Character Description

Hamish is a young man somewhere in his mid 20’s, a few inches over six feet tall and willowy, given to a slim, athletic physique with long limbs and torso. His auburn hair is just a little too long for ‘clean cut’ and usually kept in a state of trendy disarray, the reddish locks lightly curly around his ears and the nape of his neck. Eyes are a light sky blue over high cheekbones and a straight nose lightly dusted with freckles, occasionally with a pair of rectangular, thin rimmed glasses perched there. His skin is pale but not unnaturally so, and his light pink lips are easy with an endless supply of charming smiles. He takes care of his appearance and cares about how he looks day to day, always clean and with a hint of some fine smelling perfume oil.
Typically dressed nicely, Hamish usually prefers something casual and comfortable without sacrificing luxury or quality. Designer fashions and suits tailored to his slender frame, he keeps up with trends and style with ease and enjoys dressing for the occasion, even when it takes him out of that comfort zone. This means I’ll just pose what he’s wearing, it’s so much easier than making a ton of descs! He dons accessories or jewelry appropriate to what he’s wearing, but has no visible body piercings, not even in his ears. He does have one very noticeable tattoo that spans the front of his throat in the form of a wicked looking bat’s head. Its large ears sweep up under the line of his jaw towards his ears, its vicious face over his light Adam’s Apple with fangs and forked tongue running down his trachea, a black crescent’s corner lines meeting in a circle to form a tipped gibbous moon over the bat’s head. The tattoo disappears completely at times through the cunning application of makeup or scarves.

RP Hooks
Food!: Hamish LOVES food! Restaurants, cafes, food trucks, hitchhikers that no one will miss, he's bound to be found anywhere that serves eatable things. He gets by doing food-critic work for some local media. There's no time when he is without something to eat.

Living To Excess: Devoted to the Eater of Souls, and a big huge fan of Vorus the Urge Wyrm of Greed, Hamish is all about excess and gluttony. Food, drink, drugs, roller coasters, sex, shopping, having, getting, consuming, gimme gimme gimme! Such a live-for-today lifestyle does come with a little bit of sacrifice though, the binge is followed by the purge, the high with the come down, and the need to pay at least some mind to one's body to keep it capable of going on. You might even catch him - *gasp!*- jogging!

Evil: Let's face it, Hamish is a dyed in the wool monster, he accepts and indeed even embraces this fact, though while he is completely bat shit insane and gleefully murderous, he's not a slavering beast. He enjoys good conversation, meeting people, new experiences of all kinds and just plain being social. Refinement and civility is important to him. Would Hannibal Lecter have been an annoying jackass in public? No sir! He's not too good to get his hands dirty, but he is made to be out there on the grid and interacting with the populace in non-annoying ways.

Alternate Identity 5: Hamish has an extremely solid alternate identity as Doctor James Crane, M.D., psychiatrist, specializing in child psychology and mental health. Licensed to practice in the state of California, he has excellent references from his residency and internships. He is currently practicing at Kindred Hospital just outside downtown Prospect, a psychiatric facility specializing in children and adolescents, as well as acting as administrator and psychiatric consultant for the Edgefield private school.

Den Father, Shattered Souls: Hamish is the current Den Father for Prospect's Pit. He heads a score of nanny metis overseeing the education and rearing of young BSD kinfolk and garou. This moves him in and out of human and BSD societies regularly, making him a good starting point for new Spirals looking to learn more about the city and the local Pit. His businesses provide employment for new Spirals, and his safe, privately run school provides education for any Spirals interested, catering to BSDs and prospective bane vessels. His work in the child/adolescent psychiatric field allows him to find lost BSD kin and shifters who have been committed by their unwitting human families. Are you new to town? Look Hamish up!

Business Owner: He owns a farm in Prospect, McClure Acres, which houses his BSD kinfolk and does business in pigs, cannabis, 'organic' fruits and veg, body disposal, and various deep web activities. Under his alias, Dr. Crane, he also owns Alanna's Flower Shop and Bike-by-Knight Couriers, as well as heads Edgefield School for Gifted Children, and Kindred Hospital, which act as BSD locating, training, integrating, and Fomori recruitment points.

Hidden Meadows: This character is affiliated with Hidden Meadows and its local Pit as well as with Prospect.

Disclaimer: Okay a couple things I'd like to make a note of: While I'm playing in an antagonist sphere, I'm playing for story, not for kill count, and PK is not on my to-do list. Second, I have alts, they're Gaian, and there's attention paid here to not having alt-conflict and not crossing lines there. They're doing Gaian things, Hamish is doing Wyrm things, and I'm just gonna do my best to make sure none of those intersect without a really good reason.

Other Disclaimer: TS: ICly, Hamish is a big ol' man-slut. OOCly, the player's not interested, sorry.

Other Other Disclaimer: Bat: As a follower of Bat, he's fanatical about Veil preservation. Not that he can't have fun, but there can be no evidence of the supernatural at all, and he's fairly hostile towards blatant veil breakers.

Choice Cuts and Quotes

You're always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece. Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it all together. And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it's no good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it? Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a pisshead. You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for the sake of the piggies' digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course, but you don't want to go sievin' through pig shit, now do you? They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the expression, "as greedy as a pig."
