Caspar is misunderstood. Not just by everyone he associates with and everyone he's ever cared about, but by himself as well. For the longest time he thought superficial things would bring him the happiness he craved and fill in the gap in his life, but recently he's come to the conclusion that what's missing is much more than that. So he threw himself into trying to find what that was, who that was. He is determined to find himself, but what he doesn't realize is that it doesn't work quite like that. It might take him a while, but eventually he's going to realize it's not about finding himself, it's about creating himself. With the aid of many new friends, new enemies, and changes to his current life, he's going to come to the conclusion he's been after all along, it just might take a bit longer than he initially realized.
Joe has his life together, he's never been faced with having to define his life. He knew from day one who he wanted to be and how to get there, and he's worked constantly toward his goal ever since. He transferred to a school in a completely different country to make sure he could maximize his education, determined to get his life exactly how he planned it. What he didn't work into the plan though, was the whirlwind of confusion that flies into his life unexpectedly by the name of Caspar Lee.
