Description

Image
Image

Name:
Eleanor Johanna Madden

Nickname:
Elle

Age:
17

Birthday:
December 13th

Year:
Senior | 12th Grade

Role:
The Moral Compass




Image
Secrets:
  • Her mother slept with multiple school staff members on multiple occasions in order to get Elle into the school.

  • Elle is emotionally abused at home by her parents. They've become increasingly controlling of her life since she began at the school, but she is too scared to say anything to anyone.

  • She suffers from anxiety due to her home life and copes by drawing. However, a lot of these drawings are a bit... off... She doesn't want anyone, especially her parents, to find them and think she's disturbed.

  • Her father, Robert, is not her biological father. Her biological father was killed in a car crash shortly before she and her sister were born. Her mother married her lover shortly after. Eleanor is unaware of this.



Image
Appearance:
Elle stands at 5' 3" and weighs about 117 lb. Her dark brown hair, though it can appear black in some lighting, frames her face and contrasts her pale skin. It falls to her waist and is slightly wavy. She prefers not to put it up as it's too much of a hassle. Her eyes are green.

As far as her style, she prefers simple, elegant, and comfortable clothing to anything flashy or revealing. She uses a light amount of makeup and despite what multiple friends and family members think, she does not have her ears pierced. Eleanor almost always wears a necklace given to her by her parents.




ImageImage
Personality:
Eleanor is an intelligent, observant, and introverted young lady. She prefers being on the sidelines, watching and listening, rather than being the center of attention. Though she may come off as cold to others, those who get to know her will find a fiercely loyal and humour loving friend. A realist, Elle sees things for what they are and has a tendency to be somewhat blunt. Her self-confidence has begun to diminish thanks to her parents and her anxiety has only been increasing.


Likes:
  • Observing/Listening to Others
  • Tea and Sweets
  • Photography and Drawing
  • Animals (Especially Dogs)
  • Movies
Dislikes:
  • Being the Center of Attention
  • Coffee and Spicy Foods
  • Insects and Spiders
  • Arrogance
  • The Influence of Money on People
Hopes:
  • To Make Her Parents Proud
  • To Get Into a Good College for Photography
  • To Find Love and Get Married
  • To Stay Out of Trouble/Away From Drama
  • To Have Her Photography Published
Fears:
  • Disappointing Her Parents
  • Being Replaced/Sent Away/Rejected
  • Being Trapped (Emotionally or Physically)
  • Never Finding Love
  • Death

History:
Eleanor and her identical twin Avery were born to Jillian Lowe and her lover (soon to be husband) Robert Madden on a windy December morning. Her father Edward had been killed in a car accident two months prior to their birth. Despite this, Jillian married Robert shortly after the girls' births and he adopted them as his own. To this day, Eleanor doesn't know that her father is not biologically related to her.

The girls had a happy childhood. They lived in Vermont until the age of 5, when the family moved to Woodside, Queens to be closer to Robert's parents. Her parents were also looking for new opportunities in the form of Robert's job as a financial advisor and Jillian's job as an event planner. Thanks to the move, Elle was able to meet DJ and Mel.

Life got more complicated as time went on. Drawn in by the allure of some of their wealthier clients, her parents' attitudes and priorities began to change. They became concerned with their financial status more than anything else. It became normal for the twins to spend more time at their grandparents' or friends' houses than their own. During this time, Elle coped with her parents' absence by taking up an interest in drawing and photography. Avery, however, took up an interest in boys and drugs. Avery's grades began to fall and their parents finally took notice of them again.

Less than satisfied with her grades and behaviour, Avery was sent to live with Jillian's parents in Vermont when the girls were 15. Hoping to add to their family's potential, as well as make up for Avery's mistakes, Jillian and Robert began pushing Elle into becoming their golden child. Intent on her attending a prestigious school as well as mingling with New York's elite, they began looking into her attending Constance St. Jude Preparatory School. Though the school was much too expensive for them, they felt that Elle's good grades would merit a sizable scholarship. She did receive a scholarship, but not nearly as much as her parents had been hoping for. As a result, her mother slept with multiple staff members in order for Elle to receive a higher scholarship amount as well as secure her place at the school.

By the time all of this had occurred, it was the winter of her junior year. She transferred rather suddenly to Constance St. Jude, but thankfully had DJ and Mel there to help her become acquainted with the strange world of the elites. She hasn't found it to be very interesting, rather she's disgusted by it. The world of rich kids using each other and their parents' money for their own gain is somewhat sad and reminds her of why she's there: her parents' lust for money and a "good future" for her. Despite this, she's still using this an opportunity to get into a good college for Photography.

Though her school life is rather uneventful, the drama of her home life has only increased. Her parents were hard on her before, but now they've have become increasingly controlling of her life. Her parents have threatened to send her away too if she doesn't live up to their standards. They've also told her that she could easily be replaced by Avery and nobody would know or care that she was gone. However, she is too scared to say anything to anyone about the emotional abuse she's been suffering.

This year, Elle is hoping to remain unscathed by her peers or Gossip Girl. (She can't expect as much from her parents.) If only things were that simple here in the world of Manhattan's elite.

Gossip Girl
Hey Upper East Siders,
Something tells me this will be a fun year for us.
Spotted: Aubree Koch at Grand Central. A sudden disappearance makes for a sudden reentry. What's our former Queen B been up to for the past year? And now that she's here will she be taking back her crown? Did her pals miss her or will she get the cold shoulder? Stick with me and you'll find out.

Xoxo,
Gossip Girl

Aubree Koch

It was weird being back. After a year of being away everything looked the same but so different at the same time. Its like she was seeing it through new eyes, a new perspective. She didn't know whether that was a good thing or not but she hoped it was good.

She made her way of the train. She could hear her heels clicking with every step she took. It seemed to overpower all the other heels in the station. They echoed off the walls. It was starting to irritate her. Her mom was supposed to pick her up in five minutes and she couldn't remember where she was supposed to get the rest of her bags. You would think living here your whole life you would know these things but she never had to do it herself really.

After ten minutes she finally found them and hooked one on her arm and pulled the handle in order to roll the other. She hadn't gotten the chance to tell anyone why she left. She hadn't even been able to say goodbye to her best friend Ana. She hoped she would let her explain before tossing her aside but knowing Ana she probably wouldn't.

"Bree! Bree!"

She hadn't heard that name in a long time. She turned to see her very beautiful mother waving and smiling at her. Bree ran wards her as fast as her heels could take her and they hugged. It wasn't a fake hug it was real. She and her mom had bad times but Aubree really did miss her.

"Let's go home. You can tell me all about it."

Chloe Blackburn
The annual back to school party. It was something Chloe threw every year for the students of Constance Saint Jude Prep School. At least all the students relevant enough to invite. She over saw every detail, the food, the dΓ©cor, the guests, the booze. Whats a party without a little booze. She was pleased with how things turned out this year. No outsiders has the nerve to show their faces...yet.

She was wearing through the random dance floor that was created by a bunch of half drunk half horny teens to get herself a drink when her phone got an alert. Gossip girl. She stopped and read the post, seeing the picture of her former Queen B back after hearing nothing from her for nearly a year. She clicked her phone off and set off to find Ana, forgetting all about the cocktail she had concocted in her mind just minutes before.

Interacting With: Mel and DJ Bennett

"Elle, darling, maybe you'll find this one interesting." Jillian proceeded to read the latest post from Gossip Girl aloud to her daughter, who couldn't be less interested. After she was finished, all Elle could offer up was a half hearted "huh". She looked up from her book to see her mom giving her a disapproving glare. "If you don't keep up with this Gossip Girl, how will you know what's happening at your school? How will you know who to be friends with?"

Well Mom, I do go to this school and I heard plenty of stories already last year. And I don't want to be friends with any of these rich brats even though you keep trying to make me, Elle thought to herself, though she dare not sass her mother. "I don't think I need to keep up with her when you have it covered already Mom."

Jillian gave her another disapproving look. Elle gave her mother the best fake smile she could, which seemed to satisfy her. After a few more moments of awkward silence, the teen closed her book and stood up. "Oh, I forgot to tell you-- DJ and Mel wanted to get together tonight before school starts tomorrow. Could I go over to their house for a few hours?"

Her mother sighed before nodding. "As long as you're ready for your first day tomorrow. Make sure to tell your father you're leaving." Elle thanked her mom before going to her room.

