Weather Conditions

 

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    Silas is like the ocean. His appearance has never been at the forefront of his mind and he can't be considered attractive by any conventional means, but there is something about him that tugs others in. His eyes are too small, his nose is too big, but there is something about Silas' rough-and-tumble aura that makes him...interesting, at the very least. His chiseled jawline and noble poise certainly contribute to that, combined with the spark of wildness in his eyes. Silas has a tenacious, spontaneous ambiance often identified with the ocean, but amidst the other intrepid youth of his generation, he may as well be another face in the crowd.

    Not one to care for outward looks, it's no surprise that Silas' hair perpetually seems as if he's just rolled out of bed. He gives it just the minimum amount of care to be socially acceptable, and sometimes not even that when he doesn't have business outside. On assassination jobs, where a different style might be necessary to remain disguised, he views it as more of an impediment than anything. Sandy blonde in color, it resembles the sand beside an ocean shore. It reaches scarcely past the nape of his neck, being roughly chopped off when it grows any longer. Silas is very practical about his hair, seldom treating it as something to luxuriate.

    Overall, Silas is quite nonchalant about his image. When first meeting him, some of the keener folks may distinguish that there is something odd about him, outside his charismatic air, but others will simply pass him by. What really draws others in is his eyes. There is a glassy quality to them as if they were newly-polished sapphires. This unfocused look can be disconcerting when he is addressing someone and makes him look absent-minded when he is, in truth, absorbing everything about the situation around him. Silas's eyes have fleeting moments of clarity when they become pointed and focused, usually when he plunges himself into an activity he has a great interest in, enrapturing anyone paying close enough attention.

    Silas's eyes are his defining feature, as the shade of vivid blue he possesses is almost unnatural. As an assassin, however, he has to do his best to avoid attention and therefore has a habit of averting his eyes. Despite the hardships he's undergone through the years, Silas has always been taught to keep a natural, noble poise, which makes his lean figure seem less a result of unhealthiness but rather the end result of years of hard, purposeful training. Though Silas is by no means weak, he certainly isn't as strong as his lissomeness would suggest. Instead, he prefers to stay out of sight before striking quickly.

    Although he prefers to hide it, Silas has a slave brand on his upper left arm. It contains the sigil of his former master's house (the head of a Seviper with two daggers), but due to an injury, a scar runs through it. As such, the brand is hard to discern. The markings that notate when his service is over have also been permanent disfigured. All in all, it might even look like a decorative tattoo if someone didn't bother taking a closer glance. Despite this, Silas prefers to hide it whenever possible. He keeps his upper garments on whenever possible and is astonishingly shy about stripping in front of anyone. It is the one part of his appearance he becomes self-conscious about.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Vividly blue eyes.
  • Brand on the upper left arm with a scar through it.
Overall Personality:
    As to be expected, Silas is unused to social situations, as years of seclusion would suggest. Having never had the chance to talk with others on an equal level, he tends to mumble and stutter when addressed unexpectedly. This nervous behavior will fade over time as Silas learns to observe and mimic others' speech patterns. He rarely wastes the effort, however, and when he's not on the job, he tends to not speak at all. This quietness, accompanied by his small presence (a necessity for the job), can make him seem unnatural in others' eyes. Though social norms are usually lost on Silas, he does have a knack for knowing when he's not wanted -- and more often than not, he has a tendency for making his conversation partners uncomfortable. Silas has accepted that as simply who he is, and if he ostracizes himself further as a result, well, no one's calling him out on it.

    Silas notes everything around him, piecing together small details to form big pictures. Even when he gets that far-off, misty-eyed look, he is paying attention. It takes a lot to surprise him, but even so, he has a nervous demeanor. Silas is constantly on edge, his posture too stiff to be natural even when he's "relaxing". The smallest sounds can take his whole attention. The line between observant and paranoid is one that Silas constantly toes around, but considering the life he's led, it's to be expected. These skills have kept him alive for two decades, so Silas could care less if others judged him for jumping at a Buneary.

