Seth has blonde hair and blue eyes, and he dresses comfortably. He likes wearing cardigans, hoodies, sweatshirts, and jackets but it mostly depends on the season. He is 5'10" (1.78 m), and usually feels more intimidated around people taller than him at first. He gets his hair cut at a normal barber shop, and is always groomed unless he is having a rough time. He doesn't like facial hair so he doesn't plan on growing a beard or mustache or anything like that anytime soon.
Seth is very insecure, but he puts his confidence in others and often has high hopes in them instead of for himself. He always puts himself down in his head. When people compliment him, he either will think they are insulting him or try to kind of convince them he's not that great. Seth also lies sometimes for no reason over small, trivial things. He doesn't know why.
He gets tongue-tied easily, especially when intimidated. Seth has a speech impediment, and it shows when he starts to talk too fast, but he has learned to control it. He has a fear of public speaking because of it, but he doesn't mind his speech impediment nearly as much as he used to.
He feels the need to protect people that are shorter than him, and finds it easier to talk to them instead of the people taller than him. He just feels more comfortable around shorter people. With them, he is much friendlier and outgoing.
Seth was born in 1997 to Carla and Jaden Decker. He learned nearly everything a baby should at the right time (crawling, walking, smiling, etc) except for talking. Most babies learned how to start formulating words at around one, but he didn't start formulating them until two, which got his parents kind of concerned. While he was 2, his parents had another child, a girl named Sadie. Seth absolutely loved Sadie since the moment he laid eyes on her, and always tried to help his parents out with taking care of the baby.
When Seth was three and Sadie was one, their mom, Carla, died by a tragic fire that occured at her workplace. Seth was extremely upset, and for a while he was completely terrified of fire and anything related. When his dad explained that his mom was in a better place, Seth felt much better but still felt kind of sad about it.
When Seth first entered kindergarten, most of the other kids would make fun of his stuttering. A girl named Jenna would always stand up for him, and she would constantly remind him that he had to stand up to the bullies on his own. They became really good friends, but Jenna did not go to the same school as him after that, so they did not stay in contact at all.
In second grade, Seth's dad got remarried to Angela Chambers. Angela was extremely sweet to Seth and Seth loved her as he did with his own mom. He pretty soon started calling her mom and it just fit for him. Angela started teaching him to control his speech problems, and they spent a lot of time together just bonding over the simplest things.
Throughout elementary school, some kids would pick on him because of his speech problems, but mostly just the immature ones. Pretty soon everyone just got used to it and didn't comment on it anymore, much to Seth's relief. He spent a lot of time practicing on speaking, and he got great results.
In high school, Seth had become much better at speaking and did not stutter nearly as much as he used to. In 2015, he graduated and made it into the Barfield Institute of Science and Technology, but unfortunately the college closed down so he had to transfer to Barfield Community College. He still lives with his family. He and his sister are also pretty close, and he is constantly looking out for her, making sure she doesn't get into any trouble.
Carla Decker: Seth's birth mom. She died in a fire when he was 3, which he was devastated about. After realizing she was in a better place, he is not as upset and torn about it, but he still misses her deeply.
Jaden Decker: Seth's dad. Seth and Jaden have gone through some rough times together, but they have always given each other emotional support to keep going.
Angela Decker: Seth's step mom. Seth loves her just like he did his own mother. She taught him about how to deal with his speech impediment and shares a lot of interests with him, such as comic books and baseball.
Sadie Decker: Seth is older than his little sister by a 2 years. He cares about her so much and is always checking up on her to make sure everything is alright. He is pretty over protective which annoys her sometimes, but she knows he does it because he oves her.
Seth has a little circle of friends he prefers to hang out with, but he will talk to anyone.
