This is my first time creating a character for rp of any kind, so let me know if I've done something wrong :D
Full Name: Edward Wright
Aliases: None
Birthdate: March 3, 1873
Place of Birth: Texas
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 165 lbs
Build: Fit
Languages: English
Occupation: Gun Smith, owner of "Wright's Guns and Knives"
Ethnicity: English American

Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown, starting to grey
Scars: Calloused hands and a few small burns.
Attire: Pragmatic, workers clothing, aprons, tool belts, but he likes to keep his cloths as clean as he can.
Accessories: Nothing much.
WOC: Conceals a 5 shot, .45 snub nose revolver. It may not look like much, but with Edward's over pressured hollow point rounds, it punches above its weight. He also has a Ross rifle for hobby shooting.
Appearance: Wright's appearance is that of a typical worker, but he does talk and behave like an educated man.

Personality: Wright has been called an arrogant son-of-a-bitch before. He does have somewhat of an aggressive negotiation style, but his arrogance is mostly a persona he puts on in front of customers. Well, before he moved to St Louis anyway. His negotiation style has become much less agressive since setting up shop in St. Louis, now he mostly just follows the his costumers orders to the letter, no questions asked. Coming from a confederate family, he does have some... traditional opinions. Particularly in relation to people of African descent, Yankees, gays, and what have you. Edward beliefs are based on a logic rather than blind hatred, so he could be proven wrong or persuaded. Edward is sometimes consumed by loneliness, as he has been in a position to be making friends in St Louis, and he has lost everyone that matters to him over the years.
Special skills: Gunsmithing, typically specializing in higher orders; bullet pressing, the occasional blade making when asked, but he prefers guns.
Hobbies: He likes long range target shooting. He finds it relaxing, and a good way to test the guns he services.
Weaknesses: He is kinda racist, so that could defiantly get him into some trouble. He is also not much of
Fears: He is in a bit of an existential crisis at the moment. His quest for revenge has bared no fruit so far. He fears never finding out what happened to his daughter, he fears what would happen if he did, he is afraid that his daughters death was his fault, and he fears that he is making the biggest mistake of his life.
Likes: He likes shooting and tinkering.
Dislikes: Yankees, police officers.
Religion: He and God aren't on speaking terms.

History: Edward's grandfather was a wealthy slave owner, and an officer in the confederate army. After the Civil war took both his family wealth, and his grandfather, his father, the youngest of his family, apprenticed under a gunsmith to survive. He passed on his knowledge of gunsmithing, as well as his education.

Edward grew up, and married, and had a son, Alex, and daughter, Emily. He lost his son to the Great War, and his wife to Spanish Influenza. Some years later, his daughter went to collage at St Louis university, a place they couldn't afford, but she told him not to worry about it. She had good work at a prestigious hotel and was making plenty of money in St Louis. Edward felt uneasy about the situation, but trusted that she knew what she was doing. He had no idea that she was working as a call girl until she was murdered. He had "gang affiliations" was all the police ever found out. This did not satisfy Edward.

He moved to St Louis from Texas about 6 months ago. He was been trying to somehow get connected to the local criminal underworld to try and find out who killed his daughter, but so far the gangs of St Louis haven't exactly rolled out the carpet for an outsider.

Orientation: Strait
Love Interest: None (wife deceased)
Quotes: "If you think it's too good to be true, that's because I haven't told you what you are paying me for it."
