Third Character of Nevermore, Cassian

Post by Cassian on Sun Aug 05, 2018 5:57 pm



Type of Character: Human
Link to Character List Page: ]http://www.rpgdragons.org/t5317-nevermore-s-character-list#65386[/url]
Name: Cassian Akitomu
Alias: ‘the’ Stray
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Bisexual
Personality: Cassian has a weary look about him, bags resting under his eyes and a slouched posture. He’s often lazy and uncaring, with a blank face and rarely shows any significant emotions such as joy and anger. When in battle he makes offhanded comments, some don’t even relate to what’s happening, even though this appears like he’s lax and doesn’t care if you escape or not, he isn’t, in battle he’s ruthless and cold-hearted, and if you try and escape and you’re his target, you’ll get chased down until he finishes his job. He often has food or sleep on his mind and is never phased in battle or out of it, verbal lashes and terrifying beasts that haunt your nightmares? He takes it all in a stride. The only time he really shows anger is around corrupt nobles.
He shows mild annoyance when people make idiotic comments and foolish decisions, but that’s about it. He works for himself and never for others, and he never does a job without some kind of reward. He was a child prodigy and in human standards, he’s a genius. He tries to be open-minded and perspective around other sentient beings, which makes him reasonable to deal with. He often makes dry comments when there’s an opening and speaks his mind, making him quite blunt, though this doesn’t apply when he’s talking to dragons, lesser species, or clients. He never takes jobs from unintelligent, corrupt nobles, but if the client is a noble who’s cold and calculating, even if said client is a bit self-centered, he has a certain respect for them, this is the same for dragons that offer him jobs, though that’s quite rare.
When he’s around others he’s familiar with, he shows more of his lazy, uncaring attitude and blunt mindset. In battles and while on a job, he’s cold and calculating, formatting plans at 110mph, his amazing brain is shown during this time, but if you look him in the eyes, beyond that tiered nonchalant attitude, you can see the gears turning in his mind as he analyzes your every action, and his surroundings. This is why you should never underestimate him, if you do, it’ll stab you in the back in the future.
He always expects the worst, so whenever the worst happens, he’s prepared. This isn’t a negative for him, it has saved him in a lot of dangerous situations. Another thing he lets others know, is that he dislikes humans, but if it’s a corrupt, greedy, noble, he loathes them with all his being, and feels like stabbing their smug smirks off with a rusty, serrated dagger and rubbing salt in the wound. Luckily he has a good amount of self-control. He’s quiet, und usually only talks to his mongoose, and his horse, his mongoose is quite intelligent for a such a small mammal, and his horse is a horse, which acts quite affectionate, the bonus is that they don’t talk back. He dislike socializing, and usually only talks to other humans if absolutely necessary, and if he can’t answer a question with a nod or shake of his head.
Fears: Cassian has a paralyzing fear of rabbits, it’s there beady eyes and innocent look, he can’t comprehend innocent beings, it just eludes him, everything has a darker side, that’s his reasoning. He also fears dragons, though it’s more like a respectful fear, he knows dragons can tear him apart with ease so he treads lightly around them, making sure any action or word doesn’t trigger them. He’s wary of everything and anything, some less than others but the wariness is still there.
Strengths: his strength is analyzing situations carefully and acting appropriately in said situation. Another strength is his mind, he can take down any beast if he makes the right moves and plans, this can go from a frontal assault, to trick, traps, and mind games. He knows every pressure point on a human body, which helps him take down enemies with no mess, he also has learned a coupe pressure points on dragons from fighting with rouges, though he ended up half dead often after fighting them. He Obviously doesn’t have enough force to press them if it’s a large dragon, and then there’s the issue of getting to them without being shred to pieces. He’s agile and silent, and knows how to travel undetected.
Weaknesses: One issue for Cassian is his low energy, due to his sleeping disorder (hypersomnia) his mind often thinks it’s bone-tiered, but his body is fully rested, this causes him issues in battle. Along with this disorder, is his weakness against sleeping drugs and gas, one hit after a couple seconds, and he’s out like a light, this varies from how strong and how weak the drug is, but it’s always faster against him then most humans. He’s also quite a deep sleeper, he couldn’t be woken up by thousands of roaring dragons and stampeding monsters, he couldn’t wake up if he was smack-dab in the middle of an all-out war even. This problem is usually solved by him sleeping in well-hidden, out of sight areas. He’s also weak against extreme temperatures, like most humans, which is solved by him wearing appropriate clothing. When he’s against a number of big enemies, he has a harder time, he’s better at attacking one-on-one,  or battling smaller creatures in large numbers. If he’s fighting against a group of large enemies, he usually makes a plan, but if it’s sudden and he had no forewarning, then he’s screwed, and retreats. Another weakness are his two companions, a mongoose and a horse, though not as strong as his other weaknesses, he’s bonded quite well with the two animals, and sees them as his only sense of sanity seeing as his world is filled with complex sentient creatures and monsters. He's also prone to sunburn seeing as he's albino.

