Character's Fully Name: Stu "East Texas" Redman
Played By: JP
Character Type: Mortal
Hair: Light Brown
Personality: Quiet, but rather straight forward.
History: Stu was born and raised in Arnette, Texas - a small
town in eastern Texas. One of three boys, Stu lost his father
when he was only seven. He went to work at the age of nine unloading
trucks for Rog Tucker for a mere 35 cents an hour. A few years
later he went to work at the stockyards where he lied about his
age to get more work hours. The end result was twenty back breaking
hours a week for minimum wage. Stu never had many friends, but only
because he never had time for them between school and work. His
youngest brother Dev died from Pneumonia when Stu was in his early
teens. He never fully got over losing Dev. Stu felt a certain guilt
over it because his youngest brother's death was looked upon more
often than not as one less mouth to feed.
In high school, Stu began to play football. He cut out work hours to
play because his mother told him football was his one way ticket out
of Arnette. Things were looking up when tragedy struck again. Two
months before his graduation, Stu's mother passed away from cancer.
He was left alone to support Bryce - his other brother who was three
years younger than Stu. At that point Stu turned down the scholarship
he was offered to take a job at the local factory. It was Bryce that
finally did get out of Arnette. His brother now lives in Minnesota and
is a systems analyst for IBM.
In 1999, Stu's wife died of cancer only after 18 months of marriage.
After her death Stu spent his days at the factory and his nights at
Hap's gas station or over at the Indian Head drinking Lone Star beer.
In June of 2002, Stu Redman had the misfortune of being at Hap's gas
station when Campion crashed into the gas station pumps. Campion, who
had formerly worked on Project Blue, was infected with what would
become well known as the 'super flu.' His death led the government
straight to Arnette, Texas. The agents quarantined the entire town of
Arnette, Texas in Stovington, Vermont, where one by one Stu watched
his friends and neighbors die. As days turned into weeks, it became
apparent to everyone that Stu remained unaffected by the flu. Even
the hospital staff was infected by now, along with half the world.
Angered by Redman's ever present health, the only doctor who
remained alive attempted to kill Stu, who was forced to shoot the
doctor in self defense. He then narrowly escaped with his life......
Meeting up with Fran Goldsmith, Harold Lauder, Glen Bateman and
Kyra Andrews first, Stu realized the dreams he was having were not
just his dreams. The group snowballed, growing in number until
they arrived in Boulder, Colorado.
