Andy Heller by Atomicfish42 Andy Heller by Atomicfish42
My character for the enterVoid 2012 Invitational: [link]

Info:
Andrea "Andy" Heller is a very anxious girl with agoraphobia. She hate new things, people, places, surprises, men with pointy teeth, outdoors...etc. She makes a living knitting and sewing up cute scarves, hats, sweaters, and plushies, selling them on Etsy and eBay.

Her agoraphobia came from a life of dealing with sever social anxiety and she started getting panic attacks just from walking outside. Andy adopted a dog in an attempt to get herself out of her apartment, while also providing companionship. However, it did not, now Otis (named after Andy's favorite singer, Otis Redding) is a slobbery, obese, lump that likes to lay his over-sized head on Andy's lap.

For months now, Andy has been talking to a psychiatrist online and taking anti-anxiety medication. She's been making small strides, like walking around the corner of her building and back and walking Otis at night. She's still very anxious but hopes to take control of her life, maybe even make some friends.

Other things:
Age: 23
Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio, USA
What's in the bag: knitting and sewing stuff.
Weapon of choice: Whatever is in the bag. The dog helps too.
Personality Summery: Andy is a kind and caring person, who just wants to be friends, but she’s nearly afraid of everything outside her door and freaks out when she has to confront people or new situations.

Dog summery: A BIG overly friendly dog, who is very protective of his master. He also enjoys his little outfits, they're made with love. :B

Haha, I love Otis' derp face sketched on the bottom there where Andy is hugging him. It's neat to see the progression on how you began this fighter and where she is now. That and I'm always happy to see someone who isn't just 'another white fighter'.
