Rory Bucci | 20 years old | Abuse, Depression, Suicidal, | Face claim: Zac Efron | OPEN
Nobody would notice me even if I died; nobody would care.
Rory Bucci was your typical all American boy. Growing up, Rory excelled in each and every sport, but golf was his absolute favorite. At the age of ten, Rory had won over fifteen national championship titles, and was on the cover of quite a few sports magazines. Rory was known nation-wide, and he loved every moment of it. But as his high school years progressed, Rory’s father, a man who easily stood well over six foot, began to become abusive toward his only son. When Rory didn’t get a hole in one at practice, his father would beat him with a golf club. The abuse scared Rory, and he knew he could fight back if he really wanted to; instead, Rory sunk far into a hidden depression. For days on end, Rory would starve himself; he would sleep countless hours of the day, and soon became isolated from his best friends when his father pulled him out of school to train constantly for golf tornaments. By twenty, Rory was abused, depressed, and slowly slipping out of the glorified aura the public eye had created of him. Everyone was forgetting about Rory; the magazines and news channels stopped calling, and so did his friends. The only person who remembered Rory was his abusive father, who now tormented Rory verbally as well. Finally, there came a cool rainy night last month when Rory decided he would end it all. At the edge of his small hometown sat a bridge, and underneath the bridge, one hundred feet to the bottom, buzzed a loud and busy highway. Rory popped two dozen over the counter pain pills in his mouth, and made his way to the end of the bridge, looking over the edge at his soon to be fate. All he needed to do was jump. But before he could, a hand reached out to meet his. A bearded man dressed in tan robes pulled Rory from the bridge and told him it wasn’t his time yet; he still had accomplishments to be made, and places to go. The young man told Rory to find help, and pointed him back to his car, telling him to drive straight to the hospital to get treatment for the overdose of pills. Rory, without a second thought, headed for his car. When he turned around to thank the man, he was gone. At the hospital, Rory faded in and out of consciousness, and when he would wake from blackouts, the bearded man was at the edge of his bed, comforting him. The nurses said there had been no vistors all night, and encouraged Rory to invite some. When Rory finally realized he’d been helped by what he believed was an angel, he decided to take the advice further and get help. He quickly packed up his golf clubs and headed off to St. Britten’s.
At St. Britten’s, Rory is at complete peace. There is a small green outside where he allows himself to practice putting for fun, slowly coming to learn that his father isn’t there to beat him if he makes any mistakes. Rory hasn’t been visited by the bearded man anymore, and has been taking medication for his depression. Rory, before all his hell happened, was a charming, flirty, handsome young man with a lot to offer, and maybe, just maybe, St. Britten’s will bring out all of that good in him once again.
Darren Patrick St. Britten | 21 years old | Oldest sibling of the St. Britten family, only son |Face claim: Nick Roux | OPEN
“So, me and the band are skipping third hour, gonna go practice for the Bash, wanna come?”
Darren is the oldest of the St. Britten children. Though technically an adult, Darren is one of the most immature people you’ll meet. He seems very poised, but without his parents, he’s nothing. He relies on them for everything, his mother in particular. He has no interest in running the Institution, even though he is next in line to take over. He cares more about his appearance then anything. He sees the girls in Institution as a challenge to win over.
Rosalie Eversten | 25 years old | Co-Supervisor of the Girls Hall |Face claim: Billie Piper | OPEN
“Is there any other way to go, Daddy-o?”
Rosalie Eversten is the supervisor for the girl’s wing at St. Brittin’s. She’s willing to over look a lot of what the girls do, and is almost always going to turn a blind eye when she might find a boy in one of the girls rooms. A good portion of the time, she refers to the girls in the hall as ‘Her Girls’ and she’s very protective of them. She knows that a lot is wrong with St. Britten’s, and is determined to help the patients in anyway she can. She doesn’t handle any of the therapy, but she is in charge of making sure the girls get their medicine.
Roxanne Mitchell | 36 years old | Co-Head of Children’s/Teenager’s wing | Face claim: Jennifer Aniston | OPEN
“Damn it, would you just smile? I mean c’mon, it’s the second best thing you can do with your lips.”
