Character Bios

Lock: The Banished Spirit


Lock is a 14 year old ghost, cursed with banishment and damnation. Being a spirit, Lock's skin is as white as paper and his hair set in deep black dye. Being a banished spirit means that Lock is demonic, allowing him access to great dark powers of the underworld and gives him an appearance of evil.
He has fierce green eyes that burn underneath his fringe, and wears a school uniform of egg white top, stripe green and black tie and green shorts.
Personality wise, Lock can be arrogant, rude, selfish and childish. He is possessive of what he believes belongs to him; everything else is a mere annoyance which he dismisses immediately. Beneath the rude boy attitude that Lock puts up, he still craves the attention and acceptance of those around him, especially of his family that appeared to have out casted him before his untimely death.

There is also the problem Lock faces when he meets a 15 year old human host, called Rachael. Unknowingly, he finds himself overly attached to the girl and tries to fix his crude behaviour, wanting to become the type of man worth loving.

Rachael Hastings:

Rachael is 15 years old, and the only child to George and Dianne Hastings. Before her encounter with the Banished Spirit Lock, Rachael had an ordinary life where she attended high school in the city. Her favourite subjects included Philosophy and biology. She often comments on her lack of athletic ability, and sees herself as being plain or ordinary.