Life Info
Home: Cassian is nomadic, and usually just sleeps in Inns with beds not filled with bedbugs. If he can’t reach an Inn, he sleeps in a tree or well-hidden area.
Profession: Stray is a bounty hunter, he hunts any number of creatures, even humans, for a sum of money or some other reward, he accepts jobs from any sentient creature, be it human or dragon, but he backs away from the job if he doesn’t like it.
Family: Cassian’s family was killed before at the age of five his eyes by a mercenary hired by a greedy pig of a noble. His only friend his horse, a Blue Roan named Ashen, and an Angolan slender mongoose with Orange eyes named Reddington. He usually only has allies, and acquaintances.

General Appearance
Height: 5’9
Hair: His hare is stark white, with gradient silver around the edges (light to dark)
Eyes: Pinkish red with flecks of grey
Appearance: He’s an albino, with almost sickly-looking pale skin riddled with scars. He usually wears a Black trench coat with an image on the back ins silver of a snake eating his tail in the design of a figure eight horizontally and small illustrations of red thorn vines curling around the snake, which goes over whatever attire he’s wearing. Speaking of attire, he often wears dark or dull colors to blend in with the background, but not in snow, in snowy weather he wears white clothing and has another, thicker white version of his trench coat. His pants are usually cargo pants with many pockets and a belt to keep them up. He wears combat boots, and bandages that cover his arms, neck, and lower face, along with a bandana over his chin, mouth, and, if necessary, his nose. If he needs to stay undetected he wears a grey cloak with a deep cowl instead of his usual trench coat which blatantly has his signature symbol on the back, yeah, not helpful if ya wanna go unnoticed. He wears a side pack to carry necessities such as three days’ worth of dried fruit and meat, a canteen of water, some medical necessities, a sack of coins, some back-up daggers, flint’n steel, and a winter hat, and some snacks for Reddington. He always carries two dual Karambit strong enough to pierce medium-sized dragons, which he got on the black market.

Skills and Abilities
Skills He’s skilled with daggers and the bow and arrow, and takes great care of his weapons, he’s an amazing tactician with a brilliant mind. Adaptation is one of the key skills he has learned over his five years as a bounty hunter, which has to include travel. Due to his line of work he has a cool head and very little hesitance when it comes to spy work, assassination, and cold-blooded murder. Some of his skills are, creating traps, ambushes, keeping low, keeping hidden, and staying undetected by enemies. He can be quite the diplomat if the situation calls for it, and he’s also good at blackmailing and bluffs. When he lies, he’s unrivaled by anyone, no one can tell if he’s lying unless their very close to him emotionally, which is a very doubtful notion, but who knows? He knows how to treat basic stab wounds, cuts, scrapes, gashes, along with knowing basic medication for common sicknesses. He can also treat hyperthermia, and heat stroke. He has strong survival skills and instincts which comes with constant travel, and he can keep any other living being (chough, chough, Reddington, cough, Ashen) alive through his journeys if he wants to. His agility and speed are also extremely high, around 23.35-23.8 mph, though he mostly runs around 22mph to conserve energy and use his stamina to the highest extent, he can keep his pace of 22, and maybe drop to 20 after half a day. He lacks brute strength, he’s strong, yes, but not strong enough to land deep hits on monsters, dragons, and other tougher beings.  
Equipment: Cassian carries around dual Karambit knives that he knows how to use, he also carries a bow and arrows, and some flasks of poison id he wants to be subtle. He found and stole two enchanted Karambit while on one of his missions for some clients. These Karambit, which are the length of an adult male's hand, have the ability to harden so they're difficult to break, and become strong enough to pierce dragon scales. The limit to this ability is that it cost him his own blood, meaning he has to cut himself and coat the blade in his lifeblood, the time limit of this enchantment is 10mins if he just coats the edge of the blade, and 20mins if he coats the whole blade, which is usually the amount of two-three tablespoons, after the time limit he has to re-apply the blood for it to absorb. Another limitation is if one blade breaks, the other is rendered null to the enchantment and just becomes a normal Karambit. His blade cannot pierce the scales of an adult dragon, unless it's just the talons, which even then is a slim chance. When the blades are fed blood, the engravings along the flat sides of the blades glow crimson red. the engravings read 'Child of Terror'. The blade's breaking point is if they're hit with a broadsword, very hard, they shatter, this is mostly if he's not in the correct stance and the blades aren't crossed to absorb the hit, the same for most daggers. Though they won't shatter with one hit, it takes many hits to shatter a normal blade. But to harden the blade, Cassian has to give up energy, 10% of his energy for every ten mins, and 20% of his energy for 20mins. The max consumption of energy before he's knocked out or dead, if he pushes it, is 50mins to 1h.

