Guilty Of...
Theft and Larceny

Likes
Stealing| To put it simply, stealing in Ian's opinion, is like a drug.
The thrill and adrenaline that comes with the anxiety of wondering
if today's the day he'll be caught is more than enough to draw him
back again the next day.


Being Social| Whether it be with close friends or complete
strangers, Ian loves to converse with others. He's a social butterfly
who almost always is the first one to initiate a conversation.


Fights| In the same way that stealing gives Ian a wave of
excitement, watching a fight or even partaking in a fight is another
form of entertainment for him. The only difference is that he
rarely starts a fight and only partakes in them when he feels the
need to.


Scary Movies| In his free time you can always find Ian at a local
video rental, choosing his next horror movie. He delights in the way
they get his heart pumping, and the thrill of never knowing what's
about to happen next.


Music| In between getting into fights, doing some shoplifting
here and there, and renting scary movies, Ian loves listening to
music, his tastes ranging from hip hop to soft jazz and indie.


Dislikes
Being bored| Ian's personal hell would a world where nothing
ever happened, and where he would be forced to sit down and do
nothing for all of eternity. That being said, he hates having to
do anything that involves doing nothing.


Rude People| More specifically, people that lack basic
manners. Ian was raised by a family that valued proper
etiquette and courtesy. Though he's not necessarily perfect,
he tries his best to be at least a somewhat proper gentleman.


Fears
☠ Being responsible for his actions
☠ Doing nothing

Skills
✯ Stealing
✯ Fighting
✯ Running
✯ Socializing

Flaws
βœ• Short attention span
βœ• Terrible sense of responsibility
βœ• Extremely disorganized
βœ• Overly Spontaneous

Personality

Spontaneous|
Part of what makes Ian so devastatingly skilled at stealing,
is that he's not afraid of making last minute, important decisions.
However his instinctive and impromptu personality doesn't always
act as his ally.

Social|
Part of what propels Ian through 24 hours every day, is his social
life. Meeting up with friends, chatting away with strangers, and
building relationships are a main part of Ian's non-illegal life.
Ian's attentive and aware personality also give him a boost in his
social and friend-making skills.

Cultured|
Ian was taught to be a gentleman growing up, and makes a great
deal of effort towards keeping his manners and being polite.
Being at least decently literate was also a "must" in the Meyer
family, and they naturally made sure their son received a good
education.

Biography

Ian grew up in a family where manners came first. "Please" and
"Thank you" were just the basics of being a proper gentleman and
gentlewoman in the Meyer household. Holding the door open for
people behind you, helping kind old ladies across the street, and
carrying heavy loads for others were all considered elementary.

The Meyers had a total of five kids; four girls, all perfect in both
their studies and conduct, and Julian..the not-so-perfect
troublemaker. They made no mistakes as far as they knew in
raising him, treated him no differently than they did his other
siblings, on overall cared for and doted on him as much as the
next pair of loving parents. Stealing was an addiction, and despite
their efforts to lead him back onto the "right road" Ian only found
himself going deeper down his own flawed path. However, the
Meyers refused to give up, using Ian's ever-present gentlemanly
manners as proof that he still had hope.

The "Big Brothers Big Sisters" program was Ian's chance to
start over. It was his big chance; his last chance to change...
and it was an opportunity he planned on taking full advantage of.

Arizona, at this point in the day, was looking marvelously beautiful. The sun sat, plump in the light blue sky, and far below, a young boy was staring directly at it in amazement through the window of a car. It was a sight to see: a small teenager buckled into the back of a black, bulletproof car. Two tough looking men sat in the front seats, a very large gun in the hand of the one in passenger's side. The one who was armed seemed to be observing their escort by a constant turning of his head. Upon seeing what he was staring at, the man informed the youth that the sun was not something to be looked at for long periods of time. The boy, in response, turned to face him, but his hands immediately shot to his eyes. He made a small whining noise before drawing his hands back to his lap and looking out the window once more, ignoring the sigh of his guard.

The boy's name was Toddlk Lorav and he was an alien. To any outsider, that statement would seem bizarre and unbelievable, but it was the truth. Toddlk did not come from earth, but when he had arrived as a visitor, he had been treated with respect. In fact, Todd had nearly just arrived. He'd landed in a small ship at some secret military base in northern Arizona, and he was on his way to yet another secret facility.

