Bio/History: Layton had a pretty rough childhood, growing up in an environment where he was bullied and taken advantage of constantly. He worked out the pain and anger that he felt towards his bullies through martial arts but grew introverted and closed off from society. He found friends online and quickly became a social butterfly on the web, making him quite a nerdy martial artist.
He’d heard about the VR MMO Legend of the Blade after the beta had closed, but was very interested on making friends through the medium and getting a chance to demonstrate his abilities. Unfortunately it wasn’t what he expected as he wound up trapped in the game by terrorists.
In the early days of the MMO he bought a swallow as a pet and named him Locke. Locke has been Layton’s best friend through his time in this MMO, though he’s met quite a few friendly PC’s in his time there, and even leveled up his weapon crafting to help them out so he’s not just tanking damage all the time.
