Welcome to Brook Haven!
Welcome to Brook Haven Ranch! We are a 18+ premium role playing community set in Trader's Bend, Montana. Our concept is the culmination of twenty years of plotting and planning.

Healing Horses & Troubled Teens since 1995
Not every teenager has the benefit of growing up in a loving, happy home. Some are victims of abuse, neglect, a system that shuffles them from foster home to foster home. Brook Haven Ranch was established in 1995 as a refuge for abused and neglected horses -- and teenagers who needed a second chance in life and the opportunity to become something more than society expects of them.

All about Levi Washington

» Levi is the youngest of the three children that his parents had together. That isn't to say that he is the youngest, by any stretch of the imagination. But his parents only had three children together before his father left when he was nine.

» When his father left, Levi was expected to "man up". This is actually a point of contention between him and his mother. While he understands what was meant by that, the way he sees it, it's never a child's responsibility to be an adult -- it was his mother's responsibility to be a mother, and an adult woman and pull it together for her family.

» His mother was a serial dater, and had bad taste in men. Levi grew up watching his mother date all the wrong men and wondering how it was that she wound up with these men that would either love her and leave her, or stay and abuse her (and as later discovered, sometimes the girls as well).

» Levi got involved with a church community when he was thirteen. His life could have turned out very differently, and he's thankful every day for that sign for a church picnic and the marvelously smelling food that drew him in. He'd been hungry, he had a week before he was supposed to go see his dad, and his mom's boyfriend had eaten them out of house and home. He was hungry when he stumbled into this picnic, and he'd been about to turn around and leave when he felt a hand on his shoulder stopping him and asking if he was hungry. It was the head pastor of the church who said that he was happy that Levi had joined them in such a sincere way that he simply replied with "starving". It was the start of a really strong relationship with his pastor, who led him down his path to really discovering God and what love really was.

» Levi deals with a lot of insecurity over the color of his skin. A lot of this is due to people in his life making derogatory comments on the way that he behaves, or dresses, but he's strong willed enough to stick with it and not crack under pressure, but it does make him ever so slightly insecure under the strong shell.

» When he was seventeen, he lost his older sister. Shannon was a brilliant woman that struggled with a hidden eating disorder and eventually lost her battle with it when her heart gave out. Levi was young when she passed, and it still haunts him. It was what eventually led to him working with young women with eating disorders through an organization connected through his church, and eventually led with him attending school for counseling.

» Levi feels led to lead others to his God. Levi is a sweet soul with a heart not only for serving others, but one that was meant to lead them. He's a compassionate guy that's worked for everything that he has, and would love to one day be the head pastor of his own church and congregation.

» Levi really dislikes being asked if he's going to lead a baptist church. Honestly, he thinks it's a stereotype -- the black baptist preacher -- and he doesn't appreciate it. Why couldn't he lead a non-denominational church of his choosing if he chose, or maybe even something more traditional that isn't Baptist? The color of his skin shouldn't dictate where he can and can't effect change and help to counsel and lead others to God.

Body Image & Eating Disorder

♫ There could never be a more beautiful you
Don't buy the lies, disguises and hoops,
they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you ♫

What society does to girls is actually quite criminal, at least according to Levi. Having lost his own sister to anorexia and the heart problems that often accompany that disorder, he's made it a goal in his life to work with young girls and promote healthy body image and lifestyles choices. He would prefer to do this in a team, so there will be an opening or a request for that slot.

Levi will be volunteering on the ranch, working with the teenagers who are struggling with eating disorders or courting them, and working on overcoming those sorts of issues. They'll be coming up with plans and accountability schedules, charts, and buddy systems for their time on the ranch. But because not all eating disorders are caused by issues with body image, he will be working a program the teenagers about that specific thing as well.

