Description

Held back a grade, a foster child, goth, intersex/transgender, and a main target of bullying, Shay deals with a lot of depression and struggles in her daily life.

It is apparent that she most likely has a dissociative disorder as she can’t see the faces or details of people she has no attachment to or interest in. Shay’s true default is that of kindness or self-harm and not that of violence or hatred. She is incredibly sassy.

Description

From a very religious family, he was seen as the perfect son by his abusive and alcoholic father. He’s usually a gentle giant and teddy bear for the most. He murdered his father in self-defense for his little brother.

Despite his kindness, Clyde has been a willing participant in murder and with disposing of bodies. He fell madly in love with Shay, but he is content with just her presence, never wanting to make her uncomfortable or forced.

Description

Your typical gawky little nerd, but he was desperate to break from his position and was willing to take others down with him.

However, he’s still that boy that you’d either pay or threaten to do your homework. A photographer that uses his art for malicious intent, especially at the command of Molly, who he has a major crush on and almost hopes to climb the social ladder through her.

Description

Acts almost like a stereotypical redneck, but is also very techie and secretly into anime. Shay describes him as having “Resting pissy face."

He has nearly no filter and uses a lot of derogatory terms. Despite his foul mouth, he loves his big brother more than anything. He has a bad heroin addiction problem. Growth was stunted from physical abuse by his father as well as from his own substance abuse.

Description

Probably the most grounded and mature of the
family. Also very lighthearted and sweet, with
a very calm demeanor and low temper. He's the
most scholarly and has low interest in the actual
act of murder and is more interested in cannibalism
(which he laments but allows Easton to feed). He's
also currently a nurse and used to work at a
morgue. Despite being older, he still looks at Clyde
as an older brother.

Description

Grew up in a relatively traditional family aside
from the existence of his bastard half-brother.
He never had a close bond with either of his
parents as they were both bigots and he discovered
rather young that he was homosexual. He usually
is rather calm but is still a sadistic killer. He
has a very close bond to his brother, Davis, despite
them not being allowed to hang out as children.

hard worker. He can be rather short tempered
and quick to fight. He acts as a mentor to
Chuckles and pretty much helped him get into
being a serial killer and rapist.
