A Not-So-Important Local, a Familiar Face
Raised: Born and raised in Haven, Edward "Eddie" Grimes has seen his fair share of the weird and unsettling. Though he didn't attend Blackfield Academy - his parents made sure of that - he still got a public education, eventually electing to attend Brown University for a Communications degree.
Returned: Now, however, he's back in Haven. The degree doesn't seem to have gotten him much stable work, but his skill with a camera and his penchant for sticking his nose where it doesn't belong mean it's only a matter of time before he comes across things he shouldn't. The HSD has had him along to photograph crime scenes, and he knows better than to speak too loud about the things that lurk in the shadows.
On Coping: Basically, anything that can take his mind off the various nightmares he's encountered is free game to Eddie. It's not exactly a secret that he's got a substance abuse problem, and has put himself in many a bad situation trying to score a fix.
Supernatural Weirdness: Look - Ed doesn't know much about the supernatural. He's trying to keep it that way, because it fucking terrifies him. He's been around Haven enough to know that there are bad things out there, that getting wrapped up in it will lead to him getting hurt, and that it's best to just not give any of them a reason to single him out.
He's not natural himself, but he doesn't know that yet.
Recent Developments: Recently, Edward has been far less well-known for his photography and his writing, and far more so for hanging around the Nymph's Rest, for stripping, and for generally being more of a degenerate.
Obviously, as a low tier, I welcome antag. A few notes to get your most bang for your buck:
* While Edward is 'aware' of the supernatural, he's purposefully fuzzy on details - types of supers, their abilities, societies beyond the Big Three, etc etc. I enjoy this. Please feel free to use memory potions or powers as necessary to keep him from freaking the fuck out or blabbing about things. Learning (and relearning) is fun!
* I find coded combat exceptionally uninteresting. If it's necessary, I will probably lose (if I fight back) - this isn't me being difficult, it's both not caring for the system and the PC being combat-inept.
* Otherwise, go nuts. Mental fuckery is generally preferred to physical torture, but I'll still enjoy it and give the best scene I can.
* I'm here to collaborate, so if you want something to go a certain way, within the realm of possibility, send me a note!
* When I AM on the antagging side, I will be tentative until I figure out (or read, or am told) what the other party enjoys and does not enjoy. I don't have many limits, but I'm fine with voicing them when they arise or fading past them.
* I will ask to please respect when I have to go. I have no qualms picking something up later, 'losing' to be put in the same position, etc, but I work long, odd hours and am narcoleptic. Sometimes either let me log out or you will be roleplaying with a brick in 15 minutes.
* I get overwhelmed in crowded scenes often. It makes me slow. I apologize in advance.
