Mark – 22 – Open Ethnicity
Mark is kind, timid, awkward and naive, though occasionally he will stand up for himself. Openly gay now, his sexuality has always been a point of insecurity for him, fueled by his parents’ lack of acceptance. He thinks of Morrison as his best friend and feels lost without his influence. He’s largely unaware of the manipulation Morrison put him through for their entire friendship, but there’s a part of him that has always suspected something was off. He’s afraid to admit Morrison isn’t the person he thought he was.
