Biography: Corey is a third-generation Italian, born to Mark and Gina Esposito on January 2nd. The two had met in college, and saw that they shared many things in common, and fell in love, eventually getting married. Corey was born two years later. Corey is an only child, and so his parents had a lot of time to spend with him. As such, his relationship with them is very close, and he loves them very much. Corey's home life is very comfortable, as his parents own a small, but fairly popular, Italian family restaurant. Overall, Corey's relationship with his family is very positive.
Ever since Corey was young, he was very outgoing and friendly. He would always greet people with a smile, even people he had only met for the first time. He was also full of energy, always running around the house, playing whether game his imagination had conjured up.
Early on, Corey had been interested in technology. It started when Corey got his first video game system at the age of seven. He was hooked, and spent the next few months playing it often. His interest in video games only increased as he grew, as he discovered new types of games, each of them bringing their own new experiences. His rowdiness had all but disappeared, as, he spent more and more time just playing games, and he eventually became calmer and more laid-back. When he discovered rhythm games, he became more interested in listening to music. As he got older, he began to explore various genres of electronic music, which became his favorite thanks in part to the rhythm games.
When Corey was eleven, he had his first real experience with a computer, and with it, the Internet. He began using it to find various video game website, where he could find other people who shared the same interests as he did. Later on, after he discovered websites like Youtube and Reddit, he became more and more ingrained in Internet culture, spending more and more time online. He also used the Internet for educational purposes, browsing sites like Wikipedia to gain more knowledge about the world. He was also able to find more music to listen to, which really broadened his horizons on music and allowed him to add more genres to his favorites.
By the time Corey had entered high school, he had many friends with a variety of shared interests, mostly gamers and people with similar musical tastes. He would spend time with these friends playing video games, or just talking. He also had a few childhood friends from around his neighborhood. Corey's friendliness was the driving force behind many of these friendships, as he believed that he could make anyone his friend, if he tried hard enough. This attitude may have rubbed some people the wrong way, as they found this behavior annoying. However, Corey didn't mind it. He understood that it was also not good to force a friendship, and if there was someone who he saw was bothered, he would ease off. This meant that there are very few people who dislike him.
Corey's grades in school are average, with most of his marks being B's or a rare C. Corey isn't as invested into his classes as he should be, and he knows it. He is intelligent, but finds that he has to struggle to put in a lot of effort into his studies. Both he and his parents believe that he could easily get A's if he put his mind into it, but he often feels bored with his studies, and would rather play games or hang out with his friends. Corey does not have a subject he particularly likes or dislikes, but finds he can hold interest in science classes much better than in classes like English or theology. For this reason, Corey feels that he would like to go into a career in science, although he isn't too sure.
Corey lives life with a laid-back and carefree attitude. He tries not to worry about things unnecessarily, and tries to ease any stress he has, usually playing games or listening to music. Corey's outlook on life is that anything can turn out okay, so it's not good to worry too much. Overall, Corey has had a good life.
Advantages: Corey will have no problems making any potential allies; he has many friends and few enemies.
Disadvantages: Corey's easy-going attitude may hinder him on the island, as he may be unable to deal with the stress of the situation. His friendliness means he may not have the incentive to go along with the game.
Hey Condor! Corey's looking good, but he's DENIED pending a bit of expansion.
Firstly, in the hobbies and interests, "listening to music" is way too vague. What specific types of music does he tend to listen to, and how did he get into them?
Next, in the bio. You mention that Corey was rowdy as a child, but that he also had an interest for playing video games for hours on end at age 7 and up. This seems like a contradiction to me, considering that video games consist of nothing but sitting around and looking at a screen- the opposite of running about and being hyperactive. Maybe video games helped Corey mellow out? I just don't think both could happen at the same time.
What types of people does Corey hang out with? Saying "people with many similar interests" isn't quite enough. Are his friends mostly gamers? Tech-heads? What do they do when they hang out?
Why doesn't Corey put effort into school? What does he hope to do career wise?
Post when you have the edits and I'll take another look!
