Timing!
I AM My Brother's Keeper!

right-aligned image
Little blobs of smoke scud across the horizon, lit up by a sunset that seems to light the sky on fire. It's all the dust in the air around here, now that the land is dead... gives the light somethin' to sit on. Far away, the bullet factories keep giving people something to do. Here, right now, a show is about to happen. There is tension in the air, a kind of almost desperate anticipation. The up-and-coming human tornado waits beside the ring, but his partner is nowhere to be seen. Will 'The Twister' be going it alone? Will Mama Swap's baby boy be standing off by himself‽

ˇˇBLAMMA
KA POW!!


With a flash of light and burst of sound, pyrotechnics hidden earlier around the ring spring into action. The hissing of smoke rises above the sound of the gasping crowd. Sprinting through artificial fog illuminated by the fireworks is a massive man wearing tight slacks, a pocket t-shirt, and a hat. All of it is white. The only color on him is the periwinkle blue wrestler's mask concealing his face. If ever there were a living square, it is Cain Swap. The little cow's face lovingly embroidered on his hat and chest pocket by the devoted Mama Swap smiles down on any foe to face the eldest of the Swap Boys. Stopping to stand next to the Twister, Cain's equally massive triangle of a brother, the Milk Man smiles widely and motions for to crowd to Make Some Noise!

Player Name: JustSomeGuy

Character Name: The Milk Man (Cain Swap)

Name of Teammate: The Twister (Henry Swap aka Yoshimi)

Previous life: Mama Swap always tried to keep the neighborhood kids well-fed and healthy. The Swap boys were both. Whoever their Pa was, he must've been a giant because Cain and Henry were a clear foot taller than any of the other kids. Always a bulky fellow, he knew his appetite hurt the family's pantry so Cain took it on himself to leave home early. He got himself a job working at the nearest dairy. He'd spend his nights sleeping in the fields among the cattle and the farm dogs. Waking up before dawn, he'd lead the cows to the milkers and wrangle the bulls to their eatin' pens. Then, he'd bring jars of milk in little crates to town and pass it out to the families that paid a stipend to the Dairy. It was honest work right up until his boss was made to be missing and those boys tried to kill him.

Fighting style: Even before the incident, Cain Swap was a tough slab of beef. While he may lack offensive ability, he more than makes up for it with resilience. He's frustratingly difficult to move in the ring. After Sturm Jansen's boys broke his bones and threw him in the milk vats to drown, his ability to feel has been all but destroyed. It can be inconvenient. He often doesn't know if he's holding something too hot, or if he's cut himself on an errant piece of barbwire. There are upsides, though. He might not even notice a chair breaking over him or a blow from a lead pipe. The metal parts that the doctors used to put his bones back together make his muscles cramp in bad weather and add even more to his weight. He's up to a quarter of a ton, now. It's gonna take something special to break those bones the next time around.

Costume: Momma Swap sewed Cain a costume that was made to look like the Milk Men from the pictures books in her Old Days chest. She stitched a sweet smiling cow's face on his hat and shirt and made sure that the material would stretch and conform to his body to be harder to grab. His mask was made from an old curtain so that he'd be able to take a piece of home with him everywhere. One day, he'd like to reinforce his shiny black boots with some heavy steel soles for better stompin'.

Money: The Milk Man had a good life at the Masterson farm. He didn't need much. He had all the milk he could drink, meat every day, and Old Miss Masterson even let him pet the dogs! He liked sleeping under the stars curled up with the big mastiffs. It felt natural. After li'l Henry went and did what he did, that dastardly Sturm Jansen went revenging where he could. He never did get to Mama Swap, but he sure did take out his anger on Cain. Those boys came through and ruined everything. If it weren't for little Timmy Masterson, Cain would likely still be floating in that milk vat. When the doctors were done puttin' the behemoth back together, he came back to fetch Timmy and take him to Mama's house. Mama Swap would make sure the boy was treated right, and Cain made sure to scavenge anything worth saving from the wreaked homestead. That which wouldn't make a proper inheritance was sold at 'The Swap Meat' to make sure that the newly extended Swap family would keep afloat.

