Julius Eugen "Silver Wraith" von Schwarzthal
is a young man who conceals countless deceits beneath his smiling, if often arrogant attitude. He was originally born into an Imperial noble family of some wealth, holding a duchy, though declining in influence. Not much is known about his past, save that he was a spy, assassin and soldier who defected to Gallia just over a year before the war began, though like with many things about him, that part itself is shrouded in rumour. Earlier in his life, he graduated with honours at an Imperial Military Academy, being renowned for his skill with a gun and his duelling prowess, relying more on intelligence and speed than strength or toughness.
At some point his family acquired some powerful enemies, including a manipulative Imperial Princess. Though this part of his life is particularly murky, Julius survived under suspicious circumstances, despite the disappearance of his mother and older brother, and the public execution of his father after he was implicated in a plot against the emperor, and charged with high treason. What exactly happened to Julius is unknown to most, though it irrevocably changed his personality and view of the world.
Though still not exactly trusted due to his Imperial origins, and his sometimes unstable mindset, his skills are nonetheless recognised as being valuable indeed. Some of the higher ups in the Gallian military see him as a useful if temperamental asset, that will prove useful even if he is to be disposed of. For now, though, he needs to properly prove his loyalty to the country he now serves, as well as his ability to follow orders from troublesome commanders, among other things.
He is prideful, ruthless, bloodthirsty and often arrogant, though he can often change his apparent outside personality as needed. Nonetheless, beneath that lies further complications, with two split personalities contending from time to time. Usually his actions are often calculated and well-thought out, and he is highly perceptive. At other times, he can be perhaps too quick to act. His usual pride can be met at times with an insecure shyness, an obsession, fear and desire to be recognised by those he sees as stronger than himself.
His love for battle can even seems masochistic, licking his own blood and stopping to recognise the pain in his body to further revel in the excitement of battle, though such tendencies may be also relegated to areas other than battle. When it comes to those who've proven their superiority, Julius is more than respectful and eager to obey. He never hesitates to take the shot and may seem inhuman in many circumstances. At times his personality can vary; at some moments, mockingly polite, manipulative and deceitful, at another, seemingly honest, compassionate, honourable and caring. He possesses both a superiority complex and an inferiority complex, shown in his disgust when being forced to fight a battle he has become bored of, despite his overall love for battle.
He enjoys fighting, especially against opponents he deems worthy, and challenging. He takes pleasure in those who possess overwhelming power, those who can eradicate him from existence in a single strike. His death is of minor importance in such a situation, though usually he wouldn't consider such a possibility. As long as the opponent can bring him the pleasures of war, new experiences and knowledge, nothing else matters. Another part of him breaks down when cornered or overpowered, and falls into a strange mixture of joy and despair. He believes honesty to be a naive trait held by the foolish, and trusts no one, accordingly. Even when outnumbered, he remains composed- though sometimes overenthusiastic, adaptable, and calculating, quickly able to adjust to new developments and change his battle tactics. Despite his mental instability, he can rein it in at times, and the more extreme parts take a bit of goading to bring about. On another note, he is a Yggdist with a low opinion of Darcsen.Class:
Average"Truly, how exciting..." -- Silver Wraith
Quick, agile, skilled in both blade and gun, as shown by his ability at sniping and his expertise with a sword attached to his left arm, though not quite as much in unarmed combat. Quite knowledgeable and intelligent. Good at subterfuge, intrigue and stuff like that/spy/assassin type stuff.Weaknesses:
Physically weak and not particularly tough, arrogant and overconfident, sometimes rash and prone to unnecessarily seeking out conflict regardless of the danger at hand. Mentally unstable. Due to his origins, he is viewed suspiciously by other team mates. On another note, he gets drunk fairly easily. Lacks faith in others, and is more than likely to discard others underfoot if he sees them as getting in his way.
