Physical description: he prefers to call himself "heavy-set". His friends know he's just starting early to get fat. He's been into all kinds of martial arts, but lately, he's into Wing Chun, which seems not to be helping with his weight...
Character: Duncan doesn't like talking. Some people think that's because he ain't got much between the ears. Others believe he just doesn't like talking to people. Yet others are persuaded he's smarter than most people that talk.
As with so many things in life, depends on who you ask.
Bio: He arrived from Glasgow when he was 9, with a mother and no father. At age 10, his desperate mother inscribed him into the nearby Shito Ryu dojo, because he was fighting too much: other kids were mocking his accent. This kept him out of gangs for, like, 2 years. Then his desperate sensei sent him back to his mother, 'cause he didn't exactly stop
fighting. He was just doing more kicks now, and cops went to talk to the sensei...
His mother brought him to another school. He didn't get kicked out of the Judo/Ju-Jutsu place, 'cuz he left it for Wing Chun before his sensei was able to take that decision...
Meanwhile, one of his best pals was hanging with some weird crowd. But, they had money, so hung with them.
Then he learned how they made those money they were spending so readily. It took him some time to try, but then he was kinda enthusiastic.
Time passed. They grew up...or at least they think they have (society still thinks they're young
adults, at best). They're now being more responsible.
But his pal, who became the informal - and later, the formal - leader of said bunch still needs someone occasionally. There are heads that need bustin', and in that case, Duncan is there.
Hey, they told him that the fastest way to learn using Wing Chun is to try it more in real situations! Admittedly, the guy who said this didn't consider that for some people "go try it for reals" is good enough as a plan. But he's said it nonetheless.
And he's always been a very, very diligent student. He was great in sciences, too...up until he left high school.
Whether he still remembers "natrium what" is salt, is up for guesses.
