"Pretty soon, they're gonna all be daywalkers, man. And when that happens, I'd rather be a pet than cattle."
Josh Frohmeyer, or Scud as he likes to go by, was born in New York, raised by his mother after a father he can no longer remember died on service, working for the NYPD. Despite showing a brilliant mind from a young age, he dropped out of school, showing more interest in traveling and learning out in the streets rather than from educational systems he found too boring.
During one of his backpacking trips, he manages to convince a couple of girls of joining him for a little XXX-rated fun inside his tent. Said girls, actual vampires, attack him to the point of tearing pieces of his torso apart, almost killing him in the process. But the vampire hunter Blade was nearby and comes to his aid.
It is then when the young chainsmoking genius becomes an odd acquantaince of the quiet Daywalker, taking Whistler's place as his new weaponsmith.
(ooc: Scud, played by Norman Reedus, is a character from the movie Blade II and sadly neither belong to me. Mun and muse are well over 18 years old.)
