Sandy Gonzalez was born Sandra Anita Gonzalez in October of 1984. Her parents are both full-blooded Mexican as they became U.S. citizens in 1981. They previously lived in Tijuana, Mexico. Their first American home was in San Diego, just to be close to home. When Sandy's mother, Anita, was pregnant with baby Sandy, the family moved to their current home of Anaheim. Baby Sandy was well educated in music. She actually played violin, but found violins boring. Her father, Enrique, loves classic rock. He sometimes hums his favorite rock tunes on a sunny day in Anaheim. Sandy actually liked pop music and hip-hop. Her love of music completely changed to rock when she went to her first rock concert at only 13. She wanted her own acoustic guitar for her birthday. As she became more involved in making music, she ended up constantly breaking the strings of the guitar. It wasn't until when she graduated from high school that she'd get her own electric guitar.
Some of Sandy's friends learned of her guitar talent and wanted to form a band. The quartet had just enough money to get a decent set of drums, some extra guitars, and even some good quality speakers. Their first concert was a makeshift one as Sandy and her crew did a one-off rock concert on the campus of California State University-Long Beach (or Long Beach State). They put on a great outdoor rock show. Then, they tried their luck in Los Angeles. While they put on a great performance, no one wanted to give the girls a record deal. So the girls just decide to be just a college band.
Sandy's attitude and clothing choices were fueled by hate of one girl from her high school graduating class. One girl was a solo guitarist and rocker, and she ended up getting a rock music contract. Sandra was viciously jealous of her because she was pretty in looks, but lacked any real musical talent. Sandy decided to drop her girly ways and "intentionally" dress ugly. She started cutting off most of her to look more like a boy. She went from shoulder-length hair to something boyish. Sandy still retained some of her bangs to help shape her face. A lot of her really cute shoes were donated. Sandy went from a pretty face to a mean girl... with a pretty face. She started wearing more dark-colored clothes and threw away all of the CDs from pop and hip-hop artists she's previously listened to.
Sandy also engaged in underground fight clubs to develop her brawling skills. She specifically wishes to fight pretty girls to rough them up and beat them down. Sandy only lost three times in the twenty or so fights she's been in.
Her lifestyle is purely rock music now. She only hangs out with people who love rock music. She only goes to rock concerts while loathing any other kind of music (even soft rock). She wears more clothing with mean messages or skulls more than cute shirts with hearts and/or flowers. Sandy still aspires to get a music contract for either herself or for her group, and her best chance is with an upcoming all-female fighting tournament.
Sandy's looks are all about being boy-tough while being modestly girly. She wears a black top that has in small magenta letters, "Girl Rock." Between "Girl" and "Rock" is a small heart. Sandy's bottoms are either from long dark gray cargo shorts or a long pleated skirt. She wears combat boots to complete the look.
Secondary Looks and Variations.
Sandy was a lover of all music, but has since been a hard rock girl. She is fairly heavy, but is very athletic. Her punches can deal some serious damage. Since she's heavy, her mobility and agility suffer greatly. She's more the kind of fighter who wants to put away her opponent(s) quickly. She can also deal some serious damage with great hold attacks. Her melee weapon is an acoustic guitar, in which one of her girls throws an acoustic guitar into Sandy's hands and swings it down like an axe on the head or lower body of her opponent.
Sandy wants to show the world that girls rock. Her motivation to keep fighting is to beat down anyone who hates rock music or is very pretty with little or no talent. If Sandy wins the tournament, she'd replace the luxury car with a cruiser motorcycle and the exotic sports car with a beautiful American muscle car.
* I had initially named her Sandy Gutierrez. But I've changed her surname to the one I've used for her in the past- Gonzalez.
