    Welcome to Mayburn Academy, a criminal rehabilitation center in southern United States. Adults convicted of crimes have the choice to attend Mayburn instead of go to prison. Some have been convicted of shoplifting while others have been convicted of murder; crime records are sealed, though, and no attendee knows who has been admitted for what. The line between mental illnesses and mistakes continues to blur with each passing day, and attendees are left with two choices: adhere to Mayburn's rules in hopes of a better life, or put on a facade until their time is up.

    ~~~~~~
    Welcome to Mayburn Academy for the Misguided and Troubled:

    Mayburn Academy was established as a criminal rehabilitation center in 1985. It is our belief that every man and woman has the potential to grow and change for the better, no matter their past wrongdoings. It is our mission to help you become this better human being so that you may emerge from Mayburn as a more productive, sensible, and rational member of society. In order to ensure that you receive experience in all areas of life, below is a list of classes you will be required to take during your time at Mayburn.

    English Literature
    Computer Science
    Technology
    Biology
    Sociology
    World History
    Art (Choose from drawing, sculpting, or painting)
    Music
    Woodshop or Metalwork


    In addition to attending these classes, you will be required to complete 15 hours of community service per week. You may complete this service by participating at the Academy in the following ways:

    Dorm patrol
    Trash pick-up
    Serving meals in the cafetorium
    Cleaning floors
    Volunteering off-site (MUST be with a Mayburn-appointed officer at all times)
    Assisting a professor or dean with their class after hours (MUST be with a Mayburn-appointed officer at all times)
    *Assistant teaching a class (MUST be with a Mayburn-appointed officer and the regular professor or dean at all times)
    Note: This is only an option for those attendees who have visited all counseling appointments, completed half of their community service, and are cleared by Mayborn hospital staff


    Because we want our attendees to also be active and stay healthy, you may choose one of the following recreational sports to devote an hour to each day:

    Basketball
    Tennis
    Lacrosse
    Volleyball
    Yoga
    Soccer

    Note: any mistreatment of equipment including using sport items to harm peers will result in immediate expulsion from the Academy

    Furthermore, attendees are required to go to single therapy sessions once every day and group therapy sessions once every week. Failure to visit your therapist will increase your hours of community service. Lastly, you may walk about the grounds in between your classes or on your days off, but there is a strict curfew of 10 pm. Dorm patrol will round once in the morning and once at night to make sure all attendees are in their dorms.

    We look forward to inspiring you and helping you on this journey to recovery.

    Name: Cameron Elizabeth Michaels
    Age: 22
    Gender: Female
    Sexual Orientation: Straight
    Biography/Crime: Cameron grew up on the streets on New York City to a crack addict mother and an unknown father. As far as back as she can remember, her life has been filled with drugs, alcohol, and wiping up her mother's vomit. She was admitted into the foster care system when she was twelve years old. During her childhood, her actions were mostly harmless; she hit the other children on the playground, spray-painted school walls, and stole a necklace or two. She was fifteen the first time she was arrested for underage drinking, and she spent the rest of her teen years being bounced around from foster home to foster home, or running away from said foster homes. It was only when she turned eighteen that her life truly took a turn for the worst; it was then that she divulged in the same substances her mother had, and on top of the white powder and smoke, she sold herself to men. When she was arrested for prostitution six months ago, her parole officer gave her a choice: try to get better or spend the rest of her life rotting away in a cell. She opted for Mayburn. Although she's just waiting out her time and has no intention of changing her ways, there's something comfortable about being around people who are more screwed up than she is.

    Biography/Crime:
    Katrina Lilith Santos was born into a family for four in the city of Rochelle, Illinois. Katrina's father wasn't very pleased when he was informed that his newborn was a girl, he instead, was expecting a baby boy. Even though her father wasn't content, her mother on the other hand, was delighted to bring her little bundle of joy home to introduce her to her siblings.

    Katrina's siblings didn't quite give her a warm welcome, despite her lovable nature, they were very negative towards their younger sister; disturbing her in anyway possible, especially Katrina's older sister, Lacey, who tried to make her cry, scaring her by placing a spider in her cot. Despite her being ill-treated by her siblings, she had a fond relationship with them, at least she thought so. She didn't mistreat her sisters in anyway at all, even though the constant bullying dragged on until she graduated high-school.

    At the age of thirteen, Katrina had started to lose herself, due to the fact that her siblings tormented her without their parents' acknowledgement, her siblings doing whatever they wanted to her. They were abusing her in so many different ways; one time, her siblings had used the scissors from their mother's sewing kit and snipped off Katrina's hair until the result became a hairstyle with choppy cuts and an uneven hair length, causing her to wear a cap until all her hair grew back. Katrina was fed up, fed up with her siblings, fed up with her lifestyle, just fed up with everything causing her pain and depression.

