Dislikes: People who kill unicorns, stress, rain (totally chose the right city).
Injuries: Helland Damnation from Bellingham separated my shoulder in 2008. Otherwise I’ve mostly had a whole bunch of bruises and rink-rashes. It sort of sucks, because I don’t bruise easily, so my battle scars are most of the time not as obvious as other girls’.

Bio: Swede Hurt was the love child of a Giant Amazon and a Viking warrior, her mother mysteriously murdered by an arrow of Cupid and her father missing after an expedition out west…
Her Godmother, being a troll, Swede Hurt was raised inside the mountains by trolls, learned to live during the night and how to fight clean, in a dirty environment. Her hair white as snow and her body tall and lanky, she stood out like a sore thumb, but still the trolls took a liking to her, even if they forbade her to frolic on the rainbows in the sun, they said it could kill her… the sun make trolls burst and they worries about the laughing snow child.
But one day Swede discovered that the sun didn’t kill her, like it burst open her fellow trolls. So she left the inside of the mountains and set out in the world to solve the mystery of her past: what really had happened to her mother and father. After years of ice-skating over frozen oceans, wandering across mountains, riding unicorns, learning forgotten northern magic she came to USA. She felt at home in Seattle, close to the open water and wedged in among mountains… she hid her magic unicorn in the closet and wandered off to find friends.
One day she changed her ice-skates for roller-skates and life became so much easier… so now she fights off the evil with rainbow power and laughing at the world in general on her trustworthy rollerskates…
