| Briar Sawyer is inactive and can no longer roleplay.
Portrayer's note: I would remake her but I don't feel like doing those prompts. I could've developed her more but I think school overwhelmed me.

Briar has blonde hair usually it's straight but most of the time she'll curl it. Sometimes she puts it in a ponytail and adds some bangs. She'll either wears red lipstick but not usually or nude lip gloss. She wears very light make up. Briar is not very tall for her age but from an angle in pictures it seems like she's tall. She's very slender. She wears casual stylish clothing that's expensive and loves vintage dresses and shirts because they remind her of good days she's had back then.
Briar is a bit too happy for a girl who has been in and out of Foster homes. Though she's been tortured she doesn't express it through feeling. She's very helpful and friendly to anyone who comes her way but this makes her a bit naive to the world around her. She doesn't follow the saying "don't talk to strangers". She'll talk to anyone even the mean old man down the street. She hates it though when people are rude to her for no reason or if they do something that really aggravates her and they act really snooty about it instead of being apologetic or at least kind out about it. She tends to become rude them to show them their own attitude. She tends to think that no one else has had it worse than her even though some had.
Briar spent her whole life in an orphanage. On September 8, 1998 Briar was born to an unknown woman and man who didn't want kids yet because they were so young in Columbus, Ohio. She was given up and sent to an orphanage at only a few months old. It was there Briar made so many friends.
At age 5 she was adopted into the Hollis family. They were a strange family but weren't known as kind people. The first day she went home with them it was a nightmare. Trash everywhere, a pigsty, mice, children crying and especially noisy. Briar didn't like it there. One night she went to bed, it was to hard to go to sleep because there were so many hired noises. Then Mr.Hollis came in, he had a fight with his wife as usual and began drinking but this time he entered Briar's room instead of going down stairs.
His breath stank, then he entered the bed lying next to Briar and started petting her. He said everything was going to be alright but if she screamed he would kill her. He raped 6 year old Briar and covered her mouth with his dirty hands so she wouldn't scream. When Briar woke up she thought it was a dream but it was so real, she remembered every single moment of it. That day, Mr.Hollis went to work and Briar had been left with her other siblings and Mrs.Hollis.
Mrs.Hollis was a wicked soul indeed. All she did was hit Briar and insulted her it did nothing but make Mrs.Hollis feel good and Briar feel worse. After spending just a few days with them she had gotten raped, abused and beaten also not mention threatened. So she ran away and escaped through her bedroom window jumping almost to her death. She landed hardly on the ground with pieces of glass in her arm and her arm broken.
She was taken to the hospital and her wounds were treated. They took Mr. and Mrs.Hollis in for child endangerment. Briar was placed in a new foster care. Except this one was brutal. They made all the children clean and work and made them live dirty lifestyles. Briar saw how all the children were so eager to get out. At age 8, Briar caught the eye of Mr.Rayford. After arriving home, Briar met Mrs.Rayford who was not very kind because she thought Briar was out to steal all Mr.Rayford's wealth. Soon Mr.Rayford had grown tired of Mrs.Rayford's antics so he kicked her out and divorced her.
This left Briar and him alone in the house. At first he loved her like a true daughter bought gifts for her and even tucked her into bed at night. Soon Mr.Rayford found himself very lonely. He started to look at Briar as more than a daughter. He tried to hide those feelings convincing himself, those thoughts were very sick. It wasn't working. Soon he found himself coming up with ways to have her.At night he would wake up restless and go to Briar's room, rubbing her legs slowly while she was asleep.
She could feel this motion happening to her and she became a afraid that he would do something crazy to her.When he tried his advances Briar would kick him or run off but this only caused him to beat her. This gave her nightmares and flashbacks. The rape eventually happened. It was in the wee hours of Briar's 9th birthday. She couldn't believe that what happened and was so traumatized. That day he pretended that the rape never happened and said she was just imagining stuff. So that night she took his gun from his private quarters and her warmest sweater and ran.
She found many people on the streets and they started following her and by the time they came closer she turned around and waited for them to come really close. They were grinning mischievously and then she pulled out the gun not really knowing the correct way to hold it but she managed to scare all of them off and scare them. She got tired and found somewhere by a big rock to sleep. She was again found by a police man and woman who were strolling by.
