Role-Play: New Yoik
Name: Fletcher, Arnold
Nickname Given By Gantz: to be filled by the mod
Race (Ethnicity): White
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue
Career: Used car salesman
Inventory: Wallet containing $200 cash, several credit cards, a driving license, loyalty cards for various chains and some petty cash.
One Strength: Fletcher is very cunning; he is not intellectual, but has a certain kind of intelligence that lends itself to manipulation and underhandedness. He will happily and convincingly lie to get what he wants, and he’s usually smart enough to know when to lie, and to whom, to achieve that. His cunning usually allows him to talk or sneak his way out of trouble, often at the expense of someone else.
One Weakness: Fletcher is a dirty coward. At the first sign of danger he will probably run and hide, and would throw his own grandmother to the aliens rather than fight one himself. This will prooobably not sit well with other team members, and if he does succeed in gaining their confidence then seeing him run away will probably cause him to quickly lose it.
Appearance: Standing at 5’7”, Fletcher is not particularly tall and imposing, and is actually quite weedy. He tries to overcome this by assuming a confident stance and smile. He is not particularly good-looking, though nor is he ugly; he is entirely mediocre in physical appearance, as in many other ways. His oily blonde hair is swept back across his head and his long nose is slightly crooked. He wears too much fake tan and stinks of cologne. His only positive striking feature is his piercing blue eyes.
Being a car salesman, Fletcher was wearing an expensive, though gaudy, suit when he died. He always dresses neatly so as to impress prospective customers.
Personality: Fletcher will lie, manipulate or cheat to make himself look good, even if it means others taking the fall for him. In his social life and his professional one, he will happily steal the credit for the work of others and is entirely unscrupulous on all matters. In Gantz’s games, this would extend in his doing whatever he can to avoid danger for himself but happily letting others fight or die if it meant he might live.
Smug and petty, Fletcher thinks that being the top-selling salesman in his car dealership makes him the greatest guy in the world and doesn’t even contemplate that there might be a little more to life.
Describe your character's personality.
Background: Arnold Fletcher grew up in a well-off middle-class family. At school, his smug attitude and affectations attracted the attention of many a school bully, and was often beaten up. One such beating resulted in his nose being broken, which is the cause of its crookedness. Academically and physically mediocre, young Arnold only ever stood out for negative reasons.
Upon graduation he went to work as a car salesman for a friend of his father. Embittered by his experience at school and basically friendless, Fletcher nevertheless found he had something of a talent for selling cars. Not only that, but he cultivated his talent for making himself look good at the expense of others. Rising to be the star salesman (a position which was only partly justified) he now carries himself with the air of a man who thinks himself on top of the world, not even realising what a bitter and petty person he actually is.
Cause of Death: Fletcher was driving home from work one day, acting like he owned the road, as he always did, and ended up being slammed side-on by a bus. He was killed in the crash.
