Claim to Fame

Joao (as he is known to anyone that would actually notice him) is a nobody, a big ole zero. Raised by his grandparents, they have absolutely no control over him. This is due to his parents being useless and basically feral (an attribute that they definitely passed on to their child), and so he runs wild. He cares about little and has next to no drive to better himself. Hanging out is not only a pastime, but an occupation for this youth.


João is pronounced: \ˌzhwau̇ⁿ-pe-ˈsō-ə\ as in (audio link):

Character Details

The devil may care but Joao doesn't! About much at all really. He likes girls and squirrels, Indian food and doing things that are rude, gliding through the sky and trying to get high, sleeping and sex, and other people's objects. Joao is an opportunistic kleptomaniac that absolutely does not believe in paying full price when you can get a five finger discount.

When it comes to likes, dislikes, and political opinions, you're looking to the wrong guy for answers. His dislikes change daily, as do his likes, and he could give a furry ferret's ass about what goes on above his head. The conversation would go: "Is there still food?" "Yes." "Are there still houses?" "Yes." "Is there still air?" "Well, sort of." "That's good enough for me. I'll sorta breathe, eat, and sleep in my house, you can worry about the rest."

In short, Joao really doesn't care. The world moves on around him, he hangs out with his friends. If they move on and he doesn't, he'll lift a hand to wave them off, but otherwise he'll just keep on keepin' on, because more friends will come, more friends will go, but this young man will always be a constant.


Name Relation Notes
Todd Friend Joao has a sick and a not-so-sick fascination with Todd. Sick because he likes to play with the amnesia, making Todd a big toy. Not-so-sick because he genuinely likes Todd and feels very protective over him. For whatever reason he’s determined to somehow imprint himself on the man’s corrupted memory banks and likely won’t ever stop trying. It’s sort of like the hopeless repetitive action of a child who knows the cookie jar is empty, but he still has to check it every time he passes as if somehow they’ll magically appear.
Steve Sorta-friend and hero Captain Sunshine's fall from grace was Joao and his buddies' favorite moment in recent history. Not because the dude was hurt, but because he fell in such glorious style. If you're going to go down, do it cussing a blue streak! Make the mothers cringe! He's also determined to not only become a part of Steve's life, but wants to be immortalized on TV or DVD by having the actor give him a shout out. Joao is an easy friend to please and free loot is a nice side-effect of knowing him.
