Appearance: Billy is 5'11" and weighs 160 pounds. He's slim with long limbs and olive skin. Billy's face is narrow and oval shaped with a large forehead and a round chin. He has dark eyes, a a snub nose, and thin lips. His shaggy brown hair extends down the back of his neck and the sides of his face, and in in the front cover his forehead.

Billy dresses in a skater fashion and favors dark colors. He tends to wear black or blue skinny jeans, black sneakers, and form-fitting t-shirts. When it's cold outside he wears a black hooded sweatshirt.

Biography: Guillermo Trevino was born in Chattanooga on April 13th, 1999. His father, Cristian, was 23 and worked at a manufacturing plant for construction equipment. His mother, Bianca, was 21 and worked at a Lowe's store. The two had met, married, and had a child within two years. They were full of youthful energy and preferred to live by acting quickly upon their impulses, so the realities of parenthood came as a shock to their lifestyle. About a year and a half after Billy's birth, Bianca had an identity crisis and decided that she didn't have the desire or the capability for settled family life. She soon broke off her relationship with Cristian and left town to live with her sister.

Cristian, heartbroken and unprepared for single fatherhood, threw himself into his job. He would work long hours at the plant and task his parents with looking after young Billy on most days. This routine persisted as Billy grew from a toddler to a lively child. Billy's grandparents were very hands-off babysitters, leaving Billy to play with the other kids around their neighborhood. Billy was energetic and social: he made friends easily and spent his free time running around and playing games out in the sun. However, he occasionally got into small scuffles, mostly with older kids who tried to push him around. Cristian would scold Billy when he came home, but neither he or his parents ever seriously put effort into changing Billy's behavior.

This behavior presented problems when Billy started going to school. He goofed off during classes, talked back to his teacher, and got into fights with other students. When Billy's teacher recommended that he repeat kindergarten, Cristian decided that he needed to be an active parent even if he wasn't around very much. He had become a rather serious man over the previous few years, and he felt that firm guidance was what Billy needed. He began to enact harsh punishments whenever Billy misbehaved. He convinced his parents to reduce Billy's playtime and replace it with chores and tutoring. Whenever he was around Billy personally, he tried to teach the boy the value of hard work, responsibility, and playing by the rules. Billy didn't appreciate these attempts at guidance. He was a stubborn child and he didn't like the restrictive changes to his routine. He was annoyed that his father had started exerting such control over him despite not being around most of the time. However, while Billy refused to change his attitude, he learned to be more discrete about it. He didn't like to be punished and he was embarrassed about having to repeat kindergarten, so he made sure not to misbehave unless he was certain that his family and teachers wouldn't find out. Still, he got caught often enough that his father was still aware of his problems. He soon developed a mistrust towards authority figures, believing that they only wanted to unjustly control and punish him for insignificant offenses.

When Billy was seven, his father signed him up for Little League Baseball. Cristian hoped that it would teach Billy the value discipline and teamwork. Despite his reluctance, Billy soon became skilled in his role as third baseman. He also soon became a fan of professional baseball, particularly the Atlanta Braves. Watching games together would become some of the times that Billy and his father would truly be able to relax and have fun with each other.

Around this time, Cristian received a promotion that left him both more money and more free time. His parents set him up with Mia, a librarian living in their neighborhood. Cristian wasn't sure if he wanted to start dating again, but he became smitten before long. To everyone's surprise, the relationship moved nearly as fast as Cristian's previous one. They married and leased a house on the other side of town from Cristian's old cramped apartment.

When Billy was ten, his twin siblings Gabriel and Diana were born. Cristian was determined to be active in his new children's lives from the very beginning, and he determined that Billy was old enough to have an allowance and more free time to pursue his own interests. Billy used much of his newfound leisure time playing video games. He had played them before at friends' houses, and he was finally able to devote significant time to them. He mostly played PC games on his family computer, not wanting to have to spend money on a console before being able to play. In particular, he enjoyed shooters for their fast paced and exhilarating game play, and he liked role playing games with imaginative worlds that he could explore. He ran into friction with his parents whenever he wanted to buy a game that seemed too violent, but otherwise they allowed him to play games as long as he kept up with his schoolwork and baseball practice.

When he entered middle school, Billy befriended some skater classmates and began spending time at the local skate park after school. He was excited seeing the other kids perform skateboard tricks and was eager to try them out himself, even after injuring himself a few times. Skateboarding appealed to the wild energetic side of him; he loved the adrenaline rush of going fast and trying to pull off dangerous maneuvers with a risk of injury. Eventually, he saved the money to buy himself his own skateboard. He also began embracing some aspects of skater culture, such as the clothes and the music.

Billy also began spending more time browsing the internet. He discovered an interest in horror and the paranormal. While he enjoyed the occasional horror movie or game, Billy's real interest lay in scary stories that claimed to be based in reality. Purportedly true tales of hauntings, cryptids, and alien abductions scared him more than stories that were open about being fictional. He didn't genuinely believe in the paranormal, but the very possibility that such things could be real intrigued him. Alongside that came an interest in conspiracy theories. The idea of shadowy government conspiracies appealed to the anti-authoritarian side of him, but as with the paranormal, Billy didn't actually believe the theories were true.

At fifteen Billy enrolled in George Hunter High School. He was able to get onto the junior varsity baseball team, but he quickly became dissatisfied. Billy enjoyed baseball, but he had never enjoyed the pressures of organized sports, staying in Little League mainly to keep his father pleased. In high school, he was expected to put more time and effort into baseball than ever before. Having to keep up with the schedule annoyed him, as did the attitudes of his coach and many of his teammates. He started slacking off, missing practices and performing poorly in games. After an argument with Coach Oppenheimer, Billy finally quit the team. Cristian was furious, and after a long shouting match, he declared that he had given up. Cristian told his son that he had tried hard to instill good values in him, but he had run out of patience and he was busy with work and raising the twins, and Billy was now old enough to decide what to do with himself. Afterwards, Cristian mostly stopped trying to discipline his eldest son. Billy kept playing baseball casually and kept watching it on television, but he watched games with his father less often.

In the following years, Billy has spent most of his time away from home, hanging out with friends. Billy wanted to enjoy his newfound freedom as much as he could, and he threw himself in to activities that he wasn't able to participate in before. He started going to parties, soon becoming a mainstay of the George Hunter High party scene. At these parties he has started drinking and doing drugs: mostly just smoking marijuana, but also trying some other party drugs such as ecstasy. He believes that such things are fine in moderation, and avoids any hard drugs. Billy knows that his father's patience can only go so far, so he avoids staying out late too often, and he hides his drug use from his family. He only uses drugs when they're offered by someone else; he's too afraid of being caught to keep any in his house and he would have a hard time affording them anyway.

Billy is somewhat popular. He has never had trouble making friends, and he maintains relationships with students of varying interests and social groups. In particular, he likes to spend time with the teenagers that are rebellious or offbeat. Around people he likes, Billy acts personable, easygoing, and playful. However, there are a lot of people that Billy doesn't like. He doesn't like people that are too serious. He doesn't like people that are too preppy. He doesn't like people that believe they're superior to others. He doesn't like people who insult him or his friends. He especially doesn't like authority, and he doesn't like anyone that's never willing to defy authority. Billy makes quick judgements and is slow to change his mind. When Billy dislikes someone, he's very open about it. He gets easily angered by these people, and while it's been quite some time since his last schoolyard fight, heated arguments are a common occurrence.

Billy's relationship with his father has become cool; they don't argue very much anymore, but their conversations are mostly quick and shallow. As Billy has been approaching graduation, Cristian has tried to talk with him about his future, but Billy just dodges his questions. Billy has never had much of a relationship with his stepmother or his young half-siblings. He doesn't have anything against any of them, but he tends to view them as their own contained family group that he's an outsider to. The only members of his family that Billy really likes are his grandparents. He doesn't see them as much as when he was a kid, but he still likes to visit every so often. Billy doesn't remember anything about his mother and hasn't tried her contact her. Her leaving is a sore subject to him and he tries not to think about her.

Billy's grades consist of B's and C's. He has trouble paying attention in class, and he keeps poor study habits. Still, he doesn't want to fail and have to repeat another year, so he tries hard enough to keep his grades from being terrible. The only class where he really tries to succeed is English class: he enjoys the imagination he can express through creative writing, though the quality of his work varies. Billy is approaching graduation but he still doesn't quite have any plans for the future. He's enrolling at the local community college, but beyond that he doesn't know what he'll do.

Advantages: Billy can be charming and make friends easily when he wants to. He's bold and is willing to take risks. Billy has alos built up high pain tolerance fromy ears of skateboarding.
Disadvantages: In addition to friends, Billy has made a lot of enemies. He's impulsive and angers easily. He can also be very stubborn, and he's rarely flexible with his opinions once they're formed.

hello i'm dying


Anyhow


This is a pretty clean profile. I have a couple questions but they are minor.


- Has Cristian completely given up in disciplining Billy? The drugs, alcohol and staying up late seem a little far even for someone who has lost their patience. Does Billy try to hide his partying ways?

- On a related note, weed and ecstasy can add up and it seems like his only revenue source is his allowance. How is he coming by the drugs and alcohol?

- I was a little surprised at the end to see he was in good shape in the advantages since he quit baseball and I don't know how physically fit you get from just skateboarding.

- From what I'm seeing skateboarders have a pretty high pain tolerance. This could go in advantages, unless he does not have that.

- I'd love a little more elaboration on why he likes/ what he gets out of video games, skateboarding (I know he got into it because of the kids around him but does he do it just to fit in with them?) and the partying/ drugs. Is he partying just because he wants to have a good time? He's he something of a hedonist that just wants to have as much fun while he can? Is it to cover sads from being the black sheep in his family?

That's it. Gimmie a ring when you're done.

Alright we're pretty much cool here. The one request I'll make is you remove "drugs" from the interests and hobbies list since he does it fairly casually and I think that's covered by the "partying" entry anyhow. Do this for me and you are set.
