hi im Shanti’s artist! i guess its pretty obvious who i am, but i’ll still try to remain anon for those who dont know.
Shanti does a lot of charity work and help out children simply because that was her background! she comes from an area where if children are not taught skills that can allow them to make a living, they’d be trafficked for money. i did try to make that obvious in “real life inspiration” part - guess it wasnt so. Shanti managed to escape the traffic pool pretty quick, but she knows not everyone is so lucky. note that she only teaches homeless kids? i wished to write trafficked kids actually, but i didnt know if that was crossing any boundaries of a PG13 site.
anyway i guess it does kind of look like a “perfect personality”, but honestly, she just knows how terrible it was to be sold, and doesnt want it to keep going on. whether or not you still think its pandering is fine, but i do hope the reason why has been cleared up!
