    • The School of Life is a very special school. It takes in all sorts of kids from orphans sent there because they are too difficult to place, kids who've been kicked out of other schools for various reasons, last chance kids who chose this over reform school or juvie, and even some kids sent there by parents who think they need a kick in the pants.
      The schools philosophy is different than most schools. There are high expectations, but the adults don't get involved a lot. Adults simply supervise and teach. If there is a need for adult intervention like a fight breaks out or there is an emergency than adults will step in and help, but other than that they prefer for the kids to hand themselves.
      The students are expected to keep their grades up, keep their personal spaces orderly, help and support other students, and lastly the students are expected to work at various places on the school grounds. At the end of each month students are paid based on their performance. If you slacked you will get less than those who worked hard. To teach responsibility older students are assigned to newer and younger students to help them.
      The goal of the school is to raise adults who can go out into the real world and know how to work and be responsible citizens without feeding off the system. When children are released at 18 they are given all their savings from living in the school and recomendation letters from the adults they worked with.




      LOCATION/CAMPUS:
      The school located near the Mississippi near the Pearl River. The nearest town, Florence, is about 20 miles away. The school has a small crop and animal farm.
      When you drive down the long private road you will pass a field with animals on your right and crops on your left. You will first come to a small parking lot and a large stone building that is the school house and in-processing center.
      Behind the school is a network of dirt paths that go to various locations on the campus.
      Go to the left and you'll be led to a barn with a chicken coop on the wall facing the field where the animals are during the day.
      Go to the right and you'll find another barn with farming equipment and even further on, near the river, you'll find a greenhouse. The field stretch out the way you entered though they aren't very big.
      If you keep going straight you'll come to another fork in the road. This time if you go the right you'll get to a stone path and a small grouping of building. These are the workshops where kids learn mechanics, carpentry, and other skills.
      If you go the left at the second fork you'll come to town sqaure type place of dirt. On the left are two large stone houses and on the right are two stone houses. Straight in front is a small stone house that almost backs up the river. These are the dorms.
      HOUSING INFO: Each large stone house is a dorm building and is able to house up to 24 children. It has a kitchen, a rec room, a laundry room, and 6 rooms that hold 4 children each. All 6 bedrooms are on the second floor along with 3 bathrooms.
      The smaller stone house is for the over-night adult staff.


      SCHOOL SECRET:
      Every Sunday night if you to the edge of the school property down on the river banks you'll see a small group of young adults and students. Here is where kids can get cigarettes, alcohol, and whatever they aren't allowed to buy. The ring is run by some young adults in town who don't feel they earn enough at their own jobs or have no jobs. Staff does not currently know about, a downside to low supervision, and not even all the students know about it.





    • RULES:

      ~Posts & Language & Literacy~

      Please Try To Limit The Cussing.

      Keep all OOC to this thread. No RPing takes place here, only OOC and forms are here.

      I prefer at least a small paragraph per character, but 2+ lines at the very least please...

      Try To Have Proper Spelling...I know spelling is hard for some people(Like me), but use google and the built in spellcheck. (I accept both British and American spellings don't worry I'm not a jerk. :-P)

      Do not make this into a 1x1 and go pages with one other RPer and ignore everyone else. If you've gone three times back and forth with out anyone else posting pause and wait for for another person to get on.



      ~Characters~

      You Can Have As Many Characters As You Want, But Please Keep Genders Even {No Twenty Girls And One Guy}

      Please Keep All Of Your Characters Active... I Understand It Can Be Hard Sometimes, But Post For All Of Them At Least Once Every Three Pages.

      You May NOT Use Anime Or Cartoons For This RP, All Images Should Be Of Real People {Or Animals}

      Romance is fine however both players must be willing and any hokey pokey must fade to black. Nothing more than light kissing and like hand holding.

      No Mary-Sues, Gary-Sues, Or God-Modding. Powerplaying should not be an issue since there are, simply put, no powers, but there is none of that either.



      ~Reading~
      I expect you to read the rules and basically understand everything. If you have a question please ask

      :3. If you have read this write your characters favorite color somewhere in the form.



      ~RPing~

      Wait To Be Accepted By Me or a Co-GM(@Icystorm) Before RPing.

      No Power-Playing, Mary-Sues, Gary-Sues, Or God-Modding.

      You May NOT Be Your Own Crush, Boyfriend/Girlfriend, Fiance, Or Spouse {Mates For Animals may have both sides played by the same user}.

      No transgender because it's too confusing for me to display and makes things way compicated for housing placement and stuff.

      Don't Ignore Someone, And If A Recap Or Repost Is Asked For Be Friendly And Kind And Try To Give It To The Person. Nobody likes a jerk! Be nice people.



      ~Have Fun!~

      The Most Important Rule Of All... If You Don't Have Fun, Then There's No Point To The RP. Keep The Drama And Romance And Action Coming. But Beware, I Will Add More Rules If I Need To

    • STUDENT INFO:
      Students are split into houses by gender. The school believes that mixing ages promotes responsibility, however rooms are splits by age. Ages 12-14 are in the same rooms and ages 15-18 are in the same rooms.
      When students first arrive they are provided with clothes if needed, hygiene supplies, bedding, and school supplies. However after the initial supplying they are supposed to provide and pay for their own with the money provided.
      Students have schools 5 days a week and there is work 6 days a week. Sunday is considered a free day and students can go to religious services or just relax. Every night, if s student manages his time right, there is free time to relax and write to family.
      Homework handed out is minimal because the school believes is more detrimental than helpful. Mostly homework given out is reading or papers.
      Students' schedules are not forced upon them. If you choose to not show up for school or work you lose pay.
      The only required show up is every morning at 6:00 Am and every evening at 9:30 PM an adult staff members takes roll call at each house. Other than that the adults stay out of the kids schedules.
      Twice a month there is a trip to town for kids to pick up hygiene supplies and whatever they needs. It is scheduled by house and not everyone can go every time. One month the girl houses will go and the next the boys will go.
      Students are released either when they turn 18 or when they graduate high school.
      Students earn anywhere from 0$-80$ a month.


