|Solace the Osprey (Pandion halieatus)
This bird of prey was brought up by Adam, and both of them have become inseparable. A wound crossing her left eye impossibilites her to live in the wild, because she isn't able to properly target her prey, and also gives her th elook of a grinning, "rascal" visage. Solace, even though she is a bird, seems to worry about Adam, and she keeps bringing him 'presents' of fish or anything she has actually managed to caught, if she doesn't think he is eating well enough. The bird is also a speed freak, liking nothing more than gripping the handlebars of Adams bike, her wings opened just ever so slightly, as he drives at speed. She also seems to appreciate fast, sporty cars, being quite knowledgeable (in a bird like way) of them.
Adam and Solace can be seen most early Sunday mornings at the edge of the western platforms, where Adam hunts Solace, sending her after the fish that cluster there, while he watches the sunrise. This is probably when he is at his most relaxed and approachable, but whether or not anyone will be out of bed by then is another matter!
English male, 16 years old
6 foot two inches, 10 stone, Short Light brown hair in a wavy style, blue /green eyes, speaks with a soft 'classical' English accent.
Thoughtful and removed (secretly shy, just putting on a 'Cool' exterior)
Not made any at Geocities yet!
Has started getting ticked off with 'snobish' members of his school.
Father: Martin Deveril (deceased) Mother : Samantha Deveril (deceased)
Uncle Tony : Like a father to him. Aunty Grace : like a mother to him.
Adam is the only son of Martin Deveril, one of the 'old school' of the English upper-class, as a result, most of his childhood was sheltered, with life being separated between boarding school, and the family estate. This all ended, when the private jet carrying his parents back from holiday and business in Brazil crashed, killing both instantly. Adam was hit hard, and had trouble adjusting, becoming distant from most people. After his parent's death, he was brought up by in-laws, but did not see much of them, spending most of his time at boarding school. It was here that he was introduced to VM, the local town having one of the first VM Arcades in Britain, using it as an escape, he spent most of his time there, slowly coming out of his shell, and making friends there. It was while on holiday in Scotland that he found an injured Osprey chick, feeling sorry for it, he took it in and started taking care of it. Since the bird's injuries made impossible for it to be freed (it would starve to death), he was allowed to keep it. The caretaker at the boarding school was a professional birds of prey man, and took Adam under his wing, teaching him how to properly train the bird. The Osprey (called Solace) did more to cheer him up than anything else, and he became very attached to it.
After he finished at the boarding school, his Uncle, who held his fathers property in trust for him, decided to bring him out to Geocities to further his education, and get him involved in the family business. His Uncle has started grooming him to take over his fathers position as CEO of PetroBraz, a pharmaceutical producing company in Brazil who have pioneered a lot of advanced medical equipment.
He has been in Geocities for only a short period of time, and is still getting to know the place. His Uncle has put him in the Rueben Leeching Academy, something he is not to happy about, although he gets on OK with the decent members of the school, the majority are beginning to get on his nerves.
He has only been to the VM Arcade here a few times, each time early in the morning, to avoid the worst of the people, using high-end stock chassis he has been trying out the place, finding he enjoys it. As yet, he has not used his beloved Hawker mech, perhaps saving it to teach some snobs a lesson. Another very precious item he has, is an Arena disk, given to him by the staff of the old English Arcade, it is of his favourite Arena, one he has also done a little work on, The Jules Verne Master Arena. He is at the moment a little shy of asking the staff at the Geocities arena to load it up for him, ore letting them have it.
Adam puts on a Cool Loner type of personality, using it to keep himself distant from the snobs at the Rueben Leeching Academy, also, it covers up his shyness. He as yet not opened up to anyone here enough to make friends.. but that can change. He also has two suprising skills, one is cooking, something he has found he is really good and, and enjoys doing, the other is Ikebana flower arranging, something his mother taught a little to him, and he expanded on, in her memory. Both these skills he keeps VERY secret, knowing what fun his enemies would have with this info.
