Chad is a rather tall guy when compared to his best friend Victoria, who he hangs out with far too often. He has dark brown hair that he tries to keep in a somewhat mussed, yet nice look. He remembers when he used to have these awkward bangs when he was younger, and he wants nothing to do with those ever again. As for fashion, Chad isn't really into that all that much. He prefers to wear jeans and a t-shirt or button up. He prefers to be comfortable, which is why he wears this instead. He also likes to blend in with a crowd rather than stand out with fashionable, flashy clothing choices.
Chad is a very introverted person, not really one for socialization. Whenever he does try to talk to others, he'll sometimes start to stutter or play with hands, two nervous habits he's always had. Luckily, his job allows him to mostly spend time by himself outdoors or in a lab away from most other people. Sure, he has to work alongside his coworkers, but he's alright with that. Along with that, Chad is very practical and perceptive, always noticing the small details in the world. He can also be very fast-moving and impatient, always getting annoyed by how slow everything is. He wants things to be done quickly and he doesn't really care much about living in the moment - he's always looking ahead to the future. He can also be straight-forward, rarely caring for other people's feelings or emotions. He says exactly what he thinks and feels, no matter how rude it can be.
Chad was born in London, England as the second son to Carter and Zoe Vasquez. His father had lived in the city his entire life since his parents had moved there before he was born, but Chad's mother was from the United States. The family lived in London until Chad was six when they decided to move elsewhere since Zoe had a new job opportunity in a smaller town. After settling in their new home, Chad's father also got a new job for a small logging company. It was mostly just a temporary job, but after a year of working there, he began to really enjoy it. Life was going well for the small family of five. However, an accident one day at Carter's job ruined everything for the family. He had been killed deep in the forest while logging and was unable to receive any immediate help. Zoe went into a deep depression, unable to take care of her children or do anything, really. She even had to quit her job. Carter's father took the family in to take care of the children and his daughter-in-law until she got better.
When Chad was about twelve years old, his mother began to slowly feel better with her medications. She also decided she wanted to move back with her family and let her children get to know their maternal grandparents and family. They packed their belongings and moved to Lebeaux. Chad and his siblings didn't really like their new home and how completely different everything was. It all felt strange to not be back home in England. They soon got used to it though. Chad began school at Lebeaux Preparatory. He never really talked to anyone else in his classes and really only had two close friends - and he wasn't even that close to them.
After graduating high school, Chad attended Barfield Institute of Science and Technology in Barfield. He majored in geology since he had always wanted to be a geologist. Plus, it just seemed like the perfect area for him to work in. After graduating BIST, he started looking around for jobs. He found a position at Amarok Montagnes National Park in Blackwood Mountain. The park had been around for many years and covered most of the small mountain range known as Amarok Montagnes, which is obviously how the park got it's name. After getting the job, he found an apartment in Blackwood and moved in there. After finding out that one of his high school friends, Victoria Carrero, was also working at the park as a historian, they decided to move in together since he had an extra room in his apartment. The two got closer at work and definitely were able to be best friends. Chad has only been working at the park for about two months, but he really does enjoy his job.
Chad's father, Carter Vasquez, died almost twelve years ago, leaving behind his three children and wife. It had been a work related accident at the logging company when one of the trees fell and crushed him. Chad had only been ten when this happened and it completely devastated him and his family. Chad's mother, Zoe, was completely devastated and heartbroken, unable to take care of her own children for a while. Carter's father took the children in to take care of them until she got better with the right depression medications.
Chad is also the middle child of the three. His older brother, Michael, is only about two years older than Chad and went off to college in the UK. The two brothers have always been very close to each other and Michael going to college so far away really made them miss each other. Chad's younger sister, Naomi, is three years younger than him. She currently attends Desmond College of the Arts in Miduna Beach. The two of them were also rather close to each other.
Victoria Carrero is Chad's roommate and best friend. She works as a historian at the park which is where they actually met and became friends.
Most people don't really realize it when they first meet him, but he's actually really gay. He doesn't really go around flaunting it because he doesn't feel the need to - plus, he doesn't really care if people know or not.
He's also asexual. He's had sex a few times, but it was mainly just to see what it was like. He doesn't really have a strong desire for the activity. He's more into the relationship aspect of things.
Okay, so it was like a totally tough decision to get rid of him bc omg feeeeelz and precious baby too good for this world. However, I decided it was time for Chad to go. I really love rping him and love his character a lot, but like idk. It was weird.
Basically, in my lovely headcanon, he and Tristan were still seeing each other (even tho Tristan went inactive. it still happened.) They started dating a few months after their first "date" because Tristan was like, "no i can't be interested in guys" but he was. After dating for a few years, they got married and adopted like a baby boy and a few years later a baby girl. How cute. The end.
