[sblock= Description] Terry is tall, has a muscular build, which was necessary for tackling into whatever offense team he needed to face. He has blue eyes and need-a-haircut-short dark hair, which he usually gels up before going anywhere. He doesn't wear his college football jersey anymore, it triggers bad memories. Oddly enough he has no such qualms playing football with some friends on weekends, not since he sanded off the team logo off his gear. When working in fast food, he wears a bold red/orange uniform and a matching cap, but prefers jeans. He also has a little gold chain on his neck with a tiny violet carved on it - a gift from one of his ex-girlfriends.

History: [sblock= History] In the mundane world, Terry was a Linebacker for his college football team, a bit of a bully, too, just like his friends back at his old hometown. He had few other interests but he does like various fields of history, and to sew with needle-and-thread when alone in his room - a hobby he kept secret from everyone until recently. Terry was recently expelled from college on account of vandalism on campus grounds, because all of his "friends" quickly pinned the blame on him. He doesn't like to talk about it much. Though Terry regrets the whole ordeal greatly,(that's for certain,) his silence on the matter might not help his parents and teachers understand why he did it. He got a job at a small street food chain not far from his home, and he tries to make a little extra cash in his spare time, by selling what he can sew and knit, or potentially gambling late at night, if he could find a group in his new neighborhood.

What he'll find out when he crosses to the other side, is that his new home also offers a new life, new friends, new opportunities and new problems, all of which are absolutely not in the traditional sense!

Currently on her person, assuming the long car ride, was her pink, iPhone with jeweled cover, her iPad covered in a picture of her and Brad kissing in their respective cheer outfits, pink headphones, her sun glasses (case in backpack) and the ever present lip gloss.