      CONTACTING FAMILY & FRIENDS
      Students are allowed to contact their family and friends however they are not allowed personal electronics(Like laptops and phones) because the school believes it is distracting from the purpose and teaching kids how to handle life.
      Students are encouraged to write home whenever they want and every night they are allowed to call home.
      Calling home is considered a privilege not a right. After work everyday students are given a token that is worth 10, 15, or 20 minutes of phone time. Students who have no one to call either choose to get earn a chip or they give, trade/barter, and sell their chips to other students. (While this behavior is frowned up on by the staff they will not stop it unless it becomes a problem. EX: if students ask for sexual favors in trade of phone tokens or the trade involves something illegal)

      Each house has a phone room on the first floor that has a desktop pay phone and an egg timer in it. Students time starts as soon as they dial the number they are calling which can only be done after the token is inserted. The egg timer is in case a student wants to keep track of his time during the conversation.

      Chips do not bank time. If you use a 15 minute toke, but only talk for 10 minutes you do not get time back.

      Most houses have a rule that no one may hang out near the phone room while someone is in it even if that person is waiting in line. How that rule is enforced pends on the Head Kid.

      Every night the head kid goes in and uses a key to unlock the phone. Then s/he takes all the tokens in the phone to the adult house and turns them in so they can be re-used.

      Family and friends are allowed to visit during Open House.


      MEDICAL INFO:

      If a student takes prescription medication they are in charge of taking them and are not reminded by staff. Whenever they need a refill they are taken to get one.

      Any and all check ups needed are done by a doctor that takes the insurance the school uses.

      The school covers most medical bills however if a student gets injured doing some stupid like attempting par-cour when they shouldn't, fighting, etc they are expected to pay a certain percentage of the bill decided upon by the head of school.

      Adult staff(General Supervisors) perform random 'pill checks' to ensure students are not abusing and selling prescription medications. While they want kids to have freedom to choose they also do not want to risk being shut down or a lawsuit because students abused prescription medications.


      SCHEDULE:

      School day goes from 8 AM- Midday and then after that students do work/vocational training until 6:00 PM.

    • HOUSE DESCRIPTION(S):
      GIRLS-
      HOUSE #1:

      House #1 is a an L shaped gray stone building with a dark green shingled roof. It is placed on the lower right portion of the dirt square where all the dorms are with the straight up part of the L pointing towards the river and the lower part of the L parralell to the end of the dirt square farthest from the river.

      The door is an old handmade wood door that has been there since the school was founded. It is a rectangular door made of vertical planks that have gray slightly with age. Halfway down the door in a horizontal plank and on the top half of the door is a window split in fourth by mullions.

      On the bottom floor there is on large window on the back of the river pointing part of the L, two windows on either side of the door, a small above-the-sink window on the non-river pointing part of the L, and

      On the river pointing wing of the L there are three windows in the back(The side that does not look over the square) and two longer narrower fogged windows on the side that faces the square.

      On the lower part of the L there are also three windows on the side that faces away from the square and two narrow fogged windows on the side that faces the square.

      There are no windows on the small ends of the L on the upper story.

      The door in on the side of the L that points towards the river about 1/4 of the way down that side from the corner. When you first enter you walk into the recreation room. There is a beat up L shaped faded blue couch facing an old chipped white TV hutch with an older looking TV in it. Behind the couch and two your right is a fooseball table that was donated to the school and even more to the right and around the corner is a wall. Against that wall in the far corner is an L shaped book case filled with books and old issues of magazines. There is a fuzzy neon green rug and a two been bags one gray and one pink.

      The floors of the house are an old wood with varied darknesses and the walls of the rec room are a light gray-purple.

      There is an opening to the wall near the square facing wall that leads into the kitchen/dinning room.

      Walking into the Kitchen/Dinning room the first thing you see is a round wood table with four mismatched wood chair shoved into the corner. Turn to your right and there is a long bar where food is normally set for kids to come and get. All the cabinetry is chipped white and the counters are a marbled dark gray. Walk past the long bar and you enter the kitchen area. There is an oddly light blue fridge on the inside wall and a white top-opening freezer. There are top cabinets and under the counter cabinets. Against the far wall is the oven and a gas stove and above that is a microwave. There is a dishwasher next to an industrial style sink on the wall across from the fridge and freezer. There is a small window above the sink.

      The floors are a black and white checked and the walls are off white with actual white pinstripes.

      If you turn around and go back through the rec room there is a set of stairs that leads to the top. It's a set of stairs and then a landing and then another set of stairs. Continue past the stairs and you will see a narrow hallway that goes between two rooms. The hallway is short and ends at the wall quickly. Turn to your left and there is a solid door. Enter the door and you have come into the phone room.

      There is a desk made out of two filing cabinets with a board lay across them. On top is a desktop pay phone that is a faded black from years of use. There is also a small notepad, a pen, and an off white egg timer on the desk. There is an old brown faux leather office chair in them room, but that is all the furniture.

      The floors are a biege shaggy carpet and the walls are dark green.

      When you leave the phone room and go across the hall you get to a swinging white door. Go in and you have come to the laundry room. On your right are a washer and dryer squeezed in so they barely fit side by side and on your left are two washers with two dryers on top. In front of you is a small cheap wood book case with some laundry detergent and dryer sheets.

      Upon going on the stairs if you go straight down the hall that points towards the river you will be in the older kids wing. On your left, the side of the house that faces away from the dirt square are three doors leading to each of the dorm rooms. On your right half way down in the door to the bathroom.

      The floors and stairs are the same as the rec room and the walls are a medium-dark purple.

      The older girls bathroom is tiled with large minitish green tiles on the floor and tinier mint tiles halfway up the wall. The tope line of tiles is black. The walls are a light gray above the tiled part.. There are four toilet stalls on your immiediate left when you first walk in, a long white speckled counter with three tin colored sinks along the wall with the windows and to your right is another wall with an opening that leads to the four shower stalls. The showers are the same color as the tiles except not tiled.

      Down the other wing of the house is the younger girls side. Their bathroom has pale dingy pink tiles with tiny tiles on the wals and bigger tiles on the floor. The very top row of the tiles on the wall his a row of navy blue tiles. The bathroom is set up the same as the older girls with four bathroom stalls on the immiedate left, a long speckled white counter on the wall with the windows with three tin color sinks. The showers are too the right and are the same pink color as the tiles except not tiles. The shower curtains are also the cheap white plastic ones.

