Name: Daniel Whitten
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Grade: 12
School: Aurora High School
Hobbies and Interests: Literature in all forms, metal, soccer, band.

Appearance: Daniel is rather tall and skinny, about 6''1 and 149 lbs. He's Caucasian, with light-colored skin, which is mostly blemish-free, with the exception of a small mole on his left cheek. He has bright green eyes. Daniel's face is somewhat round, and he has a small, flat nose. His hair is about ear length, and black. He has a scar on the palm of his right hand from accidentally touching a hot stove as a child. He isn't very muscular, but his legs are long and fairly strong.

Daniel tends to favor dark clothing, generally wearing about three layers, with a t-shirt, long-sleeved shirt and a sweatshirt. As his t-shirts tend to be buried by other clothing, Daniel doesn't really care what they look like, and thus throws on anything that fits. He prefers long-sleeved shirts that are either solid or have a simple pattern. Daniel mostly wears plain, dark sweatshirts. He gets cold rather easily, so he also tends to wear a dark blue, somewhat poofy jacket. Daniel almost exclusively wears jeans, finding shorts uncomfortable. He typically wears plain, practical tennis shoes.

On the day of the abduction Daniel was wearing a red Pepsi T-shirt, a white long-sleeved shirt with horizontal back stripes, a black, zippered sweatshirt, jeans, and white tennis shoes.

Biography: Daniel has lived a mostly normal life with his two parents and five-year-older sister, Erica. His mother, Jill, works as a lawyer, while his father, Allen, works from home as a fairly successful mystery writer. Erica was born deaf, which lead to Daniel becoming fluent in sign language from an early age. Daniel's family is, while not exactly rich, financially well-off, and he lives in a nicely furnished two-story house.

Daniel and his parents get along well, and he often spends hours discussing various literature-related things with his dad. He doesn't see his mom often, due to her job, but she makes an effort to get together with the family as often as she can. Erica is rather fond of Daniel, often helping him with school related things and such, though she enjoys teasing him. Daniel often has to act as a translator for his sister when they're out together, a role taken by his parents when they are present.

His proficiency with sign language came in handy when a new family moved into the house next door, when he was about seven, one of them being a deaf boy named Michael Mitchellson, who was around Daniel's age. Michael was happy to find another boy who could understand him, along with being a fellow lover of literature, and the two quickly became close friends, with Daniel translating for Michael when necessary.

He joined the soccer team in elementary school mostly due to his parent's urging, but ended up enjoying it and thus sticking with it throughout his life at school. He tends to play offense, and has scored a respectable number of goals.

Allen is a large fan of metal, often playing music from bands such as Iron Maiden in the house while he works. Daniel was thus exposed to the genre from an early age, leading to metal becoming his favorite genre of music. Daniel's favorite sub-genres are Symphonic and Power Metal, especially the bands Nightwish and Blind Guardian. He finds the intricate, melodic guitar work and often fantasy-inspired lyrics incredibly appealing.

At the start of middle school Daniel joined the band, mostly out of curiosity, as both of his parents had been in their school's bands when they were young. He liked it, and thus stuck with it, but finds practicing tedious and thus tends to avoid it whenever possible, leading to his playing skills being, while not really bad, average at best. Daniel plays the flute, which he picked because he simply liked the way it sounded.

The start of his freshman year, he started an informal "Book Club" with Michael, which at the start was just the two of them talking about books they had read and were reading, much like they did normally anyway. However, they soon ended up recruiting a few classmates, leading to a somewhat organized, if still informal, club. There really isn't any strict format to the club, the members just tend to decide on a book to read together, and talk about it while they read. While Daniel is technically co-leader he almost always follows the lead of Michael, who is the one that handles most of the organization.

At school, Daniel tends to get decent grades, often acing the English and history classes, his favorite subjects. However, he tends to do less well in science and outright struggles with math classes, though he often recruits Michael and Erica to help him with his work, resulting in him achieving mostly B's.

Daniel does not have a large network of friends, though he is on friendly terms with the majority of his classmates. He does, however, have a couple of distant friends on the soccer team and band, and is friends with pretty much everyone in the book club.

Daniel plans on going to a local college and majoring in English, getting a job in the book industry afterwards. At the moment, he is been working as a cashier at Something Borrowed Used Books, heavily exercising his employee discount.

Daniel is a mostly easy-going person, tending to let others take the lead. When he is forced to take command, he will try to step down as soon as possible. Daniel is capable of managing others, as long as he is still working under orders, but if he is faced with the sole responsibility of making decisions the pressure tends to overwhelm Daniel; leading to him panicking and making mistakes.

During his childhood Daniel's parents emphasized courtesy and considering the feelings of others, leading to him adopting a very polite manner of speech; along with hardly ever swearing. Daniel is also very empathetic, often considering the needs of others before his own, occasionally at the expense of his own well being. As a result Daniel is very heavily affected by violence, even feeling heavily physically ill in extreme cases.

Daniel relaxes and loosens up around his friends, though he still keeps his speech slightly formal out of personal preference. He naturally gets along well with most people, and is not easily angered.

Advantages: Daniel is quite athletic due to the soccer team, and is thus excellent at running, being able to both sprint quickly and run long distances without getting winded. He is a friendly person, and thus would probably have a fairly easy time of making allies.
Disadvantages: Daniel has a strong aversion to hurting others, and would likely be incapacitated by nausea after viewing any major act of violence. He's not very good at taking initiative, and would probably be unsure of what to do if left alone.

Designated Weapon: Officially Licensed Indiana Jones Replica Whip
Conclusion: Thinking positively. He's now got something longer and thinner than him, right? - Abyy Soto