Suddenly, the car jerked to a stop, it's wheels kicking up dust from the sandy road, pulling the small extra-terrestrial out of his thoughts. He immediately found himself, once again, glued to the window, his eyes widening at the sight of their destination. In truth, he'd expected it to look nicer, as it looked quite like a prison from the outside. It had large stone walls covered in barbed wire and practically an army of guards surrounding its gate. Before Todd could finish looking, his door was pulled open by the driver of his car, whom Todd did not notice get out. He stared at the unfriendly looking man through the opening in the car, Todd not moving from his seat. The two boys locked eyes, Toddlk still not budging. Eventually, the driver seemed to realize what the issue was, leading him to bend over the short blonde in his car and unbuckle his seatbelt. "Thank you!" the alien cried as he grabbed his small suitcase and leaped out of the car, landing in a catcher's stance. He quickly stood up, trotting toward the massive clump of security guards. The driver, who had followed him from the car, rested a hand upon his shoulder, signaling him to wait a moment. Todd didn't mind, as he instead knelt down and began to play with the sand below them.

The man gruffly spoke some sort of code, as "Butternut" was not a word that often came up in regular conversation. The security force grunted in acknowledgement, parting so that the gate they were guarding could be passed into. There was a loud buzzing noise, followed by the swinging open of the gate. Todd took this as a cue to stand up and approach the facility that would be home for the next few weeks.

Upon stepping into the facility, his breath was taken away. Despite its outward appearance of a prison, the city inside was stunning! There were small houses lining the streets, Todd figuring that they were the homes of those in charge of and running the experiment. There was a rather large building, which happened to be filled with classrooms, although the young alien did not know this. In the middle of the town square lied an enormous fountain, water trickling down from the mouth of an extravagant angel resting at the top, all the way into the pool below. The sight made Toddlk flinch with discomfort.

Before he could admire the scenery much longer, he was approached by a stranger wearing a white lab coat. The man, his appearance leading Todd to believe that he was a scientist, seemed fascinated by the sight of the young alien. To be honest, his appearance did attract interest, as he hadn't mastered human fashion at this point. He wore a pair of orange board shorts, paired with a maroon sweater that did not match in the slightest nor looked comfortable in the Arizona heat. However, the man did not seem to be put off, as he approached the young boy and placed a hand upon the lad's head as he examined him. "Mr. Lorav. A pleasure to have you!" he spoke after he had sized the young man up, recognizing him from the profiles of participants available to the staff. "I expect you knew that, when coming here, you'd be paired up with humans, correct?"

Todd stared at him, slightly baffled, only half paying attention to what the man was saying. But, his lips parted into a wide grin and he placed his hand upon the stranger's head, as he figured that it was some human welcoming ritual. The man pulled away laughing, as if Toddlk had done something he found funny. "The dorm buildings are right over there, if you would like to get settled into your room," said the supposed scientist, pointing to a large building down the street and to the right. "I have to stay here to welcome our other guests, so I'll see you later." As Todd turned to leave, now on his own, the man waved at him. Todd waved back, grinning stupidly, before making his way to his room.

The dorm building was about two stories tall and quite wide. Its outer facade seemed quite new, not a single crack to be found upon its surface. It had a few steps leading up to its wooden door, which Todd quickly climbed, prying the entrance open. He stepped inside, finding the foyer to give off a very quaint feel. The lobby had comfortable looking couches inside, and a television hanging upon the far wall. Steps lead up to the next story, a small platform above holding the entrance to six different rooms. The young alien hurried up the steps, finding that, upon each door, two names were plastered. Todd searched until he found his own name, next to the name of a stranger. Eagerly, he stepped into his new bedroom. To his surprise, it seemed quite homey, so he plopped his suitcase down upon the floor. The room contained a large bunk bed, a small kitchen area with a mini-fridge and microwave, and a bathroom tucked away in the back. Todd, unknowing of what to do next, sat himself down upon the floor and stared at the door.