Nemesis: Sturm Jansen was a real piece of work, but his buckaroo Clay Steel was the real brute. Clay, a savage bronc peeler, broke in new colts and 'reminded' the other livestock to behave with a cruel hand. He enjoyed it, too. That buckaroo was the head 'boy' Sturm sent when he needed to send a message with plausible deniability. Late one night, not too long ago, Clay and Jansen's other bully boys came around the old Masterson Dairy on a tear. Apparently, the youngest Swap boy had offended their boss and tried to rustle the livestock from the Jansen Ranch.

Cain Swap didn't know how many farmhands it would take to overpower him, but he found out how many they were going to use. As the team worked together to drag his massive frame to the milk tanks, Clay and the boys laughed about the dark work they had done that night. That dark-eyed and sunburnt bronc peeler thought his job was done, and he was proper upset when he heard that Cain survived. Clay swore that he would find Cain one day and finish what he started. One of them won't be getting up the next time they cross paths, that's for sure.

APPLICATION TEMPLATE
right-aligned image

Player Name: Yoshimi

Character Name: The Twister (Henry Swap)

Name of Teammate: The Milkman (Cain Swap)

Previous life: Henry liked to dream that he was a tornado. They used to make fun of him for spinning. He could twirl with his arms sticking straight out for 30 minutes or more with his eyes closed, imagining himself grinding across the landscape, the air full of flying buildings, cars, and cows. Lots of cows. He never showed any signs of dizziness at all. Momma Swap always affectionately reassured little Henry that he was far smarter than a brick. Momma was his only real friend, but once he passed 13 years old and 6'7" tall, the teasing just sort of went away. Not that he was dangerous. He had seen a picture of a clown once, in a tattered picture book his Momma kept in her Old Days chest. The colorful man had been making some children laugh. Henry wanted to grow up to be a clown, so he could make children laugh. But there weren't any jobs of that sort these days. Then Momma Swap took him to watch the luchadors and he saw a new way to make people happy that he had the skills for. So he kissed Momma goodbye, and left his job holding down the horses and cows so the animal doctor could work on them. It was time to go to the Big City.

Fighting style: Henry loves to spin, and although neither his Momma or the nurses could explain it, he is not capable of getting dizzy. In the ring, he is alway in motion, grabbing opponents by the arm and whipping them around and around before launching them into the ropes, or flying through the air in twirling kick and punch maneuvers.

Costume: Momma Swap sewed Henry a costume that makes him feel like a tornado. It is all in stormcloud black, including the mask, boots and short unitard. The belly sports a flying cow insignia below his bared chest. He wishes he had a thin, gray cape that would whirl around him like a tornado when he spins. He doesn't wish it was diaphanous, but only because those kinds of words only happen to other people. Some forked lightning over his eye-holes would be really nice, too.

Money: Henry was a veterinarian's assistant back home, although he would never put it that way. He also did contract work in animal control. For example, if a bull escaped its pen, he would drag it back inside. In the city, large animals were hard to come by, so instead he worked the saloons, dragging people out of them as needed.

His Momma managed his money for him and used most of it to take care of him, so now he needs a partner he can trust to do the same.

Nemesis: Doc Maggie used to get a real sharp crinkle between her brows whenever animals were brought in from Sturm Jansen's ranch. Even Henry could see that they were not well fed and had lots of scrapes and bruises. She said he shouldn't be allowed to own animals. That was all Henry needed to hear.

Unfortunately, once they recovered consciousness, several eyewitnesses were able to describe in great detail the young man who carried the livestock out through the demolished fence. Henry was brought before the sheriff, with the powerful and powerfully-built Sturm present and demanding jailtime and a public whipping. With economic interests throughout the community, including sponsorship of wrestlers in the local bouts, the rancher got what he wanted. Henry overwhelmed his captors and nearly escaped from the proceedings, but Sturm himself managed to subdue him. The normally peaceful Henry still dreams of seeing the bad man picked up by a tornado and thrown somewhere far away.

Those who engage with me in conversation, and are not used to me, have their senses dulled by my slow-witted way of talking, which can cause them to temporarily forget what they were thinking about. They will then have to stand around trying to gather their senses for some time after.I Feel Stupid and Contagious
With a moment's concentration, Henry can determine what direction he is facing. No matter the landscape, he is able to find his way to where he wants to go.I Reckon