    One night, she finally snapped, losing control of her own body and its movements. Katrina tip-toed into the kitchen at the brink of dawn, taking a meat knife and knocking on her siblings' door. Her knife was hid behind her back from her sisters' sight, making sure to conceal it properly. As soon as the door flung open, she put the sharp meat knife to her sister's throat, slitting it carefully, covering her sister's mouth as she did. Katrina repeated this with her other sibling, in the same manner. When it had dawned on her that she had just murdered her sisters, she just gasped at her bloodied self, and the knife that she brandished. She didn't mean for it to happen, to kill her sisters and making the biggest mistake of her life. Tears sprang from her eyes as she saw what she had done, she couldn't forgive herself after that.

    Coincidentally, her parents arrived home as soon as started crying, they gaped at the bloodied girl and at what she had done, shock in their eyes. Her father immediately phoned the police, and quickly ran to the scene. Katrina's siblings were dead. That was when Katrina received a tight slap from her father, leaving a mark there as he berated Katrina angrily in a very loud manner. Her mother just stood there, shocked and disappointed at what she had done, she had barely even moved from the place she initially was.

    As soon as the police arrived, they interrogated the girl, leaving no stone unturned and telling her to feed them every detail. Anger was the last word that came to their minds, knowing that she wouldn't have convicted the crime if her sisters had not tormented her. Sympathy filled the room as Katrina told them every single detail, they knew she had hope and wanted her to change, so they opted the choice for attending Mayburn Academy. Katrina immediately agreed with the idea and was soon to be setting her foot onto the school's grounds.

    Rebecca "Baliey" Vladimir

    Age:
    22

    Gender:
    Female

    Sexual Orentation:
    Bisexual

    Biography/Crime:
    Is anyone ever a good child, cause Rebecca had never been the perfect little angel and had always had a bit of aggressive issues, and mental issues. Her mom had never paid attention and never had unless she was bailing her out of something for doing something. It wasn't into she had gotten married that she actually started paying attention to something that wasn't drugs or work, and it wasn't even to her but her devilish step sister. Her step sister wasn't as horrible at her but she wasn't as angelic as her mom thought her to be. And Rebecca always hated her, too bad that the girl didn't get to live to see the next day.

    She had pissed her off, and she didn't mean to but it just happened. Her step sister started talking and just wouldn't stop no matter how many times she told her to stop. The girl was just putting salt on the wounds and she taught the dumb bitch a lesson. Rebecca had waited to make her move and when she had se pushed too hard and watched as the blonde tumbled down the stairs and end off with a cracked head at the end. Once she had figured out what she had done she packed her bags and got away as soon as possible. Rebecca changed her name to Baliey and when had turned seventeen she had become a fugitive running from the law and trying to make sure she hadn't lost her sanity day by day.

    Life was working for her, living in different shelters and moving when people started asking to many questions. Then it happened, someone at one of the shelters noticed her instantly and called the police and that's when it was over. She was brought into custody with her parents go in her disgusted glares as if she was the monster. SHE WAS THE MONSTER WHEN HIS DAUGHTER COULDNT KEEP HER MOUTH SHUT! From there everything went down hill and she lost her mind slower and slower day by day. At her court hearing she was given the choice, of going to prison or attending Mayburn Academy. And it was a easy choice and before she knew it Baliey was attending the school. Even though her mind had completely lost its self and she was an insane pathological liar who didn't even know herself.

    What could she say...it wasn't her fault that her step sister was a bitch.

  15. Character Sheet:
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Name: Sebastian Ray Owens
    Age: 22
    Gender: Male
    Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
    Biography/Crime: Sebastian was the third born to two parents in the middle class society. Since he was a kid getting into trouble was natural to him. He was always in fights with anyone no matter the age and size. His father decided on putting Bass into boxing so that he could learn to channel his aggression but that just trained Sebastian more on fighting and defense. By middle school the fighting had gotten worse and Bass was kicked out from two schools and placed in alternative school. Alternative school was no better if anything it was worse since all the kids there had anger problems and messed up pasts and were looking for a fight. When Sebastian was sixteen he was coming back from a party and he noticed a few guys harassing some girl. When he told them to leave her alone the three guys simply flicked him off and went back to the girl. He watched as the girl struggled and when the guys began to touch her Sebastian went over and swung at the first guy and then tackled the second. Even though Bass was outnumbered he was much faster and stronger then the three put together. He ignored the other two's attempt to kick and pull him off their friend but it was useless.

    When he was finished with one he wiped the blood from his lip and then hit the second guy putting him down for the count. That's when the third guy thought it would be a smart to grab a brick and swing it at Bass and with all the rage built up everything went blank. It took his a moment to realize what he had done. He had the the brick in his hand and it was covered in blood and he could feel some on his face. The guy under him face was so badly beating it was damn near unrecognizable and Sebastian was in shock. It wasn't long before the police came and his parents soon after. The girl told the cops that he was protecting her from the three guys and that was the only reason he had some leniency on his charges.

    Since he was sixteen and a minor he was placed in juvie for two years with community service and prescribed meds for his anger. When he got out it wasn't long before he had found himself in some trouble and the only choice he had left now was M..A.M Academy so that he could "clean up his act". Sebastian doesn't know what this place is going to do for him, all he knows is that he's going to be around people who have problems like him and worse and the last thing he needs is to get kicked out.
