NAME: Mary Jane Watson
AGE / DATE OF BIRTH: 15 / June 26, 1996
HOMETOWN: Montoursville, PA ; Forest Hills, Queens, New York City
SEXUALITY: Heterosexual, but kissed and made out with a girl
APPEARANCE: Red hair, green eyes, slender, but not too tall. Mary Jane has a dancer's physique and keeps up the discipline. She can be vain, but its more responsibility for her body. She wears flattering clothes, but nothing that would be considered trashy.
PERSONALITY: Intelligent, tenacious, charming, and sometimes bossy. Mary Jane Watson has learned to rely on herself. She also does what she wants and believes in (a potentially fatal flaw she inherited from her father]. She can be vindictive if she is scorned/burned. Yet, a lot of this is a mask due to her unstable family environment through age 13. But in the last two years, Mary Jane's life has stabilized.
She is a heart-breaker and flirt. Snarky and sweet as honey when she wants. Mary Jane is really just like any other fifteen year old girl - fragile and damaged. But she will keep that mask on - funny, outgoing, and a firecracker. Her passions are driving her - acting, dancing, and flirtations.
SKILLS/ABILITIES: Curious, intelligent, tenacious. She's a good actress, dancer, pianist, and seamstress. Mary Jane is also taking self-defense / martial arts training.
Born to Philip and Madeline Watson, Mary Jane has been both the ugly duckling and the beautiful swan. Her father, who she is a lot alike, had the drive to become a great and renowned writer. He dragged his wife and daughter across the country, college-to-college, for his education and passion. And his frustrations were taken out on his family.
Mary Jane put on a 'mask' - becoming more exuberant in school and also needing to find some outlet - she began ballet lessons. Nothing seemed to be wrong with her. This was the course of her family - nothing looked wrong, everything was perfect towards outwards appearances. But in private, little was right. One time, Philip took out his frustrations on Mary Jane. He hit her because of the costs of her dance lessons. Madeline would not have this - she would take the abuse, not her daughter.
Once Philip was walking across the stage for a college awards ceremony, Mary Jane's mother packed up Mary Jane and two suitcases and left home. Mary Jane's life, as semi-unstable as it was, become even more unstable. She and her mother moved in and out from relative to relative, often suffering scorn and ridicule.
Yet one relative didn't resent them, Philip's sister Anna. There Madeline and Mary Jane stayed. So, Mary Jane had more stability and started the nearby middle school at age 13. She began dance lessons again and also tried out for any drama productions. Mary Jane even began a paper route to help pay for her dance lessons. Dance and her newly found interest acting were her passions. She did not slack off on her other studies - good at geometry and literature.
During her first year living with her paternal aunt, Mary Jane saw Peter Parker. She thought he was cute for a nerd. Yet she went ahead to break other guys' hearts.
