Glasses EditMint Gumm is a senior at Sweet Amoris, transferring previously from a Reform School. She is mostly well known for her large glasses.
Mint has long curly pastel mint hair, with light green eyes. She has a pear-shaped body, with slight chub, though she likes her hips. She has large round glasses, they tend to hide her eyes many times, she uses them as a way to hide what her eyes tell. She can be found always wearing something red, whether it be red lipstick, eyeshadow or a fully red outfit. Her style is more modern and has a pop culture feel to it, she uses this to come off as cute and cool, wanting to hide any insecurity she may give off with her personality.
The first thing most people notice about Mint is her out worldly kind behavior that comes off a little too perfect and kind. She doesn't seem to act close to anyone, and will automatically try to ignore someone if they see her make a big mistake. When becoming her friend they notice that she isn't exactly an amazing communicator as first thought, in fact instead of words she is usually rough with those she likes. ( a playful jab, or semi-crude behavior, etc.) She is actually very shy and hot-tempered, showing easily when she gets into fights. However, the more you know her, the more you see she acts through her actions much more than her words. She has an artistic soul and this is the biggest giveaway of what she is thinking. She is a cold person to warm up to, yet is a true and loyal friend.
Mint is the second oldest of the three siblings she has, the youngest being Bubble, and the oldest being Frenchie. Her Mother divorced her real father when she was around 4 years old when he caught their house on fire. While at the time Mint didn't understand what exactly was happening, she had soon been taken from their little apartment complex to the mountains. However, it was only her and her brother remaining up there, while their mother worked as a small time waitress near there, while their older sister remained with a friends family. Her and Bubble were mostly isolated, their only interactions being with people, who usually, did not speak English at their mother's work. This isolation had affected Mint more heavily than Bubble, giving her major social anxiety and not a well understanding of how to properly communicate.
When Mint first went to an actual school most of her time was spent in the counselor's office, taking lessons on how to communicate with other students without either breaking down and crying or being violent. It took Mint 8 years to learn, however, she never quite got it down. Her elementary school life was not fun for her, though her older sister tried to make it better for her, while her brother would yell at anyone who tried to tease Mint for her inability to act normal.
It was in middle school when Mint started getting into trouble. While she may have been a good student academically, she was by no means a good student in behavior. While still going to therapy to try and fix her problem of social anxiety, Mint was getting into fights with boys who would sexually harass her. Despite her tries to report them, she was always put as someone who was lying, being that it was one against many others. She only had her brothers support at Frenchie didn't want to get involved at that time with all the drama Mint was causing. One day she had gone too far and broken a boy's leg, Bubble had gotten caught up and tried to get the boy to be quiet. In the end, Mint was expelled, and Bubble was suspended.
Mint's mother had remarried into a Japanese family around this time, which made her look very bad. Her new stepfather suggested that she go to a reformatory school to get straightened out, the mother, wanting to save face, agreed.
So for two years, Mint remained in a reform school, Bubble tagging along insisting he stay with his older sister. The reform school was hard, yet in this school, she had gotten into even more trouble, especially when she started dating Ink. Ink was a notorious gang leader who set her eyes on Mint, dragging her down a dark path. Mint got involved with drugs and alcohol, trying to ease the hatred and pain that Ink fed her, making Mint believe that her life was absolutely horrible. She would frequently skip class to hang out in dirty corners. During this time her brother, Bubble, had been sent to a rehab to help his addiction to meth, which had almost killed him. Leaving Mint alone in the reform school. When Ink dumped Mint to go after a new girl, Mint became heavily suicidal and had been cut off from her drugs too. Mint became heavily unstable and tried to commit suicide, failing to do so, she was sent to a rehab also. There she had met her current therapist, Dr.Lancer, who slowly helped Mint get back on her feet.
Mint then left and wanted to change. Along with her brother, her closest friend, they worked to become cool and likable, wanting to throw away their old selves. Mint stayed out of school for half a year, dedicating her time to studying once more. With her family's permission, when Mint had turn 17, for her Junior year Mint left her small island and went to France to go to Sweet Amoris.
