PERSONALITY

Fuckboy with Commitment Issues
The man often leaves broken hearts in his wake, for his relationship with girls are flimsy at best. He flirts with them, makes out with them, sometimes he may even have one night stands. But he makes it clear from early on that he only seeks to have fun, drawing a hard line on the sand when things get a little too serious for comfort. Despite what the rumors say about him, Kellen isn't a player, only getting sexually involved with one or two girls at a time. He never does this with the intent to lead anyone on.

Man on a Suicide Mission
Kellen treats his own life with careless disregard. He is a motorcycling, train-jumping, wall-climbing, flirting-with-death kind of guy. Impulsive and addicted to the thrill of danger, Kellen gets himself in a lot of risky and potentially illegal situations. So far, he's still alive. A miracle, to be sure, although not one he's not exactly happy about.

Anti-Authoritarian
A nuisance to his teachers and other authoritarian figures in his life. Growing up, his teachers gave him a hard time in school. It destroyed his self-esteem and made him depressed. This only worsened his attitude against his teachers, who he now harbors a deep resentment for.

Though he may lash out with his words at times, he is typically silently defiant. He refuses to follow orders, living only by the rules he sets for himself.

A Talented Thief
It began when his dad became hard-pressed for money. Kellen started stealing small things—ones that would easily escape people’s notice. His crimes then escalated as his confidence grew.

Business-Savvy Smuggler
If you need someone to hook you up with some drugs or alcohol in exchange for some dough, he’s your guy. Kellen knows many of the secret passageways in Abernathy Hall, having explored them quite thoroughly the past year.

BIOGRAPHY

For as long as Kellen could remember, he was the problem child. The bad boy. That one kid in school nobody ever thought would amount to anything.

From an early age, he was convinced that this was his destiny. He grew up in an environment that was a stranger to love and laughter, becoming desensitized to his parents’ ever-present fury. They were the prime example of a toxic relationship that never resulted into a physical altercation. Though it might as well have. They got pretty close at times.

His only good childhood memory involved the trees, or any high place he could find a solid grip on. He would climb them and watch the world from above; it seemed a far better place than the one that waited in his home.

Kellen also struggled in school. None of his peers liked him. His teachers believed him to be intentionally disruptive. He seemed incapable of sitting still and following instructions; it was out of his control. For the longest time, he believed there was something inherently wrong with him. His parents had asked him what was wrong with him. And with no other outlet nor support to turn to, he simply embraced his delinquency. If you wear your weakness like armor, no one can hurt you.

As he grew into his teens, his rebelliousness started to charm people more than it did repulse them. Perhaps puberty had a hand in it too; regardless, it was a welcome change. Suddenly, girls wanted to be around him. Everybody wanted to impress the guy that was hardly ever impressed. Soon, he was dating the most popular girl in school, Katie. Even now, her name leaves a sour taste in his mouth.

How exactly did the perfect goody two-shoes fall for the delinquent? It was like something out of one of those romance books. Or a dark fairytale, depending on how you look at it. The princess was not perfect, after all. She was anything but. Then again, neither was Kellen.

Behind closed doors, they were explosive.

Like his parents, who were now divorcing, Kellen and Katie fought with a fury unmatched. Everything needed to be argued over. There wasn’t a day that they didn’t find something to be upset about. Yet, they clung to each other like two venomous snakes in heat—yearning, suffocating, consuming.

Meanwhile, his dad was consumed by debt, one fueled by his increasing dependence on liquor and hookah. His wife had run off with a new man, leaving the shards of her broken family to gather dust. Kellen had never felt more betrayed and forgotten in his entire life, though he showed nothing by way of emotion.

Life was a struggle because of his father’s unemployment and debt. It was up to Kellen to take matters into his own hands. Being 15 and reckless, Kellen couldn’t hold down a part-time job. When Katie offered him money, he refused. This left him with few options. He took the shortcut.

He began stealing. He started small at first, taking only what was necessary. But overtime, as he grew better, he also grew more bold. Greed got the best of him; and with the extra money in his pockets, he embraced his newfound addiction: weed.

It was around this time that he joined a band as its lead guitarist. There, he met the person who would soon become his best mate, a drummer by the name of Alex. It was he that introduced Kellen and Katie to marijuana, though it wasn’t long before they graduated to the harder drugs.

He grew addicted.

ONE MORE LINE AND I'M
SUPERHUMAN


II.

One fateful day—a day Kellen likes to pretend never happened—Katie cheated on him.

For some reason, the idiots had left the door unlocked, and Kellen walked in on his girlfriend blowing his best friend. Both boys came home with a black eye that day, but only one came home with the girl.

He seethed with resentment. Everyone up to this point had failed him in some fashion or other. Everyone had betrayed him. Overcome with heartbreak, he sought refuge in doing what he did best: starting trouble. He hung out with a new crowd that made a sport out of tempting death. They did all sorts of dangerous and illegal things, like jumping out of the way of a moving train, balancing on rooftops and concrete fences, speeding, mailboxing, you-name-it. In school, he was the guy you stayed away from. The guy who wouldn’t hesitate to start a fight if you so much as get into his space.

It wasn’t long before he was expelled.

Kellen’s mom heard about this, and for the first time in months she reached out to him, driven by a maternal instinct that had been dormant for so long. Come live with Dan and I, she said over the phone, You can go to a new school. It’ll be good for you.

But his father did not like this suggestion. He hurled a beer bottle at the door in his alcohol-induced rage, telling Kellen that he had betrayed him. I better not see your face again. Those were his parting words.

With nowhere else to go, Kellen moved in with his mom and her new husband, Dan. They had two children, both of which were equally spoiled and mean. They made a point of showing that they didn’t like their new step-brother, and Kellen made a point of showing he didn’t care. Meanwhile, Dan would always find an opportunity to lecture Kellen, believing the latter to be a bad influence on his children. The boy would always be excluded from family outings and vacations. After all, he was “nothing but a migraine and a recipe for disaster".

This was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Fueled by a rage like no other, Kellen threw a party at their mansion while they were away, inviting half the town to do the most decadent deeds. Dan came home to his house trashed and several of the family’s most prized possessions missing. Unable to defend her son any longer, Kellen’s mother sent him to boarding school as insisted by her husband.

And so Kellen was shipped to Grimsworth School like unwanted garbage. It seemed almost deliberate how it just happened to be the farthest and perhaps most secluded place in existence. They might as well have sent him away to Mars.

Except he didn’t last very long. Halfway into the school year, Kellen just stopped showing up to class. Everyone wondered whatever happened to the brooding boy at the back of the classroom. There were rumors aplenty following his disappearance. They said he was dead. Someone said he’d murdered somebody and gotten himself imprisoned. They were all lies, of course.

This year, Kellen is finally returning after a long break.

And he is back with a vengeance.

BIOGRAPHY

Before Alistair was even born, his entire life was already laid out for him. Growing up, he did everything he could to meet his family’s expectations, as the alternative meant the worst sort of punishments. He has become something of an overachiever as a result, excelling in all his classes and taking on too many responsibilities than he can reasonably handle. By any means, he must succeed in everything he does. For when something goes awry, the first person he blames is himself.

It is a good thing he hardly gets any sleep at night; it gives him time to do the work that he otherwise wouldn’t have time to do. An over thinker, he dwells far too long on one task before moving on to the next. He is endlessly preoccupied with the little details, worried about the repercussions despite being fully aware he’s being irrational. This is what is clearly a product of seventeen long years of trauma.

As with anyone that is born into a tumultuous and abusive environment, Alistair holds many scars—both physical and mental—from his childhood. He exhibits all the telltale signs of one that suffers from a panic disorder. He expects the worst to happen everyday, suffering from a persistent dread that never left him since he was a child. Mornings are especially difficult to wake up to. At night it is hard to sleep. He would wake up in the early morning when dawn has not yet broken, sweating and heart beating out of his chest, each time thinking he is about to draw his last breath.

Try as he might to hold himself with an air of dignity and cold, calculated composure, if you look closely, the cracks of his facade show through. It might show itself now and then in the twitching of his eye, or his trembling hands, or his shaky breath. Yet, he would never admit the truth, feeling that it is a sign of weakness.

After all, Alistair is not as aloof as he would like to be. Though he is at times insensitive in his actions and words (all thanks to his father and grandfather’s example), he still has a compassionate heart. One that would still choose good over evil and help those who are in need of it. Alistair believes that this is all thanks to his siblings. If it weren’t for them, he would have probably ended up just like the men before him.

OTHERS

The Skull - One of Alistair’s most prized possessions. It is with him quite often, though he hides it in his bag to avoid the inquisitive gazes of onlookers. He understands it must look weird to be bringing around a skull in school, but there’s a good reason why he’s so attached to it.

A Helping Hand - When Alistair was thirteen, he heard the cries of a troubled girl in the forest. At first, he thought he was just hearing things. Then he saw her, and he knew she had to be real.

He hesitated, remembering his vows. She’s not meant to be in this forest. If he just left her here, she would be forever lost, and the Founding Families would be safe. But emotion won over reason. Taking her by the hand, he showed her to safety. The girl was thankful, but all the while Alistair feared for his life. Technically, he didn’t break his vow. However, if his grandfather were to find out about this, he would be in great trouble.

Five years passed without his grandfather knowing. Now, Alistair sees the girl’s face in school everyday. The memory of what he did haunts him still, but he knows that the alternative would have broken his soul.

Piano - He and his sister have a shared love for music. When they were children, they would do duets, with Alistair playing the piano and Serena playing the violin. This was how they drowned out the sounds of their father’s abuse against their mother. Alistair is exceptionally good at playing the piano. He is partial to the likes of Rachmaninoff and Beethoven, drawn to their tragic lives because they mirror his own.

Father (Amos Blackbourne) - A bitter man because of his broken ambitions. Emasculated by his grandfather and treated as though he were unimportant by the other Founding Families, Amos has resorted to taking out his anger on his wife and children.

Despite Amos’ treatment of him, Alistair still yearns for his approval and love. This only makes him disgusted with himself. Why does he still harbor a love for a father that is largely absent and hurtful?

Little Brother (Avery Blackbourne) - Years ago, Serena and Alistair made a pact: they would try their best to shelter their youngest brother from their father’s abuse. If neither of them couldn’t have a normal childhood, Avery should at least have one.

And so, whenever Avery would do something he wasn’t meant to do, Serena and Alistair would be there to save him. [TW: ABUSE] They would often take the blame, bracing the beatings with as much courage they could muster. They would take Avery outdoors or play music for him while it rained hellfire in the master bedroom, doing the best they can to distract him from all the sadness, the hurt, and the confusion.

But it was not enough to save him.

Alistair believes it was a direct consequence of his actions that led to Avery’s muteness. He still blames himself constantly. Even worse, Serena blames him too. And occasionally, he would have nightmares of Avery’s pale, sleeping face through an open casket. Gone forever, without him being able to stop it.

Outsiders - He does not care to admit it, but he is envious of the Outsiders.

Though they may not all have perfect lives, it is still—without a shadow of a doubt—better than his. At least they have a choice. At least they can escape whatever prison encases them.

BIOGRAPHY

Once, his words had teeth.

For most of his childhood, Avery was known to be loud, outspoken, and rather extraverted. It wasn’t until an incident after his thirteen birthday that his personality suddenly experienced a metamorphosis. The incident--which remained a mystery to everyone but the Founding Families--rendered him mute. This greatly contributed to the undoing of his self-esteem. Avery became meek. Withdrawn. A broken husk of what he used to be.

They called him weak. And indeed, physically, he was no force to be reckoned with. Socially, he was at the bottom of the food chain. Mentally, the fragments of his trauma still lingered. But he adapted.

He used his own weaknesses to his advantage. By seeming small and unimportant, his presence largely went unnoticed. Avery dedicated himself to the shadows: listening, observing, scheming. He looked to the books for knowledge--gravitating towards politics and history--seeking to dismantle the foundations upon which the Founding Families had built their kingdom...

All the while blending in the background like a snake in the grass.

They wouldn’t know what bit them.

