Biography: John was born on July 17th, 1990 to Vanessa and Maxwell Matthews. He grew up a normal life, playing sports with his father and getting read to by his mother every night. When he was 10 his father died of Cancer, spending three weaks in the hospital he died suddenly in his sleep. It was all too much for Vanessa to take but she pressed on.
John's mother remarried to a man named Andrew McGowl, he was normal enough but had a terrible temper. They lived together for two years, and for a long time it seems liked everything was going to go back to normal. But one day, two years before John showed up at Bathurst, his Step-Father got so angry he injured his mother. She lived but remained in the hospital for a few months. Another month later they filed for divorce, which took a long and brutal year and a half to endure. Without enough money for them both John's mother sent him to live with his aunt.
His aunt, Joanna, was a cop for the town in which Bathurst was located, so she was well respected in the community. She taught him how to defend himself and what he needs to do to protect those around him. Sadly he has his own anger management problems and a fear of blood. Today he regularily goes to a therapist to try and work out these problems, but nothing has come to fruition yet.
When John started at his new school he was a loner, but as he went along he became quite popular. He joined the student council and became captain of the Basket Ball team. John doesn't really fit into many of the cliques around school but still remains popular and friendly to everyone. Today he manages to keep a close friendship with a lot of people within the school, he hopes to become a Police Officer when he gets out into the real world.

Conclusions: Anger Management? Without pills?! But, that fear of blood thing messes things up...well let's just hope B26 doesn't end up being fodder for someone BEFORE he loses his pills...if he does, well what a waste of potential.
