#123 Ian Thomas Quinn (300 words)

Inspired by: John Wesley Harding 

Days after the daring airplane heist that never made the news, a new hundred millionaire moved to Beacon. His name was Ian Thomas Quinn, and there were many things he thought needed to be fixed. 

If anyone knew who Ein Quin was, they’d recognize him instantly as all he did to conceal his identity was wear a false mustache. Ein quickly learned that you can act, however, or wear whatever you want and be celebrated for it if you have enough money. 

A couple days after the heist Ein’s rent was due, he responded by buying the whole building. He knew first hand how awful the living conditions we’re and intended to fix them. Make the apartment building a shining beacon for Beacon. Create positive change hyper-locally and spread his vision out across the city. 

“You don’t think anyone’s going to wonder where you got all of this money from?” Bay Cat, Eins’ cat, asked one night.

“I’ll say I inherited it from an eccentric uncle who made me grow up in a haunted mansion,” Ein said while watching TV. 

“As long as you have any explanation,” BC said before stretching out and going back to sleep.

It’s been a strange year for Ein. It started out poorly when he almost died meeting a bear. When he recovered, he found he had the natural ability to drive or pilot any vehicle. He reset his life by moving to a new city. He worked for a billionaire, got a girlfriend, got dumped, got a job in a hospital, quit, and then robbed another billionaire. He may or may not have traveled to a parallel dimension and received state of the art tech, allowing him to understand any language, including animals. 

His life has gotten out of hand, so he’s normal now.
