The Colony was established when a devastating virus hit, killing most of the population in the United States. A survivors colony was established in the mountains of Maryland, housing a small amount of people. The people living in the Colony have escaped from all over the United States, all hoping to survive and not be killed by the virus. When they came to the Colony they would have never imagined it was as strict as it was. There are armed guards that walk all over the camp and punishments are handed out like candy.
Many of the survivors wish they would have never left their home. If you thought you were going to have a fun time or a vacation, think again. This Colony is ran on filth, lies and power seekers. Welcome and have a great stay!

Delia Redmann/18/The Underage Ward
Location Traveled From: Mesa, Arizona.
FC: Mia Wasikowska
Delia is one of the more quiet girls in the Ward; she keeps to herself and avoids confrontation. Delia came from a very normal home, nothing out of the ordinary. Her parents got along, hardly ever fought. She was a straight ‘A’ student with a blemish free disciplinary record. Delia loved to read and participate in her school’s theater program. She absolutely flourished on stage; it was a transformation unlike any other. In school she quiet like a church mouse, her head always stuck in a book or studying. When her feet hit the stage, she was like a whole different person. Whatever insecurities she felt in regular life went away while she was on stage. Her parents were absolutely proud of their perfect daughter. They showed her off whenever they could get the chance. She was the apple of their eye and could do nothing wrong. When Delia was six years old, her older brother passed away. He was fifteen at the time and died in a car accident while their family was on vacation. It was normal day, just like any other. They were heading out to eat at a fancy restaurant that was located approximately one mile from their hotel. Everyone wanted to walk, but little Delia cried and pleaded for them to take the car. She was dressed up like her favorite Disney princess and her princess heels would hurt her feet if she walked that far. After a big temper tantrum, her parents finally agreed to take the car. As they were turning into the restaurant, their car began to stall. At first they didn’t worry but when they noticed the tractor trailer headed for Delia’s side of the car, panic set in. Her older brother unbuckled his seatbelt and threw himself over Delia. The doctors said that if it wasn’t for him, Delia wouldn’t have made it. Ever since then Delia has felt a need to prove to her parents that she is happy to be alive. Her brother saved her life, and in turn she promised she would never take that for granite.
When the virus hit Mesa, Delia was on a school field trip to DC. It was the trip of the year, and it had been planned for years in advance. They were visiting all of the political landmarks and taking note of important dates and monuments. When the TV broke the news that they were attempting an underground evacuation of the city, all hell broke loose. People were dying left and right and no one was following directions. Delia was the only one in her class to actually listen to the directions which said to go to the designated underground safe chamber. When she arrived there, no one else was around. The instructions said to close and lock the door upon entry, so she did. As she traveled further in to the tunnels, she noticed that there were many bunkers and places for food and water along the way. The journey in the tunnel was a lonely one, only seeing a few people along the way who kept waving her along. She thought that the city of DC must have prepared for this simply because of the political upstanding of the city. The journey in the tunnels took two weeks (walking days, sleeping nights) but the tunnel led right out to the entrance to the Colony. When she arrived at the gates, the guards took her in and immediately assigned her to the Underage Ward. She was very surprised at how truly militarily ran the camp was. Everything was rationed out perfectly; the clothes for the kids looked all the same. It came as a shock to her when she found out that there was no program for the arts.
Delia is quiet, and likes to stay out of things. She doesn’t stir up trouble and hates that the girls in her wing of the Ward have such a bad reputation. The fact that the girls who are in her room are always getting in trouble and stealing stuff sets her on edge. Delia doesn’t understand why they can’t just go along with things. She prides herself on not ever getting in trouble with the Roundup Gang. She follows the rule, and leaves them alone so in turn they leave her alone. The only thing that nags in Delia’s mind is her parents. Delia lost her cell phone in the shuffle at the zoo and wasn’t able to call them. When she went underground, all telephone use by common folk was prohibited so she wasn’t able to make contact with them. She isn’t sure if they are alive or dead. None of the people in the camp will tell her if they are on the alive or dead list. It’s the one thing that might end up getting her in trouble; snooping. Some nights she sneaks out of her bunk and tries to find a way to break into the records building. Delia hasn’t gotten caught yet, but if she doesn’t watch her back she might be seeing the Roundup Gang before she knows it.

