The Continental Op
Captain Mal Reynolds
Average height, weight, brown hair and with his only really striking feature being hazel eyes, Dash really don't stand out. A fan of t-shirts, jeans and black leather jackets he is one Warlock who never really feels a desire to dress to impress.
Possesses Fame 1 for his relationship with Canadian actress Ava Stewart.
Shadows in the area seem to fill out and take form in shapes reflecting inner natures or mental state. Any caster of a shadow who moves has their movements reflected in their shadow a second too slow, as if the Shadow is dragging in Time slightly.
Revenge. Love. A decent goalie for the Guardian pick up hockey team.
Oh you mean ties ...
- He's cursed. Seriously anyone who was been close to him for over a couple of years is probably dead. Lestrade. Pariel. Exodus. Long term friendship with Dash has a mortality rate hovering in the mid-70s.
- Apparently he once dumped a girl for cheating on him with an NHL player. He wasn't mad that she was sleeping with someone else just that it was an Ottawa Senator.
- Has a nickname for anyone who he really likes and respects.
- His sense of humour has gotten darker and the snark seems to have more of an edge to it.
- He once engaged a Sclestus in a gun battle while falling out of a crashing airplane at 10,000 feet.
- He is currently dating a movie star.
"I trust this guy to watch my back. He keeps me safe. So when he says something is probably a bad idea, I like to think I at least think about not doing that thing" - Payette
"Dash is the kind of guy who can always offer a rational voice in a heated conversation. He's also the guy who will show up with you to a fight along with a bunch of people he doesn't trust...either to prove himself right, or put his concerns to rest. Those are two of his many traits I've always been fond of." Pariel
