A black motorcycle helmet, padded gloves, and a black canvas courier's bag rested on the floor beside the big-screen television. The man's skin was the color of café au lait without enough milk, just a shade too dark, his nose broad and his heavy lips full.

His left ear was pierced with many small pins and rings, but his hands were bare of any ring or ornament.

Charley didn't have much money to spend on coffee since he'd worked through the funds he took out of his federal retirement plan after he'd quit the government, and the little bit of money he got from his free-lance work had to go first to his rent, then to his equipment and supplies, then to groceries before luxuries like coffee, beer, and cigars.
