Avalon was born in Germany, using the word born in lack of a better word for it. An arguably better way to describe how she came to be would be to say she was created. In a lab to be specific. Alongside a boy named Edward. She was used in the same experiment, and instead of losing some of the core functions of being human, she instead had a strength that was much more prominent than any other child. At age four, she was already able to lift things twice her size. She could lift one of the researchers who was a man who weight lifted by age nine. But that wasn't her main ability. No. Her main ability, the one that the scientists were so proud of, was her ability to harden her blood. At age ten, she fell down and scraped her knee. One of the researchers went to patch it up, but found that the blood itself had hardened. Avalon toyed with this ability for some time, and soon enough, she could make objects out of her blood. She usually molded a sword from this ability, a sword because she found swords cool, thanks to her growing obsession with anime and manga. By the time she was finally released from the confines of her lab, she had mastered this ability of hers, and vowed that she would never willingly use it against other people.
Nervous, a little bit awkward, and whole lot of self conscious, Avalon has always been a bit quiet. She's not very good at anything other than fighting, and she's a pacifist, so fighting really isn't her thing. She hates blood, even though that's her main form of fighting whenever she's forced into it. She contradicts herself a lot more than she'd like to, and has a general lack in self confidence because she feels like the world is against her. She's difficult to anger, but when she does happen to be angered, she tends to break things without realizing it. Sometimes she'll get so mad that her desk will snap in half below her. While it's only ever happened once, Avalon is always making excuses as to why these unexplained things happen around her. Truthfully, she wants to be normal. She craves to be alone, because while she's usually always alone, she's never lonely. She's also a bit of a closeted weeb, and finds herself completely devoured by Japanese media because it helps her escape reality. She has no family, as she never had a mother or a father to begin with. She lives with two highly respectable scientists though, who watch her every move closely, and so she's put under a lot of pressure.
Alfred came from a wealthy family of four. His brother, his mother, and his father. His parents were lovely, they both had well paying, hard working jobs, and they made sure that Alfred and his little brother had the best childhoods they could possibly have. Well when Alfred turned thirteen, his father died in a brutal car crash. His mother, sent into hysterics after the loss of her beloved husband, went insane, and had to be taken to an institution. So Arthur and his brother were sent to live with their grandpa, who was exceptionally strict and Catholic. They had to abide by his rules, and it was very hard to adapt to an environment so strange. Eventually, Alfred's grades began to take a swift and unexpected decline, from A-Class, down to D-Class in a matter of one year. And for four years after that, his grades continued to take a very shaky route as Alfred struggled to juggle his grandpa, his brother, and the loss of his parents. Even though he had such a rough teenage upbringing, Alfred still remained optimistic. He loved the world, and everything about it. He loved people, he loved animals, nature, technology. And he was determined to make everyone happy by being the ultimate hero.. even though by his fourth year after moving in with his grandpa, he'd been sent to E-Class, and the majority of his old friends had left him.
Alfred is unnervingly optimistic about everything. He's the type of person who will do anything to please his friends. He loves to fish, hike, and climb. In fact, he likes just about anything outdoorsy. Despite his grandfather predicament, Alfred always has a smile on his face, and is usually sporting a very outgoing personality. The people around him usually either love him, or hate him, there aren't really ever any in betweens, as he tends to give people a strong impression upon first meeting them. Surprisingly, Alfred is very intelligent. In fact, his IQ would put him well above A-Class standards, and it's likely he's the smartest in class. This small detail about himself tends to leak out on occasion. But in general, it doesn't seem to have the biggest effect on him, as he doesn't use this to his advantage. Concerning Korosensei, Alfred is a bit uneasy about the subject. He doesn't want to kill anyone, but he also wants to take the chance to be the hero. So he tries, but not too hard. He never actually strikes to kill. Just helps out and takes the credit.
