Vanessa Fly Trap Characters: Elizabeth Scout

Elizabeth is the mother of Tony and Kate Scout and the adoptive mother of Vanessa and Victor Sprout.

Appearance

Elizabeth Portrait

Elizabeth has dark brown eyes which match her medium brown complexion. She also has wavy black hair that reaches past her shoulders. She typically wears an outfit consisting of blue jeans and a pink top with the female symbol in the front. She is usually seen sporting her burgundy flower earrings.

Background
Elizabeth was born in the U.S.A. to two Jamaican parents. As such she is fluent in American English and Jamaican patios (especially when she is angry). She was the youngest, with an older sister and brother.
She met her future husband in her senior year of high school, and he decided to go to her college. There she also met Vanessa’s mother and became good friends with her. After having two children of her own, Elizabeth adopted Vanessa and Victor when their parents where no longer able.

Personality

Elizabeth is an optimist in her own abilities and maintain a high opinion about herself. Being goal-oriented, she has confidence and drive but may be condescending or use a forceful approach (like dogged persistence) to get what she wants. When things go different than expected, she tends to over-analyze the decisions that need to be made. This can make her appear indecisive while she takes her time, sorting through the various outcomes she considers. As such, she is not a quick decision-maker, and can become flustered when things happen too swiftly, and doesn’t like surprises very much. However she is known for taking decisions on a whim sometimes, and she is rather stubborn once she has made up her mind about something.

She can have trouble admitting she is wrong, but will eventually confide advice from other sources like her husband. Also no matter the goal or roles she strives for, she keeps her priorities in check, like making sure to make time for her family.

Her parenting style is generally authoritative, and she is the one who most often establishes the rules and guidelines that her children are expected to follow. When Tony and Kate were toddlers, she was more authoritarian and punished them when they misbehaved. Georges influence however shifted her to explain the reasoning behind her discipline and be more responsive to her children. However she lets them know she’s serious when she raises her voice.
