I saw yesterday that someone on Write and Share posted a character bio about the main character of their book. I thought that was a really good idea so I did one for one of the main characters in my book - Jai. She's my favourite character in the book, with the exception of Stitches :)
My name's Jai. I had a second name, long ago, but since then I've forgotten it. It's not as if it matters anyway, right?
I'm the leader of the Bulldogs - it's a street gang in Glasgow. I would tell you where we live, but one of the Tigers might be listening. They're a rival gang and they killed my brother years ago, when I was only 9. I hate them and they're leader Stripes - he's a right a**hole!
I have brown, scruffy hair and pale blue eyes, like ice. I don't care much for appearances - people on the streets are invisible. Mothers walk straight past us, looking after bawling babies, businessmen glare at us like it's our fault the country's in a recession. I always wear jeans and a jumper, even in summer.
I'd like to think that I was generally level-headed person but, to be honest, I'm not. I have more mood swings than an hormonal pregnant woman. I'm angry, then I'm happy, I'm tense, then I'm loose, I'm annoyed, then I'm...well you get the picture.
I love chocolate and I get some whenever I can, which isn't often. I hate cabbage and mince - especially together in one of Stitches "mystery meals".
Anyway..that's pretty much me. I could tell you about my background, but there's not much you need to know other than the fact I ran away. The rest is too painful...
So, I'll see you around and if you live in Glasgow, keep an eye out for me ;)
Yeah...that's pretty much Jai in a nutshell. I might tell you more about her as the book progresses but it depends :)
I'll leave with some pics of summery things :D
I <3 cherries :P
