OUT OF CHARACTER
TIMEZONE: Saskatchewan Time (CST or MST depending on DST)
NAME: Tyler Lockwood
PLAYED BY: Michael Trevino
FANDOM: The Vampire Diaries
CANON POINT: 6x22
CAN THIS CHARACTER BE CANON PUNCTURED? No.
WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS WITH THIS CHARACTER IN GAME? I'm really looking forward to taking him from a massive dick who shirks responsibilities to a jerk with a heart of gold who steps up to the plate and stands up for others even against his friends. And the fun I can have from taking him from a human, to a werewolf, to a hybrid, back to a human, and then a werewolf again and exploring how that goes. And I'd love for him to meet some other werewolves.
CANON HISTORY: Have a Wiki
IN GAME HISTORY: Tyler was born to Richard and Carol Lockwood in Huntington Beach. His parents were quite wealthy, his father a politician.
Home life wasn't easy for Tyler. His father refused to accept anything less than perfection from Tyler, and when Tyler didn't meet his father's high expectations (which was often), his father took it out on him in the form of verbal and physical abuse. The only times Tyler was happy at home was when his uncle Mason, his father's younger brother, would come to visit.
Because of his father's abuse, Tyler had a lot of anger issues. He tried to curb his aggression by playing on three varsity sports teams in high school (wrestling, basketball, and football) though it did little to help alleviate his aggression. He tried to avoid fighting in high school, as it wasn't something his father tolerated, he wasn't always successful. In high school, he turned to his friend Bonnie to talk him out of fighting, though he told none of his friends how things were at home.
He also had somewhat of a fling with Caroline, losing his virginity to her and sleeping with her now and again throughout school. He developed feelings for Caroline. He knew she didn't return them, so he never brought them up, though knowing he would never have her gave him something else to become aggressive about.
He graduated high school with fairly high grades, and was accepted to Duke. He played on the Duke football team for a couple of years. In university, the combination of no longer being a big fish in a little pond and no longer being under his father's influence helped mellow him out a little bit. He was still angry a lot of the time without explanation, but he was able to better handle it. At least until his second year at Duke, when he got into a fight with one of his teammates over a girl. He was kicked off the football team, and after the incident, his father refused to continue to pay for University unless Tyler moved back home where he could be kept under a more strict watch. Tyler has transferred to UCI for the winter semester, and has joined the UCI football team.
IN THE MEANTIME Tyler spent some time at UCI, where he graduated with a degree in kinesiology. He started dating Blossom, and other stuff happened that I've logged out in the community before.
After dreaming of his death and his subsequent transformation to a werewolf-vampire hybrid, Tyler realized he had to go to get his head on straight. He went to the Rocky mountains where he lived in seclusion for some time, learning to control his vampire instincts by preying on hikers and hunters (snatch and erase) and coming to terms with his death. Now, he is ready to return.
Tyler was drunk, though he was in good company. What his football team had thought would be an easy win had ended up a brutal loss, and he and a few of the others from the team had decided to drown their sorrows in the bottom of a pint glass. He was shooting some pool with the quarterback. At least with the way the game was going, Tyler would have at least one win tonight.
He was lining up his shot when he felt a hand on his shoulder, and he shot a look to the guy who had grabbed him. Tyler recognized him as a running back on the team, Jason, and from the look in Jason's eyes, he wasn't there to make small talk.
"Do you mind, bro?" Tyler asked, jerking his shoulder from Jason's hand.
"Yeah, actually, I do," Jason snapped. "I hear you've been fooling around with my girl."
Tyler straightened up at the words, and shot Jason a cocky smile. "Hey man, she came on to me. I was just giving her what she wanted."
Despite his words, Tyler wasn't looking for a fight. Especially not with someone on his own team. But the words were barely out of his mouth before Jason swung at him, connecting solidly with Tyler's jaw. Tyler was vaguely aware of a couple of other people in the bar letting out exclamations, but the second Jason hit him, all Tyler saw was red. He swung the pool cue, breaking it across Jason's ribs and Jason went down. Tyler was on top of him immediately, throwing punches. It took two of his teammates to drag him off of his fallen former friend, and they held him back until Tyler stopped trying to lunge at Jason.
"Let go of me," Tyler growled, shoving them off of him. He turned and stalked out of the bar, and once in the parking lot, he ran both his hands through his hair, already regretting his choice to fight back - though at the time it hadn't seemed like much of a choice. This was going to get back to the coach, he was sure, and Tyler would no doubt be kicked off the team. And if that happened, there was no way that it wasn't getting back to his father. What the hell was wrong with him?
