Appearance

White-Latino male of absolutely average height and slightly overweight, scars across knuckles and one on his forehead, and almost always dressed in heavy flannel and denim. A set of AR safety glasses, an omnitool, and a small zipcase with several pens and a notebook decorate his pockets. His hair is always just short enough to run dirty fingers through, but not quite long enough to actually style.

Backstory

Kaleb lived a fairly standard life, starting out on the edge of one of the nicer favelas and eventually leaving Rio on a scholarship for a technical magnet school in the Southwestern US, eventually ending up working for aerospace giant Boeing-Lockheed International. His constant struggle against corporate politics and traditional bureaucracy often sees him sent to unfortunate locations to solve unique problems. The pattern of being just skilled enough not to be fireable likely won't last forever, so Kaleb banks most of his pay against that day.

More than once Kaleb has gotten into trouble for sticking his nose where - he's told - it doesn't belong. Sometimes he just notices things that are supposed to be secrets while doing his work. Sometimes he gets a suspicion about something and just needs to chase it down.

Relationships
