Default Recruiting: Zombie Apoc Game in Progress

Hey folks. I've been running a Zombie Apoc game here on the forums for my local gaming group. You can find the IC thread here and the OOC thread here.

Recently, one of the players has had to drop due to lack of available time, so I have an open slot.

Unfortunately, I need the new player to take over an existing character. Some of the character's backstory has already been established and is a critical part of the game, so it really needs to stay "as is". Some other things are a little more malleable.

The character in question is Frank Dillinger, an ex con who grew up in a foster home with the other PCs.

You'll have some flexibility with Frank's backstory (but not too much), and I'll let you build him the way you want from the template options posted below.

Template Details:

30 points chosen from among Danger Sense [15], Daredevil [15], Flexibility or Double-Jointed [5 or 15], High Manual Dexterity 1-4 [5/level], Night Vision [1/level], Perfect Balance [15], or Smooth Operator [15/level].