Senior

Height:
5'5"

Residence Hall:
Abernathy Hall

Electives:
Visual Arts, International Relations

Extra-curricular Activities:
Board Games Club, Track & Field

PERSONALITY

Joan is, and has always been, terrible at making friends. Not only is she awkward around people she doesn't know, she comes across as rather aloof, making her seem intimidating or even mean to those who don’t know her well.

Her luck, or lack thereof, is what makes her so unpopular among her peers. For an aggressive girl, she is also quite clumsy, prone to tripping over her own feet or finding herself in the most ridiculous situations. She has a natural inclination towards trouble, something that has never failed to make her life both exciting and aggravating at the same time.

Once someone can get past her barriers, however, they would find Joan to be rather well-meaning and easy-going, though she's not without a little spice with her recklessness and penchant for swearing. Loyal and chivalrous, she would stand by her friends through thick and thin. She is also a sensitive soul, easily hurt and more inclined to cry than she’d care to admit.

BIOGRAPHY

Born in Toronto to a family of redheads, Joan had always felt like an outsider. And in some ways, her family considered her one too. The eldest child, she was the unexpected product of a one-night-stand between her now-married mother and a man who ceases to be remembered. A wistful reminder of that one brief fling, on a hot summer day long ago.

“You look more and more like your father each day,” her relatives would say. Apparently, she had inherited his personality, too. Among the even-tempered Lamberts, she was the vocal one. The one with the smart mouth and a temper to boot. Because she was so different, she started to develop an irrational hatred towards her father growing up—one that wasn’t helped by the many condescending stories she’d heard about him.

In truth, she kind of hated herself too.

Looking for an escape from a home she didn’t feel a part of, Joan was relieved when she got her acceptance letter to Grimsworth. The school also offered a scholarship, which just made it all the much more appealing.

She packed her bags and booked the first flight out to Grimsby. After all, what did she have to lose?

OTHERS

Appearance:
Joan bears a striking resemblance to her estranged father: green eyes, slanting eyebrows, straight black hair, and skinny stature. In terms of clothes, Joan tends to a monochromatic style, emphasizing her paleness. She is partial to acid wash jeans, oversized flannel or black denim jackets, band tees, and doc martens.

Year:
Senior

Height:
6'5" ft

Residence Hall:
Venture

Electives:
International Relations | Political Science |

Extra-curricular Activities:
Newspaper Club | International Relations Club | Fencing |

PERSONALITY

Ezekiel isn’t far from his appearance in manner of strictness. He’s blunt but polite. Doesn’t like the lower-class, let alone mingling with them; finding they pollute the very air of the school halls.

Yet, he’s not strict enough from stopping himself with mingling with the lower-class for sexual relations. Merely, he looks at the Outsider class women as whores. Women that he demands utmost respect from because they should be grateful to even have the school board take notice in their useless existence. Let alone, allow them to attend the halls among the classy and perfected nobility.

Yes, he has insultingly paid an Outsider for sex after finishing. In other cases, he’s threatened others to keep quiet.

Zeke isn’t afraid to remove obstacles from his line of sight. Or that of his friends. In the matter of personal growth and gain.
By no means is he stupid. His best subjects follow; language, sciences and mathematics. Other subjects, Zeke maintains a respectable grade. But is always disgusted when the likes of an Outsider passes him in the marks.

Moments like these are when his temper shines through. He’s not one to pass up frightening someone into hiding their talents, or forcing them to bottle it for the sake of their family.

Zeke’s masculine side is often described as toxic by one of his newer peers and infuriating Outsider, Calista Shaw.

BIOGRAPHY

Born with a silver spoon in Zeke’s mouth doesn’t seem to cut it. This boy probably had something platinum in his mouth from the moment he was born, raised by two disgustingly rich and old school Grimsby parents who married by their own parents' arrangements.

Ezekiel knew from a young age that his marriage would be planned in a similar instance. For the mere purpose of pure bloodline, keeping it within the elitist families of the mysterious and secretive town.

Thus, Outsiders who were free to whatever emotion and love disgusted him from a young age. Not that he ever likes them mingling.

A hatred for the lower class taught by his family but experienced first hand out of jealousy.

What only seemed to be amplified by a family secret: the half-class spawn his father created with a Outsider whore. Someone from a class not of their own.

His half-sister.

A scorn on his family tree, much like the mother that tried to sell the position of the child’s legitimacy. Or the fact she carried Florence blood within veins--this very scorn that would become one among the Outsiders in Grimsby.

Zeke prides his time between trying to be his utter best and nothing less. To venting his frustrations out on sexual partners and navigating the social flock for a suitable bride of breeding.

OTHERS

Appearance - Ezekiel Florence has characteristically cold blue-gray eyes that never seem to shift from the listless or void of emotion. His presented coldness isn’t lessened by the long scar over his right eye.

Hair is blonde, impeccably groomed. Long at the top and short on the sides. Always slicked back with product, as if everyday was a formal event.

His posture is always strong and strict, kept to a level of discipline befitting his station and air. Something that he never understands is when the lower class don’t show themselves in a manner of respect.

Everything Zeke wears screams metrosexual. Looking good for himself and the people around him is extremely important. After all, he needs to present well for any potential ladies that could marry into his family line. Ushering in a security for his family and the bloodline.

The only break from his majority of traditional dress and appearance is the single six gauge stretcher. It’s an ivory and wood mix. A carved crest of his family, exposing where his true loyalties are.

PERSONALITY

Percy is very quietly spoken. Most of her dialogue or thoughts don’t pass her mind. Considerably rather anxious and awkward, Miss Freling has lived a life manipulated by her mother. Something that she’s both aware of in some circumstances and in others,

She merely isn’t.

Merely a girl who likes fairytales, because they aren’t real. She’s been trapped in some sort of wild play in motion from the moment she was born.

The lack of a stable parental figure has led this girl to second-guessing most things in her life, even the rare kindness from others. Considering her mother has always lived by the kindnesses being an actor and taught her child the same.

There is one instance in her life she’s never questioned a momentary kindness. In a boy. Now, she’s found herself living out a whimsical puppy-like crush for that moment. He took her away from a situation of danger, something she knows her mother would have never done.

For the most part, Percy likes to keep to herself and not raise any conflict. She’s a lover of art, music and reading. Perfectly polite and educated in the way of respecting people.

Her imagination is her safe place amongst all the chaos her mother raises.

BIOGRAPHY

Born to a single mother who was a starlet actress, without the knowledge of her father, seemed to be the designed fate of Persephone. She was ruled and shaped to be one person for the sake of her mother for the personal goals and wishes of the starlet that wanted something more.

So, she taught her daughter everything she wanted, made sure she was polite and reared up well.

All the while dangling little things over the young girl’s head.

Little questions that came with time for most children to a single parent.
Who was her daddy? What was he like? Did mama leave him? Did Percy make daddy mad and that’s why he’s not here?

Not once was a question answered.

Everything was like a little game to her mother. So, Persephone learnt to live a second life in the books she read. Or in the clothes she made in moments of privacy. Tucked away from her mother’s influence.

Everything became rather strange the moment she moved to Grimsby. A strangeness and terror she couldn’t express or explain. Something that led her to being helped by a boy, and since he’s been something like a prince to her. Straight out of a tale she’d tuck herself away to read.

Her acceptance into Grimsworth came with a high paid cash price from her mother.

OTHERS

Appearance - Persephone has fair pale skin, rosy cheeks and innocent eyes. Like her mother, she has the woman’s appealing features: pale skin, high cheekbones and sharp jaw. Yet, has inherited her father’s grey-green eyes.

Her hair has always been kept long, beautiful, and healthy--doll-like with the way her mother liked Percy to keep it. Combed down and brushed into impossibly complex styles and often fashioned with flowers entangled in her locks.

Those moments were the rare moments of freedom where Persephone chose what she liked. Flowers could be a normal range of whatever was in season. Normally, she liked the shades in violet-blue, blush pink and anything soft like her complexion.

Her attires are often selected by her mother, who holds a classy and modest aesthetic. As if she was always to draw the attention of some people. Not all. A rather selective bunch for that matter.

Alone, Persephone likes to explore the whimsical but classy side of dated fashions: flowy dresses, flowers, pastel colours, little waist trainers with painted canvas desires.

Due to Persephone’s rather classic and dated fashions--taking interest in centuries long past and making them modernised--she crafts most of her favourite dresses and outfits.

For the most part, when it’s her dearest mother in charge of her wardrobe she follows the light academia aesthetic.

PERSONALITY

Loud and boisterous is one of the best ways to explain Cyrus’s manner. She loves a good laugh. Her friends mean the world to her.

Wild and energetic, exceedingly loyal almost to the point it’s a flaw. Some could say her competitive nature is also a flaw. She feels the need to strive for the best rank. Something that could burn away the need to be seen by one.

Where Cyrus is confident and open with her friends, she openly lacks when it comes to talking with boys. Not many would know… But Cyrus is actually a virgin. It’s something she wants to save for the right time and moment.

Not that she hasn’t experienced everything. This girl is a part of the party scene. Just never felt comfortable being fully vulnerable in her body with someone else.

Cyrus has always struggled with the ideals of what a girl should be, given the family background she came from. Her mother’s side was rich and posh. Her father’s side were farmers from way back when. Rus has always been more comfortable dirty than glossed up and pretty.

Part of her deep down doesn’t feel like she belongs because of these feelings either. The progression of these feelings has been a more recent thing, given she’s finally showing some level of interest in intimate relationships. Or a boy.

A lot of Cyrus is hidden behind false confidences. The need to fill some void so far away from home. To be wanted and liked.

BIOGRAPHY

Born April 25th, on one of the many days of mourning in her nation’s history, Cyrus was the youngest of a set of twins. A pair that helped mend the divide between their mother’s family after her parents didn’t approve of the match of a lowly farmer.

In an attempt to watch their grandchildren grow, paths and bridges were mended. Yet, it was apparent that the rift still lingered between mother and grandparents.

The twins were taught the life of the farmer and sports fanatics for their dad; but, on the other hand, were dragged out too long tiresome dinners with the grandparents. Many on occasion ending in either sibling getting fed up with the formalities and pulling a little prank. Or several.

The pair was never apologetic in the slightest for their behaviour.

Charged with a newfound need to provide for the last hopes in their grandchildren, schooling was largely dictated by the older pair. Going so far as to blackmail Mr and Mrs Grey about reporting the nuisances that their children were. How a lack of parenting and guidance would boast well to have the pair taken into their care, leaving the couple to the hard decision of having their children boarded at schools to allow them to become prime and cultured individuals.

Many schools around Australia were the pair sent to in the hopes of settling them down. But the straw was pulled and the final die cast. At the beginning of their high school careers, they were accepted into Grimsworth without their first knowledge, leaving a foul and sour taste in Cyrus’s mouth.

This fueled a wave of anger towards her parents for not fighting hard enough, and her grandparents for abusing their rights and forcibly making her stray far from home. Something that started a wave of loneliness and longing within Cyrus. A feeling she’d never even mention to her brother.

Because even with her brother, Cyrus felt so abandoned and thrown away by that treatment.

The friends she made in the time attending Grimsworth became a sort of makeshift family. In times where family interfered with her returning home in the break (grandparents), Cyrus found herself often looking for someone to stay with over the break. She offered to work part-time to cover any cost of rent and food while staying there.

It allowed her to mostly bend her energy and anger, the bottled up feelings of angst into healthy outlets in her sport. Allowing her for once to have things slip away.
Even with the time passing, she found herself liking a guy… way out of her league. Too nice and probably too good her a girl like her. But her little puppy crush couldn’t be helped in the least. It wasn’t pathetic enough to be writing her journals…

This isn’t a teen rom-com.

OTHERS

Appearance - Cyrus is above average in height for her home country of Australia., standing shy of her twin brother’s height. Characteristically, she has a longer face, high cheekbones and cut jaw. Like her mother, she inherited the brown almond-shaped eyes from that side of the family.

Cyrus’s lips are full and equal in shape/fullness, often chapped. The vanity of beauty products and other rituals to keep herself clear-faced. Most of the time her skin looks rather weathered due to her intense love for her sport and the need to constantly be moving.

