Tessa is feisty, wild, and independent by nature. Opposed to the general role of the lioness, Tessa refuses to ever be with someone who lays around all day while she does all of the work. Not that she’s lazy. Tessa is in fact very motivated in her goals. When Tessa believes in a goal she is all in, using everything in her arsenal to get the job done. Looks, sex appeal, bait of other kinds, blackmail, promises, whatever needs to get done. If it’s for a higher purpose in her eyes that’s all that matters to her.
She is cunning and often develops long term plans that she generally sees through flawlessly. She is competitive by nature and views shifters as the top of the food chain. Reluctantly, she can often see the useful points in many other supernatural beings, but she often perceives these gifts as a threat to herself or her own kind. She is not currently interested in romance of any kind. Although she can appreciate the physicality of a hot guy, she won’t allow herself to trust someone so blindly as most lovers do.
For a non Shifter it may take a lot of work to get past her many barriers of trust, but if you ever do get there it’s worth it. Because no one messes with Tessa’s loved ones. With so few to look out for, every single one counts. She currently trusts very few beings in this world, though that doesn’t stop her from being sociable with beings that she views as a means to an end or whom she identifies with.
Tessa may have good goals, but she is no angel. She does what she feels she has to according to her own sets of rules and morals. While she may have fears and vulnerabilities, she also has confidence, a plan, and a dominating personality that causes one to wonder why the lion is the king of the jungle, when the lioness is the one who’s truly ruling it?
