welcome to destiny's strata!

PREMIUM - MATURE

The town seems like any other town. Simple, quiet on the exterior but digging beyond the surface will reveal a whole new world of deception, lies, and most of all, power. This is where the rich come to raise their families. But they all have their dirty little secrets. Isolating themselves from the rest of the world is the norm here, weeding out the 'bad seeds'. The children are raised with a sense of 'being privileged' and their parents encourage this. They go to private universities where they are taught to rule the world.

But there is one little problem...

The government says they have to allow a certain number of scholarships every year to the underprivileged kids or risk the closure of their schools. On the far end of town lives the poor, the down-trodden, and the downright scum of the earth, or, at least, that is how the upper class sees them. Mana Marrow tries to hide this embarrassment in their town but now, with the government intervening, they will have to allow some of these young adults to mix with their own precious, spoiled, and pampered offspring. The town comes together to form 'The Hetaireia', a secret society for the Elite, and figures out a way to make this work in their favor, however, and soon the lucky chosen underprivileged youth begin their university studies only to find that all is not as it seems. A hierarchy is born and they find themselves at the bottom rung, treated as less than second class citizens.

Will you be one of the privileged students that seem to rule the schools?
Or will you be one of the poor, who struggle for the acceptance that they may never find?
Or maybe you will be an adult, working in the town, the schools, or at the factory that supplies jobs for little pay and hard labor?

The choice is yours, so choose wisely!

face claim: Not Applicable; deceased

tristan ainsworth. 16. ridge creek student.

Tristan is the typical privileged teen, entitled, opinionated, and rebellious. He has deep seeded guilt over his brother's death. He knows his parents blame him for not being able to save Sterling, particularly his father causing a strained relationship. Tristan is now the family heir by default but has no desire to become mayor or lead the city council or Hetaireia, even though he believes in the hierarchy, but fears his father and feels he has no choice.
face claim: scott gardner

rosalind ainsworth. 14. ravenswood student.

Spoiled and pampered, Rosalind is the baby of the family and because of this along with being the only girl, she is definitely treated as the princess. Though she is also sweet and kind and cares about others, including the commoners of the town, making her beliefs much different than the rest of her family.
face claim: india eisley



denvers

richard "dic" denvers. 44. elite.

Ex-lawyer, state senator and owner of Crown Industries, which mass produces the pharmaceutical for which the town of Mana Marrow is so famous, Richard Denvers is descended from one of the town's four founding fathers, Ephraim Denvers.
face claim: james patrick stuart

face claim: andy biersack

Robyn Denvers is the four-year-old son of Maximilian Denvers, born out of a relationship that went slightly too far. And, of course, he's growing right into the perfect little model of his father.
face claim: jake hold (when older)



Fitzroy

Michael Fitzroy. 42. elite.

A ruthless businessman, Mike isn't a stranger to shady dealings if it meant he got his way. More often than not his business keeps him out of the country, jet-setting all over the world, mostly in Asia, especially India, China, Japan. He is an absentee father and pretty much only still married to his 'wife' on paper.
face claim: jonathan rhys meyers

Patricia Fitzroy. 39. Elite.

Patty had married for money, not love. For the first few years she managed to keep up appearances, but as more time passed, the distance between her and her husband just kept growing until she didn't even care to be around him anymore, as long as he kept paying for her expenses, even when she was living somewhere in Europe. Coming back to Mana Marrow, a place she loathed, isn't in any of her plans, but it isn't completely impossible.
face claim: anne hathaway

Damian Fitzroy. 17. Ridge Creek Student.

There was a time when Dames tried bleeding money to get attention from his parents, but when that didn't work, when both of them continued to treat him with indifference mostly, he began to live more sensibly, but as though he had no parents at all. If they were going to act like he meant nothing to them, he could do the same. They would be bound by the tethers of money and names, nothing else.
face claim: brendon urie

Whitman

Thomas Whitman. 48. elite.

The Whitmans are one of the four founding families, their origins tracing back to Scotland. Thomas is a cut-throat lawyer, the Head of his own law firm, one of the most important in Mana Marrow, and one which specializes in business law. Thomas has been married three times, and is currently divorced. He is an authoritarian man, a womanizer and misogynist, selfish and greedy, has no moral compass whatsoever and it shows in the way he uses people.
face claim: ray stevenson

Rose Whitman. 21. Elite.

Thomas' daughter from his first marriage, her mother is Eva Morgan. Born a lesbian, from an early age she felt her father’s disappointment that she hadn't been born a boy and ever since then has been trying to be a son to him. Closed off and emotionally unavailable, she is unable to keep a relationship for long and will sometimes react violently towards her girlfriends. She is studying law and works for her father in his law firm. Rose deeply loves her brother Caleb.
face claim: ruby rose

Caleb Whitman. 20. Ridge Creek Faculty.

Eva Morgan's second child, Caleb is the oldest male son and Rose's brother. Like Thomas, he is a womanizer, ambitious and mostly soulless, however Caleb has a very short fuse and doesn’t take much for him to lose his temper. The only person he seems to care about is Rose. He and his father often end up fighting, and when left unsupervised they punch each other in the face. Caleb is studying Art only because his father hates this.
face claim: tom hiddleston

Patrick Whitman. 20. Elite.

Patrick is the first son of Meredith Vega and was born while his father was still married to his first wife. He is kind and compassionate, sweet and dependable.

As a student in the seminary of Mana Marrow, he wants to become a Priest, even though he may often fall into temptation.
face claim: misha collins

Mark Whitman. 18. Elite.

The second son of Meredith Vega, Mark was born after his father and mother were married. He presents Asperger syndrome and has a very hard time socializing and communicating, even with his family. His father often tries to dismiss his symptoms as the boy ‘being difficult’ and being too ‘pampered’. After his mother died, he regressed. Patrick is the only one who can really connect with him due to his natural kindness, and often acts like a parent to him.
face claim: rasmus ledin

Weston Whitman. 17. Elite.

Weston is the only son of the third ex-wife, Heather. Like his father, he is a hedonistic boy and an evil master mind. People are there for his amusement. He is sociopathic, cold and often unsympathetic, but he is sort of loyal to his siblings and admires Caleb very much. Weston also has a soft spot for Patrick and Mark, but secretly (not so secretly) hates his father and dislikes his mother. He also hates Reese.
face claim: boyd holbrook

Reese Hetfield. 22. Elite.

Thomas' bastard was raised with his siblings but never recognized as a legitimate son. However he is the most loyal to their father. Often silent and dark, he works for his father as a personal assistant, often executing the man’s dirty deeds, using his expertise in martial arts and firearms. Reese doesn’t mix well with his brothers or sister and is mostly ignored when they get together. Patrick has tried to get close to him but his efforts have been useless so far.

face claim: open!

Rachel Stevens. 15. MM Public Student.

face claim: open!

Step-sister to Evan and Rachel, it was hard for Katie Stevens to adapt to her new family at first, partially due to the large age difference but, now, she gets on especially well with her older brother.
