Introducing Platt, Myrick, and Cameron

I got a request to do an introduction post for these three, which I had already been thinking of doing myself, so I figured now was as good a time as any.ย  ๐Ÿ˜ย I’ll try to add clothing styles for them at a later date.

picture of Platt Bradley Christopher Plattย  was born June 7th, 1997 on a US Navy base in Spain. He is an only child. When he was nine, his father, a SEAL, was killed in action. Platt and his mother then moved to a small town in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley to live near his paternal uncle. His mother soon became addicted to alcohol, and his uncle was abusive. As a result, Platt isolated himself socially from his peers, although he was an Eagle Scout and active member of his church. He loves kung fu movies and studying samurai. His lifelong dream is to become a SEAL like his dad. He is touchy, determined, principled, and inhibited. He got accepted to USNA in the same class as Zain and was his roommate for their Plebe Summer.

Brian Alexander Myrick (pictured with Cameron) was born October 21st, 1992 in Jefferson City, Missouri. He has one older sister. He attended a military boarding school from ninth through twelfth grades and started USNA at age twenty. He once taught judo, and he enjoys playing pool. His skills include lock-picking and writing in shorthand, but his social skills could use some work. He is an Electrical Engineering major who will be taking a two-year civilian scholarship at Johns Hopkins before he enters the service. The best words to describe him are controlled, righteous, and “still waters run deep.” He rarely lets emotions show, except to those who know him well.

photo of CameronJustine Mae Cameron was born premature, on November 8th, 1993, in Charleston, South Carolina. She grew up in the Charleston suburbs with her two brothers (she is the middle child), and was doted on by her family, leading her to be somewhat spoiled and always demand the best, though this is tempered by her good heart. She took an interest in both medicine and the military from a young age and decided to become a Navy physician. She constantly has to prove herself in defiance of stereotypes about pretty blonde girls from the South. She enjoys a good fight but tries to show compassion to those who deserve it. With a sharp sense of humor, she likes to relax and let her guard down when she’s off-duty.

    1. Really? That fascinates me! I don’t describe my characters’ race or ethnicity unless it’s vital to understanding the story, so I always wonder if readers see them the same way I do. I’ve had this exact image picked out for Myrick almost since I introduced him in Plebe Summer, but feel absolutely free to keep picturing him as black. I don’t mind one bit.

  1. Having Platt a year older than me made me feel like a bad adult ๐Ÿ˜‚ I always thought of Cameron with dark hair, not sure why though, no doubt Iโ€™ve read that sheโ€™s blonde but the image just stuck

    1. Aww, don’t feel like a bad adult, Shiobob. You’re just a little baby still compared to me and lord knows I do not have my crap together, haha.

      Yes, Myrick’s type is definitely blue-eyed blondes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I haven’t imagined Brian like that at all I saw him as an older man and I don’t really know why and less sexier ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    although I am really happy you introduced them I have been waiting for that for too long

    1. LOL, another long-time reader thought Myrick was older at first too. I think it’s because he’s so much more serious than any of my other young characters?

      I’ve never “introduced” characters so long after I started posted stories of them. It’s so interesting this way, how they contradict some images people have had. I love it!
