First things first, Jersey is not from, not has she ever lived in, New, or old, Jersey. Her name was a fluke of sorts. During one of her mother's ultrasounds, her father had blurted out that she was shaped like New Jersey. It had stuck. Jersey was actually born on a U.S. military base in the South Pacific. Her father was a member of the military, and her mother a local. It was not an uncommon occurrance, to be sure, but it did mean that Jersey spent a good deal of her childhood moving from country to country with each of her father's assignments. While shew was hardly the only child of military parents living on base, or attending any of the schools she went to, it was still largely a lonely existence. It was very had to make friends, and practically impossible to make friends you grew close enough to, to truly open up with. It seemed the moment you got close to that magical moment, you were told to pack your bags.
Jersey was a very resillient child. She grew to become quite independent, and even once she was able to stay in one place for a meaningful period of time, she continued to value her indepence and personal space. In short, she largely grew into an introvert. This did not mean, however, that Jersey wanted to be alone, or that she shunned human contact, just that she found an alternative means to sate her desire for companionship. Enter the internet. Jersey doesn't know when she first started to use a computer, but the internet became her lifeline from an early age. Coding was her language, and forums were her soap boxes. To be fair, this lead to her being a bit on the precocious side, but it also gave her something to dive into. Computer systems were like puzzles, puzzles in different languages, and she rather enjoyed solving them.
The internet, being the special place that it is, also introduce Jersey to the wonderful world of fandoms. When Jersey was not puzzling out a new challenge, she was bingeing her favorite shows, and building cosplay costumes, which she would then proudly wear when she was able to go to a con. Safe or not, she even met some of her internet friends at cosplay events, and she cherished these face to face interactions, more so than any other. These were the people that knew her, not the classmates that she would know for a few months, and then forget in a few days. In short, she enjoyed those few brief times when she got to be her loud, slightly goofy, and very opinionated, person...in person.
Until Jersey was sixteen, she had not remained in the United States for more than a few weeks at any given time. Thankfully, her father decided to finally slow down, giving her some breathing room. Enter Washington, D.C. Jersey was originally excited to be somewhere, and know that it was for more than a short while. Acclimating, however, was not easy, and she never did feel like she fit in. She couldn't shake the sense that this was all temporary, and she never found the key to connecting to people in person, rather than from safely behind a computer screen. She tried, though, a bit too hard at times, leading to unfortunate results. Prom night, the night that has spawned a thousand teen movies and millions more raunchy daydreams, was an absolute nightmare. Jersey drank way too much, stayed out way too late, and had to escape from her octopus like date. Pretty standard, to be honest, except that the asshole, a bit zealous in his efforts to get her intersted, bit her lip a tad bit too hard. Again, not entirely unusual, except for the fact that he happened to be a wererat, and wererats are contagious in human form.
