:45) trying to make enough money to support his family (Pepper and her cat that overeats, Mr. Snuggles the Forty Seventh.)
When she was thirteen, she had been called by a demon to attend to some business in Montana. She hitched a ride with a few people, and when the driver got hurt, se volunteered to drive and crashed the car after a good fourteen hours of driving, killing the seven of her friends in the car. She was revived by the Demon who had called her, and he gave her a necklace, explaining that he was the one that had killed her mother, who once owned it. Pepper swore revenge on this demon and wears the necklace 24/7.
Pepper is usually very laid back, but she has some fears that make her sleep uneasily. She's very afraid of losing her Father, because if he dies, she has no relatives to live with. She's also terrified of the dark, snakes, loud noises, parties, and her father's machine shop, since it is usually very busy, and people who work there are constantly getting hurt, one person even killed.
A year after therapy and trials for the Car Incident, she began to lose her mind. Depression drowned her, and she was permanently broken, the therapy didn't help. It had been a few years, and she graduated high school when she was 16, skipping one or two grades for her genius. She dropped out of college to pursue a career in Paranormal Investigation and other things. She made a fake ID for herself, and she is usually seen in parties, trying desperately to forget her past.
Her cat is an oriental shorthair with a white patch over his chest and left eye. He's cross-eyed, and one of his eyes is green and the other brown. He's quite chubby as well, often being mistaken for a furry beachball.
Pepper loves exploring the woods, and she is a bit of a hopeless romantic. She often flirts without meaning to.
Pepper enjoys hot chocolate A LOT (she loves rain and cold weather,) and she has a love for geography and astronomy. She'll do almost anything for her friends, and she is very artsy and loves playing guitar and singing.
Her mom was Italian and her father is American. She has a very very slight accent and can speak Italian quite fluently and enjoys yelling at people in other languages to make them uncomfortable.
I feel as if I have to include some weird facts, so here:
She's awkward most of the time.
She's really ticklish and holds a grudge against anyone who tries to tickle her.
She cannot garden, every plant she touches dies.
She's an emopath, so she can sense the emotions of others. This makes it hard for her to be in public spaces, aka parties. If she is too overwhelmed she will pass out without warning. Her dad knows of this, and this is partially the reason he moved her to a small town. Ever since she visited the ghost dimension, she has taken a liking for the dead, for she cannot sense their emotions.
