Name: Griffin Reim
Age: 24
Gender: Male
Appearance: Griffin stands at a respectable 6'2", weighing in at a hefty 210 pounds of solid muscle. He prefers to keep his hair buzzed and his chin shaved, though to his despair, both grow so rapidly that it's usually all he can do just to keep the stubble under control. His face is strong-jawed and friendly, with a hint of dimples around his cheeks and the beginnings of laugh lines around chocolate-brown eyes. His outfit largely depends on whether he's on-call or not. If so, then he's dressed in full firefighter's regalia, thick fireproof turnout coating him head to toe and a solid fireman's hat capping the ensemble off, plus or minus standard tools of the job. When off-duty, he's partial to form-fitting raglan shirts and whatever bottoms seem convenient for the season; shorts in summer, long pants in winter. His PET hangs on a fireproof belt holster that never leaves his side. While it isn't immediately obvious with clothes on, Griffin's left hand, shoulder, and upper back are a shiny mass of burn scars; they aren't debilitating and he is allowed to serve despite them, but the afflicted areas can still ache on bad days.

Personality: It has been said by many that Griffin somewhat resembles an overgrown puppy in personality; as friendly and loyal as he is, this is hard to deny. He's very outgoing and social, and rarely has a bad word to say against anyone. He's also fairly excitable, and prone to going off on tangents when riled up; as such, he relies a little on ScorchMan's comparatively level demeanour to reel him back at times. Griffin has a strong sense of loyalty and duty, which serves him well in the Kotobuki Fire Brigade, in making friends, and in the orphanage he volunteers at in his off-times. Of course, even he has his serious moments, usually coinciding with his duty and the reality he's reminded of every time he catches a glimpse of his scars. True to form, however, he never lets the blue moods get him down, and presents himself firmly as a beacon of positivity.

PET Modifications: Due to the nature of Griffin's job, his PET is by necessity completely fireproof, resplendent in a dark grey cover that can fully shield the delicate hardware from the intense heat of a house-fire. As he uses it for work as well, the PET is equipped with an extremely fine-tuned thermal scanner, capable of pinpointing human activity within a blaze so Griffin knows exactly where to work during an in-house rescue op. ScorchMan usually operates the scanner in these instances, relaying the information to Griffin as they go.
