REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Scarlett Swift
Role: Student
Appearance:
ImageImageImage

Height and Weight: 5'4" and 105 pounds.
Short-bio:
Scarlett grew up in a rather poor suburb of Boston, Massachusetts, in a crappy neighborhood with most of her family living within a 10 mile radius because none of them wanted to, nor could afford to move particularly far away. And it did work for them to sort of keep in contact around the neighborhood fairly easily. She would continue to live in this neighborhood for her entire life up until basically now, growing up in a poor family throughout this. She was used to going nights without a meal because her family couldn't afford it. Some of it was their own poor life decisions leading to them being stuck in poverty, but others were just the cycle of things. The cycle of the family, or poverty leading to things that made them more in poverty, because they did stuff to cope with said poverty. Either way, she did not live in the most optimal of conditions, and her school wasn't really much better, either. It was a pretty run down school in a run down neighborhood. And because of this, it also wasn't the best for teaching you a good education, as their standards were rather low, and while she wasn't terrible at it, she never really did super good in school throughout the years.

Her mother was a stay-at-home mom, but she didn't really do much to actually parent, including when she was younger. Oftentimes she would wander off and do her own thing without at all paying attention to the fact her child was up to no good, which led to some interesting encounters for Scarlett. Basically her getting into things she shouldn't have when she was younger, and getting in trouble for it, despite the fact her parents were partly to blame for not paying attention. Her mother had also gotten a gambling addiction. She did a bit of work on the computer, but almost always she gambled her earning's away, with no payoff. She was also a rather heavy smoker, who most likely was not entirely loyal to her husband. She seemed more neglectful than truly a bad mother, though. Sometimes she actuall tried, but mostly, she was absent.

Her father was a whole different bag of joy. He was the type to "instill the fear of God into you", or what have you, and was very rough and tough on her. She always had issues in school, for reason's that nobody had bothered to figure out and explain, so he would get on her case a lot for doing poorly in school. Part of the problem was the poor education, but it was also because she had a learning disability. But her parents didn't know that, nor bother to realize it may be something else, and she would get in trouble...which did nothing for the cycle of things, because getting in trouble just made her get anxiety about it, which did not help her do better. As far as he was concerned, he was an alcoholic at times, so there were nights where her mom was doing nothing and her dad had spent too much of his money on alcohol and was passed out, so she would have to take care of the shit for the night. There were a few times where he was actually abusive with her as well, but bad or not, these were rare occasions. It seemed to be mostly as the occasional punishment he would hit her, mostly when she did something especially bad, whatever that meant. So he was also a big part of the problem, also being a problem with their money situation as well.

Her brother, and only sibling, to top it all off, was also a mess of his own. Sometimes she felt like the only normal one in her messed up family. He had a job and all that, but he was a bit of a druggie (Thanks to the extended family's less great elements), and seemed to fuck up a lot at...well, lifing. He wasn't really the same level as their parents, but she was never big on her brother because he couldn't get his shit together and, again, basically just kept fucking up at everything.

Now, her extended family was a mixture of all sorts of crazy shit. Some of her older cousins had apparently gotten into the drug dealing trade, her grandma was basically on her death bed because she smoked so much, one of her said cousins had died of an overdose at one point, the shit all of her family got themselves into brought all sorts of sketchy shit into their areas, and of course, the one necessity in a family, that creepy and/or/weird old uncle who you are pretty sure is attracted to you based off of some of the extremely uncomfortable shit they say to you, despite the fact you're family and also a minor. Yup, she has one of those, too, and she hated when he was around (Which was too much). She also had a raving lunatic of a grandpa who believed the craziest of conservative conspiracy theories. And that was just some of the family. These various family members also had their own substance abuse issues, or mental issues or whatever. Basically her entire family were all some form of fucked up, and also in poverty. There were maybe a couple of exceptions here and there that managed to get out of the messy cycle, but nobody else really knew them because they left and never turned back.

And, as mentioned, the things her family got involved with brought all sorts over. Potentially murderers, possibly rapists as far as she knew, other forms of criminals, and so on. Any time something like that was going on, she tended to stay away. Not to mention her neighborhood was always kind of off anyway. And one of her experiences was no exception. She had been minding her own business, when some lunatic with a knife started threatening her and trying to rob her. Obviously, she made it out alive, but she ended up using her arm to shield herself from a slash attack at her face, and well, it hit her arm instead and slit her wrist, which wasn't exactly great. They seemed to be someone who immediately after this realized in horror what they had done, after she stumbled back clutching her wrist, and ran away, though she was pretty sure that she could have defended herself anyway, despite the fact she was bleeding everywhere. While this wasn't pretty, she did end up recovering in the end, though with quite a lot of blood loss because of the area she got hit.

