Personality:
Gentle | Amusing | Determined | Flirtatious | Selfless
Erika is very confident in herself, she doesn't let anyone else put her down. She's very charismatic, but sometimes she doesn't say the right things and the right time. She hates hurting other's feelings and will apologize often even if she didn't do anything. She is easily distracted with her ADHD and tends to zone out of conversations. The ADHD also helps her with her swimming, giving her extra boosts of energy which is helpful during competitions.

Her borderline personality disorder is probably the worst attribute of Erika. She's either extremely proud of herself, or loathes herself entirely. She was officially diagnosed with this when she turned 18, and struggles to deal with it. Being very social, she loves being around her friends and will do anything for them. Erika is willing to risk her life to save those that she cares about, one of the main reasons why she is a lifeguard.

Hometown: Marysville, Florida.
History: Erika Gina Harmon was born on August 17th to Jackson Harmon, a city council member, and Elise Harmon, who died six months after she was born in a car crash. Jackson took the loss seriously and cherished the girl, since she was the closest thing he had to Elise. He immediately put her in programs that would increase her intelligence. Once Erika was put in Elementary school, she started getting bullied because she didn't have a mother. Jackson, wanting his daughter to feel better, married another woman.

In reality, that made Erika even more upset. She didn't want another mother in her life. From that point on, Erika grew distant from her father. When she was fourteen, Erika found herself in a horrible place. The social worker at school told her that she may have some mental problems. She flat out rejected the idea and self harmed that night. Her father found out and wanted to send her to an inpatient program. Erika and her step-mother refused to allow that to happen. To please her father, she decided to get better on her own.

She joined the high school swim team in her freshman year and was the fastest freshman on the team. She was immediately promoted to varsity and broke several state records in freestyle throughout high school. She received a scholarship to attend Yale, and attended four years. She received a degree in Psychology and returned to her hometown. There was no jobs open for a therapist, so she took on the role of a lifeguard for the summer until she could get a better job.
