I'm not in love, I just wanna be touched

Out of herself and her siblings, Erica is the one whom most closely resembles their mother. Erica's hair is long, reaching her mid-back, and usually kept down, although sometimes with a headband or bandana wrapped around. Her hair is very dark brown, nearly black, and stands out brilliantly when framing a face as pale as her own. She has small hazel eyes with long lashes, and which are almost always accented by a bit too much eye make-up. She has a slightly angular nose that runs in her family. Erica's smile is wide and bright with straight and white teeth, the result of years of charms on the part of her mother. Erica's teeth were terribly crooked throughout her childhood, but her mother never gave up on her even if a few spells might have backfired.

With her slightly fair skin, she much prefers keeping up a darker olive complexion over her body. She hates being pale. She enjoys tanning, and tries to keep her summer color up, stretching it as far as she can manage. She hates how sick she looks when she lets her color go to waste, and much prefers the tanned look, even if she has to go through a few sunburns to get it. Her face a little angular, like her nose, with thin lips and thin eyebrows. She stands a little taller than most of the girls her age, reaching five feet and nine inches, just a few inches below her older brother.

I think I've got too close, 'cause now he's telling me that I'm the girl he likes most

Although Erica is far from perfect, she tries to project the best possible image of herself, despite all of her flaws. She can appear calm and cool, but still be full of turmoil on the inside. She likes to leave the sunny side facing up, smiling whenever she can. She keeps up a facade of goofiness and carelessness, but there is a much deeper side to her that only her closest friends get to see. Despite being rather friendly, Erica is a desperately private person who doesn't often like to share much about herself, or whatever she happens to be feeling. She is more than ready to let a friend open up and cry on her shoulder, but she is often reluctant to accept a returning of the favor.

Erica's issues with her family run deep, and have left a prominent mark on her view of the world. She plays the constant role of her mother's support system, and has from a young age. She was always the favorite. Even as a young girl, she was accustomed to girls days out together to relieve her mother's stress, and being the one to sit in her mother's lap while the woman cried over how John treated her. Erica is also fond of her siblings, although they are not extraordinarily close; if push came to shove, she would support them, but she doesn't force herself on them. She hopes that they know well enough to come to her if they need her.

Now I messed up, it's not the first time

Meeting during their own education at Blue Ridge School, John Kauffman and Lisa Danvers were the typical high-school sweethearts, and no one could have predicted how sour their relationship would one day become. They married and moved to John's hometown of Boston shortly after graduation, high school for Lisa and university for John, and had their first son less than a year after that. One year after John Jr was born, Emily came along next, followed by Erica, and then Erin.

Growing up with lots of siblings and a loving mother was a blessing, but growing up with John for a father was not an enjoyable life. It was more like living with a bear. Just like so many Kauffman family members before him, Walburga included, Michael was often angry and generally abrasive, bordering on abusive. Toward both his wife and his young children. One of Erica's earliest memories of her father is from around just after her sixth birthday, when he made the family dog disappear in order to punish her for breaking a glass while setting the table for tea. She can still recall him screaming at her, his breath warm on her face, and his expression bright red with anger. Weeks later, she found the dog's bloody leather collar in the yard while playing with Erin.

Lisa did what she could to deal with her husband, and trying uselessly to protect her children, but she was blinded by her affection for the man. Every time he did something terrible to either his wife or the children, John would usually apologize, make amends, assure her that he would work on improving himself. In all honesty, things never changed, not for any longer than a few measly days. Erica's early memories of home are riddled with recollections of his many screaming matches with her mother, and his incredibly cruel punishments. She hated the way her father would look at her and her siblings as if she meant nothing, and the feeling it left lingering in her has stayed with her for her entire life.

It was just before John Jr went away to school that John began acting even more distant than ever.
