Name:
Caiden Rory Williams.

Representative of:
Nova Scotia.

Gender:
Male.

Age:
Human: 19.
Historical: Found in 1497.

Brief personality:
Caiden’s got a strong, memorable personality with his boisterous laughter and wild smile. He’s enthusiastic about pretty much everything that he does, and he takes pride in his many talents. Nova Scotia is known for its fine arts, films, literature, and music, so naturally he has great talent in all of them. Though he’s talented, he doesn’t brag or rub it in other’s faces how great he is, but rather uses what he knows to help others improve. He loves who he is and he’s a proud Canadian of mostly Scottish decent, so he has strong ties to Scotland. When it comes to stressful situations, he’s quite laid back and doesn’t seem to take anything seriously. Unfortunately, he doesn’t open up much about what really does stress him, and it often leads to him bottling up his feelings. He hides his anxieties with a laugh and a smile, as he’d rather support others than stay fixated on himself.

He’s known to tease his family members and even close friends, taking joy in embarrassing them. Since he’s not easily flustered himself, it can often lead to him hurting the one he’s teasing without even realising it. Because he’s usually laughing and teasing, other’s emotions fly by right over his head, and he sometimes goes too far. Though when he’s serious, he can easily read the atmosphere, but that’s not often since he’s scared to be serious. He’s sort of a player more than a worker, so he’s often short on money, and has to ask his siblings for financial assistance. It causes him to sort of be somewhat of a leech, though he won’t ask the same person for money over and over again because he’d feel guilty in doing so.

When it comes to romance, Caiden’s a bit of a tease and a flirt to those he finds attractive. He might date said attractive person for a few months and then cut if off, floating between relationships since he hardly falls in love. However, if he were to truly fall for someone, he’d be persistent in trying to attain mutual feelings from the other. That case is extremely rare though.

Caiden spends most of his time around other people, since he hates being left alone. He might float between cities and provinces to visit different family members, as well as go out all the time to meet new people. When he is forced to be alone, he gets sort of depressed and lays in bed all days watching movies and reading books. If he’s alone for too long, it starts to sort of become a cycle where he doesn’t even want to get up to meet people if he’s given a chance. To get out of that cycle, he’d either have to find a way to force himself out of it or someone else will have to drag him out. This is extremely rare, as hardly anything can keep this rambunctious redhead away from having fun with others.

Brief physical description:
Since Caiden is mostly Scottish, he has a wild head of fiery red hair and bright green eyes. His skin is fair like that of a Scotsman, and he has a few faint freckles on his cheeks. He’s about 6’1” and he weighs 150 lb, and he’s got a lithe build and yet a toned body. One can often find him wearing glasses, as he’s got poor eyesight, though he sometimes wears contacts. His clothes can range from sporty to smart casual depending on how he’s feeling, but you can’t ever really find him wearing just jeans and a t-shirt.

Brief history:
The first peoples in what is now Nova Scotia were the Mi'kmaq, who belonged to a wider coalition known as the Wabanaki Confederacy, whose members were in turn part of the Algonquin-language family in eastern North America. The Mi'kmaq presence can be traced as far back as 10,000 years. They were hunters and traders and, because of their proximity to the ocean, skilled saltwater fishers. When the first Europeans arrived in the 16th and 17th centuries, Mi'kmaq territory stretched across all of modern-day Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, most of New Brunswick and westward into the Gaspé Peninsula of Québec — an area known as Mi'kma'ki. The Mi'kmaq established better relations with the French settlers than with the English.

