Chip was presumably born and raised in Millwood, Pennsylvania. He was always interested in film which led him to accept a job with The Orpheum, the local second-run movie theater. He also attended Millwood High School, where he shares a film class with his co-worker Tabby Haworthe. The pair had been friends for a while, and he secretly harbored an unreciprocated crush on her.
Chip is a teenager with a tall, lean build and perfectly cut dark brown hair. He has brown eyes that are set behind thick lashes. He wears casual clothing with a hint of color, typically a colorful shirt paired with worn-out jeans.
