Characters in Costume Challenge - Hayli

This month I'm participating in Of Battles, Swords and Dragons of Adamant's Characters in Costume Challenge!

Hayli is from my futuristic science-fiction series, Subsapien. She is the passed lover of one of my main characters named Bryce. Though she is gone, she is in Bryce's mind all the time and in a couple flashbacks in the series. She is also the only character I have that actually looks like me. Don't worry. The scratches are just paint. ;)

Hayli grew up in a laboratory with Bryce where her DNA was grafted with a cheetah's giving her a tail, cheetah spots and many abilities (just imagine them ;) ). She had no parents so Bryce and Hayli protected each other and Bryce's younger brother, Matt. She always dreamed of going outside of the laboratory and being able to touch long grass and flowers.

Since she was in a bad situation, she had to hold her own against other graftings when Bryce wasn't around hence the scratches. The cruel conditions don't allow her to shower and her only clothes are standard issue hospital pants and a L.G.R. t-shirt. 

Bryce's memories of her keep him going. She always believe and encouraged him to fulfill his dreams. They planned to one day leave their prison and marry, but a sad turn of events stopped their plans. 

Thank you Gillian for letting me participate in this challenge! :)