    ~Character~
    Personality:
    • Observant – Seraphina is not loud by any means. She would rather watch her surrounds, looking for weaknesses in her enemies. This contributes to her amazingly detailed memories. When she has a target for her wrath, you can bet she is secretly keeping tabs on the poor soul. Her quiet manners may seem intimidating and cold to others who does not know her.
    • Smart – Due to her good memory, her ability to learn and retain knowledge is greatly enhanced. She does not hide her book smarts either. She takes pleasure in making people she does not like feel dumb in class. Seraphina would never belittle disabled ones or people who has difficulty learning, she sees to hurt innocent people. Her intelligence and pride can get her in trouble, before coming to the school, she would regularly flaunt her technical skills to who she thought were her friends. This of the many reasons for her getting caught by the government.
    • Humorous – Seraphina takes the world with a grain of salt. Due to her horrendous background, Seraphina tries to find refuge in fun things. She regularly makes jokes around her friends, and makes an effort to turn a bad situation into a funny one.
    • Fighter – Seraphina has never been known to back down. Even to authority figures she has a strong rebellious spirit. Though she does not go around fist fighting, if someone wants to take it outside Seraphina would be the first one out in the schoolyard. She works out regularly to keep herself fit, and in top fist throwing shape. Being a proud fighter often fills her with adrenaline, influencing her to take many opportunities to undermine authority figures around her.
    • Curious – Seraphina did not have access to books and other luxuries at home, so she takes every opportunity to learn things. She questions everything around her, and even sometimes question why her parents left her. She has hacked into the adoption agency to see who her parents were, but only her mother was on the birth certificate. Even though she is curious, she hardly ever asks questions about the things she does not know. she would rather do the research on her own.
    • Proud – despite her less than stellar background, Seraphina is proud of who she is. She strives to better herself every day, to put distance between that scared little girl who always got punched around. Her pride gets the best of her, not allowing her to call for help when things get hairy. She also tends to be more vain the others in her circumstance, using make up to cover up her many scars on her body.

    Likes: electronics, books, learning, working out, alcohol,
    Dislikes: snobs, ignorant people, drugs
    Hobbies: reading, swimming, researching, hacking, painting, puzzle games
    Talents: swimming, technical savvy, crafty
    Weaknesses: boys she likes, money, her blood parents
    Fears: heights, complete darkness, being poor
    Favorite Food: fully loaded burritos
    Favorite Color: Purple
    Favorite Animal: turtles



    History: Seraphina was born out of an affair. Her father, a wealth Astrophysicist, met her mother during a lecture he was giving on chemistry at Curtis Institute of Music. Soo-jin was a freshman international student from South Korea. David noticed her, and extended his stay at the college to track her down. Dropping in on her recital class a few days later, he became infatuated with her after listening to her cello playing. He started coming to her public recitals and sometimes her rehearsals when his work permitted him to visit. After drawing up the courage to ask Soo-jin out, David took a job near her school as a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. This allowed them to become inseparable. This affair, unknown to soo-jin, lasted until her senior year when she became pregnant. Since they were not married, and coming from a strict and wealthy household herself, this would mean a scandal and the risk of being disowned from her family. The day she told David about the baby, David’s wife came to town. Everything was revealed. Grieve stricken, Soo-jin cut all contact with David. David never knew what happened to his child, because as soon as the baby was born, Soo-jin gave it away. Unfortunately, Merina was adopted into an abusive family, that regularly beat and starved her. Merina soon learned how to defend her at an early age, even fighting kids at school who bullied her for her hair. Merina had to learn to accept her situation, building up a fighting spirit. She made money by jail breaking phones and fixing computers, and soon became the popular student. Even though she was determined to get out of her horrible home life, the law caught up with her when she was caught peddling stolen phones and hacking into the government database to try to emancipate herself illegally. This landed her in the school of Life at the tender age of 14.
    Extra: Merina learned how to swim after she got to the school, and is one of the best now. She has not had a real romantic relationship with a boy, and gets uncharacteristically shy around guys she likes. She still hacks and fixes computers for extra cash, but under the radar now. She knows about the Sunday night trading, and sometimes gets parts and tools she can not gleen from the school as well as take small amounts of jobs from the locals. She wears a pretty good disguise so no one recognize her, in an effort to not have the past repeat.

    History:

    Pete was born in Bulgaria. Her mother was very young and abandoned her behind a resteraunt when she was just a week old. She was taken to an orphanage and lived there until she turned 5.
    At 5 she was kicked out into the streets because she was too old for the baby home and all the older institutions were either too full for her or she wasn't 'disabled' enough for. Pete started smoking at around 6 or 7 to help herself cope with what was going on in her life.
    Pete was taken in by a human trafficking ring because they promised to feed her and 'be her family'. She was forced into prostitution and when she was 8 she was transported to America, more specifically New Orleans, LA. There was a raid on her brothel when she was 10. The FBI busted in with guns and yelling and arrested a bunch of people.
    Pete tried to run away afraid of what authorities would do to her, but she was caught and since they figured sending her back to Bulgaria would just lead to her going back to prostitution she and the other kids were granted asylum.
    Pete was in an out of foster homes for about year and never stayed long. She was trouble for the system because she'd run away a lot and was hard to keep track of. She would also steal from her foster families to get cigarettes. No one ever caught her, just suspected her.
    She moved in with a family in Mississippi for about a 1 month before getting kicked out after she was suspected of stealing money from the family. She was never technically caught stealing and all evidence was circumstantial so she couldn't be put in Juvie.
    The system was fed up with finding a family for the troublesome girl that wouldn't attach to anyone so they took Pete to the School of Life. She has been at the school for a bout 6 months.


    Extra:
    Pete has been trying to catch up to her grade since she was 10, but struggles in school because she hates sitting still and being talked at, she has a poor memory, she doesn't focus well, and she just isn't the brightest child o begin with.

    She speaks Bulgarian and English and understands a of some of the other languages spoken in Bulgaria(though not much).

    Pete will often bite her hands or run her hands through her hair when she gets really anxious.

    She loves coffee.

    Pete is pretty good at hands-on learning like mechanics and wood shop.

    Pete currently gets her cigarettes on Sunday nights at the group by the river.

    She wants to stop smoking but is afraid of going to jail if she asks for help and not being able to cope with her issues if she can't smoke.

    Pete has blue Stitch stuffed animal in her backpack. She keeps it hidden, but will hug it night sometimes to help her sleep.

    She wants to work mechanics, but has never been able to sign up in time.