Ian woke up with a start, his body lunging forward as the car came to a sudden stop. He yawned, rolled his neck, stretched his arms, and checked his right cheek in the rear-view mirror for any marks his seat-belt may have left while he was asleep. The scorching heat of the Arizona sun rushed in and quickly replaced the cool air the car's ac had provided as a bulky, stereotypical agent man (whom Ian identified as his driver) pulled the door open. "Thank you, sir." The man nodded sharply in response. Ian's home for the next whatever amount of days was large, lacking nothing in terms of security, and unfriendly as far as he could tell. In a nutshell, the place was basically - no, literally - a prison. The government man signaled for Ian to follow him with a slight wave, and placed his sunglasses in his back pocket as he whispered to one of the guards. Ian's fingers twitched as he eyed the glasses, and he promptly shoved them into his pant pockets. Refraining from stealing was going to be tough.

Ian's eyes were torn away from the glasses as the government man pulled him to the side. The large gate swung open to reveal the stunning city it protected, causing a whirl of dust where it met the ground. Ian squinted to keep the sand out of his eyes and took his first steps into the secret base. He took a look around, hardly noticing the government man's departure, his mouth opening slightly in awe. The place was far more fanciful and expensive than it's outside suggested; a large school-like building, several beautiful houses, and a showy angel fountain completed it's fancy look. He put his luggage down and rolled his shoulder.

"Welcome," the unidentified man paused to look at the clipboard he carried with him, "Mr.Meyer." Ian turned to his left to see a man dressed in a long white lab coat, with several different colored pens tucked into his jacket pocket. Ian held his hand out as the man approached. "That's me, it's a pleasure to meet you." The man eagerly took his hand and shook it several times before letting go. "I don't believe your partner has arrived yet, but you can go ahead and wait in the dorm building over there,"The scientist pointed in the direction he was to go. "Thank you." Ian swung his bag over his shoulder and began his short walk towards the building.

By the time Ian had arrived at his destination a period of at least ten minutes had passed, including the time he spent using his hands to splash water around in the pool. Upon opening the door, he found that the building's interior was just as extravagant as the city itself. The inside was decked with everything he would have expected to have seen in a home decor magazine; it was complete with several couches and a large flat-screen T.V.. Ian continued upwards, to the second story of the building. He traveled down the hallway until he came to a door that read Julian Meyer and Asa Lluic. He turned the handle and pushed the door open, making his way into his room. Similarly to the rest of the place, his dorm room did not fail to impress. The room's floor and ceiling were made of smooth wooden boards, and came with a spacey bunk bed, a kitchen, and a bathroom.

Ian sighed, and officially claimed the upper part of the bunk bed by placing his luggage on top. The peacefulness of the place as nice as it was, bored him, and Ian promptly made his way downstairs and turned on the T.V. to break the bothersome silence. He sat down on one of the couches and began flipping through the channels offered. Figuring no one else had arrived yet, as the place was practically devoid of sound, he turned the volume up and leaned back into the couch.

Toddlk Lorav found that he could not, in fact, last very long without something to do. The floor soon grew dull, as did staring at the door, when there were other matters for him to take care of. For starters, Earth was cold. He had realized that the moment that he had stepped onto this planet's crust, but he had imagined the further down they went, the warmer it would have got. Coming from an unearthly desert community, the 100-degree weather was nothing to him. In fact, it caused him to go as far as to rip the sheets off of the bottom bunk and huddle under the blankets in a pile upon the floor.

However, the alien did not hesitate to pop out of his small fort at the sound of the opening door, eager to greet whoever might be entering the room. He expected his human partner and even prepared his greeting, but found that this was not the case. Standing before him was yet another human in a lab coat (how many were running around this place?), only this time the being appearing to be female. "Eh?" grunted the smaller life-form, lost as to why the woman had come to see him.

"Todd-lick Lorav?" she asked, unaware of how incorrectly she was pronouncing the boy's name. Todd, not offended by this, merely nodded in response, standing up from his position on the floor, allowing the blanket to slide off of his shoulders and onto the ground. The girl seemed nervous, placing a hand on the back of her neck as she blushed and attempted to continue speaking. "I- um, we-... There's been a mistake with your rooming situation and we've placed you in the incorrect area. I'm so sorry, sir." She spat out her words with an impressive speed, so fast that the alien in front of her had to take a moment so that he could figure out exactly what he had just heard. Her expression practically screamed "Please, don't get upset with me and dissect my brain!", but Todd supposed that that couldn't be helped.