Despite her families attitude of not seeming to care all too much, her father did end up hitting a point where he wanted to do whatever he could to get his daughter (Not his son, because he was off doing his own thing) the best education he could get, despite their poor situation. He also seemed to want to get his daughter out of this whole situation, to see if she could make something of her life compared to what they were all doing. So, he did. He found a way to get enough money for her to go off to a nearby state, and to a private school, to her surprise. She had attempted to ask her dad how exactly he got the money for such a thing, but he was sort of dodgy about it, and she had decided to not ask any further. She accepted willingly, though, as she wanted to get the hell out of here to attempt to make something of her own.

And now, here she was, at the academy, attempting to do what she could with her new chance at life.


ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: February 26th, 2003
Hometown: Some poor Boston suburb, Massachusetts, United States
Personality: Scarlett was a bit of a varied sort. She never particularly came off as friendly to people, but she wasn't the most rude, either. Basically she said stuff a lot that may sound a bit harsh, but wasn't meant as anything bad. Seems to be a little insensitive about topics to people a lot, not really choosing her words carefully when she should. Can get a little angry over small things sometimes, or a little snippy at people. Tries to pretend otherwise, but seems to have an addictive personality, just like the rest of her family appears to, but does all she can to fight that and not fall down the same trap as the rest of them. Is able to adapt well to changing circumstances, likely due to her odd upbringing. Basically can adapt on a dime, though some things are harder than others. A bit adventurous. Isn't particularly the best with putting things into words a lot, and seems to get words mixed up quite often, or struggles to find the words she's thnking of. Not exactly articulate at that. Appears a little reckless. A bit of the freethinker type. Likely loyal as hell to the right people. Also gets protective of the right people. Can also be a bit sarcastic at times in response to people, or just overall making kind of dumb comments. Seems to have a bit of an apathetic attitude due to where she came from. Bit compulsive. Has a few rather strange quirks about her as well, which that is better shown than explained.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Likes: Pizza, ramen, oddly a lot of cheap foods, Patriots (Her family always watched football), Tom Brady, PewDiePie, trashy drama TV shows, memes, boys, cats, etc
Dislikes: Cops, politicians, most of her family, drug dealers, massive druggies, massive drunks, heavy smokers, neglectful people, rich people, politics in general, etc.
Skills: 1. Has a bit of "Street smarts", if that can really count.
2. A bit of self-defense training.
3. Seems to, in some circumstances, be able to detect those who are the more sketchy types, due to the environment she grew up.
4. Rather observant of everything.
Disorders/Handicaps: Undiagnosed dyslexia and attention deficit disorder, but mostly the former.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: Fear of being isolated away from people and the world, almost seemingly a fear of happiness in her life, because it's something abnormal, claustrophobic, fear of making big decisions, mostly because she's afraid they'll end in shambles, fear of aging to be old, fear of the responsibility of working, slight fear of sexual love or abuse, or sexual intercourse, but that's more because of the climate she grew up in being a bit of an uncomfortable one surrounded by strange people. Fear of committment, like marriage, relationships in general, etc, fear of public speaking. It's not that she's socially awkward, she just doesn't like public speaking. Fear of returning to her own home, because it's a bit of a shitty situation. Fear of falling in love, fear of dying,
Wishes: To get her life into gear, even if her family can't get theirs in check. Will any of this happen? Who the hell knows. The cycle of things and all that.
Goals: To make something of her life outside of the shitty neighborhood that she had come from. What that entailed, she had no idea, but getting out of the rut her entire extended family got themselves into was her big longtime goal.
Distinguishing Marks: Basically always wears earrings, and typically multiple ones, from having her ears pierced. Has a scar on her wrist from a time that she was attacked.
Voice: Del from Wayne, though I'm pretty sure it's potentially a bastardized Boston accent so maybe make it a bit more accurate.
Other: Snippet of Music Taste: Twenty One Pilots, The Neighborhood, OneRepublic, Cut Copy, Modest Mouse, Toro Y Moi

Oh, and Potato's in dat Salad.

If you wouldn't mind expanding this some, would you mind including some more in his bio? Things like... what was his life like? Is he from an ordinary middle-class family? Is he a returning student to Milford-Gaudier, or is he there for the first-time?

I just want to have a better idea of what to expect out of the character. I hope those examples aren't too much of a burden. For what it's worth, you could just respond to them as opposed to editing your app.

