A character that the Cabbie Homicide author coined when he does metafiction and real person fiction at his own expense as he does the style known as Real Person Horror (there are rules in the form as don't kill the real person off because they might have a sick fuck inspired by this. See stalker as those who are MarySue might wonder if this is a variation of the development. The character is usually had some college or self-educated (ie attended a community college) and well versed in unexplored subject matter as the roots come from Western Philosophy. As this is often stems from the roots of Amateur Sleth and Philosophical literature; as it's an archtype drawn from problem novels and modeled after Wes Craven's research for material sometimes coming up with subject matter from the same source material but not plagiarism. The character is modeled from Richard Matheson's horror output as he uses real places and real neighborhoods -- a variation of the badass normal coined by TVTropes. The character is a blue collar but transplanted into academia as the origins come from GlendaleHeights and CarolStream. Such characters are a combination of book and street smart as the character is common with urban fiction.
What is an Educated Everyman? The heavy metal pastor who weighed in on the King James Only Movement is the archetype for this character when they're much older. TVTropes would consider the archetype of the Greek philosopher Aesop but minus the funny talking animals. What ever you do, just don't steal their walkman in Cabrini Green because they will give you chase at full sprint.