Combat Style: His tries to keep his fights/assassinations clean, so first he plans the attack, when attacking the target if the opponent doesn’t have scales, he goes for pressure points to finish his enemies off, if he can’t, he battles with his other weapons killing them off as quickly as possible with a stab/shot to the head or soft throat, if that doesn’t work or he can’t cut deep enough he usually, with knives, makes multiple long, shallow cuts and lets them collect until his enemy bleeds out. With arrows he does the same, shooting the enemy multiple times and then collecting said arrows so they don’t block the wounds, making the opponent bleed out faster, though he usually only uses arrows against opponents who don’t have scales/are small enough due to the fact arrows can be quite ineffective against large or thick-skinned/scaled beasts. If none of the methods mentioned work, he retreats. If it’s a target, he defeats them from the inside out. (unless they have no physical form, then he finds other ways of defeating them after more research on the target). Usually the only reason none of these methods work it’s because they’re too big, have an extremely tough hide, or are more like apparitions then anything. If the opponent is too big he enters through the mouth and cuts up their throat, and If their hides are too tough, he resorts to poison.

Background
History: Cassian was born, originally, in  Anthropinos and to his mother and father who were Pyyria’s equivalent of lawyers. At a mere five years old, he witnessed his parents get killed by mercenaries hired by a greedy, corrupt noble that they were trying to build a case against. He saw it all from his hiding spot in a panel in their living room wall. After the incident he retreated to the streets and continued his life as a street urchin, pickpocketing and learning how to survive alone with the help of his intellect, and fighting skills learned from his parents. He soon grew up and went into the bounty hunting business and he started his first job, which was eradicating some monsters that were plaguing the city fields. After he got enough money he ought proper weapons and a horse.  He was soon discovered by the same noble that killed his family before his eyes at the age of ten, and was captured. Cassian was tortured by that noble in the basement of his house, for no other reason then the sick pleasure the noble got from it. He was saved after a year when the law enforcement searched the nobles house to suspicion of treason and the selling of weapons to the kingdom’s enemies. They found the boy and he was immediately rushed away for medical treatment. The last shred of Cassian’s humanity, left over from that night and living as a street rat, was taken away. He became apathetic towards others pain, and the only strong emotions he had left were hate for nobles, especially corrupt ones. All his other aspects that basically made him human were dulled, happiness and joy withered to minor amusement, sadness dulled down to slight disappointment, most anger left to rot as mere annoyance, and compassion was worn down to slight pity.
It took him a while to recover, two years to be exact, but the only emotional feeling salvaged, barely, was amusement which was a bit stronger. He was distant from humans, and felt slight envy for how many emotions they felt, but that didn’t last long, he became uncaring about the fact. He soon developed hypersomnia after his ordeal, which didn’t help much. He began to take more comfort in animals, and became attached to ashen after he re-bought him from the coins he got from a couple more bounty hunting jobs. While on one of said jobs he came upon an injured Angolan slender mongoose which he nursed back to heath with the healing skills he picked up on his journeys, after that the mongoose followed him around and Cassian decided to adopt him as another animal companion.
