Ok, put the whip down woman... here it is.
Now I have a bunch of reading to do so I am up to snuff with all of the different story threads.Name:
Areli ZubinGod or Goddess Parent:
Mars Claimed or Unclaimed:
21 Background Info:
Areli’s Mother was born and raised in Israel. Rising quickly through the ranks of Israeli police she entered the Mossad. During a joint military operation with The US Secret Service and the Israeli Mossad she was invited to train in the US as part of a joint anti-terrorism task force. It was during the years spent in the US, stationed at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, she met and fell in lust with a rugged Marine Captain who oversaw the training of troops from all branches of the US military as well as those from foreign countries. Their affair was torrid, passionate, and short lived as he was called to change stations. It was several months afterwards that she discovered that he had left her with child. Days later she received dual citizenship papers, and a note from the marine identifying himself as Mars, the Roman God of War, and requesting that she remain in the States and raise his son until the age of two and then to leave him with Lupa at Wolf House. What she chose to do afterwards was up to her. She did as asked but remained in the San Diego area and still has regular contact with her son who is now a man grown and living in the Mars cabin at Camp Half-Blood but is old enough to be allowed the freedom to leave camp when he chooses.Fatal Flaw:
Areli's FF is that he has a tremendously hard time asking for help. He is of the school that anything that is worth being done should be able to be done by you. Therefore, when faced with a challenge he will not ask for others to assist, even if the task is too hard for one person. The side effect of this attitude is that he has trouble delegating or collaborating with others and can be more than a little resistant to other’s ideas unless that person has a proven track record of good ideas (As an example he has little trouble trusting the opinion of Minerva’s kids because of their historical record for wisdom)Weapon or Skill:
Storm of War – Double-Headed Spear with magical enchantments in each tip which are made of Imperial Gold. One tip is capable of dealing a shock of lightening when striking. The second tip is able to cast a concentrated burst of storm driven wind. If the “Wind” end is driven downwards and used to strike the ground it will cause a pulse of wind and thunder to pulse in all directions (360 degrees) for about 15 feet knocking most foes from their feet and causing disorientation and temporary deafness or ringing of the ears. A gift of Aeolus for the completion of a quest and the defeat of several rogue Venti and the subsequent return of one of the escaped Anemoi Thuellai which had been set free by the Venti during the rampage of Typhon the previous summer.
Additionally he carries a wolf’s claw on a chain around his neck that, when pulled from the chain, transforms into a long sword with the head of a wolf on the pommel. The blade is Cold Steel chased in Imperial Gold. The sword was his original weapon and is a gift of his father, given on the day he was claimed; hence it bears the mark of Mars’ sacred animal (the wolf). In addition to the spear and sword he carries a round shield with notches cut into each side that allow him to brace his spear while fighting.Physical Description:
Tall (6' 3") and heavily muscled the son of Mars looks like his namesake, or at least the form that Mars chose when he took Areli’s mother. Though his mother has dark olive skin and raven black hair Areli has medium ash brown hair, trimmed close but not so high and tight as a US Marine would wear it. His rugged good looks would allow him to pass for any highly athletic surfer from southern California. The long and short is that he looks as though he could have easily walked off any Marine base where they trained special ops and bears the chiseled physique of any highly trained Marine crossed with an UFC light heavy-weight. What distinguishes him are the tattoos he bears. High on his right pectoral is the mark of the Roman legion super-imposed over the Wolf mark of his father. It is significant not only of the sacred animal of Mars, but is also an outward sign of respect and deference to the camp director - Lupa (The Great Wolf Mother). Across the back of his shoulders is written his personal motto – “Morte Prima di Disonore” - Death Before Dishonor.
In his spare time between training and serving the needs of the camp and the Gods Areli competes outside of camp in a semi professional MMA organization. It is his goal that when he is no longer living at camp, due to his age, to train and compete in the UFC. His training both in and out of camp make him more that formidable in the Octagon and he promises to do well. He has also considered following in his parents footsteps and joining the US military in a Marine Force Recon division.Fears:
Failure, Betrayal, Losing his Honor in other’s eyes, Not being able to protect those that he cares about most... Dying without a weapon in his hand.Likes:
Motorcycles, fast cars, faster women, Roasted meat, cold beer, Gold Weapons and blowing shit up.Dislikes:
Learning from books, weakness, sneaky people, Salad, Not a dislike but more of a mistrust of the children of Vulcan for the fear that they will try to seek retribution against him for their father’s feud with Mars over Venus.
