Juniper Grove: Gen 1 Baby Mama
Aspiration: Painter Extraordinaire
Traits: Creative, Family Oriented, Romantic, Creative Visionary, Steel Bladder, Marketable
After the juniper plant, a coniferous shrub. It produces berries that are commonly turned into a spice; some varieties of juniper berry, however, are toxic.
Nightshade Grove: Baby #1
Summary: Nightshade, despite her dominant evil trait, has always been one of the Creator’s favorites. She does her homework, she cleans up after herself, and she’s kind to her brothers and sisters. She is always looking for ways to help the Creator and further the Creator’s cause.
After a common family of flowering plants. Many nightshades are completely harmless (potatoes, eggplants, tomatoes), but the list of poisonous nightshades are far more extensive.
Rosary Grove: Baby #2
Summary: Rosary is Nightshade’s twin, but there are hardly two people more different. Rosary is cheerful and self-assured, but her interests don’t align well with the Creator’s vision. Rosary is headstrong, a handful, and isn’t always the brightest. She vacillates between forgetting to take care of her needs before things become dire and refusing to do so just to spite the Creator or her mother.
After the seed of the crab’s eye creeper plant, called a rosary pea. These seeds are most commonly used as beads in jewelry and in percussion instruments; however, when consumed, rosary peas are quite deadly.
Henbane Grove: Baby #3
Summary: Henbane was for a long while the only boy in the household. Given the habits of his mother concerning the men she beds, this has made Henbane feel rather insecure. Although this initially was expressed in defiance and rage, it has now settled into a strong need to prove himself worthy to the Creator.
After the henbane plant, a poisonous plant in the nightshade family. Henbane, unlike many other nightshades, is not immediately deadly, and instead in low doses can cause vivid visual hallucinations and act as an anesthetic.
Daphne Grove: Baby #4
Summary: Daphne, despite her active trait, is quite the whiz kid. She’s perceptive and smart and, as the fourth child, she’s learned how to blend in, so she sees a lot of things that others don’t. She’s not sure what she thinks about the Creator yet, but she loves her family dearly, so as long as the Creator protects them, she’ll go with the flow.
After the daphne plant, also known as spurge laurel, paradise plant, or dwarf bay; a shrub. Daphne is a common ornamental plant in North America despite the fact that all parts of the plant contain toxins.
Iris and Lily Grove: Baby #5 and #6
Summary: Iris and Lily are the second set of Grove twins. Unlike Nightshade and Rosary, however, they are identical in looks and personality. They almost seem to share the same consciousness. The only difference between them is a common one in twins; Iris appears to be more dominant and outspoken, while Lily is more likely to stay in the shadows.
After the iris, whose bulbs, leaves, and stem are mildly toxic and may cause nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain; and the peace lily, also known as the Mauna Loa plant, whose petals contain insoluble crystals of calcium oxalate that can penetrate and injure tissue when bitten or swallowed.
Castor Grove: Baby #7
Summary: Still a wee bab; an independent toddler.
After the castor bean, which contains ricin, a compound historically used as a potent poison, especially in political assassination attempts.
