The Staff of the Eager Beaver
Half-Naked Bartender

A coward is like an onion. He has layers. Could be a bully, putting up a strong front with a weak, rotten core. Could be a victim, avoiding conflict in every day life, but stand up for one shining moment. Could be hustling, wheeling and dealing to keep himself out of the line of fire, or could be hiding in his obsessions and addictions. He's hiding and fleeing from something, no matter what he's doing. Aliens? Monsters? His boss? His responsibilities? The small voice inside him that tells him the most painful truths?

OOC Note
I have neurological damage. In big scenes with a lot of text flying by, I miss things. Hell I even miss things in small scenes. If I've missed you or you need me to respond to something, please page me!

Archetype Roster Concept 

Heroes run into danger. You prefer to watch from a safe place. You survive because you always disappear when danger rears it's head, or at least you convenalwaysiently hide behind the person bigger than you.

Role in Slasher

Southwest born and bred, he grew up in - that's right! - Colorado and has moved around a bit. His family moved to Arizona in his early teens, then California for his last two years of high school. His father is military, but none of the ha9rd work and discipline rubbed off. He's a slacker at heart and always takes the path of least resistance.

College would be hard, as would most jobs, but he's young and good looking and knows his liquor, so bartending seemed the obvious, easy choice. Tending bar at the lodge is fairly easy, he gets free room and board, and there's always interesting people coming through. What's not to like?

Bartender: Need a drink? Someone to talk to? He's there for you.

Why So Serious?: Life should be fun and easy. Want to have fun? He's easy.

Bad Ideas: Need someone to go with you on a really stupid dare?

Army Brat: If you too were shuffled around the US to new schools every couple of years with no say in it, let's get drunk.


Brawn: Good
+ Abs For Days (Positive)

Welcome to the GUN SHOW! Colorado is in peak condition.
+ Staying Power (Positive)

Like the song says, he can dance all night and play all day.
Finesse: Good
+ Dancer (Positive)

Yeah, okay, it's exotic dancing, wanna make something of it? He's fast, limber, and has a fine sense of balance.
+ Flair Bartending (Positive)

A sort of hybrid between bartending and a circus act, Colorado is skilled at the combination of juggling, balance acts, and setting shit on fire that make up flair bartending.
- Nicotine Fits (Negative)

If he goes too long without a cigarette, he gets real twitchy.
Brains: Poor
+ Mixologist (Positive)

Booze, booze, booze, if it's about booze Colorado knows it. Not just drinks, either, he's a damn MacGuyver of alcohol.
- What Were You THINKING?! (Negative)

He probably wasn't thinking, if you want to know God's honest truth. If there's a bad decision to be made, he'll make it.
Spirit: Normal
+ Everybody's Best Friend (Positive)

Hey c'mon now, let's party!
- Noping On Out (Negative)

Everybody's best friend, that is, until there's something unpleasant or scary that needs to be done.
- Double Dog Dare Ya (Negative)

This man will never turn down a dare. Double points if it makes him look super cool when he pulls it off. Also prone to daring others for stupid and dangerous reasons!
+ Showmanship (Positive)

You're not just stripping. You are fulfilling every woman's wildest fantasies. You are the husband they never had. You are that dreamboat guy that never came along! You are the one night stand, that free fling of a fuck, that they get to have, tonight, with you on stage!

Perks and Quirks

- Big Favor

Owed to Bastian, who got him this job. Bastian knows his father, too. Not telling Lieutenant Dad about Colorado's shenanigans is part of the favor.
- Fainthearted
+ Danger Sense
+ Scream Queen

One part attitude, two parts liqueur of show-off. Shake in a pink chrome tin. Strain over a Texan accent. Garnish with abs.

Active Character: Slasher

You're dyin' and you're screamin' inside

Aerosmith - Young Lust

Out of the Woods

Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you

I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
