Owen Cohen

Basic Info:

Player: Uasciozuva

Position: Firearms Specialist

Demeanor: Owen is quite friendly, although getting him to talk in length about anything can be a chore, both to get him to start and to listen to him talk.

Nature: Owen doesn't really care much for anyone at the Foundation, and views it solely as a way to help fix his anomalous malady, and to make a paycheck with people who hopefully will not judge him too harshly for his manner of speech.

Description: Owen stands at 5'8, he is neither exceptionally handsome, nor particularly ugly. Instead he has a bland face, with black medium length hair and brown eyes. His one outstanding feature is the alarming amount of freckles on his slightly tanned skin.

Personal History:

Owen Cohen was born to a simple farming lifestyle in a rural providence in Denmark, and would have remained a farmer all his life if, at the age of 12, he had not decided to go into the city. There the two most important events in his life occurred. Shortly after he took place in a free entry amateur marksman competition, ranking 2nd despite his unfamiliarity with the rifle, Owen was knocked unconscious and awoke several days later, at home and amidst nervous members of his family. Upon opening his mouth for the first time since awakening, a incandescent blue bird forced itself out of his mouth, disappearing up the chimney shortly afterwards. To his great dismay it was discovered that he was no longer capable of communicating in any method other than rhymes.

He has since been to 7 countries, train-hopping most of the way, traveling ostensibly to marksman competitions, but also to attempt to discover not only how and why is he forced to rhyme, but also a cure. It was at one of these competitions that he was approached by a man who recruited him into the now defunct GOI, Men of Class. After serving with them for several years, and learning what pitiful amounts of information they knew about the anomalous world, Owen struck a deal with a Foundation mole to defect into Foundation custody. After extensive interviews, Owen was offered a place in the Foundations ranks, as a member of PSI-7.

Miscellaneous:

Owen Cohen has been afflicted by an unknown anomaly that forces him to rhyme in any and all methods of communication. He does not like this fact, and is desperate to find any way that he could cure himself.
