Kyle has short brown hair and big brown eyes, generally there is nothing special about him. But yes, his did dye his hair, he used to have blond hair like his brother, Robert, but he decided to dye it to brown, a darker color during his 6th year. People will describe him as pale, which is true because sometime he works too hard on his school work and never ends up getting enough sleep.

Fears
Cats: he is just scared of them, apparently because his animal sign is a mouse

Disappointing his parents: although his parents are dead, he still believe they are watching him from above and he hopes he will not disappoint him

Losing his brother: Robert is the only family he has and he can't afford to lose him
Secret
He seems like a harsh older brother as the outer world sees him, very cold and ignoring. However, he doesn't tell anyone the reason he acts that way is to train his brother, asking him to be independent.

Personality
Kyle is a very closed in person you generally don't see him talk to anyone with the exception of a couple of close friends. His quietness may scare you a bit and think of him as a cold person but really if you get to know what he is thinking inside, you'll find that he is a very kind and caring person, it's just that he doesn't show it. With him being affected by his parent's death and his good friends disappearance, he really feels that he wants to constrain himself and not feel anything toward anyone because he afraid to lose the people he love. Although he may be cold to you, but there is always a factor within him that might potentially care about you, but he just doesn't want to admit it.
However, despite his quietness, you always notice his efforts, and trust me when it comes to school and grades he definitely is one of the top and expects a lot out of himself. If you were to measure the effort a normal students puts into his assignment, then he will put double or even triple amount of effort just to make his work perfect, and better than the others.

History
Born in a "normal" British family Kyle has been in a very happy family with a younger brother, Robert y. However, his happiness did not last. At the age of 5, his parents were shot by an unknown man, for unknown reasons. When the murders tried killing him, they missed and instead shot him in the arm which is what left him his scar, after being shot, the killer tried killing his brother, but the two were saved by their neighbor. He and his brother were then sent to an orphanage and later were adopted by the a homosexual couple, Mitchell and Joseph, which is how they got their middle names, in honor and to pay thanks to them.

While he grew up, he showed weird signs....he could see into the past, not just his past, but everyone else's. Whether it's a rich man's affair with another women, or his owl's family's death. It frightened him a lot being haunted by his past. He tried to control it, but it couldn't be controlled. Mitchell and Joseph tried to send him see a psychiatrist,
While they attended normal school, at the age of 11(10 in Robert's case) they received an admissions letter from Eltz Academy. It took a while before Mitchell and Joseph decided to send him and his brother to this school. However during the next few years, the academy became his home. Before he turned so quiet, he actually was very sociable but during his 6th year here one of his good friends, Katherine went missing on a mission while working with the Order. He lost himself back to darkness, and generally locking him away from the people that were once close to him. He now decides to work with the order hoping to find her one day.

Theme Song
"Not Just You"-Cody Simpson

Darling,
I know your heart's seen better times.
I know our songs had better rhymes.
Before today, no...

Darling,
I guess I made the wrong mistakes.
I understand if you need your space.
Please take your time.
Before you go away, so far away,
You need to realize.

Baby, it's not just you.
You know it hurts me too.
Watching you leave,
With tears on your sleeve
Don't you notice that mine aren't exactly dry?

Baby, it's not just you.
That's hurting,
It's me too.

I'm sorry,
I wasn't there to catch the fall.
I didn't hear you when you've called,
All of those nights.

Please don't forget the good days with me.
I can make back the heart aching beat
When it gets dark and it's hard to see,
I'll turn on the lights.

Before you go away, so far away
I really need you to know.

Baby it's not just you.
You know it hurts me too.
Watching you leave,
With tears on your sleeve
Don't you notice that mine aren't exactly dry?

Baby, it's not just you
That's hurting
Hey, it's me too

I'm not giving up,
You don't have to leave,
I am willing to beg 'til I break my knees,
I believe in us,
Don't give up on me,
Girl I know that you're hurting.
And I'm sorry for the pain,
I promise that I'll change,
Forgive me, forgive me.

Baby it's not just you.
You know it hurts me too.
Watching you leave,
With tears on your sleeve
Don't you notice that mine aren't exactly dry?
(not exactly dry, baby)
Baby, it's not just you.
You know it hurts me too.
We had it all
How could we fall,
Baby I thought we would never die.

