Ulysses Arngrim

History

Be free of an office desk, they said. Travel the world! Protect it against threats not normally known to man! Sure, it sounded great on the pamphlet but naturally one should be hesitant to take things at face value. Unfortunately when one finds themselves desperate to get out of the monotony of one job then they're champing at the bit to get into something that looks as an offer like that does in print.

Mind, it was but the first step that has since proven to lead down a steep and ever descending slope in which there'd be no turning back for one Ulysses Arngrim. Still feeling that he's been somewhat tricked into a glorified office job in which he still wears a suit and still sits behind a desk most of the time, he's had plenty of time to reconsider his position and if he would have made a different decision had he ever the chance.

The truth of the matter is that the job keeps him on his toes, and no matter the slump he may miraculously find himself in, he knows that there's always something around the corner just waiting to happen. With the recent political stir and the new law in place, that's become more a given these days.

Recent Events

Personality

A self-proclaimed man of little ambition, Ulysses was in his younger years very much the underachiever, satisified in scooting by with the bare minimum of output per his own efforts. Things have changed, he's changed, and although he can't quite remember the exact moment that his outlook shifted, he's come to realize that if he's able to do more then why wasn't he? And then he took a look at the world around him and was reminded as to why he didn't care to stand out in the first place.

As a rule of thumb Ulysses doesn't like to draw attention. He's content with being in the background, and he knows his skills are best suited for support. More often than not he's inclined to complain, especially when he feels under-appreciated, and depending on his mood and the situation he'll have a running commentary, often very dry and flavored with sarcasm. Despite his behavior he always tries to come through and will pull his own weight no matter how bad an idea or task is that he's given, granted that the outcome is justified. There won't be a moment where he'll let someone forget just how he feels about it, of course.

Ulysses likes to think himself realistic about things despite whatever he finds himself dealing with, finding that having an anchor point for his sanity does wonders when all the world around him looks on the verge of collapsing. Yet, for all that he might come off as, he does like to enjoy himself and will find ways to keep himself entertained when possible, another coping mechanism.

He may not be street-smart, but he can be clever. It's a very particular perspective that he can best apply his mind to, and for instances such as problem solving, he's not afraid to cut corners although it takes some prodding or a few hints to remind him he can possibly work outside of the box. In a way that's always been his problem, in that he always sets himself inside given parameters until he stumbles across a figurative window or door. Then it's just a matter of not getting intimidated after that next step.
