Karson Vaunt

Player: Cason

Profession: Blacksmith and Electrical Engineer

Demeanor: He seems to always be in a good mood. He treats everyone he meets as if they have been friends for years. While he is clearly intelligent, he often misses social cues and lacks common sense.

Nature: Karson genuinely likes meeting new people. However, he rarely understands them. When someone finally gets close to him, he is loyal to a fault. His alone time in his forge is sacred to him because his self worth comes mainly from what he can do and make. Every day is seen as a new opportunity to be better and leave the last day behind, only bringing the good forward. He is excited by any opportunity to use his skills to help others in whatever way he can but is easily depressed when his efforts are not enough. Despite his openness to others, his trust is not cheap. He keeps many thing to himself, especially his past.

Description: Karson is 5'11" and muscular from years working in his forge. His hands are large and calloused. His skin is reddish tan and his hair is short and black. He has a strong southern accent and a deep gentle voice that is always rough after spending hours in his workshop. He wears Redwing boots, jeans, a flannel that always smells of smoke, glasses, and a singed leather apron with deep pockets that hold many of his tools.

Background History

Karson was born in Texas in 1973 to Jeremy and Tessa Vaunt. He and his mother were physically abused by Jeremy. They fled when Karson was 12. His mother was remarried to a blacksmith named Chris Leery who trained and took care of Karson, even paying for him to attend Texas Tech where he got his degree in electrical engineering. In 1994, Jeremy found them and killed Tessa and Chris. Karson used his skills to fashion devices and weapons, imagining revenge but never seeking it. He was noticed by the foundation when the local police discovered his illegal weapons stash and arrested him in 2004. They hired him on for an R&D Weapons Specialist position.
