  • Cyrus - Male / Lead / African American, Caucasian / 10-14

    Hair Color: medium/long Blonde or Brown
    Eye color: Green or Blue

    Cyrus has never been one of the popular kids in school. His timid personal and obsession with historical and fictional stories creates a divide between his interests and those of his fellow peers. By indulging in the fictional worlds of his stories, he satisfies his creativity and curiosity, but he doesn’t prevent himself from being exposed to impactful material. Cyrus’ childish fault is not being able to acknowledge that the monsters in his stories are fake. This leads to fears of the dark and uneasiness when sleeping. Cyrus adores his brother and is not reluctant to defending him.
