Sigh. I wasn't originally going to fill this out since I like things better without profiles (profiles are like cheat codes and walkthroughs! If you don't figure it out on your own, you haven't really succeeded.) But, since everyone else is, I figure it'll give a little insight to our dapper Ashley Black.
Name: Ashley Black (Known as Ash)
Place of Birth: Eugene, Oregon
Nationality: A little bit of everything; mostly Irish and Italian
Eye Color: Gray
Weight: 165 lbs
Favorite Color: Green
Physical Appearance: Ash has dark black hair, somewhat long for a guy; it's naturally pin-straight and stops just above his shoulders. Generally it falls into his eyes, but if he's working he usually has it pulled back. He has calculating gray eyes that, when he's angry, will turn a shade darker, and the opposite when he's happy or excited. Most of his weight comes from his height, for Ashley Black has quite the lean figure. He's always been able to stay in good shape just by working on machines and cars; generally if he works out, he bulks up quickly. Having a high metabolism, he can usually be caught with some kind of snack in his pockets. His nose is quite plain, with a freckle here and there, and full lips that press together when he's frustrated.
Background: When Ash was born, his single mother had decided to name him Ashley. When he entered schooling, many of the kids teased and taunted him about his name. In middle school, he put that problem to an end by beating up the school bully. From then on Ash, kept to himself mostly, never drawing much attention to himself. When he was sixteen he saved a child from a burning building, and earned the town's respect; because of their awe and constantly trying to talk to him, he and his mother moved to a small town and he got a job working in an autoshop while his mom trained horses. Ash developed a deep love for the powerful animals, which spread to all animals. He isn't a vegan or vegetarian, but he strongly opposes animal cruelty.
Personality: Although Ashley is one of the oldest of the expedition, he certainly isn't the most mature. He has a keen sense of humor, and he's quick to laugh at anything funny someone dishes out, if he's comfortable around them. If he hasn't quite put them into the 'friend' category, he'll usually laugh under his breath or smirk. Ash is an intense individual, but very reserved. He has a quick temper, especially when it comes to harassing others, though he keeps a lid on it. Very rarely does his temper get the better of him, and when it does, he gets extremely moody. When first meeting Ash, he seems distant and cold, but that is just how he is. Once someone gets close enough, they begin to see that he's quite gentle with everything, especially women, although there have been times when his passions get the better of him and he isn't such a gentle beast (Wink wink? :3) He is extremely passionate about that which he loves, which mainly consists of his close friends, family, and working on things. Being a mechanic is more of a hobby rather than a job for him.
Favorite Food: Pineapple
Casual Attire: Normal-wear is usually a pair of old jeans and a thin t-shirt for ash; he likes wearing clothes that can get dirty at a moment's notice. On the job he can usually be seen in a pair of overalls covered in oil and grease spots, and more often than not Ash will get a black mark or two on his face.
