Jessamine Baker || Chloë Moretz | Open | 16 | Human, Powerless
Jess used to be an aspiring— and well on her way to fame— actress before the attacks. She’s gotten a lot quieter since she watched her parents die… she’s let less and less people through to see who she truly is. Here at Safening, she’s only got one or two friends, way less than when everybody wanted to get personal with her to try and use her fame. Readjusting to a normal life is a lot easier than she thought it would be. Even though she misses memorizing lines and getting into character sometimes, nobody can dispute that curling up with a good book and a warm mug of hot chocolate beats anxiously sitting by a phone and waiting for a call that would decide where your career goes next. The normal-as-it-gets life she’s offered at Safening is proving to be quite cozy for Jessamine, maybe a little too cozy. You can’t get used to having any one thing for two long, especially if that thing could be ripped from your clutches any second. At Safening, every moment is a moment you have to spend on your toes, waiting…
Ellen Onblyle || Karen Gillan | Taken | 19 | Human, Telepath
Ellen is, in a word, adorable. She’s always been one of those girls with too much to do and not enough time to do it. Before Safening, she was class president, head cheerleader, and a soloist in the town’s local dance company. But on her nineteenth birthday, the day of the attacks and recruits, her entire life got flipped upside down, just like everybody else’s. Her little sister, Kate, was one of the victims that day, so she’s always been touchy on the subject of the attacks at all. Not to mention that her half-brother, Jacob, might have had something to do with it. She may be sensitive, just a little too naïve, and maybe even insane, but she’s not going to rest until the Attackers have been silenced.
