Patrick Tell

Basic Info:

Player: Alchemistre

Position: Containment and Contingency Specialist.

Demeanor: Patrick is an incredibly curious man, often sacrificing a mite of polity and relatability for it. Always well meaning and frequently apologetic often puts him at odds with those offput by his high level of extroversion. Something of a jokester he see's poor reactions to his lightheartedness as a an opportunity to see that person's authentic self and find ways to bond with them, valuing many good friendships as a virtue.

Nature: In reality quite little differs between what he shows the world and what he is inside. Very forthright about his own emotions and desires. His desire to accumulate knowledge is no barrier to his own mental wellbeing, in fact he himself might argue that having been tasked with obligations that might test the human psyche and its durability has only galvanized his will do the work others cannot. Inquisitive by nature, he has a tough time turning down the opportunity to learn or expand his knowledge base and find new applications for its contents. Dedicated to the wellbeing of his countryman and all of humanity Patrick is a devoted and compassionate man that rarely finds anger or enemies.

Description: Male, 5'11”, 36, Caucasian, Black beard and hair, receding hairline, broad shouldered and generally more fit than not, a hint of a beer gut that he fancies as he thinks it makes him approachable, always seen in the exact same outfit as he owns a week's worth,

Personal History:

Born to Londoners Eldred (b. 1896) and Camilla Tell (b. 1900) on December 24th, 1923, Patrick's father was a baker who entered World War 1 as an infantryman, was promoted in the field to officership and was discharged honorably after war's end. His mother, a librarian at the University of Cambridge, married his father in 1919. His father later served in the Second War retiring a Colonel.

Patrick, having received his undergraduate from Cambridge a month before his 18th birthday, Patrick was recruited by the British government to work on a top secret project known as Project Oak in 1941, a strategic contingency detail tasked with providing national countermeasures to German bombings and later superweapons. After leaving the project upon the war's conclusion Patrick pursued a continued contract with the British government and later NATO in similar lines of work. Upon being contacted by the Foundation he felt his talents would be best utilized there.
