Name: Clem Fandango
Age: 50 (but some of those years were spent in a relativistic anomaly, so he looks 30ish)
Lives: Wailing Rock, in the woods.
From: Bar Harbor, Maine
Education: He knows he has degrees in computer science and communications.
Occupation: None. Living off a pension. Freelance DJ (court ordered)
Marital Status: Legally married to Gran Fandango; spiritually? It's complicated.
Eyes: Blue (well, the one that still works)
Clem Fandango's personality depends on 1) time of day, 2) the proximity of alcohol, 3) the proximity of his partner, Gran. For the first, he is grumpy and growly in the morning if you see him on the street. At bars and clubs, he is enjoying the prospect of his next drink while consuming the one in his hand, and if Gran is around, he's like an over-excited, love-struck puppy.
Once you get past these superficial markers, Clem has a dry sense of humor and an amused, almost frightening thrill about being in a place weirder than Castle Rock or Arkham. He is pretty much an introvert until you add alcohol. At that point, he either becomes a generous host or a total dumpster fire. He is trying to keep the latter under control by staying home, enjoying the company of his friends, and figuring out why the hell he ended up on this island.
WHAT HE HAS ON HIM:
A bronze medallion around the neck that makes all non-humans uneasy about it and what it might do if activated or messed with.
A beat-up black leather wallet containing a few fives and an Enterdyne National Bank Visa card.
A wedding ring.
Usually a leather-bound journal or novel.

Clem arrived via ferry after it arrived in Wailing Rock. He was bounced by one of the operators of the ferry who thought he was drunk. Really, Clem was drugged and his last memory was being in a pub among friends in a small Bar Harbor Tavern. He had no idea how long ago that was. It might have been hours or maybe even months.
Wandering town, he thought for a while he was on one of those New England artist colonies until he realized the sun was going the wrong direction. As the hours passed, he found himself in the woods and a campsite with available cabins. A red one caught his attention with a familiar-looking symbol painted on the front wall and a letter pinned to the door by a Swiss Army Knife with his name on the facing side.
Clem learned from this that the person who brought him to Wailing Rock did so in order for him to "lay low for a while." And the interior was littered with type-written pages of some indecipherable academic subject, a few cheap furnishings and five cases of warm beer.
At this point, Clem is not so interested anymore in figuring out who he was. He's met that floating asshole farting green smoke carrying a book ...and doesn't need to do so again. He's met people who bring him into the now and make him feel like a decent human again.
That's not to say his first few nights weren't rough.
UPDATE: Following an encounter with the aforementioned asshole floating in a green fart cloud, Clem had to be "healed" and in the process, regained some of his memories.
Clem was once a member of a secret society of monster hunters and recently "retired" by them so he could finally enjoy life. This was an involuntary retirement and the details behind that decision are still unknown, but as far as the outside world is concerned, "Clem Fandango" was the victim of a carjacking in Bar Harbor that ended with him being tied to a tree, stabbed, and left to be consumed by the animals of the Acadia National Park.
