It's a long list, but she's one of my oldest characters.
Since she was 4, in 2011, her family started up a Let's Play channel where she's a frequent co-commentator, as a sort of way to document her growing up. By Summer 2020, the channel has moderate success and a subscriber count somewhere between 20,000 and 70,000. The pressure of the internet watching her grow up never got her down, it just gave her motivation to grow up to become a thoroughly phenomenal woman. She's still got growing to do, but she plays electric guitar, hits the gym, keeps the nearest Pokemon Go Gym with Team Instinct, collected every Mario game there is, and caught them all. She's proud of who she is, who she was, and who she's going to be. With a cocky smirk, she welcomes any challenge the future holds for her! Demons to slay, games to play, bring it on!
Although, while she's quick to go on a rant for things that tick her off (amiibo scalpers, untagged spoilers, her ex-boyfriend, cynics with impossibly high standards), she tends to be closed off when it comes to things that upset her in other ways. Her recurring nightmares, her ex-boyfriend's behavior when they were dating, her fears of loneliness. She thinks these are things her fans are better off not knowing, and in extreme cases, her friends and family too. She keeps those thoughts and feelings buried down until the next pleasant experience washes them away.
In Storm Warning, she's a major character, one of the main NPCs, and arguably the deuteragonist.
