10: Klein – ‘Bittersweet Symphony’

Alex Klein (Adult), Rhys Klein (Child), Gavin Klein (Child)

Gavin Klein was an odd child.  He liked talking to himself–the kind done in the middle of a room, sans mirror–which freaked his older brother and father out quite a bit.  Still, he had inherited his father’s natural charm and so it always seemed less strange than it should be.

He was friendly.  He loved to talk.  It just didn’t always have to be at someone.

9: Klein – ‘Adia’

Camilla Klein (Young Adult), Alex Klein (Young Adult), Rhys Klein (Child), Gavin Klein (Baby)

Camilla didn’t stick around for long after Gavin’s birth.  She took a month before immediately heading off on her tour, leaving Alex to care of the newborn on his own.  Not only did he have to care for Gavin, but he also had to handle moving on his own, too.  They had bought a house just outside of Aperture, in the same neighborhood as his father.

The break gave them some much needed space, but Alex wished that Camilla would take her maternal duties more seriously.

8: Steel-Klein – ‘Darkside’

Clark Klein (Vampire), Morrigan Hemlock (Vampire), Asha Steel (Adult), Emma Steel (Child), Julian Steel (Toddler)

It had taken a great deal of time and patience, but Clark finally managed to get through to the ancient vampire.  Morrigan had never faced such a cunning mortal before.  He’d not only tricked her out of her gift, but he’d somehow convinced her that aiding him was in her best interest.

“Sell tickets.  It’s going to be quite the show.”

8: Klein – ‘Everything Counts’

Camilla Klein (Young Adult), Alex Klein (Young Adult), Rhys Klein (Toddler)

Camilla Klein was not what you’d call a ‘natural mother’.  Her son would be entering the school system soon and she was still battling with motherhood.  She just didn’t have the patience for it.  She had tried to get involved, but it was just difficult.  Maybe when Rhys was older, she’d be better at it, but right now?  He’d just have to be happy that she was around at all.

7: Klein/Steel – ‘Enjoy the Silence’

Clark Klein (Adult), Asha Steel (Young Adult), Emma Steel (Baby)

“This had better be brilliant, Patrick.  I’m not much of a morning person.”

Clark Klein had not been amused when Patrick McMaster called him in the early am and told him he was coming over.  By the time Clark got to the front door, Patrick was pulling up in some ridiculous ice cream truck.

“Oh, I think you’re going to like what I’ve got chilling in the back.  We’ll have to be quick, though.  It’s waking up.”

7: Klein – ‘Two Princes’

Camilla Novak (Young Adult), Alex Klein (Young Adult)

Camilla Novak was not a saint by any means.  She was technically a ‘good person’, but that definition was vague and open to interpretation.  She was really only worried about herself.  The people around her were like planets orbiting her, the center of the universe.  They were there to make sure her life was interesting and to love her.  Camilla was definitely deserving of love.

6: Novak 2 – ‘Heartless’

Camilla Novak (Young Adult), Alex Klein (Young Adult)

Camilla Novak, more widely known as ‘Cammi Wylde’, was a pop sensation.  Her smaller shows were selling out, she was getting offers to open for big acts, and there was even talks of ‘Cammi’ having her own show at the stadium.  Her career was moving faster than she could almost keep up with.  It was an endless blur of shows, fans, signings, and fleeing the paparazzi.

She loved every minute of it.
