Never was a “player”, Antonio was a good student who was too busy with his studies to have any time for girls. At university, through a mutual friend he was introduced to Lillian. Neither could stand each other at first, both being strong-willed and independent people, but slowly over the course of two years they began to grow close. Then on a rainy day in March, Antonio proposed to Lillian on the steps of the library. She enthusiastically accepted. They were married in February the following year.

Antonio wakes up early and goes to bed late, he is nearly always sitting in front of the radio when the Salvagers are out, only leaving his post for restroom breaks or to fix urgent problems that occasionally arise at Chol castle.

Conservative.

Collections:
Antonio wasn’t a wine snob by any means, but he did have a small collection of expensive vintages. He also had a multitude of cuff links.

Favorite Food, drink:
Despite all his travel and sampling of different cuisine, his favorite food still remains his Mother Maria’s recipe for Arroz atollao. A good glass of wine.

Music:
Antonio tries to keep an open mind when it comes to music and for the most part he enjoys most genres, though his favorite type will always be Colombian folksongs.

When sad:
Antonio prefers to mourn alone and silently bear the sorrow.

Idiosyncrasies:
Antonio always puts his socks on before his pants.

Laughs or jeers at:
Stand-up comedy routines, especially dry and self-deprecating ones usually make Antonio laugh aloud. The severely inebriated are also good entertainment as well.

Ways to cheer up this person:
Nothing cheers Antonio up like a good laugh, but sometimes all it takes is quiet supportive company to cheer him up.

Ways to annoy this person:
The quickest way to get on Antonio’s nerves is to be stupid or careless. He does not suffer fools or cowards well.

Hopes and dreams:
Antonio had hopes to achieve more in his career, but his goals have dramatically changed. He now hopes of making a self-sufficient community out of Chol Castle, where everyone will be safe and content.

When Antonio was fifteen, his teacher caught him passing a note in class, marching him up to the front of the room, the teacher ordered him to read it aloud. As the teenager began reading it quickly became apparent that this was no lovey dovey note. It was a descriptively explicit and detailed, lust filled note, complete with crude drawings. After three sentences Antonio was dragged by the collar down to the principal’s office. The worst part of the whole situation was that he hadn’t even written it, simply got causing passing it.

Safety.

Anecdote: It was May 2nd. Twelve year old Antonio sat at the dinner table with his uncle. He didn’t know what to feel, he wanted to yell and punch his uncle, to call him a liar. His parents couldn’t be dead. They were going to come and live together in London, like a real family. He couldn’t believe that it was true. Antonio’s uncle just sat there, saying over and over how sorry he was, as if he felt responsible for their deaths.

Chol Castle


June 26th 6:30am

Drafty.

Cliché, yes, but rather accurate in this instance. Three comforters and a wool blanket barely seemed to be enough to keep out the cold out some nights. Yet some shivering was a small price to pay for the security that the castle offered.

Antonio lay in bed staring at the stone ceiling listening to his wife’s even breathing for several more seconds before he carefully began to extricate himself from the tangled web of bedding. Eventually he freed himself without waking her; he dressed as soundlessly as possible and kneeled at the foot of the bed. Every morning Antonio uttered a small prayer before going about his day. Once completed he silently rose and stepped out into the hall, carefully closing the door behind him.

Striding confidently down the hall, Antonio headed for the stairs. He intended to check up on Cameron, who had likely been on watch all night long. An involuntary shiver passed through Antonio as he stepped out on the allure, a biting wind gust cutting straight through his thick sweater. Cameron sat halfway across the allure on a rickety stool, a scarf wrapped tightly around the man’s face and a pair of binoculars glued to his eyes. Antonio halted two meters away, not wanting to startle or break the man’s focus.

“You have something to say or what?” Cameron asked in a slightly annoyed tone as he continued to gaze through his binoculars.

“Well, I just came up to check on you.” Antonio crossed his arms in a futile attempt to ward off the blasting cold.

“That’s sweet of you.” Setting down the binoculars, Cameron turned to face Antonio. “What’s the real reason you came up here?” His eyes were surrounded by dark circles and narrowed in suspicion.

Antonio heaved a shivering sigh. “Listen, everyone knows you aren’t getting enough sleep at night. I just want to make sure you’re good and I’m always available to talk if you want to.” Tactfully, Antonio didn’t mention that whenever Cameron did try to sleep, he often ended up waking the other residents with his tortured screams.

“I don’t need a therapist. I appreciate the concern, but I’m fine and can take care of myself.” Cameron replied defensively.

“Alright, just know my door is always open.”

Cameron gave a grunt in reply. “Since you took the trouble to come all the way up here, I might as well tell you this now. That pack of dogs that’s been hanging around the castle came in closer to the walls last night than they ever have before. They’re either getting bolder or more desperate. I scared them off with some rocks, but I’m sure they’ll be back. I know you’re against thinning them out, but we might not have any choice soon.”

