EDIT: Added her holograph and a back reference. Not sure how I feel about her holo, though... XP Also minor bits of editing here and there and she has a few more friends. :3Whoops, almost forgot! Pose for back was referenced from this downloads.xdesktopwallpapers.c…

Elementary school teacher, ex-hussler/gamblerAlliance:
Can 'stickify' her legs like all MTTs when in dragon form. Flesh and blood are yellow, but the inside of her mouth is the same green as her inner ears. Irises are darker blue than markings. Being an MTT, she can switch her tail holograph on/off at will in either form; it makes light-saber-y sound when moving through the air. She has a gold hoop earring in the outer lower rim of each ear, though she occasionally will change them out for smaller earrings that won't get tangled in her hair. On her left cheek she has a dimple.
Friendly, talkative, and highly confident. She can get annoying since she can be a bit overbearing. She will not hesitate to put others in their place when speaking rudely to her. Most of that is due to working with small children and she can't really switch it off. When she is not working and Rosa isn't home she will sometimes fall back into the habit of gambling, but nowhere near as badly as she was before. At these places she comes off as either cocky or a quiet loner, depending on her mood and consumption of alcohol. She never lets herself get more than buzzed when going out, although it does make her giggle a lot.History:
Orquidea grew up near Mexico City in the bad parts of town. Her mother died a few short years after she was born, so she didn't get to know her well. She had a father, two older and one younger sibling to look after her, however money was tight and taking care of four children was expensive. By 16 Ori was already hitting the streets to find money, as her father was a deadbeat and her brothers and sister needed food in their mouths.
She didn't sell her body (something she prides herself in), instead finding solace in a casino not too far from home. She started as a simple pickpocket, dolling herself up and being a "lady luck" to the men playing, but soon learned the games. She became a skilled hustler and gambler by 21. The regulars at the casino knew her as the infamous Florista (Flower Girl), having lost much to her sly ways. They never kicked her out, though, because she was charismatic with them, and they also saw it as a challenge: who could outwit the deceivingly sweet woman decorated in flowers?
She did, however, have to learn how to defend herself against those who caught her and were willing to hit a woman. Between self-teachings and close friends in similar 'lines of work', she grew a bit of muscle and learned some basic self-defense techniques.
Her life seemed set on the typical bad tracks of her neighborhood, but it all changed when her father hooked up with a yol. She was very kind and sweet, and Ori and her siblings loved her like their own mother. Life was great. Home was once more a happy place to be. Until they found out the yol was pregnant by an unknown father. Ori's father grew more distant than before, often leaving the house for who knows where. When he was there he was very angry and usually drunk. About a month or so after the news the baby yol was born. Unfortunately it's mother died in childbirth, and Ori's father wanted nothing to do with the baby. It was a wake-up call to Orquidea.
In order to set her life straight (and save the abandoned child), Ori left with the young yol to Junction City. By then her siblings were old enough to take care of themselves, so she felt it was safe to leave them. She named the yol Rosa and raised her as a sister. Today her hustling days are over. She got a job as a teaching assistant, which quickly grew to a full-time job due to her outstanding performance with the kids and her bilingual abilities. Rosa is now 6 and attending school.Likes/Dislikes:
Loves children. She grew fond of poker and numerous other card games. She doesn't like the smell of cologne, people who think kids are nuisances, womanizers, loud drunks, and being man-handled physically or verbally. Strangely though, she loves the smell of most cigars, and occasionally has divulged herself with one.Trivia

-She doesn't like telling anyone what she used to do, and if she does it's because she trusts that person not to treat her differently because of it
