ENERGY LEVEL: Depending on the given situation she tries to remain quiet unless it is very important and if she works herself up enough she is not afraid to speak her mind.
MOVEMENT: In an important heated conversation, she is direct, but only when she needs something. When she is being pressured by her uncle, she is quieter about it. She moves in a way that gets her out of the situation without hurting anyone’s feelings.
SUPER OBJECTIVE: To get him out of her life
TYPE: (EG. MISERLY, HUMORLESS, HOT-TEMPERED, LAZY, COY, ETC.): Hot-tempered when she has to be, but also very conscious. She does not want to hurt anyone’s feelings because she knows how that feels coming from the way the rest of her family treats her.
NEEDS AND WANTS: She needs him out of her life, but she also needs someone in her life that supports her. She wants to go to school to learn and not have to worry about being sent letters and gifts from her uncle that has been in the back of her head for all this time. She wants her family to stop picking on...
References: LIKES, DISLIKES, BUTTONS): A button of hers later in the show is when Peck says that he can’t live without her. This is a point for her when all hope of letting him down gently is lost and she has to get through to him. She dislikes the fact that Peck does not pick up on all of the hints she lays right in front of him. She doesn’t respond to his letters and tells him not to send anymore, yet he does not get the picture. She has a taste for knowledge, she wants to be bigger than her family was and go to school to do all the things her family hasn’t.
IDIOSYNCRASIES: She has the tendency to close off at first to an uncomfortable situations, but after the happening moves through her head and she gives it a good thought, she then speaks up.
SOCIAL AND ETHICAL VALUES: She knows that what Peck has been doing to her for all these years is not right, but she needs that support system in her life that the rest of her family is not providing her with. She knows that her uncle is married to her aunt and that they should be in love and that should be enough for him, but she wants so badly to help him. To help him out of his drinking and back in love with his aunt, but she doesn’t have the means to do that.
ACTIONS THESE INSPIRE: The inner struggle of how to handle her relationship with Peck sparks from these values that she has and the family situation that she grew up in. Her family has not been supportive of her so she turns to the only person who will listen to her, which is Peck, who happens to want something from her in return.
METAPHORS: (ANIMALS, COLOR, WEATHER, MUSIC, ETC): A metaphor for Lil Bit would be
ENTRANCES AND EXITS: (WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? WHERE ARE YOU GOING?) She comes from a family that was not supportive in the slightest. All she had when it came to support was her uncle. He, however, had a different relationship in mind. Lil Bit lives among Peck, who has fallen in love with her and is making every effort to spend the rest of his life with her. She finally breaks out of this cycle when she comes back from school, telling him that she can’t see him anymore. She is going down a road of recovery, one would hope. Although it will take her years to live freely without the reflection of her uncle in the rearview mirror, it doesn’t mean that she can’t start now. She is hopefully going to a place of emotional freedom and healthy relationships.
