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.

Once upon a time, Karl was a teenager rebelling against the close-minded, parochial town of Trader's Bend. He was a bright, sensitive boy who couldn't understand why he'd been born into a tiny ranching town. It was the late 70's, things had been changing in the rest of the country, and all he had to do to experience it was get out of his backwards hometown.

He was accepted, with a scholarship, to the University of Wisconsin. He promised to come back once a year for Christmas, though he didn't plan to keep the promise for long.

In college, Karl discovered his sexuality. The Madison gay scene wasn't a place for a fresh-faced farm boy to discover gentle romance. He discovered clubs, and drugs, and ways of having sex he'd never imagined. He had sex with more men than he could count, in more ways than he could count. Though Karl would never think of himself as a victim, more than one night ended up with Karl, too drugged-out to be sure what was going on, having sex with a man whose name he never knew.

He graduated and followed a man he thought he loved to Chicago. That relationship didn't last long, and Karl found himself jobless and alone in a big city with a degree in chemistry and, he soon learned, Hepatitis C.

Short on money, he returned to Blue Lake. He worked as a substitute teacher and part-time ranch hand while he reconsidered his life. He still felt stifled by the small town, but terrified by the wild place he'd encountered outside it.

It was the start of the AIDS epidemic a few years later than changed his mind. Hepatitis C hadn't been a curse, but a blessing, a wake-up call that had saved his life, because he undoubtedly would have gotten AIDS if he'd continued on the path he'd been on. Perhaps, he decided, the town was right after all: the world was changing, but not for the better.

Soon after, the high school had an opening for a new chemistry teacher, and Karl got the job. It was the perfect opportunity to try to mentor children like he'd been, to help them find their place in Trader's Bend - and protect them from the rest of the world.

Karl kept his sexuality hidden, but not marrying would raise questions, and besides, Karl was lonely: he wanted a companion, even if he didn't really want a lover. He dated a few women, which was easier in the traditional culture of Blue Lake where a couple wasn't supposed to have sex until after marriage.

Lenore was the first woman he really felt a connection with, though. They dated for two years before Karl felt he was leading on a woman he genuinely cared about. He confessed his history, expecting her to break up immediately. To his surprise, she accepted him. They reached an understanding that suited them both: a loving family, a few children, and no sex.

Karl and Lenore had two children, now nearly grown. Many in the town know that Lenore had difficulty getting pregnant, and that they went out of town for medical assistance to help her pregnant. As controversies have come and gone in the town, Karl has become increasingly vocal as an outspoken opponent of almost any change. He has an uneasy relationship with some of the staff at Brook Haven; even though he supports the program, and his family sometimes volunteers there, he has very strong opinions on how it should be run and doesn't hesitate to let them know when he disagrees with something going on there.

The less things change

Karl is a vocal opponent of some of the ways Brook Haven is expanding and changing. He supports the basic idea of the program, but he thinks the program is moving in a direction that too tolerant of behaviors he doesn't approve of - meaning LGBT students and religious minorities.

Soft Bigotry

Karl doesn't think of himself as a bigot. He doesn't hate anyone, and he staunchly opposes violence and even excessive rudeness directed at people who don't fit in in town. Instead, he thinks people who don't belong in Trader's Bend should be gently shunned until they understand that they're not wanted here; there's plenty of space for them elsewhere.

House of Cards

Karl and his wife have an arrangement. They have a sexless but caring marriage, and work as a team, sharing gossip and town politics to help both of their careers and position in the town social life.

About Karl

Karl is a gregarious guy with a big voice and a lot of opinions. He's lived in Trader's Bend most of his life and knows almost everyone. He's generally friendly, at least to people who he thinks fit in, but not always sensitive to other people's feelings. He loves arguing, and he's someone who can separate the people he disagrees with from the ones he doesn't respect. Many people find his style of argument overbearing and get put off by him, but people who can put up with up find that he can go from insulting someone one minute to buying them a bear the next.

Platonic

Karl can be a good guy to be friends with He and his family are very involved in the town; they're the sort who sends over a meal when mom's sick, or has a whole family over for a nice dinner when they need companionship and cheering up. He believes, strongly, in Trader's Bend as a place, and the people who live there, and tries hard to support others.

Romantic

Karl is gay, very in the closet, and not interested in any relationship other than his marriage.

Antagonistic

It's easy to get on Karl's bad side if you're openly queer, Muslim, or just too "different". Karl has strong opinions, and the more he thinks someone disagrees with him, the louder and more forcefully he'll say it to them. He's not a violent man, but he (and, under some circumstances, his wife) isn't above spreading nasty rumors if he's sufficiently incensed at someone.

Familiar

Karl is very close to his wife, and cares a great deal about his children. He sees himself as the family patriarch.

