Rose - Sadness pie soup - (richwhitetrash) | 25 comments Name: Mint Blumen
Nickname: Most people call her Rabbit
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Character overview: Eminem meets Jesse Pinkman.
*Distinguishing markings/tattoos: She has a scar across one eye, leaving it blind, from the street fight that killed Marshall. She has a tattoo of two birds on a wire on her wrist. She has a birthmark in the shape of two folded wings on her back.
Personality: Mint has a kind soul, but normally doesn't show it. She doesn't really love being around people and can give off slightly off-kilter vibe. One of the reasons why she doesn't have very many friends is the fact she is far from trustworthy. She's prone to violent outbursts and will never back down in a argument
History (at least one paragraph): Mint was born in Warren, Michigan, to Maggie and Thomas Blumen. Maggie was a successful poet who suffered from Muanchausen's by Proxy and Thomas a ER doctor. The two raised their daughter in a huge, old manor in the historic part of town. Mint grew up in luxury with her parents profiting from royalties and high pay. She was extremely close with her mother, despite that she abused her by feeding her medication, and when she died in a car accident when Mint was 7, Mint turned to troublemaking to draw her busy father's attention. She ran wild throughout her childhood and when she turned 11, she started to commit less kind-hearted pranks and more petty crimes. When she was fifteen she was sent to Juvie where she met Sal, a sixteen year old meth addict who introduced her to the drug. She left the detention center hopelessly addicted and started dating Marshall Jacques, a dealer from Detroit. After Marshall got her pregnant with twin girls, Jessica and Andrea, the two ran away back to Detroit. They lived out of his car for a few years. The girls were taken into the care of Mint's parents. But the breaking point came when Marshall proposed to Mint at a nightclub. He used the bracelet, being too broke to afford a ring. Mint gleefully accepted, but ten minutes later (as a result of a bar fight), Marshall was shot and killed. He died in Mint's arms. Mint started shooting meth, and her health worsened. But at that time, she released her debut rap album, It’s OK, which garned her press and commercial success (and made her two million dollars). But before she could experience the perils of fame, she overdosed and found herself in the hospital. Her therapists and father decided to send her to Camp as a last-ditch attempt to get his daughter back
Theme song: Sippy Cup – Melanie Martinaz
Song verse that defines her: (view spoiler) Revelation - D12

Rose - Sadness pie soup - (richwhitetrash) | 25 comments Name: Mitchell Parker
Nickname: Parker, Fire boy
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Character overview: The silent weirdo.
Personality: Mitchell doesn’t talk much, and is pretty closed off to everyone else. He hates small talk and has a habit of standing up and walking out of the room when converastions get awkward. In all, he lives in his own little world.
*Distinguishing markings/tattoos: He has a series of burn marks across his arms.
History: Mitchell was born in a housing project to Jessica and Allan Parker, two drug addicts living on the outskirts of Chicago. He soon was taken from their care and placed in foster care until they got clean. When he was finally back in their custody (when he was eleven), his little sister Ella was kidnapped and found dead by the lake. His and his parents both fell into a deep depression and they both relapsed. But one night, a electric fire burnt down the house and killed everyone inside, save Mitchell, who was badly burned. He started living on the streets and got involved with gangs. After he was arrested for being involved with a driveby shooting, his probation officer sent him to Camp to deal with his grief.
Theme Song: Beautiful Pain – Eminem/Sia

╠❝The thing about me is...I'm like poison. A deadly killer. Once it's In your veins, there's no going back. ❞╣

