Finny and Gene are an interesting pair of friends. Finny is very outgoing and always loves adventures. Finny doesn’t follow lots of rules but when he is caught he is good at talking his way out of trouble. Gene is more quiet and isn’t as outgoing as Finny. Finny pushes Gene out of his comfort zone to do things he wouldn’t normally do. Gene thinks: “The beach was hours away by bicycle, forbidden, completely out of all bounds. Going there risked expulsion, destroyed the studying I was going to do for an important test the next morning, blasted the reasonable amount of order I wanted to maintain in my life, and it also involved the kind of long, labored, bicycle ride I hated. “All right” I said”. Even though Gene would rather stay home and study and going to beach is very risky he still goes because its Finny asking him. I think Finny could ask him to do almost anything and Gene would do it. Gene was also very athletic and great in sports, “Right from the start, it was clear that no one had ever adapted to a sport than Finny was to blitzball.” Gene was better at academics he got very good grades but he wasn’t as athletic as Finny. They are both so different yet they are both good friends, they are inseparable duo.
