CHARACTER

"A middle aged man. Rather unkempt and bedraggled. Dressed in a kagool, threadbare trousers and scuffed, combat style, boots. Hints that he may have had a past in the military.
 
At first he appears demoralised and defeated but as the story progresses his survival skills find him ever more optimistic and even content by the end."
