For lack of more suitable material for my finicky mind...
Six-foot-flat, with a stocky build and well toned muscles, somewhere near two hundred pounds of solid muscle. He moves with a solid, heavy stride, stomping slightly as he walks.Personality:
Unusually for a Marine, the one thing he seems to lack is confidence. He has everything else, scars, medals, good looks, great muscles... But put a pretty girl in front of him and he retreats, seemingly unable or unwilling to connect with them, at least at first. His reactions are different each time, in some cases reducing him to a silent stony statue, in others a blabbering idiot, the latter especially when inebriated. Other than that he's completely normal, with no inhibitions or disorders that one might not expect from a somewhat reclusive soldier.Background:
Born in Texas, David was raised by an Airforce Major and a Navy Chief Petty Officer in the area of the main A&M University Campus. Therefore, it was absolutely no surprise when he joined the military, under the auspices of the ROTC program at the aforementioned school. After a short time, he transferred to the Marines, just in time to be caught up in some war or other.
After doing a tour in which he was badly shot up while on a mission, he was transferred to the States for some downtime. He still expects to go back any day, but the call never comes through, so he lives out of his apartment, which is set in a quiet little place, perfect for the vaguely anti-social Marine. With only six apartments in the complex, the chances of running into a really hot girl was minimized, as was the potential for screwing up. Right? Right.
So, weights in the morning, do a few laps in the apartments pool, maybe write that novel... plenty of free time on his hands.Apartment Number:
Soldier, a bit of a goof, but mostly keeps himself to himself. Girls are his kryptonite, a state of being which he really, really does not enjoy.
Just a concept that came to me. If anyone doesn't like it or thinks it doesn't fit, lemme know. I thrive on feedback.
