Mitchell is a wheelchair-confined 15-year-old. He has tightly-curled ginger hair and light ginger freckles peppered across his face. He cannot speak, so he uses a special system of graphical symbols with matching words as a means of communicating his needs and desires. Mitchell can use the bathroom with assistance and the appropriate aids, though he does have the occasional accident. Mitchell endears all those who meet him and get to know him better, even without the ability to talk normally. He is often described by his peers as being a “lovely little boy” with a “magical” kind of captivating charm which can soften hearts and minds.
