Would you be interested to see how this character matures/progresses?
Inspired by Hermione Granger, Rose Sharpe is an intelligent young woman who likes to read and study. She has bright red hair that is susceptible to humidity and she often wears it in a loose bun. She is not much of a fashion icon, as she wears dorky and out of style clothes. Makeup is not her forte, so she doesn't wear any of it.
She is socially awkward, and is only friends with the most patient of people. She cannot stand airheads and when asked, she can recite whole paragraphs from her most favourite books. Rose uses a lavender perfume but only wears it on special occasions as it was once her mothers and it is running low. Rose also plays the flute.
Although contrary to wide belief, Rose actually isn't as tough and ground as she seems. She does enjoy a good romance read once in a while and even the girlish instinct for shoes is evident. Only once in her life has she opened up and actually cried in front of another person, this time being when she was adopted into the school.
Rose doesn't believe in 'love' and has only ever truly been friends with one boy in her life. Some people find her irritating because she is far too mature for her age and is sometimes unrelenting on tiny details. She has a critical eye and is sometimes snappy to those who are not of equal intelligence. All in all, she only wants to make friends, but because of her awkward and difficult personality, she finds this hard to do, blaming it on everybody else's errors and never stopping and asking herself what the problem really is.
