Role Description

Eamonn: (Lead) a down on his luck guy who has taken to committing the occasional home robbery in order to get by living his life, a man with very few meaningful personal connections - a defense mechanism he's developed over the years as life has dealt him a series of tough hands. His father was killed in a car accident when he was 15. This was devastating to both him and his mother, who started drinking heavily, becoming abusive and bringing home men. Eamonn began to resent her, and vice versa, leading them to fight endlessly. He began staying with friends to escape his home life. When the charity of one friend ran out, he would return home until the situation there became untenable, and then would find somewhere else to stay. He began to retreat into himself, creating an emotional shell to protect himself from feeling once more the pain that his parents inflicted on him. He dropped out of school, but read incessantly. His mistrust of authority has led him down the path of intellectual paranoia and he's become a conspiracy theorist. But this is not who he really is, not who he was meant to be. He wants to break out of this cycle of loneliness that has been his life recently - he wants a friend. His one place of peace and happiness is in the woods his father brought him to when he was growing up.
