Create a family! (with a twist!) 💮


[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_u]Clare[/name_u] [name_u]Baker[/name_u] [26] and [name_f]Acacia[/name_f] [name_u]River[/name_u] Baker-Barr [11mos] are the lead vocalist of 115% Sasquatch and her daughter. [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] is a friend of [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] and they actually go pretty far back. While there’s an age gap between them their older siblings are a few weeks apart and where in the same grade in school as well as friends so through them [name_f]Eve[/name_f] and [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] started their connection, though they didn’t become friends until they were much older and out of high school. Though they reconnected online once their respective bands started getting their own attention.

As you can guess from her looks and the name she chose for her baby, she’s very outdoor oriented, spiritual, and essentially a quintessential ‘hippie’ but it’s a label she happily uses. However her alternative outlooks are within reason and she’s not an extremist, instead believing in the happy middle point where her crunchy views meet with modern ones in harmony. She uses essential oils for headaches but antibiotics for infections. She’s not opposed to modern medicine, in fact her partner, who uses he/they pronouns, is a doctor!

Her band was formed shortly out of college with some other friends who also love crystals and hiking like she does, their sound is a sort of Mumford and Sons meets [name_u]Florence[/name_u] and the Machine style with the occasional badass guitar riff in their songs. Her and her bandmates love to keep the atmosphere relaxed in contrast to the issues that Frenemy has been having, [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] has said before and maintains that any member is welcome in 115% Sasquatch is they think the tension is too much. She’s given [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] her advice on the whole Eiko and [name_u]Riley[/name_u] situation, and she feels awful for him and [name_f]Sereia[/name_f] to be caught in the middle. [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] knows a fair bit about how [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] feels as the mediator as she’s the middle of three daughters herself. Family and other relationships are very important to her and she’s hopeful that a happy conclusion can be met among the Frenemy bandmates.

While generally Genevieve’s life is pretty relaxed she faced some hectic times last year. She and the band were in the middle of a tour, mostly playing bars and summer park barbeques, nothing major, that was supposed to last a year when she found out she was pregnant. After talking to her partner who was back home they came to the conclusion that she would continue touring since it was so important to her and the band, with her partner periodically coming out to visit certain stops as planned, as long as she could. [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] ended up touring until she was just about nine months pregnant with the tour concluding just six days before she gave birth to [name_f]Acacia[/name_f]. Now her baby girl has a love for music and is favored among the other members as ‘the cutest little groupie’

[name_f]Isabella[/name_f] “Bella” Georgia-Rose [name_u]Baker[/name_u] [18] is Genevieve’s younger sister and Acacia’s aunt. She and [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] are very close despite their age gap. She briefly toured with her sister’s band 115% Sasquatch as an opening act under the name [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f], as she wishes to follow in her sister’s footsteps and become a professional singer. She’s also a big fan of Frenemy, especially Eiko Matsuura, and sees them as a major musical influence. [name_f]Bella[/name_f] is a senior in high school and will graduate this spring. Alongside music, she is interested in [name_f]Marine[/name_f] Biology and is on the softball team at school, where she is co-captain.

She had just been accepted to [name_u]Berklee[/name_u] to study songwriting when she found out that she was three months pregnant with her ex’s baby, putting her dream on hold. She decided to keep the baby, but doesn’t know how to tell her family and fears that being a teen mom will keep her from her dreams.

Bella’s relationship with her parents isn’t great and she doesn’t wish for them to have any role in her unborn child’s life. Since she broke up with her boyfriend, she got a new girlfriend and is excited to begin raising her child with her. The people who she has told about her pregnancy are her girlfriend and her sister [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], as she knows that her secret will be safe with them. She is also very close to her niece [name_f]Acacia[/name_f], and babysits her often when [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] has plans.

cw: anxiety

[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] " [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] " [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] Brackett (18) is Bella’s girlfriend and fellow musician, albeit she hasn’t gotten quite on the level of performing with 115% sasquatch. [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] actually favours jazz and orchestral performance sounds, playing both violin and saxophone, interests unsurprising within her family, as her great-uncle belonged to a successful blues band. She’s not attached to any particular group currently, but admits she prefers life that way, performing with a variety of different musicians across a wider network, getting to experiment and network frequently. Thanks to her struggles with anxiety, [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] isn’t attending college herself - which is actually how she met [name_f]Bella[/name_f], thanks to them being asked to be at the same meetings with their school’s careers adviser - and she’ll be working at her older sister’s bridal boutique; nothing front facing [she couldn’t bare or handle that pressure], instead taking over the accounting, taking pressure off her siblings, who not only has demanding clients to handle, but also a toddler daughter of her own to take care of when she goes home when Caylee’s brother-in-law is called out for his shift as a firefighter.

Some people questioned this choice, as she has all the credentials to pursue academia - with mathematics especially being pointed out as a gift [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] possess - but she hasn’t let any of the questions phase her, given the strain it will put on her mental health [something exams alone caused problems for]. What [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] is worried about is her families feelings on the situation regarding the pregnancy. It’s not that her parents are like the Baker’s and relentlessly unreasonable people, what Caylee’s anticipating is their questions about the longevity of her relationship with [name_f]Bella[/name_f] and the responsibility, pressure and consequences raising a child involves - as it will be a concern of their’s given how young she is as well.

Her sister’s 8 years her senior and the adjustment to parenting has been a not always simple learning curve, so [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] admits to herself it’s intimidating considering how much she wants to be there for [name_f]Bella[/name_f] and the baby, especially with how unfairly her girlfriend’s been treated. [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] did actually know the ex in question fairly well, as they were both considered rising stars in the maths department of their high school, and his reaction to the conception shocked her, as he never seemed the sort of person to be so selfish and unreasonable [but then again, Caylee’s trying to prepare herself for bad behaviour, bridezilla’s and all who she’ll work in close proximity to]. [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] is someone she’s primarily asked questions of - as she doesn’t want to spill Bella’s secret to her family until permission’s granted, meaning Caylee’s own sister’s off limits - and spending time with little [name_f]Acacia[/name_f] has allowed her confidence to blossom considerably. Still, [name_f]Caylee[/name_f] refuses to be naive about the future, in spite of her nerves going forwards.
