Custom Title: C.A.S
Full Name: David Reagan
Aliases: One-shot. Whether it's due to his infamous style of eliminating his target or his well-known capability on the pool table remains unknown.
Birthdate: 29 November 1896
Place of Birth: St Louis, Missouri, USA
Height: 176 cm, or 5'7" to 5'8"
Weight: 70 kg, or 154 lbs
Build: A bit muscled, above average
Languages: English
Occupation: Hitman
Ethnicity: Irish

Eyes: Green
Hair: Blonde, with tendency to seem red
Scars: None you can see when he's dressed
Attire: Always wears a grey raincoat, a grey hat and a pair of polished leather shoes
Accessories: Nothing notable
WOC: Conceals a Colt.45 M1911 in his apartment but seldom carries a gun. Pulling a job he usually uses a Springfield M1903 just like the one he used during the war in Europe.
Appearance: Reagan values neatness a lot when it comes to appearance but is neither clean nor organized in his personal life. You definitely can find him unshaven for days if he never needs to get out of his apartment. He has the look of an obviously frightening man with an unpredictable temper and often gloomy expressions. No matter standing or sitting, he always maintains a straightened up posture.

Personality: One-shot Reagan is the last person anyone would like to encounter when he is pulling a job, because if one sees him, that means one's dead. However in most cases Reagan is never found near the scene. He always plans his job carefully in advance, leaving no possibility for slightest mistakes, which makes him very good at what he does and also very expensive for those who hire him.
The fact that Reagan considers shooting his targets from afar as his first option is not due to his fear of having to look at his targets in the eye or blast their brains out in front of himself. He believes in 'one shot one kill' as he learned in the army serving as a sharpshooter. And one must be quick and accurate to do so before his target realizes and fires back which is another code Reagan relies on.
Reagan doesn't talk much, simply because he doesn't feel like talking. He doesn't feel like socializing either because he doesn't have the desire or demand to do so. In spite of living alone and keeping to himself most of the time, he never really feels lonely or needs any company. But that doesn't mean he doesn't make friends or cherish friendship. Reagan has a small group of fairly close friends whose loyalty he reciprocates with his own.
Reagan always tries to remain cool even under fire, which can be ascribed partially to his training in the army, partially to his own nature. Instead of feeling frustrated he analyses, which saved him under dire circumstances many times. However, when strong emotions are required to comprehend, he still analyses, making him somehow a bit numb towards other people's feelings when he's not familiar with such feelings or hasn't experienced them himself.
Basically, Reagan is a pessimist. As a pious Catholic, he knows he's going to hell afterwards and never hesitates to admit so. However he blames who he is instead of what he does - that is when he ever blames anything - since he instinctively identifies himself as how he was brought up and instructed. Thus he hardly wishes to amend his condition. The only thing Reagan wants to make up for concerns his sister who was raised, just like him, in an orphanage and suffers, at least in Reagan's opinion, for her brother's vicious crimes.
Special skills: Handy with all firearms especially a rifle, shooting from long distance
Hobbies: Playing pool
Weaknesses: Reagan never refuses his sister Rebecca.
Fears: Finding out that his younger sister is actually working as a high-class prostitute which she most certainly is
Likes: The bullfinch he raises in a cage in his apartment
Dislikes: Humid climate, rain and mud, also wires. They make him uncomfortable.
Religion: Raised a catholic

History: David Reagan was born into a poor family of Irish origin. His father was hanged when Reagan was small as a result of a brutal murder he committed so as to raise money to feed his family. While his mother(who died eventually in an asylum) became too depressed and emotionally unstable, David and his sister were put in the care of a local orphanage sponsored by the catholic church where they spent most of their childhood.
When Reagan grew up, he enrolled in the army to serve as a foot soldier. Majorly owing to his good eyesight and fast movement he was selected a sharpshooter. During WWI Reagan's main duty was to lie in the trenches, look for careless soldiers on the opposite front and then take care of them, with a rifle. In this way, he picked up his craft.
After the war Reagan attempted to conscientiously earn a livelihood at first. But being a mass murderer as he was on the front, he never believed he would ever be forgiven. That was when an honest man fell. Hanging around with all other fallen souls in the underworld, Reagan came to realize what he was able to do, or put in his own words, what he was coached to do. He therefore chose his own path.
For quite a long while Reagan made money enough both for supporting himself and for sponsoring his sister Rebecca studying in college. However when Rebecca finally found out that her brother only subsidized her by murdering people, she dropped out of college by her own will, which made Reagan very disappointed.
A few years later, when Reagan was preparing for an assassination in New York, he met his best friend in life Fritz Kracauer. The latter was at the time playing for clubs in exchange for liquor. Reagan loved the playing a lot. For five months he went every weekend to watch Fritz play, sitting on the very same seat every time, until one day Fritz didn't show up. Reagan searched the whole town and found Fritz vomiting in a dark alley. It was him who sent Fritz home. Since then they become close friends.

Orientation: Unclear. Considering his special relationship with Fritz Kracauer some may say he's homosexual. Also considering the two never had any sexual intercourse others may think it's much more profound than that.
Love Interest: None. He doesn't even have a known history.
Quotes: 'You should feel guilty for not being able to end that one's suffering with one simple shot.'
