REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Ernest Ingerstadt
Role: Student
Appearance: Image
Height and Weight: 180cm, 75kg
Short-bio: Born in Erfurt in the Landtag of Thuringia to Linz Ingerstadt, the owner of Ingerstadt Bank, and to Valerie Ingerstadt. He has an older brother, Erwin, and a younger sister and brother each named Annaline and Eckhardt. When he was a young child, he and Erwin were extremely close, getting along extremely well and being considerate to each other. Whilst he wasn't particularly rude to Annaline, he mostly ignored her, whilst Eckhardt was mostly just quarrelling..Erwin, however, moved away to England as soon as he was able to; in order to study in London. Ernest still keeps contact with Erwin, but mostly focuses on his life now. Meanwhile, in school, Ernest was told by his teachers that he had an 'amazing proficiency' in music, and soon picked up a talent for the piano and the violin, preferring classical music and such. He loved music and spent most of his spare time playing or attempting to compose it. When he was about 12, however, his parents and his younger siblings moved to New York City to enjoy the American life. Ernest soon enough adapted to American society, learning English, albeit still with an accent. Despite his intelligence, however, he isn't too athletic, albeit he isn't fat either. He sometimes feels lonely, lacking in friends, albeit this is mostly because he prefers music to them, still regretting it at the end.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 06/03/2003 (Or, to be less ambiguous, the 6th of March, 2003)
Hometown: Erfurt, Thurginia. Now lives in New York City however.
Personality: Quite dark, slightly depressed, but it really doesn't show. Despite being introverted most of the time, he's sometimes willing to make new friends and opens up to them. He likes other people who are interested in music, and likes to meditate and relax in his spare time. He isn't judgemental of other people, not really caring about them. When you really get him angry, though, which is quite hard, he resorts to more 'high-level' insults such as insulting intelligence, talent or the fact you've wasted hundreds of hours on this random game. He is also sometimes quite pretentious when people play music badly, along with being a severe perfectionist and critic
Sexual Orientation: Gay
Likes: Classical music (Also sometimes romanticist music), modern art, ice skating, dancing, people being welcoming of others, friendly people, also the fellow cultured people of his kind, museums, fellow Germans and things designed with care and with intelligence.
Dislikes: Modern music, xenophobia, people being overly rude for no particular reason, people who are unable to play music, 'uncultured' people and sport.
Skills: A musical genius, he also has other talents, which, albeit not to the degree of his music talent, are still quite remarkable. These talents are his painting and writing abilities, furthermore, he also has some knack for insulting people and is generally quite an intellectual, although not to the degree that most intellectuals are.
Disorders/Handicaps: Red-Green Colourblindness.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: His main fear is that of silence, of standing still, of still waters, and also of a lack of knowledge and people losing their sense of critical thought and culture. His wishes are to become better and better at music, improving as much as he can, perhaps even becoming a professional music player. Another one of his goals is to find a good friend who shares his tastes - or even better - a romantic relationship.
Distinguishing Marks: Nothing, really
Voice: Mild German accent (Albeit not stereotypical), deep yet welcoming voice.
Other: Po-tah-toe Salad.

The concept is okay by me. Not that it makes a difference, but I assume you're saying the son enlisted for boarding school in the United States, with his parents still living back in their home country?

Oh no, I meant that he was born in Germany and his parents moved to America in order to enjoy the country.

Room 03. Unless it would be better to put him in 04 because that is the only other occupied room right now?

(Also I think I may have caused some confusion, I put his name in Chinese name order without thinking. His given name is Yixuan and surname/family name is Zhu)

Noted, and it shall be corrected.

I will give your character Room 3, for now, until/unless you wish for 4, or another.

1 of probably 6.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Cassandra Goldberg
Role: Student
Appearance:
ImageImageImage

Height and Weight: 5'6" and 133 pounds
Short-bio: Cassandra was born in Ireland, and at the age of 8, she and her family moved to America, specifically the New York City area, and then to Jersey City. This is where her Irish accent began to fade away, becoming less prominent but still existing to an extent. Though, at times she wonders if she should try and train herself to use her Irish accent again, because she finds it to be cooler than sounding American. Her parents were good to her, though they and their daughter didn't technically have this huge bond together or anything. They were close, but not overly so, and they were all perfectly fine with that. She disconnected herself from her parents more once she became a teenager, as well.

As she began to do this, and started doing her own thing, this is where she began to get substance abuse problems. She got in with the wrong sorts of "friends", who aren't much of friends to her anymore, and that got her into drugs, smoking, and drinking. Mostly drugs and smoking, though. The drinking part wasn't as big of an addiction of hers. She hasn't managed to ween herself off of any of the addictions yet, or even really attempted to try. She has a sort of carefree attitude, and thinks it is better to just "Live in the moment" then worry about what might happen to you in the future, so she probably just doesn't even care if she slowly kills herself anyway. Her parents obviously weren't too happy about these addictions, and had been pondering suggesting she go to rehab, but she protested against the idea so it never got around to happening.

Also, on top of all of that, she had a bit of a period where she did more than just those substance abuses. There was a couple of times that, with said wrong "friends", they probably did some things that they shouldn't. Sneaking into peoples yards, being disorderly in general, and even once, breaking into someones house itself. She had never told anyone, including her parents, about this period in her life, and luckily (If you can call it lucky), she never got caught for it. Though it does seem to bother her a bit when she thinks back on it that she did do that. She may be a jerk, but that doesn't mean that she wants to be an outright criminal.

Then, about a year later, they decided to see if sending their daughter to a boarding school might help her get better on her own, or at least do something better with her life. Cassandra herself was fine with the decision, but for other reasons then her parents attempt, which will probably backfire. Her reasoning for approving of it was because it got her farther away from parental influence, and she felt that she would be more capable of doing whatever the hell she wanted, even though she didn't hate her parents or anything. Still didn't mean she wasn't pleased with getting away from them. Of course, parental influence would be replaced with equally irritating school authority...

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: December 13th, 2002
Hometown: Outskirts of Dublin, Republic of Ireland
Personality: One of her most notable traits is that she doesn't appear to be afraid to speak her mind, and because of her honesty, she can come off as a bit of a jerk sometimes (Okay, almost always). Though, she could PROBABLY be nicer and still be honest, but of course, also a part of her personality, is that she doesn't give a shit what people think, or what they want her to do for that matter, so those types of people telling her to be nicer would just get ignored. The same there also is that if they say that nobody will like her because of it, she doesn't care about that, either. Seems to have a noticeable issue with authority, and isn't afraid to verbally clash with them if the situation fits it. Has an addictive personality, getting addicted to substances quite easily. Makes assumptions about people a lot, though fairly often they prove to be accurate. Tends to just have an attitude in general towards people, being honest or not. However, even with all of that, she seems to be an alright person nonetheless if you can get used to dealing with her all the time, and if you're a close friend to her, you most likely have a very good companion to have on your side. If you get bullied, she wouldn't be afraid to talk shit back to the bully, even if she may come off as a bit of a bully herself sometimes. She can be very protective of those that she does care about (Which is pretty much nobody, but still). Is a bit of a slacker in school, though isn't terrible at it, either. Just doesn't care enough to bother doing substantially good at anything. That's probably about it.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual, though doesn't seem to care much for the idea of relationships or intimacy whatsoever.
Likes: Alcohol, smoking, drugs (Most likely all of these until later when it starts making you feel like shit), metal music, and uh...there's probably others but I think she dislikes more than she likes.
Dislikes: Sometimes it seems like people in general she dislikes, people who try and act smart but instead look like idiots, jocks, overly cheery people, overly happy people, politics, willfully ignorant people, pop music, radio music in general, people who generalize, especially when it comes to generalizing metal heads (Of course, she does generalizing herself, because hey, she's human so she's a hypocrite), authority figures, people who think they're above everyone else, politicians, banks, many other things because it is Cassandra...
Skills: Uh...Being able to consume a good amount of alcohol? Decent at school when she wants to be? Again with the way her life is set up, she doesn't have many defining skillsets.
Disorders/Handicaps: Substance abuse of all types is pretty much her biggest disorder and handicap. Due to various reasons, she got addicted to a lot of things. Seemingly, she has an addictive personality. And due to all of these addictions, she can occasionally be found in an....off state. Though she's also kind of an ass...So she's not the most appealing drunk.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: Possibly a fear of making big life decisions (Something she prefers to avoid altogether), and uh...there are probably others if I thought about it long enough, but looking through an entire list, this is about all I could find. The thing is, she has more pretty much dislikes, or doesn't like something more so then an actual fear of it, so it is hard for me to add it as a fear because of that. But I won't say she's "fearless" because I don't believe there is such a thing.
Wishes: None. Doesn't even have a wish to get over her addictions. Pretty much just...none.
Goals: None
Distinguishing Marks: Got her ears pierced and got a nose piercing.
Voice: Like this, with a hint of an Irish accent, but she's lived in America long enough that it isn't very prominent.
Other: Snippet of Music Taste: Cattle Decapitation, Chthe'ilist, Gojira, Gorguts, Unhuman, Ajattara, Deathspell Omega, Altar of Plagues, Dimmu Borgir, Melechesh, Summoning, Candlemass, Celtic Frost, Triptykon, Orphaned Land, Black Sabbath, Godflesh, Ministry, Dir en Grey, Ihsahn, Isis, Neurosis, Vektor, Metallica, and so many more
Snippet of Clothing Style: This is her main outfit, but there is this, this, and this that would work as well.
She drives a hand-me-down 1995 Toyota Camry

