Leon – Yearbook Challenge

Leon's yearbook photo

After a lengthy discussion, Leon allowed me to post his yearbook photo from the year he graduated. He wouldn’t tell me exactly when it was taken, but I assume it must’ve been in the mid 90s. C’mon, Leon, it can’t be that bad. At least it’s in colour! Maybe he’s just shy about it, because he was still on crutches after his motorbike accident and the scar on his jaw was still fresh… Is it me, or was his hair a little fuller back then, too? No, just kidding!

Moran – Blending In

moran - blending in

Being on the run, Moran needs to be able to blend in anywhere. He often changes his looks and his complete style. His resources, however, are limited. If he is in the area, you’re likely to run into him at a local thrift store. One of his weaknesses might be his vain, though – he always strives to look his best.

Allow me to introduce… Marten Zann

marten zann

Name: Marten Zann
Age: 23
Born: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Occupation: violinist

Today, I’d like to introduce Marten, an aspiring violin virtuoso from Amsterdam. Despite his young age, Marten is a widower.

He met Annie, the love of his life, in music school when they were still teenagers. As soon as Annie turned 18, they got married and moved together, but their luck only lasted two short years before Annie became severely ill and passed within weeks.

If you ever get to meet Marten, you will find him very reserved, maybe he won’t even talk to you. Please don’t take it personally. He does try to carry on, but his only comfort is his music.

The Music of Marten Zann

OOC Information:

I have debated for a while whether to introduce Marten as a character. His tragic story sure isn’t for everyone – and isn’t meant to be. Annie never existed as a character, though, she is just part of his tale.
On the other hand, and the reason why I did introduce him here, is the fact I love to use him as a model. Maybe I am the only one to see the pain in his eyes, but knowing about him, his story, helps me create a certain mood for some photos. I am not sure if that makes sense to anyone else, but that’s the way I tick.
Marten’s name is inspired by the main character of my favourite webcomic, Questionable Content, and the short story The Music of Erich Zann by H.P. Lovecraft. The story is about a voiceless violinist who keeps away demons with his music.

Marten’s basic looks:
