Skylar Simms || 23 || Musician || Straight
Born and raised in San Francisco, Skylar Simms is the only biological child to her parents but at the age of ten, her parents decided that it was their duty to adopt children who were in need of a home and a family. Sure at first, Skylar hated it but as the years went on she got used to it. In the end she ended up with more siblings which turned out not too bad. Ever since she could remember she would sit down the younger children and her parents and play mini shows with her guitar in the living room. She could sit there for hours just singing her random songs about random things.
When she was seventeen, Skylar made the brave decision to move from San Francisco to Los Angeles alone to pursue music. Of course her parents had told her all the negative things that could happen but she didn’t care, she needed to do this for herself. Getting a job working in a cafe, she began to play at all their open mic nights and eventually got noticed and signed. However, because of how unique her voice and style was the company decided that she wouldn’t be able to sell records. So she was dropped.
Ever since the age of eighteen, Skylar had been signed and dropped a few more times when eventually at twenty-one she got signed to the Black Diamond Records label that finally understood her rock style and were willing to risk money on her. Before she had even got into the studio to record her album she was put on tour with the band Ghostly Images. Straight away she connected to the front man Ronnie, but as far as she knew he was in love with another girl. However as the tour went on, feelings developed and a relationship bloomed.
After her return to Los Angeles, the relationship with Ronnie developed but after many highs and lows Skylar decided she needed a little time to herself to figure things out and decide what she wanted to do with her life so headed back to San Francisco. Her decision to come back to LA was for the sole purpose to be there for Axel and Fraye, things with Ronnie wouldn’t continue. As for her career in the music industry, well that wasn’t certain either.

Arnold Trembley || 38 || Owner of WildFire Productions || **Sexuality Up To Player**
If you haven’t heard of the infamous feud between the Trembley brothers, then you must not read the paper or watch television. Arnold, the middle child, might be one of the more famous of the three brothers, but he also likes to stay relatively low-key compared to his siblings. He appears at events and donates to various charities, but, make no mistake, he’s still a Trembley; just because he doesn’t stage as many dramatic stunts as Silas or cause as many scenes as Neil doesn’t mean that he is completely lacking when it comes to a mischievous streak. Arnold is the most level-headed and cautious of the three (though that doesn’t mean much) and he uses that to his benefit; nobody would ever suspect that he’s masterminded a few plots of his own.
Born and raised with his brothers in Ontario, Canada, it became evident very early on that the three Trembley boys would compete over nearly anything. Little league was a war, the piano was an intense battle and grades were somehow a measure of worth between each boy. Despite all of that, the boys loved each other very much and eventually learned that they could accomplish great things if they worked together instead of warring with one another.
Arnold was the first to move to Los Angeles in hopes of finding fame and fortune, but his brother Neil was the one who came up with the idea that they should start music production companies. It was after they were well-established with Trembley Recording that a very public fight seemed to drive them apart and forced Arnold to make his own business, WildFire Productions. The story doesn’t end there, however, for both of the Trembley boys experienced quite a bit of media publicity and even gained more customers due to the nature of their fight and their reputations.It was then that they realized that a very public “feud” could make them more money than being kind to one another, an idea that came idly from their older brother who was the last Trembley to move to Los Angeles.
Now Arnold is content to fight with his brother in public and laugh at the show it causes in private. Though nobody knows it — not even his parents — Arnold and Neil love one another very much and still make time to spend together which usually causes rumors to fly around in the media before their next big, public fight. Since they now own “rivaling” music companies, both Trembley brothers have a monopoly on the music industry in America and parts of Europe; with two of the most noteworthy companies in the heart of LA, it’s no wonder that they seem to have let their fame go to their head.

