Colin Henderson Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Name: Colin Henderson Pen Name: Vladimir Age: 25 Sexual Orientation: homosexual Appearance: Face Claim: Ryan Ross Personality: somewhat passive, chooses to pick his battles wisely, always looking to please others without letting them walk all over him; introverted, tends to isolate himself from others (especially when focusing on ideas for his stories); a bit on the hopeless romantic side; sarcastic; generally optimistic but can be cynical at times History: When Colin was a young boy, his favorite hobby was reading. Any book he could get his hands on, he devoured page by page, entranced and intrigued by the way words could be strung together to create whole worlds of people, creatures, and fairy tale things. These books transported him to magical places far away from his real life and home, away from his neglectful millionaire father and general hum-drum life. His dream was to one day be able to create his own magic, wield his own ink wand and with a flourish create his own worlds of words. After high school, Colin enrolled in college, majoring in Creative Writing at a university in the upper part of Los Angeles, California. After graduating, he went on to publish a few short stories and is now somewhat known in small circles. It was never easy for him to make friends, preferring his books and writing to human interaction. Though he is a loner, Colin is also somewhat of a hopeless romantic, and used to long for the day when he would meet someone who understood him and could relate to him. Everyone he came across didn't quite cut it, though, and he quickly gave up searching. Now he only focuses on his work and he is quite content with that. Dalton Atwell Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) [ n a m e ] Dalton Atwell [ a g e ] 28 [ o r i e n t a t i o n ] Bisexual [ p e r s o n a l i t y ] Beneath a swirling mass of anxiety and insecurity, Dalton is a passionate, creative and idealistic man. For the most part, he is laid-back and relaxed, the introverted mediator of his very loud and often unpredictable friend group, but nothing makes Dalton happier than a harmonious environment. He likes for things to be easy, and tries to avoid stress however and whenever he can. When left to his own devices, Dalton is creative and has a natural affinity with all things artistic. He plays a variety of musical instruments, works in various materials and has managed to find success in the art world when he sticks to a schedule. Dalton takes his art very seriously, and is often hard on himself when a project doesn't turn out the way he envisioned. Sometimes, Dalton's need for perfection leaves him with a great deal of disappointment. If a depression sets in, Dalton has been known to either retreat into himself, or indulge in destructive behaviors like hard partying and drugs. Those benders always leave him looking selfish and irresponsible. (Dalton is an INFP-T ) [ h i s t o r y ] Growing up with two wealthy parents, Dalton spent more time with a nanny than he ever did his mother or father. On the off chance that either paid any attention to him, it was always to shower him with gifts or money. From a young age, Dalton was the envy of the neighborhood, but while his friends went home to hugs and hot meals, Dalton suffered through missed birthdays and silence. As he grew, his disappointment turned into resentment and Dalton began to act out as a teenager. At first it was for attention, but he fell into a rebellious crowd at the beginning of high school and never looked back. It's a good thing that Dalton has a trust fund to pad his life and cushion his many falls, because most high school drop outs with no work skills don't make it very far in life. Like many things, however, Dalton became the exception to the rule and all of the time that he didn't spend in school was put to use through art. In his early twenties, sculpting finally started to pay off and Dalton began to make a name for himself in LA. It's the one thing that he's truly proud of, and is happy to leave his mark on the world in any way he can.
