A character who believes that the world is, to put it lightly, a bad place. Whenever they describe something, expect them to Accentuate the Negative. If someone puts forward an idealistic or optimistic premise, the cynic is about equally likely to respond with 'That's moronic,' as 'That's a nice idea in theory, but it's never going to happen', probably pointing out all the flaws as they go. This character may be angry or indifferent to their (perceived) Crapsack World, or may be heavily critical and sarcastic.
