PERSONALITY DESCRIPTION
Intelligent elitist with the tendency to judge others when he's doing similar or even worse. Tenacious, Smart, and Fact Telling. Enjoys Poker and Chess. Anything that challenges his mind and body is a one up for him. Tends to be rather standoffish unless you've earned his trust or what he feels 'worthy' of his time. Not the biggest social media person but will reply when addressed. He’s a lot more caring than he shows on air but the judgmental side of him is fully on constantly. Not highly emotional will rather keep a poker face and tell you what he’s feeling than show it. He’s very long winded with speaking and does believe his mindset is and will always be the best mindset. A father first and loves his family. A lot kinder to those worthwhile to him and cold as ice toward those he doesn’t. He’s a dick though at the end of the day and it shows. Sarcastic in a lot of ways and feels he is truly elite no matter what the circumstances show.


APPEARANCE DESCRIPTION
The picbase being Broderick Hunter but he’s a little more beefed up than the base. Not by much but the arms area and chest is slightly more sculpted (If that makes sense, probably not...fuck it lol). A long wingspan for his size (kinda like that Kevin Durant vibe). He has a passion for fashion so he normally wears the high price tag with the hipster/preppy vibe. He wears glasses at times just to look more “smart.” There are days where he will lax back in comfortable wear but it’s rare. Probably after a big match where damage was heavy and the wear is just easier to go with. Tattoo of Gifted along his back between his shoulder blades in Fette Fraktur font.



IN-RING GEAR:
Pretty much like this but the burst color is different every so often. Not always yellow. His wrestling boots are also black with the matching burst color riddled all over them in matching color of the singlet.

He wears a stylish black jacket to the ring with the name ‘Gifted’ etched on the back taking it off once he enters the ring.


STYLE & MOVESET
WRESTLING STYLE: Not the biggest guy in the world but very powerful for his size. He does well with his agility but his fine point is using his strength. He looks to muscle smaller opponents and wear them down with methodical focus on any weak points on their body, either due to previous injury or pain he personally inflicts during a match. If they are bigger than him he relies on athletic advantage and his mind to win out there. He is a rule breaker although he'd rather use his mental superiority/Ring IQ to win over a match.

IF opportunity applies he will do it more than once picking them right back up and throwing them into it again and again.)



CHARACTER BACKGROUND
Born, abandoned at birth, and soon after put up for adoption. DeMarcus lived all of his infancy and younger childhood going from adoption home to adoption home hoping to find a home in an area where most children being adopted were white. Finally he was able to stay at High Plains Children’s Home for a while with an overall positive reinforcement from the home’s director Mrs. Cheryl Macon. As a child DeMarcus had faith his time would come to be adopted but by the time he reached his teen years he knew it was only a hollow wish. It was found out early how gifted and different he was. He never had a problem in school and many times found himself bored out of his mind because his level surpassed his peers. He was different. He didn’t go out and play with the other kids. As a teen he didn’t feel the need to socialize much. He’d rather challenge his mind or those around him he figured intelligent enough to be in his presence. Otherwise he remained in his books and stayed to learning new things. This caught the eye of the director of the home he stayed in Mrs. Cheryl Macon. She saw his different nature and it bothered her that no one would spent the time on nurturing a talent that was obviously exceptional. She spoke to a friend about him over time about this young man who was deserving of a chance. He, Dr. Gerald Hanson Bist, eventually met with DeMarcus and saw the exceptional nature for himself. The white older man, never married with no children adopted DeMarcus when he was 13. Already a well behaved and respectful young man Dr. Bist didn’t have to worry about his actions or choices. All he did was nurture the ability and potential that was already there from the start. DeMarcus excelled high school, he spent a short time there graduating at the age of 16.

