From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Weary is 18 years old and from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
He has had an unhappy childhood: he is not popular in Pittsburgh because he's a stupid bully.
Weary likes to attach himself to people even less popular than him, pretend to be friends for a while, and then beat the crap out of them.
He has done this over and over again.
Weary's father, a plumber, collects torture instruments and weapons.
He once gave Weary's mother a working thumbscrew as a paperweight and a lamp with a model of the Iron Maiden of Nuremberg as its base. The Iron Maiden was a medieval torture instrument, a human-sized hinged metal cabinet shaped like a woman on the outside and lined with spikes on the inside. It had a drain in the bottom for blood.
