Paige Crying in the Dressing Room - OC by waywardgal Paige Crying in the Dressing Room - OC by waywardgal
the song for this drawing--->…

One of my most recent original characters, Paige.

"I don't care what anyone thinks about me. I know why I do the things I do."

Paige Simmons
bio: Growing up, Paige's family was wealthy. Her father made enough money alone to support her mother, Paige, and her two siblings. During Paige's first year of college, her father's company went bankrupt and they eventually lost everything. Paige had to leave her prestigious private school in favor of working to help support her family. A year later, her father died of a heart attack probably due to stress. After hearing about jobs in the city, Paige moved, believing she could find a cheap apartment and send her mother whatever money she earned. After many odd jobs, she currently works as a Tommy's girl and a part-time nanny, but picks up other jobs frequently.

age: 21
height: 5' 9"
weight: 137

setting of this image: Paige had been having a hard day at her job. A customer bitched her out for forgetting to bring him extra sauce, her wallet was stolen, and her manager was being even more unreasonable than usual. Then during her break, Paige received a call from her mother telling her that her younger sister, who was a survivor of Leukemia, was beginning to get sick again. Just when Paige thought her life was falling apart yet again, one of her co-workers, Ellie, invited her to go out with them. She had been working there for about a month and her co-workers were being all but evil towards her, so Ellie's gesture brightened her day.

At the end of her shift, Paige retired to the locker room to finish her cup of coffee and change when she overheard Ellie talking with another girl. "She's such a bitch isn't she. She thinks she's better than all of us. I can't believe she only had 25 dollars in her wallet, though." In shock, Paige prepared herself for the impending confrontation. Suddenly all of the day's events brought her to a breaking point. She was tired of being strong. One good cry wouldn't hurt.

That's the most painful OC bio I've read. Most people make sad OC bios by just making everyone die. You did it by making it real. Although it's hard to imagine that much going wrong in one day, when it rains, it pours :raincloud:
