NAME: Arizona Grace Powell
AGE/DATE OF BIRTH: 22 / January 28, 1987
PREMADE: The Medium
PB: Bethany Joy Galeotti
WHY WERE THEY IN SYDNEY/GOING TO LA:
PERSONALITY: The most important thing you need to know about Arizona is that she's a survivor. There is very little she wouldn't do to stay alive and very few people she wouldn't be willing to leave behind. In fact, one of the first lines she crossed (that as a youth she thought she never would) was using her ability for extortion. Since then it's become something she can and will do with little guilt, but there are rules to who she will and will not use. Actually, that same particular group of people is the exception to all her life rules, and they're the people she sees as innocent, pure, whole, and/or good. People who are warm and giving, kind just to be kind. Plus the few people who have wormed their way into her heart as friends.
Unsurprisingly, Arizona doesn't rely on anyone else. She's independent and prone to fleeing when she feels too held down. Also, stubborn. Especially when it comes to doing something for herself. Being in debt to someone else is not something she's comfortable with. She purposely tries to live her life without strings, without making too many attachments (but, for all the lying she does, once she gives her word on something, she will follow through). Because once you're attached to someone, they can hurt you and she's been hurt enough. Needless to say, she doesn't easily trust either. After all, surviving is about more then just staying alive, and Arizona tries to keep the softer parts of her still alive protected too.
On the island, Arizona will be a bit of a hoarder. She'll be the one (or one of the ones) going through bags and making a stash of what she thinks will be useful. And while she won't just give up what she collects, she's not so heartless as to keep something she doesn't need if someone else does (that is, to say, if she has medication someone needs to survive, she'll give it up).
- born to an older couple.
-- a religious mother, who taught math
-- a distant father, who specialized in cardiology
- communicated with her first spirit at three
-- had nightmares and cried to her mommy about the scary, skeletal man who kept visiting her
- at 5 her grandfather passed away
-- she knew this before anyone in her family was given the news, however, because his spirit decided to check in on her and say goodbye
--- she told her mom about it during breakfast, of course. the phone call came a few hours later, at which point her mom kept giving her wary, uncertain eyes.
- arizona didn't know it at the time, but that following week her mom spent a lot of time at their church, speaking with the pastor/priest about what happened and her fear for her daughters soul
-- after that week her mom seemed to always be afraid of her
--- she also enforced more praying and became more strict all around
- when school started, arizona thought it was great
-- right up until her teacher set up a meeting with her parents about her imaginary friend (a spirit, of course, that arizona had no idea wasn't a fellow student)
--- her mother, of course, knew it wasn't just an imaginary friend. her mother purchased blessed oil and that following week arizona was pulled out of school while she prayed over her, trying to save her soul from the devil.
- idk, idk, strictness. punishment boarding on abuse.
- ran away at 15
-- extorted one of her father's coworkers into giving her 2000$ after learning he was being haunted by the spirit of a young girl he'd accidentally killed at a bbq
- ended up in IL, for, idk, 5 months
-- lived on the streets for about a month before meeting a sweet, elderly woman who's grandson had just been shot
--- arizona passed along his message (idk, he was sorry he'd gotten caught up with marco. he should have listened to her and his dad) after he made it clear he wouldn't leave her be until she had
---- in hopes of getting to communicate with her grandson more through this stranger, she offered up the quest room in her house (along with passing messages back and forth, arizona took care of her yard and helped out around the house)
- the grandson moved on and so did arizona, to NY
-- lived on the streets for a few months
-- ended up working at a little restaurant, off the books, after meeting the owner and relaying a message his very persistent, deceased wife had for him
-- after a few weeks started sleeping on one of the other waitresses couches
--- paid 50$ a week (on her insistence) [i think that's okay? 200$ a month, for a couch, seems fair to me?]
- at 17 hitchhiked to seattle
-- was living on the streets but still managed to get a part-time job
--- met a cute 19 year old, they ended up dating and she spent most nights at his place (tbh, she liked having a real shower and bed more then she liked him)
-- still passed along messages from peoples loved ones
--- people who ran in the new age-circles actually started looking for her
- ended up in australia at 19
-- a rather well off woman desperately wanted to get in touch with her recently deceased son, who'd died while visiting sydney, so she found arizona (her desperation had led her to a local shop, which had then led her to a woman arizona had helped, then to arizona herself)
--- she told arizona her story, after a few weeks of attempting to get in touch with him at the woman's home, she asked if heading to sydney would help. arizona wasn't sure, but she didn't particularly like the woman (she was one of those rich types who thought everyone else was below her, especially her staff) and wanted to go to australia, so she lied, said if they were going to reach him anywhere, it'd be there
---- and so they traveled, with the woman paying for airfare and their hotel (with the understanding if arizona couldn't get in touch with the spirit, she would get nothing else, but if she could, there was a suitable payment in her future)
----- arizona did get in contact with him, very briefly, long enough to lie about him being there and relay a fake message to his mother about forgiving her for being cold (what, she wanted the cash dammit).
