Name: David Asher
Age: 27
Gender: Male
Occupation: Lawyer

Starting Inventory: Snakewood Derby Cane, Digital Camera, Harvard Class Ring

Description: Considered tall as a child, Dave never topped six feet. Although noone would ever refer to him as handsome, Dave isn't exactly ugly so much as awkward. His ears stick out too much, his nose slightly too big, the only thing that doesn't seem out of place is the intelligence sparkling in his dark green eyes. He keeps his hair short and combed back, and despite the fact that he is on vacation, can typically be seen wearing a white button up shirt with the collar undone and the sleeves rolled up along with dress pants. He is never seen without his cane, and he cannot walk without it's support.

Short Bio: For as long as he could remember, David's father had encouraged him to play sports. Soccer, Football, Rugby, Baseball, if it involved a team, David had played it at least once. With his father's insistence and help, David became the guy that everyone picked first, excelling at almost every sport he played. As a sophomore in high school, he was placed on the varsity football and basketball teams to the dismay of some of the older players. After several beers, the players decided to get back at Dave by pranking him. They devised a plan involving a 'ghost serial killer' chasing him in a car, but the execution did not go off as planned. Dave became so frightened that he lost control of his father's SUV and flipped it, resulting in numerous injuries which ended his sports career. Despite the years of physical therapy, Dave was never again able to walk without a cane.

After the accident, Dave withdrew from social life. He spent his days closeted in his room with only the family cat for company, playing video games, reading, and doing school work, which although it turned him into a social pariah, raised his grades enough that he was accepted at Harvard. Despite this opportunity, David couldn't gather enough money to attend, and so he was forced to attend Purdue University. At Purdue, Dave opened up slightly, making a few friends, but ended up engrossing himself instead in his course work, graduating with a major in economics. Working throughout college, he managed to save up enough money to attend Harvard Law School, where he graduated with honors. At Harvard, he met and proposed to his fiancée, Elizabeth Strandle, who has helped coax him out of his shell. Despite his qualifications, Dave's social ineptitude caused him to miss out on all of the top paying employment opportunities, and so he ended up in the back of a smaller firm researching for the courtroom sharks. Although fairly satisfied with his work, the stress of sixty hour work weeks was getting to David, and Natalie's sudden obsession with planning for a wedding wasn't helping. Somewhere in between staring at wedding dress after wedding dress and tasting cake, his parents decided to give him and Natalie an early wedding gift, two second class tickets on a cruise liner, the Calypso. After a short flight and a long taxi ride, the pair arrived and boarded the ship, having left everything work related behind. The two spent the entire first day giving the room a thorough 'inspection' and are just now venturing outside their cabin.
