Interdimensional Detective (major character)
Her name is occasionally shortened to Cy, but generally people just call her Cyrus. Her last name is pronounced "hek-a-tee", as in the Greek goddess.
Female (she/her, cisgender)
4' 11" (150 cm)
Short and curly
Short, curvy and stocky.
She often sews her own clothes and dresses as if she's a fifties socialite. Lots of brightly patterned dresses with petticoats, pearl necklaces and animal brooches, short white gloves, etc.
Swears a lot. Says "fuck" about every other sentence.
Very animated and bouncy; constantly moving about and fidgeting.
Very physically affectionate with her friends; likes giving hugs and that sort of thing.
To put it simply, she’s an adrenaline junkie. Always looking for another adventure. She has also some other plot-related motivations, but those have been redacted for the safety of the public.
She’s generally strong and independent, but she's surprisingly clingy with the people she cares about if she feels she has a need to be. She’s secretly afraid of getting left behind, even though she's the one normally doing the leaving behind.
She doesn't take anything completely seriously as a coping mechanism.
Observant of others, but not very aware of herself. You’d have to outright tell her if she crossed a line; she wouldn’t realize otherwise.
She can be pretty obnoxious sometimes. She's very extroverted, and sometimes her presence is overwhelming.
She’s prejudiced towards authority. Politicians, policemen, company CEOs, whatever. She feels like all of them think they’re better than her (not necessarily her specifically, but people like her).
She's very logically and interpersonally intelligent, which makes her a very good detective (but she doesn’t have an ounce of common sense in her body).
Good romantic radar. She usually can figure out pretty fast if one of her friends has a crush on another.
She sure comes up with creative ways to swear.

Cyrus is loud and kind of obnoxious. ESTP personality type.
Very protective of and loyal to her friends, and gets attached to people easily. She would absolutely take a bullet for someone she’s known for two weeks.
She doesn't give a fuck about "professionalism" or "standards." She can and will show up to a crime scene looking like a walking Hot Topic.
Very confident. She can have such a commanding presence when she wants, people don't often question her aforementioned lack of professionalism.
She has a strong moral compass, but following the law certainly isn’t on it.
Generally fun to be around, but can be a little overwhelming to more introverted people.
Thrives on dad jokes and bad puns.
She may not seem like a good role model, but she's quite protective of Quill and tries her best to lead her on the right path.
You’ve heard of the mom friend. Cyrus is the dad friend, if your dad was a punk lesbian. She cares a lot about her friends, and she shows it, albeit alternating caring with sarcastic insults. With a lot of her friends her way of showing friendship is by insulting them.
Always has candy and gum (that she's actually willing to share!!!) in her purse.
She can and will flirt with any woman who might flirt back at her, but isn’t looking for a real relationship.
She gets on average five hours a sleep a night and yet is constantly full of energy. She doesn't even drink caffeine. Please tell me your secrets
Did very well in school and has a degree in criminal justice.
She avoids talking about her family or childhood. When she does mention family members or shares anecdotes about them, it's clear she still very much cares about them; why she completely cut herself off from them is a mystery. She moved from...wherever it was she lived before to Colorado for college and met her now best friendthere. After graduating, they started a PI agency together.
