ImageSTYLE
Harlan has an intentionally simplistic wardrobe for the purpose of maintaining a complete emotional detachment from its contents. He doesn't have a favourite shirt or pair of bottoms, nor does he wear anything that could distinguish him from the everyday BlackWater resident. Everything he owns can be discarded and replaced when necessary. He may even soak and re-wear the same outfit for weeks at a time while on the road. He opts for cotton shirts (typically stained and smelling strongly of alcohol) with a leather coat or duster, black bottoms and black boots.

HEIGHT
185-190cm (6'0 - 6'2)

APPEARANCE
Harlan isn't exactly hard on the eyes by most people's standards. There's a certain rugged handsomeness to him and it's not hard to see that he was quite a looker in his younger years. He is definitely getting on a bit in age, although he still has an impressive figure for a man in his forties. His muscles may lack definition but he's brawny enough to give off the obvious impression of strength. His hair sits in a perpetually tousled mess, often left uncombed after nights of restless slumber. Streaks of grey now lighten hairs that were once jet black, most noticeably on the sides, and his beard is almost entirely white. He is also beginning to develop some wrinkles around his hazel-green eyes, which is most apparent in the early mornings or when he has been drinking particularly heavily.

OTHER
Harlan's torso displays the scars of a near-death encounter with one of the creatures he now hunts. With a single swipe, the wendigo had split his garments as well as the flesh beneath it. The deep grooves of these long-healed scars stretch from the upper right of his chest to the lower left of his abdomen.

ImageLIKES
○ His best friend, Chief, who he adopted six years ago. The dog has inherited a great many of his traits and he cherishes it more than his own son at times.
○ Alcohol, particularly whiskey although he'll settle for anything if the urge is strong enough. He's very rarely seen without his flask.
○ Teasing people and pushing their buttons. Their reactions are amusing to him, especially when they are otherwise stoic in nature. Arthur is his favourite target.

APPRECIATED QUALITIES IN OTHERS
○ A crude sense of humour
○ Willingness to challenge bullshit
○ Enough sense to stay out of his personal business

DISLIKES
○ The assumption that all hunters desire to protect civilians - he despises people who are weak-willed and unable to fend for themselves.
○ The law and those who enforce it. He's a firm believer that people shouldn't be so strictly governed or have to adhere to social etiquette for fear of having their freedoms stripped from them.
○ Boredom, which admittedly isn't fun for anyone, but he becomes increasingly more agitated the longer he goes without any stimulation.

ImageSTRENGTHS
Perhaps one of the most apparent things that set Harlan apart from other Hunters is his significant wealth of experience; painfully accrued over the (almost) three decades since he took up the profession. The combined efforts of beast and mankind alike have not yet bested him; he has survived more than most humans could even fathom. He displays excellent judgement when approaching most situations, as well as the innate ability to learn quickly and adapt to his surroundings. He carries a machete at his hip for situations that require close-quarters combat, in which he can handle himself decently well, but his speciality truly lies with the sniper rifle. His aim is frighteningly accurate, as it should be after such extensive training. In conjunction with this skill, he has mastered the art of hiding in plain sight and knows how to move silently and quickly, should he need to reposition himself. Overall, Harlan is more the type to begrudgingly settle into a supporting role within any group or pair. He is the unseeable threat of an instant and untimely demise that can unnerve even the most iron-willed of enemies.

FLAWS
Harlan's worst enemy in this world is himself. He is an unmotivated and uncaring individual who won't often pull his weight for the betterment of others. This makes him unreliable at the best of times and due to his particular set of skills, it means that he is very rarely of any use to others nowadays. He simply... doesn't care. To make matters worse, he had turned to alcohol in the past decade or so as a way to cope with his emotional burdens and thus became an alcoholic. Aside from the smell that lingers on his clothing, it's not outwardly apparent since he usually only drinks enough to calm the shakes and stave off the withdrawal. The symptoms at their worst may include anxiety attacks, vomiting, and migraines; but most of the time he simply seems distracted or on edge. He is an addict before he is anything else and there is little that comes before these urges. It's difficult to gauge whether or not he feels any shame regarding this flaw but if other aspects of his personality are being considered, it is assumed that he doesn't. Harlan knows that he's not a likeable person and he doesn't care to present himself in any other light.