She has the characteristic brown hair like her older twin. Hers is kept long and often wild. More often kept in a windblown style.

Her usual clothing style seems rather gender-neutral. There’s one single band around her neck, that she wears almost all the time offering a choker-like look. It’s the only trace of colour to Cyrus’s clothing and colour palette.

Most of her clothing follows the line of browns, greys, creams, tan tones.

Cyrus wears mostly slacks and loose shirts hanging limp around her body. School is for the most part when she has some pop of colour in her appearance--largely, the red trim and accents from the uniform. There are moments where she wants to dress up a little more and explore style options. But then Cyrus finds that would take too much effort.

BIOGRAPHY

Lauren was born into a moderately large family in the Scottish Highlands. This is where Laurie spent the larger part of her social development age. Before the large family moved to the states.

Money was by no means plentiful in a family of nine.

The move to the states was what had been seen to be the downfall of the Harrisons. Her father was unable to hold a stable job, mother at home with a number of young children.

Coping was the furthest way of describing the desperate family.

Things got particularly bad for Lauren and her siblings when their father fell onto a former bad habit, picked up in his teenage years. Drug use. Some of her brothers started working on the down low to help bring money in.

Others stole to put food on the table.

Mrs Harrison fell into illegal prostitution. The night she was booked by the police. Lauren and her siblings were found home unsupervised.

Sparking a large investigation of her family. Later finding all the children would be put into the foster care system. Which leads to them being separated within the system.

Lauren received her first forms of formal education from this point and onward. Though, it was discovered that she was studious, within the right environment. Techniques for her way of education are heavily run and supported by Lauren on the ground of needing some form of control. Without her parents and brothers.

When she reached high-school age, she was picked up by Grimsworth as a pity scholarship. Although the girl had some level of smarts to cover herself. She wasn’t at the level of most elite students.

She finds herself most at home in the library or under a tree in the courtyard. If football practice isn’t on she’s at the bleachers. Always loves playing card games and various board games.

The biggest bane of her high-school experience is all the reading and writing, due to her struggles with dysgraphia and dyslexia.

OTHERS

Appearance - Lauren is below average height for her age, but the Harrison women never grow very tall. She has vivid wild red hair that is always bunched up into a ponytail or messy bun. Which always looks like it’s trying to escape the ties it’s in.

Due to poor eye-sight, her dark green eyes are always covered by “coke bottle” thick glasses. Rounded frames make her features seem more accentuated. Drawing out the traditional geeky standard: big glasses, slightly crooked teeth and freckle kissed cheeks.

Her attire normally always settles on thrift store chic or what your granny would have worn. Paired with a random black velvet choker she found and thought was cute. On the odd occasion, she fills in her brows and puts a nice shade of gloss on.

She hopes to find a way to fit in a little more, but struggles to separate herself from who she is…

PERSONALITY

Miss Shaw is quite quick-tempered or snarky. For the most part, it has become a defence in the environment among the social elite.

She’s always quick with a comeback, never one to back down from a fight or argument. Some would call her stubborn for this. Calista would see it as being assertive. Standing up for her beliefs and views, even if this means calling someone out; in the rudest way possible at times.

Example: I’m sorry I told you the truth you stupid fucking bitch.

She doesn’t have the time for people and their bitchiness. Drama amuses her, but only when she’s not involved. Given her personality is like being brushed backwards with a thistle bush, it’s a little difficult to avoid.

Among the classic sass and temper she presents with, Calista has a little secret. Her love with the ridiculous smutty novels a forty-something-year-old woman would read. Something that would take only a few hours to read, the main love interest is Greek God-like and for that fact, baseline fiction. Since the presence of men and women in her life have been nothing but baseless sex and more effort than it’s worth.

In most ways, the effort is only expelled in her appearance, witty and bitchy comebacks, maintaining the colouring of her hair, and attempting to get under people’s skin.

BIOGRAPHY

Calista was born to a pair on the road. Exposed to a life of travel, it meant she was raised on the wilder side. Discipline seems to stem further down the line in regard to her free-minded parents.

Largely home-schooled due to the movement of her parents and lack of conventional upbringing, it was a wonder that Calista was accepted under the scholarship offered in high school as a late entry. She had high enough scores.

Of course, she didn’t always have her wild appearance. This was something that became a profound transformation of sorts due to the cruelty of other children she’d been around in the past. Plus, the pressures of living among the rich. Calista changed up her appearance, becoming more comfortable in the alternative fashions. Things that would make the normally conservative families prune.

As a whole, she’s a new arrival among the schooling community. So, she doesn’t entirely know what to expect from the other students. Who would be considered friend or foes?

Not that she cares too much about what people think about her. Even if she says something a little mean, it’s not like she’ll lose sleep over it.

Calista is very unapologetic about who she is.

OTHERS

Appearance - Calista is most at home in an outfit suited better to style than comfort, especially among the halls of Grimsworth and the elitist families of Grimsby itself.

She enjoys the outspoken sense of style that appeals to her body’s sculpture. What naturally would be defined asset wise, bringing to mind her curves. Mostly by the usage of underbust corsets, tapering her middle to define the waist.

Following the whimsical influence of her mother-- a flower child, Calista likes to amp the wild and free vibe up with her bleached then dyed sky blue hair, heavily accented by her soft makeup and doll-like complexion. Her colour palette tends to more or less lean toward the softer shade or the neutral tones, given her makeup and hair is the biggest attraction. This includes the crescent moon that she has drawn over her perfectly shaped brow.

Showing a little love for the forces of nature she adores, she is largely drawn to the oddities that the moon and stars hold.

Unexplained. Mysterious. Vain. Unapologetic. Those are the stars to her.

Calista has fair alabaster skin, often flushed at the cheeks. But it could be the illusion of her blush. She has a count of five beauty marks; two on her face, three on her chest. The three at her chest are appropriately placed and run across the slight jut of her collarbones, only seen when wearing off-shoulder shirts.

In moments of privacy is where Calista wears singlets, flowy shorts or sweatpants. Both this and the encounter of her without make-up is a rare one.

PERSONALITY

Warm and friendly one minute, ruthless fighter the next... Her shifting and unpredictable personality can leave those around her at a loss for words to describe her. But in rare, private moments, Candy casts off her facade and the layers of intrigue that come with it, and shows her authentic self.

She often describes herself as "kind of a bad guy", living for the thrill of a fight and causing chaos. She finds great joy tipping over the scales and fucking up the hierarchy.

She enjoys pranking people and despises sitting around and doing nothing, as she wishes to live her life to the fullest. Due to her eccentric and off the wall personality, she might have left a negative first impression.

Despite her negative impressions, she is quite intelligent and naturally curious. She doesn't know what a personal space is and tends to invade one's comfort zone.

Because of her pride, Candy is exceptionally reliable at accomplishing the tasks given to her, no matter how difficult they may be as long as it doesn't go against her values.

She greatly dedicates herself to those she cares about wholeheartedly.
BIOGRAPHY

Candy was born into a poor household with a loving dad, kind mom, and four older siblings. Albeit poor, they lived their life to the fullest. Everything was great until her mom cheated on her dad.

It was a mistake. She was nine during that time. Her and her oldest brother were out and about when they saw a glimpse of their mom kissing another man that isn't her dad. She didn't know what it meant at that time though she knew that her oldest brother was mad.

When her mother went home, chaos ensued. Candy couldn't remember the details but all she heard was shouting, crying and the sound of glasses breaking.

It didn't take long for her parents to get divorced. She was thankful that her brothers explained what was going on though she did not appreciate being left alone with her mom.

Candy got separated from her brothers. She was the only one who ended up with her mom.

Since then her life has been miserable. Her mom became different: always drinking, pricking needles, barely at home. Her only refuge during that time was her hobby. She was lucky enough for her mom to let her continue sculpting.

As years went on, things got worse. She could barely keep her communication with her older brothers due to them moving around a lot. Her mom also began abusing her for petty little things. She tried her best to appease her mom but it only made things harder for her. Her mother started breaking her sculptures, throwing away her materials.

Candy was barely hanging on by a thread until her oldest brother found her. He was nice enough to provide for her; going as far as offering to give her a proper education. Of course, Candy didn't hesitate to say yes.

That's how she got tangled up into Grimsworth. A mysterious school far away where she can start anew.

OTHERS

Appearance:
Candy is a doll covered in scars.

She is a young woman that possesses a short stature. She constantly dyed her blonde hair into platinum white, to greatly compliment her honey amber eyes.

Albeit, lithe and frail looking, Candy is not a damsel in distress. In fact, she is the knight that will slay the dragon.

Her arms are strong enough to pack a punch. Her hands are calloused and covered in scars due to her sculptures: working with wood, clay, and marble as her medium. She has scars on her knees as well from playing too hard with her brothers when she was a child.

Her sense of style greatly revolves around comfort. She doesn't like wearing tight fitting clothes or anything that can hinder her movements. Her usual casual ensemble is a turtleneck paired with jeans and boots.

Likes & Dislikes:
  • Roughhousing. Candy loves to play around! Her father didn't raise her as a bitch nor does her brother go easy on her just because she's a girl.
  • Bread. Her day is not complete if she doesn't eat bread. It's a staple.
  • Furniture. Candy appreciates great craftsmanship.
  • Glasswares. Candy feels uncomfortable around it. She doesn't know why she has an urge to break one whenever she sees it.
    People. But only those who are extremely against her attitude. She's not going to fit a mold just because it's improper for a girl. Fuck society. Fuck social constructs.

Hobbies:
  • Sculpting. Candy is great with her hands! She mostly spends her free time carving wood or sculpting clay. She enjoys creating anything with it.
  • Taekwondo. A hobby she learned from her brothers.
  • Day drinking and cigarettes. It isn't considered a hobby but Candy often spends her free time with a bottle of alcohol in hand or a cigarette between her teeth.

Electives:
Psychology | Culinary Arts | Latin III

Extra-curricular Activities:

PERSONALITY

An intelligent, confident, silver-tongued woman, Aoife is not afraid to do anything to get what she wants and is not above any kind of foul play. She will readily cheat to gain an advantage. She is highly adept at lying and manipulating people; and apathetic to the suffering of others. She is not averse to disposing of those who get in her way and is not easily intimidated, usually speaking to others directly and arrogantly. She cares little for others unless they are part of her inner circle. She considers others as tools, something she can sacrifice to get what she wants.

She can be easily angered on some occasions when things will not go according to plan. She is a sore loser, a hypocrite, and someone who will never admit her faults.

She is perfectly elegant in appearance, with a doll-like face that tapers down to a small chin and well-maintained brows that frame her eyes. Her blue eyes, so electric they could light up Christmas lights, are one of her defining features: they are an impossibly pale and lucid color that is at once mesmerizing and frightening to behold. Her other defining feature is her luscious red curls that are often styled half up - half down hairstyle.

She has a fair complexion that is well maintained. She is obsessed with taking the utmost care of her skin: making sure to do her skincare and apply sunscreen religiously.

Aoife has an elegant fashion style: preferring to wear skirts or dresses instead of pants. She doesn't like to wear jewelry though she can never be seen without her black ribbon choker.

OTHERS

Preferences:
  • Tea. Aoife enjoys anything related to tea. In fact, she’s quite obsessed with it. She makes her own blend.
  • Reading books. Literate and academic, the heiress of Sheridan spends most of her free time with a book in hand.
  • Flowers. Aoife appreciates beauty when it comes to flowers. She also finds it fascinating that flowers can be used for communication.
  • The sun. Aoife does not appreciate how bright it is and how it can burn her skin. Sunny days are enjoyable only if she is under a shade or indoors.
  • Rudeness. Her blood boils easily when someone is rude to her. She couldn’t understand how someone would dare treat her with such a primitive attitude.
  • Outsiders. Need she say more? Aoife thinks they should not exist nor be admitted. They do nothing but ruin the prestige and exclusivity of their school.

