What I'm looking for Brendan is friends, love interest (boy or girl), crushes, rivals, enemies, etc.Brendan Harte wrote: Name: Brendan Harte
School: Cochise High School
Hobbies and interests: Swimming, reading, writing and running.
Appearance: Brendan is a very tall and a lanky teenager for his age. He is at the height of 6'4" and at the weight of 174Ibs, he does have a very muscular body due to swimming regularly. Brendan is a child of Asian-American descent, although his white skin has a slight brown tan from swimming so much. He has an angled jawline and his lips are small and are always in a frowning position. His nose is slightly bent to the left side of his face and his eyes are emerald green and a rounded shape. His hair is very short, black and has slight curls at the bottom. He mostly has a clean face and he has a mole just under his left eye.
Brendan's wardrobe normally is whatever he wants to wear. Most of the time, he would be seen wearing a red hoodie, blue jeans, black t-shirts and sometimes in the winter, he would wear a black coat to keep himself warm. On the day of the trip, Brendan was wearing a plain black t-shirt, a grey hoodie, blue jeans and black sneakers.
Biography: Brendan Harte was born on July 29th, 1997, to Gregg Harte and Yoko Nagasaki. Yoko was a wild girl at a young age and she had a one-night stand with a gentle-hearted Gregg Harte. Yoko didn't tell Gregg of Brendan's birth until he was actually born and she left her son in Gregg's arms, saying that she could not deal with the responsibility of being a parent. Gregg wasn't sure what to do and he asked his parents to help him support his own child, which they did. Gregg had tried to pursue Yoko to help raise their son, but Yoko told him that she hadn't wanted a child at all and she just paid Gregg child support to help him out with Brendan. When Yoko left with her parents to France, Gregg was devastated that Brendan wouldn't get to know his mother at all. As Brendan got to the age of five, he had wondered why he had no mother and he asked Gregg about his mother. Gregg broke the news that his mother had abandoned him and his father promised that he wouldn't abandon him, comforting his crying son in his arms. Brendan was only upset at his father for about a year or so for not trying hard enough to stop his mother from leaving.
Brendan was mostly raised by his grandparents, Bernice and Gareth Harte, at a very young age and he was thankful for their love and support. Gregg tried to spend time with his son but he struggled as he was more focused on his work as a policeman than his own son and Brendan just started to hate his own father and just think of him as a complete stranger. Brendan only told Gregg once that Bernice and Gareth are his real parents instead of him. Bernice and Gareth both became concerned with Brendan's behavior towards his own father and Gregg was sad over the fact that his own son was showing nothing but complete hatred towards him. Brendan was more happy to live with his grandparents as he disliked being at home all alone at the age of six and he was distancing himself more from his father.
At the age of six, Bernice and Gareth took Brendan to his first swimming lesson and he absolutely enjoyed it. Swimming just made Brendan feel like he was free from all his worries and troubles in his life. He is worried that his father will one day break his promise, abandon him like his mother and realise his fear of being alone forever. Bernice and Gareth both forced Brendan to spend time with his father at the swimming pool and they both had a fun time together. Brendan regrets holding a grudge against his own father, but they are now slowly getting along which makes Gregg and his parents all happy that Brendan's behavior is getting better. At his lessons, Brendan managed to make a few friends despite his very shy and awkward behavior with other people. He continued to do swimming a lot with his grandparents and his friends and he was happy to have been introduced to his first hobby by them. He continues to love that sport to this very day.
