Physical Description

Twelve Gauge stands 6'6“ but somehow manages not to be an imposing figure since he is as thin as a rail. Having grown up in abject poverty, he tends to dress formally and ostentatiously all of the time, usually wearing tailored suits made of exotic materials. Despite this, he tends to wear these suits several days in a row, and his nocturnal leisure activities usually leave his clothing irrevocably stained by the second morning. He wears his hair slicked to one side and keeps his mustache trimmed pencil-thin.


Twelve Gauge is talkative and quarrelsome and generally hates being around other people. He's more the type to talk at other people out of anger rather than talking with them. Twelve Gauge's idea of a good time is crashing someone else's party, kicking it up a notch, breaking something, and picking a fight.


Twelve Gauge was born in YE 23 in Funky City, Planet Nepleslia. He never knew his birth parents who gave him up for adoption. After spending time in a series of foster homes, he ran away at the age of 13 and began squatting in an abandoned building with several other runaways who called themselves the “orphans.”

The “orphans” shared the responsibilities involved in looking after each other and their “orphanage,” but otherwise largely ignored each other. For example, it was always someone's responsibility to stock the communal fridge, but nobody asked how the food was acquired, and nobody ever ate with anyone else.

This suited Theo, as Twelve Gauge was known, as he was a belligerent young man angry at the world for what felt like an unfair lot. Theo usually resorted to theft to support his share of the “orphanage” food budget. His slender build gave him a natural advantage when it came to climbing into windows unseen. At the age of 16, he earned his nickname by stealing a shotgun from under someone's bed and keeping it under his own rather than hawking it.

In YE 40, at the age of 17, Twelve Gauge was caught in the act but sent to an actual orphanage rather than serve time in juvenile detention. Though the orphanage felt surprisingly like his previous “orphanage,” he still found himself in constant trouble when he suddenly had much more free time since he no longer had to contribute to food gathering.

Shortly before he turned 18, he was caught breaking into a luxury apartment. The owner of the apartment, Troy Dongle, cornered Twelve Gauge and started to call the police, but stopped when the boy started to unleash a vile but eloquent tirade. As it turned out, Mr. Dongle was an executive at the Nepleslian News Network and saw unrefined potential in the boy. Mr. Dongle offered him a deal: read a script into a microphone for an hour, and in exchange, he wouldn't press charges.

Reading scripts alone in a closed sound booth was a dream come true for the misanthrope, and he began to take any announcement gigs he could get his hands on.
