NAME( AND YOU ARE? )
Pickman, Richard Upton
Art History Major
Loft in Orne's Gangway
Richard is every bit of the word awkward. Sporting a tall, gaunt, thin frame. His dark eyes are cold and distant, often bearing a bit of an air of sadness or remorse. His ears bearing slight pointed tips more than most. As human as he looks, people cant help but feel there is something not quite right about this kid.
Often called a ghoul, derogatorily to refer to a person who delights in the macabre. The macabre is something that Richard knows about more than one person should or ever dream to. Though he tends to carry himself in a stoic mood, his true nature is portrayed through his art. Gothic and gore filled images painted with thorough, painstaking, and almost scientific realistic detail. One would call it brooding, and pain filled. His forte, faces.
He tends to shy away from others, not that he is shy, just prefers the company of paper and pencil more than a human. Pickman now the world differently, more or less for what it is. That he is not meant to be but must remain among them. Though such thoughts make him perfectly qualified for an asylum cell to his own. A displaced feeling he has had since childhood. Though now he knows why, in fact he has a locked box under his bed full of photographs to remind him of such.
Though Changelings by nature are ill-tempered.

Various creatures with more hideous appearance then his own
Ever since Richard was a child in Salem, he felt nothing short but out of place. Even though he'd always been inclined in the skills of art, seemingly gifted. Growing up, his family was relativity poor in the aspect of being able to afford things other then what was needed to get by. Richard had few toys other then a bear that he pulled along where ever he went like most young children did. His father kept the child out of trouble or mischief by sitting him down on the floor with scraps of paper and a pencil. Often telling his son to use his imagination an put what he thought on paper. Though when he started to draw, the macabre became his style.
Always picked last for the school yard games and such until one day he learned to accept it. Even with his family, he left the same feeling. This foreboding feeling that something wasn't quite right. It was him, He was the issue. Changelings, are the offspring of a creatures that has been secretly left in the place of a human child.
In Richard's case a ghoul, Who often replaced the child out of malice or for servitude. It was not until Richard gained access to the loft building on Orne's Gangway. The building cellar lead access to the sub terrain set of caverns of tunnels running across the miskatonic area. The cavernous systems however are home to creatures that Richard was more than happy to call family. In fact they made very good models for the up and coming artists already disturbing art.
It was not until he discovered the cavern system beneath the city streets of Boston, these creatures of horror lived and thrived. Some are even known by those that live in the world above. Nothing but stories though, He had thought to scare children. No, what he stumbled upon that night in the tunnel by the dim light of the gas lamp changed his out look on life for ever. Creatures of humanoid likeness, feasting on flesh. Dead flesh. They did not run from him, nor try to attack. Just merely approached him like a friend, bearing a slight resemblance to his own.
