Ravielle 'Elle' Gullory
Mellow, aloof, lackadaisical; these are the words one would use to describe a strange character like Ravielle. Half the time it's as if she's on another planet, often locked in heated debates within herself about the nature of life with that same expression half way between a smile and neutrality. She's hard to decipher, a bit evasive, soft-spoken, and down to earth, although her savvy is what makes her so easy to approach, whether it be in physical or intellectual pursuits Ravi will always give her advice, but be wary that she will not take sides. She is a very spiritual person who feels most at balance within the confines of locations like forests, beaches, and swamps, making most of her days spent wandering around the campus, or caught in meditation. Most of these activities have caused frequent tardiness, and at times the slip of her grades. Ravielle is noted with having a carefree attitude, meaning that she tends to forget or even ignore responsibilities in place of her own hedonistic activities which usually strike trouble for her.
She is a humanitarian at heart, and seems to enjoy helping others when needed, even sometimes to the point to which it interferes with her own life. Her compassion, and kindness are sometimes used against her and she has been a victim of being stepped on many times because of her vulnerability to absorb the problems and feelings of others. Because of this she purposely drifts away from others, in fear that they would use her the same way others have. She is easily amused by the nuances of everyday life, and she tries not to sweat the small stuff. Ravielle is typically seen as spaced out but is much deeper than most would think. Without any time to drift, she can become overwhelmed and depressed, even to the point of anxiety attacks or nervous breakdowns, most don't realize that her tendency to drift and daydream is vital to her well being. In her company, many feel calm and relaxed around her giving others the feeling that they could tell her anything without being judged. She is also not one to deny the desires of the flesh, usually these desires are frugal and they rarely border past the need of food not found normally near her despite her apparent gift for cooking.

She was always the weird kid who; whenever there was a stray bug or animal that wandered into the class she'd be the first to calmly respond and send the thing outside with little hysteria, unlike all the other younger children. From an early age, Ravielle was seen as a slow thinker, having very slackish reactions to everyday things. Early on, this was seen as a sign of maturity compared to her peers, but later it was seen more as a disadvantage as she found herself constantly teased for her mellow behavior and her short attention span. Not even her father is truly sure of the reasons behind her mellow nature, and he doesn't seem all too interested in altering it since he himself is nearly the same.
Quite obviously, Ravielle was someone who was raised in a beach setting close to nature, with her father being parent she had a tendency to be rather independent from the forces around her. It was difficult growing up around people who naturally titled her as being 'too weird' or 'out there'. but she digressed, there was nothing that could change who she was. Now, as a junior in St Peterson High her persona is normally associated with ganja, and hippies, something that she doesn't entirely understand herself, but it tends to attract the wrong type of people getting the wrong types of ideas.
Obviously a vegan, but has little qualms with those who choose to eat otherwise.
Enjoys the finer things in life, and has no problem with causal relationships or drug usage.
Dresden is an eccentric, passionate, young man who at first is seemingly moody, but once entered into a conversation he turns out to be a rather knowledgeable and down to earth person. Most of the time you'll find Dresden furiously scribbling on parchment of some kind trying to write down lyrics or strumming his acoustic guitar, he's a talented musician, and takes the guitar as a frequent hobby. He is seen as quiet and moody, or at least to those who neglect to talk to him. In another sense, Dresden is an intensely focused individual, whenever there is something he sets his mind to he never falters to reach that goal, his will is strong, and is not easily disassembled by doubts or insults. Dresden is liked more for his unwavering loyalty to those he deems worthy and his trustworthiness, as well as his bravery for being openly pansexual. He keeps a leveled head above himself, and has little qualms with students around the school, he is largely known for his strong personality. At times, the young man is seen as having a chilled demeanor but is otherwise distant, his true passions only showing through the tangle of lyrics on each of his songs or the strums of his guitar. In relationships, he isn't one to go flirting about as evidenced by his reluctance to go out to parties. He favors security and stability, being such, strangely Dresden has always been comfortable with who he is, and cares little for being judged.
Dresden is someone who shows comfort in the familiar and can become fearful when faced with a foreign element. He is very possessive, and shown to be a little too clingy as mentioned by past boyfriends and girlfriends, although he is reported to be very sensual and loving. He is often delusional with the grandeur of romance, thinking it will come to him like the strum of a guitar, but fails to fix his own personal problems first. One very serious problem with his personality is his rare explosive anger which is not something to tamper with, often times when this anger is attempting to leak out he'll storm off in the opposite direction to sort himself out, a coping method introduced by his father. His father has helped him sort out some issues since childhood, though it is implied that the two still have something of a strained relationship since his his parents divorce, otherwise, the single child lived a relatively normal life.

Dresden; always something of a elusive kid, had little problems fitting into cliques that readily accepted him because of his looks. From an early age people often overlooked his inner qualities, and always expected him to act or be a certain way, which in turn made him distant from even his closest friends, in fact to this day there is hardly anyone who can recall his birthday, or him even mentioning it. Dresden was born into a religious, docile family, and such principles made a strong impression on the young man, it also made him much more confident and headstrong, yet reserved and moody in his own way. There was nothing that Dresden was ever ashamed to admit, rather he felt that there was no need to disperse anymore information than necessary as long as wasn't bothered for it.
At this point in high school, the secret of his sexuality, came through an exploitation of events surrounding him, and he was quick to admit to it. Yet, surprisingly despite admitting it, his losses were small, but at this stage even he can tell that others are either uncomfortable with him, or distant. Even now, he wonders just how he'll get through his senior year.
Is often walking around campus with a guitar, playing it, or carrying it.
Has a love for dogs, especially Newfoundland Dogs.
Learns concepts slowly, but is very intelligent once he wraps his head around things.
Listens to all types of music, RnB being his personal favorite.
Is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
