Dragon Tooth Weapon Description:
A simple spear with a powerful metal tip. It is wholly unremarkable, save for its name. Specialization:
Diplomacy. Charming and charismatic, and possessing a way with words, he is quite good at mediating disputes. This also lends him well to acts of subterfuge, however, he would not use his talents for such nasty business, without just cause.
Chocobos. No, seriously, he is excellent with chocobos. They instinctively trust him, and he understands them on a primal level. He is
the chocobo whisperer. Personality:
A good man through and through, he enjoys taking the high road in most situations. He believes in the things that some people may call silly;t hings like chivalry, honor, respect... knightliness. At the same time, however, he is a somewhat pragmatic person, and he knows that their is a time and place for such things, and then, their is a time and place for stabbing things until they stop trying to kill you. Backstory:
His father was a chocobo breeder, and an early exposure to them, and perhaps just good genetics, is responsible for his fondness towards the animals, and his ability to understand them intuitively.
Alphonse was sent off to Garden when he was young because he always went on and on about becoming a knight, just like in the stories his mother read to him. And eventually his parents decided, that if he truly wanted to do that, he would need the training.
When he was fourteen, he went for a walk to try to get to Balamb; he was curious if he could handle it. He wanted to do it as a test of his own endurance. Along the way, he encountered a chocobo trying to protect its chiciobo's from monsters.
Unwilling to ignore the situation, he plunged headlong into what was ultimately his first real battle. Though heavily injured, he did eventually emerge the victor.
Afterwards, he managed to get maybe twenty or thirty feet away from the mother, as it fussed over its babies, before he collapsed.
He woke up later on, in a forest closer to the Garden. The mother chocobo had carried him off, and tended to his wounds [ChocoCure], in thanks for his earlier assistance, most likely. He spent some time with the mother and her babies, who seemed willing to trust him.
For the next several years, every time he got a chance to, he'd go out to visit the chocobos, and play with them, and bring them Gysahl Greens and other treats. Some times, he would go monster-hunting around the area, keeping the nest safe and secure.
A little over a year ago, one of the fully grown Chocobo's, whom had taken an extreme liking towards Alphonse, decided that it wanted to always be by him. He took the time to train the Chocobo that would be named Ripper, how to fight, how to handle his weight, and many, many other things; he was inspired by the old tales of knights in shining armor, riding upon Chocobos.
Quite recently, he managed to commission a special suit of armor and claws for Ripper, which keep the big bird safe, while also giving him a suitably menacing appearence. Ripper is aptly named and attired; the chocobo has a serious vicious streak, and an over-protectiveness of its rider. GF APPLICATIONName:
