Biography

If it weren’t for her parents, folks might’ve called her “Restless Leg”.

Aisha “Death Roll” Card was adopted by Kenneth and Pauline Card at the age of 3. She suffered no sense of loss, without a recollection for those short previous years, but there was no mistaking the differences between opossum and alligators. The Cards thought the adoption talk, altogether, went rather smoothly – like so many children in the face of explanation, Aisha shrugged and said, “’kay.”

Then one day when the girl was 10, Pauline found a locked bathroom door, which led to blood all over the porcelain counter, scissors wrenched from her daughter’s hand, and frustrated sobbing. The hateful glare at her right ear in the sink, and the choked, “I j-just- want…to be like y-you an’ d-dad,” was something that would forever change how the Cards handled their daughter.

Her parents were never negligent, and being scooped up into an upper-middle class family left Aisha wanting for little. She never questioned her parents love, but she knew to someone out there, she hadn’t been worth keeping. So she sought to please her parents to the nth degree.

Which was difficult, because she wasn’t very good at academics.

She couldn’t focus. Too much energy, self-imposed expectations too high, Aisha struggled to maintain a B – B- average throughout her school career with the aid of tutorage and diligence.

But that energy.

Kickball, softball, freeze tag, touch football – Aisha played everything and excelled, a blur of teeth and tail on any court or field. She hissed like a gator to intimidate (and it worked until her classmates got used to her antics), and was too happy to feed into the image of “crazy girl” that her classmates had settled on. When Kenneth introduced her to basketball, however, all other activities were lost.

“I used to play as a kid – I was pretty good in high school,” her father boasted.

So Aisha became pretty good at basketball. Then very good. Then fiercely good. What’s more, her coaches assured her that if she continued to excel, she’d land scholarships left and right to make her parents proud with. Naturally, she became a terror on the court: fast and strong, stealing the ball from opponents with the ease of snatching grass from a field. She smiled wickedly, hissed, lashed her tail, and it wasn’t long before her teammates dubbed her, “Death Roll”.

To seal the image she’d created over her youth, and commemorate both her hard-earned graduation from high school and accomplished acceptance into Florida Everglade, Aisha requested a tattoo. The straight-laced Cards were less than enthused by the grandeur of the idea, but they had to admit…creating the aesthetic of an alligator tail over her own was certainly superior to finding her cutting her other ear off any time soon.

Once the scholarships rolled in for her athletic performance, Aisha’s goal became clear. She could go to college. She could blow all the other universities out of the water. …she could get so good, she’d get drafted to the FBA.

It was time to sink her teeth in.
