Water Strider (Gerridae) ((The 's make it italic))
Gerard Dae is a water strider (gerridae), and a student at Necotech college. He is in the oldest year and the only popular male student known to be friends with everyone in the year without being in a group.
Being the most popular boy in Nectotech means that Gerard gets along with practically everyone; whether it be BΣT, ΣΙΓ or anyone in-between. He is polite to everyone and makes it his duty to get to know them personally. Making him one of the most approachable students to ever set throughout the year. Gerard prides himself on his nice attitude and the way he acts around other people, having a quirky awkwardness about him but still being able to show the confidence he needs
He, however, holds a weakness. Gerard has been shown at times to think that popularity is about the only thing he has going for him and tends to believe that the people who claim to be his friends only do so for attention. This is why he spends most of his life attempting to fit in or to please others, and easily feels threatened by other male characters whom he deems to possess talents that favour his own and is why he doesn’t take too well to the main trio at first.
