tell me reality is better than a dream.
Being a usagi, Greta's most noticeable and prominant features are the two large ears on her head, sprouting upwards and being about the same size as her forearm, the two ears are covered in soft fur that matches the colour of Greta's hair. Her hair is chocolate brown in colour, and falls to just above her thighs, very often it gets tangled and messy but don't worry, Greta always has detangling spray on hand for a quick getaway!
Great stands at 5'2" and weights 54kg, with a slightly hourglass figure. She absolutely adores modern fashion trends and can most often than not find her in oversized instagram coats and trying out all sorts of accesories that she found online to try bring better attention to herself.

You know what sucked? Mothers who really shouldn't be mothers.
Greta has always felt second best, both in terms of life and in comparison to her step-brother. Born second, to Mina Tashiro's on and off again sleazebag boyfriend Sam, she struggled to find her place in the family. As a small toddler her mothers attentions would often be off trying to keep her boyfriend from leaving again, which left Greta to be taken care of by her slightly older step-brother, Fuji Tashiro.
Greta can't be certain what went through Fuji's mind, perhaps it was the sudden stress of being forced to raise somebody he was hardly attatched to, or the sibling annoyance that comes with a new member of the family, but he spent very little time actually caring for her. More often than not Greta was given a tablet to play away on or sat infront of the TV while he went onwards to play with friends, and Mina was oblivious.
As she got older, Greta grew easily bored of the screens she was forced with, her attention belonging to her older brother, who she'd cry at until she got her way. Days were spent following him around the neighbourhood, watching him play in the streets with his friends while she sat on the sidewalk,grin permanantly etched on her features as she admired Fuji and how good he was at things.
He perhaps saw this as an opportunity. Infront of Mina, Fuji and Greta were the perfect siblings, however as soon as she left Fuji would spend his time bossing Greta around, having her pick up after him and build him huge lego mansions and castles, and then promptly knock them down because they were never good enough for his figurine to live in.
Greta didn't know any better, and would blindly do what he said, just to impress him. he was her big brother, after all! This, though, once resulted in an unfortunate visit to the hospital when a piece of lego, during one such building session, got lodged in Greta's ear. Her hearing in her left ear has never quite been right since, but it's super fine!
Going into school, Greta struggled properly understanding a lot of the basic information taught to her, and with her mother gone so often at her boyfriends house Greta had to rely on her brother for help, however as he grew older he found the young girls presence more and more of a hinderance, and simply told her he could do his work himself, so she had to do the same.
Of course, when Mina finally turned up to a teachers interview and learned about Greta's grades, and about Fuji not being able to teach her, the young girl was given a tutor. And this, is perhaps, when things get fun.
Greta viewed these tutors like they were parents, and would spend time asking them questions about their own lives rather than focus on her own work. She wouldn't take instructions from anybody but her brother, who often was called in the middle of gaming or talking to friends to tell his sister to do what the tutor said- and every time without fail she'd beam at him and try her best!
Four tutors got tired of it and quit, while one was fired for yelling at her for not paying attention. Mina was beyond frustrated, and eventually Greta's father, Sam, had to come down every sunday and help her with homework, though he really did most of the work for her and didn't seem to really wanna be there, Mina would often be lingering and promising him he'd get what he wanted if he just helped his daughter every so often.
As the years went by, Greta remained below average at school, often losing her focus or daydreaming about TV shows, or getting carried away with some of her many friends. Constantly, Fuji was called on when Greta got up to something she shouldn't be doing, like being caught shoplifting a cute beaded bracelet, or telling younger kids at the beach to build her sandcastles on to crush them because they weren't good enough! Just like her brother taught her!
He then tried to unteach her that, very very quickly.
As she became a young preteen, her adoration for her older brother turned into something more critical, as he entered highschool and spent less and less time with her. He was an academic, somebody at the top of his class who everybody looked up to!
And Greta struggled to do basic multiplication.
