Personality: Shy and reserved, Len isn't prone to making friends quickly as he finds it hard to relate to others. It's because of that he tends to keep everybody at a safe distance, even his parents. Especially his parents, given how they view him as less of a person and more as something to be shown off and admired and complimented and to live vicariously through. Perhaps that's one reason why he hates sports so much. He loves patterns and logic and timing though, and one thing he doesn't resent his parents for is getting him introduced to music. There's almost a zen-like serenity about him, if only because he feels things can't get any worse. Listening to music and hiding on the computer or playing video games are his escapes, though only the former is one he is at liberty to indulge in often.
Aside from Physical Education, he has little trouble getting good grades in his classes. Some subjects he despises though, generally leading him to scramble to catch up when projects and homework are due because he zoned out in class. Still, he somehow manages to find the time to make it up.
History: Len's parents, being both yuppie-ish and hippie-ish, felt it would be in Len's best interest to give him a name that would distinguish him from all the Ryans and Jennifers out there, the better for people to remember it when their son achieved greatness. That they expected him to good at everything lies the beginning of Len's problems with his parents, as it seems more like they want a trophy child than a son or daughter. It doesn't help that he has an older sister who rebelled and dropped off the radar. While his parents are affluent enough to not leave him wanting materialistically, there was a lack of other important needs.
While not uncoordinated, Len just didn't have the physique to excel at sports like his parents thought he should. That's not to say they didn't try to force the issue, with them signing him up for just about every one they could manage when they deemed him old enough (which wasn't really that old at all). When it became obvious that Len was much more gifted in scholastic pursuits, they brought the pressure on him there to succeed and be the best. Toss in requisite music lessons, and Len really didn't have much time to himself to be a kid.
With little opportunity to make lasting friends outside of school, Len had further issues with his own intelligence. Kids being cruel things they are, Len's smaller size and his standing out, both in name and hid successes in the classroom,made him the target of bullies. The situation didn't get any better for him when he was skipped up grades, as not only did it mean he had no one his age to relate to, it just switched in bigger bullies for the old ones.
