Hi! It’s time for another Date or Die character profile!
Cheerful and empathetic, Hat Trick is a caring young woman who tries to carry everyone’s burdens on her shoulders if she can. Even in her day job - working at a bakery - she tries her hardest to leave a positive impact on people’s day, through saving a regular a favorite pastry or drawing a smiley face on someone’s coffee cup. In her free time, she does a lot of volunteer work, and one of her favorite things is teaching self defense classes. While she genuinely enjoys interacting with people, it can still be a nerve-wracking experience, especially given that she’s autistic. Social interaction is already troubling enough when you’re not trapped on a murderous game show with five strangers!
FUN FACTS ABOUT HAT TRICK:
- She always smells like fresh bread. It’s fantastic.
- Sad commercials wreck her shit. Animal shelter ones wreck everyone’s shit, but sometimes she cries over particularly touching car commercials too. Her roommates don’t even bother to ask why she’s crying anymore, they just have a designated crying pillow at the ready.
- Hat Trick actually loves doing chores and cleaning. If you let her stay at your house for a night or two, she’ll go full Studio Ghibli protagonist and surprise you with a clean living room.
- Her nickname comes from the fact that she’s black, queer, and autistic. You know, a hat-trick! The Host is a fucking dick!
As always, the beautiful character artwork is done by Julian. I had help creating Hat Trick from the smart and lovely Gita Jackson. We hope you love our amazing daughter and that you can save her from the terrible hellscape she’s been put into.
