ROBERT HOLBRECK A.K.A. BOB
Bob is the sole owner and operator of a small barbershop in the city, a small businessman just doing his best to carve out an existence in the dog-eat-dog world of customer service.
Also he has special psychic powers. You know: sees people’s auras, ghosts, spirits and what have you. In fact he can even screw with them. That’s a little dangerous, though; some of them really don’t like that.
Which is why Bob would prefer to use his hairstyling talents to make the world a little sexier instead of his paranormal ones to make it a lot safer – but if there’s one person who won’t take no for an answer, it’s...

He’s charming, witty and brave - all characteristics he’s trying his hardest to encourage in Bob, whom he hopes will follow in his footsteps by making a name for himself and prospering in the paranormal community of reputable psychics
