I’ve just realized that I have never really talked about Celsius’s “scar”. It’s quite short and simple - it’s his birthmark. However, he tends to tell people that it’s from being burned by hot grease as a kid. He does this just to see people’s reactions, and they never fail to disappoint.
As a kid, Celsius always thought that his Mãe left him and his Pai )because of his “ugly scar” and it didn’t help that Celsius was constantly alienated by the other kids because of his bizarre birthmark. Sometimes they would even tease him about it. Jude and Lucy were his only true friends as a kid. They never judged him because of his birthmark; after all, they were not raised to shun people’s idiosyncrasies, being the products of an interracial couple. Jude would “handle” the bullies, while Lucy took care of Celsius via cleaning cuts or sharing her lunch.
This all changed in high school. In high school, Celsius made a huge transformation. He was no longer the scrawny little kid with an unusual scar, abnormal hair, and a weird accent. He was now the 6-foot tall hot guy with cool hair, and a sexy scar & accent. So, naturally, everyone wanted to know him, friend him, and fuck him . However, Celsius didn’t let that change him. He remained loyal to the best buds and books that were always by his side. The same best buds that helped him to accept his unique birthmark.
