Date this chart was completed: 2/23/2012
Character's Full Name: Edward Lee Sullivan
Reason or meaning of name: It is derived from Old English words ead (meaning "happy" or 'prosperous') and weard (meaning "guard" wink .
Nickname: Ed, Eddy, Sullie (Only Zanda calls him this.)
Reason for nickname: First two because it's shortened, or popular, I suppose. Third because of his last name.
Birthday: August 3rd
Astrological Sign: Leo
Age: Depends on the point in the story. Currently, around 21.
How old does s/he appear? Again, this depends.
Eye Color: Grey.
Glasses or contacts? Neither.
Hair color: Silver.
Distinguishable hair feature (bald, receding hairline, etc.): It's white/silver, bro.
Type of hair (coarse, fine, thick, etc.)? Fine. (Like the rest of him ;D)
Typical hairstyle: Messy. It's left the way it falls when he wakes up, unless he's doing something important, or he and Russell had hot sex the night before. Can't walk around with sex hair.
Weight: 180; he played football nearly all his life.
Type of body/build: Muscular, but not a body-builder or anything. Most of his strength is in his legs.
Skin tone: Milky-white. Unless he's been playing; then he's got... Something like a farmer's tan going on.
Skin type: Rough. (Assuming this has to do with.. Consistency, or whathaveyou.)
Shape of face: Long; heart-shaped.
Distinguishing Marks? Faint track marks in his left arm. Obvious he abused drugs to anyone who might pay attention.
Scars? A few in various places; mainly from football.
Most predominant feature: Hair/eyes.
Resembles (famous or not): I really haven't given this one much thought.
Is s/he healthy? For a moment, after being left by Russell, he was in a state of mental turmoil. Physically, though, he's fine.
If not, why not: Already explained. Adolescents facing rejection go a little crazy. At least he did.
Physical disabilities: As I said, physically, he's fine. Unless you count his doing drugs for a while, and frying his brain a little, although I believe that would be considered more of a mental disorder brought on by physical decisions.
Physical abilities (what is character good at? sports, etc.): He's amazing at sports. Athletic as hell. Because he is/once was a good athlete, he is/was always found in a good mood. Sports were the best way for him to get all his troubles out of his system in a recreational way.
Music: Rock (this is one thing he and Amber really connected on, both of them loving Metallica)
Food: Anything Italian
Literature: Pfft, Edward's not a bookworm.
Book: ^ (See two above)
Quote: "You better cut the pizza in four pieces, because I'm not hungry enough to eat six."
Expletive(s) (swears): Eddy doesn't really swear. About the worst you'll hear from his mouth is when he's hanging with Zanda. He might call him a cockbite, or a douche-canoe.
Mode of transportation: Car.
What? Cigarettes, mainly. He's smoked a little crack, a little MJ, and tried a few other substances, but cigarettes have yet to be quit.
How often? Depends. If he's around people who smoke, he smokes more. If he's stressed, he smokes a ton. Eh, generally moderate, though.
Drinks: Not anymore.
How often? ^ (See two above). He has a family to think of. Back when he was doing drugs, drinking was an every day affair.
Worst bad habit? Doing drugs, which he quit. Because of the drugs, he's obtained this nice habit of constantly playing with his fingernails; biting them, picking at them, running the pad of his thumb against them, breaking them, etc.
Quirks: Leg shaking?
Hometown: I dunno.
Type of childhood: Challenging, but he lived through it. I've never given his father thought, but his mother's a drunk, and he's got a younger brother and sister. Eventually, she loses them, and the kids are dumped into his lap by the state.
First memory: Visiting his aunt's house when he was little, and accidentally setting her living room on fire.
Most important childhood event that still effects him/her: He doesn't let much effect him. He had football to distract him. First thing to really get to him was rejection from his first love interest.
Lower education: I know what this is, but don't know what to say.
Higher education: Still kinda working on this, depending on time-frame.
Book-smart or street-smart? Street-smart. Ish.
Religion and/or religious views and/or tendencies? Nope.
Job? Haven't given this one any thought.
Kiss? Some girl at a slumber party when he was about seven or eight. Truth or Dare is to blame, of course. Poor kid was scrubbing off cooties for days.

Mother (name): Robin Chandler (Never married/changed last name back after possible divorce?)
Relationship with her: He only talks to her to talk to the kids, until they're dumped in his lap.
Father (name): Dunno.

Children of Siblings: None.
Extended family (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.): No one important.
Close to family? Only siblings.
Does character have child(ren)? Yep.
How many? Seven. Would have been eight.. But the first was miscarried, due to knife. It's a pretty complicated situation. Abusive boyfriend, Sven, with Russell at the time. Whores him out. Edward stumbles across Russell. They have unprotected sex. Russell gets pregnant. Sven knows it's not his, so he quite literally slams Russell against a wall several times, maybe pushes him down some stairs, then grabs a knife and cuts him the f*ck open.
Are all children with the same partner? Yes.
If no, why not? N/A
If no, what is the custody arrangement? N/A
How does character relate to his/her child(ren)? I dunno, he loves all of them. He was a little scared one of them wasn't his for a while.

Where does character work? He'll probably end up some focused guy, working in a cubicle in some corporation. Maybe he meets his dad, who's the owner of some business, and is offered a job he can't refuse- for the sake of his family. (This is if I ever figure out what the f*ck happened with his dad. Divorce, or never married to mom in the first place. Either way, he hates his dad.)

Relationship with co-workers? IDK, BROSEF.
Like his/her job? Would prefer playing football..

Worst thing that could happen to him/her? ..anything that effects his family; be it financially, or health/life-threatening.
What single event would most throw character's life in complete turmoil? He would be crushed to lose Russell, but he would push forward to take care of his kids. It would be the loss of one of their children that killed him.
Character is most at ease when: He's chilling with his family/friends.
Most ill at ease when: Russell's past is brought up, or when his own sexual history and drug abuse is brought up. Pretty much the mention of Sven and stupid decisions he made that Zan blames on Russell.

Does anyone know? Yes.
If yes, did character tell them? Yes. Told this secret to Zanda, at least.
