Name: Coleen Reagan
School: Cochise High School
Hobbies and Interests: Theatre, singing, reading, cosmetics
Appearance: Coleen is a somewhat tall girl of average weight, standing 58 tall and weighing around 150 pounds. She has icy blue eyes and long, straight, blonde hair that reaches past her shoulders in the back. Her skin is a pale white, a sign of her Celtic heritage. Her ears are slightly smaller than average and stick flat to the sides of her head; they are seldom visible unless her hair is back. Her hair is trained to hang over the left side of her face to cover up facial scarring. The scars, caused by boiling water, extend from her left temple to about half an inch from the bridge of her small and rounded nose, from her eyebrow down her cheek and even onto part of her neck. The outside corner of her eyebrow is missing as a result.
Apart from the scar, Coleens face is remarkably unblemished and she takes great pains to keep it that way, and so she could be fairly considered a very beautiful girl. She frequently uses makeup to blush her cheeks to make them appear even fuller than they already are, and favors red lipstick that accentuates the warmth of her face. Her eye shadow is a few shades of blue darker than her eyes in order to compliment them. Shes mostly comfortable with the shape of her body, though her chest is a bit smaller than shed like and she holds just a little bit of extra weight around her waist. She is fashion conscious and attempts to dress herself nicely, favoring skirts of at least knee-length, usually down to her calf or ankle. Coleen is adverse to piercings, fearing they could get caught on something and injure her, so she avoids most jewelry aside from a simple silver chain she sometimes wears around her neck. Her favorite color is green, and it frequently reflects in her attire - whether it be her blouses, her skirts, or both. Finally, she is usually seen wearing her favorite pair of brown high-top boots, though theyre usually covered up by her skirts or dresses.
On the day of her abduction, Coleen was wearing a pea-green blouse with a forest-green skirt, as well as her favorite boots.
Biography: Coleen Reagan was born on December 1st, 1996, to Daryl and Heather Reagan in Scottsdale, Arizona. Shortly after Coleens birth, the Reagans moved from Scottsdale to Phoenix, the first of many moves that would occur over the course of her childhood through the following Arizona cities: Phoenix, Tonopah, Wickenburg, Seligman, Paulden and finally Kingman. The moves were necessitated by Heathers unemployment and Daryls inability to keep a steady job. Their living arrangements depended on whether or not they were living off of the government, fluctuating from well-furnished apartments or housing when money was being made, to poor neighborhoods and trailers when times were tougher. The Reagans' families were of little help: Daryl's father was dead of lung cancer at the age of 45 just a mere five years before Coleen's birth, Daryl's mother was in poverty herself and lived alone in Nevada, and Heather's parents lived in Maryland, unable to distribute their meager wealth between each of their five children. In spite of their financial insecurity, Coleens parents were very happy together and raised their child to the best of their ability.
Unfortunately, even with her parents as loving as they were, tragedy struck one April afternoon when Coleen was just three years old. Heather was boiling some water in preparation for cooking lunch for herself and her daughter, and left the kitchen of their Wickenburg home unattended to take a phone call. In the minute Heather wasnt watching her daughter, Coleen had reached onto the electric range in curiosity, pulling the small pot of boiling water down onto herself. While she was lucky to have turned her face to avoid blinding herself, she received severe second and third degree burns to the left side of her face and neck in addition to minor burns over her feet and legs. The injured toddler was hospitalized for nearly a week while doctors did everything they could to ensure a swift and complete recovery, but there was nothing that could be done about the facial scarring.
The hospital bills from Coleens burning set the Reagans back a great deal and, to make money matters worse, Heather was pregnant with her second child. The family was forced to move yet again, this time to Seligman, in order to have a rent they could afford off of Daryls meager earnings while Welfare and WIC took care of the rest. They all remained in Seligman for a few years, long enough for Heather to give birth to her second child, Ronald, and for Coleen to enter the first grade.
Like most kids, Coleens interaction with other children was rather limited until her first day of school, whereupon she discovered that most kids reacted with disgust, amusement, or even horror when they saw the condition of her face. Unsure of how to deal with the situation, Coleen simply wouldnt talk or play with anybody else unless they approached her first. Fortunately, there were children who could look past her disfigurement and form friendships with her, and her teacher noticed how withdrawn she could be if left unattended. Thanks to the care given to her by her teacher in helping her deal with the other kids, Coleen had a pleasant first year at school.
