Notable Traits: Friendly, polite, and diplomatic. Known for his mediator personality and desire to resolve things peacefully.
Darrow Westholme is a lawyer, mediator, and diplomat who always wants to solve his (and other people’s) problems through diplomatic methods and peaceful negotiation. He hates to use violence to solve a problem, always trying to use diplomacy instead. Even if it puts him in danger. He also has a strong desire to “be in the room where it happens” and often tries to involve himself in meetings in order to help problem-solve. He responds strongly against those that he sees as trying to harm the dignity of others unfairly.
His age has led to him being somewhat modern, but in a quaint old-timey way. He likes old movies, uses old slang terms from time to time, and embodies the old-timey friendless of earlier years. Darrow is a big foodie and is always on the lookout for new, exciting restaurants. He is a fan of the Giovanni and loves to do business with them, as he finds their professionalism to be enjoyable. On the other hand, he also likes the Anarch movement and its members because their directness and honesty strikes him as refreshing.
He currently resides in his domain of Downey, California, where he works to help bridge political relations in a place of uneasy peace as a neutral mediator.
