johnny_truant: (exploring)
This post is a detailed list of the first observations anyone might make upon meeting Johnny which aren't evident in his icons, for the reference of other players.


-he's Japanese in appearance but he has no trace of foreign accent, he's American through and through
-very light southern California accent
-he's quite short and small for a man, 5'6 and very slight. here he is next to some very tall folks
-he has small dainty hands
-his hair varies a lot in his icons but generally it looks like this

He has a buttload of scars. The most noteworthy ones which are frequently noticed in the book are his broken front incizor, and the burn scars that cover the insides of both forearms from wrist to elbow.

All scars are listed and detailed under the cut due to spoilers for House of Leaves as well as a major trigger warning for mentions of violence and child abuse.

[Out Of Character]
Backtagging: Go for it.
Threadhopping: Probably fine.
Fourthwalling: Sure. He'd be really, really unamused.
Canon Puncture: If your character is likely to actually know such an obscure book, then go for it, and Johnny will have a breakdown, and it'll be great!!
Offensive Subjects: Johnny is a very mentally ill character, and while I aim to be flippant about a lot of this much of the time (I really don't want to throw a Pathos Parade), having some personal experience with (admittedly much less severe) mental illness, I'm also going to endeavor to be as sensitive to the realities of that as possible. I am going to be very disciplined about content warnings, but please don't hesitate to give me a gentle tap if I go a bridge too far.
