Maksym Alexander Gould
<Played by Bacon>
Full Name>> Maksym Alexander Gould
Date of Birth>> 11/2/1975
Staff or Student>> Staff English Literature and Language Arts Teacher
House>> Brown Ribbon Apartments
Face Claim>> Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Personality>> The first thing to notice about Maks is that he is family oriented. His son and daughter are the focal points of his entire life. If they're not happy, he's not happy. They are generally his first and only priority. With this, he can become extremely protective of his daughter. Maks also spoils his daughter beyond belief, giving her nearly anything she would ever want. Aside from giving her everything she wants, he is also there for her whenever she needs it, and at every meet. As for Wesley, he tries his best to connect and be there for him, but they have a starkly different view on the world.
Maks is an opinionated man, and makes it well known to many. He is not afraid to point out the flaws in a system or society and feel the repercussions of that. This helps support his passion for teaching English, as so much is still under discussion. His dedication to the English language often helps out the students, as he spends as much time as possible in the classroom, making himself available. Mose of the time he spends in the classroom after class if for his students to reach out to him and ask for help.
Outside of the classroom, he is rather outgoing and kind. He tries to take into the consideration of others around him but, if he gets going too quickly, he can get slightly loud and obnoxious. Maks doesn't mind being the one to strike up a conversation.
Dislikes>> People who go with the flow
Those who are disrespectful
Fears>> Eira and Wesely won't grow up well or happily
His children getting hurt
Hopes>> Eira and Wes will be successful and happy
He'll actually get through to his students
Make a difference somewhere
Secrets>> Maks feels absolutely no remorse for the separation between him and his ex-wife
Appearance>> Maksym is generally a smart looking man when it comes to work. He wears dress pants and a dress shirt while working and, more often than not, he wears simple, tasteful tee shirts and khaki shorts. Depending on what mood he is in, Maks can get a little lazy with his clothes and just throw on whatever he feels like mustering up enough energy for.
He enjoys his height, standing at a solid six foot, as it allows his to look over most people, but not tower over them in an intimidating fashion. His beard sometimes can get a little stubbly, again depending on his mood, but also the season. The Englishman has dark brown hair that he keeps cropped quite short and light blue eyes that contrast nicely.
Markings>> Has tattoos of both Eira and Wesley's names over his heart, and Wila's name on his shoulderblade
Medical History>> Broken nose, leg, arm, and every other sprain possible
Full History>> Growing up in England, Maks was graced with a childhood full of freedom and shenanigans. He and his older siblings used to terrorize their parents with constant injuries, fighting, and causing trouble throughout the county. His mother, a teacher herself, was determined to get them out of the farmlands and to somewhere where they could make a life for themselves and never have to worry about their financial status again.
Around the age of fourteen, his parents were able to get their kids out of England and to America, supporting them with their own teaching jobs. Maks had a fairly uneventful high school life after that. He dealt with the usually traumas, such as deaths, bullying, and embarrassment, with as much courage as capable. It wasn't until after he graduated high school that his life began to change.
He married a woman he met in college not long after meeting her, mostly on a whim. They were in love, but the whirlwind romance was nothing compared to a life together. While in college, just over a year after he married and only months after the birth of their son, he discovered that his wife wasn't entirely faithful to him. Despite trying to work it out, their relationship began to dwindle further. As they nearly hit rock bottom, a new development unfolded; his wife was pregnant again. A baby truly did save their marriage... for a while.
After the awe of children began to fade, old issues that were never solved resurfaced. Again, they tried to rekindle their relationship, but this time it failed. They settled on one divorce in which they shared their kids, and were civil with each other.
Due to an improperly managed account, his school where he taught was forced to make cuts, and instead of angering those in support of the arts, they cut the education. Maks was forced to relocate, and brought his children with him to Blue Ridge.
Pet Name>> Lysander
Registered Name>> Lysander
Registry>> Labrador Retriever Club
Personality>> Lysander is a typical Lab, happy as can be, and as loyal as they come. He is a bit of a pest as well, having the unfortunate common young lab trait of tearing everything up when he is left alone. That's how he has ended up having to spend most of his alone time in a crate. Otherwise, he is a smart and loyal thing that loves his family dearly and is always underfoot.
History>> Lysander was just a little shelter pup, born there after his mother was brought in. After all the formalities were done and he was weaned from his mother, he was quickly adopted by Maks as a gift to his children. Although the intentions were there, the dog bonded with Maks far more than he did with the kids.
