Lives with a foster family in the region of Västra Götaland in Sweden.
Johanna is an energetic, creative and clever person. She is often the one who comes up with bright ideas and activities amongst friends. Her ideas are sometimes a little too ambitious and might never be fully realised. But Johanna is a girl who will still work towards a goal she has set her mind to, even if it might appear to be an impossible task. In those cases, she often needs someone to bring her back down to earth..
Johanna has a cheerful and positive attitude towards life, can sometimes be very playful but hard to take seriously. But she can sometimes have difficulties taking situations seriously. This is usually due to her lack of social awareness and difficulty to judge moods and situations. She often overlooks negative aspects of serious situations or people, which sometimes leads to awkward moments which she doesn’t fully understand until later when she realises or has explained to her what she said or did might have been inappropriate. Worse yet, she might completely misunderstand a dangerous situation and won't feel threatened until the very last moment, where her extreme fight-or-flight response will kick in.
Because of her positive outlook and interesting ideas she's always been very popular in school and group activities. However, she can have difficulties making connections on a more personal level, so she only has a select few close friends. When she is at home, she spends most of her time studying or enjoying her interests and hobbies.
When nervous or in deep thought, she has a bad habit of fiddling with or sucking on her hair braids.
Johanna likes to work with her hands and create interesting themes and designs. This can range from paper-craft and sculpting to interior designs. Due to her often changing mind and pursue of greater ideas, she's got a lot of abandoned and scrapped projects.
Right now, the idea she is shooting for is to start up a café or restaurant with an interesting theme and motif where she would sell all sorts of interesting and unique foods, since the vegetarian food she gets at home and the school food isn't much to cheer for.
Lately, she's been enjoying playing detective to try and find out what happened to her biological family and if the girl in the basement was real. She's visited the local library to check old newspapers and searched online to little avail. It was such a long time ago she's having a hard time remembering what actually happened in those days. All she's certain of is that the girl was a catperson and that she called herself “Tuh-wheese” which she assumes meant something along the lines of “Therese”. But her search hasn't been successful yet.
Outside of her foster family and select friends, most of whom are female, Johanna doesn't really know many people she can trust, even if has an easy time connecting with strangers. Due to her scrawny appearance, she is not often sought after by boys, and those who have tried eventually give up when they realize she doesn’t really take relationships seriously.
Johanna and her foster parents get along pretty well, she likes them and accepts them as her parents. She has no problem coming to them with problems or questions if she has any and she is happy to take part in family activities.
There is only one thing that they quarrel about from time to time, food. Johanna's foster parents are vegetarians, a lifestyle Johanna does not agree with. She doesn't mind eating most of the food that is served to her, but it is not anything she particularly enjoys either, so she can be pretty picky or eats very little, this upsets her foster parents from time to time..
Her older sister, whom she knows only as Therese. She only met her a few times when she snuck into the locked basement of her old parents' home. It didn't take long before the sister in the basement had suddenly vanished without a trace. Her parents had scolded her about going down into the forbidden basement, but also acted as if the girl living down there never existed.
Before she knew it, her whole family was split apart and she couldn't understand why, mostly because nobody bothered to explain things to her. All she was told was that she was to move in with a foster family since her biological parents had been arrested. None of her questions surrounding the events were ever answered and the subject was eventually totally avoided after much confrontation. As she got older, she's tried to find out what really happened back then and made many attempts to find out if the girl in the basement was real or just a figment of her imagination.
