I was told to design an ugly, depressing, miserable, lonely girl. So I came up with this goth chick on the left. They didn't want her to be a goth, so she was rejected. Then they said that she wasn't supposed to be necessarily UGLY, just desperately in love with the main character, but kinda homely. So I designed the frumpy chick in the middle here. She was also rejected. They wanted her to be older, a cougar. So I came up with the design on the right. They liked that one, but I would have preferred the design in the middle as the main character. We did use all the 3 designs. The 2 rejected characters were used as incidental characters.
