My name is Russell Peters. I am a criminalist, or a 'CSI' if you find that easier to say. I specialize in Hematology and Fingerprint Analysis. I love my job and I'm good at it. I am currently employed as a private forensic consultant for Deathsayers Inc. though I hope to return to my old job at the Central City crime lab.
I have a major in Bio-Chem and a minor in Criminal Justice. I attended graduate school where I obtained an additional degree in Criminology.
My secondary line of work, which takes up most of my evening time, is acting as a Mediator between Supernatural creatures and Humans. It's an interesting, and rewarding, mode of employment. My specialty as a Mediator is contracting with and summoning a variety of supernatural beings. Apparently Mediating is the family business.
Mediating means that I act as a go between for the supernatural and non-supernatural residents of Central City. My job is to try and keep the peace between the two groups as best I can, and to take care of any problems that pop up along the way that could cause tension in Central. You meet a lot of interesting beings in this line of work. Fortunately for me, I've found most of them to be pretty friendly.
I'm not married. My parents are deceased. I share my apartment with a striped, grey tabby named Sasha, a black and white Siberian named Asche, and a brown American Shorthair named Bubs. I enjoy cooking. I'm a vegetarian. When I have free time (which is rare as crime scene analysis is an unfortunately busy line of work) I enjoy reading true crime novels and light fiction, and watching terrible, b-list horror movies.
Recently I've also gotten into yoga, though mostly as a side effect of going through physical therapy for injuries sustained in the line of duty three years ago. Fortunately for me, I have some good work out partners, including my protege, Ivan Macomb.
I think that's all I want to say about myself right now, but feel free to ask my any questions you have. I just might answer.
Currently: Russell Peters - CSI, supernatural mediator, crazy cat guy
The feeling of dread Russ was experiencing earlier has only gotten worse as the night has progressed. Unable to put himself at ease, Russell clears a spot on his living room floor, digs out a piece of chalk, and tries to figure out what is happening the supernatural way. The phoenix, Maiar, shows up shortly after. Death and Rebirth. A New Beginning.
