Tess started seeing Emilie, then after Lance came out to her, she agreed to see him as himself AND Emilie (same person, different forms). She mostly hangs with Dorian and Ernest and Ernest's friends, but doesn't mind Emma, a few of Lance's other friends. She's rather unsure if she likes Dan or not.
Also she's my excuse to have a sugar glider character, and to have a character with a ridiculous chest. XP
If some of the linework seems old or out of place, it's because it is. This reference sheet was half-finished for about half a year.

She is always open/interested in new music; this is just some of what she listens to.
Fashion: Tees and slacks, shorts, skinnies, leggings, and/or skirts, jackets, vests, asian patterns, cool colors, band shirts, all sorts of shoes. Usually mature but still colorful, usually rather modest, sometimes tattered or frayed. She fixes things to be other things often after they’ve lost their original use.
Personality: Highly energetic and social. Tess is in part Lance’s foil and a parallel of Emilie, but she is capable of being as calm and deep as he can be, too, and finds his interest in the otherworld refreshing and interesting. She loves to learn and be active. Straightforward, confident, not given to panic or nervousness. She loves more mathematical and science-related things, and is rather fond of sci-fi and superhero stuff. Somewhat suspicious of men, mainly because she hates being ogled and approached. Doesn’t mind abstaining from sex, as Lance is nonsexual.
Drugs: Drinks, but very rarely.
Likes: Science, Demetri Martin, superheroes, clubbing, the beach, sailing, music, stuffed animals, kawaii things, sewing, sandwiches, traveling, exercise, sci-fi, math, accessorizing, window shopping, movie nights, board games, roller coasters, swing sets, hiking, reading, tech-geekery, manga, candy and fruits, farmer’s markets, Star Trek, Futurama, Firefly, Dr. Who, etc. TV-wise, body mods, rugby, badminton, videogames, fried grubs, MLP Friendship is Magic, Choward’s violet candies.
Dislikes: Having a hugeass chest, when her gliding skin gets in the way (esp. in high winds!), sleeping in late, procrastinating, secrecy, beef, crunk, sleeping in, most drugs, Twilight, the pirates & ninjas debate (in her heart she goes for pirates…), “random humor”, winter after Christmas, star anise, bees.