Leading by Example

“The real power of a leader is in the number of minds he can reach, hearts he can touch, souls he can move, and lives he can change.”
― Matshona Dhliwayo

When he's not going to school or volunteering his time on the ranch, working with the teenagers, Levi works with the church, helping to lead the youth group for the Fruit of the Vine along with the collaborative youth group for all the areas churches. He really loves working with the teenagers and getting to know them and what it is that they enjoy or that weighs on their hearts. A lot of them aren't much younger than he is, which just fuels his belief that you lead by setting an example for others in your life to follow. Everyone has their own path, but there's no reason not to try to walk yours to the best of your ability.

The Pastors Daughter

"While they all fall in love with her smile, she waits for one who will fall in love with her scars."

Symphony is ... complicated. It's ironic really, that he fell for her, but it was the fact that despite everything, she really isn't perfect that got him. Here is this girl that's trying so desperately hard to fit a role, and she's stumbling, she's falling, and she's straying from her path while also trying to stay on it. It's a mess, and something about that Levi can't stay away from.

So when her father admitted to him that if she was going to date, he'd want her to date a man like Levi -- a man that would lead her down a path to Christ, and a man that would protect her heart, he sought permission to date her.

A Brother's Love

“Brothers are like streetlights along the road, they don’t make distance any shorter but they light up the path and make the walk worthwhile.”

When his sister offers to take their mother in, Levi stepped up to the plate as well. His mother was someone he'd been trying to help for years, and while he isn't one to give up on a person, there is a point that you have to give it to more capable hands than yourself. For this reason, he and his adult siblings came to an agreement that he couldn't be the one to take their mother in. The problem was that while Alisha had the room for his mom, she and her husband didn't have the additional room for the youngest sister, Arleen. So, in an attempt to help out, he's offered to take in his baby sister for as along as she needs, and provide her with stable home environment in which she can thrive.

For Levi, this is quite a bit of change, and it just so happens that it's a lot of change for Arleen. These two will need to be able to come together and work through issues as they both adjust.

About Levi

Levi here is a missionary student with a degree in counseling and theology that will be volunteering some of his time on the ranch working with a select group of students. When he's not attending classes, or volunteering time on the ranch, he's working at the church as the youth group leader and as a counselor through Fruit of the Vine.

He actually came to Trader's Bend at the recommendation of one of his college professors, who happened to be aware of the ranch program and the fact that he town had a variety of churches and seemed to be growing, and thought that Levi might be able to have a positive impact on the community, and maybe make a difference in some teenagers' lives.

He's a nice guy that's social and finds chatting with people about their everyday lives easy and does his best to relate. He goes out of his way to be kind and loving to those in his community and loves work with or for those that can use his help.

Platonic

Levi's a really social guy, and he's likely to not only be on the ranch and at church, but he's certain to make his way around town as he gets a feel for the area. He's polite, courteous, but when it's when he gets to know you that he'll really warm up the room. He loves to love people, and it shows in the way that he reaches out in the community and tries to work to support it. When he was a young teenager, finding a church saved him and helped him to be able to provide for his family. They pointed him in the right direction, and now he hopes to be able to pass that on to others as he directs them to Christ and does the best he can to support and love them through whatever their trial might be.

He's likely to be friendly with most, even if they aren't friendly with him. He'll be involved in town events.

Romantic

Levi is dating Symphony Lyonette. Yes, he's aware that she's pregnant, and no it isn't his baby. While he's aware that dating her might cause some problems, especially with those who believe that bi-racial couples shouldn't be a thing, he really cares about her and he wants to see her grow, help to guide her, and simply be allowed to love her. He's not interested in taking her to his bed, and he believes that what she needs most right now is support, for someone to show her what love and affection really look like from a man to a woman, and that life will continue to move forward. This isn't the end of the line for Sym, he really believes that.

While Levi has had ex before, it's not something that he likes to talk about as he does believe that there's power in saving one's self for marriage. He's a really great guy though, and while he's had girl friends in the past, it's never been anything serious.