The first time he witnessed dragons was when he was 14, it was on another bounty hunting quest for the head of law enforcement in Anthropinos (it took him a while to prove his salt, but they soon relented after a long, logical conversation) They trust bounty hunters to do what they're told for money, especially Cassian, who never back-stabs his clients wishes (unless he had a job, before their request, to kill said client). His job was to stop an underground auction for selling monsters, dragons, and lesser beings. When he arrived on site he went about sabotaging the whole thing, he set the monsters free, then he lesser beings, and then the dragons. All of the captured beasts revolted and tore the whole place apart while he watched from a hidden area, but one dragon in particular caught his eye, it wasn’t fighting. He walked down to the beaten dragon, seeing its once glorious scales faded, and its bright eyes dulled and lifeless. He had known that dragon was a hatchling, it shouldn’t’ve gone through this. A flash of sympathy had pierced through him, he could relate to this dragon, it had the same he had seen in the mirror before. He’d hesitantly walked up to the scarred being, resting one of his small hands on its marred hide, the beast had flinched back, snarling weakly. Yes he remembered saying something…
“Such a majestic beast, once filled with life, reduced to this lifeless husk.” He had chuckled at the irony then, “How similar we are. We may be dragon and human, but we seem to have gone through such similar ordeals”, he had paused, looking up at the young hatchling in the eye, “but just like me you can get through this. You may be scarred, but you should never give up on survival, you’re a dragon yes? Then live like one!”
He’d seen a flash of life glimmer in the scaled beast’s eye, and it raised its head with dignity, letting out a roar and spreading its battered wings. It looked down at him with grateful features and seemed to speak something in draconic. He later found out what it had said,
“Thank you, human, you have brought back my dignity as a dragon, I am in your debt.”
After that line the dragon had flown off to freedom with the rest of the handful of freed hatchlings.
Ever since that moment, Cassian had seen dragons in a new light contrary to the pictures humans painted them as. His respect for dragons only grew as he met more of them on his journey, along with his detest for his own kind. He soon gained his alias, and became well known in the underground. He now continues to do bounty hunting work for the highest bidder, traveling with his horse, Ashen, and his mongoose, Reddington.
RP Sample: Cassian swished his glass of whisky as he peered around the bar, watching with wary eyes as he gazed at the bar’s interlopers. The bartender walked up to him,
“So, Stray, what are you doing here on this fine night?”
Cas hummed in response, “You know as well as I do that I don’t disclose my jobs, especially here, were there are too many ears.”
The bartender chuckled and didn’t push further as he peered back into the dark corners of the stuffy room, calmly stroking Reddington with one hand and taking a sip of his hard drink.

Re: Third Character of Nevermore, Cassian

Ok. So first this, the spelling of the name doesn’t match the profile. Easy fix. Either ask an admin to change the profile name, or change the app name. Your choice.

Second, how does he know a dragon’s pressure points? I know humans have dragon slaves, but I doubt anyone was brave enough to try and find pressure points.

Third, you say his family was killed when he was five at one point, and six at another. Along with this, one sentence seems to say he saw them die at ten too. Probably typos, but something that needs fixing.

On another note, it’s hard to tell exactly what happens when in his history. I’m not sure if it’s chronological, or scattered. You’ll want to edit this for clarity. Also, 14, possibility 10 if I’m reading righ, seems a bit young to be an independent bounty hunter, even with his smarts. Kassian would most likely have a mentor of some sort. His age also seems young for law enforcement too trust with a job unless he already had some sort of record.

Well, Cassian has proven, despite his age, that he's a good bounty hunter, it took a year or two, but he'd proven himself, But if it helps I edited it so that the head of law enforcement doesn't readily accept it him at first and Cassian had to sway him with his eloquent words, also I changed it so that he learned the pressure points of dragons, monsters, and lesser being through bounties and battles. Is that better?

Awesome, also we don't have demons here, so I removed that part from the list of sentient creatures he takes jobs from. It's extremely unlikely that a dragon would offer you a job, but I guess it can stay.
