Bloated Corpse Rots Beneath a Shrub
Bloated Corpse Rots Beneath a Shrub (a.k.a. Shrub)
Extensive freeze-branding across both arms and thighs, with minor detailings elsewhere. Extremely distinctive. See character portrait.
Apparel & Accessories
Generally wears only a loincloth, both to show off her tattoos and because it is typical of where she grew up. She doesn’t usually go naked, because she is often in areas this makes people uncomfortable.
Small Company schoolhouse for children of transient workers. Elementary through high school.
Has worked primarily as hired muscle, first as a marine (soldier in charge of protecting a ship at sea), then as an armed guard, all under CLALEN corps. Show spoiler
Shrub will never take a job as a marine again. Show spoiler
Hopes to save up enough money to allow her parents to retire (they are getting older).
Aspires to breed the ideal flower, despite not knowing what that constitutes.
Likes & Dislikes
Loves flowers. Breeds them obsessively as a hobby, and has a near-encyclopedic knowlege of the various flowering plants of the craton.
Vices & Personality flaws
Fears close relationships and getting too attached to things that aren’t easily replaced.
Her parents are navvies (infrastructure laborers), so they and her minor siblings also move around a great deal, though generally within the Tehuantepec area. She has an affectionate, though distant (self-imposed), relationship with them.
Strongly affiliated with Tezcatlipoca. Believes wholeheartedly that he truly wants the best for all, and his philosophies are the best way to achieve this. Deeply respects his clerics and institutions, however, according to Tezcatlipoca’s teachings, is ready to abandon them in an instant should it seem they are becoming more detrimental than helpful or straying from his will. Shrub worships daily and does her best to live according to his principles. Shrub believes other gods of the Teozalo pantheon exist, suspects the gods of other faiths exist also but has not seen solid proof yet.
Very pleasant and polite, but generally quiet. Comes off rather cold and skittish.
Wealth & Financial state
Shrub makes enough to live comfortably, but not much more. Mostly lives off the Company’s resources and whatever she can carry.
