NAME: Adam Neramani
AGE: 20

ETHNICITY: White Southern Irish.
BUILD: Adam is thin, gaunt in the wrong light. It hasn't been that long since he suffered from anorexia and he's never fully gained the weight back. He's very wiry, almost like a coiled spring, and though thin he is solid with muscle.
EYE COLOUR: Grey/blue
HAIR STYLE: It's now down below his shoulders. Tends to be down or in a ponytail.
PREFERRED DRESS: Anything colourful. He prefers tie-dye, scruffy jeans, shorts and things that hide the scarring on his arms. Tends to have a flower stuck in his hair or a daisy chain and the odd smear of mud. Is also fond of backwards baseball caps.

Reads a lot.
Spends a lot of time outside.
Likes collecting flowers.
Tends to show his affection by hugging everyone.
Heavily medicated.
Is a real flower-child.
Has an odd love of rabbits.
Is generally very happy, if a little switched-off.

TEMPERMENT: Quiet, lovely, kind-hearted, Adam seems to be the complete epitome of a flower-child. He loves the world and everything in it, enough that he seems to have made it his mission to hug all the people. His even temper and need to make people feel better have meant it's easy for him to make friends, though he can be withdrawn if he's having a bad day - or he's had one of his bad nights. Though he's had a terrible start in life, he's grateful to his parents and the doctor he sees regularly for helping him through the worst of it, with only the physical scars to show.

MOTHER'S NAME: Katherine Neramani
AGE: 34
FATHER'S NAME: Ken D. Neramani
AGE: 38

SUSPECT HISTORY: Adam has problems with his memory. He's always suffered from delusions and hallucinations, which were only recently brought under control thanks to his doctor, so he never trusts what he can remember - for instance, he has self-harm scars covering most of his arms and a portion of his legs that he can't remember doing. However, these days he's a lot more lucid, which has meant he doesn't self-harm so much any more. He still has days but they're manageable - mostly.

Other than that, he's had a relatively quiet life once they hit on the right combination of drugs to keep him on the level. He loves his life and his family, and never wants it to change.

Paige Elisabeth Honey

Paige was born and raised in Circle Pines. She was the only daughter of the late mayor and his wife, who were overjoyed at her marriage to local high school basketball star, John Honey. Paige was the prom queen and cheerleading captain when she was in high school, though she remembers being bullied by several ‘outcasts.’ John and Paige bought a little cottage and had their first child, Robert, 9 months to the date after the wedding. John got a job immediately upon graduation as an accountant at his dad’s office. Paige managed to finish her degree at the local university and started teaching Kindergarten at Circle Pines Elementary School. She had their second child, Rachel, 8 months ago. Paige’s mother keeps Rachel during the day so that Paige can continue to enrich lives.

Most notably, there is no pink anywhere in their house, despite having a little girl. That nursery is done in red and black ladybugs with no garments or anything else in the house pink.

When Paige is not busy with 18 kindergartners, she is also a full time soccer mom. She takes Robert to all of his games and practices and makes sure that the team has a homemade snack each time (with fresh squeezed lemonade for the parents too.) Her house is always spotless and despite many claims that the Honeys employs domestic help, Paige actually does it all herself. She always has her hair done, makeup on, and looks spectacular. On the occasion that she does have down time when the children are asleep, she relaxes with John and a good movie on the couch.

As far back as he could remember, Max lived in Circle Pines. According to his parents they lived in a small apartment in the city when he was born, but after his dad got a much better job offer, they moved to Circle Pines, and frankly, according to his parents, they moved to the American dream. Max on the other hand decided that after college, and after saving up enough money with his pizza delivery job, that he'll move to some place else. Some place more exciting. Some place that didn't involve jocks or snarky cheerleaders who looked down on him, even at college.

Date of Birth: August 6th, 1997
Age: 17

One of the most popular and spoiled girls in school, Lucia is perfectly happy with her life.

Human Johnathon is still very much a rebel against the anti-art establishment and corporate greed. Without the bonus of his powers, however, his stunts and installations are far less impressive, though not for the lack of trying. Well-remembered is when he put the car of the principal of his old high-school on top of the school building, claiming a man as detached in mind and spirit from the student body as he should also be so in actuality. No one is quite sure how he did it, though inquiring minds would connect a nearby construction with a crane for the deed, yet how he managed to learn how to utilize a crane still eludes people.
Johnathon’s parents are surprisingly understanding in all of this. Both coming from the psychological field, they adapted a “wait-and-see” approach a long time ago.

Johnathon also has a saint Bernard, named Spot. It is feared for the abnormal amounts of saliva it produces. It has learned how to ride a skateboard, which is one of the primary (and few) legal occupations Johnathon entertains himself with after school. Spot obviously has to use a longboard.

Noriko always has been a hard worker in school and in out of school activities, however, as much as she'd like to be out and always dancing and running about she's always suffered with fatigue. Thanks to this she has odd waves of tiredness ruining her day and can't do what she'd like when it comes to hanging out with all the other people her own age in the neighbourhood.

Other than that she is a boisterous and a happy individual, who's very loyal to her friends and likes a lot of company when she has the energy. With a slight tendency to over react and sudden mood swings she's a little bit of a handful at times for her parent but otherwise she is a good kid.

Name: Scott Simmons
Date of Birth: May 1st, 1987
Age: 28
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 157 lbs
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Green

Personality: Warm and friendly to his family and friends. Very outgoing and self-confident. He likes being in the spotlight and partying. However, he has a darker side; he can be stand-offish and a bit condescending, even downright rude.

History: Recently moved to Circle Pines with his parents, Samantha and Albert (Bert) to help them move into their dream house. But when his job sort of said he could take an extended sabbatical, he ended up working with his father at Bert’s garage, fixing cars. His passion, though are classic motorcycles from WWII. He doesn’t mind the work since it’s basically an all-day workout and he likes fixing things. He and his dad are close so it works well, especially since his dad lets him slack off when he wants to.

Growing up the spoiled, indulged only male heir to the family garage business, he grew up knowing that he was definitely going somewhere to be someone. He is a total athletic jock - even though he’s no longer the captain of his track and field team, he still acts as though he were. He takes pride in his athleticism and fitness, and takes pleasure in ‘nonchalantly’ showing off when he can.

He eats healthily and treats his body like a temple. No junk food. He will drink and smoke socially, though. He drives his parents crazy buying all healthy food items. Somehow, they manage to choke down his lentil stews and quinoa porridge. He knows they have a stash of ‘false food’ hidden somewhere, and one day he will find it and show them how good carob really is.

Name: Jessica Drew
Age: 21, born December 7th
Height: 5'10
Weight: 130 lbs
Eye Colour: Green
Hair Colour: Blonde

Appearance: Typical dancer's build, Jess is slim and carries herself well. Generally wears skirts and blouses and comfortable heels, basically anything she can dance in as she spends a large amount of time at the dance school.

Personality: Confident. Attractive and well cared for, Jessica knows she is more than capable of dealing with most situations and after years of competitions and exams she's used to close scrutiny and being the centre of attention. She is happy to fade into the background in certain social situations and play the dutiful daughter but most of the time she prefers to have eyes on her.

History: Recently moved into Circle Pines, Jessica has installed herself in the estate's dancing class hall. Too tall to be a gymnast, she'd turned to dance in her early teens and excelled picking up the steps quickly and making fast progress in examinations and competitions. She still lives with her parents (Jane and David) but, with a close relationship, she doesn't mind too much. An only child, Jess was less spoiled and more nurtured, encouraged to follow any pursuits that interested her as long as they were respectable. After a few months in Circle Pines, she is settled and making friends easily but her close relationship with her mother persists, regularly doing things together such as visiting salons and visiting neighbours for coffee or tea.

Curt Connors is normal.

He studies a lot, reading scientific text after scientific text, (from medical books to oceanographer's narrated accounts of deep-ocean-discovery) but his favorite subject is zoology.

Curt has a B.A. in Organic Chemistry with a minor in Biology. He is staying with his girlfriend, Linda at Circle Pines. He plans on being there for a year while working for a local company and then into the start of his Masters Degree.

Both his arms are in tact, there was never any car accident. Curt plays piano wonderfully, and often Linda sits in the sunroom just to listen to him play. He is startlingly good for someone who started taking lessons so late in life.

Curt has a dog, a pembrook welsh corgi to be exact, named Reptar. He's not sure why he chose that name, but he likes it a lot.