Antagonistic

I imagine that Levi will manage to make some enemies along his journey and throughout his time in Trader's Bend. He's very vocal about his beliefs and his faith, and while he wouldn't consider himself pushy, some might. He tries not to be that guy that pushes people away from the faith, but he's not willing to sacrifice an opportunity to effect change in someone's life just because it might be a sticky topic. This can sometimes cause issues, especially with those who don't share his beliefs or those who think they know better than him simply because.

Levi does attempt to love people despite their faults, but there are cases where a person has to simply accept that it's not going to work. He doesn't like to fight, and he's more apt to walk away and simply cut ties than he is to get into a physical altercation with another person. With that said, if someone he loves is in danger, he could be put in a situation to stand between them and whatever is threatening them.

Familiar

Most of his siblings are half-siblings that are scattered. He has a good relationship with each of them individually, but they don't talk as much he'd like. His youngest sister is living with his mom, and he's concerned. He won't offer his mom a place to live (because past experience has taught him that it's a bad decision). Last he heard, their mother wasn't doing so well, and his sister and her husband were thinking of taking her in, but didn't have the room for Brianna too.

For the most part, he has really strong relationships with his family, and while they aren't typical, it works for them.

Other

As I mentioned above, Levi will be volunteering some of his time working on the ranch with kids that struggle with eating disorders, or who are believed to be. This will involve a program, personalized time, and counseling/talk sessions. He really wants to see these kids grow into happy, healthy, and successful individuals.

QUOTE
Your Character finds out that one of their friends murdered their family member. How do they react?
His heart stopped for a moment. He couldn't process what had just been said, but Greg had called panicked, obviously uneasy and unsure of himself, and in need of a friend. The problem was that none of this made any sense. The moment he could latch onto the fact, time seemed to catch up with him and he let go of the breath he'd been holding.

Gently, he set the coffee pot back on the warmed and continued to make the drinks he'd first offered. He needed more information. Maybe this wasn't what it sounded like, and if it was, then they would deal with that too.

"Take a seat, and we can talk about this." Making assumptions wasn't going to do him or his friend any good. The best thing that he could do was have Greg talk about what he'd come to talk to him about. They'd go through what happened, and once he had the story, he could make other decisions.

After adding the desired cream and sugar to the coffees, Levi grabbed both mugs and moved toward the table himself. As carefully as possible, he set the hot mugs down, then pulled out a chair, careful not to let it scrape against the floor, then took a seat. As if he'd been called Cooper was by his side, leaning into the side of his leg.

"Come on, Greg. You came here because you wanted to talk, so sit with me and have a cup of coffee and we can do just that." His previously calm tone was even more gentle as he spoke again while running his hand over his dog's fur.

No matter the story, Levi didn't believe in murder, but then again, there were a lot of things that Levi didn't believe in. It was a good thing that he wasn't put on the earth to judge, but rather to guide and counsel with love.

Habits

Jesus and Germs are Everywhere

Levi believes in prayer. When he struggles with a problem, you can find him speaking to go in prayer or sitting quietly and reflecting on what it is that he's struggling with. He believes that answers and change can be found through prayer and action when they combine forces. Sometimes, it's time to wait and listen and others it's time to do what your told or called to.

Whether he has an issue or not, he always prays before eating his food. He once heard one of the women in his congregation say, "Wash your hands and say your prayers because Jesus and Germs are everywhere," and he always does both before sitting down to eat.

Weekly Reflections

Sunday evenings, Levi takes the time to reflect on his week. This is a weekly ritual that he always does, typically with a cup of tea or coffee later in the evening. This quiet time to himself helps him to understand what he handled well and what he could do with improving on. He always finds something that he could improve at, or potentially handle better the next time. This is his way of holding himself accountable for what he does and the decisions that he makes so that he can learn from his experiences.

Dress your best

Levi is always dressed in a presentable fashion. Whether it's in jeans or slacks, or a button down or t-shirt, he always makes sure that what he's wearing is appropriate before he steps out the door. You'll never find him with his underwear showing, or generally looking like a bum. He takes pride in his appearance.

