This is his backstory.
His name is Joel. He's about 27 and he has high functioning autism - he is sufficiently able to live on his own and hold down a job without any significant assistance. But he retains a social awkwardness and lack of confidence which is tempered by a child-like innocence and transparent desire to please. This leads to women wanting to mother him and men treating him like the little brother they never had.
He likes collecting pictures of cats and he likes doing jigsaws. He has to ration his jigsawing because he can't leave one once it's started without finishing it. He once filled his parents kitchen with smoke by leaving a pizza in the oven for too long because he became utterly engrossed with a jigsaw of the houses of parliament.
He lives in Swindon and has never left the town other than for some medical tests when he was young. He likes to fly kites. He makes his co-workers laugh by saying he himself is going flying - but it's really him who should be laughing, because when he flies that kite Joel feels more free than any of them have in their entire lives.
Who else wants to be friends with Joel?
