Quinn brianna lynch
Easily, the most identifiable trait in Quinn's personality is her abrasiveness. She is obnoxious at times, her rough and harsh manner tending to drive people away. It is a defense mechanism at its best, and it seems to work quite well against many of the acquaintances in her life. Quinn uses this to mask her fear of social interaction merely by throwing herself in to the fray, putting on a false bravado that only a handful of people have managed to work their way through. She's a heavy drinker, though in the last handful of months that has severely slacked off.
When she is drinking and/or drunk, her violent nature is much more apparent. She is quicker to punch a friend in the face than to listen to anything they have to say, and the liquor makes her tongue as dangerous as a venomous snake. She tends to say things that she either doesn't mean, or severely regret later and her drunk tongue has landed her in more than one sticky situation.
On the other end of her emotional spectrum, she has moments of being relatively normal. She can be sweet, soft, or fluffy but this is a rare occurrence which only can be coaxed out of her by A - Her best friend, Hallie or B - Her sometimes/not relationship with Desidero Desoto.
Quinn's mother, Irene was born into a mixed family. Her maternal side was full of shifters, while her father's side was strictly human. Out of their three children, Irene was the only one whom the Shifter gene seemed to skip, much to her father's happiness. However, this excluded her from a good deal of her family who were rather prejudice about humans in their shifter line. Irene grew up with a substantially strong character, choosing to try to make her family proud in other ways than simply genetics. She went to college, got an art degree, and met a man while there. James was quite the charmer, and Irene fell for him instantly. He was so unlike her family, very kind and not judgmental in the slightest. He was a business major, and as it happened...opposites attracted.
They married when Irene was twenty-three, and they were both fresh out of college with their respective degrees. James took to working in London, while Irene made her living at home with her paintings. It wasn't a perfect life, their house was small and a bit dinky, but there was love between them so things worked out for a time. It wasn't long after they married that Irene found out that she was pregnant, and in the following fall, gave birth to a healthy baby girl. She was a good mix of her parents, with James' eyes and her her mother's hair. She was beautiful, and happiness abounded.
When Quinn was three, her father lost his job at the office in London. Tough times had hit the company and they were closing their doors for good. Despite a stellar recommendation from the company, job opportunities were scarce and the small family was forced to rely on Irene's tiny commission salary to live on. James grew angry, turning to drinking that made him even more of a monster. He began to abuse his wife and young daughter in unthinkable ways, to the point that Irene was afraid to leave him...and began to make up excuses for his actions. She found a job, which belittled James even further but managed to help pay the bills, as an art teacher, but Quinn was far too young to come with her. It was during these times, while Irene worked and James kept Quinn that some of the most horrific things in her life occurred. By the time she was five, her mother realized that Quinn was in fact a shifter. She kept it a secret from her husband, terrified of what he would do once he found out and unable to reach out to her family due to James' abuse.
School, for a time rescued Quinn from her father. She looked forward to spending hours away from home, though she didn't find school any easier. By the time she was fifteen, she was effectively ditching class and her peers. This was around the time that she started to fall in with a bad crowd, starting not only her drinking but also a smoking habit.
A truancy letter tipped her mother off to her class ditching, and Irene tried to get through to Quinn. An angry, teenager, Quinn retaliated by stealing money from her mother's purse unaware of its purpose and went to be with her friends. That night, when her father demanded money for the bills, Quinn's mother went to her purse but found her wallet to be short what she had originally put in there. In a drunken rage, James blindly beat his wife until she was unconscious; having beat her to the point that her brain hemmoraged and she died under their overturned kitchen table. It was nearly morning by the time Quinn came home, her father passed out in the living room.
She came upon the scene in the kitchen, utterly horrified to see her mother. Disbelieving, she held her mother's lifeless body and tried to make her open her eyes. She's never forgiven herself, her last words to her mother being in anger. Thoroughly shaken, and with an uncontrollable rage fueled by her own drinking, Quinn shifted for perhaps the fifth time in her entire life. She tore out her sleeping father's throat without thinking, without any sense of anything except pure, absolute hatred.
When she came to again, and terrified of what she had done, Quinn fled Elstree. She hitchhiked her way to London with little more than the clothes on her back which were stained with her father's blood. She took to the streets, living homeless until she ran in with a gang who agreed to take her in. Mostly they were vicious boys and men, though there were a few girls, and one can guess mainly why there were any girls at all. She spent a lot of time in their safe houses, partly hiding from the police investigating her parent's death (and ultimately her disappearance as well), partly hiding because of the things that the gang was telling her to do.
Around this time, UNIT started to do some hard investigating in to the various gangs of London. When police caught gang members, they were turned over to UNIT to conduct their tests for the shifter gene. Quinn, knowing that she would be found out, went in to hiding. However, that wouldn't matter because as a plea deal with the police, one of the members who had apparently landed in hot water gave away the locations of the safe houses. The UNIT and London Police made a clean sweep through the safe houses, catching up Quinn and three other shifters in their trap.
Selected by the Keepers for the Anthro project, Quinn suffered the worst of her life in the cells of the labs. Her shift, a maned wolf, was mutilated until ears sprouted from her red hair and a tail appeared. Several other small changes happened, but those were the most painful transitions. About fourteen months after reaching the testing labs, she was released into the dome with her anger and fear running higher than ever. The Fallen ring found her naked in the rain, shivering in the dead of winter. Pity struck them and they took her in, clothing her up and attempting to make her part of the ring; however her severe distrust of everyone made it difficult for her to accept them as more than just a place to sleep and eat.
She spent a lot of her days in the underground Speakeasy, a place for people with a taste for liquor. It was there at age eighteen that she met Desidero Desoto. He was an odd one, claiming to have married in her in drunken stupor one night. He also plucked up the courage (or stupidity) to kiss her, which was one of the most off limits things that one could do. As fate would have it, she ended up jumping in a fight to protect him from a Fulsi in the bar who was looking for a fight when he would not defend himself. She dragged him home, nursed him up, and then had the time of her life trying to get him to leave.
When Desi would not leave her alone, he sped up her decision to leave the Fallen, ditching them to go rogue. Rogue life was harder than she anticipated, with no Ring support to help her, but she made it on her own for nearly a year with various interactions with Desi every so often. She didn't realize that he was looking for her, until much later, and then she attempted to push him away. She refused to open her heart up to someone else. However, Desi...well he was very persistent and one night when they met...she agreed. He was elated, taking her back to the Fallen with him.