Ok then,

New Bio: He was born into an upper middle family, this family however had familial values and lived below their possible living standard (lived like middle class citizens) his father was a physicist and his mother was a college history teacher. He grew up with values and learned about politics at a young age. As he grew up he discovered his first love, art. He started to develop a passion for art and started to draw at the age of 7. But as all good things do, they must have an end, The Current governor at the time was going to destroy the school system. So his parents moved to NYC where his father got a job opportunity that was much better than his last. He started school there in the 5th grade and thus discovered his passions along the way. He is now a junior at Milford-Guadier

(There being NYC, he went into Milford as a freshman)

Name: Lawrence "L" Li
Role: Student
Appearance: average build, dark brown hair and eyes, usually dresses in simple styles
Height and Weight:5'8, 152
Short-bio: Lawrence was born in Los Angeles to new immigrants Jill and Dan Li, who had met while studying at UC Berkley. The family had started a small electronics manufacturing firm in Guangzhou in the late 1990s economic boom, and had decided to move back to the US to expand the business. However, following some family disputes and a divorce, Lawrence alternated living with his father in LA and his mother in Vancouver. Though his childhood was never lacking, he still found himself overshadowed by his older half brother, who seemed like the model child with a 4.0 GPA, became student president and headed several school clubs, and graduated from the Harvard Business School. Following the economic recession of 09, his brother moved back to Guangzhou, where he started a consulting firm. Lawrence spent two years living with his brother in China, to "get a sense of his home country", as his mother said. For the past three years, Lawrence has been living with his father, who had moved to Seattle and began a real estate firm to capitalize on the growing housing market. For his last two years of highschool, his parents approved of him moving away to a boarding school.

He can seem aloof to strangers, and it takes him a while to open up, but once he does, most will find him loyal, honest, and terrible at jokes. He is and has always been an independent person, though that doesn't necessarily mean that he doesn't enjoy company.
Sexual Orientation: Cis Hetero
Likes: enjoys art and music, generally likes solitary activities (walks, exploring/ traveling, wrenching in the garage and range)
Dislikes: large crowds, competition/ comparison to others, being controlled, people overly political/religions

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Madison Edwards
Role: Student
Appearance:
Image

Height and Weight: 5'5, 125 lbs.
Short-bio: From New York City, Madison is the daughter of a high-end fashion designer, who also frequently dabbles in art, and a recently-appointed CFO of a formerly lower-end Forbes 500 corporation, recently slipping out of the list following the 2007 Great Recession, based out of the city. Being the oldest child has, particularly, placed extensive pressure on Madison to excel in, nearly, everything she does in life. Yet, in spite of the expectations, Madison has grown up knowing nothing but a life of opulence and luxury, and with her upbringing has been provided with the strongest of tastes in fine-living - even if Madison has always felt a great disconnect with her parents, a general stoic stand-off-ishness that has contributed to her behavior in seeking validation, whether in the form of her parents or in the countless private schools they have enrolled her in throughout the younger, grammar, years of her life.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: November 12th
Hometown: New York City (Staten Island), New York
Personality: Madison has always been one to flaunt her wealth, donning the latest in expensive fashion attire - courtesy of the wealth her parents have had at their disposal, and has been known to be quite the frequent snob, and act very arrogantly appropriately. Yet, simultaneously, Madison works up quite the charm for the boys she has faked countless interests in, and for teachers to sympathize for her when she struggles to make a passing grade. Madison has struggled to find herself, or to find happiness, and is deeply insecure between her own struggles and that of an increasingly dysfunctional family life back home. Although she has displayed a tenacity, and determination, to fight for what she wants - Madison is beginning to struggle with finding out, exactly, it is she does want in her life.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual.
Likes: Artistry, Game of Thrones, guys, photography, fashion, TBD.
Dislikes: Politics, thrift-shopping, TBD.
Skills: TBD.
Disorders/Handicaps: Madison appears to be the classic dual-case of Histrionic Personality Disorder and, bit less severely, Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: TBD.
Distinguishing Marks: None.
Voice: Dianna Argon.
Other: Drives a sleek grey 2018 Acura MDX. Co-captain of the cheering squad, and plays on the volleyball team. Not the biggest fan of potato salads.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Karena Svendsen
Role: Student
Appearance:
Image

Height and Weight: 5'7" and 136 pounds.
Short-bio: Karena was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, originally only speaking Danish until her parents, and herself, decided to learn English to understand people in a large chunk of the world, since it was one of the most prominently spoken second langauges, and 3rd most spoken in general. It didn't take her long to learn it, in fact. She may have even learned some as a child, but mostly she spoke in her native language as a child. But she still learned English very young, just most of the time didn't have a reason to speak it, as she was in Denmark, so it only made sense to mostly speak her native language.

This was of course until she decided to go and be a foreign exchange student in America, specifically in New Yorkcx. This is where her English speaking would be much more prominent, and likely her accent would fade more as time went on. Though her accent wasn't so heavy she wasn't very understandable. She could be understood fairly well. But her accent was definitely there. Her main reasoning for it seemed to be for the adventure of traveling to a foreign country, and experiencing a different culture and all that from her own. Her parents accepted, even though it was also sad for her to go so far away. They also didn't entirely expect much out of the American school system, but this school had been at least highly praised. Her parents still had her younger brother to take care of back home, though, who was 10. Which the brother seemed to be a later decision to have a 2nd child instead of just having her. Now, she had gone on a foreign adventure. So now it was just the 3 of them, while their daughter tried to make something of her life in America.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: March 23rd, 2003
Hometown: Copenhagen, Denmark
Personality: Comes off as fairly normal on the surface, but she fits pretty closely with the saying that there is "More than meets the eye" to someone. You might make your preconceived opinions of someone based off of a brief interaction, but that wouldn't be enough to truly figure her out. Seems generally friendly and nice on the surface, based off of her upbeat and cheery personality. That's not to say that she isn't, but below the surface, there is more to her than that. Would likely do some more questionable things than you would imagine from someone like her. Hence her being full of surprises, really. Because she comes off as normal, but really isn't. Seems to be a bit adventurous, considering the fact that she came all the way from Denmark for a new experience, so seems interested in just aimlessly wandering. Will become sexually experimental, more so than you might imagine if you for some reason thought about that, with your assumptions based off of her normalcy. With the way she acts behind the scenes, you would think she might be a slacker who is a failure at school as well, but she's actually a fairly good student. Can be surprisingly lewd at times. Rebellious in certain circumstances.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual. Probably a 1.5 on the Kinsey Scale.
Likes: Polymorous relationships, soon-to-be sexual encounters, sadists, masochists, breaking things, adventure, wandering aimlessly, getting up to know good, etc.
Dislikes: Children, babies (Especially crying ones), toddlers, hospitals, clinics, doctors, dentists, medications, people taking things too seriously, etc.
Skills: Bilingual. Can speak fluent English (with a Danish accent), and speaks Danish, the latter being her native language. She is obviously better at Danish and is more understandable in her own language if you know it, but she is also fairly good in English and is usually fairly understandable despite her accent. Seems to be a decently skilled student in general, getting on average B to A's, without being exceptionally positive in anything specific, like beyond A's where merely getting A's is something easily achievable.
Disorders/Handicaps: Seems to have an addictive personality, but that's about it in regard to this kind of stuff. At least the most noticeable.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: A fear of the water, especially being in deep oceans. Small waterways not so much. Likely a fear of making big decisions and whatnot, because she's not really one with big set goals. Slight fear of working, because that basically makes her feel like her life is becoming too serious. Fear of making a true long term committment to someone, as that's not how she feels like approaching a relationship. Fear of hospitals or dentists, but basically because she hates those places. Fear of falling in love, because again, that's not how she approaches relationships, so falling for someone would freak her out. Fear of having to take some medication for something. Basically a fear of anything to do with medical stuff. Also pregnancy.
Wishes: To be in a sort of "relationship" where everyone's very open with each other, and to have a friend she can do crazy shit with.
Goals: Very little she has planned long term. To experience America in its fullest, really, and make it through school in mostly one piece.
Distinguishing Marks: Nothing particularly defining
Voice: Like this, but I'd say less heavy and she's more understandable.
Other: Don't have any music taste for you or specific style this time, so potato salad it is.

Is a sadomasochist, meaning a sadist and a masochist.

Not to mention that the picture for him's not really working at the minute. I mean, I'm not sure if it's because I'm in a different country or anything like that but next to where it says "Appearance" it just shows the broken image picture and the word "Image" next to it. I'm not sure if anyone else is having the same problem but I figured I might as well bring it up just in case.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Ryo Shimizu
Role: Student
Appearance:
Image

Height and Weight: 5'9, 145 lbs
Short-bio: Ryo was born and raised in Kawasaki, Japan to an affluent family. It provided him a safe and stable start to his life. His father, Kentaro was an executive at the Mitsubishi Corporation and his mother, Sakiko was a journalist for the Kanagawa Shimbun. It was a pleasant home life, Ryo’s older sister, Kiyoko always looked out for him and his mother was caring. The only issue was his father's absences; he was frequently travelling and was often stationed abroad as part of his job. This left him becoming an absent figure in his children’s lives. He tried, there were frequent phone calls and each time he returned home from another assignment abroad, there were gifts and pictures of all the places he had visited. Ryo idealised these moments, the holidays and trips, but his father would only return for a few months at most before his next opportunity.

