Description

He might be shorter than the average man but he makes up for it in his swagger. His stature is a little on the portly side, reflecting in a thicker middle and smaller shoulders. Wide lips and nose make up a good portion of his features but the set of smaller dark eyes hold a great deal of keen intelligence. Mousy brown hair is kept short at the sides and longer on the top - messy more often than not. A tweed vest rests over a dark grey button down and the colorful scarves he is known for are wrapped about his neck. A loose set of khakis lead down to a pair of leather loafers.

History

Born and raised in Mythic Wood. His father, Kevin Allen was a beloved mailman for Mythic Wood and Alan always respected his father and the job he did. Mrs. Nancy Allen (nee Brox) was the most wonderful mother. She was also a bit of a local celebrity in the Coos County Fair, because she usually placed first in the baking contest. This may have contributed to the weight problems Davis has struggled with his whole life.

Alan has always been extremely proud of his small town. He graduated from Rocklin High School in 1990, and later from Southwestern Oregon Community College in 1995. He started off in the post office of Mythic Wood as a clerk, but his joy of exploring his small town wasn't sated behind a counter so he became a mail carrier. While appreciated by the community for his dedication to his job, he brings more than just the mail. Those that chat with him while he works his route, find that he is a font of community news. He doesn't peddle gossip, just the facts: Mrs. Jones had her baby, Mr. Smith is sick, young Jane Johnson got married, and so on.

Davis never settled down, as he never found the right man, and while his parents accepted his homosexuality, they also raised him with the values of their day, instilling in him the sense that the world would not be so accepting. After his mother died, he watched his father mourn and found his one regret was not having someone special like that. But the worry about how the town would react weighs on him, so he has never revealed his orientation publicly. It is a dilemma that weighs heavy on Davis's shoulders. Happiness and acceptance. Can he have both?
