Name: Jack Thomas Burden
Nickname: Jackie (family), Burden (co-workers/friends)
Birthplace: San Diego, California
Appearance: Jack is about 5'9 bordering 6 feet. He is well built for his job calls for it and works out often to keep it that way. He has short, dark brown hair with crisp blue eyes and tan skin(San Diego skin tone, baby). He is mostly a suit man for work. Black is often the color of his clothes though the white shirt is often there as well. Jeans when he's not working with the t-shirts of many colors. Though, he is almost ALWAYS wearing his favorite full lenght black coat when working nights or the weather calls for it.
Personality: Jack is a laid-back kind of guy. Sarcasm is his best friend and he is often quick witted when he fills he needs to be. Though, he is quiet. He is more of a wallflower than the guy that would go out there and dance. A tireless investigator when he has an open case which causes him not to have much of a social life. A daydreamer, a womanizer(when in the mood which is one every once in a while. He's attractive and he knows it).
Special abilities/talents: Jack has an amazing shot. He had a fancy for guns since he was a young boy and his Father took him to the gun ranges. He's been practicing ever since and finds going to the gun range a stress reliever to this day. He plays the piano like a champ since his mother wanted him to learn though he very rarely sits down to do so now. He doesn't consider it a "manly" thing to do.
Level: Level 1 Human. Alliance for the win! (sorry Warcraft humor ;p)
Preferred Prey: umm cows? ;p His favorite food is steak
Jack Burden was born and raised in San Diego. He traveled with his family across the US but has never left the country. He went to school at a local community college and joined the police force to follow in his father's footsteps. His childhood friend, Mark Sheppard, became a police officier as well and both of them worked hard and rose though the ranks to become one of the top detective teams.
It wasn't until Mark's murder that Jack started to question all that he believed in. Mark was killed by a drug dealer to keep his ring a secret. These thoughts consumed Jack until he solved the murder. In a police abuse, the Drug Lord was killed and Jack thought that finally he would be able to let his friend rest in peace.
But, he was wrong. He found he needed to move out of San Diego. To start a new life in a new place.
-He smokes. Heavily. Sometimes a pack a day when he's stressed and he's been doing it since he was 19. He knows that effects his job, but he doesn't care. He cares about very little, but getting his job done. That and his family.
-He tends to open his mouth and inserts his foot when he does speak, though he is quick to apologize when he thinks its due
-He's a brooder. He dulls on problems and cries in his soup without the crying. He tends to believe that when bad things happen, it's his fault somehow and spends most of his time blaming himself and trying to figure out how he could have provented the situation.
-He's smart and quick on his feet. This trait helped him raise quickly in the police force and solve many cases that would most likely have stayed open.
-He's not a heartless SOB. He cares for people and in this it's a straight because it keeps him focused. He works hard to solve his cases to keep his streets safe.
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Preferred PB (played-by): Joaquin Phoenix
