Female | 24 | Lesbian |
Ghanaian Australian | 185cm |
DOB: Jun 18

Jaden has just moved out of home for the first time, and is doing her best to settle into her position as a bouncer at the lesbian bar, Yonique. She is kind, and friendly, but doesn’t always know how to react when she’s on the receiving end of those qualities. She also has a habit of dwelling on her failures, and being selfless to her own detriment. Jaden isn’t sure she’ll ever get back in the dating game again.

Female | 26 | Lesbian |
Biracial Chinese/White | 155cm |
DOB: Oct 25

Riley is a very cautious woman, who is always quick to accommodate others so she can avoid conflict. She works at JO-BLO’s Home Variety with her girlfriend Blaire. Blaire is the person Riley is most cautious around, as she isn’t sure how to feel about some of Blaire’s stronger beliefs. Riley only truly lets her guard down around her rescue cat, Muddles.

Female | 24 | Bisexual |
Anglo Australian | 168cm |
DOB: Jan 2

Blaire is a passionate, bubbly woman, who always strives to do what she believes is right… Even if not everyone else agrees. Blaire is an assistant manager at JO-BLO’s Home Variety, and is currently training under her aunt to become a fully-fledged manager. Blaire is studying cosmetology and is an active member of her university’s LGBTQIA+ club. She would be incredibly upset to know Riley isn’t 100% supportive of her stronger beliefs.

Female | 6 | Lesbian |
Domestic Long-hair | 25cm |
DOB: Mar 14

Muddles was a stray before meeting Riley, and tends to shy away from people at first – especially men. She enjoys sitting in boxes, purring loudly late at night, and occupying the laps of those she trusts.

YONIQUE STAFF

Female | 75 | Lesbian |
Anglo Australian | 163cm |
DOB: May 12

Ruth is stern, stubborn and blunt, but also very loyal to the women she cares about. She built her club, Yonique, to be able to dance safely with her late-wife. To this day, she continues to host ballroom dancing lessons for women, and also holds an annual Masquerade Ball.
In the club’s formative years, Ruth acted as Yonique’s bouncer. Despite this often leading to her injury, it took a long time before she was ready to pass the torch to another woman.

Nickname: Nelly
Female | 61 | Lesbian |
Anglo Australian | 157cm |
DOB: Dec 30

Nelly is Yonique’s medical officer, and a qualified Registered Nurse. She also teaches first aid to staff. Nelly met Ruth in the E.R. when Ruth had sustained injuries keeping men out of Yonique. After Ruth’s third visit to the E.R in the span of a month, Nelly knew she was sorely needed on the team.
Outside of work, Nelly enjoys a quiet, single life with her dog Luca.

Female | 27 | Bisexual |
Papua New Guinean Australian |
165cm | DOB: Jan 8

Violet has been Yonique‘s bartender for the past 9 years, working there for 10. She’s very easy going, and well-liked by both staff and patrons. Despite receiving a lot of romantic attention from patrons, Violet has chosen to remain single until her daughter, Faith, is in high school. Violet often feels insecure about her parenting decisions because she had Faith at a young age. She and Faith live with Ruth, who Violet often goes to for guidance.

Female | 10 | Lesbian |
Papua New Guinean Australian |
134cm | DOB: Feb 5

Faith is a lively young tomboy who loves talking about her favourite books and video games to anyone who will listen (sometimes even those who won’t!). Faith was born in the Yonique building, and has a very strong connection with Ruth. She sees her and most of the other staff like aunts, except Jaden, who she has developed a baby-lesbian crush on.

Nickname: Shez
Female | 31 | Lesbian |
Malayasian Australian |
160cm | DOB: Sept 5

Shez is Yonique’s head bouncer, and also runs Women’s Self Defence classes during the day. She’s highly affectionate and outgoing, but still very aware of those around her. Shez knows when quiet maturity is needed, but has also learned when it is violence that is necessary.
Shez lives with her mother, 3 younger sisters, and her girlfriend, Parniya.

Female | 27 | Lesbian |
Iranian Australian | 196cm |
DOB: April 5

Parniya takes her job as a bouncer very seriously to the point she comes off as stoic, and intimidating. This isn’t helped by her towering height, which is something she is deeply self-conscious about. Because of this she doesn’t interact with a lot of Yonique’s staff, unless Shez is also present. When she is off the clock, those who know her get to see a softer, goofier side of Parniya.

Female | 21 | Lesbian |
Australian Ashkenazi Jewish |
160cm | DOB: Dec 23

Ari is Yonique’s DJ and manages the club’s social medial presence. She is a loud, boisterous woman with a juvenile sense of humour and an affinity for giving bear hugs to her beloved co-workers. Ari is also a huge show-off with the musical talent to back up her ego. She can play twelve instruments (and counting), some simultaneously, most while singing. More recently, Ari has begun filling the role of an Opening Act for bands that play at Yonique. She also plays piano for Yonique’s Ballroom Nights.

