Travis R. Beard was a senior at Lake Forest this past '92-'93 academic year and, despite appearing here, finished his college career very definitely in the lower echelons of the GPA hierarchy. Before coming to LFC, Travis attended several small private schools in New England, each of which he was dismissed from for "disruptive eating habits," the result, no doubt, of his being raised by wolves. Aside from writing/lying, Travis enjoys breathing, walking, thinking, stalking prey and, very occasionally, running. He has lived in no less than nine different states, and has committed crimes in almost all of them. After graduating, Travis fled the Midwest for higher ground, and now lives in semi-seclusion in northern Alaska with his pet bear Gives.
