(I may eventually tweak the character description as I'm not completely happy with it).
Mina Harcross, 21
Irvington (also hangs around Downtown)
Dream: to front a massive revolution in the world of art, making way for more female artists to become more expressive and less “frou-frou”
Bio: Born and bred in New York under careful supervision of her overbearing well-to-do parents, Mina applied and was accepted to the Herron School of Art, conveniently not telling her family until approximately two hours before her train left from Grand Central. Seeking the bohemian life that was popular decades ago in Europe (having tried to hang around Greenwich Village, only to be found and dragged home), she now lives with two other girls, and considers herself to be a bit of a radical and a feminist. Sarcastic to the very end and perhaps a little eccentric, Mina has a tendency to wear men’s trousers, but will readily throw on a dress at the very suggestion of dancing. Experiments with different art styles and can almost always be found either in her apartment in front of a canvas or downtown around the art school.
