Name: Karl Chalmers
School: Colehurst Secondary School
Hobbies and Interests: Politics, mathematics, science, leadership programs, comedy shows, pop music
Appearance: Karl is a relatively tall (5'11"), thin (153 lbs) boy. He has straight black hair, cut short and close, and dark brown eyes. He does not yet need to shave. Karl's face is lean, with his most prominent features being his thin eyebrows and his sharp nose. His teeth, thanks to two years of braces, are perfectly straight, though they are not as white as he would like, despite his meticulous oral hygiene. His complexion is fair, and clear overall. Karl has a thin scar running about an inch down his left cheek, the result of an attack by a bully during his second year in middle school. He is generally considered fairly handsome, though is not popular with girls.
Karl is not particularly strong or muscular, devoting little of his time to physical conditioning. He jogs and lifts weights sporadically, but does neither with enough regularity to achieve any notable results.
Karl always dresses semi-formally, wearing slacks and long-sleeved shirts or polo shirts, with expensive leather shoes. On the day he was taken he was wearing a dark grey long-sleeved shirt, dark brown slacks, and his black leather shoes.
Biography: Karl hails from a very wealthy family. His parents are officials in the Mylan, Inc. pharmaceutical company, and, throughout his life, they have made sure to provide Karl with the best of everything. Karl has no siblings, and spent much of his childhood in the care of various nannies and extended family members. His parents are people he respects and admires, but does not feel particularly comfortable around, always fearing that he will let them down or somehow damage the family's reputation.
In his early schooling career, Karl's parents decided to send him through public school, so he would learn to understand the world and his less-privileged peers. He was quickly placed into several advanced classes. He displayed an easy aptitude for mathematics and science, though his interest in reading and literature was notably below average. In fact, it is only in the past year that he has finally managed to pull his English scores up to a reasonable level. As school went on, Karl quickly discovered that he was not like most of his peers. Anything he wanted, he could get by asking his parents, while his classmates had to work for rewards or were simply unable to have the things they desired. This inequality led to Karl being ostracized fairly quickly, especially since he was prone to flaunting his status, a habit he toned down significantly in later years.
The disrespect he faced from his classmates confused and upset Karl, and led him to try to find the source of it. He took an interest in economics, social issues, and the government, running for (and being soundly defeated in) a bid for class government in his first year of middle school. His loss in that election temporarily dampened his interest in politics, and he focused even more on mathematics and science, seeking solace in subjects in which he could find success. In the meantime, his mistreatment at the hands of his peers intensified, culminating in a savage beating by a boy a year older than him that left him with a scar on his cheek. Karl's parents were horrified, and, by complaining to the school, were able to get the offending student expelled. It was at this point that Karl realized the power of complaining to higher authorities. He began to report any slight, however trivial, to the school administration. Usually, this had no effect, but it gave Karl the reputation of a tattletale. The bullying stopped, but instead of accepting Karl, his classmates simply ignored him.
Rather than give in or change his ways, Karl decided to find out where the school's authorities derived their power. He knew that nobody ignored the principal, and figured that he, too, could command respect with a similar position. His political aspirations revived, Karl sought to understand not only how one joined the government, but also why it existed. He began to take part in various political outlets, including extracurricular and internet groups. Slowly, politics became a big part in Karl’s life, as he sought to become a political leader, or be in a similar position of power.
Karl has a few friends who share his views, but, for the most part, his classmates find him to be a highly distasteful individual. As a result, he does not have much of a social group to enjoy his free time with, instead devoting it to studying the government, and math and sciences. Karl is a slightly better than average student in most areas, not attracting too much notice, but certainly performing adequately enough for his parents and teachers, and still earning a place in advanced math and science classes. Karl is a member of every leadership program offered by Colehurst Secondary School. He is also a member of student council, but has never managed to get elected to any notable office.
Karl is a fairly charming and personable figure in conversation; however, he is also a notorious administration pawn and political fanatic. In discussions about politics, he speaks with fervor, talking at great length about various topics regarding the government or about his political aspirations. When not discussing topics of interest to him, Karl is distant yet polite, nodding along and listening until he can graciously exit the conversation.
When Karl has time to actually relax, he is fond of comedy shows and pop music. He does not read for pleasure, though he has forced his way through several classics recently, so that he will be able to converse intelligently on them.
Advantages: Karl is charming, and a good speaker. He understands leadership, though he is not particularly adept at putting it into practice. He's good at keeping his cool, and, though not a fighter, he is not unfamiliar with the pain of taking a punch or two.
Disadvantages: Karl is extremely unpopular with the majority of the school, being viewed as a suck up, an elitist, and a narc. He has few friends, and is generally not well respected, so convincing someone to listen to him long enough to work his charm may be a challenge.
Original Profile: Karl Chalmers
Designated Number: Male Student No. 03
Designated Weapon: Remington 870
Conclusion: Looks like B03 has a bit of punch to make up for his personality defects. Here's hoping he's willing to take some action himself for a change. There aren't many higher authorities on the island than a shotgun.
