Name:Thackery McKenning [[Original Character]]
Birthdate:Oct 30
Location:New York, New York, United States of America
Thackery McKenning

     At forty-three years young Thackery has come a long ways from his young adult years. Born in a small town in Northern Maine. He was always a bit of a wild child and he only became worse in his teen years after the passing of his father. It was then that he became involved with the 'underground' culture of homosexuality. Living out most of the late eighties and early nineties in some of the grungiest bath houses and bars you could imagine.

It was during a coke fueled bender that he realised that perhaps this wasn't the sort of life he wanted to live and he decided to take an offer to live with someone he'd met recently. He packed up his life to move to New York City hoping for a change. It didn't quite work out the way he wanted but was able to apply for college, to which he was later accepted.

      He floated around school for a bit until he decided to use an ability he'd had since he was a child and his subsequent passion for history. He majored in history and minored in teaching. He taught high school for quite some time until he was diagnosed with AIDS after falling quite ill one summer. He left teaching high school for some time, going back to school, and once he graduated he accepted a teaching position at NYU where he's been ever since. There he primarily teaches American History, but also teaches a few other history related classes now and again.

After school, and a fairly steady career, he calmed down some. Not perfect, but certainly better than he once was. In 2006 he adopted his first child, Chloe, who is currently 13 years old. He had always known he had wanted kids and figured it was better late than never and two years later he adopted his second child, Genevieve. He also has two dogs, Lexi and Horace.

He currently resides in a three bedroom flat in the upper east side. Which might be a little too small for it's own good sometimes, especially with his pre-teen daughter, but as far as he's concerned his life is pretty close to perfect aside from that.
