Paraiba is a 22-year-old African American runaway from the Midwest, she left a middle upper-class family at the age of 16 due to extensive abuse from a relative. She barely graduated high school but still managed to do so by living in her late boyfriend's apartment.
He was seven years older than her and a high ranking gang member, unfortunately, he was killed in a drive-by shooting. His baby Mama was able to help Paraiba find somewhere to live, so she took Paraiba halfway across the country to a city dubbed Crack Den.
Paraiba's old city got a bad rep but she was way out of her league when she first arrived. She had to put on a tough front in order to survive in her new environment. She hated everything about the city, how dingy it was, the crime, everything.
So Paraiba decided she had to work her ass to get out of their asap. She became a striper an occupation that absolutely made her skin crawl but nonthing else would bring in nearly enough unless she sold her body or drugs, which seemed like too much for her to handle.
3 years in the den has hardened Paraiba but at heart, she's still an innocent girl from the midwest. She works at Titty Twister and has Squidward levels of enthusiasm about her job. She likes nice things and works hard for everything she owns however she's careful on the streets, she may dress flashy but she's absolutely not afraid to stab someone.
