Character Sheet for Freddie Colon
He tends to be a somewhat stoic person, leaning towards the depressed side more often than the happy side.
As he comes to grips with his past and gets back into the swing of life, he begins to revert back to the fun loving, happy, best-friend-you'll-ever-have even if he's a bit of a wet blanket.
Likes: Food, Greco-Roman wrestling, the olympics, music, family, friends
Dislikes: his diet, being alone, feeling alone, being hungry, being idle
He was born and raised in Puerto Rico, living with his several older and younger brothers and sisters. He was the runt of the boys, and was the brunt of many jokes, but always felt loved and welcomed. His family's main pastimes were cooking and watching professional wrestling.
When one of his "cousins," in reality a close friend and friend of the family, moved to America with his family so that he could get better schooling, they arranged to have him sent along with him, and another friend of the family(and Freddie's best friend), a young Scissortail Flycatcher named Nayelis was sent along as well. The three of them were almost inseparable throughout grade and high school, and in spite of everything, ended up making it into the University of Tennessee together, all moving to Knoxville together so that they could afford an apartment of their own.
After finally saving enough money and building up the courage, Freddie decided to ask Nayelis to marry him after a final's party that they had planned on going to. Not particularly having the courage(he had never even had the courage to ask her out officially, instead relying on her to take the initiative for almost everything), he went into the kitchen and partook in alcohol for the first time in his life, becoming particularly intoxicated.
Nayelis and his cousin had taken for granted that the tea-totaling parrot would be the designated driver, none of them were particularly fit to drive. At the end of the night, Nayelis was dead, Freddie's cousin was crippled, and he was left completely unharmed, leaving him with a cocktail of survivor's guilt, somewhat justified(the other vehicle, a semi truck, was speeding and ran a red light) guilt, as well as the sorrow of losing his first love and the woman he was going to marry.
This understandably left Freddie somewhat melancholy, and he's only just now beginning to grow out of it.
