Terrance Addison (mostly referred to as "Mr. Addison") is the landlord of Addison Apartments. He sells tea to his tenants for 25 cents and 50 cents for non-tenants.
Long before the arrival of Sal Fisher, the Addison family purchased a generous amount of land from the last surviving member of the Rosenberg Clan, Alyson and began to build housing complexes over the already existing old establishments.
Young Terrance, shy and introverted, thought the world of his father and aspired to perpetuate his legacy after his passing. When that time came, however, Terrance isolated himself from the rest of the world, communicating with others only to have short conversations, attend meetings, or sell his tea. Despite this, Terrance kept a close eye on his father's establishment and the tenants that resided within.
Following the murder of Sandy Sanderson and the arrest of Charley Mansfield, Terrance quickly installed new security cameras throughout the apartment building to placate any concerns stirring among his tenants.
When approached by Sal and questioned about following his own aspirations by opening a tea shop, Terrance gives the idea some thought before affirming his resolve to remain loyal to his father's vision but is willing to start charging his tenants for tea instead of handing it out for free.
In the days leading to the Bologna Incident, Terrance began running a mini business with his tea from the comfort of his room and advertising with a sign gifted to him by Larry Johnson: Addison Tea Please and Thank You! 50 cents a cup. 25 cents for tenants.
All that's seen of Mr. Addison is his eyes, mainly. It seems that he has perhaps dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, and somewhat indistinguishable skin color.
When he was young, Terrance Addison was very impressionable and eager to please his father. Even then he was a timid individual and it only intensified when he lost all of his family members to the passage of time.
He continues the family business with a skip in his step and friendly attitude towards tenants, newcomers and longtimers alike.
