Peerless Limit Break Description
- Malcolm hoists his bladerang triumphantly rotating it a few times before lowering it to meet his opponent in a taunt-like motion, gaining temporary invincible status for a duration of 1 turn and inflicting the enemy with a provoke command. During this time, he is enveloped with a green aura to signify his peerless status. Personality:
Malcolm is as calm, level-headed and responsible as one can expect a seventeen year old to be. In situations that require decisive action, he radiates professionalism and confidence much like that of a soldier. Despite this though, as a leader, he is still quite reactive to danger and obstacles in the teamís way. He has yet to develop the savvy and forward thinking that many of the more experienced SeeD officers seem to possess.
Despite being naturally charismatic and a reasonable judge of character, Malcolm has no desire to be a leader. At the moment, he has only accepted the role because he's done so this far. It wouldn't be right to step down unless he had a rightful replacement.
Malcolm is your typical nice guy who managed to make something out of himself despite his traumatic origins. He does show lasting signs of post-traumatic stress from the "incident" in which he was introduced his GF. Despite being a fairly friendly personality , he has an inability to connect with people at times. He has a tendency to push others away instinctively. Malcolm also has a soft spot for kids and harming one is one of his berserk buttons , though he never really had a chance to be one himself...Backstory:
As early as he could remember Malcolm has been a ward of the state or that's how far he cares to remember about his early childhood. He wouldn't have been old enough to remember what kind of people his folks were, but little things like his mothers voice and his fathers cologne he can recall with some imagined effort , though as each day pass they become more figment to his imagination. Malcolm isn't the type of person to dwell in the past. Though his story is quite an epicone.
Malcolm lost his parents in the war around the age of 4...or 5.
He was at that adventurous "big boy" stage. He could walk, he could talk, but he was still an infant in many ways and unable to fend for himself, not long after losing his parents, Malcolm was approached by some local kids who shared in his orphan-hood , they decided that they could look after each so for awhile Malcolm joined their group . Around this time the war officially ended, and people were starting to notice Malcolm and his many brothers and sisters who roamed the streets, taking what they could from who or whatever. Someone decided something should be done and then some men in blue came and broke up the kids.
Some nice people decided that it would be in Malcolm's best interest if he stayed in a house made for other kids like himself.
At his new home he met what would be his third family though he wasn't very liked by many of his new brothers and sisters except for one who talked endlessly about a special hero academy that accepted kids like himself. Malcolm found the idea ridiculous at first, but the kid seemed nice enough so he didn't rain on his friends parade.
The two became close almost as if they were real brothers, and when one was adopted the other insisted the other be adopted too, Malcolm felt a bit uneasy about the adoption but with his little brother with him, he thought he could overlook this uneasiness he felt.
The people who adopted him were...strange to say the least. They lived in a compound full of other strange people with adopted kids who all followed the same teachings. They all believed in someone named Ultimecia as the one true savior, he didn't care for Ultimecia and openly showed it, which earned him a lot of lashings for his rebellious display, the other kids submitted, Malcolm did not. The other kids turned on him for not believing, he knew it was all just lies. Even Malcolm's little brother submitted to the authority of the adults and their lies.
His time at the compound was grueling, he hated every minute of it, Malcolm was left to his own devices in isolation from the rest of the community. What he didn't understand at the time was that the children who were brought to the compound were ritual test vessels for a guardian force by the name of "Leviathan". He didn't know what to make of it all, but kids were going missing and he hadn't seen his brother in awhile so he ventured to find answers himself.
He learned of all the secrets from eavesdropping on one of the cult leaders until he was caught. He learned of the rituals and the many failed discarded test vessels including the friend that was like a brother to him, though he was a dirty heretic, they wanted to make an example out of him, they performed the ritual on him like they did so many other children but something was a bit different with this test subject, he seemed to communicate with Leviathan. Harnessing the power of the sea king.
A freak tsunami hit the compound sometime in the night killing all but one, news of the freak tsunami spread but Malcolm had all ready left the compound before he could be detained and questioned. All he could think about was all the children who were needlessly sacrificed and why the guardian force seem to favor him.
Remembering the conversations he had with his close friend. Malcolm enrolled into Balamb at 10. The rest I believe you have on record. Appearance:
Malcolm appears to be a young dark skin male of roughly above average height (6'0) and weight (170lbs) with a lean but athletic physique. He has light blonde closely tapered hair, high cheek bones, and intricate ritualistic serpent tattoos which span the course of his back upper back and stop just short of his wrists.
