So, redid my concepts!
- Third Generation German, Hannah is my roughest idea so far. I know that she is going to be a history buff of some sort. Judging by her sorta awkward appearance (Hannah has a really long neck and really thick glasses) she isn't much liked by the dudes. Which she desperately wants to change. I'm really considering it being a running gag of sorts through pregame or something, Hannah attempting to find someone who likes her. She's rather abrasive, but very smart. She's also a gamer in her spare time, and I've been toying with the idea of having her participating in historical reenactments or something along those lines.
- Oswaldo hasn't changed from my initial idea, at least not that much. He's the son of well known author, Salvador Marx who specializes in writing Fantasy. This is just a pen name, but Salvador is quite the character, and legally had his name changed to his pen name. Oswaldo was a perfectly healthy kid, albeit afflicted with a very odd name. At some point in his childhood, probably around six, a fire broke out at the Marx house. Oswaldo was burned extremely badly, most notably on the left side of his face and required intensive surgeries, skin grafts, all kinds of stuff. Because of this, he has a near crippling fear of flames and fire, and he goes to a therapist for this. This fire also took the life of Oswaldo's mom. Now, Salvador was never the most rational sort of guy. Being an artist, Salvador tried to vocalize his pain, writing a manuscript for his next novel that dealt with his grief and his wife. This book went on to become his biggest selling hit. Salvador, immensely pleased with it, wrote another. And another. At this point, his franchise is going strong and he's winning awards all over the world for his books.
For Oswaldo unfortunately, this means he has to deal with a mary sue-ish version of the mother he barely knew. He has to live day to day with the fact that his father, still pained over the death of his wife, only finds comfort in this make-believe character. He has to go through school knowing that most people who've read his father's books know his mother better than he ever did, and know the explicit details of how she died. And of course, Oswaldo has to deal with people who gush over his father's work, or worse still, attempt to sympathize with him or relate to him and the story of his fathers books.
At this point, Oswaldo absolutely despises his father and his writing. Oswaldo himself is a decent story teller, but he has shut down that aspect of himself in response to his fathers works. Salvador doesn't know why Oswaldo despises him to this degree, and tries his best to relate and communicate with his son.
To put it lightly, his relationship with his dad is not something to be joked about. Only Os' closest pals have a hint of all this. On the outside, Oswaldo is a happy boy, despite all his pains. He enjoys drinking, hanging out with his friends, biking in the forests, and is a total romantic when it comes to girls. He's not much of a ladies man, but he tries his hardest. Just don't mention his Dad's books, or fire.
- Bluhg, I got tired. I'll do Nolan tomorrow.
