|“||Torley started out in SL as Torley Torgeson Sr., a young male avatar in his 20s who carried around a synth. Due to some crazy time warp in SL, Torley Torgeson Sr. was replaced by his daughter Torley Torgeson Jr. a few months after joining SL. Torley Jr. was for a time replaced by a Bunny Torley, but eventually came back and the current Torley is once again Torley Jr. (female). The cause of these odd "Torley Warp Holes" is unknown, but one thing that has stayed consistant through the variations of Torley is the fondness for watermelons and watermelon-colored objects (fluorescent pink and green).||”|
