A character illustration for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game setting. The intended period is the 1920’s, but this illustration goes equally well for the modern era of the game and naturally suitable for other modern game settings as well.
Mr. Bozeman is a man of rough edges and no-nonsense attitude. He is politically active and leans towards left having very strong opinions about the good life and easy living of the rich of the land. Martin is short-tempered and has a grumpy and unwelcome demeanor towards upper class people – oftentimes handing out nasty remarks meant to demean and belittle. He takes whatever jobs come his way and doesn’t think of himself as being above even menial and low-paying jobs normally reserved for uneducated women or black citizens. However, Martin is right at home with jobs that most common people would judge too risky or dangerous. Private investigator, enforcer, hired muscle, deputy sheriff, bail bondsman … all jobs that Martin Bozeman has held successfully in the past.
Martin is single. He is enough of a misogynist to probably stay single as well. His life and existence revolves strictly around whatever his job happens to be and hanging out at bars – playing guitar, playing pool, throwing darts, shooting breeze on politics and sports and playing cards. He has little to no respect in authorities and has no objections taking job offers that would normally be considered ethically, morally or legally suspect.
