Works at the local library, gamblesHobbies outside of racing:
Reading, Often when he's not at the bars or gambling he can be found in a library or at his book store reading into the late hours.
Gambling, Anything to make a quick buck to put towards the things he needs, hes not really good at it and he is somewhat addicted to it.Appearance/Style Description:
Standing 6 foot tall, Christopher seems like a kid to not be on the wrong side of. In high school he gained his toned etched figure from constant practice on the schools hockey team. When dressed he is either wearing athletic shorts with a Pittsburgh penguins t-shirt on or in more fashionable sense he dons on nice button down shirts with a nice relaxing pair of jeans that look well with his stylish puma shoes. For style, he's best recognized as an alternative outlook on life. Since his brothers death, and his burns, he's held a stoic outlook on life leaning towards depressing. He often keeps shirts on to hide the burn scars as he fears they'll scare others off and they remind him of his pain. Personality:
Quiet at first, once he warms up he is a nice guy. Hard to anger, yet once he's angry its hard to calm him down. His eyes always seem distant, truthfully its because he blames himself for the deaths.History:
Christopher was born the youngest son of two, to a loving family. His father was salesman for a local fruit market, often trying to branch out to different communities to expand their customer basis. His mother owned and ran "Bishop's Books" a small downtown bookstore given to her by her own parents when they passed. Chris's older brother, Steve, was the exact opposite of him growing up. Where Steve was into cars and hand tools, Chris always found himself helping his mother and reading quiet often. Steve and Dad would work on the cars if issues arose while Chris would help catalogue new books when they came in. Life was often a fun endeavor and they seemed the happy go lucky family. They brothers were never apart despite their differences. They were best friends, and often Chris would help Steve with school and often got him into reading. Likewise, Steve helped Chris learn the basics of auto mechanics and tools so he'd be able to survive in life.
Upon his 17th birthday Steve was going to surprise Chris with his very own muscle car, on that his dad and brother both worked on for him. As he found out he was ecstatic, and soon the trio set off on customizing and fixing the 1973 Trans Am up. During this time his brother taught him everything about driving a car properly, and soon he was almost as good. However, Tragedy struck one night the brothers were working on the beast. Fire broke out, and Steve was trapped under the metal hunk as it went up. Chris tried many feeble attempts to save his brother, even as far as scaring his chest and right arm and putting himself in the hospital. Months passed since the day his brother died, and on two occasions he attempted to take his own life, blaming himself for his brothers death. One night after work when he just turned 19, more sad news struck him. He arrived home to find multiple cop cars and an ambulance positioned all about. He found his mother hysterical in the arms of his uncle, reason being his father ended his life by drinking and over dosing on sleeping pills in a depression.
The next 5 years of his life consisted of multiple police encounters with him mostly outrunning them. When he wasn't working in the book store, which was hardly ever anymore, he was either drinking and singing at the local bars or gambling his life savings away. His life was chaos until he crossed the wrong people with the wrong bets. After cheating to win, and being beaten to a bloody pulp, he was told to leave the area and never return. That is when he arrived in Miami from Pittsburgh. A new life awaited him and when he turned 25 everything seemed to be on the right track. He was making decent money working at the local library. He had the old trans am shipped down to him and he began to fix the car up once more in memory of his dead brother and father. He moved his mother down to Miami to keep her out of harms way and planned on helping her open another book store.
Yet old habits die hard, and he needed money to do that. So once more he gambled and raced, and after winning the small time drag he won the upsetting fists of the small crew he beat. It was something that ended him in the hospital where he met non other then the Doc.Current Situation:
Working at the library and racing/betting to get money to build his brothers gift car and to reopen the bookstore.Car:
2012 ford fusion bought at auctionStrengths:
Anticipator- Since getting into gambling he's learned a thing or two about reading people, weather on or off the track. He's good at knowing when people are about to attempt a NOS boost or drift into a secret route.
Straight away - He knows how to take advantage of the straight away in races, understanding that gapping the distance is always a good idea.Weaknesses:
Depression - Randomly he'll be reminded of the ones he lost and often he'll go on drinking binges or wonder off to be alone.
Non Mechanic - Even though his brother taught him a whole lot about vehicles, he isn't a trained mechanic, so he is not very well able to make his way about an engine, in depth.
Burn marks - The burns on his chest and upper right arm often flare up in excruciating pain and many times they've done such while racing causing him to lose focus and mess up.
Drifting - Even though Chris is amazing at the straight away, he could never seem to get the drifting ability down. Not that he wont do it, nor does he not (because most times he tries) but he looks sloppy and it often ends up costing him time.
