Okay, so in the Second Act of my story, one of my main characters, she's the youngest and is the "cute one", gets in a fight with the Big Bad's four underlings. She manages to defeat three of them, but can't take down the fourth. This fourth underling then proceeds to electrocute one half of her body with lightning, causing lightning scars on that side, and burn the other half, also scarring that side. This permanently scars her body, erasing that whole "cute one" status. It's not meant to bother her all that much, she grew up in a society where looks don't matter, at least she's still alive. This is meant to upset a couple of the other characters. This is important because it visually signifies that this character is different than when she started. She's also the bruiser of the group, and I personally think that bruisers and scars go together like the three animals from Homeward Bound. Oh right, it's also meant to show how she keeps going, doesn't matter if she's hurt or not. I just want to know, how do I handle this? I don't really have experience with disfigurement so I'm kind of working with a blind spot here. Is this overall unnecessary?
