This school offers programs not only to aspiring musicians and actors, but models, fashion designers, dancers, and authors as well.

    Weaknesses:
    "I like to think I've only got a few."
    . Although Jenna can fit into small places, she prefers not to. She's short and small, which makes her easy to over look. Jennifer also has a horrible sense of smell .


    [​IMG]
    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS
    Current Goal/Purpose:
    "La La La La La La LAA"
    . Singer .

    Aspirations:
    "I aspire to be a great singer, if that's what you mean."
    . Perform in big stadiums and have sold out concerts .

    Hobbies:
    "Singing, obviously..."
    . Cheerleading, is something Jenna has always loved doing. Jennifer also enjoys singing, and is quite good at it. She occasionally participates in a choir, if she has the time, and enjoys going to karaoke night with her girlfriends. Lastly, she volunteers at a local animal shelter whenever she can .

    Talents:
    "Again, the obvious answer for this is singing..."
    . Jennifer has always had a way with animals, especially dogs. She can mimic other peoples voices, and is able to think critically. Jenna also has an amazing singing voice, and can play the guitar .

    Inabilities:
    "Eh, we've all gotta be bad at something, right?"
    . Jennifer has never really been able to take criticism from others, and she's a horrible liar. She's terrible with mathematics and science, and has a terrible memory. Finally, Jennifer is hilariously bad at all sports, except for Cheer leading and Gymnastics .

    Fears:
    "Bees are scary, man."
    . When Jennifer was young she discovered she was allergic of bees, and has been afraid of them ever since. She's also not a fan of clowns, but that's a whole other story in itself. For some reason, Jenna is afraid of birds, especially crows. Her biggest fears are rejection and failure .

    Personality:
    "I like to think I'm pretty cool..."
    . Jennifer is very much a people pleaser. She always puts other peoples needs before her own, which often gets her into a lot of trouble. However, she continues to do it because she just wants to make people happy. Also because she fears rejection, especially that of her peers. She is often described as selfless, kind and helpful. Jenna has always had a hard time hurting peoples feelings, and will tell a lie to avoid doing so. Jenna is extremely talkative, and once you get her going it's nearly impossible to make her shut up. She's very determined, and is always setting goals for herself. She is easily manipulated, and often becomes dependent on her friends. She doesn't outwardly show it, but Jenna is very insecure with who she is, and is often trying to reshape herself into someone she thinks everyone will like. At times she can be a bit naive, but that's just because she wants to believe that there is good in everyone. .

    History:
    "I prefer to look forward."
    . It was decided before Jenna was even born that she would be given up for adoption. In fact, a family was already said to adopt her by her due date, and she was instantly handed over to them. It wasn't until Jenna was seven that she discovered this. Her and her brother were playing doctor, and so she was using her medical papers. Upon reading them and asking her parents, Jenna was devastated to hear that her birth mother never wanted anything to do with her, before they even got the chance to meet. This is what perhaps brought Jenna's fear of rejection to the surface, because from then on out she did everything she could to make people like her. When she turned eight, Jenna joined cheer leading. Although she had started later than most girls, she drove herself to be the best she could possibly be, and very quickly became the top of her team. She's been cheer leading ever since, both competitively and for her high school. Despite knowing she was adopted, Jennifer has always had a great deal of love for her family, and is very close with all of them, especially her brother .

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND
    • General History
    He was born to two farmers in the Kentucky countryside- he was raised on silent films and the occasional romantic comedy when his aunts and uncles came over. He started reading at a very young age, and when his favorite books were adapted into screenplays, he would fret when the characterization was just slightly off. At the age of 13, he decided that he would make a change, struggling currently with his ADHD, and with all his might, he decided to become an actor. He joined community theatre, and worked his ass of to get to Nightfall. The only thing he misses is his parents- they were extremely close.

    General Personality
    A determined individual with a sunny disposition to boot, Marius drives himself to achieve his best in whatever he puts his mind to. But plagued with thoughts and expectations of his parents, his drives are usually misguided and misdirected to things he feels his parents want from him. They don't usually voice their opinions or wants of him and when asked, they'd most likely say, "Whatever makes you happy," but Marius knows better, far better than anyone else. There's more in what one doesn't say than what actually comes out of their mouth and both his parents, a model with a chemical engineering PhD and a high and mighty Hollywood director, are capable of being very expressive even when they don't mean it. It's their vacant stares at his enthusiasm for books and writing that break his heart and their subtle frowns and the twitch of an eyebrow at his failures in simple subjects that bring him further down. It's quite a large he reason he doesn't think highly of himself, but rather uses his parents' opinions and expectations for substitutes as to what he should think or feel.

    A vast intellect he gets from his mother and a slight paranoia he garnered from his father, both of which, put together, actually makes quite an imaginative mind. Well, maybe the imaginative part was something entirely different, but being what he is now takes quite a creative mind to continue pursuing. His parents, however, feel he needs a different creativity about him. A more hands on application of his skins rather than simply hiding behind the cover of a book or blending into a crowd of starving artists. They have their opinions and it most definitely imposes on his own, regardless of what he actually feels over the subject.

    A people person through and through, Marius' optimism and general lackadaisical manner attract many different kinds of people. That's the careful engineering of a father worried for his own son's social and mental anxiety, something he has to watch for every day of his life. Marius didn't get hit quite as hard by the mental woes of his father, but the quiet nagging in the back of his mind is still very well there and when Marius is listening, it makes a deal of things difficult. Of course, he tries his best to be as kind as possible and generous whenever the time wills it. However, some days are not as great and Marius can slip into a rather cold demeanor, often willingly brushing people off in order to hone in on himself. Though cold and disregarding is often his default just for the fact that Marius can be a tad over focused or tunnel visioned when doing something. He likes people plenty, but sometimes he just needs a moment alone; everyone does, once in a while.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    [​IMG]

    General History
    Reputation is everything to a family so high in the rankings as the Rothschilds, with a father renowned for his work in films and his mother a reputable scholar, as well as a wealthy model, the expectations put upon Marius from birth have always been near insurmountable. Genes helped in the process, landing him a modelling career just for the fact that he was his mother's child. His name grew in the business as he did and found himself alongside his mother in work. Of course, it'd be years before he ever reached their full heights, but that was just one stepping stone among many others.

    School, however, was an entirely different manner and his parents took to acquiring him the best of educations within the UK and even places within mainland Europe. Exceeding well in his subjects, minus mathematics. It was just starting out in his middle school years that Marius found the wonders of English Literature, reading, but mainly writing. Of course, his parents thought it a passing phase and Marius made them believe it so, however writing staid with him well into even his high school years. And he did just as well in his education as he did his career, as his mother thought it one of the most important things. There was more than just her style that she provided to the world, but her intelligence and wealth of knowledge. She felt the same for her child and if he would have a place in the world, he'd have it in both spectrum of entertainment and the sciences. His father didn't much care, but supported her decision in the matter nonetheless—only the best for their child.

    Of course, raised in a society that provided in excess usually meant a spoiled child. With parents like his, however, Marius was far from it. They believed very much in earning the privileges gained with hard work and Marius grew with that lesson at the forefront of his mind. Though he was indeed provided with the necessities, Marius worked for the things he wanted, or rather his parents may have wanted. That didn't mean, however, that Marius knew the actual hardships of those in economic classes lower than he and he didn't quite pretend to. He did know, very well, how to work for what he wanted and that, with the innate diligence of his personality, remained ingrained inside of his consciousness.

    All of this, combined with the fact that he did, in fact, possess a modicum of talent worthy enough to be noticed, garnered him a first class ticket to Nightfall Academy, much to his parents approval. This meant a whole lot of things and the main one being the fact that he was now free to make his own choices without his parents breathing down his neck. It's not that they were actually that imposing upon their only son, it was more the fact that it almost always did feel as if they were watching and judging aloof from their respectable thrones. Such a thing put a lot of weight upon a child of his age and, to this day, it remains one of the sole motivations behind Marius' actions—something he intensely regrets.

    Maybe they wouldn't quite notice if he piled on an extra course or two or maybe switched entirely.