    ~Character~

    Personality:
    Gruff- Dai expects people to be tough. He doesn't work with wimpy or lazy people very well because he can seem quite rough on people he thinks are not carrying their own weight. Dai doesn't coddle at all and believes that every person needs to work and help themselves. He thinks children should be given as much liberty to make mistakes as possible and will let people fail so they can learn from their own mistakes. While he understands people need help Dai wants kids to push themselves even if they struggle. He is always willing to help if they ask, but he will not do the work for you.

    Calm/Patient- Dai tends to be very calm. Even when dealing with frustrating or difficult students he can keep his cool. If he sees you're really putting effort in and trying he will not give up on you. He is willing to get down and dirty and help kids on an individual basis no matter who the kid is. Even when he gets frustrated or thinks a kid is lazy Dai won't lose his temper. However if he does lose patience with you or thinks your lazy he will become tougher on you. Dai doesn't give up easily on people, but if they test his patience people he is known to get very tough on kids who consistently display laziness in his workshop.

    Caring- Despite his rough and tough style of love Dai is a very caring person. He does not enjoy seeing people struggle or hurt and sees all 'his kids' so to speak as his little siblings. He loves them deeply and wants them to succeed. He works hard to teach the kids about how to deal with life and tries to be a role model for the. Dai's heart aches for the kids in his care because he knows most of them have come from harsh background and while he's tough on them he also will always try to be there for them when they need him.

    Guarded- Dai is not very talkative about his own past. He is very guarded about showing when he's in pain and showing his fears. He doesn't like to show his weaknesses too much and struggles because he wants to be a role model, but he also doesn't want to open up to people. He has been to war and feels like he can't share what he saw there because no one will understand.
    Dai's guarded aspect is also slightly prideful and he doesn't want to be weak in the eyes of others.
    He also doesn't want to be mis-judged which is why he won't share that he has PTSD with his co-workers or the kids because he thinks they'll be afraid of him if he does due to the stereotypes that surround the diagnosis.


    Likes: Being outdoors, creating things with his hands, helping kids,

    Dislikes: Fireworks, pain meds, alcohol, bullies, people who get into fights too easily

    Favorite Color: Natural greens

    Favorite Animal: Bearded Dragon. (And pretty much any lizard, whiptail, gecko, etc...)


    History:

    Dai was born to a teen mom in Dallas, TX. His mother left him at the hospital adn fled the state, this was before Safe Haven laws were enacted so if she was caught she would've been in a lot of trouble for child abandonment.
    Dai was placed into the foster system where he bounced from home to home until he was fostered at the age of 9 and the adopted a year later by the Moses family. The Moses family were unable to have kids biologically so they adopted 8 children. The family owned a small woodworking business in Galvaston, TX where they made furniture mostly and other small things.
    Dai was trouble when he was first fostered by the Moses. He would fight with his parents and siblings and tended to be very angry. He had spent his entire life up until that point worried about families not liking him and at 9 he just quit caring and became a very angry child.
    The Moses family however did not give up on him like the other families had and worked hard him. They were strict, but loving and allowed their kids freedom as long as they behaved properly. This is where Dai got most of his philosophy on how to deal with kids.
    Dai was homeschool because his parents thought it was a better environment for him and his siblings. He loved it because he didn't have to listen to a teacher talk for 8 hours a day while sitting in a seat and it meant he got to help his dad with the family business from a young age. He graduated when he was 17 and convinced his parents to allow him to enlist in the Army. Odai had volunteered as an EMT as a teenager and became a medic in the Army.
    When Dai was 21 he was on his second deployment. While on deployment his humvee was hit by an IED and blew up. Dai was severely injured an spent about a year and half recovering and having intensive therapy in hospital.
    While he was still working on recovering his parents were struck and killed by a drunk driver. Dai was 22 at the time and after that he swore off alcohol because he never wanted to be responsible for hurting anyone due to intoxication.
    When he was 23 Dai moved to Mississippi in an attempt to restart his life after the military. He started out as just a Workshop supervisor teacher. He soon took on the duties of a general supervisor and now practically lives at the school.

    Extra:

    He really wants a pet bearded dragon at the school, but is worried the workshop will be too loud for it.

    Dai does not know about the Sunday night trade sessions.

    Stubborn- Ruben is a very stubborn boy. He doesn't like to be told what to do or to ask for help. Ruben likes to do things his way and doesn't trust people enough to get their opinions a lot of the time. He doesn't believe others have his best interest in mind so he will charge along with his own plan. He also doesn't like to admit he can't do something or doesn't know something so he won't ask for help. This helped him when he was in the poor school in his district because nobody really cared to help with his dyslexia, Ruben refused to let that stop him and stubbornly forced himself to learn to deal with his dyslexia. It also has helped with his diabetes though it has hurt there too because he doesn't like to listen to others or get advice and prefers to learn on his own.

    Angry- Ruben has some deep anger issues. He helpless a lot because he can't help his siblings and feels like the world is against him. His lack of trust when it comes to anyone but his family also leads him to have outbursts if he feels someone is threatening him or mocking him. At the school Ruben tends to feel lost and alone because he hasn't found anyone to relate to and he misses his siblings badly this is one of the causes of his anger because he doesn't know how to deal with his loneliness.

    Tough- Ruben is very tough. He sometimes judges people harshly if he thinks their being wimpy because of how he grew up. His toughness and stubborness lead to him being very independent. Ruben feels like everyone should learn to suck it up because he had to learn to suck it up very young.

    Rebellious/Unruly- Ruben is very independent and unruly. He is a free spirit, but not in the hippie kind of way. He enjoys being on his own and not relying on others. He likes to live by his own rules and not allow others to dictate his movements.

    Loyal- Ruben is very loyal to his family. He doesn't trust or like many people, but he has a deep-seeded loyalty for his family. He will do whatever it takes to help his family, which can get dangerous for him. He loves his family deeply and cares about them a lot.

