Stars & Boulevards Roleplay

Leslie Baxter Ian || 26 || App Developer and Youth Clinic Volunteer || Straight


Leslie Baxter Ian is the type of guy who ends up lighting up, on Hollywood Boulevard, at three in the morning. Leslie Baxter Ian is the type of guy who downs vodka shot after vodka shot, just so he can feel something tangible. Leslie Baxter Ian is also the type of guy to fail out of school, not because he’s not good enough for it. No, simply because he doesn’t value the system of American Education. Though he tends to cause destruction, Leslie Baxter Ian is the type of guy, who is always looking out for others, always helping others out over working for himself. 

Leslie grew up in Portland, Oregon. Portland is known the rest of the world, as home of the hipsters, and it fit Leslie quite well. He enjoyed the 90’s scene, as a kid. His family life, however, wasn’t ideal. He had two siblings, where he was the middle child. His older brother, Cameron, is two years older, and everyone’s favorite. He was a three season athlete, and terribly outgoing. He’s always very rude to Leslie, which has been emblematic of their relationship throughout their whole lives. He was always jealous of the fact that Leslie was technically a genius. He grew up to become a famous sports commentator on ESPN, and they rarely speak. His younger sister, Lila, is nineteen, and she is a brat. He doesn’t know too much about her, because when she was around, always complaining, he usually left the area. That was just the tip of the iceberg. Then there were his parents. Upperclass bitchy family, not the environment Leslie ever wanted to be in. Just because Cameron was perfect, they never gave two shits about their younger son. He was always ignored, always mistreated. 

So even though he was acing his classes, the genius he was, he ran away, at the age of fifteen, dropping school, and his broken family. He slept in bus stops, on the streets, anywhere. He developed a drug and alcohol problem, smoking every chance he got. He would pickpocket who he could and couch surf, when people would let him. Somehow, he found ways to travel, and at the age of twenty, ended up in Los Angeles. A rich older man, a proprietor of a Youth Clinic, found him sleeping in a subway car. He picked him up, and brought him to Next Steps, a program for Homeless youth in the Southern California area. He resisted, but ended up going, to therapy, finding housing, and showing his academic skills. They found he was amazing with technology, so they would expose him to new software, and have him tinker around the clinic.

One day in his free time, he started to develop an app, using one of the computers on site. He developed an easy code, allowing you to send messages to different users, for free, and having a domino effect. He decided to call it chain mail. The idea was to send receive a piece of general advice from a stranger, and send off one, yourself, to someone completely new. Just a way to motivate yourself in times of trouble. It was never meant to be successful - it was just fun for him. But it somehow struck it big. It was the new rage, on mobiles, because people liked quick stimulation. His problems with drugs were on the minimum, and he mostly stuck to drinks and cigarettes. He made a lot of money, and was able to afford housing.

Now, he lives in a small apartment, by himself. He helps developing apps by day, and usually parties by nights, now having the money to spend. On weekends, he goes back, and volunteers at the clinic. It saved his life, and he feels he owes it all to them. He doesn’t know how he ended up the way he did, but he knows that he has to try to be the best person he can be. Mind the smoking, of course. He doesn’t really want to quit that. Leslie is sarcastic as hell. His wit is biting, as his mind is always churning. But if you get close to him, he will be fiercely loyal. As with most geniuses, he is broken, damaged as ever. But he’s working on improving all of that. So long as you call him Les. He hates the name Leslie.

Nala Krishnan || 27 || Personal Secretary To The Princess of Denmark, Countess of Monpezat || **Sexuality Up To Player**


There were serious inequalities in India, especially in it’s heart of Delhi where Nala was born. Her mother had been a housekeeper, young, beautiful, and the daughter in a family with too many mouths to feed. She’d been sent off to earn the family some money and in that household she was subjected to so much mistreatment and injustice that Nala still doesn’t know the whole reality of her mother’s upbringing. There are a few things she is sure about, her father was another person at the home her mother worked in and he had enough money to send Nala away as soon as she was born. They young woman could’ve ended up anywhere in India but instead she was sent to live with a very distant relative who was starting up a business in Denmark. Communications were a vital and booming business in India and this relative happened to have an infertile wife. They took Nala and raised her as if she were their own child, far away from the cultures, customs, and sexism of the town she’d left behind. Despite her mothers mistreatment and the inferiority of Nala’s birth or rank no one ever questioned the circumstances with which she ended up in Denmark.

