Name

Patrick Swanson

Concept

Retired Military - Recon/Wetwork

Aspects

PTSD: Having been a former soldier and learning to survive messed with his psyche a bit. Always more aware of his surroundings than most will bother. Noticing even the most mundane of details. However, Swanson will gain tunnel vision from adrenaline in moments of duress, limiting his peripheal sight. Dismembered bodies and prolonged combat are his triggers, reminding him of his war experiences.

Stoic Hunter: Growing up with a backwoods family, Patrick spent plenty of time hunting animals in the woods. He learned how to stay out of sight and sound while tracking his prey. It also stunted his social growth a bit, making him seem socially distant to most people.

Float like a butterfly: Patrick is a little bit on the small stature. He's never been able to pack too much of a punch in a fist fight making him a poor contender in hand to hand and least likely to win a strong man competition. Luckily he's always been quick on his feet, able to out maneuver most people and traverse any terrain.
