Basic Info:

Player: Glorpman

Position: Veterinarian

Demeanor: Lou Tanning is cautious man who will generally warm up to people quickly. He usually trusts people easily.

Nature: Lou can be quite nervous during missions and will often worry about his team. To strangers Lou can often be seen as scary or intimidating, but this changes once you get to know him though, when he opens up to someone he usually quite jolly and will often joke with them. Lou is also a resolute pacifist whose experiences during the war have made him decide to not harm another living being, whether they are good or evil.

Description: Lou is a monster of a man, with him standing at 6'5" and weighing well over 200 lbs. He is an Irish man with an extremely bulky and intimidating figure. He worked for most of his younger life with his mother and father on a farm where he had to do intense physical labor all day every day, which might explain his large stature, though that might also have to do with genetics. He was born on January 5th, 1921 and is currently 37 years old.

Personal History:

Lou Tanning was born January 5th, 1921 in Northern Ireland. Here, in Northern Ireland, he grew up with his family of 4 consisting of 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 he would often grow particularly attached too. When World War 2 started, he and his brother were drafted. Lou managed to survive the war, but his brother was sadly not so lucky. Lou did not take his brother's death well, and it affected him deeply. After the war, vowed to never harm another person, whether good or bad, and to dedicate his life towards helping others. 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.