Had she been raised in Delhi an education would’ve probably ended up out of the question or at least something very minimal, home would have been a slum, and dreams of the future would’ve revolved around her next meal. Furthermore, when it came to a relationship or seeing the world, Nala would have most likely been placed into an arranged marriage, like many of her aunts had been, and her life would’ve revolved around whatever town her husband’s home was in. However, this wouldn’t be her life. She would go to public school, live in a home where religion was something you partook in personally- not in a temple or a church, and her future was set to be whatever she wanted it to be. There were fine lines that she’d been told not to cross with this life she’d been given. First, she couldn’t go back to India. Her mother would come and visit once every couple of years but Nala couldn’t go back to India. The second was that in her letters to her mother, she wasn’t to discuss her lifestyle. The third was that there could be no mention of her future.

These rules were all laid out to protect her. Their biggest fear was, after all, losing their adopted daughter. She didn’t understand them for quiet some time, being so segregated from the culture and history of India, but she would eventually learn the ‘why’ to it all.  Nala could not return to her hometown because it wasn’t safe for women and she would be an outcast. Her western upbringing would make her stick out and could even lead to assaults in the streets. Then, if she went back or discussed her hopes and dreams for her future, they worried about her mother insisting that she have an immediate arranged marriage to set her straight. As an international businessman, her father saw every side of both these cultures and, with his wife, they showed Nala only what they deemed to be the best facets of both worlds. It could have turned out terribly, confusing her and causing dysphoria, but she made it out all right.

With fairly standard grades, Nala was accepted into her first choice university where she pursued a degree in business management with the intent of graduating and helping her father with the family business. Naturally, her parents were elated, showering her with gifts, but upon her graduation the tables turned a bit. With her father torn at keeping the business and guiding Nala into it, selling and moving on to new endeavors, or retiring and letting others take the reigns, Nala seemed to be out of a place to go. She worked at his office as a secretary to save money and pass the time but remained unsure about what she would do in the long-term. It would be her adoptive mother, who worried more about Nala than anyone else, that would manage to hear about a position working for one of the Danish royals. With Crown Prince Frederik and his wife, Crown Princess Mary, having four children, it was assumed that it would be for them; however, this would not be the case.

Upon several interviews, drug testing, and intense background checks Nala was sent to Los Angeles, California. After years of schooling, followed by years of working in an office, Nala had excellent planning and organizational skills. Growing up in Denmark meant she was fluent in Danish and English, but her father’s business being communications meant she was fluent if not well versed in many other languages including the languages of the Middle East, Spanish, and Italian. The trip to meet her potential employer, knowing that she was one of less than ten in well over a thousand applicants, felt like a roller coaster. The Princess was the third in line to the throne; Aurélie or “The Lost Princess” as the media had so dubbed her. Nala spent the flight trying to unravel her nerves by studying up on the woman. So, when she arrived she knew the basics including the facts that, unlike her siblings, she was raised all over Europe and, like herself, was a polyglot.

The trip turned out to be worthwhile as she got the job. The Princess, who preferred to be called Kailani, got along with Nala like long lost friends that bonded over their independent upbringings in foreign countries. The job she was given was as the Princess’ personal secretary and, needless to say, it was idyllic. She was given a room in the Danish Royal Estate, a large salary, and as long as her scheduling and itineraries were set up she was free to enjoy and explore Los Angeles to her heart’s content. It was Kailani who told her about this social network, not wanting Nala to feel alone in her new home. Nala loves her job and is ready to learn to love her new home. The job does give her the opportunity to travel back to Denmark with Kailani frequently and she’s positive that it will go well that she can do this job in the long-term. With that, she’s eager to explore other passions and friendships in her personal life.

Elizabeth Asper || 31 || Special Education K-5 Teacher At Olympic Heights Private School || **Sexuality Up To Player**


Elizabeth was always the odd one out in school. What had once been deemed cute baby fat was now the basis of schoolyard teasing. Having teenaged parents that could hardly handle their own needs, let alone those of a child, her inability to focus, follow directions, or understand sarcasm were all chalked up to bad parenting- as was the issue of her weight. They tried to encourage her to brush off the jokes, insisting that it was other people being jealous or deflecting their own problems, and never bothering to take her to a doctor for a proper check up. They hadn’t meant any harm, they were just trying to teach her to be tough and to love herself, and she would. Despite her problems in school she always persevered and maintained a cheery disposition, at least in public, and by the time she was in high school she fancied herself something of a master at faking it until she made herself into a good mood. Luckily, in the part of Montgomery, Alabama where she grew up, people were a community and other than childish teasing in school she was never bullied at home or in her neighborhood.

With the No Child Left Behind program she was pushed into high school while still being very incapable of comprehending the most basic principles of every type of class. Formulas in math might as well have been in another language and grammar, well, it wasn’t like most people in the south spoke “proper” English in the first place. When she had her first meeting with a guidance councilor to discuss her career aspirations it was made very clear that being left behind was exactly what had happened to Elizabeth. It didn’t take long at all for doctors to diagnose her with mild Aspergers Syndrome. With a thumb on the problem her guidance councilor took steps to make sure that she received the attention she needed to make and achieve a career goal. Now, Elizabeth saw that as anyone could learn if they were given the right attention and time to learn an appropriate method for them to learn. With that realization she decided that she wanted to be the person that helped struggling students succeed and figure out what their learning method was.