Other

Karl's is a very strict teacher, and plenty of students loath him (something Karl quite openly enjoys). He does care about teaching, though, and for many students - especially locals who aren't college bound - he's actually a pretty good teacher, and there are people in town who remember his class as one of the best of their time in high school.

First Impressions

Karl is gregarious, loud, and opinionated.

Stranger Impressions

It's hard to be in Trader's Bend long without knowing something about Karl. He's loud and present at anything important in town. Some people might get told that he's a good person to meet. Others might be warned to avoid him if they don't want to be offended.

Friendly Impressions

Karl is a guy you can count on to help when you need it, and if you're a close friend, it might be because you think Karl says some of the things you were thinking but were too polite to say.

Familiar Impressions

Karl is very devoted to his family, though not always considerate - he has high expectations and isn't flexible about them.

Rival Impressions

Karl does have a lot of respect for a proper rival, and while he's very competitive, he's not actually mean to people he respects - at least, not intentionally.

Enemy Impressions

Karl is imperious, rude, and at times pointlessly cruel to people he disapproves of.

Authority Impressions

Now that he's well established, Karl can be frustrating for his bosses to deal with. He's set in his ways, and doesn't want some new principal telling him to do things differently.

Coworker/Partner Impressions

Coworkers can find Karl frustrating; he always has an opinion about how everything should be done, but he's rarely open to other people's ideas.

Lover Impressions

Karl isn't a considerate lover, but then, he isn't a lover at all, and he and his wife understand each other well.

Self-Impressions

Karl thinks very highly of himself. He thinks people are lucky to have him around, because he's just so useful and clever.

Post-Mortem Impressions

At Karl's funeral, a lot of people will talk loudly about how he was a devoted family man and teacher, and how he was a big presence whose absence everyone will notice. And a lot of people will quietly whisper that noticing isn't the same as missing.

Mun Impressions

I enjoy playing Karl more than I probably should. Despite his many flaws, the way he's overbearing and self-important reminds me a little of me, or at least the person I'm sometimes tempted to be, so he's both a reminder not to be like him, and an expression of some behavior I wouldn't want to actually engage in.

While I think of Karl as primarily a villain, he's not pure evil, and I also like the way that sometimes, just when people expect him to be awful, he can come through.

Habits

Four cups a day

Coffee has a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, a cup after first period, a cup after lunch, and a cup after school. No more, and no less.

The morning paper

Karl reads the local paper religiously. He writes letters to the editor about once a month.

Quirks

Storyteller

Karl is prone to telling long, rambling stories when he has the chance.

Food pusher

Without exactly meaning to, Karl tends to push food on people in social situations.

Saved

His religion is one of the few things Karl doesn't love to talk about, but he's quite serious about it, since he feels that it saved his life.

Hobbies

Grilling

Karl loves grilling, and takes it quite seriously. Fancy grilling equipment is one of his more expensive indulgences.

Geocaching

He's a little private about this one, because he feels like it's out of character, but one of his kids got him into it.

Poker

He's no card shark, and he doesn't like to gamble a lot of money (though he often gets goaded into gambling more than he should, to his wife's annoyance), but he loves a game of poker, and the social atmosphere that goes with it.

Interests

Western Movies

He's watched all the classics, most of them several times. His wife tolerates it, but he mostly has to watch them alone or talk his kids into them.

Crime Shows

Given how many are on the air, this is his easy supply of a show whenever he's in the mood to watch one.

Nature walks

The kids have mostly bowed out of these now that they're teenagers, but he and his wife still try to walk once a week during the nice parts of the year. They've been all over the area, so sometimes they'll drive for hours to see a new area.

Desired Plots

The Past has a Long Reach

Karl has kept his sexuality, and his hepatitis, as secret as he can, but there are people who know, and others who suspect. Relatedly, while Karl is older than many teachers, there are still people in town who remember the rebellious teenager he once was. A student who thinks of him as a hostile figure might be surprised to find out they have something in common. An enemy might think to blackmail him.

The Status Quo

Karl thinks he's anti-bullying. He has no tolerance for violence, or even harsh words, directed towards students in his presence.

But he also thinks that a certain amount of bullying is the natural order of the world, and maybe even helps toughen kids up a bit. So while he wouldn't tolerate it in his presence, he's not particularly harsh when it gets reported to him. On the other hand, he has no sympathy for victims who strike back against their bullies.

As a result, the actual effect of his actions is to support bullying rather than prevent it. I'd love to see him actually called out on this. While Karl's pretty set in his ways, this is one thing he might actually learn to be a little better about.

Town/Ranch Relations

Karl has pretty strong views on how the ranch should be run, and feels like it has a strong impact on the town. I'd like to see him get in some arguments with BHR folks about the way the ranch accommodates LGBT, vegetarian, and Muslim students.

