Twila: The Capped Girl with Uncapped Potential
Now that the holidays are winding down, we’re back to introducing our main characters for our latest project! Let’s start off the new year with a much-needed introduction to Twila.
Have you ever felt like people don't see you for who you are, but rather see some sort of caricature of you? Like you represent something you didn't even sign up for? Do you feel like people tend to notice what's different, not what's the same?
Imagine if you couldn't tell who was being genuine with you, versus those who saw you as some sort of object, like you don't even have feelings.
This has been Twila's entire life, where people have defined her position and significance for her. Humans have looked down upon her for not being fully human. Her classmates treat her differently, bully her, and generally make her life harder, while adults try to dance around how they think she's different and talk down to her.
Frankly, she's fed up with it.
Quiet, despondent, and not one to mince her few words, Twila is a half Dimi who wants to be around others who see her for who she really is. She is very bright, to the point where her Drive skills are nothing to scoff at. She has a tendency to wear her emotions on her sleeve around those she trusts. She's not one for words, so she needs to express herself somehow, problem is: it's really hard to gain her trust.
Her powers come from her burning hatred of those who looked down on her, culminating in her ability to directly wield Elemelons, which would be dangerous for other people. If driven far enough, her rage may have explosive results, watch out!
If given the chance, she'd be really sweet and caring to those who care about her. She's the type of friend who isn't afraid to tell you exactly how things are, her sometimes brutal honesty is much appreciated in a world of platitudes. It takes a long time to build up trust with her, due to her history, but having a friend like her is one you'll wanna keep for life.
Sometimes all it takes is one person to notice you to change everything, to make this world seem like a better place. Twila starts her journey in the pits of despair, and it'll be up to Jae and crew to help her through these troubling times.
We hope you grow to empathize with Twila, understand what she's been through, and perhaps learn to love her, despite it all, as much as we have.
