Ronald “Hollywood” DuPuis
Ronald – or Ronny, as he prefers to be called – has worked at the expanded Hollywood Museum ever since he was old enough to apply. He loves movies, and he got his nickname, “Hollywood,” because of it. If there’s something you want to know about a movie, you ask Ronny.
In fact, Ronny loves movies so much that not only has he taken many acting classes and joined multiple theatre groups over the course of his life, but he has also endeavored to learn the skills the characters of Hollywood know, such as how to use all kinds of guns, bladed and blunt weapons, martial arts, tech hacking – actual tech hacking – and he is set to graduate with a PhD in Physics, though he was delayed by a temporary obsession with medicine and biology. This has turned him into quite a formidable opponent on the battlefield, and betrays a genius intellect that many have told him is wasted on movie trivia.
Ronny originally worked on this piece of tech in his spare time, trying to figure out how to create 3D projections of old film movies so that he could sing, dance, and act along with some of the greatest stars in history. But in a moment of desperation it was quickly weaponized, and unfortunately, Ronny hasn’t been able to look back.
