I picked Tiana because I had a vision of her the moment I saw her name. She is Disney's first African American princess, she's beautiful, independent, and saucy. Then there's New Orleans and it leant itself to so many possibilities with her character concept...but I chose to couple the most mysterious and chilling elements of New Orleans for her, Voodoo and Vampires. Don't forget the frog.. she is fascinated with them, collects them, adorns herself with them. She doesn't understand why but it's the only thing that makes her feel human at all.
