Early History

Theo was born biologically as a girl in Greendale, but identified as non-binary from a young age. He would later identify as a transgender boy. He was raised by an single father as it's unknown of what happened to his mother. However, through most of Theo's adolescences, he and father have been caretakers to Jesse Putnam who apparently snapped one day after an shift in the mines. Despite being friends with Harvey, Theo wasn't allow to tell him about Jesse since his father owns the mines and Theo's father knew that Harvey's father would denied any apparent wrongdoing. Theo then started attending Baxter High and found a good group of friends sticking by them. Despite his friends, he has endured bullying by members of the football team.

Physical Appearance

Theo is petite, standing at 5'1 and has bluish-gray eyes. Even as a young child, his haircut has been the one constant throughout his lifetime.

Personality

Theo is a young student at Baxter High and one of Sabrina, Roz and Harvey's best friends. Independent and courageous, Theo is on a journey to discovery an identity that can better define emotions, sensations and desires that characterize him, defying the binary gender norms of male and female. Theo's journey, however, is not at all easy and some more than others are willing to make it even more difficult. While Sabrina struggle with her witch nature, Theo is going through hell at school where football players are constantly harassing him for not fitting a specific idea of gender roles. For example, they lifted Theo's jumper to see if he had breasts or not. Physical and verbal abuse are part of Theo's daily life despite Sabrina and Rosalind's attempts to make things easier and Principal Hawthorne turning a blind eye. He is also facing a distressing situation at home where uncle Jesse, who always struggled with his own gender identity [2], became horribly ill after witnessing something at the Greendale Mines and Theo's father decided to send him to a mental asylum that triggered painful emotions in Theo. Although Theo is a human, supernatural events didn't cause much of a shock. Indeed, conversations with Nana Ruth but especially with his ancestor, Dorothea Putnam seems to have helped Theo discover new sides of his personal identity.