Baby, it's not just you
That's hurting
It's me too

Baby, it's not just you
That's hurting
It's me too

Baby, it's not just you
Baby, it's not just you
Baby, it's not just you
It's me too

When he felt a sudden lick on his face, Robert realized Husky needs to stop licking people's faces while they sleep. Robert rubbed his eyes, until he finally got his conscious back, after sleeping in everyday for the past few days, he realized it's about time he continued to be productive with his work. The past few weeks, he and Anna had been working on the freshman orientation plan, which took them quite a while to finish. Which was why he needed the break.
The first thing he did was turn on his phone, when a soft ring indicated that he had a message after several rings, oh great....that was how many messages? never again does he believe in turning his phone off for several days is a good idea.

Flipping through, he sees two messages from Anna asking whether he could pick her up at the coffee shop. Realizing that he is late he quickly typed back

"Sure, will be there in a second, just woke up :D "

After pressing send, he quickly went through his closet only to find a Oxford shirt and a navy blue blazer that fits him before setting out to the coffee shop. He has to admit, school has started and he is surely going to miss his full time summer job as a barista in the coffee shop. Although he would still drop by the store sometimes, but it's time to move onto freshman orientation. Every year, you get at least 50 of them who have no idea what they are doing here, or still thinks this is Hogwarts. Surely, we are somewhat like Hogwarts but hey at least Eltz is cooler.

Walking down the corridor, it seemed as if everyone is out of the dorms and busy getting ready for school, since it's so quiet. However, his attention was broken by another sudden beep of a text message sent in by his brother, Kyle.

"Hey Robert, do you have time tonight for dinner? let's take sometime to catch up"

Let's honest, it's quite surprising, two brothers that grew up together depending on each other, and yet there is always a big gap between them, that they need a dinner to catch up with each other. Thinking back, his brother despite being only 1 year older, there is nothing that makes him more experienced in life than Robert is.. no sports, hardly any friends, just always a cold face and an internship at who knows where

However, thinking back it's already been almost 45 days since they've talked. So he replied

"Yes, I do I'll make sure to come, can I bring Anna?"

With the response returned
"Sure, I'll probably ask Lucy to come as well, we all need sometime to catch up with each other"

He tapped a message to Anna:
"Annie! I am on my way right now to pick you up, by the way are you free tonight? My brother is asking me to go to dinner and catch up....I desperately need emotional support because I have a feeling the connection there would really awkward....or worse, out of hand...please even Husky says you should :D "

Another thing he has to admit....previously there has been cases where umm.....a dinner had gone wrong and both parties went screaming at other. Which is why every time from that time on, Robert will bring Anna as his support.

After putting his phone back into his pocket, he continued down the hall, into the elevator and down to the parking lot.

Knocking on the door to the headmaster Ryan's office, Kyle heard a response.
"Enter please"
Slowing opening the tall wooden door to the room, he entered the office. The room was filled with shelves of hardcover books, and different magical items that scattered on the table. Surely that was what he was expecting a headmaster's office to be like, a room filled with knowledge and science. However, he directed his attention back to the headmaster when he said:
"Oh, Kyle it's great to see you, I was actually expecting you"
Puzzled, by what the headmaster was speaking about, Kyle asked "Sir, What do you mean by you are expecting me"
"Well, I do realize you wanted to become an official member and work at the order before you graduate, is that right? "
"Yes, sir that is correct"
"Well, for permanent spot in the order, we usually only take alumnus, however, I would need to discuss it with the other member to see what they think before actually coming to an conclusion about the offer. However, I pretty much can guarantee you that you'll mostly likely be able to work with us next year when you graduate. Right now, to be honest we are actually thinking about putting you on the team of students for a special mission, but nothing is final yet" Headmaster Ryan explained

After exiting the headmaster office, Kyle felt a sudden pain in his head, a clear site of the day that Katherine, his girlfriend had embarked on her first mission for the order. Just as he heard the words "I'll be back in a couple of weeks, wait for me" from Katherine, the image disappeared and he was simply facing the same hallway he was facing. Again the thing with katherine was that nobody knew what she was doing, which is why nobody knew what happened to her when she didn't return.

