Re: Under the School OOC thread
@AugustusGloop: I sympathize with the eye strain problem, bright on white can be torturous and unreadable, also, that is good advice, I think I'll try that.
Anyway, as for the things everyone knows/should know about '"Griping Gurlin":
Gurlin is mean and hideous, and boy, do the basic sections of the school know it. throughout the years have 'newcrops', students and staff alike complained about his behavior towards delinquents in the school, if not for his extreme measures, then for it's noise pollution as screams of pain occasionally echo throughout the halls and even disrupt ill-prepared classes, but these complaints are generally rejected as he simply finds a different location to do these acts. Those of you who heard or might have been punished by this disciplinarian might remember of/ hearing of tortures varying from flat out beatings,to aiding the man-lump with his toil, to being hung upside-down from a block and tackle as dogs jumped and barked at you, whatever the punishments you've heard or experienced might have been such things were clerically supervised to assure no permanent scars after the punishment (no irreparable physical scars or major mental trauma, at least)
Whilst considering advice, criticism, or alterations from others about what he does, Gurlin tends to also think if there's a way he wouldn't need to change his habits but keep the person quiet about it anyway. but doesn't think it through as much as he should. In addition, He is not fond of people without clear indications of morals.
Gurlin is oft-addressed in derogatory names, when not formally addressed(as rare as that happens) or simply named "Gurlin", or mentioned between the student's by his common nickname. However he normally shrugs off the insulting names with a frown or brief grumbling and moves on, figuring it's almost becoming a 'norm'.
Those of you who actually met Gurlin, or had a conversation with him can tell that while he's a hard man to like, he was once actually a man rather than...whatever he is now. And, if you're observant, could tell that he can probably do better than simply fixing, cleaning, breaking and punishing if he tries, or if asked to.
