Status: Married to the weed game
Birthday: April 20 1999
Horoscope Sign: Taurus
Her name is Lil’ Stony Redwood. Born in Garberville California, named after her grandfather, OG Stony. Her parents were hippies living somewhere in the emerald triangle. She grew up around mountains and stinky plants.
Her best childhood memories were when parents would wake her up at night to play hide and seek around the redwood trees. These late night games were fueled by their occasional acid trips before the needle addiction took over.
Lil’ Stony’s sadness from losing her parents started her depression and her personal belief to never smoke the plants she loved. She would rub CBD oils all over her hands when they would hurt just like her mother, the painter, would do when her wrists would hurt from painting. But she wouldn’t smoke, you never get high off your own supply.
She loved the family tradition of planting seeds, and growing weed with her trippy grandpa gave her life and allowed her to do whatever she wanted. At seventeen, she was exploring Los Angeles with her own car, without a license. By nineteen she drove to Colorado with her momma plants to start a new life. She was a rolling stone. Shy and quiet, only her plants understood her.
Her senses always on point, she eyeballs an ounce within a gram of accuracy. She uses her sense of smell to grow the smoothest strains. Even without smoking, she knew her weed was dank.
Weed gave her everything – except her parents back.
One day, gun in hand, turkey bags all around her, she laid there and asked why she worked so hard and tried to think about the meaning of her lonely life. Her suicidal thoughts and depression were taking over. She had two choices, end it or hit a joint and chill the fuck out.
She rolled a fat blunt like her uncle Blue Panda showed her, sparked it, and inhaled for the first time.
Stony laid quietly on the floor for hours. Her third eye flipped open and while her body floated, her life flashed her by. The smoke took over and she opened every turkey bag of every strain she had around her. She rolled blunt after blunt.
High as fuck, she thought about everything she had created – money, warehouses, grows, her doggies, and her loneliness. A new realization of her stoner world had opened up to her – she was a weed baby. She now understood her true calling – to show the world that plants heal everything, you don't need genetically made addictive pills to cure your body.
It's the time of the season......where we can all get high.
Status: Married to her boat
Horoscope Sign: Scorpio
Captain Bermuda is a British blonde babe with blue eyes. An explorer with a wild heart and ageless beauty, she loves the food of the seas – shrimp, oysters and caviar. She also likes the treasures of the land – coconut cream, red wine and chocolate cake!
She met Vampy’s boyfriend once – or maybe it was a few times. They met while they were sailing the seas, but he was just another sea fling.
She travels the oceans hoping to find a land of love and treasures. Though she hates water and never learned how to swim, she hopes to become an expert in swimming in the distant future. Until then, she will sink in to her boat like a true captain at heart.
Status: Still Deciding
Horoscope Sign: Aries
Born in Vanadzor, Armenia, raised in Glendale, California, Smooth loves hummus and strawberry smoothies. She drives European cars, drinks the most expensive wines, eats the finest food, and only wears the best designers. She only wants money, not love – not yet.
Smooth has always been a very smart young lady. She has immense passion for computers and technology. But her secret loves are credit cards, bank accounts, PIN numbers, and vaults filled with money.
She’s too smart for her own good. She always wears her oversized glasses, a perfect disguise to look innocent when she hacks major bank accounts, ATMs, and computer programs.
She is currently talking with a crazy teddy bear called Green Bear, he claims to be an urban farmer but she is so focused on her computer hacking, she isn’t even sure if she wants more than a fling.
Status: It’s Complicated
Horoscope Sign: Leo
With her pink hair and glossy hazel eyes, Vampy lives in Hollywood, California. She is Japanese and Italian and loves warm Saki with pizza smothered in tomato sauce and topped with raw, bloody meat.
She never experienced love and travels the world with her heart in her hand as her only companion. Her heart reminds her she isn’t totally heartless. She travels to save exotic birds from being taken captive, just like she almost was.
She was engaged in the 1920’s to the captain of the famous Titanic. But he went down with his ship in icy waters. While this tragedy shook the world, Vampy was in her hometown of Volterra, Italy. Every pretty girl was being taken and returning as vampires – which is how she became who she is now. Every few decades she meets a new captain, but it always gets complicated.
She loves taking selfies, shopping and watching the movie version of Titanic to remind her of her captain and why she dislikes boats. She always wears fantastic feathers to connect her to her birds.
