Character Backstory

Basil Cartwright, born and raised in Allerdale, son of Alicia and Benjamin Cartwright. His father has been a dock worker for longer than Basil was alive. Their son, takes after his mother more than his father, with his red hair, freckles, but he has his fathers jawline and eyes.
Basil was as studious as time permitted him in primary and secondary schools, often times taking days off to help his father work the docks. Basil wasn't the top of his class by any stretch, but he wasn't near the bottom either. Often times he just skirted by with passing marks.

He was always awkward around kids his own age, not sure how to act around them, what to say, what to do. The few times he did join in the games he ended up embarrassing himself, he'd freeze on the football field, kick the ball to the other team. His anxiety drove him almost to the point of tears.
Basil often times went to help his father or one of his father's friends at the dock to make a bit of extra money for the family. They never went without, but some days it was a near thing. Basil had been around the docks and the people who worked there from a young age, and was a fixture whenever his father had to run errands.

It was about four years ago when his father finally bought his own boat and started his own small scale fishing enterprise. It was expected for Basil to join him of course. He knew down somewhere he'd never had the chance to go off to University. But he had wanted to. Although he did take up reading in earnest. Whenever he had a snatch of free time, or he thought the lines were clear he would read a few pages.
Basil's daydreaming about going to Uni among other things, lead to a rising of tensions between himself and his father. With lines being tangled, poor hauls, equipment failure, and even one incident ending up with losing their entire days catch. More than one night Ben Cartwright came home stinking drunk. His behavior and attitude toward his loves ones had changed. He was terse, melancholy, and more liberal with his insults. Little more than a year after his father had started his own enterprise Alicia, Basil's mother left. She left no note on her whereabouts, no indication where she might go or if she would ever be back.

It was after the investigation into the disappearance of his mother ,two years after Alicia left, Basil convinced both himself and his father he was going to go back to school. Basil moved out the following week. He still works with his father on the fishing rig, but he splits his time between campus and work. And trying to find his mother.
