What is this Character needed for (include any existing or upcoming plots): Wanted to help grow the population in LA. Owner of the Shadow is @Gabriele Salvatierra whom is active. Gabriele often goes to NY so there is opportunity for the character to travel with him and interact in NY threads as well.
Ethan was one of those kids that was only good at one thing growing up. He was just good at beating the crap out of people. That's what drove him to football and later the New York Jets for a few years before flaming out. He fled to the west coast to outrun his failures only to get into drugs and other depravities in LA that left him a bum, a talented bum, but a bum nonetheless. That was until the Nevus event. Strange how sobering being altered and the apocalypse can be. Wanting to straighten his life out, he looked for work that used what he did best, beat the crap out of people.
Bouncing in some sleazy places, he had ambitions to work somewhere upscale, but one "fancy" place turned out to be more of a meat market. He nearly got killed one night trying to bounce a rogue vampire, that is until the owner of Shadow interfered. Impressed that the guy was still standing, he was offered a position under Jacob Minor at Shadow. He was moving up in the world.
Now loyal to Shadow, its owner and its staff, he has found a real niche for himself. The opportunity to enjoy the finer life while doing what he does best. He is just starting to be trusted as a low rank in the Sheut Nation. An information gatherer.
Shifter - has the ability to turn into a massive Kodiak bear with its strength. At nearly 1300 pounds it is difficult for anyone to stand against him physically.
Fear Enducing Roar - in his bear form it can be downright paralyzing. In his human form the roar can send people fleeing in terror.
