the characters of Parkview Place

Post by Bang Your Drum » Sun 23rd Jun 2013

Parkview Place is the name of the 5 year+ writing project I have.
It revolves around the going ons in an upper middle class community in Southeastern Pennsylvania (they say write what you know, right? Image)
It's Pretty Little Liars with literal dirt...road kill and existentialism. The struggle of all young adults to both conform and be seen as individuals.

The Players
Emelia "Em" Green (main protagonist)
Cosmo Green (Em's brother)
Rodger "Darby" Green (Em and Cosmo's father)
Amika Walstrom (Em and Cosmo's mother)

Penelope "Penn" Pembrooke (Em's best friend since childhood)

Jo Svenson (Kirby and Rookie's mother)
Kirby Svenson (Em's first boyfriend)
Rachel "Rookie" Svenson (Kirby's half sister)

Dorinda "Dorrie" Manana Ambrose (Marina's twin)
Marina Dia Ambrose (Dorrie's twin)

Amanda "the man" Tyler (police investigator)

Brian Braverman (one of Marina's lovers, boyfriend of Cy Beulahs)

Cy Beulahs (Marina's "other man" boyfriend of Brian)

The Em Post

Image

Name: Emelia "Em" Green
Nicknames: Ed (mostly goes by this) or Lalo (in Spanish Class)
Facial Type/Features: large square jaw, curved nose.
Skin Tone: dark olive erring on light brown
Eyes: dark blue
Hair: reddish brown waves, cut fairly close to minimize tangles.
Clothing preppy but in a geeky way (polo shirts tucked into dark jeans) wears nice athletic shoes. Shirts from science fairs/school events. Lots of stripes and bold primary colors.
Body Type thick waisted with muscles (but "luv handles" as well)
Gender: male
Age: the first book is when he is 15/16 (younger in flash backs, and presumably older in later books/volumes)
Date of Birth: May 15th
Ethnicity: Native American and Sri Lankan on his mother's side, his father is white and Jewish (Ashkenazi)
Orientation: he is mainly attracted to men
Significant Other: Kirby Svenson
Living Arrangements: lives with his father' mother, and little brother
Occupation: high school student
Pets: none
Religion: under revision
Hobbies: the school's science club, stargazing, and a show-within-the story which is like Game of Thrones meets Homeland (but set in a vaguely vintage world)
Likes: Penelope, the smell of fresh laundry, the non fiction section, his little brother, learning, previously mentioned tv show (name coming soon), Kirby, pencils that come pre-sharpened and ready to use straight out of the box.
Dislikes: his father's lack of common sense, laundry day, Penelope's fanfic, Kirby's (more than occasional) lapses in common decency, places that are not pedestrian friendly (or are and the people in cars didn't seem to get the memo)
Best At: getting work done
Worst At: expressing himself

Inspirations: visually he's based on very old fan arts I drew of Julius Root (pre series fan works yay) he's far more like Artemis though. There's some Sam Tyler in there too.

Date of Birth: November 26th (about a month early)
Ethnicity: Her father is/was a WASP (and a non blood relation to the Vanderbilts) her mother is/was Mexican American
Orientation: heterosexual
Significant Other: Nate ——- (she refuses to label him as a “hookup-which he pretty much would appear to be, seeing as how little they communicate/have in common)
Living Arrangements: She lives with parents and sister in a small “rustic” mansion, next to a small, deciduous “jungle”
Occupation: high school student
Pets: n/a
Religion: agnostic
Hobbies: wandering around the woods, talking to Spider (see “other”), horses back riding (she also loves drawing them-not that she’d ever admit it)

Dislikes: Her sister’s friends, her school, youth-orientated media and pop culture in general, being secretly broke
Best At: thinking up witty things to say
Worst At: actually speaking her mind

other: While she and Marina are made from the same egg, they had a brother-Eden-who Dorrie absorbed, so she isn’t technically Marina’s identical twin (she also shares her mind with him)
