Hey, if a cap is coming, I've gotta prepare. This was the one I was gonna use instead of Sidney, but then I thought of Sidney, so...*shrug* Being as a dice roll's coming up, my bet is I'm gonna lose at least someone, so...anyway, here 'e is.
Name: Gillaume "Gilbert" Archambault
Extra Curricular Activity: Chess Club, Swim Team, Astronomy Club, Honour Roll, photographer for the yearbook.
School: Barry Coleson High School
Appearance: Gilbert isn't exactly the kind of person that people would pick out of a crowd and say 'hey, there's Gilbert'. In fact, it's pretty much the opposite. He blends into the crowd, mainly because of the fact that he's really quite short. He hasn't yet had the growth spurt that any of his other classmates have had, and as such stands at a miserable (in his eyes) 5'0 and a half. While he's rather short, he's also fairly scrawny, not overly so, but enough so that his clothes hang very loosely off of his wiry frame. He has quite an impressive complexion, one that he's surprised he has, especially for the atypical ninth grader. He has deep blue eyes and jet black hair that hangs over his ears and sometimes over his eyes. Complimenting his face are a thin pair of glasses that he needs to read with. Of course, because of the fact that he's very self-conscious of his sight (which isn't that bad to begin with) he very rarely takes them off, although he hardly needs them. Fashion-wise, he's surprisingly low-key when it comes to his fashions. He buys whatever seems to suit him, and when the class was taken for SOTF, he was wearing a dark green t-shirt, a dark blue button-up shirt with short sleeves, and a pair of cargo pants. He never goes anywhere without his prized possession - his Blackberry, which is usually clipped onto his waist.
Biography: Gilbert was the kind of kid who grew up in the average part of town, with moderately rich parents and not a whole hell of a lot of conflict in his life. His parents, both originally from Quebec, moved to New York just as Gilbert was born, choosing the hustle and bustle of a job in NYC over the quiet country living of Northern Quebec. Everything was going great for Gilbert until the first year of high school. He found that he grew apart from several of his close friends, and his mother suggested that he join a few clubs. Of course, the clubs that Gilbert chose to join, with the notable exception of the swim team, didn't do much to further the perception that Gilbert was a nerd. Of course, he wasn't exactly the least athletic person in the world, but his small frame made him pretty terrible at such sports like football and hockey. He was a pretty talented soccer player, and although he was cut from the team, the coach told him to try out next year, when most of the seniors on the team would be gone. Little did he know...
Gilbert got teased quite a bit during his first year of high school, because if you see a kid with a french last name, who's in the chess club, the astronomy club, isn't blatantly athletic, is short, and has obviously not completely finished puberty yet, you're almost bound to get made fun of. Gilbert took this mostly in stride, but he harbored some pretty big feelings of resentment towards his fellow classmates; not for the bullying itself, but mainly for the fact that nobody else seemed to give a damn. Gilbert isn't one of those typically 'repressed anger' kids, but is rather just really frustrated at his adjustment from public school to high school. The year-end trip was supposed to be a way for him to make new friends, and try to find some people that he could really connect to, so that he'd be able to have some fun this summer.
Gilbert's a pretty quiet kid, who doesn't speak much, unless someone speaks to him, and when they do, he speaks quite a bit. If he doesn't like someone, he'll be very cold towards them, and will try and ignore them. Gilbert harbours frustrations towards a few people, mainly the members of the baseball team, and a few of the music students, most of whom were the people behind his torment.
Other: Gilbert takes things in stride, and no matter what happens to him, he just tries to press on and move on with his life. His parents always told him to 'not dwell on the past' and to 'look ahead to the present'. He gets shy around girls, and still has trouble looking them in the eye and having a coherent conversation with them. Unfortunately for him, older students intimidate him, because he sees many of them as mean.

Everything about that application screamed 'awful'. No way in hell can I even begin to approve this character.
