Name: Michael Mitchellson
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Grade: 12th
School: Aurora High School
Hobbies and Interests: Literature, Internet-ing, Technology in general, Video Games, Tae Kwon Do, Tabletop RPGs. In the Book Club.

Appearance: Michael has short, spiky, light blond hair. He is a bit short, about 5''6', and weighs a healthy 140 pounds, with a medium frame. His full face is rather freckly, though acne-free. He has light blue eyes, thin, blonde eyebrows, and is clean-shaven. He is fairly muscular due to his martial arts training.

Michael loves wearing bright clothing, light green being a favorite. He prefers wearing button-down shirts, typically with the collar upturned. He tends to dress lightly, even during winter, not being bothered by the cold. He loved the Indiana Jones movies, and as such has recently started wearing dark fedoras, considering them to be the best type of hat.

Biography: Michael was born deaf, a fact that he tends to take in stride and ignore whenever possible. He usually communicates through his friends, (such as Daniel) whenever possible, though when caught alone he resorts to using text-to-speech utilities on his phone or, in truly drastic cases, a pen and pad of notepaper he carries with him at all times.

Michael sometimes gets annoyed by how he often has to rely on others to relay his words (though he doesn't take it out on them,) and as such often overcompensates with the forcefulness of his speech, trying to pack as much energy as possible into his words. He doesn't really think much about his deafness, aside from the occasional annoyance when it causes difficulty, mostly due to the fact that he's never known anything else.

He was an only child, raised alone by his father, Paul, after his mother died in a car accident when Michael was about 5 months old. Although Michael was born in California, after the death of Michael's mother Paul was forced to work increasingly hard to support the both of them. Paul worked as a full-time paramedic, but it is not a very lucrative job, and so was forced to move to Seattle where his parents lived, who were able to provide some much needed support.

Michael has a very close relationship with his grandparents, due to often being left at their house while his father worked. While Michael loves and respects his father, the two aren't very close, though Paul does his best to spend time with him. Michael's grandparents pretty much took over the role of raising him. Both of his grandparents are still alive today and while Michael spends a lot of his time alone, at his house, he still visits his grandparents often.

Being a somewhat lonely child, only being able to communicate with his dad, grandparents, and teacher at school (there was a class specifically for disabled children, but none of the handful of other children knew sign language) he was thus overjoyed when he met Daniel, his next door neighbor who understood sign language due to having a deaf sister, at the age of six. The two soon became close friends, with Daniel often translating for Michael.

Michael started reading at an early age, due to it being one of the few forms of media that had no auditory component (he had a hard time following the subtitles on TV as a child, due to their speed) and thus became a lifelong lover of literature, favoring speculating fiction such as Discworld and The Belgariad. During his freshman year of high school, he started a Book Club with Daniel (ignoring protests that it was pretty much what they did together normally, anyway) and has over the years assembled a small group of members.

He also fell in love with computers early on, using Paul's computer to play Edutainment games, though he couldn't use the internet without supervision. As he grew older, allowed to browse the web on his own, he found himself drawn to sites such as TV Tropes, where he was introduced to Tabletop RPGs. He's still a dedicated Troper today, along with frequenting forums dedicated to Tabletop games.

Michael mostly plays Tabletop games online, due to the ease of communication, but enjoys playing in real life whenever he can drag Daniel along with him to translate. He doesn't really have a preferred system, as long as it works, and allows for creativity, he'll happily play it.

Paul, concerned with his son's tendency to stay indoors, enrolled him in a Tae Kwon Do class specifically for deaf children, in order to get him some exercise during elementary school. Michael resented it, at first, but soon discovered that he had a talent for it, having a blue belt as he entered his senior year of high school.

Michael attends a class for disabled students at Aurora High School, and excels at English, computers, and math, though he struggles a bit in science and history. He doesn't have many friends outside of the book club, mostly due to the difficulty of communication, but he is friends with the handful of students who can also speak in sign language.

He hasn't really had any relationships with the opposite sex, mostly owing to the difficulty of romance by proxy.

In general, Michael is cheerful, energetic and optimistic. He often unintentionally offends people due to the directness of his speech. Despite this, he makes an effort to be kind to others unless they insult him in some manner, after which he'll happily let loose a storm of insults which lose most of their impact due to the often deadpan delivery of his translators.

Advantages: Healthy, extremely good eyesight(his other senses are more keen due to his lack of hearing) practitioner of Tae Kwon Do.
Disadvantages: Deaf, tends to charge headlong into situations without thinking things through, his direct, forceful manner may turn away some people.

Hey DMBoogie! I'm Ruggahissy (obviously, right?)



So, I'm already kind of in love with Michael . He is temporarily denied but all he needs is a little extra oomph.


There's nothing really wrong with him. The only thing I'd say is that the bio is ever so slightly bare at the moment. Tell me a little more about his relationship to his grandparents and father. Does he have relationships with *girls*? What sort of books does he like to read? What kind of things does he like to do on the internet (is he a 4channer :S) ?

What's his overall outlook on life? How does he feel about being deaf? Is he angry and resentful about it or is he just happy for what he has in life? Cheerful? Sarcastic? Bubbly? Stubborn? What's Michael's personality like?

Also you accidentally bolded all of the advantages. Go ahead and clean that up and I'll give it another look when it's done. : )

Awesome. Looks like we're all good on content. I just have a few clean up notes on grammar:


While born in California, after Michael's mother's death Paul was forced to work increasingly hard to support the both of them, but as he worked as full-time paramedic, which isn't the most lucrative of jobs, Paul was eventually forced to move to Seattle, where his parents lived, so they could provide some much needed support.

This is a tad clunky and at first I thought it was saying that Paul was born in California. Also, there are some unnecessary commas where ending the sentence would work better and commas that don't need to be there at all. It'd read a little smoother as:

"Although Michael was born in California, after the death of his mother Paul was forced to work increasingly hard to support both of them. He worked full-time as a paramedic, but because it isn't the most lucrative of jobs, they were forced to move to Seattle where his parents lived and were able to get some much needed support."


This sentence doesn't' need the little bit at the beginning:

As such Michael has a very close relationship with his grandparents, due to often being left at their house while his father worked.


"Both of his grandparents are still alive, today, and while Michael spends a lot of his time alone, at his house, he still visits his grandparents often."

No commas needed before and after "today."

During his freshman year of High School, he started a Book Club with Daniel, (ignoring protests that it was pretty much what they did together normally, anyway) and has over the years assembled a small group of members.

No commas needed after "school" and after "Daniel.' Also, high school should be lower case.

"Michael attends a class for disabled students at Aurora High School, and excels at English, Computers, and math, though he struggles a bit in science and history"

Computers is lower case as well.


"In general, Michael is cheerful, energetic and optimistic, and though he often unintentionally offends people due to the directness of his speech he makes an effort to be kind to others, unless they insult him in some manner, after which he'll happily unleash a storm of insults, most of which losing their impact due to Daniel's deadpan delivery."

Run on sentence D:. Just break this one up a bit. It might be better as:

"In general, Michael is cheerful, energetic and optimistic. At times he unintentionally offends people due to the directness of his speech. He makes an effort to be kind to others unless they insult him in some manner, after which he'll happily unleash a storm of insults which mostly lose their impact due to Daniel's deadpan delivery."

On that note: a clarification. Is Daniel the one translating for him even when he's insulting people?


So just some clean up stuff. No biggie. Give me a shout when it's done!
