Her appearance is something Cleo used to be self-conscious about but now she takes pride in it. She likes wearing a bit revealing outfits that shows off some of her features. Cleo usually likes wearing darker colors with edge to them, but sometimes her style changes and she goes for light and girly clothing. Her makeup usually matches the tone of her clothing. If she is wearing light colors, she'll go for light makeup. Dark colors, dark makeup. Sometimes she switches it up though. She stands at five feet and six inches, and is usually wearing heels that add an extra inch or two, so she seems about 5'8". Cleo is also always changing up her hairstyles and hair colors. Currently she is wearing long and brown extensions but is thinking of changing it soon.
Cleo seems very pompous and full of it, but she actually is a bit insecure. She is not nearly as insecure as she used to be, but she has her moments of weakness. Cleo is rude or mean to people she views as a threat, but she has shown to be very kind to people that seem fragile to her. Cleo is loud and talkative, and is always cool with meeting new people. She is an attention-seeker, and always wants the spotlight on herself because she is overlooked at home. Many people misunderstand her, but she honestly doesn't care. Cleo is rebellious, and does not always just agree with what everyone else is saying. Regardless, most of the time she knows when to back down and just take it without turning a situation into a big deal. Cleo is known to hold grudges.
Cleo was born June 8, 1997, in Miduna Beach. Her parents took good care of her while she was a baby and she had no troubles. About a week after her second birthday, her parents gave birth to a little girl and they named her Layla. Her parents did not know how to give them an equal amount of attention, especially since there was a new baby in the house. Cleo at first loved the idea of having a sister until she realized that they never paid attention to her anymore. They gave all of Cleo's toys to the baby, and Cleo was not allowed to play with any of Layla's toys. When Layla broke a toy or no longer wanted it, that is when they decided to give it to Cleo. They paid little attention to what clothing they bought for Cleo, but was always finding cute outfits for her sister. This made Cleo start to slowly dislike her sister. As Layla got a little bit older, she became bossy and mean to Cleo. Every time they were in public, Cleo would try to lose Layla so that Layla could be out of her life so her parents could pay a little attention to her.
When Cleo was six, her grandmother moved in since she could no longer take care of herself since her husband had died. Her grandmother liked Layla better as well and she made it quite obvious. With Layla having all three adults' complete attention, Cleo was left on the sideline.
When Cleo entered school, she was bullied because everyone thought she was fat and ugly. She had to go through it without her parents' support because they were too busy watching over Layla to notice what she was going through. Cleo made only one friend, which was Faryah. Faryah was an exchange student with a completely different mindset from everyone else in her grade, and she stayed by Cleo's side. The thing was that she wasn't even fat; she just still hadn't lost her baby fat yet and nearly everyone else already had.
Cleo grew out of what everyone called 'ugly', and the bullying gradually came to a close. During the bullying, Cleo's grades had dropped, but she worked really hard to bring her grades up.
In order to boost her self-esteem, Cleo has become much bolder. To others, she may seem overly confident and arrogant, but she actually does that so she won't go back to telling herself bad things and making herself feel ugly. She tries very hard in school, but she still finds time to go to a lot of parties. She is still good friends with Faryah, whom she plans to leave her family and move in with soon.
Grandmother:Cleo's grandmother likes being called 'Nan' but Cleo absolutely refuses to call her that. Along with her parents, Grandmother has always prefered Layla to Cleo and spoiled her. Grandmother is always chastising Cleo, but always praising Layla.
Mother and Father:Cleo has been calling them Mother and Father for years. Their relationship is on the negative side and has been ever since Layla joined the family. Mother and Father were not there for her during her time of struggle, and didn't even know about what she was going through. Cleo is planning that when she turns eighteen, she will move out with Faryah, her best friend.
Layla Swan: Layla is her sister. Cleo hates her and likes to let Layla know that. Most of the time she will just ignore her, but whenever she actually does talk to her, it is never a kind exchange. Cleo doesn't hate her entirely, but she does dislike her very, very much.
Faryah: A real pal.
