Name: Curtis James Silva
Current Location: Cardiff, Wales; in a back alley, in the shadows, near a hotel.
A tall, slender guy, with light brown hair that falls to the nape of his neck (skater style), cerulean colored eyes, and fair colored skin. Curtis dresses more for style than comfort, so more often than not you will find him in an un-tucked button up dress shirt and a pair of black slacks.
Curtis is all about opportunity, he doesn’t really plan for many things to happen or even when he is going to do things. He believes that chance happens once in a life time and if you don’t grab that chance it will slide away and leave you hanging. When interacting with people he ends up being quite sarcastic to begin with and will only let that slide away a bit if he gets to know the person and enjoys their company (a rare occurrence since he move around a lot).
Curtis really has his doubts about aliens, but after coming back from his brief trip to England and hearing all the stories circulating he has come to a conclusion that they are either real or the population of England has some sort of story telling dieses that he hopes is not contagious.
Curtis is fairly low tech (never having cared to pick up a cell phone since he would have no one worth talking to anyway) he carries a pocket knife on his left hand side and keeps a nine piece lock picking set and a plastic card on him during most nights.
Curtis is very good at blending in with the background in most environments; he uses that skill and his lock picking skill to obtain things from others during the night. He is good at solving problems and is fairly stealthy.
Curtis’s problem is that is not very good at smooth talking his way out of situations he seems to find himself in and he is not very good at street fighting with those who are larger than he is; so Curtis is more likely to take the flight over fight method in most instances.
Background: Talk a little about your character’s life up to the point of receiving that message from the Doctor. What was it like? Did you have a job? Have you had any dealings/encounters with alien life before (if so describe it, i.e. Maybe you are a former member of an alien-fighting organisation, such as UNIT? Or maybe you’ve simply witnessed an alien life-form before now?), or is the Doctor the first alien you’ve ever met?
From a young age all Curtis noticed from his parents was that they absolutely hated each other with every fiber of their beings. It was obvious that they were only trying to stay together for him, but even that was not going to be enough. After a rather rough night with a large fight that involved the police, his mother left leaving Curtis alone with his father who did not work (the lazy bum). At first Curtis started to develop his skills as a thief so that he could feed himself, but after that it gradually became a hobby just going after bigger and better things. He left home at the age of thirteen and never looked back.
*For OC’s only: How do you think your character will meet the Doctor in this ‘future’ he’s told you about?
Curtis probably will have watched the Doctor leave the tardis and will go over and try to opening it. Once he realizes that the tardis is locked he will commence with trying to break it open, assuming that something good is inside. The Doctor will have come back and caught Curtis in the act of trying to break open the tardis, but will just pull him in since he is running away from some other dangerous race at the time. Curtis will be forced to help save the world, but after words will probably still be scolded for attempting to break open the tardis.
