My character. Keeping the info simple and short. I'll get more in depth as the thread goes on.
Name: John "Jack" Ellison
Age (range if needed): 33
Weight: 245 lbs
Appearance/history: In every sense of the stereotype, Jack looks like a construction worker. A long black scruffy beard, maybe 3 inches long, with scraggly short cut black hair. Typically wearing jeans and a T-shirt, his slight beer gut hangs over his belt, a side effect from many a night spent in a bar after the crew closed up for the night. Thick and powerful from long hours doing concrete and steel work, Jack would be an imposing figure if he didn't shake like a scared child whenever his adrenaline starts going. He was never much of a fighter, unless he got drunk, when he could get nasty in a heartbeat. Most of the time he was a pretty nice guy, attempting to avoid conflict rather than create it. He was good at his job, and he was proud of what he'd done with his life despite dropping out of college. He had a few close friends, and one who had known him since they were kids. Jack had little family left, his parents dying in a car wreck when he was in college. He kept in touch with his sister, who lived in Philadelphia.
Pre-outbreak occupation: Construction Worker
