Garret has honey blonde hair that sometimes likes to curl up at the ends. He used to take time to straighten it out, but since it's summer he honestly doesn't care. His eyes are chocolate brown and helps the cute-n-innocent look he likes to portray more believing. He's not super tall, but higher than average, and comes to about 5'9" or 5'10". He figures he'll hit another growth spurt, and sometimes he worries about his height, but he brings himself back down. He's slender, but not extremely skinny or anything. He's quite lithe, but he still looks like he eats.
Before ending the last school year, Garret was a somewhat depressed kid. He liked to sit inside and pretty much dwell on how life was boring and unfair. He told himself that during the summer, he was going to be a happier person and so far it's worked. He's easier to be around and has a knack for the social skill of charisma. He feels that it's easier to make friends then keep them, though, and he fears that leaving his hometown is going to impact his ability to get to know people. He thinks he'll make more acquaintances than friends. With all of this in mind, he's a happy-go-lucky type of person; he just has to be placed in the right environment to make befriend people.
Garret grew up the younger sibling of two, his older brother Jeremy being two years older than him. When Garret was nine, his parents announced they were getting divorced. He lived with his mom most of the time, and his dad on every other weekend. After he turned eleven, his mother got remarried to a man named Paul and the four of them - Mom, Garret, Jeremy, and Paul - all moved in together. His dad later got remarried and moved half-way across the state because his new wife had a daughter. Garret's Mom and Paul later had a child when Garret was twelve, and their moving now so that Ivy will start school in a better district than the public one around their house. (Garret and Jeremy went to a private school before, but it was all-boys so Ivy couldn't attend. Garret did interact with girls at places such as camp every summer and sporting events with the all-girls school nearby.) Since Jeremy graduated last year, and Garret felt like it would be cool to go to a public high school, the family moved as Jeremy went off to college.
Garret likes video games, alternative music, and aggravating (and kissing-up to) adults.
