Characterization Chart for "Brad"
Age is roughly 28.
Sex (gender) is male.

Hair Color: flat black.
Eye Color: Brownish-Grey.
Skin Color: white but tanned a bit.
Posture: tends to stand roughly straight, but with a very slight slouch.
Appearance: His most notable trait is a scruffy black beard that is looking like he hasn't shaved in a few days, but isn't fully pronounced.
Defects: These are mostly to his judgment, not physical defects- he's a bit foolish.

Education: At least High-School Educated.
Home Life: Pretty much lives alone (or so we think!)
Religion: Not a major factor in his life.
Race/Nationality: his race is probably Western European, or just plain European, as for his Nationality: pretty certain he is (or was) a US Citizen.
Place in Community: unknown- probably just plain young male looking to make his way in the world.
Political Affiliation: No known one, probably not a major part of his life.
Amusement: hanging out with friends, playing tricks on people about who he is.
He's a ghost in denial about being a ghost for most of the story. He and his friend Jerry played a number of tricks on people for the past six months, then they decided to move on and 'get their report cards' as I often think of it. He's in denial until his friend Jerry informs him of what happened and helps him to recall their deaths- at which point a conflict almost breaks out between them, but their bond is too strong. He's also a bit foolish as to what entertainments to engage in: getting drunk is one of his pastimes. He's basically the unstable one who seeks fun in bad situations and places- kind of a "prodigal child" in the context of the Biblical Parable of the "Prodigal Son".
