There are a lot of orphans who have made The Island their home. These are the modern kids. They live together, play together, and sometimes fight together (though they always make up later). They all have a wide variety if interests and came to The Island in different ways.
Adalyn Grace Hopkins – She is the oldest of the orphans so far, though she really isn’t the mothering type, Evangeline is much better at that. Instead, Adalyn spends her time playing her guitar and singing and dreaming of one day being in a band and playing onstage. She is always trying to get the other kids to join her, but they aren’t very interested, though, they do like hearing her play and enjoy singing along to their favorite songs.
Evangeline Joy Hopkins – Evangeline loves sewing dresses. She loves creating the most beautiful dresses to wear, and someday she hopes to create her own couture label. For now she help Mrs. Walker at her dress shop. There she ends up helping sew the simple everyday dresses that the women of town need. Which may be slightly boring, but it still does need a lot of skill and hard work.
Ashley Taylor Hopkins – Ashley doesn’t really like people. The only exceptions are her twin brother, Jack, and her best friend Suze. Other than them she doesn’t really talk to other people, ever. She is really smart, and someday would probably become a scientist, she does love to study nature. Most of the time she can be found listening to metal music really loud and reading manga, sometimes she draws.
Jack Tyler Hopkins – Jack is not like his twin sister, Ashley, because he actually like other people. He has a friendly dog named Lucy, and they tend to walk around town together, talking to anyone around. He loves geeky stuff, Sci-Fi, and computers. He doesn’t really know what he wants to do, sometimes he wants to be a writer, sometimes an engineer, sometimes a computer designer, most of the time he doesn’t want to be anybody in particular, just himself walking around town with his dog.
Katarina Hopkins – Katarina loves horses. She thinks about them all the time. She draws them, reads about them, plays with them, and someday she dreams about owning one and riding it everyday. However, she is an orphan and has no way to make money, so she cannot buy a horse. One day, she and Lavina went to hunt for a unicorn so that she could get a horse, and she befriended Brianne. Ever since then, she regularly goes to the Larsons’ farm to help with the horses there.
Lavina Hopkins – Lavina isn’t actually an orphan. She was born in a little village in India, shortly after she was born her mother died. Lavina was raised by her father who worked very hard to give Lavina the best in life. After she decided she wanted to be a docter, her father found an opportunity for her to study in the U.S. While traveling to America, her ship was shipwrecked and she washed up onto The Island. The people there have welcomed her with open arms and provided her with the education she wanted. While she loves The Island and all the people on it, someday Lavina plans to return to India to find her father and live with him.
