HISTORY: Odessa was born Lawrence Rodrigo Tona, but never actually felt… right. No matter how Odessa tried, trying to be a male just never worked for her. She felt most at home in a skirt, and never particularly cared for any of the things that were deemed “masculine.”
Odessa felt this way from an early age and, along with two very supportive parents adopted a life style that suited her better. Her parents loved her regardless, she was their only child and their entire world, they would do anything to make her feel happy and comfortable in her own skin. Unfortunately, the school she went to was not nearly as progressive.
At school she felt like an outcast, people would tease her and bully her because she did not conform to their views and ideals about how she should live her life. For years she suffered in silence, afraid of what her parents would say if they found out she was being bullied. She said nothing until they day she was sent home from school because she chose to defend herself instead of being walked on any longer.
From that day forward she was pulled into homeschooling, but she felt very lonely. She was naturally very social, but in her neighborhood she was in a sort of void. All the other kids were either too old to want to play near her, or too young to want to.
She eventually got used to being alone, but she got involved in several different groups and clubs that were not in schools. She found a love of sewing, to do something to keep her hands from being idle.
While at one of her groups she found a flyer advertising a school program that would allow her to move to a small town. With her parents support she took off for a new adventure.