Bachelor number two:



REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Veikko Pääkkönen (pronounced vay-ko PAH-ka-nen)
Role: Student
Appearance:
Image
Image

Height and Weight: 5' 10" and 160lb
Short-bio: Veikko Pääkkönen (he has no middle name) was born in Tornio, on the Finnish side of the Sweden-Finland border, on 23rd March, 2003. The oldest of three kids (although his youngest sibling is technically his half-brother), his parents got divorced at a young age; though they would make up and break up a number of times (and end up producing his younger sister Marjatta), they would never remarry. Growing up in a relatively quiet city, Veikko spent his youth trying to make his own fun. When he was six years old, his father took him to a pesäpallo game, which kickstarted his interest in the sport; five years later, he'd catch a baseball game online and decided that's what he wanted to do when he was older. When he was 12, he met some friends and formed a small group that called themselves the Gang of Idiots (English translation) and they ended up doing a variety of things, like swimming across the river Torne, dirt bike racing and making their own kilju to sell, drink or both. And, at the age of 15 and with the help of a fake ID, Veikko managed to get a "brand new" rally car, which he occasionally takes out for spins. All in all, not a very interesting life back in Finland.

However, the year before he set off to the Americas, he discovered that he had a second cousin (once removed) called Lauri Lehtanen, who had moved over there when his small tech company (that, as you'd expect, is vague in what it actually does) made it big. The two began talking and developed a rapport, which lead to them learning quite a bit. When Veikko told Lauri about his interest in playing baseball in the USA, Lauri not only managed to get him into his business partner's alma mater in Milford-Gaudier Academy but also invited him to stay in his apartment across the river in New York (a move that he later came to regret because now life's become sort of like The Odd Couple). And now, living in his cousin's apartment in Chelsea and attending a prestigious school, Veikko's hoping that this will be the start of something bigger.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 23/03/2003 (or 03/23/2003)
Hometown: Tornio, Finland
Personality: Despite constantly maintaining a stoic facial expression (to the point where when he smiles it looks a bit unnatural), Veikko is actually quite out of touch with the world and has a habit of saying or doing weird things (a number of which aren't actual Finnish customs). While taciturn, he isn't exactly mute and is capable of having a proper conversation, especially if it's something that interests him. He does have a tendency to swear, albeit mostly in Finnish (and a good chunk of the weird things he says are Finnish swears literally translated) though, for obvious reasons, I'll keep it as PG-13 as possible. And he does have a habit of chatting up the ladies but, for a variety of reasons (namely his general oddness, his uncouthness, his drinking habits and his missing bit of finger), he's almost always unsuccessful in landing a girlfriend. Despite all of this, he's still a good friend who'd stick up for people he likes, he knows when "no means no" and he's not even malevolent, just odd.
Sexual Orientation: Straight, though I could imagine a few Ho Yay situations involving him (either intentional or not)
Likes: Baseball (and its Finnish counterpart pesäpallo), though he doesn't have any favourite teams; girls; alcohol (usually beer or kilju; 70s, 80s and early 90s hard rock and metal; salmiakki (salted liquorice, though he's not keen on normal liquorice); and rallying. He's also quite keen on Call of Duty, Doom, Colin McRae Rally (including the Dirt series) and Grand Theft Auto. And, while he doesn't really care that much about ice hockey, he will keep an eye on Oulun Kärpät, as they're the closest team to him.
Dislikes: He doesn't seem to have a lot of things he dislikes, though as mentioned in the last paragraph he's not keen on liquorice unless it's salted and he's not that big on chocolate either. Although he doesn't have any favourite teams, he's not super keen on the Cleveland Indians or Pittsburgh Pirates as he doesn't think they're good teams; while he's not keen on the Mets, he will still play for them for a while.
Skills: Due to the way pesäpallo's set up, Veikko's got a good ground game and a good level of stamina, which could potentially be good enough to give his side a bit of an edge. He's also got quite a high tolerance for alcohol, though it's more genetic as opposed to him drinking a lot and building up an immunity that way. And he does have some knowledge of fixing cars, though he wouldn't necessarily call himself a mechanic.
Disorders/Handicaps: While he does drink regularly, he's still somewhat functioning. He's also missing a part of one of his fingers, though whether or not that counts as a handicap depends on the person he's talking to.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: He's afraid of dying, especially if it's young. Other than that, he doesn't really seem to have any fears, though he does get freaked out by jump scares (although anything that relies on jump scares, such as FNAF, just bores him instead).

Wishes: To get a girlfriend but also to land a spot on the school's baseball team. He doesn't mind which position but, due to the nature of pesäpallo, he has no interest in pitching or catching.

Goals: To play in the MLB, though other than two of the three I mentioned earlier he won't mind which team ends up drafting him.
Distinguishing Marks: As previously mentioned, he's missing the tip of his right ring finger, having lost it in a dirt bike accident when he was 13.
Voice: Here's what Carolina Hurricanes center (and Veikko's FC) Sebastian Aho sounds like.
Other: Drives a 1982 Audi Quattro A2 rally car, which his cousin had airlifted all the way over from Finland, though he has a fake licence (under the name Jari Litmanen). Despite living literally across the border from Sweden and even visiting the country on occasion, he can't speak Swedish, only Finnish and English. And he doesn't have a favouite salad, though if he had to pick he would probably say potato salad.

Imperial Esplanade I'm withdrawing my old app (Lachlan Dean Kwan) and replace it with a new one in its stead below. It felt like a self-insert. Sorry for being fickle and all that.


REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Pavel Kruczynski
Role: Student
Appearance:
Image

Height and Weight: 6'0, 154 lbs
Short-bio: It all started with a boarding school romance between a Polish-American boy and a French-American girl. Then, the two got married, moved to New York and raised two girls and a boy, and Pavel was the middle child. Despite a fruitful childhood, his mom and dad, a fashion designer and IT company manager respectively, became busier and spent less time with their children each passing day, frustrating him and lending him a rebellious. This in turn would frustrate his parents, so much that they sent him to Parisian elementary and high school boarding schools. It was there in the City of Cinema where he discovered his sexuality and passion in filmmaking/photography and soccer. His parents were supportive, and he partook in photo shoots and directing music videos and amateur short films across France, despite a few risks and rule-breaking. Yet Paris can only offer Pavel so much. He missed New York at the same time as he was fascinated like a wide-eyed tourist, After enough persuasion, Pavel finally set foot in New York for the first time in seven years. This was in part of him choosing the prestigious Milford-Gauthier Academy, where he is currently enrolled, facing an uncertain future ahead.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 02/08/2003
Hometown: Manhattan, New York
Personality: Pavel is a mellow, laid-back and gentle-hearted person who is loyal and endearing to those he likes and isn't afraid to try new things within reason. He is highly observant and perceptive, especially in lonesome. Being the middle child, he is considerate and a peacemaker, and would rather resolve conflicts diplomatically unless being forced to use violence. While approaching things with immense composure, he has a habit of assuming the responsibility of his actions, making him a harsh judge of self especially when things go south. Nevertheless, Pavel is a passionate, creative and a quick-thinking intelligent person. While laser-focused on his goals and hobbies, he is surprisingly flexible and patient and has shown a love for improvising things to his favor.
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual (leans to girls)
Likes: Anything that involves a camera, film, soccer, cooking, drawing, art, reading, writing short stories, sweets, rap and indie music, watching and photographing thunderstorms, internet memes, cats
Dislikes: Being pressured, people who don't appreciate talent, jerk nerds & teachers, repeating himself, vague/delayed instructions, politics, being ignored for long periods of time, people who don't appreciate art, prolonged routine, mediocrity
Skills: Excellent amateur filmmaker, photographer, editor and cook; good with drawing, watercolors and writing; a decent amateur film critic; quite good at soccer.
Disorders/Handicaps: Minor depression and anxiety.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Pavel is rather anxious and fearful of mediocrity, or rather, becoming mediocre. He's also quite nervous of the upcoming school year, anxious about his first and lasting impressions. Pavel wishes to become better in his passions, and perhaps even explore new horizons and hobbies. He hates being put into a mold, and strives to make a path for himself as a professional filmmaker/photographer. Right now, his goals are to join the school soccer team, re-explore what New York (and America) has to offer, make new friends and perhaps a romantic relationship. He also wants to score more photo shoots and direct a few more music videos and short films.
Distinguishing Marks: Black-and-white serpent tattoo on left shoulder, scar on right eyebrow.
Voice: Timothée Chalamet
Other: Pavel has a Russian Blue cat named Sergei. He has an assortment of cameras that he uses, his weapon of choice is the Nikon D850. Salatka Kartofli (Potato Salad).

