Full Name: Koren Bailey Seskin
Nicknames: Korey. Most people pronounce her name "Karen". She pretends it is okay.
Birthdate: January 21st
Financial Status: Slightly below average, enough to live a happy lifestyle but still budgeted.
Personality: Koren has a very addictive personality. Although she’s a follower, she still portrays herself as an okay girl, although she’s gone through tons of hard times. She hates herself a lot of the time, and what she’s become because this was not how she wanted to live her life, abusing alcohol whenever she can and relying on its unsteady excitement. As a kid, she always wanted to fit in, but now she doesn’t really care. She still hates being the leader of a pack because she knows that people will lay the blame on her if something fucks up.
Koren is introverted, but still likes to have fun, even if it takes a couple hours or a couple drinks to get there. She’s outgoing when drunk, much more the person she wants to be. That’s why she relies so much on it’s unique way to make her or break her.
Koren’s easy to trust, even though she has a hard time trusting other people. She doesn’t like the way that they stare or try to make her think she wrong for being or thinking that way. Koren likes to keep her feelings to herself, mostly, but every once in a while, she longs for someone who’ll reach out to her.
Likes: Liquor, especially gin, tequila and Kaluha, people who’ll drink with her, boys that won’t take advantage of her, rain, strawberry ice cream, cigerettes, and people who don’t judge her because of her alcohol abuse, music: Feist, The Dears, Hellogoodbye, Jack’s Mannequin, and Pink Floyd, movies: Mulan, Moulin Rouge, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Garden State.
Dislikes: Water, hangovers, ambulances, flashing lights, strobe lights, frat parties (she thinks their stupid because you have to pay for shitty kegs, she has friends in fraternities), mixing bad drinks, people who are shallow, black nail polish (she thinks it’s cliché), the smell of nail polish remover, and scotch.
Fears: Being abused, following the wrong crowd again, breaking down in front of people, crying, never finding anyone who actually loves her.
Hobbies: Reading, drinking, watching bad tv shows (South Park, Simpsons), living.
.x.Background & History.x.
Parents: Koren grew up with her stay at home mother, Brady Weinstein, who refuses to give up her maiden name, and her father, Daniel Seskin, who manages an elderly apartment complex on the other side of Silent Hill.
Siblings: Koren has an older brother named Brook who’s 24 and the most caring person she ever met. Koren also has a younger sister who’s 8 years old and named Nathalie.
Pets: They always grew up with a cat. Their current cat’s name is Sammy. She’s 13 years old, calico and has beautiful mango coloured eyes.
Hometown: Koren was born and grew up in Phoenix, Arizona.
History: Koren was and still is a natural follower, shy on the inside, outgoing on the out. She followed people all through grade school, such as her friend Raechel, who made her do the stupidest things, like making her strip on the field while they watched after school one day. That’s when they found out that yes, indeed, she had boobs, and yes, indeed, she was pretty. They left her soon after that. Koren had a few friends after that, like Max, who ditched her for a book series that he got completely obsessed with in the seventh grade.
When she went to high school, things got better for her and she made friends, got average grades and learned all about alcohol. She had her first drink at fourteen and got completely drunk six months later, passed out cold on a wall at a party. The friend she was with left her and she was kicked around and raped by a few guys.
Even though she gave it her all, she could never leave alcohol, no matter what it did to her life. Her grades slipped through her fingers and she could’ve cared less. She spent her nights watching SNL and drinking vodka in the basement when her parents went out and stole gin from the parents of kids she babysat. Koren knew how to get just-drunk in her sleep, and was an expert on getting the good stuff from her parent’s liquor cabinet.
People found out about her alcohol knowledge when she was 15 and she went from loner to popular within days. Koren hated being the leader anyway, and she went back to sulking, talking to people one at a time, because of her fear and insecurity of groups. She told people where to buy good liquor and went to as many parties as she could. She became used to carrying around condoms in purses, because she knew she would let people take advantage of her when she was drunk. It was so much easier than saying ‘no’.
Her family found out a couple months later that she was drinking nonstop when she went on a vacation with Raechel once they became friends again when they were both 15. They went to Palm Springs, California and Raechel left a party and lost consciousness at a different party after getting drunk. Koren tried to sneak her back in but woke her parents. Her mother and father decided that it was best for Koren to understand that they would let her drink, but only under the supervision of their house. Of course, Koren never followed that and was sent to a rehabilitation center for teens which made her furious. She knew she could take care of herself.
Koren quit the program and resumed her constant drinking. Her parents knew they couldn’t control her when Koren became the drunkest she ever got. After half a thermos of Vodka, three beers, and most of a bottle of Kahlua, she was taken in an ambulance to the hospital where she had her stomach pumped.
