Kailey Tedesco as Hortensia Celeste

Character Bio

Hortensia (affectionately called Hor), has been living in the body of her 19 year-old self for the past fifty years. She is doomed to live forever in eternal youth which would be a welcomed curse if not for the migraines. Without any prior symptoms, Hor’s own mind will swallow her into visions of crimes she has no way of preventing.  Holding both a job or a relationship has become quite impossible, so Hor lives out her days lost in poetry and constantly sipping jasmine tea with a splash of rose milk (the only known cure for her debilitating migraines).
