a twin sister, Lola

Flora is the younger of the Flores twins, much more stoic and unapproachable than her sister. She appears indifferent about mostly everything except botany and classic art. She's a quiet and reserved girl with autism, and has no real interest in meeting new people. She never looks directly at anyone, even when she's speaking.
She can come off as a bit cold and aloof, but she doesn't mean to be. She's just disinterested in and uncomfortable around people. It’s hard to become friends with her, but she's a thoughtful and creative girl if you get to know her. Her sister Lola is pretty much the only person capable of getting more than a few words from her, unless you get her talking about plants.

Her given name is Soledad, but everyone calls her Flora.
She’s happy with her hands in the dirt.
She loves museums; strolling among the quiet statues, and sitting for hours just admiring her favorite paintings.
She likes water colors, and has lots of sketchbooks filled with little paintings of flowers and sculptures.
Her favorite painter is Monet.
When she’s alone, Flora often talks to plants.
She and Lola have a pet tortoise called Valentino.
Her greatest fear in life is to lose her sister.
Other than them having blatantly different hairstyles, Flora has three beauty marks and a generally grumpier look on her face, fuller lips, and glasses. Lola on the other hand has thinner lips, bigger eyes, and is also marginally taller.
Flora wears comfortable clothes like loose tees, cardigans and mom jeans. Her and Lola share their wardrobe, which is 99% thrifted and goes in in yellow, blue, brown and green hues. It includes a lot of floral prints, suede and distressed denim.
