Giles Xanadu Indigo
Giles Indigo was adopted by two Hippies who had waited to have kids and ended up missing the window. They gave him plenty of space to find himself, and never put labels on anything he did or wanted to be. However, just before he started school they did however push respect for nature and how humans used machines to destroy the planet. Shortly after that talk, he began to tinker with machines. He told his parents that the machines weren't at fault for what people made them do, and he wanted to make them do better. Since it kept him out of trouble, and his mind open to the world around him, his parents got him textbooks on mechanics and science and gave him an allowance for his projects. He even won his first science fair. The next year, however, he got second place to his next-door neighbor Hector Reyes beat him with an equally impressive entry. The two began to have a fierce rivalry that slowly became a strong friendship. Giles also got to know Hector's younger brother Isaac, who mostly just watched the two older boys make some new contraptions while he sat silently. Giles and Hector made to include him in the process and soon he was the perfect assistant and occasional partner when the two were making things. As the years passed, Hector left before Middle school for boarding school. He stopped coming around even when he was back from wherever he left, and he was always snippy and curt when he did see his best friend. Giles knew he was suffering, but couldn't help When he died saving his younger brother, Giles was devastated and confused at the same time. His best friend dead, the victim's younger brother scarred across the face and no explanation for any of it. Rather than dwell, he chose to make sure Isaac didn't take shit from the other kids for the scarring or details about the attack. He often got his other friends to take Isaac out for something small, like ice cream or the beach if others were going; anything to cheer him up. He likes to think that his scheming, as well as Isaac's slate of teachers, got him back to his old self. Since he's left high school he's not on there, but He knows his 'brother' could handle it.