    History: Ruben was born in the backwoods of the Appalachia. He was the fourth oldest of 9 children. His father was in and out of Ruben's life and left for good when the boy was 6. Ruben's mother was always either working or looking for a job which left the older siblings to raise the younger siblings.
    Right after Ruben's father left Ruben became very sick and was diagnosed with diabetes. This put even more pressure on his mother to work and have enough money for her son's medication and medical equipment and made it so the kids saw her even less.
    Growing up Ruben was a tough kid. He was never afraid to get into a fight and was rather reckless. He loved to take risks and never really showed he cared what anyone thought about him.
    The family, like a lot of families in the area, didn't have running water, electricity, or heating and cooling systems. They lived in a small trailer and Ruben and his siblings had to buy ice to keep his insulin cool because they couldn't afford electricity bills.
    Ruben and his brothers would chop wood to keep the house warm in and winter and started working odd jobs at a young age to earn even a little bit of money to help their mom. Ruben start working a paper route at the age of 10 and would 'babysit' his younger siblings while the older siblings tried to find work.
    When Ruben was 13 his mother died in a freak accident at her job. Ruben and his siblings were placed into the foster care siblings and were split up even though they weren't supposed too.
    Ruben became very angry after this. He was mad at the world for taking his siblings and mother, he was mad no one seemed to care about where he came from, and he was furious he was unable to contact his siblings because he didn't get to know where they were.
    CPS had a hard time placing Ruben because he would run away a lot and fought a lot. When he was 14 he found out where his younger siblings were housed and was caught trying to break in to see them. At this point CPS had had enough of tracking this troublesome kid down and his social worker told him he could either go to juvie for breaking and entering or he could go to a special school. Ruben chose the school because he thought it would be easier to get out of. His social worker pulled some strings and sent him to the School of Life.
    Ruben still hopes to leave the school and live with his siblings again.

    Extra:

    He always carries his 'diabetes bag' with him. It's a small dirty beige canvas messenger bag that he keeps insulin, snacks, needles, a sharps box, alcohol pads, and whatever else he needs.

    Ruben does not have an insulin pump or dexcom because CPS can't afford to get him them.

    Ruben loves to be outdoors and to be barefoot.

    He enjoys listening to people read especially horror and adventure books. Ruben wishes he was able to afford a device to listen to audio books.

    Ruben is currently saving his money for when he leaves school whether he leaves at 18 and tries to get his siblings back or if he leaves before then so he can help his siblings.

    Ruben knows about the Sunday night trade sessions because one of his roommates told him about them, but he doesn't go to them.

    ~Character~
    Personality:
    Honest- Seth finds no reason to hide anything about himself or to lie how he feels about others. He is an open book and if someone asks him a question he will answer it truthfully. It is easier to say what one already knows or feels than to think up a lie. Like everything there are exceptions, but these are rare.
    Domineering- He likes to be in charge and for people to follow his rules. If people don't, he is not above getting physical and forcing them to obey.
    Boyish- He can have a boyish charm, especially around girls. Seth may be rough around the edges, but he can have a fun and childish side if given the chance.
    Vain- This one is pretty self explanatory. He likes his looks..a lot. He knows he looks good, and he knows you know he looks good.

    Likes: His looks, old couches, the occasional fist fight, being in charge, cats
    Dislikes: People who don't fight fair, anyone who is mean to old ladies or young children, who he is inside
    Hobbies: Keeping in shape. Other than that he is lazy.
    Talents: Natural born leader, pick-pocketing (or thieving in general), fighting
    Weaknesses: Bossy, moody, lazy, not the brightest cat in the box, doesn't like to use weapons (although he will if there is no other choice)
    Fears: Seeing his family again, never being forgiven, that he is unable to change
    Favorite Food: Saltine crackers
    Favorite Color: Dark blue like his eyes
    Favorite Animal: Mountain Lion

    History:
    Seth was born into a fairly normal family. Both parents were loving, had steady jobs, didn't do drug or drink alcohol. It was all pretty normal. The only thing that seemed to go wrong was them having a child that seemed to have come from hell. Seth was fine at first, but as he got older he became a demon child. If he did not get his way he would do anything in his power to force it to be his way. He would scream, hit, break stuff, whatever he could think of. He was just as bad around other kids and would even bully the bullies.
    The age of ten was the first time he ran away. He did not make it far, but he learned from his mistakes, and when he ran away again a year later he made it farther, living on the streets for two weeks before he was found again. Now he understood he could not stay in the same town, so when he turned twelve he tried again, and this time was fairly successful. Thanks to the help of someone in the next town, he managed to not get caught for three years. He had enjoyed his life of street crime. There had been no one to tell him what to do, he became skilled at thievery, and he had started learning about girls.
    After those three years, his parents sent him to the School of Life, and he has been here for two years.
    Extra:
    Does know about the Sunday night trades and will sometimes get alcohol.

    Natural Markings: Scars across his chest and back
    Piercings/Tattoos: None


    ~Character~
    Personality:

    Gentle- Jeremy is incapable of hurting even a fly. He cares about others in the way he wants to be cared for, and has only experienced that from his friend.
    Overly Trusting- His want to be loved and caring nature makes him trust people more than he should. He is not going to go blurt out all his secrets to someone, but he is ok trying to be friends with anyone.
    Selfless/Compassionate- He puts others before himself, even if that means he will get hurt in the process. He would rather himself be hurt than watch anyone else in pain. If someone needs help, he will be the first person there to help out.
    Strong-Willed/Strong-Minded- Even though he will not fight back, he is not beaten down easily. He knows he has to keep going, so that is what he will do.

    Likes: Flowers, feathers, friendly people, birds, hugs
    Dislikes: loud noises, people asking him too many questions, being handled roughly
    Hobbies: Reading, walking through quiet areas.
    Talents: Photography, listening, innovation/creativity
    Weaknesses: Anxious, Nonviolent
    Fears: Dying, Never knowing love, Not being able to protect his sister
    Favorite Food: Spaghetti and meatballs
    Favorite Color: Lavender
    Favorite Animal: Dove
    History: It would not be wrong to say Jeremy was born and raised in Hell. His father was abusive, and his mother left a year after his sister was born. It was unknown what was wrong with his mother, but she was mentally unstable and could not take it anymore, so she left without taking her kids since she would not have been able to care for them anyway. The beatings that his father gave his mother then turned to him. The older he got, the worse it became, but he never once thought about running away. Some days the angels were busy looking out for other people, so on those days he had to take their place and protect his sister. He endured the beatings, mainly from a belt, so his sister did not have to. He would hide her, and then when everything was done he would tell her it would all be ok, sometimes read to her.
    This went on for years, and it got worse when Jeremy turned twelve. His father learned that his son was gay and sexual abuse was added to the beatings to show his son what he could expect by being with another guy. Just like with the beatings, Jeremy endured this, but when he was fourteen it looked like his father was going to start going after his sister. He didn’t fight back, he couldn’t fight back, but he begged his father to take him instead. This weakness was the last straw, and his father didn’t want to deal with his son anymore. He told Jeremy that if he pretended to be a bad kid and went to a school he learned about that no harm would come to his sister. Jeremy agreed.
    He has been at the school for only about a month, and every day he tells himself why he is here, and that gives him the strength to continue with this lie. Once he turns eighteen, he plans to get his sister and take her far away so she will be safe.

