Name: Teresa James--commonly referred to as TJ
Job: Although she is not proud to admit it, TJ works at a small diner washing dishes. It's a job...and it helps to make ends meet.
Personality: TJ is often thought of as bitchy due to her lack of interaction with others, but it is more a shyness than anything else. She comes from the wrong side of the tracks, raised in poverty with several siblings and a single mother. She hasn't managed to pull herself far from her roots, but she is smart as a whip when it comes to living on the streets. She has a potty mouth and is often vulgar in her comments, rarely thinking twice before she talks...which can be seldom if she is in certain company. She chain smokes cigarettes and is not a stranger to stronger drugs when she can afford them.
--Lock picking--years of practice have allowed TJ to enter almost any residence she desires.
--Limber--Being thin has it advantages. TJ is quite flexible and can maneuver her body easily allowing for quick escapes. She is a slippery little devil.
--Basic survival--although she is not strong, TJ knows how to fight and is not above cheating to win. She can make a fire from scratch and construct a shelter using items at her disposal.
--Social interactions--TJ knows she is not the smartest girl on the block. She has her GED, but does not speak well enough to pass as middle-class. She is easily intimidated by people who are likely to look down on her, preferring to ignore them rather than show her lack of etiquette.
--Personal Hygiene--TJ would be considered homeless, the dilapidated roof over her head belonging to a condemned residence. Without electricity or running water, she often suffers from body odor and greasy hair, washing only occurring when she makes a trip to a public restroom to use their sink. If nothing else, she does manage to keep her teeth clean, brushing often with baking soda and water.
Hidden ability: Magnetism. TJ's hidden talent allows her to interact with metallic items in her vicinity. She has an enhanced magnetic aura which permits movement or manipulation of smaller items with her mind, giving her the ability to open locked doors or twist frames by thought alone.
Element: Earth. Although it is not something she has been exposed to often, TJ is drawn to nature (plants and trees).
