Name: Andrew Hapkins
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Grade: Junior
School: Cochise High School
Hobbies and Interests: RPG, Webcomics, Literature, Sailing, Swimming

Appearance: Andrew is pretty tall for his age, at 6'3" feet. He weighs around 173 pounds. He is fairly athletic due to regular swimming. He has blonde, wavy hair he keeps short most of the year. Andrew's face is round, with a pointy chin. He has grey-blue eyes, full lips and a big nose. He has typical teenage acne and a rash on his left cheek he can't get rid of. His teeth aren't in perfect shape, so he wears a retainer at night. His left hand is often covered in writings he makes when he doesn't want to forget something.

Andrew wears almost only hoodies and jeans. He doesn't care about fashion the slightest bit. He wears trainers for most of the year, except for summer holidays, when he's going barefoot. In the summer he also wears jeans cut to knee length and T-shirts with punny overprints.

Biography: Andrew was born on February 6th, 1998 in Kingman to Charlie Hapkins, a house painter, and Susan Hapkins, an accountant. He has a younger sister Mary, two years younger than him. His mom was a little overprotective and spoiled him sometimes. He always looked up to his dad. As a child he thought he was strong and funny and wanted to be like him in the future. He maintained good contact with his parents through his childhood and teen years.

Andrew had a happy childhood. He was a cheerful kid with a lot of imagination. He was the one thinking of games to play so he had many friends in the kindergarten. His family wasn't the richest one, but they could live comfortably in a small house with two dogs. Andrew loved his dogs. Their names were Sticks and Stones and he and his sister used to play with them everytime their parents were busy working. He still loves dogs.

In elementary school Andrew was a pretty good student. He was an intelligent child so he had no problem with learning. He remembered what the teacher was talking about in the class and that made up for most of the learning. What he did have a problem with was his forgetfulness and tendency to space out. He convinced some of his friends to try roleplaying. They did and they liked it They played mostly D&D, the system his older friend introduced him to. Later they tried many other RPGs but they kept playing D&D with short brakes for other ones. When he was 10 his parents signed him for a swimming course, which Andy liked. He wasn't very good at it, but for years of practice made him much, much better.The rest of the class considered him a nice if somewhat weird person.

When Andrew was 12 dad took him sailing for the first time. He loved it. They started going sailing every summer vacation and Andrew gained more and more experience in sailing. He's planning to go to a sailing camp to learn stuff his dad already forgot about so that he can became more of a real sailor.

In the beginning of Andy's education in Cochise there wasn't much happening for him. He played RPGs with some friends. He joined the book club because he just liked books mostly. And it was a good occasion to get some new ideas what to read because at this point he had already ran out of Terry Pratchett. Andy also joined the swim team. It seemed as a logical course of action, as he was a fairly competent swimmer at this point. He didn't have much problem socializing. People that didn't consider him to be okay considered him being either nerd, or weirdo, or both. He didn't like it but he acted like he didn't care. He did care, though. He cared what people he barely known thought or said about him. It made him a little disappointed with himself. As for now, he is on good terms with most of his class.

Andy is a good student overall. In the high school he finally learned to study. To the more important exams at least. That, of course, made his grades go up. Andy still doesn't like it though. He considers it necessary evil. He gets good marks, unless he forgets his homework or does something similiarly stupid and totally avoidable, like forgetting the day of the exam because he forgot to write it down. It happens more often than it should, because Andrew is disorganized. He also often stays late at night reading books or using his computer.

Advantages: While swimming itself probably wouldn't be very useful, it gave Andy good stamina and strength. He has good memory for things he thinks are important. He's intelligent and it can help him solve problems or outsmart people occasionally.
Disadvantages: Andy is disorganized. He often forgets about things that don't seem interesting or very important to him. He has problems with staying vigilant unless he focuses. Sometimes, he is too sensitive about what people say about him, which make it harder for him to find allies.
