I couldn't help myself, team. Admin, please let me know if there is anything wrong with the character(s) that you would prefer to be changed, or if it would be better to scratch anything all together. I wasn't certain if I was going to step on any toes, considering the types of characters that I'm playing. . .
Johann Georg Faust (also known as the mun can't help but take this chance, I'm so sorry). Well. Sort of. Johannes Durer is a bit closer, but he'll deny that.Age :
25Sexual Preference :
Bisexual - If it interests him, he will probably try to become involved with it. Absolute No's :
There are no absolute no's for this character. Please speak to me if non-consent occurs, but I'm certainly not going to begrudge you the opportunity. I promise.
(I also note here : One of his largest issues is getting dirty. *At all* If your character gets frustrated with him, just toss some dirt his way. He'll back off like a cat exposed to water. I encourage this. B) )Appearance :
I don't have as good of a picture for him as I want. I'll attach the resized images, and I'll detail just a little further. Johann has long red hair - a trait that earned him much direct scrutiny in Germany (still uncertain about those witches and all) - and sharp blue eyes. He's pretentious enough to believe that he only requires a monocle, though when in deep studies of books he will wear a full set of glasses. His hair is usually kept tied back to keep it out of his face as he works.
His skin is flawless and unblemished, as would be expected of someone of his "status". The clothes match the user, always made of the finest materials and in the most "flattering" of cuts. He is slightly preoccupied with his appearance, and it leads to him being slightly vain. Role :
Doctor / InformantSpecialty :
a. Cunning. He's managed to worm his way out of more than one situation on tongue and words alone, so to say he's pretty skilled is to say the least. Often uses this silvertongue ability to get himself out of poor situations. Others. . Well, only if asked nicely does he tend to get them out too.
b. Analysis. He's a very intelligent individual. Between being a walking compendium of knowledge and an eager learner, he's pretty ideal for situations that call for more brains than brawn. His smarts, so to speak, are particularly useful with strategy design and information gathering.Biography :
We begin by stating that, though he uses the name, Johann Faust is not
the same German that would later earn tales of him.
We also begin by stating that, though he is not that
Faust, Johann isn't above using the rumours surrounding this name to get by.
The truth is, Johannes Durer grew up in a high-poverty sector of Stuttgart in the late 1400s. His Mother was a florist, his Father a tailor, and somehow they got by well enough. Between his two parents, they worked and saved enough to give Johannes enough funds to educate himself with once his apprenticeship to a local scholar (a rare chance for their son - and one they struggled to obtain) was complete. Johannes would guard these funds with his life as he performed the day in and out menial tasks asked of him by his Master.
He would also wait until the man was in bed to sneak into his private study and read the works there.
At sixteen his Master tossed him out, preferring another apprentice over Johannes. He accepted this in stride, using his funds from his parents to pay for local schooling. He would spend a few years studying all they had to offer him : the greatest of subjects during the German Renaissance. Alchemy, Astronomy, Divination, Religion, Mythology, Literature. . He dove into them all and memorized them verbatum. But no matter how he poured over these texts, funds would hold him back from finishing and gaining the status he wanted.
When Johannes heard of a man from Wittenberg, a one Faust who was acclaimed to be associated with a devil, the young man saw his opportunity and snatched it. He falsified papers claiming him
to be the legendary Doctor. And why not? He had the knowledge. They were near the same age. No one would be the wiser, correct? With people willing to pay him for bogus potions to "heal" (one such case being to a man that wanted to no longer worry about the hair on his face. Johannes gave him a vial with arsenic. He no longer had to worry with his hair, but he certainly didn't have much of a face. .) and listen to his lectures, he settled himself financially and relocated, temporarily, to Italy to enjoy their
Word of a man contracting with a devil circulated fast, and it would only be a matter of time before the Assassins would come to know of Johannes - and know that he wasn't exactly
who he was pretending to be. The ruse was good enough, however, and he was encouraged to keep up the persona. Only those that brought him in, for his head only (certainly not his atrocious fighting skills), know his actual surname at this time.
