Name: Wesley Thomas Leer III
Son of Wesley Thomas Leer II, retired war vet, and Mari Leigh Leer, Highschool English Teacher; Wes Leer III grew up with very contrasted parenting techniques. He respects and loves both of his parents, though. He had a happy childhood with them and his two younger brothers (Samuel  and Greg Leer ).Flaws/Personality traits:
Wes grew up as a very typical human being, and what most would refer to as a "Jock". He was an Athlete in Highschool through and through, having played Basketball, Football, Baseball and Track. He was Prom King. He was MVP for several seasons. He got "Biggest Flirt" in his Senior Yearbook. After highschool, Wes rode in on the coattails of a full football scholarship to the University of Southern California. He picked up a major in business.
His future in sports was exceptionally bright until one night as he walked back to his apartment, he was hit by a drunk driver, who fled the scene. Wes was not fatally injured, but suffered a broken hip. It healed but will never be fit enough to play serious sports again; his spot on the Trojans' team was lost.
Wes spent a year away from school, immersed in depression. He had no other plans for himself, he could not figure out what to do now. His business major had only been something to keep him busy while he focused on athletics. It was not his passion.
It was a year later that Wes found music, and found a passion in it that he had not even found in his football career. Fed up with his brooding, however, Wes finally made the decision to enlist in the Army. He wouldn't have normally been allowed to enlist, but he made sure to forget telling them about his hip.
He's seen and learned a lot of things while he's been in the service, and considers it to be one of the best experiences of his life.
At 26 Wes has finally returned home, looking to adapt to civilian life once again. While he doesn't regret his days in the service, he certainly recognizes that he's missed out on a lot.
These days, Wes plays at local clubs and bars, scraping up some side-money while doing something he loves. While in the Army he was able to finish his degree in business, but still has not found a job.
Wes has a decent sense of humor, sometimes perverted. He loves to watch the game on Sunday and knock back a few beers with friends. He's professional at his day job and can transform into a totally different person by nightfall, becoming more lax and carefree.Physical description:
Wes is well-disciplined, mature and self-reliant, but there is still a glimmer of the obnoxious highschooler he used to be within him. He sometimes can't help having condescending thoughts towards those less well-off than himself, or being hateful of those who are moreso. Wes takes care of his outward appearance, another trait carried over from being the popular guy in school.
Wes can handle himself well in just about any situation, something he learned while in the service. Whimpering and crying are things that fools do, and they will get you killed. Wes does not engage in either activity. You could shoot him in the knees and he would still fight back the tears with all his might.
As far as intelligence goes, Wes is very street-smart but not very book-smart. If you give him a tent and a knife he'll be able to keep himself alive for weeks, but hand him a math test and he won't know what to do.
Wes carries an air of confidence about him that attracts others to him. If he weren't confident, nobody would listen to his music. If he weren't confident, the pain he feels in his hip would show. He wouldn't be able to approach people or perform in front of them without stuttering and blustering.
Wes has gone from spoiled football jock, to stone-faced soldier, to a fine mixture of the two. Life is all bout lessons, and Wes has learned enough of them to write a novel.
Wes is tall, lean and handsome. He' got short, dark hair and bold brown eyes. His face is longer than it is wide and he doesn't allow his beard to grow longer than 5 o'clock shadow.Aspirations:
While he is quite strong, he's not bulky like one would think. His muscle is more of a track runner's, as in football he was the receiver. He can outrun almost anyone and he can surely lift you above his head.
Wes' hip ruined his life for awhile and still affects him today. It doesn't hinder his day-to-day life but if too much pressure is applied, the pain comes back. If he didn't have so much pride, he might even have a limp. However, trying to disguise his disability from the Military trained him to ignore the pains. He cannot deny that it's his weak spot, though.
Wes has long-fingered hands that find their way quite easily across a row of piano keys or a set of guitar strings.
