Description

Image

ImageName: Kailen Matthews

Age: 18

Nickname(s): Kai, Kail, Lenny, Matty.

Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual.

Likes: Impressing people. Being successful in school, which is applied to both popularity and work. Achieving high grades. Nature, pretty much every animal, reptile or bug interests him. Now, this may sound a bit odd, but Kailen does occasionally enjoy the company of a woman, whether it be a sexual partner or close friend.

Dislikes: Failure, to drop down in grades and popularity is basically his worst nightmare, and he will avoid this at all costs. Ignorant, defiant or rebellious teenagers, in simpler terms he'd sooner hack them to pieces with a butter knife than attempt to get along with them, or look at them in a better light. Cruelty to animals, children or women. Annoying social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.), it's not like he doesn't use them, because he has to in order to be updated with the latest gossip, but he's not a big fan of them. Extremely popular TV shoes (Big Brother, I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, Eastenders).

Personality: Kailen is much liked by studens at the school, mainly because of his amazingly positive attitude, even in times of crisis and frustration. He prefers to always look at the bright side of life. He is a boy that is full of happiness and joy, who you'll rarely ever see in a bad mood. He likes to think that he sets an example for the more mischievous kids at his school, though through each passing day that thought grows more distant. It saddens him to see how his generation is turning out; the drugs, parties, alcohol, etc. It's a real shame.

His humor also greatly affects how people view him. He has his caring, mature side, but on the other hand he can be quite a joker, who barely ever takes anything seriously. He has a much more calm and serious attitude towards school, however. Breaktimes, lunchtimes and his own time is when he can joke about, in lessons he is focused, determined to do his best in preperation for the future. He enjoys helping others, and will not hesitate in doing favours for anyone who needs them. Comforting people is something he likes to do. Mainly because of the feeling that he was able to successfully lift another person's spirits, but also because seeing a person who has problems that upset them severely also upsets him.

History: Kailen was raised into a hard working family. His father was a successful lawyer, but his mother stayed at home to take care of him. He was raised an only child, which meant he was spoilt and well looked after. Up until the age of 10, he was a defiant little brat with no worries in the world. He would demand things and go in a violent mood everytime he was refused what he wanted. Eventually it got too much, and his father beat that all out of him one night. He didn't need to be sent the same message twice.

He came out of his parent's bedroom, with a new take on life and a body coated in bruises and cuts. Over the course of a few weeks, the cuts and bruises faded into nothing. But there still remains a nasty scar on the back of his left hand. It was a reminder from his father, that if he ever got like that again he would have to repeat the whole process again. The next 8 years was when he really knuckled down and got stuck into his work. His attitude had improved, and so had his grades. His popularity also began to rise. Life was really looking up for him.

Other: Red, Who We Are.

Face Claim: Shane Coffey.

"Wake up," Called Kailen's father, his voice just as harsh as his icey glare. Kailen cussed under his breath and clambered out of bed, his eyes cloudy and his voice a tiny bit groggy. Despite his usually happy attitude, mornings weren't his thing. His father called up again and Kailen replied by shouting "I'm up!". He pulled open the doors to his wardroke and examined his clothing choice. After a while he chose the 'back to school' outfit he'd bought a few days back.

He wasted no time with goodbyes this morning, he just zoomed out the door, grabbing an apple from the fruit basket in the kitchen on the way. He raced towards his car and got in. "Off to school we go," He whispered, starting off his journey with a "Woo-hoo".

Kailen exited his car and breathed in the toxic air of his highschool car park. "Refreshing!" He said cheerily to himself. He scanned the area with his usually bright eyes, a smile tugging on the corners of his lips. He figured school must be starting some time soon, as a few people were heading inside. There were three that he recognised quite easily. Sungjae, Arrow and Fred. He picked up his pace so that he could walk beside them. "Greetings, friends" He said, soon followed by a small chuckle. "Miss me?".

Sungjae turned and waved to Kailen, the only sort of kind of popular that he could stand - since he was technically a nerd too. "How are you? I missed everyone, Seoul was boring without having friends there. I mean I have some friends there, but they all focus on looks and the like," he mumbled.

His eyes widened as he remembered his discovery that he had made over the summer. "Guys, you will never believe this. There's a whole website dedicated to me. My friends showed it to me while I was over there," he said as he pulled his phone out of his pocket and went to the internet, pulling up the page that he was talking about. He held it up so they could all see.

The website was filled with pictures upon pictures of him while he was wandering around Seoul in the summer. There were comments in every language asking who he was and why there were only pictures of him in the summer and not year round like there were for most people. Sungjae's friends had left a comment explaining that he lived in America and only visited Seoul in the summer - hence only summer pictures.

"Is this just weird or what? I mean its kind of cool, but I don't know why they would take pictures of me and put them on the internet," he said.

Arrow sighed, feeling like she wanted to scream. And she probably would have, had it not been for the fact Sungie probably would have yelled at her for bringing so much attention to them. "What fun is doing work without a fight? At least I get the stuff done." A few seconds passed. "Okay, most of the stuff done. You still need to help me with math though. Numbers and letters? Hasn't made sense to me since seventh grade." The next thing she knew someone was running into Sungie, and she turned to snap at them before seeing one of his other friends. Sometimes she was actually jealous of Sungie, the only friend she had was him, and then he had all these other people. But as soon as she realized that she was actually jealous, she quickly dismissed the feeling. Sungie wouldn't ever ditch her on purpose, 'least she hoped not.

Though she still didn't know how to reply to Fred's question. Actually, she never knew how to reply to anyone saying how's it hanging. Were you supposed to say fine, even if you weren't? Or would it be more appropriate to say good? "Er, it's hanging fine Fred." Well now she just sounded mentally impaired. Was she supposed to ask her the same? "How is it hanging for you?" Yeah, definitely sounded stupid. Good job Arrow, you've succeeded in making a fool of yourself yet another time today.

"They aren't going to get to you Sungie, not this year. I'll be like your personal bodyguard." She stuck her tongue out at him as she pretended to flex nonexistent muscles. As if on cue Kailen stepped up beside their group and a grin lit up her face. "Kailen! Of course we missed you." Arrow jumped around the back of the group and wrapped her arms around the other boy. "See Sungie? You have me, and Kailen to protect you." Her blue eyes found Kailen's. "Well, at least I assume he wouldn't let anyone beat you up." She gave her best puppy dog face, though ended up laughing.

Sungie then began talking about a website all about him and Arrow smiled. "That's awesome. You're like, world-famous." Arrow laughed, batting her eyelashes and pretending to swoon in sight of the 'star'.
