Farah is a precocious and strong-willed teenager. Her parents died when she was 10, and her older brother, who became her guardian in the aftermath, went out to get food one evening and never returned. It's been a few months since then, and she's been trying to find him while fending for herself.
She's cheerful and sociable, with advanced social skills for her age. She can talk or charm her way out of most sticky situations she finds herself in. She's certainly not above turning up the cute kid factor to take advantage of people's goodwill, but she's also very assertive and has little tolerance for verbal abuse or condescension. Despite all this, she finds it difficult to talk to kids her own age; she hasn't attended school since her parents died, and she and her brother moved around too much for her to develop any meaningful relationships.
She is stubborn to a fault, and it's nearly impossible to get her to quit once she puts her mind to something. She thinks she can be successful at anything if she works hard enough, regardless of any factors out of her control. This quality combined with her poor impulse control cause her to dig herself deep into holes that she doesn't realize she's in until things go terribly wrong.
