Name: Rachel Gettys
School: Bayview Secondary School
Hobbies and Interests: President of GODspeed, Hockey
Appearance: Rachel is attractive in an ugly-person-on-the-inside-but-what-a-body kind of way. Standing at 5 foot five, weighing in at 122 pounds, and sporting a not-small 34B cup measurement (or whatever the term is), Rachel is classically attractive. She wears her chestnut-coloured, shoulder-length hair straight, and offsets the darkness of the hair with her somewhat-pale skin and bright blue eyes. She often dresses conservatively, wearing sweaters, blouses and skirts that go to at least knee-length. Her only indulgences apparel-wise are the often-slinky dresses she wears for special occasions and her obsession with shoes.
Biography: Rachel is old money - her father, renowned local businessman J.H. Big Jim Gettys, is the hereditary CEO of a large agricultural production and distribution company, an offshoot from her great-great-grandfather's days as a cotton producer and slave driver in Georgia (a reputation her family has yet to shake off); her mother, Emily Monroe Gettys, is the daughter of a preacher from the other side of the state who struck it lucky when he was picked up for a syndicated Sunday morning television show, 'The Lord is my Shepherd', in the 1960s, and became one of the pioneers of the televangelist phenomenon, though he presented his last episode in 1972 and retired with a tidy sum of cash in the bank. Rachel knows the history behind her family, and, most importantly, she knows it makes her better than everyone else, and she often makes no attempt to hide such knowledge. She flaunts her wealth, rubs it in the noses of the less-fortunate, and is generally quite a bitch about it.
However, she's by no means intolerant of other people. Being a devout Roman Catholic, shes friends with many of the Catholics in her school, and as one of the founders of Bayview Secondary Schools Christian organisation GODspeed, her tentacles spread far and wide in the Christian youth community. Outside of the (white) Christian youth community and (white) fellow affluent citizens of St. Paul she associates with, Rachel is a wing on the schools girls hockey team, and has one of the highest scoring rates in her teams competition.
Rachel is a diligent student, being top of her Religious Studies class and getting consistently good, if not outstanding, grades in English, History, Mathematics and Biology (a subject she takes so as to specifically find and harass the atheists and agnostics at Bayview Secondary). She often rubs people up the wrong way, be they of a different race, belief system or class than her, but thats not because of any familial turmoil no, shes just rich, entitled, and generally a nasty person.
Advantages: Rachel has a mean hitting arm due to her proficiency in hockey, and her conservative roots mean shes handled more than a few guns in her time. She also doesnt trust anyone who isnt rich, white or Catholic, which, luckily for her, means she wont trust most of the people out for her blood.
Disadvantages: Shes a bitch. A prize bitch. As such, shes an obvious target for, well, death. She also has a tendency towards being arrogant and aggrandizing, and this could cause tensions to rise between her and those she knows.
Designated Number: Female Student no. 87
Designated Weapon: A Tambourine
Conclusion: It's a pity this little bigot didn't end up with a weapon that could truly rain Holy Fire down on her classmates. Oh well, maybe she can accompany herself on that tambourine when she sings her funeral hymn...
