Quick Biography

In short: born in England, he's the second of two sons, the first having died a family hero in World War 1. (That's something he can never live up to.) Was disowned by his father, probably sold his body at some point for money, lived rather poshly on the wallet of others, until he fell in love with Cambridge physics student Rufus Sixsmith. Made his way to Zedelghem, Belgium where he poached off of elderly and declining composer Vivian Ayrs, slept with his wife Jocasta, all the while still writing letters to Sixsmith. He composes his masterpiece there, the Cloud Atlas Sextet, which Ayrs tries to steal from him. That leads him to shoot the old bastard in the gut, become a fugitive, and eventually shoot himself in a bathtub. Fun times.

Physical Abilities

He's 100% vanilla. But he's a musical prodigy.

Superhuman Abilities

His music is superhuman. Typist has been obsessed with it for AGES. (Joking. None.)

Unusual or Magical Possessions



A scrawny and kind of tired Ben Wishaw. So not so tall, lanky, brown hair, lovely grey eyes that are intelligent and rather melancholy. He has a birthmark in the shape of a comet on the right buttocks.


Rather self-absorbed, profiteering, but it's all in the typist's view the result of his general frustrations with life, and comes with the province of being an artist. He's a brilliant and innovative composer who spares no sacrifice for his survival. Bisexual and willing to fuck if it'll serve his needs, he's in love (for life and beyond, with bff Rufus Sixsmith.)