His mother Sakiko seemed to adjust better than Ryo did. She kept on with her career working as a freelance journalist, often leaving Kiyoko and Ryo with their grandparents and other relatives. School became an escape for both him and Kiyoko, they were competitive and with every achievement, they eagerly awaited their parents – especially their father’s approval. Every positive end of year report card, a good grade in English class - his father's favourite subject- or a excellent sports performance would result in effusive praise often over the phone or a special gift upon his return. Thus Ryo and his sister were both high achievers academically and with his mother frequently busy at work, he was eager to participate in all the schools clubs and activities.

His life changed dramatically when Ryo’s father was offered a permanent position at the Japan Society of New York, it was a major departure in his career, but with his strong language skills and extensive travel history, he seemed an excellent choice. His father went on ahead and the family followed at the end of the school year. Ryo had been dreading it, moving away from his friends, home and the rest of his family, but still he felt it would be all worth it if his father would be consistently around. Uprooting the family was a major event but also exciting. All his friends were envious of his opportunity to go and live in America, especially in New York. For the first six months it was difficult but still rewarding. The family was together and their parents had placed Kiyoko and Ryo into an English speaking school, the Milford-Gaudier Academy just across the Hudson River. As the family did not envision remaining in the US permanently, Ryo also attended the Japanese weekend school of New York to allow him to easily adapt back to the Japanese school system on his return.

It was tough to adapt to a new school, a new city and a new culture, but it was compensated for by the family being together. His mother and father both seemed to be always around; every weekend, there were visits to the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and even some real holidays. Eventually old patterns remerged, his father began to spend more time at work, every evening there seemed to be a new exhibition or fundraising event which he would just have to attend. His mother busied herself by preparing to write a book on life in New York and working on improving her English. Ryo began to feel betrayed, having moved to the US, without anything seeming to get better.

This past summer matters came to a head, Kiyoko graduated from high school and she elected to return back to Japan for university. Ryo and his sister had always been close and with her departure, his life seemed to get worse. She had left at least in part to return to her old life and Ryo wished he could go with her. His father had kept up an interest in his children’s lives, but as Ryo grew older, he grew less accepting of it. As his father again seemed to have no time for his family, Ryo began to ignore his praise and resent his interest – his attitude to his mother is more sympathetic as she also gave up her life to come to New York. Despite it being only a short drive from New York, Ryo asked whether he could try this year as a boarding student. He did not mention his growing resentment only the benefits to his education, he would not have to worry about the morning traffic and he could dedicate himself to more activities at school, assured it would be good for his education, they agreed. So in 2019 Ryo will be returning to MDA as a boarding student.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 01/29/2003
Hometown: Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan.
Personality:
Ryo is an organised person, having had a lot of structure in life, he is comfortable in routine. Seeing his sister’s example, he has become sensitive to others feelings and is a friendly and outgoing person. He is never happier than being an accepted part of a group. This is where his interest in Baseball has taken him at MGA. He gets validation from belonging to a group; he is a very strong team player and derives much of his identity from his success on the team. With not having much of a home life, Ryo has thrown himself into school life, presenting an amicable and friendly personality. Ryo ideally would find a group of friends, who accepted him for who he was, but if that is not possible, he is willing to adapt himself to his peers to gain some acceptance.

Ryo lives something of a double life; he has his life at MDA but he also has a close group of existing friends back in Japan, who he has known from kindergarten, through elementary school and onto junior high. To these friends, he tries to put on a brave face, portraying only the advantages of living in New York, especially passing his driving test before even reaching the legal driving age back in Japan. He tries to keep everything positive, posting pictures of his visits to famous landmarks and tourist sites. He fears losing this close friendship, the longer he spends outside of Japan, the more he sees his friends having fun together, he wonders if he is missing out and whether they will be close again when he returns to Japan. This has lessened somewhat recently when his friends came to visit for a short time this summer.

