General Information


About 6 ft tall, this norm male is broad-shouldered and appears to be in trim but not muscular. His hair is cut short, and his face lightly dusted with stubble. The breeze carries a hint of his aftershave: an imported brand. The man's green eyes are often hidden behind a pair of silver wire-rimmed sunglasses with reflective round lenses, and as he turns his head to look about the area, they reflect the light in a flicker of white. He appears to be in his early thirties.

While he tends to dress in corporate styles, he lacks the nervous tension or arrogance commonly seen on a wage slave found outside of comforting business surroundings. Instead, he seems relaxed and observant, an easy self-confidence on his face that doesn't cross the line into supercilious disdain. A slight bulge to every coat he wears, beneath his left arm, probably conceals his pocket secretary.

Temple? Oh, yeah. What I've heard is that he's moderately generous, to some extent resourceful, somewhat hard-working and to some extent rational. But I also heard that he's just a little cruel and a bit arrogant. I mean, he's got some promise. But overall, he's somebody who tries to do the right thing. That's all I know.

>>>>> [Steady under pressure, and even when the world's ending and the bullets are flying he's still getting out wry quips. Good at leading from the front. But he's tolerant to a fault, and I mean that. The middle of a job is not the time to coddle everyone's eccentricities and foibles! Sometimes the leader's job is to tell his troops to sit still and shut up.] <<<<<
