Brody McAdams

A slightly hyperactive teenager from South Carolina, Brody is the protagonist from his own canon, a short story entitled Basically Jesus. He's a 15-year-old boy afflicted with stigmata. He's a sophomore in high school, and is 100% plain-ass human. His parents have placed strict rules on him (such as not being able to watch TV, use the Internet, or listen to the radio), which he breaks when he's out of their control, and appreciates how liberating being in the Nexus can be, where no one cares if he's goth or gay or apparently Jesus.

Despite looking like a Hot Topic vomited on him, Brody is friendly, approachable, and probably a little crazy, but in a good way. He tries not to be pretentious and acknowledges that he really doesn't know what he's doing or who he is at this point in his life; he'll try anything once, just to see if he likes it.

Fictional Character Biography

Brody was born in 1992, which makes him 15 as his canon is set in 2007. At the age of nine he developed debilitating migraines that made school difficult and eventually prompted the involvement of child protective services, who believed he was being abused; shortly after the investigation ended his family moved. At twelve he started spontaneously bleeding from the hands, feet, and sides. No medical cause was ever found for this and the bleeding wasn't triggered by any physical injury, so it was declared a miracle by the church. He attained a mild level of fame, to his dismay: he didn't exactly want to be famous for being Creepy Jesus Boy.

At 14, in his first year of high school, he went goth, and started getting involved with other boys. His parents caught him and sent him to an ex-gay camp. The experience was so traumatizing for him that he has as of yet refused to talk about it.
