Leon Ledford

Basic Info:

Player: TeslaTornado

Position: Radio Surveillance Specialist, Anomalous Audiologist, Farcaster

Demeanor: Tense and nervous, sometimes standoffish and high-strung. Always appears to be on the verge of a conniption fit or panic attack, but somehow never actually in one. Habitual smoker, and tends to speak using a great deal of filler words ("um, uh, ah, er," etc.) and long pauses that lead off into thousand-yard stares. Basically he looks like he's completely cracked in the head. Prone to easily being tipped off the emotional deep end by small, inconsequential things.

Nature: Mentally he is the equivalent of a man tightening a belt around a tightly-rolled mattress, frustrated and desperately hoping that his efforts to keep the mattress bound up don't just speed up the natural process of it coming unrolled, likely in a catastrophic and rapid fashion. He remembers what it's like to be a normal, functioning person, and there's a degree of resentment (of others) and hatred (of himself and his circumstances) that rests in the bottom of his heart. He wants so badly to go back to being an average, everyday man, and his inability to do that further drives a wedge that he does his best every day to leverage out of its cleft.

He's not nice, but it's not his fault; or at least, not entirely. His occasional brusqueness, short temper, frequent emotional outbursts, and terminal flakiness are the result of years of stress compounded by the damage that his encounters with the Russian caused to him both psychologically and physically, and the scarring that that caused is a wound that never fully closed.

Description: Although merely forty-one years of age, he looks considerably older. A perpetual sloucher and floor inspector, Leon dresses in slacks with bracers that are rarely ironed, wearing button-down shirts with uneven buttons or unstarched collars, sloppily-tied ties, and occasionally rumpled or threadbare suit jackets and overcoats. He rarely dresses in a way one would consider 'casual,' but the constant state of dishevelment that his wardrobe exists in doesn't scream "I'm wearing my Sunday best today!" His hair is an indeterminate brownish-blonde, coiffed to the side and kept short whenever possible. His darting, watery grey-blue eyes sit deep within a sallow, delicate-looking face, his mouth always slightly open and turned down at the edges in a perpetual mild frown. Although whether or not he needs them is a subject of debate, he consistently wears glasses, usually horn-rimmed or tortoise-shell.

In short, he's not winning any beauty contests, and wouldn't seem to be particularly amused by the thought anyway.
