Pet Name: Joobileen
With a particular fondness for reading, Joobileen's days would be filled with adventures and escapades in the faraway places described in her favorite novels if she could have her way. She imagined herself as the protagonist in each of the stories she read -- to that end, she loved to act the part of the main character, dressing up in costume and playing the role. On one day, she was a cunning fighter, working to overthrow an evil warlord that sought to destroy all of the lands. On another, she was a headstrong heiress to a large fortune who sought to be valued not just for her fortune. Her younger siblings were all too familiar with her role playing; they soon became adept at telling when she was acting a role just by looking at the hat she had picked out to wear that day. She saw herself becoming an actress one day, reading magnificent scripts and transforming the characters on page into real life. But the path that lies before each of us is often not what we expect or ask for. Joobileen's life is no different.
Since as long as she could remember, Joobileen has always had to fill the shoes of being the big, protective sister. That was hard enough, seeing as how "big" is never really the first word that comes to mind when describing a JubJub. But now, she was faced with the days of unrest as tales of a new, mysterious obelisk were running wild. It's not that life was particularly difficult or more difficult than before, but Joobileen could feel the unease creeping up behind her as she heard hushed whispers regarding efforts to spark an uprising, a revolution, with different shadowy groups each seeking to claim the obelisk for themselves. And if her beloved books were anything to go by, Joobileen knew that with revolutions, conflict often followed close behind. For Joobileen, there was but one thing that she loved more than her books: her family.
So as much as she wished she could whittle away the hours devouring book after book, Joobileen was often away at training and practice. She trained day and night, knowing that while she had started her training late, that didn't mean she couldn't eventually catch up. After all, all that book reading and playacting in someone else's shoes had made her cunning and smart; despite her small size and perceived lack of strength, she could always depend on her wits to outsmart her opponent in the end. In fact, she found that her quiet, outwardly demeanor was something she could use to her advantage.
Joobileen knew one thing for sure -- if ever she did find her home in danger, she would not be caught unawares. She would prove to the world that her family was not one to be messed with. After all, she thought to herself, the more she was willing to sacrifice for her family, the better the story that would be written about her.