Long before John Cabot made landfall in 1497 (possibly on Cape Breton Island), Norse adventurers may have reached Nova Scotia. Scores of other explorers and fishermen plied its coasts before Pierre Du Gua de Monts and Samuel de Champlain established Port-Royal in 1605 — the first agricultural settlement by Europeans in Canada, and the beginnings of the French colony of Acadia.
In 1621 King James I of England named the same territory New Scotland (or Nova Scotia, as it was called in its Latin charter) and granted the land to the Scottish colonizer Sir William Alexander. In the 1620s, the Scots established two settlements, but both were unsuccessful. Meanwhile a small but steady stream of immigrants continued to arrive from France for a new life in Acadia.
Armed conflict ensued between the French and British, and throughout the 17th century Acadia was handed back and forth between the European powers. The 1713 Treaty of Utrecht finally put an end to Acadia, transferring the colony — but not Île Royale (Cape Breton Island) or Île Saint-Jean (PEI) — to Britain. Aside from maintaining a small garrison at Port Royal, renamed Annapolis Royal, the British did little with Nova Scotia until 1749, when Halifax was founded as a military town and naval base on the shores of what the Mi'kmaq called the "Great Harbour." Halifax's purpose was to balance out the French military presence at the Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton.
The Seven Years War between France and Britain brought great change to Nova Scotia. British military officials feared the colony's large Roman Catholic Acadian population — despite its expressions of neutrality — would side with the French during the war. The result, starting in 1755, was the Acadian Expulsion, in which British forces rounded up more than 6,000 Acadian men, women and children, and dispersed them on ships to various American colonies. In 1758, as these traumatic deportations were still under way, Louisbourg fell to the British, precipitating the Conquest of Canada in 1760, and the ceding to Britain of Cape Breton Island in the Treaty of Paris that ended the war in 1763.

In peacetime, Nova Scotia prospered, with settlers arriving from England, Ireland, Scotland and Germany. Loyalists, both white and black, as well as former black slaves, also arrived following the American Revolution. During the early part of the 19th century the colony grew as a fish exporting, lumbering and shipbuilding centre, and Halifax emerged as an important merchant hub and a base for British privateering captains.

Starting in 1864 the Confederation question left a mark on the province. Nova Scotia's economy was closely tied, as were many families, to the New England states. The province’s prosperity relied on seaborne trade south to the United States and east across the Atlantic, and many did not relish the idea of setting up new economic and political links with the Province of Canada, or with a remote interior further west. Despite these fears the colony became one of the four founding provinces of the new Dominion of Canada in 1867; however, a strong anti-Confederate movement existed for many years, with some Nova Scotians flying flags at half-mast on 1 July.

In the 20th century the First World War stimulated the provincial economy with an increased demand for iron, steel, fish and lumber. The war also brought disaster in the form of the Halifax Explosion; and the war's end brought with it recession, which lasted for several years. Nova Scotia enjoyed good economic times again during the Second World War. Halifax became one of the major North American ports for the gathering of trans-Atlantic convoys, which carried munitions and other wartime supplies to Western Europe.

Since the mid-1950s Nova Scotia has struggled financially, and economic development has been one of the primary concerns for provincial politicians. The fishing industry — especially lobster and shellfish exports — has remained a mainstay of the economy, sustaining many coastal communities even through the collapse of cod and other groundfish stocks in the 1990s.

As manufacturing began its steady decline in the 1950s, coal mining and steel making continued in Cape Breton with the help of massive government subsidies, until the last coal mine was shut down in 2001. Its closure ended a way of life and left the Sydney Tar Ponds — the result of decades of coke oven effluent — as the steel mill's environmental legacy. In an effort to contain the contaminants, the waste was eventually buried, and Open Hearth Park opened on the site of the ponds in 2013.
Coal was also mined on the Nova Scotia mainland starting in the 19th century, and certain strip mining operations continue to this day. The Springhill mine was the site of three deadly disasters, the most famous being the 1958 underground earthquake, which trapped 174 miners and became an international news spectacle.

Offshore oil and natural gas production began in 1992, bringing new revenues and opportunities to the province, but was not the economic windfall many had hoped for. Economic uncertainty continues in the 21st century, with pulp and paper mills across the province closing down and many rural communities in decline as people move to the Halifax area for jobs primarily in government, universities, the burgeoning aerospace sector and the military. Since 2011, great hopes have been pinned on the opportunities that might arise from the awarding of a long-term contract to Irving Shipbuilding to construct 21 new combat ships for the Royal Canadian Navy. It is the largest military procurement in Canadian history.

Yes, of course. I could never hope to beat the original, but I can aspire to be the best Canadian Scotsman I can!
