About Desiree

Desiree was born in 10 along with her older sister Sherry. Their mother died giving birth to Desiree, and their father went insane as he saw it with his own eyes. He shot himself soon after. At the time, Sherry was seven and had to take care of Desiree from day one. When Desiree was five, she began to notice how overprotective Sherry was. She didn't understand why she had no parents or why Marilyn didn't tell her about her past. And she wasn't old enough to realize Marilyn was only trying to protect her.

When Desiree was 8, she and Sherry finally saved up enough money to buy a baby calf and raise it for food. Desiree, of course, wasn't told the cow would one day be slaughtered. She became wildly attached to the calf, who she had named Patches. An entire year later, Desiree noticed Sherry sneaking towards Patches with a knife. Sensing what she was doing, Desiree hid behind a barrel and watched.

She then saw her best friend be stabbed by her sister. She began to resent her sister. Immediately she ran out to dying Patches, sobbing her heart out. When Patches finally passed, all of Desiree's sadness turned to anger. She began to resent her sister. Even years later, as Desiree is 17, and the Patches incident has faded, Desiree still doesn't love her sister, and knows the feeling is mutual.


Desiree is shy and humble, but learned the hard way not to become attached to everything. If Reaped, she will make no allies. She will stand alone.
