22 (Birthday: September 3)
Mother, father, older sister, younger brother.
She is Black. Her hair is pretty short (up to her shoulders) and doesn't do anything extra to it unless she decides to style it in cornrows or in a ponytail. She's 5'2 and pretty lanky despite how thick the police uniform is. On her days off, she loves wearing fashionable outfits and going out on the town or cozying up at home with a movie or her favorite tv show.
Zuri is a bit spoiled but she's hardworking and ambitious. She's a little neurotic because she wants everything to be done as soon as possible and tends to overthink things. She's a little too sensitive towards the underdogs, especially after her time being bullied as a young girl.
When push comes to shove, Zuri will fight back. It's hard for her to back down as it is, but when she is in the fight mode, it's nearly impossible. Once she puts her mind to something, that's it!
And yet when Zuri is at home, she turns all that professionalism off and lazes about although she loves dressing up from time to time.
Zuri is the middle child of her family; she has an older sister and a younger sister. Her father is a lawyer and her mother is a doctor. Her family were like any normal family with a normal set of first world problems. Zuri and her siblings had their needs met and she is quite ambitious.
Her dream is to become a detective while her siblings wants to be either an engineer and a business person. Her parents were kind, but strict.
Despite the image of a happy home, Zuri lived in an area who were highly prejudiced against her family. Zuri would often be a victim of bullying but she would try to stand up for herself. She never liked it when her older sister, Sophia, did it for her so she learned how to fight.
She never had a real chance to use her skills (being wealthy would make certain people spoiled and lazy) but she was always prepared. Nevertheless, her parents supported her endeavors.
After high school, Zuri went straight to college and earned her Associate's degree, to her parents' dismay. Soon, she went straight to the Police Academy and became a police officer, mostly so she can save up for her Bachelor's degree as she becomes a detective.
