Create a Family with a Twist!


[name_f]Crystal[/name_f] [name_f]Emma[/name_f] (Lansing) DeSouza (32), pictured with her beloved [name_m]German[/name_m] [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] - and technical colleague - [name_u]Saturn[/name_u], is one of the rescuers who’s just arrived to see the survivors safely returned home. Although it isn’t always a necessity for [name_u]Saturn[/name_u] to accompany her and the crew on missions, [name_f]Crystal[/name_f] enjoys bringing her along as her presence puts people at ease more usually, given she’s such a sweet, easygoing dog. This is a unique scenario for [name_f]Crystal[/name_f] to be facing, however she’s relieved to know everyone survived the crash and that there’s less imminent danger compared to other situations her job’s brought her into.

A cool, calm and collected archetype of a rescuer, [name_f]Crystal[/name_f] does have a good sense of humour, however she knows to save it based on situations and doesn’t come in cracking jokes. Among her colleagues she does her best to keep spirits more positive, and keep them focusing on what can be salvaged opposed to any mistakes. She wasn’t inspired by a personal experience of disaster, but instead always knew she wanted to help others from a young age, considering numerous career paths before deciding to pursue rescue work thanks to her flexibility being ideal for tighter spots.

Having been involved in search and rescue extensively, Crystal’s entered more of a laidback role since the birth of her daughter 4 years ago. Her pregnancy was unplanned - her husband’s an EMT who works long hours too - but the couple adapted well to parenthood, and absolutely cherish their little girl, having plans on conceiving again in the imminent future. With her daughter, Crystals’ fun side always comes out, and they’re always going on impromptu trips to the park or visiting her mom who lives 15 minutes away. Given her experience in motherhood, she’s someone [name_f]Belinda[/name_f] knows would be ideal to ask about accessing a pregnancy test, although this has been held off while checks over everyone are being carried out to ensure nothing serious is going on.
