appearance:

There's something pretty, almost feminine about Raph. And yet at the same time, everything about him is entirely effortless. His blonde waves just fall in whatever way they fell when he woke up. His eyes are a grey-green, looking grey in some lights and green in others. His skin is pale but tans after enough exposure- not that it ever gets much of a chance. He's tall, standing at about 6'1, and weighing in at 150 pounds. When it's just him lounging around his apartment, he'll throw on whatever's clean, usually old oversized sweatshirts and faded jeans. He puts in an actual effort for work, usually preferring button up shirts and jeans, as well as either converse or combat boots. It doesn't make a huge difference due to the fact that he never leaves the lab and is always wearing a lab coat, but despite how effortless his appearance can seem, he does care to a certain extent. Usually just enough to make sure his hair is somewhat tidy, his clothes are clean and not guilty of any heinous fashion crimes, and that his clothes look at least okay on him. He used to have a nose piercing, but eventually let it close up. He has a few tattoos- a watercolour astronaut on his forearm, below his right elbow, as well as the chemical structure of serotonin on his left shoulder blade, and a rising sun on the inside of his left wrist.

personality:

Raph's parents often lament that he could have done anything with his brains. He could have been a doctor or a lawyer or something important. Instead, he spends his days in a lab, testing blood and semen and getting none of the glory for these solved crimes. The fact that, at only twenty five, he already has a doctorate is completely irrelevant to them. But Raph himself couldn't be happier. He doesn't want the credit or the fame or the glory. He likes knowing that he's making a difference. He's quiet, modest, and unassuming, but the type of person where his intelligence is immediately obvious the moment he starts talking about something he's passionate about. He's oddly charismatic, all things considered, and is sociable when you actually get him out of the lab. What's perhaps the most remarkable about him is that he can break down even the most complex concepts down to an understandable level.

But Raph is a coward. While working in the lab is exactly what he wants to be doing, it also gives him a chance to hide away from the outside world, and from the demons that it holds. Working long hours gives him a chance to hide from his sexuality, something he's only starting to accept about himself. It gives him a chance to hide away from all the damage he's done, all the demons he has. He hides himself from everyone around him. People hardly even know he's a doctor. He doesn't want to give anyone a reason to look too deeply into them and see the path he left behind him. The person he is now is the person he wants everyone to see.

history:


Raphael was born to a wealthy, high achieving family. His father was a senator, his mother a successful business owner. Raph was always a few steps ahead of the other kids his age, and ultimately skipped to grades to graduate high school at sixteen. His parents had high hopes for such a bright young child. They nudged him towards law at first, but then towards medicine when he showed an interest in science. But Raphael had never cared for anatomy or physiology or anything like that. He was obsessed with chemistry and biochemistry, learning all about how chemicals shaped us as humans. And so he graduated with a double major of Forensic Science and Biochemistry at the age of nineteen. Not only did he graduate with flying colours, but he also received offers of scholarships from a number of university to go study for a PhD. He went to the UK for four years and was a Doctor by the age of 23.

But ever since Raph had been 16 or so, he'd been having somewhat of a personal crisis. He was incredibly confused about his sexuality. While his area was relatively liberal, he could count the amount of LGBT people he knew on one hand, and he didn't know any bi or pan people. While he knew it was a thing, those around him had dismissed it as people being promiscuous, curious, or covering up the fact they were just gay. Raph knew he liked girls, but dismissed his attraction towards guys as curiosity. Even when he seemed to be attracted to more guys than girls.

He had just returned to the US in search of work when it happened. He met an older man while out one night. More than a little drunk, Raph gave in to his "curiosity". Him and the man, Rick, started an affair in secret, Raph finally coming to terms with his sexuality. But the relationship was far from healthy. Rick got Raph started on drugs and got him very nearly addicted. But before it got out of control or to a point where Raph was dependent on both Rick and the drugs, it emerged that Rick was married, and had been putting his wife and his kid through hell. Raph broke it off but still feels somewhat like a homewrecker, especially when an "anonymous" tip about drug possession and dealing got Rick arrested. Raph was headhunted by the Grimmore crime lab when they were particularly struggling with a case, and has been with them ever since. The guilt feels like it's eating him alive at times, and he's relapsed into drug use once or twice. Never for long, but he's afraid one day he won't be able to get back out.

So begins...