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Pavel Kruczynski
Role: Student
Appearance:
Height and Weight: 6'0, 154 lbs
Short-bio: It all started with a boarding school romance between a Polish-American boy and a French-American girl. Then, the two got married, moved to New York and raised two girls and a boy, and Pavel was the middle child. Despite a fruitful childhood, his mom and dad, a fashion designer and IT company manager respectively, became busier and spent less time with their children each passing day, frustrating him and lending him a rebellious. This in turn would frustrate his parents, so much that they sent him to Parisian elementary and high school boarding schools. It was there in the City of Cinema where he discovered his sexuality and passion in filmmaking/photography and soccer. His parents were supportive, and he partook in photo shoots and directing music videos and amateur short films across France, despite a few risks and rule-breaking. Yet Paris can only offer Pavel so much. He missed New York at the same time as he was fascinated like a wide-eyed tourist, After enough persuasion, Pavel finally set foot in New York for the first time in seven years. This was in part of him choosing the prestigious Milford-Gauthier Academy, where he is currently enrolled, facing an uncertain future ahead.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 02/08/2003
Hometown: Manhattan, New York
Personality: Pavel is a mellow, laid-back and gentle-hearted person who is loyal and endearing to those he likes and isn't afraid to try new things within reason. He is highly observant and perceptive, especially in lonesome. Being the middle child, he is considerate and a peacemaker, and would rather resolve conflicts diplomatically unless being forced to use violence. While approaching things with immense composure, he has a habit of assuming the responsibility of his actions, making him a harsh judge of self especially when things go south.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Veikko Pääkkönen (pronounced vay-ko PAH-ka-nen)
Role: Student
Appearance:
Height and Weight: 5' 10" and 160lb
Short-bio: Veikko Pääkkönen (he has no middle name) was born in Tornio, on the Finnish side of the Sweden-Finland border, on 23rd March, 2003. The oldest of three kids (although his youngest sibling is technically his half-brother), his parents got divorced at a young age; though they would make up and break up a number of times (and end up producing his younger sister Marjatta), they would never remarry. Growing up in a relatively quiet city, Veikko spent his youth trying to make his own fun. When he was six years old, his father took him to a pesäpallo game, which kickstarted his interest in the sport; five years later, he'd catch a baseball game online and decided that's what he wanted to do when he was older. When he was 12, he met some friends and formed a small group that called themselves the Gang of Idiots (English translation) and they ended up doing a variety of things, like swimming across the river Torne, dirt bike racing and making their own kilju to sell, drink or both. And, at the age of 15 and with the help of a fake ID, Veikko managed to get a "brand new" rally car, which he occasionally takes out for spins. All in all, not a very interesting life back in Finland.

However, the year before he set off to the Americas, he discovered that he had a second cousin (once removed) called Lauri Lehtanen, who had moved over there when his small tech company (that, as you'd expect, is vague in what it actually does) made it big. The two began talking and developed a rapport, which lead to them learning quite a bit. When Veikko told Lauri about his interest in playing baseball in the USA, Lauri not only managed to get him into his business partner's alma mater in Milford-Gaudier Academy but also invited him to stay in his apartment across the river in New York (a move that he later came to regret because now life's become sort of like The Odd Couple). And now, living in his cousin's apartment in Chelsea and attending a prestigious school, Veikko's hoping that this will be the start of something bigger.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 23/03/2003 (or 03/23/2003)
Hometown: Tornio, Finland
Personality: Despite constantly maintaining a stoic facial expression (to the point where when he smiles it looks a bit unnatural), Veikko is actually quite out of touch with the world and has a habit of saying or doing weird things (a number of which aren't actual Finnish customs). While taciturn, he isn't exactly mute and is capable of having a proper conversation, especially if it's something that interests him. He does have a tendency to swear, albeit mostly in Finnish (and a good chunk of the weird things he says are Finnish swears literally translated) though, for obvious reasons, I'll keep it as PG-13 as possible. And he does have a habit of chatting up the ladies but, for a variety of reasons (namely his general oddness, his uncouthness, his drinking habits and his missing bit of finger), he's almost always unsuccessful in landing a girlfriend. Despite all of this, he's still a good friend who'd stick up for people he likes, he knows when "no means no" and he's not even malevolent, just odd.
Sexual Orientation: Straight, though I could imagine a few Ho Yay situations involving him (either intentional or not)
Likes: Baseball (and its Finnish counterpart pesäpallo), though he doesn't have any favourite teams; girls; alcohol (usually beer or kilju; 70s, 80s and early 90s hard rock and metal; salmiakki (salted liquorice, though he's not keen on normal liquorice); and rallying. He's also quite keen on Call of Duty, Doom, Colin McRae Rally (including the Dirt series) and Grand Theft Auto. And, while he doesn't really care that much about ice hockey, he will keep an eye on Oulun Kärpät, as they're the closest team to him.
Dislikes: He doesn't seem to have a lot of things he dislikes, though as mentioned in the last paragraph he's not keen on liquorice unless it's salted and he's not that big on chocolate either. Although he doesn't have any favourite teams, he's not super keen on the Cleveland Indians or Pittsburgh Pirates as he doesn't think they're good teams; while he's not keen on the Mets, he will still play for them for a while.
Skills: Due to the way pesäpallo's set up, Veikko's got a good ground game and a good level of stamina, which could potentially be good enough to give his side a bit of an edge. He's also got quite a high tolerance for alcohol, though it's more genetic as opposed to him drinking a lot and building up an immunity that way. And he does have some knowledge of fixing cars, though he wouldn't necessarily call himself a mechanic.
Disorders/Handicaps: While he does drink regularly, he's still somewhat functioning. He's also missing a part of one of his fingers, though whether or not that counts as a handicap depends on the person he's talking to.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: He's afraid of dying, especially if it's young. Other than that, he doesn't really seem to have any fears, though he does get freaked out by jump scares (although anything that relies on jump scares, such as FNAF, just bores him instead).

Wishes: To get a girlfriend but also to land a spot on the school's baseball team. He doesn't mind which position but, due to the nature of pesäpallo, he has no interest in pitching or catching.

Goals: To play in the MLB, though other than two of the three I mentioned earlier he won't mind which team ends up drafting him.
Distinguishing Marks: As previously mentioned, he's missing the tip of his right ring finger, having lost it in a dirt bike accident when he was 13.
Voice: Here's what Carolina Hurricanes center (and Veikko's FC) Sebastian Aho sounds like.
Other: Drives a 1982 Audi Quattro A2 rally car, which his cousin had airlifted all the way over from Finland, though he has a fake licence (under the name Jari Litmanen). Despite living literally across the border from Sweden and even visiting the country on occasion, he can't speak Swedish, only Finnish and English. And he doesn't have a favouite salad, though if he had to pick he would probably say potato salad.

And here's a (probably not-so) surprising pick for bachelor number three:



REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Peter Kowalski
Role: Student
Appearance:
ImageImageImage

Yes, I know that a junior that already has facial hair might seem a bit off but a) I knew a kid in my last year of secondary school (which would make us all 15-16) who was already growing a moustache and b) having used him for quite a while I honestly find it hard to imagine Peter Kowalski without his trademark stubble (even though Aaron Ekblad, his FC, has already grown a full-on beard).

Height and Weight: 6' 1" (185cm) and 177lb (80.3kg)
Short-bio: Peter Wayne Kowalski was born in Roncesvalles, Toronto, ON on September 22nd, 2002. The youngest of Douglas Kowalski and Béatrice Levasseur (since Quebecois women don't take their husband's name when they get married), he has two older brothers (Matt and Mike, both of whom were born on January 3rd, 1999). And, while Matt and Mike settled into school alright, Peter was mainly quiet and preferred to hang around in the background. Although more of the same happened in middle school, he at least tried to be a bit more sociable in high school, seeing as his mother was a science teacher there. Eventually, his parents decided that it would be a good idea to try a boarding school, as it would usually require him to share a room with at least one person. Thanks to a combination of his dad getting a pay rise to afford it and his company helping them fund a new computer lab over there, Peter was able to get into Milford-Gaudier Academy. Now living south of the border for the next year, it's just a question of whether he can keep his sanity, make at least one friend (mostly to get his parents off his back) and try and avoid in getting caught up in any unnecessary drama.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 22/09/2002 (or 09/22/2002)
Hometown: Toronto, ON, Canada
Personality: To put it bluntly, Peter's a bit of a loner, albeit one by choice. As a result, he tends to be quiet, slightly reserved and, most of the time, you won't know he's there. However, that isn't a major problem to him because he enjoys being by himself, gives him time to think. In fact, it only becomes a problem if you keep trying to socialise with him even when it's clear that he doesn't want to talk. You could argue that would make him a bit of a jerk, although he won't do anything malicious and, if provoked, he would either say a snide remark or just call you out on it; when you push him too far, he would challenge you to a cooking duel, a free throwing contest or, in really rare circumstances, a fight. He also has a tendency to swear in Quebecois, although he is trying to cut down on it. He also gives people outside of whatever his small circle of friends will be nicknames, although it's not out of malice but rather because a) he's not really that good with remembering names and b) he doesn't really imagine that he'll talk to them a lot.

