Dyllan's a nice enough guy and certainly never makes trouble for anyone, but he's cripplingly shy. He's an only child. His mother's a doctor, his father's a drunk. After their messy divorce he went to live with his mother who is ridiculously over-protective, but also not around much. He's never really had a social life and mostly just reads books or plays on the computer.
School is hell for him. He doesn't quite understand what makes bullies pick on him. He's tried apologizing for whatever he did to upset them and they laughed at him. He offered his lunch money for them to leave him alone, they took it and hassled him anyway. But his mom, usually overprotective and never letting him go out of the house, insists that school is a safe place and that he's exaggerating things.
There we go, not an artsy student after all (we seemed to have a few too many of them).
