Appearance

A 5'5" woman with dark, curly hair and light hazel eyes, Beatriz's looks are more suited a night club than to Court. She typically appears in black patent leather heels, mini skirts, and slouchy, off-the-shoulder 70's tops. She has a light, breezy manner which occasionally gives way to a darker, more serious demeanor. She seems overly-preoccupied with other people's clothing choices.

Background

Long-dresses-model.jpg

In the 1970's Beatriz Velasquez Vega was a promising young film major at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. Due to a profound lack of self-discipline and lazy attitude towards her work, she eventually dropped out to pursue more "experimental" material. Although tangentially related to The Factory scene in Manhattan during the height of the disco era, she never made significant inroads with anyone important in the Warhol crowd. She admired film auteurs such as Paul Morrissey, Jean Rollin, and Ingmar Bergman and sought to emulate them in her short films.

However, the difference between Beatriz and her film idols lay in that Beatriz was, and is, an excruciatingly bad director. If she had spent less time covered in sweat, glitter and cocaine down at The Cheetah night club she might have actually learned something in film school. Despite having conceits about making "high art," she was eventually forced to return home a failure. By the late 1980's she'd moved back to New Mexico where she continued to live in a non-marginal amount of luxury on her parent's largesse. When her mother and father's patience with her profligate lifestyle ran out, and tremendously deep in debt, she wound up in the business of making cheap sexploitation films thinly-disguised as horror flicks to make ends meet. With god-awful titles like "Vampire Bunnies Get Staked Hard," these films would occasionally make the cover of magazines like Fangoria. She would still insist what she was doing was "art."

Aside from her own terrible craft, Beatriz has strong connections within the legitimate New Mexico TV and movie industries, including several friends at the New Mexico Film Board. She has her hands in the production of a few successful TV shows filmed in the state, but only in a remote, financial capacity.

Beatriz lives in a gracious Spanish Colonial home on the outskirts of Albuquerque where the majority of her own movies are filmed. This estate is one of several Vega Family properties; all members of the family have a standing invitation to come by anytime. The house itself exists in a near-constant state of Gatsby-esque 24-hour party, with filming going on at all odd hours. The premises are littered with useless hangers-on and club kids looking to score drugs or alcohol. Beatriz doesn't keep track of who comes and goes; the doors are always open. A tremendous voyeur, she likes to watch others but never involves herself directly in the revelry.

Despite an overall shallowness, Beatriz is a fundamentally humane person. She doesn't like to ghoul servants (a process she finds disgusting), and tries to maintain a humanist way of unlife. She surrounds herself with mortals and prefers to spend most of her time around them. Her only consort is a not particularly bright mortal chauffeur.

Last, but hardly least, Beatriz is completely and utterly infatuated with clothing, especially other people's clothing. Her tastes vary widely, but if anyone brings up couture, she is quick to name Rodarte, Oscar de la Renta, Comme de Garçons, and especially Alexander McQueen as her favorites. In directly reverse proportion, anyone wearing clothing she doesn't like will irritate her--often to the point where she cannot pay attention to anything else going on around her except for the sartorial offense.
