MICA C. REYNOLDS
Charismatic, although not inherently, Mica enjoys the company of others and sometimes struggles to maintain it. Solitude unnerves her; the result is that she constantly seeks forms of entertainment in others, to the point where it can be detrimental to her health. She will forgo sleep in favor for companionship and, in regards to friends, is extremely self-sacrificing. This is a trait that she struggles to improve, particularly in the Menagerie, constantly alternating between a selfless and a selfish approach. She can be unpredictable in these regards, ranging from extremely compassionate to extremely apathetic.
Mica presents herself to others well, with self confidence and a sense of humor. Mica often laughs and smiles, preferring to be viewed as happy rather than upset or depressed. This does not mean that she neglects negative emotions entirely; on contrary, she often undergoes periods of extreme madness, where she is enraged for no particular reason and violently takes it out on whomever is near. This is not a physical violence. Her anger manifests itself in the form of a condescending rudeness, sometimes suggesting that Mica views herself more highly than she views others. Her confidence sometimes fringes on outright egotism, a statement that she would not disagree with.
At times, Mica is awkward, forgetting customs that are typical for social situations and overstepping boundaries without realizing the consequences of her actions. She often speaks without thinking, unintentionally disrespecting or offending others. There are also times when this is done intentionally. She enjoys arguing for the sake of arguing, and frankly it amuses her to get under the skin of those she deems less intelligent or emotionally immature.
Mica is reasonable, for the most part, preferring to find the logical solution to a situation rather than an illogical one. This does not make her apathetic or unemotional. She does not think like a robot. Mica merely contains her emotions, for the most part, demonstrating self-discipline that is remarkable if nothing else. She is good with responsibility when it matters, putting others before herself. Mica refuses to make excuses for herself. She accepts it when she makes a mistake, although she rarely apologizes even if she regrets what she has done.
Her weaknesses include her stubbornness, her inability to know when enough is enough, and her refusal to address her own faults. Mica does not plan well for the future, instead living on a day-to-day basis. When it is not required of her, she shirks responsibility and does enough to take care of herself. Mica is diligent in regards to thing she cares about but extremely neglectful when dealing with things she does not favor. Mica can also be an extremely harsh critic of herself, recollecting mistakes made in the past. She tries to learn from them, yes, but there are times when she destructively repeats the same mistake again and again.
Born in New Orleans, Mica Reynolds grew up in a middle-class family. Her parent's divorced when she was five and her father moved to Vail Colorado. She visited him during the summers and went to a public school during the school year until her sophomore year in high school. Her mother was unemployed, living off of a monthly inheritance. Mica harbored a close relationship to her older sister and her niece. Growing up, she often visited family in Texas, Nevada, and California. This was the foundation for her restlessness; it is where her love of travel originates.
At fifteen, Mica began to live primarily with her father in Colorado. This was due to increasing hostility between herself and her mother; they were both extremely combative. She completed her education at a private high-school in Vail, where she participated in the sports of cross country running and boxing. She was particularly talented at boxing; she was eligible for several scholarships and offers to go semi-pro, although Mica declined. During the summers Mica worked at her aunt's ranch in Bandera, Texas and dated a boy named Richy Mays, four years her senior and a source of animosity between herself and her father.
At eight-teen she completed high-school at the top five of her class and applied for acceptance into the London Military Academy which specialized in the training of UNIT soldiers. Mica intended on becoming an officer for UNIT, although this plan was crudely delayed when she attended the required physical exam. After a blood test it was revealed that Mica was one of the very creatures that she one day intended to capture, much to her dismay. She was studied briefly before being released into the Menagerie.