Winston “Opie” Churchill || 31 || Sergeant At Arms With The Sons Of Anarchy || Straight
Winston Churchill was born and raised around the Son of Anarchy’s LA cache. His father being a part of the club, best friends with the club President, his best friend naturally growing up with Jackson Turner; the President’s son. He was an only child and had the sole attention of his mother and father. He grew up around the club and fell in love with motorcycles at a young age. Always with his dad in the shop and helping out the best he could.
Over the years growing up, Opie did the best he could in school, not really able to concentrate. He managed to slip through the cracks, but there was one class he did succeed in and that was automotive. That class was the only thing that gave him the desire to graduate high school. Jax and Opie graduated with decent grades. Naturally, Opie held a job at Turner Motives and it kept his relationship close with his father. Opie wanted to become a prospect, but his father would push him to not. That it wasn’t the lifestyle he wanted his son to have.
Opie knew what went on with the club. They weren’t one to hide it to family. He was one that was trusted to work on the member’s bikes. He had watched people live and die by brotherhood, but he still wanted to be a part of it. He was naïve in the sense because when he found out his mother was killed due to retaliation from one of the other gangs, he never knew the grief he felt for losing his mother. His father took it the hardest, hell bent to avenge her death. It was only a matter of time until it ate at his father and the insanity caused him to take his own life. Leaving Opie with no family except Jax, who he considered his brother. The only option for him was to become a prospect.
Over the first year Opie was in essence the bitch who had to do whatever the members wanted. Cleaning up the scenes, cooking, errands, etc. But he didn’t care, he wanted at that table. He was voted in by all members and proudly worn the patches and tattoos. A year into the club, a drop went bad and Opie took the heat for his best friend Jax, which led to a five year term in prison. Jax bought him protection. Though Opie was big enough to take care of himself, he liked the idea that his brotherhood was looking over him.
Once released he went back to the club to find that Jackson was now President. Jackson was grateful for Opie actions and made him his Sergeant at Arms, always having his brother’s right hand side and at the table. That is where he plans to stay always at the right side, surrounded by his family and brothers. Jackson helped him look into finding who killed his mother and he reaped vengeance for both his parents. After a few years of figuring out who he is and establishing himself, Opie is ready to socialize outside of his group of friends.

Sergio Adrian Iscobel || 20 || Student & Soccer Player At UCLA || Bicurious
No one could have thought that after having 3 girls back to back the Iscobel family was ever getting a boy. On August 23 1993 that all changed and Sergio was born around midnight of that day. He was born and raised in San Diego to a wealthy and powerful Mexican family. His father owned the biggest and most exclusive night clubs around California while his mother was the founder of her own successful cosmetic line. He was the baby of the family since his youngest sister had 10 years on him. Sergio lived the life that every person wished to have. He was wealthy and popular in school which only fed his cocky and arrogant ego. Sergio was captain of his soccer team and also president of the student body. He was loved and worshipped around his school and everyone wanted to be friends with the famous Sergio Iscobel.
His oldest sister worked at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Sergio would always go when he was a young boy to look around the giant museum. That was where his attraction to art came about. He wanted to learn how to draw and paint pictures like the ones hanging up on the walls so he asked his parents to enroll him in as much art classes as possible which was exactly what they did. From the first art lesson Sergio was hooked and he knew this was a talent he wasn’t going to give up. He stuck with it until he found another talent which was soccer. Sergio started playing around 14 years old when his father signed him up for a youth league. The boy simply shrugged and decided to try it out for that summer. Soon enough he was hooked just like art and he ended up playing all the way up to high school where he made varsity his freshman year. He was still painting and drawing but not as much as he used to because soccer had taken over his life. It was a passion like no other for Sergio and he knew that he wanted to play for the big leagues.
Sergio graduated with a good GPA and instead of going away for college to another state he decided to enroll at UCLA as an art major. He still loved art but he knew he wasn’t going to make a career out of that talent but he thought since he was already good at it he might as well continue until he left. Sergio also made the soccer team and got the starting spot as midfielder. The coaches were impressed with his try outs but they were concerned about just how rough Sergio got when trying to get the ball and win games. Yes he was incredibly good and his talent was unbelievable but he was sort of a ball hog and aggressive towards the opposite players when he played. But they soon forgot that when Sergio was scoring goal after goal during their pre season games.
The young male’s personality is definitely one of a kind. He’s very cocky up to the point where he doesn’t care about anyone other than himself. He’s extremely competitive and doesn’t like to lose. His wit and charm always makes people want to be his friends and there is just something about him that make others want to be around him. He’s very fond of girls (and sometimes guys) and won’t hesitate to go after the one he wants until he gets her. His parents say he has a very addicting personality and it usually shows in things he does. Sergio knows he’ll be famous someday so he doesn’t really care about being humble or nice to people that he thinks are below him. He thinks of himself as a leader, one who other people dream to be but that could just be his ego talking which talks for him about 90% of the time.