After graduation she applied to work in the school cafeteria. Her parents had encouraged her to work there to remain in the educational environment and keep her busy while she attended a local community college. Her major was in Education K-8 and much to everyone’s surprise she never had any setbacks or bad grades, graduating in four years and receiving the certifications she needed. One thing her parents did not anticipate was that mid-way through Elizabeth’s time in the school’s kitchen she was moved to the elementary school as an aid with the special needs children. Her experience there not only gave her the credentials she needed once she graduated but it was the perfect environment for her. The singing and dancing broke down her walls and after a while she truly began to really learn understand methods of learning outside of her own and mature as an independent adult. It wasn’t until recently, with a significant amount of money saved up that she decided to live out her independence completely and applied to schools all over the country.

Upon being hired at Olympic Heights Private School, which has pre-k to twelfth grade, her parents- who remained together but never had more children, were skeptical that she could handle a life alone and so far from them. Elizabeth was determined to make it on her own and has, more than once, talked them out of looking into Los Angeles real estate. Now she spends her extra time studying to teach autistic and other children with an array of learning disabilities. Though she is just one of many teachers and she solely focuses on autistic students from kindergarten to fifth grade, she is one of the school’s favorite teachers. Though she’s kindhearted she has also learned to have thicker skin and she won’t use Aspergers as a crutch for why she speaks her mind. Elizabeth won’t stand for bullying of any sort. Joining this Los Angeles social network she hopes to find like-minded people. She’s never dated and the idea of doing so scared her a bit but it’s definitely not off the table for her.

Dallas Cantor || 30 || First Sergeant In The U.S. Army & Occasional Office Assistant || **Sexuality Up To Player**


Dallas was raised to do what his parents said. It always ‘yes ma’am’ and ‘no sir’ around their house. Well, not just around his house but it was a Texas thing in general, those southern manners. So, when his older brother, Houston, signed up for the army he knew that was what he was going to do as well- or at least that was the plan. It wasn’t so much that he followed in his brother’s footsteps but rather that he was waiting for his brother’s cue as to whether the family legacy would continue. Having always had his older brother to look up to and his little brother getting the attention he got navigated his youth fairly painlessly.

Having come from a military family his entire life he had been told to follow orders. The entire Cantor family had either joined the army, air force, or navy- don’t get them started on the marines. He’d grown up all over the world, learned other languages from his adventures of base, and gained a love of food and culture. By the time he was in high school the Cantor family had settled in Fort Worth, Texas with the rest of the Cantor generations and the boys got their first taste of living stateside. Their motto had always been: “We served our country. Now its your turn to do the same.” His father had preached it to him and his older brother and for the longest time, he bought it. There wasn’t a very strong drive for him to look into other options because that was all he knew. The only question was which branch he wanted to join. The ROTC helped him select the Army but it also wasn’t part of his plan to almost immediately be sent to war.

When he came back from the Army, the sole survivor of his unit, people told him he was the lucky one. Dallas never really felt that way and a now, a month after his return to the states, he still wakes up every night in a cold sweat from the nightmares. Dallas still looks up to his older brother Houston who broke the status quo of their family and he wishes he would have done the same now. Sure, he made lifelong friends in the Army, but everyone he’d considered a brother had died on the third or fourth or even fifth tour. They made it back until they didn’t anymore and now every time he closes his eyes, he relieves their deaths… over and over again.

No one in the Cantor family is aware that Dallas is back in the states other than his brother Houston, whom he lives with. They know his unit was attacked and that he made it but to the best of their knowledge their boy is still out fighting the war. In a sense he still is. With his brother’s encouragement he has joined this social network and pokes in between work and his psych evaluations. There’s no telling if he’ll be cleared but his date to re-enlist is fast approaching and Dallas isn’t sure if he wants to or if he can handle another tour. So, for now he’s just looking to enjoy what life has to offer, what Los Angeles has to offer, and to help out his brother around Rec Recording Studios.

Thora Shaw || 26 || Nurse In UCLA Hospital’s Psychiatric Department || **Sexuality Up To Player**


Thora constantly lived in her older sister’s shadow and this led to Thora’s personality becoming very distinct earlier than most children. Bonnie was constantly considered the pretty and outgoing out of the pair of Shaw children. Their were plenty of other kids in Edinburgh, but no girls in her neighborhood that were her age that shared the same interest. For the most part this led to the girl following Bonnie around, especially after her sister had made some interesting new friends. Ewan and Alan, much like Bonnie, pushed her aside because she was younger and a bit eccentric and attention hungry. Thora’s idea of a good time was dressing up in fancy clothes and pretending you were a princess in the woods or having tea parties at the tops of trees. Sure, it was odd and more often than not she would play until she got hurt only to go home and milk the injury, but her creative mind and dauntless character led her toward her career in helping people.

