I've got everything but the Totem finished. Enjoy.
Name: Joseph Matrias
History: Joseph didn’t have too exciting of a life before the orphanage. The area they lived in was notably unsanitary, a condition that aggravated his mother’s already weak health, culminating in her death, dying in childbirth. After this, his dad did his best to raise him. However, the unsanitary conditions eventually also reached his father. When Joseph was 9, his dad got cholera and died.
For a while Joseph lived with his aunt and uncle in a more sanitary part of town. His aunt was a notably violent and vile woman. She was a disciplinarian, and a notable sexual masochist. His uncle was a much more prominent man than his father, and held a great deal of wealth in his hands. Often when Joseph was growing up, he would talk great lengths with his uncle, about philosophy, about God, about sex and women, power and money. His uncle believed in ‘Fortuna’, a deviant god of balance, the great wheel of fortune, the giver and taker of lives and wealth.
He met his end to Fortuna when the man’s passionate habit of smoking exquisite cigars and pipes eventually got to his lungs. Blood bubbling down his lips, his chest retching in horrific spasms, and Joseph across the room, watching as his uncle’s life fled his broken body. His aunt, the mentioned sexual deviant, did not like the idea of raising the young Joseph. Giving him just enough money to ‘survive’, the aunt left Joseph alone in the streets once again. Eventually he was picked up and raised in the orphanage.
Personality Quirks: On the outside, Joseph is a happy go-lucky, overweight child with a voracious appetite for baked goods, and an almost silly positive outlook in life. Joseph, however, is an almost gritty realist when push comes to shove. The loss of almost every positive influence in his life has made him have a fatalist belief in terms of life, to the point where he has inherited his uncle’s belief in the god Fortuna. Joseph is also a misogynist, the only woman that played a prominent part in his life his promiscuous and masochistic aunt. Joseph, despite his love of delicious food, also has no care for luxury. The kid can eat dirt and still enjoy it to a point.
Clothing Style: Joseph is very well kept in his clothing. He’ll meticulously keep the seams in his pants fresh, as well as keeping up with the latest in business fashion. He’s one of those people who ‘tucks his shirt in’. Typically he’ll wear more serious colors such as brown, grey, black, and white. A favorite outfit of his would likely include some brown slacks tucked into white stockings, culminating in a nice pair of shoes, while his top would consist of a button-up blouse or shirt, and a coat of some kind, either a smoking jacket, or a sports or pea coat.
