Detailed Physical Description:
“You're late,” Mr. Science teacher said.
“Sorry,” the offender replied as I looked up from my book curiously. The boy was of about average height with broader shoulders. He was facing away from me, so I couldn't see his eyes, but his dark curly hair was cut close to his head, as opposed to the shag teenage boys typically had. I was too far away to hear what he and Mr. Science teacher were saying, so I went back to my book, less than interested in the new student.
“Ms. O'Connor.” I looked up, startled. A few of the prep clones giggled. “Mr. Cerva-vah-be-”
“Cervantes,” the new boy cut in, saving Mr. Science teacher the trouble of trying to say his name.
“Yes, well,” Mr. Science teacher said, “He's going to be your new partner.”

RedPath | 562 comments His favorite color should be silver and he should like sharpies :)

He should also dislike ceiling fans because the wind they make sets him on edge.

Does he like watching sports? If so, which ones? Perhaps he should be a decent artist too? Does he collect anything? Rocks, or interesting pieces of glass?

As for personality, you could look at the Chinese/Western Zodiac to look for traits that he might have. At least, that what I do when I'm stuck :)

He should totally dislike cherries and bananas. Maybe they had a bad place in his early life?
