Gunman/John "Jack" Doe

"Don't. Touch. My. Guns."

0 · 210 views · located in Carthan

a character in “Assassination Game”, as played by Methodical


Codename: Gunman
Alias: John (Jack) Doe
Age: 21
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Specialty: Firearms of all shapes and sizes, though he prefers high-powered revolvers and heavy caliber rifles. 

Assassination style: Jack exclusively uses guns on his jobs, his favorite being a large, ornately carved silver revolver, which he's affectionately nicknamed "Annie". He usually does his job from a distance from which he cannot be seen, but for the more up front jobs, he loves to shoot people's knees or heels and execute them by shooting them in the head. He also often leaves a single silver bullet at the scene that has "condolences" carved onto it, as sort of a sick joke.

Personality: Jack spends a lot of his days at bars, drinking and picking up easy women, or sitting alone at his lavish, high-rise apartment, and the rest of his time murdering people. He's usually nice enough, and very charming, but secretly longs for something more than his current life.

Fears: Jack is terrified of water.

Gun connoisseur: Jack is an expert in Firearms, and can take apart and re-assemble just about any gun, from a pea-shooter to an elephant-killer.
Street-smart: Jack knows the underworld like the back of his hand, and is in a good way with the criminals and the mob, and has a good network of connections. He also knows the city landscape very well.
Sure-shot: Jack is an expert sharpshooter, and rarely, if ever, misses his mark.
Hunter-Killer: Jack is an excellent tracker, and has spent many a night in the wilderness tracking down a mark.
Lazy-ass: Jack separates pleasure and work religiously. If his life isn't in danger, or he isn't being paid, he can rarely be bothered to do tedious things.
Not a fighter: Jack is not well-trained in hand-to-hand combat, and, while not a complete push-over, he would not last long against a trained brawler.
Not an animal person: Animals just seem to hate him. He has no idea why. 
(Not a) Lady killer: Jack often refuses to kill women, and his "respect ;)" for them has gotten him in trouble on multiple occasions.
Justice is(?) Blind: Jack has (especially recently) a hard time with killing people who don't deserve it.  

A brief history: At the academy, Jack was very well-liked, but a bit of a slacker when it came to academics. He had some natural talent, sure, but never applied himself, and was constantly getting in fights with other boys. He became distant in the last couple of years, and honed his gun and tracking skills to a poi t where they were the only reason he scraped by. He has recently become quite lonely, and a bit depressed, and yearns for something different.

Appearance: Jack is extremely well-kept, with flawless, lightly tanned skin, rich dark-brown hair, and cat-like green eyes. His clothes are always very clean, and he always wears a gold watch, no matter what the occasion.

Clothing style: He usually wears a pair of black trouser with a white dress shirt and a black vest. He sometimes wears a pair of gold goggles on jobs.
Height: "5'9
Build: Slim, with a bit of muscle, though not a lot.
Distinguishing Features: His cat-like green eyes, the expensive looking gold watch he never takes off.
Other information: Jack is secretly a piano prodigy, and loves to play, but never plays for anyone other than himself.

So begins...
