As it turns out... I couldn't wait and I created my character right away... I blame your wonderful stories, m'Lady. I hope this is to your liking.Act I. The ProfileBirth Name
: Kale HastingsName
: Sometimes he simply goes by his first name, however to friends he goes by simply 'K'.Alias
: Actual: 20 Appears: Perhaps 18; nothing drastically lower, however his dress sense often makes him seem more a teenager, rather than an adult.Sex
: Bisexual - "Why limit yourself?"Profession
: He currently works part-time in a small cafe in the center of the city; it is often rather busy and as such it gives him the funds he needs to make his way through university, where he is studying childcare and education.Role
: Detective initially, though there is scope for something of a Stockholm syndrome in the future.Act II. The DiagnosticsHeight
: His hair is dyed black from its natural blond, though it was done rather poorly at home and as such several irritating specks of blond can be seen within the shoulder-length strands.Eyes
: Dark blue.Skin
: Slightly tanned, thoughnothing overly noteworthy,Birth Mark
This upon the back of his left shoulder; while not being religious, he believes that everyone has his or her guardian angel, and he likes to keep his close byDistinguishable Mark/Scar
: None, other than the above tattoo.Act III. The DossierLikes
: Art (either drawing it himself or seeing others art), alcohol (though not to an obsessive level... Or so he tells himself), music of almost any kind, helping people in need, hiking.Dislikes
: Ignorant or close-minded individuals, coffee or anything bitter, loud noises, enclosed spaces (this is a serious phobia for Kale; he breaks out into a deep panic attack when forced into small spaces. This is so extreme that even elevators are too much for him to handle).Attitude
: He is a rather quiet person, preferring the company of his pencil and paper than that of people. This by no means makes him antisocial however; should he meet a person, he will do all he can to create a good impression owing to a fear of rejection that has no visible cause. He also enjoys helping people in need, making a point to drop loos change for any homeless people he passes, leaving tips in restaurants; small and anonymous favours are his forte as he dislikes being in the limelight, thinking himself as something of a wallflower and happy to be such.
He is a very hard worker and applies himself completely to whatever task he is trying to complete, be it a painting, a cup of coffee for a customer or an essay for his university course. He is, however, extremely picky about submitting finished works; often taking longer than necessary to finish something basic as he is something of a perfectionist.
Very rarely will he submit to a confrontation; much preferring to back away or end a possible conflict with a discussion instead of violence. Despite this however, he is no fool, and will try to defend himself if attacked and will likewise leap to the aid of someone else, should they be in trouble. Thankfully he has never had to do such, as he would most likely be more of a hindrance than aid.
A rather negative trait which he possesses is that he will never ask for help; he frets that he bothers a person by telling them he is in distress and as such he has a bad habit of suffering in silence when there is an easy way for him to get help.Habit/Twitch
: He often touches the tattoo upon his shoulder when nervous or concerned; the thought of his guardian angel being there is something of a comfort to him... Though whether it is true or not, is a different matter.Quote
: "Do I need a reason to help someone?"Weapons
: None. Even if he possessed some, he would have no idea how to go about using them; the limit of his weapon knowledge is that with a gun you point and pull the trigger.History
:Kale was, in fact, born in the city; perhaps this is surprising considering his quiet and reserved nature in such a corrupt place, however somehow he has always managed to keep himself out of trouble, despite living upon it's doorstep. His mother sheltered him a great deal as an infant owing to the rough nature of the area where they live, his father having died many years previously when Kale was but a baby. Kale doesn't know the reason for this death in the family, however he dislikes talking about it as it upsets his mother, whom he loves dearly.
His mother (while she could work) was a simple librarian in the small bookstore; a poor way of life, however the two needed little in the way of food and they never cared for luxuries, a trait which Kale still carries to this day.
His mother was unfortunately struck down by a car in an unfortunate accident and had to have her left leg removed, rendering her somewhat useless to the world of work and at that point, Kale threw himself over the role of full time carer. This did not last long however; the boy at the time could not cope with so much pressure, and as such his mother committed herself into a hospital close to the family home, leaving Kale living in the small house alone.
His life is basic and uneventful; he goes to university, works, comes home and often visits his mother, the reasoning behind his work ambitions being that he wishes to give something back to society, and he believes that supporting and helping children is the best way to go about it.
