Rita was named Sharita by her parents, Ebony and Jesse, but since then she is known as Rita. Her parents were not married at the time of her birth so she got her mother’s last name, Brown. Furthermore her parents ended their relationship while Rita was still a baby so she never really had any relationship with her father and was raised by her mum and older sister Cocoa.
She was always a quiet child that kept to herself, she like collecting rocks and gazing at stars. That was when her lifelong dream of going to space was born, a dream that had followed her into adulthood. She was always an honor roll student, and worked harder on her school obligations than her big sister spending countless hours alone in the library.
As she grew up however she made two friends with whom she is still very close, Phoiebe Santoro and Shirley Gradle. They could always speak for hours on the phone and spent a lot of time in and out of school together. When she was already in her teens her father tried to form a relationship with her but for Rita it was too late, she didn’t want anything with that man who had once abandoned her and her mother.
At the same time her mother got married, to Harald Prentiss, their first neighbor and Rita along with her mother moved in with him and his family. She never got close to Harald either. She disagreed on most things with him and could never accept him as a father figure but she did get close to his older kids, Tomas and Hannah.
Her mother’s marriage did not last long and before she knew it they were back in their old home. Her sister moved out, and their old room was redecorated and given to her brothers, Harry and Hazel. Since the boy’s grew fast there was less and less space for Rita.
Rita stayed until the boys were well into their teens and then moved in with her boyfriend since high school, the troublesome orphan Mortimer Goth. This ended after she found out about his cheating and she found comfort in her sister’s former love, Tomas Prentiss. They had a big and lovely wedding on the beach and afterwards moved to his house.
The marriage is a happy one, and they are parents of two little girls, Maja and Lena. The only thing Rita dreams about now is being an astronaut, but since school she had worked nowhere but the day spa.
