Tru is a six foot individual weighing at about 175 lbs. He is a blonde, caucasian young adult with blue irises. The whites of his eyes are almost always bloodshot. They are also almost always half closed. Despite his "impairment" and appearance, he can see normally. His hair is always a mess hence why he wears a white green poke-a-dot mushroom hat. His hair is long and wavy, coming out from his hat. It goes down to about his shoulders. He keeps his hair brushed back onto his back most of the time. He is rather muscular throughout his body. However, he is mostly stacked in his arms, having to carry around his giant ass pipe to smoke out of and use as a weapon. He also sports a blonde goatee. His sideburns also reach down a little bit past his ears. His skin is rather flawless. He also has two silver dot piercings on the left side of his nose. He also has the word "Zen" tattooed across his knuckles.
For clothing, Tru wears a wool collared button up long-sleeved green and black plaid shirt that he keeps a half of the way buttoned. His sleeves are also pushed up to his elbows. Tru also wears a pair of dark grey shorts that hang just past his knee. His shoes are pair of light brown, leather sandals. His feet are bare within his sandals. His giant pipe is five feet long and a half a foot wide. He holds it like a bat most of the time; although, he makes sure not to spill his weed. He lets it rest on his shoulder when he doesn't use it. His pipe's size is about the equivalent of a baseball bat. His pipe has a very oriental design with a black, red, and green color palette.
Tru Dat is a very relaxed and chill individual who just likes to hang out, have some fun, and possibly loot some poor bystanders. He always has a smile on his face and has an overwhelming sense of humor. Even the shittiest jokes will get a rise out of Tru. He talks with a bit of a pause and may act a little spaced out from time to time. However, he is a rather smart individual and is a strong fighter. He also likes to make weird ass food combinations, which are awful to everyone but him.
Tru isn't much of a ruthless monster either. He doesn't like to kill people, just steal their money, valuables, and possibly their drugs. He doesn't like the marines too much because ... well, do I have to explain why?
Tru is a habitual user of marijuana, converting his weapon into a giant smoking device. It's what gives him so much of his personality. Without it, not even Tru would know who he would be personality wise. Since he was a young teenager, he has just always been high.
Tru also likes a very wide array of food. Due to the munchies, this man is always hungry and is rarely picky on the kind of food he likes as long as it is organic or home cooked/grown. It's a good thing he works out via fighting and the like, or else he would probably be a thicker man.
Tru doesn't really dislike anybody before meeting them and even then he wouldn't really dislike someone unless the other person adamantly hates him.
Tru can be very zen. He has a fascination with medicinal properties with natural substances and organic ingredients. He questions medical knowledge approved by the World Government Health Organization being allied with the Marine Corp. He prefers to use natural organic ingredients to treat himself along with eating organic food as well. However, his munchies don't discriminate from time to time.
Tru Dat was raised in some island in the South Blue. He never knew his Dad, leaving his Mother early on when he was a baby. His mother lacked the ability to be a mother, barely able to care for Tru. Having to work all the time, Tru was left to his own devices without a Mother to really guide his moral compass. He learned to be a nuisance as a child and started to hang out with bad kids which what got him into drugs and the fact that his Mother did drugs as well. Due to his mother's negligence, social workers took him away from his Mother and tried to find him a new home before he was placed in a boarding school like place. It was a private school owned by a master martial artist who taught juvenile delinquents how to fight and channel their angst into fist fighting and weaponry. He also employed other teachers and masters to help the students learn to fight as well as behave. It was an experimental program funded by the Marines to instill into problem children the work ethic of a soldier, to prepare them to be drafted into the Marines.
However, while learning some fighting techniques and getting a taste for combat, Tru still managed to slack off and give a shit about anything work related. He just smoked his dope all day and learned the bare minimum getting yelled at all the time. This continued until he was taken aside and given into a remedial teacher. His name was Master Yung. He was very different from the Grand Master of the school. His way of teaching was strict and didn't allow for Tru to act out. He got to know Master Yung and began to understand him. He stilled smoked dope secretly, but one day he found Master Yung smoking after class. Master Yung explained it as cleansing the mind to think clearly. He didn't mind Tru smoking, letting him use it as a way to relax and improve his combat abilities. He slowly found out that Master Yung was only strict to get the juveniles to stop acting like idiots. Master Yung didn't support the soldier training aspect of the school and apted to teach the students to behave.
Master Yung and Tru began a special apprentice program as Master Yung taught him even more skills that the school didn't even go into. This was where Tru learned the medical properties of certain natural ingredients. How to combine certain spices to alleviate pain, stress, or exhaustion. Master Yung also taught forbidden teachings at the school such as self-awareness and individualism. He trusted Tru to keep this teachings a secret, so he wouldn't be disposed of. Tru learned who he was with Master Yung, albeit he learned who he was high. He was taught to question things and to not take people's words for it 100%. He learned what it means to relax in order to be a better person and a better fighter.
However, the Grand Master didn't know that this what Master Yung really instilled within his students, making them into people and less mindless soldiers. Once he got whiff of the teaching methods, he had Master Yung thrown out of the school and taken somewhere else unknown.
Tru was confused and questioned the Grand Master. Of course, he was told to obey and then given a new Master who was just a pawn to the Grand Master. Confused by the Grand Master's actions and believing in the ideas that Master Yung taught him, Tru ran away from the private school easily. His new master was a master, but he was slower and weaker than Master Yung. Tru lived the rest of his adolescent life trying to remember and learn from Master Yung's teachings until the present where he travelled to the North Blue to escape any threat from the Marines in the South Blue. He still doesn't know where Master Yung is, but he figures it isn't important and that Yung wouldn't want him to worry. He had to focus on himself and on who he wanted to be.

Combat Style Edit
Tru's style of fighting isn't that well trained. He swings his blunt weapon with little training. He aims at his opponent, but he knows no real methods, stances, or forms in order to best attack someone with all he has. He'd be the gringo in an Asian Kung-Fu movie who has "a lot to learn". However, he able to swing his blunt weapon, his pipe, around with a strong force. He uses his massive amount of strength to make up for his lack of efficiency and tactics. He hits hard and bloodies opponents quickly.