Sweet natured and giving, Rebekah Brook is a friendly face around the ranch. She worked the program as a teenager, and met Simon Brook when she was in college. They married and returned home, only for her to discover that he was, in fact, one of Brooks who owned the ranch where she had spent her adolescence. It wasn't amusing at first, but as time went on, it became a personal inside joke, and Bekah became a friendly face around the ranch, someone who understood the kids better than most -- including her husband -- and who would bend over backward to make the newcomers as comfortable as she could.

Bekah is generally considered to be one of the most approachable adults on the ranch. She is considerate, kind, and compassionate, and she tends to see the students for the people they are beneath their troubles. Of all the adults on the ranch, she's the last one to judge one of the students based on their troubles. After all, she's had her fair share of struggles as well.

She's currently pregnant, which limits her activities quiet a bit, but Bekah still does her best to keep up with the kids on the ranch and to help them as much as she can. Adjustment is a process as far as she's concerned, and most kids settle down once they have the opportunity to know that somebody on the ranch actually cares for them.

A very hands-on adult, Bekah goes out of her way to spend time with the kids in a personal setting, and she reaches out to them individually, particularly when they're struggling. Even on her toughest days, she eats with the kids, checks in on them in their dorms, and provides room for them to communicate with her. If they can't or don't want to communicate, she's more than happy to just hold space for them.

Bekah & Karl
How about for something a little bit different? We get all of these antagonistic plots for Karl, but you don't get a lot of opportunities for some healthier relationships, and I think that Bekah could be a good, healthy relationship for Karl. Obviously he didn't teach her, because she went to Brook Haven for high school. And she works on the ranch now, so he doesn't work with her or anything like that. Their interactions will mostly be limited to things like church or the grocery store, but I know that Bekah would like Karl because she likes everybody. It's logical that she would appreciate him in spite of his attitude. She'd treat that as just being the way that Karl is and that would be that, as far as she's concerned.

Annie & Karl
So not only is Annie basically the female version of Karl in terms of her homophobic homosexuality, but she also would have been one of his students. I imagine that he liked her when she was his student. She was dutiful, followed her mother's instructions to the letter, and worked her arse off before finally going into a scientific field in college (biology in her case). She'd have been a good student in his chemistry class, followed his rules, and probably spoken in a friendly way with him whenever they communicated. In short, I have no doubt that the two of them liked one another during high school. She's got some skeletons in her closet though, and I wonder if Karl might know some things about those?

I think that according to Nate's original shipper, they've only been in town about two years, since prior to that Ben and Nate were both in school out of state. But he'd have known her for the duration of her time in town for sure, and especially since her father took over the church. I really do like this idea Ben!

So.... I should tell you that there are now two churches in town, mainly because the original intention for Trinity was to be a somewhat more traditional church, resulting in us needing to add Fruit of the Vine (which has always been a thing on our other sites so it sort of made sense anyway). I figure that Karl probably attends Holy Trinity, which is where Liam attends. If not, that's fine, but even if they don't know one another from church, Karl would have taught Liam and West. He probably liked West better than Liam (straight-A student) back then, but either way Liam's always been a solid person, and there's no real reason that Karl wouldn't like him. So Liam wants to invite him to his barbecue, which he will probably be having around the time that we have enough townies for a town-based event to make sense. Hopefully this summer!

Back in January, Lauren's father married Nicole Brook, which was a big step for everyone, including Lauren. She, her sisters, and her dad had all lost her mother years before, but for Lauren, she'd give anything to be able to talk to her. Having Nic around is nice, but sometimes it's also painful, and Lauren's struggled to figure out how it is that she fits.

Essentially a Brook grandchild, she spends quite a bit of time on BHR, volunteering, especially since the (ridiculous) expulsion that's left her parents in the position to deem that homeschooling might be best.

Lauren's a sweet girl, but don't let that fool you, she's got enough sass to keep anyone on their toes. Including some of the Brooks. She's going to be present on Brook Haven, not only helping with ranch chores, but helping with the horse Tony gave her.

But what will happen when her biological father shows up, wanting to put a claim on her that he gave up years ago, contesting rights that the man she's only ever even known as a father isn't *right* for her, now that her biological mother is deceased?

Lauren & Karl
Not sure which church Karl goes to, but if he happens to go to the more traditional one in town, then he's probably a familiar face of this girl. Since he's been in the town for "forever" (excuse Lauren, please), he would have known her since she was little. I know Devin's brought up her Dad's barbecue, so even if she doesn't see him at church, she'll see him there as a family friend.

I think these two could have neat interactions with one another, in part because Lauren has no real reason to be intimidated by him. She isn't in high school and her dad likes him. The fact that he's Karl might even be endearing to her, which is a neat take on things. <3

Levi & Karl
TW: racism By now, I'm sure you've picked up on the fact that I just love Karl. He definitely makes my favorites list on this site! I think a thread between these two could definitely be interesting and a ton of fun to play. Veiled racism could be a lot of fun to play with, especially as the tension grows the longer it goes on.
