Home State:




7/12/2009 #1

Name: Winfield S. Hancock (Though he would much rather prefer 'Win')

Age: 17

Home State: Pennsylvania

Appearance: At 17 he's done growing, is of average height and regular build. Dark hair and blue eyes.

Personality: Fun loving and known to be sarcastic at times. Can spout off one line remarks that can leave someone laughing or cause them to stop and stare, usually because the humor has gone over their head. He takes the courses at The Point very seriously and hopes to graduate somewhere above 'Last in Class'.

Background: Grew up with his identical twin brother in Pennsylvania. Though he was named after the prominent General, Winfield Scott, he had no intention of following a military carrier until he was nominated to The Point by a local Congressman.

SnowClaw of Windclan

Name: Gene Merck

Age: 18

Home State: Texas

Appearance: Gene is about average height, maybe a little bit shorter, with bright eyes and a cheerful expression. His hair is a chestnut color and cut a bit unevenly. He has a few varying shades in it but for the most part he has no natural highlights or darklights. His eyes are a light blue, with flecks of a darker shade, and his brows are a dark brown that contrasts nicely with his hair color. Gene is sharp-featured, and tends to walk around his dormitory in his socks.

Personality: He's friendly and amiable, and prefers to go with the flow instead of putting up a big hassle. He doesn't mind doing favors for others and has before taken the blame for his friends. However, he is airheaded and easily described as a ditz, with little or no common sense. It takes him a moment to register things before he understands them--he's usually the person that laughs last at a joke. He has the bad habit of zoning out in class and daydreaming, which he does quite often in innapropriate times. In these daydreams, ironically enough, he's usually thinking about becoming an officer. Gene is an idealist and thinks that the world can be perfect, eventually. For now he's just working on himself, although that progress has been hindered greatly because he tends not to focus on projects. He does fairly well under pressure and is an optimist. He has a way with horses and is a fairly skilled rider, but is also a terrible klutz and can't do anything without knocking something over. Gene tends to get injured a lot and takes things way too lightly. He is also known for eating weird things that he's made.

Background: Gene grew up working with cattle, so he's fairly skilled with animal-related tasks. His family was one of organized chaos, with three younger sisters and one older brother. There was never really a defined breadwinner, seeing as even the women of the house would sometimes go out to take care of the animals, but his mother maintained a firm hand over the family. His father often referred to her as the great puppetmaster. He spent most of his time outdoors with his father and brother.

He was nominated for West Point by a family friend that happened to be in politics, and his parents agreed to it. Although he had never really thought about it before (his thoughts had always been about helping continue the ranch after his brother, Bill, inherited it) he now figures that being a cavalry officer might be enjoyable. He spends most of his spare time around the horses and stables; riding is the one class he does seem to be able to sit through. His parents worry about how he will do because they know about his mentality.

SnowClaw of Windclan

Name: Felix Allard

Age: 42

Home State: South Carolina

Appearance: Felix is tall and thin, with long, thin fingers and shoulders that jut out sharply. He is overall gaunt in appearance, with hollow cheeks and light blue eyes that sharply contrast with his pupils, giving him a 'wild' look. His hair, dishwater blonde, is about ear length, and his bangs are longer, going all the way to the bottom of his nose and making his eyes unseen to his students--they can never tell when he is watching, and the lack of knowing whether he's giving eye contact even unnerves some of the staff. He grins widely, in a bizzarre sort of way that most find scary, and his laughter is particularly chilling. He has dark stubble on the bottom of his chin, a few whiskery hairs, but not a full beard. He is missing his right canine for reasons currently unknown, and his teeth are white-yellow in color, crooked. He smells strongly of chemicals and seems to leave a trail of powder wherever he goes, often creating quite a mess. Because of this he is rather frustrating to the other instructors. He doesn't take very much care of his personal hyegeine and is pretty dirty, and smells terrible.

Personality: Felix often goes into obsessive, trancelike states, and it has been said many times that his work is his one true love. He hates bright light and often laughs at innapropriate times, or laughs at things that aren't funny whatsoever. He feels guilt for these things, but doesn't usually express it. He tries to be friends with others but lacks social skills, so therefore he is almost always shunned or turned away. He tends to overdo physical contact simply because he isn't used to being close to other people. Felix is a caring, thoughtful individual, but very few if any understand the workings of his mind. He is sometimes delusional and is very off.

Background: Felix was, at one time, a physician, and left the hospital for reasons unknown...

Star the Foxhound

Name: Zelon Hayes

Age: 52

Home State: Virginia

Appearance: Skinny with dark blue eyes and thin black hair, just showing some signs of gray. His face is slim and there appears to be no fat on him so his face has a hollow start of appearance and his check bones are clearly visible. He's about average height.

Personality: Unusually quiet, Zemor also has quite a temper and doesn't mind punishing the students when he thinks they deserve it. Most of the students don't like him and try to avoid him when they do see him. He has a strong dislike for anyone he doesn't think is behaving or doing their work. Although some of the better students do like him.

Background: Grew up in Virginia and went to the Point himself, lived some of his life as a soldier but was wounded badly in the right leg, a wound which never recovered. As a result he was forced to leave the army and he becamea teacher instead. He still walks with a limp though. He teaches some of the classes that involve tactics and other military things.

Personality: Overall he is friendly and loyal to those he mets. Shawn loves to talk, even if what is being said has no importance. He'd also stick up for a friend even if doing so gets him in trouble. Often, Shawn tells people that he'd be willing to die for those he cares about.

Background: Shawn is an only child. His father was killed before he was even born, trying to protect his mother from a maniac trying to rob them. His mother did survive but she lost her mind over the death of his father and so Shawn was placed in an orphanage as a baby. The one thing he does carry of his family is his fathers looks, his fathers name and a picture from his parents wedding. He's never even met his mother. When Shawn was accepted inot the Point, he was very proud of himself and hopes one day to make a name for himself.

12/10/2009 . Edited 12/17/2009 #18

Name: Trevor Johnson

Age: 19

Home State: New York

Appearance: Tall, Trevor has a sturdy build but is proportionate to his height. Fair skinned, he came from a higher class family so he was rarely caught outside. Sandy hair and green eyes that would be very friendly if not for the smug and pompous expression he tends to wear. His civilian clothes are all made special for him by a tailor, a fact that he often boasts on.

Personality: Trevor is always looking for trouble, he expects everything to be done for him, because he is an only child with parents who cater to his every whim. Abrasive and often offending to those he speaks with, and is obvious without many friends. Though fellow students tend to stay away from him, his instructors grudgingly admit that he's got the fortitude of an officer and is sharp as a nail. As said before he's wealthy and has pricey clothing, (His mother doesn't even know how to sew.) He also shows off the thoroughbred colt his father bought him the previous year as a gift for his "acceptance" to The Point. (Though he still doesn't know how to handle the animal.) He thinks these things will impress the other students when really it does the opposite.

He's difficult to deal with, but in reality, he only needs someone to look at him for who he is. He s so used to putting up a front for the people his parents associate with, he has no knowledge of what a true friend is. If given the opportunity, he would drop the facade. If his fellow students let him live that long anyway....

Background: Grew up an only child in New York. Was given everything he wanted without question. Was accepted to The Point because of the connections and money his parents have.
