One might think with just a mere glance that this is a timid, sweet little girl, and you know what, you'd be right! After meeting her you would add many many more colorful descriptions to that list!
You see, Hazel is an orphan, and actually lives under the 9th street bridge, there with her few friends. They all call her Hazel the lionhearted. She was given this nickname when she was just a wee toddler, living in the orphanage with the nuns. Born to a very young mother, she was given up at birth because she was born with a heart defect, and her young mother knew she could not care for the sickly child. The Nuns gladly took her in, and named her Hazel, after Sister Mary Hazel. The lionheart nickname came about from a tall tale one of the nuns told little Hazel about her heart. Now one might think, "oh surely a nun would never tell a tale, or untruth!" but in fact, that is exactly what happened. Hazel was given a heart transplant at just three years old, and had many questions about the huge scar that graced her tiny torso. So the story was told that she in fact would grow up to be a leader, a fierce, brave young woman who would do great things, because she was given the heart of a lion cub! Hazel has always known this was in fact, the truth..just look at her hair! How else could a human girl aquire such unruly hair, that is just like a lions mane? It was beacuse she had the heart of a lion! After a few short years,at only the young age of eight, Hazel decided that she should in fact be a leader, one of her own destiny, and she ran away from the orphanage, to help her friends who were homeless, and lived under the 9th street bridge, just a stones throw from the border of Nowhere, but until now, a complete world away.