Hobbies:
  • Horticulture and Gardening. Surprisingly, Aoife enjoys growing plants and is knowledgeable about the subject. She often uses her plants for tea.
  • Painting and Embroidery. Her mother insisted for her to learn the craft that she soon found enjoyable. She finds it relaxing to keep her hands busy.
  • Fencing. The hobby which her father asked her to do. She despised the activity until she realized that it is a great stress reliever.

Height:
5'7"

Residence Hall:

Electives:
Music Theory, Latin III

Extra-curricular Activities:
Fencing, Orchestra (Violin)

PERSONALITY

Serena, second born of the Blackbourne children, has always had to live by a strict set of rules and high expectations; failure is never worth the repercussions. So she does her best to excel at what she does. Having become somewhat of a perfectionist and would take it as a personal blow when it doesn’t meet the standards she sets for herself.

It’s not uncommon for her to turn to music or books as a way to quiet her mind and keep herself busy. Playing her violin until exhaustion had her falling asleep with the bow still grasped in her hand, or listening to loud music though tapes.

For a lot of her life, the only people she could really trust were her two siblings, Alistair and Avery since it was them against the world, everyone else always felt like a threat that should be greeted with caution and coldness. Being quiet and unnoticed has always been her best method of avoiding people as well as many of their unsavory tendencies.

Although Serena isn’t the most approachable person, she does have some softness beneath that hardened exterior. She’d willingly offer a hand to anyone in need and can be protective of those she cares about, however with that can come a grudge like no other, at times not even taking the chance to hear the other side of things. Her patience can be a fickle thing, at times she possesses an endless supply and other times it's as short as a fuse

OTHERS

Father (Amos Blackbourne): Fear is a term that has always been closely tied to her father. From a young age Serena has done her best to avoid his wrath and either go completely unnoticed or stay as close to his good side as was possible in a man full of hate.

Of course this isn’t always possible especially with such a man who could become enraged with the drop of a hat. This of course led to a scarring experience, (one of many) that resulted in a deep seeded fear of deep bodies of water. At times even a bath can leave her sweating and trembling.

Mother (Samantha Blackbourne): Samantha has always reminded Serena of a doll; lovely in appearance but empty on the inside. A mother in action but lacking in feeling it seemed at times she was more of a punching bag than a person.

Birds: Birds have always been one of Serena’s favourite creatures to admire, they’re free to travel anywhere they want. Their lives are so simple and majestic.

Violin: She has always loved the sound of the violin and playing it herself. It had easily been something she’d bonded over with her brother, often playing together, Alistair at the piano and her with her violin. Drowning out everything bad and filling it with music and peace. She’s become quite talented with the instrument.

Avery Blackbourne: The youngest of the Blackbournes had easily been the most innocent of the children. Something Serena and her elder brother had done their best to protect. Taking punishments had always seemed worth it. If only she could have been there when it really mattered since Alistair had failed when it really mattered.

No one has told her of the events that led to her youngest brother being mute, not even after it fractured the bond between the siblings.

Romantic: Ash is the type of guy who wears his heart. When he falls, he falls hard and fully. He may have had his heart broken before but by a rejected crush but it didn’t stop him from loving. He likes spoiling the person he loves, or cute little walks under the moonlight.

Loyal: He is loyal to a fault, sometimes he can be blind to the people closest to them, only able to see the best in them and see no wrong. He would do anything to defend the people he cares about. He’d get a broken nose for any of them.

Gullible: Manipulation isn’t something Ash thinks about people doing, why would someone want to manipulate him instead of just being truthful. He’s easy to lie to and is far too trusting of people's intentions.

Kind: Ash would help everyone if he could, as it, if he sees someone he can assist he will do his best to help them.

Determined: He is a very determined individual who will complete something once he’s set his mind on it. He can seem ambitious at times because of this.

Stubborn: Stubborn is an understatement, sometimes he will refuse help from others or even to ask for it just because he said he’d do it alone in the beginning, or even when he wants to help someone, he avoids getting further assistance.

Brave: As brave as a lion or as foolish as a blind cub.

BIOGRAPHY

Although the day Ash came into the world was the same day as the love of his fathers life and the very woman who brought him into the world also left it. He’s father had done his best to give Ash all the love he could ever need from a parent, even with one missing from his life.

He often told him that the day he came into the world was the happiest in his life even if he had lost a part of himself not too soon after. He gave Ash the name Lee just as he’d planned with his wife when she had been heavily pregnant with him. Though he had decided alone, to give him a middle name. In honor of his mother he was given Ashlyn. Lee Ashlyn.

In the early days of his life, despite his fathers struggles he always kept a roof over their head, sometimes leaving him with their grandparents to make sure he could provide for his only child.

If asked, Ash would say he’d missed out on nothing, had been given more than he could have ever wanted. Though he wished he had more time with his father in later years.

When Ash hit the age of eight, his father had joined the Navy as a captain and often traveled to far off places for long periods of time. Although he always did his best to return to Ash for special occasions and made it up to him when he couldn’t

His grandparents had become his permanent home except the rare occasions he got to go out and visit his father. They helped raise him just as much as his father, shaping him into the person he is today.

It was his grandfather's decision to send Ash off to Grimsworth school. His grandma’s health deteriorated over the years and it was best for him to be away and able to focus on his studies while they could focus on getting her back on her feet.

And so Ash now keeps in contact with his family via letter and the rare occasions they can visit him or bring him back for school breaks.
His family has and always will, mean the world to him. Even if he wishes he could be back in the family shop, helping them take care of things.

PERSONALITY

Even from a young age, Jasper has been a playful, energetic child who alway gets into mischief. From cracking terrible jokes to pulling harmless pranks. It’s not often people will see his serious side as it’s often hidden behind a playful pasona. Despite his energetic and at times loud personality, he is loyal and cares greatly for his friends and family. (Even if he tugs on their hair and teases them mercilessly.)

Jasper has always been a sporty type, likely something he developed from his father and all their roughhousing and game play, even watching his father at one of his games. It’s led to quite the competitive streak that can perhaps get a little too serious in the throws of a match, even in something as small as an innocent boardgame. That being said, he does try to remain lighthearted and playful.

BIOGRAPHY

Being a twin is like growing up with a permanent best friend who’s stuck with you through everything. Cyrus was Jasper's twin, second born of the pair, a fact he liked to tease her with whenever he could, it had been a running joke since they were children. Though back then it was usually something that ended in an argument than an attempt at proving who was bigger and stronger.

For as long as Jasper can remember, the relationship between his parents and his grandparents has been a rocky one. On more than one occasion he’d be stuck listening to the angry disapproval his grandparents felt towards his parents or just the sheer dislike they felt towards his father. Though they’re careful never to take it too far as their relationship is already on thin ice. Something he often heard his parents arguing about late into the night when he couldn’t sleep.

The family dinners they were forced to attend at their grandparents’ fancy home were always dreaded and in more than one case, it resulted in a prank that had his gran red with rage. (They’d destroyed a number of her valuable linen.) He never felt bad, even after endless lectures from his grandfather about how he needed to grow up and act like a man, set an example for his sister. It was exhausting.

It didn’t take long for their grandparents to interfere further, unhappy with how they were being raised, wanting a better education for them. In Jaspers opinion, they just wanted to get them away from their parents, why else would they put so much fight into sending them across the world to such a secluded school.

It felt like their parents didn’t fight as hard on their behalf as they could have. Their father was a well known football star in Australia and their mother had made quite a name for herself too, not needing to rely on her parents money anymore (though they liked to believe she did.) And yet, they were still sent away as soon as possible.

It wasn’t all bad. Jasper made quick friends and easily settled into his life away from home. More times than not, staying close to the school rather than returning home on breaks.

Jasper isn’t the biggest fan of his grandparents and the way they speak about his parents and how much control they believe they have over the twins’ lives

PERSONALITY

Possessive: If it’s hers or she believes it is her’s then she isn’t about to share it. Even with people. If they’re her friends she isn’t going to share them. She’s always been this way since she was a young child. Her parents had never forced her to share before.

Obsessive: When Amber gets an idea in her mind, no matter how outlandish or untrue it may be, she will fixate on it to a dangerous degree. Like falling in love. She will at times take things too fast or too far, oftentimes not even giving the person or persons of her interest any say in the matter.

Perfectionist: Everything she does must be perfect, how she looks, her grades, the space she sleeps in. Everything has a place and a way to be done and it must always be done. If something isn’t done to perfection then it has to be done again.

Persistent: Amber is persistent to a fault. She will continue to press for something even when it’s clear to others there is no possible chance of having a different outcome.

Confident: She may have a little too much confidence and can sometimes seem arrogant in her belief that she is the only one that is correct and others are beneath her. She is always sure of her choices and everything she does.

Manipulation: She is a master manipulator who will twist tales to her own benefit, will lie for her own gain and can act up a storm when she needs to.

Temper: Over time, if Amber doesn’t get what she wants a nasty temper can rear its ugly head. At times it can even be dangerous to others, even herself.

Competitive: She likes to be the best, plain and simple. She'll do whatever it takes to get there.

BIOGRAPHY


Amber has always been treated like a princess.

From the very moment she came into the world her parents have done their best to ensure she received everything she could possibly wish for. From the finest foods and trips around the world, the newest designer clothes or toys she could want. They’d spoiled her rotten, their only child, their pride and joy.

They’d ruined anyone who dared tell her no.

She’d spent many of her early years homeschooled by tutors and people of the highest standings, wanting nothing but the best education for their daughter. Though around her tenth birthday things became strained with her parents. And so her days in school began, despite her initial request to be “Taken out of this horrible dump” her parents had denied her.

She grew to enjoy the school environment, unaware that the people who befriended her were not genuine and never had been. Money had become her only standing and she was completely oblivious.

Her parents' marriage had become strained and divorce was a fast approaching shadow. And Amber was once again in the dark.

She wasn’t the only one. It didn’t take long for the Hart families fist to fall on the school when Amber had a disagreement with another girl. Accusations were made and lies were spread (By Amber herself) This girl had been best friends with a girl that Amber believed to be her best friend and her friend alone. Their friendship was ruined and the other girl had been expelled much to Amber’s satisfaction.

In the end, she was also taken from the school alse, her parents believing it wasn’t the right fit for her and so she was sent to Grimsworth at the age of fourteen. The first boarding school that required her to travel away from her parents.

In this time her parents' marriage had slowly begun to fall apart, the only thing having held them together all this time was the daughter they’d poured their whole lives into.

By the end of her first year they’d split from each other, despite the girl's demands that they stay together. So, unable to truly say no to her, they agreed to live under the same roof until she finished school. Though it drove them to hide their fights and the bed partners that returned home with them at night; whenever their daughter returned home for breaks.

Attention seeking: This girl should have an award for best acting skills, she definitely knows how to put on a show. Being noticed is something she wants whether it is a positive or negative kind of attention, she’ll take it. It’s better than being ignored.

Confident: She rolls in it, or at least seems that way since she seems sure of herself in everything she does. She could probably appear confident even wearing a paper bag as a dress. Definitely something born of insecurity.

Sassy/Sarcastic: Her sense of humour and approach to things is usually with sarcasm or a good dusting of sass. Sometimes it can toe a line between funny and harsh.

Flirtatious: Something that works hand in hand with confidence. She loves to flirt and challenge people in said flirtatious way. It sometimes spices things up, which is lots of fun for all parties involved.

Social butterfly: She has never had trouble easing into conversion with just about anyone, and is usually always found chatting to someone. She’s not a huge fan of quiet. She prefers the company of large groups to being alone. Though sometimes she can be a bit flippant or dismissive of some peoples topics.

Thief: She’s always had a bit of a talent for stealing things right under people's noses, it became a bit of a habit when she used it to get on her parents nerve and has now to some degree she can’t help it. She sees an opening, she’ll take it. Besides, she’s good at it so why stop.

BIOGRAPHY

Most parents after the birth of their child wish to hold and bond with that child rather than leaving them crying and alone. Ivy’s parents never had this instinct, in fact they hadn’t wanted her from the moment they’d found out about her peanut sized existence. The only reason she made it this far was because of her grandmother, now deceased and who she’d been named after.

