Some more ref for my OC, Courtney. Would love to do a story for her at some point but I don’t know when or how oh nooo. But yeah, general background meanwhile, some of which I've alluded to before:
The Brushmarke family of energy tycoons has accrued impressive wealth and legacy over the years, along with a fair bit of resentment. No matter what lengths modern skunks go to to avoid their well-known pungency, they cannot avoid the prejudice of other animals… except by avoiding the animals themselves. Hence, the Brushmarkes are a lonely lot.
Courtney’s older brothers are jolly, lazy jokers. Her mother is a beauty-fixated depressive, and the less said about her father, the better.
Like all teenagers, Teenage Court knew she was different, even if she couldn’t say why. Inside there was a sweetness and curiosity that she had no model for nurturing. After learning some hard lessons about what being different could cost her, she set aside her yearning for connection and focused on building on an independent life.
So it was that with the lessons of her mother and the power of her name that she broke onto the modeling scene. She learned that the body she’d been ashamed of could be a highly effective tool. One of her greatest coups was her own successful line of perfume, a blow she intended to strike against the prejudice her species faced.
Now in her mid-twenties, the fear and resentment her father gifted her still hides inside, holding her back, chilling her blood. The more success she attains for herself, even as she prepares to leave her family behind, the more she awakens to her own frightening emptiness. If it makes her the first in her family, she intends to fight it and win.
She needs her own mini-comic.
would be nice to see a few other details also if you're able, like underside of feet and stuff
