Curacao (Updated) by Leijon-Heart Curacao (Updated) by Leijon-Heart
Yep OTL She really did need a make-over. She was so whitewashed, it made me want to chug some bleach. ;w; I hope this one's more accurate :>

It's my Hetalia fancharacter, the representation of Curacao~! I'll put a bio in now :XD:

Basic Info
Country: Island Territory of Curacao
Human Name: Camilla Groenewoud
Language(s): Papiamentu, Dutch
Age: 19
Height: 5'7
Weight: 125 pounds (Yep, I'm not really afraid to put that in lol :D She's a bit on the heavier side)
Love Interest: None
Birthday: July 2nd
Representations:
The rat on her shoulder, named 'Oranje', represents the imports, since rats are often found on ships carrying imported goods. Oranje got its name from the influence of Dutch trade.

She is often pictured with an orange ribbon, which symbolizes her as part of the Netherlands Antilles. (She loses the ribbon when they dissolve though)

Uniforms

Military Uniform
Curacao's military uniform consists of a green cap, a white shirt with a green collar, matching green pants, brown boots, and sometimes shown with fingerless gloves. (This is was the Antilles military uniform in WWII.)

Normal Clothing
Curacao's normal apparel is usually a neon green shirt with cut sleeves, short jean pants, and knee-length converse. She also has ribbons that are usually colored blue, yellow, and white, which are the colors of the Curacao flag.

Gakuen Hetalia High School
Like most female countries at Gakuen Hetalia High, Curacao wears a white long sleeved shirt with a red plaid skirt. On semi-warm and colder days, she wears the school's navy blue jacket over it (due to the fact that she isn't used to having cold weather)

Personality and Interests

Curacao is somewhat social and has a bright personality; however, she is very clumsy and tends to scare people off with the things she cooks (Iguana soup anyone? How about some cacti soup?) She's very good at playing baseball (apparently in the Little League world series, Curacao just beat Germany 14 - 2) Curacao can also windsurf and scuba dive (there's an underwater marine park there :D) In times of battle, she tends to blend in with her enviroment (see history with Germany for more info)

Relationships with other characters

Spain
Spain was the first country to discover (at the time chibi) Curacao. He raised her for a while until Netherlands decided to take her from him :XD:

Netherlands
Curacao lived in Netherlands' house along with her brother and sister, Bonaire and Aruba. She looks up to Netherlands like an older brother and tried to be like him. Once, she planned and helped build Dutch-styled houses on Willemstad (the capital of her country) She loved neon colors so she painted the houses very bright colors. Recently, due to her bad ways of keeping money (aka bad economy) Netherlands told her that she really needed to start worrying about what she's spending her money on. (And it goes on until this day.)

England and France
Between the 1700 to 1800, France and England kept gaining control over Curacao when she wandered out of Netherlands' house. Netherlands would get her back every once in a while too, but she was very curious about the outside world.

The Allies
During WWII, Aruba and Curacao imported oil to the Allies. (They were the main importers of oil at that time to them.)

Aruba
Aruba and Curacao have a very odd relationship. They had many times where they were allies, but Curacao felt very dissapointed as her older sister left Mr. Netherlands' house before she did. (In 1985, if I'm correct?)

Bonaire
Bonaire and Curacao have an average I'm-your-sibling-so-I'm-going-to-pester-you-all-day-long relationship. They do have a little bit of competition and Bonaire sometimes teases her about her bad economy (Though he doesn't realize that he's in one too.)

Germany
During WWII, Germany attempted to find Curacao's island via U-boats (lol'd) Curacao blended in and the island wasn't found. (What really happened: Everyone on the island used black-out curtains, and the Germans attempted to attack the island at night)

:iconfreevitalregionsplz: <- This is for you if you read all that.

2 hours of typing are FINALLY OVER.

If you have any suggestions for this character, please comment, or even better, give me a critique.

Bedankt~ :iconblushplz:

I just came from reading your journal publish on SaneHetaliaFans (though I'm not a member of that group) to take a look at your character that represents a country I never heard of before. Look wise she appears to be fun loving character to be around with. Plus I personally think she looks attractive, but that is because I am usually attracted to girls with a youthful appearance and a brown complexion. As a side note the mice on her looks cute though kind of dog like in it's physique.

As for her information is seems good. Plus it wasn't that long to read. I'm kind of surprise it took you two hours to write this, but the same time I can understand because I have done this as well and it does take a long time to write everything down (though with my case I write long bios of my characters). I especially like how she can blend in during times of war (that seems cool of her :D). She seems to know what she's doing during combat/war. Plus she comes off as being a possible assassin.

Now to point out things for the heck of it.

Weight: 125 pounds (Yep, I'm not really afraid to put that in lol :D She's a bit on the heavier side)

Don't be afraid. It's her weight after all. Plus she looks good for someone who's heavy. :)

Representations:
The rat on her shoulder, named 'Oranje', represents the imports, since rats are often found on ships carrying imported goods. Oranje got its name from the influence of Dutch trade.

Wouldn't that be consider a bad thing? I'm not one of those people that hate rats (in fact I think they are actually cute) it's just when rats occupy areas like ships it's usually associated that the area in unsanitary. Let alone diseases have been spread from one place to another because of rats. I am just saying.

however, she is very clumsy and tends to scare people off with the things she cooks (Iguana soup anyone? How about some cacti soup?)

By people you mean tourist? I just want to be sure.

Aruba
Aruba and Curacao have a very odd relationship. They had many times where they were allies, but Curacao felt very dissapointed as her older sister left Mr. Netherlands' house before she did. (In 1985, if I'm correct?)

Was Curacao upset that her older sister left Holland before she did therefore leaving her alone and missing her, or was there some other reason?

That's all from me. I would also have commented and shared my views on your journal but I don't know if I should since I'm not a member. I would just leave it in that it was nicely done.
