  • Physical Description

    Stands at 5'8" with short, somewhat messy dark brown/black hair and green eyes.

  • Personality

    Clove is typically a sarcastic and somewhat hostile individual, sometimes escalating into arguments with less than pleasant suspects, or just suspects who he finds aggravating.
    In spite of this, Clove is shown to frequently develop attractions to at least one person in each district. Usually, the target of these attractions are less than noble people. Among Clove's crushes are:
    Ginger (A prostitute who he had a small crush on)
    Rachel Priest (Who ended up dead)
    James Savage (While not a killer or dead, he's not the most upstanding man.)
    Tess Goodwin (Who is a serial killer)
    Adam Bentley (shady af, also ends up dead)
    Clove is also shown to barely get along with his first partner Jones, who he frequently rails on for not doing much work compared to him, among other things. As the series progresses, though, he starts to show genuine kindness and concern for Jones, especially after Chief King's suicide, which both were a witness to.
    He also has a fondness for drinking after work, which is how he and Roxi in Pacific Bay start an almost immediate friendship.
