Appearance

Eye Colour:
Brown

Height:
6'3"

Hair Colour:
Dark brown/black

Build:
lean

General Dressing Style:
Wears glasses most of the time (contacts are usually too much effort). Likes things that don't make him stand out too much, but are still nice.

General Description:
I'm so terrible at this, idk, *points at pictures*.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Black hair, big brown eyes. At 6'3" he's pretty tall compared to most people, though he somehow appears much shorter when next to his parents. Something about the sheer amount of confidence they have that he lacks.

Simon Gong

Personality

Likes:
— little sister, Serena
— tinkering with things
— studying

Strengths:
— Loyal

Dislikes:
— idiots who waste his time
— dirty things/places (bit of a germaphobe)

Flaws:
— can be a total pushover if it avoids conflict, especially with his parents or authority figures
— insular upbringing, most of his knowledge about interacting with people is from books and things, not from Actual Experience

Habits, Mannerisms & Quirks:
—Paranoid/Overthinks

General Personality:
Overall, grumpy nerd. Studies way too much, doesn't know how to have fun. Just about the only exception is when it comes to his little sister, because "he has fun when she has fun."

Simon Gong

History

Family:
Birth father: Zhao [name]
Birth mother: [name]

Adopted father: David Zhao (Zhao Weishu)
Adopted mother: Vivian Zhao (Feng Peishan)
Adopted sister: Serena Zhao (Zhao Xiying)

Relationships:
He's a very dedicated nerd, he spends his time split between mundane studying, magic studying, and babysitting his little sister. So he really hasn't made a lot of friends. He probably has a mundane college friend or two that he had to interact with for projects and THEY insisted on staying in touch.

Secrets:
— He has the part time mundane job because his parents give him an allowance of how much of the family money he is allowed to use, and he has to report all of the family money he uses and why. The money he earns is his own, so he doesn't have to justify how he spends it to his mother.

Known:
— He absolutely dotes on his little sister
— His parents went off to do ~something important~, leaving Serena to his care with the promise that he will NOT fuck her or her education up.
— He's an artificer "in training," and while he can't /technically/ sell you things, he can maybe be persuaded to "gift" some of his "practice" work...

Skills:
Familiar—Takes the form of a pipistrelle bat. Subtle and extremely good at eavesdropping. Her name is Pip, pronounced "peep," after the type of bat.

Important History:
— Adopted when very young, doesn't recall his birth family other than a few vague impressions at best. In some ways, he's not so much "adopted" as he is a live in apprentice/assistant to the artificer couple who took him in when his parents died [are they actually dead? who knows, could be future plot stuff]. His birth parents and adoptive parents were part of the same group of mages in China and are distantly related (Andrew has the impression his parents were lower status by a not insignificant amount).
— Early '90s, family moved to whatever the nearest magic community to San Francisco was.
— Took a break from artificer training to get a mundane degree (electrical engineering) a year or two after he finished high school (2006). His parents thought it was smart to have one, in case he ever needed a mundane job.
— After he graduates college (~2012) the family relocates to Greenbrooke.
— 2014, little sister Serena is born.
