1 Amatus H. Laertes on 25/06/17, 09:34 pm

Name: [ Amatus H. Laertes ]
Country Affiliation: [ Reim ]
Race: [ Halfling ] [ Fanalis (Dom) ] [ Human (Res) ]
Tier: [ D-tier ] [ Novice ]
Class: [ Warrior ]
Age + Birthdate: [ 18 years-old ] [ January 15th ]
Gender: [ Male ]
Sexuality: [ Heterosexual ]
Personality:

  • [ Social Butterfly ]
    Amatus is something of an extrovert and social butterfly; he often mingles himself into crowds and he enjoys being the center of attention. By using a likeable front, asserting himself into the situation, and making himself over the crowd, Amatus is a memorable person with a loud soul.
  • [ Arrogance ]
    Amatus knows that he’s something, and he makes sure that others know it too. While he won’t shove it straight into someone’s face since he knows how rude it is, there’s always a certain air of conceit and swagger that the Halfling carries about him. It worsens during battles, in which he enjoys to show himself off and taunt his opponents.
  • [ Courteousness ]
    Amatus’ aunt, Carina, was sure to hammer in good manners and politeness into the boy. Even without her, Amatus exerts a general air of pleasantness, and he’s always certain to act polite even if he doesn’t feel like it. You attract flies with honey, not vinegar, after all.
  • [ Callous ]
    While Amatus isn’t outright apathetic to the woes of the world, he doesn’t openly worry about others and their problems. He has his own stuff he has to wade through, and in his own words, “he doesn’t have the time to give a crap”. While this obviously doesn’t extend to his actual friends, it’s hard to actually squeeze concern out of him for others.
  • [ Loyalty ]
    Once someone has became an actual friend of Amatus, they stay that way in the man’s heart. They earn his respect, his trust, and his loyalty. Despite his rather questionable morals, a friend of the Halfling can be reassured that their back will be covered no matter the situation.
  • [ Self-Indulgence ]
    It’s hard for Amatus to say no to something he wants, be it food, alcohol, a good time, or to just satisfy his own selfish curiosity. He enjoys activities that he really shouldn’t, but he can’t help but reward himself. It goes hand in hand with his hubris and confidence, and it’s something that probably won’t change about the man for some time. He tries not to show it a lot, but he can be licentiousness when he selfishly persues his desires.
  • [ Fortitude ]
    While he isn’t an outright tank, and like everyone Amatus can be knocked down, but it’s just less frequent. He’s strong of mind and heart, and he doesn’t take much to heart. He’s capable of facing hardship with optimism and courage.
  • [ Sexual ]
    While Amatus certainly keeps a lid on how lewd and  he acts around others, it’s definitely under all of his swagger and confidence. He can be rather indecent when he lets himself, and when the straps come off he can be rather lewd and salacious.

Amatus is a man who seeks pleasure in life, be it through alcohol, fighting, partying, sex, and whatever else comes to mind. He doesn’t care much for how others see him as long as he stays popular. He doesn’t have a big group of friends, and instead skates around other cliques, which is more than fine for the man. And despite his rather questionable morality, anyone who manages to actually befriend Amatus all say that he’s a loyal person. He sticks through his companion through thick and thin, and he isn’t one to run away. He’s a strong person in mind, heart, and soul, it’s just that he just lets himself lavish himself way too much.
When it comes to his surroundings, Amatus always walks with a sense of swagger. He treats himself as if he’s something important, but he’s careful to not overdo it and come off as too arrogant. He keeps an eye on how people react to him since his popularity is a careful subject to the Halfling.
While Amatus doesn’t treat others as if he’s some sort of king and that they’re his peasants, he still acts as if he’s a tad better than them. Though, he makes sure to act humorous when he does, and Amatus is always on the watch to ensure that he’s meeting at least a somewhat positive crowd.
Likes:

