Rajmund likes to think of himself as a simple guy with simple -- albeit expensive -- tastes. As such, he has a notably low threshold for what he's willing to do if the price is right. Money trumps everything, but he'll be swayed by sex and power in a pinch. His saving grace to such a lack of ethical code is an intense need to have allegiance and loyalty to some one or some thing. Since politics and influence do not interest him, he is much happier acting as a hand to another's mind. That is not to imply Rajmund is not intelligent -- quite the opposite, which leads to a notable selectivity in who earns his allegiance.
Despite Rajmund's exposure to diversity, he is ultimately largely xenophobic, and prefers the comfort of structured, expected ideals and life-styles. He is determined and violent, though manages to be charming when appropriate in a rugged, austere sort of way. His ability to fight, react, and stay strong is everything to him, and he devotes countless hours of his life towards those goals. Not coincidentally, he is not facing his fast-approaching 40's gracefully. Given his natural penchant for fast cars, expensive baubles, and adrenaline-rushes, however, it would be near-impossible to separate evidence of a mid-life crises from his normal behavior.
His arrogance and cocky attitude has lead him to violence before, and surely will once again unless kept in check by his taste for structure and hierarchy. It is unlikely he will ever be found without at least two to three weapons on his person or within immediate reach.History:
Rajmund Król was born in 1976 at St. Mary's Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. His mother, Lilijana, and his father, Valentyn, emigrated from Poland during Edward Gierek's relaxed political regime and settled in the neighborhood of Greenpoint like many of their contemporaries. Rajmund was the oldest of three siblings; his sister Aleska was born in 1978, and his brother Nathan in 1981. Life in the Król household at the time of Rajmund's birth was an endless strain between the appreciation the Król's had for the liberties they saw America providing them, and their view that much of the country was sick with decadent excess. This excess, according to them, only lead to immorality and ultimately nihilism. Rajmund had yet to reach his teens when he came to the conclusion that, while he respected his parent's opinions, the road of excess was more than worth the corrupt baggage that might be collected along the way.
No church celebrated the glory of this excess better than that of Wall Street, a short city bus ride away for the youth. He was instantly captivated by the wealthy men -- their suits, watches, and other trappings of power. He, too, wanted these trappings. Rajmund, however, lacked both the ambition and aptitude to claw his way up into the higher echelons of schooling -- not that there was much of a chance that a boy among a sea of other poor Polish immigrant children would receive much academic recognition, anyway. Rajmund did manage another sort of recognition as teenage years took hold -- that of a gifted, if hot-headed and unfocused athlete, whom was also known among his peers as an abhorrent bully.
It was a friend and confident of Valentyn's that eventually suggested that they reign in their eldest boy with military schooling. The often xenophobic Króls took to the idea surprisingly well, secretly hoping that it would cull their boy's growing materialism in addition to his behavioral issues. While it was a strain financially, Rajmund's mother ultimately chose to work as a waitress to support the tuition, following Rajmund suspension for beating up a smaller, intellectually gifted boy in his class.
The military boarding academy, New York Military Academy at Cornwell-on-Hudson, was a full hour away from from the boy's home, as well as his beloved Wall Street. Between the distance and strict rule enforcement, Rajmund eventually did become proficient in academics, and demonstrated remarkable gifts for athletics, particularly boxing. Within a matter of years he had moved from largely being considered a black sheep of the family, to being a subject of noble pride. A school record once seemingly irrecoverably blemished with aggressive, arrogant behavior was replaced with a wall full of boxing trophies and a transcript full of high marks.
Despite his change of heart, there still was a little surprise within the family when Rajmund announced his post-graduation plans of moving to Georgia in order to prepare for an application to the Army Ranger School. While his parents were more than a little hesitant, he ultimately won their approval by stating his belief that, only by immersing himself in a world of strength and survival, would he be able to continue winning the war against his more destructive and greed-influenced impulses. The decision ultimately proved fruitful, and between intense physical training and accumulating some noteworthy college credit, Rajmund was admitted to the school, proceeded through the various phases, and finally graduated.
In the years following his induction, Rajmund would become a proud Ranger, going so far as to tattoo their tab design on his left medial tricep. He married a native Hawaiian girl he met overseas, named Lani, though from the start the relationship was fraught with fiery conflict and adulterous indiscretions on both sides.
In 2001, Rajmund's unit was instrumental in Operation Rhino, a Taliban-focused strike that was considered a strong victory for the United States during the early phases of the Afghanistan War. Despite his successful and decorated early career, Rajmund choose to become largely estranged from both his wife and blood-family, viewing them as distractions to his true calling. When his mother, Lilijana, was diagnosed and eventually succumbed to an aggressive form of breast cancer, Rajmund's familial rifts became foreseeably permanent due to his choice to return to New York only briefly for the funeral.
Rajmund continued to serve for nearly a decade until a sleepless, agitated technician by the name of Jamie Cameron approached the GI Rights Network with drafts of both a personal resignation in lieu of elimination letter, as well as an Article 138 complaint accusing Rajmund of sexual assault. While overseas, Jamie had developed an underground reputation for being a willing and enthusiastic outlet for sexual tension. While he initially welcomed Rajmund's encounters, they grew increasingly violent, filled with verbal character assassination, and eventually graduated to Rajmund forcing himself on Jamie anally, an act that he never solicited or condoned.
