: Alexis 'Lexi' Mitchell
Straight, mid-long, bright pink/red hair & big round brown eyes. Nose piercing, snake bites, and ear lobe stretchers. Wears braces, loves eye makeup. Small-average build, average height.
Lexi is easily influenced, clumsy, flaky, and has low self-esteem. On the other hand, Lexi's a fun-loving girl who would do anything to help her friends if they needed it, often putting others before herself.
Lexi's twin brother, James, had 'dated' Darlene only a few weeks a little while ago... if you could even call it dating. Lexi really didn't know the stipulations of their relationship, other than that Darlene had been in James's bedroom on more than one occasion. Other than that, she only knew Darlene through what other people, including her friend Infri, had to say about her. Lexi lived in the suburbs with her brother and her mother, as her parents were divorced. She also has a pet ferret that she loves named Hermione, after the Harry Potter character. Lexi smoked a lot
of pot, which she had started doing as an attempt to look 'cooler', but had grown quite fond of the habit. Before high school, she had been incredibly nerdy, and was still trying to shed that image. She's part of the outsider clique.
: James Mitchell
Short, messy blond hair and blue eyes. Muscular build and fairly tall. Quite handsome, in a typical American jock way.
James is a loud mouth who isn't afraid to tell it like it is. He figures that if people don't like him, that's their prerogative. He's got enough friends that he doesn't give a sh*t what those 'losers'
think anyway. He tends to treat those who aren't popular, like the jocks and the cheerleaders, like they aren't worthy of his presence. Like most jocks, he's over-confident, and loves it when women stroke his ego. He is a lot smarter than people give him credit for.
James is Lexi's twin brother. He wouldn't really say he was dating Darlene, as he saw it as a 'friends with benefits' situation. Unbeknownst to Lexi, his relationship with Darlene didn't end, they just stopped going over to his house to fool around. He knew she had a boyfriend, but he didn't really care. If her boyfriend wasn't satisfying her, that wasn't his problem. James plays on the school rugby team (which happens to have quite an ongoing feud with the gridiron football team) and identifies as a jock. He hates his sister's friends and think she's wasting her time hanging out with that crowd.
James also happened to be at Darlene's locker. He missed Darlene as well, because unlike most of her lovers, James and Darlene had been good friends. He ran a hand through his hair, "I hope so. She was a hot, popular, blonde white head cheerleader. You think they'd focus a little more on her murder than they would if she were some loser, but they don't seem to be working too hard."
Lexi's locker was straight down the hall from Darlene's. She had a mirror on the inside of her locker door, and she was watching them in it. She didn't want to risk turning around and having them yell at her like they had a couple other times, when Darlene and the other cheerleaders had caught her staring and told her to "Take a picture," or "Stop staring, loser."
She said to Infri, "I'm surprised they don't have a full on shrine to Darlene's memory in front of that locker... God, that glittery nail polish sh*t is so tacky."