However, there are moments where he can be sociable under his own free will. For example, if someone he's talking to for the first time starts the conversation then he'll carry it on normally; however, it doesn't really work the other way around. Apart from that, he's very close to his family and gets along very well with them, often messaging his relatives every day just to let them know how he is (especially since he sadly can't join them for Thanksgiving). And, if you're on his good side, then he's the most loyal friend you can have.

Apart from that, he's normally a straight B student. Not because it doesn't really interest him but because it keeps him out of the limelight and stops him getting extra unwanted attention, meaning that he can still keep to himself. But, if there's anything he likes doing, he'll put plenty of effort and passion into it. In other words, he's a bit Brilliant, but Lazy.
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Likes: Hockey; basketball; cooking; cooking shows, his favourite being Iron Chef; poutine, which is not only his specialty but also his favourite food; donuts (especially Tim Hortons); tea, both ice and regular; macaroni and cheese (bonus points if it's Kraft Dinner); Winter; Rick and Morty, his favourite TV show; wrestling (with his top five being Mick Foley, Lance Storm, Dean Ambrose, Daniel Bryan and, of course, his older brother Matt who got him into it); Toronto Blue Jays; and, of course...

Favourite East Coast Rappers: Nas; Biggie; Beastie Boys; Jay Z; Wu-Tang Clan; Immortal Technique; El-P (whether it be solo stuff, Company Flow, Run the Jewels or anything else); Mos Def (or Yasiin Bey as he could technically be called); Big L; KRS-One; Gang Starr; Public Enemy; Run DMC; Big Pun
Favourite West Coast Rappers: Earl Sweatshirt; Snoop Dogg; Tupac; NWA (although he's not a big fan of Eazy-E and, apart from a few exceptions, Ice Cube post-The Predator); Ice-T; DJ Quik; Kendrick Lamar; Nate Dogg; clipping.; E-40
Other music he likes: Outkast (his favourite); Frank Ocean; Common; Billie Holliday; Geto Boys; Kanye West (although he hates Yeezus, isn't that big on The Life of Pablo and thinks FourFiveSeconds is the worst song he ever did); UGK; Blackstreet; J. Cole; Lil Jon (more a guilty pleasure, though)

Dislikes: Coffee; rock music (yes, including The Tragically Hip); metal; both Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor (so, obviously, he won't like that Marvin Gaye song); football (both American, Canadian and soccer); dubstep; smoking; drugs; jocks; being around people for too long; mumble rap (namely Future and Young Thug); Cleveland Cavaliers, even though LeBron's no longer on the team; Golden State Warriors; NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman (although to be fair not a lot of Canadians like him); being touched (although friends, family and those with a good reason are the only exceptions). Also politics, to a lesser extent. He's also not fond of the Arizona Coyotes, although it's less due to the team but more thanks to the NHL (Gary Bettman in particular) and their owners doing whatever it takes to keep the franchise there even though they should've moved out a long time ago. And, as he's part French Canadian, a good way to irk him is to pronounce crème fraîche as "creem freesh"; he doesn't really get mad (unless you repeat it), he'll just correct you with the correct pronunciation, "krem fresh".
Skills: He's very good at basketball, having played it about every day for about ten years. And, even though I don't know if he'll be able to show it off unless someone pushes him that far, he's an excellent cook, with poutine being his specialty. And he's also aware of the fourth wall but he prefers to use aside glances and the occasional comment.
Disorders/Handicaps: Much like his father, Peter has Asperger's Syndrome, though fortunately he's high functioning and can handle himself most of the time, though it's still recommended to have someone keep an eye on him every once in a while. He's also allergic to coconuts.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: He's afraid of letting people down, which is probably one explanation as to why he's so introverted and why he tries to be average; afraid of getting ill, although it doesn't get to the point where he thinks he's dying just because he coughed; and he's afraid of mice and rats, mostly out of fear of contamination. He also doesn't like large groups of people, but it's more a dislike than a fear.

Wishes: He doesn't really have that many wishes, really. Maybe get through high school without any serious problems. Getting a girlfriend or any friends might be a bonus, but that's more of a side-wish.

Goals: His main goal is to either go to a good culinary school or apprentice under a good chef, so he can perfect his art and fulfil his lifelong dream of becoming a chef. Bonus points if it's one in Canada.
Distinguishing Marks: His stubble, which makes him look older than he really is.
Voice: Not exactly a Torontonian accent (as Aaron Ekblad was born in Windsor but grew up in Belle River), but here's what he sounds like.
Other: Drives around in a 1994 Dodge Shadow, although it's had a few moderations (namely a new stereo so Peter can plug his iPod into it). Almost always wears a beige field jacket, a shirt related to his likes, blue or black jeans, black and grey socks and a pair of Converse One Star trainers, though he has been known to wear hockey jerseys from time to time. He very rarely drinks but still uses alcoholic beverages in recipes, such as beer batter or a red wine sauce. And, other than coleslaw, he doesn't really like salads although he's still happily make them, including a quite good potato salad.

And the joke ran its course a while back since I've never seen The Dating Game and it's been years since I watched Blind Date but here's the bachelorette anyway:



REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Erin Sarenda
Role: Student
Appearance:
Image
Image

OK, not really an exact likeness but pretty much the closest to what I had in mind. So just imagine Jasmine Pereira, seen above, with black hair and you've pretty much got Erin.

Height and Weight: 5' 6" and 137lb
Short-bio: Erin Katherine Sarenda was born in Auckland, New Zealand on October 21st, 2000. When she was 4 years old, she, her parents and her three older brothers - Dan, Gregor and Graham (or Gray as people call him for short) - left Auckland and moved to Snells Beach, a small town 66km north of the city; a year after the move, her younger brother Terry was born. And, from then until she was ten, she didn't really lead an eventful life. She never really played with dolls when she was younger, instead tossing them aside and playing with her brothers' Action Man figures. She took up football (soccer) when she was eight and probably would've gone into it had she not gotten into music. And there was a bad experience she had with a load of bees that one time when she was seven, but don't expect her to bring it up.

When she was 10 years old, she started getting into metal, listening to her brother Graham's albums, namely Godflesh and Rammstein. After constantly pestering her parents into getting a guitar, she eventually got a bass guitar for her 11th birthday. This not only inspired her to take up music as a potential career but it also kickstarted her interest in industrial music, where she tried looking up more bands that play in that style. This lead to her discovering bands like Chemlab, KMFDM, Ministry and Cubanate, which culminated in her discovering industrial dance music and, with that, the rivethead subculture.

Eventually, with her consent, her parents thought it would be a good idea to send her abroad for a couple of years, mostly because she wants to see the world but also because they thought that a change of scenery would do her some wonders. They would all decide on Milford-Gaudier Academy all the way over in Jersey City. After all, not only was it across the river from the hustle and bustle of New York City but Jersey City was a big city in itself with the opportunity for her to have a few adventures as well.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 21/10/2002 (or 10/21/2002 if you prefer)
Hometown: Auckland, New Zealand (even though she was raised in a different part of NZ, she still considers herself to be an Aucklander)
Personality: On the surface, Erin seems to be a pretty laidback and chill sort of girl. She does snark a fair amount, but not to a great extent and, when she does, it's usually affectionate and playful. However, in the rare event she does get angry, it's generally recommended to stay out of her way. With all of that being said, inside she's actually quite neurotic, worrying if something she's done or said would make people not like her or anything like that.
Sexual Orientation: Lesbian. She has had one heterosexual encounter, which was a kiss with her then-girlfriend's older brother, just to see what she what she thought of it. It wasn't something to try again.
Likes: Industrial music (especially electro-industrial and electronic body music), pizza, rugby union (especially the All Blacks and the [Auckland] Blues), coffee, wine (especially merlots and sauvignon blancs), comic books (with 2000 AD being one of her favourites), anything cyberpunk and cats. Also soccer to a lesser extent, although she doesn't really follow any teams other than the NZ national team. She's also a fan of RWBY (and Rooster Teeth in general, though she doesn't watch their gaming stuff as much as she used to), with Blake [Belladonna] being her favourite character.
Dislikes: She doesn't have that many dislikes due to her generally laidback nature. However she's not fond of beer or soda (and, indeed, anything fizzy), although that's more because, in her words, it makes her "burp heaps". She doesn't care much for bees and she doesn't really people who try to push their views onto others; arguing them in a respectful manner is fine with her but trying to force people to agree is a no-no. She's also not fond of being called "Australian", for obvious reasons, although the only thing she'll do is correct whoever said it and maybe joke about it. And, being a KMFDM fan, it's probably not a good idea to bring up Columbine.
Skills: She's quite a good bassist, having played it for 5-6 years and even being in a band with her brother and one of his friends at one stage. She knows a bit of German, as a few of her favourite bands sing in the language. And she's also good with knots.
Disorders/Handicaps: Despite her cool exterior she's actually quite neurotic inside, although don't expect her to talk about it unless she's very close to someone. She's also a chronic insomniac and there have even been nights where she just couldn't get any sleep. She is also a vegetarian, albeit an ovo-lacto one (meaning she'll happily eat and drink anything with eggs and/or dairy in it).
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: Despite her laidback personality, she does have a few fears that doesn't count as part of her neuroticism. Namely a fear of bees due to a bad experience when she was seven, as well as a slight fear of rejection. Also, due to the fact that Samoans tend to be very religious, she's afraid of her family (with the sole exception of her brother Graham, who knows and supports her) finding out about her sexuality and her atheism.

Wishes: She doesn't really have a main wish per se, just loads of small side-wishes, the main two being "find a girlfriend" and "try to form a band".

Goals: To become a famous bassist in a band, whether it be in the States or back home in New Zealand.
Distinguishing Marks:
Voice: Pretty much this. Or this if you just want to hear her talk.
Other: Unlike my other characters, she doesn't drive. She has a habit of ending her texts with "- Rin", even if the other person knows who it's coming from. While she doesn't believe in the existence of God or any of the fantastical elements of the Bible, she still respects Jesus and thinks that he gives out some good advice. The only time she'll wear shoes are formal events (i.e. school dances), church or PE; the rest of the time she'll either be barefoot or wearing combat boots, as she finds them comfier. And, despite being a vegetarian, the only salads she'll eat are coleslaw, fruit salad, any vegetarian pasta salads and a little bit of potato salad.

Well, I mean, plans are just plans, after all. The 8th of February is best as it is a Friday and 20:00 UTC is best as it is also available for most other people in other timezones. 15:00 for EST and about 12:00 PST. Along with being 8:00 in East Asia. However, I believe we could make further improvements by doing it on the 9th of February, 22:00 UTC, as those in East Asia will have ample time to wake up, those in the USA and such will be doing it in the afternoon and us Brits will be doing it early night. Some Europeans might have problems with this, but I mean, you win some you lose some.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Erin Sarenda
Role: Student
Appearance:
(Image)
(Image)

OK, not really an exact likeness but pretty much the closest to what I had in mind. So just imagine Jasmine Pereira, seen above, with black hair and you've pretty much got Erin.

Height and Weight: 5' 6" and 137lb
Short-bio: Erin Katherine Sarenda was born in Auckland, New Zealand on October 21st, 2000. When she was 4 years old, she, her parents and her three older brothers - Dan, Gregor and Graham (or Gray as people call him for short) - left Auckland and moved to Snells Beach, a small town 66km north of the city; a year after the move, her younger brother Terry was born. And, from then until she was ten, she didn't really lead an eventful life. She never really played with dolls when she was younger, instead tossing them aside and playing with her brothers' Action Man figures. She took up football (soccer) when she was eight and probably would've gone into it had she not gotten into music. And there was a bad experience she had with a load of bees that one time when she was seven, but don't expect her to bring it up.

When she was 10 years old, she started getting into metal, listening to her brother Graham's albums, namely Godflesh and Rammstein. After constantly pestering her parents into getting a guitar, she eventually got a bass guitar for her 11th birthday. This not only inspired her to take up music as a potential career but it also kickstarted her interest in industrial music, where she tried looking up more bands that play in that style. This lead to her discovering bands like Chemlab, KMFDM, Ministry and Cubanate, which culminated in her discovering industrial dance music and, with that, the rivethead subculture.

Eventually, with her consent, her parents thought it would be a good idea to send her abroad for a couple of years, mostly because she wants to see the world but also because they thought that a change of scenery would do her some wonders. They would all decide on Milford-Gaudier Academy all the way over in Jersey City. After all, not only was it across the river from the hustle and bustle of New York City but Jersey City was a big city in itself with the opportunity for her to have a few adventures as well.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 21/10/2002 (or 10/21/2002 if you prefer)
Hometown: Auckland, New Zealand (even though she was raised in a different part of NZ, she still considers herself to be an Aucklander)
Personality: On the surface, Erin seems to be a pretty laidback and chill sort of girl. She does snark a fair amount, but not to a great extent and, when she does, it's usually affectionate and playful. However, in the rare event she does get angry, it's generally recommended to stay out of her way. With all of that being said, inside she's actually quite neurotic, worrying if something she's done or said would make people not like her or anything like that.
Sexual Orientation: Lesbian. She has had one heterosexual encounter, which was a kiss with her then-girlfriend's older brother, just to see what she what she thought of it. It wasn't something to try again.
Likes: Industrial music (especially electro-industrial and electronic body music), pizza, rugby union (especially the All Blacks and the [Auckland] Blues), coffee, wine (especially merlots and sauvignon blancs), comic books (with 2000 AD being one of her favourites), anything cyberpunk and cats. Also soccer to a lesser extent, although she doesn't really follow any teams other than the NZ national team. She's also a fan of RWBY (and Rooster Teeth in general, though she doesn't watch their gaming stuff as much as she used to), with Blake [Belladonna] being her favourite character.
Dislikes: She doesn't have that many dislikes due to her generally laidback nature. However she's not fond of beer or soda (and, indeed, anything fizzy), although that's more because, in her words, it makes her "burp heaps". She doesn't care much for bees and she doesn't really people who try to push their views onto others; arguing them in a respectful manner is fine with her but trying to force people to agree is a no-no. She's also not fond of being called "Australian", for obvious reasons, although the only thing she'll do is correct whoever said it and maybe joke about it. And, being a KMFDM fan, it's probably not a good idea to bring up Columbine.
Skills: She's quite a good bassist, having played it for 5-6 years and even being in a band with her brother and one of his friends at one stage. She knows a bit of German, as a few of her favourite bands sing in the language. And she's also good with knots.
Disorders/Handicaps: Despite her cool exterior she's actually quite neurotic inside, although don't expect her to talk about it unless she's very close to someone. She's also a chronic insomniac and there have even been nights where she just couldn't get any sleep. She is also a vegetarian, albeit an ovo-lacto one (meaning she'll happily eat and drink anything with eggs and/or dairy in it).
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: Despite her laidback personality, she does have a few fears that doesn't count as part of her neuroticism. Namely a fear of bees due to a bad experience when she was seven, as well as a slight fear of rejection. Also, due to the fact that Samoans tend to be very religious, she's afraid of her family (with the sole exception of her brother Graham, who knows and supports her) finding out about her sexuality and her atheism.

Wishes: She doesn't really have a main wish per se, just loads of small side-wishes, the main two being "find a girlfriend" and "try to form a band".

Goals: To become a famous bassist in a band, whether it be in the States or back home in New Zealand.
Distinguishing Marks:
Voice: Pretty much this. Or this if you just want to hear her talk.
Other: Unlike my other characters, she doesn't drive. She has a habit of ending her texts with "- Rin", even if the other person knows who it's coming from. While she doesn't believe in the existence of God or any of the fantastical elements of the Bible, she still respects Jesus and thinks that he gives out some good advice. The only time she'll wear shoes are formal events (i.e. school dances), church or PE; the rest of the time she'll either be barefoot or wearing combat boots, as she finds them comfier. And, despite being a vegetarian, the only salads she'll eat are coleslaw, fruit salad, any vegetarian pasta salads and a little bit of potato salad.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Peter Kowalski
Role: Student
Appearance:
(Image)(Image)(Image)

Yes, I know that a junior that already has facial hair might seem a bit off but a) I knew a kid in my last year of secondary school (which would make us all 15-16) who was already growing a moustache and b) having used him for quite a while I honestly find it hard to imagine Peter Kowalski without his trademark stubble (even though Aaron Ekblad, his FC, has already grown a full-on beard).

Height and Weight: 6' 1" (185cm) and 177lb (80.3kg)
Short-bio: Peter Wayne Kowalski was born in Roncesvalles, Toronto, ON on September 22nd, 2002. The youngest of Douglas Kowalski and Béatrice Levasseur (since Quebecois women don't take their husband's name when they get married), he has two older brothers (Matt and Mike, both of whom were born on January 3rd, 1999). And, while Matt and Mike settled into school alright, Peter was mainly quiet and preferred to hang around in the background. Although more of the same happened in middle school, he at least tried to be a bit more sociable in high school, seeing as his mother was a science teacher there. Eventually, his parents decided that it would be a good idea to try a boarding school, as it would usually require him to share a room with at least one person. Thanks to a combination of his dad getting a pay rise to afford it and his company helping them fund a new computer lab over there, Peter was able to get into Milford-Gaudier Academy. Now living south of the border for the next year, it's just a question of whether he can keep his sanity, make at least one friend (mostly to get his parents off his back) and try and avoid in getting caught up in any unnecessary drama.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: 22/09/2002 (or 09/22/2002)
Hometown: Toronto, ON, Canada
Personality: To put it bluntly, Peter's a bit of a loner, albeit one by choice. As a result, he tends to be quiet, slightly reserved and, most of the time, you won't know he's there. However, that isn't a major problem to him because he enjoys being by himself, gives him time to think. In fact, it only becomes a problem if you keep trying to socialise with him even when it's clear that he doesn't want to talk. You could argue that would make him a bit of a jerk, although he won't do anything malicious and, if provoked, he would either say a snide remark or just call you out on it; when you push him too far, he would challenge you to a cooking duel, a free throwing contest or, in really rare circumstances, a fight. He also has a tendency to swear in Quebecois, although he is trying to cut down on it. He also gives people outside of whatever his small circle of friends will be nicknames, although it's not out of malice but rather because a) he's not really that good with remembering names and b) he doesn't really imagine that he'll talk to them a lot.

