About Logan Christie

In 1993, Logan was born to a lower middle class family residing in the United States. From an early age, Logan refused to accept the status quo merely on the behest of tradition, instead placing priority on empirical evidence and rationality. Thus, he is a proponent of science and free thought. Logan spends his time studying classical literature, hunting, fishing, passing time with friends, and writing his prospective novel. He is entering his final year of secondary school, and is planning for the future. He intends to attend university at one of the institutions available in his state.
