Creepy Custodial Carl

Every theme park has that creepy custodial guy....& Crackerland should be no different.... Custodial Carl, i vision as Billy Bob Thornton character type from the movie Sling Blade.. No social skills,.mumbling to himself & gives off that serial killer vibe.... other cast members keeps clear of...i think nice twist might be he has softer side nobody knows about. what should it be? collects candy wrappers? former ballerina in his youth... I dont know, lets explore this character
