During the course of his life he has worked with, and interacted with, a broad variety of eclectic subcultures, organizations, and individuals, ranging from armored Stick Jocks of the Society for Creative Anachronism, to custodial engineers equally adept with building microwave cannons and mopping floors, to USMC officers training to defend against time traveling medieval knights. His likes include animals (especially dogs), video games, martial arts, cuisine, and good books. His dislikes include bullies, hypocrites, and “teachers” more interested in yelling at students and whacking them with sticks than in teaching (that is to say, teachers who are bullying hypocrites). His birth sign is Aries, he has no idea why that even matters and if encountered should be considered talkative and gregarious. Your best option is to put food in his mouth and flee while he’s distracted.
