Name: James McAvoy Age: 16 Personality: James is the polar opposite of his father, he is kind, calm and actually very shy. he prefers books over people and spends hours in their library. He enjoys things his father always takes for granted, like the scenery of where they live and the complex beauty of the written word. While he is very shy, once you get him to open up he is a very bright and determined young man. Bio: James is the eldest and only son of the McAvoy family, he has one other sibling and that is his little sister Emilia. She is 12 years old and is very much like their mother who is a social butterfly. She is always hosting parties at their home and James is always doing his best to avoid said parties. When he was little he never partook in sports and instead sat in the library reading all the books he could. While his mother encouraged his intellectual prowess his father detested how weak his son was. When his study's began at age seven he was given an English tutor who was a complete bore. By age twelve James was the one teaching his tutor, and his mother and father began to notice how he was not challenged in the least and he began to skip his tutoring sessions which his father did not like. So they began to search for a new tutor for him and came across the name Michael Fassbender, a German tutor who was supposed to be very good at what he does, especially when it came to stubborn students. Pic: _______________________________________ James had been informed several days ago that his new tutor would be here Monday morning, a room already set up for him. He had wanted to protest, since in the last few weeks without a tutor he had been able to focus on literature and history rather than all the boring subjects that came with studying business. However he knew that if he even tried to protest his father would be furious with him and the last thing he wanted was to anger his father again. The last time he had been beat so harshly that he hadn't been able to sit properly for several days. So he simply wallowed in silence, dreading the idea of yet another witless tutor trying to teach him things he already understood and did not care much about at all. On Monday morning James woke with a nauseating sense of dread. He wanted nothing more than to hide in the corner of the library and pretend that this wasn't the day that his tutor Michael Fassbender would be making his appearance. Of course he instead forced himself to be somewhat social with his family as he went down to breakfast and ate with only his sister and mother, since his father was most likely to busy to join them. They weren't exactly a close nit family, so breakfast was mostly them eating in comfortable silence, until his mother decided to inform him that this Friday he was to attend a party the family had been invited too. He bit back a groan and simply nodded in understanding. Once he was finished with his breakfast of fresh fruits and warm oatmeal the servants came and cleared his plate. He was more than relieved to finally be able to escape to the third floor library. Despite the fact his father did not approve of his love for literature they still had row after row of some of the best pieces of literature and James has practically read them all. He began to browse through the plethora of books, looking for something to sit down and read for awhile. His fingertips brushed over the delicate spines of the books as he scanned row after row. Eventually he ended up picking up one of his favorite novels. The Red and the Black by Stendhal, Roger Gard. He took the worn paperback over to one of the red couches that sat in the back corner of the library, it was his little safe haven, where he could hide away from the world and get lost in another universe. He sat down on the worn red couch and tucked his legs underneath him as he opened to book to page one. It was not long until he was completely engrossed in the novel, his blue eyes intently focused on the words in front of him and he was completely oblivious to the rest of the world.
