CHARACTER JOURNAL: theredbee
NAME: Jenna Raleigh
CODENAME: Red Bee
AGE/DATE OF BIRTH: 30 | Aug 22
APPEARANCE: Standing at 5'7, Jenna is slightly taller than the majority of her family though she looks quite a lot like them when it comes down to her appearance. Quit slim, she has long blonde hair and blue eyes. Despite being skinny she doesn't appear so, it is obvious that she works out a lot to stay fit and while she could put on more weight she is healthy - if on the lower side of the range for her height.
Jenna isn't one to wear jewellery or dress up a lot unless she absolutely have to, preferring to wear comfortable clothes when she isn't working such as jeans and the like though she has a range of dresses and the like if the situation or her mood calls for it.
Confident in herself, she carries herself in a way that shows it - tall, comfortable and in a way that shows she's happy with who she is. When it comes to defining marks she has her ears pierced twice though she rarely wears earrings these days and a birth mark the shape of a crescent on the small of her back as well as a scar on her leg from a childhood accident.
PERSONALITY: Jenna is someone who cares about people no matter who they are, she's the type of person to trust people first and believes until there is no other choice that there is good in everyone. Of course she knows that not everyone is good - growing up with her grandfather as the Red Bee and know holding the mantel herself she is aware of the darkness in the world but that is just one of the reasons she looks to the light to counteract the dark that she sees during her vigilante work. While she isn't against seriously harming the villains that she fights she has a secret desire (though she knows it is highly unlikely)that they can be redeemed, at the very least she likes seeing them brought to justice for all the pain that they have caused the citizens of Gotham.
Realistically, Jenna is a very fair person who does believe in justice - if you deserve something then you should get it so obviously at the same time she hates seeing innocent people being harmed in anyway - dying, being ill, going to prison when they didn't commit the crime etc. This is one of the reasons that she ended up becoming a Nurse once she finished school, in the hopes of being able to help people as much as possible.
Despite this, Jenna can be highly stubborn at times, refusing to back down even when she thinks she is wrong - she can't be wrong especially when it means something bad has or will occur if she is. She will argue until she is blue in the face and will only back down if there is no other choice and even then she doesn't like having to do that. To her backing down means admitting defeat and if she admits defeat she isn't good enough at what she is doing whether it be nursing, vigilante work or anything else that she might be under taking.
Jenna is highly intelligent and was luckily graced with a very good auditory memory that is bordering on eidetic if it isn't there, something she has found incredibly useful over the years.
She believes in loyalty to oneself and ones family no matter what as well as loyalty to ones beliefs. Jenna would never do anything to hurt her family and friends nor betray her values and ethics, which is one reason she is a vigilante/hero as well as a nurse. She believes in helping people, of protecting them and making the world a better place with her biggest dream being world peace and the ending of poverty.
Unfortunately though it might go hand in hand with her stubborn streak, Jenna can hold a grudge like no other. She rarely if ever forgives people and has been known to turn her back on some of her closest friends after they did something she perceived to be unforgivable.
→ Is very much a people person getting along well with a lot of people. She finds it easy to get them to talk to her and have fun with them unless they've done something to seriously piss her off. This definitely comes in handy with her work.
→ She is very good with technology and can modify and create things to suit her own purposes.
→ She has a very good memory for remembering details that helps her a lot in her professional job and that as the Red Bee
→ She can read people's body language enough to get by.
HISTORY: Jenna is an only child of her parents Sophia and Wayne Raleigh, not by choice though. Her birth and pregnancy was difficult for Sophia who unfortunately passed away due to blood loss during the birth. Having gone into labour early, Sophia had no chance to have a c section which would have ended up saving her life, instead her daughter Jenna was raised solely by her father Wayne.
Despite this, Jenna had a relatively good childhood and spent a lot of time with her father's family. Her favourite was her grandfather, Rick Raleigh who she spent a lot of time with as they got on quite well and was the reason she became a super hero in the first place. Before that day though, she had a normal childhood filled with school, friends, love and heart breaks and everything else that a normal girl would go through.
At school while she wasn't popular she had her own group of friends who she adored and would spend a lot of time with. She enjoyed spending time with them at each others houses, watching movies and just other general stuff that was typical for their age. She also enjoyed her school work though she excelled at the sciences and social studies finding that she got on well with people and could make them calm down when they were upset. When it came time to choose her college courses her teachers suggested either social work or nursing, the latter which she went with.
Over the years she dated a few people though she didn't really have a serious relationship until she reached college which lasted for the four years she was there. She is currently in a fairly serious relationship though.
Her college years went well and she graduated near the top of her class in nursing and easily found a job at the Gotham City Hospital. She found that even if she started on the night shift as a fairly low level nurse that she loved her job and found it quite rewarding.
Her life continued quietly for many years, though she was aware of the super heroes and their enemies in and around Gotham, she kept mostly to herself with no real idea who they were outside of their code names. That was until her grandfather approached her not that long ago explaining his role as the Red Bee, his enemy Clayface and the fact that he wanted her to assume the mantel of Red Bee now that he was back.