Faced with raising a child they hadn’t wanted and unable to put her up for adoption thanks to a dying woman's wish, they did the next best thing. Hired help. Nurse maids and nannies that were never consistent at least not that Ivy could ever remember. Her parents were workaholics who had well paying jobs that left them quite wealthy and with no time to spend with their only child. (Not that they ever showed any interest in doing so.)

This had clearly affected Ivy. From a young age she’d done her best to get her parents to notice her. She excelled in school, did her best to learn new skills that might make her more interesting to her parents. Maybe if they were impressed by her they’d act like real parents.

It was never enough, no perfect grades or music performance. Nothing got her a moment of their time. She once broke her wrist and even then it was more of an inconvenience then a concern, not that they did more than the bare minimum. Sometimes, most of the time, she believes they’ve forgotten about her existence all together. It’s left her deprived of a consistent figure in her life.

It didn’t take her long to realise that being a well behaved angel got her nowhere and so good grades turned to fails and good behaviour turned destructive and chaotic. Nannies and sitters were driven away faster, unable to work with such an “Ill mannered brat” as some liked to say. She was also accused of stealing. (An accurate accusation, she liked souvenirs) She was fine with this of course. After all, being bad definitely got you noticed.

Ivy could count the number of times her parents had spoken to her directly on one hand. One of those times being when they decided they’d had enough of her and were sending her off to some boring boarding school across the country. This was of course after she stole a valued artifact from her mothers and sold it. (So they accused)

When people ask Ivy about her parents, the answer is never consistent. Usually they became more and more outlandish or if she was tired of the question,she simply said they were dead and she didn’t know them. (It felt that way sometimes.) Now all she does is take advantage of them and their money, the money they send to her to keep her quiet.

She’s given up on trying to gain their attention, why should she bother now that she’s surrounded by plenty of willing bodies. Good or bad attention, at least she’s noticed.

OTHERS

Parents:
Nonexistent in her life. Live a wealthy lifestyle. Are always working.

Cardboard box:
Full of random and sometimes expensive things she’s stolen from people, isn’t protective of it at all, just a random storage place for shit she steals and doesn’t sell.

PERSONALITY

“If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try” A motto Dakota could live by. Fear has never been a deterrent for him. In fact, he’s more likely to go towards danger then away. The bigger the risk, the better the reward. It was why he was often found in some high up place or trying some foolish new thing that could potentially get him killed.

It wasn’t just for the thrills though, not a lot of people would do something so dangerous, meaning it was usually peaceful and quiet. Perhaps on some level, facing down fears gave him more confidence to face down other demons.

He’s definitely a confident individual and has a lot of trust in his own body and its capabilities as well as an awareness of his own limitations (That doesn’t always stop him). He has a deep respect for nature and spiritual beliefs, and generally prefers outside then inside, he’d likely sleep out there every night if he could.

Although he has a potentially explosive anger, it's generally hard for him to get to this point, though it can be hard coming down from this point. Usually he has a dry almost sarcastic sense of humour that can at times be quite dark. He’s loyal perhaps to a fault, willingly going down with someone rather than turn them in. Parkour the best way to get around.

BIOGRAPHY

Dakota’s father left when he was too young to remember anything about him, leaving his mother to raise him and his younger sister alone. She was often forced to work multiple jobs simply to put food on the table and pay the bills. At times having to leave them alone while she worked, it was a paycheck to paycheck kind of life.

She was a stubborn woman however and never accepted help from anyone, determined to do it all alone despite her family reaching out to her. Offering their help, offering her a place back at home with her tribe. She didn’t cave until she got sick, when Dakota was around the age of seven. It was fear for her children's well-being that drove her to return home and finally accept her family's help and protection.

The Yakama tribe readily welcomed the children, despite their distaste for their father, a fact that had been clear since their mother had run off with him years before. They often referred to him as a Navajo, a thief. Dakota still wasn’t sure if that was because he’d taken his mother away. When it became clear their father wasn’t coming back, their mother changed that last name, giving them a small piece of their tribe and cut the last tie connecting them to a man who didn’t want them.

A lot of the years after that was spent learning about his culture and family, about the land and the peoples spiritual beliefs. Those years weren’t all easy, as he did search for his father for a bit, although nothing ever came of it. It lit an almost...reckless fire inside him (although he had always been somewhat of a wild child). After a few complaints and a brush with the authorities for trespassing and endangering himself. His mother sent him to Grimsworth in the hopes it may calm some of the wildness in him or at the very least give him a chance at a future of his choice.

Dakota sometimes thought the tribe had put her up to it, but maybe she just couldn’t handle him anymore.

PERSONALITY

Whimsical. Unorthodox. Odd.

It’s difficult to pinpoint what exactly makes Richie Henley tick. No one word can accurately describe his true essence. An outlier even amongst his peers, the teen holds a precocious spirit . Reserved in some instances, outspoken in the other, the boy seems to follow his own inner whimsy wherever that may lead him. Those who have been in his company often come away from the experience wanting more, inherently and inexplicably curious of the teen’s strange, enigmatic essence. He is pleasant enough; inherently kind to a fault , he exudes a quiet, calming confidence in his constant manners and his easy, leisurely way of speaking. But there is an odd fluidity to him. A looseness, of both body and spirit, that does not at all fit his age. At times, one gets the impression that the teen is not really all there. Richie is prone to a wayward mind, and he tends to drift away - abruptly at times - from both conversation and action to his own lofty thoughts.

One of Richie’s downfalls is his passive nature. He despises confrontation and drama. His desire to remain neutral in all disputes and/or major decisions has led him to a “going along to get along” type of attitude, and he tends to adopt a head in the sand tactic when trouble arises.

BIOGRAPHY

Middle class suburbia was everything to the Henley family. Richie was raised first in New Hampshire, where both convenience stores and white picket fence homes abounded. To his parents, it represented a sense of normalcy for their very much not normal child. But wanderlust called; much like their son, their desire for change quickly resurfaced, and after years of making friends with glossy, fake smiles and perfectly permed styles, the Henley family began looking to relocate.

Next they moved to Las Vegas. A new job meant a nice big house with a pool - and a few miles from the casinos, to boot. It was tolerably better than the tv mothers from the East Coast, but still, still Richie squirmed in his skin. He wanted something new and bombastic.

Receiving the scholarship to Grimsworth was a welcome surprise. A new opportunity was always welcome to the teen, and he didn’t waste much time in packing his bags and moving. He can only hope this experience doesn’t grow old as quickly as the others did.

OTHERS

Appearance
A youthful slimness is a predominant feature of Richie’s build. At the lofty height of 5’10”, the redhead is remarkably lanky, having just the bare minimum of body muscle and fat to support his willowy frame. He often remarks that a good, strong breeze could blow him over, and his efforts to bulk up have led to no evident results. Adding to his “starving artist” visage are his pronounced and gaunt facial structure. Much of his mother lies therein, most prominently in his striking amber eyes.

He enjoys being on the cutting edge of fashion. No look is too robust or outlandish for him - so long as it is stylish. Most days he opts for comfort, but one can never tell. Even his most simplistic outfits hold the weight of elegant design, and he is very pleased when others compliment his look. Dark colors are a staple of his. And of course, the ultimate accessory: a cigarette held between his fingers or lips whenever he finds time to light one. How he continues to smuggle them into school without being caught is unknown.

Hunter Nolan

BASIC INFO

Name:
Hunter Nolan

Alias(es):
Mad Dog

Titles:
Orphan | All-American Quarterback

Age & Birthday:
18 | August 5th

Year:
Senior

Height:
6'2"

Residence Hall:
Venture

Electives:
Psychology | Mythology

Extra-curricular Activities:
Football Team

PERSONALITY

Barely bridled passion encapsulates the all-american quarterback. Trapped in the hellish quest of teenage self-identity, Hunter is marked by his volatile emotions. Latent violence manifests most often in the form of aggression, and the high schooler’s unfortunate use of it features prominently when scared, challenged, confused, or otherwise forced out of his comfort zone. He tries - often in vain - to control his wilder side, but like a mad dog, once his fuse has been lit, it’s hard for him to calm the raging storm within. Football has become a viable outlet for the boy - an unfortunate thing for opposing players who find themselves in his path.

Hunter’s temper obfuscates his softer, lesser known qualities. The boy is surprisingly intelligent and quiet when free from outside stimuli. Outside of sports, he can sometimes be found in the library with a good book - though he prefers not to be caught by his jock peers. Less noticeable is his unseen thirst for knowledge. He is an unquestionably curious individual - one could even describe him as slightly nosy, though the male does not care to voluntarily stick his nose into others business. The brutish male tends to notice far more than he lets on. He never seems too far from any drama or event happening at school, and his hawkish eyes can be seen observing quietly what’s going on…

BIOGRAPHY

Privilege often breeds hubris.

Hunter’s parents were in no position to have children. Rich, enterprising young socialites, the pair had yet to grasp the mental maturity and accountability that came hand in hand with adulthood. Parties and globe-trotting were the order of the day, and they were more than happy to continue that willful bliss for the rest of their lives.

Having children was initially a minor “mistake”, but soon it became more than that. It became a nuisance. An inconvenience. A distraction. When Hunter became old enough, they began shipping him to boarding schools while they traveled the world, and summers were spent with a revolving door of nannies and high-end babysitters. They raised him through postcards and holiday phone calls. Rarely did he see them in person.

It was around last year that Hunter was enrolled in Grimsworth. Out of sight, out of mind so to speak. Hunter doesn’t care to talk about his family; truthfully, the subject is a matter of contention to him, and he is quick to become hostile in a line of questioning. His ill will towards the subject matter has only worsened since his brother Emery enrolled at the school as well.

OTHERS

Appearance:
“Mad Dog” - also known on the football field as a living brick wall. A rough masculinity is exuded from the teen’s very presence. Hunter is a titan among his peers - measuring in at 6 feet 2 inches, the footballer has the wide, muscular girth and strength to match. His facial features are sharp and defined, as if life was infused within a stone carving. With piercing dark eyes and even darker hair, Hunter could be considered handsome - even if his face is often trapped in a contemptuous scowl.

Hunter is a creature of habit when it comes to his apparel. With little fashion creativity, he does not stray far from athletic wear. Letterman jackets and gym shoes are his staple casual clothes. His school uniform is perhaps the most dressed up the teen ever gets, and even that outfit he manages to make look informal simply by wearing it. He chafes at the tie like a dog pulling at its leash. Whenever the opportunity provides itself, Hunter is quick to do away with the tie entirely and stow it in his pocket.

School Status:
In the year he's been at Grimsworth, Hunter has made a remarkable name for himself as something of an alpha dog. Apparently strength - both physical and mental - are attract followers in spades. Hunter has a sizable connection of constituents that tag along with him. Most are other meathead jocks, but sprinkled in the mix are underclassmen, rich kids, and inexplicably some adoring female fans. Some hang around just to see what he’ll do. Others are just relieved that they're on the good side of his temper. Hunter doesn’t mind the popularity - so long as they don’t interfere with his day to day routines.

BIOGRAPHY

When Leo was born, his parents choose his name in hopes that he would have the courage and strength of a lion. It was a lot to live up to. As the child of a model and film director, they had great expectations. Even at only a few months old, his parents were already signing him up for commercials and product photoshoots. At just six months old his face was printed on a huge international diaper company products. From there, his resume continued to grow. Leo spent most of his young life traveling with his parents all over the world. He got to experience things that most can only dream about. By the time he was ten, he had already been to almost thirty different countries.

While his parents worked during the day, he was often left by himself for long stretches of time. When his parents returned for the night, they were usually too busy or tired to be present in the moment with him. In a desperate attempt to quell the loneliness inside of himself, he began to act out. On occasions that he would have a nanny or tutor watching him, he would end up running them ragged with his unending energy and mischievous tendencies. Although his childish method achieved its goal, the attention that he received was solely negative.

Even though his parents like to say they encouraged his free spirit, being in a family who was constantly in the public eye meant that he quickly was taught how to behave. The media wanted to see a perfect family, and that is what his parents portrayed. And to break that illusion was worse than death. Over the years, he developed a better way to cope with the loneliness he felt in his heart. Instead of causing trouble, he became the clown. A person who makes others smile would never be alone. At least, that is what he thought. Yet, that feeling still persisted.

By the time he had entered his teens, the fake flawlessness that his parents constantly preached to him was suffocating. It was as if he was a puppet, never allowed to express his emotions nor make his own decisions. While with his parents, they were able to keep him in check. But, as his parents started working longer hours, leaving him home as they went overseas, his emotions finally boiled over. To fill the lonely and rebellious hole in his chest, Leo started to attend parties every night. It quickly became his routine to drink until he passed out, and he never spent a night alone. His days were filled with friends and adventures, but he still wasn't fulfilled.

When his parent returned, they quickly wanted to send him off to boarding school. A sort of rehab without the negative implications of a genuine clinic. Leo wasn't keen on the idea, though he knew he wouldn’t have much of a choice. So he agreed, with the sole condition that he got to go to Grimsworth.

APPEARANCE

Hair:
Medium length. Dyed blond with dark brown roots.

Eyes:
Amber

Height:
5’7

Weight:
130lbs

Build:
Willowy, Supple, Toned

Compexion:
Tan, Smooth, Clear

Tatoos:
None.

Piercings:
Ears: Leo has two forward helix’s, three helix’s, and two mid helix’s, and one lower helix. He has three lobe piercings and his tragus done.

Face: The bridge of his right eyebrow has a ring hoop. His left nostril is pierced with a silver stud. He has his septum pierced with a silver circular barbell. The bottom lip has a pair of snake bites. His tongue has a single silver stud.

Body: Both of his nipples are pierced with captive ring hoops. His belly button has a single piercing that typically dangles down.​

Distinguishing Marks:
Scar: Leo has several scars on his body from accidents he has had when he was drunk.​

Clothing: As some who grew up surrounded by high fashion, Leo has a great appreciation for it. He goes through great effort to ensure that everything he wears looks good. Some of his favorite pieces include a leather jacket and skinny jeans. With long hair, he can often be seen wearing his hair pinned back with bobby pins or with a headband. His style is quite flamboyant, and it wouldn’t be strange to see him wearing a crop top or booty shorts.

OTHERS

Strengths:
Cheerful: Leo is a very social being, and his uplifting attitude, often draws people in. He isn’t the type to let something get him down for long, or at least not when he is around others. When Leo is with others, he is the life of the party. Even going out of his way to make others smile and laugh. Which, can sometimes cause him to get into trouble. But, when others around him are having fun, it helps put him at ease and take his mind off his own troubles.​

Weaknesses:
Secretive: Despite how open Leo can be about most aspects of his life when it comes to his emotions he keeps them hidden to the point of repressing them. Since he believes that people only like him because of his fun attitude, he is afraid that if he shares that he will become a burden and everyone will leave him. This would be devastating to him, so he keeps anything negative in his life to himself. The only time he allows himself to feel these is when he is by himself, which regularly leads him to make poor decisions and self-medicating.

Easily Discouraged: When Leo gets excited about something, there isn’t anything in the world that can stop him. However, that is a rare occasion. The other times he is the type to give up at the first sign of difficulties. A large part of this trait is his fear of failure. This has to lead him to have poor grades and many breakups.​

Likes:
Music: After years of repressing any negative emotions he might have, listening to music became his only form of expression. It became an outlet and felt like the only thing that kept him sane.

Social Events: When you’re surrounded by people, how could you possibly lonely? This is the main thought behind Leo’s tendency to attend so many events. Even if it is simply a lowkey hangout session with his friends, it’s better than being alone with his thoughts.

Body Modifications: To be different is to be human. Leo can’t help but rage against conformity, and his body is the perfect canvas. Whether it’s dyed hair, tattoos, or piercings, Leo is drawn to the individuality that they provide.

Arcade Games: If it provides entertainment and fun, Leo likely enjoys it. One of his favorite pass times is going to the local arcade and trying to beat his friend’s high scores. It is something that always took his mind off of troubling thoughts.

Sunshine: The sun shining down onto him is one of Leo’s favorite feelings. It is as if he is being enveloped into a warm hug. On sunny days, it wouldn’t be unusual to catch him skipping class and napping in the sun.​

Dislikes:
Rules: The thought of mindlessly following rules or orders without question brings a feeling of giving up control. When someone tells Leo what to do, he is likely to do the exact opposite. Just to prove that he can.

Storms: With the chaos of a storm raging outside, Leo was often left to weather it alone. Even though he is no longer a helpless child, he still feels antsy whenever the storm grows too loud.​

Fears:
Loneliness: It would seem ridiculous that the person constantly surrounded by people would ever feel alone. Yet, that is exactly the thing he fears most. When he is by himself, the thoughts that he is able to ignore come to the front of his mind.​

Hobbies:
Rock Band: One of the most freeing experiences in the world is playing music with all your heart. Leo had been involved in a number of bands over the years, and it had become something that he loves dearly. When he is having trouble, he will often pull out his guitar and jam with all the energy he has. And when he sings, he sings with his full heart. This is one of the few times when he can be honest and express his emotions.

Theater: With parents in the entertainment industry, often stressed the importance of observing the arts. It was one of the few family activities that Leo truly enjoyed. When he watched plays and musicals, it brings him back to a more simple time and he is able to forget his troubles. Over the years, he has developed a deep appreciation for art. The costumes, the makeup, the sets, it all brings the story to life. Not to mention his love of reciting the songs from the top of his lungs.​

Health Conditions:
ADHD: Leo has always had more energy than he could ever use. As a child, it was often difficult for him to sit still. As he got older, his attention difficulties became worse. Though, when something sparks his interest he hyperfixates on the topic.

Depression: Even from a young age, Leo has always suffered from depression. At first, it was simply that he was unhappy. But over the years he has steadily lost interest in hobbies, become lethargic and moody, and developed poor sleeping and eating habits.

Addiction: As a product of his constant partying, Leo took up drinking and using drugs as a way to self-medicate. It has gotten to the point that he cant go without using them without having withdrawal symptoms.​

BIOGRAPHY

When born into a life of privilege, one would expect a blissful existence. After all, to have every need met, every desire filled, and to never want for anything, what is left to be unhappy about? Yet, it was the most basic of human necessities that were missing from Emery’s life.

The parents that should have provided him with the unconditional love that he craved were absent from his life. As a baby when he cried, it was various nannies who held him. When he made achievements in school, it was his tutor who congratulated him. When he was sick, it was a strange doctor who took care of him.

From the moment of his conception, he became a burden. They were too busy living life to its fullest, to worry about a child. As soon as he was old enough, he was sent away to boarding school with his brother. At that time, the most he could expect was the occasional postcard or holiday phone card. But even that seems to be dwindling.

When asked about his family, it causes Emery to become visibly upset and when pushed too hard he has been known to shut down and become mute. Even though it is clear that his situation bothers him, he still always makes excuses for his parents. Claiming that they are simply too busy and that he wouldn’t want to bother them.

Distinguishing Marks:
Freckled cheeks

Clothing:
Emery prefers to wear baggy clothes in order to hide his insecurities about his body. This usually includes oversized sweaters and sweatshirts in either black, purple, or blue. As for pants, it’s simple skinny jeans and tennis shoes.

OTHERS

Strengths:
Studious: Emery is the type who takes his learning very seriously. For him, it is always exciting to learn something new, and a great distraction for the troubling thing going on around him. When he feels confident about a subject, it tends to ease some of the nerves he has when he is at school.

Humble: Despite his academic achievements, Emery has never been the boastful type. This is in part because he doesn’t want to draw unwanted attention to himself, but also because he understands the struggle that comes with learning. Even with his success, things don’t come easy for him, and he doesn’t believe that intelligence is the only method to success

Ruminative: With everything he does, Emery has likely spent hours thinking about every aspect or possibility. This started as a way to ease his anxiety but has evolved to encompass his entire life. It has gotten to the point that his contemplative nature has made him indecisive with decisions. He often appears lost in thought and somber.​

Weaknesses:
Unassertive: When faced with most social situations, Emery would rather avoid or fade into the background. It is difficult for him to speak, or draw attention to himself. Even if that means being passive when he is being pushed around. He doesn’t have many friends, and only ever seems at peace when he is out in nature and reading.

Naive: Even though Emery has learned many things, he would be sorely considered book smart. When it comes to the real world, he tends to be inexperienced. Things such as social norms and customs are lost on him.

Melancholic: In many cases, Emery often can appear unfriendly because of his preoccupation with learning. However, underneath his stony expression, he is actually quite lonely. Even though he believes it’s easier to be alone, it still isn’t something that he desires. With his inability to be vulnerable, and his denying that anyone could understand him, he often pushes people away or doesn’t even try.​

Likes:
Insects: The tiny creatures that we share our world with typically go unnoticed. That is until they become a nuisance. For Emery, he finds these creatures fascinating and can spend hours hunting for and observing them.

Nature: When the world often feels so loud, the serenity that nature provides is a welcome reprieve. Whether it is simply sitting under a tree, or planting something in the garden, Emery enjoys those quiet moments.

Birds: While gazing from below, the birds that fill the skies appear so free. The way they move through the air so effortlessly draws Emery’s attention. With their harmonious songs, they are truly beautiful.

Chess: It was a game learned by chance, as he idly picked up a magazine reporting on the championship. The structure and firm rules in contrast to the infinite number of moves and strategies caught Emery’s attention.​

Dislikes:
Crowds: With a school full of students, it’s hard to ever find a moment alone. The classrooms are always packed, along with the halls and courtyards. As someone who feels suffocated being surrounded by so many people, it makes life difficult.

Confrontation: The raised voices, the tense posture, and the harsh gazes of a hostile situation all put Emery on edge. As someone who just wants to get along with everyone, he wants to avoid any arguments even if it means being passive or mistreated.

Sports: The conflict of competition is intense, yet Emery seems to not have any drive to win. The feeling of the hot sun shining down on his pale skin, along with the sweat dripping down his face isn’t an enjoyable experience.​

Fear:
The Forest: It is difficult to ignore the whispered rumors about the forest. The place seems to be riddled with mysteries, many of which are quite scary to Emery. It is a place he would never want to enter, going so far as to avoid even getting near its edge.​

Hobbies:
Reading: One of the best feelings is getting lost inside a good book. When he is reading, Emery is able to escape his troublesome life and explore another.

Drawing: The world is a truly magical place, filled with creatures and places of beauty. It was this appreciation that started Emery’s journey to document the world around him through drawing.

Baking: Emery has always had a sweet tooth. The effort and work to bake some delicious treats are worth every minute. It is enjoyable when he can make things for other people that he cares for.​

Health Conditions:
Social Anxiety: For as long as he can remember, Emery has had difficulties in social situations. It can often feel as if he is being watched, judged and his every move is scrutinized. Even though he logically knows this to be false, he can’t seem to escape the shell that he hides inside of.

Selective Mutism: When the anxiety reaches its limit, Emery is known to go mute. He can obviously speak and isn’t impaired in any way. However, this reaction will often occur in select overwhelming social settings.​

At a glance, Ewan has a lot going for him. An intelligent young man blessed with wealth and good looks, he is both academically gifted and a serious athlete.

A student teaching assistant, he tackles the added responsibility with grace and enjoys tutoring classmates when he has spare time. With an easy, natural-looking smile, he can be quite personable in one-on-one conversation, and most who don’t know him well would go as far as to call him charming.

Who he is in public, the boy he presents to the greater student body and the faculty, can be flipped on and off like a switch. A dark social deviance lurks within Ewan; he is cold, dry, temperamental, takes even the most accidental of slights personally and will hold a grudge all the way to the grave. Aside from an affinity for his sister, Lucida, Ewan is uninterested in making or keeping friends, though he won’t stop anyone from seeing the freak show up close.

Ewan doesn’t drink or do drugs. Instead, he prefers the natural high of adrenaline and nothing gets his blood pumping quite like a fire. He’s set several over the last few years—the most recent resulted in the Venture Hall dorms being temporarily evacuated after a trashcan fire raged out of control in the bathroom. Ewan was never caught, but even if he had been, his reliance on his last name keeps him untouchable.