    Extra:
    He makes sure to never change in front of someone since he does not want anyone to find out about the scars that cover his body, but if anyone sees them and asks, he will say he did it to himself.

    Does not know about the Sunday night trades.

    He calls his friend, Louis, once a week to ask about his sister. Louis knows that Jeremy's father is abusive, but does not know the extent of the abuse.

    He is a new character, so anything about him is subject to change as I learn more about him.

    ⠀⠀⠀Rather prone to sudden alterations to his emotions, Matthew unintentionally appears amiable at first, and later; bitter.

    Family: Ren Yasu (Mother), Ren Kitamura (Father), Ren Katsuro (elder brother)

    Hair Description: Black, naturally middle-parted, going slightly past her chin, considered straight although it gets more wavy when wet

    Skin Tone: Porcelain (extremely pale )

    Weight: 118 lbs.

    Body Build: Small frame, triangle (figure), slim (still strong with some obvious muscle)

    Natural Markings: Large freckle on left bicep, freckle on right ankle, cigarette burn on the right side of her neck (closer to her collar bone)

    Piercings/Tattoos: Besides her ear piercings (standard lobe, upper lobe, orbital, industrial, and helix), all of her piercings are fake (septum ring, shark bites, snake bites-- usually worn at different times, but occasionally worn together). Tora buys fake tattoos in town, and brought a lot of them with her in her suitcase.

    Personality:
    Independent- Tora prefers doing things alone. She is quite stubborn when it comes to receiving help, but she does work better alone anyways. If she asks you for help, she definitely needs it.
    Assertive- She isn't afraid to tell anyone anything. Tora also has a history of standing up to authority figures and being very straightforward.
    Audacious- Tora usually isn't afraid to do anything. She is quite daring and is considered a daredevil or risk taker by most people who actually get to know her.
    Impulsive- It is rare for Tora to think of consequences or possible outcomes before doing anything. She can make up her mind in the blink of an eye.
    Persuasive- Tora is very talented when it comes to getting people to do what she wants. She comes up with "good" reasons quite quickly, and the way she speaks when she's trying to persuade someone to do something makes her sound very convincing.


    ~Her personality combined with her surprising strength and ferocity is why other students sometimes refer to her as "The Tiger". (Tora also happens to mean "tiger") *Think of Aisaka Taiga from "Toradora!"*~

    Likes: Dark colors, thunder storms, exotic animals, adventuring, using the word "rad"

    Dislikes: Sitting around, being restricted/told what to do, overly pessimistic people, not being replied to after asking a question

    Hobbies: Reading, writing (poetry, short stories, novels), sculpting, painting, sewing, drawing, studying current events

    Talents: Sewing, sculpting, painting, drawing, writing, speaking Japanese and Chinese fluently

    Weaknesses: Bossy, stubborn, easily bored

    Fears: Never being important, losing the things/people that she loves

    Favorite Color: Deep plum

    Favorite Animal(s): A tie between tigers and cheirogaleidae

    History:
    Tora lived in Naraha, Japan, until she was ten years old. Her family moved to Kyoto, Japan, due to her father's job. Her life was pretty normal. Her brother teased her like any older brother would, she hung out with her friends, and did good in school. The lowest grade Tora got before moving to America was a B, and she went to cram school as well. She did occasionally disrespect teachers and other forms of authority in hopes of being thought of as "cool", which earned her quite a few detentions.


    At the end of her eighth grade school year, Tora and her family moved to Santa Barbara, California. Although Tora had known some English prior to moving, she still struggled. Her grades dropped, she became more frustrated and developed anxiety, and began acting out much more. She started fights, bullied other students, and would sometimes ignore everyone around her completely. Because of all this, Tora's parents sent her to School of Life.

    Extra: Tora is not completely out of the closet- only her brother and a few of her very close friends from Santa Barbara know.
    She does not know about what happens on Sunday nights.

    Personality:
    Sensitive- Marina is quick to notice even the slightest changes in someone's behavior. She has a delicate appreciation for other's feelings and will always let you pour your heart out to her or cry on her shoulder.
    Trustworthy- She is quite honest with everyone and herself. Marina also knows the importance of being reliable. She is unpersuadable (at least she believes) when it comes to spilling secrets. The girl can't bring herself to do it, most of the time.
    Enigmatic- Marina is definitely a bit difficult to understand at first, and she likes it that way. Most would describe her as being odd, secretive, or kooky as well. She likes speaking in metaphors sometimes to throw people off, too.
    Charismatic- Definitely, Marina is quite a charming young lady. Her wit, passion, sensitivity, and mysteriousness all add up to her strange allure.
    Obsessive- Marina sometimes becomes so infatuated and intrigued by things (and people) that she becomes obsessed. She gets so preoccupied by her infatuation that she will begin to procrastinate and cancel any of her plans, and has no problem with skipping tons of classes just to feed her current obsession.
    Jealous- It is easy for Marina to become envious of other people. She will go as far as to wish pain upon them, and if her wishes aren't granted she may set something up herself.


    Likes: Rainy (or generally cloudy) days, sunsets/sunrises, TV romance, the moon, mythology, old movies, Tim Burton movies, astrology, psychology, folklore/fairytales, honest people, nature, cats

    Fears: Not being good enough for anyone, how people think about her

    Favorite Food: Shepard's pie

    Favorite Color: Mint

    Favorite Animal: Deer

    History:
    Marina's mother Charlotte was much younger than her lover Abram. They met in Australia in February of 1997. Charlotte was eighteen and Abram was twenty-nine. They met at a small diner in Townsville, which is where Charlotte had lived her whole life. Abram lived in Seattle, Washington, and was on vacation. Charlotte was a waitress, and happened to go to Abram's table to get his order. The man was probably more infatuated with her than she was with him at first, but over time their love blossomed. Shortly after finding out that she was pregnant, Abram and Charlotte got engaged. They had their wedding exactly two months before Marina Ruby was born.


