NAME: Kai Mallory
LIKES: Anything adventurous
DISLIKES: People who talk a lot, sleep, being told what to do
BACKGROUND: Kai’s father died outside the dome when he was twelve years old. Distraught by the events, Kai became secluded. He withdrew into himself and was no longer the lighthearted child he once was. He lost everything; his passions, his friends, and his emotions turned cold. He set aside everything to focus on one thing; becoming a Blue-Collar and seeing the outside world, just like his dad.

Likes: Adventure, making new friends, nature
Dislikes: Bitter foods and selfish people
Background: Sora’s father researched poison on the seventh floor of the U.C, and her mother owned a clothing store in Haven. Her fathers chosen absence plagued them both. So, Sora chose to plaster a smile across her face, and the longer she wore it, the more she felt carefree. But the sadness she chose to ignore lingered deep inside of her. She never could understand how her father wouldn’t do the right thing and come home…

Name: Pete Corrigan
Likes: Gardening, sweet tea, helping others
Dislikes: Hot drinks and laziness
BACKGROUND: The last words he heard his mother say were for him to be a good boy, and that’s what he did. He was a good boy. When his parents passed away, his grandfather moved in. With the help of his grandfather, Pete held himself together hoping one day he would make his mother proud.
Name: Clay O’Hara
Likes: His mothers cooking, girls
Dislikes: Hard work
Background: Clay O’Hara, being the youngest of four, often sought the attention of others. His older sister and two brothers made it through the S-grounds with ease. The only family within Haven to have all of their children do so. Clay felt a huge amount of pressure to succeed which he masked with an eccentric personality and cocky nature. This didn’t go down well with the girls. But Clay was reasonably happy. Becoming a Blue-Collar would be a breeze! He had his best friend to see him through the tough times ahead, after all.
Name: Anastasia (Tasia) Fall
Likes: Boys, junk food
Dislikes: ‘Pretty’ girls, lettuce
Background: With her mother and father serving within Haven, Tasia never felt alone. Her brattish attitude caused havoc wherever she went, yet her parents would spoil her still. Getting her own way was an understatement, until her uncle, Vin, visited from Rhi-vault and set her straight. His powerful presence suppressed her childish frame of mind and lit a flame of respect and admiration towards him and what it was to be a Blue-Collar.