It was Rajmund's insistence on being candid about the situation that eventually lead the committee to dishonorably discharge him of his station. Despite informal advice otherwise, he freely admitted to making advances on Jamie, claiming that despite lack of formal consent, it was clearly welcomed. Rajmund's superiors did not see things in similar terms. In the aftermath of the discharge, Rajmund's already failing marriage was completely dissolved. Not wanting to return to Georgia as a civilian. Rajmund returned to his childhood neighborhood of Greenpoint, despite his now tense and fraught family relations.
Being unable to find easy employment due to his highly particular skill set and dark record, Rajmund eventually began to act as a security guard, which often found him work at the New Jersey casinos. Like a child returning home, he instantly was once more enthralled with shows of excess -- the finely tailored suits, bejeweled golden cuff links, the scent of leather, and the casual confidence the elite had. He both hated them for having access to revenue that he did not, and idolized them as representations of power and perfection. It was that dark hunger that eventually caught the eye of some of his more unsavory employers. Soon, the salary of the security guard began to rise exponentially... along with the number of bruises, gashes, and arsenal of weapons located on Rajmund's person at any time.
He developed the reputation as a confident, deadly contractor whom would do anything for the right price. It was during the apex of this reputation that he eventually began to work for a man known as Rigel Reid through a variety of networks. Rajmund began to be more and more impressed with Rigel's understated organizational elegance, brutality, yet also his means of discretion for vitality's sake. Eventually, hungering for the structure, hierarchy, and fiscal dependability that his ranger life once provided him, Rajmund determined that he would earn a more permanent position with Reid... or, at least one that would less likely end with his own employer considering him "loose ends" that needed tying.
Rajmund saw his opportunity to once again have the comfort of a position among rank and file in the form of the Twell's group attacks on June 25, 2015. He had heard the attack and recovery of Reid was swift -- so swift that there was unfinished business in the form of living, breathing attackers to tend to. While it burned some of his other contacts to locate them, Rajmund was determined to deliver New York's brand of punishing justice to the group.
He approached the man he knew closest to Reid sometime later, several bags nearby of tarp, gore, and heads of those who had thus far managed to flee Reid's iron grasp. With his disarmingly coy, almost charming smirk and long-lost, yet swiftly returning Brooklyn accent, Rajmund simply stated. "Hey, do me a solid: contact your boss, tell him I have... well, let's call it a "résumé'" with me I want him to look over."Kiss and tell. . .Sexuality:
Complicated -- aren't they all? He has had relationships and sexual encounters with, what he has always believed to be, CIS-Women before. He has had sexual encounters with, what he has always believed to be, CIS-Men before. Sex with the CIS-women have been more varied in terms of setting and emotions. With CIS-Men power has always been intrinsically linked to the pleasure of it (or, at least so Rajmund liked to believe;) the thrill is in the domination and over-powering of other men.Role Preference:
Rajmund has not bottomed, nor simply taken the submissive role, to another man in a sexual setting before. He is definitely more dominant with women as well, but has let them take charge in a sort of "humoring them", only-in-the-bedroom sort of manner before.Sexual On's:
Rajmund is neither particularly inventive in the bedroom, nor is he a particularly gentle or generous lover. He likes getting head -- a lot. If it ends in a facial, even better. Rough sex is a definite, often times even if his partner is hoping for something a bit more subdued. Vaginal and giving anal are also, obviously, very welcome as far as he is concerned. He enjoys pulling long hair, face-slapping, and general degradation. Bonus points if it already started 'cheap' before the degrading sex even happens -- a one night stand, a prostitute, a club pick-up in the back alley, etc. Sexual Off's:
The expectation that he is going to reciprocate oral, man or woman. Too much romance or emotion in sex. He does not respond well to most gestures of gender fluidity or ambiguity. He definitely is not currently fond of the idea of anything (including a finger,) going up his ass. Doing so might, in fact, provoke violence on his part.Are you willing to allow your character to participate in non-consensual acts?
I consent to my character either receiving or instigating non-consensual acts, provided that it is deemed "true to his character" for him to be making any action that he is a part of.Are you willing to allow your character to participate in acts outside of their comfort zone?
I am definitely willing for my character to participate in an act outside of his comfort zone. He does have a maddeningly narrow scope of sexuality, after all. It should be noted he does have a history of an aggressive and violent temperament, so talking to me out of character before-hand may be advisable so we can work out how the following actions will unfold.Anything Else?
Native Languages: English, Polish. He knows enough Russian to get by in a pinch. Rajmund has two siblings, a sister living in Greenpoint with his Father, and a brother in Washington, DC. He is currently estranged from his family.Developing Relationships. . .Adlai Keaton Tracey
- Rajmund has been quite taken with the man known on the streets as Rigel Reid. He is actively courting a business relationship with him, longing for a more reliable, hierarchical structure than his employment currently provides.
