Gladys Amy Madoc
<Played by Jay>
Full Name>> Gladys Amy Madoc
Date of Birth>> 09/22/2002
Staff or Student>> Student
House>> Green Ribbon House
Face Claim>> Ariel Winter
Personality>> Outwardly, Gladys is a friendly, cheerful and confident girl, who has her whole life worked out and knows exactly what to do. If ever asked, she will be able to reel off a whole list of courses and universities which she intends to attend but, if one pays attention, it might be noticed that the list will be different every time, because Gladys might appear to know what she's doing but, in actuality, she's fumbling her way through it, just like everyone else. While she has an agreement as to where she will find employment when she's an adult, it's the bit between now and then that she struggles with. She lacks confidence in herself and her personality and, to make up for this, she does her best to appear totally confident about everything.
Hopes>> To be incredibly popular
To work out what the hell she wants to do with herself
Secrets>> She's insecure about her looks and her personality.
Appearance>> Gladys has long, dark hair, which comes so far down her back that she frequently sits on it, much to her own shock every time. Her eyes are a deep chocolate brown and her lashes are long and dark. She is not particularly slim but neither is she fat; she occupies a comfortable middle ground, and has been described as statuesque. She keeps her nails short and if there is ever any polish on them, it will invariably be in the process of peeling off. However, she does take rather more care of her face, applying makeup judiciously every morning.
Medical History>> Measles aged 2
Full History>> Gladys was born in a tiny village in Wales, a few miles outside Cardiff. Her father was the owner of a small bed and breakfast, the settlement not being large enough to support a hotel; he did the cooking and the cleaning, while her mother did the accounts and ran the reception. So Gladys grew up in a constantly changing environment where the people who were around one day would almost certainly not be there the next, and so it was not perhaps as much of a shock to her as it might have been when her parents split up. She was eight at the time, and still remembers the arguments that often went on long into the night, in voices slightly lowered so as not to disturb their guests.
Eventually, her mother left, and Gladys more or less took over from her, making bookings, working through figures and mopping floors. In the time which she had free, however, she often went over to the field behind their building where there were two or three horses. The owner of the horses, who ran a nearby riding school, spotted her there one day, and asked her whether she'd like to try riding them. Gladys jumped at the chance- literally- and never looked back. Her father couldn't really afford to pay for her riding lessons, so she worked in the stables to pay for them herself, mucking out, grooming and leading inexperienced riders. In later years, she even started to teach some of the more basic lessons. Finally, the owner of the school made Gladys a proposition. He would pay for her to attend a specialist riding school which he knew of, on condition that she came back to work for him when she was older. Gladys quickly agreed, and though her father took some persuading, he eventually gave in.