Her family said goodbye and sent her here, taken back of what a horror and disgrace she had become. They had always had a good relationship, but her drinking got in the way of everything within the past years. Her mother, always tried to take her side and defend her, even when her dad got made, but there wasn’t a lot she could do. What Koren did was always wrong, she knew it, her mother knew it, her father knew it, Brook knew it. Nathalie was always the one out of the picture, and Koren always tried to push her away.
Secrets && Problems: Koren’s deepest secret is that she truly thought she was a lesbian when she was 12. She never told anyone and doesn’t plan to. She also truly tries to forget about all the guys she’s ever met during parties because she decided that it was a different part of her that wanted sex when she was drunk. Koren herself only wanted it with a man who truly loved her and she still feels that she hasn’t met that guy yet.
Random Fact(s): She’s allergic to cranberries. She’s Jewish.
Nationality: Koren’s nationality is a mix of Dutch, Irish, English and Israeli.
Sexual Orientation: Straight.
Past Relationships: Koren once had a relationship with a boy at her school named Jack. They got along really well, but Koren knew he wanted to make his old girlfriend jealous. They went on a few dates and Jack took her to parties and she tried her hardest not to get too drunk with him. The farthest they got was making out before Jack broke up with her because he thought that they needed to see different people... and because his old girlfriend wanted him back. Koren was upset, but understood that she wasn’t good enough for him.
Appearance: Koren’s quite an average height, about 5’ 7”. She’s 127 pounds and has a medium but more skinny side build. She has small round rosy lips and perfect pearly whites from tons of orthodontic artistry. Her hair is thin and naturally really wave with small curls. It’s a dark brown chestnut colour with a natural rusty coloured shine to it. Her eyes are a pale brown that have a soft hazely green circle surrounding her pupil. They have deep purple bags that hang heavily over her thick eyelashes that curve toward the sky. Her skin is peachy but tanned, a dark apricot colour. She wears size 9 ½ shoes, and red plastic pear necklaces to hide her light sun burn on her chest. She has long slender fingers, usually modeling robin’s egg blue nail polish.

|Jevon was unexplainably relieved when the boy begged him to stay. He smiled slightly and nodded, bringing his foot back to the ground he stood on seconds ago. He wasn’t really sure what to say then; the indisputable smile lay unmoving on his lips. He wanted to comfort the boy, tell him everything was alright and let him know that he would be there for him, just like everyone else. But unfortunately, he couldn’t, because not being touched was one of the hardest things for Jevon to wrap his mind around. The human touch was so important to him; he was fairly lost without it. He loved hugs, giving hugs, being ‘petted’. It was relaxing, calming, comforting, all the things that were necessary to feeling okay.|
Jevon jerked at his sleeves as he slid his thumbs and pinky fingers into the holes he had made. Holes were his thing. Well, maybe not his thing unparticular but he did make them often and wear them often. The holes in his jacket were so that his father would have something else to yell at him for instead of the failing mark on his Geography paper. The sad part of that story was that his father could care less about the holes and so much on the paper that his head almost exploded. And when I say almost, I mean that his face was the brightest red Jevon had ever seen and that if there had been anything else to push him over the edge, that would have done it.
He allowed his smile to drop a little, loosening his mouth. His jaw hurt a slight bit from being in the same position for too long. Jevon looked through his head, zoning out to find the perfect words to answer the boy. He considered a “what is your name?” to start off conversation but, there was always the chance that could end a conversation too fast when there was so much more to be discovered. He then contemplated saying “what can I do to help?” but he assumed the boy had no idea what to do with the situation and was as clueless as Jevon was. He finally resulted in, “Would you like to get some tea?”
The only reason Jevon offered the new scenery was so that they could focus on something other than the words and movements they chose to say or do. It created a different subject to talk about; favorites. And that usually worked. Jevon slid his hands back into his pockets, since he pulled them out at the end of his sentence. It was automatic that he used his hands for talking, and it was weird since no one else in his family did.
Jevon couldn't help but wonder who was hurting him? Why were they hurting him? Why didn't anyone else know? What was he doing here in the middle of the chaotic mall? Was he okyay? He couldn’t understand but he could barely get his mind of the topic once he started. It would’ve been so rude to ask him then and Jevon was so incredibly pleased with himself when he found his brain trailing off about Drayne’s hair instead and the way it was so crazed and all over the place. It looked… nice? Well, at least it suited him very well and maybe that was the point. Jevon made a point of looking at his hair when he got home and seeing if it suited him just as well.
