Yellow tape around his body,
it's a fucking homicide
His face is on a T-Shirt
and his family traumatized
I didn't even mean to shoot 'em,
he just caught me by surprise
I reloaded my pistol, cocked it back, and shot him twice

Joining this group was a bit extra work then he liked, but he was accepted in the end after all.  Sure, if Paige hadn't been there it would've been a much more quicker and less aggressive joining.  But, he still needed to make ammends fully with the girl.  Vasco was in the casino, sitting at an old bar as he was making a knife, well really the handle currently.  Carving the wood out to fit in his hand well, he had the blade it was a rock he found while on his way to the Badlands.  It gave him something to do, and it was a pretty good conversation opener.

But, he sat there waiting for anyone to decide to come up and meet him.  After all, he is the new guy.

// this is shitty, but this serves as an open thread too have your beans meet Vasco

"speech" 'thought' text
tw: mentions alcohol, blood, profanity, themes of violence

Mike held no real like for Vasco, though he didn't feel partial towards Paige either. In his mind, they could both take the fast-lane to hell. God knew neither of them would make it to heaven even with a full confession and atonement. He scoffed to himself at the idea, and shook his head thoughtfully. He didn't go inside the Casino all that often, never seemed to be anything useful in there for him to do. He'd much rather be out in nature, or fighting, fighting was good.

The former soldier's frown deepened as his gaze drifted past Vasco, then back to him. He didn't trust the boy as far as he could shoot him out of a cannon. Hmm, didn't that sound interesting? No, he was trying to be slightly less... needlessly violent and volatile, not that it was easy, he much preferred his loaded threats and anger to this seemingly more passive side of him, if it was only just him holding his tongue.

He squinted at Vasco, watching his actions with little curiosity before he approached the boy, staying exactly out of the kid's knife circle. Not that he was scared of Vasco, had any reason to be worried about the kid trying to shank or shiv him. But because it was a "polite" thing to do, that way if the boy's hand slipped, he'd merely sever his own vein, and not Mikes. Purely selfish motives on Mike's part with no regard for Vasco's actual skill.

He wasn't underestimating the dear boy, Bonnie's Clyde certainly had some good attributes that he'd noticed, and was not someone to be trifled with, unless the danger was quite well known to them. But Mike still regarded his skills to be at least a match for Vasco's if not, possibly better. He wasn't being extremely cocky, just confident in his abilities and skills. He knew there would always be a better fighter, a better soldier, a better anything really, because that was how humanity worked. But he also knew that he was a damned good fighter.

"Nice toothpick you're whittling there." Michael greeted the boy with a cheerless smile, though no venom or anger in his voice. It was a pretty cheerful observation to part from Mike's lips, a lot less insulting than many other things he could have come up with. He rested a hand on a nearby chair back, and watched Vasco's movements casually.
Michael Ford is a 45 year old, man, he's stubbornly loyal to whatever cause he chooses, protective of his family and friends, he's a grunt in the Badlands. Michael has issues controlling his anger in most situations. He is a difficult opponent and well trained, feel free to power play nonviolent interactions though.

To say that Cat was a bit pissed at Paige was... definitely accurate. She'd been completely out of line, and Vasco had his own little fuck ups along the way, but he at least knew to follow orders. It was a trait that Cat was coming to value more and more with Mike and now Paige running around, so at least he had that going for him. "Going blind in your old age, Mike?" They asked, taking a seat at the bar and squinting at the object that Vasco was carving. They couldn't quite tell what it was, but it didn't look like a tooth pick.

APPEARANCE   dress me up and watch me die
⇥ Catalyst is 6'2" tall; they possess a lean and muscular body, one that has a variety of old scars adorning it. They have two piercings, one in their tongue and the other in the cartilage of their left ear. They typically dress in dark colors (favoring jackets with some sort of writing on the back), and their hair is black. They're not all dark, however, as they have pale blue eyes that peer out from beneath medium-sized eyebrows.

PERSONALITY   if it feels good, tastes good, it must be mine
⇥ Catalyst is ambitious, with the cunning and ruthlessness to reach their goals by any means necessary. They can be brutal when they feel it is needed, however when it's not they won't bother. They tend to be rather aloof and apathetic to most things and people, with some very rare exceptions. Provided those around them don't cross a few specific lines, they're content to leave them be, though they've been known to take an interest in some people, which seldom has a positive end for whoever their interest is in. They can be manipulative, and will often encourage people to make bad decisions. Those that stick by them will be rewarded, but those that do not will be cast out, as they've been outcast for their entire life and have learned to appreciate loyalty wherever they can find it. Even during the most stressful of situations, they usually keep a firm grip on their temper and keep their calm, though when they do snap and lose their temper, it is uncontrollable. They're remarkably observant, often able to deign much from subtle clues in what people say, how they say it and how they act.

⇥ Will leave things be in others ⇥ Will start & finish fights
⇥ No kill/capture/maim without permission
⇥ Peaceful powerplay allowed but they may react negatively
⇥ Dislikes almost any sort of touch unless they initiate or agree to it

I've been defeated I begged for what I needed
I suffered now I'm ready for war
