Character_NatashaNatasha Levine is a 23 year old sales rep for a large pharmaceutical company.   It’s the first job she’s ever had, and she loves it because she spends most of her time flirting with doctors and medical directors, and making the occasional sale or 200.

After dating her high school boyfriend, Eddie, all throughout college, Natasha is recently single, after catching Eddie, 25 and on the “Van Wilder” college plan, in bed with two frosh sorostitutes.   Fed up with college boys, she now prefers to date older men. ( She hasn’t realized that older men are just college boys grown up…which means they can pay their bills, don’t eat Ramen for dinner or subscribe to Maxim, and hide their bullshit much, much better.)

Her best friend is Bianca Jones, mostly because she makes the best wing girl.  When the two of them are out, they might have to buy their first drink.  But after that, pfff…the random dudes take care of it.  She’s seen every episode of Sex in the City 8 times, and had a lisp until she was 12.  (It comes back a little bit after her third cosmo.)

Note:  Swithching gears from the world of Colosseum X to do some character designs for upcoming characters in Over, my rom-com graphic novel.  Natasha and Bianca are small characters involved in a very funny upcoming bar scene.  I decided to flesh each of them out with a little more of their story.

    I have a question before I comment:
    How can she be a sales rep as her first job? Who would hire her?

    There are plenty of companies that hire entry-level pharmaceutical sales reps. In fact, if you went to a good school (Duke), have a tangentially related degree (Marketing and Business Communications), and are very pretty (the dudes dig her), you stand a good chance at getting hired…even in this economy.

    Mike,

    The most important thing is that you dress well, can spit a pitch, set up some good take out for the docs/nurses and it goes a long way if you are hot. In fact, hawtness is probably the best qualification to have if you’re going to pharm sales as a non medical professional. I hope I’ve offended someone.
