Education/Profession: Bartender and Manager of the Multi-Purpose Club called "fallout"
The Bar: The basement was blown out and down. He made it directly to fire code, with three exits out of the bottom club. He designed a bar off to the side, a stage with a catwalk and several tables off to the side for people to sit at. He decided to call the lower club "shelter". The middle level was kept pretty much the same it had during it's years as "Highlight". The third level of the club was half removed, creating an overhang to the entrance floor. The bar from the entrance floor was moved up here to create a bigger club feeling downstairs and made it more acceptable to the 18-20 year-old client level. A fourth level was added on to the club, which he called "gathering". It was made up of large tables and plush three quarter plush couches around the table. There were about ten of the in a row upon getting up to the floor. They were in a row leading down towards a grand piano. The opposing side was a bar. On this level, you couldn't hear the club down below and, unlike the club below, it had large paneled windows to look out but no one could see in. A fifth level was added on, with a secret entranceway behind the bar on the fourth level. The fifth level was Trey's office. It was quite large, filled with art, a mini-fridge, counters, appliances, an old radio, a television, his desk, and a half circle plush couch to watch tv on. He made it comfortable because he just about lives there.
Trey stands at a tall 5'8", tall considering he's the tallest in his family. His height helped him when he worked as a bouncer, but he wishes he wasn't tall. He'd have preferred to have stop growing around 5'5"-5'6". At least then his baby face would fit him just a little bit more. He easily looks like he's in his low 20s, often getting asked if he was 21 and receives shocked faces when he tells them he's quite older than that. Trey was born with naturally blonde hair, but in his teens he would dye it brown because kids picked on him. However, he stopped dying it after he learned about what happened to his father. Some parts of his hair lost the blonde color and have begun to simply turn brown in color. Trey also tries to hide behind a pair of glasses to look smart and actually look his age. However, his smile makes him look younger. When he smiles, it seems like his eyes become a little bit smaller and it's one of the few times when Trey actually shows off his teeth. They're not 100% straight but they're pretty good for never having worn braces. He has dark blue eyes, which some ask if they're grey or blue. When it comes to clothing, Trey just wears whatever is comfortable for him. There are days when he'd rather wear jeans and a t-shirt then the next wear a suit. His choice in clothing changes as quickly as his attitude.
PERSONALITY, TRAITS & QUIRKS
The first thing about him is he refuses to go by Gideionn unless he's signing something or doing something business related. Otherwise, he would prefer people to call him by Trey. Even his family calls him it, unless he's in trouble and then his mother, or father, will call him by his full name and begin a ten minute rant, barely half of which Trey would even listen to.
Trey is pretty much a teddy bear. He used to be well built, with a strong attitude to match. However, since becoming manager, his weight and size have gone down as has his attitude. He's quite a stern boss, but is completely understanding and cares deeply for all he hires. He treats his friends and employees like his own family. He makes sure to know about them, remembering their family members and any recent events about them. He often sends flowers and cards and gifts to friends or employees who get hospitalized or suffer an accident, or something bad happens to them. He does his best to be the best friend everyone wants and the boss everyone loves to brag about as being amazing.
Trey is slightly distant with his family when his personal life is concerned. He wants his parents to be proud of him, not disappointed in him. He grew up with little money, barely able to finish high school, so he doesn't want to do anything that would hurt his family. His family is his world, and his brothers are his rock. If he didn't have them, he'd surely go insane. He provides for his family in place of his father, who is in a wheelchair and unable to work. Trey has high ambitions of being able to earn enough to support his parents and siblings so his mother doesn't need to work.
He puts a lot on his shoulders and doesn't like to let others help carry his burden. He will take up several tasks just so it won't inconvenience someone else. One of the difficult decisions Trey made was to be a full time student in college during the day while running a club at night. It always stresses him out, mainly since he only sleeps a couple hours in the afternoon or after the club shuts down for the night. However, he isn't the type to complain about his situation, mostly since it was his own choice to try and juggle work with school.
