Servant- Alphonse Elric
Jake Roads Select Your Servant:
Alphonse Elric, from the anime Full Metal Alchemist/Full Metal Alchamist Brotherhood.
(Note, he has a sharp childish pitch to his voice, this is only due to his soul being transmuted into his armor from a young age. He is in fact in his teen years by the end of FMA, I believe. And for the sake of site rules he shall be bumped to 17. As he does not have a human body, his imagery does not change this allotted time frame between anime and his inclusion into the mmo. )Select Your Servant's Powers:
Alphonse uses Alchamy, much like in his own universe. But is allotted his brothers ability, to no longer require a transmutation circle. This is both something beneficial, and disheartening for him.Appearance/Style Description:
He will start the role play looking as he should, in the above pictures. But later on after aquaring gear and power, he will look like this.Personality:
Alphonse:In many ways, Alphonse's calm and passive disposition exists as a foil to his older brother's more abrasive personality. Al is kindhearted, notably compassionate and patient almost to a fault, acting often out of protective selflessness for his loved ones, new friends and sometimes toward even his enemies (Scar is a particular example). Having had his psychological growth stunted at the age of ten due to loss of his physical body, Alphonse retains a childlike purity in the face of all his encountered horrors; however, despite his age, he has always displayed a significantly higher level of maturity than Edward. Though Al is as passionate as his brother, he has remarked that his anger takes longer to spark and jokes that he is always beaten to the punch by Edward's outbursts. On the other hand, Al's heart does contain some darkness born from the tragedies of his life. Plagued with insecurities about his own uncertain existence inside a suit of armor, Al craves the human warmth of his former life in desperate silence, fears that he will never again know closeness, and is sometimes overwhelmed by the suspicion that he himself is not human;
Jake: A naturally curious and adventuress sort, he likes lore and knowledge. So he try's to collect it in his own little journal. While he is out going and friendly, He can also be quite shy given the proper set of circumstances. A romantic at heart, with perversion to boot, ever seeking yet shying away from women he desires. This makes him easy to tease, but also easy to lead on. And given the proper circumstances he is just as liable to be assertive with a women as he is to apologize for seeing her panties. He has no worries about his current set of circumstances, this is admirable to some and odd to others.Master - History:
Is a twenty year old nerd, who on his off time from work played video games as one of his favorite escapes from the harshness of reality. He on his off time learned to play the guitar, but that's as far as he had gone on hobbies. He went to college aspiring to be a historian, but all that changed when he had joined a new exciting MMO. Heroes and Servants. Now he travels with his Servant Alphonse, not seeking to escape but to embrace this new life. Sure, he would like to leave. But with the constant threat of death, and the harsh reality no one may ever return to the real world. He chose to count his lucky stars, except where he was, and make the best of his situation.Current Situation:
They tend to be the adventures type, not exactly fighting on the front line. But constantly traveling. They make decent in game gold and rewards by Alphonse using alchemy for repairs or odd jobs and Jacob playing his guitar in town and in pubs as a traveling Minstrel of sorts. Though it is only enough to scrape on by with a hermit life style.Servant - Weapons:
With Alchamy Alphonse can make an assortment of weopons if he wanted to. But typically he arm's himself with a giant stone mace he transfuses from the earth's stones and metals. Much in the same way his brother does.Servant - Strengths:
1: Tolerance to pain: He can not feel any physical touch, therefor the threat of pain or physical damage does not scare him, it will to a certain point but only if it is the possibility or outcome of severe cosmetic damage to his vessel. 2: Strong: He is a hulking suit of steel. Nuff said. 3: Peoples person: People tend to like him, especially children. People place their trust in Al often, especialy since it is trust well placed. A true confident, for any ones burden or time. 4: Endurance: He needs not sleep, food, warmth, anything. The perfect unrelenting fighter. 5: Alchemy: Aside from combat, he can use alchemy for general uses, repairs, making campfires a breeze. Servant - Weaknesses:
Alphonse is a kind soul, ever willing to forgive his enemies or spare their lives. Even that of the lives of animal or beast. This is a extreme personality weakness he faces when combating a foe. Aside from this, he has an "achiles heel." He may be able to repair from much of the superficial damage done to him, but any amount of change, damage, or fiddling with the blood seal within his armor will kill him. No not his armor, his very soul. All it takes is a crack, a scratch, the smudge of an enemies thumb and Alphonse is no more. His fate? No one knows what happens when a blood seal is tampered with or ruined. That's why it is especially terrifying for Al.
