NOW WITH AN APPEARANCE THING!
- [+] Spoiler
Standing at 5'7, Keisha stands just a bit above the average height for girls her age. Weighing 135 pounds, her body has a bit of a pear shape to it, resulting in her being somewhat lean, but having the majority of her bodily fat centered around her hips and thighs, much to her mild discontent. Her skin is a very dark brown with cool undertones, owing to her African-American heritage. On the whole, her facial features are fairly appealing, if nothing out of the ordinary, with full and pouty lips, a broad nose, a square jaw, and upturned russet brown eyes. Overall, her face has somewhat of an oval shape to it. Her teeth are fairly straight due to braces she wore for two years. Her naturally kinky black hair is usually worn in intricate cornrow box braids pulled back into a ponytail, and she has currently dyed the tips a dark red.
Typically, Keisha's dress tends toward style as much as she can, as well as making sure her clothing can fit into her budget. Bright pinks, yellows, and reds dominate her wardrobe, and she tends to prefer jeans or shorts over skirts, feeling that they often restrict her movement. In terms of footwear, she hates wearing flats, and gravitates towards knee-high boots and heels, especially a pair of brown boots she got from H&M a year ago. She usually wears makeup to accentuate her features, typically putting on a shiny lip gloss and dark eyeshadow to bring out her eyes.
While speaking, Keishas accent tends to have a fairly strong Southern accent, although one that isnt typically as slow or drawled out as ones found further down south, rather than in Memphis. Her voice sits somewhat low for a female, although merely on the lower end of what is average, and it is also naturally somewhat raspy, something that displeases her.
On the day of the abduction, Keisha was trying to dress fairly fashionably, wearing a bright pink denim jacket covered in rhinestones, a lemonade t-shirt in bright yellow, dark blue skinny jeans, as well as the aforementioned boots. In addition to this, she brought a pair of Raybans with her. She was also wearing a pair of hoop earrings. In terms of makeup, she was wearing peach lipstick, light tangerine lip gloss, peacock blue eyeshadow, nude colored blush, as well as mascara.
Originally from Memphis, Keisha's the African-American daughter of a teen mom, who's raised her and her two siblings by herself, other than some assistance from Keisha's grandmother. Her family moved to Chattanooga when she was thirteen and in 8th grade, as her mom had gotten a job as a nurse. Since then, Keisha's integrated herself fairly well into the student body, although she has a reputation for being somewhat of a gossip, which led her to join the school newspaper, as well as the debate team. On the newspaper, she's known as having a penchant for especially revealing stories, which has often led her to be given fairly poor assignments. Celebrity gossip is also something she's generally quite fond of, which means she scours TMZ near-daily to see what rumors pop up. Due to this, the subjects Keisha's most passionate about include English and History, and so she's looking forward to majoring in Journalism at Tennessee State. In addition to all of this, Keisha's mother forced Keisha to play volleyball so she would have some sort of physical activity, and while Keisha isn't great at it, she's a backbencher for the team, playing as a wing spiker. Also, she's obsessed with third-wave feminism, and you can likely expect her to be ranting about intersectionality and such other related thing. Wears her hair in box braids that just go a bit past her shoulders, currently dyeing the tips red. Idolizes Rihanna and Beyonce, secretly also a big fan of the Dixie Chicks.
Also, secretly gaygaygay but real deep in the closet. Goes to church regularly, but sometimes conflicted about faith. Recently became a cheerleader, enjoys it a lot more than volleyball.
What's she looking for?
- Friends, either through political activism, newspaper, volleyball, or cheerleading! Or debate.
- Enemies! Keisha gossips. A lot. And so, she's made more than a few enemies around the school, and she doesn't hesitate to start arguments with those she considers racist or just generally kinda weird. She's been trying to tone that down recently, though.
- Secret lovers? IDK, but Keisha may have had some romantic encounters that haven't turned out well. Whoops!
- GOSSIP NETWORK PEOPLE. Keisha probably has a group of people she goes to and shares gossip with, and who share gossip with her. Wanna be part of that? Just post here about it!