Sexual Orientation: Straight.
Likes: Keeping up with friends and family back in Japan, photography, winning, baseball, video gaming, reading books, J-Pop, Hip hop, Ichiro Suzuki, Japanese food, travelling.
Dislikes: His father, overt religiousness, criticism, feeling left out and public speaking.
Skills: Fluent in Japanese and now fluent in English. Ryo is an excellent baseball player and an excellent overall athlete and swimmer. His focus is on baseball having found that to be the easiest link between his old school back in Japan and MGA. Is a talented gamer and has a driving license.
Disorders/Handicaps:None.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals:Ryo has a few fears, primarily of missing out, both in Japan and here at MTA. He fears being an outsider and not being accepted. Despite his desire to return home, he does fear his time in the US being cut short – if for example his father’s employment status changed and being brought quickly back to Japan.
Wishes, his immediate wish is to put some distance – if not physically but emotionally - between himself and his family (excluding his sister). He also wishes for friendship to replace the void he left behind in Japan. Eventually his wish is to return back to Japan to his sister and life, after graduation. His main goal is to see just how far he can progress on the baseball field at MDA and whether this would be a realistic career for him or not.
Distinguishing Marks: None.
Voice: Like this similarly softly spoken but he will be much more confident and less hesitant in his speech.
Other: Potato Salad? How about Kohaku Namasu? Much Tastier. Starting centre fielder on the baseball team.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Luka Miranda
Role: Student
Appearance: Image
Height and Weight: 6 ft 3 in, 179
Short-bio: Miranda came from Valencia, Spain from a fairly wealthy family. His childhood was spent mostly attending a traditional Catholic school until his parents departed with the religion, a marking moment in his life. He had always showed a strong personality, with a deep focus in asserting himself despite whoever else opposed him. As a child, he was often a loner and did not make many friends outside of one girl though it was short lived. It was during middle school that he began to realize that he was gay and with changing thoughts on the matter in Europe, he decided to come out. It was met with its fair share of support and criticism from the students and he largely remained an outsider. It was then when his family, who despite the pleasures of the European educational system and its many opportunities, sought to introduce their only son to American education once he entered his teen years.

For high school, they sent him to Milford-Gaudier Academy after his mother falling for the charming school. He was sent and flourished during his freshman year, developing many friendships albeit surface level. He has enjoyed rooming with a variety of people and is considered an easy person to get along with along one does not cross him. Luke joined the student government his freshman year and with teachers supporting his writing and speaking ability, he sought the Class Presidency his sophomore year. It was a brilliant success where he was able to organize several charity drives throughout the year and the first blood drive for the school. He has done well at school, far from the smartest but retains above average success in English, foreign language, and History. This year, he seeks to continue his student leadership and to focus more on math and science after some minor complaints from his parents.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: June 27th, 2002
Hometown: Valencia, Spain
Personality: Despite being generally personable, he is often passive-aggressive, with a desire to avoid direct confrontation and instead opting for more subtle methods. This results in him often putting up a front of a happy, excited, and capable person to people despite internally often masking feelings of resentment or anger. Due to his long time in employing this technique, he has gotten fairly good at it and rarely do people meet him under this shell he has created.
Sexual Orientation: Gay
Likes: Vegetarian food, Latin music, Dancing of all forms, Politics often tending to fall as a hard liberal, Debating, and Philosophy, in particular, Roman thinkers before the Imperial Age
Dislikes: Confrontation, Rock music, Most candies and chocolates, Self-help books, People believing they are better than others, Egos of large sizes, Social media in all forms
Skills: Speaks Spanish, Decent cook though improving steadily
Disorders/Handicaps: None
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears that he will not fulfill his parent's expectations and potentially opening up to the wrong person, Wishes to find strong friendships and a potential love interest, and Goals are to pursue a career in international studies and politics maybe beginning in the United States or back in Spain
Distinguishing Marks: Scar on leg from falling into a barbed wire fence
Voice: Voice of Conan Gray, though lacks the developed singing voice but the potential is there
Other: Potato Salad...though prefers Beet salad, Intends to pursue class presidency once again, Has not had his first kiss or first anything really, Parents grant him a generous allowance

Name: Karena Svendsen
Role: Student
Appearance:
Height and Weight: 5'7" and 136 pounds.
Short-bio: Karena was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, originally only speaking Danish until her parents, and herself, decided to learn English to understand people in a large chunk of the world, since it was one of the most prominently spoken second langauges, and 3rd most spoken in general. It didn't take her long to learn it, in fact. She may have even learned some as a child, but mostly she spoke in her native language as a child. But she still learned English very young, just most of the time didn't have a reason to speak it, as she was in Denmark, so it only made sense to mostly speak her native language.

