Christopher Jackson

Player Name:

Ihpkmn

Name:

Christopher Jackson

Concept:

An eccentric botanist/chemist

Aspects:

The Plant Whisperer: Fascinated with all types of plants, and known for talking to them (or at them, rather; they don't talk back). Also has quite a knowledge of various terrestrial plants, and likes cataloging unknown species and specimens. He also hates seeing unnecessary destruction of plant life, to the point he has previously assaulted colleagues.

Goldfish: When it comes to things he's not interested in, he has a very, very bad memory. He can recite the name of every chemical compound found in Poison Oak, but don't be surprised if he can't remember your name after talking to you for about a week. As such, he usually keeps a notepad around to write down various things so he doesn't forget them.

No-Eyes: Christopher has very, very poor eyesight. Without his glasses, he's nearsighted to the point that he can't see his own hand in front of his face, and also has sudden attacks of floaters in his eyes that can impair his eyesight, as well as dry eyes; he goes through eyedrops like a kid goes through candy.

Personal History

Christopher Jackson was born in a microscopic town in Wisconsin. He spent much of his young life fascinated by plant life and how plants worked, which lead him to studying biological chemistry and botany at the University of Wisconsin, where he was often a loner due to his various eccentricities.

He was recruited into the Foundation after he earned his doctorate in biochem from U of W, and was assigned to Site 87 in Northern Wisconsin. There, he began his studies on anomalous plant life in full, before being selected to travel to Area 354 for his expertise in botany.

Miscellaneous

Christopher is 27 years old with poor eyesight, greasy black hair, and a constantly distracted look on his face. Typically seen with a lab coat with a striped shirt underneath it, and khakis. In his downtime, he just likes to sit in his quarters and take care of Starla.

Christopher's only real talent is his green thumb; he's rather good at raising plants, anomalous or otherwise. He claims that talking to them actually helps them grow, and conducts research on the side in an attempt to prove this hypothesis. If you're having trouble with an office plant, call him… but make sure it's not plastic first.
