This post is to help keep track of the past classmates from Willow Creek. You can refer to this post to see who your character may have known in school and what kind of person they were back in high school. It goes without saying but their fellow classmates would've been those in the same graduation class and its possible they could know people with a 3 year and less graduation class difference. Example: When the class of 2008 graduated then the class of 2011 were freshmen.
You need to supply me with the information about who your character was during their time in high school. This thread can be updated with more info as we go along, so don't be afraid to message me and know any additons you'd like to make.
Darren was a pretty social guy in high school. Like his brother before him, he had no issues socializing with people and made friends very easily. He was well known for spending time with his big brother DJ or checking on their baby sister Brielle. He was known as the ‘family guy’ and wore that badge with pride. When DJ graduated, he followed his brother’s footsteps as closely as possible. Senior year, he happily enlisted into the marines and was so proud of himself for it.
If you went to school at all with Holly, there is a very good chance that you know her on some level. Holly has always been very lively and outgoing and probably got involved in far too many extracurricular activities. She has always been very much an environmentalist and activist and was heavily involved in when it came to organizing school events such as dances, pep rallies, field trips, fund raisers, etc. Holly has always worked hard to be a friendly face for others and was probably one of the first people a new student would have encountered. Holly spent most of her time in high school glued to her boyfriend, Daxton, until they broke up after Junior Prom. Her vivaciousness diminished quite a bit after that and she fell into more of a private, quiet shell of her former self for a while... until the two of them rekindled and rebuilt their friendship during Senior year. She was definitely in charge of planning events such as Senior Prom and the Senior class trip.
Rosalie was the one that was always getting called down for talking too much in class. She was always so kind to everyone and she was super smart. Book smart. Common sense? Not so much. The girl was known to be the bubbly one in the room with how outgoing she was. Being a member of a founding family, she was well known in school already, but she was always trying to make friends all over the school. Rosalie was constantly writing stories whenever she had time, which isn’t a surprise because she was president of the creative writing club for a couple of years and she had joined the book club with her best friend as well.
Andy was definitely a very smart kid in school, and was on the Honor Roll. He's from one of the wealthiest families in Willow Creek, the Sullivan's owning the community college in Crawrd City. He was very friendly in school and had a lot of friends, but his best friend was fellow classmate and next door neighbor Maxwell Grant. Andy ended up being one of the school's photographers and he was very involved with the Yearbook and such.
Angie was the typical ‘bookworm’ girl in high school. She was often reading all sorts of things or working on schoolwork. But alongside that, she was very social. She made friends fairly easily and could socialize fairly easily. She had befriended Andy and Holly relatively easily and those friendships seemed to stick. She often spent her time helping others with schoolwork because she was very good at it and often completed things ahead of time. Being the nice person she was, she happily helped others. And her love of the schoolwork made her decide in her senior year to become an English teacher.
Daxton was a pretty friendly guy in high school, and he spent all of it confused and closeted about his sexuality. He was always seen with Holly McKinley, who is was his girlfriend at the time. The two broke up after the Junior Prom and no one really knew the full story. During their senior year they managed to patch things up and returned to being best friends.
Elaina was always known for being the girl that was open to help and tutor everyone. She was relatively known in high school and she always had good grades. She didn’t have a set crowd that she would hang out with, she had a few friends all over the place. Most of her time though was spent in a couple of activities; creative writing club (being president for only a year because the responsibility sucked at the time ), book club, and boxing. She was always outgoing, outspoken, and nice to just about everyone. A lot of her time was either spent with her friends, mainly Rosalie Lawson whom she took under her wing once she met her in one of her clubs, working, or boxing.
Maxwell is from one of the wealthy and founding families within Willow Creek, his father becoming the mayor for a time. It was because of this that Maxwell was forced to many town and school events even though he was mostly a loner. Maxwell had acquaintaces and "friends" but he never really opened up to anyone. A huge reason for that is because he's cursed and has struggled with the demon side of himself all his life. His best friend was Andy Sullivan, who was also his neighbor and most people knew they were close which was surpsiing since Maxwell didn't get close to really anyone.
Zach was always a nerd, something he never really made an effort to hide from his classmates. As such, it wasn't too unusual to see him being bullied for it. He was a chill guy who remained pretty friendly to everyone around him, never seeming to let the teasing or insults get to him. He did well in school and often was seen as a favorite of his teachers, if only for the fact he did his work and didn't try to disrupt the class. One thing he'd likely have been known for was how often he spoke of someday starting a Twitch channel of his own on top of his constant video game chatter. As well, pretty much everyone knew he'd be continuing the Monroe family business of caring for a house that had been in town for generations by this point.
Aria is known for being a nice person who cared for the students around her, often helping them with things, sometimes being too gullible that she'd get hurt emotionally. Aria was a straight-A student who'd normally be found in the chemistry lab, or tutoring younger students in Biology. She would often greet the new students, helping them adjust to high school life.
Kennedy came to Willow Creek sometime in the middle of her Freshman Year. For the most part, she was pretty closed off with the exception of a couple of people... Jade McKinley, whom she befriended quite early on and became quite close to... and Revan Grey, whom she began dating shortly after first arriving. Most of the people she socialized with were people she knew from them, at least up until she and Revan broke up after her graduation. With Jade and Revan both having moved on, Kennedy had become quite a bit more social during her Senior Year and was probably well known for being a notorious flirt.
Pluto was always a quiet kid in school who did fairly well in class. Often bullied by others because of his weird name, he also spoke with a stutter if you could get him to break his elective muteness. Coming from a family tragedy that had more school yard rumors than truth known about it, he tried to keep a low profile in school as he didn't like to talk about being in therapy or really even share any kind of personal information. So he became known as the weird goth emo kid from Canada who like batman comics and rock bands.
DJ was one of the popular kids in school, he had no shortage of friends or people who wanted to be his friend. He didn't get the best grades, but he did okay enough. He was in advanced art classes, but was extremely private about his art. DJ was seen all the time with his best friends Joel McKinley and Revan Grey. It's possible DJ got a bit of a reputation of being a player, because he probably had a few girlfriends throughout high school.
In school, Eli was one of those kids who pretty much kept to himself He was friendly when approached but never went out of his way to really socialize unless it was chatting or gaming with friends online. He was probably well known just for being a part of one of Willow Creek's founding families as well as being a member of various academic clubs throughout high school and the President of his class.
Jade was one of those people in high school that was hard to put into a category. She was somewhat popular, but she wasn't actively one of the "in" crowd or social elite. Neither was she an outcast or a true loner, though she had no problem keeping to herself if she felt like it. If she had wanted it she could have been at the top of the social ladder, having all the hallmarks for it. Being born into one of the founding families, the McKinley's are well-known and influential in town. Jade was an outstanding athlete and participated in multiple sports at school. Being what most people considered an attractive or dare say, beautiful girl, she also garnered plenty of attention on the dating front. Even given all that it was never important to her to be popular, and she did her own thing. On the subject of dates, she did date and would have attended all the events like homecoming and proms with an appropriate date, including a serious boyfriend or two throughout high school. Her best friend Kennedy Stark was a year behind her. She was also close with her cousins, Joel and Holly McKinley as well as DJ Carter.
Revan was never considered particularly popular, but ended up being in the limelight a lot simply due to her proximity to DJ and being best friends with both him and Joel McKinley. She was known for being the creative sort who seemed to pick up a new artistic endeavor every week, and tended to keep to herself while trying - but failing - to not be tied in with typical high school drama. She came out as gay in her Sophomore year, with it rapidly spreading around the school, and ended up dating Kennedy Stark thru to graduation from there.
Belle was the typical ‘nice girl’ in high school. She was always chipper and greeting everyone with a smile and had no issues making conversation with everyone. She loved being social and was always there for social events. She often spent time with her best friend, Corbin MacBranain and was never seen without him by her side. During the junior and senior proms, she used her family’s floral shop to her advantage and helped her class get the floral arrangements set up. She seemed to connect with and understand people well, which comes from being a witch with empathic abilities. She was, and probably always will be, ‘the nice girl’.
A total grouch, he kept to himself in school. Belle Leblanc was his only friend, and aside from her, he never made any effort to make more friends. As such, while many would know of him by reputation more or less for his surly and somewhat aggressive attitude towards others, he never bothered to learn the names of others in his grade (at least not willingly). Belle was always the more friendly and talkative of the two.
Sydnee was one of those loner types who had a reputation of being a bully without the rumours being true. She had a few friends during high school that she mostly hung out with instead of trying to make new friends. Girls in that time were bitches, she was a bigger bitch back to them. She was, and still is, more of a tom boy. She found it easier to be friends with males than females. She was a lesbian back then but she kept it hidden since it was frowned upon. The school really only had cheerleading for teen girls in those days so she did soccer after school as extra curicular activities. Sydnee did try to stay lowkey but occasionally someone tried to appear more self important, and she took them on without a second thought. Gradewise she was average, not really applying herself until the final year wanting to go to the police academy.
