Name: Candice Juergens
Age: 24 years old
Occupation: Stripper at Femme
Candice always dreamed of a better life. Her father died in a car accident when she was very young, and ever since her mother was off the handle. From the time she was eight years old various men had come and gone through her mother’s bedroom. She never saw the same face twice. The only stable man she had in her life was her baby brother. She always liked to imagine that Ben was exactly like her dad, only in a young boy’s body. He was caring and quiet, and most of the time he was the one taking care of Candice rather than her taking care of him. She wanted to do her best to ensure that he never turned out like the men their mother brought home and that she never ended up like her mother. However, some things are inevitable.
Thankfully, Ben remained the sweet innocent kid he always was, but Candice turned into her worst nightmare. After her mother’s suicide, she began abusing drugs and alcohol. She was only eighteen at the time. She was fired from every job she got and her life seemed to be going nowhere. However, her brother was always there for her. He got her sober and together they somehow scraped up enough money together to buy a small apartment off the strip. They both knew they couldn’t stay in the house they grew up in. Life started looking up for Candice after that.
The job she attained wasn’t exactly ideal, but it paid and it paid well. Stripping was not something she ever wanted to do, but after screwing up her senior year of high school, it was the only opportunity she had. Though, that was the only downside to her life now. All of that, in Candice’s opinion, was thanks to Will. She knew her brother didn’t approve of her new boyfriend, but he was sweet, kind and caring. To be completely honest, he was the best thing in her life. She seemed to lose track of everything else that mattered. Her brother fell by the wayside she wasn’t spending as much time with her friends, and her old habits of drug use started to come back. However, Candice didn’t care. As long as she had Will in her life, she would be happy.
Candice is a very dependent woman. However, she seems to think otherwise. Whenever she tries to exert her independence, things never work out and she always ends up relying on others to help. She is very kind to most people, though it doesn’t take much to anger her. Once on her bad side, you’re there for life. She is very direct in what she wants out of life and blinds herself from everything but her goals. If her mind is set on something, she’ll rarely change it. All she wants to do is please others, especially men, while pleasing herself in the process.
Ben Juergens (Brother):
Ben was always there for Candice, even when she wasn’t there for herself. Growing up she always tried to take care of him she usually failed. It was something she regretted but she knew she couldn’t change the past. Even now, she can’t take care of him. Candice and Ben, when they were children were inseparable, but now the two just keep drifting apart. Sometimes, she thinks not even living in the same apartment will keep them together.
William Elliston (Boyfriend):
Candice couldn’t help but fall head over heels for Will. If his looks weren’t enough, his attitude certainly was. Truthfully, one of the main reasons Candice was so attracted to Will in the first place was how dangerous he seemed. Her friends and brother disapproving only added to that attraction. All in all, Candice wanted to be a bad girl again, and Will gave her the opportunity to do so.
Marie Waters (Best Friend):
Out of anyone she knows, even her brother, Candice thinks that Marie is the one that knows her best. As her best friend, it wasn’t something unexpected. However, for Candice, it was something huge. She hardly ever trusts anyone enough for him or her to fully get to know her, but Marie was one of those people. Hell, she was the only one of her friends that knew to keep her mouth shut on the topic of her boyfriend. That was one of the many reasons why she adores her so much.
The role of Candice Juergens is open.
