Royal H. August was the second born child of Glint and Hestia August. The family wasn’t extremely rich or special in any particular stances, if you just looked at them among the other District 1 families you wouldn’t single them out as one of the weirder ones, the most notable thing about them from first glance was that they mad. They didn’t have very notable jobs, either. It’s like hearing that your friend works at a Starbucks, you don’t think much of it, if you had any thoughts about it at all. When Roy’s older brother came along, it didn’t change all too much. His brother was respectful to an extent, and wasn’t the worst in school either, after having extracurricular activities that Glint and Hestia signed him up for since he was seven.
When Roy was born, his parents hoped he would be just as talented as his brother, preferably more talented, taking in account that his older brother was just above average. So, from a young age, he was signed up for acting classes, and he loved it. Roy loved getting to pretend to be anyone he wanted, and as he started to grow older, that love only continued.
He became a bit of a theatre kid. Roy didn’t have much of a clue about social cues, instead being that odd kid who you couldn’t really talk to without being told off that you’re doing something, anything really, wrong. He was a perfectionist in many ways, wanting everything to be perfect, and this helped, and hurt. This made Roy a better actor, which was slowly becoming a career rather than an extra skill that his parents payed for him to learn. He payed more attention to the smallest things, which helped him become more self-critical, noticing when something needed to be fixed. But everything he wanted to fix needed to be perfect, he wasn’t one to take a liking to others failure.
When acting became more of a job that he did to make a little cash of his own after helping out his parents and going to school, he noticed he started getting rejected from various parts he auditioned for. But I’m better than all of them! Is what he thought at first. But after he had gotten over the initial frustration, he found the reason why he had been rejected. They didn’t think he worked well with others enough to be cast in these parts that required teamwork to work out. For his next few roles, he tried his absolute best to work well with others. And he did… decent. But right when he started getting back into the groove of things, the rebellion started.
He didn’t want any of it to happen. He certainly had nothing to do with the rebels, he actually favored the Capitol; he didn’t have any reason to hate them. But soon he found himself having to turn off all lights and hiding in the closet when someone notices Peacekeepers or Capitol officials coming through, and to pretend no one was home. He had always wanted to be an actor, and at this point was one, but he didn’t think his biggest role was to not exist. His parents weren’t taking any chances, they knew they were innocent, but with everything going on it was just safer to stay… hide.
After the longest time of his parents protecting him from all of the war that was going on, it stopped. With District 13 claiming to be defeated, war ceased, and the districts started to rebuild. Roy started looking for new plays and parts to play, to get back to the thing he loved, but he wasn’t lucky in finding anything. A year passed without having any roles, and when the chance came up to get back to the thing he loved, he didn’t ignore it. He needed this. If he was going to continue his dreams of acting, he had to take this chance. The thought of getting to play in something as big as a musical about the Dark Days only intrigued him more, and he intended to audition. He thought he had to make it. He needed to make it.
