Everyone I know is either dead, bankrupt, humiliated, or horribly injured. You know, the last person who had your job ran into a comically realistic painting of a tunnel on her way home one day and has been trapped there ever since. I spent a week afterwards hunting down the culprit— caught some rabid coyote with a paintbrush in its mouth. The blasted thing painted a door on the wall of its containment cell and hasn't been seen since! Anyway, where was I? Right— point is— don't ask too many questions about me.Bin Folks is the administrator of the Anomalous Containment Foundation, overseeing the foundation's various day to day operations, including; funding, managing, hiring, and the occasional— personal— hunting down of various anomalies. He is a man driven largely by vengeance, and his vengeful pursuits have been both a boon and bane for the ACF.
A Troubled Past
The family curseThe Folks family has been afflicted by a curse for generations— after the ACF's founder, Jim Folks, had walked repeatedly beneath an anomalous ladder along his way to school each day as a youth. In fact, the young boy thought it to be a game, and was noted by his mother (who later died under the hooves of a sentient rocking horse) to chant "I'm Jim Folks, I'm so tiny, if bad luck is real— curse me and my whole fam-i-ly!" Starting with Jim himself, all subsequent Folks have been cursed— to find everyone around them cursed. Those that get close to any of the Folks gain a supernatural magnetism to anomalies. This results, most commonly, in inconvenience, bankruptcy, humiliation, injury, death, or worse.
Rather than interview Mr. Folks about his history, getting close to him and subsequently afflicted by his curse, I will instead include the collective results of the previous interviews below alongside well known information. I urge personnel who come across this document to interpret this information as they see fit. Just don't tell Mr. Folks, please, I need this job.
No man knows my history. Including myself.The fairy would later justify his previous fears by "leaving me in a world without sunshine." Bin and the squirrel would then travel the world in search of the holy grail, until Bin's father died at the "pathetic, withered, snake-like" hands of bigfoot. After this, Bin would take up his father's mantle as the administrator of the ACF. Interview ends here, as the interviewer was trapped in a painted tunnel that evening. In the following years, Bin would work to increase both the size and strength of the ACF— and ensure that no anomaly could hurt anyone ever again. Occasionally, he would leave his post to hunt down an anomaly that had hurt someone close to him, causing many a panic, and mess to cover-up for the ACF. All this, until running into the unfortunate and cosmic truth that "things cost money." Radical changes to the ACF began shortly after this, such as the adoption of corporate sponsors, and the creation of the APRA initiative.
Bin Folks is a jovial, angry man. How he can be both at the same time is considered something of an anomaly itself. Bin possesses a deep-seated hatred for living anomalies— and a shallow-seated hatred for non-living anomalies. Despite this, he acknowledges the necessity of their usage in certain ACF operations. When he isn't out seeking revenge, he can make an effective leader— though he can be stubborn and believe himself to be right when he is not. This attitude has lead him to underestimate various threats on numerous occasions, such as the Halloween 2020 incident. Off work, he is a particularly large fan of discogolf, and is a key player on the ACF's IDGAF team.
Personal vendettasThroughout his life, Bin's curse has struck time and time again— hurting any who get close to him. In many of these cases, Bin has personally hunted down the responsible anomaly as revenge. His office and home are both gaudily decorated with trophies from his victories.
The MananaA recent incident having begun early in his life, Bin staged an entire gala with the "Womanana" as a guest performer, in order to lure out the dreaded Manana. The anomaly had, in Bin's childhood, killed a close friend of his while they were playing in the woods.
Time TravellerIn his early teens, Bin had fallen in love for the first time— with a girl who loved horses more than she would ever care for him. Unfortunately for all parties involved, an anomaly would cause the famed Genghis Khan to spontaneously travel to the future— right where the girl was standing.
Old VisageBin's grandmother would escape her retirement home in a daze one night, alongside the facility's other aged residents. Together, they would stack atop one another to form a human statue that looked a lot like the visage of former United States president Ronald Reagan.
We'll wrap it up as gaudy political advertising. Bin, do not dig up Reagan's grave to make sure he didn't do it.