This was of course until she decided to go and be a foreign exchange student in America, specifically in New Yorkcx. This is where her English speaking would be much more prominent, and likely her accent would fade more as time went on. Though her accent wasn't so heavy she wasn't very understandable. She could be understood fairly well. But her accent was definitely there. Her main reasoning for it seemed to be for the adventure of traveling to a foreign country, and experiencing a different culture and all that from her own. Her parents accepted, even though it was also sad for her to go so far away. They also didn't entirely expect much out of the American school system, but this school had been at least highly praised. Her parents still had her younger brother to take care of back home, though, who was 10. Which the brother seemed to be a later decision to have a 2nd child instead of just having her. Now, she had gone on a foreign adventure. So now it was just the 3 of them, while their daughter tried to make something of her life in America.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: March 23rd, 2003
Hometown: Copenhagen, Denmark
Personality: Comes off as fairly normal on the surface, but she fits pretty closely with the saying that there is "More than meets the eye" to someone. You might make your preconceived opinions of someone based off of a brief interaction, but that wouldn't be enough to truly figure her out. Seems generally friendly and nice on the surface, based off of her upbeat and cheery personality. That's not to say that she isn't, but below the surface, there is more to her than that. Would likely do some more questionable things than you would imagine from someone like her. Hence her being full of surprises, really. Because she comes off as normal, but really isn't. Seems to be a bit adventurous, considering the fact that she came all the way from Denmark for a new experience, so seems interested in just aimlessly wandering. Will become sexually experimental, more so than you might imagine if you for some reason thought about that, with your assumptions based off of her normalcy. With the way she acts behind the scenes, you would think she might be a slacker who is a failure at school as well, but she's actually a fairly good student. Can be surprisingly lewd at times. Rebellious in certain circumstances.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual. Probably a 1.5 on the Kinsey Scale.
Likes: Polymorous relationships, soon-to-be sexual encounters, sadists, masochists, breaking things, adventure, wandering aimlessly, getting up to know good, etc.
Dislikes: Children, babies (Especially crying ones), toddlers, hospitals, clinics, doctors, dentists, medications, people taking things too seriously, etc.
Skills: Bilingual. Can speak fluent English (with a Danish accent), and speaks Danish, the latter being her native language. She is obviously better at Danish and is more understandable in her own language if you know it, but she is also fairly good in English and is usually fairly understandable despite her accent. Seems to be a decently skilled student in general, getting on average B to A's, without being exceptionally positive in anything specific, like beyond A's where merely getting A's is something easily achievable.
Disorders/Handicaps: Seems to have an addictive personality, but that's about it in regard to this kind of stuff. At least the most noticeable.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: A fear of the water, especially being in deep oceans. Small waterways not so much. Likely a fear of making big decisions and whatnot, because she's not really one with big set goals. Slight fear of working, because that basically makes her feel like her life is becoming too serious. Fear of making a true long term committment to someone, as that's not how she feels like approaching a relationship. Fear of hospitals or dentists, but basically because she hates those places. Fear of falling in love, because again, that's not how she approaches relationships, so falling for someone would freak her out. Fear of having to take some medication for something. Basically a fear of anything to do with medical stuff. Also pregnancy.
Wishes: To be in a sort of "relationship" where everyone's very open with each other, and to have a friend she can do crazy shit with.
Goals: Very little she has planned long term. To experience America in its fullest, really, and make it through school in mostly one piece.
Distinguishing Marks: Nothing particularly defining
Voice: Like this, but I'd say less heavy and she's more understandable.
Other: Don't have any music taste for you or specific style this time, so potato salad it is.

Is a sadomasochist, meaning a sadist and a masochist.

Following the economic recession of 09, his brother moved back to Guangzhou, where he started a consulting firm. Lawrence spent two years living with his brother in China, to "get a sense of his home country", as his mother said.

Recon wrote:REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Ryo Shimizu
Role: Student
Appearance:
Height and Weight: 5'9, 145 lbs
Short-bio: Ryo was born and raised in Kawasaki, Japan to an affluent family. It provided him a safe and stable start to his life. His father, Kentaro was an executive at the Mitsubishi Corporation and his mother, Sakiko was a journalist for the Kanagawa Shimbun. It was a pleasant home life, Ryo’s older sister, Kiyoko always looked out for him and his mother was caring. The only issue was his father's absences; he was frequently travelling and was often stationed abroad as part of his job. This left him becoming an absent figure in his children’s lives. He tried, there were frequent phone calls and each time he returned home from another assignment abroad, there were gifts and pictures of all the places he had visited. Ryo idealised these moments, the holidays and trips, but his father would only return for a few months at most before his next opportunity.

His mother Sakiko seemed to adjust better than Ryo did. She kept on with her career working as a freelance journalist, often leaving Kiyoko and Ryo with their grandparents and other relatives. School became an escape for both him and Kiyoko, they were competitive and with every achievement, they eagerly awaited their parents – especially their father’s approval. Every positive end of year report card, a good grade in English class - his father's favourite subject- or a excellent sports performance would result in effusive praise often over the phone or a special gift upon his return. Thus Ryo and his sister were both high achievers academically and with his mother frequently busy at work, he was eager to participate in all the schools clubs and activities.

