Quinton Steele: Quinton
is kind of based off of myself, but just barely .I used my small case
of social phobia to show how he is around people he doesn't know.
I would be very afraid of what people thought of me. I hated going
into places where I didn't know people, so I took that fear and amplified
it. Quinton has my fears except with Quinton, it almost hinders him
from doing things. In school is he very reserved and seems like a
quiet kid. Throughout the story, however, people try to take advantage
of that and we learn that he isn't as innocent or helpless as we think.
He gets into a few fights throughout the story. I don't know what
Quinton looks like. There is a description in the story and he shares
some of my accessories, such as my four hoop earrings, but by no means
does he look like me. As far as his name goes, I have a think for
soft first names and hard last names. I think that came from this
movie called Iron Will where the kid was named Will Stone.
Ever since then, that is how my characters are named. Stone, Locke,
Steel, and Night are some of the last names I have used. I love Quinton
because he is growing like a real person. I like writing him.
Ali Stone: This
guy has gone through some names. He originated in Seasons of Love
as Troy, but then turned into Tyro. After that story was scrapped
I kept some of his qualities such as his dominance over the main character,
not that he pushes the main character around, but he always seems
to be in control or the one with the most knowledge. The rest of this
guy I made up from this guy from my High School. His name was Kenneth
Evans and I used to just watch this guy and think up a story for him.
Ali has all of this guy's looks, but that is probably it. Kenneth
had a body like he played football so I made Ali an ex-football player.
From there, I made up the rest. Kenneth was new to our school, but
I tried to imagine what type of reputation this guy might have had
he started school in the 9th grade. Kenneth had sort of a high voice
and spoke somewhat proper, but I made Ali have a deeper voice and
more of a street way of speakin'. Ali is definitely the one in control
and his often acts a big brother to Quinton, but Quin becomes the
same thing when Ali has problems. Ali is a cool guy. He is popular
in school, but he doesn't act like most of the popular folks. He will
talk to anyone, which is one of the reasons he and Quinton became
this girl has gone through some changed. Physically she has stayed
the same though. She has always been a light skinned girl with a gorgeous...
everything. She has long black hair that goes down her back and some
nice curves. She is based off of this girl at my school named, Wanda,
I believe. She has some of her sassy qualities, but I didn't know
her well enough to put everything into the story. Now, in Seasons
of Love, Jasmine was dating Justin's friend and Jasmine was trying
to get with Justin. In Exile the friend is gone and so now
it is just Quinton and Jasmine flirting. Jasmine is intrigued by Quinton.
Probably because he is so quiet and she sees that as him being mysterious.
Quinton likes her a lot too, but can get very shy when she is around.
I don't know what lies in their future though.
Yanikos Syler: Another
guy based off someone I knew in high school. In fact, the guy's name
was Yanikos (probably a different spelling though). He and I were
friends throughout 11th grade so the guy I'm writing is a little closer
to the real thing than the others. I came up with Yanikos' character
one day in class. Now, if you ever saw Yanikos in real life, you would
think that he was one of the best looking guys in the world. I mean
this dude had the prettiest eyes I have ever seen on a guy. He had
long braids that weren't nappy and had this flawless light skin. To
go with that, he had a pretty nice body. Only thing was he was a little
short and his voice was a little high and nasal. Not annoying, but
fair from that deep Barry White voice that girls seem to love. You
would also think that this guy was popular, but he wasn't. He was
just one of the little runts running around the school. Strange huh?
Well that is the same case in Exile. Quinton wonders how
the hell this guy could not be popular and he finds out soon enough.
Now if you ever have the chance of reading the chapters that he is
in or if you read the scene, I want you to know that it isn't him
exactly. He was not found in Seasons of Love. I like this
guy because he is dealing with some real problems too and just like
Quinton, they are realistic. I also like the stubborn way he tries
to handle them.
Tony (Step father):
When I thought up Tony, I knew I needed the ultimate jerk in the world.
So who better than the worse boss I had ever had? This guy was evil
to me. While the female workers got to do office work, I handled supplies
and cleaning. Not to mention, this guy seriously hated me and I hated
him. Any time he had a problem, instead of telling me, he went to
my aunt who he was friends with. One thing I will never forget about
this guy was his cocked eyes. Well, Tony is this guy minus being horribly
fat and cock eyed. He seems to hate Quinton because he feels that
Quin lacks manhood.
Physically, she looks like my old friend Willie's mother. She is kind
of smoky, if I had to give her a color. She is dark and round. She
is also rather lazy. Whenever she needs anything she calls up to Quinton
to do it for her. It's strange because the question of rather she
really loves Quinton has come up to me as I continued to write this
story and eventually I found out. I guess you will have to read it
to figure that out. Elizabeth was just hard to figure out and still
is that way.