“Thanks for letting me know, I will keep that in mind.” Antonio replied with only a minimal amount of teeth chattering. “Would you like me to send up some breakfast?”

Cameron had resumed looking through his binoculars, but at the mention of food, he spared a quick glance towards Antonio. “I’d like a biscuit if we have any left. Have Alia bring it up if she isn’t busy.”

“Sure Cameron, I’ll see what I can do.” A small smile crept across Antonio’s face at the second request.

Antonio hurried back to the relative warmth of the indoors and rubbed his hands together as he descended the steps. By the time he reached the study, he had warmed up significantly and felt a great deal more alert. Opening the large doors, he crossed the room quickly and retrieved a small voice recorder sitting on the oak desk next to the radio. He used the little device as a babysitter for when he wasn’t able to listen to the static, which he typically only used at night. Holding the recorder up to his ear, Antonio listened to the playback as he exited the study and walked toward the kitchen.

The pleasing smell of warm oats curled through the air as Antonio was greeted by a cheerful Alia, who was perched on the counter next to the pot on the stove. The young woman had proven to be a fast learner in the kitchen and seemed to have a natural talent for cooking. He returned a warm smile to the young woman.

“Good morning Antonio, want a bowlful?” Alia asked, pointing to the steaming pot for emphasis.

“I would, thank you.” He replied, taking a seat at the table. “Oh, before I forget, Cameron asked me if we had any biscuits left.”

Alia’s brows crinkled, “I think we do. I’ll give him a bowl of porridge as well.”

“Good, he was hoping you would be the one to bring it.”

“I bet he does.” Alia giggled, as she placed a hearty bowl of porridge with raisins sprinkled on top in front of Antonio.

“Thank you.”

“You’re welcome.” She replied pleasantly.

Pulling out a small notebook, Antonio started reading over the day’s planned schedule while Alia searched the cupboards for a biscuit.

After several minutes passed, a triumphant Alia proudly held a biscuit. “Success, I found one!” She announced, waving the slightly stale biscuit in the air.

“Found one what?” A new voice asked from the doorway.

Both Antonio and Alia gave a small start, instantly recognizing the voice.

Lillian stepped into the kitchen, her belly leading the way. Head held high, she took the seat opposite her husband and stared him straight in the eye.

“Oh, I just found a biscuit for Cameron, speaking of which I better take it to him right now.” Alia’s eyes darted between the seated couple. Hurriedly, the young woman scooped out some porridge and quickly left the room.

Antonio pretended to be fascinated with his notes as he felt the heat of Lillian’s stare burn into his scalp. Eventually Lillian broke the silence.

“Who’s going out today?”

“Five.” Antonio said around a mouthful of porridge.

“I asked who.”

“Aisha, Allison, Tyresa, Michael, and Jamal.” He finally said after a lengthy pause. “There shouldn’t be any problems; they won’t be going anywhere dangerous. If everything goes well, we should have more gardening supplies, so we can expand the garden plots.”

Lillian pursed her lips before replying. “Mmm. That is good news, especially with how much we have been giving to the Inners lately.”

“Yes it is.” Antonio agreed, taking note of his wife’s expression. “I need to go post these for the Salvagers.” He announced quietly as he rose stiffly from his chair and placed the notebook under his arm.

Lillian didn’t acknowledge his statement or subsequent departure, her eyes only fixated on his empty bowl.


Missions


Dishing the Dirt

Suggested Number of Salvs - 2

Area – Small gardening shop on the outskirts of Low Row, just East of Chol.

Objective – Secure gardening supplies

Information – As you all know, we have the start of a garden planted in the front courtyard. However, the soil we currently have is less than ideal for growing food, which is why it is important that we secure as many bags of high quality soil as possible. Any tools, seeds, or other supplies you find would also be useful as well.

I’m authorizing the use of the little white hatchback, to make retrieving the supplies a bit easier. Only a few dead have been seen roaming in the area, but be on your guard and try not to get the car stuck in a pothole.

Lean on the Horn

Suggested Number of Salvs - 1

Area – Car junkyard to the north of Brampton.

Objective – Help Nikoli retrieve several car horns/alarms.

Information – Nikoli is Chol’s only scout and reformed juvenile delinquent. We need you to accompany him to the junkyard in order to retrieve several car horns so he can make more of his handy distraction devices. While he may be quick and resourceful, keep in mind he’s still a teenager and you will need to keep an eye on him. Last time he tried to go alone a car nearly fell on him; stay alert for a few wandering dead that seem to hang around the place.

Chol’s small collection of bicycles is available to use.

Gas required

Suggested Number of Salvs - 2

Area – Close to Brampton’s west border

Objective – Retrieve propane.

Information – We’ve put off getting more fuel for the generators as long as we can. Currently, we only know of one place to get more, which is an outdoor tank in a small warehouse yard, which is unofficially inside the Crusaders territory. We have had friendly relations with them so far, but let’s not test that. Try to get in and out quickly, preferably without being seen.

You will have two five gallon propane tanks and two bicycles.
