Personality: Independent and intelligent, Landon is serious about taking charge of his future and maintaining his status as a successful business owner. When it comes to his younger sister Kim, Landon can be overprotective and domineering. He doesn’t purposely try to be that way, but he can’t help but want what is best for her. Landon was always popular in school, labeled as the nice guy who also was a jock - the best of both worlds. When he isn’t busy working he surrounds himself with his group of friends, who enjoy partying and having a good time. Landon doesn’t fall in love easy but when he lets someone in, he’s in it for the long haul.
Biography: Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Landon was blessed with a loving family including a younger sister named Kimberly. His father Bill owns a Mercedes-Benz dealership in the city, while his mother Lorie is a stay at home mother and wife. His family was always well off financially, buying him and his sister almost anything their hearts desired. In high school Landon was well liked by his peers. He was a starter on his varsity basketball team and also a member of the drama club. Overall he was friends with everyone, being a genuine nice guy. College wasn’t much different for Landon. He followed most of his friends, including Devon Walsh, to the University of Miami where he double majored in business administration and accounting. Since he and Devon were both business majors, the two of them became even closer in college, even though Landon was originally closer with Devon’s brother Adam. When Adam skipped out on college and fell into the heavy party scene, Landon didn’t see as much of his close friend. Instead he was busy getting good grades at school and being president of his fraternity, Sigma Delta Phi.
College is where he met his beautiful girlfriend Ashley Taylor. They had a business law course together and hit it off almost immediately. Ashley wasn’t just gorgeous and built to perfection; she was also honest and smart. He revealed his plans of wanting to start his own beach bar in Miami after graduation. Ashley was more than supportive of his ideas; even offering some of her own ideas to help him get started. Starting his own business had been challenging in the beginning, but with Ashley by his side he felt like he could conquer anything. He eventually asked her to be a manager since he appreciated her good work ethic and intense drive to get things accomplished. When she accepted his offer, he was ecstatic. Working with her was nothing but pleasant, but once he hired Kirsten as a second manager, the tension in the air was so thick it could have been cut with a knife. He had to admit that Kirsten was flirtatious, but he needed another manager around to handle stuff around the club when Landon was busy. In order to bring in extra money, Landon got involved with a shady guy by the name of Eric Gallo. Eric made him promises that if he allowed illegal gambling to go on at his bar after hours, Landon would get a cut of the money. Although he always followed things by the book, Eric was very convincing and assured Landon that he was in good hands. It wasn’t like him to trust a complete stranger, but when it came to making extra money he was desperate. Taking a loan out to build his bar left him in great debt. Even though his parents offered to give him $50,000 to start his business, having too much pride he refused, stating that he wanted to make it on his own. Although business was decent, he still had that huge loan hovering over his head. Making extra money besides what the bar brought in would solve that problem. Only trouble was, could Landon trust a Mafia guy? Then again what other choice did he have, besides crawling to his parents for help?
