You know what's weird? She's my "me" pet. I realized that recently. Her character is a guardian of treasure, and she turned into me. I wonder what the psychology is behind that. I wonder what I think I'm protecting. My little boy? Come to think of it her character didn't come about until after I knew about Christopher. He was my treasure from the very first moment. I had a lot of free time back then, spent a lot of it on Neo while I waited to meet Christopher...and I created this random treasure guardian character and never even bothered to come up with something for her to guard. It was just "treasure" and in my head it was some abstract concept, one which I never even intended to define. Probably because I can't. I can't define that kind of treasure. No one can. She's a mama Lupe.
And I didn't even realize it until recently. I didn't even know what it was about. But that's it, clearly. How strange and poetic.
And look, she even has my dark circles.
