Tenney Grant, the first released Contemporary Character.

Contemporary Characters is the semi-unofficial[1] term for the line of modern characters that, unlike the Girls of the Year (which were initially limited edition characters), will be available for extended periods of time before retirement. The line follows the stories of modern characters in modern settings much like the Girls of the Year.

The line was launched in 2017 with Tenney Grant and Logan Everett, followed shortly by Suzie Yang.
