d20 Modern: Beginnings
Abbot Hightower, the ex-convict. Abbot has spent the past 25 years in various penitentiaries. His last three years were spent at the relatively benign Marley Correctional Facility, a reward for good behavior. He just finished serving his sentence several weeks before, and has taken a ride to Eerie, where he hopes to gather himself before hunting down his former accomplices, twins Tommy and Bruce Bruce, who were never caught for the bank robbery Hightower participated in (and who he figures owe him a large sum of money). He also wants to know what happened to his brother, an Eerie police officer who was killed as recently as June 2006.
He cuts an odd figure getting onto the bus in the same clothes he wore into prison in 1978, and carries nothing on his person. He lives there in a decrepit building at the Old Industrial Area and is looking for a job. What kind of job is he looking for is unknown.
