Who am I? Just a conscience!
Hey, howdy, hey! The name's MAGGIE, and I wished upon a star from ADS. My other imaginary friends include HAMISH/HUBERT/HARRIS, FALINE, BAGHEERA. JESSIE and I are so very eager to join the Worlds of Disney circle of life!
Character name: Jessie, the Yodeling Cowgirl
Age: Toy but looks early 20s
Species: Humanoid Toy
Birthplace: American toy factory
Movie: Toy Story 2, 3
Custom title: The Yodeling Cowgirl
Why: I have always loved the Toy Story movies and think Jessie would be interesting to take up, also to have a character who can interact with some of the smaller characters as well.
Hair description: Braided red yarn stands in for Jessie's red locks and yet it's been kept pristine through the years mainly due to her seclusion but also Jessie up keeps her appearance even through the years in Andy's room and then Bonnie.
Facial description/mood/expressions: Going beyond the fact that a smile was painted on the cowgirl's face, Jessie can most often times be seen to be upbeat and smiling. Though known to have more sombre moods of course.
Clothing style: Jessie is dressed in the customary garb of her character from the TV Show, Woody's Round Up, mainly jeans, boots and white pearl button blouse (though said buttons are in fact just plastic decal) with yellow fringe sleeves.
Body build: Slender, and not really counting for tall. Average height up against Woody and others of her set.
Any unique traits (optional): Sports the same pull string as Woody, with catch-phrases of her own and her yodel.
Friendly and Outgoing are probably the first things that come out about Jessie and are noticed by other toys or even now others the cowgirl dolls meets. While not really falling into the category of moody, she can be known to switch from looking on the bright side of a situation to descending into morose, gloomy over worrying over a situation she feels particularly ovewhelming/sad. Mostly this comes out around the topic of being left/children growing and is tied to her fears Emily leaving her caused.
Original character analysis (In your own words and please be thorough)
Brave and Loyal also, Jessie will not hesitate to jump into harrowing situations if her friends are in danger/to help those she cares for. For all her fears over dark spaces, she has also faced certain death/disintegration with a certain calm sense (granted Woody and Buzz being there helped alot with that).
Made during the height of popularity for the Woody's Round-Up TV show and line of dolls, Jessie found herself bought by a little girl named Emily who loved both the show and horses and then Jessie. The cowgirl quickly became the girl's favorite toy and best friend, providing the silent comfort and companionship only toys and children's imaginations could bring out. Jessie had many happy years with Emily and while she saw warning signs of the girl's interests wavering about pre-teens, she remained hopeful, even after becoming lost under the bed and Emily failing to look for her.
When the girl eventually did find her, Jessie hopefully believed that things would go back to how they were before, but it was not to be and she was only rescued to be donated and left. Sitting in a store for donated goods was even worse and even the next rescuing for the doll was not ideal and what she hoped for, a collector finding her and only packing her away. Yet she was packed away with others of her set, Stinky Pete the Prospector and Bullseye, Sheriff Woody's horse.
Though she knew it wasn't ideal, Pete (still in his box and so knowing even further about loneliness) instilled in the cowgirl the hope that once Al the collector found Woody they would be shipped to a museum and loved by children forever. Jessie (and Pete) convinced herself it was the best she could hope for and so when Woody later was brought to the stuffy, bland apartment room, the cowgirl was ecstatic!
Yet it was not the fulfillment of wishes she had hoped for, Woody still attached to his own owner and still holding that hope that deep down Jessie wished she still did but had been jilted too much to do so. She tried, by telling her tale, to convince Woody to stay, and seemed to for a small bit, but in the end, Woody convinced Jessie to give children one last shot and after working around Pete's plotting for his own sake, the cowgirl did, finding Andy was all Woody had said he was and even his sister Molly wasn't half bad.
Yet, Jessie had still seen what happened when children grew up and so as the years passed, worry crept in again and especially as she and the others of Andy's toys were left for longer and longer periods of time in the toybox. Andy didn't rush to donate them, though, and Woody's own faith was a bit infectious, so Jessie held to a tentative hope even as the boy prepared for college...yet that just made it sting all the worse when she believed Andy bagged them all up to leave them on the curb.
Believing they had to take charge of their own fate to avoid being tossed out, Jessie was a main proponent for the idea to climb into the Sunny-Side Day Care donation box Barbie had already been put in; though in the end she basically put them all under the dictatorship and command of one even worse than Pete, Lotso running an all out prison for toys! It was, again, Woody and his faith in Andy and children in general who found them the right idea; getting them donated to a girl he knew would love them...then even seeing beyond his own plan and coming with them.
Now, even though Jessie is still a bit worried as any toy should be about their child growing up, she can't deny Andy did better for them than she had expected and some of the cowgirl's faith has been restored, or she more realizes she wasn't wrong to trust the boy all the years that she did.
Of course this now being lost from Bonnie and everyone who was familiar is a bit unsettling!
Ambitions: Make it back to Bonnie. Remain loved by a child forever. Remember both Emily and Andy as well. Have fun and explore through it all though.
Strengths & abilities: Can ride and rope just like her character on the show, on either Bullseye or a dog. Agile and quick footed, Jessie can scale bookcases or anything needed and even keep her balance and footing on a moving toy car on a loop track. Can lift a bit over her own size/what would be expected though there are limitations on that and just slightly over.
Flaws: Though not apparently obvious, Jessie does hold a problem with grudges/any and all hurt hitting deep and being hard overcome. Stubborn and a bit Prideful in the worst of moods and the other side of her exuberant personality is flying off the handle a bit.
Likes: Riding and Roping or any simliar western themed play. Horses. Children. Her friends. Buzz Lightyear in a way.
Dislikes: Being left out/Left alone. Though not as big a threat to her, vacuum cleaners and other toy dangers etc. Lotso or that one particular bear.
Fears: Dark, cramp spaces. The ultimate of her dislike of Left Alone Forever. What will happen after Bonnie grows up, though it's a ways off. Readjusting.