  • [ Fighting ]
    Amatus is an adrenaline junkie, and there’s not a lot of activities that are more enjoyable than fighting for the Fanalis. He’s not sure if it’s something in his blood or if it’s just him, but the rush that comes in combat is just pure fun for him.
  • [ Partying ]
    Second only to fighting, Amatus is an extrovert who enjoys partying. If he’s not at the coliseum or practicing his abilities, then he’s most likely at some sort of event that includes booze, music, and dancing. Something about the mood, food, and general activity entices Amatus, and he can’t help himself but attend. Even if the party starts out on the low side, it’s not surprising to those who know him that he’ll raise the roof up on it.
  • [ Strolls ]
    There's nothing all too exciting about going on a walk, yet Amatus loves going on them. It's a time away from the rush of his life, and it's enjoyable to just take a step back from everything to smell the flowers.
  • [ Birds ]
    Amatus just love birds, from their cute appearances to the way they can soar far in the sky. He himself is terrified of heights, though he loves imagining feeling the wind in his hair and the touch of a cloud.

Dislikes:

  • [ Sweets ]
    There’s nothing much to say other than Amatus just doesn’t like a sugary, sweet taste. While it’s not off putting for him to eat some fruits and desserts, it’s not false to say he usually skips the both of them.
  • [ Insects ]
    They're just plain, outright freaky. If he sees one he'll squash it, be it a cockroach to an ant. He doesn't like any sort of bug or insect, and anything that can fly is the worst for the Fanalis.
  • [ Silence ]
    Something about just sitting in the quiet is maddening to Amatus. He loves to read, but he can't handle staying in a library due to their no-noise policy.
  • [ Gambling ]
    While gambling isn't outright too immoral for Amatus, it's just too boring of an activity for the man. It's just 90% luck with 10% skill. Though, when it comes to betting in the Coliseum, that's more his style.

Aspirations:

  • [ Yan: ]
    The question of what happened to his mother plagues Amatus, and one of his fundamental dreams is to find Yan. Not only would it give him a chance to see the world as he wishes to, he could finally get the answers to vital questions that her disappearance has raised.
  • [ The Coliseum: ]
    Amatus yearns for attention and respect, and one way he sees to gain them both is to become a good fighter in the coliseum. He has the arrogance to believe that he’s something special in the terms of a fighter, and plus it’s all good fun to the Fanalis-Halfling. A bonus would be if rumors of his victories could draw in Yan.
  • [ See the World: ]
    Amatus itches to get out of the city he has grew up in, and he wishes to see the rest of his world. His father doesn’t like the idea due to the fact that Fanalis are popular slave choices, but Amatus isn’t going to let that hold him back from exploring.
  • [ Live a Good Life: ]
    While it may seem a bit obvious, but Amatus wants to live as good of a life as he can. And this means indulging himself as much as possible and getting as much pleasure as he can out of life. He doesn’t want to die without any regrets, which makes sense in part to his rather “adventurous” lifestyle.

Phobias/fears:

  • [ Heights: ]
    Something about not having anything below him is too scary of a thought for the Fanalis. Stairs, cliffs, just looking out windows can make Amatus feel queasy. Whenever he thinks of heights, he imagines himself falling from some high place and becoming a pink splat on the land far below. Even stories about falling makes him feel uncomfortable.
  • [ Yan: ]
    While Amatus isn’t outright scared of his mother, he’s scared of why she disappeared and what happened to her. While he wants to find her, he doesn’t want to if it means finding a body. And even if he did find the human, he’s not all too sure if he wants to find out why she abandoned her family or to see her dead.
  • [ The Letter: ]
    It’s true that Amatus wants to discover the contents of the mysterious letter his mother wrote to him before she disappeared, but at the same time he’s scared of it. It scared his gentle father, and as with the reason why Yan disappeared, Amatus can’t know for sure if it would be beneficial if he did read the letter. Its mystery is both drawing and scary.

