Dick "Spade" Continental

Basic Info:

Player: PMCD

Position: Antiquarian

Demeanor: A hard-boiled toughie of a man, he's got little patience for time wasters and even less sentimentality, unless it's to do with the greatest country in the world. Keeping his close relation with the things he loved back home, he stands out in a crowd of outsiders, although it's quite obvious it wouldn't be the same back in the USA.

Nature: Rough around the edges, Dick is a tired man that does work as a hobby. His surprising depth of knowledge in relics of ancient times fills up what would normally be a hollow, flat cliche, but rather than being the grouch everyone sees from the outside, he's got qualities such as his persistence in studies and dedication to his goals to give people a ledge to hold on when his rugged personality tries to brush them off.

Description: Broad-shouldered middle-aged balding man, five o'clock shadow the same shade as the charred base of his overexerted ashtray. Standing at 5'10, his eye color's difficult to determine behind his squinting, unsentimental eyelids. Despite his place of work, he's dressed more like a Private Investigator, what with his gray trench coat and occasional fedora to cover his receding hairline.
