COCKY: Finn is a lot of things -- intelligent, witty, good looking, and sometimes downright lucky. The downside is that he knows it and has for a long time now. He has himself quite an ego, but it's his confidence that has gotten him both in and out the many adventures that he manages to make in a town as small as Dunhaven. For as big as his ego might be, though, it's prone to being bruised. He doesn't like it when people doubt his abilities. In fact, doing so sets him directly on a path to prove them wrong. Despite not having had the easiest of lives in his early years, he's grown accustomed to his skills meaning that he doesn't often not get his way.
LOYAL: It isn't always easy for Finn to let new people into his life, but when he does, you've made a longtime friend, whether you like it or not. He's very loyal to the people he comes to care about and will do anything for them, even if he might sometimes have to argue with himself when he's stuck between helping a friend and some self-preservation. In the end, he usually makes the right decision -- he just sometimes needs a push from his best friend and conscience, Indiana.
CHARISMATIC: To say that Finn is charming would be an understatement. There will always be some that are immune to his charms, but that won't keep him from trying to win them over. He's clever and social, able to hold conversation with just about anyone and knows how to blend into any circle as needed. His charm is often what helps get him out of trouble, as he can talk himself out of just about anything. It also would be remiss not to mention that he is one heck of a flirt.
CYNICAL: Though he's never known his father, Finn has always known that he chose to abandon him and his mother and he's never forgiven him for it. Even now, at the age where his parents first found out about him, he holds nothing but disdain for what he did. It also set the foundation on a relatively cynical outlook on life. If his own father was willing to leave them behind and has never made an attempt to reach out to him in his seventeen years of life, how can he expect a perfect stranger to be any better? He tends to need multiple first impressions before he'll really decide if someone is worth his time.
RISK-TAKER: Finn is one of those sorts that will act first, then beg forgiveness or think about what he did later. He dives into things without thinking them through, figuring that he'll just devise a way out of it if he ends up in trouble. Trouble is exactly where he's ended up because of it, but it's also resulted in a lot of fun, so...
Finn Solomon was not even remotely planned. In fact, it couldn't even be said that he was a pleasant surprise as his parents were barely even seventeen when they found out that they were going to have a child themselves. Jack Clarkson and Grace Solomon weren't even really dating when she found out she was pregnant, their friendship purely out of convenience as they happened to have mutual friends. Jack was from the next town over from Dunhaven, but he had some friends that went to school with Grace, putting them in that same group. They were young and made some potentially poor decisions over wine coolers and cheap beer a few times at parties and history was made. Neither of them had parents that pointed toward a church when the news was relayed to them, though some lectures about disappointment were made to Grace on more than one occasion. What more, it didn't take long for Jack to start to withdraw from Grace, making her nervous. Though she had made the decision to keep the baby, largely due to her family's support, she had hoped that Jack would stick around to help. It would have been harder had he lived in Dunhaven to disappear as he did, but one day the calls stopped coming and Grace and their shared friends were unable to contact him either. He disappeared a few days after he turned eighteen and a couple of weeks before Grace's due date.
In the end, Grace's son was born just over a week late. She named him Finn after her grandfather and, despite the stress and drama that his creation brought, she fell in love with her son immediately. She lived at home and went back to school to finish her senior year as soon as she could, relying heavily on her parents for help as she juggled homework and her son. With a lot of hard work and determination, she graduated on time and with her classmates, but she put her original college plans on hold as she focused on finding work. She bounced around for a few years, taking plenty of jobs as a waitress, bartender, or cashier at different businesses before she settled into a teller position at the local bank. It gave her decent enough pay and benefits to be able to strike out on her own with her son, finally moving out from her childhood home to an apartment for just the two of them.
It wasn't until Finn was in preschool that he really started to notice that his family was different. He was very close to his mother and grandparents, but it didn't take long for him to notice that a lot of the other kids had fathers. It didn't take long for him to start asking questions and for Grace to start sugar-coating the truth. Though she never outright lied, she also never used the word "abandoned" when describing his father. Eventually Finn would work that out for himself.
Throughout his childhood, Finn was frequently described as a spirited boy. Energetic was another word, though it was usually used at the end of the school year, with spirited being a more optimistic view. He had a lot of imagination and a tendency to think that obeying authority was optional and that rules were made to be bent or completely broken. He spent a lot of time missing out on recess or, when he was older, placed in detention, largely because of the stunts he tried to pull. It became a regular source of contention between himself and his mother. Though Grace made as much time as she could for Finn, it was hard when he acted out at every corner. The problem, of course, wasn't that he was a bad kid that just did bad things, but it was simply because he was too smart of a kid that got bored easily and tried to make his own fun and adventure.
Besides, he didn't always go around getting in trouble. Sometimes he used his attitude (and reputation, that wasn't entirely fairly earned) for good, like when he stepped in when he saw a bunch of their classmates giving Indiana Crawford a hard time. The kid was new to Dunhaven and had the unfortunate curse of being different in a small town. Finn isn't entirely sure why he stepped in, but he did and earned himself a lifelong friend for it. That night, he went home and told his mother that he made a new friend and wanted to learn sign language to be able to communicate with him better. After getting a bit more information out of her son, Grace promptly picked up extra shifts at the bank to pay for the lessons. He caught on quickly, though he and Indiana always had a gift for understanding one another, even before Finn could read sign language.
As he got older, Finn became a bit more subdued -- a bit being the key words. The main reason for that came when he was ten-years-old, when his mother told him that they would have company over for dinner that night. The company was her boyfriend, Diego Rojas. Though Grace had dated a few men since Finn had been born, this was the first one that she actually brought home to meet her son, which he realized in a way that it meant something. He was prepared to dislike the man, simply because he was taking up a lot more of his mother's time than he'd have liked, but he quickly found it impossible to do that. Simply put, he was a nice guy. Diego talked to Finn as though he was a person, not just a kid that he was trying to impress because he wanted his mother to continue liking him. He genuinely seemed to care and, before long, Finn found himself with a father figure that wasn't his grandfather for the first time in his life. When his mother married Diego the following year, he was sincerely excited about the event and the changes. More changes came quickly when shortly after their first anniversary, Diego and Grace brought home Finn's half-sister, Molly.
Five years have passed since Molly was born, with another half-sister, Hannah, joining the family four years later, and Finn is now staring down his final year of high school. His mother and step-father are breathing down his neck to start thinking about college, though he isn't sure that he's really made for college. He already knows there's no way he'd get into the local university, so it would mean going out of the city. Doing so doesn't sound like the worst thing, except he really has no idea what he wants to do with himself or what he would study. The future is going to come eventually, whether he has a plan or not, and Finn has always been better at coming up with his plans on the fly, rather than being meticulous or figuring something out step by step. His parents and guidance counselor don't really find that to be a sound method to embrace the future, though.
