Truman is one of those cool looking yet not actually cool to you unless he approves of you kind of guys from Santa Cruz. He can be found studying at odd hours and in odd places. Notable examples are the floor of ARC basketball courts and sitting on an egghead in front of Shields at sunrise.

Studying at a bar, in his element!

When asked why he is studying where he is studying, Truman begins reciting grammatically correct sentences from his Japanese classes. Rumor has it that he is telling those who will listen about the merits of Japan and why he will be there as soon as he saves up enough yen.
