Her usual traits are polar opposite to her usual actions. Over years of bullying in Junior high and extended family she is painfully nervous of others. Her tendency to hide or run away from a fight has saved her more than once. She prefers to be in the spotlight but it is safer in the shadows of others who can handle being burned.
Her nervous of others doesn't include people younger than her. She would protect her juniors and harmless kids; much like a mother hen. She has a tendency to be caring, patient, and content with much.

Shaya Gallant is an older sibling to one brother, Chris. She was the bolder of the two when she was younger. Her bubbly personality was the first to enter a room then her voice. She was known for being the group's dictionary and knowledge powerhouse. Loud brash little tomboy.
Her mother and father worked trade jobs, Construction and Carpenter.They preached to her to go get her education before getting a job. Work is important but a job you love is more important. She instilled that into her classwork.
She completed her High school diploma at the age of 18. She fought hard to complete school on time. School itself was enjoyable for her but the social aspect was bitter for her.
She was bullied for 7 years of her schooling, from the last 2 years of elementary to the first year of high school. Some of the bullying comments were based on her looks, another part was her easy to target personality and her alternative lifestyle friends. Trash dumpster toss, rotten food thrown at her, leg waxing foam in her hair, being punched and thrown around; she took the attacks to her long as it was just her and not her friends. Her friends tried to hide as a group or run from the attacks until class started. She would be their distract to get away.
Due to this type of bullying she is nervous of loud noises, violence and most people getting into her personal bubble where they could grab her. She became a shell of her once excitable self as a child. She became a nervous, skittish, yet content of being in the shadows of others pride.
Going to University changed some of her outlook. She saw smart kind people try to better the world, unlike her previous years. She met others who were like minded like her. She started to try to be less scared of others, which is a daily battle with her to this day.
Now she is an environmental specialist in urban settings. Half of her time is walking through the muck of the local lakes and swamps, the other half is writing up report for businesses and government for building plans. The career is many long hours typing or wrenching through aquatics; but she loves the quiet it gives and the mobility of writing reports anywhere in the New York state as she pleases.
