No. 9- Patrick Mizrahi

| November 9, 2011 | 0 Comments

Name: Patrick Mizrahi

Age: 21

Ethnicity: Iranian-American

Occupation: Convenience Store Clerk, College Student

Short Background:
All Patrick wanted to do was make some money over the summer and go into his last year off college not completely broke. In order to do so, he opted to work at his uncle’s convenience store to put together some extra cash. It wasn’t exactly the safest neighborhood, but his uncle promised to give him a bonus if he could last the summer. Despite the dangers, how bad could it get?

Then he met Oscar Ortiz. From the moment they met, Patrick took an instant dislike to him and his attitude. But when assassin’s and hit men came gunning for Oscar, Patrick really hated him. The neighborhood was dangerous enough, but now it seems like he is in over his head.

Patrick dresses somewhat more formally than Oscar. He does wear t-shirts and jeans but very rarely. He does not wear wifebeaters, sleeveless shirts, or basketball shorts. He is very formal and almost the exact opposite of Oscar in every way.

No. 8- Oscar Ortiz

Tiny head, big body.

Name: Oscar Ortiz

Age: 28

Ethnicity: Puerto Rican-American

Occupation: Former Assassin, Convenience Store Clerk.

Short Background:
If there was one thing Oscar lacked, it was self-control. Out of all of the assassin’s in the Reaper’s Guild, he was the most impulsive and thoughtless. It made him many enemies but also made him one of the best. He was so good that he was given the code name Basilisk. Once you saw him, you were already dead. He was that good, but the problem was that he knew it.

However, it is that same impulsiveness and cockiness ends up leading the Guild’s worst enemies right back to them. While many of the assassin’s (including Oscar) manage to escape, they are now targets and out in the open. Many of the remaining assassin’s blame Oscar and their idea of payback is not a simple slap on the wrist.

In order to lay low, Oscar takes up a job that will not draw attention to himself. He finds work at a convenience store in a dangerous neighborhood. A place where people don’t ask questions and, as long as you can survive, you are allowed a little privacy.

Unfortunately, Oscar’s luck may run out as he ends up caught between his worst enemies and his former peers.

Oscar is trying very hard not to be noticed and does his best to blend in with his surroundings. He dresses very “urban” (hoodies, wifebeaters, jeans, etc.) and has even taken on an accent to better fit in. Physically, he is very muscular but not to the point of being a caricature. If I had to compare him to anyone in terms of physique, he’d probably be along the lines of Ricky Steamboat in his prime. In short, this guy isn’t perfect but a still BAMF.
