PORTRAIT OF MICHAEL WENCHELL AS A YOUNG BOY

Full name:
Michael Elias Wenchell

Born in:
Rochester, Minnesota

GPA:
2.5

Mike is the creative type, in that he can't go twenty seconds without getting some weird idea in his head. If not for his hobbies of writing, drawing and fiddling around with a video camera, he probably would have been committed by now.

It's little eccentricites like this, however, that don't see you climb very high on the social ladder. In fact, he was the least popular boy in the whole school before Terry came along. At the same time, if it wasn't for Terry, there wouldn't be a girl in the whole school who would speak a word to him.

While supportive, his parents would prefer it if he channeled some of his creative energies into his schoolwork. It's not that he's a bad student—he tries to keep his marks above C level, it's just not always easy to do that when you're easily bored and prone to daydreaming in class. Sitting at a desk for one hour at a time and being expected to listen to someone talk about something he isn't really interested in drives him crazy, and yet he must or he gets shipped off to military school, like his folks had in mind for his two macho older brothers.

His least favorite class is P.E., where trying and failing to avoid the unprovoked wrath of his more physically-privileged classmates has given him an absolute hatred of organized competitive sport. He has a particularly low opinion of football and its red-meat-armchair-quarterback-brothers-always-hogging-the-TV-every-Saturday culture.
