Red is a twenty four year old man of mixed Native American and European ancestry. If he took care of himself he would be very good looking. He is physically imposing, standing a full 2m, with broad shoulders and a muscular physique.
Born Red Gidge, he has lived a hard life on and off the Wahnapitae First Nation Reserve . He is intelligent enough to do well in life, but vulnerable to anyone who wants to take advantage of his big heart and generous nature.
When he was a boy his father was shot in the back in their family home. The attack seemed to come out of nowhere, but a few years later the rest of his family were killed in another shooting. Just six years old at the time, Red reacted to the attack by pulling a quiver of spears - a family heirloom - off the wall, and stabbing two of the attackers. They shot him too, but fled before finishing the job. Even with the DNA evidence on the spear, the killers were never identified. Red carries a few samples with him in a small vial on a chain around his neck. One day.
After some terrible experiences in the foster care system, Red was adopted by the Cooper family who lived on a farm outside Sudbury proper. They were hardworking, caring, tough, and fair. He struggled with his temper and PTSD from seeing his family killed, eventually self-medicating with alcohol and escapism into VR games. They have never given up on him, however, and are part of why he is still around.
Grace's love of IAR games was a wedge between them - he played IVR exclusively at that time. Now both play both styles, especially IAR games where mounted riders are a key component. Most of their pay goes to memberships in Dream Park: Sudbury, where he plays the Warrior to her Cleric.
On 2034-03-01 Red and Grace were in a Dream Park adventure when something went very wrong. They were defending a village against a Goblin Horde. The battle should have been a survivable challenge, but it turned into chaos when Red seemed to lose his mind. When he ran out of Goblins to kill he turned on the villagers, and ultimately died from Grace's spells while he ran her through with his staff-spear. The Park authorities could find no evidence for an in-game reason (enemy wizard spell, etc.) for Red to go berserk. His character has been suspended. Red was stunned at his loss of control. Grace was frightened too, but believed Red when he said he had no idea what happened.
That night, in their room at the stable, Red flew into a rage. Grace got the hell out of there, and called Mr. Trevella for help. Red was screaming incoherently that "she was promised to me" and "they can't take her away" while taking potshots at the stables where she was holed up with Trav when Deke arrived following a tip from an old friend military brother, Abram Jenkins.

My sense of touch extends to the future so I am aware of anything I could touch in the next few seconds. This can overwhelm me, making it difficult for me to really sense my surroundings as they are.
As I gain more experience with my strange new sense, my brain is getting better at interpreting the new inputs. Sometimes if feels like objects are smeared out across spaces. Other times a dangerous object feels like the kind of danger it represents - so a knife might feel like slashy pain.
