Name: Michael Robinson, Jr.
Gender: Male
Age: 17
School: Whittree Secondary School
Hobbies and Interests: Acting, academics, video games

Appearance: Michael is short for his age, standing at 5'5”. He has a wiry frame, weighing 126 pounds. He has an oval shaped face, with short black hair, small brown eyes and a small, round nose. Michael's skin is a dark brown, due to his African ancestry.

Michael wears a pair of black half-rimmed glasses; He only needs them for reading, but he almost always keeps them on. He prefers to dress in dark, loose fitting clothes. On Casting Day he wore a black hoodie that was slightly too large for him, with a white t-shirt, dark blue jeans and black sneakers.

Biography: Michael's parents, Michael Sr. and Laila, were born and raised in Whittree. They met when they were only in elementary school, and dated throughout high school. They eventually married after they graduated from college and bought a house close to where they grew up. Michael Jr., their only child, was born on March 16, 2003. Michael Sr. is an accountant, and Laila is a cardiologist, so they have been able to afford a comfortable life for their son. Their parenting is not strict, but they make sure not to be too permissive. Michael has a generally good relationship with his parents, outside of the occasional argument.

In elementary school, Michael was shy and nonathletic, and thus he had a hard time making friends. As a result, he grew to become very concerned about gaining other people's approval. Around the time he entered middle school, Michael starting putting effort into changing the way he acted, always trying to appear calm and laid-back, and hiding negative emotions such as anger and sadness. He began frequently making sarcastic remarks, and trying his best to seem confident. He would intentionally put himself in social situations that he would have previously avoided due to his timidity. Over time, he began talking to his classmates more, and spending more time with them outside of class. As a result, Michael has become a genuinely confident person, though he still cares very much about what others think of him. Michael still doesn't have any close friends, but he's on good terms with most of his class.

Michael's parents stress the importance of good grades, and he takes their advice to heart. He has A's in all of his classes aside from a B+ in physics, a subject that he finds especially difficult. After graduation, Michael intends to get into a good college and get a job somewhere in the business world. Michael thinks that he'd be good at negotiating and organization, in addition to wanting a job that pays well.

Michael took a theatre class in ninth grade on a whim, and, to his surprise, he found out that he was very good at acting. He joined the Whittree drama club the following year. He only sees acting as a hobby, but he makes sure to put effort into his performances so that they live up to the expectations of the other club members.

Playing video games had been Michael's favorite hobby from elementary school until he started high school. However, he started playing video games less and less as he began to spend more time with socializing, studying, and drama. He now only plays them on occasion, when he has nothing else to do. He prefers first person shooters and fighting games, his favorite series being SOTF Combat.

Though he likes the SOTF video games, Michael is ambivalent about the show itself. He enjoys the tense atmosphere and following the individual characters' stories, but he's squeamish about the frequent gore. He's afraid people will think of him as cowardly if he admits this, so when he's watching with other people he pretends to enjoy the violent scenes.

Advantages: Michael has trained himself to remain calm, and he can appear confident even when he's scared. He's fairly intelligent, and he's a good actor. In addition, Michael has a friendly relationship with most of Whittree's student body.
Disadvantages: Michael isn't athletic, and he has little physical strength. He constantly worries about others' opinions of him, so he tries to hide any weakness to the point where it overrides his rational judgement. Despite being friendly with most of the other Whittree students, Michael doesn't have any close friends who he can absolutely trust.

Mentor Comment: "Well the run of cool weapons had to end some time. Just unlucky it had to be you I guess. At least your good at acting buddy, maybe you can catch someone in a net of lies and then...ah fuck this metaphor. He'll be fine."
