Bio: Dylan lost his sight at a very young age. His body wouldn't absorb vitamin a so he ended up losing his sight. He wasn't a very healthy child at all to begin with, but over time, he began to grow stronger, only remaining with a few minor lingering issues. Growing up, he learned to make use of a walking stick, a guide dog and eventually, echolocation. It started off with him clapping to figure out how close something was to him and has evolved to a quiet clicker in his pocket. In high school, Dylan was severely bullied for his blindness, resulting in depression that lasted a few years. After high school, he perused writing, wanting others to disabilities to know it was possible to live a normal life like anyone else.
As a child, he never had the money to receive cataract surgery but as an adult, he has finally put enough aside to get it. He's just unsure if he should go through with it or not.

Quotes:
~ "I'm blind, not deaf and dumb. I can hear and understand you perfectly fine."
~ "Just because you're different to the majority, doesn't mean you have to live like a minority."
~ "I swear, you make one more blind joke and I'll start looking for your shins."
