Miranda York | Georgie Henley | 15 | Sophomore | Taken
Raised as the preacher’s daughter, Miranda York was always taught to believe in God. She was raised to believe in the goodness of others. Afraid of the influence of other children, her parents decided to homeschool her most of her life. When Miranda turned thirteen, she begged her parents to let her go to public school. She knew how harsh other teenagers could be from tv shows she had watched while her mother and father were out of the house. After another year of homeschooling, Miranda decided to ask her dad one more time. This time he agreed. Now in tenth grade, its her first year at a public school. Although she acts childish around others from the lack of social interaction, Miranda is sure that she is tough enough to handle high school. She knows kids will be mean, but she figures if she has faith in the lord and preaches his blessings to the other kids, they could learn to appreciate one another just as she does. But she will soon find out that not everyone has an equal love for the father.
Mr. Alan Tolkien | Colin O’Donoghue | 30 | Poetry and English Lit. | Open
Alan Tolkien may not sound familiar to most, but his great grandfather is known worldwide. Yes, the great grandson of the great John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. His great grandfather, also known as J.R.R Tolkien, wrote many books, but it most known for his famous book series, The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. While Alan loves the legacy his ancestor left behind, he sometimes feels the pressure weighing down on him. Just like his past family line, Alan loves to write. He’s composed many books and novels, but has never published any. His own self doubts make him too scared to turn in his work. This anxiety and low self-esteem don’t make a great mix with his hints of bipolar and depressive moods. The students who have him usually enjoy his class and his teachings, but they can tell when he’s having an off day. Most days he’s fine and charming, but when he’s moody and full of hate, his kids know to stay away and follow what he says. Nobody really knows what he would do if he got too upset, but no one really wants to find out.
Mrs. Selena Lirange | Shakira | 36 | Spanish Teacher | Taken
Being born in Spain, Mrs. Lirange is very fluent in Spanish. When she moved to America, she hardly spoke English and was forced to learn it to fit in. While learning the language of her peers, Selena couldn’t help to admit she enjoyed it. Most other kids hated learning a new language, but she loved it. She wasn’t the best in most American academic classes, but when it came to Spanish and English, she was the top of her class. Now, at age thirty six, Selena Lirange speaks five languages fluently; Spanish, English, French, Arabic, and Italian. She teaches the Spanish language and culture to students of all grades in Greensville High School. She also hosts an after school club for teenagers who thrive to learn other languages as she did when she was younger.
Ms. Alexandra MacLeod | Scarlett Johansson | 24 | Freshman Science | Open
Mrs. MacLeod is the teacher every teenage boy wishes to have. Beautiful face, goddess body, and intelligence.

Ms. MacLeod enjoys her job and is very set on doing it right. Grades and teaching children is what she has always wanted to do, so she is very strict when it comes to tests and homework. But she has also been known to get a bit frisky in the copy room.
Aaron Discap | Caspar Lee | 16 | Sophmore | Open
To put it plain and simple: Aaron Discap is Greensville High’s manwhore. Everyone knows him as a slut, and he embraces the title whole-heartedly. Even though he’s actually ever only slept with one person, his reputation says otherwise. With cheek it’scute dimples and golden blonde hair, it doesn’t make it hard to believe the rumors about him. The promiscuous rumors began in eighth grade when he transferred to Greensville from South Africa. perhaps they started because girls thought he was cute and boys envied him, but to Aaron it didn’t matter. it was his first week at a new school, and he already was popular. That was every kids dream, and he had achieved it within the first four days. And now it’s three years later and he’s managed to cling on to his popularity. There’s only a few people who he’s ever allowed to get close to him. The Baylor twins, the Olympic figure skating family, and Noah Russo. They’re the only ones who know that his reputation throughout the school is bogus, and they’ve promised to keep it a secret. It may seem odd that it’s the opposite of what most high schoolers want. Most would want to keep their current average reputation and avoid becoming infamous throughout the town, but to Aaron he wouldn’t want it any other way. his family doesn’t know about the reasoning behind his popularity, but frankly they don’t care. They see that their son is happy and that is all that matters, no matter the cost. But what would happen if his parents were to find out about his name in school? And also, what would have been if he’s was to start falling for a girl close to him? Would she turned him down for his reputation, if she’s already taken, or will she turn him down to just as friends? what would everyone in school think about him if the truth was to come out? all these thoughts fill errands mind every day, but he tries not to let it ruin his confidence because the last thing he would want is to lose his place at the top of the GHS hierarchy.
