"Shit-Kicking Anti-Hero for the post-ENRON Generation!"
Hutch Owen is a modern-day hobo, a homeless guy with his sights set on the all the crass marketing in this world and the debased way this culture treats its people.
Angry, funny, and arrogant, at times wise in tutelage of the youth who look his way, and at other times desperate and stubbornly living in his own filth. His thing is to keep "telling it like it is" which sometimes means pamphleteering and soapboxing and other times means getting drunk and making a nuisance of himself. Sometimes it works and other times, it just causes trouble.
Whereas the general population answers the economic and political difficulties in their lives with "quiet desperation", Hutch Owen answers it by belting out vituperatives, ranting, throwing stones and occasional pranks. These tactics often go unheard or violently retorted by the general populace, either because they choose to believe they are satisfied or are else they are too distracted elsewhere. Thus, sometimes it takes all of Hutch's effort merely to "rally the troops."
Hutch?s weaknesses: Can be overwhelmed into inactivity. Lured by free food and any excuse to be lazy or carnal.
