Bill is mean.
You could say:
When charging into rooms, Bill can often be found kicking his dog.
Scowling and cursing, Bill can usually be spotted trudging down filthy,dark alleys at night, spotlit by the sinister beam of the moon. His broad stature, menacing eyes and unshaven face are usually concealed by the shadow caused from his tattered and misshapen hat.
We want your poster to be more exciting than this:

Here is a template you can use:
