Ariakis SchayeaPhysical Description:
Fire / "Firebrand, Asshole, Bastard" - take your pick.History:
Born to a mother with no father in sight, Ariakis had quite a normal childhood, despite the lack of male influence. Not that he exactly needed it. As he grew, Ariakis quickly filled into the young man, and even later the man that he is now. To say that he was a handfull growing up was an understatement.
Prone to be one to instigate fights, and often participate in them, he quickly made a name for himself among the magistrate of the island town that he lived in. Without an authority figure, Ariakis had for the most part been raised without ever being told "no". Or at least he'd never had his mother angry enough at him to enforce the answer. While in school he'd been kicked out multiple times by the village instructors for snarky, rude comments, and the occasional practical joke that went too far.
Once he'd hit puberty, he was an absolute terror to any parents in the general vicinity that had fathered a daughter. However, while his flirtations and wandering hands were abound, rarely was it serious. The cocky young man had secretly decided that he was above everyone in his village, so it rarely went past groping and being handsy. Ariakis never did quite grow out of the "mine" stage that one often went through as a child.
Quite simply, if he wanted it; he would have it, and woe to any that stood in his way.
Once he turned eighteen, he'd come into his elemental affinity with ease. Tossing rocks into the lava flows from a safe distance, he'd felt the flames jetting up calling to him. Without realizing what he'd been doing, he pulled the stuff towards himself. Push came to shove, and his lack of control resulted in him walking back through town, head held high and acting as if nothing had happened. Despite the fact that he was bare assed, and whatever clothing he had left was pock-marked with burns the size of dinner plates. Oddly enough, he was completely unharmed. Strengths:
Much like his element, Ariakis is erratic. In combat, it's made him generally an enigma, and completely unpredictable. However, from this impulsiveness, he draws control. While he may be unskilled in forms of unarmed combat, Ariakis has made a small name for himself and his finesse with knives. His true prowess later will be his utter control and comfort with his element, preferring to use it openly to intimidate, and destroy a target before it ever gets close enough to become an issue.Weaknesses:
While his control with his home element is amazingly focused, Ariakis is well... a bit of a pyro. In passing, he may light a few things on fire here and there, simply to see how they burn. He may call it research, but his inner voice squeals whenever he gets the chance to cause of a bit of chaos by randomly torching a nearby tree. Personality-wise, he can be overbearing, and often this stems from him attempting to take things that aren't his. This includes claims on women, should he ever find one (or more) that he deems worthy.
