About

Ian is a pleasant young man who is also a man-eating eel with legs. His primary income comes from doing unlicensed and uninsured repair jobs, but he'll also do other forms of manual labor or intimidation if he's paid in cash.

He lives a fairly mundane life outside of some street brawls and the occasional people-eating incident, but his routine is thrown into disarray when he finds an unconscious teenage girl on the street.

Personality

Ian generally keeps to himself, but when he has to say more than a few words at a time, he's rude at best and cruel at worst. This is completely intentional, and he seems to enjoy pissing people off. He's capable of working with people for his own benefit, but he's still not very pleasant to be around, and he'll quickly rescind his cooperation if he decides it's not worth the trouble.

He has a penchant for getting into fights. Technically, he won't start anything unprovoked, but his definition of provocation can be pretty flimsy depending on his mood that day. Once he's in a fight, it's nearly impossible to drag him out of it until he decisively wins... or loses, which he won't accept unless he's knocked out or otherwise incapacitated. Despite his irritability, his buttons have to be pushed a lot for him to actually get pissed off.

On the other hand, he's surprisingly practical and organized. Even with his impulsive streak, he has a somewhat rigid daily routine and finds it difficult to cope when it's disrupted. Unfortunately, he's also frugal to an extreme, which means he owns almost no furniture and eats raw meat scraps when he's not in eel form.

He possesses fairly average levels of impulse control, risk estimation, and common sense, but he typically acts against his better judgement and gets himself into trouble. He tries to solve these problems through brute force, which generally creates its own set of problems in addition to the originals.

  • Extreme omnivore - He can eat practically anything with no adverse effects. He often eats inedible items like trash out of boredom or curiosity.

Trivia

  • His phone is a not-very-gently used Nokia from 2008.
  • His immunity to most toxins includes alcohol, so he can't get drunk.
  • His vision is somewhat poor. He used to wear glasses, but he gets into so many shenanigans nowadays that he'd break them on a weekly basis.
  • He understands Spanish well, but can no longer speak or write it outside of basic communication.
  • His hair is naturally light brown. The blonde is the result of a complete disregard for sun safety.