OTHERS

Likes & Dislikes:
Despite the typical teenage philosophy of hating everything, Ewan has a fair number of hobbies. He has a real love for the piano and will spend hours playing outside of orchestra practice just for the hell of it. He also likes to read. Non-fiction is his favorite genre by far and he’s developed a semi-recent interest in medical textbooks. From human anatomy to horrid disease, Ewan likes pouring over the tiny details of old diagrams and relating them to his own body. It’s silly, but he thinks he might like to be a doctor one day. When he’s not scratching an intellectual itch, Ewan is setting fire in the forest and shooting pellets at the local fauna. No bird, rabbit or squirrel is safe from his ire.

Like most people, there are plenty of things that bug Ewan, but being denied drives him up the wall. He is the type of person who wants to live by his own rules, to do what he wants whenever he wants, and someone having the nerve to interfere with that makes him angry. This distaste for authority is part of what fuels his ego, the belief that he knows best at all times and everyone around him are just fools.

In between a like and dislike are his feelings toward outsiders and the poors, which often overlap with one another. Ewan doesn’t care about any of them, doesn’t care to speak to them or associate with them, but he doesn’t hate any of them the way some of the other Founding children do.

Appearance:
Tall, with dark hair and dreamy bedroom eyes, Ewan is a cold drink of water on a hot day. He is confident in his appearance, and likes to admire his own sharp jawline in the mirror while knotting his tie in the mornings. Ewan takes fencing as seriously as he takes his studies, so staying in shape is paramount to his continued success. His muscles are lean and long, tight beneath pale skin that is dotted with self-inflicted burn marks. These marks, in various states of healing and aging, dot his stomach and thighs; some are big and mimic the open flame of a lighter, while others are small and round like the end of a cigarette. Ewan doesn’t care if anyone can see his scars.

When not in his school uniform, Ewan prefers to dress in black. He has a favorite black turtleneck as well as a pair of combat boots that he polishes every chance he gets.

5'6"

Residence Hall:

Electives:

Extra-curricular Activities:
Horticulture Club | Swimming | Track Team | Student Leader (Freshman Orientation Team)

PERSONALITY

If asked, “what’s Casey actually like?” most people would probably ask, “who the hell is that?”

Casey has gone by Baby for as long as he can remember, but he hopes his soft and delicate nickname doesn’t fool you. While he is calm and laid-back for the most part, he is sure of himself and confident, not easily manipulated or deterred once he’s made up his mind. This stubbornness can sometimes come back to bite him in the ass, but Baby rolls with the punches; he’s suffered several in his short life so far.

Endlessly curious, wide-eyed and excitable, Baby sinks into life with his own brand of sweetness. A social butterfly, he is always looking to have fun and hoards new experiences the way seniors hoard antiques.

BIOGRAPHY

Casey was born in Munich, but grew up all over the world. His mother is a high-ranking member of the United States Air Force and his father is a career veteran at the State Department. Due to logistical reasons, the two never married, but have been "together" for almost twenty years. Most of Casey's childhood was spent moving between his mother's postings, but he spent every summer and alternating holidays with his father. He has a good relationship with both of his parents, and although their feelings have cooled toward one another over the years, they remain cordial for the sake of their son.

Although he didn't have a typical childhood, Casey feels that he grew up happy and cared for and has few complaints about the adventurous life he's been privileged enough to live so far. Due to frequent moves, some of Casey's schooling has been inconsistent, but that changed when he was offered a scholarship to the Grimsworth School at fourteen. It was the first time that he had ever been truly away from his family, but the change of scenery was exciting. A friendly person by nature, it didn't take long for Casey to get involved in many of the school's activities, though he quickly discovered that outsiders like himself weren't always looked upon or treated kindly.

OTHERS

Likes & Dislikes:
Baby is one-hundred percent sure that he likes more things than he dislikes, simply because it takes quite a bit to get his shorts in a twist. Being excluded upsets him as much as being talked down to. He flat out refuses to deal with bullies, or people he finds ignorant, and he’d sooner walk away from someone yelling at him than yell back.

Since the actions of others are beyond his control, Baby tries to keep his own surroundings positive. He loves being outdoors, taking long hikes or sitting by the water where he can relax and watch the clouds for a while. When he’s not falling in love with nature and all she has to offer, Baby keeps his spirits high with sugary drinks and good music.

Appearance:
Baby is a little guy, but he’s never let a silly thing like height get him down. Willowy, lightly tanned and sporting a head of thick, golden-brown hair, Baby would realize that he turns a few heads if he would ever bother to look. His eyes are a warm shade of brown and are further brightened by a gentle, genuine smile.

As far as clothes go, Baby isn’t flashy or fancy. His pockets are pretty empty, so he can’t afford the best of anything and most of the staples in his closet are secondhand from the thrift store. Aside from his beanie collection, his pride and joy is his mother’s old bomber jacket; it’s sporting a few patches these days, but Baby would let it turn to rags before he got rid of it.

Residence Hall:

Electives:
Creative Writing | Latin IV | Psychology

Extra-curricular Activities:
Book Club | Literary Magazine | Yearbook Club

PERSONALITY

Purposefully quiet and exercising a fair amount of self-control, Dawn prefers to observe and absorb rather than act. With a memory like a steel trap, it’s rare that she forgets anything, but she’s not above pretending when it serves her interests. Dawn has an estranged relationship with the truth and prefers to live in her head, though sometimes her fantasy world slips into the real world. Regardless of the situation, she lies just because, and has been lying for so long that most now see her as unreliable. Dawn doesn’t lose any sleep over this self-inflicted wound to her reputation.

Intelligent, secretive and patient, Dawn allows others to project parts of themselves onto her so that they see what they want. There are only a few people—Feyre Abernathy being one of them—who know what really makes Dawn tick, but even then, she maintains a finger-length of distance just to be on the safe side. Dawn would prefer that no one know her, yet she years to be understood.

Aside from being in on secrets and keeping a large sum of her own, Dawn’s major pastime is writing. Whether it be journaling in one of her many diaries, editing and submitting dueling articles to the school paper under a pseudonym, or spinning private tales for herself, she’s rarely without a notebook and a pencil. On off chance that she’s not writing, or curled up somewhere with a good book, Dawn enjoys tempting fate by wandering in Grimswood Forest. She has a special affinity for the water, and has been practicing the dead man’s float since childhood in an effort to cruelly prank anyone who is unfortunate enough to find her. So far, she’s only managed to trick her father, and her best friend, Feyre.

OTHERS

Likes & Dislikes:
There are plenty of things that Dawn likes, but most of what she dislikes centers around people and their mannerisms. If you’re boisterous, braggadocios, too concerned with football, don’t believe in ghosts, won’t smoke a cigarette, prefer vinyl over cassette tapes, or insist on putting milk in your coffee instead of cream, then chances are that Dawn thinks she’s better than you. Rather than argue about any of that, however, she believes that everyone is entitled to their own wrong opinion.

Appearance:
It’s important to note that Dawn takes after her mother. When people see the Venture heiress with her father, they wonder if the two are related at all. While he’s a tall and angular with a robust head of wavy, formerly auburn-colored hair, Dawn is small with cherubic features. The only thing that the two share are their eyes, both incredibly round and a placid shade of tawny brown. She is easily recognizable in a crowd by her poofy blonde hair and she prefers to keep it on the short side. Aside from brown eyeliner and a few different shades of red lipstick, Dawn doesn’t like to fuss with makeup outside of special occasions.

Her style of dress could be described as preppy, with her wardrobe sporting a number of skirts, slacks and cardigan sweaters in muted colors. She likes to wear jewelry, and has a gold, heart-shaped locket that she hasn’t taken off since childhood; the picture inside remains a mystery.

PERSONALITY

Elise is incredibly intelligent and always eager to learn absolutely anything. She often is found with her head in a book or her attention diligently upon her classes. Her inquisitive nature aids her intelligence and in result, her academic success. It also is involved in her tendency to ramble - as she will sometimes start to talk and just not stop until someone stops her about whatever she has most recently learnt. Elise tends to prefer a logical approach to things, a benefit as she often will apply herself to roles of responsibility whenever the opportunity is provided to her.

She is a rather kind and supportive individual. When someone can put up with her constant rambles, she is a pretty good friend. Always willing to listen and support someone, acting as a listening ear for their troubles. She will always go out of her way to help someone if it is within her power to do so. To most who meet her, she is mostly a calm and collected individual, always with a soft smiling and welcoming air about her. In fact, to some, she even seems to take on a motherly type friend role.

Elise can be an incredible klutz however. She has, on multiple occasions, tripped on nothing but air or found herself walking into pillars or corners - though it is more often done when she is distracted by her reading. If she is not rambling, sometimes she will be lost in her thoughts and it may take a few tries to garner her attention, something she will be quick to apologise for. Surprisingly, despite her kindness, Elise has a rather unforgiving side. She finds its quite hard to forgive others.

BIOGRAPHY

Elise comes from a small family of five containing her mother, father, older brother and younger brother. Her father owns a medium sized business in producing jewellery whereas her mother stayed home to care for their three children. They lived quite happily within the countryside in England, growing up often exploring the nearby forests and wildlife together. Their mother would often read them stories of legends and myths, a possible start to her love of literature and lore.

The three Campbell siblings would often explore and entertain one another as there was not too many their age in their small town and their father was often away for business. Their house bordered a nearby forest that the trio would explore, to visit a nearby field. Mostly, their visits were harmless, though her older brother did once get seriously hurt, an event that kept the three of them out of there since.

As she grew older, Elise lost herself more in books. She loved reading of various myths and lores from all over the world - always wondering if they originated from some truth. Though her grades were the highest of her classes, Elise would often be found reading during them or in their schools or local library. She was content and happy, at least until she began to run out of new material. Their father only came home so often and with him, he would bring her new books to read.

Elise always wanted to learn more and as she grew, she wanted to see more too. So as her high school days approached, she researched into new schools that she could travel too. She spoke to her parents of course, wanting to make sure they were okay with her idea to move away. To Elise, it was a blessing when she heard of and subsequently, applied for Grimsworth. Though it was undeniably far, it was a new experience that she could not lose out on.

OTHERS

Appearance:
Elise is just below average in height with platinum blonde straight hair that reaches her mid back. She has large, downturned shaped eyes that are a blue almost grey shade. Elise is not the slimmest girl but she is not overweight in any way, with a small amount of curve to her. She loves bright colours and so often will be seen wearing bright colours in her rather feminine style as she loves dresses and skirts. Her hair is often styled, though sometimes due to her clumsiness and tendency to get lost in thought or distracted, it will be slightly messy or look like it’s done in a hurry. Elise has a small star shaped necklace that she is always wearing and if she is not wearing it, she has probably lost it and is panicking. Elise loves having her nails painted bright colours. She sometimes will be seen wearing her glasses, which she is prescribed to use when reading, though she often forgets to use them.

PERSONALITY

Sanguine, in short, is a rather emotional person. She is known for her temper especially as her typical reaction and go to move is violence. It’s not rare to see her getting into violent altercations due to an insult that hit her too close to home or against something or someone she is close to. Her anger though is often triggered by protectiveness, defensiveness or frustrations - so it does not consume all of her personality. She has always been the type to hold strong emotions that often frustrated her. For one, she is rather angered by her own lack of control as it is rarely ever how she wants to be. It’s quite a sore spot for her. Equally, Sanguine can be rather kind and loving - especially when she has grown close to someone which often leads to protectiveness.

Sanguine is also rather competitive and intense, which often leads her to physical activities to drain that energy. Behind her rather harsher side, she can be quite soft. She has a rather large weakness for anything someone would deem cute - small animals, pastel colours, anything rather cutesy. It would explain her growing collection of plushies. Furthermore, she has quite a despised reaction to any form of compliments, often causing her to turn a bright cherry red much to her own dismay. She also harbors a healthy sense of pride in herself, though her perception of her worth is rather lacking.

