Clyde Teller was a simple young man, born in 1982. He grew up in Maine, with rather affluent and well-off parents. Well off enough that they were able to purchase him video games. This, as it turned out, was a terrible.. terrible mistake. Clyde quickly became obsessed with them, especially -fighting- games. While he was never a particularly in-shape child, or even teenager.. somewhere around the age of seventeen he decided he would become a fighter himself! He continued on with his general education and got himself a job at a local Funcoland. Shortly after graduation, he took a vacation to Thailand... and never came back home.
Clyde found himself a dojo, and with the money he had saved up, convinced its Master to let him stay and train there. It took him quite some time learn that it didn't work as it did in Video Games, but eventually the American became one of the better students of the Dojo. His massive, but somewhat pudgy form became far more refined by the training. In the interim ten years he has learned FOUR languages as a diversion from his training.
Eventually, as Calibration came to the Modern World, his life was not particularly turned upside down by the events that followed... for a while, at least. His master of his dojo actually seemed to become -better-, somehow... transcendent even. As the first year passed life continued pretty as-normal, but when the second Calibration occurred a strange visitor came to the dojo. He claimed to know something about the events happening in the outside world, and wished to speak directly to the master of his dojo. One morning, the stranger struck down his master during what was to be a friendly spar, and quickly disappeared... leaving Clyde brokenhearted and distraught.
Clyde swore that day he would find that strange fellow... and kill him in cold blood, as he had done to his master.
Clyde is 6'3" and has the "Fighting Bears on a mountain" type of physique. He isn't toned and muscled like a bodybuilder at all, in fact through his simple clothing one might even mistake him for being fat. He keeps his head shaved clean bald, wears unassuming and simple clothing, and has dark brown eyes. He has something of a Maine accent, but it is very slight due in part to his extensive study of other languages, and his long time away from home.