Quirks

Collects odd trinkets

Throughout college, Levi began collecting trinkets and knickknacks. He enjoys placing them around his home and finding places for them. It's one of those things that's a little bit odd, but that he enjoys collecting knicknacks that are a little different but have meaning to him, and then putting them on display in his home.

Fascinated with oceans

There's something about salt water that's special Growing up, Levi was lucky enough to have access to that, and ever since, he's always been fascinated with oceans. While it's far from being his calling, he'd love to see the many bodies of salt water that are available to him.

Prone to fidgeting with things

Levi has difficulty sitting still. Over the years, he's managed to come up with ways to combat this, but he is prone to fidgeting with things when he's not otherwise occupied. He's most prone to tapping or twirling pens, pencils, or small items.

Hobbies

Swimming

The man loves water. He loves to swim and have fun, and he ALWAYS prefers natural over pools. He likes the way that it feels on his skin and he could spend hours every day having fun in the water, alone or with friends.

Philanthropy

Levi spends quite a bit of his down time volunteering and working with others. Whether this is through a battered woman's shelter (locally or not), working with the kids on the ranch, or volunteering to help out in his community (church or town), it doesn't really matter. He loves to be able to help others, and he doesn't expect anything for having done it -- he calls it being a compassionate person.

Crafts

You see crafts, and I'm sure you think artsy stuff on the walls. For Levi, it's a little bit different than that. While he doesn't believe in distinguishing "girlie" from "manly", he has an eye for crafts that really add something to space. He loves to make something out of nothing, or take a something and turn it into an entirely different thing than it was. This is something he enjoys. Furniture out of pipe, or wood and cement blocks are right up his alley.

Skills

Handiness • advanced

Growing up without his father present and dealing with the fact that there never seemed to be enough money to go around at his mom's place, Levi quickly learned how to fix things when they broke. As much as it might have seemed easier to just replace it, that wasn't always an option, and as a result, he's actually quite handy. He's dabbled in just about everything, and he will always do his best to correct a problem with the most logical and long term solution possible.

Organization • Advanced

When he was small, he remembers his mother being organized, but that went downhill (like a lot of things did) when his father left her. It's difficult to him to think in an unorganized space and for this reason, his personal spaces are often very organized. He even has his day organized through a planner that he keeps on him, so he can edit it as he goes.

counseling • advanced

Levi is very good at listening to a person and either offering them solid genuine advice or helping them come to rational solutions to their issues on their own. He's been doing this for years, and he really enjoys being able to help people this way.

Interests

Oceans

Levi was blessed to grow up near the ocean, and even having lived in one, it never stopped the fascination with them. He loves everything about them from the way that they look and smell, to life that goes far beyond our knowledge in the depths of them. He has quite a few books about oceans around the world on his personal bookshelf, and he keeps quite a few photographs and trinkets around his home that represents that.

Dogs

So, not only does Levi have an interest in dogs, he has one of his own. He loves Cooper very much, and even has him trained to walk off the leash with him so that he can go most places with him. He has a healthy level of respect for dogs and has done extensive research on them, not only because he's fascinated but because he wants to do the best he can by Cooper. He's even gone as far as to begin getting him accredited as a therapy dog.

Foraging

The idea of foraging and living off what's provided by the earth locally is fascinating for Levi. He's not sure that he'd ever be able to do it, but it's definitely something he'd love to learn more about.

Desired Plots

Didn't You Hear?

Levi is going to be involved with Symphony Lyonette, and I'd love it if someone would put him in an awkward situation for a moment by assuming that a Godly man like himself must not know that Sym is pregnant. Of course he does, but this could lead to an awesome interaction in which he calmly informs the concerned person that he is aware and that one decision does not define a person. The fact that she's pregnant shouldn't make her a pariah within the community and that if it somehow has, then perhaps it's those judging her situation that have room to grow.

Don't tell me "No."