Face-Claim: [ Touken Ranbu ] [ Souza Samonji ]
Hair Color: [ Pink ]
Eye Color: [ Red ]
Height: [ 195 cm ] [ (6’5 ft) ]
Weight: [ 105 kg ] [ (231 lbs) ]
Appearance:
Amatus is a man of rather tall stature, and he has quite the muscular body that he likes to show off. Like the rest of his race, Amatus has the long and unique Fanalis eyelashes and red eyes. However, they're somewhat mismatched. One eye is a darker shade of red while the other is much lighter in color. Unlike other Fanalis, Amatus has pink hair that’s long enough to nearly reach his hips. Amatus usually keeps his hair tied back in a ponytail, with a small braid woven into the tail along with a bang-like fringe that covers a part of the left side of his face. Many people describe him as handsome due to his well-sculptured body and the care he puts into his appearance.
If one were to undress Amatus, they would find soft skin, marred only by faint scars along with a black-inked tattoo. The tattoo is of a profile view of a butterfly, with language-like markings, an eye and a skull within the tattoo of the butterfly. The tattoo is on his left pectoral, heading up his neck and facing his midsection.

Spoiler:

As for clothes, he mostly wears attire that matches a gladiator of Reim, along with some hints of his mother’s homeland. Amatus wears the regular Reim armor of a steel cuirass protecting his torso, shoulder plates, a metal skirt, gold ankle cuffs, and geta-esq sandals. He also wears a white obi-like sash, and a trio of blue beads: two worn around his neck and the other wrapped around his left hand. Like other Fanalis, Amatus has a silver-stud piercing under his lower lip, and he has a single, peach-colored tassel earring on his left ear that’s hidden by his hair.
When it comes to his body language, Amatus almost always carries himself with a sense of swagger and confidence. It’s easy to tell that he’s proud of himself, and there’s an air of humor around him. While one can say that he walks with a certain arrogance with him, others say that Amatus is a clear extrovert who likes to exert himself into whatever situation he’s in.

Special Features: [ Heterochromia ]
History
  • [ The Family ]
    Amatus was born to a pair of loving but troubled parents: a Human woman by the name of Yan and a Fanalis man named Leo. Yan was originally from Kou, one of the middle daughters of a prosperous family. Leo was a gladiator of the Riem coliseum who fought to support his family.
    Yan was nothing more than a pawn by her father, sent to Riem in order to marry a businessman and gain his money for her own family. In the new country, she was the enemy for her ties to Kou and simply a girl by her fiance. She was trapped between a rock and a hard place; the man she was to marry abused her for his own drunkard satisfaction, but she couldn't leave and risk the wrath of her family in Kou. It was a morose life, and Yan had nightly nightmares that tormented her. Eventually, the snapping moment came and Yan disappeared from the household and her family's repercussions. They would not hear of her for years to come. Unfortunately for Yan, her life would not improve for she would need to take on jobs to keep herself afloat.
    Meanwhile, Leo came from a poor family with parents with even poorer morals. They cared not for their brood of children, and being the oldest Leo was stuck with taking care of them. Days with their parents out of the house were better than those when the pair were home. Unsurprisingly, during Leo’s puberty, the parents took off to find a “better life without their brats”. The children, who at that point mostly saw their eldest brother as some sort of father, didn’t mind so much. It meant fewer problems, but it also meant more work for Leo. He became a gladiator when he was old enough, and it wasn't hard for the Fanalis to win due to his heritage. There were some close matches, but over the years he managed to keep his head and keep his family afloat. As his siblings aged, they all begun to leave the nest and head in their separate directions to find their way, save but for his youngest sister, Carina.
    Yan and Leo's meeting was one of coincidence, and for Amatus, luck. They met in a bar where Yan was working as a barista, but it was only after Amatus saved her from a drunkard did they begin to talk. Afterwards, they would find themselves running into each other time and time again, and eventually, Yan found herself falling for the Fanalis. Leo would never find out about the woman's past, but he knew of her haunted mind, however it wouldn't stop him from marrying her. It wasn't long after until Yan became pregnant with their first and final child. Long before he was due, the parents had decided on which name they would use depending on the name of their child: Amatus Haku if he was a boy, or just Matrona if she was a girl.
  • [ The Early Years ]
    Amatus was considered a blessing to the both of his parents; his birth brought untold joy to Yan and Leo, and they couldn’t have been happier with the jubilant child. But, it wouldn’t last long for the new mother. Her already frail mind became worse after the birth, and despite her attempts to remain positive, the dark thoughts in her mind continued to spiral worse and worse. With each passing year, she seemed to crack further under stress and trauma. She became paranoid, terrified for her family and for herself. Amatus’ 9th summer was beginning to pass when Yan disappeared, leaving behind all of her possessions and two letters. Leo struggled with coping afterwards, and the only things that kept him grounded to the earth was his son. After reading the letter addressed to him, Leo locked both away under lock and key, forbidding his son from reading the second letter that was written specifically to Yan’s child.
  • [ The Rest ]
    Amatus struggled for a long time after his mother disappeared; it impacted him deeply, and even now he still remembers almost everything about Yan. From the small details of her face to the crinkle of her eyes and the morose smile she always wore. His aunt, Carina, became more frequent in his life, taking care of him and raising him when Leo was supporting his now smaller family. Carina was a loving aunt who took good care of Amatus while never replacing his mother. Despite her busy work as a blacksmith within the town, she babied the Halfling and did her best to raise him when Leo was busy. One of the things that she had handed down to the boy was the art of smithing, something that Amatus still remembers.
    Due to the absence of his mother in his life, Amatus grew to love and idolize his father. He yearned for his attention and approval, and Amatus wanted to become a gladiator like him. But the want to discover what happened to Yan, to see if she really did abanon him, never left. For years, the Halfling would train out of sight of his family so he could become stronger, not only so he could find his mother but so he could become a fighter who rivaled even his father.

