Sandman- 6'3", paleskinned, red-haired, green-eyed, lithe
caucasian elven male.

Sandman usually wears a rather voluminous greatcoat that is sometimes
more like a robe than a coat. He prefers darker shades. Often if
he wears colors other than black they will be the darkest shade
available. Other than his hallmark greatcoat he always wears a
pendent that noone can really remember well afterwards.

Sandman is a marvelous enigma of the Sprawl. He is not a real
shadowrunner, although he has gone on many shadowruns. He seems
to have no real goals or means that anyone can discern, and yet . . .
He will show up in time to give a mysterious piece of advice that
always turns out to be useful. He will know much, but leave people
as if he knows more than they can imagine. His elegant manners
can give way very quickly to deadly intensity. His performs tricks
of amazing sleight-of-hand and speaks in mysterious tones. A
person gets tthe feeling of being both with a jester and an
executioner when they are around Sandman. He is seen in company
both high and low. Although he can be dramatic, he can also
move as a whisper through darkness. Surely he is magical, and
yet noone can assense him. Wisecracking, acerbic tongued most times
he can be profound and poetical on occasion. He seems to have no
friends, but favorites and devotees.
