Full Name: David Whittemore
Birthday: March 27, 1992
Body Type: average male build, I guess.
Occupation: Bassist for Bad Spider, wannabe-philosopher, college student. No money-making job.
Ethnicity/Species: Human, Scots-Irish/German/Slavic. Totem animal-Grizzly bear.
Faith: mix of neo-buddhism, therianism, existentialism, flowery half-ass tao, string theory, determinism, nudist colonies, confused socialism, 9th amendment rights, ghosts, reiki/chakra power, and whatever he imagines when he’s tripping.
Music: I Read the Giver, Interpol, Tool, Of Montreal, Say Anything (even the new album he says he hates), Nine Inch Nails, Modest Mouse, The Dead Science, Nirvana, -some- Rasputina, The Beatles, Arcade Fire, The New Pornographers, Oasis, Radiohead, Blind Melon, Mother Mother, -some- AFI, The Flaming Lips, The Who, Smahsing Pumpkins, Crosby Stills Nash (and Young), Franz Ferdinand, Alice in Chains, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, The Pixies, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Skinny Puppy, Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead, Adam and the Ants, Syd Barrett, The Smiths, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Depeche Mode, Mozart, Soundgarden, -some- MSI, The Servant, Violent Femmes, The Blood Brothers, Gorillaz, The Dresden Dolls kinda, and just enough Marilyn Manson for Dan to still like him. TOTAL MUSIC SNOB. Classic rock, grunge, industrial NOT electronica, psychedelic, folk, indie, some metal, alternative. some new wave, classical, blues, jazz. No pop. Ever. Or country or rap or--
Fashion: What fashion? He doesn’t care how he looks and dresses for comfort—baggy shirts, flannels, hoodies and jackets, jeans, sneakers, barefoot, and sandals. Band tees usually. Muted “stoner”/autumn colors. Will wear Rastafarian stripes—like, the ONLY bright stuff he owns. Wears those big baggy striped muted hoodies….can’t describe ‘em too well but they remind me of afghan quilts….And boxers, never briefs.
Personality: Appears (and often is) easygoing when not being all bummed out and insecure-ish. :/ Loves a juicy piece of gossip. Secretly wonders if he’s gay. Loves making fun of Dan (is usually nice when he teases but he doesn’t drop stuff soon enough). Dave however did blow a fuse after Dan was crushing hardcore on Jack, their guitarist, although Dan’s in a straight relationship and had no intention to end it. So yeah, a bit of a homophobe. Goal in life: to get married and have children, and support himself from his music and philosophical studies. Plays bass in Bad Spider, is Dan’s best friend. Has a huge drug problem—too much special K, burned out on it--and smokes chronically; often unresponsive or slow. Is book-smart but not people-smart, is naïve, and is often jealous of Dan’s position in the band as frontman. Is super lazy and just freeloads off his parents for money; kinda spoiled. Has a huge interest in new age philosophy and spirituality, makes fun of furry shit, and hates boppy poppy electronic and pop music (unless he likes it in which case he’s hypocritical but no one can question him). Is often a hypocrite. :/ Used to see girls for sex when he was single, now he’s in a so-far celibate relationship. Wants to move back to his beloved hometown of Eugene, Oregon, but wants to stay in the band, too. Is going to college for a degree in philosophy. Has little real world experience and often has little motivation to get any. Generous, kind, likes giving gifts. Dave is the kind of guy you’d like to hug I guess. He’s squishy.
Drugs: Pot constantly, special K (burned out on it like woah), alcohol (drinks less often but in many ways is worse than Dan), psilocybin. Is sober about 40% of the time.
Likes: most seafood, playing music, his old English sheepdog Cassie, sleeping, waking up at 5 in the morning even though he sleeps later, giving people presents, porno magazines, tripping, musing about the universe, grunge music, munchies foods (cheese puffs are his favorite), vegetables, curries, mineral water, lazing, painting (he kinda sucks but does it anyway), writing, philosophy, communism and socialism (he has a confused idea of what he wants when it comes to this stuff), harassing Dan, children, Oregon.
Dislikes: Conservatives (no matter what), The Birthday Massacre, Lady GaGa, almost all Riot Grrrl music (all three are his bitter enemies), how much juice his parents buy (a lot of the fridge is juice containers), neon colors, pink and purple, super gay shit, oysters (bad experience with a rotten one), cilantro, overly sugary stuff, energy drinks, most sodas, that Dan’s the frontman instead of him, tight pants/skinny jeans, tobacco, shaving, showering, little dogs, being harassed by Dan, working, material possessions (he is SUCH a wannabe of…well…everything), capitalism (he just says this because he’s lazy and doesn’t want a job), cooking, anything requiring any effort.
Movies: Donnie Darko, K-Pax, Yellow Submarine, The Wall, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, A Beautiful Mind, From Hell, North by Northwest, Be Kind Rewind, LOTR.
Fuzzy little bear tail!
Fluffy face, thick muzzle, high forehead.
Lots of fur down the chest in a ruff.
Thick beard-fur-stuff under his muzzle.
PAWPADS. Dark brown.
Little bit of a beer belly fat deposit going on.
Thin lips, long face.
Eyes are often reddish from drugs.
Looks sleepy a lot of the time.
Scruffy halfass beard-thing.

Glam rock, new (new) wave, glitter punk, indie, 80’s, alternative.
Fashion: Simple. No designs or words on shirts, unless a band tee. Only owns two dresses, one of which is black, elegant, practical and modest—Christmas gift from Dan—other is a practical retro deal. Never wears skirts, rarely accessorizes beyond a few hemp/friendship bracelets and her headbands (usually they are bright and thick), not obsessed with shoes—dark or patterned vans or some other kind of slip on, but can be sandals, boots, etc sometimes. Usually dark or blue jeans, usually skinnies. Tops are either fitted band tees or solid or patterned (usually big stripes) wifebeaters. Hoodies, vests…kinda men’s/androgynous super toned down scene/indie fashion. She doesn’t buy things with holes in them, they just happen that way—she’s rowdy. However, being an ex-scenekid and living with Dan means sometimes she looks more colorful than described above. Favorite color is blue, mostly wears it with grayscale and occasional bursts of color or glitter. Fond of bold cat-eye makeup. Underwear and PJ’s are never skimpy, always cute, colorful and patterned. Feel free to draw her in undies, ahaha.
Personality: Strong-willed, but also easygoing, humorous, intelligent, intuitive. Emma is sometimes spontaneous but mostly a good planner and very prudent spender/saver. You could NEVER call her lazy. She has a strong sex drive and makes fun of her own skinny-fetish a great deal. Ribs are her favorite part of the body. Definitely not “girly” -feminine. Musically minded, art appreciator but can’t draw/carve/sculpt at all. Thoughtful, generous, and while competitive it’s not in foul spirit. She acts as a sort of mother figure to Dan. TERRIFIED of most bugs. Plays keyboard and does vocals for Bad Spider, also semi-manager for them. Liam is Emma’s parallel personality; if he wasn’t mentally ill they’d be near-identical.
Drugs: Null, just a puff of pot or sip of wine here and there. She wishes Dan was more cautious.