    Life on the streets has whittled Silas to be a fine-tuned machine. He lacks even shreds of the basic empathy most people hold, and his way of objective thinking, disconnecting himself from the situation to make the best decision, is creepy at best. Emotions hold no part in Silas's decisions -- it's all logic with him. Part of this is because of lack of contact with humanity in general. The only emotions he's seen in the past few years are anger and fear. Happiness and joy are far-off thoughts -- he knows they exist, but he doubts he deserves them yet, if ever. Silas is fine with being a machine. As long as he carries out his purpose, he stays alive, and perhaps some good may even come out of it.

    Silas has an extraordinary amount of self-control. Despite distancing himself from any positive emotions during his time as an assassin, as the oldest, he ended up taking care of whatever unlucky soul was snatched after him. He learned how to keep himself from showing emotions, staying strong even if he didn't think he could bear another night of killing. Silas simply knows what needs to be done and carries it out. Structure and organization come easy to him, and he is systematic in the execution of anything -- or anyone.

    Silas has a structured approach to everything he does, keeping with how self-disciplined he is. He has no issue making a plan and sticking to it, and as a result, he despises surprises. If he had it his way, everything would go exactly as he wished it. Of course, life has a habit of throwing curveballs, and when it does, Silas can usually manage to improvise his way out. Part of that organization, thankfully, extends to making sure he has a safe way out. Silas's organization makes him calm in stressful situations, as he has usually figured out what to do when things go to hell.

    As if he weren't already machine-like, Silas has a scary fixation on perfection. Beneath a rugged surface lies an even more scarred inside. The ex-assassin, though feeling little regret for the lives he took while under his first "teacher", knows that he is expected to atone for those losses of life. More than often, he pushes himself past his physical limits, reaching an almost unhealthy position in order to pay off his debts. Silas lacks self-confidence and initiative, constantly looking towards others for guidance. As someone who's never been tossed even a few words of praise, he tries his best to please others even when that action is detrimental to his own self. Self-confidence has always been an issue for him, and though he has realized that, he makes no attempt at "fixing" it. In Silas' eyes, it gives him more motivation to do better, be better.

    Assassination isn't always "get in, kill, get out". This simplistic mindset can easily land one in trouble. The intricacies of the art of killing are hard to master, and Silas has scraped death many times while on the job. Part of assassination lies in getting the information and successfully infiltrating the scene. Silas's observational skill and attention to detail have helped him out in this regard, and he finds impersonating others quite simple. Of course, he isn't just some Chatot who squawks back exactly what you say. Due to his lack of empathy, Silas can find it hard to get little intricacies right. His acts are rarely perfect, but they get the job done.

An unusual Rogue who goes by the alias "Gamemaster" has been confounding all Guardians who have been sent after him to stop his plans to destabilize the Guard presence in Istin. He seems to have the impeccable ability to adapt to any Guardian sent after him - he foils aggressive guardians, works around cautious and patient guardians, and traps any who try to be sneaky. What exactly is this ability that allows him to move about and plan ahead for any situation? Is he actually trying to destabilize the Guardians, or is he playing a game on them? One must be ready to adapt to any situation and be prepared for the Gamemaster to adapt to them. Stop the nefarious Gamemaster from making the Guard look bad! Figure out why he is so good at being contrary to the guardians sent after him, and stop his plot! *Bonus for obtaining evidence of why the Gamemaster is doing all these "games" on the guardians.

Damian Alder
Acquaintance | Alive, 23 | ("Speech, C9")
Damian Alder is a 23-year-old man originally from Marchton. An accomplished handler and fighter from a young age, and from a middle-class family, Damian easily landed a job as a bodyguard for a wealthy merchant. The job, despite not being the most exciting thing in the world, kept him in a secure position until a fateful night when a man claiming to be an endorser's son came storming up the trail and assassinated his client.
