Yayy. So this character and plotline is basically a combination of Memoirs of a Geisha, parts of the anime Darker than Black, and a faint reminiscence of Looking for Alaska. :)

Name: Sasha Pembroke (Raleigh Gold)
Age: 21
Quote that describes your character: “What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.”
Likes: poetry, sleeping, men, cigarettes, being carefree
Dislikes: her parents, egocentric people, kansas, 
Bio: sasha, the sweet, quiet girl in the corner with her doctor martens, nerdy-glasses, and a copy of british literature and who orders her coffee every morning with extra teaspoons of sugar and cream. only, no one actually knows what she does for a living, or why she's here in new york city. in fact, she's the most strange girl you'll ever meet in your life; that is if you'll ever get to meet her. but guess what.... some people are shady, and sasha is one of them. when she throws on a short designer dress, applies her favorite tube of lipstick, she transforms into a seductive femme fatale. she's enchanting, endlessly fascinating. her past is questionable: she snuck into a plane to the united states, dyed her hair, and adopted a new name. now she doesn't know what to do, she found a job at the nightclub Club Red, where she serves men to their delight. but she's alone. even in a room filled with tipsy men, she feels like crying inside. that is, until she meets the neighbor living downstairs, Louis Kyoto, who has just the strange past as she does.
Model: Imogen Morris Clarke
 
HISTORY {Kinda longish. } ever since she was a little girl, she had an endless fascination for playing with her father's laboratory lab animals and reading stories of aliens and sipping tea in the graveyard and looking out at the stars. she read poetry and long novels as a child protegee and believed in everything, the whole entire world was a beautiful sight to her. that was, until her parents died in a car accident and left their little girl with an abusive uncle who prohibited reading big books and stereotyped her into gender roles. she came home and was forced to serve the man, usually drunk and violent by dinner time. so she ran away, with her expanseless knowledge of the paranoia. she spent a few years, faking her age to seem more professional, at a megabillion-dollar laboratory in germany, working on a top-confidential, controversial case on aliens. life seemed to get better for this girl; she was finishing her thesis that would inevitably change the world, she was dating a fellow scientist who shared her love for the paranoia, and she was beginning to forget the past and embrace the promising future. until one day, the german government found out about the research being conducted and arrested everyone who took part in it. they burned all the papers, promising that the public would never know about the startling information, including raleigh's thesis. raleigh's lover was thrown into a desolate prison and starved to death. raleigh, never the same person, developed depression and it shows when she's alone.

~~~~~~STORY~~~ (questions up soon)

I woke up in the middle of the night, my hands convulsing and my mind racing with toxins. I tried to close my eyes shut, reminding myself that morning would come. "Please." I said to myself, as I gazed into the sky. There were no stars in the sky, simply dark black. Not like Germany. In Germany... /oh god, Raleigh, why do you keep on thinking about what happened in Germany?/ A tear trickled down my right cheek. /Fuckk this./ I muttered, as I cuddled myself against the paper-thin blanket. 

"Sasha. Are you okay?" Maria murmured. Turns out she was awake too, even though she had just opened the door to the sleeping quarters. I looked up, not saying a word. Maria, Angelique, Monika, the women who worked at Club Red with me... they all /pretended/ to care. They weren't me... they had their own lives, their own reasons why they were here. It was sort of a trap for people who never got anywhere with their lives. I knew them all so very well, even if they never knew me at all. I was good at keeping secrets. 

"Huh?" I raised my eyebrows, playing the oh-so-innocent role as Sasha. "Yeah, I'm fine. Go to sleep." I forced a smile. Maria slept in a matter of seconds. I looked out the window, feeling the warm city breeze reach past my bare arms. I had to accept that this would be my new life, good or bad.

~~~

Let me ask you, how does it feel to be going nowhere in life? In the mornings I throw on a pair of ratty jeans and an old t-shirt with my dark sunglasses and baseball cap. "Darling, you're too pretty to be covered up like that!" Angelique's raspy voice always reminds me. She was like a mother of sorts, even though she encouraged too much drinking with the clients and plastic surgery jobs. 

"In a few months, I'll be living in an apartment by myself." I reminded myself. "I won't have to worry about Angelique and a wealthy client on my bed, Monica stealing my perfume, or Maria pretending to care." I smiled to myself. I worked hard for this. I stopped thinking about it for a while, and turned back to Angelique. 

"I'm going to check out my new apartment today." I felt proud. Angelique gave me her crooked smiles, filled with cheap silvery-pink lipstick. 

"Oh darling... how fabulous! I'm so proud of you, Sasha! Shall I come?" Angelique pressed her fake boobs onto a chair. 

"Oh no, really, I'm walking and it's a long distance from here."
