Character Sheet - Quentin Westbrook
Character’s full name: Quentin Elias Westbrook
Character’s nickname: None that he prefers.
How old does he/she appear: Mid-thirties, perhaps edging toward forty.
Weight: Around 230-250 pounds; it fluctuates.
Body build: Stocky, but muscled; broad at the shoulder and hip. Solid and strong, and built like a brick… well, you know. Relatively fit, though a bit of softness is starting to creep in around his middle.
Shape of face: Square, with a strong jaw.
Eye color: Dark green/hazel.
Glasses or contacts: Glasses, which he often forgets to wear. (Or stubbornly chooses not to.)
Skin tone: Medium, with olive tones. Tans easily in the summer.
Distinguishing marks: (None visible while fully clothed.) Many small nicks and various scars all over his body; two deep puncture wounds in his upper trapezius muscles - one on each side of his spine; heavy scarring over his left deltoid - could be attributed to mauling by fangs or claws.
Predominant features: Prominent cheekbones; aquiline nose; thick, naturally sculpted brows that seem to be perpetually furrowed over a sharp gaze. Thick, wiry hair on his forearms and the backs of his hands.
Hair color: Dark brown. If one looks closely, they might notice a few strands of silver at his temples and in his beard.
Type of hair: Slightly wavy, a bit coarse, and very thick.
Hairstyle: Kept neatly trimmed at just past shoulder length, worn down or tied back at the nape of his neck. Generally keeps a short, well-groomed beard and mustache. The style sometimes varies.
Voice: A middling, level baritone.
Overall attractiveness: I suppose that would depend on the opinion of who’s looking. Would be considered reasonably attractive by most, but it is not something he dwells or focuses on.
Physical disabilities: Minor loss of mobility and stiffness of the joint in his left shoulder, which is exacerbated by cold weather and abrupt barometric pressure changes.
Usual fashion of dress: Casual and comfortable when at home. Most often in his work uniform when seen in public. Will dress more formally (with mild grumbling) if the occasion calls for it.
Favorite outfit: His ‘around the house’ clothes. A blue flannel button-down shirt, sleeves rolled to the elbow, with thick fabric broken in and softened by years of use. Brown wool trousers held in place with a pair of bracers and a waistbelt, and well-worn knee-high leather boots with toes beginning to curl slightly from being warmed near the fire too many times.
Jewelry or accessories: None, save for one ring worn on his right hand. The band appears to be silver, and is rather plain on its own… but its simplicity is offset by an intricately woven strip of human hair wrapped about its center, held fast in place by a delicate milgrain border. The hair is very similar in color to his own.
Alignment: Lawful Good.
Good personality traits: Generous, respectful, loyal, genuine.
Bad personality traits: Irritable, short-tempered, evasive, has a tendency to brood.
Mood character is most often in: Serious.

Character’s greatest fear: Losing himself and succumbing to madness.
Why?: It’s not something he talks freely about.
What single event would most throw this character’s life into complete turmoil?: The loss of someone dear to him. It nearly broke him once… for it to happen again would destroy him.
Character is most at ease when: Distracted by the fast-paced environment at work, or when he is able to spend time focusing on one of his hobby projects. Anything to keep his mind busy.
Most ill at ease when: Forced to socialize (especially in large groups), or talk about his past.
Enraged when: Honestly, it doesn’t take much, which upsets him greatly.
Depressed or sad when: Most of the time. Since the death of his daughter, Sadie, Quentin has struggled to find lasting happiness.
Priorities: Returning his life to some form of normalcy.
Life philosophy: If you expect the worst to happen, you can only ever be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

How other characters will be affected:
Hometown: Rural Brightwood/Duskwood (during childhood); Darkshire (as an adult).
Type of childhood: Relatively stable, considering the circumstances.
Pets: He grew up on a small farm, so there was a menagerie of animals. His favorite was a dog named Flossie.
First memory: Being bundled into a small rowboat to cross the river into Elwynn under the cover of darkness, to escape the Horde pushing into Brightwood. His mother held him and sang softly to comfort him as he cried over the loss of his favorite stuffed animal, which was dropped and forgotten along the road at some point in their flight. At the time he was too young to understand why they were leaving, but in later years would revisit this memory often, knowing as an adult that this moment was part of the chain of events that would change his homeland forever.
Most important childhood memory: Receiving his first bow on his 10th birthday as a gift from his father.
