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.
Braylen: -back is now in pain- My backkk -tries to get up but stuck underneath Daniel- I didn't disapp--..oh yeah I did. >n>;; Uhh...pretend that didn't happen and that I've been hibernating in my room.
Braylen: -remembers that horrible experience- e A e;; -sighs and just lays there- I got taken back home by my folks, then I pissed them off again and was shipped back. -sighs again- Next time I screw up, they are sending me to military school.
Braylen: -sits up and shrugs- I went back to my 'rebellious' ways. As in playing more basketball than studying. Staying at my friend's house to avoid arguments with them. -rolls eyes- Do I look like a lawyer type to you? >A>
||Sorry for Double Post, but it cut off my reply...||
Talib frowned. "Ah...But I..." he sighed gently and nodded. "Your welcome Braylen..." He blushed gently. He wished he could stay with him a bit longer. However, he didn't want him to be weird or grossed out. Talib paid for the bill adn walked himself home. His home path was in the park. "Mnn..." Walks towards the park and spots Braylen. "Um...Braylen... C-Can I ask you something?" He ran towards hte male.
Braylen had been sitting down on the ground, leaning against the fence of the basketball court and already dozing off before he suddenly heard his named called. He looked up, yawning loudly. "What is it..?"
Talib blushed and pressed his fingers together. "I-I see..." he smiled cutely. "S-Sorry for asking Braylen, its just a lot of people didn't like me back in Russia because I was so...um...I was...un..like a girl..I'm very timid." he blushed and sigh.
"Wha...that's a stupid reason to not like someone." He rolled his eyes. "Don't let what people say get to you so easily. Just be who you wanna be. Well, that's what I think." He closed his eyes again, enjoying the sun on his back and the shade from the trees nearby over his face.
Talib blushed gently. "Mnn...T-Thank you." He sat down next to Braylen, but not too close. He laid down and fell asleep. He was so tired, but he didn't want to leave...at least, not yet. He just made himself into a small fetus position, sleeping gently.
