Less Ancient History

With her baby face, long neck, and natural blonde hair, Michigan-born Ophelia was expected to ship off to Hollywood, California by the time she could walk. But then it took her a little longer than normal to learn to walk. As she grew — and grow she did; a gangly teen, shooting up above all her male peers early on — most things tended to take Ophelia longer than normal. Studies by paranoid parents suggested that their bouncing baby girl didn't possess any learning disabilities; she simply liked taking things at her own pace. It was a fact the easy-going Ophelia embraced about herself, taking to the long periods of studying she knew she needed to stay in step with her classmates. In fact, she enjoyed studying. She gobbled up learning. But she just never would become very quick on the draw.

Her practice at memorization earned her another hobby, however: theatre. Finally, the model thin-and-tall blonde would claim her Hollywood throne! — except, then she took a liking to stage shows instead. By high-school, she was inescapably enamored with Greek Mythology… and a senior named Trevor, who managed to turn her head around until she was leaving to be in Canada with him as he pursued a hockey scholarship, leaving her own ambitions in the dust. Several years, she played devoted fan to Trevor, until he cheated on her, and she threw a lamp at his head and he missed the championship game while getting stitches.

Pulling her life together, Ophelia took the dramatic turn of events as a sign — wasn't this like her very own Greek tragedy? (so maybe she wasn't exactly thinking on scale…) Pooling the rest of her remaining college years together, she devoted back to her philosophy and religious studies, as well as theatre, surprising everyone that knew her with both a double major and then an acceptance into a collaborative post-graduation program.

Trevor Fairbanks in the role of "The Ex". The siren that brought her to Toronto and then ruthlessly betrayed her. Ophelia assigns a lot of overdramatic emotion to the event in order to fuel her acting, though she, truthfully, doesn't think about him all that much anymore. Sometimes, his name is used as a curse when Toronto does something stupid. Trevor now plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs and has a permanent scar over his right eyebrow.

Lisa Coolridge in the role of "The Best Friend". Lisa, a fellow Theatre post-grad, consistently attempts to get Ophelia to drop those silly old-people studies and focus on her acting. She wants to eventually run away to California with her. The two should probably be rivals, except that Ophelia keeps forgetting to get competitive about things. Lisa also has aspirations to direct, and the two have previously had a sexual relationship.
