Back in 2017, when I was trying the Bust Shots thing again, I added Sarah Sasquatch from Archetype Academy to the mix!
This was just a while after I had originally brainstormed the comic in mid-to-late 2016.

Sarah is a sasquatch (duh)
She is slightly uncomfortable with the human world, but, she loves it.
Having grown up in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, she is utterly embarrassed by her “naked hippie” parents, and wants to integrate fully into the modern world.
The school's administration has assigned her a curriculum based on ecology and conservationism, considering her pedigree, but, Sarah is interested in anything but.
She'd rather have processed fast food, digital music and pretty clothes. She is very good at computers and tech, despite her surprisingly nimble fingers being way too big for traditional keyboards.
She is stuck firmly between the ‘Old Ways’ and the modern world.

Damn that's a good character. I'll bet she's gunning for an internship with the 'Soft.

I'll bet she blows crazy money each month on razors... there's some complicated self image discussions and discovery there.

Oh no, she has no self image issues. At least, no BODY issues.
She is a sasquatch and, for the most part, she's proud to be a sasquatch. But, having discovered the human world, she's "ashamed" that she didn't grow up with fancy clothes and technology and such. She learns voraciously, and is more afraid of being construed as a 'country bumpkin', or just some monster. She doesn't necessarily worry about being hairy.
She's very intelligent, but, she tries to be more sophisitcated than she is. She sometimes puts on a posh faux British accent, and is really into fashion - not to be trendy, just "fancy".
Her parents are your steroetypical nature-loving stoner hippies from the 60's with flowers in their braided (all over) hair, and are, essentially naked, which makes parents day mortifying for poor Sarah (who's birth name is actually "Sunbeam").
