0 · 722 views · located in California

a character in “Welcome to Hollywood High”, as played by insouciance



{All You Need Is Love: The Beatles | Dance With My Father: Luther Vandross | Teenage Dirtbag: Wheatus}


Full name
Tommaso Antony Pasqualino.

"Please, just call me Tom."
Tom {commonly}, Tommy {close friends and family}, Stoner Boy {only his sister}.

Age & Birth date
18 {13th June 1996}.


Relationship Status
"It was a messy breakup."
Newly single.



How old does he appear
Late teens / early twenties depending on whether he shaves.

Height, Weight & Build
6'2, 174 lbs, tall & slightly muscular.

Eye color & sight
Hazel brown eyes, wears contacts {prescription 2.5+ on both eyes}.

Skin tone
"My Madre says I have skin like the sun."
Dark olive skin.

Distinguishing marks
Tom has a multitude of cuts and scraps due to his skateboarding obsession. The most visible scar he earned from skating would be the scar on his chin, which reaches down just under his jaw. He also has small scars on his right elbow and hand from a nasty fall from a tree back in Italy. Gia, his sister, has also added to the assortment of scars by stepping on his foot, in heels, very hard after he made some snide comment about her height.

Hair color & style
"Gia keeps telling me to get it cut."
Deep chocolate brown, almost black. Slightly overgrown, reaches past his ears.

Tom opts for fairly laid back outfits, usually consisting of skinny jeans, some scuffed sneakers and layered jackets as padding for when he falls.
x, x, x.

Overall attractiveness
"The ladies here, they call me exotic."
Back in Italy, Tom was a moderately attractive guy - not jaw dropping, but definitely not someone you'd just look over. However, since arriving in Los Angeles, Tom has been getting much more attention than he thought he would. It would appear his exotic colouring and toned muscles {courtesy of all his skateboarding} is much more attractive to American ladies than it is to Italians. His fairly gentle features and full lips already give him a very approachable appearance, plus his messy overgrown hair make for a very warm look. His easy smile and thick Italian accent help to attract the opposite sex, also.

Greatest joys in life
"There's nothing I love more than my family. Sí, I do tease my sisters very much but they know that I love them. And as for my Madre, there is nothing I would not do for her. She brought me into this world, the least that I can do for her is be the perfect son - Which is why I keep my nasty habits a secret. Apart from my family, I love skating. Everything about it, I love. It is apart of me. Gia may not agree with me doing it as she thinks it is a waste of time but I cannot stop myself. Also I hope that when I am older I will be able to help other people, I have had a very good life and I want others to have that too."
Skateboarding, Family & Helping others.

Greatest fears
"I think that what I fear most is not fitting in here. I am a foreigner in this country and I do not know how the students of Hollywood Highschool will act around me. I am not like them. I do not understand some of their words. All I can do is be myself and hope that they will accept me for that. I am also very worried about my nonni - sorry, grandparents. They are old and without my mother to visit them everyday and make sure they are well, I do not know how they will live."
Not fitting in & His grandparents dying.

"I am focusing on learning English better, all I want to do is fit in here."
Fit in at HHS.

Life philosophy
"Riding a skateboard doesn't make you a skateboarder. Being unable to stop riding a skateboard is what makes you a skateboarder." - Lance Mountain.

orange, yellow & blue.

Least favourite color/s

"What can I say? I am Italian after all and we love our risotto."

Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling.

"Not unless you count skateboarding."

How would you spend a rainy day?
"I would probably spend a rainy day learning English, it would be a great time to broaden my vocabulary, or so my tutor says."

Besides occasionally smoking a joint or two, Tom doesn't do any other drugs, nor does he smoke.

Naples, Italy.

What was your childhood like?
Tom had a very happy childhood. Sure he didn't live a lavish lifestyle like a lot of the students at HHS but he was apart of a very happy and loving family. That was until Tom's father died when he was seventeen, his mother became depressed and everywhere they went it was a reminder of what happened to their father. So, Gia packed their bags, took a job offer as an Italian teacher at a school in Los Angeles and took them all with her.

A pet rat named Scabbers {after ron's rat in HP}.

First memory
"It is a simple memory but beautiful."
Dancing around their old living room in Italy with his older siblings and his parents as a child.

Childhood Hero or Idol
"My Madre has alway inspired me, she is so strong. Having raised five children all on her own, as well as looking after my nonni, she's wonderful."
His mother.

{5 - 11} Homeschooled by his mother.
{11+ } Public school.

Currently living with
His mother and four siblings.

Works part-time at the library.

Little money {Lower - Working class}.

""It is not very large and I have to share a room with all my brothers, but I don't mind."

Tom either rides his skateboard wherever he needs to go, or gets a lift from Gia, his eldest sister.



Alfredo Pasqualino | Father {54} | Deceased | Tom's father wasn't the smartest man. He'd barely made his way through school and left when he got a job at 16. Although he may not have been the most intelligent, he gave Tom some of the most valuable life lessons that he still sticks to today.

Carla Pasqualino | Mother {52} | Unemployed {used to make pottery} | Tom adores his Madre; there's nothing he wouldn't do for her. Whenever she finds it hard to get out of bed in the mornings, he's always there to help her up and give her his signature lopsided smile to brighten her day.

Gia Pasqualino | Older Sister {24} | Teacher | Gia has always been the mother hen of the family. She looked out for them all when Carla was depressed and knows everything about Tom, even the habits he manages to hide from his mother.

Dante Pasqualino | Older Brother {21} | Soccer Coach | Dante is the star athlete of the family and Tom finds that very hard to relate to. Sure, they're brothers and they love each other, but they've never been quite as close as Tom is to his other siblings.

Agnese Pasqualino | Younger Sister {16} | Student | Agnese is possibly the only sibling Tom allows to call him Tommy without shooting them a dirty look or kicking them in the shin. She's a sweet, shy girl with an incredibly powerful voice and Tom hopes that her attending HHS will help to bring her out of her shell.

Cajetan 'Caj' Pasqualino | Younger Brother {14} | Cajetan, or Caj as everyone in the family calls him, is quite possibly the most annoying person you will ever meet. As soon as Tom comes into the house after a day of work, Caj is there to either attack or annoy him. Even though he may be incredibly annoying, Tom still loves him very much and makes sure to look out for him.
