“Character profile:

The character is often visibly detectable as a female with brown skin and dreadlocks. She was born in the U.S. and speaks English as her native tongue, but she studied French and in brief exchanges can seem to be from some French speaking place. Where she might be from is very dependent upon the language she speaks. She’s been asked at various times and in various places whether she’s from Martinique, Puerto Rico, Guyana, Jamaica, some island near Venezuela, Paris, London and New York. She’s been told by a senegalese that she resembles a girl he knew in Senegal and by a Mexican that she looks just like his cousin.

She is from the metropolis, in her case New York.”
