Name

Brock Mason

Concept

Ex-bandit plus dog

Power

Man's Best Friend: Brock is accompanied by Ace, a 2-year-old German Shepherd dog. Ace is a well-trained companion capable of fulfilling whatever task his master assigns, whether it is retrieving downed game during a hunting expedition, sniffing out rats or other unpleasant creatures, or protecting his master from harm.

Aspects

Hunter: The years following the Event have taught Brock harsh lessons on how to survive. He has learned how to track and hunt animals for food in the New Zealand wilderness, which over the years has made him very knowledgeable of local wildlife. Regardless of whether it crawls, scurries, or slithers, Brock probably knows what it is and how to kill it — and if not, he can make a good guess. Killing animals and creatures is one thing; taking another person's life is another thing entirely. Due to events in his past, if Brock is going to kill someone, he must have a very good reason.

Dragon's Breath: Brock's left arm bears the mark of all those who are a part of the infamous bandit gang led by his former friend, Drake Morris. Despite leaving the gang almost a year ago, this bandit mark can still cause him trouble. Some people will associate him with his former gang, which can cause trust issues and/or hostile attitudes towards him in certain situations. Because of this, Brock tries not to flaunt the fact that he used to be a part of the bandit gang. However, he was a part of the gang for 2 years and can play the part very well if he needs to, which can give him an edge when dealing with other bandits and certain people.

Don't Hurt My Dog: Brock and Ace share a bond stronger than blood. If Ace is ever in trouble, Brock will risk life and limb to protect him, no matter the cost.

Personal History

Brock Mason was just an average everyday guy before the earth-shattering cataclysm that changed the world forever. During the summer he took an extended vacation in New Zealand to spend some time with his friend, Drake Morris. He spent the next 2 months enjoying the new locale before the Event occurred.

After the Event, Brock was forced to find a way to survive in the new, unpredictable world he now lived in. Together with Drake, he formed a small band of survivors. As the group grew in size, it eventually resorted to intimidation, robbery, and even murder in order to survive. What began as a small group of people struggling to survive turned into little more than a bandit gang that placed little value in human life. Brock was not a violent person before the Event, but it's amazing what people will do in order to survive. He was a part of this gang for about two years before the atrocities committed by both himself and the gang began to wear on his conscience. Vowing to make up for his crimes one way or another, Brock left in order to forge a new path in life.

Along with his dog, Ace, Brock has spent the last year or so scavenging for supplies and hunting for food in order to survive in New Zealand. He hopes to one day find a way to travel back to the United States in order to search for the family he left behind. But until then, staying alive is on the top of his to-do list.