Trying to soothe the woman's anxiety, Todd smiled brightly. "Okay! he said cheerfully. However, his thoughts quickly changed, as he looked down at the mess he had made with the blanket that had turned out not to be his. Not understanding exactly how to make a bed, Todd dragged the blanket back to its original spot on the bottom bunk and tossed it back on, patting it slightly in a futile attempt to straighten it, giving up on his mission and instead gathering his belongings. The woman seemed slightly disturbed with his antics, but, when he was finished, opened the door for him none the less. "Thank you, Honn!" he said, his last word translating to "Miss" in his own language. Todd still did not understand English honorifics, or even human honorifics for that matter, so he used Fleiohirian dialect instead. The woman, however, was dumbfounded by this and simply stared at him. Eager to leave the situation, she simply pointed at the door that must have been Todd's new room. "You might want to knock," was all she said before vanishing down the stairwell.

Todd sighed. The poor woman had been a complete nervous wreck, and probably completely unaware of the fact that he could sense her horrified emotions. He hoped that his partner, whenever it was that they met, would not be as intimidated. It seemed funny that Toddlk Lorav, the strange empathic kid that was beat up all throughout his high-school experience, was not scaring human scientists.

But, Todd didn't dwell any longer on his thoughts, as he now stood in front of the door he had been directed toward. It had two names plastered upon its facade, neither of which belonged to the blonde alien. He had been told to knock, but that was a problem as he had never knocked upon a door before. He could only guess as to how he was supposed to carry out the odd act. So, in his best attempt at knocking, Todd slapped the door with the palm of his hand, an immediate stinging sensation there to alert him that he had done it wrong. If one looked closely, they could catch the glare Todd sent at the inanimate object as he opened it, throwing the matter behind him.

With a large, bright grin, the alien strolled into the room. "Hello! I-" However excited he may have been, Todd's words were quickly brought to a halt as he stared at the vacant room. He sighed, figuring he had injured his hand for nothing. Still, not all hope was lost, as another person's luggage had been thrown onto the top part of the conjoint beds, a contraption Toddlk found to be quite dangerous looking. Learning from the human's example, Todd threw his own belongings into the bunk below, not before pulling the blanket off and wrapping it around his shoulders. Unknowing of what exactly to do, the creature plopped himself down on the lower bed, careful not to bump his head, closed his eyes and took a deep gulp of the unfamiliar air. He felt that he was going to like this Earth, and he was one to trust his gut.

Despite his efforts to improve his situation, Ian, once again, found himself completely and utterly bored. There was absolutely nothing going on, and Ian became fully aware of the chic, minimal design clock ticking away as several minutes (Ian felt like they were hours) passed by. The T.V. was doing little in keeping Ian amused, and the channels it provided were fairly limited, so it was turned off very shortly after being turned on. Ian sighed and wiggled his toes, patted the couch, practiced rolling his 'r''s, and basically did anything he could to keep himself amused for the time being. He was so preoccupied in entertaining himself that he hardly noticed a fairly average height, average weight, and overall average looking young woman let herself into the building, go down the hallway, disappear for a few moments, and then reappear in the lobby.

"E-excuse me. You're Julian Meyer...is that correct?"

A young woman tapped his shoulder, making sure she had his attention. Ian glanced up and quickly got up on his feet and put his hand out in greeting. "Yes, nice to meet you..Can I..help you with something?" The young woman was dressed in a lab coat, loose black pants, and a pair of plain brown shoes. She ignored his outstretched hand and looked aside. "There's been a slight change of plans. Your new roommate will be "Toddle-ick, T-Toddl-ak, Todd--Mister Lorav." She blushed at her slight struggle with pronouncing his name, and left quickly. Ian stretched and looked around the room, though he knew there wasn't anything new to look at. "Huh." The woman's sudden appearance wasn't that big of a deal, but it was one of the most interesting things that had happened to him all day. "Oh," the woman appeared again, apparently with something extra to say, "and, but, well, your room is still the same so don't worry about it. Thank you." "No, thank yo-," Ian began to reply, but the strange woman had already left.

