Braylen is a very secluded person in a way. He gives off an 'uncaring' persona and is very obsessed with basketball. He isn't very good at conversations and doesn't show much interest in anything else unless someone can make the topics interesting for him to actually speak up and not simply walk away, making him seem rude when it reality he is just very awkward [shy] and likes to stay away from people he doesn't know well. Hell, it took Braylen's friends back home quite a while to get him to warm up to them and actually get him to talk and hang out whenever they could. But alas, Braylen's rigid behavior still makes him almost untouchable to others and they just leave him be to his basketball training. He's very bad at displaying affection for someone and very awkward when it comes to hugging or holding hands. He has a big control over his emotions so he can sometimes be quick to anger, embarrassment, or sadness, but will try and make up an excuse to leave quickly or hide the accidental exposed feelings. So far he has been labeled a 'rebel' by his parents and he has decided to try and play the part of that, though of course he is failing miserably so far.

Born in Townsville, Australia, Braylen became a part of his family and their line of business which had anything to do with Law. His mother was a bailiff and his father was a judge. Their hopes for him were to become a lawyer, since they believed they needed one in the family. But they had gotten a troublemaker on their hands.
Braylen hated law, finding it boring and would fall asleep during family nights when they would watch marathons of crimes shows. He didn't care about working in a courthouse and helping someone into freedom. His true love was basketball, which he had learned and played with his friends daily after school without fail. He wanted to become a basketball star and move to America to join the NBA.
His parents were not happy with this! As Braylen continued to rebel from trying out for law academies and his attitude getting progressive worse, they feared he would instead become a criminal to get back at them in the future. So in order to stop this, they forced Braylen to be admitted into the famous elite academy in hopes the school setting and teachings would bring him 'back to Earth' about his childish dream and become a lawyer like they believed he should be.
But alas, only a few months at the school, he was brought back home by his parents. They had assumed just a couple months there and he would be a changed man immediately afterwards. Braylen just played along a bit, just to make them happy for once but once he was back with his basketball group and ditching his studies as he had done before. His parents seemed to have just about enough it it. They tried to ground him, take away his basketball equipment, even threatening to send him off to military school in order to fully convert him into a more mature and obedient child. Braylen didn't like this at all and kind of feared being abandoned at a military base in the near future.
And so he made a deal with them. Let him go back to his old school and he'd be on his best behavior once he got back. Surprisingly the trick worked and soon he was shipped back to Ireland, dropped off at the familiar grounds of the school.
