Curtis Joe Williams
PI at Courtesy Investigations
Tough, but small , CJ's only five foot two, but is largely lean muscle, broad shoulders, heavy arms and a square jaw. He is stocky but fit, strong and fierce and physical in a way that more than makes up for his size. The only thing that sets him back again is the pronounced limp on his right side.
At first meeting, he comes off unapproachable and harsh. His jaw tends to be tight, his eyebrows heavy and knitted, his mouth pressed into a tight line. His eyes are a deep, dark blue, deep set behind a nose that was once long and straight but, at some point, someone hit enough to put a flat spot in the bridge. Under the reddish line of his close-cropped beard, an old scar traces the left side of his face. His hair is dark red, curly when allowed to grow past its usual short crop around his face.
CJ is definitely not a keen dresser. His idea of formal wear is a blazer thrown on over khaki slacks. His idea of casual wear is battered jeans, a flannel shirt, and old, worn boots.
His voice has a very slight twang , an accent that has mostly been chased away, only a hint lingering.
It's hard to tell if CJ's resting bitch face is just a facade or if it goes deep to the bone. It's possible he actually just doesn't much like other people , which makes sense, in his line of work. As a PI, he sees a lot of people at their worst, often catching them in a lie or with their hand in the pot, so to speak. The result is that he's guarded, quiet and serious, ready for something to come at him. He's not warm, or friendly; his tolerance for stupidity or fucking around is very low. Largely, he wants to be left alone with his dog and his old car and his property. He takes very, very poorly to liars. He says the truth, even when it's unpleasant.
As a rule, he comes off as a bit of a hick, and fundamentally normal. Every now and then, he has a deep set kind of loneliness, something hollow and hungry. He puts it to rest with copious amount of alcohol. One night stands. Long camping trips. Occasional risky behavior.