His life changed dramatically when Ryo’s father was offered a permanent position at the Japan Society of New York, it was a major departure in his career, but with his strong language skills and extensive travel history, he seemed an excellent choice. His father went on ahead and the family followed at the end of the school year. Ryo had been dreading it, moving away from his friends, home and the rest of his family, but still he felt it would be all worth it if his father would be consistently around. Uprooting the family was a major event but also exciting. All his friends were envious of his opportunity to go and live in America, especially in New York. For the first six months it was difficult but still rewarding. The family was together and their parents had placed Kiyoko and Ryo into an English speaking school, the Milford-Gaudier Academy just across the Hudson River. As the family did not envision remaining in the US permanently, Ryo also attended the Japanese weekend school of New York to allow him to easily adapt back to the Japanese school system on his return.

It was tough to adapt to a new school, a new city and a new culture, but it was compensated for by the family being together. His mother and father both seemed to be always around; every weekend, there were visits to the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and even some real holidays. Eventually old patterns remerged, his father began to spend more time at work, every evening there seemed to be a new exhibition or fundraising event which he would just have to attend. His mother busied herself by preparing to write a book on life in New York and working on improving her English. Ryo began to feel betrayed, having moved to the US, without anything seeming to get better.

This past summer matters came to a head, Kiyoko graduated from high school and she elected to return back to Japan for university. Ryo and his sister had always been close and with her departure, his life seemed to get worse. She had left at least in part to return to her old life and Ryo wished he could go with her. His father had kept up an interest in his children’s lives, but as Ryo grew older, he grew less accepting of it. As his father again seemed to have no time for his family, Ryo began to ignore his praise and resent his interest – his attitude to his mother is more sympathetic as she also gave up her life to come to New York. Despite it being only a short drive from New York, Ryo asked whether he could try this year as a boarding student. He did not mention his growing resentment only the benefits to his education, he would not have to worry about the morning traffic and he could dedicate himself to more activities at school, assured it would be good for his education, they agreed. So in 2019 Ryo will be returning to MDA as a boarding student.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 01/29/2003
Hometown: Kawasaki, Kanagawa, Japan.
Personality:
Ryo is an organised person, having had a lot of structure in life, he is comfortable in routine. Seeing his sister’s example, he has become sensitive to others feelings and is a friendly and outgoing person. He is never happier than being an accepted part of a group. This is where his interest in Baseball has taken him at MGA. He gets validation from belonging to a group; he is a very strong team player and derives much of his identity from his success on the team. With not having much of a home life, Ryo has thrown himself into school life, presenting an amicable and friendly personality. Ryo ideally would find a group of friends, who accepted him for who he was, but if that is not possible, he is willing to adapt himself to his peers to gain some acceptance.

Ryo lives something of a double life; he has his life at MDA but he also has a close group of existing friends back in Japan, who he has known from kindergarten, through elementary school and onto junior high. To these friends, he tries to put on a brave face, portraying only the advantages of living in New York, especially passing his driving test before even reaching the legal driving age back in Japan. He tries to keep everything positive, posting pictures of his visits to famous landmarks and tourist sites. He fears losing this close friendship, the longer he spends outside of Japan, the more he sees his friends having fun together, he wonders if he is missing out and whether they will be close again when he returns to Japan. This has lessened somewhat recently when his friends came to visit for a short time this summer.

Sexual Orientation: Straight.
Likes: Keeping up with friends and family back in Japan, photography, winning, baseball, video gaming, reading books, J-Pop, Hip hop, Ichiro Suzuki, Japanese food, travelling.
Dislikes: His father, overt religiousness, criticism, feeling left out and public speaking.
Skills: Fluent in Japanese and now fluent in English. Ryo is an excellent baseball player and an excellent overall athlete and swimmer. His focus is on baseball having found that to be the easiest link between his old school back in Japan and MGA. Is a talented gamer and has a driving license.
Disorders/Handicaps:None.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals:Ryo has a few fears, primarily of missing out, both in Japan and here at MTA. He fears being an outsider and not being accepted. Despite his desire to return home, he does fear his time in the US being cut short – if for example his father’s employment status changed and being brought quickly back to Japan.
Wishes, his immediate wish is to put some distance – if not physically but emotionally - between himself and his family (excluding his sister). He also wishes for friendship to replace the void he left behind in Japan. Eventually his wish is to return back to Japan to his sister and life, after graduation. His main goal is to see just how far he can progress on the baseball field at MDA and whether this would be a realistic career for him or not.
Distinguishing Marks: None.
Voice: Like this similarly softly spoken but he will be much more confident and less hesitant in his speech.
Other: Potato Salad? How about Kohaku Namasu? Much Tastier. Starting centre fielder on the baseball team.
