Physical description: Chance is handsome, tall for a figure skater and very muscular, with beautiful soft eyes.
Family: father, Thomas (bank manager); mother, Ruth (homemaker); triplet brothers, Parris and Basil aka "Baz" (both hockey players).
Personality: Chance is outgoing and kind, with simple tastes and an affable charm. He likes to hang out with other guys, but he equally enjoys friendships with women, whom he treats with deep respect and fondness. There's a strong romantic streak in him, but he hasn't met the right girl to bring out that side of him yet. The only thing that ever troubles him is his occasional memory lapses.
Hobbies/interests: As the brother of hockey players, Chance is naturally into hockey. He does a lot of jogging and working out. He is a talented artist, preferring pencil sketches, and will often sketch scenes of the rink at competitions or practice. Although he doesn't gamble, he is fascinated with luck and odds on an intellectual level. He plays occasional billiards, usually with Eric Lansing.
Personal history: Chance spent his entire youth defying the odds. Born as the smallest of a set of triplet boys, it was feared he might not survive his first few days, but he lived and grew to be a healthy child. Their parents started the three boys in hockey at an early age; they were all good, but Chance was an especially talented player.
Then, at age thirteen, Chance suffered a skull fracture and brain injury in a horrific accident during a game. He spent eight days in a coma and nearly died twice, but pulled through once again to make an impressive recovery. He was left with no memory of the accident itself, and to this day, he goes blank at times on memories of his childhood before the accident.
Whatever you do, don't call him Cedric.
