MICKEY O'DWYER

Background

Mickey O’Dwyer was born in New York in 1906. His parents, Michael and Rose were second generation Irish immigrants. A considerable age difference between the couple, Michael met Rose while he was a widower, his first wife having been run down by a horse and carriage.

His parents had set up a small tobacconists shop in a quiet district of New York, and Michael soon inherited a thriving business, with ideas for expansion across the state, branching off into confectionery, floristry and perfumes.

Rose was the driving force behind the floristry business, using cash from Michael’s businesses to produce a lot of her output at a local allotment and greenhouse.

Growing up, it seemed to Mickey that he was always surrounded by exotic plants, flowers and herbs. Constantly absorbed in his botany books from a young age, the other children took great delight in calling him ‘GreenFingers O’Dwyer’, both in reference to his passion for botany and his Irish ancestry. His first of many frequent visits to the Skylands Botanical Gardens at New Jersey during his teens gave rise to his desire to become a botanical scientist.

Having a good relationship with both parents, it was with some ambivalence that Mickey took up his place at Miskatonic University to study botany full time. Eager to pursue his passion, Mickey has found that campus life has taken its toll. Not really into the social side of things, Mickey has formed only a few superficial acquaintances, preferring to spend his time engrossed with his books and plants.

Description/Personality

Quiet, shy and a creature of habit, this mousy haired bespectacled twenty-two year old is the stereotypical bookworm. Mickey was born with a cleft lip and palate (harelip) and although he has no inherent hearing problems, he has been going to a speech therapist for most of hs life. Preferring his own company and that of his plants and flowers, he is and always will be somewhat conscious of his appearance
Mickey was educated at a special school, where the teachers heaped praise on his enthusiasm and aptitude for learning, encouraging his love of botany.
Mickey may never have been out on a date with a girl, but he prides himself on being an expert on the reproductive systems of flowers.

Looking forward to graduating, Mickey also works part-time helping Mr Potter, the Groundskeeper at the University.

A true sceptic of the paranormal, Mickey believes that all things can be explained through the rational applied use of science.

Charachter Background
Born in 1872 in Viborg, Denmark, Donald Lutherhagen was quite an athlete back in the day. He found out he was great in goalkeeping in High School, and sports earned him a rather large scholarship. He went on to study Chemistry in Copenhagen and as he was still great at goalkeeping, played in a second league soccer club. In the winter before his graduation(Masters course in chemistry) when he was just starting to think about the future, his parents were killed in an accident. He never talks about it so nobody knows what type of accident it was. Donald fell into a depression and barely graduated. He used his savings to buy a ship ticket to New York to start anew. He left all his possessions in Denmark. His house, which his parents left him in Viborg, his apartment in Copenhagen stand empty to this day.
Upon arrival in New York(barely knowing the English language) He left for Boston which seemed like a nice place and around the climate he was used to. Cold and salty air, wet autumns, snowy winters. There he became a High School gymnastics tutor and after meeting some local acquaintances got pulled into baseball. He instantly loved the sport, the tactics, the finesse. He started playing center field in a local team. After a few years he decided that teaching was his destiny, so he quit the team and focused on teaching sports. Still a gym teacher, he became a peewee league coach. This is where he met his future wife Adelle. They had no children but they lived a happy life together. Adelle got cancer in 1925 and died from it in 1927.
Donald decided to move once again, to leave the past behind. He found a vacancy in Arkham for the Miscatonic University baseball team coach and manager. He's been training the students for a whole semester already and is quite happy with the situation. He found some talent brewing under the nerdy, bookwormish skins of the students at MU and intends to enroll the MU Fiends in next years local league, hoping for at least a minor success.

Appearance and habits
The loss off loved ones has put it's mark on Donald's phisique, but not on his phisical abilities. Tall(185cm) and well built(90kg), he still looks intimidating. Rather messy, not really short black hair, but with a well kept mustache. His face a battleground of wrinkles, and his shoulders a little slumped from the weight of years, which are instatnly forgotten at the briefest mention of action. He speaks slowly with a low and rumbling voice, and although his English isn't perfect, his body language makes up for it(it tends to get loud on baseball fields and soccer stadiums, so he's had years of practice). Lately his mind tends to wander to unknown places. Although he rarely shouts, he does get iritated at ignorance and at people who are not trying hard enough.
Quotes: "I'm getting old..." "Throw the damn ball like I taught you!"

Background:
Albert Winston was born in April 18th 1884 in Arkham, Massachusetts. He was the first child of Margareth and Thomas Winston. Three years after, another member was added to the family, his younger sister, Elizabeth.

Since childhood, Albert wanted to be a doctor and he studied for that. The human body was fascinating for him. Finishing high school he went to Boston to study Medicine. He was graduated with honors, but by that time it was the human mind the main object of his interest.

He worked a couple of years at the General Hospital to raise funds to go to Europe and study with one of the newest doctors in the Psychology area, Sigmund Freud. He went to Vienna and studied for four years discovering the meanders of the human mind. He stayed there for another couple of years practicing with another Psychiatrist to get more experience then he came back to Boston.

At this time his sister had married an important banker in Boston, Alexander Mayhill and he decided to open his office there. Unfortunately, a few years latter, his father and mother died within the period of a year and he decided to go back to Arkham, since there was an open chair at the Psychology Department. He wanted to spread the knowledge he got in Vienna. He also uses the ground floor of his parent’s house for his office.

Now, he teaches at Miskatonic University and has his practice in his home office and sometimes he goes to Boston to treat some of his old clients.

Winston has brown eyes and hair, but his hair is turning grey because of age. He's 1,90m (6'23), 80kg (176,4 pounds).

Gregory Atkinson, Esq.

White male, age 33, single, Lawyer E.E. Saltonstall & Associates, birthplace/residence: Arkham, MA.

Background: Gregory (Greg to his friends) is an only child. He has always been a bit of a loner, and this was reinforced by his experiences during The Great War. After an accidental exposure to Mustard Gas, he developed Tuberculoses that left him gaunt and weak ever since. While recovering in England he found that both his parents had been killed. He returned to the States and, with his mild inheritance, put him self through College and Law School at Misk U. Due to lingering effects of his illness and his rather introverted nature (especially for a lawyer), he has not yet been able to establish himself as much more than a competent attorney, and currently is a new associate at the firm of E.E. Saltonstall & Associates. He has only been there for a few months, but has worked at other firms, as well as independently and a short stint in the Public Defender's office.

Appearance/Mannerisms: Six feet tall, but thinner than average due to the illness, brown hair and eyes, really unremarkable and average looking except for the unnatural thinness. Was quite fit before the war, so the lack of strength is frustrating. He tends to be standoffish and likes his books and throws himself into paperwork to fend off feelings of loneliness. Not unfriendly per say, but it takes a lot to get to know him. Generally not the ego and personality to be a truly successful trial lawyer.
