Tina Talarian

"You make mistakes, but I don't have any regrets.
I'm the kind of person who takes responsibility for it and deals with it.
I learn from everything I do. I work very hard, I have so many things going on in my life.
Get to know me and see who I am.”

Stereotypes

Vampire "Oh my god, I love those Twilight books. Edward is so hot. And RPat is awesome. I met him at a party once."
Werewolf "You mean, like that Teen Wolf series on MTV? It's pretty cool, I guess, but Vampire Diaries is better."
Mage "Magic shows are kind of passe. I mean, David Copperfield was hot back in the day, but he's old enough to be my grandfather now."
Wraith "I believe in ghosts...but I hope I never have to meet one! "
Changeling "I love fairy tales. The Disney movies are some of my favorites!"
Hunter "Oh, like Ghost Hunters and those? They're not bad, I guess. But I think reality TV should be more entertaining."
Demon "Well, of course the devil exists. But if we have faith in God than we have nothing to worry about."
Mortal "People can be entirely too judgemental. And don't get me started on the paparazzi. But still, I'm a people person."

Contacts

Cadence "She sings really well, and she's cute on top. I love her hair. The tattoos are neat, but kinda scary...didn't that HURT?"
Chastity "I had no idea that librarians were supposed to be sexy. Or was it a museum. Anyhow, she's interesting!"
Foster "Good chance at improving my ratings, and his, too. Plus, pissing off a bunch of right-wing, uptight assholes? Win."
Jack "Really smart, and has his fingers in a ton of local pies. He's going to be a great choice for my manager. I'm so glad it worked out."
Klem "She works at a restaurant, and comes in with a black eye? Not very good business sense. But that whole place is weird."
Rodrigo "I think I have a new mechanic! He's kinda young, but he seems to know his stuff. And cute, too. That doesn't hurt."
Typhanie "Voice like an angel, and she's suffered more than most people should have. I'll make sure that she gets a little karmic justice."

RP Hooks

  • High Resources
Are you part of the rich and famous? Tina brings in an ungodly amount of money every year, and moves in those rarified circles. If you're the sort who goes to red-carpet events, premieres, VIP sections of clubs, or wanders on down to Beverly Hills or Rodeo Drive when it's time to go shop, you may know her or she may know you.
  • Famous. No, /really/.
Tina is ridonkulously famous, of the "famous for being famous" variety. She comes from a rich family, she's gorgeous, and oh, yeah, that sex tape that got leaked to the Internet didn't hurt any. Since then, she's become a ubiquitous face on the Internet and in tabloids, a paragon for America's obsession with celebrity. They're getting ready to launch a reality TV show regarding her, which is why she's in Prospect in the first place. Like her or hate her, unless you live in a cave, you've probably heard of her/seen her, if only on the tabloid covers in the grocery lines. Maybe you want an autograph? Or to take a picture with her? Or just to people-watch?
  • The Fourth Estate
The media. Tina rarely goes anywhere that there aren't paparazzi following her. That's lessened now that she came out to Prospect from L.A., but it hasn't stopped by any means. It certainly draws attention, as there's almost always a crowd around her if she's out and about on the street. In private businesses, they keep the riff-raff out, but it certainly gets attention on the street, and could be an easy hook, whether your character is one of the media, or just interested in the spectacle that's going on.
  • Reality TV
They're currently spinning up a reality show based on Tina moving away from the bright lights of L.A. and out to Prospect, focusing a little on the fish-out-of-water while still continuing to chronicle her life. It's the sort of thing that fits well on E!, and as such, there's frequently cameras following her. If you're a business owner or employee, it's possible that she or her people might arrange you to get permission to film at your location. Whether you don't want the publicity (too much light in your shadows), or you do (hey, free publicity, right?), it's still an RP hook either way.
  • Charity
Tina is currently setting up for a non-profit charity. Of course, the press is billing it as just a P.R. stunt and something else to get attention, but regardless of the intent, that's still potentially a LOT of money to get thrown at charitable causes. Are you in need? Or are you the kind of person who might be good at running a charity? Talk to me!

Tropes

  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: She is, essentially, the City-of-Hope-verse replacement for Kim Kardashian. Names have been changed to protect the guilty.
  • Upper Class Twit: To a T. She comes from a rich family, and truth be told, she's kind of an airhead.
  • Male Gaze: She is most-well known for a specific body part, and it's what tends to catch the eye of the average guy first.
  • Brainless Beauty: She's pretty, she's nice...but she's not particularly bright.
  • Ms. Fanservice: What most of the public views her as a walking, talking example of.
  • Socialite: From the top of her fresh-from-the-salon hair, to the tips of her pedicured toes.
  • Reality TV: They are currently setting up to film a show surrounding her. Here in Prospect. Be afraid.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She is more of this than Rich Bitch. While she has money and is a bit dim, she's actually, honestly, nice.
  • Hidden Depths: Her recent starting up of a charity might be seen as this by some. Of course, it also might be seen as another attempt to gain popularity. Your mileage may vary.
  • My Eyes Are Up Here: Most people around her are not looking at her face, let's put it that way.
  • Attention Whore: She's accused of this by almost everyone. It is a justified trope.
