Harry has hair that is white, but was previously dark blonde. He has blue eyes that have started to look a bit foggy in his old age. Despite his age, Harry is in good shape and he isn't overweight, not underweight. He dresses smart, but he refuses to wear designer brands and only wears suits that are above his unusually low price range when it is a special occasion. Rita tells him that grey and neutral greens best suit his complexion, though he wears black, white and brown too.
Harry is your typical 'nice old guy', he is always really kind to people that he knows have good intentions and he always gives his complete and undivided attention to loved ones when they need it. He believes very heavily in equality and knows that his age makes him seem lesser to other people, even if he sees it as the opposite. Harry knows that he doesn't have an extremely long time left to live, so he very much lives the philosophy of 'sieze the day', by sometimes doing extreme things in case there's no tomorrow for him. His weakness is that one moment he's the kind, quiet old guy and then he's yelling excitedly at everybody that they should do something crazy like bike ride down a mountain. This is a bad thing because without realising it, he sometimes puts others in danger! Although if anything is super dangerous, his wife Rita will stop him.
Harry was born in Lebeaux to a family that wasn't poor as such, but not very rich at all. He started school, and although he wasn't academically amazing, he was still quite smart and after his schooling he managed to secure a position as an aged carer, although he later applied to be a carer for war veterans which he loved, and it also abled him to travel the world and live in different cities for up to three years with his wife Rita. After he retired ten years ago, he chose to settle for a peaceful life in Lebeaux with Rita.
Harry's life at school was quite simple; he was quite popular but not because he was mean, but because he was so nice and everybody could see that. When his grandchildren talk about the popular people at their schools - who are often gained their status by being nasty - he gets really confused, then reminds his grandchildren that being popular doesn't even impact your life later on; as long as you work hard and have a good time in school, you will have a good future.
Harry married Rita in the year 1964, when they were both twenty. Because she was from a richer side of town, her parents weren't supportive of the marriage, although his parents were so they got married and have never regretted it one bit. Despite a few very minor arguments along the way, Rita and Harry's relationship has been very smooth and even by seeing them, you can tell just how much they care about each other.
When Rita and Harry were 24, in 1968, they had a child who they called Sue. Now 38 years old, Sue has two daughters called Ellie, who is seventeen and Hope, who is thirteen. Sue divorced her husband John, because he assaulted on her a number of times, but Sue has full custody of both children. Harry would do anything for his Sue, Ellie or Hope.
Harry looks back on his life with no regrets (except maybe that he didn't learn how to drive a monster truck!); he married the woman of his dreams, did a job he loved and has one daughter and two granddaughters. His only worry is that John will come back for Sue.
Harry's parents came from the U.K. before Harry was born (when they were both 21) , although Harry has a bit of an accent because he grew up with his parents talking that way. His mum, Joanna Buttershaw died three years after Harry married his wife, Rita Buttershaw. Joanna died in a car accident and in the end it was concluded that she shouldn't have been driving anyway, because she was prone to sudden panic attacks. Harry's father, Albert Buttershaw didn't die until he was aged 83, when Harry was 61. Harry misses both his parents but know that they lived happy lives. He married his wife, Rita when they were both twenty and then had a child, Sue. Sue grew up and married a John Abrahms. She was with John for sixteen years, and even had two children with him, called Hope and Ellie. After a while, Sue revealed that John had assaulted her. John left when the older child, Ellie was 12 years old and the younger, Hope was 7. Sue has full custody over the two kids, and they are both a bit traumatised about their father, but they have learnt to move on.
Scott and Maurice: Him and the two are an inseparable gang, they always go out for drinks together and attempt to play golf together.
