Complications:
Identity - Richard Shaw goes to great lengths to keep his real life separate from his vigilante activities. The Everyman doesn't wear a costume, but will always be seen in whatever disguise he has deemed useful in his investigation.
Objectivist - Richard believes that man is a heroic being whose productive achievement is his noblest activity and that reason is the only absolute. He also tends to only believe the truths that he witnesses for himself, but is willing to investigate any theories presented (confusing some into believing that he is a conspiracy theorist).
Quirk - Richard REALLY dislikes when people call him Rick, or even worse, Rick Shaw. He is not a buggy pulled by an Asian man, he's a human being.
Vigilante - Shaw believes that those who commit misdeeds must be held accountable for their actions to the Old Testament sense of justice. This may cause him to be willing to take a life when the crime calls for it, but he also understands that there is a fine line between vigilante and criminal.

Known Background: Richard Shaw (who hates the derrivitive "Rick" due to being teased mercelessly as a child) , is the all-to-common creature known as "the struggling actor." While he is an extremely gifted actor, his appearance isn't what is considered "Hollywood" attractive and therefore has struggled finding his big break. He has gone to great lengths to hone his craft, including studying boxing, becoming an expert makeup artist and mastering the art of human observation, but no matter how much he expands his resume, he can't seem to get people to look beyond the physicalities. As such, his primary income is from temp work.

It was through his people watching that he started realizing that the evil among us is ourselves; that everyday people committing everyday crimes were just as harmful to society as the supervillains that heroes like Morning Star battled. As such, he began to use his skills of observation, disguise and investigation to learn the truth that others wanted to keep hidden and bring their sins to light.

The Everyman was created, designed and played by Jim Caswell.