The redhead has a strong sense of justice and tends to act on a principle of fairness, at least when her anger is not blinding her. She will throw herself into a situation she is not even involved in if her seems to present a situation of unfairness of injustice, leading her to be known to snap at any form of bullying or torment she sees. If she gets into a fight, though driven by her rage, she will try to be as fair as possible - which is mostly why her own hits are normally by her fist alone. She can be quite vindictive and will hold onto a grudge. Loyalty and honesty are two principles she acts upon - she hates betrayal and lies. When Sanguine is doing any type of task, she shows herself to be a rather determined individual as she will put all her effort into her work and hates being idle. In terms of her academics, Sanguine does tend to struggle much to her own frustration.

BIOGRAPHY

Sanguine’s parents, Amanda and Mark, both own a small bakery in a smaller town not far from the town and school. They worked hard, both truly in love with their craft. Shortly after their marriage, the happy couple gave birth to their first child, and over the next few years after that, they would give birth to more. Sanguine was the third child out of six and grew up around her parents bakery, learning and working alongside them and her siblings. However, it did possibly lead to her rather destructive anger and defensiveness as she rarely felt heard from within the crowd of her siblings and her rather talented older brother.

During her early school years, Sanguine fell in love with theatre and in result, plays and even TV dramas. She seemingly enjoyed the energy and emotions - as the dramatic displays often made her feel less bad about how strong her own came across. Often, she would audition and participate in her early school’s plays and as a child, would say she wanted to be an actress, though that dream has long since changed. Her parents would also enrol her in a lot of sports - mostly to drain off her energy and anger since she never seemed to run out of either as a small kid.

It wasn’t until her late teens that anything noteworthy happened, as Sanguine would say. Until then, her life had been rather basic with very little drama or issues. At least, until she had a falling out with her parents and siblings. Sanguine had gotten into a major argument with her older brother, the both provoking one another till it erupted in a fight. Her parents, knowing her tendency to anger, seemed to put more blame on her much to her dismay.

With her ever long tendency to hold a grudge, she was rather resentful of her brother and parents - especially their pride in her brother who was on track to be a banker. Wanting to get away from them, she packed up and applied for Grimsworth school as it would provide accommodation with a scholarship. Once she was accepted, Sanguine practically forced her parents to sign them before she was gone.

OTHERS

Appearance:
She stands at 5’’7 with a toned and athletic build. Her eyes are a bright green that stand out against her pale, freckled skin and bright red hair that falls to her waist in slight curls. She has slight muscles apparent due to her frequent physical activities and involvement in sport or exercise. Sanguine does not care much for fashion and will primarily wear whatever is comfortable to her at the time and considering the weather. She is typically always wearing an amethyst stone necklace and what looks like to be a couple handmade beaded bracelets upon her left wrist. She hates skirts and heels with a passion and never seems happy wearing them.

Senior

Residence Hall:
Florence

Electives:

Extra-curricular Activities:
Honors Society, Book club

PERSONALITY

Rosa by first impressions is rather quiet and reserved. As to be expected of a politician and socialite's daughter. She presents herself with manners and pride - as her parents taught her too. However, it is far from the entirety of her personality. Rosa is intelligent but seemingly rather apathetic to the world. Little displays of emotions tend to rise to her features or actions, leaving her to be rather quiet. She doesn’t tend to find long-term interest or enthusiasm in anything, especially when it concerns other people. Towards most, Rosa feels rather indifferent. She simply tends to not care for others. Few however, do interest her and she will become friends with them.

From her father, she has seemed to gain quite a manipulative streak that she rarely feels guilt for. She sees her actions as something to benefit her, this tending to be what drives Rosa to act in anyway. Her mindset seems to be ‘if something will benefit me or not’. This tends to leave her at a rather neutral standpoint in most situations as she loathes to be involved in anything that doesn’t directly provide her something. Incredibly observant and critical, Rosa is often lost in the crowd or background when she needs to be. Her silence benefitting her as she uses it to ‘stumble’ upon things she should not know.

Rosa is rarely seen being physically active as she is often lethargic or tired in some capacity. No longer under her parents watchful gaze she is allowing herself to be more free with herself - so it is not unlikely to see Rosa napping during something important or unnecessary. She will also use it to get out of anything she deems rather troublesome or energy consuming. Though it does not seem like at first, Rosa does have her kind streaks. Rather drawn to anything or anyone she deems helpless or trapped (reminding her of her own trapped nature at her parents hand) she will help if possible, though often doing so without allowing her involvement to be involved. Rosa dislikes useless conversation after all.

BIOGRAPHY

Rosa comes from two rather well known individuals - both known to be rather ruthless. Her father is a rather prominent government official that is often seen parading on right wing protests, whereas her mother, though without a career, holds a lot of sway in socialite circles. To anyone who knew them, the couple were joyful, welcoming and kind. At least, as long as you were not opposed to their views or didn’t fit into their image of perfection.

Having a family was always on the cards for her parents. They married earlier into her fathers career and it was shortly after they announced joyous news that they would soon have a new addition to the Valentine home. They named their daughter Rosabel, after her maternal grandmother. The birth was brought along with bad news - her mother was now unable to conceive again due to complications. Her parents had always wanted a larger family, her father at least to have a son as well.

That did not stop the small family from keeping up their public appearances. Neither spoke a word of their situation and instead, paraded the attention on their newborn daughter. To her father, she was the perfect appeal to families in his campaign and to her mother, she was almost a doll. Both loved her surely but they were far more concerned with their perfect image than their daughter.

Most of Rosa’s childhood and early teens reflected this. She was expected to be, dress and act a certain way at all times to avoid tarnishing the perfect family and image her parents treasured. Everything was a fragile image to control for your own benefit. Rosa was rather rebellious in her earlier youth - something she quickly learned to silence by her father who took no mercy to anything he believed challenged him. Especially from his own daughter. Not all was bad from her household, at least Rosa would say, considering she took after her father in some terms.

Rosa learnt a lot from him. What he would call natural charisma, she would call manipulation. An understanding of how to twist words and people to benefit oneself. Though she continued to loathe and wish to escape her parents' hellish world, she rather enjoyed the high society and rich life - she just did not want them around to control her, nor to suffer anymore from her mothers criticism and her fathers rather dangerous reprimands. So, Rosa waited for an opportunity to escape them.

Her wait provided results when she applied and got accepted to Grimsworth school. Both parents were rather confused and lost about her decision to attend a school so far away - however, she easily convinced them by appeasing their egos. She told them she would learn more to one day take over her fathers companies to give him more time to focus on his campaigns. Though the truth, Rosa knew this was a chance to get away from them till she was legally an adult. With their agreement, Rosa got sent to Grimsworth school with the conditions she strived for excellence.

OTHERS

Appearance:
Rosa stands at 5’’8 with warm beige skin and amber eyes. She has a light dusting of freckles across her cheeks and nose alongside rather full lips. She is rather thin, though it has yet to pass an unhealthy level with obvious curves. Her appearance is something she is rather proud of so outside of uniforms she will often wear whatever is in fashion and will never be seen in colours that do not suit her. Her dark brown hair reaches her upper back and is quite wavy which leads her to often have it up or pinned back. Both ears are pierced.

PERSONALITY

She is consistently compared to be nothing like the Abernathy twins - soft, perfect, tame. Although she loves and pities her sisters, she feels nothing but malice towards her mother for the obsessive control she exerted on her daughters. By nature - Luc is a curious, wild child. By nurture - she is dissociated and unpredictable. Luc does everything in her power to upset people, specifically her mother. When she was seven, her mother sent her to the church for an exorcism.

"As if someone like her believed in something holy like God. I knew she just wanted to punish me. So I ratted out the priest for being a pedophilic dog."

Luc enjoys mind games but prefers direct confrontation. She is an emotional human being with a god complex and will act on impulse. However, her ambition is daunting. Resilience is her strength and she has the ability to move forward even if its costs her an arm and a leg. She trusts and relies solely on herself.

She has a careless manner in life, making it difficult to tell when she is lying or serious. Luc is an advocate for her brazen beliefs.

Luc puts on a performance as if her whole life is an act. She has a taste for fashion and theatrics. If it weren't for her loud presence, her doll like features would appear soft. Her allure is feminine, but her bold dominance carries a masculine energy. Placing herself at the centre of the universe, there is a magnetic pull to her. Luc draws eyes and is hard to look away from. She seemingly never has her back turned on anyone and walks as if the world was her stage.

PERSONALITY

Benji isn't naturally gifted. He is earnest and hardworking. However, he does not strike you as studious or someone credited for diligence. Rather, he seems more like the type to be found amongst a group of degenerates, bumming smokes off each other in a dimly lit parking lot.

His lax and easy going character is agreeable for most people; therefore, he has no problem socializing in divergent social circles. Its only his blunt and cut the crap attitude that earns him the title of an asshole.

Due to being raised by a pack of hyenas, Benji developed a blasé mindset to defend himself of the constant jabs and emotional torment. He has a strong mental constitution and does not allow others to easily get under his skin. Although often irritated and annoyed, it is rare for him to express genuine anger.

Surprisingly, he can be quite soft hearted and exhibits compassion to people he has no connection to. His empathy may have sourced from his fathers teachings, as well as babysitting his younger aunts - often acting as their therapist post breakup and scraping them off the cement from dousing themselves in cheap vodka. He will say something isn't his problem but will end up taking care of it anyway.

His fault is that he is a perfectionist with terrible time management. Benji has always taken care of others to the extent that he doesn't know how to take care of himself. He has incredible independence, but barely manages his current life as he feels the anxious need to consummate every inch of it. He will find time to socialize and run amok, while tirelessly working away to match the standards he had set for himself. Although it works for him now, it will come to bite him in the ass one day.

BIOGRAPHY

With a cigarette hanging from his lips, a grin broke his hard expression. "Well done, son."

The sense of pride Benjamin Kovensky felt when handing his dad his first report card was a lasting memory. But it meant more to his old man. It was possible that his kid could actually do something with his life.

"Don't become a low life like me."

From a young age, Benji was accustomed to taking care of others despite his reluctance. While his dad was often locked up, he was raised by his seven aunts who took every opportunity to bully, tease and embarrass him.

It was his decision to accept the scholarship to Grimsworth as its reputation would differentiate him for future opportunities.

OTHERS

➨ Appearance:
He lives unapologetically and his appearance reflects this attitude. Benji is comfortable in his skin - he would have no problem walking around naked if it wasn't considered a felony. He has perfect posture and an athletic body that allows fluidity in his movements. His confidence is unlike arrogance. Despite his height, it doesn't necessarily rub you the wrong way when he looks down at you. Dark features, a pretty face and the body of Adonis that just screams he takes care of himself. Upon first impression he might seem like an irritable and intimidating delinquent, but he becomes easy to approach and bother once you know him.

Miscellaneous:
Academics
Benji's academic excellence is not well known. He usually studies in private and does not talk about himself enough to divulge how important it is to him. His interest is in highly respected fields with large incomes - stonks. He can be very passionate.

Athletics
In order to avoid becoming a financial burden, Benji had doubled up on both academic and athletic scholarships. Although excelling in many sports, he took on swimming and track as his main focus. He wakes up at 5am to train.

Gardening
Benji took on gardening as a child because he wanted to feed his aunts vegetables on a tight budget. Turns out, he really came to like it. Gardening may be the only hobby that he enjoys without the ulterior motive of benefiting his future in some way.

Cooking & Cleaning
He's the type of person that will wipe the condensation off the table and place a coaster under a cup you just put down. Benji has handled the household chores all his life. He cannot stand messy environments and will clean to perfection. His perfectionist tendencies also come out when he cooks. His food is helth, tasty and looks like pieces of art. He also looks thicc in his apron.

Room
His room is extra crispy with all them plants. He keeps some herbs and spices growing in his room. You will not find a speck of dust as he finds time to clean it thoroughly twice a day. Everything is in alphabetical order. There probably isn't any pornography under his bed. It smells of eucalyptus silver drop.

Family
He admires his father and often writes and sends books to him while he's in prison.
His aunts inspire and terrify him.There is a fine line between the respect he has for them and not respecting them at all. Still, he has a great relationship with all seven.
