"It's funny, watching the puddles form, and the leaves fall in autumn. It were as if we were just at the discretion of mother nature, as opposed to vice versa." -Gregory Todd

Character Description

Gregory stands at 5'7" tall, and is rather thin weighing slightly north of 135 pounds. He has long, blond, reckless hair that has not been attended to for some time. His description is usually unwoven and can be described as 'careless' he very rarely showers, wears worn clothing and is quite proud of his counterculturist-esque appearance. He is very handsome and, unbeknownst to him, has become a major heartthrob at Bullworth Academy, his rebellious nature has attracted many girls.

Characteristics

Geeky and nerdy, but also quietly rebellious Gregory mostly avoids personal relationships, not out of any desire to be a loner, but because he does not know how to really create lasting relationships. Watching his parents fight tore him apart and he grows to be very cynical and withdrawn from those around him. His one form of self expression that he is tied down to is music. To him it is a very easily accessible way to convey his emotions and thoughts. As such he has developed into being a very good guitar player, and singer and has also sought out to learn how to drum, and even play the piano. He is also big into reading and prefers to read stories of tragedy and struggle, his favorite author is William S Burroughs.

As part of his cynical views until proven otherwise he sees everyone around him, potentially, as a threat. His one real friend in the world is Erick Boucher, another dissident who's a product of his environment. Gregory is a problem solver, and a thinker. He does not act on impulse and prefers to handle situations as neatly as he can without getting himself, or others, hurt. Though not opposed to getting his hands dirty, playing it safe has gotten him far in the places he grew up in and being a quick thinker has saved him on multiple occasions.

Background

Gregory Todd grew up in Bullworth and has never escaped the confines of the small town. He does enjoy it to a further extent though he often holds a contemplative ideology of the town that has molded him his entire life. Growing up his parents had divorced when he was eleven and he never really recovered from that burden. He began to rebel against both maternal units in an effort, to hopefully, get them to reunite to control his delinquency. That, however, proved unattainable, as his parents both agreed to shove him into the academy and be done with him.

His mother lives in a studio apartment that resides in Old Bullworth Vale, whilst his father still possesses his childhood home in New Coventry.

Relationships

Friends:

Joshua Hyde: The two met at a beach party awhile back and soon started to hangout. Gregory admires his selfless nature, but also his wit and ability to make decisions on the fly. When the two were being pursued by the Preps it was Joshua's quick decision making that saved them from being apprehended. They both have a similar perception of Bullworth, and a similar philosophy on life which leads to them having deep, intimate discussions.

Erick Boucher: Erick is Gregory's best friend. They've been friends since they were both little and have relied on one another to survive in New Coventry. They're both rebels though Gregory is sometimes unnerved by just how far Erick will go to rebel against the system, as Gregory thinks acting out is fine as long as it is within reason.

Norton Williams: Another childhood friend Norton and Gregory would always gather at the beach to watch the sunset. In their younger days Gregory actually had a crush on Norton but that has since passed as the two have grown. Though the two maintain a strong friendship it has gone through a problematic stage as Gregory detests his friends' tough guy persona.

Acquaintances:

Michael Jones: One night walking home from detention Gregory was ambushed by the Preps and was beaten and bloodied. Michael jumped in and beat the Preps, saving him. Gregory is quite thankful for Michael's assistance. Since then the two haven't really connected. Gregory finds Michael's willingness to fight anyone worrying.

Lola Lombardi: Gregory was once close friends with Lola. This friendship came to an abrupt end the previous year when Johnny started to go after Gregory and accuse him of hitting on her.

Enemies:

Johnny Vincent: Though they aren't considered to be violent rivals Johnny hates Gregory, believing that he was putting the moves on his girl.

Greasers: The Greasers won't outright target him but they won't put up with him amicably either. The only reason they won't beat him up is because Norton and Gregory are good friends.

Tad Spencer: Gregory hates Tad as the two quickly became direct rivals. In one case Gregory went about spray painting his car and Tad paid a bully to beat him up.

Malcolm Evans: Gregory fears Malcolm after seeing him dispose of three Townies at once he finds him to be the scariest of them. The fact that Malcolm beat Bif, another Prep he is frightened of, in a boxing match only furthers the fear he has of him.
