A Golden Bible and Necromonicon (Book of the dead or demonic spell book...) on a golden chain, as well as a sliver cane sword inside of his walking stick. Knowledge:
Beyond knowing how to sword fight extremely well when compared to most normal humans, Charles knowledge comes from his connection to his guardian's whom he had used to gather a mental library on the occult and holy arts and history. His ability to use most of this magic is very limited, but it is tactical knowledge and ability to problem solve along side his familiars that are his strength.Misc. Tidbits:
His hobbies are quite simple in that he feels the need to assess the potential threat of the students of the school to the demons connect to him. Meaning that he makes awkward attempts to be a social butterfly when it goes against his normally reclusive personality. So Charles makes attempts to join anything that looks interesting simply to meant new people. Bio:
Charles life up until he summoned Pitou, is completely clouded in mystery. The true events which make it up have been buried down so deep into the repressed corners of Charles mind had been buried down so far, that no else knows, but Pitou. He only knows because his summon to earth was born from the very pain that caused Charles to attempt to try to and kill himself anyway, and you can bet he will never let anything bring them back to the light of day. Given that they could only bring pain to his master he has never seen a reason, but he has purposefully added some happy memories that where never there through the use of their mental connection. Simple things such as picnics and trips to the mountains with his parents as a child, which are vague enough that Charles believes they happened, but has no exact details on when they happened. The only exceptions to this are the memories that Lilith knows because of what was required to seal her contract to Charles soul, but because of her motherly nature she agrees with Pitou on the matter that Charles should never know the truth. Reaf for its own selfish reasons of curiosity, and because it wants its master to grow stronger from overcoming what happened to him thinks differently on the matter, but it can do nothing about it because it does not have access to these memories. Despite all its magical ability some of Pitou’s memory suppressant drugs where quite effective.
Things changed quite a bit for Charles after Pitou’s appearance, though it wasn’t exactly for the better. Despite the fact that the demon’s presence kept him in a lucid state, Pitou’s own dark nature lent itself to encouraging Charles to do things he never would have before. At the time despite the presence of a veritable legion of imps, and eventually different familiars such as cats made of shadows, kitsunes, and ravens who were risen from the grave… Charles still truly only had Pitou as company. A counter balance was needed before he completely lost himself in the darkness he had become. So with the reluctant guidance of Pitou as well as repeated promises, arguments, and even statistical studies about the need for a second guardian the pair found a Necronomicon which contained the spell needed to a demon of immense power. Unlike Charles first summoning this was one was carried out with scientific precision, and little fear on the part of the human because he knew Pitou could keep him safe from most things that a mortal could summon form hells depths without losing their life. Little did Charles know it would be his most trusted confidant who would use him in an experiment to see just how powerful of a demon could be put under mortal command.
Through the use of blood drawn directly from its heart Pitou diluted the potion that Charles had to drink as part of the ritual, giving Pitou a method of controlling whatever came out, but at the same time giving the spell a degree of potency that it would have never had before. Reaching down into the depths of hell what was drawn out into the world on that dark and stormy night in the middle of the forest is still something that confounds Charles to this day even if it obeys him. A being which he has only ever described as pure darkness, and one which has only ever whispered the true nature of its identity into Charles a few times. Even Pitou admitted to Charles as his new guardian emerged what he secretly had done, and that if he had not this creature was something even he greatly feared. It was the first time that Charles had actually seen his guardian show fear… even as the entity melted down and assumed the form of a red eyed teenage girl with a Kanata at her side who walked forward and down into Charles shadow. Sinking into the ground like she was walking down stair the girl said in a very monotone voice that echoed through the forest with the authority of a god, “I shall be within the darkness of your shadow, if you require my services.”
After the demon which called itself Reaf settled itself into Charles service, strange things began to happen around him. Both his father and mother disappeared on a yacht trip off the coast, two weeks after they had been reported missing the ship was found undamaged with no one on board. Leaving the cause unexplained to everyone, but Charles who when he asked Pitou and Reaf he got two separate answers… from Pitou, “Nope they were no good for experiments, emotional damage to Charles at the present time to risk… too many variables.” The answer from Reaf, “Not exactly the tasty things I have ever eaten…”
Even if Reaf’s words had any meaning to them, beyond what they implied the result was the same, that young man was now the sole heir to his father failing chemical company. As well as the fortune that went with it, and the first thing that he did with it was scrap it all and sell it off to oversee buyers. Then secretly had whatever Pitou needed shipped to his own home and instilled in a large basement lab, which the demon and Charles built together during his first year in college. The more they learned the more they could build, and whatever they didn’t have Reaf simply stole from the black market, by itself becoming a sort of ghost story of deals gone bad. His slow accumulation of power, and Reaf’s presence would be what drew to his side his third guardian. Pitou’s closeness to Charles, and ability to in effect paralyze Reaf both in movement and power with a touch created a jealously in the demon who needed a third party that Pitou could not effect. So with a simple whisper of the right words to the right ears and by having Charles in the right place at the wrong time… a meeting with Lilith was arranged.
