Alexandria "Alex" Turner.
Sixteen years old.
Alex has a short temper from feeling abandoned by her family. Overall, she can be a nice person that can hold a proper conversation but she's always ready to fight, always ready for someone to offend her or her family. She's very defensive, walking on eggshells around people and keeping to herself a lot. She doesn't let out her life's personal information, afraid it'll be used against her or twisted into some stupid rumor. It takes her some getting use to a person to fully relax around them and let some of her past life out. It takes a while for her to trust someone and warm up to them.
Towards people she knows pretty well, she's still careful but she has a very dry sense of humor, she's very sarcastic and gets like that more so when she's angry. She cries very easily when mad and she hates that, considering it was put in her head crying is a weakness and something she shouldn't do. She has a tendency to bottle up her feelings, not wanting anyone to see them, and so she lets it all build up till one little thing makes her explode. When she's angry, she's always ready to hit something, and it's usually the thing that made her mad. She's never had a boyfriend, not even her first kiss, and so she doesn't know how to act around guys. She doesn't know how react to flirting and can be quite awkward in that situation and so she tries to avoid them or leave them be.
Alex's parents divorced when she was the young age of five. Her older brother, who is two years older than her, took it harder than she did. For some time, she went back and forth between her parent's house; her brother stayed at her father's while she lived with her mother most of the time. She always got along with her brother, they were quite close, but he started to get into drugs and drinking and partying. She began to see him less and less at school and when she started high school, she had stopped going to her father's, since he had cut ties with her mother and wouldn't answer her calls. She knew he was probably just busy with her out of control brother. Her mother also didn't want her around that "bastard's son" either. Alex always had to listen to her mother rant and ramble about her father and brother, which hurt but she always tried to just keep quiet.
So far, her days in high school had been horrible. Considering her brother was two years older than her, he was a senior, and barely at school. She thought he dropped out, she sees him so rarely, but hasn't gotten the chance to ask him. Rumors spread about him and even her, causing problems for her high school days. She use to be a great student, straight As, but after she had gotten into her first fist fight over someone badmouthing her brother, everything went down hill. She began to fight more, always defensive of her brother and herself, and ready to throw fists. Her mother didn't know what to do but each time she tried to talk to her, Alex would blow up and her mother stopped trying to get through to her. Her mother just deemed her another "hopeless child" and just concentrated on working and providing for the house. She feels as if she's lost her father and brother at the same time. Even her mother, since her mother barely talks to her now and only talks to her when need be. She smokes and sometimes drink but she tries to not do it often, considering there's enough rumors about her brother being a druggie and alcoholic. She doesn't care about her grades though and does sneak out to go to parties. She's always sneaking out, never openly showing her mother she's leaving because she knows that'll only cause problems.
