    History

Côme was the second son of a young, poor couple from Cayenne, French Guiana. When Côme's mother found out she was pregnant with him, she came to the conclusion that she could simply not handle supporting two young children in her situation, and made the hard decision to put both of her sons into a group home. Côme was named there by an employee, as his mother did not want to name him for fear of getting attached to a child she would not raise. Côme grew in the home for the first four years of his life, being mainly cared for by his older brother Carl, until the two children were adopted by Erika Keene, a fashion journalist and wife of Landon Keene, a very wealthy businessman.

Côme grew up as a happy child in the Keene family, never lacking love or stimulation, with his ever need being catered to by his adoptive parents. The family adored him and he always got along with his sister Caroline, his parents, as well as his aunt Paris and her own children. Côme was gifted a baby rabbit for his fifth birthday, though it died a few years later. This was his first pet, and sparked his love for animals in general.

Côme was always popular in school - unlike his brother Carl, whose general education had been severely neglected in the group home and who needed tutors, Côme joined school early in life and had no trouble fitting in with his peers. He was always an active child and loved doing sports - he did martial arts, took swimming classes, and eventually started gymnastics at age 9, which then became his new passion.

Côme met his best friend Lucy - a boy with a girl's name, as other kids used to taunt - in middle school, and they've been inseparable ever since. Lucy lived in a trailer outside of the city, at the edge of the forest, with his father, and it was unclear how exactly he'd gotten into Côme's prestigious private school. Lucy dropped out in his first year of high school, but the two remained very close friends, and Côme would often go all the way out of the city to hang out with him in his trailer.

Côme also became friends with Damien, an older teen and a big fan of skateboarding, and Damien, Côme and Lucy often hang out in town, at the skate park, or in Lucy's trailer.

Côme was noticed by Simone Brush, a former Olympic gymnast now turned coach, at age 12, and became her student. While Simone is strict and demanding of her protégé, she and Côme entertained a friendly relationship, and she is a big inspiration to her. He wants to one day compete in gymnastics on professional levels.

He remains well-liked by his peers in high-school, mainly because of his jovial personality - and also because his older siblings' reputation precedes him, and no one wants to get in trouble with Caroline or Carl. He's not exactly a great student, but he does well enough in class that he wouldn't fail anywhere, and his status as an athlete makes up for his mediocre grades.



    Personality

Côme is very easy-going and friendly. He trusts others easily and likes to see the best in people, even if it might be misguided at times. He is very idealistic, even naïve, though this can be chalked up to his age. Côme enjoys "having a good time" over all other things in life, and finds it hard to be motivated to work on anything that he's not personally interested in. He often gives up on things that require patience or effort - except for gymnastics, which he's passionate about and would practice to the point of injury was his coach not there to watch over him.

Côme is very loving, even clingy, and needs constant attention and affection to feel good. This can easily become annoying to some, though both Côme's family and friends typically have no problem reciprocating - especially his very overbearing mother. While he does demand a lot of affection, he also has no trouble giving it. He is very "touchy-feely" and loves hugging, holding hands or locking arms, and other public displays of affection that might make some uncomfortable. He is very good with pets and children, never getting tired of playing and laughing with them.

He has a harder time relating to people with a more measured or cold temperament, even finding them annoying and thinking they just don't care enough.

He is very easily emotional and has high empathy. He cries in front of movies, shows, at music, or just at videos of cute animals doing cute things.

Côme is very easily stressed and anxious, and needs to relax very often to not get overwhelmed. His favorite ways to unwind are smoking, lounging about with Lucy, and going for a run with Caroline's dog Honey.
