Well, I'll this a try. My concepts have changed from what is in my sig. I only have one idea I want to hang onto (I have other ideas I like, but I'mm saving them for Evo2).

Name: Annabelle Lee
Interests: Art, ballet (watching), history, nature, hiking, and classical music.
Appearance: She's 5'5" and weighs 120 lbs. Her hair is black and reaches half way down her back. She usually keeps it in a braid. Annabelle's facial features are sharp and her face is heart shaped. Annabelle's eyes are a light grey, her noes is small in width and length, her lips are pale and thin, and her skin is pale with a light amount of freckles on her face. She usually dresses nice. A blouse and a skit is the most casual thing she's been seen in by her classmates.

Bio: Annabelle was born to Bryce and Anna Lee on April, 12 1990. They owned an art gallery and raised their daughter with a love for the arts they loved. Annabelle's favorite arts were ballet, the painting's in her parent's gallery and classical music. When Annabelle was five she started talking about "hearing colors."

At first her parents dismissed this as an over active imagination, but in second grade a teacher told them to take her to be tested for ADD. After some testing Annabelle was diagnosed with Synesthesia. Synesthesia is a neurologically-based condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.

((Yeah, I quoted wiki on that. If and when I submit the real profile it won't happen.))

To be specific she has "Color Synesthesia" where different sounds will trigger different colors and shapes that will eventually fade from site. Annabelle and her parents decided to keep it a secret, and Annabelle learn to adapt and live with the Synesthesia. In school she usually keeps to herself, but is no means introverted. She doesn't got to any of the school events with crowds, and can make her way through the halls. She keeps a B average in school.

Her favorite subject in school is history, and she often imagines evens in history and what color they would sound like. She can also be found walking on some kind of nature trail for the lack of colors and sounds.

Advantages: She's fit from hiking, and she's made no enemies in school.
Disadvantages: The Synesthesia will be a problem. In the game a noisy situation could blind her. Also her lack of socializing will leave her lacking allies.
--------------

Okay, so that's what I got right now. Now I know writing a character with Synesthesia will be hard, but I love the idea to damn much for my own good.

Anyways, that's what I have.

Hasn't gone anywhere, really. He either switches between being a tennis playing class clown or a SI. I want him to be the former since SI never work out with me. If the former then he'll have daddy issues.

Caleb Matthews:
All I know is that he's either a football player, a basketball player, or an athlete of some kind. Takes like too srs for his own good, and is a good student. Is social, but is old fashioned. Considering making him some brand of christian.

Rereading Anna's concept I did go over bored on making it everything about her. I'll get on fixing that.

Also, xylophonefairy, do you mind if I pm you some questions about synthaesthesia when v5 pre-game gets closer?

@ Outfoxd

I love Leona, and think she's a great idea. It'd be cool to see what got into performing (must of read over the part about her grand-dad, my bad) and where her inspiration comes from (former magicians besides her grandpa).

Paulo is also interesting. I'd guess it'd be nice of any other activities he does. That could be said for Leo as well, but I understand that they will be more fleshed out by the time you submit a profile.

Okay, I've updated my concepts:

Posted Image
Marko Laine:

A tennis player who stands at 5'7. Has had a normal life, and is a 6th generation Finnish. Is kind of shy, and hangs out with the more eccentric and talkative people to keep the attention off him. Has and older sister, and had a standard family life until his father left which will probably happen at the start of pre game. Which gets him to start chain smoking (he was already smoking, and his sis was buying him the cigarettes), but he's able to stop himself from abusing other substances. He likes reading, and his favorite band is Matchbox 20.

Posted Image
Caleb Matthews:
He's a 5'10 football player who moved in freshman year. He was raised as a conservative Christian by his parents, but over the last few years their believes have gotten more liberal, and he's not sure how to react to this. May have a promise ring. Also has a soft spot for animals, and volunteers at the animal shelter when he can. I can picture him being a popular sexist jock too.

