Turn away 'cause I need you more
Personality>> When not in the "zone" Finn is an all-around nice guy. He's charismatic and polite, and will practically sweep people off their feet if it will help them out - especially if it will help him out at the same time. Yes, he can be a bit of a jerk to.
Full of himself, would be another way of describing Finn, as he believes he's the best at what he does and there isn't a lot that can make him change his mind - unless you've been doing gymnastics longer than him, then he'll admire and observe.
All in all though, outside of the gym, Finn is pretty approachable, though not very sharing about himself, and when not in class or the saddle, he can be found with his camera around his neck, taking the odd photo of whatever catches his eye, so it might be an idea to look at what is around you before getting into anything that could be photographed and held against you at a later date.
- Rap (refuses to call it music)
- Uneducated people
- Is afraid of the dark
- Breaking his neck
- Make elite
- Go to the Olympics (as a gymnast or a rider)
- To make at least one good friend
- He's afraid of the dark, so still sleeps with a night light
- Has done his share of prohibited substances and swapped samples with another gymnast before a competition just in case he failed - which he did so the other gymnast was suspended.
It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
Appearance>> With dark brown hair, green eyes, and pale complexion, Finn knows he's not hard on the eye, and standing at five feet and six inches, he's not too intimidating height-wise. He couldn't be described as beefy, though he is all muscle without an ounce of fat on him. His hair is a little on the wild side, possibly a little too long, but he always keeps it tidy and in place with just the right amount of gel.
Not one to dress to impress, he's rather conservative with his clothes; though he loves his worn leather jackets and black jeans, preferring loafers to sneakers when not doing physical exercise. Even when in the saddle he never dresses up and is more than happy to hack around in a pair of worn jeans and a polo shirt.
Markings>> None (though he's sure to have a few scars by the end of his career)
But I’ve gotta let it go
Medical History>> Sprained his ankle while fooling around in the gym one day. All the normal childhood illnesses. Has some complications with the tendon in his thumb, but that's taken care of with cortisone injections.
Criminal History>> Nope
Full History>> Finn is the only child of Emmanuel and Serena of Grayling Michigan. His childhood was as normal as one would expect, day care, nannies, friends, and then at a meeting with associates, Emmanuel was listening to one of the other men talking about how well his son was doing in his gymnastics career. From that moment, the Elder Paquet male decided that his son too would do gymnastics. After that point, the sport took over Finn's life.
As he grew up, Finn resented the fact that his parents would rather shove him into some sport rather than spend time raising him, and the resentful boy started hanging out with the wrong groups when he wasn't in the gym and started looking for a way to release his pent up emotions, and the drugs started.
He didn't normally get invited to his parents business parties, but the babysitter they had employed for that night was held in late at college with an exam so Finn got to get all dressed up and join his parents. When he was travelling in the elevator to meet the girl in the lobby, the power cut out and Finn found himself trapped in the dark with no way to get help. He wasn't sure how long he was stuck in there, but being trapped in the dark left a lasting impression on Finn and since that night he has always slept with a battery-powered night light so that he would never find himself trapped in the dark again.
Shortly after this, and almost failing a drug test for a gymnastics competition, Finn discovered photography and horses, as he was given a very nice digital camera for Christmas from his grandparents - who never knew what to get him anyway - and he went out for a walk. He happened upon a riding stable that wasn't far from where he was staying at the time and was taking photos of the girl riding her horse over a series of jumps.
His parents noticed that their son seemed to be slipping away from them, but rather than trying to fix their fractured relationship, they decided to solve any social problems and looked online for a school to send their son to. The found Blue Ridge Academy and quickly filled the forms out and sent them off, hoping he would be accepted.
We found love in a hopeless place
