Our kids are all Sophomores at Calvin Street Senior High, or CSSH, located in Rochester, New York. Planted firmly in middle class, CSSH sees its fair share of students from both the upper-middle and lower-middle class and serves as something of a melting pot of social statuses. CSSH is well known for its Football Team and its high graduation rate, with many graduates moving on to Syracuse University at the recommendation of alumni Principal Rutherford. The school colors are red, black, and white and the mascot is the Fighting Bulldog. The Game is set in late March of 1998 and is the equivalent of 1998 America and is the first of its unique brand of terrorism.
MAKING A CHARACTER:
To start, reserve either a female or male spot. As mentioned before, it's first come, first serve. Once the roster is full, I'll release a profile template to be used. As a note when creating your character, I'd like to consider The Game more relaxed than v5 in the realism department, so feel free to be imaginative, but not outlandish. Please also take into consideration that these kids will likely have relationships with their class-mates, given that they're all in the same homeroom. While I'm open to loner type characters and the such, bear in mind that a game full of loners would not make for a very exciting game at all would it?

Birthday: September 9th, 1982
Extracurricular/Hobbies: Football (running-back), Student Council (Vice-President), Painting
Appearance: Attractive, if not slightly plain. Very tall (6'2) and built solid (210lbs), with a fair bit of padding over his strong frame. Diamond shaped face with streamlined features, including noticeably full lips and thick eyelashes. Dark brown eyes and blonde hair. Hair is cut into a crew-cut. Last seen wearing a CHHS Football Jersey, blue jeans, and white sneakers.
History: John is the the youngest of two kids and has a friendly relationship with his elder sister Jane (18). He had a rough childhood with a verbally abusive father whom berated any act that wasn't considered masculine or macho. His parents were divorced when John was 11, with his mother receiving sole custody, and it was hard for him to cope. As a kid, John dealt with bullying and it's something he still fears. Recently became a born again Christian following a pregnancy scare with his girlfriend. John's circle of friends tend are majorly male and frequently athletes like himself, he rarely befriends females that he isn't romantically interested in.
Personality: Because of his background, John is incredibly masculine and is wary to show anything to the contrary. While he's generally level-headed and rational, he has several trigger points that will cause him to lash out, including his upbringing. He's prone his faith-based delusions. Something of an alpha-male, he tries to be the leader and protector in his circle of friends.
Evaluation: John has brute force on his side, as well as rational thinking. John is much for socializing outside his social circle and may have a hard time if he doesn't group with friends. On the island, he's likely to try and form a group with his close friends to eliminate competition, but may show some hesitation due to his religion. He'll aim to be the alpha-male of the group.
