History

  • Vee was born in Taipei, Taiwan to Chinese parents. She was often babysat by her paternal grandmother who would sing songs and water her plants on the porch while Vee played with her doll. She often told stories of the past – mostly fables, to warn Vee not to wander away from her parents or trust strangers.
  • Her parents moved to Anchorage, Alaska when she was four where her father is headhunted for a company there. The Fans become close friends with their neighbors, the Anawaks, a Inuit family consisting of a single dad and two daughters.
  • Her little sister Wanda “Wonder” is born. Vee is uncertain of becoming an older sister at age five but she slowly warms up to the younger, more rambunctious girl.
  • Vee becomes best friends with Elsie Anawak, the youngest of the Anawak sisters and the only one in her grade. Elsie is more impulsive, bossy, and reckless compared to Vee, who is shy and stubborn, but the two form a close bond and balance each other.
  • Vee’s father dies in a car accident when she is eight years old.
  • She and Elsie receive spirit totem necklaces for their tenth birthdays from Elsie’s father, Jack. Hers is a Swan and Elsie’s is a badger. Vee is told that hers represents grace, serenity, and innocence.
  • The following year, Vee is invited to go with Elsie with her family on a camping trip. Elsie convinces her to leave the tent while her father and older sister are asleep because her dad hadn’t shown them “the good trails”. Vee is too afraid to go beyond where the tent is visible. Elsie chides her for being a big baby and goes ahead anyway and Vee remains in camp to wait for her. Elsie is later attacked by a couple of coyotes after she becomes lost in the woods. Her screams prompt Vee, to run to the tent where Elsie’s father is already awake. He takes his gun and runs into the forest to find Elsie. Elsie succumbs to her injuries not long after she is found.
  • Vee blames herself for Elsie’s death. She starts having nightmares about being lost in the forest and develops a fear of coyotes despite not witnessing her friend’s death nor having seen a coyote in real life outside of visual media. She has also had a harder time making new friends. Her mother brings her to see a therapist once a month to combat these issues.
  • Her mother begins dating Jack Anawak when Vee is fourteen. They marry during the summer of 2011.
  • After graduating high school, she attends the University of Alaska Anchorage, majoring in English. She later finishes her masters in Library Science there. During that time, she meets and becomes engaged to a fellow student named Nolan Yates. Nolan eventually cheats on her, noting that he had "grown bored of her quickly" and the two have a bitter breakup. It is her first and only relationship thus far.
  • Vee’s little sister Wonder moves to Portland, Oregon to attend Portland State University since she wanted to go to a college out of state.
  • Vee eventually chooses to move to Portland to be closer to her younger sister. She is hired to work at the Portland State University library and enrolls as a college student majoring in history to help gain a specialization at her new place of employment. She and her sister eventually move in together and become roommates to save money.
