Gender: Any
Ethnicity: Black/African Descent, Asian, or Ambiguous/Multiracial

Young, and feels like they have to prove a lot, seeks attention from friends and family, but has to get hurt to get support. Doesn’t
feel confident in anything they do. Unathletic, slow, not as smart as peers.

Role: Young Jilei
Age: 8-12

Messy, wild kid. Jilei looks like a happy kid that can sometimes be mean, he does well in school, sports, friendships, everything looks like it is going well in his life. Under this guise, his family life is unstable and hurting him internally.
