MC

Ethnicity:

WHITE

Coming from a family in which he was the only child and his parents were working long hours in their different jobs, Reuben found himself on his own a lot. A self-contained young man, prone to occasional moods and depression, he spent a lot of his teens playing war fantasy games, either alone or with some male friends. His parents were supportive, and he could confide some things with his mother, but relationships were somewhat detached. Originally keen on a career in the social sciences, Reuben moved away from this towards something to do with art and design, or animation, and applied to art college. Although in earlier interviews he expressed his nervousness at the prospect of asking girls out, by his last interview, he was in a serious relationship and quite keen on settling down, although his girlfriend was soon to disappear to university. Meanwhile his parents were on the point of separating, having long planned to do this but intentionally waited until Reuben had finished his schooling.
