"It's bate that you were bare prang!"

A breath of fresh air. Sexy as hell and the best kind of cool. Looks 15 years younger than he is. Warmly kind. Genuinely caring. He can be alone and doesn't need the attention or reactions of others to know who he is. Comfortable in his own skin and peaceful. Just needs more discretion in the friends he picks.

Named for Norman Bates, the mentally unstable antagonist of the film Psycho, a Bates is a person who never threatens anyone's life directly, but very obviously gives off the "I'm going to kill you in your sleep and roll around in your blood giggling like a schoolgirl" vibe. A Bates is almost always completely oblivious to the fact that they're a Bates. Also usually very poor at reading hints to leave others alone.
Janet: You know that kid John? He's a total Bates.

Brad: You can say that again, he keeps looking at me like he wants to cut out my liver and eat it raw.
