Name: Roy Davis
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Grade: 11th
School: Cochise High School
Hobbies and Interests: climbing, gambling, old sitcoms

Appearance: Roy is 5'8 and weighs 132 pounds. He is wiry but well muscled, especially in the forearms, with an acquired tan. His hands are callused and his body well scarred.

Roy's face is of a triangular shape, his energetic brown eyes flanking a medium sized nose that shows the tweaks that come with multiple breaks. His upper lip is covered with a mustache kept perpetually in a stage of stubble. His shaggy, yet not long, brown hair is messily combed to the side with practiced fingers, though it's uncommon for it not to be hidden under a hat.

Roy tries to dress professionally when not on a climbing excursion, tending to wear short sleeve button ups, accompanied by narrow ties and clean jeans. His attempts at formality are stymied however, by his ragged, dirty adidas and his red and white trucker's hat.

Biography: Danny Davis met Lily Jones when she, a lawyer who had just moved to Kingman for work, brought her car into his mechanic's shop for repairs. Danny offered to trade the work for a dinner, Lily accepted, and they began dating. Three years later they were married.

Roy was born two years later. His early years went great, he was a happy, bright child. His parent's similarly thrived; his father opened two more repair stores and his mother was getting higher profile cases.

Everything changed when Roy was 4. His parents were driving home from a party christmas eve when their car was struck by a drunk driver, killing them both on impact. Roy's christmas gift was months of being shuffled between family members.

Ultimately, Roy ended up in the custody of his uncle Tony Davis. Tony was an insurance salesman without a family of his own, the challenge of raising Roy was an unexpected and unwanted surprise.

Luckily, it turned out Tony needed a family just as much as Roy did. Roy quickly bonded with his uncle, they became like father and son rather than blood-tied strangers. As a child he tried to imitate Tony, he tried to dress as formally as his uncle, and instead of waiting for saturday morning cartoons, Roy looked forward to watching reruns of old sitcoms with his uncle after work.

Elementary school was exciting for Roy. While not gifted intellectually, he quickly made friends of teacher and student alike. Grade school was also when he was introduced to one of his great passions. During 5th grade Tony took Roy with him on one of his monthly climbing trips. That first trip up the Hualapai mountains was more of a casual hike. Regardless, when Roy reached Aspen peak, and saw the landscape far below him, he was hooked.

Tony was soon forced to change his plans to accommodate biweekly climbs. At Roy's insistence they swarmed up steeper and more dangerous routes. By 8th grade Roy had surpassed Tony, a lifelong climber himself, and was leading their way up the mountainside. In his enthusiasm Roy would often cut himself multiple times on a climb, only noticing his injuries when he reached the peak.

When Roy entered Cochise High he continued to underachieve, receiving Ds and Cs in most subjects. In his own eyes however, he was thriving. Roy had taken up free climbing, and had successfully climbed to Hualapai Peak, the highest point in the area, without assistance from ropes or any safety apparati.

Freshman year was also pivotal for Roy in that he reconnected with another member of his family. The last time Roy had seen his maternal grandfather was at his parent's funeral, a hazy memory for the teenage Roy. Lawrence Jones, Larry to his friends, had not taken his daughter and son-in-law's death well. His wife had passed peacefully a few years earlier and there wasn't anyone to prevent his imminent nosedive. Larry's next decade was spent in the bottle, a friend that helped him forget. He had tried to contact Roy a couple of times throughout the years but it wasn't until Roy's 15th birthday, when he arrived sober and bearing gift, that he actually started a relationship with his grandson.

Larry moved to nearby Laughlin, and made his money as a gambler. On the weekends when Roy wasn't climbing he would go stay with his grandfather. They talked about many things, such as politics, business and Roy's parents. Eventually Larry started taking Roy, unbeknownst to his uncle, to less than legal private poker tournaments. While he originally was just a spectator, after a while Roy convinced his grandfather to allow him to play. Roy found that winning a hand of poker gave him the same thrill as climbing did, his new hobby found a place next to climbing in his mind and schedule.

As Roy enters his junior year he is enjoying life. He continues to pursue climbing and play cards. He is content to fly under the radar grade wise. All in all Roy is living in the moment rather than living for tomorrow.

Advantages: Roy is physically fit and comfortable with danger due to his climbing experience, additionally his card playing had given him the ability to read people.
Disadvantages: Roy is not motivated in most activities, nor is he book smart. Also his pursuit of adrenaline may lead him into damaging situation.
