Role Description

Carl: (Supporting) wise, mysterious, a true gem of Baltimore bum society, and he has an uncanny yet random ability to misread social situations; he somewhat reluctantly becomes Paul’s mentor and plugs him into the bum community. How Carl found himself on the streets is unknown; however, his specialty is territorial dumpster diving and can collection; he lives in empty dumpsters. Surprisingly not unkempt; he wears a small rotation of T-shirts and sweatshirts, always topped with the same tweed jacket; in summer it's nothing but wifebeater tanks and his tweed jacket. By showing Paul the streets and introducing him to other bums, Carl guides the story. Episode two and several future episodes will be “Carl-heavy”; however, there are episodes in which he will serve as bookends at the beginning and end of episodes. Dry wit and a mild insanity allow him to justify his choices and carry himself with blind pride; this sense of pride is where Carl and Paul both meet and clash at the same time.
