A petite girl, still growing into her body. An unruly mop of black curls frame her head, cropped short, but still long enough that they're perpetually messy looking. A short, pug nose seperates a pair of wide, intelligent violet eyes. Below this, a pert mouth seems to always have a smile on it. She's still young, fairly thin, although she's already quite lovely, in spite of the layer of dirt that seems to cover her. She's dressed rather simply, in a ragged old jumpsuit, open to the waist, with a babydoll t-shirt beneath it. her feet are protected by a pair of sturdy black boots.


Tally never knew who her real parents were. Her earliest memories are those of being raised in the Eavesdown Docks by an old woman who only went by the name 'Gran'ma.' While life was hard, the old woman did her best to protect the girl, making sure that she was safe, and had food. Gran'ma did her best to instill a sense of right and wrong in the little girl. Then, when Tally was four years old, everything changed when Gran'ma got sick, and never recovered.

Tally was on her own from a young age, and survived pretty much the only way she could, by stealing food and money to survive. The girl always felt guilty, but that was usually trumped by the need to eat. However, she did try to limit who she stole from, preying mostly on the more well to do types than the others from the docks, although she did take a perverse enjoyment of picking the pockets of Badger's thugs.

As she grew older, she began to dream of what it would be like to get off of Persephone, to go up into the Black with the ships she always saw coming and going. She tried several times to stow away on a ship, always with no luck. The most recent attempt saw her almost getting spaced by the captain of a tramp freighter, only being spared when a passenger took pity on her, and paid for the extra fuel to make planetfall to drop her off and break atmo again...
