    Family comes in many different forms. It can be your biological family, your nonbiological family, or even your friends. No matter what form it decides to come in, family is family. And you love your family all the same.

    This is a slice-of-life roleplay that is centered around a specific family that isn't all biologically related. They live in Rocklin, California and go to school at Birchburgh, which goes from Kindegarten and all the way up to the 12th grade. We'll roleplay the ups and downs of a family who, even though not blood-related, love each other just as much as a family who is blood-related.

    ♦ Full Name ♦
    Ace Diamond King
    ♦ Nickname ♦
    ♦ Age ♦

    ♦ Sexuality ♦
    Bisexual Panromantic
    ♦ Position ♦
    ♦ Personality ♦
    Rebellious - Ace is the type to push one's buttons, especially one of an authority. When you lay rules and restrictions in front of him, he'll try to find ways to bend them to his will instead of actually following them. And, if that doesn't work, then he'll just break them and try his best to get away scot-free. You tell him not to do something and he'll do the exact opposite. It's either to let you know that you don't control him, or because he just feels like it. Either way, he is a young man who marches to the beat of his own drum and will go against whoever tries to change it.
    Sarcastic - He's been told many times that he has a sharp tongue and his mouth would get him in the worst kind of trouble, which turns out to be true a lot of the time. Unable to control it, Ace has the worst mouth, especially when he's upset. Half of the time, the things that he says aren't meant to be seen as sarcastic, but they come out that way. Not only is his speech sarcastic, but so is his body language. Eye rolling, dull looks, and fake, sarcastic smiles are things that he is very talented in and do a lot, if one watches him. Among his peers, and even family members, he's earned the title "King of Sass".
    Reserved - Ace isn't the one to reveal his emotions to others, even if you're really close with him. He isn't the one to shoot their hand up to answer a question, even if he knows the answer immediately. He doesn't like to bring unwanted attention to himself and, according to him, all attention is unwanted, unless it's from friends and/or family members. The brunet could have the most amazing idea, but would never speak on it. He could be hurting deeply inside, but wouldn't let anyone else know about. He likes to keep things to himself and will never change.
    Protective - Although Ace is small, that doesn't mean that he'll let people walk all over him or his loved ones. When he stands up to others, it's like a Chihuahua against a German Shepherd, but we all know how feisty Chihuahua's can be, which is exactly how Ace is. He will never hesitate to call someone out on whatever they're doing, especially if it's wrong. When he feels like his loved ones or himself is being threatened, he will give his all to protect whoever it is. Because of his strong will, the brunet isn't one to back down without a fight, even if the odds are stacked against him. He will do anything to protect what is his.
    Stubborn - Ace's stubbornness goes hand in hand with a lot of his other personality traits. Besides that, the young teen knows what he wants and will always be determined to get it. When he sets his mind on something, he's like a mountain - it'll take a miracle to make him budge. A lot of persuasion and bribing is in order if one wants to change the direction of Ace's mind. And one can't bribe him with little things, they'd have to give their all. Sometimes, his stubbornness can come in handy when he's standing for what's right. But it can also get him in trouble when he's trying to do things he isn't suppose to be doing.
    Stoic - As said before, Ace is quite emotionless. Although it isn't good for him, he can go through rough times without saying a single word about his struggle. His face can remain completely blank and you wouldn't even know the turmoil going on inside of him. Him being him, he doesn't like people doting over him so he keeps to himself when things get hard. During his parents' tragic past, he had a blank face at their funeral while everyone else sobbed around him, refusing to let any hint of grief show. He was quiet for the next few days, not wanting anyone's comfort. Slowly, he's learning to confide in others, but it's a long process.

  7. The Breadwinner

    "People say I look like George Clooney. I'd say, you're right. But much more handsome."

    Full Name:
    Benjamin Lionel King

    "You can also call me: BJ, Leon, Jamin mah man, Yo B, Your Majesty, My Lord King, or Dick."

