Basic Info:

Player: Glorpman

Position: Veterinarian

Demeanor: Lou is quite the nervous man, but he will generally warm up to people he considers friends.

Nature: Lou is a very nervous and cautious man who worries that he will somehow end up hurting his team. This changes once you get to know him, though, when he opens up to someone he has a jolly demeanor and will often joke with them. Lou is also a resolute pacifist who refuses to harm anyone, whether friend or foe.

Description: Lou is a monster of a man, with him being 6'5" and weighs over 200 lbs. He is an Irish man with an extremely well built and intimidating figure. He worked with his mother and father on a farm where he had to do intense physical labor all day every day, which would explain his unusually large size. He is 32 years old. He is quite the pushover and will often give in in a situation in order to avoid conflict.

Personal History:

Lou Tanning was born January 5th, 1921 in the country of Ireland. Here, in Northern Ireland, he grew up with his family of 4: him, his brother Matt, his father Gavin, his mother Adeen, and of course himself, in a small rural farm in the middle of nowhere. There he helped his family with chores and taking care of the animals, which inspired him to be a veterinarian. When World War 2 started, he and his brother were drafted. Lou managed to make it through, but his brother was not so lucky. Lou did not take his brother's death well, and it broke him emotionally. When the war was over, he made a vow to never harm another person, whether good or bad, but only to help others in need. He then went on to go to college and get a Ph.D. in Veterinary Science, with his success gaining the attention of the SCP Foundation. He now works as the on-site veterinarian.