HISTORY & PAST
Three times Harris asked Antoinette to go out with him between their time in high school and in college. Antoinette declined the first time, their senior year of high school, and the second time, their sophomore year of college. It wasn't that she was dating anyone and she never gave him a reason why she turned him down. However, when Harris asked a third time, their senior year of college, Antoinette finally agreed to go out with him.
Again, the same thing happened when Harris asked Antoinette to marry him. They had been together for two years before Harris asked Antoinette to marry him. However, Antoinette turned him down. Determined not to lose her, Harris kept seeing her. After another year, he tried again. He hoped she would have changed her mind after three years of dating, but she hadn't. She still turned him down and they went back to normal boyfriend and girlfriend status. Harris waited another two years before he could get the courage to think of proposing to Antoinette, who finally accepted the proposal. At age 27, and six years of dating, the couple got married. When asked why she would forever turn Harris down then accepted, Antoinette would reply that she wanted to know that he truly loved her enough to chase after her if she turned him down.
Feb 29th, 1968 would have been like any other leap year for the Pucketts had it not been for the birth of their son Trey, whom they named Gideionn after Harris' grandfather. Antoinette, who had been a teacher, quit her job to be a stay at home mother. Harris however, who had gone through the NROTC during college and was a full time Officer in the Marines, kept his position to support his family. With Trey, then Lloyd and Tristan, Harris began to work harder and longer. All the children were raised to realize how important the military was and they supported their father.
Trey was your normal happy child growing up, getting into trouble and getting grounded. He had a large group of friends in elementary school, but he lost them when his parents moved them as soon as Trey reached middle school. He was moved to a charter school and had to start all over. It was then that he began to rebel against his family. He would stay out and would get into worse trouble, on several occasions during middle school and the beginning of high school he had been escorted home by the police. In eighth grade, Trey began to dye his hair to try and get more of a rebel appearance. He wanted to be a rebel without a cause. He just wanted to do what he wanted without people telling him what to do.
In high school, Trey picked up smoking, something that drove his parents up a wall. He also began dating girls left and right, most his parents didn't approve of. It was in his junior year of high school that multiple things snapped him out of whatever trance the boy had fallen into. While at home, his baby brother Tristan had been upset with him and was throwing a fit. Trey hadn't been paying much attention, but he was soon freaking out because his cigarettes were worms. He wanted to kill his brother, but he couldn't. He noticed that his brother just wanted him to hang out with him. Trey was supposed to be the man around the house as their father had been sent abroad to help in some conflict. He decided he had to step up because his brothers needed a better figure then he had been. Although it was hard for him, he dropped most of the friends he had at school. He spent the rest of his junior year with spray paint on his locker and getting picked on left and right by his former friends, but it ended after two months.
The summer seemed to be the longest summer. The first day of summer started with a phone call, which Trey had picked up. The call wasn't for him but for his mother, and he just felt like something bad had happened. By his mother bursting into tears, Trey knew it wasn't good. He came to learn that his father had been injured during a fight and things didn't look good. To get out his frustration of waiting for his father to be sent back to America, Trey joined a gym. He had quit smoking cold turkey that day Tristan had turned his cigarettes into worms. It caused him to run at the track at his school, but nothing like what he had started to do at the gym. He weight trained and ran and just did everything the gym had to offer him. He also had started to apply for jobs, knowing he would need to help support his family so his mother didn't have to work. He knew that Lloyd had plans to also help out when he was old enough. Lloyd prided himself in being a paper boy and always gave his money to their mom over the summer. Always hearing Lloyd's words, "Is this enough to bring Daddy home?", made Trey try harder for a job. And he began to look at occupations he would never have thought of doing.
Within a month of starting his job search, Trey was hired by the club "Highlight" as a bouncer. He was a little intimidating to those who saw him. He was 5'7" and well built. He didn't take anything from anyone and had no problem with telling someone older and bigger then him that they couldn't go into the club. On occasion, he was allowed into the club to toss people out. He became close to the owner, who had been classmates with his father back in college. Trey began to connect with him, even after his father was finally brought home to the United States.
