Appearance ★
5 foot 6 inches tall. Fluffy brown hair that's rather unruly. A cute little button like nose. Full-ish lips which have a piercing on the left side. Freckles across the bridge of his nose (like his mom) Blue-green eyes (they lean more towards the green side).

Ambidextrous, left, or right handed?: ★
He's ambidextrous. As a small child he struggled deciding which hand to write with, eat with, and throw with. Emery was right handed but his biological mother was a lefty. Not wanting to force Riley to make a decision... Emery encouraged him to use both his right and left. Though he tends to favor his left hand slightly more than his right when it comes to things like writing and eating.

Who does he take after; mother or father? ★
Seeing as he grew up not knowing his mother... Riley mimicked his father more. Though as he's grown up some of his facial expressions, according to those who knew his mother well; are carbon copies of hers. His personality resembles his father's when he was young. Being fairly shy, quiet, reclusive, timid, and creative. Though his mother was quite an inventor when she was young which is where he get his out of the box approach to problem solving.

Style (Elegant, shabby, etc): ★
His style is based around comfort. He typically wears layers since the weather can be unpredictable AND layers help protect one in the event of being bitten. More layers means more defense against possible infection. Some might say he looks like a 90's kid mixed with some hipster-ish vibes. He likes over sized jackets a lot and plaid flannel shirts. It's rare any of his clothing looks in pristine condition as he's often out adventuring and finding ways to rip up a decent pair of jeans.

How does he dress or what do they typically wear?: ★
Plaid, lots of plaid. He wears jeans, plaid, band tees and worn out sneakers. Sometimes he'll wear combat looking lace up boots if he doesn't want to completely destroy his comfy sneakers. He also wears beanies as he's not really a fan of brushing his fluffy hair and would much rather hide it.

Other outfits one might find in their wardrobe: ★
Plaid flannel shirts, the occasional band shirt, baggy jackets, overalls, suspenders, the rare button down shirt or two. Mainly really casual comfy clothes since that's what he enjoys wearing.

Jewelry and/or other accessories: ★
His lip ring, both ears are pierced with some gauges, thick rimmed glasses, and a beanie to cover his bed head.

Weapons: ★
Shotgun, pistols, led pipe, crowbar, swiss army knife, hunting knives, and his frying pan (it's multi functional in a pinch!)

Health: ★
He's very health conscious mainly because he doesn't want to get sick. He loathes being visited by the doctor and having his check ups. So, in attempts to avoid getting poked and prodded; Ri does his best to mind what he eats, keeps some medical supplies stocked up, and gets exercise when he goes out on excursions (all that cardio!)

Hygiene: ★
He could be better about brushing his teeth twice a day buuuuut sometimes he forgets. Overall he's not a smelly little booger. He does his best to not offend people with any foul odors (or himself as he's not got the strongest stomach around).

Physical Flaws: ★
Do moles count? He's got a few of those. As far as serious physical flaws go... he doesn't have any. Maybe a scar here or there from close calls but that's about it.

Physical Qualities: ★
Has excellent hearing, fast reaction times, and generally is in good shape for someone his age. He might be a tad bit shorter than the other boys in the community and gets teased about that but it's whatever.

Is he generally balanced or clumsy?: ★
He has his clumsy moments but those aren't too often. Though if he's lost in thought and oblivious to his surroundings he's a hazard to himself and anyone nearby. He's been known to trip over nothing..... oops.

Describe their mannerisms/poses/movement: ★
He tends to slump over. His posture isn't that great. Normally he spends most of his time crouched over his lab tables or curled up in a large chair reading books. When he goes out in public he tries to stand up straight since he's rather short. When he's nervous he picks at the hem of his jacket sleeves or rocks on his heels. Sometimes he shrinks into himself if he's really feeling nervous.

Describe their walk: ★
Usually he walks fast since he has something in mind and needs to be somewhere.

Habits/OCDs/Obsessions: ★
Picking at the hem of his jacket sleeves. Chewing on his lower lip when he gets nervous. Tugging on his hat.

Speech patterns: ★
Has a bit of a stutter. The stuttering gets worse depending on the social situation.

Unique phrases: ★
"Make the most of today because you aren't promised a tomorrow."

Do they curse, and if so, to what extent: ★
Ehh...he curses more often that he'd like to admit. He's not proud of it but his "Uncle" has a bit of a foul mouth.