Posted Image
Annabelle Lee
She still has Synesthesia. For some reason I have it stuck in my head that she's an artist who sticks with drawing as her main form. Might be a drama student. I keep trying to flesh her out in my head, but I haven't gone too far with her.

Also, if we allow 4 character cap, Jessica Lik (Pronounced as: "Like"):
Standard bitchy popular girl who has a less then desirable relationship with her mother and takes put her angst as bitchiness on the other students. I'll reserve on fleshing her out until I know the cap.

Okay. So I've updated my concepts, again:

Posted Image
Marko Laine:

An ex-tennis player who stands at 5'5. Has had a normal life, and is a 6th generation Finnish. Is kind of shy, and hangs out with the more eccentric and talkative people to keep the attention off him. Has an older sister, and had a standard family life until his father left which will probably happen at the start of pre game. Which gets him to start chain smoking (he was already smoking, and his sis was buying him the cigarettes), but he's able to stop himself from abusing other substances. Tends to be introspective and philosophical when he's alone. Loves listening to music.

Posted Image
Caleb Matthews:
He's a 5'10 football player who moved in freshman year. He was raised as a conservative Christian by his parents, but over the last few years their believes have gotten more liberal, and he's not sure how to react to this. May have a promise ring. Also has a soft spot for animals, and volunteers at the animal shelter when he can. I can picture him being a popular sexist jock too. I'm also thinking of him either being in a chastity ring club, or starting it. What do you guys think?

The two I'm still deciding on:

Posted Image
Edith West
I decided to throw Annabelle out, but she still has Synesthesia. Edith was already built, so I took (I think it was Fan's advice) and applied Synesthesia to an already built concept. She practically lives on the internet since she got a computer for her birthday/christmas present one year. On the web she likes to troll, and this tends to cross over into her real life. These are mostly harmless tricks played on her friends, family, and students. She's 5'7 and weighs 210 pounds. When people make fun of her weight she fires back with an insult that goes further. Trying to goad the student into making a worse insult or just drop the issue.

Posted Image
Jessica Lik (Pronounced as: "Like"):
Standard bitchy popular girl who has a less then desirable relationship with her mother and takes put her angst as bitchiness on the other students. She was made for the bitchy popular girl group talked about in chat. I've considered making her bulimic (Which I will research, jsyk). She's on the track team track (she does okay) and is a pretty good student. She's 5'7 and weighs less than she should (too lazy to look up the bmi and what not).

Okay, I'm gonna work backwards:

LS: I approve of both. If I decide on Jessica maybe she could be Seth's girlfriend, if not an ex, and maybe Marko would hang around Revy since he hides behind more extraverted people. Plus, she could constantly bug him to join her band.

Doc: I guess her's won't be too strong. My research will get this straightened out before I get her profile written.

langit: The Felicia/Jessica relationship sounds perfect. Just know that I'm still deciding whether or not to include her.

Fri'Chickenisha: I like all of your ideas. Good luck with them. Especially the "What Not To Do" one. Looks hard.

Llama: Hiro seems like a good start. Can't wait to read the profile.

Doc (Characters): Like Kami said don't pick ages yet as we don't know the grade selected. In fact I agree with her questions, so I'll leave it there.

Deamon: Seems like a solid start. Some questions I have are: What stopped the bullying, or is it still going on? What got her started on drawing, when did she start, and what does she draw?

Rory: Can't wait to read him.

Kami: I like the idea of Lena, but one question I have is her place in the deaf community. Since she is hard of hearing she could have a place in there (at least with what I learned during my two years of ASL). I assume since she is an activist she has some involvement with it.

Over all I approve.

I'll edit in the other two after I read them.

Well, my sister's best friend was in a similar situation so I'll give this a try:

The grandparents would probably have a big hand in raising him if his parents still went to school after his birth, and even more so if they went to college. If both if them were committed to the child then he'd probably have both sets raising him. So he'd probably be closer to them than his parents depending on how often they could be around. Also, he probably would be lower income unless one of his grandparents were rich. That's as far as I'm willing to go, but if there's more clarification needed feel free to pm me.