Noah Walker/22/The Upper Side
Member of the ‘Roundup Gang’
Location Traveled From: Virginia Beach, Virginia.
FC: Max Irons
Noah had the dream life back in his Virginia Beach Home. Lots of money, lots of alcohol and lots of girls. His mother and father gave him everything he ever asked for. He didn’t get to see much of his family though, because he went to boarding school since Pre-K. Every year he was sent off to live in a dorm with a bunch of other boys. Some of which were in the same situation as him. His parents were very wealthy, and didn’t want children. When his mother got pregnant with Noah, she was devastated. Diapers, pacifiers and throw-up were not a part of the glamorous lifestyle her and her husband had planned. They thought perhaps adoption was the best way to go, but didn’t want him to be raised in a poor area. Both decided they would raise the child, but still wanted to obtain their dreams of traveling around the world. They say giving birth and seeing your child for the first time is like falling in love all over again, but for Noah’s mother this wasn’t true. She handed the baby to the nurse and fell asleep. For the first four years of his life, Noah was raised by live-in nannies. They tucked him in at night, cleaned the house and acted as a mother figure. When he turned five years old his parents found a high end boarding school and sent him to live there. All his life Noah was afforded everything he could ever want. With one phone call he had the world at his fingertips, but there was always one thing that was missing. His parents. Over all of his years living at the boarding school, he received one letter from them. It was a letter saying he would have to spend Christmas Break at school, but his present would be there. Growing up, boys always picture their parents as super heros. But Hunter never had any of that. When he got scared of the dark when he was eight, it was the house mother that was called when he wouldn’t go back to sleep. When he had the stomach flu, he spent two nights in the nurses’ station instead of being soothed by his mom or dad. He wanted his parents love more than anything their money could buy.
The virus hit his school very slowly, for months they lived in peace behind the locked doors of their establishment. But one day when a younger student climbed out his window, got infected and crawled back in, it spread quickly. First it hit the younger students, then the middle aged kids and finally the high school aged kids. When the virus took Noah’s best friend since Pre-K, Mason…he knew he had to leave. He couldn’t bare to sit around and wait for it to take him to. When he was researching where to go, the Colony was the first name that left the mouths of people who were planning on leaving as well. Noah made the trek up to the Colony and was happy to be alive. He knew life in the Colony wasn’t going to be fun or even slightly enjoyable but he did know that he was going to make something of himself. There was no way he was going to live a less then adequate lifestyle in the Colony. The only way thought would let him have a good way of living was if he went searching for the power. Noah lived in the Underage Ward until he was 22, and moved out on his twenty second birthday.
Life in the Colony for Noah now isn’t all that bad. He is quite content with living where he is. He has a nice house, and can buy whatever he wants. All his job consists of is being a part of what it known in the Underage Ward as ‘The Roundup Gang’. It’s a street name for the gang that is in charge bringing those kids to Hunter who get in trouble. He loves that he has a bit of power in the Colony, and wears it as a badge of honor. When he is given a task, he does it to the best of his ability. He is known around the Colony for being a bit of a womanizer. He is always flirting with women and trying to get their attention. Because of his place of power, girls always seem to flock to him. Life for Hunter in the Colony isn’t much different than it was outside. Lots of money, lots of women and partying when the option comes up. Hunter misses his parents in a way that most of the kids of the Colony don’t understand. They had parents that they went home to after school. People to tuck them in at night and walk them to school. Hunters parents were absent his entire life, he still misses his parents a bit, but he tries to hide that as much as he can. It’s not hard to recognize that he never had a true parental figure in his life, just by the way he acts.
