Hi, I'm Wash. I pilot a midbulk transport, class 03-K64 (Firefly) named Serenity. That ship's the second love of my life right after my brilliant and gorgeous wife Zoe.

Except, uh...things've gotten kind of humped. In the way the 'verse is "kind of" big.

Anybody wanna explain why Mal decided to redecorate the bridge as a bar?

This is a roleplaying journal for [info]milliways_bar. Hoban "Wash" Washburne hails from Joss Whedon's short-lived but brilliant Firefly (and its movie continuation, Serenity), and he belongs to everyone associated with that intellectual property...yeah, even the crack-addled Fox execs who never deserved him in the first place, grumble grumble not that his mun's still bitter or anything. No profit's being made, and no copyright infringement is intended.
Unless otherwise credited in the keywords/comments, all icons were made by the mun. The vast majority use screencaps provided by Said mun's contact/availability information can be found here.

Physical characteristics and other notes:

Wash is pretty unremarkable as far as looks go. He's a teddy bear of a guy in his mid-thirties, about six feet tall, with strawberry-blonde hair that never, ever seems to lie flat; that, and he has a tendency to wear the loudest Hawaiian shirts he can get his hands on, which often just accentuates how ridiculously pale he is. In the rare instances when he goes shirtless, several faint scars, each about the size and shape of a quarter, can be spotted on his upper chest.

It's been said that he looks a little bit like [info]the_woodpecker around the eyes, but they'll both deny it 'til their dying breaths.

Updated 10/22/05: In addition to the older scars, Wash now has a very obvious softball-sized patch of scar tissue just below heart level. He also walks with a prominent limp, favoring his right leg, and regularly uses a cane to help him get around.

Like everyone else in his world, he also speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese. His mun doesn't, so she's the one to blame for any mistakes or manglings that'll inevitably crop up. Translations can be found here, but most of the time, the gist of what he's saying can be figured out from context. Anything extremely important or much longer than ten words will be kept in English and put inside {braces}.

As of October 19, 2005, Wash has moved into AU territory. [explanation whitetexted for Serenity spoilers -- highlight to read:] After being impaled in Serenity, Wash was resurrected, brought back to the bar by several Milliways patrons, and healed (unbeknownst to the rest of the crew at first, who assumed his body had been taken by Reavers). He's alive, well, and still flying. [end whitetext]