Write a piece of dialogue that this character might say: ★
"It's hard to imagine there's a God sometimes. Why? Because if there really was one then why would He have let us get to this low point in human history? We're dying....everything seems so bleak and past saving. I know I shouldn't say this but if He won't save us then I guess someone has to do it...." A sigh escapes his lips. "And I guess I'm that somebody."

Describe their voice: ★
It's light and has a melodic quality to it. His voice gets higher when he's more nervous but when he's comfortable around a person then it lowers to his normal tone.

Describe their sleep patterns: ★
Erratic. Unpredictable. He can go on two full days without sleep or hibernate. It just depends on his projects.

Describe their eating patterns/diet: ★
His eating schedule is varied. He eats when he remembers to do so. It's just one of the many things he needs to work on.

Describe their house/dwelling: ★
A two story family home. One of the bigger if not the biggest house in their tiny community. Sometimes it doubles as a "town hall" for meetings.

Describe their bedroom: ★
Messy, unorganized, and looks like a mini tornado went through it. He has stacks of items which is how he attempts to "organize".

Relationship skills: ★
Mainly inexperienced in this area. He's decent at being somewhat friendly with people he feels comfortable around but due to his shy timid nature it's difficult for him to delve deeper into relationships.

Crushes: ★
Sage Jones... Shhh! He's just got an infectious personality.

Boyfriend: ★
Farris -- current bf

Other lovers: ★
Nobody. Farris is the first real person to fit into the "lover" category.

First crush: ★
Hmm.... Sage? Something about his outgoing personality kinda drew Riley in.

Who was it?: ★
Sage Jones. The son of his dad's college friend Skyler Jones. They grew up together inside the little community and became close friends. They're still friends even though a relationship past that never really bloomed. They joke about it but just jokingly (mainly to ruffle Farris' feathers which is entertaining)

How did it start?: ★
One day while they were playing tag outside Sage tripped and knocked Riley over. Their little faces were so close which caused Riley's little face to light up bright red like a Christmas light bulb. The two kind of stared at one another for a moment trying to see who'd speak up first or well move for that matter. It was Sage who finally broke the ice by apologizing for bulldozing poor Riley and offered the other a hand to get up. Riley timidly accepted before going back into the one room school to regain his composure.

Did it last?: ★
Nope! But they became very close friends. Sage is one of the few people who can really get through to Riley when he gets stuck inside his own head. His outgoing, silly, happy go lucky nature compliments Riley's timid, reclusive, shy personality. They bring out the strengths of one another and challenge the other to be the best them they can be.

What do they consider to be a romantic setting/activity/date?: ★
Taking a stroll around sunset. Listening to jazz or classical music in a dimly lit room with a nice beverage.

What did they do on their first date?: ★
Riley didn't plan anything. It was actually Farris' idea. The two went for a stroll around sunset and found a picture perfect spot to have a quiet little picnic while they watched the sunset and the stars begin to illuminate the night sky. They sat on the picnic blanket for what felt like ages as they talked about anything and everything. After they cleaned up they had a cool dessert at Farris' house to wrap up the date. He walked Riley home and they had an cute yet embarrassing first kiss at the front door step.

How does a typical date go for this character?: ★
Wondering around meadows, stargazing, watching sunsets, chatting, listening to music, or snuggling up together.

How would they like to propose or be proposed to?: ★
Something sweet and more along the quiet side. Nothing too flashy. Now if it was up to Riley...haha...he seriously lacks a romantic side (or it's just really underdeveloped).

Has this character lost their virginity?: ★
That's none of your business. How rude!

How sexual is he?: ★
This is a topic that's not really up for discussion. Riley is a private person and this is a private matter so butt out!

How does he feel emotionally after sex?: ★
This answer got lost .....

Does this character have self-control around individuals of their sexual desire?: ★
He's good about having self-control. Not to mention he's just a super shy baby.

Does sex play an important role in their relationships and to what extent?: ★
Not really. So long as they have good communication, respect for one another, make time to for one another, and love each other then that's really what counts. There's so many ways to show one cares....

Turn-ons: ★
Intelligence, charisma, and a good sense of humor.

Turn-offs: ★
Ignorance, cruelty, and general rudeness .
