- He was tall, not too tall. Tall enough to have to duck through low doors. Tall enough to be asked to reach things down from high shelves.
- His gut had the the soft padding of years of pleasant eating and to much time working at the web face rather than the coal face.
- His hair was dark with a few blond strands and maybe the odd white one too. It varied in length from short to slightly too long.
- Like his gut his face was soft. Once the skin had been tight, a little gaunt, now though it had a soft lived in quality.
- His nose was in the middle of his face where it ought to be.
- His eyes of indeterminate colour sat behind rimless glasses resting high on his nose. It hadn’t moved from its proper place.
- His teeth were all there all his own originals. They looked well looked after like teeth that had taken a lot of abuse to get in the right place so he didn’t like the idea of losing any of them.
- A dark shadow showed around his jaw. After shaving his face was free of the of it for a second or two but then it returned.
- A little fine, dark hair peaked from the open neck of his shirt and from under the coughs of his shirt.
- His hands were small, out of size with the rest of him. Too small to be pianist’s hands. They wern’t the hands of a man who did a hard days labouring. They were soft like his face and his gut. The only marks were a mess of paper cuts and a couple of chunks of scars on the finger tips of his left hand. If you looked really hard at his right hand you might find a saw spot from holding a pen but it had almost faded into history.
- He kept his nails short and clean. The lengths uneven, cut with scissors but bitten off when one broke. They could have used a bit of work with a file but that just crossed too far over the line from personal hygiene into preening.
- For a man with a soft gut his legs were surprisingly muscular. Maybe he walked places.
- Like his hands his feet appeared small for his size. The shoes were clean and looked after. They needed to be as he inflicted a couple of miles on them every day.