When the building the Reagans were living in was deemed unsafe to live in and was condemned, Daryl received a transfer at the fast food chain he was working at and moved the family to nearby Paulden. Coleen attended second and third grade in Paulden, and was unfortunately much less cared for than she was by her doting teacher in Seligman. The other kids were far crueler to her, and Coleen began to hide her face using any means she could. When her attempt at wearing a paper-plate mask was shut down by her mother, Coleen would instead guide her long hair in front of her face and pull up the neck of her shirt to hide the scars the best she could. She scored very low on quizzes and would often forget to turn in homework, largely as a result of her focusing more on hiding than learning. During her trips to the guidance counselor, she revealed that she wished she could be somebody else, or that she could just look normal and nobody would look at her funny. Coleens parents were called in to speak with Coleens teachers and counselors, but the meeting did not produce any solution to Coleens social problems. Angered at the school's inability to find a solution to Coleen's problem, her parents called up the superintendent and threatened to remove their daughter from the system if nothing could be done.
Fortune struck the Reagans when an old friend of Heathers revealed that he was starting up a landscaping company, and invited Daryl to work with him to help get the business started. As the business was based out of Kingman, taking the job would require the family to move once again. Coleen's stability in school not being an issue as she was already in a bad place, her parents sat her down and convinced her to tough out the remaining two months of her school year. The Reagans moved to Kingman almost immediately after Coleen's school year ended. The landscaping business had a strong first few months and the family moved from a trailer to a comfortable three-bedroom home, the nicest the family had lived in since Coleens birth. As the year continued, Daryls landscaping made the family truly financially secure for the first time while Coleen attended fourth grade at Kingmans elementary school.
Because of the poor treatment she had received in Paulden, Coleen initially wouldnt open up to others and was still making a habit of hiding her face at every opportunity. It was then that the music director at the school, Mrs. Vivien Martinez, took notice of Coleen and asked Heather to enroll her daughter in the schools theatre program. The elementary schools theatre was considered one of the best theatre programs of its kind in the entire state thanks to it being championed by the faculty as a more important activity to child development than sports, granting it a large amount of the school's funding. Mrs. Martinez argued that the theatre could be an outlet for Coleen to finally open up to the world, and to stop hiding her disfigurement. Her parents agreed, and Coleen began to stay after school with Mrs. Martinez in the school auditorium.
Coleen was reluctant to tie back her hair as Mrs. Martinez asked, but after extensive coaching she finally did so. Repeated exposure and being up on the stage helped to force her out of her shell and overcome her inhibitions, even if the auditorium was empty. When acting and playing a part, she finally got to experience a strange sense of normality and protection, feeling that people weren't looking at her so much as they were looking at a character. After just a couple months, Coleen was already signed up for bit parts in school plays the kids would put on. Coleen made plenty of friends through the theatre program, and those friendships blossomed into more friendships across the school. While not necessarily a popular girl who knew everybody, Coleen finally felt like she was fitting in and people werent treating her as a freak.
Elsewhere in school, Coleen performed well across the board. Now that she felt more socially comfortable, she was able to focus on her studies undaunted and her grades came up to Bs and low As, a far cry from how she was doing back in Paulden. While Coleen was doing far better socially than she had been doing before, she was still known as a largely quiet, bookish girl who would rather sit in the corner and read than go out and play. She visited the school library with her friends whenever she could, frequently checking out books and taking them home. She heavily favored fiction, often choosing titles that had been adapted to plays, dreaming about what it might be like to play certain parts.
Just before Coleen entered high school, Heather gave birth to her third and final child, Dillon. As a teenager herself at the age of fourteen, Coleen was tasked with caring for newborn Dillon as well as watching Ronald, who was four years younger than her, when her mother needed help around the house. Coleen turned out to be a kind and caring older sister who spent much of her time making sure Dillon always had his diaper changed, Ronald was keeping up with his homework, and that neither boy got too messy. This instilled a sense of responsibility in her, though it meant she had very little time to hang out with friends or hold any after-school activities other than her theatre, which carried into her attendance at Cochise and which she refused to give up.
