Den has never left the city limits in his life. When asked why, Denver always says that he will leave when he is 'done seeing everything the city has to offer.' Coworkers use his nickname Den because they assume he hangs around his apartment alone when he's not at work. In fact he prefers to spend his free time running through the city. Threading the cities ever changing streets induces a sense of oneness with the city. This runners high is close to an addiction with him.
Over time, two or three other runners began to join him on his routes. These group meets were never planned, and no one ever talked during the runs. Den might turn a corner midway through his run and bump into one of the others. From then on they'd join up for the remainder of their runs. Even though they remained strangers, Den held a high regard for other anonymous runners.
His burden stems from the two lives he leads. One is a cog in a corporate world, the other a quiet observer of the city. Only one life can leave the city. If he doesn't choose, then he will face the same fate as the city.Reason for helping with others' burdens:
Before he gives up his burden, he wants a chance to live fully as the self he hid from the people in his life. Discovering and resolving the burdens others have gives him that same euphoria as running. Home:
His apartment near the edge of the city is sparsely decorated and simplistic. He doesn't spend much time in it besides when hes sleeping. One month, when he was suffering from a sprained ankle, he did spend his free time on his couch. He onled sat there so he could look out onto the streets.