This time she was taken to a new orphanage nothing really new but children were miserable there as usual. And yet she had been taking in by a new family the New man's. First day she didn't really see anything wrong with them besides as usual children who teased Briar about her background which caused her to fight. This time, Mrs.Newman didn't hate her she despised her because she was jealous of Briar which Briar found to be very ironic.
At age 10 Briar grown tired of being mistreated so she'd fight back either physically or verbally. She's say most of the time "You wouldn't know pain if it bit you in the ass". Then Mrs.Newman and her kids left for a day at the carnival leaving Mr.Newman along with his friends alone with Briar. She didn't really trust, she expected some form of rape to occur and just made sure she was near a bunch of weapons. The group asked her to get some chips and dip for them. She did exactly that but slipped two knives into her pockets just to be safe.
Then Mr.Newman's favorite football team had lost and he and his friends became so enraged. They looked for something to take there anger out on and then they saw Briar in plain sight. After pinning her down and each taking turns on her Briar stabbed one knife into Mr.Newman and the other into his friend and she looked for some sharp thing which was a pen and deeply stabbed into the last one. Then she fleed from the scene leaving Mrs.Newman and her children to find her husband and his friends dead and their picture frames smashed.
Briar ran blocks and streets till she found an orphanage to hide out in but soon the people in charge found out about her and still took in. Luckily for Briar that month, a new family, the Sawyer's, came looking for a daughter and they said Briar was the perfect little girl. Coming home with them she found out she would have a new, kind and sweet older brother which she didn't expect. That first night she stayed awake and surely waited for someone to try and come into her room and rape her but no one came. For days her adoptive family were so kind to her. On her 11th birthday she got an genuine present from the heart and since then she has remained with the Sawyers ever since. About a month and a few days after her eleventh birthday, she figured out she had another brother. This time it was a younger sibling. His name was Scotty and he just came back from science camp. Briar thought he was the sweetest thing ever though you'd kind of expect that from a ten year old.
Briar soon graduated Lebeaux Elementary and moved on Lebeaux preparatory school. Soon Briar met this 9 year old girl named Marlin. She was sort of in the same position as Briar. She wasn't abused she just felt lonely and was picked on at school. Briar made a deal which kept Briar busy. Each time Marlin's parents went out Briar would be there to encourage her and keep her company and also not to mention homework help. Soon Marlin moved away but she promised her she would always keep in touch. Briar wondered how but she knew that Marlin would keep her promise.
Since then Briar just developed this love for young children. It was a motherly love for the less fortunate. She just wanted to nurture and take care of them. At age 12 she began babysitting more and at age 13 she would take community jobs that placed her in an environment of young kids. At age 14 she began thinking about her future as an adult. She told her parents she wanted to be a first grade teacher. That made her parents proud and encourage her more.
Briar's whole attitude change and now she's in the 11th grade attending still LPS. She's looking forward to making more friends. She's aware of her surroundings and she's met a few people, some she hates some she likes. She still resents her parents forgiving her up to an orphanage and causing her so much pain and distress. She never wants to meet them and she's still trying to find the heart to forgive them. She doesn't really care where they are. She's just happy with the Sawyer's.
When Briar graduates Lebeaux Preparatory, she want to go the Barfield Institute of Science and Technology, not because it's expensive but she's heard that it is a really good school, her brother, Scotty will be going there too because their in the same grade and he's like this boy genius.
|I think I kinda based it on Maleficent, well very tiny parts like the heart breaks and the betrayals. Originally this was gonna be Ella Purnell who played young Maleficent it's ironic that I just saw the movie. Then I saw that no one else was using Olivia Holt so I was like screw it, I'll use Olivia Holt.I needed the colors to go with the picture. And she'll be requested after Ruthie goes inactive. I don't plan on keeping Ruthie too long. Idk, I'm not so big on Ella Purnell anymore, so I decided Olivia Holt. Now I can't decide between her and Melrose. I like Briar and I plan in keeping her for a long time :). I feel like Briar is interesting originally I was gonna make her but then like mark her inactive after a week or two but that's not happening anytime soon.|