Graduated The University of Chicago (Booth) by the age of 20 with a masters degree in finance and quantitative analysis/statistics. By the time he turned 21 he was one of the youngest stock traders in the Chicago area with a well known reputation with Wall Street. Unfortunately his growing clout and success was cut short with the news that his adopted father, Dr. Bist had grown very ill. DeMarcus went back to Seattle, stayed with his father until he passed. The life he grew to have wasn’t interesting to him anymore. Stock Trading was easy, a thinking man’s game similar to chess. He felt all the accolades and money didn’t matter if he didn’t try all that life had to offer him. His father’s last words was “Take this world by the hands. Do all you can before your time comes.” He’s always had the mind to do whatever he wanted. Now he wanted to challenge himself physically. He’s always been a big guy and kept himself in good physical shape. Wrestling? Why not.

Most recently, the graduate of Knoxville Wrestling Institute had three successful defenses as Lionheart Champion at HKW. He shortly departs after and with a lot of self searching Gresham returned to PRIDE Pro in this restart looking to attain the position he had once before. After being a part of some of the biggest matches there once again management and company issues cause his departure to where he wants to be a part of something long lasting with the chance to show his true potential. That brings him to 4CW to spread his word and enlightenment.

REGULAR ENTRANCE DESCRIPTION
The light dim to full darkness.

”They say form follows function….And if you just function properly then things will form themselves”

“Form Follows Function” by Lupe Fiasco begins to play. At that moment a spotlight hits the stage with DeMarcus Gresham there standing with his back to the crowd so the ‘Gifted’ along is black jacket is clear for all to see. He stands there for a moment allowing the spotlight to engulf him as the crowd boos to high heaven against him. With his head down he turns around staying on the stage for a moment before stepping forward. In every step the floorboard beneath him lights up in a Michael Jackson Billie Jean music video kind of way as well as the house lights lighting up a little more and more with each step. As he walks down he sneers at the people around him dissatisfied by their presence. By the time he reaches ringside all the lights are fully on and the spotlight and illuminating floors stop. He stands there for a moment rolling his shoulders before he jumps from the floor to the ring apron impressively.

POWERS: "Coming to you from Seattle, Washington. Standing at 6’6” - 257 pounds of Enlightenment. Your beacon. Your epicenter. Your Gift. ‘Giiiiffffteeed’ DeeeMarccuuussss Greeeeshammm."

He bends into the ring where he slowly takes off his jacket and in a ceremonious fashion lays the jacket on the nearest turnbuckle with the ‘Gifted’ laid out for all to see. Turning around he smirks before pointing at the jacket letting it be known exactly who he is with the chorus of boos and his theme music surrounding him.

“They say form follows function….And if you just function properly then things will form themselves’

At that moment a spotlight hits the stage with DeMarcus Gresham standing there with the (CHAMPIONSHIP NAME HERE) belt hanging from his shoulder. He dusts off the clear shoulder of his black jacket then a couple rolls of the shoulders as he stands there looking left to right calmly as the crowd boos immensely. He lowers his head down and he moves in a slow 360 on the stage for a moment allowing the fans to view all of him and his championship. He nods his head upward after that in a very ‘above all’ fashion and starts walking forward. He takes his steps down the rampway each time he steps on a new panel piece of the floor white pryos shoot up in the air illuminating the area. As he walks down he sneers at the people around him dissatisfied by their presence. The fans show their hatred for him in return. He stands ringside for a moment before he jumps from the floor to the ring apron impressively keeping the belt with him.

POWERS: "On his way to the ring from Seattle, Washington. He is your shepherd to Enlightenment. The ender of empires, destroyer of dynasty, and the surcease of sovereign. Your 4CW (CHAMPIONSHIP NAME HERE) Champion “Gifted” DEEEEMarccuuussss GRREEESSSHHAAAMMMM!!"

He then takes the (CHAMPIONSHIP NAME HERE) belt and in the same ceremonious fashion places the belt on top of the folded jacket. Turning around he smirks before pointing at the jacket letting it be known exactly who he is and also tells the ref they are not to touch his belt until giving clearance to do so.
