Character Summary

Name: Oliver Francis Burke
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Pansexual
Relationship: Single

Hair: Dirty-Blond
Eyes: Ice-Blue
Height: 6'0"
Build: Athletic
Oliver is a general contractor, always having had an affinity for building things. When not working on some project or another, Oliver can often be found in various gathering places (clubs, bars, and such), though whether he's life of the party or merely haunting the outskirts depends on his mood (and the prodding of Erzulie).

He's clean-cut and dresses well, if not a bit conservatively. Sweaters, button-up shirts, and jeans are as casual as he'll go, though he'll often be seen in a suit and tie.

Character In-Depth

Oliver Oliver is not a timid man, but he does tend to err on the side of quiet, calm, and modesty. He's oddly wise for a man who hasn't hit the age of thirty, and prefers to listen rather than make a scene.

Much to his demon's chagrin.

Oliver is a man who works with his hands not because he has to, but because he legitimately enjoys it. For all his brilliance, poise, and potential, he's a man of simple tastes and simpler desires. He's painfully polite, exceedingly gentle, honestly far too good for this world.

How long that lasts, living in The City, is anyone's guess.

He has an odd relationship with Erzuli. One would think it almost mother-son, but no mother that Oliver had ever seen would push him to do 'the bad thing' the way Erzuli does. She's like a bad-influence best friend, pushing him to be more selfish and less kind, and he knows it's for his own good.

Being 'too nice' hasn't gotten him much. His moments of ruthlessness--almost entirely prodded by her--are what have pushed him into a rather lucrative career.

Oliver is a relative newcomer to The City, and no one can quite put their finger on why he came in the first place. He seems to have no real connections here, and yet has bought a small, fixer-upper of a house in Tonton Macoute, begun gathering clients for his contracting business, and has begun living a life.

The reality of it is that he can't go home. Not even if he really wanted to. His ex-fiance and her new lover have made it impossible for him

"Nice guys finish last,". That was the lesson. Nice guys finish last, and sometimes get their world and life destroyed in the process.

Hence, the new life. With a new home, a new business....

And a new purpose.

Demon Information

Smiley face"For those who value survival, sentimentality is not an option."

Of course she'd end up with a host who had no idea of his true potential.

Erzuli adores Oliver. She truly does. He's grown to be a lovely young man who could have anything and anyone he wanted, if only he put his mind and pursuits to those ends.

He rarely does.

And she pushes him. Oh...does she push him to do those things and sometimes those proddings aren't gentle. She's a creature who enjoys the finer things in life, and while Oliver would have been happy in a hovel somewhere, Erzuli is proud to claim she is the reason he lives a bit of the high life.

She's a creature of excess and vengeance and jealousy, and she guards her host with that arsenal of weapons. If she had her way, Oliver will learn more than his share of ruthlessness because he could certainly use it.

The world is not kind to gentle people. Of everyone, she'd think Oliver would know that.
