[Name] Paris Elliot Vaughn
[Tourist or Sinner] Sinner
[Current residence] Paris shares an apartment with Spencer in Weeping Willow
[Clothing style] Paris has no particular 'style'. His wardrobe mostly consists of
black, white and grey t-shirts, usually with some sort of design, motif or logo on. He
wears jeans with these, often darker than the average denim blue. Keeping within the same
colours as his t-shirts, he has a lot of darkish hoodies, most of them a singular colour.
[Example of clothes] A plain coloured t-shirt with some sort of motif design on the
front, dark jeans and a dark grey hoodie.
[Hair description] Paris has dark brown hair. It's quite thick and messy and is
hard to shape into any particular 'style'. It's long enough to fall into his eyes but
short enough for it not to bother him. The back ends at the bottom of his neck. His hair
is rarely cut, styled, dyed or changed, he mostly just leaves it as it is.
[Eye description] His eyes are a similar colour to his hair, slightly darker and
tinged with grey. They're round and average in size. He has quite long, dark eyelashes.
[Skin tone] Pale to average.
[Weight] 127 lbs
[Personality] Paris likes to keep to himself mostly. He hates to discuss how he
feels and is very secretive. He finds it hard to connect with people because there is
little he feels he can talk to them about. He's not trusting at all and is on the brink of
being paranoid. He is independant, although he prefers other people to help him rather
than him help himself. He doesn't like anyone who can do anything better than him because
they make him feel inadequate. He is constantly comparing himself to other people and has
an incredibly low self-esteem because of it. He's quite nervous and jumpy and hates to be
put in the spotlight. He tends to overreact easily. Those whom he is most jealous of, or
feels most threatened by, he will go out of his way to hurt, or to some extreme, copy.
Evidently, Paris' sin is Envy. He doesn't particularly wish he could be someone
else, however. Rather, he wishes he could have certain characteristics of one person, the
appearance of another, the possessions of someone else and so on and so forth. He's never
truly happy because he always feels at least one person is better than him. Because of
this he feels the urge to get revenge on these people, merely for having something he
doesn't. He suffers from mild Bipolar Disorder and is therefore prone to manic episodes.
He has been known to attack and harm others, particularly when suffering from mild mania.
Paris has little motivation to go out and do anything himself. He sees other people's
success, and wants it, but isn't quite sure ho to go about getting it. Academically, he is
failing. He truants from school a lot and finds it difficult to concentrate on the work.
He doesn't like being limited, physically, and can be prone to panic if he is 'caged in'.
He likes to wander aimlessly, preferably alone. He has no ambitions because he's convinced
he will never amount to anything. He's fairly socially incapable, unsure of how to
befriend anyone or start any sort of relationship.
[Likes] Rain, Cold, Clouds, Pianos, Birds, Water, Winter, Autumn, Outside, Dark
[Dislikes] Bright colours, Flashing lights, Loud noises, Summer, Dogs, Small
[History] Paris Vaughn was born in Hinder Mist Grove's local hospital to
fifteen-year-old Leah Vaughn. Obviously underage, Paris' father had long since disappeared
after first discovering his girlfriend's pregnancy. Though she tried to provoke sympathy,
few people could feel sorry Leah. She had earned a reputation as a local whore, changing
boyfriend every week and flirting with every man she met. Her overprotective parents were
the only ones with any pity for her, constantly turning a blind eye to her many flaws and
For the first three years of his life, Paris lived with Leah and her parents, in one
house. More often than not it was his grandparents taking care of him, his mother
preferring to be out enjoying the remaining part of her youth. When she did take the time
to look after her son, she was hardly an adequate parent. Apart from not knowing how to
deal with children, she had a quick temper and was very impatient. She hit him and snapped
at him, doing much the same to her parents. She couldn't get a decent job so Paris had to
live with the cheapest food and clothes she could buy.
Upon starting school, Paris became moody and unfriendly, avoided by the other children. He
was told off many a time by teachers for pinching, grabbing, hitting and stealing. He was
bullied by the kids in his class and in turn he bullied them back. He refused to let
anyone befriend him and was 'happy' enough to remain solitary. Twice Leah was asked to
come into the school to talk about Paris' behavior and twice her parents showed up
By the time Paris was ten, she had got herself a new boyfriend, packed up her bags and
left her anti-social child as a burden on her parents. She left no means of contact
behind, though most were glad to see her go. For Paris, the real jealousy started there.
Seeing other people with parents, siblings, real families. He hated people for
having what he had never been given.
At the age of twelve, after two months in secondary school, Paris was diagnosed with
Bipolar Disorder. He was given medication that he was reluctant to take and never really
worked, yet his grandparents forced him to take it. Though it was only mild, he was
avoided more than ever at school as the news leaked out that he was a maniac. He began
truanting, particularly when he was in one of his manic episodes. He was caught throwing
stones and doing graffiti and his grandparents, who were becoming more and more
disappointed with him, were fined.
At the age of thirteen he ran away, stealing money from his grandparents and intending to
live on the streets for a while. The fifth day of living like this he was found by
Spencer, a seventeen year old with an apartment and a spare room. Both of them in similar
social crisis, it made sense that they should be acquaintences, even if Paris couldn't
trust him enough to count him as a friend. They moved in together, Paris constantly
jealous of Spencer's job and slightly fearful of him. Without anyone to support him, Paris
can't afford the medication he needs and has to be careful to avoid going to the hospital.
Since he still lives in the same town, his grandparents know where he is but want nothing
more to do with him.
