NICOLE TYRA VICTORS
<Played by Cara>
Full Name>> Nicole Tyra Victors
Date of Birth>> July 12th 2004; 14
Staff or Student>> Student
House>> Blue Ribbon House
Sexuality>> Heterosexual (though honestly, who has time for romance?)
Face Claim>> AnnaSophia Robb
Personality>> Nikki has the type of personality that makes people want to notice her. However, she is a very private person and prefers to keep to herself, even if the populars want to be her best friend. She is book-smart and streetwise, there seems to be nothing that worries her about her school work, even though she hates it with a vengeance, and if it wasn't for the fact that she has to maintain straight A's, she'd flunk school just cause it's the least thing she cares about.
She lives for gymnastics, and that is where she truly comes alive. It's in the studio that you realise how much of a nasty, manipulative person she can be. Who will do anything in her power to win, no matter who gets hurt on the way.
The colour yellow,
The smell of mowed grass,
Rips (on her hands),
Arrogant, self-absorbed jerks
Fears>> Stuffing a move and breaking her back
Hopes>> To make it past being an elite and qualify for the Olympics,
To make a name for herself before she peaks
Secrets>> Stole a team-mate's grips at a competition
Spent a month stalking her horse's (new) owner, including spending the night outside of the barn
Appearance>> Nikki's eyes, while normally a pale green, change colour depending on her mood, as she loves coloured contacts- hey, if she has to wear corrective lenses, she may as well as have fun with it - though she keeps them pretty normal colours, nothing like red or yellow.
She's relatively short, hasn't hit her teenage growth-spurt yet, but her attitude makes up for it and even if she has to look up at most people, she does well at seeming to look down on nearly everyone. Truth be told though, her mother is relatively short, so there isn't much hope of her reaching more than her already 5'2".
Her out-of-the-gym dress-sense is jeans and a classy top. Her nails are always perfect and her hair will always be pulled back, the odd strands framing her face, and normally with glitter (the colour depends on what she is wearing).
Markings>> Scar on her forearm from where they had to do surgery to reset her bone.
Medical History>> Broken most bones during gymnastics (not her back though thankfully),
Wears contact due to being short sighted
Full History>> Nikki was born just outside of Washington DC to two very wealthy parents. Her mother spent every minute with her baby until the girl was old enough to be passed off to a nanny and then she didn't see much of her parents for the next couple of years. Don't get me wrong, they loved her very much, and gave her extravagant gifts, it was just that their jobs took them away from home for long hours at a time and their only child's care was left to that of the girl's nanny and the rest of the household staff.
At the age of one and a half, she was enrolled into gymnastics and her nanny took her to the tumble class once a week. As she got older, Nikki found a passion for gymnastics and it went from just being a once a week thing to a daily thing and in the end - when she was eight - her parents enrolled her in a gymnastics academy. The girl still lived at home with her parents, but rather than going to school with other children her own age, she spent nearly all of her waking hours at the gym and the rest of them at home with a tutor doing her school work.
This continued until the present day. Nikki loved her gymnastics and it seemed that the sport also loved her. She didn't have to look hard to find people who wanted to endorse her and give her money for advertising their products; breakfast bars, moisturizers, clothing agencies. However, they only cared about her if she won. And to win, her coaches became harder and harder on her. They seemed to push Nikki much harder than the other gymnasts.
For her 8th birthday her mother signed Nikki up for Pony club and as luck would have it, one of the members was selling her old pony so Nikki got him on lease. She loved going to PC each month and picked things up very quickly. So between gymnastics and horse riding, Nikki's life was action packed, and her parents counted their lucky stars that she was homeschooled and they didn't have to worry about her missing school for all the different competitions.
Then the world crashed on Nikki and when she arrived to ride one day, she found that her pony had been sold over night, with no warning, and he was gone. Nikki was furious, and didn't want to ride any of the other ponies that were available. Monty had been her entire world, he was the only one who understood her, as she had told him all her secrets; when her days at the gym had been tough, Monty was the one she vented to, he was her best friend, and no one seemed to care about this as he was just gone, and they wouldn't even tell her who he had gone to.
After this her grades started slipping and endorsements began to also slip away, and her parents suddenly clicked to the fact that their normally bubbly, super attentive daughter had changed, the girl's personality had suddenly done a complete 180 and all the girl cared about was winning and pleasing her coaches. Since the pony had gone, she hadn't stepped foot back on the yard; her room was stripped of anything that had to do with horses, even her large collection of Breyer models had been packed away.
To save their young daughter from killing herself, they began to look into boarding schools with good gymnastic programs and finally came across the site for Blue Ridge Riding Academy. It was also the name of one of the Academy's alumni gymnasts, that clinched the deal. Nikki had competed at the same meets as the older girls in the past, not quite at the other gymnasts' level, but they knew that if they used the other girls' names, Nikki shouldn't say no, and even if she did, they had already made the decision and enrolled their troubled daughter.
