Pierce is the only son in a family with five daughters. All Alphas, born to Alpha parents. He learned from a young age that his true feelings didn't matter to his parents, and he started masking how he truly felt, convincing everyone, even himself, that nothing bothered him. With two parents that never understood their children, or made efforts to be there for them, Pierce stepped up and became a surrogate father to all five of his sisters, even the two that are older than him.
His parents expected him to be better than his sisters, and that only spurred him on to make sure they all knew their accomplishments were something to be proud of. But it's worth noting that Pierce never had someone to be there for him. He always had to perform, act like everything was okay, and that bled over when he finally found his mate because he didn't know how to let out his real feelings.
