Five is a male Caucasian well into his middle age. He's a strong looking man that frequently has dust on his calloused hands. His hands are almost always tinkering with something even if his focus is elsewhere.
His hair is grey at his temples.
He is frequently seen wearing black BDUs, favored for their durability and multitude of pockets. His BDU jacket is covered in patches that provide hints to his specialties and preferences. He has, on occasion, been mistaken for a member of the Arrow by non-Mystagoges; an identification he doesn't usually take well.
During the War, Five was known to be an alcoholic who ad long binges after deadly missions; But since the formation of the White Out cabal, his drinking has waned and stopped as far as outsiders can discern.
Eyes go black and darkness grows out of him.
- Five was an Arrow once upon a time.
- He is in AA, trying to recover...but failing miserably.
- And no, I don't mean Adamantine Arrow...you moron!
- Is helping out Mike by allowing him to work in his Jewelry story.
"Five is an ornery old Mysterium, but don't let that fool you. He knows his way around a gun and he knows how to arm his soldiers... I swear there is actual Military training in his background if not Arrow training." - Frost, Cabal Mate.
