      Appearance:

      Iris is five feet, three inches tall, with a slender frame and fair skin. She has to wear copious amounts of sunblock and, in the hotter months, often wears sunglasses any time that she is outside, along with a sunhat or a parasol. Her eyes are a light green color, and her hair a yellow-y blonde and long. Her lips, which always have some level of pout to them, are always colored pink with either gloss or lipstick, and she never goes without eyeliner.

      She has not particular set style, and will wear just about anything once [except, perhaps, sweatpants]--as long as it fits. She has a dislike for clothes that are either too small, or too large, the exception to the latter being when used as pajamas. Her favorite accessories, outside of her sunglasses and sunhats, are necklaces. She has a penchant for golden jewelry for chains, backings and settings.

      Personality:

      Iris is the type of girl that can easily overload herself. She likes to start projects, but not necessarily finish them, and her dreams are quite high--to be a well-known fashion designer. She sets a lot of goals and expectations, but often fails to meet them, which causes her a lot of stress, and is often distracted from what she's doing by the next "new" or "cool" thing that comes around.

      Despite this, she makes an effort to show up on time to anywhere she promises she'll be. She's a flake in her own life, she doesn't wish to be a flake in others and takes her friendships seriously, and wants to be well-liked by her peers, and to continue to have the comfort of a circle of friends. She is often reliant on her friends to help keep her in check, or on track, but just as often relies on them to pull her away from whatever she's been doing for hours on end.

      She's the sort of girl who is content both on her own and in large crowds--neither being a problem for her. She learned to appreciate both, being a family with two siblings, but also from having a great many cousins. She often feels that balancing the two is key to a happy lifestyle, just as she tries to balance retaining her own individuality and complying to the wishes of others.

      While she tries to be studious, Iris has difficulty concentrating on her studies for more than an hour or two without someone to keep her nose to the grindstone, and has been known to abandon assignments halfway through. There is too much going on around her, and she wants to experience as much of life as she can, especially while before she's an adult, where possible, when responsibility falls less harshly upon her own shoulders.

      Connections:

      Alexander Winfield - riend, Collaborator
      Cassandra Sullivan - Friend
      Geraldine Richter - Collaborator
      Siwan Llewellyn - Good Friend

      Significant Dates:

      May 2007 - Given her first violin
      January 2014 - Started at Tallygarunga

    Iris was the middle child of a family that seldom sat still. Everyone had their own thing, everyone was always busy. It seemed as if someone was always on their way in or out the door. Her days were busy, filled with playing on her own or chasing after one of her two sisters. Unlike the other two, she relished quiet time when it came, taking the time to use play-doh, read, or her favorite, color. Despite some of the apparent differences between each of the siblings, there was something besides blood and blonde hair that tied them all together--music.

    Her family was very musically inclined, including her parents. All the girls had been pushed to learn to master at least one instrument, had been pushed to try and sing. It was to instill some sense of culture, she supposed. Iris had chosen the violin for it's beautiful, warm tones. By the time she was seven, she had firm memories of weekly jam sessions on Friday nights with her family at home, the smiles on everyone's faces.

    Beginning her primary education wasn't easy. She struggled to be away from her immediate family for very long, and was entirely uncooperative when they had tried the previous year After school, if her parents weren't home, the girls sat with a babysitter. As time passed, the eldest would become the babysitter herself.

    Iris didn't struggle to make friends, and while she found the length of the school day difficult to adjust to as she moved up to Tally proper, it wasn't a bad experience. She lost some friends, gained others. She found she was an average student. Despite her intelligence, she simply didn't have the drive or ability to keep her nose firmly down in her studies. Her mind frequently wandered--what were her friends up to, what adventures awaited her outside, what did the rest of the world look like? She had endless desires to see and explore and do, to try new things.

    Blossoming into her teen years, she began to pick up a love for fashion. She began doodling in notebooks, making magazine clippings, doing whatever she could to put together something new. She loved the creativity and innovation involved, and began to dream of a day when she might one day be a designer herself. It was also around this time that she began,at the urging of one of her friends, started singing covers. Unbeknownst to her, they weren't just kept as a home video type deal--they were being uploaded to the internet.

    It was during her sixth year that her aspirations began shifting once more.  Slowly, the love of designing fashion passed away, although fashion itself was still something enjoyed.  In its place, her talents with music slowly drew into focus after meeting Alexander Winfield, another musician who appeared on YouTube.  He helped her slowly start overcoming her fears and learning to sing for someone other than the air--to sing for friends.  This was furthered after she found a notebook full of lyrics left on the ground, and the less than optimistic owner who'd lost them.  She has begun working the lyrics [with permission] into breathing songs with the help of friends and family, and has begun idling the thought of forming a band as her sixth year hit.
