Molverine (deatheateregg) | 140 comments Name: Owen
Age: 35
Appearence: dark blonde hair that's a little past the shaggy point, green eyes, 6'2", he was burned all over his body in a fire when he was 8
Things you know about the character so far: He's very protective, a little bit aggressive, he definitely has a temper and gets jealous very easily. He's not very trusting. As of now I like to think he has a sweet side, but we all know my characters like to rebel...
Things you know about the character's past: Was in the hospital for about a month after the 'New Hollywood' theater burned down leaving him with brain damage (amnesia) and severe scar damage. He couldn't remember anything from before the fire. His parents were killed in the fire and he overheard the doctors talking about sending him to a foster home. As soon as he was physically able, he snuck back to the theater where he discovered the bomb shelter built there during WWII with a year's supply of food/water/clothes/whatever else is in a bomb shelter. During that year he became a very skilled thief. He continued to steal what he needed for 9 years before Carissa's dad purchased the theater. Owen started 'disturbing' the renovation workers before he started to blackmail Carissa's dad for money/food/electricity/whatever he needed
Where you think the character will end up: Dead... *cough*
What you want help with: He just feels cardboard to me...

Anna would like me to add she wants to do the "truth" thing that Emmie's doing to help give me a voice.

Mitch (i-am-not-real) | 425 comments Okay.


Are you REALLY a pedo?

The first last name that popped into my head was "Maddison". Which is entirely random.
I had to say it.

Hmm... I may or may not get a last name. Because of the amnesia I can only remember my first name. On top of that, I never used it, so it was slightly forgotten.

Are you an Indie music fan, or are you more mainstream? Because I could hook you up with some great Indie stuff.

Cassie will take over.

You...like...pasta...of all kinds.

Owen | 19 comments Its a mix between good and bad. If you take away the outside factors of Anna's various pains, I'm fine. Add them in, however, and its horrible.