School was boring for Thora, even after college and her nursing critical, but not because she was always daydreaming. Thora could pick up concepts and predict story’s plots, retain historical data, and perfectly explain physics theories and mathematical formulas- except she just wouldn’t. After years of trying to get some attention, Thora decided to simply keep the faith that one day someone would appreciate her and stop comparing her to Bonnie. The first person to really acknowledge her as her own special self was Ewan, who had once teased her along with the rest. Ewan was her first crush, the close family friend that would occasionally stick up for her when Bonnie wanted nothing to do with her closet-braniac little sister. The older she got the more she realized just how small their town in Scotland was and this was the actual reason she’d had such a hard time fitting in. To this day, she really doesn’t make an effort to go back to Scotland.

When she received her final grades and an acceptance to her first choice university she decided to try her hand elsewhere, it all feeling just to easy. Her parents, who were unaware of their youngest child being so gifted,  were none to pleased to hear of her deferral. Still, she applied to schools all over the world and applied for loads of scholarships. In the end it all worked out in her favor. Receiving several scholarships, Thora had more options for university than everyone she knew combined. Taking a big chance she chose a school in Spain and never looked back. Barcelona was kind to her, even though she had a hard time choosing a major. Despite being overwhelmed by different cultures, art, language, and architecture, the move solidified that she belonged outside of Scotland. After a freak accident in a restaurant she’d been working in where a patron went into cardiac arrest and she had to assist, Thora realized her true calling. Finishing out her time with a major in medicine and receiving certifications in nursing she decided she still wanted to travel and knew her degree could take her anywhere.

Bonnie and all her childhood friends had newly settled in Los Angeles and after years apart she felt like it might be time to explore while trying to heal that relationship. Luckily, almost all her certifications were carried over and those that hadn’t weren’t too expensive to re-certify stateside. With her exemplary academic record, Thora quickly found a job at UCLA Hospital in their psychiatric ward. Renting a basement out of a doctor’s townhouse on the beach, she couldn’t be happier with her current lot in life. She’s close to her job, her sister, and people that she would roughly define as childhood or family friends. She’s the one who convinced Bonnie and the lot to join this Los Angeles social network and it was mainly due to her deflecting her hopes for her life in this new city on them. Mainly, Thora wants to make some friends of her own and certainly doesn’t want to get back in Bonnie’s shadow. Also, though she’d never admit, she wants to try her hand at a relationship- as she’s never seriously dated before because she was so focused on balancing work and school.

Giovanni “Gio” Leone || 28 || Leone Crime Family Member & Accountant || Straight


The Leone family is New York’s most notorious Italian-American crime family, and has been for a number of years. Vincenzo Leone inherited the family business from his father back in the 70s and over the next 40 years built it up from a lowly protection racket into the empire it is today. The business now runs guns, drugs, and partakes in many other illegal activities, with factories, clubs and other enterprises acting as a front. Vinnie’s wife - Camilla Ciprianni - was a childhood sweetheart who fell in love with the man and married into a life she didn’t quite understand. Nonetheless she supported him in everything he did, looking the other way when it came to the morally-grey aspects of his business. As the two began to get on in years, Vinnie began to pass the business onto his four sons, Franklin the eldest, and the younger triplets - Anthony, Giovanni, and Nicholas.

Giovanni ‘Gio’ Leone is the middle of the Leone triplets, and the most intelligent of the three. Gio was always driven to do well in school by his father, which caused him to develop a more logical mind. When he graduated high school he was accepted into Yale where he studied business and law. Since finishing his degree he has helped with the financial side of the business, acting as the accountant and helping the family to put money into offshore accounts. Gio is the only of the family that requires glasses, wearing them whenever he is reading or writing, and he is the only of the triplets that regularly wears suits. He gets along well with all of his brothers - even Nico, the rebellious one - as he understands not everyone can have the intellect he does, and sees it as his job to look after them.

When Frankie was given more control over the business, he decided to expand it. While he stayed in New York, he sent his younger triplet brothers to LA in order to open up a new club to see if it could be a profitable venture for them. After nearly a year there, news hit that their father, Vinnie, had died, and the triplets all returned to New York for a few months to help as Frankie took over the rest of the business and to look after their mother. After a period of grieving, the triplets returned to LA again. Gio joined the social network in order to meet someone around Los Angeles that could help fulfill his needs. He also saw it as an opportunity to pick up more clients as an accountant. He also wanted to use it to keep an eye on his brothers, and make sure they didn’t get into any trouble he’d have to get them out of.