Levi is going to be working with teenagers that are struggling with eating disorders and I'd love for him to have a thread with a student on the ranch that is having a difficult moment. As kind and compassionate as he can be, he isn't going to back down, not for anything. To Levi, these kids just matter to much for him to let it go, and so he won't.

Bi-racial couple

I'd love to have someone protest Levi's relationship with Sym on the basis that it's a bi-racial relationship. Obviously, the fact that one of them is white and the other black doesn't mean a thing, but I would love for it to be a real problem for this person! This could make for a good drama filled thread, or series of!

I'm so glad that you made him for me <3 Not that Symphony needs a ton more drama in her life, but I do, and I'm looking forward to seeing the town's responses to the black man dating the preacher's pregnant daughter, especially with the bit of an age gap in here. This is going to be interesting and I'm definitely ready to explore the possibilities. I'd be thrilled to do a first meeting thread with these two, as done in on first meetings as I am in general (and we still need to do Rhett & Keith). We'll get something up soon!

Levi & Karl
TW: Racism You know Karl's always up for a little bigotry. Karl doesn't think of himself as racist; in fact, he thinks of race as one of the issues he's more liberal on, and he's trying to be nice to Levi, because he actually does respect what Levi is doing with his life. But that "niceness" comes with a lot of microaggressions - Karl thinks (TW: racism) that Levi is "such a good model for kids who might otherwise become drug dealers" and that sort of thing. Similarly, Karl's not outright opposed to inter-racial marriage, but he wouldn't be quiet about his concerns. Not that there's anything wrong with it, just that, you know, won't it be confusing for the child, and that sort of thing. So anyway, if you want a thread where Levi gets some thinly veiled racism thrown at him, Karl's your guy.

Tyler lived in Trader's Bend until he was 7, when his family was in a serious car accident. His mother was seriously injured, and he went to live with his father, step-mother, and step-sister for several years. After using a horse riding accident to reveal their abuse, he's returned to live with his mother again.

Levi & Tyler
Tyler's a somewhat confused teenager in Levi's congregation, and the fact that he's somewhere between a peer and an "adult" in Tyler's eyes does make it more likely that Tyler would be open with him about something. I'm not sure what would make a thread along those lines rewarding for Levi, but I want to mention the idea in case you have a thought. I should also point out that Levi would probably be the first African-American who Tyler has actually had a conversation with. Tyler's intentions are a lot better than Karl's, but he is pretty ignorant, which is something we could arrange to come up between them (or avoid, if it's not interesting).

Kalea & LeviKalea doesn't believe she has an eating disorder. She's not starving herself (that she realizes) or purging. She simply doesn't want to eat anything that isn't junk food. Nothing to do with body image but more so with the way her mother fed her and her brother. when they couldn't afford real food when she was little, her mother would feed them candy or chips. Kal adapted to that. Not she doesn't take much interest in actual meals. She doesn't think anyone needs to worry about her and eating habits because she doesn't feel there's anything wrong with it. If she does have to end up seeing Levi, she is going to go about it the same way she does with anyone who tries to bring up the way she eats. That there's nothing to worry about and that atleast she eats at all. I could also see them bonding over swimming and the ocean. Kal misses both so much and treated the ocean as her therapy as a young kid. It helped her to soothe her worries and stress. She could definitely talk about it with Levi. She'll also see no issue with him being in a interracial relationship and would be super supportive of his and Sym's relationship.Hit me back!

Levi & Amelia RoseTW - ED talk, religion Ok. So I'm sorry that this isn't super well thought out. But I do think that these two would be a bit silly together. Because Levi is so outgoing, and Amelia Rose is-- Amelia Rose. She would be completely into talking to him about school, and her goals for the school year but the second he tried to talk to her about something deeper I can see Amelia Rose just blinking at him. But I think the most interesting thing that these to could get into is religion. Amelia Rose grew up close to Rome and was completely immersed in an overtly religious population, and she currently is agnostic. She wants something to believe in but has trouble actually believing. I can see her asking him about church history, and his beliefs while she is trying to navigate her own. Hit me back!
