Focus! Focus! Just need a little focus and we can fix all of this. There's always a solution. Not that one, that's too easy. Complicated problems need complicated solutions. It might be messy (or illegal) but it'll work in a pinch. Or will it? Maybe if we just had some more time I could figure this all out.


I know I said I had this but deep down I'm afraid I'm in over my head. I don't really have anyone I can relate to about it, either. I have trouble figuring out who I can trust. It always seems like people are trying to take advantage of me and I keep falling for the same traps. Curiosity killed the cat, but I hope it doesn't kill me.

Everything has an explanation, you just have to understand how it works. Magic is only science that isn't yet understood. You live in the rational, reasoning world where there's a rule or law behind everything.


Role in Slasher

He was always smart - maybe TOO smart, some would say, as any bit of boredom almost always resulted in trouble. Science became his love, his obsession, and it was one that his parents encouraged. Usually. He did nearly burn down or blow up the house more than a few times with his crazy experiments, but no one was ever harmed and his eyebrows always grew back. He got great grades and went to college on a full scholarship, which was important because his family wasn't wealthy.

He lost that scholarship doing unsanctioned experiments in the lab after hours, and had to turn to making LSD with his skills to pay his way after. Then he got busted for that, and college was over for his. Now he's doing the only job he can get at the moment - housekeeping at the Eager Beaver Lodge - and he only got that job because his aunt used to work there and pulled strings. It's been six months and he still has no idea what he'll do for a future, if he still has one.

Housekeeping: he can be most anywhere as a part of his job.

Crazy Smart: He can do a bunch of things he probably shouldn't, like mix his own drugs.

Sheet

Brawn: Poor
Finesse: Normal
+ Nimble Fingers (Positive)

While not particularly athletic, he's pretty handy if you know what I mean.
Brains: Good
+ Improvised Novel Solutions (Positive)

He's got a knack for coming up with improvised novel solutions to problems, which while may not turn out as intended somehow are made to work.
+ Obsessed With Science (Positive)

Science hasn't really become his career yet but it's nearly all he thinks about or reads about.
- Naive About the World and Fellow Man (Negative)

Ironically his vast academic and philosophical knowledge doesn't make up for his naive, childlike view of the world and other people.
Spirit: Normal
+ Focus (Positive)

He has the ability to focus on a single item or idea, in spite of the surrounding activity.
+ Self-Confidence (Positive)

While internally afraid of failure he portrays a strong self-confidence.

Perks and Quirks

+ Adrenaline Boost

Sometimes stress can be a good motivator.
+ Area Of Expertise: Chemistry

Trial and error. Many trials. Many errors. He's mostly got chemistry licked by now.
+ Danger Sense

Curiosity killed the cat, but it can keep you aware.
+ Local Lore

He has worked at the Lodge for 6 months and has a pretty good lay of the land by now.
- Two Left Feet

Sports never really came naturally to him.
- Jilted Lover 2: Candice Flick

Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.
- Small Favor: Cassandra Wei

Nietzsche said there are slavish souls who carry their appreciation for favors done them so far that they strangle themselves with the rope of gratitude. But he really does owe Cassandra.

Christopher is a fresh-faced former college student with a mischievous twinkle in his expressive blue eyes. He has a sharp nose and a strong chin. He has fair, baby-soft skin and a swath of floppy platinum blond hair. He is a lithe, long-limbed and tall man. He looks to be in his early 20s and carries himself with a quiet self-confidence. Hidden behind his eyes is an unbridled curiosity.

First Story: Slasher

A waking world of innocence

So grave those first born cries

When life begins with needles and pins

It ends with Swords and Knives

Out of the Woods

Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you

I don't think that I can really survive

I'll never break my promise or forget my vow

But God only knows what I can do right now
