Sing a Song of Blackbirds
Benjamin Waters is the mayor of Willowmaid, and has been since he was appointed to the position by the Ravens ten years ago. He is a brilliant accountant, but tends to be simpering and passive. He dislikes confrontation, but is more than willing to speak his mind about any subject. In fact, despite his polite demeanor he often comes across as being tactless or clueless. Benjamin tends to spend most of his time at Town Hall, managing the finances of the town and its citizens.
Although he frequently gets into fights with Hailey, he loves her dearly. They have five children, the oldest of whom is Kevin Waters. Benjamin is supposedly the primary caregiver for the children, but he is rather bad at it and his children are, for the most part, perfectly able to take care of themselves.
Benjamin Waters is a man of medium height, pale skin, blue eyes and brown hair, though his hair is rapidly turning grey and he is going bald besides. His face is already becoming very wrinkled with lines of worry, and he has a tendency to squint, even though he already wears spectacles.
