Character background: With how Myra presents herself, no one would have ever guessed that the “hipster” grew up in one of the most high class neighborhoods in Plano, Texas. With majority of her family living in one of the wealthiest cities in the United States, as a young girl, she was always around people who wanted the finest and nothing but the finest. As she grew older, she began to take a liking towards the more overlooked things in life, her social status becoming something she hardly ever thought about, if even at all. Labeling most of her family and childhood friends as “snooty” she was quick to pick up and leave at her first chance. After the first two years of high school at Bellville High, she talked with her mother and step-father, getting full permission to move north and settle in with her father in Connecticut.
Personality: Myra Ruiz is known as the hipster around campus. She practices independent thinking with everything she does - whether it’s how she dresses, how she styles her hair, how she wears her makeup, the way she speaks, the music she listens to, she’ll make sure to show off her own and creative way of viewing the world. She’s known around campus for her witty banter and for her habit of constantly changing her appearance. In her head, things that stay the same for long grow old and give off bad vibes of failure. Though she gets many funny looks, she’s oblivious to it all and just focuses on what she wants to see. Myra is one of the few girls at the academy who avoids drama, but if she does ever come face-to-face with a person who talks badly about something she feels very passionately about, she will make sure to speak her mind. Other than that, she’s a care-free girl and is very laid back and sort of just goes with the flow of everyday life.
What they want from Easton: Though she’s never voiced this, Myra has a set goal to get the whole of Easton to see things as she does. With the amount of drama-starting rumors flying about the school, she wants to somehow stop all of the hatred, creating a loving environment where everyone is equal. Though she’s only one girl, she’s very determined to get the students of the academy to learn how to deal with things in a more orderly manner.
