History

As a child, Poncho Bayou, born Patrick Baron, put Sherlock Holmes on a pedestal. Born the son of a teacher and police officer, he trained from a young age to notice details that many other people would ignore.

He worked for several years as a police investigator before opening a small private organization with some colleagues. For another decade he and his associates answered calls from across the South, strange cases that the police were more or less over their heads with.

Recently, Bayou took a rather unique case. A series of cults had been forming in small backwater shanty towns, all of which were worshipping something or someone they called the "Hunter". Following a strong lead, he attempted to infiltrate one of the compounds in the dead of night. He was found out and fled through a corridor under a house, an unlit tunnel made of metal and stone. Through the darkness he ran, until he woke up in a strange, empty room with strange blue pipes running through it.

What does your character fear? That he's stumbled onto something too big to understand.

What are your character's goals? To figure out a way to escape the House. Beyond that, to see everything that there is, once.

If your character could be an animal, which one would it be? Bullfrog.

What is your character's dearest wish? To earn a reputation as great as that as Sherlock Holmes.

Why is your character here? He went too deep. He didn't see the whole picture, and was surprised by something horrible staring him straight in the face.

If your character had a tattoo, or another one, what would it be? A question mark on his upper right bicep.

If your character could have any superpower, what would it be? Super sight.

What is your character's greatest weakness? His appearance; a lot of people won't trust a lizardman. Otherwise, his tendency to miss startlingly obvious details in favor for obscure ones.

What is your character's greatest strength? His determination and intellect.
