Kelly Takahashi

Another character from Tweens, (cousin of Jack and Jace and sister of Jason, Jake) Kelly was one of the favorites that I had imagined.

She is a sweet girl who is kind to most people, though she’s not without flaws, in that she is ditzy and clumsy.  She often causes problem for her friends, but nonetheless is always tried her best to do the right thing.

Eventhough I lost interest in Tweens, I did use some elements of Kelly in other characters.  Riley Diamond is based on her personality, sweet ditzy, and engaging, but Riley is also far more weirder and has more quirks than Kelly does.  Also, I decided put some of Kelly’s clumsiness in the character of Luna Santiago, but on a far larger scale, making Kelly look graceful in comparison.

Jack, Jace, Jason, Jake, and Javier

Jack and Jace Takahashi are two characters from Tweens.  As twins, their personalities are as different as their appearances are as identical.  Jack is the mild-mannered, straight-laced twin.  Jace is the brash, somewhat rebellious twin.

Jason Takahashi, a first cousin of Jack and Jace.  He is the nerdy type who relies on intelligence rather than superficiality so to speak.

Jake, Jason younger brother.  A trickster, and obsessed with annoying children who are older than him, including siblings and cousins.

Javier Rodriguez is Adriana’s older brother.  A jock, he is rather arrogant, and takes that out on his siblings, though  like many siblings’ that’s how he shows he cares.

Brenda Menard

This was one of my favorite characters from Tweens which was the precursor to Carol, Adriana, and Keisha.

Brenda is many things.  She is stylish.  She is charismatic.  She is mean.  But also, she is loyal, helpful, and ultimately a good friend.

I created her as the leader of her group and something of a “mean girl”.  While frequently a jerk to people and even her friends, she still has a heart of gold deep down.

Brenda also can be jealous and competitive.  In fact, I created Carol to be a rival to her.  They competed in every aspect, the cheerleading team, in social situations, anything you can think of.  However at times, they did unite for a common goal. One episode I imagined in my head consisted of Brenda and Carol working together to take a stand against being  rejected from the cheerleading squad due to being in the sixth grade, with only seventh and eight graders being given a fair chance.

All in all, Brenda was one of my favorites due to her brashness and due to having heart.
