Name: Salem Redgrave
Appearance: Standing at five foot nine and weighing about 160 pounds, Salem's in pretty good shape due to his general lifestyle and hobbies. The other half of his lifestyle has resulted in him not getting quite enough sunlight at long enough times to get much of a tan. He's a handsome guy, but isn't out of the realm of believability. He's ethnically Greek, but lacks the sweet-ass accent, as the last four to five generations of his family were raised in a small town in the southeastern United States. His hair is brown, and kept in a medium length layered hairstyle, the fringe usually combed to the right so it doesn't fall into his dark blue eyes. Unfortunately, he can't grow facial hair too well, and usually barely manages more than stubble, if even that.
His clothing style is incredibly casual. Longsleeved shirts and fitted jeans, paired with simple black and white shoes. Generally, he'll also add a hooded jacket. His preferred colours are blue, red, and black, though he has one particularly nice jacket that's white and grey. Whenever he goes biking or climbing for long periods of time, he'll wear a pair of black gloves without fingers, but he generally doesn't. A beaded wristband that was a gift from his older brother, along with a couple rings, are generally worn on his left hand when he doesn't have the gloves on.
Personality: Salem's very friendly and loves to have fun, but also takes pleasure in calm, slow days in nature or old structures. He loves company and spending time with friends, but at the same time doesn't really enjoy parties or other huge social gatherings too much. Reading is also a favorite pastime of his, and while he's not very good at it, he's tried his hand at writing and before. While not incredibly artistic, he enjoys playing music, and knows a few instruments. He's best with a flute, and proudly displays the instrument on one of the walls in his house. Generally, he's a bit of a dork, but he doesn't mind too much.
Abilities: Salem's personal ability manifests as short amounts of 'bullet time' from his perspective. Dodging and lining up shots would become easier, while fighting in melee combat would allow him a few free strikes, a dodging opportunity, or simply faster attacks. He can't use it for huge amounts of time, but with experience, it would grow into something more potent.
Equipment: Salem isn't much of a fighter, but as something that's been passed down in his family, he owns a customized M1911A1 handgun.
For the most part, it stays locked in a box underneath his bed. He has experience shooting rifles, but he doesn't own one. While it could hardly count as a weapon, he owns a simple woodcutting axe that could be lethal if used in a fight.
Most of the time, he wears a silver locket around his neck holding a pair of small family photos.
History: Early in his life, Salem lived mostly as a shut-in with a deep interest in all sorts of odd things. Stories about things lurking in the shadows and just out of sight were his favorites, and he had a love for psychological horror movies. One of the only people he really interacted with was his brother. The two were raised together in a nice household by a loving family, and in general, they had a desirable if simple life. When he was around 16, some terribly unfortunate events resulted in the destruction of his family's first house by fire. The family moved, and upon taking residence in a smaller home, continued their happy, if a bit less materialistic lifestyle.
Salem's older brother recently moved to Italy, less than a year ago, for study reasons. He wanted to go with him just to tag along, but he couldn't afford it, and instead stayed behind to attend a college that he's been in for two years now. While not quite as exciting as going abroad, he's been happy, and is waiting for his brother's return. The two keep in contact, and have similar interests. Things have recently quieted down in his life a little, but hey, he's not complaining.
Other: His interest in reading can occasionally get the best of him. Getting caught up late at all hours of the night browsing amateur-made stories is one of his favorite pastimes.
