Here's my first character; I plan on making another, more twisted one later if this one gets accepted.
Name: Marcus Van
Marital Status: Single
Stats: 6'2" 230 lbs.
Appearance: Ignore the old-school weapons and focus on the clothing and hair
Likes: God, women, the sanctity of marriage
Dislikes: Rapists, atheists, liberals/governments (he views them as the same)
Player Likes: Just see my roleplay page, but I doubt that it'll come up much with THIS guy
Personality: Slightly crazy, Marcus is kind and gentle enough, though when he sees something he disagrees with, he'll start quoting Bible verses while smashing someone in the face. An innocent child one minute, a murderous monster the next.
History: Marcus was born of the union of a teenage girl and her rapist. Rather than abort the child, the girl gave birth, and then sent into a Puritan orphanage, often coming to see the boy in his early years to make sure he was being well looked after. Marcus has few memories of his mother; just that she 'was beautiful, and cared'.
The pastor, however, made in known in uncertain terms that Marcus was the union of a child and a demon, and thus was born far more sinful then others. So, he told Marcus, he must lead a far more pure life than others. Marcus took this to heart, dedicated his life to the Puritan Church, and became known as a kindly, if slightly off his rocker, traveling preacher.
However, he began to notice violent tendencies within himself. Self-flagellation could only do so much, so he enrolled in a kickboxing club to help ease out his aggression. While it wasn't entirely successful, it did take off enough of the sting that he could trust himself around people.
When the Breeding Laws hit, Marcus saw them for what they were; turning men into monsters, and giving monsters an excuse to act out on their desires. "Laws without morality must be broken!!!"
So Marcus has gone on to preach and denounce the law, saying it was the duty handed down by God Himself to defend any woman being violated for the sake of 'breeding', and that anyone who stood by and did nothing was 'as guilty as the rapists themselves'. Part of the reason he did this was because he truly believed what he said. But the other reason was a paper-thin shield to hide behind when he noticed that he still had sexual cravings...
Marcus is afraid to get himself tested, afraid of the power that would be handed to him. Most importantly, Marcus is afraid to be around a woman alone. He doesn't know how much longer he can help himself...
