More family portraits! This time it's the Monroe Family!
Benjamin Monroe is an English teacher unlike any other. First of all, do NOT refer to him as "Mr. Monroe". Benjamin prefers to be called "Heavy B in the STREETS"; he raps in class, plays pranks on other teachers, has a penchant for scavenger hunts, tells the funniest jokes, and challenges students to push-up contests on a daily basis. Always sporting a dazzling smile, Ben's probably the friendliest guy you'll ever meet--and the greatest dad who's ever lived, according to Gemma and Elliot. At home he's even crazier, constantly playing games and finding fun new ways to do chores or help Elliot with his homework. His daughter is his greatest treasure; he protects her fiercely, and still blames himself for the trouble Chance made her go through. Not even Adam Kelley, apparently, can earn his trust--Benjamin doesn't want to risk Gem getting hurt ever again.
Katie Monroe is the epitome of a free spirit. Always acting on impulse, she's gone through numerous phases and fashions and fads; one minute she's bringing home a puppy that was just "begging to come home with me!", the next minute she's dip-dyed her curly blonde hair, and then the minute after that she's deciding to run a marathon, just for the fun of it. While she adores working as a kindergarten teacher, Katie's recently rediscovered her passion for art; her parents had discouraged her as a child to pursue a career in painting, but Adam's dreams of having his own gallery and studio inspired her. Although Mr. Monroe might not be the biggest fan of Gemma's boyfriend, Katie couldn't be any more supportive of their relationship.
Elliot Monroe was... a surprise addition to the family, that's for sure! Elliot dreams of being a professional ninja, and/or owning his own private McDonald's. He adores his sister more than anything in the world, and Adam's the big brother of his dreams!
And last (but certainly not least) is Gemma Monroe: a girl who STILL can't understand why she didn't inherit her family's trademark curly hair. She's a girl who's deeply in love. She'll do absolutely anything for anyone. She sees the good in everything, although sometimes it's hard for her to see the good in herself.