~*~*~[[ History ]]~*~*~

Nix was always the odd one of her family.
Born as a set of twins, she seemed to always be left in her sister, Destiny's, shadow. While Destiny got straight A's in school, She got B's and C's. Destiny was quite the people person, Essence on the other hand was not. Though the two girls were identical, Destiny had a significantly more undeniable ere of beauty to her. Essence was her sister's shadow in every sense.
 She lived like this until the age of ten. That was when everything changed.
 Essence knew something was wrong the moment she spotted the police car outside her house. As it turned out, her sister had been killed - murdered by some psychopath who went by the screen name xGlitterGirl17x in internet chat rooms.
 From that moment on it was like time stood still. Nothing seemed real to Essence, not the candle lit vigils, or the cheesy memorial plaque hung on the wall at school. Not the stories that aired on national news, nor even attending her own twin's funeral. What can a shadow do without it's sun?
After a while the shock wore off and the grief set in. Her father left, giving some mudane excuse of 'needing to find himself', leaving her with her wreck of a mother. Her mother turned to drinking, and in turn, started to turn to abuse as well. At first it was only verbal, telling Essence things like 'It should have been you.' But then it turned more physical. At first that was only a few slaps, but then slaps turned into punches. And punches into black eyes and broken arms.
Knowing she had to escape, Essance saved up money and ran away when she was 14. She didn't know where she was going, and to her it really didn't matter. She just had to get away.
She ended up in New York City, a very unforgiving place, especially for a young girl with little money.
To survive she picked up pickpocketing and learned how to break into places. She never stayed the same place two nights in a row, she was a nomad in every sense.
One night she broke into what she assumed to be an unoccupied apartment, instead of solitude she found a boy, Lucas. He was nearly 18, almost four years older than her, and in a similar situation to her - but only better off. He offered to let her stay with him and Essence accepted out of despiration.
 Soon the two were more than just apartment mates though. They became oh so much more. Essence had finally found someone she could trust, someone she could depend on to keep her safe.
Lucas did just that and more, he bought her fine jewelry and roses. He took her to fancy restaurants and even gave her a promise ring.
Too bad that phase didn't last. A year later things started getting bad. Essence and Lucas began getting into arguments, small ones at first. But things only progressed. Before she knew it, Essence found herself in an abusive relationship. She didn't want to believe it though, she loved him. Instead of running as she should have done, she just pretended everything was fine. The pain he inflicted felt better than it would to be alone again.
One night Lucas came back drunk and they got into an exceptinally bad fight. It ended with Lucas going a bit too far and beating Essence into a non responsive state. He panicked and packed up his things. Before he left he made a deep slash across the veins in her arm, just to make certain she wouldn't be able to tell a soul what happened.
His plan to leave her to bleed out failed though, as a window washer happened to catch glance of her crumpled form.
Once Essence recovered she didn't know what to do. She found herself hanging around in clubs and pubs, just so she wouldn't be alone. She picked up horrible drinking habits and quite the reputation. She would do about anything to not feel so empty, even if that meant ripping off a brand new Mustang from a car dealership. Thus 'Nyx' was born.
As with everything else, she happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and landed herself in some legal trouble. Her options were to either attend Camp Sunshine or face jail time. The choice was obvious.

○●》[[ History ]] 《●○

August was born as an only child to a very happy and stable family. His life was structured with love and support. He was even quite good at school. The friend department was where he fell short. However, he made one good friend- a best friend- and was quite content with that. He and his best friend, Nick, did everything together. From kindergarten to highschool they were inseperable.
 Sophomore year was when all that changed. Nick drifted off, becoming more distant and focused on things such as parties and girls.
August stayed as he was, reading comic books and practicing piano along with schoolwork. It was like the two boys had never even known eachother.
 On February 5th at 2:51 A.M. August received a call from Nick. August took one look at the caller ID and chose to ignore it, even after three calls later. He didn't know what he could possibly have to say to him.
It wasn't until 9:15 P.M. the next day that August was informed Nick had committed suicide. August immediately felt to blame, if he had only picked up the phone Nick might still of been alive.
August fell into depression, staying in the darkness of his room and composing sad piano pieces.
His next stage of grief involved finding a coping mechanism. This turned out to be going wild, attending parties and adopting the reckless lifestyle that Nick had lived by for the last months of his life. He was hoping to find a piece of Nick within the chaos, instead all he found was a habit of drinking past feeling and getting himself into drunken brawls.
