I have a tendency to invent characters just intending to use them for a specific purpose in one, maybe two stories, and then they move into my head and never leave. I don’t remember having any special plans for Cherice. I’d already written the first issue of Misspent Youths when I started putting together the proposal. Cherice was featured in an important scene so I included her in the character list but I really didn’t know what I’d do with her after that. But, like the adventurous chick she is, she just kept showing up.