However, there are moments where he can be sociable under his own free will. For example, if someone he's talking to for the first time starts the conversation then he'll carry it on normally; however, it doesn't really work the other way around. Apart from that, he's very close to his family and gets along very well with them, often messaging his relatives every day just to let them know how he is (especially since he sadly can't join them for Thanksgiving). And, if you're on his good side, then he's the most loyal friend you can have.

Apart from that, he's normally a straight B student. Not because it doesn't really interest him but because it keeps him out of the limelight and stops him getting extra unwanted attention, meaning that he can still keep to himself. But, if there's anything he likes doing, he'll put plenty of effort and passion into it. In other words, he's a bit Brilliant, but Lazy.
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Likes: Hockey; basketball; cooking; cooking shows, his favourite being Iron Chef; poutine, which is not only his specialty but also his favourite food; donuts (especially Tim Hortons); tea, both ice and regular; macaroni and cheese (bonus points if it's Kraft Dinner); Winter; Rick and Morty, his favourite TV show; wrestling (with his top five being Mick Foley, Lance Storm, Dean Ambrose, Daniel Bryan and, of course, his older brother Matt who got him into it); Toronto Blue Jays; and, of course...

Favourite East Coast Rappers: Nas; Biggie; Beastie Boys; Jay Z; Wu-Tang Clan; Immortal Technique; El-P (whether it be solo stuff, Company Flow, Run the Jewels or anything else); Mos Def (or Yasiin Bey as he could technically be called); Big L; KRS-One; Gang Starr; Public Enemy; Run DMC; Big Pun
Favourite West Coast Rappers: Earl Sweatshirt; Snoop Dogg; Tupac; NWA (although he's not a big fan of Eazy-E and, apart from a few exceptions, Ice Cube post-The Predator); Ice-T; DJ Quik; Kendrick Lamar; Nate Dogg; clipping.; E-40
Other music he likes: Outkast (his favourite); Frank Ocean; Common; Billie Holliday; Geto Boys; Kanye West (although he hates Yeezus, isn't that big on The Life of Pablo and thinks FourFiveSeconds is the worst song he ever did); UGK; Blackstreet; J. Cole; Lil Jon (more a guilty pleasure, though)

Dislikes: Coffee; rock music (yes, including The Tragically Hip); metal; both Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor (so, obviously, he won't like that Marvin Gaye song); football (both American, Canadian and soccer); dubstep; smoking; drugs; jocks; being around people for too long; mumble rap (namely Future and Young Thug); Cleveland Cavaliers, even though LeBron's no longer on the team; Golden State Warriors; NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman (although to be fair not a lot of Canadians like him); being touched (although friends, family and those with a good reason are the only exceptions). Also politics, to a lesser extent. He's also not fond of the Arizona Coyotes, although it's less due to the team but more thanks to the NHL (Gary Bettman in particular) and their owners doing whatever it takes to keep the franchise there even though they should've moved out a long time ago. And, as he's part French Canadian, a good way to irk him is to pronounce crème fraîche as "creem freesh"; he doesn't really get mad (unless you repeat it), he'll just correct you with the correct pronunciation, "krem fresh".
Skills: He's very good at basketball, having played it about every day for about ten years. And, even though I don't know if he'll be able to show it off unless someone pushes him that far, he's an excellent cook, with poutine being his specialty. And he's also aware of the fourth wall but he prefers to use aside glances and the occasional comment.
Disorders/Handicaps: Much like his father, Peter has Asperger's Syndrome, though fortunately he's high functioning and can handle himself most of the time, though it's still recommended to have someone keep an eye on him every once in a while. He's also allergic to coconuts.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: He's afraid of letting people down, which is probably one explanation as to why he's so introverted and why he tries to be average; afraid of getting ill, although it doesn't get to the point where he thinks he's dying just because he coughed; and he's afraid of mice and rats, mostly out of fear of contamination. He also doesn't like large groups of people, but it's more a dislike than a fear.

Wishes: He doesn't really have that many wishes, really. Maybe get through high school without any serious problems. Getting a girlfriend or any friends might be a bonus, but that's more of a side-wish.

Goals: His main goal is to either go to a good culinary school or apprentice under a good chef, so he can perfect his art and fulfil his lifelong dream of becoming a chef. Bonus points if it's one in Canada.
Distinguishing Marks: His stubble, which makes him look older than he really is.
Voice: Not exactly a Torontonian accent (as Aaron Ekblad was born in Windsor but grew up in Belle River), but here's what he sounds like.
Other: Drives around in a 1994 Dodge Shadow, although it's had a few moderations (namely a new stereo so Peter can plug his iPod into it). Almost always wears a beige field jacket, a shirt related to his likes, blue or black jeans, black and grey socks and a pair of Converse One Star trainers, though he has been known to wear hockey jerseys from time to time. He very rarely drinks but still uses alcoholic beverages in recipes, such as beer batter or a red wine sauce. And, other than coleslaw, he doesn't really like salads although he's still happily make them, including a quite good potato salad.

Fortunately, I don't anticipate things heating up too fast for anyone to miss out on much that would, thus, keep themselves from getting involved henceforth; however it's noted, and I think the working plan happens to suggest a similar time around the weekend for the present targeted timeline.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: James (Jimmy) Henry Barrow
Role: Student
Appearance:
Image

Image

Height and Weight: 6'0", 172 lbs
Short-bio: Jimmy was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, but his mother and father moved to Burkburnett Texas when he was two years old. They were poor, but not poverty stricken, and they lived a comfortable if cramped life. He did wear a lot of hand me down clothes however, but he didn't care much. His father left when he was young, using the classic excuse of "Im heading out for some cigarettes," and then he never returned. When Jimmy got older, he found it kind of funny that his father had become a stereotype. He became friends with another boy from town when he was young, a native american boy named Joseph, who's family farmed sheep outside of town. The two were inseparable, and made an unceasing ruckus from the time they were old enough to walk and onward. Both frequently were in trouble at school, and often were known for getting into fistfights.

When Jimmy was young, he began to play guitar, and fell in love with the instrument. He loved old country music, and as he listened his interest grew to encompass all music in general. There was really nothing he didnt like, but he was particularly focused on country, bluegrass and Americana music. He felt it fit him well, and the stories of life in american resonated for a young man growing up in the Texas plains. In his music, he saw himself, and developed a dream of becoming a country singer one day. He fell in love with a musician named Joe Fletcher in particular, who was known by practically no one but who Jimmy thought was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

When Jimmy was 16, he became the first in his grade to get a car, a shitty old For Bronco that he spent the following summer restoring with all the money he could spare from his paychecks. In the end, it turned out looking like a prop from a movie, just a little scruffy, but with the patched together charm of something deeply loved. However, when it came to cars, Jimmy was beat by Joseph, who spent a year trading up cars until he was able to buy and original 1988 Camaro IROC. To say that Jimmy was jealous would be an understatement, but Joseph made up for it by frequently taking Jimmy with him, the two boys riding around town and listening to music as they tried to pick up girls. Joseph was often more successful, being attractive, owning a cool car, and having the added mystique of being the only native american boy in town the same age as any girls. Jimmy however, despite his often goofy and wild personality did meet someone, a girl named Emma. After an odd first few months of knowing each other, their relationship grew stronger, going from being friends to. . . something more. But, they were a good match, and Jimmy always loved how she would tell him he was like a puppy, or run her hands through his hair.

Jimmy however, though smart, had an incredibly hard time paying attention. He got awful grades, due to his tendency to not show up and spend his time driving around town, smoking weed and drinking beer with his buddies, or playing guitar. His teachers always admonished him for this, saying that he had a clear intelligence, but that they just didn't know what to do with him. He had been held back before in eighth grade, and as his Sophomore year in high school came to a close, he knew he wouldn't be able to make it in Junior year. He dropped out briefly and began to work, doing prep in a local restaurant. However, he was bored, and knew in his head he was to smart to be a dropout. It invigorated him to try and figure something out, and at his mothers behest, he got in touch with an aunt. While his immediate family was poor, his mothers extended family was more middle class, but her sister was something else. She was a kind of rich Jimmy couldnt even fathom, having gone to Milford-Gaudier on a scholarship and marrying a New Orleans lawyer. Jimmy called her, and asked her for help. She agreed to help Jimmy, and told him she would pull as many strings as she could to get him medication, and back in school. He packed up his old Bronco, hugged Joseph and kissed Emma goodbye, promising to stay in touch, before driving East to New Orleans.

