A huge part of Tony's personality comes from his older sister (by 9 years). She taught him to be driven, to love freely, and to never stop fighting. As long as she was around, they adored each other. Stella was definitely rough around the edges and didn't really show her love in conventional ways, but they were very close. She taught him how to play soccer, she cheered at all his games, and despite her emotional issues, one of the only things in the world that she really loved was her brother.
However, as soon as she had the money to get into college, Stella disappeared. Tony was only thirteen when it happened, and they haven't had any communication since then. For the most part, he's gotten over it, but she's still a huge part of him and he still misses her a great deal. He looks for her in everyone he meets.
Now, for the most part, you have free reign over Stella, but there are some things you need to take into account when you're deciding on her power, personality, relationships, et cetera.
Tony wasn't really around for the nine years that Stella was, when his parents would fight all the time (violently) and would take out their frustrations on Stella. Although she probably would have been glad that he didn't have to deal with that (she really did love her brother), the environment did a great deal of damage to her. She was very depressed and emotionally unstable, but she worked on bottling it inside. How that affected her exactly is up to you.
Her relationship with her father also could come into play. You can go one of two ways; she's flighty and hard to tie down like he was, so she took his side even though he walked out on her and her brother and mom, or she could despise him and take up for her mom. Anything goes here, but she probably wouldn't have been on neutral ground.
She would have needed a vice to turn to when she left. As to what that is (drugs, booze, sex, skateboarding), you get to decide. It would be preferable if it was something that she would want to hide from her younger brother.
Why she decided to start teaching, why she decided to do it at EOAS, and how she's going to talk to Tony for the first time is all completely up to you, or you can discuss it with me later on down the road.
Everything else is pretty much up to you. If you have any questions, you can refer to Tony's application (http://eoas2.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=mjrs&action=display&thread=75) or you can send me a message. :D
As far as play-bys go, the picture that I have is of Kendra Spears, but it's only important that the play-by fit the general description of pale with dark hair, blue eyes, and a thin "sporty" build. She should look like Tony. If you find someone that suits her personality/your vision of her better, that's great, but I suggest (if not Miss Spears) Ruby Aldridge, Anna de Rijk, Caroline Brash Neilsen, Kati Nescher, Anais Pouliot (it might be hard to find older looking pictures of her), Tatiana Coatliar, Miranda Kerr (this one is starred because hnng), and so on. If you need an avvy/post topper thing/icc icon, I would be more than happy to help you out.