Role-Play Sample:
Jingyi jumped back, narrowly avoiding the slash of a long sword, her feet skidding across the wet grass. Her knuckles turned white as the warrior tightened her grip on her sword, her usually friendly eyes narrowed in caution as she eyed the jeering bandit in front of her.

"What's wrong, sweetie? Do you actually know how to use that sword or is it just a pretty decoration?" The man taunted, a malicious smirk on his face as Jinyi felt her face redden. Deciding that she wouldn't dignify him with an answer, she simply lunged forwards, her sword extending in a quick jab at his torso. Her opponent just managed to nimbly jump backward as he raised his own weapon, continuing to shout insults at her.

The woman simply shook her head, clearing her head of the words before raising her sword once more.  She practiced her skills for so long; she already could taste her first milestone of her mission and she wasn't about to let some thief snatch it out of her hands. With a grunt, she sidestepped another slash sent her way before bringing her own sword down in a downward arc. Jinyi didn't stop when she heard a cry of pain, but instead continued. She quickly brought her sword up, knocking aside a weak jab before kicking her leg out and knocking the bandit down.

The man easily toppled over with a grunt, and Jinyi watched quietly as he hissed quietly to himself. After she caught her breath, the woman swung her sword in front of the bandit's face, causing him to grow pale as he stared down the cool metal. "I'll give you this one chance to run away, alright?"

[*][ The Family ]
Amatus was born to a pair of loving but troubled parents: a Fanalis women by the name of Yan and a Human man named Leo. Yan was originally from Kou; a slave due to her race for a noble family whilst Gao still occupied the throne. Leo was a gladiator of the Riem coliseum who fought to support his many siblings.
Yan was nothing more than a dog; a worker that was all too replaceable. Her lineage was put to good work, with the woman constantly being pushed to do some difficult labor task. It was a morose life, and Yan had daily thoughts that were rather troubling for her. It took her some time, but she managed to sketch a plan and escape from the family. Her journey, running from Kou and into the plains was a hard one, but it was much easier than her former life. As to escape her past entirely, Yan spent a year scrounging up money doing less than reputable “guard” work before getting on a boat to Riem.
Meanwhile, Leo came from a poor family with parents with even poorer morals. They cared not for their brood of children, and being the oldest Leo was stuck with taking care of them. Days with their parents out of the house were better than those when the pair were home. Unsurprisingly, during Leo’s puberty the parents took off to find a “better life without their brats”. The children, who at that point mostly saw their eldest brother as some sort of father, didn’t mind much. It was less problems, but it meant more work for Leo. He became a gladiator when he was old enough, and luckily for him he discovered his ability to manipulate his body. There were close matches, but over the years he managed to keep his family afloat while gaining more and more reputation. As his siblings aged, they all begun to leave the house and head in their own separate directions to find their way; save but for his youngest sister, Carina.
The meeting of Yan and Leo was one of coincidence, and for Amatus, luck. Yan had just finished a shift of some job she had picked up the night before when slavers, spotting the trademark red hair and red eyes of a Fanalis, attacked her. At the same moment, Leo was returning home from another gladiator fight when he stumbled across the tumble. With his help, Yan was able to batter away her attackers but not without some wounds. Leo offered him even more assistance, allowing her to come home and treat her. And from thereon, from time to time they would run into each other in the city, and love blossomed. Leo, understanding that the Fanalis wasn’t best in mind, didn’t mind much and proposed to her anyways. They married soon after and it wasn’t long until Yan became pregnant with their first and final child. Long before she was due, the parents had decided on which name they would use depending on the name of their child: Amatus Haku if he was a boy, or just Matrona if she was a girl.
[*][ The Early Years ]
Amatus was considered a blessing to the both of his parents; his birth brought untold joy to Yan and Leo, and they couldn’t have been happier with the jubilant child. But, it wouldn’t last long for the new mother. Her already frail mind became worse after the birth, and despite her attempts to remain positive, the dark thoughts in her mind continued to spiral worse and worse. She would have never hurt her family, nor did she wish to, but there was no way that Yan could see for her to stay. Amatus’ 9th summer was beginning to pass when Yan disappeared, leaving behind all of her possessions and two letters. Leo struggled with coping afterwards, and the only things that kept him grounded to the earth was his son. After reading the letter addressed to him, Leo locked both away under lock and key, forbidding his son from reading the second letter that was written specifically to Yan’s son.
[*][ The Rest ]
Amatus struggled for a long time after his mother disappeared; it impacted the child deeply, and even now he still remembers almost everything about Yan. From the small details of her face to the crinkle of her eyes and the morose smile the Fanalis always wore. His aunt, Carina, became more frequent in his life, taking care of him and raising him when Leo was supporting his now smaller family. Carina was a loving aunt who took good care of Amatus while never replacing his mother. Despite her busy work as a blacksmith within the town, she babied the Halfling and did her best to raise him when Leo was busy. One of the things that she had handed down to the boy was the art of smithing, something that Amatus still remembers.
The Halfling spent many of his hours trying to practice fighting out of sight of Carina so he could become stronger for a journey to find his mother. Amatus hasn’t figured out how to manipulate his body as his father is capable of doing, so he has instead focus on martial arts.

[b]Role-Play Sample:[/b]
Jingyi jumped back, narrowly avoiding the slash of a long sword, her feet skidding across the wet grass. Her knuckles turned white as the warrior tightened her grip on her sword, her usually friendly eyes narrowed in caution as she eyed the jeering bandit in front of her.

"What's wrong, sweetie? Do you actually know how to use that sword or is it just a pretty decoration?" The man taunted, a malicious smirk on his face as Jinyi felt her face redden. Deciding that she wouldn't dignify him with an answer, she simply lunged forwards, her sword extending in a quick jab at his torso. Her opponent just managed to nimbly jump backward as he raised his own weapon, continuing to shout insults at her.

The woman simply shook her head, clearing her head of the words before raising her sword once more.  She practiced her skills for so long; she already could taste her first milestone of her mission and she wasn't about to let some thief snatch it out of her hands. With a grunt, she sidestepped another slash sent her way before bringing her own sword down in a downward arc. Jinyi didn't stop when she heard a cry of pain, but instead continued. She quickly brought her sword up, knocking aside a weak jab before kicking her leg out and knocking the bandit down.

The man easily toppled over with a grunt, and Jinyi watched quietly as he hissed quietly to himself. After she caught her breath, the woman swung her sword in front of the bandit's face, causing him to grow pale as he stared down the cool metal. "I'll give you this one chance to run away, alright?"[/quote]
