Undertaker A funeral director, also known as a mortician or undertaker, is a professional involved in the business of funeral rites. These tasks often entail the embalming and burial or cremation of the dead, as well as the planning and arrangement of the actual funeral ceremony. Funeral directors may at times be asked to perform tasks such as dressing (in garments usually suitable for daily wear), casketing (placing the human body in the container), and cosmetizing (applying any sort of cosmetic or substance to the viewable areas of the person for the purpose of enhancing appearances).

The images above and the overall responsibilities of an undertaker indicate that the job is one from a more horror-esk background and would be considered a bit gruesome and morbid. This could help to influence the look and the personality of the character. However, this could also be considered quite generic so going against tradition is always an option as well. Art Gallery An art gallery or art museum is a building or space for the exhibition of art, usually visual art. Museums can be public or private, but what distinguishes a museum is the ownership of a collection. Paintings are the most commonly displayed art objects; however, sculpture, decorative arts, furniture, textiles, costume, drawings, pastels, watercolors, collages, prints, artists' books, photographs, and installation art are also regularly shown. Although primarily concerned with providing a space to show works of visual art, art galleries are sometimes used to host other artistic activities, such as performance art, music concerts, or poetry readings.

Commonly, art galleries or art museums are either white-washed rooms filled with oddly placed walls to hang numerous artworks and other arrangements of sculptures throughout the rooms, or they are very elaborately decorated and made to appeal to a higher class civilian with a taste for finer things in life. Either of these could be incorporated into my ideas. Bowling Ball A bowling ball is a spherical ball made from plastic, reactive resin, urethane or a combination of these materials which is used in the sport of bowling. Ten-pin bowling balls generally have a set of three holes drilled in them, one each for the ring and middle finger, and one for the thumb; however, rules allow for up to five finger holes.