Ian took another glance around the room, and wondered whether or not his partner was already here. Curious, he began making his way down the hallway and back to his room, taking his sweet time to read the names of the other participants. "Cypher Maimo...Ecru Dichro...Asa Luic...,"Ian continued on, stopping when he go to the door that read "Julian Meyer" and "Toddlk Lorav". Ian paused before the door, and used the shiny doorknob to check his reflection. He played slightly with his bangs, rearranging them in several different ways before giving up. He ran his finger across the name "Toddlk Lorav" and practiced saying it, in the case that his partner was in fact, already in the room. He remembered his mother repeating over and over again that "First impressions are everything." Ian fixed his bangs for the five hundredth time, and then resumed his practicing. "Todd-lick Lorav. Todd-luk Lorav. Todd-lack?" Ian sighed. Despite being an expert conversationalist, and a full-time social butterfly, he found himself getting nervous about meeting someone for once in his life. He rolled his shoulders, took a deep breathe, and placed his hand on the doorknob.

"Hey, what's up. I'm Julian but you can call me Ian."

Ian smiled brightly as he entered the possibly empty, possibly occupied-by-an-alien room. Ian looked around the room, and smiled as he caught the eye of a small, petite-looking boy with large violet eyes. The boy - no, alien - appeared to be around 12, 13, maybe 14 years old, and Ian struggled with the thought that this, this child was an alien. If anything, the only thing that really hinted he wasn't from earth, was the boy's bizarre taste in clothing. "So are you really an alien? Or is this some huge, complex, practical joke?" Ian made himself comfortable on the floor, waiting for his roommate's answer.

Todd found that his wait was not long at all, as, within a few moments, he noticed the doorknob turn. The opening of the door followed with the entrance of another being, a person which Todd assumed was human. The boy introduced himself, stating that his name was Ian, a shortened version of Julian. He also paired his name with the question "What's up?", a phrase that the alien did not understand. "What's... up?" he asked, leaning his head back to check. "The.... bed above me?" He had no idea why anybody would care to know what was above him, but he knew it must have made sense to humans.

After answering the human's odd question, Todd turned back to his roommate. "It's a pleasure to meet you, Ian. My name is Toddlk Lorav, but most people seem to have difficulty saying that here, so call me Todd if you find that easier to say." He didn't exactly know how to greet the people of Earth, and he debated trying the strange head tap that a scientist had used on him a few minutes before. However, a quick read of the human's emotions told him that he had done all that he needed to with his introduction.

Without much of a hesitation, Ian responded with a question. "So are you really an alien? Or is this some huge, complex, practical joke?" asked the human, who now settled down upon the floor.

"Yep, I'm really an alien!" he cried, as if the statement had excited him. Technically, from Todd's perspective, Ian was an alien also, but since Todd had come to his planet, he figured it was only right for that title to go to him. "I'm from Fleiohiri, although it's quite far away so I doubt you've heard much about it. It's a lot warmer there," Todd said as he fidgeted with his blanket. "So, are you from around here?"

Toddlk leaned forward, allowing his roommate to answer. Everything about earth intrigued him, leaving his mind practically begging for information and insight. However, only a few moments passed before a loud voice, belonging to neither of the occupants in the room, echo throughout their dorm. The sudden noise, which came from below the bunks, scared the poor alien sitting above it half to death. "Hello there, participants. I hope that you are all settling down into your rooms and getting to know your partners. As you've probably realized by now, half of you... aren't from around here. As its getting later, the staff of this facility have decided to order you all pizza. If you could begin to make your way to the foyer downstairs for dinner, that'd be great."

Sliding off the bed, Todd decided to examine the source of this voice. He lowered himself onto his hands and knees, not giving Ian much of an explanation to his random behavior, and peered under the bunk. It was there that he found a speaker, one of the many that must have been rigged in every room. He wondered if the scientists could hear them as well as talk to them.

This did not bother Toddlk, though, as he had not come to Earth with intent to judge its people. If it was a human thing to hook up software in the bedrooms of citizens so that you could listen in on them, then who was Todd to deem it odd? Anyway, he had other things to wonder about. For one, what was pizza? He guessed that humans ate it, and he would most likely eat it as well. Although, he couldn't help but wonder if the alien food of Earth would agree with his digestive system, built for foods Earth did not have to offer. Todd had not been smart enough to pack snacks in case he couldn't eat human cuisine, but he didn't worry about it too much. He didn't even seem to care much when he came to the realization that anything and everything about Earth could possibly disagree with his alien body. His solution to his slightly pessimistic thought was to simply not get sick.

Quickly realizing how awkward he must have looked, Todd stood up and dusted himself off. "Should we get going?" he asked Julian.
