Name: Daniel “Dan” Tahmoh Foster
Appearance: He has messy black hair styled in quiff (see pictures of Dan Smith for reference) and ghostly grey almond-shaped eyes, which sometimes appear blue-grey, though that’s not their true colour. Dan is pretty pale, and has a faded scar along his right cheek, though it’s so faint that most people don’t really notice it. He has an angular nose as well as pale, thin lips and slightly curved eyebrows. His face is more of an oval shape, and he has dimples as well as a great jawline (i’m so sorry). Dan has a lean, lanky build. He has clear skin, which I would kill to have, and is relatively tall, standing at about 6’1.
Standard Clothing Style: He dresses in a very casual manner, as it seems less conspicuous. He tries to blend in, most places he goes.
Clothing: Dan tends to wear band t-shirts and jeans (either blue or black; no skinny jeans, no ripped jeans. absolutely hates shorts), as well as charcoal grey low-top Converse. In the colder months, when he absolutely has to, he’ll wear a grey zip-up hoodie. Dan’s band t-shirts include but aren’t limited to: The Script, Coldplay, Bastille, AC/DC, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Andrew McMahon, Walking On Cars, Imagine Dragons, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, All Time Low, Linkin Park. He prefers to wear shirts which are predominantly black, grey, or blue, but wouldn’t mind wearing a pride flag.
Personality: [INFP-T] Dan is extremely introverted and idealistic. He always looks for a hint of good in the worst of people, even if he doesn’t realise that he’s doing it. He’s very sensitive and more emotional than most, making him the punchline among friends. One of his best qualities, perhaps, is his loyalty, because once you gain it, along with his trust, he’ll stay loyal until the end (or until you break him or go against his beliefs). He’d take a bullet for his closest friends and family. Dan often ponders the reason for human existence, and spends most of his time in his own head, thinking. He probably wouldn’t say most of his conclusions aloud, instead choosing to write them down or express them via music. He’s definitely creative, but he chooses to keep his creations away from other people because it makes him feel very self-conscious and vulnerable. He loves to laugh. He can be very pessimistic at times, but he knows when to express his thoughts out loud and when to keep his mouth shut. Dan is very good at keeping secrets, and even though his guilt may get to him, he plans the absolute worst outcomes so as to discourage himself from giving the secret away. While he doesn’t seem the type and could never carry out a murder (or any type of physical violence, really) in real life, he sometimes imagines how he go about committing homicide, and the measures he would take to prevent himself from getting caught. Dan doesn’t often contribute to conversations, unless he knows the person or people well. He’s a little awkward, but he can usually shove this aside. Dan is very empathetic, and often puts himself in other people’s situations. When he makes decisions, he tends to think more about how the decision will impact people emotionally, instead of thinking analytically. More often than not, Dan proves to have good judgment despite this, and tends to be quite fair. He hates situations that aren’t just. Dan dislikes dealing with people for too long, and numbers bore him. He needs alone time, and may push people away or snap at them just to get it. He has social anxiety and overthinks things. Perhaps one of his biggest flaws is that he can be rather too idealistic, and needs to accept that not all people come from a background that will justify making bad decisions. He just doesn’t get that people can have bad intentions. Dan lacks a good self-image, and can be very insecure and self-concious. He has a low self-esteem. Dan can be too altruistic at times as well, and may see himself as selfish when really he’s being the exact opposite. He doesn’t give up easily, refuses to accept defeat, and can be very passionate and hard-working. He tends to be very private and withdrawn, therefore hard to get to know, but once you really get to know him, he’s awesome. He will fight for what he believes is right. He can be unorganised, messy, and relatively forgetful. He has a gift with language and a unique sense of humour. Dan’s definitely considerate of other people, and would consider himself to be a dreamer.
Likes: Night, darkness, rain, greys, blues, and greens. Rock and indie music, anything to do with music, playing guitar, writing songs, learning keyboard. Soccer, winter, reading, writing, photography. Dan’s always had an interest in the arts. Films, particularly thriller, mystery, action, and fantasy. Being alone, mythology, words, metaphors. Learning languages and instruments.
Dislikes: Politics, summer, bright lights, loud noises, public speaking, spiders. Monkeys and wind are the bane of his existence. Science, maths, most history (except WWII, which he finds interesting). Inequality, having to make hard decisions, saying no, letting people down. He hates it when anyone close to him isn’t in a good mood and will do anything to cheer them up. Buttons, like the ones you use to craft (thanks to Coraline). Smoking, homophobia, transphobia, or any type of queerphobia. Dolls, horror movies, romance movies and novels (unless it’s TFIOS). County, rap/hip hop, and heavy metal music.
Stance on Being Carded: He doesn’t really mind, and it actually kind of excites him because it’s like something out of a film, but just a note - he’s not exactly a killer or anything along the lines of one. He would absolutely freak out if he ever had to take someone’s life or even harm them in the slightest, even if it were an accident.
Permission to Kill Off: Yes, here is the permission slip to take my cinnamon roll’s life.
Weapon of Choice: He’d probably go for a halberd, which is essentially a cross between a battle axe and a spear/staff.
Seal: A grey delta/equilateral triangle.
Anything else?: He’s bisexual, and has a slight Irish accent.
Background: His family is originally from Ireland, and always kind of moved around a lot. Because of this, he never really opened up to anyone, because he thought that his family would just pack up and move again. When he was twelve, they moved to the US, which didn’t exactly make him happy. He was distraught and spent two years as a complete loner in school until he met Fitz, who quickly became one of his best friends. When he was fourteen, he came out as bisexual, and everybody at school took it badly except for Fitz. The rest bullied him relentlessly. His family took it well, of course. Fitz came out as gay soon after that, and a few months later they started dating. It didn’t last long, because his family moved halfway across the States. He took it pretty hard. They didn’t move after that, but Dan always dreamed of going back and finding Fitz (no, they never got each other’s phone numbers or contact info. Dan isn’t even 100% sure that Fitz is his real name). Dan’s immediate family consists of Emily and Jackson Foster, his mum and dad, and Ella, his younger sister who is currently 16 years old. Dan and Ella are very close and he visits his family often. He has two dogs; Wynter and Mozart. Wynter is a red tri-colour beagle and Mozart is a lemon beagle. When he was younger, he used to have a beagle named Zoe who had been there his entire life and died when Dan was 13, so he didn’t take it well and prefers beagles to any other dog breed.
Extra: Nope, but I might make a character called Fitz in the next couple of days...
