Colby Bullard is a young street urchin living in the Victorian England town of Bellkeep. His current body is that of a Villein, a knowledge-stealing entity which claimed his appearance and consciousness after his original self was killed. He is the main protagonist and playable character of Kleptomania.
Even for his age, Colby is small and thin due to a childhood of malnutrition. He is very lightly muscled, but it's only apparent because he doesn't have enough fat to cover it up. His skin is a very pale color, practically white as a bone, and lightly scarred by cuts of varying sizes on his forearms and face. His hair is as black as oil, and is nearly always covering the majority of his face. His eyes are gray and sharp, but tend to glow slightly red whenever he uses the Villein's abilities. Since they're the only clothes he owns, he nearly always dresses in a button-up crimson shirt, a brown suit jacket, mid-calf-length brown trousers, leather boots, and a short-brimmed brown cricket cap, usually pulled low over his face.
Thanks to his upbringing, Colby is rather morally twisted, showing no distinction between "right" and "wrong" save for when the integrity of the world or his own well-being are on the line, and will go as far as breaking the law to ensure the safety of both. He is also shown to be mischievous, and has a love of messing with others’ heads in his spare time. He doesn't naturally form bonds of trust with humans, but is loved by animals. He claims this is due to the “unusual smell” that he picked up from the streets. He returns the animals’ feelings, often going as far as to share some leftover bread crust with them.
Colby has dabbled in gambling, which he enjoys because of the luck involved, and is fond of woodwind instruments. He even once attempted to teach himself how to play a clarinet, with mixed results. Despite being underage, Colby is also rather fond of wine, despite being far under the legal drinking age. He is a pathological liar, he doesn't like actors or barbers, and his favorite food is tomato soup. Preferably with a bit of bird meat thrown in, and some slightly stale bread on the side to give it some extra crunch.
As far as combat training goes, Colby is quite inexperienced when it comes to hand-to-hand battle. Being a malnourished and unhealthy child, he is at a physical disadvantage when wrestling, and has little in the way of protection. However, after surviving on the streets for so long, he has adapted his fighting style to make up for his disadvantages. Colby moves very quickly, focusing on evasion and out-thinking his opponents rather than overpowering them through force. When force is completely necessary, though, Colby tends towards fighting with weapons rather than his bare fists. He is especially well-versed in wielding lead pipes, cricket bats, razorblades, flintlock rifles, and even rapiers.
After Colby became a Villein (or a Villein became Colby), he acquired the creature's unorthodox ability to steal knowledge through physical contact with the cranium of the person he wishes to steal from. (He usually achieves this simply by punching them square in the forehead.) This gives him the potential to temporarily master any skill or feat, including magic or alchemy, in only seconds. It also makes interrogation a total non-issue for him. However, complicated knowledge that take time to learn normally tend to fade rapidly after Colby uses them. Simple information, like a location or a password, does not fade regardless of how long it goes unused.
