Here's my character, hopefully he'll be approved Name:
Joseph Arturo Phd.Age:
Joseph knows how to read and write in several languages, he is very good at 'reading' people and getting into their heads to try and see what makes them tick. He knows how to use a gun, as well as a bow and arrow, and even a fencing sword as a result of his many years in collegiate sports programs in the UK(though his skills with some of these items have withered with time and lack of use). He also is a quite capable actor, story teller, and persuasive speaker. Never married, Joseph knows how to cook, clean, and do everything else that a single man would need to do for himself. Inventory
Joseph has his Black Pt Cruiser
He also has four large gas-cans for fuel in the back of his vehicle.
He has about two days worth of extra clothing, a hunting bow
with roughly two dozen arrows and a hatchet for self defense.
As well as a small MP3 player and assorted accessories for it such as a car charger and headphones, and several bottles of scotch, bourbon, and wine in the car, which he uses to keep his flask filled and his blood suitably alcoholic. Personality:
Joseph can often come off as quite bitter, but that merely stems from his view of the world and the people in it. That having been said he can be quite caring about those he actually has feelings for and has a large amount of wit which he never fails to use on others. He was, before the zombie outbreak, one of the most liked professors at his college due to his ability to keep a group entertained.Bio:
Before the outbreak Joseph had led a relatively normal life. He was born and raised in a small town, where he remained up until graduating High School. At which point he entered college and majored in history. It was during his junior year that he joined a study abroad program and truly began to stand out from the hundreds of other history majors in his classes.
By the end of his initial college years Joseph, with the help of several professors and advisers, had achieved a double major of History and Literature with a minor in Philosophy. As soon as he graduated he went on to continue his studies. This time choosing to enroll in a college in the United Kingdom. After several more years he returned to the United States with a Masters degree in Philosophy, a Masters in English Literature, and a Phd in History.
His primary goal now was to give back, and soon enough he was, as a professor at UCLA, enjoying the sun, the beach, and those few students with a true 'spark' who came along every so often and made him remember why he had begun teaching in the first place.
When the outbreak first hit Joseph had been part of a lecture tour taking place at several colleges around the United States. As such he was in New York, he and his colleges had all volunteered to join the program that was being run by a collaboration of their respective Universities. The stated reason for the lecture tour was to offer their best and brightest educators' knowledge to others around the United States. But all the lecturer's knew that it was really just meant to show off and hopefully attract more students.
In any event the tour never took off, on the day of the first scheduled stop the first news of the events taking place around the world hit the general public. And no one seemed to be too interested in higher learning anymore. Other:
