Character: Tricia Martin

Allegedly a sweet and wonderful person who does amazing things. But we never get to see this, we’re only told by the Wakefields how she’s the only good one in the Martin family. Then she dies. So sad. Or it would be, if she had any personality traits beyond being very slim and pretty. Oh wait, they’re not traits. They’re descriptions.

The cover is blueish grey with orange text - a particularly horrible combination and the text is harder to read because each colour is very muted, so they don't pop against each other. Standard porthole cover, with Trisha Martin standing in the foreground visible from the ribs up, she has short chestnut hair and dark eyes. She's wearing an oversized blue shirt with a white collar that makes her look like a maid (not sure how we're supposed to infer this is a hard-drinking slut from such prissy attire). No pose, arms at sides. Behind her, one of the twins stands with her hand on her chin, looking somewhere between thoughtful and murderous. The hair implies it's Liz, but the vicious look in her eye says Jessica. She's wearing an orange tank top.
