Random thing about you?  I was raised vegetarian and have never eaten meat before. 

Superpower you’d like to have? Transforming into a dog so I can solve crimes by sniffing my way to the truth. (And teleportation.)

Perfect Saturday? Picking up a jasmine milk tea, taking a day trip somewhere beautiful, watching a good movie or show, and eating delicious food.
