ROMEO VU DUY BINH
PLAYED BY MOCHI // SHE/THEY // EMPYREA, TRISTAN
1 shot warmth
3 ounces heart
1 heaping tablespoon of sociability
2 drops uncertainty (indecision flavoured; do not substitute with insecurity)
1/2 teaspoon of bitterness
twist of zesty charm, to taste
result: one lost boy of indeterminable strength.
serves: loyalties or obligations. may not be enough for both.
★ works at the bean cafe. he started working there two summers ago, first as a busboy and now as a barista. you can find him working the late evening shift most weekdays, and the brunch shift on weekends. work has become a defining part of him/his reputation while he figures out who exactly he is.
★ is a second gen vietnamese american, eldest of four children in the vu family. romeo and two siblings are currently in ridgeview, while the youngest has yet to reach high school age. ma is a middle school history teacher and ba is a dentist, with his own clinic downtown.
★ his parents are divorced, and have been for over ten years now. the children stay with their mum in the suburbs but, as their dad lives in an apartment not too far away, they see plenty of him as well. things are awkward between his parents, but at the very least, he would not describe them as hostile.
★ romeo has a lot of potted plants in his room, but his favourite is a fern he named francine. he talks to it often, much in the way one might speak in a vlog or write in a diary. he considers francine to be his 'confidant'. this doesn't really attest to his level of trust in people; he trusts people just fine. he just trusts plants more.
★ has found himself sitting on the fringes, as it were, mostly due to his ability to get-along-but-not-quite with the popular crowd. he doesn't care about popularity so much as he cares about blending in. as a result, he sometimes remains a bystander in harmful situations, and only risks sticking up for people he really cares for.
★ is kind and warm around strangers, despite that. he likes having company, and can be somewhat charming and charismatic on occasion. however, he doesn't form strong bonds with others easily, and tends to have more acquaintances than actual friends.
★ has quite a fair amount of experience in dance, having learned ballet for about twelve years now, as well as jazz/modern dance for seven, and hip-hop/some other contemporary styles since the start of high school. while he has a passion for both dance and choreography, he has little interest in pursuing it as a career after high school.
★ academically disinclined. in other words, kind of dumb. only barely passed his subjects the year before. will likely start off the school year failing half his classes. also sometimes lacks common sense. thank god he's pretty, at least.
★ as a kid, he often adopted different "personas" throughout his school years. sometimes, he was the quiet one. maybe the next week he'd be the class clown. perhaps, if he was feeling it, he'd be the teacher's pet one semester and a troublemaker the next. he never "stuck" to anything, because none of it felt real. these days, his tendency to manifest himself as different people has taken on new meaning after joining the drama club.
★ he's still testing out a lot of his interests and goals, though these days with a sense of urgency, given that he'll be facing graduation after the next school year. he's terrified of making the "wrong" choices and locking himself out of things, even if it's a bit of an overthought concern.
POSITIVES loyal, pragmatic, disciplined, resilient, forthright NEGATIVES reticent, self-critical, indecisive, guarded, impatient QUIRKS has an incredibly eclectic music taste. loves his houseplants to death; holds a particular fondness for ferns and succulents. forgets names and faces a lot, but tries. makes amazing spring rolls and pancakes. also whips up pretty great coffee.
i miss missing you now and then