Roxanne Mitchell doesn’t take life seriously. As an adult, she’s still unmarried, and childless, but extremely happy. She believes life is worth living, and happiness overcomes all. The St. Britten’s let Roxanne be Head of the Children’s/Teenager’s Wing, because they believe she is still one as well. Elders and older people might not take her seriously, but her patients love her aimlessly. She says what’s on her mind, and holds nothing back, sending hysterical laughs and playful insults down the hallways. Roxanne Mitchell is quite the character at St. Britten’s, but aside from everything, she’s cares about the kids she treats everyday, and just wants them to find happiness like she has once again.
Nora Montgomery | 30 years old | Head of Children’s wing |Face claim: Lily Rabe | OPEN
“Life is too short for so much sorrow.”
Nora Montgomery, above all else, adores children. After losing her only child in a horrific incident, in which it was returned to her in mutilated pieces, she sort of become obsessed with children. One of the few kind-hearted member’s of the staff, Nora runs the Children’s section for the institution. There are times, however, when dealing with the slightly older ones, that she loses her temper. Though being high up on the management scale, Nora doesn’t really know much about the inner working of the Institution. Her main priority is to try and make the children as happy as possible.
Caitlynn Collins | 14 years old | Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Sociopath | Face claim: Halston Sage | OPEN
“I am pretty.”
Caitlynn is the queen bee. No doubt about it, Caitlynn is on top, and no one can question it. Nobody matters but her and Snow, and she makes sure they know it. She’s smart, cunning, and very, very, pretty. Everything came natrually to Caitlynn, everything but her parents affection. So she forgot about them, she was perfect and she didn’t need anyone but Snow to make her happy. And make her happy Snow did. Everything about the bright, cheery girl was pleasing to Caitlynn. She followed without being asked, she often could make comments about people even Caitlynn found offensive, and somehow knew everything about everyone. Most importantly, she never asked Caitlynn to be anyone but herself. So Caitlynn refused to let anyone hurt Snow. The girl wasn’t smart, and Caitlynn knew that, but no one commented on it. And if anyone did, she cut them down in public. She didn’t stop there, though. If anybody upset Snow, they payed the price. Caitlynn was good at terrifying people, and even hurting them physically. When her parents found out, they sent her to St. Britten’s.
The first part of her stay was awful. She didn’t have her only friend, and it was killing her, but when she was reunited with Snow, everything changed. Now the two are thick as thieves again, and waste no time with others. They constantly remind others how much better they are than them. She is still very protective of Snow.
Snow Ivory | 14 years old | Dependent Personality Disorder | Face claim: Samantha Boscarino | OPEN
“It’s a good thing you’re pretty.”
Snow Ivory is probably the dumbest girl you will ever meet. Her IQ is so low it’s almost illegal, and it’s a wonder she can even really tell what’s going on most of the time. That’s why she has Caitlynn, her best friend, do most things for her, and tell her what to do. The typical mean girls, and best friends since birth, Caitlynn and Snow ran the school. No one questioned them, or talked bad to their faces. The helpful part about being dumb, however, is people assume you can’t understand them. So Snow heard everything, and not long after she figured out she could do that, she knew everything about everyone. She confided everything in Caitlynn. It wasn’t odd to find Snow staying over at Caitlynn’s for days on end, when her parents would leave town without telling Snow, or when she just couldn’t remember how to get home, and didn’t want to ask for help. Again. but when the Queen family sent Caitlynn to St. Britten’s, Snow was left confused and upset. She didn’t have a purpose if she wasn’t Caitlynn’s best friend, and things that used to be easy for her were suddenly much harder. Her normally sweet demeanor had changed, and she lashed out at anyone who tried to help her, only wanting Caitlynn’s help. She was sent to St. Britten’s when her parents finally couldn’t take it anymore.
Now at St. Britten’s, Snow and Caitlynn have been reunited, and Snow couldn’t be happier. The two take every chance to remind others how much better they are than everyone else. Snow can’t figure out why the staff wants her to stop relying on Caitlynn so much, as she doesn’t think it’s hurt her or Caitlynn, so why does it matter? She also knows a lot about different patients, because like at school, people talk in front of her thinking she wont remember.
Casey Laraman | 17 years old | Partially deaf, Musical prodigy, PTSD | Face claim: Ulrick Munther | OPEN
Music is supposed to bring people together, not tear them apart.