Like many teenagers, Coleen found herself once more concerned with her overall appearance. However, where she only had to worry about how her face looked as a child, she was now introduced to fashion and wearing makeup. She had dabbled in wearing makeup before thanks to her theatre experience, but she normally had adults apply it for her and wasnt used to wearing things like mascara, eyeliner and blush in her day-to-day life at school. Fashion was easy; Coleen stuck to her single hairstyle for practical reasons and did little to mess with her hair, as it already conditioned quite well in Arizonas dry climate. For her style of dress, she went from wearing jeans all the time to nicer options such as skirts, and she changed out her pair of old tennis shoes for her favorite brown boots which she wears at every opportunity.
Makeup required a bit more effort and attention. Because of her facial scarring, Coleens skin was even more prone to drying and painfully cracking in the dry heat than most other peoples, so from her late middle school years she began to apply moisturizer to her face and neck. As time went on, she developed a preference for certain brands and moisturized as part of her morning and evening rituals. She attempted to use cover-up to hide or diminish her scarring, only to find that the compound irritated her sensitive scar tissue. To compensate, Coleen practiced applying her makeup to the parts of her face that arent always covered by her hair, blending appropriately so it wouldnt look like there was a line just under her hair where her beautiful appearance simply stopped. Her use of makeup in theatre improved as a result, though she still detested parts where her hair needed to be pulled out of her face.
During her sophomore year in Cochise, Coleen auditioned for a role in the school production of Pippin: The Musical. She received the role of one of the two muses, a role comprised mostly of narration and singing and little in the way of acting. Initially annoyed by this imbalance, Coleen only tolerated the part at first, but the theatre director insisted that she had untapped potential in her singing voice. Coleen considered herself an actor first and a singer second at best, but came to accept her singing voice and used it as a strength in order to land more roles, such as a town production of Carmen which she participated in later that same year. Her singing was good enough to attract the attention of a local band made up of four fellow Cochise students, and she now serves as their lead vocalist.
Presently, Coleen enjoys mild popularity as a polite and attractive senior student, but prefers to stay on the edge of social circles and out of the spotlight unless she's inside a literal one. She's known as a quiet girl who will be friendly and conversational when spoken to, but spends most of her free time with a book borrowed from the library. Coleen reads very frequently and puts away at least two novels a month, though she's branched out from exclusively reading fiction to also enjoying biographies and historical texts. Aside from her obvious success in theatre, Coleen excels in most of her classes. She does particularly well in English and Mathematics, but struggles in PE. She has her friends in theatre but also meshes well with the academic students, as well as anybody else who treats her with the same kindness she offers anybody else. Her very passive nature makes it easy for her to make friends or at least avoid confrontation, but abrasive people can push her around with no risk of retribution.
She is still very self-conscious about her appearance and compensates for her self-perceived shortcomings however she can. One of the best ways she bonds with other girls is by discussing makeup tips, and uses received tips to experiment with various cosmetics to find looks that suit her. Despite receiving compliments on her makeup frequently, she hasn't considered making a career out of beauty or salon work.
Coleen lives a slow-paced life and is unsure of what she wants to be in the future. Her ideal career is to be an actress, but she understands the chances of her hitting the big-time or even Broadway are slim-to-none. As a backup career, shes tentatively resting on the option of becoming a librarian or working with kids, as she handles her brothers well. Her grades are good enough that she can get into most colleges but, because she's still deciding what she wants to do with her future, she isnt sure if shes ready for the debt thats sure to cause or if college is the right option for her. Coleen currently plans to take a year off from school and find herself, hoping to apply the year after. Her parents are less than thrilled at Coleen's uncertainty but continue to remain supportive of her decisions, having a very loving relationship with their daughter.
Advantages: Coleen a bright girl with a fight-or-flight response that favors flight. Preferring to avoid confrontation wherever she can, she seeks a diplomatic approach to anything and is slow to act on impulses. She is charismatic and generally thought of as a sweet person, very good at appearing non-threatening.
Disadvantages: Coleen is timid and shy, almost guaranteeing shell never be the first to strike when the first strike often decides a battle. Her demure nature adversely affects her ability to stand up for herself, so others can impose their will on her more easily. Her pale Irish skin is sensitive to sunlight and to arid climate, her scars in particular easily drying out and causing her great physical discomfort if not attended to.
Designated Number: Female student No. 008

Conclusion: This girl is so fucked, unlike her face you can't hide how bad that weapon is with some makeup.- Josie Knight
