Vanessa (or Ness/Nessie to her friends) Owens is the daughter of Corbin and Lily and the sister of Thomas and Carly. She was disowned by her parents when they found out she was a Lesbian so she had to leave but she left with no regret about who she was and often laughed at her parents tense marriage which they considered 'ideal'.
At a young age, Vanessa was often favoured by her parents due to her talents in sport compared to her weedy brother. She could easily out toddle him and often won in the fight for the lone milk bottle. She was also charismatic and charmed people with her babble. She was good at most things but Thomas was better at Potty training as he was more patient. At school, she had many friends and also gained the nickname Nessie due to an strange encounter on a school trip. She had many friends and didn't notice her best friend, Mathew had a big crush on her. As a teen, she began dating Mathew but(to his disappointment)it was not working and after a new girl, Claire and Vanessa had a crush on her, it was over. They began dating but then her homophobic dad found out. After a big fight about 'values', Vanessa left to live with her aunt and uncle who were accepting and after they heard the story broke off contact with her old family at her request. She broke up with Claire after they went to different colleges.
As a young adult, Vanessa moved into a residence by herself as she preferred to be alone and study. She studied art and was good at it mainly because she had nobody to distract her. Around this time, her brother got in touch with her and he told her he was at a different college but wanted to tell her life at home was bad without her. Vanessa replied kindly but made it clear she WAS NEVER COMING HOME TO THOSE BIGOTS, EVER AGAIN! He didn't write again. Around this time, Vanessa began dropping grades when she began going down to the local coffee shop and meeting new friends. She soon realised that she was not getting enough to pay for her bills and rent so she applied for a room mate. The room mate turned put to be the beautiful Imogen Space. Vanessa immediately liked her and Imogen soon realised that she liked her back. They began dating and everything went great until the abduction.
Vanessa never meant to be taken but one night when looking into the sky she saw something in front of her and realised it was a spaceships. She screamed and cried but nobody heard her. A few hours later she was thrown out but she soon realised something. She was carrying an alien baby! She thought Imogen would be horrified but instead she was fine as aliens were normal to her. She even agreed to adopt the baby! The baby was born and they named him Charlie. Just as everything was going great, Vanessa and Imogen went to a party where the local (rich) womaniser, Malcolm was. He ignored Vanessa as he considered her to be too 'arty' and went straight to Imogen. Imogen was drunk and he easily seduced her. Vanessa saw him a leading a woman up to a bedroom but she never suspected it to be Imogen. She decided to enjoy the party until she heard Imogen laugh and went up and found her and Malcolm woohooing. She was furious and sent Imogen out the house and was horrified when Imogen moved in with Malcolm. She graduated but only just.
As an adult, Vanessa bought a small apartment in Bluewater village where she and Charlie lived. It was a hard life, juggling bills, work, a baby and fees for a nanny. She wished Imogen was with her but soon found out she had moved away into the countryside. Vanessa was depressed. Life with Charlie was hard and she soon took to drinking. She became aggressive and hated Charlie because he was an alien and Imogen had had alien blood in her family. She smashed glass bottles everywhere so the apartment was always a mess and Charlie's life was miserable. One day, Charlie was hungry and asked her for food but she said he was ungrateful so she sent him out of the house... Vanessa struggled with the fact that Charlie went to Imogen and began overdosing on Alcohol. Vanessa became depressed and lost the will to live. She died after being crushed by her own murphy bed. The only people to attend her funeral was her uncle and aunt.
- Vanessa has dyed her hair from Black to Blonde.
- Vanessa nearly didn't come into Imogen's life. Ola was meant to be Imogen's college love, she would take care of Charlie and they eventually reconcile. Vanessa and Imogen met accidentally and sort of happened.
- Vanessa is a shorty, barely about 5'0" tall.
- Poor Vanessa, I feel that originally she was a good person but life was cruel to her and sort of... warped her.
