|Leto Jackson is inactive and can no longer roleplay.|
|Birthday:||29th of June, 1999|
|Address:||24 Kelmscot Court|
|Relationships:||Single and NOT ready to mingle|
Leto, as the shy person she is, is self conscious about her looks. She takes compliments, but prefers to choose clothes she's comfortable in, meaning singlets and shorts. She doesn't feel the cold very much, so this is her normal wear. If she sees someone looking at her in a strange way, she inwardly freaks out, becoming nervous that something is wrong with a) her, or b) her outfit.
Leto was named after the mother of Apollo and Artemis in Greek mythology. This scenario suits her, as she is very motherly and caring. She likes to help people out, even at the cost of her own spare time and resources.
Leto is relatively shy when it comes to meeting other people, but when she begins talking about something she likes, she becomes very animated and boisterous. When she is like this, she makes almost zero sense, and may speak in text talk.
Leto may be quiet around most people, but when she is with those she trusts, she becomes a bit more outgoing and ready to share, which is normally quite rare. She's not one to go with the crowd, and she enjoys hanging out with smaller groups of people.
Leto hasn't travelled much, living in Barfield her whole life. She used to live in West Street, with her mother and stepfather, who are very nice people, but didn't understand her shy nature. She went to live with her biological father at age 14, an artist who has a similar personality. Her brother stayed with her mother and stepfather, although they saw each other at school and every fortnight, when she stayed with her mother.
Because of her home environment being so uncomfortable, Leto began using noise to block all of it out. Originally, she tried to use music, but felt it wasn't what she wanted to be doing for a large quantity of her time. As her mother was quite distraught after she and Zeus separated, there was not a lot of cooking being done in the house. Leto enjoyed how loud cooking itself was, and how focused she had to be. This is how it became one of her hobbies, and her love. One of her other interests sprung from this, as she enjoyed reading recipe books, leaving her with a love for all reading.
Around this time is where Leto's life became quite socially orientated. She preferred to spend time with her friends than face the recently destroyed peace of her home. She didn't have a close friend, just hanging on the edges of the group that she was part of. She wasn't confident enough to break into the close 'best friend' pairs of the group, and so took what she could get. This didn't help with her already introverted traits.
The part of her that loved painting sprung from her good relationship with her father. He liked to spend time with her, teaching her how to blend colours, design different artworks, and many other art related things. Another reason she enjoys panting because it's one of the first good memories of relating to her father. The other earlier ones are mainly comforting him after the arguments that he and Mia (her mother) engaged in.
When Leto went to high school (Barfield High), she and her brother became very close. They decided when they both moved out of home, they would move in to a shared house. When they decided this, Zeus (their biological father) began to save up for them. He and Apollo got very close, leaving Leto to become closer to her mother and her stepfather.
When Leto became closer to her mother, she ended up spending more time with Johnathan (her stepfather), who was a very sporty, bloke-y, type. Realising Leto was a very shy person, he began to spend less time criticising her, and more time finding out her interests (painting, reading, cooking), and supporting her in them. Now, Leto has a very good connection with both of her fathers, step and biological, but not so good with her mother, who is an extreme socialite.
This 'extreme socialite' part of her mother is what ended up splitting Mia and Zeus. They were never married, but were engaged to be so. Zeus' life never really worked with the gossipy, friendship group style of life that Mia had. Jonathan, with his male version of this life, suited Mia perfectly.
In the future, Leto wants to be a chef, in a restaurant. She doesn't want to own a restaurant, as that would involve too much interaction with strangers. She thinks it would be fun to work with other people in such a close, trust based, and environment
Apollo Jackson (Brother), Mia Matthews (Mother), Johnathan Matthews (Stepfather), Zeus Jackson (Father).
Leto thinks she may need glasses, but will probably not get it checked out.