His aunt, he found, was a piece of shit. She was vain and shallow, and was far to caught up in ridiculous drama with the other rich ladies at her country club. Her life reminded him of his old high school, and he quickly found himself being carted around by his aunt while she helped him get into Milford-Gaudier, and he was shown off like a prize show pony. His aunt seemed determined to use him as an example of how much more virtuous and kind she was than her peer's, like he was a poor uneducated bumpkin in need of saving by his virtuous savior. Jimmy hated her, but was smart enough to recognize her uses, and took a perverse pleasure in playing his guitar to annoy her. She hated the music he loved, and complained whenever he would play his favorite songs. He acted nice, but he knew it bothered her, and so he kept it up until everything was squared away. He had been diagnosed with ADHD, given medication, and his aunt had managed to secure him a place at Milford-Gaudier. His two older cousins, Chip and Lily had both gone as well, and made sure to tell him that he wouldn't fit in there if he kept on wearing boots and playing the kind of music he played. He ignored them however, knowing that they meant no insult and were just trying to look out for their cousin. Finally, he was flown up to JFK International with his aunt and uncle, and signed in as an eighteen year old Junior at Milford-Gaudier Academy. It was beautiful, fancy and rich, and Jimmy felt out of place. But, it was one of the best private schools in the nations, and Jimmy couldn't get over the feeling that he had done pretty well for a poor trailer park kid from Texas.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: September 12th, 2001
Hometown: Burkburnett, Texas.
Personality: Charming, friendly and adventurous, Jimmy is a true lover of life. He is used to being a bit of an outsider, something that he is both comfortable and a little proud of. He has a strong sense of right and wrong as well, and is not afraid to tell you so or fight you about it. He loves just driving around a listening to music more than most other things, and is all in all a friendly, easygoing and loyal friend. Once your in his good graces, he will always have your back.
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Likes: Music, cars, the country, his guitar.
Dislikes: Bullies, big cities, crowded places, rudeness.
Skills: Jimmy is fairly knowledgeable about cars, and likes to work on them. However, he is an exceptionally talented guitar player, and dreams of one day becoming a country musician.
Disorders/Handicaps: ADHD.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: Needles, tornado's, forests at night. Wishes: to own a Stetson, to marry Emma one day, make sure his mother wasn't poor anymore. Goals: To become a successful country singer.
Distinguishing Marks: Jimmy has a scar over his right eyebrow, and a bad stick and poke tattoo on his left thumb. (It says
Voice: Jimmy's voice is of a medium timbre, and he speaks with a soft southern accent. Emma always told him it was very warm and pleasant, like a campfire. He liked that. Here's a sample of how he sounds when he sings, as well as his guitar talent (Late July - Shakey Graves. His voice has more of a twang to it when he speaks though.)
Other: Hates salad. Prefers fruit any day of the week.

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Claudia Steinfeld
Role: Student
Appearance:
ImageImageImage

Height and Weight: 5'6" and 128 pounds
Short-bio: Claudia was born into a privileged lifestyle, as her parents had been successful from an early age, as they had all gotten successful degrees in their respective career paths. As she grew up, they had just become even more successful. Her mother was a CEO of a fairly big, mostly local business, and her dad was a highly successful New York City lawyer. So as you can expect, there wasn't much suffering in the income department. In fact, this led to her getting a lot of the most expensive stuff, in clothes and phones alike. While she didn't tend to entirely let it get to her head, she was a little out of touch at times. She wants to understand, though, she just comes off as kind of out of the loop at how poorly off some people are, because she's never had any issues with stuff like buying $100 to $1,000 clothes items, or getting the latest IPhone or IPad. However, she was never a spoiled rich brat. She never really gave her money to others, except friends, but she didn't act rich and spoiled and nagged her parents for everything. She asked, sure, but they never overly spoiled her in ridiculous ways. And they taught her valuable life lessons. She had a good business sense like her mom, (Edit). And she developed her own dreams at a very young age, that being fashion design and model. Her parents jobs would definitely help, so she got a lot of advice from them on how to work towards potentially running a business. She studied hard in the things that she cared about that would help her get to these goals, though fell behind in the things that she cared less about.

Because of her parents money, they had managed to get their daughter into some modeling at a young age, for some local stuff, because she wanted to. She still does stuff for some local magazines and business advertisements to this day, and that's somewhat why she has as much clothes as she does, because a lot of it was given to her for her work. This had made her a decent sum of money for her own work in her own life, for herself, so she was able to pay for herself to some degree. And she rather enjoyed it, though she dreamed about being the designers of said clothes, and not just the model for them.

Of course, on top of this, her family also lived in a rather nice apartment, It had always been high living in that department, her parents having expensive cars, and their apartment in general being expensive with expensive furniture. Though it wasn't so ridiculously out there like some of those super rich houses, but it was rather nice nonetheless. Claudia missed it at times, but was happy where she was as well. And its not like she didn't regularly get to see it.

Her parents had always focused on giving her the best of educations that money could buy, but when she turned 14, they had decided, and with her own suggestions of it, that she went to a boarding school. One reason was her family was always busy, so they thought it best. That said, her parents visit her regularly, and her them, when they can. Her parents of course helped with that whole part of presumably paying for boarding and all that. And so, now she was here, going on her 3rd year at the school, excited for what the new year would bring into her life. Crazy parties? Getting a boyfriend? Drama? Who knows, but she was ready.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: August 21st, 2003
Hometown: Brooklyn, New York
Personality: Claudia tends to be a little bit of a quirky character. Not blatantly so like some people, but its there nonetheless. She has always been rather sociable, too, seeming to do well with groups of friends. Like, she prefers to hang out with people and groups of friends over any sort of isolation. So presumably, she just knows a lot of people here that she hangs out with, even if simply as background characters, as this is her 3rd year here and there is no way she would have gone 2 years without getting to know people. Seems to generally be a friendly sort, too. Maybe not overly so, but friendly nonetheless. Always rather fashionable, seemingly making personality statements, so to speak, with her styles of the day. Which change pretty much every day. While nice, does seem to fall into the whole crowd of big groups of friends sometimes, and does seem to get amusement at the suspense of others sometimes. Usually when they legitimately deserve it, though, but still not always the nicest thing. Isn't a fan of actual bullying in general, though. More gets amusement out of bullies sometimes getting what they deserve, or at people "trying too hard", sometimes involving trying to impress her. Has an ambitious personality, though doesn't seem to worry about working your ass off, either. Though she does plan to put a lot of effort into her dreams. Rarely gets outright angry, more annoyed then anything. Has romantic interests, and would someday like to have a boyfriend, get married, and maybe someday have kids and all that, but doesn't really go out of her way to find anyone, preferring it to happen naturally. Could probably be flirty when she wants to be, but doesn't go out of her way for it and would likely more leave it to flirtatious interactions with a boyfriend. Likes to party, though isn't really a fan of those big teen parties where everyone gets wasted and does stupid shit, preferring other types of parties. Doesn't mean she might not go to one to experience it, though.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual, and likely a bit of homosexuality, though not a ton. Its more that she's sexually attracted to boys, but can find girls physically attractive pretty easily. Just might not so much want intimate relationships with them. Doesn't rule out experimentation, probably.
Likes: Fashion, fashion designing, jewelry, makeup, good cleaning products, modeling, history, literature, writing, language in general, grammar, French, experiencing different cultures, varied high end foods, fashion shows, fashion magazines, celebrities, business culture, management, parties, dance music, some pop music (Mostly synthpop), particular types of hip-hop, her parents, friends, shopping, malls, money, plays, various types of shows in general, ect.
Dislikes: Egotistical people, and braggers. People that tell you your dream isn't doable because they couldn't do it themselves, major bullies, quitters, trolls, poorly run businesses, metal, most rock, celebrity tabloids (At least the extremely terrible ones)mood killers, drama queens, science, math, ect.
Skills: 1.Is rather good at knowing, and learning history, it seeming to stay in her mind quite well. She probably knows random history related stuff.
2.Is also good at English and Literature and all that sort of thing. Her grammar is good because of that, and she can be well spoken and might write some books too.
3.Has a knack for being good at picking fashion. She can pick what works well for herself, and others alike, and if someone wants help with that, she will help
4.Very good at speaking French, which makes her happy because she always liked the sound of the French language (And no, not Canadian French, though she'd probably try to learn if offered)
5.Good at modeling, too, as she had done a lot of practice with all the "moves" you have to make for modeling, or photo shoots to model some clothes.
Disorders/Handicaps: Nothing super defining, though I'm sure there is something because everyone has something.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: A slight fear of heights (though oddly not in planes), slight fear of wild animals, depending on what they are. Slight fear of isolation, due to her social behavior, and a slight fear of spiders. A slight fear of dentists. Slight fear of firearms, though isn't against trying them someday. Slight fear of being out of mobile phone contact. Slight few of ever needing to be medicated for something, because she knows drugs can be addicting. And a fear of failure is her most prominent one.
Wishes: Get married, though everything in goals is a bigger priority than marriage. But she wouldn't really mind adding on marriage someday. That the world can live in harmony together, as she see's a clash of cultures creating some amazing things (even if it inevitably causes problems, too). Its not that she's some peace loving hippy, but she loves to see cultures collide and make something amazing, and in her mind, who the hell doesn't want to try other cultures amazing foods? Probably others.
Goals: Become as successful as her parents are, if not more so. Open up her own fashion line someday. Maybe open up her own modeling business in general. Try to become the best that she can be. Go to college and graduate with some good degrees.
Distinguishing Marks: Not really distinguishing so to speak, but she does have pierced ears. Oftentimes wears some form of jewelry, too. Besides that, nothing really super noteworthy that's visible.
Voice: Chloe Grace Moretz
Other: Snippet of her music taste: Rocket League Soundtrack, Lorde, Chvrches, Depeche Mode, Grimes, New Order, Purity Ring, The Knife, iamamiwhoami, t.A.T.u, Milkywhale, Daniel Avery, Jon Hopkins, Moderat, Modeselektor, Solar Fields, Crypt of the Necrodancer Soundtrack, Furi Soundtrack, Robot Roller Derpy Disco Dodgeball Soundtrack, Goldfrapp, Let's Eat Grandma, and so on and so forth.
Snippet of her style: This, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and this
Has a Tesla Model S P100D that her parents got her for her 16th birthday.
Some pictures of her parents home. Her parents have a 3 bedroom, 3 bath home. 1 bedroom for the parents, 1 bedroom for the daughter, and one guest bedroom. Parents and daughter get their own bathroom while the 3rd one is the whole houses bathroom. Both the parents bedroom and the daughters bedroom have a walk in closet.

