Tera A. Eileen Young (다현영) is a Korean American woman in her late 20′s- early 30′s, a mother to a daughter in her origin story and local sprout mom to her garden. Young works as a part-time florist and a first chair violinist, working at her flower shop to compensate for the lack of shows in a span of a few weeks.
- Real life inspiration
When I first created Tera, I was 14-15 ( so I had her for some time ) I was originally inspired from one my garden partners during class, she dropped a potted plant and looked like she had a mental breakdown- I don’t know why her origin plays out that I just witnessed a clumsy action but it inspired me to do something.
Another inspiration is my anxiety to be a mother, thought I can’t get pregnant due to complications that was stated when I was 18, I still worry that one day, I would need to put on my big business boy pants and settle down, but I didn’t want to due to a horrible mother I was raised with (Now we are okay, she is compensating for her mistreatment with gifts and leaving me alone) . Tera’s whole story is about her growing up after being in a horrible situation as a child.
- Act of growing up
Tera is very much of a slow burn character, each relationship that I see fits for her with another muse represents her growing up in some oddity (i.e- dates a bad person, gets a bad habit. She has grown up with weeds mentally and emotionally) but thankful for the origin story,
Tera grows up with a man from weeds to only be a pretty flower, bares his child- who later grows up to be a cop and repeats the cycle and has two sons to a loving up-and-waiting Italian mafia don’s son. So, get you a freak like that.
