Heather Prescott (born 1984) is a main character in Manchester Chronicles. A British-born graphics designer and photographer, Heather works for the fashion website FashionZeit, being one of its founders.
Heather was born in London, United Kingdom, to a British father and a mother of both Brazilian and Italian descent. When Heather was a child her family moved to Manchester, it is where her father's work ultimately took them. Heather's family was wealthy, with her attending private schools in her youth, though compared to her fellow students she was considered low on the financial totem pole. Due to her upbringing, Heather learned how to ride horses and also became familiar with firearms, in particular, those typically used for hunting. Interested in fashion, Heather ultimately attended the Royal College of Art in London, though she also studied abroad in Hong Kong.
After finishing school Heather met Sharon Wilcox, who was looking to start her own website with Petra Turner. Petra ended up betraying Sharon and starting Senfashional without her or Heather, so the pair in turn built FashionZeit. Having studied primarily photography as well as graphic design Heather effectively became the head of the website's art department, in turn meaning she had to supervise the interns recruited to help with production while Sharon focused on writers and office staff. Despite the daily frustrations of work, in particular, the eventual recruitment of Patricia Layton, Heather remained optimistic about her career.
In July of 2008, Heather first met Kieran Hawthorne after the pair were involved in a traffic accident outside of town. A month later the pair met again. Shortly after that Heather discovered, time was frozen. Lost and unsure of what to do, Heather struggled to survive in the frozen world until she ran into Kieran once more. Kieran taught Heather how to survive under the circumstances the pair bonded a bit, though she was quick to reject any notion of a romantic entanglement. The duo eventually discovered the site where Joanne Gallagher had destroyed the Winterborne Armband but only after holding hands were they able to unfreeze time. Upon realizing she had to be with Kieran to freeze and unfreeze time Heather tried to mend fences a bit more, it made easier when Kieran learned she was gay, but while Heather remains interested in using their new power and investigating what happened to them she's been unable to get Kieran to commit to anything.
