PERSON: Holden has stunted social skills. A host of attachment issues and no fear of unfamiliar people lead him to initiate contact, even if those people might mean him harm. He is mostly nocturnal and will probably be the weirdo you meet in the dark alley. He can become fixated easily on people he likes and has sort of a stalking problem.
He experiences a lot of inner pain and often self-medicates with substance. Regular alcohol isn't nearly strong enough anymore since he's been dead for a while now. He doesn't know why he's sad.
POWERS: Holden's body is dead, but he can still use it pretty well, if not better than when he was alive. When his power isn't used for a while, it builds up and manifests as a bloody ooze. The ooze can be any form (mist, thread, solid mass, etc.) Wounds close within a few minutes, making it very hard to take him down. He still needs recovery time from any serious injuries (broken bones, heavy damage that would probably kill a normal person, etc). He is precognizant (at random) and telekinetic, but hasn't tried to control these powers.
FIGHTING STYLE: He'll try to avoid physical fights, preferring to be stealthy and sneaky. Though lazy, Holden is very strong and fast, but he still has the attention span of a ferret. In a pinch (like being eaten alive), he'll try to injure one enough to stop the assault. He won't kill you.
