Know the Heroine from A Very Alien Christmas

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Noelle likes to tinker. When she’s bored, she goes into Santa’s workshop and fixes things like broken toys or malfunctioning equipment. She also likes to invent things. She’ll take out a sketch pad and draw her ideas.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Peppermint candy canes

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Standard issue elf clothing. Everything is green, red and white. Sometimes with a combination of stripes.

Does she know how to fix things?

She loves to fix things! It’s her job! She’s passionate about taking things apart to see how they work and then assembling it back together. She’s always full of ideas on how to make things work more efficiently.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Noelle finally talked Santa and the head elf into installing a new engine in the sleigh. Something that doesn’t require the magic reindeer for flight. She’s testing the engines when something goes wrong mid-flight and the engines stall. Smoke billows and she and the sleigh plummet to the Earth. Thankfully, Jaxar is in the area with his spaceship and beams her aboard.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She loves children! She helps Santa deliver presents every year to children she doesn’t know. It pleases her beyond belief to make children happy.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Noelle can be a bit of a grump until she has her peppermint mocha latte. Yes, even in the North Pole they drink coffee.

How does she act around people who don’t know what she is?

She doesn’t get away from the North Pole often, but when she does, as long as she keeps a hat on her head to cover her pointed elf ears, she can pass for human. She has a bubbly, optimistic attitude and doesn’t shy away from meeting new peopleā€¦ or aliens.

Will she let a worker handle things or do it herself?

Noelle is a team player. While she does tend to take control of a situation, she knows protocol. She didn’t take it upon herself to tinker with Santa’s sleigh. She got permission from the big boss first. After that, she enjoyed working on the new engine, but she didn’t work alone.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

No earrings or other piercings. She thought once about getting a candy cane tattooed on her behind, but never went through with it.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Santa’s sleigh isn’t her personal vehicle, but he’s been known to let his elves take it for a spin now and again. As long as they aren’t seen by humans.

Recycle or toss?

Always recycle. Noelle is excellent at fixing or re-purposing broken toys and other items. She never throws anything away.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
