The Crow for Devil's Night

Every year on October 30, Devil's Night, I watch the 1994 Brandon Lee film The Crow. Since today is also GURPS Thursday, I thought I would stat the character, Eric Draven, in GURPS. This is Eric as he appears in the film.

Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.
