Ulz's room is a nightmare, blood and clawmarks all over the walls, due to his frequent daymares and hallucinations driving him insane-literally.

Trisha is a full on nerd-which means prey for the bullies. Trisha's parents are lawyers, which means they're gone most of the time and she is left with a grouchy nanny that only watches soap operas. Whenever Trisha gets home, she locks herself in the basement, afraid the judgemental outside world, and lets her dark side come out. She writes and draws monsters-not like the boogy man, but real, bloodthirsty monsters-and then plays computer games like Left 2 Die, not bothering to come out of her cave because of the fear that consumes her life. When she finally DOES go out one day, the bullis come for her like sharks, but she ignores them, because there is something much more important that grabs her heart: the park.
Parker W. has loved writing ever since she was a toddler. She has written many stories, but, unfortunately, has never finished them. She mostly writes fantasy, horror, and thrillers, and is very dark and morbid. At her school she has chosen to be thought of a freak and a weirdo, but Parker is completely fine with that, as she has found friends that share a few of the same interests. Her hobbies are drawing, painting, cartooning, acting, filming, drumming, singing with her band, thinking, talking to herself, and writing. Parker currently lives in Texas with her parents, brother and sister, and two Chihuahua Terrier mixes, Buzz and Mojo.
