Character Profile: Abigail Scott

Abby has always loved gymnastics, and found that she truly has a talent for it. In every competition she’s ever participated in, she’s always on top. She’s been told many times she’s got the grace of a swan the way she moves. She also loves shopping, and has the uncanny ability to memorize the location of every store in every mall she visits the first time. She has thirty pairs of shoes in her closet, and those are just the ones she was able to bring with her.

She’s always been seen as a pessimist, but she likes to think of it as common sense. Just as outspoken as her brother, she voices her opinion, whether anyone asks for it or not. She’s petite, but don’t mistake her for being dainty.  

It was hard for her and Nick to move away from their home in California, away from their family. But it had to happen, which is one thing that Abby will keep silent about. She knows it’s a touchy subject for her brother, not that she blames him for any of it. Now it’s just the two of them living together at the Force-Pointe High School’s dorm hall, which will definitely take some getting used to. New place. New school. New destiny…that last part is the real problem.

Of all the groups of teenagers in the world, it had to be her and her brother and two new friends. Everyone else in the world would beg for a chance at living the comic book life, fighting evil and all that. But not Abby, she just wants to have a normal junior year. Go to school, do homework, go to the mall and spend her life savings on shoes. You know, the usual. But no, of course there’re secret organizations and hideous, killer bugs. Why wouldn’t there be?

And while everyone else just eats this “it’s your destiny” stuff up, Abby seems to be the only one who doesn’t think it’s a good idea. All she wants to do is stop the clock for a minute and think things over. Kind of hard to do with psycho ladies with last century’s fashion stalking you and rat-sized bugs trying to stab you with their tongues. But, she wants to make sure they’re not making a mistake. This isn’t a comic book or tv show, after all, where people can miraculously recover in the next episode or issue. This is real life. And in real life, evil, mutant bugs can kill you.
