Character Description:
The following is not just a description of Man’s physical traits but also a window into his current mental state. Man is Caucasian, has a lean build, and is or close to six feet tall. He wears a business suit that, once admired, is now wrinkled and unkempt. His hair, usually combed with intent to appeal, is now a mess as though forgotten. Features once considered attractive are now hidden by frantic eyes and a creased brow. Still it is clear he was once a man who cared about his appearance – perhaps some even considered him vain.