Gian Giacomo Caprotti da Oreno - Much more commonly known, and introduced, simply as "Salai".Age :
26 (age taken from first meeting in Brotherhood - 1506)Sexual Preference :
Blatant homosexual. Considering the period, perhaps he should not be so open. .Absolute No's :
Please to keeping the poo in the toilet. Otherwise, I don't see him having anything that constitutes an "absolute" no. Please speak to me about non-consensual activity involving his character. I'm not going to tell you no, but it's something I need a head's up about, yeah?Appearance :
Until I can get it uploaded here, I'd say to just look at the official Assassins Creed wiki. Just type in his name and BAM you have him. I'll edit this in just a little bit, however.
Note : This is how they portrayed him within the game itself. I think they missed the mark on his face a bit (check "St. John the Baptist" with Leonardo's paintings and that
is what he looks like. I'll add that soon too.
Technically more of a thief than anything, as well as Leonardo da Vinci's apprentice/servant. He's prouder of this fact than he lets on.Specialty :
a. Has proven himself very adept with a dagger and makes the most of an otherwise small item. It functions well with his fighting style, which appears to consist mostly of quick movements and short, sudden stabs. He isn't going to get very deep with most of his wounds, but you'll bleed out eventually if he doesn't get an artery first.
b. Movement. Salai has admitted himself that he often prefers to use the rooftops to get back to Leonardo's after a night of gambling, as there are fewer people to intercept and offers him more free-room. Due to this, he is quite the weasel to keep up with when he gets going across the rooftops. Odd, considering he's quite the clutz on the ground. .Biography :
Born in 1480, Gian would grow on a vineyard with his Father until around 1490, at the age of ten, he was picked by Leonardo da Vinci to apprentice to him. According to one historical account, instead of picking grapes as he was told to, Gian had disappeared out to the fields and was drawing instead. Leonardo is said to have approached the boy about this and decided, due to the talent that the exhibited, that he desired to have him as apprentice. Regardless of the origin, little Gian was chosen, paid for, and left what was left of his family in favour of this new man.
Leonardo would take to the boy quickly, and by the second day of apprenticeship would decide to commission two shirts, a pair of hose, and a jerkin for Gian. The boy would steal this money and deny responsibility, though his guilt was very evident. On another occasion, Gian would be brought with Leonardo to dine with Giacomo Andrea. His behaviour was, reputably, deplorable. This misbehaviour and mischief would earn his moniker, "Salai", named after the devil from "Morgante." Gian would become so enthralled and attached to this name that he would come to refuse answering to his birth name, now only responding to Salai.
Despite this, Leonardo would remain attached to Salai, and Salai to him. Leonardo frequently aided him in his painting compositions (and, on more than one occasion, had to bail Salai out of jail). In return, however, Salai would come to model for several of Leonardo's paintings (St. John the Baptist is first to come to mind).
Salai would come to discover much about the Assassin's Guild and worse : the Pieces of Eden. For once, it had little to do with his own snooping and curiosity and more having a Master who has difficulties keeping his mouth shut when excited. Salai absorbed all of the information and could spit most of it back verbatim, if only because of how often he had to hear it. His first true interaction with Ezio would come from the older man being sent to retrieve him from his evening gambling (and lead to Salai questioning Ezio's sexuality, the poor man). Upon returning to the workshop, they would find that Leonardo had been taken by Hermeticists to find the entrance to the Temple of Pythagoras. During this time, Salai would aid Ezio in every way he could to find his master.
In the end, they would be reunited. Salai will begrudge that he owes the Auditore, but for bringing Leonardo back to him. . And so he has agreed to work with the Assassins, serving as an aid, a trainer, and a bit of a moocher when he isn't in Leonardo's workshop.
Or in the bar. Gambling.
He really needs to get that under control.