Brendan wasn't very good at socializing with other kids in elementary or in middle school as he enjoyed to focus more time on himself and his small group of friends. The teachers had tried to get Brendan into working on subjects with other people or clubs but Brendan prefers to work more independently and he didn't really like clubs. Brendan was a student who was bullied easily since he wouldn't stand up to bullies due to his shy and clumsy nature. Once he tried to stand up to a bully and he ended up having his nose broken. He told his father about what happened and Gregg told him to try to stay away from any more bullies and hope that they will not mess with him. Brendan was too scared to get hurt again and he didn't have the courage to stand up to other bullies. Because of his cowardly nature, his friends got tired of how he was acting and they abandoned him. Brendan felt so betrayed by his friends' actions and it caused him to break down in his father's arms. Gregg and his parents tried their best to cheer Brendan up by telling him that he will one day make friends again in the future and Brendan was relieved to hear this as he did want to have friends again.
Brendan sometimes liked to be alone in his own little world thanks to his father buying him books to read if he was bored of watching TV at home. Brendan would always bury his head into books that piqued his interest which were mostly crime and mystery novels. As he continued to read books, he started to write his own short stories at the age of thirteen. He mostly liked to write his stories of the romance and horror genres. However, he was never satisfied when he has his villains killed off in the end, but he still enjoys his time of coming up with ideas in his own controlled world on paper. He tries to make his villains have happy endings but he notices that they never get to be with the one that they love. So he just continues to make the heroes win or he will just leave some of his stories at a cliffhanger as he did believe that villains will never be happy and he did actually prefer to make the heroes have better lives than the villains. He is also afraid that his readers in the future would not like the endings of the stories if he made the villains win. He also has kept his writing a secret from his father and his grandparents as he is afraid that they won't like his stories. Brendan dreams of one day becoming a famous author.
Other than swimming, Brendan had always loved running around on his own to keep himself fit and to let him think about what he wants to do with his life. Brendan is sad that he can't do this activity with his grandparents. However, he is pleased when his father sometimes does go with him on jogs to spend time bonding with his son more at the young age of fifteen. He has also joined the track team as he thinks that it will help him be more competitive with other students and make it more fun for himself.
Brendan never really thought of exploring what kind of sexuality that he would have at the age of sixteen, that is until he met Bernadette Thomas, who became his first crush and friend at Cochise High School. However, when he discovered that she had a boyfriend, he decided to try to focus on being friends with her and he secretly cheers for her to be happy with the one that she loves. Brendan also has a good friendship with Bernadette's boyfriend, Tyler Yazzie, although at times Brendan does feel a bit scared of Ty. He is still good friends with his swimming group of friends and he does hang out with them outside of school. He is only really friends with Bernadette and Ty at Cochise school as he still struggles to open up to other students and he is still afraid that he would get bullied again. He is becoming more friendly towards his friends and he is willing to help them out if any of them are having problems with schoolwork or any other personal problems. Brendan discovered that he is bisexual as he is interested in both sexes, but he is more into boys than girls. However, he is afraid of having a romantic relationship as he is worried that it will end up as badly as his parents' relationship. Brendan has told his father and his grandparents of his bisexuality and they are very supportive of his sexuality.
Brendan's grades at Cochise have been unsatisfying to him, as he found out that he has been failing in his two least favorite subjects, math and science. Brendan has forced himself to study harder for those subjects and he has asked his father to get him a tutor to help him with those two subjects. His favorite subject, English, is of the grade of an A and in art, his grade is that of a B. He is also doing very well in the subject of PE by achieving the grade of A. Brendan really dislikes doing algebra in math as he really struggles with it and he doesn't like doing of the experiments in science and he finds that science is too boring for him. He really enjoys doing literature in English as it helps him learn more about writing, he really loves doing sketches in art of self-portraits as they inspire him to be more creative and artistic and in PE, he really likes doing running on the track team as he finds it a lot of fun and he still loves doing swimming as well to keep fit. Brendan does not plan to go to college and he is going to get a job. He is still planning on becoming an author.
Advantages: Brendan will be very supportive of any of his friends, he is a very friendly person, his endurance could help him out of a sticky situation, he is very independent and he will help any of his friends that are in a bad situation.
Disadvantages: Brendan had a lot of trust issues, he doesn't have many friends, he can be very cowardly and he is an easy target for bullies.