Then he realize he has some freshman orientation plans that need to be discussed with Eleanor, so he sent a text to her
"Hey, Eleanor I was just wondering how the freshman orientation plans are going, I was thinking we could give a brief introduction to what their responsibilities are"

Proceeding down the hall he received a text from his brother, Robert saying he wanted his girlfriend, Annabelle to come to the dinner. Kyle has never really had a problem with Robert dating, he just hopes that Robert doesn't get too caught up with his relationship and forget about his career. He simply tapped a message saying "Sure, I'll probably ask Lucy to come as well, we all need sometime to catch up with each other"

After that he tapped another message to Lucinda, his childhood friend, inviting her to dinner
"Hey Lucy, You think you have time to have dinner tonight with me and Robert, we really need to catch we haven't talked for the whole holiday"

Tiffany let out a sigh as she stared at her notebook. No ideas were coming to her. It was so hard to find a decent prank that won't get her in trouble or killed. This is why she needed Astrid. She was good at coming up with things like that. She could pull a prank on Lucy, Her reaction in the end was always hilarious. But people liked her too much. They would be all over Tiffany. It was a huge mess that she didn't want to deal with at this current time. Annabelle was also fun to prank, but Astrid had a strict no-no on that one as well. Which didn't leave very many choices. When Astrid shows up she could as her.

"What are you planning, Tiff?" Speak of the devil Tiffany thought. She looked up at her friend. There was a devious smirk on her chest that made her very happy. It meant that Astrid was ready to plan a prank. "Nothing! I can't think of anyone decent to prank," Tiffany said shutting the notebook. They have practically pranked everyone and done every prank known to man. Coming up with a new one was going to be hard. Astrid took a spot near the windowsill just as Tiffany has done.

Then a thought came to her head. Freshman. It was always easy to prank the freshman. And they could do small simple things that won't cause too much damage. "Tiff, if you had the choice between someone you really like and someone you have sex with, who would you choose?" Tiffany raised and eyebrow up at Astrid. Where the hell did that question come from? she thought to herself. They didn't really have conversations like this, but Tiffany did have an answer. "Someone I like. The sex would be ten times better." she replied opening the trick not book back up. Now she had an idea of who she wanted to prank.

Some kid came over and gave Astrid a drink and it made her laugh. Astrid practically had the entire school wrapped around her tiny little finger. Except for Tiffany. They always had this mini battle of popularity. Neither of them will follow each other around like little lap dogs. But when they are together, they are force that shouldn't be reckoned with. "So, what's the plan, mi amiga?" her friend asked of her. "We prank all the new freshman. They won't see it coming and it is a great welcoming gift" she said with a smile. "I just don't know what the prank should be."

Jeremiah's attention was still on the other girls. Lucy wasn't jealous, she just wanted to get out of the cafeteria. Of course not being rude, she was going to let Jeremiah talk to the girls as long as he wants. It was a trait that Lucy wish she didn't have. If she was a rude bitch like most everyone already thinks she is, then Jeremiah and her would have already left the cafeteria. A sigh escaped her lips and she looked down at the ground as they spoke. Just then a guy crashed into one of the girls. It was Quinn. Head of her house. They didn't talk much, but it isn't like they would want to talk to each other. They could barely talk to other people. But now there was one girl left that needed to be gone. Just then her phone vibrated. It was from Kyle. Which is strange since Lucy was just thinking about him.

He was inviting her to dinner with him and his brother, Robert. And where Robert goes, Annabelle follows. So it was a dinner of four. Two people, Lucy cared about and one that Lucy won't even give a second thought too. Nothing could possibly go wrong. Except for everything. She sighed and send a reply back. She wasn't going to reject them. They were the closet thing to a 'family' that she could get. She was going to go to this dinner.

To:Kyle
From:Lucy
Dinner sounds good


The message sent and she pocketed the phone. Her entire day was booked up. Breakfast with Jeremiah. Lunch with Kian. Dinner with Kyle and Robert. Today she was miss popular. Wonder what Tiffany would have to day about that. she thought. She turned her head to look at Tiffany and saw that she was talking to Astrid. Her only friend. They were always plotting something. Many time Tiffany has tried pranking her, but it has ended badly for her. And now Lucy knows what their pranks look like. Turning her head back to Jeremiah she saw that he wasn't moving from his spot. And this other girl was going to continue talking to him. Just then she made eye contact with her other friend. Kian. Finally someone was coming to save her.

She stepped away from Jeremiah and started walking toward him. He was moving toward her as well and they eventually met in the middle. The automaton facade that she put up for the girls had gone away. Her bright green eyes had a bit of happiness and relief filled in it. Her thoughts were coming back in a random fashion and she didn't know how to handle her thoughts moving that fast. But she didn't let that show. She gave her friend a small smile. "Hey" she said simply. "We weren't supposed to meet until lunch," she joked.

As they were with the girl, Eleanor felt her phone in her back pocket. When she looked at the text, it was from the head boy of her house, Kyle.

"Hey, Eleanor I was just wondering how the freshman orientation plans are going, I was thinking we could give a brief introduction to what their responsibilities are"


The girl didn't take long to reply before putting her phone back in her pocket.

The plans are going well but, we may have to meet up to just make sure everything is okay.


The two were as close as the two could be, seeing that they were both a bit closed off to the idea of getting close to a lot of people. It wasn't easy for them to as close as her and Jimmy were. But, like most of the head students of the other houses, Eleanor felt something for him and she would be lying if she said that she never wondered what it would be like to be with him and actually be more than friends. Then she would remember who exactly she was; She was Eleanor Sinclair, a girl who really liked her space from most people, a girl who never liked letting people touch her, but more than anything. She was the girl who's father left her to be with an abusive mother and would constantly remind the young girl that she was nothing special. Nothing but a mistake that couldn't be erased or taken back and after awhile she began believing it herself and has ever since.

Not long after them going over to the girl, Eleanor's anxiety began to form and Jimmy more than likely could tell which was why he just gave the girl his number before walking away with Ellie by his side as they headed inside to hopefully make Jimmy's forming migraine more tolerable.

When they made their way to a vacant hallway, Eleanor just sat across from the best friend on the large window as the two began chatting, about random things. In all honesty, Eleanor just wanted to get his mind off of the migraine and hopefully make him feel better. She wasn't used to seeing him like this and she never wanted to see it again. But, it wasn't long until he was curled up in pain and cried out. She bent down and put her hand his back as she tried to find out what was wrong. Her eyes darted from his eyes and the empty hallway around them before looking back at her friend as he talked to her. "E-el, E-el-lie, the roo-roo-room, there." She didn't even say a word as she helped him up to his feet and helped him to his room. She had been in the room a few times when she was trying to find her best friend. She laid him on the bed and stayed by his side as she waited for him to return to normal.

She wasn't used to seeing this happen to him but, she wasn't going to let it scare him into leaving him to suffer through it himself. Nothing would make her leave him like this. She walked in front of him before bending down to meet his eyes with hers. She offered him a small smile as she put one hand through his hair to move it off of his forehead and away from his face as he tried to stop his hyperventilating. "Just breath in and out, Jamie. Everything's fine. Just take your time and if you feel like something's about to happen, let me know." She assured him as she moved her hand back to her side and watched him carefully, making sure that if something bad was going to happen, she was going to be right there. But, for now all she could do is wait for him to show signs of being okay.

Walking near her, Robert saw Annabelle sleeping, he didn't want to wake her but considering the school hour is approaching soon, he walked near her. She just shot up super cautiously, he laughed "get up, sleepyhead, you can go sleep on the car" and yes, of course he meant it considering the school was a while away from the coffee shop.

Watching her get cozy in the passenger seat, he laughed, she is just so adorable, it's hard to believe they been with each other since forever.

"How was your morning" she asked
"Well, you know the usual" laughing, of course...he didn't want her to find out about him sleeping in, and not eating breakfast, because he has a feeling someone is going to start lecturing him about breakfast being the most important meal of the day.
"What about you?" he asked, changing the topic.
After hearing the answer he said "thank you for coming to dinner again with my brother and I don't know where I'll be without you, I need to make you up a dinner sometime just the two of us"
Until he just remembered he is just sitting in the car, not driving...oops....running late need to get started
"You look really tired get some sleep, you'll need it, considering there is so many classes to come"

Looking at Eleanor's response, he realized he has to find time for it before the Freshmen decides to go crazy around the halls, well maybe not crazy, but hey that is what all freshmen do. Get a little crazy and use the fact that they are new as an excuse, trust me Kyle has actually done something like that. During his first year with Katherine...things got a bit out of hand, they did end up getting butterbeer on their bedsheets, but from then on they realized the serious consequences of their actions, so they never ended up doing anything of that sort there, and look where he is now.

Walking down the hall he replied to Eleanor:
"so when do you have time to meetup to discuss it? you know the first few days are always hectic. Give me a call if you can"

Again continuing down the hall he wanted to find somewhere to go, but it seems the school is still so quiet besides the loud noises made by the freshmen in a distance maybe that is why the headmaster's room is always so distant from the other buildings, it's keeps it quiet. If he ever works here, he'll want to teach....well he hasn't thought about that because right now he only has one goal, get into the order and work like one his respected "idols" Samuel Lively. He had been an alumni a couple of years back but Kyle has never really talked to him back then since he was pretty young, and didn't know much about the order.

Before he realized it, his phone begun beeping again
this time it was Lucy
"Dinner sounds good"
"Great! Thanks, I'll text you the details. don't know how the dinner will be without you, I have a feeling Robert might overreact again...he really needs to learn how to grow up, I have a feeling he hasn't eaten breakfast yet, could you text him and remind him for me, I have a feeling if I texted him he would get angry and decide not to listen to me" he text back

Robert sure has an attitude for not listening to his brother, it's true....

Tiffany love Astrid with to the full extent of whatever she believes about love, but when it came to popularity, they became instant rivals that it was almost funny. A new guy walked back asking them for assistance and it was like Astrid completely forgot that Tiffany was sitting next to her. Plotting the evil things they were going to do to freshman. Tiffany smirked to herself and stood up with the two others.

"Astrid,"
"Vassi, nice to meet you"

"I'm Tiffany," she attempts to pitch in, but it seems that Astrid has the boy's full attention, so she waits for an opportunity to go in and steal him away. Not that she wanted him. Although he was very cute. A complexion the resembled her own. Pearly whites and tall. All the things Tiffany finds attractive. "I suppose you're new here, considering I've never seen you before." Sounds like flirting, but Tiffany knew Astrid. Astrid just wants her popularity to be known and to do that, she gets people to like her. Yea, you could say that, you are the second person I've met all day." 'Guess that makes me third..' she thinks to herself. But he wasn't paying attention to her. "Thank you for this by the way, it was really nice of you to help me, I guess I kinda owe you a favor now."

Tiffany had to refrain from rolling her eyes. She sat back down at the table pretending as if she never saw the two. She would ge t her chance to speak to him and win the spotlight, but not while Astrid was present. She was way too fast and Tiffany liked to work slow. So she sits there and waits.

Lucy didn't speak for the entire twenty minutes that Kian was talking about the book. She petted the cat that was occupying her lap. This was a regular thing. Kian has a conversation with himself while she keeps the cat company. It was a nice deal. They could be alone without feeling lonely. Lucy liked it and it seemed that Kian did too since he was always initiated that times they would hang out. Eventually he stopped talking, ending his explanation. She processed everything that he was saying and then nodded to signal that she understood everything she said. Which she did.

For a moment they sat in silence as Lucy tried to come up with a response. Talking to Kian wasn't easy. He always had stories to tell and interesting things to say, but when it was Lucy's turn she didn't even come close. Which is another reason why she just listens. Interacting with other people wasn't always her thing. She enjoyed the background. It was comfortable. Easier to cope with. She was able to hide her demons in there. Where no one would try and look for them. 'What was I just thinking about....dang it..' she reprimands to herself. Her runaway thoughts always get the best of her in the worse situation.

She sipped her coffee. Lucy was more of a tea gal, but she enjoyed to occasional cup that she happens to only drink around Kian. "What other interesting things have you done recently?" I offer. Maybe that will spark up another lecture. Or result in her having to give out details of her life. She doesn't do that. Or at least doesn't plan too. Her cellphone goes off and she checks it quickly. It's from Kyle. She starts a message.
To: Kyle
From: Lucy
Sure. And Robert will grow up eventually


The message was sent and I started to compose another. To Robert.
To: Robert
From:Lucy
Eat Breakfast.

The message was short. Simple. And gets to the point. No need for a hello. Robert knew me better than that. Finally done with the cellular device, Lucy puts it in her pocket and directs her attention back to Kian.