    48 years old
    "And yet, I still look damn cute."


    "I'm as straight as a board."

    "I am a father of nth beautiful children. They're a bit of a handful, but I still love them all."

    Carefree and Laid-back
    "Come. Sit down. Have a beer with me."
    Once upon a time, Ben was once a hard-working, tenaciously diligent and very influential young man who made millions off of handling people. And he handled them all well. But even with his fame, money and power, he is the type to just hang around his house in his underwear (sometimes naked) and just sit back, relax and have a cold beer while watching cartoons on his days off. Even after he decided to retire early from being an agent, got married, put up his own sport gear shop and had kids, he'd still walk around the house in his underwear but instead of a cold refreshing beer, he'd have cereal and a juice box while watching cartoons with Rhiannon.

    Happy-go-lucky Conceited Jerk
    "Ha ha. Me? Sarcastic? Never."
    Ben is a talker, a real talker, a smooth real talker and is very good at it. In fact, he is so good people can't tell if he is being serious, sarcastic, or joking. And he enjoys/loves it.

    Tenaciously Secretive
    "Nope. I am not hiding anything."
    Forget ever trying to figure out whatever Ben is hiding because he would NEVER tell you anything you want to know. He hides his secrets safe and hides it very well. Not even his wife and his sister would know what skeletons he is hiding behind his closet.

    Mild-mannered Vigilante
    "No one treats my family that way!"
    Don't get Ben wrong, he's no super hero nor the type who would end world huger, but mess with his family and his principle then evil-doers beware. No one mess with the B-man and his crew.

    Strictly Lovingly Gracious
    "You may not have came from me. But to me, you are my most precious child. I love you."
    Despite Ben's temperament that made a name of himself, he is in fact a very loving and gracious family man. He puts his family first and foremost, even quit his high paying career and opened shop just so he can be close to his family. But don't mistake his kindness as sympathy, on the contrary, he is known for his tough love when it comes to caring for someone and raising his kids.

    Health Ailments:
    "They told me I got cancer. ...Nah! Just kidding. I am perfectly healthy!"


    Sports Gear Shop Owner
    "I was once a sports agent. And I was really good."

    Biological Family:
    Candace Layla King
    "No guns allowed in the house, please."
    Candace, or CeeCee is Ben's lovely sister whom he would always
    tease her about when she would finally find the right guy and settle down with.

    Romantic Interests/Significant Other:
    My wife
    "The old ball and chain."

    Anything else?:
    The perks in being an agent was Ben's connections with different kinds of people which made Ben an untouchable guy. Whenever Ben needs or wants something done and with just a phone call away, Ben can do anything done in a flash. Which is why people are afraid to shrew with the guy.

    His Beard
    Ben purposely let his beard grow because he just felt like it. But once shave... Well, let's just say he'll look waaaaay cuter then he is now.

  8. Well, using real life pictures of people I don't know creeps me out and is against my moral code. I wouldn't want someone using a picture of me, so I'm not going to do that to someone else. If that's a problem I can back out.
  9. Yeah i get that, i would feel that way also, but you can always use an actor, since actors are used in film all the time, pretty much the same as a picture.
  10. Full Name:

    Alexandria Berrington (???- Related to Benjamin somehow)
    Shardae King (Non biological niece)
    Rhiannon King (Non biological niece)
    Ace King (Non biological nephew)

    Romantic Interests?:
    Significant Other?:
    Anything else?:
    Candace is an avid hunter who goes on hunting trips every month no matter what the weather. She has a great respect for endangered species and carnivores though, so she doesn't kill those. She's the type of person who thinks that anyone's problems can be solved by a trip to the shooting range and often invites her nieces and nephews for some trigger happy cathartics.
    When she isn't hunting, she's actually doing her job which is private investigating for people who think their spouses are cheating or their children are hanging with the wrong crowd.
