Name: Elijah (Eli) Carstairs
Appearance: He is quite pale and has odd bright silver coloured hair, like an untarnished shilling. His eyes are the same silver as his hair and he has a fine-boned angular face, with a slight curve of his eyes. He looks youthful, partially because of his slightness. He is also tall, very slender and rather handsome too.
Personality: Kind and quiet, despite his bad passed. He seems gentle, and seems to be a very unlikely gang member. From his physical appearance and personality, it would almost make more sense to see him in a quiet, well-to-do neighbourhood. However, is a good fighter when pressed and is extremely intelligent. He doesn't like to have people worry about him and is very secretive about his past.
History: He was raised in Detroit with his parents and his younger sister Janelle. His father was a policeman and his mother, a nurse at a local hospital. One night, one of the criminals whom his father had put into prison escaped and murdered his mother, father and sister, but not before torturing him to nearly insanity. Surprisingly, the killer left him alive and he was shipped off to a foster him in New York where he met Blake Penhallow. The two formed an unlikely bond and later escaped together.
Name: Blake Penhallow
Appearance: Deep blue eyes and black hair thats always falling into his eyes. He has elegant features - high cheekbones; long, thick lashes; full lips and an elegant throat. He is muscular and well built with broad shoulders. He is mentioned to be about 6 feet tall and has callused hands from years of being on the streets.
Personality: He comes across as rude and arrogant, always utilising his quick wit and sarcasm. He is aware of his good looks and uses it to get his way. He is free-spirited and carefree and would risk his life for the people he loves. He is also self-sacrificing and reads extensively. He has a perfect memory and can find a quote for almost any situation.
History: He was born in a small town in Indiana and has three brothers and a sister. His parents expected him to take over the farm as he was the eldest child but he refused. He ran away from home when he was 12 and hitched a ride to New York city. He was arrested for an attempted robbery and thrown into foster care. Bitter with resentment for life in general and being locked in the foster home, he was ready to commit suicide when Eli arrived. He took the distraught teen under his wing and protected him against the harsh realities of living on the streets. When the foster homes were finally shut down he was glad to leave, but remained very close friends with Eli.