At a fairly small 53 and 115 pounds, Kelly does not cut a very imposing figure. Overall, her body has slight curves to it especially around the waist, leading her to have a roughly hourglass-shaped figure. True to her Southeast Asian, specifically Vietnamese origins, she has almond-shaped eyes which are fairly wide-set, angular eyebrows, a rounded chin, as well as a short downturned nose, which she considers to be her least attractive facial feature. On the whole, she is considered fairly cute, if not anything extraordinary. Her skin naturally has a bit of a pale complexion to it, but she tans easily, leaving her with a light ocher tone. Her teeth are straight and white due to an extensive dental hygiene regimen, and the responsible use of braces. Kellys hair is black and usually falls to her mid-back. It is naturally quite straight, and while she is thankful as this makes it easy to take care of, it also means it is quite hard to style. She tends to wear it loose, but accessorized with a bandanna or headband. When practicing archery however, she ties it back into a loose ponytail with a brightly-colored scrunchie.
Kellys usual dress tends to fall in with vintage fashions, especially clothing items that were popular during the 40s and 50s, and so polka dot dresses, as well as checkered shirts are something regularly found in her closet, although she takes great care not to wear anything too revealing. She isnt fond of wearing jeans, so instead she tends to wear knee-length dresses, skirts, or shorts with leggings. Kelly also doesnt use that much makeup, limiting it to some mascara and a nude lipstick so it is not extravagant.
On the day of the abduction, Kelly was wearing a red and white polka-dotted dress that reached to her knee, capri denim leggings, as well as pink ballet flats with ribbons. She was also wearing a floral-patterned blazer, and used a simple black headband to keep her hair out of her face.
Born to Vietnamese immigrants in Chattanooga, Kelly has spent her entire life in the city. Her parents both work, one as a high-flying advertising executive, the other as a human resources manager, which has given them the opportunity to provide Kelly with a fairly stable upper-middle class existence. Since a young age, Kelly has always been interested in scrapbooking, starting when her mother showed her scrapbooks of their lives in Vietnam, which led her to develop a passion for it too. Due to this interest, she's part of the school yearbook staff, where she's in charge of graphic design. Other than the yearbook and scrapbooking, Kelly is also quite active on social media, where she tends to rant on her Tumblr blog about her least favorite teacher of the month, although she also takes the time to look at cute pictures of animals. Volunteering at the local animal shelter near-weekly, Kelly hopes to become a veterinarian, and failing that, a graphic designer.
Vintage fashion is also a love of hers, and so she wears a lot of glasses with cat's eye lenses. Polka-dot dresses and kitten heels are a must have. She and her parents are super duper new money, and so while not incredibly loaded, they've got it quite good. Also, kind of a lapsed Buddhist. Took up archery to appease her parent's demands as a sport, likes it but doesn't practice as often as she should.
What's she looking for?
- People from yearbook! Kelly might be the editor-in-chief or something, but she tries to put all members of the yearbook on equal footing, although maybe not if she's grossed out by them.
- Volunteering peeps/friends! Mainly, she's into working at animal shelters and the like, but she's recently started out into helping out at charity stores like Salvation Army or local soup kitchens.
- Fellow animal lovers!
- Artsy people!

At 52 and 125 pounds, Abaynesh is around the average for girls her age and height, although she is still dwarfed in comparison to her taller classmates. Her figure isnt exactly curvy, with her bust and hips being around the same size. Her skin is a deep brown color with somewhat warm undertones, and her eyes are a dull hazel. At school, shes considered fairly average, and for the time being, Abaynesh would like to keep it that way. She has downward-turned lips underneath a prominent, long downturned nose, and her eyes are deep-set and brown, so dark as to appear almost black. Her face is round, and her brown hair is typically tied into two french braids that go down both sides of her face. While naturally it is quite puffy and curly, she prefers to get it braided into cornrows. When straightened, it falls to about her shoulders. As she is short-sighted, she also wears a pair of black glasses with plain rectangular lenses, preferring not to use contacts.
Abayneshs clothing tends to be fairly modest, and so she gravitates towards blouses, plain tees, knee-length skirts and pants, and tends not to wear shorts unless she pairs them with leggings. She prefers not to wear heeled shoes, preferring sandals and flats. In terms of color, she prefers shades of orange and yellow.
On the day of the abduction, Abaynesh was wearing a striped orange and yellow sundress, gray leggings, leather sandals with ankle straps, as well as a black leather jacket.
The eldest child of six siblings, Abaynesh's parents immigrated to Memphis 5 years before she was born. When she was six, they moved to Chattanooga as they felt it would provide a safer environment for their children, and also give them a chance to open their dream restaurant. Flash forward to the present, and the House of Dula is still a beloved community fixture in Chattanooga's East African community, and the Dulas reside in a fairly cramped apartment above it. Abaynesh is fairly shy and bookish, and most of her interest lies in things like history, cooking, and baking, as she is expected to become the new head of the restaurant when her parents retire, a day Abaynesh is both excited and terribly nervous about. In addition to this, Abaynesh is a fairly big fan of professional wrestling, beginning when she saw an episode of Smackdown while channel surfing. To this day, she remains a fairly devoted watcher of Smackdown and NXT, and her favorite wrestlers right now include Naomi and Asuka.
Currently half-heartedly trying to rebel against her parents by making friends with the sorta-weird kids, but may actually become friends with them. Loves orange and yellow, and is almost always wearing her incredibly kinky hair in two loose braids. Jumper dresses with leggings and flats are what she most commonly wears, although sometimes she'll just wear a wrestling t-shirt, and jeans.
What's she looking for?
- People who frequent her family's restaurant. If they're adventurous or Ethiopian food, they'll like it. Maybe your kid works there?
- Study buddies!
- Wrestling people who Abaynesh watches matches of!
- Cooking and baking buddies!