Danny Case | Matt Barnes | 17 | Senior | Open
You know that one kid who’s not particularly popular, but still holds his social standards miles above the rest of school? That’s Danny Case. Honorary president of the Emo Elitists, and actual president/editor of the literary magazine, you’ll never catch Danny without his black spiral notebook that you know holds poetry due to the deep and meaningful looks in his eye when he scribbles in it during lunch like it’s a lifeline. Trying to befriend Danny always leads to awkwardness, since the dark-haired boy is your textbook definition of “pretentious.” No one in Greensville is an intellectual and creative match for him and his deep as an ocean emotions. The truth is, Danny had been invisible for a lot of his life. So going into high school, he had created an image for himself as above the rest and latched onto it until it actually became him, using poetry as an outlet for his loneliness. Will he ever find someone he deems worthy?
Eileen Murdoch | Stefanie Scott | 15 | Sophomore | Open
Eileen, or Elly, moved to Greensville from California the summer before her freshman year, after her father’s job forced their family to uproot their lives and move across the country. Growing up in a Pacific beach house, Elly’s identity had always been influenced by the water. She was a swimmer, a surfer, a scuba diver. Elly would take any excuse to dive into the ocean. Too bad there’s no ocean in Greensville. Without the center of her childhood, Elly was forced to reinvent herself. She had the blonde hair, the blue eyes, the perfect body, the cute smile, and the laid-back West Coast charm. Everything the cliche popular cliques look for in recruits. So that was where lost little Elly Miller found herself her freshman year, and it seemed to work for her. A year later, she’s still on the cheerleading team, still one of the most popular girls in her grade. Still appearing to have it all. Lately, however, Elly’s been questioning all of it. If she’s honest, she doesn’t even like cheerleading, and she feels like her “friends” don’t really know or care about her. Will she ever figure out who she is underneath it all?

Cameron Woods | Ben Barnes | 18 | Senior | Open
Cameron has always been slightly off from the rest. A son of two artists, he grew up around creativity and inherited it himself. He tends to spend more time in his own world, than in Greensville with the rest of its inhabitants. To Cameron, the universe inside his head has always been the more real one. He’s been prescribed medication for what his doctor refers to as a “dissociative disorder,” but he doesn’t like to take it often. He’s not dangerous in the slightest, so his parents don’t push it, especially since holing up in his own world leads to him creating interesting and beautiful artwork, and writing intricately crafted stories of the things he imagines. He doesn’t see anything wrong with the way he thinks; he prefers to spend his time in that vast space all his own, creating the art he sees there.
Logan Fitzgerald | Chace Crawford | 17 | Junior | Open
Logan was Greensville’s Golden Boy. Never drank outside of the occasional social beer, never smoked, got good grades, was popular but still nice. He was a lacrosse player who loved playing piano in his spare time, and everyone knew he’d be prom king senior year even when they were freshmen. Unfortunately for most of Greensville High’s female population, he was off the market. November of his freshman year, he heard Morgan Gray singing as he walked by the music room and followed her around like a puppy for a week until she agreed to go out with him. The two were inseperable and completely adorable, always holding hands and beaming at each other in the way most high school sweethearts do. That is until Logan’s parents got divorced that February, and Logan was sent to boarding school in England so he would be “away from the situation.” Forced to leave his girlfriend behind, they lost touch about a month later when everything changed for Morgan. Two years later, he’s back in Greensville living with his mom. What will he think when he sees what’s become of the girl he adored so much just years ago?
