Bio:

Brian Tanner, age 15, is a pyrokineticist with an unfortunate propensity for trying to tank way beyond his actual capacity to handle combat. He’s one of the “Three Investigators” who’ve been impressed into Wyldfire (and, importantly, its “extracurricular studies” program) since they threw themselves bodily into clandestine busybodying. At this rate, he’s going to keep putting himself in exponentially more dangerous situations without forethought until it gets one of his rescuers very badly injured, because he’s convinced that he and his buddies can handle everything life can throw at them.

Brian wears contact lenses. He is incredibly relieved to finally have extended wear contacts, but he left his backup glasses in Susie’s toolkit, just in case.

Susie made the armor that Brian wears when he knows he is going into a dangerous situation. He likes having that extra protection, but it’s a pain to clean and after a while it starts to itch. Susie says the itch is because it’s not air-permeable, and she has ideas for the next prototype.

Brian is meticulous and patient when he is not swamped with adrenaline. He likes to pick out random pages on a website like Snopes or TVTropes and research the topic into the ground, maybe even make a trip to a university library or a newspaper morgue for firsthand information. He is not as good an overall researcher as Susie is, but he might know something on an oddball topic if it comes up during a mystery.
