Brief summary: Cihn was born into a not quite rich not quite middle class family, and since he was small his mom would fondly describe him as jaded. He had a solid upbringing that was always at odds with his prissy nature and curt mannerisms, always forgetting to be polite at the first signs of irritation. He never played sports and never learned how to work with others, trusting only himself for no reason other than his nature. He excelled naturally at a few things, academics and music, and to an extent, manipulating people. He never learned how to work and instead relied on fake charms to get what he wanted. When he became a teenager, however, those exact qualities drove him even further from most of his friends. He found the people he actually likes tend to be more sincere, less assuming, not after anything. He tries to be much better but he has a short temper and still feels entitled to things that are not his. He cannot provide for himself. His parents were not mean but they kind of made a little dick.

ZJ (Zachary Johnson) [x]

Age: 17 in the beginning
Grade: 12 in the beginning
Height: 6’7
Hair: black
Style: shaggy, skater length
Body type: lightly muscled
slightly stocky, long limbed
Facial features: masculine features
firm jaw, angled nose
Skintone: tanned
Eye: deep blue
Clothing style: casual clothing
t-shirts and jeans
plain, minimal design; any colour
Brief summary: Born quite poor, ZJ is no stranger to not being able to make ends meet or going without the finer things in life. Growing up, he didn’t have a television or many toys and kept himself entertained with the neighbourhood kids or the books and magazines at home. Due to his mother’s anthropophobia (fear of people), he had to grow up very quickly and even at a young age, he was the one running errands and getting groceries in order to take care of her. When he was old enough to work, he took up multiple part time jobs in order to help pay for bills. As such, his regard toward school became very minimal and he only wished to graduate from high school in order to get a better job. It was due to this that he became a hard working and sympathetic individual. The kind of guy you could ask for help on anything and he would assist – no questions asked. He is a workaholic with simple pleasures and feels most at peace when he is actually doing something. He doesn’t like to sit still. He’s also very much a gentle giant. Always with a quiet smile on a soft expression and is quite laid back. His low energy personality also slips into his speech and thus when he speaks, he often will clip words in his sentence just to make it shorter. He uses a lot of slang and shorthands.
