Born in Phuket, Darika has always been a country-girl. Though the land is mostly vast jungles, elevated rocks, and heighty, she's always played a lot as a kid. Her favorite spot was an ancient temple that seemed to have some sort of modern-futuristic technology. She could see part of the temple was missing at the center from it's intented markings. She'd play with many wild animals, including many Sumatran tigers, bats, and other various indegenous wildlife that her grandmother didn't know about.
In her youth, she lived with her grandmother, helping her cook various Thai food. She had dreams of one day becoming a famous Thai chef, introducing her ancient family's recipies to the world.
One day, she came home to find her grandmother passed out on the floor. Friends and neighbors were able to take Darika and her grandmother to Bangkok, but becasue her grandmother couldn't take care of her, she had given Darika a letter in an envelope for said emergency to give to her mother, who was to be found in the Red light District.
Almost shunned out of every brothel as a street urchin, Darika lost hope trying to find her mom. With a stroke of luck, she ran into her mother's pimp, a gay dwarf Siamese cat known as "บิ๊กพ่อ" (bik phk) or "Big Daddy." He led Darika to the brothel he owned, and she was reunited with her mother. Though it was a little bit embarrassing for the mom to have her daughter see her mom as a prostitiute, she took Darika in.
They were very poor, and since Big Daddy took 60 percent of all Darika's mom's earnings, Darika hustled her way in school. With a very poor education, she could do what she could do, finding solace in her Home Economics class and cooking some of the most amazing dishes.
The day she came back from school to present an award to her mom, a male client tried to take her virginity, but Darika's mom beat the man down and told him to never come back again. This was the last straw, and she knew she had to find a safe place for Darika. Once her mom saved up enough to buy an apartment, she made sure Darika stayed at home at night away from danger of the streets. With a little help, she was eventually sent to a boarding school.
Years later, Darika came home, and noticed her mother had became very sick. Afraid her mother would pass away like her grandmother, Darika tried her best to nurse her mother to health. She had skipped a lot of classes, and eventually the dean had to withdraw her from the school, even though she was one of the top students in her class, skipping a grade ahead.
A few months later, her mom passed away. Doctors found out from samples she had tested positive for FIV, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and died from FAIDS. The FIV strain targeted anthro felines, and the doctors ran tests to see if Darika tested positive for it, as her mom actually had been since she was born.
When the test results came back, the results showed she had No FIV viruses in her body. She swore on her mother's grave to never have to put herself into prostitution.
Darika remembered her mother mentioned her father was an American and constantly sent her love letters promising he would buy her out of her contract. The letter was from the US, and with the money Darika saved up, she moved to the state where her father supposedly lives.
she has a large old family she hasn't met on her mother's side.
