Hans

“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul... I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”

– Herman Melville

What Was

There was once a boy, born in the depths of the Great Depression. One of the forgotten generation, a wharf rat, he found solace in the sea and the spray. In time, the sea and the spray took solace in him. It was a meagre Durance, scraping a living off a rocky crag until the rock became part of him, finding solace in what rudimentary craft he could imbibe. Then, one night, a shipwreck, the cold of the water and the flash of teeth and scales. But something else... recognition. Salvation. And now, the boy is once more scraping a life on the docks and the wharfs, a forgotten one from the forgotten generation.

What Is
  • The Life Aquatic: Hans is a commercial line fisherman for a living. He is often out on the water or working around the docks and the wharf.
  • The Life Illusiory: Hans is one of the Lost. He lives a life of lies and secrets to avoid recapture or discovery.
  • The Life Incandescent: Hans harbours rage for what was done to him. It burns within him and, at times, bursts from him in ways he could not predict, let alone control.
A Warning

Hans is a product of his time. He harbours views on race, sex, and politics that are outdated. It is not that he is a deliberately crass character -- well, not always, at least -- but be warned that he will say things that fall on the spectrum of offensive to politically incorrect. He is also a Lost of the Summer Court, so he is not likely to be extremely cuddly and polite. Please react as your character would ICly. If you have OOC concerns, please let me know. I am not possessed of such rage or prejudice OOCly - it's just part of trying to play the character. If these might be sources of OOC angst for you, let me know and I'm sure we can find a way to get around it or to make an excuse not to have thes characters at issue interact much or at all.
