Player Name

Lowell

Name

"Reeve" River Walker

Concept

Apache Zoologist

Aspects

Aspect 1: Looks Before Leaps: Reeve's had more than a little practice keeping unnoticed. His focus on remaining unobserved makes him hesitate to expose himself, delaying- though not fleeing- even when others are in danger.
Aspect 2: Nonverbal Vocabulary: Reeve's studies on animals have cultivated a talent for interpreting nonverbal cues like body language and tone. However, he's extremely literal, and the subtleties of wordplay are lost to him frequently.
Aspect 3: Savage Arms: Reeve is old school. Very much so. To him, "obsolete" sounds like "tried and true," and while he does have a knack for using outdated weapons- whether a lever-action shotgun, a bow and arrow or a spear- his preference will often lead him to choose them over more effective, modern weapons when available.

Personal History

Born on the Mescalero Apache Reservation, a youth spent learning the traditional hunting ways of his tribe left River Walker with a deep appreciation for the animals that gave their lives to feed his family. Time in the New Mexico wilds taught him more than just how to strike from a distance; the study of animal patterns, lives and habits, as well as understanding and respect for the wilderness itself. Though this was satisfying to him, it was the desire to learn more about the animals around him made him look for ways to leave the reservation and study at "real schools." An archery scholarship earned him that chance.

However, he quickly found that the stultifying environment of university study was choking. He had a real and burning desire to learn in the field, and took every chance to intern in the wilds, to take exchange student trips out of the country. He went on safari, spent time in the jungles of the Amazon and the deserts and mountains and every other extreme environment he could find, all to study the way life adapted in such places.

It was his drive to pick out the how and seek out the why that brought him to Foundation attention. It didn't take much convincing to coax the burgeoning zoologist to take up a role researching the hows and whys of animals that nobody else on Earth had ever seen- or at least hadn't survived seeing.

Miscellaneous

Reeve's 5' 10" with typical AmIndian complexion and short-cropped black hair. He doesn't do the majestic locks flowing in the winds of nature; that's dumb and he's not.

Reeve acts more like a redneck geek than a stereotypical AmIndian. While he grew up on a reservation, truth is, he's spent most of his life immersed in scholastic culture. Much of it was in the field, true, but there's a cultural disconnect he wants to try to bridge- eventually. Don't expect rain dances or scalping.
