Rox' early youth wasn't really exciting or thrilling; it was plain and uneventful. He was just another boy in the quiet town of Mahogany. He lived a peaceful life with his mother, and father. But little boys don't stay little, just like their ambitions and sense of adventure. And thus at the age of 19 he left the town to follow his dreams! What dreams exactly? Not even Rox knew-- but if you're looking for adventure, the city is the place to go, right?
Right indeed. He traveled to Goldenrod city, looking for excitement in his rather boring life. Excitement ánd a job, that is. A big city has plenty of opportunities and thanks to his will to help others for (nearly) nothing in return, he quickly found a job. A low paying one, but still a job. He worked part time as a hairdresser assistent, spending his days cleaning the shop and selling overpriced hair products. With the money he occasionaly received from home and his newly earnt salary he managed to hire a small appartment, just big enough for one person.
Rox's laid back, yet friendly personality got him rather popular and it didn't took much to make friends. He especially got on very
good terms with the hairdresser, a slightly older Tangela. What started as a boss-employee relationship became a very close friendship, and later even more than that. Two years after Rox got the job, he traded the friendship between the hairdressed and himself in for a relationship.
Things went so well and everything seemed like it couldn't get better. They didn't get better, to say, they only got worse. As an economical crisis hit, they started to get less and less customers. It started to get harder to afford the appartment and in the end Rox had no other choice: he had to find another job. He managed to get a job as a bartender in the late hours of night at a nightclub. Hairdresser's assistent during the day, bartender during the night, it all was very tiring and difficult to keep up with. If there just was something to give you some extra boost during the night...-- There was. Because of the many contacts Rox made in the city, it was easy to get into the ''shady'' business; obtaining drugs was no big deal.
What started as ''just one for tonight'' ended up as an addiction, an addiction that costed a lot too. The money he made as a bartender was quickly spent on more drugs, and later also alcohol. All this took a great toll on Rox, and also on his relationship. Fights became more and more frequent and even violent. On one night after a particulair bad fight, where he had stomped out of the store while shouting the most obscene things, he ended up in the nightclub, this time not as a bartender but a customer. After an awful lot of drinking and just a pill too many, things started to go horribly wrong... He started to hear voices, see things, things that looked like horrifying monsters. He heard screaming people, saw terrifying beings-- he had to defend himself! He grabbed the sharpest things he could see at the moment, a corkscrew, and drove it into the chest of the nearest ''monster'' he could see. After that, everything went black..
The next thing he knew he was in the hospital. Drug overdose,bad trip, murder, charged for murder and drug possession, going to court, prison...
He heard the words but gave them close to no thought. The only thing he cared about was the fact that he screwed up big time, and he wasn't going to be able to make up for them this time. He felt guilty for the things he had said and done to the person he loved, and it would stay like that for many years to come.
As expected, he had lost the case against him and got sentenced many years to prison. The first months? Terribly rough. Withdrawal symptoms are often worse than what they look like on paper. But as months passed, things slowly started to get better, as far as things can get good in prison. He never heard anything from his boyfriend again- and he honestly could understand why, not that it didn't hurt any less, though.
Years had passed without any contact from the outside world when hell broke loose. He was finally set free as the zombies roamed the outside world. It felt like a second chance, as if he was forgiven for all the things he had ever done wrong; and he intended to take that chance.Personality:
