Farley (Dolls for Friends)
Took a break, but now we're back. This is Farley:
From his outside appearance, one might think that Farley is nothing more than a work-shy, sluggish, lethargic, lackadaisical loser, but you know what? They would only be half right. You see despite his disheveled, outward show, he is in fact an Ivy League educated, know-it-all.
After taking his PhD in Ancient Literature, Farley traveled all over the world visiting various locations depicted in his much loved literary works. Once satisfied with that, he enlisted in a traveling Shakespearian theater group and performed a variety of the bard's works in several cities around the world... and then, it all came to an end.
After performing Julius Caesar for the upteenth time, Farley developed a strange, morbid fascination with the play and the man him self and went into a strange period of solitude. He started to withdraw from everyone he knew, mumbled to himself quite often and began to dance around in the town squares wearing nothing more than an ivy wreath on his head. Farley had his troubles.
After several months of professional help, he has finally been able to move past his obsession (he still looks a bit out of it) and has begun to read, write and dress again. He is now looking for a place he can lay low and recoup his physical and mental health and write his memoirs.
