Name: Ezekiel "Zeke" Sanders
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
Personality: Zeke is a walking example of the phrase 'blows hot and cold'. Easily distracted, Zeke has spent practically his whole life drifting from one interest to the next. He considers himself a jack-of-all-trades because he's spent years studying a multitude of subjects, from astronomy to engineering to medicine to music; however, due to his flighty nature, he's never gained more than a fundamental grasp of most subjects before moving on to the next one, so he doesn't know nearly as much as he thinks. Zeke's no dummy, though. His mind is sharp as a razor. He'd be a force to be reckoned with if he ever learned how to focus.
He can be very outgoing and friendly, when it suits him, but most people only prove they're not worth the effort. Emotionally, Zeke tends to keep his distance until someone has earned his complete trust. As a result, he has hundreds of casual relationships and acquaintances, but not a single true friend. If anyone asks, he likes it that way.
History: Zeke didn't grow up on the streets, but he never had far to fall. He never knew his parents, killed in a car accident when he was very young, and a long string of cold and neglectful foster homes taught him that the only person he could really trust was himself. He quickly latched onto the idea of education as his ticket to the good life, and spent much of his childhood with his nose in a book (or more often three or four, with bookmarks strewn through random pages). His grades were usually superb, and he inadvertantly avoided the normal schoolyard bullying by hiding in the library from open to close.
After high school, his short attention span began to get the better of him. College was a bona fide feast of stimulation, but his grades quickly plummeted, and he graduated by the skin of his teeth. He's been working the last couple of years for a local library (where else?), and gets berated almost daily for his habit of shirking his duties in favor of disappearing into a dark corner with some of the books he's supposed to be shelving. He's not sure why they haven't fired him already; he's just grateful they don't seem to mind too much.
Misc: Zeke has a tendency to day-dream, and has even been known to drift off into his own little world in the middle of conversations. He never shares what he's thinking willingly, and the care-free smirk he usually wears is damn near inscrutable. He enjoys thunderstorms, hates country music, loves to cook (when he can afford to), and doesn't believe in magic. Pure rationalism and logic all the way, baby.
