Function Order: Ti-Se-Ni-Fe
Odd has a cynical, and detached way of looking at his life—when we first meet him, he says that they arrested his mother for being insane (which is why he hides his powers) and his father abandoned him as a child. But rather than carry these abuses around like wounds, he simply has gotten on with things. Odd figures out logical fixes as he goes, and they are not all, um, exactly within the confines of the law. He realizes that reporting a dead body in his house is a frame job, and would land him in lockup for a few hours while they investigate, long enough for the bad guys to carry out their mass crime, so he wraps up the body, dumps it over a railing, hauls it to an old warehouse, and locks it up. Later, he revisits it for needed evidence. He rebuffs his girlfriend many times when she asks him to drop the case, out of a sense that he needs to help people and make himself available to them, through solving what happened to them and acting to prevent bigger murders. In his pursuit of a man who killed a teenage girl, Odd pursues him down the street, jumps over a hedge, follows him into a house, puts his head through a mirror, smashes a clown lamp over his head, and beats the crap out of him. He follows a suspect to his home, where he breaks into his flat, evades his dogs by climbing onto the roof, explores the contents of his kitchen (and finds severed body parts), and winds up dumping his dead body in an old warehouse to give himself more time to stop a crime-in-progress (since he know the police would detain him). When a man shows up at the church to terrorize himself and his girlfriend, Odd locks them in a back room and makes a plan to “get out” (“I’ll open this door; if he isn’t there, you run through it”). He is also a great short-order cook and knows how to flip pancakes like nobody’s business. Odd has intuitive flashes sometimes quickly (connecting the dots to figure out where the crime will take place and that multiple men are involved) and at other times, more slowly (assuming based on the evidence right in front of him, that he’s dealing with a man and not a poltergeist). Odd realizes late in the game that he has been “duped” by the evil spirits. He isn’t always aware of appropriate boundaries, since he constantly phones the chief of police in the middle of the night.

Odd takes a lot of his bad situations and makes them funny for the audience through a cynical inner commentary on things that focuses on finding and pointing out the humor and irony engaged in his situation. He works with the cops rather than against them in solving crimes, and can sometimes be too counter-phobic in chasing after bad guys in a desire to bring them to justice. He doesn’t mind consulting others for their thoughts on his intuitions. Aware that if the minions of hell realize he can see them, they will arrange his death, he continually pretends not to see them. He is cautious whenever he isn’t sure what he is going into, and errs on the side of encouraging his friends to avoid danger (he tells one girl to get out of town, and wishes his girlfriend would take the day off work). He connects to others through teasing.