The worst part about living with his girlfriend is the chores he has. From sweeping to vacuuming, then back to studying or reading his books, plus his life in the lab, Curt has a very busy schedule. Which is fine, Curt likes being busy. It keeps him from thinking about strange things. He gets strange emotions sometimes, urges, to run outside, tear off his clothes, find a deer...
maul it.
Eat it.

He wants to slither into his bed and hide in warmth whenever a light goes on in the early parts of the morning. When he is doing lawn work in the sun, he finds himself wishing he could bask all day in the bright warmth. Once in awhile, when he asks Linda to make his steak really rare, she wonders if he's okay.

"I'm not sure I like the way you look at that steak, Curt." she says with an unsure smile.

"It can't be any worse than how I look at you when you wear that lingerie I bought you..." he says to her, smiling wickedly. She grins back and pats him on the head.
"I bought it, you gave it to me. You couldn't pick out lingerie to save your life."

Name: Clarice Stella Ferguson

Birth Date: 2nd of September, 1997

Height: 6'1"

Hair Colour: Light brown

Eye Colour: Hazel

Nationality: American

Relatives: Mother; Sandra Ferguson-Clark
Father; Thomas Ferguson

Appearance: Tall and athletic, Clarice is a pretty girl. Having spent pretty much her whole life involved in sports she has the body of an Olympic athlete, and all the scars to match. Her features are pretty unusual but complimentary, a result of her very mixed heritage, but she's not really one for obsessive make-up and pretty dresses, going for more of the tomboy look, though with her big eyes and pouting lips, when she wants to, she scrubs up good.

History: Clarice and her parents have been living in Circle Pines for like, ever! Not that she'd wanna live anywhere else, the occasional vacations are all well and good but home is home! Her daddy's the coach of the local high school football team and her momma's a hairdresser. She was always a bit of a tom boy though and followed daddy doing all kinds of sports that have left her all scraped up but with an amazingly fit physique! She looooves all kinds of sports! From running to football to volleyball to kick-boxing! She's sorta let her daddy down in not wanting to follow his footsteps and go into sports, but rather she's looking to get into veterinary school, but he agrees she's smart enough for it!

Outside of that she's like all the other girls her age, now that she's legal she loves a drink and a party, hanging out with he friends and of course, boys! Though she's got her eyes on one boy in particular ...

Name: Paul Martin
Born April 14th
Height: 5'11
Weight: 165 lbs
Build: Jean-Paul possesses a fairly typical runner's build, narrowly made yet still solid enough that he can easily stand his own ground.
Eye Colour: Blue
Hair Colour: Black, streaked with white
Hair Style: It would appear that it simply does what it will but Jean-Paul is vain enough that he does arrange it to appear that casual.

Dress: Definitely casual and not overly cared for. Paul basically gives no shits about keeping anything in decent condition and doesn't give much thought to ruining things like clothes. It's all disposable, right? He doesn't really have to worry about keeping things nice as they're easily replaced so he's rather non-fussed about such things.

Personality: He's a self-centered little prick, that much is certain. Growing up in a family that overly provided for him, Paul never exactly wanted nor learned to empathize with those who didn't have. Actually, he's never really learned to empathize with much of anything. So you have all of the ego from Jean-Paul with none of the compassion that he had cultivated from his past and, in the end, you're basically left with an asshole who's never been told no in his life. Without said past and without his mutation Jean-Paul never exactly got accustomed to being different in any big way either so Paul here is rather conformist, not really tolerating difference in others or himself. So yeah, he's exceedingly closeted on top of being overly selfish.

History: Lifelong natives to Circle Pines, the Martin family has always been comfortably wealthy with the father (Patrick) working for the city and Paul's mother (Lindsay) being a stay at home mother and pretty much a freakish soccer-mom. He has a twin sister (Melissa) who he actually isn't all that close with but she's happy and well, basically what Jean-Paul would want for Jeanne-Marie though he would be much closer to her. He made decent enough grades though he's a rather directionless graduate now but that really hasn't seemed to bother him much at all. He's enrolled in classes he mostly skips but coasts through all the same. Mainly, however, Paul is about his sports, training mostly in track and skiing which he is quite obsessed with.
