Okay! So a slight change in plans, went from water to fire is all~
Rave.Story Book Title/Fable:
Hercules.Character Name: Hades.Age:
Presumenly Infinite. Would resemble an adult male in his thirties.Face Claim:
Hades stands at a towering 6 feet and five inches, high above most men and gods he'd looked down beneath. Oh the irony, to have the height to look down yet being cast where you must look up to see anyone. Anyone who wasn't dead, anyway. His hair is often subject to change, and while he prefers to keep it long, in times of stress or war he would often cut it off completely. It's length was always at his control. His physique is built and toned as a Greek God's own, which in this case is quite literal. Muscles line his body, making him towering and strong. Scars do not touch him, yet his skin is tanned significantly from the fire and ashes of the Underworld in which he resides. He forever smells of a light incense, a smokey scent about him carried up from the belly of the earth. Other Notable Features:
The mark of the Gods is branded in the middle of his back, in what humans would resemble to a tattoo. It takes the shape of the Helm of Darkness in a circle of runes, Hades' weapon of choice as opposed to his brothers' Lightning Bolt and Trident.Likes (non sexual):
Opportunity. Power. Control. The Subservient. Dislikes (non-sexual):
Weakness. All other Gods. HERCULES!!! (but seriously, also people who challenge his rule).Personality of Character - in story:
Hades falls victim to his own poor choice of help, and from that moment forward he is stuck in an infinite loop of misfortune. Cunning and Manipulative, Hades preforms the greatest heist of all time, and sets himself up for the greatest coup of all time to follow. By consulting with the Oracles, he found the truth behind his future, how a son of his own brother would bring an end to his dreams of ruling and power. Cast aside to the belly of the underworld by his own brothers, he forms a plan to take revenge, and almost succeeds...if it only wasn't for the incredibly dimwitted Pain and Panic. Having put trust in these demonic servants, they miraculously fail him time and time again, beginning with failing to render Hercules completely mortal. As such, upon discovery he turns to seduction and tries to break the young Hero's heart in order to leave him demotivated. He comes quite close to succeeding, finally freeing the Titans while exploiting the Hero's moments of weakness. To further sympathize with Hades' unfortunate surrounding, said Titans turn out to be also extremely dimwitted and march in the opposite direction of where they were told to go.
After a very brief success, a taste of power in enslaving the Gods, he is beaten by the overly typical, stereotypical plot-line where Hercules rises upon his Pegaus and throws him to the very souls he governs. In an endless torture he is forced to repeat this loop, barely touching his desires before being cast down into the depths of his very own hell, deemed to repeat himself till the end of the time, or until his story is forgotten.Personality of Character - out of story:
Hades still maintains his cunning and manipulative ways, and his strong physique remains. However, he is robbed of the entirety of his power, and as such his ego has taken quite a blow. The very mortals he used and toyed with this entire time had become his kin, and he was one of them, leaving him with a bitter taste in his mouth. He has quite a sense of entitlement still, having spent an infinite amount of time as a God, and developing Godly habits such as dominance and leadership, as-well as a ruling aura about him. Hades is not evil to his core, for out of his story his sought after Gods and pain in the ass Hercules are no where to be found, and as such he has no one to stop him. Ironically, he has no powers to speak of, so despite his opposition's absence he finds his hands tied. He constantly hungers to find a way to regain his power, with thoughts of conquest still lingering, be it for his old world or this new one.The day the world changed:There he was again. At the very height of his power. The Gods were in their chains, marching upon the clouds shackled to one another and forced to bow before him. His revenge the sweetest of tastes, finally marching those hypocrites away from their thrones after they cast him down to beneath the earth while they ruled from their clouds. So close, until once again the story favors the hero, and falls into the archetype of every predictable and self-serving story there was and will be. The hero, Hercules, comes to predictably 'save the day' and cast Hades down to the river Styx, where the very dead he imprisons suck his soul and godly powers out of him. Excruciating pain follows, until it all goes blank and everything repeats itself. Forever and ever, this pattern remained. An endless loop of disappointment and bitterness for the God, until one day...it was no more.
A door opened that wasn't there before, one that the God could not refuse stepping through. It was a way out, a way out of the endless cycle of broken dreams. Stepping through the portal doors and finding himself within Faircastle, he had finally found himself in a place where a day did not repeat itself. Where at the end of it, he did not suffer nor wake up to repeat the events of the previous. Yet such a thing came at a terrible price. In this world, while he was free, he was also robbed. His powers, his Godliness and Immortality were as gone as the loop that shackled his days. It was a terrible price to pay for what he wanted, for what he could be, and yet there was no way back. He looked and searched, yet could not find a way to return the powers that belonged to him. Such were his goals from that day forward, to regain what was lost while leaving behind the endless cycle of misery.
Intelligent and cunning, he would quickly go to the very library that caused all of this, and began to educate himself about the fairytales that spawned the heroes, damsels, and villains alike around them. He matched face to story, and printed them in his memory, for one of them may have been the key to unlocking what he wants. At least, from what he could tell, these other fairy tale spawns were not so incompetent. They could be well used, or allied with. Who knew, the next day held mystery and wonder for the first time in Hades' ageless life.Sexual Preference:
Heterosexual. Turn Ons :
Same as player's. (See Signature).Turn Offs:
Same as player's. (See Signature).RP Thoughts/Plans:
Hades is, above all, looking for connections. He wants to explore each character and find out what made them a fairytale, what made them special in the first place, and promptly use them afterwards. Now, he would never confess that, though his interest in others are genuine. It is plausible to say that he has suffered the endless loop of story the longest, and as such in this world, he is not 'Evil' per say, only exploitative of the world around him to use it to its fullest. He looks for a way to regain his powers, while remaining in this new world to eventually rule it.