Once safely inside she texted Mel and DJ: I hate to invite myself over, but could I hang out with you guys for the night? She didn't want to be stuck discussing Gossip Girl's latest posts with her mother all night, nor did she want her parents bearing down on her about her grades before the school year had even begun. Of course she couldn't mention the latter to her friends, but she never felt she had to explain her reasons for going over to their home unless they asked. As she waited for a response she put on her shoes and threw a sweatshirt into a bag to take with her.

"More than likely they're still at the coffee shop, closing up. They sent me back home early to start working on dinner." Mel just nodded her head at his answer, even though she knew he didn't see her nod.

"You're welcome by the way. Wouldn't want to see my lil sis burning down the house", DJ said jokingly. "Haha, very funny," she responded with a sarcastic tone. Just because she didn't cook very often it didn't mean that she didn't know how to. At that moment her conversation was interrupted by a response from Lex. She read the message and a smirk appeared upon her lips.

To: Lex
"Very true. c: I'll be there shortly."

Mel sent the reply to Lex and stood to her feet as she heard her brother began speaking again, "Hope you don't mind stir fry vegetables... Someone forgot to go shopping and we are severely lacking in protein... Unless you want some of my protein powder mixed in. Which I doubt." "As much as I would love to have your wonderful stir fry veggies, I have a party to go to. I'll have to eat when I get back," she started as she slid her phone into her back pocket and started towards the door. "Save me some?" she added just before she closed their front door behind her.

Mel knew she was going to definitely hear it from DJ, but right now she had an invite to one of the parties of the elite. There was no way she was going to pass this up. Especially since she would be able to see Lex sooner. She has no idea what it is about that guy but she enjoys spending time with him.

Once the female was out on the street she called down a taxi and gave him the destination of the party before riding along in silence. During the ride to the party, she received a message from Elle. Mel hated to tell her she would be going to this party, but it was one step closer to being where she wanted to be.

To: Elle
"I'm going to the back to school party. I'll have to see you when I get home. Sorry, Elle.

Mel knew she just disappointed her best friend and she knew she wasn't going to hear the end of it, but she needed this.

It took no time at all for her to arrive. Mel paid the driver and climbed out of the vehicle before making her way into the building to begin scouting out Lex.

[ Location: Ci-Ci's Party ]

The party was starting to bore Lex as he waited for Mel to arrive. He had seen Ci-Ci knock into one of the freshmen and the subsequent flying drinks, which was rather typical for Ci-Ci. Lex chose not to intervene, mainly because this was Ci-Ci's party and he didn't want to annoy her, too much tonight.

Lex noted some movement towards the entrance of the party, apparently something interesting was happening. When he began to part the crowd which had gathered at the entrance he noticed Mel but he doubted that this would be the reason for the commotion. Surely something else was up. It was then that he noticed Bree enter the party as well, something which really intrigued him.

He walked over towards Mel, grabbing a drink from an unsuspecting guest before they could drink from it, walking behind Mel and wrapping his arm around her shoulder while placing the drink in her hand. "Evening love, looks like you've arrived at a rather fortunate time... Let me introduce you to an old friend."

While he walked with Lex he noted how some of the people at the party were watching her. "Don't worry much about them love... They'll learn, to either grovel at my feet or... perhaps yours one day."

When he was in front of Bree he held his hand out to shake her hand while his other was held on Mel's hips. "Well well... Welcome home Queen, the ignorant masses await but before that... This is Mel, I'm sure you will find her as beautiful and useful as I do."

"Of course I'll save you some... Wait what?!", as soon as DJ had realized what Mel had said he had turned to confront her, only to find that she had already left. He cursed at himself for not being able to stop her from leaving to whatever party was happening.

Feeling his phone vibrating DJ had taken his primary phone out and saw Ele's text. Replying to it DJ sent a message which read, Sure, you can come over. Mel just headed out but... Before he could finish his text he felt his other phone, his business one, vibrate. Seeing a message from Ana.

He then replied instead to Ana, writing, Will get there as soon as I can. Hold on for now. Grabbing his "supplies" and his backpack DJ prepared to leave. With his dinner cooked he covered and placed it into the oven, leaving a note on the fridge for his parents about the dinner he left them.

Walking outside he locked the house and walked towards Elle's place, writing her a message. Elle, Mel left for the party and I'm gonna follow her to make sure she doesn't get into too much trouble... I know this isn't really your thing but... maybe this could get your mother off your back for a little bit. DJ hated asking this of Elle because he knew how much she didn't want to be involved with the "elites" but he had to go.

Writing another message to Elle he wrote, I'll be waiting outside your place. Whatever you decide I'll be okay with, whether you come with me or not... But if you do come, I will owe you a day without any of this bullshit... Just you me... and Mel, if you want. Whatever it is... I will deliver.

Leaving that last message DJ waited outside Elle's place, hoping she would come with him.

Gossip Girl
It's rude to show up uninvited, Bree. That's right, she's at Chloe's one and only back to school party. She may not be a queen anymore, but she can still get all eyes on her as she parts a crowd. Is she surveying her old territory, waiting to strike? Or did she really just stop by for a little fun?

The Devil and his current lady friend weren't afraid to say hello. Let's see if our favorite trio will do the same

XOXO

As she left her room, Elle received a text from Mel. She sighed and typed out her response: Ok. Have fun but please be safe and don't get into trouble. After she sent it she went down the hall to Avery's old room, which was now a dual office space for her parents. Her father was sitting at his desk, typing away. "Dad, I'm going over to Mel and DJ's for awhile. Mom said it's fine." He gave her a small "mhmm" as he continued typing.

Walking back down the hall towards the stairs, she felt her phone vibrate in her pocket. She checked it and it was a text from DJ. She couldn't blame him for wanting to keep tabs on Mel. She'd been hanging around Lex as of late and that could only spell trouble, at least in Elle's opinion. She descended the stairs and said goodbye to her mom, purposefully omitting that her plans had changed. As soon as she got to the door, she got another text.

After reading it she smiled, thinking of the good old days when the three (or four when Avery was still there) of them would just hang out for hours without any of this elite nonsense. She walked outside of her house and saw DJ out on the sidewalk.

"So if I want to go to Antartica or the moon, you'll take us there?" she asked as she walked out to meet him. "Because it's truly been my dream to become a human popsicle." She gave him a quick hug. Though tempted to ask why he had his backpack, she couldn't help but feel that it'd be a bit hypocritical when she herself had brought a drawstring bag.

"So, shall we journey into the den of---?" She stopped as she noticed a taxi coming down the street. She quickly hailed it before turning back to DJ. "Lions. I was going to say lions." Elle opened the door and climbed into the back seat, scooting to the far side so that DJ could get in. Her mouth opened to tell the driver where to go, but she realized that she didn't actually know the address. She looked to DJ, hoping that he knew.

Aubree politely shook Mel's hand as she spoke,"You as well. If you'll excuse me I'm looking for someone," The old Queen then let go of Mel's hand and slid past herself and Lex before she stopped to speak to Mel one last time. "I would be careful who I befriend, Mel. Not everyone has your best interest at heart." Without another word, she just went her own way, leaving Mel and Lex alone again. At that moment, she noticed Chloe saw her at the party. The female decided to just ignore it until it came up, which it most likely would, knowing how Chloe was.

"What was all that about?" she questioned. Sure, she knew Lex wasn't exactly the nicest person around, but he never seemed to hurt Mel. At least not yet anyway.

Moments later the entire room filled with notification sounds, signaling that another Gossip Girl post had shown up. Mel pulled out her phone, seeing she had a text from Elle as well. She opened the Gossip Girl post first and read it. She smiled a bit when she noticed that she was finally part of one of the posts. Mel just took one of her first steps into this world and it was all thanks to Lex.

She then read the message from Elle, seeing that the message was sent a little over thirty minutes ago. Seeing that she was doing her whole, don't get into trouble lecture, just like a parent would do she just smirked and shook her head. That was typical of Elle.

To: Elle
Of course I'll be careful...Mom :P

Mel sent the message and slid her phone back into her pocket, focusing all of her attention back onto Lex. "I know there has to be alcohol at this party. I'm pretty sure I could use a dose of it," she stated, hoping that Lex would know where to find it.
