charismatic- the kind of guy to punch everyone for a hello, his friends won't miss his presence, he feels comfortable in front of a crowd and dreams to form a band.
high self esteem- he knows his worth
, he isn't easily embarrassed and wouldn't mind carrying public acts that most people would be too shy to perform
aggressive- he inst a hot headed but is also easy on the trigger when it comes to smacking and punching from light and friendly to serious and fights.
touchy- he loves to be physical and doesn't really pay attention to people being shy or their desire for personal space. especially with his friends, his arms will always find their way around their necks.
is quiet and is loud!- he wouldn't voice his opinion for no reason, but his guitar is well heard.
confident- he doesn't care what people think of him, won't shift an opinion for someone else's sake.
slightly rude- he doesn't do it on purpose but words can slip naturally from his mouth, and he wouldn't really care if someone's feelings are hurt, a normal healthy person wouldn't get hurt so quickly anyway.
sloppy- he's the type to wear his pants in sucha sloppy way they might fall on their own. he can't wear a tie properly without effort, it pisses him off.
he often messes with innocent or weak people. simply to relieve boredom or for no reason, just random/
He isn't in touch with his father and sister simply because they don't live in the same house.
his parents don't live together, he was raised by his mother, and his sister by his father.
they are not separated, but were never married in the first place, the parents' relationship is a good one, they mostly comunicate on the phone or internet.
but due to the distance they hardly get to meet; and not enough for the two siblings to really get to know eachother well, and they aren't that bothered by it either.
his mother is overprotective and it clashes with him being extremely independent.
he would often travel alot as a kid without telling his mother. she would call him on the phone and he would ignore it;
she means well but he wanted to be unleashed.
when he was thirteen he bought his first guitar which he paid for himself. he worked for it in anything he could find, and was fascinated by the abilities of this tool.
when he was 16 he formed a band with three good friends;
they were childhood friends he used to always hang out with and make his mother worry; they used to go to rock concerts, and spend time under bridges or on roofs smoking cigarretes when they werent even of age to buy them (16) with a bottle of cheap alcohol that at the end turned into an ashtray. around that time he discovered the world of classical music and began to fuse it with rock.
they had a garage, and it became like an improvized junkyard of appartment, they mostly practiced there, but Raphael loved to come there even without a reason just to be outside of his home , when they grew older, around the age of 17 and
some of them were 18, the differences were obvious
two of them only thought the group as a fun activity no more
while the other two wanted to go for a music career, Raphael and his best friend were aiming for this career. Raphael always thought he was made for it- his friend was so talented in playing and improvizing Raphael was no match for him and always looked up to him and tried to reach his level.
he knew this band wouldn't last forever but in no way could he have guessed the way it ended.
his friend was involved in a car accident; it didn't take long before he deceased in his hospital bed.
during the time he was hospitlized he asked Raphael to play something for him in case the worst happens, something powerful.
also he said "I don't think you knew this, but smoking is bad for your health".
he tried to keep it in good humour but he meant it.
the reason to the accident was him messing with the cigarrete instead of paying enough attention to the sorrounding.
but that was not why he said what he said.
and indeed Raphael ended up playing in his funeral. it was Raphael's favorite song- Mozart's requiem.
and shortly after that he quit smoking too; there was nothing good coming out of it , although it had a social angle to it..
when he's alone he avoids smoking, but among smokers he might be tempted to ask for a smoke.
it's hard to quit, especially when he started so young.
it didn't take long for the band to disband
and the members didn't keep in touch after school ended. each went on his own way.
it was time for Raphael to do what's right for him, he played in some cheap places and city events for either almost no fee or for free to make his way up the ladder. one day a man approached him with academy papers introducing him to Nosh academy, telling him he was "Nosh material" and that was just what Raphael needed. after hearing so many good things about it it he brought the papers with him to the place, it was huge and exciting. he took a music major in order to follow his dream plan, today Raphael is at his second year.
he intends to form a new band by the time he finishes his studies.