3 of 6

REQUIRED INFORMATION
Name: Lyanna Chambers
Role: Student
Appearance:
ImageImageImage

Height and Weight: 5'7", 125 pounds, a little on the skinny side if anything, but generally average.
Short-bio: Honestly, there is really not that much to say about her life. While personality wise, she is a strange one, as her life goes, its been rather uneventful. She was born in Portland, Oregon, and then eventually her parents decided to move to the east coast, all the way over in the New York City area, though in the outskirts because the city itself was so expensive. And really, beyond that, it was simply going on about her life. Somehow she has managed to not get herself into too much trouble, though she has gotten in trouble a few times. Mostly others that she got involved with did, though, like the bullies back when she was young. But she has taken things a bit too far in the past nonetheless, or just got in trouble because of, well, being kind of scandalous at times.

Seems to have a fascination with combat. Not so much to join the military or something, but she likes swords, kung-fu, boxing, and various other forms of hand to hand combat or sword fighting. She has done some fencing classes in the past, but for obvious reasons, she did not take the sword with her. However, it is at home, which isn't all that far away from school, so she could, and probably will, partake in such a thing again in the future. She is also new to this school, as it was this year that her and her parents had decided to give it a try. You would think that she would have been here for years, but not really. This might not actually go all too well, having her in a private school environment instead of a public school environment, but nonetheless, here she was.

Also seems to have an obsession with tech, and loves to read up on new tech news and such like that. Probably would be the sort to experiment with augments when they ever become a thing. This also goes over into her own life, and she has stuff like an HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and so on. Just various weird tech gadgets. This also lead to her knowing a lot about tech in general, and computers, seeming to be good with them all. On top of it all, she did get lead to, well, less savory things, like hacking, but she doesn't really utilize it much, just thought that it would be a cool thing to learn how to do. And who knows. Maybe it WOULD find some practical use someday.

And besides that, pretty much everything else about her was covered. She is rather basic in the history sense, but a little more bizarre and interesting in pretty much everything else.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTED INFORMATION
Birthday: September 23rd, 2002
Hometown: Portland, Oregon, United States
Personality: Lyanna seems to be a bit of an odd one. Not majorly so like some people, but she has some weird social behaviors, and makes weird jokes and comments at random. She's not really rude, most of the time, but she's not really afraid to call someone an asshole if they are one. She seems to pretty openly stand up to people being bullied, and not really afraid to go full on attack mode on a bully if they end up being too much trouble. Pretty openly swears, but the way that she does it, and some of the insults that pop into her head at random are...rather interesting. Seems to have random odd moments where she just like, high fives people enthusiastically if they want to, or gives them a fist bump. While not seeming overly cheery a lot of the time, or down for that matter, she does seem to get "hyped up" a lot at random sometimes. Seems to become rather stubborn at times, for better or worse depending on the situation. Is a bit of an adventurous sort, and just like before, for better or worse, as that can go bad sometimes. Isn't a fan of taking anyone's shit, so she usually expresses her distaste for anyone being a pain in the ass. Has odd behavioral traits in general, which can come off as annoying to others, or make them uncomfortable. Acts rather "improper" a lot in general, and rather inappropriate. Not entirely in the sexual sense, as she's pretty mild sexually in some sense. She does seem to have moments of just kissing people, or sometimes even make out, but the relationships seem to always be a short term thing on impulse at random, and oftentimes she barely knows them and they don't last any longer than a couple of days of just, well, kissing. Never anything beyond that, though. So it all just comes off as rather...off and bizarre how she approaches lots of it. Does seem to like to party sometimes, but also isn't always into the whole full on crazy party stuff, and doesn't even really drink or do drugs or any of that sort of thing. Just parties. Overall, though, she does seem to generally be caring, and would fight rather hard for any friends of hers, she's just a little...odd and all over the place.
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual, with a slight lean towards a preference of males.
Likes: Technology, technological advancements, hacking, investigating weird stuff she reads about, doing research, sword fighting, kung-fu, hand-to-hand combat, boxing to an extent, robots, A.I., random weird gadgets, boys, girls, oddities, kissing, vegetables, combat history, military history, history in general to some degree, science, ect.
Dislikes: Bullies (Has kicked them in the nuts in the past), anyone who has a superior complex, anyone overly rude really, people who are clueless about technology (just frustrates her), computer viruses, needy people, thirsty people (You know, THOSE people), most fruits, politics, politicians, government a lot of the time, English, ect
Skills: 1.Seems to have investigative skills, oddly enough, and does seem to enjoy it. Be it, say, in a situation where they need to dig up information on a location, she seems oddly good at that.
2.Has some hacking abilities, though doesn't tend to actually use it for much. But they're there...
3.Computer and tech knowledge in general it seems
4.Seems to have some basic self defense knowledge, and is still learning more.
5.Basic skills in sword fighting.
Disorders/Handicaps: If anything, maybe ADD, but probably not a major case of it. But its there. Besides that, she does seem to have some behavioral issues, where she doesn't exactly behave appropriately like she probably should be in some social situations, coming off as rather awkward, inappropriate, and so on because of it.
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Fears: A fear of heights, which doesn't seem major but does bother her. Same with a fear of flying. And a fear of water, which also doesn't seem major but does unsettle her. Seems to have a fear of making big life decisions, or big decisions in general. Seems to have a fear of commitment to...well, anything really, be it a relationship, a career, or some hobby. Seems to have a slight fear of actual sexual intercourse, despite her personality traits, pushing anyone away if they ended up wanting to go that far. Slight fear of loneliness. Seems to also have a fear of dying, but oddly at the same time doesn't seem to terribly care if she died early. But when faced with it directly? That's a different story. Bit of a fear of the new, like going to a school. Probably a fear of medications a bit. A fear of actually falling in love with someone. Likely related to the fear of water, a fear of being in the sea or on the sea. Also has no interest in the whole childbirth thing, so that is probably part of her fear.
Wishes: Honestly, nothing in particular. Pretty much just to live her life.
Goals: Just to make it through high school without anything horribly going wrong, really.
Distinguishing Marks: Nothing particularly noteworthy.
Voice: Lily Loveless, but probably less of a British accent.
Other: Snipper of Music Taste: Gorillaz when they're hip-hop, Run the Jewels, Killer Mike, Eminem, OutKast, Clipping, El-P, Kendrick Lamar, Dalek, Death Grips, Aesop Rock, Busdriver, Danny Brown, Shabazz Palaces, Kanye West, ect.
Snipper of Style: this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and weird shit like this being more common for her.

Thanks. Also, I don't mind which rooms Peter and Erin are in, so feel free to stick them in anywhere. And, as previously mentioned, Veikko's living off-site so make sure you don't stick him in a dorm.

(Also I think I may have caused some confusion, I put his name in Chinese name order without thinking. His given name is Yixuan and surname/family name is Zhu)


On the one hand, four is an unlucky number in China so, if he was superstitious, I could imagine that Yixuan would have some reservations about being boarded in that room. On the other hand, it could lead to a funny moment or two where people would ask why he's so uncomfortable about a number of all things (again if he was superstitious).

That’s true actually, I hadn’t thought of that. I don’t see him being overtly superstitious, however having lived all his life in China where that idea is engrained would definitely have had an influence to the extent that he would be at least somewhat unsettled.

Yes, I'm looking over them now. I just happened to have a lot more of homework and studying than I had thought I would for tonight, but looking over them now.
