Cian O'Malley

Name: Cian O'Malley
Player: calamitous1
Description: Used to the desert's large temperature swings, Cian occasionally wears his worn duster jacket out of habit, though has taken to wearing a well-used buckskin vest inside. He never goes anywhere without his hat, a beaten felt, though lovingly taken care of.

Tall and heavily built, Cian's got a strong Boston accent, though somewhat faded since his transplant west. With a number of prominent scars across his cheek and brow, some show through his bushy beard.

Demeanor: Cian is a personable character, with a particular love of bawdy humor and good storytelling, paired with strong drink. However, he's got a hair trigger temper, though he's been forced to keep it in check since his arrival at Lockwood, as he adjusts to his new environment.

Advantages
- Did you hear that? : Years of being an outlaw have taught Cian to expect ambush. (Agility rolls at advantage when being surprised/ambushed)
- Definitely haven't done this before : Sometimes a bank job needs a more subtle touch, and Cian's the right man for the job. (Perception rolls at advantage when picking locks)
- Another round, damnit! : Every good outlaw loves a strong drink, and Cian's no different; leaving him with an impressive tolerance to toxins. (Roll at advantage when resisting poisons)

Disadvantages
- Wireless? : When Cian left his world, the telegraph was one of the most advanced pieces of tech at the time. Lockwood's forced him to adjust, but he still struggles with his using it. (Disadvantage to any rolls relating to Cian using technology)
- Just pour some whiskey on it! : Medicine in the Wild West was pretty bad, and most of Cian's "remedies" are of questionable effect. Take the lowest die when healing wounds.

Equipment
- Flashlight
- Two-way radio
- Custom Colt Single Action Army revolvers
- Hunting knife

Talent: Desperado
No stranger to having his back against the wall, Cian is hell-bent on either getting out, or going out in a blaze of glory. (Boost to damage and defense for 4 rounds, though any damage taken during this period is applied as one major wound)

Backfire: It was a good run
Sometimes even the best-laid plans go awry, and Cian's bad at taking personal failures. (For 3 rounds, Cian's damage and defense take a big hit, until he's able to recoup his spirits)

History:
Cian O'Malley is an outlaw through and through. Since the day he turned 18, he roved out West, eventually joining an outlaw gang after an incident in a bar brawl landed him behind bars. Ever since then, he's bounced between gangs for years, with no particular loyalty to any of them, though he's made friends between several gangs.

However, the arrival of a strange and enduring winter changed everything. Beginning with a global snowfall, it was shrugged off as nothing more than a fluke of the weather, but it simply continued the next day, and the next, and the next. Eventually, the entire world was covered in an endless winter, with no end in sight. Forced East to Chicago, Cian made his way to a boarding house with what money he'd saved as an outlaw, and bunkered down, trying to outlast the winter as everything around him froze.

One morning he awoke in the warm and cozy beds of Lockwood, and has remained ever since.
