Her snakes’ bites are venomous. But because they are so short and can’t reach beyond their host’s head, nobody knows this. Not even Genevieve.
If someone stares too long at her, she can petrify them - not turn them fully to stone, since she’s a baby Gorgon, but she can paralyze them momentarily. Think of the ‘paralyze’ status condition from Pokemon.
Likes: snakes. cute clothes and accessories. (she laments the fact that Brookview has uniforms but deals with it.) making new friends. making new enemies. gossip. sweet things, especially gummies. feeling powerful. sports. (both watching and playing sports.)
Dislikes: being ignored. being backstabbed. mint flavored things. (she’s allergic.) when her snakes keep moving around and she wants them to stay still. nerds. (the people, not the candy. she loves the candy.)
Personality: Genevieve is what some might consider a “prep”. She’s neatly organized and well-dressed - though she would be better-dressed if there weren’t uniforms, as she feels the need to say every time someone mentions them. At every school she’s been to, she feels the need to get to know as many people as possible so she can wrap her head around the social hierarchy (get it? snake joke), and start conquering it by getting in with the right people. She’s cheerful and sweet among those she likes, and absolutely venomous among those she doesn’t.
History: Genevieve grew up in a sisterhood of Gorgons, the youngest of many siblings. They live somewhat secluded from normal society, but occasionally will go out into the world and bring back trinkets or knowledge. She looks up to her sisters (not all of which are biologically related to her) quite a lot, but feels babied whenever she is around them since she is so young and inexperienced. She loved hearing stories about their adventures and the people they had met, wanting to go on adventures of her own. When the elders of her community noticed Genevieve felt unsatisfied in her current environment, they suggested she go to school and get an education in the outside world. She has been looking forward to coming to Brookview ever since, and is eager to find an environment where she feels on top for once instead of always on the bottom.
The snakes have a shared personality that is a little different than Genevieve’s, they are usually happy and curious about the world around them, and have much less complex feelings than Genevieve. However, they are influenced by her own feelings so if she feels extreme emotions they will join her in feeling them, or at least acting out on them. (Angry snakes is no good. At least they can’t reach that far.)