Neil Trembley || 36 || Owner of Trembley Recording || **Sexuality Up To Player**
The youngest of the Trembley family was a complete accident, but a happy one. Born with a competitive streak, he pushed his older brother, Arnold, to soar to new heights and reach for things that he might not have attempted otherwise. Though the push for achievement was mutual — and some of it was also Silas’ doing — Neil was undoubtedly the most motivated of the three brothers. Thankfully, this motivation never did leave him and he found himself seeking out the bright lights of the big city as opposed to the cold of his Ontario (though some say he only moved to the sates in pursuit of Arnold, his older brother).
Starting a music production company had originally been Arnold’s idea, but it was marketed and achieved by Neil. Quick-witted and driven, Neil was just the type of person to move to Los Angeles and begin networking as soon as he hopped off the plane. After making all of the proper connections and finding the funds to start the business, he and his brother opened up Trembley Recording.
To say that business was slow at first was an understatement. The Trembley brothers weren’t exactly a well known name in the realm of music and they had big companies to compete with, but they started picking up a few bands here and there that churned out the occasional one-and-done kind of hit. With fame creeping up on their shoulders, they began making appearances together at music awards and charity galas, the latter of which played host to a fight that ended with both boys being kicked out of a fundraiser for cancer-stricken children. The a phenomenon happened.
People began calling Trembley Recording for interviews and also to sign on with the record company. It seemed as if the poor decisions of the brothers made the media take notice and start a firestorm, which then prompted various music groups to sign onto the label. This uprising only gained speed with Arnold left Trembley Recording to start his own company, WildFire Productions. With quite a few big bands under the company’s belt, Neil began receiving the recognition that he believed his company deserved.
Instead of making up with his brother publicly, Neil decided to push for an idea that Silas proposed: He and Arnold would pretend to hate one another for the sake of publicity. It was simple enough and, much to their surprise, it worked out quite well. As it turned out, people in the Los Angeles area loved a good fight and they wanted to be involved in the music empires created by few “warring” brothers. Nobody knows that their first public fight was little more than two brothers blowing off steam, and Neil likes to keep it that way. Besides, how could anybody doubt the man with the convincing smile, good sense of humor and sharp mind

Silas Trembley || 42 || Hobbyist || **Sexuality Up To Player**
The oldest Trembley brother is a bit of a mystery to those who don’t know him; his parents joke that his entire life has been one big midlife crisis while others claim that his flighty and irresponsible nature has made him the person he is today. Without a job or a home of his own, Silas spends his time between his brother’s homes (sometimes even using vacation houses and condos when he wants to impress women or mooch off of his family in private) or bouncing between the apartments and houses of short-term friendships and flings. He’s never been one to commit to anything, even go as far as to call himself a “professional freeloader” when asked about his occupation.
Since he was a boy, Silas continually picked up hobby after hobby in a desperate attempt to find something that could keep his attention. The violin was too boring, magic was too difficult, art was just frustrating, and writing took too much thought; nothing could keep his mind occupied for very long. He became something of a joke within his own family — a joke that he didn’t mind until his later years when his efforts ceased to be endearing and began to become pathetic — but that didn’t stop him from continuing to abandon his pursuits only weeks after beginning. Silas wanted instant success and that simply couldn’t come without any amount of work.
His younger brothers moved to Los Angeles after deciding that Canada couldn’t fulfill their dreams of success, and Silas found himself following soon after their fight involving a very public charity gala was plastered all over the news. To this day he prides himself in being the one that thought of exploiting bad press for business purposes and he doesn’t care to remind his brothers that they had planned to publicly make up before he discovered the recipe for their success. Some small part of him seems to think that this gives him a right to leech off of their money, but another part of him knows that he doesn’t actually have to have a reason since his brothers are usually too busy to tell him not to volley between their homes.
Since Silas is now situated comfortably — but not too comfortably — in LA, he’s had time to pursue a plethora of other hobbies and is still trying to find something that will hopefully catch his attention enough to make him want to settle down and find his own place in the world. Strangely enough, the lifestyle he leads has started to make him feel more and more fulfilled and Silas isn’t entirely sure what to do about that. Will he eventually find the one thing that makes him happy or will he continue to drift through life as a jack of all trades?