Status: Not Sure
Horoscope Sign: Sagittarius
Originally from Paris, France, Wolfy now resides in Malibu, California. She has endless gardens full of fruits and vegetables that she grows and enjoys all year round. Her dream is to create interactive community gardens all across the world.
But on the full moon, she becomes a strange wolf creature and disappears to roam the streets of Los Angeles as a ferocious man-eater, hunting for predators. Those nights, the fruits and vegetables she usually devours are replaced by all types of bad men; women beaters, cheaters, and thugs.
Thankfully, she always wakes up in the middle of Grand Park’s watery fountain after those crazy nights. She is grateful for her pre-paid Uber account to bring her back home to her gardens.
Status: Daddy Issues
Horoscope Sign: Capricorn
Raised in the heat of Miami, Florida, in the heart of Little Haiti, Cakes grew up with her Haitian mother. The two bonded with love and strength. She learned to be an independent woman with values, self-respect, ethics, and high expectations. She can do anything she sets her mind to because she sees herself as a Queen with an invisible golden crown.
She has deadly curves, a sweet look and a sharp mind. She loves Remi hair and pedicures. She hates diets. She loves to eat pineapples, mangos, oranges, grapefruits, lobsters, lambi and grillot.
She is too strong and confident to settle for anything but the best, maybe because she never had a daddy. She never knew what wonders the genuine loving hug of a father brings to a young girl’s life. She was always too aware of the real world.
Guys have never been her cup of tea. She mentally breaks them down into pieces. Weak men are her pet peeve, but strong, tall, emotionless gentlemen are her weakness.
Nowadays she travels the world from penthouse to penthouse selling the perfect homes to people around the world. She recently has been accompanied by a little Blue Panda she found laying lonely on a side walk in the streets of Downtown LA.

Status: Trying to be social
Horoscope Sign: Taurus
Boxy is always ready to fight for what she believes in peacefully, but she’ll throw punches later. She is a bit anti-social because she has Asperger’s syndrome, a kind of autism, it gets kind of crazy at times. She has a hard time pronouncing the letter S. She’s sweet, loyal, and direct. She does not handle disappointment or disloyalty very well. If anyone by her side breaks her code of honor, she loses all feelings. She’s hard because she is so giving and righteous. When betrayed, she quietly retreats forever.
She carried resentment towards her mother. She always felt as though her mother should have been stronger. She should've not chosen to fall in love with the wrong men her whole life. Boxy's mother was in her prime when she had her. All her mother ever wanted was to give her a real family, a father.
The anger of not having a father to defend her from her abusive stepfather, the constant frustration she felt every time she remembered her stepfather, and how she wished she had the strength to destroy him every time he woke her up at night.
Her mother enrolled her in boxing classes after Boxy’s stepfather punched her, leaving her deaf in her right ear. She doesn’t know exactly why he punched her while her mother was at work, but she will never let a man hit her ever again. Boxy always has her guard up, she never removes the wraps from her hands, just incase she has to throw some punches. She always wears her favorite Muhammad Ali Adidas boots and rarely combs her hair.
Boxy is her mother’s keeper and protects her always. Her mom is a chef, so she always has boxes laying around the restaurant. One day, Boxy picked up a small cilantro box, took it home and decided to write all her insecurities, emotions, heartaches, and traumas on a piece of paper and put them inside the small box she found. In her troubled mind, the box was to hold everything that stopped her from moving on in life. She would make peace with her butt chin, tooth gap, freckles, bushy hair, abnormal height, boobs she never developed, wide hips, long arms, and all her endless insecurities.
Boxy has learned to deal with her feelings. No one owes her anything. No one has failed her. Her mother is perfect, her stepfather and father she never met had their reasons for their actions. She's nobody's punching bag, or second option.
Now she tells her friends, “Deal with your issues, come to peace with them, and put your feelings in an invisible box.”
From now on, her past will not obstruct her present.
Boxy is a dreamer, with a hard shield, immense drive and a loving heart. All she needs is her mother, her best friend and companion Russell, boxing gloves, oatmeal and almond milk.
She has a huge crush on this bear she recently met, but the way the horoscope is set up, and the stars are aligned Taurus women and Virgo bears are a mess. Fuck it, she’ll stay single forever unless the horoscope changes.
Horoscope Sign: Pisces

Close your eyes and ignore everything around you, Lil Stranger. It seems like a mighty long time, but the heart heals, and the mind becomes stronger. Don’t let anyone take your happiness. Walk away from what no longer makes you happy.
You got legs, Lil’ Stranger, use them.
