Personality: Jenna is a sweetheart to everyone she meets. Especially in front of her kids friends. When its just her and the kids, she can be really outgoing and a lot of fun to be around. In fact, she will look the other way when it comes to breaking the rules. Has a rebel streak that rubs off on her kids but, she looks out for them and tries to be a good role model. When its night time, Jenna turns into a completely different woman with a second personality that her kids are slightly aware of. Jenna can be a real flirt and seductress; that you can't really blame her. Considering she's single and never made it to the alter that she's kind of held a grudge against men but, they don't know that about her. On the other hand, she knows how to have a good time and only gets pissed off, if anybody harms her plants or tries to hurt her kids or gets in her way. There's a small chance she has a hit list too but, you didn't hear that from me.
Appearance: If its a Saturday, Jenna wears a pair of light blue skinny jeans and a light pink tank top that she covers with a strawberry pattern short sleeve blouse over it; although sometimes she has to be talked into wearing said outfit because, she prefers wearing her sweat pants with a large purple t-shirt with the band New Politics on it. If its the weekday, she usually wears a pair of black slacks and a red shirt with a name tag on her right shoulder and a black jacket with zippers that she wears for work.
Bust Size: B cup
Hair Color: Strawberry Blonde
Eye Color: Green
Bio: Jenna happens to work along side of a detective. Only its a black market and illegal kind of deal that pays big bucks. Whenever their client screws them over, her task is to leave a strangler. (aka a plant) That kills people. Although, Jenna has a way of disliking teachers and anyone whom bullies her kids, so she switches up the plants, depending on which person did what. Otherwise, she's a fun loving mother that lost her husband to be at the alter to another woman, and was pregnant at twenty three. Her best friend's brother was the one to hire her the job and nobody knows her secret in shady work.
Other: Has a fondness over fire trucks and trucks in general. Favorite color is red and favorite kind of soda is cocoa cola.
Name: Dr. Durian Figus
Position: Professor of Ecology, Archaeo-Ecology and Necroplanet Ecology
Biography: It’s not easy studying the ecology of dead planets. The work itself is exhausting, gleaning clues from the blasted remains of rocks circling long-dead suns and trying to imagine what sort of life— plant, animal, or otherwise— might once have lived there. It doesn’t earn you much interest or respect either (to say nothing of funding); my seminars traditionally have two or three students in attendance, one of whom probably lost a bet to be there. Nevermind that it is the single most crucial field to understanding the history of our species and of life in the universe! No, let’s spend all our R&D investigating claims of psychism in space-faring cnidarians. My Galaxy…
Publications: You probably have heard of me. My doctoral dissertation, Evidence of Post-Nuclear Terraforming in Ancient Martian Ecosystems, brought my field a spectacularly brief moment in the academic limelight, Martian scholars being always hungry for papers concerning our long lost home planet.
More likely, however, you know me for my second publication, Possible origins of the Ficus carica, a far more modest title which nonetheless plunged me and my peers below anonymity and into the infamy of scientific and popular scorn. In this paper I had the temerity to spell out what was already apparent in the conclusions of my previous paper—that numerous so-called “Martian” plants, including the ficus carica, could not have originated on Mars, but rather from the third (now destroyed) planet of that solar system. This claim very nearly put me on the stake; not because people cared so deeply about the common fig, but because what is true of plant life must equally be true of animal life. They objected to what they considered the ‘desecration’ of our shared history and culture, but the truth is that the term “Martian” is a misnomer when applied to our species—we should be calling ourselves “Earthlings.”
