Name: Still unknown. Likes to be referred to by his title of Manus Dei.
Alignment: Good, although his sense of justice can be harsh at times and he has a certain guilt complex towards extremely pleasant things.
Background: This wandering Paladin is a constant daydreamer, always trying to become a better person and help others.
He is good-hearted, but not exactly outgoing. His lack of social skills can make him difficult to deal with. Although he likes reasonable suggestions, he is strong-willed, and can be very stubborn when he considers something unfair.
He is naturally gifted in some areas, and because of that, many people envied and scorned him in his early years.
He usually travels alone, like the legends of old, but his heart is bound to a handful of special people, and he will always return to them. It is said that he made an oath to those people, never to give up on life despite the hardships.
He doesn’t have a place he can call home, mostly because he feels unwelcome among his kin and because he had decided to make up for years of boredom by traveling as much as possible.
In battle, he can be ruthless, and his fury is often devastating, if not to his enemies, then to himself. He has mastered the art of the sword and developed his own unarmed technique. In his travels, he has learned all sorts of magic, but he hardly uses it, resorting to the Light instead. He tries to fight witout anger, but his fury and strength grow exponentially when someone dear to him is hurt. He hates cowards and traitors.
Personality: He is often too willing to give people a second chance, but when hurt by someone close to him, he usually feels an excruciating pain and can become very bitter for some time.
He has a very peculiar personality that makes him liked by a few, despised by the majority and hated by some. His overdeveloped sense of honor can make it tough for him to approach people who do things he wouldn’t dare to.
He has a hard time trusting people, and he usually keeps his feelings to himself. However, he he fails miserably in hiding those feelings from a few people. Some say that he wears his heart on his sleeve. He can be desperately in love with a girl, but never have the courage to tell her, but if he hates someone, he will show it clearly. If he likes someone, he will try to be friendly and helpful, sometimes even sweet, but he always tries to keep that a secret.
He often hides his heart under a shell of bitterness, and because of that he is difficult to approach. He often feels lonely, and is constantly dwelling on the past, remembering his mistakes and the friends he lost. He is always afraid of making a mistake that will upset his friends and drive them away.
He is usually quiet, mostly because he feels he has nothing interesting to say, or because he’s afraid his words will be misunderstood.
He is modest, and doesn’t stand vanity. For him, being clean is enough, and he hates combing his hair or using any kind of fragrances. He hates the spotlight and despises fame, feeling much more satisfied by fulfilling his duties.
When he’s in the presence of one of his few friends, his true side surfaces. He can be very sweet and caring, and will do anything to help a friend. Despite his lonely life, he longs to feel someone close to him. The bitter and harsh shell completely melts away, revealing a loyal friend who wants to make people happy.
When betrayed or abandoned by a friend, he implodes. He rages at himself and everything around him and then breaks down and dwells on it for years on end. He often looks down on himself and needs some encouragement now and then.
Description: He usually wears a white full plate armor with a red cross on its chestplate, and white gauntlets, as well as a red cape and a white helm with a black visor and a wide red plume. He carries a longsword and a massive-looking shield, marked with a cross and the Alpha and Omega symbols.
He seems obsessed in hiding his face, which leads some to think that he is either insanely shy or horribly looking. He eats and sleeps with his whole armor on, since the jaw protection of his helmet can be opened to let him eat.
He carries a golden ring with a strange seal, with a hand with a cross on its palm, with a golden sun symbol behind. This ring symbolizes his title.
Other than that, he is tall and seems to have a slim shape, although the armor makes that an uncertainty.
Only two people have seen his true face so far, and his real name is also a mystery to all but them. He seems to use the mask to hide from the rest of the world.
Equipment: See description + A strange wrist device that doubles out as a communicator, portable supercomputer, matter converter and nanobot dispenser.
Skills: He loves nature and most animals, and in fact he finds it easier to get along with them than with people. His years of sufering have made him fearless and immune to any form of control, and he has also learned to shield his mind. Although he’s no Hulk, he has enough strength to go around and kick some butts when the time is right. By focusing his rage, he can be almost unstoppable, until of course he is exausthed and needs to take a break. Technology fascinates him, and he can use it in surprising ways, when he’s not playing Freedom Fighters, that is.
His agility is reasonable. Even though he had some coordination problems as a child, they’re completely gone, and he can move swiftly and silently if the need arises.
He doesn’t like violence, and if his enemy isn’t actually evil, he’ll likely try to knock it out without excessively hurting it.
He is an avid reader, interested in many different areas, and an inventor in his free time.
Powers: He can call upon the Light in many different ways, channel energy through his body, armor and blade. He possesses elemental magic, but hardly uses it. He can call upon nature’s wrath to strike down his foes, and sometimes the heavens’ fury is at his command. He also possesses latent powers that are revealed at an irregular rate, and he is still ignoarnt of many of them.
Weaknesses: He has a very soft heart, making him vulnerable to betrayal. He is easily depressed, constantly doubts his abilities and is often very nervous, due to his poor social skills. His powers can be very difficult to control when he’s enraged, and he cares so much for certain people he is capable of doing something completely irrational to protect them. He doesn’t care much for his well-being, and is more than eager to sacrifice himself for others.
He is also VERY shy, and some innuendos or particular scenes still manage to make him blow a fuse and start shivering and babbling like an idiot (no nosebleeds though). He’s still shy around girls and feels uncomfortable when people actually LIKE him.
1- I hope my character acts accordingly to his relationship with the others.
2- Try not to get too mushy, at least without consulting me.
3- My face will remain hidden as long as I wish. OK?
4- Make it funny, if possible, but as you said, without disrespecting anyone.
Is this enough, Wil?
Oh, one more thing: I am sympathetic towards Val, but try to hide it, I’m fond of Weiila, neutral towards most people, since I don’t know them yet, and I intentionally avoid contact with Eva for the time being.