    The problem was that Marina's parents were too focused on each other to properly take care of their little girl. Abram had some problems paying for his house and getting things properly fixed, so he and his family moved in with his relatives in Norilsk, Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia. Although the city was boring and somewhat bleak, and the winters were extremely harsh, Marina always looked at things positively, or at least tried. After a while, her father began to drink more and was no longer as connected to his wife. Charlotte threatened to leave him multiple times, and never did. Abram would beat Charlotte and Marina constantly, even swatting at Marina with a broken glass bottle, which is how she got the giant scar on her ribs.

    After a while, Marina began thinking of herself as being awful and thought that she had ruined her parents' relationship. The anxiety mixed with being beaten nearly 24/7 led to her panic disorder, causing panic attacks that will happen without warning and can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Marina tried to fight back against her father one night and completely failed. She decided to take her anger out on other students, beating them up at the most random times. The girl would go from humming and smiling to sobbing as she bashed someone's face in within seconds. The school recommended therapy, which her parents didn't agree with. Then, Marina and her family moved back to America, this time living in San Antonio, Texas. Her atelophobia, anxiety, panic attacks, and mood swings were still prevalent, so at the age of fifteen Marina was sent to School of Life.

    History:
    Kimona was born and raised in Kittery, Maine. She was the first child of Alesha and Dominik Floros, and six years later they had a second daughter named Cecylia. Before Cecylia was born, all the attention was given to Kimona. She was the center of her parents' world, and everyone else in her family adored her as well. But when Cecylia was born, Kimona lost her metaphorical throne and seemed to be less cherished. After all, Cecylia was the baby of the family now. Kimona felt unloved and a bit threatened because of her new sister. She would often go into the baby's room and strangle or throw the child. Kimona didn't do this as much as both of them got older, but she was still very harsh and did occasionally threaten Cecylia's life.
    The girl wasn't like this with other children, though. She was actually quite caring towards them, since she had no reason to hate them. They didn't cause her to get less attention. Most of the time, Kimona was considered responsible unless she was around her baby sister. Kimona was placed in foster care because of her actions. She was never the first pick, seeing as she was prone to violence and jealousy, but she did manage to go into seven different foster homes within two months. The longest Kimona stayed in one place was five months, but the caretakers were abusive. They claimed to be teaching the girl a lesson about respect and kindness, but they would beat her and even locked her in the attic for two weeks straight, only giving her water every other day. The police were notified and the guardians were arrested. After that, Kimona was only placed in another foster home that lasted a week, and then was sent back due to excessive amounts of tantrums, screaming, and violence. Kimona was sent to School of Live at the age of twelve due to her behavior, and there was no hope for her elsewhere.


    Extra: Kimona doesn't know what goes on on Sunday nights.

    Personality:
    Devoted- Casper is very loyal to projects and people. It is unlikely for him to lose interest in anything or lose his patience with other people. He enjoys helping.
    Imaginative- He is very creative in his every day life. Whether it has to do with how he approaches things (or people), what he says, or what he does, most moments in his life have an ingenious flare.
    Compliant/Easily Influenced- Casper is easily swayed to do anything, even if it has serious consequences. Mostly, he just wants people to like him, which is why he'll do anything they tell him to.

    History:
    Casper grew up in Austin, Texas, with his parents as an only child until he was seven. Then, his parents split and his mother got remarried the next year. Casper gained two step-siblings, Evelyn and Leonardo. While his new siblings didn't exactly like him, nothing too extreme ever happened. They would tease him, try to ignore him, and liked to set him up for failure.
    Once Casper was getting older, he started to realize that he was different from most people. He did explore his sexuality a bit, realizing he was homoflexible (at first thinking he was bi), but he was a bit afraid because of how he had seen people acting towards gays and the LGBTQ+ community in general. He did, eventually, come out at school, which got him bullied. He didn't try getting into fights, but he would be pushed into them instead and didn't have much of a choice. Not wanting to get beat up, Casper would fight back. He did fail a lot, but the cases where he won were what his parents heard about from the school. Because of this, Casper was sent to School of Life.


    Extra: He does know about Sunday nights, but will only get anything (like cigarettes or alcohol) if he is stressed.

    Please add into your extra section whether your character knows about the Sunday night trade sessions and if they do do they get anything at them.

    Also I would like y'all to tell me what date would be best for you to start this RP. (I realize summer is busy for some people with traveling and stuff and want an optimal date so no one feels left out or like they're always play catch up when posting)

    Thanks y'all!
     
  7. @Charlie Vasilyev will do, I currently have a light schedule so I am flexible for whenever everyone else can start.
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  8. ADD ON TO STUDENT INFO:

    Students are allowed to call home. However they are not allowed cell phones and the like so to call home they must use the house phone.

    After work everyday students are given a token for 10, 15, or 20 minutes of phone time. In each house there is a phone room which is a small room on the ground floor. In the room there is a desk top pay phone which likes a chunkier version of a rotary phone with a key pad. You insert you token and your time starts as soon as you dial the number you're calling. Next to the phone is an old egg timer that you can set to 10, 15, or 20 minutes if you want to keep track of how long you have left.

    The phone automatically hangs up after your time is up. If you had a 15 minute token and only talked for 10 minutes you don't get your time back and your token is still used up. Every night the Head Kid goes in, unlocks the phone and takes all the the tokens returning them to the adults house to be re-used.

    On Saturdays you have a chance to earn 2 tokens one for that night and one for Sunday night. You may use both tokens in one night, but you must ask the Head Kid before taking more than 20 minutes to ensure you are not taking up another student's phone time.

    Most houses have a rule(Depends on the head kid if it's enforced or not) that you may not hang out near the phone room even if you're waiting in line because it's rude to eavesdrop.

    I will add this to the upper description I was just giving y'all the heads up.

    (Thank you @Icystorm for reminding me that phones exist and kids should be able to call home... :-P)


    MEDICAL INFO(STUDENTS):


    If a student takes prescription medication they are in charge of taking them and are not reminded by staff. Whenever they need a refill they are taken to get one. Any and all check ups needed are done by a doctor that takes the insurance the school uses.

    The school covers most medical bills however if a student gets injured doing some stupid like attempting par-cour when they shouldn't, fighting, etc they are expected to pay a certain percentage of the bill decided upon by the head of school.

    Adult staff perform random 'pill checks' to ensure students are not abusing and selling prescription medications. While they want kids to have freedom to choose they also do not want to risk being shut down or a lawsuit because students abused prescription medications.

