Everett is the firstborn son of the Collier family. For a blissful few years, he was doted on as the only child. Unfortunately, he was soon stripped of this with the birth of his younger brother. With the addition of a baby, Everett's position of favor was compromised, and even at such a young age, he strove to be seen as the better and favorite child.
In school, he exceled. He recieved perfect grades and the praise of all his teachers. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough for his family. His brother was just as successful and it seemed with less effort, or at least as Everett saw it. His skill didn't seem natural, but instead he worked steadily. His desire was not to be the top among his peers or to outdo everyone, but simply to do better than his brother.
With the birth of Camden, the goal moved out of sight. It was obvious that Camden was favored beyond anything Everett could achieve. At that point, he didn't know how to do any different, so his competitive ways kept up.
After high school, Everett was chosen to attend the Ananda Chakrabarty Institute, the top medical school. It was there that he finally began struggling. Living away from home lifted the pressure he had felt to strive for success. Although he passed his courses, he didn't excel for the first few years. It was during his third year that his drive was renewed, but it was too late to reach the top of the class. After graduation, he wasn't able to get into the highly competitive gene therapy or top surgical programs. Instead he worked consulting for AnooYou, a glorified spa company that worked on selling eternal youth. He works doing skin transplants and, more frequently, cosmetic injections.
It was in college that he met Holly. She had the drive he should have had and took pity on him. After three months of near daily tutoring lessons from her, Everett spontaneously proposed. Even he was shocked when she accepted. Proudly, he paraded her home and showed her off to his brothers and parents. Finally he had done something right. Here was a beautiful woman who agreed to marry him. Love? Who knew what that was. The marriage managed to last five years before Holly filed for divorce. He wasn't the man she thought he was. He was a disappointment to her, just like he was to his parents. Everett has wasted her time, wasted the prime years of her life.
Everett was devastated by the divorce, not because of any attachment to Holly, but an attachment to the status the marriage had given him. Without a high powered xenotransplant surgeon attached to him, Everett was dropped back down to his medical reject status. For several years, he sunk into a whiskey stupor. He made unregistered trips to the Pleeblands, spent time in bars far below those with questionable reputations.
It was his father's threat of disowning Everett that straightened him up. With a few financial strings pulled, he was given a supervisory position, overseeing the new doctors, the new Everetts who came in to work at AnooYoo.
Everett resents his job and regrets having slacked off. He strives to get a job with higher prestige, to live up to the achievements of the rest of the Collier family. Most importantly, he hopes to get promotions more often than his brothers.
