I really wanted a picture of my ideal image of Quintyn. I was rethinking parts of his history, and while he's been present for awhile I wanted to solidify who Quintyn is as a fighter and a person. One of the best artists around is
and I know if I clearly explain what I want with visual guides then they can create my vision, I've yet to be disappointed by this artist.

Fighting Background: Quintyn's base is wrestling, he's been competing in the sport since he was 8 and has a high school state championship under his belt. In middle school at the age of 12 he took up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and realized he loves submission grappling as much as freestyle wrestling. Now at the age of 19 Quin is working to become a more complete fighter while still expanding his grappling abilities. Since going off to college on a wrestling scholarship he has taken up kick-boxing in the hopes of rounding out his skill set to trade holds, punches, and kicks with the toughest fighters out there.
Personal History: Quin grew up in a house with 3 older brothers so needless to say he needed to learn to stick up for himself. His family was big on sports and education and each of the boys was expected to go to college someday, given the family's middle-class income the financial burden of such a feat would be out of his parents means. Instead of paying for school Quin would have to fight for it. His brothers all participated in athletics but when Quin got older he didn't show any interest football or baseball, he didn't fit in well on teams. His parents were concerned but when they saw him choking out one of his older brothers they decided to go out of their comfort zones and enroll him in an after school wrestling program. The sport was a fit. Quin learned the basics of how to wrestle in the later grades of his elementary school years. After a middle school meet where he was completely caught of guard and pinned by unconventional means he learned of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His love of wrestling carried over into BJJ and he took up learning the martial art to grow as a grappler. In high school Quin won the state wrestling championship for his weight class which sealed the deal for a full-ride scholarship to a prestigious university. He's majoring in forensic science with a minor in psychology with the dream of someday working for the FBI. He's still in school however and though he loves his college's wrestling team he's taken to training MMA and participating in local tournaments to earn some extra money. After suffering a few losses he realized he was far from a complete fighter. His grappling skills were superb but his stand-up game was amateur at best. After making friends with some local fighters he took to training at a mixed martial arts gym where he's been trying to learn to kick-box. Since becoming better trained in kick-boxing his win-loss ration has drastically improved and he wins far more than he loses. Quin won't stop until he's a complete fighter in all disciplines of unarmed combat, until he's number 1.
