NOTE: Hope it's okay that I used my own profile sheet---everything on yours is on this or added to this, so I hope it's okay. ^^

Name: Lewis Clowes

Side: Union

Age: 25

Home State: Conneticut

Physical Appearance: Strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. He is tall and narrow-shouldered, and isn't particularly attractive nor well-muscled. His eyebrows are sketchy-looking, and his nose and features are sharp. He has the appearance of being tired, which he normally is, and usually has rings around his eyes from staying up late. His hair comes down to his chin, and dresses casually when he's not in his scrubs, normally wearing something already stained or worn out.

Habits: Rapping his hands on tables, messing with/doing things with his hands, humming, and talking to himself.

Personality: Lewis pessimistic and very sarcastic . Half of what he says is to himself, and he has a tendency to joke about going insane on a regular basis. It could be said that he's somewhat of a slacker, and performs everything with the bare minimum of enthusiasm, which is true for the most part. Still, he has a strong sense of duty and doesn't want to desert the military--he plans to serve until the war is over, mostly because he feels like his skills in the medical field are more appreciated ont he frontlines. He's a man of dry wit and deadpan humor, and dislikes going to great deals of effort.

Faults? As previously stated, he's rather unenthusiastic, not to mention he has a very hard time he's admitting he's wrong. He has the tendency to irritate people with his disconnected perseonality. People sometimes get sick of his constant stream of negativity.

Occupation: Medical doctor and Surgeon

Fears: Being killed while he's treating a patient, having the medical base blown up by combatant forces, being taken prisoner. He feels rather guilty about these, realizing that the people that he treats have gone through this, but at the same time, he feels that being a doctor has made him more nervous abotu getting shot ande the like because he's seen victims.

Likes: Having grown up in the northern part of Conneticut, he has a love of cold weather and the sea because it reminds him of home. He enjoys reading mariner novels in his free time, however hard they may be to find when one is on the battlefield. He wants to own a rig when he goes back home, even though it's a rather unrealistic wish judging by the fact that he isn't particularly well-off.

Dislikes: He's not a big fan of art or literature, and has minimal appreciation for it. He doesn't really like horses that much, and hates camping, but with this in mind he somehow still signed up for the military, probably under the impression that he would be sleeping in a more building-esque place of residence. He doesn't like horses for reasons he doesn't quite understand; something about them just frustrates him.

Talents: Lewis is a skilled doctor and has a fair sense of intuition, as well as the fact that he has steady hands. Outside of his career, he's a fairly good swimmer and knows how to steer a small boat and fish.

Relationships (these can be decided at later points): N/A

History: He was born in a northern city in Conneticut, and grew up by the sea, which sparked an interest in ships and whaling boats from a young age. He decided that he wanted to become a doctor when he was a teenager, and went to medical school for the required term before graduating to work at a hospital not too far from where he lived. However, when the war started he decided that he would serve because he felt that his skills would be better used.

Rank: Captain

Here are some of my more minor characters...I plan to make a confederate 'main' and a couple of less detailed ones, too.

Name: Charlie O'Harrel

Age: 17

Side: Union

State: Delaware

Rank: Lieutenant

Apperance: Reddish-copper hair and freckles that run across the bridge of his nose. He's not particularly attractive and is about average height.

Personality: Wily and proud. He's loyal and enjoys a good challenge, and is rather immature. He's overly enthusiastic about the war in most peoples' opinions and is reckless. He looks up to will as a father figure and has serious delusions of valor.

Background: Charlie signed up for the military on his own will (lying about his age), and has already been shot in the hand once, causing the loss of two fingers on his left hand. He's been a soldier for about three months now.

Other: N/A

...

Name: William Foulkland

Age: 36

Side: Union

State: New Jersey

Rank: Captain

Apperance: What he considers painfully average--dark brown hair and hazel eyes. He has a slight charismatic element about him, and normally has a five o'clock shadow.

Personality: Calm and reserved. He doesn't normally speak, but when he does, what he says is usually pretty important. He's protective over Charlie and is very patient.

Background: He joined by his own will, leaving his family's farm to go and serve. Since then he has had a goal of advancing to at least the rank of Major before he leaves the military.

Other: N/A

rayney

Name: Emma Collins

Age: 24

Side: Union

State: New York

Rank: She's actually a nurse so... N/A

Apperance: Emma is slightly petite with long brown hair that is almost always pulled back in a neat bun. Her green eyes are known for being bright, but she tends to keep them hidden under a set of bangs that loosely border her face.

Personality: Emma is usually quiet most of the time, but, once she knows someone well, she can be clever and funny. Her mind does have a tendency to wander elsewhere at times so don't worry if she starts looking off into the distance at random moments.

Background: Emma's father was a doctor at a hospital in New York, and her mother died from influenza (maybe it was swine flu? but it didn't exist back then) when she was only eight years old. From then on, Emma studied medicine under the guidance of her father becoming one of the most well trained nurses in her state.

Other: Emma HATES raccoons. No one knows why, but Emma will freak at just the mention of those bandit-faced creatures.
