Rachel lives in the suburbs near Los Angeles, CA with her mom and mom's boyfriend, and her own, long-time boyfriend, Derrick. She's close with Aaron, Mei, Steffen, Celeste, Bailey, Sam, Carlos, Merriweather, and Lindsay. Her mother and father are divorced and she used to spend some time at her father's until she worked up the courage to tell her mother that he sometimes verbally abused her, and hit her once. She has a habit of putting herself down and making cruel jokes about herself and her body, how "trashy" she is, etc. (even her fursona's name and design shows her self-loathing: "ugly" dog breed, pest animal, and the name being self-depreciating, of course) and often does dumb things--most notably engage in sexual behavior with her ex-girlfriend and close friend Celeste--to validate to herself that she is indeed a bad girlfriend and a horrible person. She is a recovering anorexic. She's not a completely unhappy character, though: most days, maybe seven out of ten, she's cheerful and looking for fun. Rachel is not very bookish, but is quite creative and artistic.

Femme rock/riot grrrl, alt pop, pop rock, queercore, hardcore, horrorpunk.
Fashion: Somewhat punky, somewhat scene, sometimes questionable tastes. A lot of neons and fun prints, tanks, strappy stuff, skinnies, tights, legwarmers, short skirts, graphic and band tees, off-the-shoulder stuff, jean shorts, chuck taylors, sandals and flip-flops, cute little summer dresses, spiky things, torn-up distressed stuff. Wears bright or bold eyeliner and shadow, usually with lip gloss. She & Derrick are big on DIY and have fun craft adventures where she plays around with her wardrobe, too.
Personality: Open, fun, active, artsy, flirty, mostly cheery or able to suck it up if she’s not, very curious, a little hyper. She’s always with Derrick & friends (Mei, Aaron, Steffen, Bailey, Carlos, Merriweather, Lindsay, Celeste). Winnie, her Chinese crested powderpuff, is her favorite thing in the entire world and she’s practically a purse-dog lady. He’s her little baby. Loves being outside on the docks near where she lives, and loves to party and generally be around other people. She’s a furry and suits (partials only) and likes the art part, not the fetish part. Does cons! Rachel lives with her mother and her mother’s fiancé—one of them is a body piercer and one is a tattoo artist. She has aspirations to be a tattoo artist herself. Rachel has some emotional scars from abusive, exploiting ex-boyfriends and a craptastic father who may or may not be her own biological father, and has a really self-depreciating view of her body. She’s friends with others with weight and image issues and has come to be able to help them get to where she is, since she’s made improvements. She is also—result of the bad boyfriends in part—sometimes a little trashy, but she’s got principles and it’s more of an aura than any real behavior. Her friend/ex-girlfriend Celeste is kind of an older-sister-mother-thing to her and they hang out frequently. Rachel very occasionally halfass fools with her, but Derrick is her constant, best friend, and absolute favorite person. She could be better to him and knows it, but is otherwise fiercely in love with and devoted to him (and constantly guilty). She’s just stupid sometimes.
