Life Goal: Nothing he could call a 'life goal'. Something he can make a living at, maybe. It's been long since he wanted to be a runner.

Does Character Think of Self as Attractive: Kip knows he's attractive, but doesn't like to show it off. He disdains the metrosexual trend, and is proud of being a rough guy.
Healthy Habits: Kip gets up at 6 in the morning and goes for a 5-mile run every day. He has trouble sleeping, and is always up by six anyway.
Unhealthy Habits: As soon as his shift at the warehouse ends, he picks up a six-pack and no one hears from him until the next day.
Favorite Movie: Terminator. Yeah, Kip hasn't watched a recent movie in a long while.
Vices: Smoking, drinking, and too much at that.
Tattoo(s)/ Piercing(s): A tattoo on his left shoulder of a gold medal. He attended SUNY for a year on a full scholarship, where he ran competitively.
