Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

Name: Clayton Leven
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Grade: 12th
School: Aurora High School
Hobbies and Interests: Reading, sketching interesting things, video games, drama club (tech)

Appearance: Clayton is a rather small man at 5'7 and 130 pounds, putting him below many of his peers in both height and build. He's fairly thin, but has some wiry muscle along his arms and legs. He keeps his blonde hair close cropped in a military style to keep it out of his small, tan eyes. He looks younger than his true age and always keeps himself clean shaven, which has led to some of his close friends (and some unaware adults) calling him "kid", jokingly or otherwise. While not unattractive, his unusually youthful appearance makes him seem somewhat childlike. Clayton has a very typical wardrobe of his age group: t-shirts and polo shirts in a variety of colors (mostly dulled to keep them from standing out too much), jeans and cargo shorts, and some khaki pants for formal events. At the time of the kidnapping he was wearing a light brown t-shirt reading "National Sarcasm Society: Like we need your support", light blue jeans, and white tennis shoes.

Biography: The Levens were always a fairly unassuming family: they came to the Seattle area some time in the 1960s from Oklahoma, making Clayton a second-generation resident of Washington. They were a strictly middle-class family, his father (Ted) being an accountant and his mother (Barbara) being a teacher at the local elementary school. The Levens currently live in Ted's parents' house, which they've owned since they moved to Seattle almost fifty years ago.

Clayton did well throughout elementary school under his mother's after-hours tutelage, and he began showing an interest in the arts and drawing. Clayton became an excellent artist by 9th grade, and seemed to be on the fast track to the University of Washington. He had dreams of becoming an artist and making millions off of his gallery displays, a dream that his parents encouraged. He was friendly and popular, and often sketched his friends for practice. He became an avid gamer, and any free time not spent on art became taken up by online shooters and Rock Band.

Unfortunately, the infamous recession not long after he entered high school put a major crimp in these plans. Mr. Leven was laid off; while he was able to recover his accounting job, he was working for a much smaller company that paid far less. With the sudden drop in income and the period of several months where Ted Leven remained unemployed, Clayton's family became morose and distraught. Their unhappiness rubbed off on Clayton, his happy home life being replaced with a monotony of school, homework, and sleep. The Levens replaced their vacations and camping trips with watching TV and going out to eat at cheap local restaurants.

When Mrs. Leven was laid off and unable to find a replacement job, Clayton's mood and will completely dropped. He lost interest in school, his grades slipping until he had finally lost his chance at a scholarship. He continued to hone his talents, but replaced large projects and art shows with filling his sketchbook with drawings of people and objects he saw in his day to day life. He sold off most of his games during a particularly hard stretch to give his family more grocery money, and he barely touches what he still owns. A bad attitude and moodiness surfaced, pushing away a number of his friends until he only had a few close ones left.

At the encouragement of his parents, he joined the school's drama club and put his talents to work helping design and make the backdrops and painting the sets. He's done some other minor tech work (like running the light board and handing off props backstage), but otherwise keeps his activities in the club to the artistic side. He's made some new friends and gotten back old ones by joining, which his parents are quite glad for.

Advantages: Clayton can hold his own against physical effort, and his small size makes him a difficult target and gives him an easier time when hiding or moving through small spaces. He has a sharp eye for detail and might notice something in a scene that other's don't.
Disadvantages: Clayton's bad attitude toward people later in high school has pushed some of his old friends away and led to some lack of trust between them. While not weak by any means, he's still small and can be easy to push around for someone larger. He has never once been in a fight in his life and has no weapon or combat-related skills beyond what he's learned from video games.

You mention in Clayton's advantages section that he's strong for his size. Is this from some kind of physical activity? I didn't notice it mentioned anywhere in his bio.

Fixed. Sorry, that was left over from an older idea that I forgot I had taken out.
