"How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television?
When is the last time any of us REALLY worked to get something that we wanted?
How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED?
The world we knew is gone.
The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility.
An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled,
No Grocery Stores,
No Mail Delivery,
No Cable TV.
In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start living."
-Exert from "The Walking Dead" Comics, Robert Kirkman.

On day one of the outbreak, Henry was alone in his parents' house, his dad was working, and his mom was shopping. Henry met his first walker when he was walking with a friend. When the walker turned to look at the two people, Henry told his friend to run back to the house, so they both did, but Henry's friend wasn't fast enough, resulting in the walker biting her. Henry did not look back, he just kept running, leaving his friend to be eaten.

The best place he could go was his grandmother's house, it was in a remote location and was a ninety minute walk.

Name-L(I use a nickname)
Physical Appearance- https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSFrsfrqZajzksNC8A8MbgQ5OTjJFSlpmFmxn3ep12tYBZu-Kvz
Clothing-White longsleeve wool shirt. Blue jeans.
Personality-L often uses dramatic strategies to confuse his opponents and force their hand. He eats sweet things exclusively, and is usually seen eating fruit or cake, or drinking sweetened coffee or tea. L's behavior is also peculiar: he sits in an unusual position, and always wears the same outfit. He holds things extremely delicately, by corners, and has a habit of biting his thumb.
L is very intelligent, though his disheveled and languid appearance masks his great powers of deduction and many question his abilities upon viewing him. L tends to second-guess everything he is presented with, and is extremely meticulous and analytical. He is good at deceiving his opponents, and is willing to take drastic measures to solve a case. He is also shown to have a dry sense of humor, and isn't above making sarcastic remarks to people. Although he tends to be polite.
Biography-He also has several quirks, such as preferring to crouch rather than sit, eating only sweet foods (like desserts, candies and fruits) and holding items by using only a thumb and a finger. He is often seen arranging objects and very intently stacking, or in other ways playing with, his staple food items. L is almost always encountered while performing actions that are considered inappropriate or rude in public. These actions/habits include biting fingernails, placing feet on furniture, slouching, chewing with an open mouth, talking with his mouth full, calling out personal observations that may offend others, etc.
Although he is often seen sitting and inactive, L retains a high athletic ability. L stayed in England for five years, and during that time he was the tennis champion in the England Junior Cup. He also has a knack for martial arts. L suggests that even though he eats only sweet foods, he remains underweight because the brain uses the most calories of any organ in the body. He also says that if he sits normally, his reasoning ability would drop 40%.
City/Location-Werever everyone else is mainly.
Inventory-Old fork, Notebook, Pen, Couple strawberrys wrapped with tin foil.
Theme Song-(I did not know what to post for this so go to youtube and look up, Nugget Biscit.
I'll accept, but as a side-note, the brain using the most calories wouldn't be a thee-sable reason as to why he's skinny. It's more than likely his high metabolism that keeps him the way he is. Metabolism is the function of breaking down stuff, with a slow metabolism, foods & other materials would take longer to break down, with a high metabolism, materials will be broken down in a much faster process.