Son of famous music producer PJ Laraman, Casey was born and raised with music in his soul. At three, he could play the drums, guitar and piano on a college level, and quite frequently had the lead solos in his elementary school concerts because of his harmonic voice. Being exposed to music since birth, Casey’s ear drums suffered, and he was diagnosed with complete hearing loss in one of his ears by age ten. Still, he continued creating and performing music, letting the rhythm inside of him fill in where his hearing may of failed to. Celebrating a CD release last year, Casey joined his father at a party for Lux, the new superstar on their record label. Driving back to their Hampton mansion after the party, a previous member of the record label who was dropped only months before for horrible publicity and drug problems, pulled next to the Laraman’s car and fired over twenty rounds into the vehile. Casey escaped the drive by with gunshot wounds to his shoulder, neck, and side; his father wasn’t as lucky. So with his mother suffering with Ovarian cancer and his father gone, Casey had no other relatives to try and console him in his time of need, and he was quickly placed into the hands of St. Britten’s.
At St. Britten’s, Casey finds himself retreating further into his music. He was able to bring all his instruments along, and he could usually be found in the conference room where group sessions are held, playing for himself, or anyone else who happens to wander in. Not wanting to communicate, he uses his partial deafness as a way to keep to himself, but he knows he’ll have to open up sooner or later in order to recover. He wants to become a music artist more than ever to not only prove to his parents, but also himself, that miracles do come out of horrible times.
Kimberly Harmon | 9 years old | Perfectionist, OCD, Bullied | Face claim: Kimmy Kopke |OPEN
“Winning isn’t everything; ‘I wouldn’t agree with that’. “
Kimberly is the sweetest girl you could meet. Kind, soft-spoken, and almost never argumentative, she was every parents perfect child, and her parents never gave her a chance to forget it. Part of growing up is making mistakes though, and in her mind, and her parents opinion, Kimmy made a lot. She’d wake up at four each morning to clean her already perfect room and double check her homework. Already OCD, when she did make a minor mistake and figured it out herself, it greatly affected her. Her mistake being pointed out by someone else though, was an entirely different story. She would keep the feelings inside, beating herself up about it later. It didn’t help that being so quiet and inverted made it easy for her to be walked over and ignored. The only place she felt truly perfect was when she was dancing, and even that was tainted by the others in the class ignoring her. As she got older, things got worse. At nine years old, Kimmy was much smaller then her classmates, and had a accent and lisp that made it hard to understand her. Her classmates at school would make comments, asking if her family had enough money to feed her, because she was so thin, or if she would ever talk like a normal kid. The final straw came when Kimmy came home with bruises along her arms where older kids had grabbed and shoved her.
Now at St. Britten’s, Kimmy is still the same soft-spoken, kind little girl, but she’s a lot more afraid of those around her. She’s starting to learn it’s okay to have flaws, and that she can’t be perfect in everything. Though she’s set in her routines still, she has a much more healthy and normal one at the Institution.

Graham Montgomery | 16 years old | Social Anxiety, Depression | Face claim: Austin Mahone | OPEN
I’m better off by myself.
An only child of two rich and traveling parents, Graham Montgomery always got anything he wanted. He had the best of everything, except a good relationship with anyone. His father worked away in New York City, and his mother was a Marine, so Graham spent most of his time at his widowed grandmother’s cabin. He and his grandmother had a decent relationship, and with no other woman figure around, he considered her his real mother. She supported him with his off the wall dreams of becoming a music artist, and even sold her old sloppy jalopy car to buy him things for his recording studio. But after being in his grandmother’s care for over ten years, she suffered a fatal stroke, dying instantly and without warning. Graham, who hadn’t learned how to bond with anyone else, spiraled into a horrifying depression. Moving in with his father in NYC, Graham could of pursued his music career farther, but instead he fell further into being a depressed and unsocial fifteen year old. With money to spend, and no desire to help his own son, Mr. Montgomery placed Graham into the hands of St. Britten’s.
At St. Britten’s, Graham keeps to himself. Like any other teenage boy, he’s starting to think girls are more attractive, but he’d never gone to school, and doesn’t know how to interact with anyone his age besides quick pointless conversations. He’s quiet, for the most part, singing only in his room or occasionally in the back hallways of St. Britten’s. He wouldn’t admit it, but since a toddler, he’s had horrible nightmares; so sometimes the nurses find him sitting awake with the lights on in the awkward hours of the night. He’s broken, Graham Montgomery, and he’d trade all his money to just be okay again.
