Gilbert Zhao AKA G Mann AKA G Age
15Place of Residence
306 Courtland StreetPersonality Traits
G Mann loves getting peoples attention. He's a joker, a storyteller, a flirt and an artist. The name G Mann is tagged all over Everbrook. In weird places. Hard to reach places. Places that there is no real access to. When,it comes to tagging, drawing, painting, G Mann loves a challenge. In fact, Art might just be the only thing he takes seriously. It's certainly the only class he does well in. Family History/Backstory
He's also got his dad's anger issues, and is quick to stand up and get tough over any perceived insult or threat. He doesn't really pick fights though. He's just a little too ready to believe that the other guy wants to pick a fight with him. The funny thing is when people actually try to get a rise out of him, he can usually see right through it and keep his cool.
Trust is not something he gives out too freely. G might go along with you. That doesn't mean he isn't keeping an eye on you. It's becuase he doesn't trust people that he always carries a weapon on him. Just a knife for now. But his dad's guns are still in the house.
Shen Zhao lived at 306 Courtland Street since before his son Gilbert was born. Shen Zhao is in prison on multiple drug trafficking charges now. His wife, Mei, is Gilbert's stepmother. His real mother left when he was very young. His father never went into detail about what happened and Gilbert figures he's probably better off not knowing. Other Info
He grew up around crime, guns, drugs, chaos, violence and madness. He heard more explicit language in his house by the time he was five than any R-rated movie or rap album could ever aspire to have. As far a G is concerned blood doesn't really make family, though.
But things have been pretty peaceful since his dad went to jail four years ago. His step mom started pretending to be a decent respectable lady. At least more than she used to when her husband was around. But she doesn't really pay much attention to what G Mann does at home or at school. She just gets high and hangs out with her girls all the time.
Every time he gets home it's Mei and co. laughing at something on TV in the middle of a cloud of marijuana smoke. Usually Kiki, Ella, Jionna, and Dawn. But sometimes the roster changes.
He gets around town on his skateboard that he doesn't know any tricks for. He always has weed on him. And he is amazingly skilled at not letting people get close to him. And yet still being very social. He has some mental battle scars but he isn't about to let anybody see that. His dad used to say "it's ok to bleed, but never let these sharks smell it."
G has a the same summer job lined up that he had last year: Selling cheap weed to Everbrook Circle kids at a ridiculously high mark up. They fall for it every time. Just like another thing his dad used to say "All you gotta do is put a high price tag on your product, and most of these fools will just automatically assume it's top quality."
His real ambition for the summer is to tag a couple of wrap around murals on on the chimneys on the roof of the public library building. But that's going to take some planning. And some finesse. And some plain luck.
