Charisma, mixing drinks, getting secrets out of people, manipulating.Personality:
Always ready to offer a wry smile and a wink with every cocktail, shot or mix he serves up, Neal carries himself with a playful confidence. He has a quick wit and a smooth tongue and combined with his easy manner and charming smile, presents himself as a cheeky, but always friendly bartender. He always has time for a chat and is quite willing to be the quiet listener as much as the casual comedian.
But all this is not without it's point. In the melting-pot of high-roller characters, scandalous stories and machiavellian motivations that is the Moulin Rouge, Neal uses his charisma to feed his web of information. A sharp thinker, he is fond of using his unassuming position to impart some small influence on the people of the prestigious club. A suggestion over a third, fourth or fifth complementary drink is one that has some affect, as is advice given in the guise of friendly concern. While his subtle flattery and flirting with the girls has led him to some uncharged services...
History and Notes:History:
His small town home was never where Neal's heart was. Nor was school, or the local baseball team, nor any youth group you'd care to name. No. As a young boy, he was always attracted to the bright lights and spectacle of the big cities. Running away at sixteen with all the money he had saved or stolen, he headed straight for the Big Apple to pursue his dreams of prestige and importance. The high life.
Of course, things were never as easy as they looked in the movies and so Neal spent most of his early years scrounging out a lifestyle in share houses and hastily rented apartments. Without much in way of an education, he took to working night shifts in bars, clubs and even brothels. It was here he realised the importance of charisma and here he honed his while building up a phonebook of I.O.U's, helpful contacts and people with information. Using these skills and friendships enabled him to land jobs in the more glamorous parts of town and soon enough, Neal managed to settle down in a nice apartment where he frequently brought girls.
As the economy of the world leaned more on the red-light industries, Neal followed the advice and business card of some rich customer and landed himself a dream job at the Moulin Rouge, where he revelled in the opulence and influence. Finally he was getting somewhere.
In his time here he, the young man has strived to prove himself valuable despite his age and was quick to put his finger on the establishment's pulse. Now a trusted member of the staff (and one always open to sharing some gossip), Neal relishes his position of small influence and large information. But for all his attempts at manipulation, Neal is never one for the spotlight, preferring to use his backstage seat to watch the drama's unfold onstage.Notes:
Though he is a largely benign figure, Neal is always seeking to elevate himself into some position of power within the Moulin Rouge. But he has yet to find a good opportunity to do so.
