Rough draft and kind of a tie in character to another character of mine
Name: Jonathan Melre'
Occupation: Soldier and aspiring law enforcement officer
Gear: A backpack that has a few essential items for survival like a pocket knife, bottled water, and flint and steel as well as an old photo album of his family and an old hand written leather bound journal in a secret language (the Book of Melre' details his family history in a code only his coven knows)
Biography:John was born in Salem Massachusetts nearly two decades ago as the youngest in his family with his Father, mother, and sister Emily. Similar to his sister John was brought up by a secret society of witches called a coven but unlike her has never expressed interest in the society, history, or lore of his ancestors. Instead John looked toward the future, with society's turning away from tradition and the coven's loosing their noterity and even their existance being thought of as myth he found little interest in his heritage. However men in the covens had always been seen as guardians and protectors and that aspect of his heritage did call to him.
From an early age John often read from the book fo Melre' about important figures who protected the family and entire societys through sacrifice and hard work. As a boy and even as a man he romantisized the conficts, seeing them and himself as a protector of the weak and innocent. Those dreams combined with a desire to get away from his heritage drove him to look at doing the same thing but for everyone in the world of man. Unfortunately John didnt get the brains in the family, that all went to his older sister.
Having little money, no experience, and no scholarships to help him with college instead John decided to enroll in the US army as an MP and further his education through them. It has been a year since then. His education in law has been doing fine and as an MP he's gained invaluable experience in the field that can only help him down the road. Yet when a year comes around he decides to take some leave and visit some friends across the country, it just so happens that he was in Oregon when the apocolypse happened. Now he finds himself worried as hes cut off from friends and family but at the same time happy that now he can stand alone against the evil of a post apocolyptic world, just like his ancestors of old.