At 56 and 167 pounds, Adele possesses a fairly hefty figure, although she wears her weight well, with soft curves all throughout her body, with some muscle evident on her back and arms due to her swimming. She has a somewhat wide, heart-shaped face with a large nose, wide lips, and deep-set eyes which are a rich warm chocolate brown in color. While her skin is typically a chestnut color, she tans quite easily to a carob shade. While she often tries to have her hair straightened, she has recently given up on this and leaves it lightly curled and wavy. While naturally her hair is black, she has recently been adding caramel brown highlights to it, with her hair reaching around the length of her armpits. Her teeth are straight and fairly white, and while she isnt the tallest, she always makes sure to have good posture.
Her clothing style tends towards the casual, preferring a wide variety of colors, but she gravitates towards blues and oranges most of the time. While her clothing isnt always the fanciest, she tries to find and buy clothing that fits her frame and accentuates her curves, while drawing away attention from some parts of her body that she considers less attractive, such as her stomach area. She usually prefers to wear heeled sandals or wedges. Most of the time, she likes to keep her makeup fairly simple, usually just wearing some concealer, mascara, blush and lipstick, although for more formal events she also brings out the eyeshadow.
On the day of the abduction, Adele was wearing an ensign blue one-shoulder tee with a strap on the other side to keep it in place as well as a split side hem, light blue denim jeans, as well as wedge sandals. She also had a cross necklace around her neck.
My newest concept! But really, Adele's grown up in a solidly middle-class household all of her life, being the daughter of two African-American police officers. Since then, she has always had a keen interest in criminal justice and law, and with it, an adoration of mystery novels, which she may or may not have an obsession with. Her parents were also quite big on music, especially people like Tina Turner, and so Adele has grown up with a love of music, and is part of the school choir. She's also part of the swim team. Quote social and outgoing, and is an outspoken activist for body positivity. Loves to party, although she usually tries to stay clear of any party drugs, in case her parents were to find out, and kind of disenhearted by an experience with pot although she still tries to act fairly cheerful.
Is part of the Titty Brigade along with Cicada's Joanne and Laurels' Tanisha!

Thanks to her Caucasian heritage, Janies skin is naturally somewhat pale, and she takes great care to ensure it does not burn, including copious amounts of sunscreen. She is somewhat short at 54, but is fairly slender as well, at 110 pounds. While quite lithe, she does have noticeable muscle in her legs thanks to kickboxing, although this is not nearly as evident in other parts of her body, leaving her to have a somewhat delicate appearance. Her face is somewhat narrow and gaunt, with cheeks devoid of fat for the most part. She has a fairly small and narrow nose, and her lips are thin, with a lack of makeup covering them. While Janies hair is naturally a light auburn, it is also naturally somewhat wavy, and it is only through the extensive use of hair-care products that she has managed to somewhat tame it, often leaving it in a bun so it doesnt get in her face. Additionally, as she is nearsighted, she wears black cats eye glasses, seeing contact lenses as a bit of a hassle.
Her clothing sense is fairly modest, with jeans and long-skirts being a long standing favorite of hers, as well as cardigans paired with tank tops, sweaters, or plain shirts. Usually, her clothes tend towards somewhat cooler and more subdued colors, with greens, blues, and dark purples often being found in her daily wardrobe. Janie also prefers to wear sneakers and flats rather than heels, not liking the ache they often leave her within her feet.
On the day of the abduction, Janie was wearing a mint-green polka dotted long-sleeved cardigan with a matching t-shirt, plain blue jeans, as well as white slip-on shoes. She was also wearing her glasses, and had been wearing a black belt to hold her pants up.
Who is she?
Janie is the older sister of @randomness's Jason/Jaclyn, and has often needed to be the more responsible sibling, or at least the one more subservient to the whims of their parents. As is easily seen, she isn't exactly happy with this arrangement, but she's not angry at her sister. Well, not really. More just a mild annoyance, but she does try her best to help out whenever she can, even if it is cloaked in sorta passive-aggressive behavior. Really into kickboxing, and is an avowed moderate member of the Student Council, where she tries to help keep the peace but almost just as often really really really wants to join in on the arguments. She also has no time at all for romance, so guys are probably not gonna have a fun time with her, and she'd prefer to keep it that way. Secretly entertains thoughts of becoming a pianist and living her life on an obscure Caribbean country, she's planning to major in political science at Penn State, and after that, isn't exactly sure what to do.
Also loves mom jeans and cardigans. Don't ask her about it. Just don't. But, do ask her about her piano playing! She loves compliments.

Cleo has a climber's build at 5'10" and 130 lbs. Her skin is light brown and usually has a few blemishes or outbreaks of acne that she refuses to cover up on principle. She has a memorable face with pronounced cheekbones, full lips, a button nose, and one remaining hazel eye. Her other eye is generally covered up with an eyepatch unless she is at a formal event. When covered the eyepatch varies in style and color, while the uncovered glass eye has a deep, dark blue iris. Her hair is black and curly, generally kept just under her ears in length and stowed under a scarf. Her body is toned and lean into ideal form for cycling over years of practice. When she is not cycling her prosthetic leg is a jet black X3 model that she rarely covers up unless the weather demands it. When not cycling Cleo does not wear her prosthetic and instead operates with one leg in the style of Christian Haettich.
On the day of the abduction Cleo was wearing denim cut offs with a loose, black tanktop, a matching eyepatch, and simple black running shoes. Her hair was in a dark blue scarf with a white floral pattern.
