: Connor “Sol” Solinus.
Sol has shortish light brown hair with hints of gold. He has heterochromia by birth defect, making his eyes different colors: gray in the left and blue-green in the right. He’s tall, but lacks build. He has athletic calves and a trim body, but not much more muscle than that. He wears really whatever he has in his closet: sweaters, band-tees, dress pants, skinny jeans. Anything really.
He is socially awkward due to his heterochromia and finds it hard to talk directly to people. Sometimes he even texts people when they’re right next to him just so he won’t have to talk. He tries to avoid eye contact at all costs, because he’s ashamed of his heterochromia.
Shortly after being born, Sol’s birth parents killed themselves and as a result he was put into the foster care system. He was adopted quickly because of his birth defect, but he was only used as a trophy. His mother slowly dug herself into depression, and his father beat out his aggression on child-Sol. After months and months of physical abuse from the man that called him his father, Sol heard about the house from a firsthand source (Ben) and planned to escape. He was 13 at the time, and one day his dad got beyond the point where he wanted to hurt his show item – he wanted to kill him. Sol knew it was coming so he locked his room door and hid in there, packing his backpack with a change of clothes and the money that he took from the family safe. He escaped through the window to his bedroom and got away before his dad got in.
Why They Ran:
To escape pain and eventual death. He was tired of living like he did.
He likes to read and goes to the library a lot. He’s never really been interested in anyone romantically, but, you know. He’s been living in the house since he was 13.
Benjamin “Ben” Stali.
Despite his young looks, Ben is the oldest person living in the house. He is also the only member that is not a teenager. He has dyed red hair, green eyes, and a small build – he’s 5’4” and weighs probably around 100 lbs.
Ben is a very serious person, and he knows that all these kids are here for a reason. He accepts them with open arms and tries to be a father to all of them, but he ends up more like an older brother. He’s somewhat closed off, but he puts on fake smiles for the other members of the group.
He grew up in a financially stable (not emotionally) household with married parents and two siblings. One day his dad snapped and started freaking out over everything. He ran away, taking as much money as he could from the family. He leased out a house that was close to his family’s summer cottage and started living there. When he was 16, people started coming, Sol being the first.
Why They Ran:
To get away from it all. He didn’t want to live like that anymore.
Sometimes he puts on an act for the other kids to show he’s happy, but he’s really just depressed inside and just wants to cry some of the time. He's also gay.
