APPEARANCE
a
FACE
• hair
      length: short, but long enough to run your fingers through it
      color: natural redhead
      style: usually styled as a messy mop of hair at the top of his head, letting it fall however it does after a few careless strokes through it in the morning
• eyes
      shape: almond-shaped
      color: a dark blue, looking almost gray in certain lighting
• skin
      complexion: fair skin
      ethnicity: caucasian
      imperfections: no real imperfections/scars on his face
• notable facial features: sharp jawline, average lips, rarely smiles but when he does it's *muah* perfect


BODY
• height: 5'9''
• weight: 153 lbs
• build: thin frame
• shape: toned, but by no means insanely muscular. in good shape.
• body modifications: has a single tattoo on his back from his gang days
• scars/imperfections: has some scars from a stab wound and bullet wounds on his abdomen, but aside from that he's pretty well off... all things considers

HEALTH
• mentally: addy has a lot of mental thoughts he has always shoved down and never processed. mentally unwell.
• physically: in great health.
• emotionally: will never be emotionally stable

AESTHETIC

• style: if addy ever looks dressed to impressed, then it really is a special occasion. usually his go-to outfit has to be any random cotton-shirt he can't find and then some jeans. he really doesn't put much thought into what he wears; he wears what he has, and that's all he really needs.
• scent: vanilla and the faint smell of cigarettes
• common facial expressions: his face is usually rather stoic, unless he's pissed off. then he looks totally pissed (eyebrows furrowed, a slight scowl on his features or his lips are pouted slightly).

HISTORY
a
addy was born out of wedlock to veronica “ronnie” smith and jim douglas, two young adults who hadn’t exactly been ready for parenthood. neither came from affluent families - as a matter of fact, they were both the complete opposite. they could barely afford the apartment they lived in, nonetheless another mouth to feed. jim had wanted ronnie to abort the child, but while she wasn’t ready for parenthood, she’d always wanted to have a child. so on october 25th, they had addy.

the redhead never really got to experience any sort of lavish lifestyle, nor the simple things in life. he never had a backyard, or a pet, or toys that other parents would buy their own kids without second thought. sometimes he’d have to skip a few meals. but addy was fine with that. the boy had never known or cared for anything better than what he had. then everything took a turn for the worst on his seventh birthday. his dad had left in the morning, promising to come back with the cake - only to never come back. all he remembers from his birthday is his mother screaming at jim on the phone before leading addy to the couch, and explaining to him that his father had abandoned them.

from that day, everything began to spiral. his mother couldn’t cope with the loss of addy’s father, and was quick to find solace in drugs. money had been tight enough, and addy’s mom was making the budget even tighter. memories of that time of his life would be his mom stealing the piggy bank full of his birthday money to go and buy drugs for herself, having to walk himself home after school because his mom would forget, and finding nights without a meal becoming more common than ever before. life had become hell for him as a kid, but he fought tooth and nail for everything that he had.

he ended up joining a gang in late grade school/middle school. it didn’t give him much, but it provided him with family that ran deeper his blood-related connections. there he learned how to fend for himself. he pick-pocketed from passerby, stole from stores and shops, and learned how to fight. he learned all of his street smarts from the gang, and they’re the family he never really got to have. 

once he was finally able to (legally) get a job, he dropped out of high school. it would’ve been impossible to be his mother’s babysitter, work, and go to school, so something had to give, he supposed. so he got rid of the thought of ever getting a high school diploma to try and find a job that could support him and his mom. however, every place in the city was quick to turn a poor street rat down for their open positions -- except for one place: the local gay strip club. he worked as a stripper there, and he was honestly making some good money, there. he was earning a good living. he could pay for the apartment’s rent and utility bill, and afford to put food on the table. sure, his mother still needed him to take care of her, but she promised that she would quit (deep down, addy knew that wouldn’t happen, but he sometimes let himself believe her). things were finally looking up for him.

but then, as always, things could never stay that way. after coming home late from work one night, he walked in to find his mother dead on the living room floor. she’d suffered a fatal overdose. addy felt conflicted, and he felt even more frustrated he felt that way. he was absolutely devastated - his mother had been shit to him, but he’d loved her so much. but he was also… somewhat relieved.

eventually, he quit the stripper business to start drug dealing. he left the gang, but still keeps in touch with them by supplying them with his product. he has done well for himself so far, and wishes to someday own a house with a big back yard and a white picket fence, like the posh neighborhoods in his city.
