it wasn't that he had a bad childhood. in fact, he grew up with a relatively normal family in a relatively normal city. his parents were loving, and treated him well. the only thing that threw ezra king for a loop was his older brother. the two were close in age, but it was obvious who the family favorite was. his brother was charming, hilarious, good-looking. and ezra was just...awkward. painfully awkward. he remembered going through high school as the class wallflower. his brother, however, ruled the school with an iron fist. he was everything ezra wasn't, and supplied everything ezra lacked. ezra was the underdog, carefully walking through life as if there were eggshells under his feet. it wasn't until he was fifteen that his father introduced him to his first drum set, paying for private lessons that gave his anxiety-ridden son something to express himself with. his brother took up guitar and of course stole the spotlight by exposing his clean vocals, and after a few years the brothers built up a rock 'n roll band that made it big. however, there's always a twist to these stories. ezra had been roped into smoking at the age of sixteen, and with smoking comes lighters, and with lighters comes fire. fire became his obsession. it became his ultimate release. he continues to keep this secret under wraps, and would never admit that he had been responsible for a few wawa's going up in flames as they passed them on the bus ride to their next concert venue. along with this secret comes another; filled up with resentment towards his brother and the band that he controlled, ezra started up a side project under the stage name "xander fly". in this project he writes and plays everything himself, and also sings. he has managed to keep everything a secret for now, hoping that he soon will be able to swoon the girl of his dreams with the pretty things he sings about her.
