Codename: Bee

Real Name: ▊▊▊ ▊▊▊

History

Bee has spent almost her entire life plagued by anxiety. Not for any particular reason, but just because, and as a result, she spent much of her time isolated and lost in her own thoughts. There used to be times when she was in fact a little more outwardly like Hawk - more excited and more vocal about all the things she was interested in, but with immensely more self-awareness, she quickly grew embarrassed over sharing them with people who either mocked or ignored her, and started keeping everything to herself.

This attitude was only amplified the older Bee got. In her eyes, life usually went smoother when she had the option to be as selective as possible when choosing the people around her. She loved anime and gaming and superheroes, and in her small hometown, there weren’t too many others like her, so instead, she found solace and friendship in online circles. Although it brought her some comfort to talk to others who accepted her, it only added to the decline of her in-person social skills.

Bee didn’t expect much different when she first moved off to college, and even though she made a close friend with Wolf, Bee couldn’t even see the truth in their relationship. So naturally, when she had a very strange meeting and revelation in her sophomore year, it seemed only natural to her that she would turn to the online world for guidance instead of simply talking to the people around her.
