Melvin puts a hand on his shoulder. "When you're out there... no funny business okay? This isn't one of our shows. If you're not careful you might..." He doesn't finish.
"...I have to laugh. I have to laugh, if I don't, I..." Kendrick quiets, rubbing his face. "They're out there getting lined up, some of them are crying. They say they remember the dark and it had a nicer face than this. I showed them a parlor trick. I can't watch them cry...." He looks up at Melvin. "People care about you. And if you did something, somehow you've got to own it but get over it. Because you're useless if you're wailing about it all your life. You have to be the one to choose to get better, no one can do it for you. We can only give you the opportunity."
Rather short in stature, lithe and agile. He is strong enough to be a fast runner, but thin enough that one is aware he spent time on the streets and only just got out of said life a couple years prior. Walks as if he's half a foot taller than he is, not arrogant, but proud of who he is and what he can do. He pops his back often.
Tan, his family descends from desert dwellers but he is a bit paler, as he has not lived in these areas himself. His feet are calloused as he often walks barefoot, and his fingertips are also calloused from recovering from very minor burns as he was learning to manipulate fire. Blonde hair, mash the color gold and flaxen together, well trimmed nails, he has some back issues.
His most notable features are his brilliant blue eyes and his snarky, shit eating grin. His brows tend to furrow to aid in creating the smirking look on his face, but his face maintains an almost childish youth to it.
His hair reaches his neck and nearly his shoulders, except for one section that is a ponytail reaching partway down his behind. His confident voice and the loud slap of his feet on the ground will be the first things that you notice besides the strange hair.
Right handed. He pops his back a lot. When he is relaxed, he stands with his back straight but his shoulders slouched and his thumbs tucked into pockets if he has them. When he meets new people or is performing, his posture is so prim that he enters into hyperlordosis in his lower back, his shoulders pulled back, and his head tilts up. He makes grand gestures with his arms and creates a persona with his physical demeanor that makes him seem bigger than he is. When he is sneaking about or trying to steal, he reverses this behavior, compacting himself and going quiet.
Apparel & Accessories
If there is a shirt that exposes midriff, Kendrick owns it. He enjoys wearing red and gold, or blue and silver. He is not a fan of dull colors, and will wear any color available before brown- except for travel boots. Those are harder to find in fun colors anyway.
He has a staff with a massive sun and moon design that he uses to smack people while fighting. This is the sole reason I plan to give him a level in monk.
He's a phoenix sorcerer. Fire n shit.
General elementary education, unfinished
He is a great performer and story teller, he's charming and quick witted.
Morality & Philosophy
You will make mistakes, so you better own up to it, live with the consequences, and become better from it.
He has no idea who he is attracted to because he's never really considered romance, but he's pretty open to flirting with anyone and anyone flirting with him, depending on their morals. You can have a dick, but don't be one.
He hasn't really explored gender identity as it was never brought up to him, but he is very comfortable defining as male.
His current goal is to become powerful, skilled, and knowledgeable enough to break his father out of prison, get away with it, and get his father back to his family a large distance away without getting caught. He loves performing and travels all over, using performance to hone his craft, to make connections, and to learn.
Quotes & Catchphrases
"I'm alive, and that means I can't sit on my ass, wailing about how stupid I was. Other people will wail about how stupid I am for as long as I live, we blame anyone we can for our problems, so it's not my job to do that. It's my job to get the hell over it, do what I can to fix it, and...and show that I care about what I did, yeah, but more than that, I care what I'm going to do about it."
Savvies & Ineptitudes
He's great at garnering attention and and popularity, he's terrible at convincing people to like him if they hate him off the bat.
Likes & Dislikes
He loves lemon pastries, he despises any and all magic involving blood. He also hates strong alcohol.
Virtues & Personality perks
He's charming, quick witted, confident and driven. He will always own up to his mistakes, ALWAYS.
Vices & Personality flaws
He's brash, short tempered, oblivious, and afraid to fail. A bit of a germophobe.
He pops his back a LOT.
He is always clean. He hates being dirty, it reminds him of living on the streets, starving, struggling to survive. He doesn't want to live like that anymore. Being dirty can increase his anxiety.

The list of amazing people following the adventures of Kendrick.

Honorary & Occupational Titles

Wealth & Financial state
He was born to a rather poor family, his uncle was rather well off as he was a traveling magical performer and merchant of trinkets and items he found on dangerous adventures and Kendrick once aspired to be like him. Currently he is rather frugal with funds, buying the necessities- unless it comes to clothes. He gets a bit excited about fancy clothing. And nice smelling soaps. And jewelry. His income comes from performance work, odd jobs, and funds from adventuring companies that contract for singular jobs.
Currently he does not follow any gods or deities, but he does believe that fae creatures everyone thinks aren't real do indeed exist.
Charismatic and flirtatious, great at getting attention and notoriety and convincing people to like him- unless they start off disliking him. He's terrible about changing their minds with words, his only luck ends up being with action at that point. He thinks he's capable and strong, but an ignorant child nonetheless and he has a lot he feels he must atone for. He is very formal around elders. Boisterous, lively, fun, and confident.
Hobbies & Pets
He loves storytelling and performing, he does not have any pets but wishes he could have one. He likes to play pranks from time to time, and he's very invested in learning but learning through action, not just books.
He speaks with confidence and a loud tone most of the time, as he keeps up a front of confidence and boisterous joy most of the time. When he's vulnerable, he's quiet and slouches, losing the fake height his personality adds, he seems small and lonely. His voice is slightly higher in pitch than the average adolescent boy's, but this does not phase him. He frequently compliments people on their 'style', he speaks very formally with elders, and the greatest insult to come from Kendrick is when he deems you are not worth his time.