During the school year, every weekend, Trey would work at the club. He made sure to spend time with his brothers and began to act like a better brother to them. However, there seemed to always be a bit of bad blood between him and Lloyd. Trey was just happier that Tristan seemed to forgive him and wanted to hang out with him. His mother was also glad for his changes, especially since he was making new friends, better friends. These friends were there for him and were his support when him and his family were told that his father was alive but he was paralyzed from the neck down. Trey swore his mother cried for the whole week before they could see Harris for the first time since he returned back to the U.S.
Trey didn't like seeing his father in a wheel chair, able to talk and smile but unable to move anything below his neck. He was completely dependent on them, and Trey was the one who saw his father at his lowest. When his father cried, Trey would cry. He hated seeing his father so weak because he had always been the strong one in the family. Now all of that was placed on Trey.
Upon graduating from high school, there was no chance of Trey going to college because his trust fund was being used to help keep the family from losing their house and putting food on the table. They couldn't afford it. So Trey began to work full time at Highlight during the night and took up a full time position at a grocery store during the day. He continued this until the owner of Highlight passed away and left the club to him and his friend Max, who worked as a bouncer inside the club. It was a big jump for him and he was able to quit his job at the grocery store, now able to live off the single pay check, although most of it went to his family.
Trey and the rest of his family were quite surprised when a Ministry of Magic official was at their door on Tristan's twelfth birthday. Trey just wanted to send them away. It was complete rubbish. Magical school? There were no witches or wizards in their family. They were normal like the Johnson's next door and the Blakes across the street. And here this guy was, claiming his baby brother was a wizard and should go to some school in Massachusetts called Salem. It took him a little bit, but Trey became the only one to back Tristan's wishes to go to Salem. And in the fall, Tristan was sent off to Salem. Trey has yet to regret his choice in sending his brother there. He liked the idea of having a wizard for a baby brother, buying everything his brother needed for school.
When Lloyd graduated high school, he went right to Trey and announced he wanted to go to Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Trey was completely shocked, not by his brother coming to him but that his brother wanted to join the Marines like their father had. But Trey, hoping to close the distance between him and his younger brother, took up the burden of helping to pay for Lloyd's college tuition. He was actually proud of his brother for wanting to be a Marine.
Shortly after his twenty-third birthday, Max wanted out of the club business and left the club to Trey alone. He continued to run the club for a bit, opening it up on special occasions for Salem students to come and party. He mainly did it as a New Years party and summer kick off parties. Had Salem students been able to leave for Valentine's Day, he would surely let them celebrate at the club. The fall after Max quitting, Trey shut down the club for a couple months. He many things removed from the club that he wanted to keep before he had the club renovated started from the bottom up. The basement was blown out and down. He made it directly to fire code, with three exits out of the bottom club. He designed a bar off to the side, a stage with a catwalk and several tables off to the side for people to sit at. He decided to call the lower club "shelter". The middle level was kept pretty much the same it had during it's years as "Highlight". The third level of the club was half removed, creating an overhang to the entrance floor. The bar from the entrance floor was moved up here to create a bigger club feeling downstairs and made it more acceptable to the 18-20 year-old client level. A fourth level was added on to the club, which he called "gathering". It was made up of large tables and plush three quarter plush couches around the table. There were about ten of the in a row upon getting up to the floor. They were in a row leading down towards a grand piano. The opposing side was a bar. On this level, you couldn't hear the club down below and, unlike the club below, it had large paneled windows to look out but no one could see in. A fifth level was added on, with a secret entranceway behind the bar on the fourth level. The fifth level was Trey's office. It was quite large, filled with art, a mini-fridge, counters, appliances, an old radio, a television, his desk, and a half circle plush couch to watch tv on. He made it comfortable because he just about lives there.
The club was reopened by winter of the same year. It excited him as he reopened the club, renaming it "fallout" to go with all the new renovations. He felt like it was a brand new club. He found the flow of the club to become twice as much as it used to be. The gathering became a place for business meetings and deals while the shelter became a hideout for teens, young adults, and adults of all ages to try and get away to have fun. At twenty-five, Trey finally decided he was going to go to college. He enrolled in a nearby college in business management. He has sometimes regretted it since, but he has yet to stop because he doesn't want to be seen as a quitter.