A friend refused to date her because they said she had a brother complex and they really weren't all for that.
She got frustrated with english homework and her brother showed up a half minute after she groaned at the paper.
Greta was becoming increaingly self-aware of all the things around her, her mothers absence, her brothers constantly moody behaviour and pushiness when it came to her. Eventually, it all came to a boiling point when she snapped at him, when he'd passed her walking home from school and practically demanded she get home and do her homework.
She'd told him she could do whatever she wanted, and that he was being an ass trying to tell her what to do all the time, that she was so sick of it and just wanted to be able to breathe. In return, he'd practically dragged her home away from her friends, before all but telling her that without him she'wouldn't have passed grade school and that she practically needed him to get by.
She shut up after that, and after calling her dad moved out to live with him in his caravan, just to prove her brother wrong. She was suuuper capable of doing things by herself!
Or... maybe not. Her dad wasn't willing to help her pay for after school tutoring or exam prep so she'd spend hours on her phone (that her brother had gotten her with his part time job a few months prior) youtubing studying techniques, but she got bored... super quick... Still, she tried, really! She just got distracted easily, by her friends coming over, by the noisy neighbours, by the smell of her dads beer, by social media...
She had to learn to cook dinner for herself, something she'd taken for granted, that and she often woke up with the blanket having been thrown off, and soon came to realise her brother must have come in every night to fix it for her. Greta wasn't reliant on him, nuh-uh!
At the very least, with help from her friends, she was able to learn one or two things and get... average marks, which was good! Her brother came to visit often, often chatising her for being messy, or for not living up to the academic excellence that Lorsette is known for. Secretly, though she'd never admit it, she looked forward to when he visited. Though, one day, he stopped. She arranged a surprise visit back to her mums place, only to find that he'd moved out. Mina informed her he'd left right after graduation and practically vanished. She wouldn't learn until lated that he'd gone to train to become part of the TRS.
Greta continued on her way of living, going between her parents houses as she pleased now her brother was busy. Her parents didn't pay much attention to her, and despite being popular she found herself missing her brother. Every few days she'd text him, little things about the days activities, letting her know something silly Mina had done, apologising.
Nothing worked in getting him to respond.
In turn, she turned to her friends, often barraging them with texts asking for help, or trying to talk to them constantly. It became a running joke within her group that she was constantly blowing up their phones and spamming them. Perhaps that's what spurred on her plan: plan make more friends and get more help!
She wasn't smart, and she knew club would suuuper distract her, unless she went into a studying club, but that also sounded far too boring. So, after shaking a magic 8 ball and listing off school activities and getting 'all signs point to yes' for asking if the school council would help, she went there, seeking out a way she'd be able to... do anything useful.
Greta had a knack for social media, having been using it from a young age and especially with her friends. She was a quick typer and texter and known for being some-what popular, and eventually she volunteered herself to be the social media representitive for the school.
It was probably one of the first times she'd seen her mum pleasantly surprised by something she did at school.
And yknow what, Greta was gonna put her all into this role! Though it was less selfies and more promoting the school itself and making it look good online, she could totally do that! And then she'd get to sit in a room full of smart people, befriend them and her road to becoming super smart would start!
Plan M.M.F.A.G.M.H was a go! Though she probably should work on the plans proper title... but tht was a step towards becomign smarter! A step towards beating her brother, and getting him to notice her! Take that, Fuji!
Greta makes up for her lack of academic ability in her texting abilities, she's been seen multitasking twelve groupchats at once, in the middle of class of all things! And sure, maybe she got yelled at for it, but it's a super special feat!
When she's sad, her ears have a tendancy to flop around rather than standing straight and upright, so it's pretty easy to tell when Greta's feeling down.
Her secret talent is lego building, as embarrasing as it might be, it was one of the only toys she had growing up and she still stubbournly works at it wanting to get better so she can impress Fuji with her skills, and her friends too!
