Still a WIP of course, but I figured I should post what I've got so peeps can see~Name:
The King (Will only answer to this, Your Highness or Sir/Sire)Age:
Homoromantic & HomosexualRole:
Usually wears expensive and stylish clothing, and is well known for his tendency to spend upwards of an hour on his appearance some mornings. Very few know that his body is covered in scars, the worst of which being a gunshot wound on his chest that barely missed his heart/lungs. Because of this, he usually wears covering garments, and uses makeup to cover the rest.
Face Claim: Boyd Holbrook - Bonus picPersonality:
The King is unstable, prone to sudden and unpredictable shifts of mood, a fact that makes his friends and his foes alike nervous. He is a man used to getting what he wants, when he wants it, even when those things are unreasonable. Being in charge of the city, with the government no longer even much of a threat, his behaviour has steadily spiraled out of control, and it is clear that he sees most of the city's inhabitants as toys, not people.
He is incredibly vain, taking great pains to keep his appearance exactly how he wants it, and he has an over inflated sense of pride and ego to go with it. Insults are often met with overreaction, only rarely does he consider someone to be worth keeping around should they find the wrong side of his temper, and even then they do not escape some sort of punishment. He is also quite secretive, keeping his past to himself, and even though he is known for certain lecherous tendencies, he rarely brings anyone to his room.
Although his vanity and mood swings might suggest otherwise, Rai is intelligent and charismatic when he wants to be, making him skilled at manipulating to get what he wants. Background:
Rai was raised in a distant but wealthy family. He rarely wanted for anything, at least anything material, but his emotional needs were far from met. His mother believed that all she needed to do was give him whatever he wanted, but never really listened to him, especially about his father. So Rai learned quickly that the only thing he could do was try to avoid his father as much as possible. The abuse was impossible to avoid, however, and was the cause of most of the scars on the man’s body.
As he grew, he found a sense of control in terrorising the house’s servants. They rarely lasted long, even with the amount they were being paid, but he didn’t care so long as he had someone to take it out on.
When his mother started getting sick, his father decided to add insult to injury, informing him that he would be left out of his will and left nothing. The resulting argument led to a fight, which led to his father pulling out a gun and shooting him in the chest. The excitement proved too much for him, however, and a heart attack led them to both be admitted into hospital.
Rai was the only one who walked back out, managing to use his charm to convince his mother to put him back in the will. He took charge of the business, smart enough to run it just as efficiently and ruthlessly as his father.
He was only 22 when his mother passed as well, leaving him the sole heir to the business. His tactics became even more vicious, taking over businesses and expanding his empire, with no care for the people he might have hurt in doing so. It wasn’t long before he realized he couldn’t get away with everything he wanted to, and even with as much money as he had, it was difficult to keep people around him for long.
So he started planning, eventually ‘renovating’ the city and hiring a number of people to help keep it under control. People couldn’t run from him, then. Of course, it was only a matter of time before he was found, but he used his wits and charm to convince the government to leave him alone, in return for taking in convicts from all over the country, the kind who were causing too much trouble, costing too much money.
He still has his hands in his family business, but by and large has outsourced the majority of the work, the ‘maintaining’ of his city taking up most of his time. Played by: SparrowhawkeKillable?:
I am willing to open up the possibility of Rai dying, but as it would be a major plot point, it would need to be discussed with the rest of the players as well.
Agender/Male (Uses It pronouns, but will answer to He)Orientation:
Caim has had dental surgery to give it a set of fangs
, along with a surgery to give it cybernetic eyes
. It also has a number of facial piercings (Nostril, bridge, snake bites & a number of helix piercings on both ears). It bears quite a large number of scars, all of which it displays quite proudly as 'trophies' from the fights it's been in.Personality:
Caim has a personality that fits both its position as a Throne and the convictions that sent it here in the first place. Some would argue that it is more animal than man, but even most predators don't tend to be as ruthless and stubborn. It is utterly fearless when he enters the city, and anyone who has been there long knows to fear its coming. It 'hunts' among the city with a fair amount of regularly, picking off those who interest it, much to the joy of the king. It kills completely without empathy, simply because it enjoys doing so.
In general, its social skills are lacking, and communication often tends to consist of grunts, growls and swearing, only becoming a little more eloquent with the King because it knows it won't get away with anything else. Background:
Caim was always one to get in trouble, in juvvie for fighting (and badly injuring those it fought with) at school. At 18 it went to proper jail for similar reasons, but when it was released it seemed it had changed for the better. It managed to get a job and hold it steadily, and even its violent urges seemed to have settled.
What they didn't know, at least until it made a mistake, was that it had become an extremely successful and prolific serial killer. It racked up a considerable body count before it finally made a mistake that led to its capture, some of which are still considered cold cases, as it was quite tight lipped upon its capture. It was thrown back into jail, maximum security this time, and eventually was shipped off to Méfiance.
It took stock of the environment quickly, and took to the unsupervised violence like a duck to water. It caught the attention of the King, and eventually gained a position as one of the Thrones. Extras:
It also has cybernetic implants to strengthen its jaw, giving him the ability to crush bone with his teeth, along with implants in its eyes and ears, enhancing its senses.Played by: SparrowhawkeKillable?:
