Name: Trinity “C.C.” Vargas
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Standing at a considerable height of 5'7”, Trinity's figure is quite slim for her age. While she is Afro-Latin, her Earth-Yellow skin makes her the lightest of the Four Vargas Siblings. One thing Vargas siblings have that stands out are their brown smoky eyes, which Trinity also contains. While her charcoal hair flows down to her chest area, Trinity likes to keep it full, so it can blow in the wind. Her sense of clothing is much more relaxed, or considered “acceptable” in today's society.
Personality: Don't let Trinity's serene beauty fool you. She does have an edge for ambition and rebellion, or at least she likes guys with a sense for that. Trinity's settling fashion sense breaks through the labeling system that society gives towards artists. She may like nice clothes, but clothes don't make her an artist; her talent does. Either way, she does have to wear something “spray paint” safe. As further stated, Trinity has a small flirtatious bone in her body. According to her, she has interest in guys that have all, or either of, the “3 Cs”: chivalry, charisma, and ,the usual, confidence. Not sure why she has such fascination in them, but she figured that living near the streets gave some sort of factor to it. Trinity can be honest and witty towards people when she wants to be. Living in Brooklyn has given her some street antics, and also some street smarts.
Skills/Specialties: When it comes to art, Trinity has a keen eye for animation, and caricatures. She likes to add her own girly or exaggerated whirl to something that would seem so normal. It's more than just traditional graffiti that her work is contrived off. There is also bubble letters, bright luscious colors, “cartooned” animals, and curvacious figures. Her biggest inspiration is Tex Avery's Red Hot Riding Hood, which is shown in the females that she draws, or paints.

Quirks: After every meal, Trinity has her favorite snack during the day; Chewing Gum. Her parents comment at how strong her teeth may be to keep chewing gum and not injure them, but her response is usually “Better that than chewing the butt off of a cigarette”. Her favorite bubble gum flavor is Cotton Candy, which is the meaning of her nickname “C.C.”. Besides her artistic ability and sense of fashion, Trinity also knows how to whistle, learning from her mother. People reference that Trinity sounds like something from a Western movie. There is one dislike that she has, and that is houseflies. Just seeing one that pass her by, makes her want to either swat at it, or kill it, especially when it is in her dorm room.
History: During the blooming season of Spring, An Afro Cuban construction worker and a Puerto-Rican nurse gave birth to their 3rd child of 4 in the rural area of Brooklyn in New York City. Living in the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, family income in the Vargas household wasn't as sufficient as it seemed. She spent most of her childhood years watching Looney Tones and Tex Avery cartoons, as well as arguing with her older brothers, Jose and Tomas, and the youngest sibling, Tristan. The moment Trinity saw her favorite character, “Red Hot Riding Hood”, on television, it was time for her brothers to hush so she could watch it. Just watching the character on television inspired Trinity to fuse this into the creative world of her own.
Her experience with graffiti came from her eldest brother, Jose, who originally had the shoes that she wears (figuratively). At the age of 10, a walk in the neighborhood with her brother had her witness him spraying graffiti, and also exploring other designs around her. This fascinated her so much, that she wanted to follow his creative skill, but put it in her own way. That same year, however, her brother was taken to the police office for defacing public property. Everyone was aware of the incident, except Trinity and the youngest, so Trinity's desire for street art was still active.
From middle school to now, she based her exhibits on the city-wide street art displaying on the outside of buildings. While teachers weren't pleased, because it was primarily “graffiti”, peers actually complimented them because it was something that they could relate to.
Graduating from her local public school, Boys and Girls High School, she dreamed on wanting to expand her art.
Romantic Interests: There is no one in particular that she is romantically involved with, but she willing to mingle.
Opinion: “Since when did expressing one's self resort to such gritty violence? The second I spill a drop of paint on the concrete, I get shot at. This is the N.Y.C., where art is active and alive in full form, but instead the artists end up dead. What kind of shit is that?”
Weapon(s): She carries no weapons, as she does not believe in physical violence.
Other: Trinity studies in the Global Liberal Studies (GLS) program, and minors in Art Studio, at New York University.
