Full Name: Joshua DavisNickname- JoshAge: 17Birth Date- June 22Grade- Being 17 he would be beginning his senior year. However, due to his being pulled out of school for so long, he would probably more at the level of a junior.Hometown: Cincinnati, OhioBirthplace- Cincinnati, OhioAppearance: Closest ReferenceEye Color- Despite being obstructed by hair a good twenty percent of the time, his deep aqua-colored eyes are one of Josh's most noticeable features. They seem soft and caring most of the time but in situations where someone he cares about, that includes himself, is threatened they turn hard and cruel. He used to wear glasses and occasionally still will but he switch to contacts a while ago because he kept breaking his glasses.Hair Color- Josh has brown hair that almost always looks messy. His hair would reach midway past his ears if it wasn't always pushed off the the left. It covers his forehead and sometimes obscures his eyes but it has no effect on his vision.Height- He's not particularly tall, nor is he particularly short. He identifies at about 5'9 but is probably about 5'7. He has a fairly average build. Josh isn't noticeably muscular, in fact he seems to be all skin and bones, but he isn't weak, frail, or overweight.Weight- As previously mentioned, he seems a bit too thin but Josh is an average weight for his height and build at 147lbs.Marks- Josh was raised by a family that said altering your body intentionally in anyway is punishable by death so he hides the only real "marks" he has. There is a rather large scar on his back from when he was younger. He fell out of a tree and the gash left an ugly scar that will probably never fade.Dressing Style: Josh dresses like a stereotypical male teenager. He often wears comfortable, worn jeans that were once dark but have been bleached a lighter shade by constant exposure to the sun. In terms of shirts, he'll wear pretty much any t-shirt that fits him and is actually made for men. He doesn't seem to pay any mind to the shirts he wear because in warm and cold weather, he always wear some kind of sweater. More often than not this means a grey zip-up sweater with a hood that has been worn a bit from simply being worn a lot. In terms of footwear, Josh sticks with vans and no socks. It's easy and they are comfortable to move in. However, vans lack support to he has to have orthopedic inserts and as such he has to buy up a size in shoes.Personality: Josh seems rather closed off most of the time but truth be told he doesn't really know how to make friends. Homeschooling does have it's downsides. He is fairly intelligent and won't hesitate to correct someone. This does tend to have a negative impact on his social skills as this makes him rather argumentative. What's more he has the uncanny ability to piss people off because he is just naturally way too good at everything. Moving out of his social troubles, he tends to make few bonds with people and will often only have two really good friends, but those two people become his motivation. He's not a pushover, mind you, but he is very devoted to his relationships and will pretty much give his life to protect those he cares about. Any mentions of his past or his family tend to set him off though and even playfully dissing him will result in immediate blacklisting. He is especially touchy about his sickly little sister.Weaknesses- Josh lacks social skills and will most likely be alone and unaided. He is reckless as well and that may get him killed. His cautiousness is also a flaw he cannot avoid. However, what will most likely be his downfall, is his natural instinct to protect till his final breath. If you are looking for a way to toy with his brain, just start by mentioning his little sister Olive.Strengths- Having been pretty much running a family for about a year, Josh is responsible and a good leader. He is ambidextrous as well so if one hand breaks he could probably keep going. Josh also has a strong natural instinct to survive and that makes him a pretty good fighter when it all comes down to it.History: Starting at the very beginning, Josh was the first of three children born to a middle class family in Cincinnati, Ohio. When he was a baby, he was, as most are, a brat. It was a full time job raising him so when he was born, his mother took a permanent maternity leave and became a stay at home mom. He was brought up like any normal middle class child was brought up until age 5. By that time, his parents had decided they could handle another child and nine months after Josh began kindergarten at the local private school, he had a little sister. Two years after the birth of Josh's little sister, Olive, Josh's mother had another child, a little girl by the name of Louise. Josh became moody around this and it was clear he was not going to be a social child. He locked himself up in his treehouse for a good three weeks during the summer, sneaking down in the night to get "rations." But, clumsy as children are and dark as the night is, he fell out of the tree and cut his back open. Thankfully, his father, who had been sleeping in a tent in the backyard for the full three weeks was a light sleeper. Josh was rushed to the ER and had to have surgery to repair the damage done to his spinal cord. A slight nick had caused him to temporarily lose mobility in his right arm. Being as young as he was, he learned how to use his left hand and the incident left him, not only with a nasty scar on his back, but also ambidextrous. The next five years passed normally and Josh turned out to be rather unsociable and possessive. Most of the other kids didn't like him very much so his parents arranged for him to play the violin to keep him preoccupied during the time he would have spent out playing sports and making friends. It was around that time that Olive contracted leukemia. As her disease got progressively worse, so did their financial standing. Louise was put into a public school and Olive and Josh were pulled out of traditional schooling all together and the grad-student who lived down the street was employed as their tutor. The two siblings were home schooled from that point onward. Josh stopped playing the violin, though he still remembers how and in the five years that followed his being taken out of school, Josh took several odd jobs working as a delivery boy or taking inventory at a local skate shop where he eventually did pick up skateboarding. His mother went back to work, Louise was schooled normally and pretend she wasn't related to them, and Olive was pretty much permanently hospitalized. Josh's father who had been working the entire time was clearly under a lot of stress from all that was going wrong with his family and he had begun to be closed off leaving Josh to sort of manage the family on his own. As one can imagine, that can't be good for a teenager and so when he was told he could attend this school, practically free of charge, he jumped at the chance. He made the announcement to his family and that seemed to snap everyone back to reality. His father finally got back to being responsible and he forced Louise to stop being ashamed of her family. Josh's mother took some time off from work to help him figure out his future and in the weeks leading up to his departure, all Josh wanted to do was play the violin for Olive. Now he arrives at this school and then... this happens. Family: Mother- Delaney Davis- AliveFather- Andrew Davis- AliveSister- Olive Davis- Alive but Hospitalized.Sister- Louise Davis- AliveOther:
