You are an executive at Lucky Strike. where your father is in charge. Your company has a great relationship with one of the main ad agencies in consideration for an award this evening, and a lot of this you attribute to the success of your company. You won't hesitate to let them know this either.

Personality Traits:

  • You don't have a very exciting personality, but love bossing people around.
  • You enjoy drinking heavily and typically this leads to sometimes unwelcome advances being made.
  • Some people only tolerate you because your father runs the company you're employed by.
  • Top:

    A classy suit would be a staple for a man with such a high opinion of himself, and you're intent on making sure that everyone you come into contact shares this opinion.

  • Bottom:

    Matching pants and shiny shoes are a must.

  • Accessories:

    A big watch that screams money, and smoking paraphernalia. I mean, can you be an executive at a cigarette company and not smoke?