I’m off for the night! But leave any FC requests or questions in the inbox.
Kit Bronwyn/15/The Underage Ward
Location Traveled From: New York City, New York.
FC: Elle Fanning
Growing up as an orphan prepared Kit for life in the Colony. She learned to fend for herself and trust very few people. The one the person she trusts unconditionally is her best friend Briar. If it came down to it she knows Briar has her back in life and death. The two have been together since they were dropped on the steps of the Orphanage and they don’t intend to separate anytime soon. Kit despite her angelic looks is not a person to be messed with. The Bronx isn’t a place that treats kindly those who don’t know how it operates. Kit learned quickly how to avoid getting in trouble and where to avoid if she didn’t want to get jumped. By the age of six she knew how to rob a grocery store and provide food for both herself and Briar. Kit often was the one out of the two of them to get caught, but it didn’t matter to her. If she was successfully getting food and clothes for the both of them, she didn’t care. Despite not having what one would call a ‘normal’ upbringing, Kit loved her life. She loved waking up to the sounds that New York City made every day. She loved that no matter what time it was if she wanted to, she catch a cab down to Chinatown and there was people everywhere. The thought of having an actual family was one that plagued her mind only when she was young. When she turned twelve she knew she would never get adopted and her true family was the kids in the Orphanage she had grown up in. In her eyes family didn’t mean you had two parents and siblings it meant those people who were there for you unconditionally. Kit is always looking for a way out of the Colony, and is determined to get back to the place she called home- even if it’s drastically different from when she left.
It wasn’t exactly Kit’s idea to leave the Bronx, but she knew for the time being that it had to happen. The area wasn’t safe and people were getting infected and dying every day. Briar told her people were talking about a survivors camp located in Maryland and their fate was sealed. Kit wasn’t sure when the two girls were going to leave but it all became very clear that they had to leave soon. With the caretaker being deceased and all of the children running wild and getting sick, Kit woke Briar up in the middle of the night after a scary incident that shook her from her sleep. The two girls were fast asleep when Kit heard a rumbling coming from the bedroom next to theirs. She slowly got out of bed and peeped into the next room. The three girls that lived in that room were sick on the bed, screaming and thrashing. It scared Kit out of her skin and she woke Briar up immediately and the girls left the building fifteen minutes later. Saying goodbye to the one place you’ve lived your entire life isn’t easy and sometimes Kit still gets upset about it. Going back to the Bronx is a dream that she thinks about all of the time. Kit just like her best friend Briar, has problems with authority. This lands her in trouble all the time with Hunter. She knows he is well aware that she is constantly trying to find ways to escape with Briar and Cecily and it lands her in trouble all the time. Her free time at the Colony is often spent on the outskirts where she goes swimming in the pond and reading books. Kit loves reading and writing and the journal she hides in the boards beneath her bed has documented every day since she left home. Dreams of publishing a book seemed dashed but a part of her still wants to do it. Escaping means her dreams are still alive. Because living in the colony you don’t have the option to be an author, you are assigned a boring job that will stick with you for the rest of your life.
Although Kit hates living in the colony, life in the Underage Ward isn’t much different from life at the Orphanage. You live in the same room as girls who are around your age, you’re exposed to a lot of different people and Kit loves it. She tries to be as friendly as Briar but often finds herself closing off to people. When she left home she left the only people she’s ever considered family. The only way to shield yourself from hurt is to not get close to people. The only people Kit doesn’t enjoy living with are Piper Oldfield and Avery Armstrong. The two girls are loud and obnoxious and take great pleasure in getting Kit and Briar in trouble. This drives Kit insane because where she is from, if you rat on somebody you get put in a bad place.
Friends: Nyla West, Cecily Valentine
Enemies: Piper Oldfield, Avery Armstrong
