# 475 ; Gallade
- Sassy Nature ; Thoroughly cunning
Damian isn't all that charming. He's an arrogant, sarcastic, patronizing son of a gun who doesn't mince his words at all. Let alone the wonderful vocabulary he inherited from his mother. If he gets frustrated--which he often does when writing--he just lets a string of beautiful words that would make his grandmother roll in her grave. (Shame it was his grandmother who taught his mother how to swear.)
Despite it all, Damian is surprisingly social. He won't hesitate to go out and play pool with a couple of friends, or hang out. He doesn't have a problem approaching people, or attempt to meet new people. Of course, it doesn't always... work out. Usually he tends to offend at least one person. And it doesn't bother him in the least.
Damian is definitely the kind of person who doesn't let what other people think bother him. He does pay more attention to how those he cares about perceives him. And to those he cares about... well, he's a tad less insufferable than usual. Just a tiny tad. After all, with familiarness comes the playful teasing.
History Damian was an only child, raised by a single mother. His father was a “no-good womanizing, cheating bastard” as his mother often put it—with a more colorful vocabulary attached. His mother often made sure to remind him how not to be his father. Growing up, the bitterness and distrust his mother had towards men grew more and more apparent. Even now, his still doesn't know the whole story why his mother is like that. And he has a feeling he never will know.
However, despite everything, his mother still cared for him. She worked several jobs trying to support them both—and her addiction to smoking. As a young kid, Damian did what he could to help his mother. He would even take up odd jobs around the neighborhood—like cleaning cars or ovens. As he got older, he would take part time jobs. During his high school years, Damian had an interest in joining the school’s newspaper. Something he never followed through with, due to his schedules conflicting. It was still a dream that followed him into college though, when he majored in journalism.
Eventually, he got a job at the local newspaper. At first it was his dream job, and he lived off the thrill of it. But somehow along the way, he was buried in stress. It was around this time, that he started smoking—first it was a stress relief that just became a daily habit. But even with that outlet, it was still too much. So he switched to writing columns, just out of curiosity from trying something different. He never looked back since.
Strange rumors surrounding a town called Raccolto, eventually reached his ears. At first he just dismissed it, but after he kept hearing more and more...incidents involving the rustic town, Damian decides to check it out for himself. Whether or not the rumors are true... well, it would make a great tale either way.
◦Services (Freelance ; Columnists House); Columnist Damian usually hosts an advice column, but occassionally he'll comment on happening events. He does most of his work at home, however.
- Dog/Cat’s name: Smiley
Smiley is Damian's right hand...pet? The electrike is not only extremely loyal to Damian, but is practically the man's shadow. If you see Damian, then more than likely Smiley's somewhere nearby.
Writing isn't only something he's decently good at, but it's also his passion. Besides his columns, Damians likes to dabble with fiction-- usually short stories.
Damian's only other talent is he knows how to play the harmonica. He's not great at it, but he does know how to play a few songs. It was something he learned from an old co-worker while working at the local newspaper.
◦ He tries to only smoke outside, something his mother would do when he was a kid.
◦ He always carries a switchblade with him. It was his grandmother's-- or at least that's what his mother told him when he was younger.
◦ Even though he gets along with his mother, they're not really "close".
◦ Damian isn't actually fond of liquor or anything alcoholic, claiming it's not his thing.
But really, he has a really low tolerance to it. He gets drunks pretty quick.
◦ He has an english accent.
◦ Bi-Sexual ; SingleCourtship isn't something high on his list of priorities. However, he doesn't mind the idea of settling down in the future.
If only he could find someone to put up with his crap.
