Role Description

Ben Holt: (Lead) quiet and reserved man. Very well groomed and meticulous in hygiene. He sticks to routine and a tight schedule. He’s cooks the same lists of food on rotation because he knows he’ll like them. Simplicity helps him keep order, and keeping order helps him bring meaning to life. Risk is something he has managed his whole life. He calculates as many moves as he can foresee in order to prepare himself. He often sacrifices human connection at the expense of his own self interest and comfort. Ben doesn’t raise his voice, but is a deep thinker and processes tragedy in ways difficult for outsiders to interpret or understand due to a lack of communication. His occupation is architecture and was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. Ben likes to builds models: plane, cars, buildings, he enjoys the meticulously attention to detail models require. Ben is a prolific writer. He keeps sketches of buildings and designs and writes notes and thoughts throughout his day in journals.
