Name: Lightning-Fingers McGee

Intimacies: Music, Hides-Under-Fridges (lunar mate)
Anima Banner:This wacky gold and silver fractal Mandelbrot thing
(unspent / total)
Lightning-Fingers McGee was born, raised, and lived on the edge between the shitty part and the decent part of the shitty part of Nexus. He discovered he was good with his hands at a young age, etc etc, became a smith's apprentice and joined a gang yadda yadda, now makes a living picking pockets and making musical instruments.
The only problem in his life besides the inconsistent income and the poor living conditions was there was one big cockroach living in his little house. I mean, this roach was so big it could fight off a small cat. McGee did everything in his power to kill it, from poisons to knives to stomping to actually shooting it with a flamepiece, but nothing worked.
At the end of a shitty day of dealing with shitty customers, McGee was slicing some cheese for a ham sandwich when he saw That Damn Roach crawl across his kitchen floor. Well, he was literally on his last nerve, and McGee cut a small corner off his cheese and flicked it on the floor for the cockroach. He then enjoyed his sandwich and washed it down with some hard liquor before getting back to work on his pet project, a brass flute he made himself. It hadn't occurred to him that he might never finish it when he found himself embossing designs across every inch of it, and he could swear the room was lighting up with a golden glow, but that wasn't important. It was probably the dawn creeping up on him.
A week went by, he'd work on the flute every now and then when he had some free time. He kept seeing That Roach more and more, especially around lunchtime when he was feeling the least spiteful, so he'd cut it a small slice of cheese. He felt like they were roommates, he'd earn the money and The Roach would keep the other pests out (he actually saw it bite another roach in half). And then the day came.
The flute was done! McGee's masterpiece was complete! He walked out onto his front stoop, golden light following his every step and played the most beautiful music or anyone withing a block had ever heard, golden fractal light flowing from him as he played. Not even the assholes that lived upstairs complained despite it being some hour of the morning that shouldn't exist. As he played, there was a girl watching him, absolutely awestruck. He finished the song, his fractal anima still blazing, and he heard a booming voice in his head, "WELL? ARE YOU GOING TO INVITE HER IN OR WHAT?"
McGee did indeed invite her in, one thing led to another, fade to black, etc. The next morning she said the last thing McGee expected: "I... wanted to thank you for all the cheese."
