1.  Synopsis

Denver Long, or Denny, is one of the many illegitimate children of Phoenix Whitesage.

2.  Appearance


Short, lean, and wiry, Denny is a handsome man, and he knows it. He has a head of full, dark, and wavy hair cropped short in the back and slightly longer on top. Denver likes wearing clothing and has a couple outfits that he wears often. He is often seen in long, dark pants that go well with both his long-sleeved reddish button down and a blue shirt he is especially partial to. A ragged bandana is usually tied around his neck and Denny can usually be seen wearing several rings.

Denver looks, and acts, like a vagabond, though a strangely handsome and charming one. He is dirty more often than not, and his clothing hangs off him as though it were made for a slightly larger man. It is clear that he has lost weight during his travels, from the way his cheekbones jut out slightly. Acute observers may guess that he had more muscle at some point in the past. Fighters might recognize the scarring on his hands and arms as the scars gained by knife fighters.

Though he may seem to be relatively at ease at any given point in time, Denver is usually tense and nervous.

  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Fidgety
  • Posture and Body Language: Tense, though usually good at hiding it

3.  Personality


Denny wishes he were an agreeable sort of guy. The truth, though, is that Denny is selfish, controlling, and nervous. He has a strong desire to hide the parts of himself that he is most ashamed of. When he is in a good mood, he tends to be charming and friendly. In such times he is very good at hiding his darker habits. When caught in a poor mood, however, he closes himself off, becoming very stiff and silent. Attempts to breach these defenses are usually taken extremely poorly. Denver has a hot temper that, once inflamed, is extremely difficult to control. Fortunately, he is usually quick to cool off. Unfortunately, he often says and does things that he regrets while in the heat of the moment.

Denver is often very charming, especially if he wants to be. Though he can make mistakes, and he knows he hurts folks a lot, he truly does have a strong desire to please others. This is especially true for his friends, who may be surprised by Denny's ability to carry a conversation.

Others observing Denver are likely to note that, though he rarely expresses any emotions, he is often fidgety. The more anxious he is, the more he fidgets about. It isn't often that one finds Denver lounging about, and he prefers to constantly be on the move. He tends to see losing dominance as a loss of control, which he can take as a personal attack. It is for this reason, among others, that none of his romantic relationships have lasted for very long. He tends to build up an image of his partner that doesn't necessarily match reality, and the more time he spends with them the more aggravated he becomes when they do not match this image. Often, the longer he is in a relationship, the more poorly behaved he becomes.

  • Demeanor: Blasé, Nervous
  • Speech: Even
  • Sexuality: Bisexual, preference for women. Intimidated by people with strong personalities.
  • Outlook: Pessimistic
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral / Path of Autonomy
Considers himself above the law.
Is not concerned with those less fortunate.
Will break any contract when he feels like it.
Has few close friends and would never betray those he has, unless circumstances are dire
Is generally well liked by his community, but normally will not seek to improve the community.
Will support his nation when profitable to do so but will not act against his nation if profitable.

4.  History


Denny was born in Arizona to Annabelle Long, alongside Tallahassee, Wichita, Sioux, Reno, and Cheyenne, though he did not stay long. Shortly after shifting, Denny left his family and headed west, taking on odd jobs to scrape together a living. Somewhere along the way, he fell in with the wrong crowd. Before he knew it, he found himself in a dog-eat-dog sort of world where kindness was nothing but a liability. Fortunately, kindness didn't come naturally to him anyway.

As he grew into adulthood, Denny became known as a silver-tongued charmer and a two-faced cheat. Distrusted even within his gang, eventually it became clear to Denny that he would be better off alone. He struck off alone, leaving without saying goodbye, and returned to Arizona. After briefly visiting his mother, he wandered through Arizona and eventually landed at his father's ranch. It was there that Denver fell in love with animal husbandry, and he stayed with his father for almost six months before the familiar urge to wander began to get to him. He took off in the fall of 2022, heading east to meet his other family in 'Souls. It wasn't until he arrived in Palisade that he learned of his father's death. The news that his father died in a fire haunts him to this day, and Denver can't help but wonder whether he may have been able to help prevent his premature death had he been at the ranch that day.