FAMILY MEMBERS

Nickname: Josie
Female | 48 | Straight |
Ghanaian | 166cm |
DOB: Sept 9

Josie is Jaden’s mother. She is well acquainted with self-sacrifice, and has worked hard to make sure her children have more opportunities than she got herself. While originally intending to live as a housewife, Josie was forced to work after the death of her husband, Jacobus. She now works in the aged-care industry in an admin position. In addition to her teenage son, Jacob, Josie is also responsible for her mother, Julia, who now lives with dementia. Because of this her social circle is quite small.

Legal Name: Julia Duah
Female | 72 | Straight |
Ghanaian | 153cm |
DOB: Sept 20

Nana is Josie’s mother, and Jaden and Jacob’s maternal grandmother. She is fiercely loyal to her family, and is never afraid to jump to defend them – even when they’d rather she didn’t. In her working years, Nana sold handmade clothing and jewelry, while her late-husband worked as a pastor. Nana is retired now and lives with dementia. However, her fiery spirit, passion for sewing and textiles, and the bitter feelings she holds for Josie’s mother-in-law often resurface in glimpses.

Male | Died at 35 |
Straight | Ghanaian | 190cm |
DOB: May 29

Jacobus was married to Josie, and is the father of Jaden and Jacob. He passed away from an illness that doctors were unable to identify or treat. In life, he was a decent father and husband. Jacobus worked in an office job to financially support his family, but enjoyed his weekend position as an auxiliary firefighter much more.

Male | 16 | Straight |
Ghanaian Australian | 192cm |
DOB: May 15

Jacob is Jaden’s younger brother. He’s an 11th grader in high school, but has little interest in any of his subjects besides Drama. Jacob has a very hands-off approach to conflict, and finds it difficult to get invested in the struggles of others. At school this serves him well and he is well-liked by most of his peers, but at home he holes himself up in his room most of the time to stay out of the way of arguments. After high school he plans to pursue a career in acting.

Meriam works in a small bakery, and also volunteers as Shez’s Self-Defence Class assistant from time to time. When she’s not working, Meriam enjoys water aerobics and taking bushwalks with her friends. After escaping her ex, Meriam gave their shared daughters three different surnames to make it harder for him to search for them.

Nickname: Rocky
Female | 22 | Straight |
Biracial Malaysian/White | 168cm |
DOB: Oct 16

Rocky deeply admires her older sister, Shez, and longs to be as confident and outgoing as her. She keeps her hair short and regularly strength trains, but has been left both mute, and fearful of anyone she doesn’t know – especially men – by the events in her past.
Her distrust of men and her lack of interest in dating in general, has caused a rift between Rocky and her younger sisters. Rocky has found some peace working with horses as a stable-hand at a small riding club.

Nickname: Rissa
Female | 21 | Straight
Biracial Malaysian/White | 170cm |
DOB: Oct 26

Rissa is Shez’s second youngest sister.
She is generally bubbly, outgoing and slow to anger, but has recently found herself butting heads with Meriam and Shez over the permanent ban of men in their shared home.
Rissa doesn’t want to let the events from her past define her, and is desperate to prove her current boyfriend is worthy of exemption from the house rule.
She is deeply hurt by her family’s unwillingness to budge, taking their disinterest and distrust of him as a reflection of how they see her.
Rissa is a receptionist at the medical practise where her boyfriend works as a doctor.

Nickname: Tina
Female | 17 | Straight
Biracial Malaysian/White | 165cm |
DOB: Feb 28

Tina is Shez’s youngest sister. While much less confrontational than Rissa, she also dislikes the no-man house rule. Outside of school, Tina loves losing herself in romance novels and hopes to one day meet her prince charming. She idolises her older sister Rissa, and goes to her for advice on boys, as well as offering her own shoulder for Rissa to cry on after fights with their mother. Tina wants to pursue a career as a romance author after she graduates, and is already drafting her first novel.

She uses her online relationship with another straight woman who calls herself nonbinary as proof of this.

Tiffany refers to women without gender identities as “cis bitches” and refuses to speak to them directly. Her friend and roommate, Martha-Jane, acts as her primary go-between if communication with women is absolutely necessary. She is open to talking others, but is shy and soft-spoken around new people until she gets to know them.

Clancy only recently gained the courage to come out as a lesbian. Soon after, she began attending QT Collective meetings in the hopes of finding other lesbian friends (and maybe a girlfriend). She was horrified to learn from her peers just how many ways there are to be discriminatory while dating as a lesbian, and, how many she fit the criteria for. She was quick to adopt a gender identity to avoid criticism for her exclusive attraction to women.
Clancy is studying to become a primary school PE teacher. She is very passionate about staying active, and hopes to share that with the children she teaches.
On weekends, she plays soccer at a local women’s soccer club called The Ball Kickers.
