George Barton

George Barton is a tall, plump construction worker in his mid-forties. His large appearance stands in juxtaposition to his quiet demeanour. Some may call him a gentle giant. He comes from a lower-middle-class background and did not get the privilege of higher education. Having dropped out of school early to start working, he grew functionally illiterate. Since his wife passed away, he was forced to raise his daughter Amelia on his own.

Male, aged 42 to 46