    ~Character~Personality:

    Creative, Coming from a dangerous environment in a city of art, Levi turned to the arts as his way to escape the ugliness of the world around him. This escape from reality would eventually encompass his daily life, it has grown to the point where he has a difficult time telling the difference. Show Levi a tree and he can show you a city with a metro, skyscrapers and skyways in a matter of moments, all within that tree. Yet the question remains is it creativity or the hallucinations...or his imagination....

    Analytical, living where you need to aware and analyze everything, one learns to pick up the smallest of details, from the change of the tone in someone's voice to the slight change in someone's stance. This however has a downside, when you are surrounded by large groups of people it gets harder to analyze each and everyone of them and that leads to a sense of insecurity and nervousness, which could induce an asthmatic panic attack. Furthermore when you focus on all the little things, you can and will often lose sight of the whole picture.


    “Spontaneous, or is it Erratic?? Both perhaps, but are they not near the same?” Outburst prone he known to say and to do things without thought of where he is or who's around. If he wants to randomly do something...he's going to do it, all it needs to do is hold his interest..

    Enigmatic; To say Levi is enigmatic is a bit of an over simplification. His subtle refusal to talk about himself in depth is the first hint of His enigmatic nature. His words often seem to hide a secondary meaning to them, hiding cryptic messages in everything from his artwork to his schoolwork. This along with his Spontaneous nature increases the difficulty of fully understanding him or his motives.


    Intuitive : Living a life where it's hard to tell what's real and what's not is a hard one. Though it's made a touch easier when one's intuition is one of the only things that help decide what's what. And so he relies on it in part to help him make decisions on everything. If anything feels off about something he is the first to say so, and given that his intuition has yet to fail him( according to himself and a few friends.)


    Independent to a point: being the youngest of five boys you learn to hold your own, even more when your brothers are involved in criminal activity. Yet this independence did not come naturally to Levi, being terrified of being alone and of people when he was younger. Levi would often tag right behind his brothers using them as his crutch. However they were Quick to push Levi out of his comfort zone, but they did not throw him to the wolves right away so to say they taught him to fend for himself if he were to get into a fight. this boost in confidence soon moved his fear of people and being alone to a fear of being alone with strangers. This has continued to be a challenge after coming to The school of Life even with his brother Kolima who continues to push Levi to move past his fears in a place filled with strangers.


    Quick, open and tactical mind. Having seen so many things and living in the midst of a crime syndicate Levi has developed a quick wit that is open to suggestions as long as it makes scence to Levi. His mind has also learned to make plans for just about any type of situation he could get into, now if only he could remember what he had planned,..

    Likes: Mysteries, Tattoos, cooking, art, boys, music, drawing on himself and others.. Occult studies, cologne and some perfumes..flowers. Adventures..and.adventurous people. Food as in all kinds of food. Trying new things.


    Dislikes: Bright lights, most perfumes (90%), loud and nosey people, when people bath in cologne and perfume. Arrogance, incompetence, people with a bunch of inhibitions. American country music… whiny or snobbish people. Rudeness, conflict


    Hobbies: Drawing, researching ideas for new tattoos. Cooking( Uses as a destresser and a distraction from writers/creative blocks) writing. Tattooing himself. Adventuring.


    Talents: Drawing, cooking, forgetting things. Tattoo artistry. Acting( uses it to act like he cares and to convey his current emotional state as well as to hide when he is having a hallucinogenic episode.) Getting lost, losing things.

    Weaknesses: Beyond forgetful….has forgotten what he was talking about while talking about it. Has repeated people thinking he's responding to them.
    Overly analytical, apathetic when it comes to things he is uninterested in and even some things he is interested in.. Has no filter. Romantically challenged to put it nicely. Has a hard time conforming to other people's rules and will blatantly refuse to when he feels it is wrong.

    Fears: burning alive, being alone with people he doesn't know. Deadlines( due to him forgetting about them) failure. The Frenchman in the highwayman's coat.(an hallucination that he sees around the school, mostly on the trails sometimes at night. Is half the reason he refuses to go to the Sunday spot by himself.) Doctors, people finding out about his ailments and picking on him or abandoning him… abandonment. Getting lost alone

    Favorite Food: Food Is his favourite. Curry and Papanasi...also sweets. And meats.. Lamb anything.
    Favorite Color: Black. Grey, white
    .Favorite Animal: Fox, ferrets, humans

    History: Born to a Romanian Mobster by the name of Vladimir IV and the daughter of a Russian crime Lord named Adelina. Levi and his brothers were given little to no choice, but to fall into line and join in the family business. At age 8 Levi watched his first execution, as well as began exhibiting signs of Antisocial behaviour. It was at age 10 Levi began smoking and his symptoms became more apparent, he also received his first tattoo. The mandala on his hand. By age 12 Levi became involved in the drug trade, age 13 Levi was arrested for drug trafficking but was released without charges due to his family paying off the A few months later his Father received word that a rival gang from Serbia had began to establish itself in the city of Bucharest, this would result in a turf war between them and the Serbians. It was around this time that his older brother Kolima came home from reform school in America to resume his apprenticeship with their Uncle Satja, and suggested Levi go with him when he returned to school to separate Levi from the ensuing violence of their families gang war with the Serbians.
    Their father disagreed with the idea at first and it wasn't till the middle of summer break, when the violence with the Serbians resulted in their uncle Satja being hospitalized after he was attacked in his shop, that their mother a fan of the idea of her sons studying abroad demanded that Levi go with Kolima when he went back to school in America. Their father realising that if he didn't agree to the idea their mother would do it without his knowing and made arrangments for Levi to be enrolled into the School of Life. The same school their Uncle Satja had told them to send Kolima too.
    That next school year Levi arrived at the School of Life and for the rest of the year Levi would become Kolima’s practice canvas. During this year Kolima taught Levi how to tattoo without a tattoo gun. Afterwards Levi began tattooing himself and sometimes others. Returning home Levi would become an apprentices in the art of tattooing and spent the summer break learning how to tattoo with a tattoo gun. At the end of the summer break, Their uncle Satja sat down with Levi and Kolima and explained that he did not want the same life for Levi or Kolima that their brothers had, he gave Kolima a job at his shop and have Levi a tattoo gun to take with him when Levi returned to the School of Life to begin his Sophomore year.


    Extra: Knows about Sunday,does tattoos (was Kolima's thing when he was in school, took over when he left.) sells artwork, trades He gets ink and tattoo supplies, alcohol and cigarettes(can never finish one) Is said to trade tattoo time for phone time.​