The terms of the contract were quite simple, sex was all that was required, but getting Charles alone long enough was were things got tricky. Needless to say it was all about timing, in that Lilith in her human form showed Charles a friendless that few had and lured him away to a place which only her and Reaf knew about. For Reaf blocking Pitou’s ability to find Charles was easy, but what resulted afterwards was a game of chase in which Pitou rampaged after the other demon, pushing its body almost to the point of death to try and get to Reaf. Who in turn had to use all its magic and cunning to keep from being touched by the other, or else everything would be ruined and Lilith destroyed by Pitou’s rage. By the next day though it was too late… as both demons felt the moment that Charles obtained a third guardian. For Pitou though, the day became one of relief as it discovered that despite what it thought Reaf’s plans were, his master did not abandon nor disown him. In fact Charles greeted Pitou with the same hug he did every morning completely ignoring the fact he had woken up tangled up with someone, the young man simply slung an arm over the cat like creatures shoulder and guided it down to the labs to continue the day’s work.
That was exactly what each day became to Charles from that moment on, wither it was developing a new drug in the labs with Pitou, or observing whatever experiment the demon was conducting. Monitoring his company’s growth from afar and interfering when he felt that it was necessary, either by his own actions or the acts of espionage which he would have carried out by Reaf and Lilith. The money that he has started to rake in has become only a means to end for Charles, who simply continues to use to see what strings he can pluck to cause more ripples like those that brought his guardians to his side or to see exactly what other things are out there that normal men would never dare mess with. His reasons for coming to the school acting like a normal student of the place is simply to access the potential threat that it might bring about to his guardians, having found about it through hints and rumors. Also to see what other creatures gathered at such a place, and so under the slight influence of his fiends he went to the school to find out what went on their. Appearance:
One thing is clear and upfront about the moment that anyone meets him… Charles Castex is not all there. While not insane enough that he cannot function in normal society it is quite clear events in Charles past broke him beyond fixing, or he was simply born that way and his life made things worse. In the end this is actually one of the more pleasant things about him, because even though it means you get a person who at times acts psychotic… most of the time he is a very playful and curious creature. Spending most of his time between three separate states Charles is normally quite lucid and remarkably brilliant even if he has a habit of speak to fast when he starts talking an idea in earnest, going so far as to ignore who he is talking to and simply continue speaking like they are not even there. When he is not like this he is, either very childlike and seemly distracted by the simplest things, and tends to run to hide behind Pitou whenever the slightest thing threatens him. The other state is that of a cold and calculated personality that borderlines on sociopathic and psychotic tendencies. He has been known to join Pitou in his experiments while he is like this.
Mostly he is kept in his middle state by the presence of one of his three guardians. Just having one of them nearby seems to magically keep his mind at peace. With extended time apart from all three he starts to slowly crack, and the two outward extremes of his personality become more prevalent. This is usually after a period of about 24 hours that this starts to happen, and they have not tested what happens after 72 hours. Charles has also been unable to determine is the distance, because repeated experiments have yielded different results every time. This is the reason that Charles tends to encourage Pitou’s clingy nature even if it subconsciously… simply because he is scared of what will happen if the demon he whose face he trust the most is not around. This is despite the fact that to any outside observer of the relationship Pitou himself is grooming an addictive personality in Charles... wither this be through some chemical that the demon is giving his master or it simply has to do with the energy of his presence is unknown. Charles himself tends to be very confrontational about the idea, towards anyone who suggest it. Such outburst of anger normally get a fiendish chuckle from Pitou.
Despite being only in his late twenties Charles has earned several degrees in biology, chemistry, religion, computer sciences, and has learned multiple languages. The years had left him with nothing, but time on his hand as well as the ability to share information with his guardian’s telepathically. The fact that Pitou could attend one class under the illusion of being Charles and Charles actually be in another meant that he could learn more in a shorter amount of time as well retain most of what he had learned. Since any answer he wanted was simply a mental message away. With this and Pitou’s human testing and Lilith and Reaf’s intervention against those who tried to block their approval Charles invented medications that made him a millionaire overnight. Though he was careful to quickly retreat into the shadows, and let the board run the company that his money soon opened, because it’s only purpose to him to was keep him in his home that allowed him to entertain his hellish friends. He has also taken to the habit of dressing in a very eccentric manner, the last few times that he has to been to board meetings he always wore Renaissance style clothing favoring either red or purple suits, black capes, white frilled undershirts, bow ties, cummerbunds, and top hats in different states of decay. He also now carries around a black cane with a gold dragon's head on one end, and a circular symbol stamped in gold on the other. There is a sword inside the cane and the symbol on bottom carries holy magic, so that Charles can remind Reaf to behave whenever he needs to since she travels inside of his shadow.Sexual Orientation:
