How you found Mosaic: I'm Veld from LSR! :D

Character Info

Name: Vincent Valentine [I use Dr Vickalor Vincent Valentine in most writings considering his closeness for the project was unusual for a TURK. However the first name is fanon and I will drop it if need be. Nicknames are "Spooky", "Vin", "Vince", and "Vinny"]
Fandom/Series: Final Fantasy Seven Compilation
Point in Cannon: Pre-Game
Age:26 Since I'm taking Vincent after his break with Lucrecia and before he's been placed into hibernation, I'm going to take him very shortly after his 26th birthday.

What they brought with them: Vincent is bringing a suitcase carrying a complete set of surgical tools, clothes (including a ShinRa red labcoat and a white coat), mini computer, and lots of ammo. He's also got two desert eagle handguns carried on his person. His living creature is a sentient, but not talking venus flytrap by the name of Whitney. It hates the world unless you happen to be Vincent or a Cetra.

A place you'd like to have added to the City: A bar that has regular jazz nights. :D I'm thinking something like Nicky Blane's that is located in Indy.

Appearance: Vincent is six feet tall with blue eyes and messily cropped black hair that frames his face. He doesn't do much with it in the line of maintenance so it usually has places that jut out here and there. It contrasts sharply with his extremely pale skin and gives him a rather "vampiric" appearance that he'd bother to change if he cared enough. Vincent sunburns at nearly record speeds and does what he can to avoid any prolonged periods outdoors. He cannot hold a tan and this has been a source of annoyance for him.

He's thin and wiry with slightly feminine features. His smile has been called disturbing and makes one think that he is more than a little unhinged. He doesn't mind that in the slightest. He finds that the less sane he appears the more he is able to get his work done.

He's thin and wiry with slightly feminine features. His smile has been called disturbing and makes one think that he is more than a little unhinged. He doesn't mind that in the slightest. He finds that the less sane he appears the more he is able to get his work done.

Personality: Meticulous and very calculating at work, Vincent's also very easily fixated. He follows things with a slightly obsessive edge and is tenacious about them. This included his studies before becoming a Turk and his job performance as a Turk. Due to his extreme focus, Vincent's marks are consistently above average in most things that he attempts.

As I play him, Vincent is schizophrenic and sometimes the delusions and paranoia get extremely real for him. His onset was about two years earlier than average, at fourteen.

Typically, he hears a total of three voices: Galian, Gigas, and Hellmasker. Hellmasker is by far the most prominent of the three, and is a near constant. Galian communicates in growls and snarls and is the quietest. Gigas typically speaks in only high pitched giggles and profanity. Vincent will experience smells that are not there, but that is fairly uncommon. He will see shadows move, but is not given to full blown hallucinations often. When injured or under high levels of stress, however, his mental state can change. Vincent is somewhat paranoid, though he can typically separate what is going on in his brain from the reality of the situation.

When he slips, Vincent is prone to lash out violently. This lended itself as more of as asset than a detriment when he was transferred to the Turks and having an outlet for his own violent urges seemed to help him balance himself more. Vincent almost finds comfort in blood and violence the inner workings of the human body are typical and have little deviation. He knows what to expect when he goes in for a kill and finds the end result artful and powerful. He refuses to take long term psychiatric medication due to adverse side effects and instead self medicates.

Due to his mental illness, Vincent is rather flat faceted and does not quite grasp most human interactions. He learned how to fake emotional responses long before he felt them and bluffed his way though most mental evaluations. He is withdrawn and quiet, preferring to observe a social group for a long while before actively joining it. This would keep him from being the center of attention in a group as that causes him extreme discomfort.

This isn't to say that he is incapable of human interaction or doesn't have friends. He considered himself close to a number of the Turks, including his partner, Verudo (Veld). He also had a very serious relationship with Lucrecia Crescent when the two were both working in the ShinRa Labs. Vincent requires people who take the time to understand his quiet behavior before he can really befriend them. He's easily fixated on people and is extremely loyal once a bridge of communication has been made.

(OC) Abigail Warner app Part 1/?
Player Info

Nickname: Danielle/PG
AIM: MSN: teiruzuotaku@hotmail.com
Time Zone: Pacific (-8 iirc)
Are you over 16?: I am 18 ♥
How you found Mosaic: I saw the ad on the Ace Attorney comm before it was deleted. It interested me and then I found out that fandom OCs ARE ALLOWED YAY. I’ll probably pick up a canon character later, however.

Character Info

Name: Abigail (Abby, Abbie, Abbs, what have you) Warner
Fandom/Series: Soul Eater
Point in Cannon: About a week or so before the Kishin’s revival but after she and Eve leave for Shibusen (will be explained later)
Age: Aaaaalmost 16

What they brought with them: Unfortunately, her weapon is Eve. And since said weapon is not with her, she has none. But um...she brought a suitcase full of miscellaneous personal belongings (since she was already traveling in the first place) and most importantly her precious journal.

A place you'd like to have added to the City: Shibusen would be FABULOUS Um...some kind of beach? Or body of water, since Abby's probably going to feel homesick sooner or later.

Appearance: Abigail has fair skin (not pale), green eyes, and shoulder blade length wavy black hair. However, she prefers to straighten it and wear it in a ponytail or braid whenever possible. She favors wearing dresses above all else, though she isn’t picky and basically wears whatever the weather or situation calls for. She stands at about 5’4’’ in height (with Eve at around 5’8’’) though she kind of hopes that she’ll grow at least two inches taller.

Personality: To sum Abigail up in one word? Shy. She avoids confrontation like the plague (though if something needs to get done she’ll get it done; she isn’t a coward) and tends to stick to a small circle of friends like glue. And even then, her weapon partner, Evelyn, is so far the only one she’s been able to completely and truly open up to. Abigail realizes this, however, and is currently trying to become more outgoing. Easier said than done though. So far it’s been unsuccessful for the most part. Because of this, she ‘s drawn to the more boisterous and charismatic types hoping they’ll rub off on her. It’ll take either a lot of coaxing or one big shock treatment event to get through her unintentional guard.

However, when you DO get to know her and she trusts you, her personality gradually but almost drastically changes. It takes a lot to really get the smile off of her face, but when you do, it’s most likely because you’re mad at her for whatever reason. Then she reverts back to her shy reclusive state and it’ll take a while (and some convincing) to get her back to normal.

Incidentally, Abigail’s a lot better at expressing herself over the phone and especially in writing (it’s the face to face thing that gets to her). She has a small diary that she carries around wherever she goes and writes in it whenever she can. If anyone were ever to get a hold of it, they’d be in for...quite a surprise.

Abigail’s also a bit stereotypical in that she loves cute things, hates bugs except for butterflies/ladybugs, but she absolutely hates dogs. Big, small, old, or young, she just doesn’t like them. She was kind of traumatized when she was younger, when someone lost control of their dog on the beach. Said dog jumped on her for her corndog and wouldn’t get off until Eve ran over with the owners to pull it back and by this time she was in hysterics.
That one chick: STAY FABULOUS MAX ♥phantasiagirl on March 10th, 2010 03:38 pm (UTC)
History: Abigail was born in a small beachside town in Southern California, to a family of five (including two older brothers and her parents). Even at an early age she was reluctant to play with the other children in her neighborhood, choosing instead to play barbies with herself and sometimes her imaginary friend “Lizzie” (this caused much teasing from the other kids, unfortunately). It wasn’t until she was five years old did another young girl by the name of Evelyn Bard move in next door along with her parents. She was two years older and very curious as to why the little girl next door only seemed to play by herself. Why, that was just unthinkable! So in effect, she made it her personal mission to befriend her, including bribery, invasion of personal space, and just all around being nosey. Abigail, to say the least, was surprised with Eve’s determination but she wasn’t unhappy with it. Now she privately wonders how this calm, graceful young woman evolved from that weird hyperactive seven year old.

But I digress. It was two years after Eve moved in that the incident occurred. The two young girls were having a sleepover at Abigail’s house when a serial killer by the name of M. Meyers* broke in and immediately gravely injuring both of Abby’s older brothers. Her parents were also caught in the “line of fire” before he turned his attention on her and Eve, but it was then that help arrived. Fortunately, both her parents and siblings were okay. Abigail still doesn’t know to this day who it was that saved them from what turned out to be a serial killer, but she did find out that they were from Shibusen. Because of this, both she and Eve have been determined to someday enroll in Shibusen themselves, both to find who saved them and also become people who can help others like the way they were.

However, their parents adamantly refused to let them head off to Nevada at such a young age. Both girls were surprisingly stubborn about this though, so a compromise was made. Once Evelyn was 18 and a legal adult, they would be given permission to go. Though Abigail’s parents were still on the fence about it, they ultimately relented.

*I’m trying rather unsuccessfully methinks to go with the whole “horror movie named villain” theme Soul Eater has. This is based off of “Michael Myers” from the Halloween movies though I’ve never seen them orz.

Abilities/Weaknesses: Abigail is a meister and is able to wield spear-type weapons like Evelyn. She also has moderate hand-to-hand combat ability that she can use in a pinch, but she is nowhere near capable of going against someone with a few years of experience. Other than that she has no real special abilities except for cooking and doodling drawing.

AU!Tifa Lockhart
Player Info

Nickname: Ash
AIM: Ashe Jotunheim
Time Zone: CST
Are you over 16?: 27
How you found Mosaic: friends

Character Info

Name: Tifa Lockhart(AU)
Fandom/Series: Final Fantasy Seven Compilation.
Point in Cannon: She's being taken from during the original run of AVALANCHE before Nibelheim burns.

What they brought with them: Her clothes, her gloves, probably a gun.

Her bar if at all possible for buildings


Personality: Tifa at heart is a gentle person, more suited to a domestic role than that of a fighter. She's happiest living what would be termed a normal life. Tifa is also extremely protective of her family and friends to the point of risking her own life to protect them. She has no qualms about fighting when it's necessary. She also has no problems standing up for herself. Tifa is an extremely supportive character and while she's capable of handling herself alone, she needs people around her or at least in contact so she doesn't feel isolated. She's a motherly type as well which is why Veld entrusted raising Aeris to her. Tifa does keep

History: Tifa Lockhart was born to a couple in Nibelheim roughly 30 years before the beginning of the original game. She was popular enough although as she got older she spent more time alone and eventually found her way down to the basement of the Shinra mansion. She explored it frequently and eventually located the room where Vincent slept. After this point, she began spending most of her free time talking to him until she finally left Nibelheim to find the man he'd told her about. Tifa arrived in Midgar around the time she turned 15 and a few months before Aeris and her mother escaped from the labs. She'd located Veld who had agreed to take her in and train her in the use of weapons and fighting in response to the letter she'd brought from Vincent.

Two months later he came home with a child and told Tifa she was his daughter. Tifa took Aeris and they settled in another house so there was no visible tie between her and Veld aside from the child and Tifa received money every few weeks to ensure she was properly fed and cared for. Tifa fell into the role of caretaker easily and enjoyed Aeris's company. By the time Aeris was 15, Tifa was in her 20s and had taken to following the girl to the church in the slums. It wasn't that Aeris couldn't take care of herself, just that Tifa hated being alone and with Veld so busy with the incidents caused by AVALANCHE, she felt more secure knowing Aeris was safe.
master_fist on April 15th, 2010 03:21 pm (UTC)
Re: AU!Tifa Lockhart

Abilities/Weaknesses: She's a strong physical fighter although Veld made sure she was skilled with guns as well.


Example 3rd Person Post: Tifa had gotten use to handling both the bar and keeping an eye on Aeris in the eight years since she'd been given care of the younger girl. The easiest method of handling her was just letting her do as she liked and having someone else watch the bar while she kept an eye on Aeris during the day. At least Aeris didn't wander much once it got dark, Tifa noted amused as she was running a cloth over the bar. Aeris made a good waitress and the clients liked her which made things easier. The only reason she'd gotten the bar was because Veld called in a favor and he stopped in a few nights a week but not often enough to draw too much attention.

She ran fingertips over the grooves of the bar before moving around the end to start getting the bar ready to open. Aeris had been out at the church and Tifa'd been expecting a delivery so she'd had to let her go alone. It still bothered her, letting the younger girl out of her sight but most people knew to leave her alone. The last time anyone'd bothered Aeris, Tifa had made sure they didn't repeat the mistake. She glanced up when she heard someone enter and offered the teenager a smile before turning back to finish taking the chairs down.

How you found Mosaic: Ashe-Drak enabling team ahoy

Character Info

Name: Veld
Fandom/Series: Final Fantasy VII Compilation
Point in Canon: At the end of BC, just after the blackmailing incident
Age: 47

What they brought with them:

He has a prosthetic with mastered materia (his spawned materia he passed over to Tseng). A 'trinket' box which contains amongst other things some old photographs, numerous ballistic shells and a necklace. People can't call Veld a sentimentalist because anybody who knows about it is dead.

A place you'd like to have added to the City:
Shinra Mansion


Veld is slightly smaller than average and fairly stocky, having a matured masculinity. However he is built with efficiency in mind – his body reflecting purpose in the compact mass of muscle and sinew which, despite his age, can still be worked absolutely effectively. His right arm below the elbow is a prosthetic inset with materia.

He is in his late forties and this shows in the lines of the face as well as in his brushed back medium-length brown hair (one section of which falls forwards most of the time) as it is flecked with grey. He has groomed facial hair and a noticeable scar spanning his left cheek to the bottom of his jawline.


Veld has a reputation of being a pretty scary bastard, and, on the face of it, that will always ring true. He is extremely methodical, very precise and does not tolerate failure well. He remains every bit as ruthless and cold a killer as requisite for the job, consistently calculating and calm under pressure.

Whilst gruff he also knows how to play the politics game, and it is clear that he can be just as slick in this arena as other more 'natural' persons. Observation, analysis, synthesis; all are necessary traits for intelligence gathering and espionage, and likewise are useful skills for politicking. This is a man who could, with reason to do so, find out just how many types of underwear you have in your top drawer, then he might have the inclination to tell you exactly how he could destroy you – using your said unmentionables – in a least 20 different ways. All in gruesome detail. But then psychological mind games (and torture) are only one step away from politicking, after all.

Beneath the gruff severity however are reasons, and this is where there is paradox in the man. He does not tolerate failure because he does not want to see potential for the same mistakes he has made, revisited. The final layer of Veld is key: he is also a father, as unlikely as that may seem, and is fiercely protective of his family - whether that be literal or with regards to his other 'kids', the Turks.

Veld Application part 2/?

Veld was born to parents in Kalm. Memories of his childhood are kept to himself though this remains non-problematic as, for Veld, his life (traceable or otherwise) began in the Turks. During the inceptions of the Jenova project Vincent Valentine came under the Turks. Paired up with Vincent, Veld found his order of things challenged. They bickered. A lot. Yet, over the natural course of events the two become unlikely yet undeniable partners.

After what happened with Vincent, Veld had an affair with Ifalna - the last known Cetra and a woman which was under his 'watch', to say it politely. It could have been called a period of mourning. Veld however did not call it that. A child, Aeris, was born. Mother and child escaped from Shinra soon after that.

A young woman from Nibelheim who had connections with Vincent (which Veld thoroughly researched as only a Turk could do) came to Midgar. Veld initially begun to train Tifa in combat, scoping her for a Turk member as he was impressed with her innate abilities. However as Aeris once more came into his life Veld realising Tifa's other skills brought the responsibility of her care to the dark-haired woman who resembled his former partner in looks more than anything. Veld did not trust anybody but himself but Tifa had proven herself capable and as much as he did not admit it, she was someone on which he could rely upon. He ensured their lives were comfortable and Tifa was smart enough to keep their connections under wraps.

In the meantime Veld had taken on the lead role in charge of the department of Administration and Research. Tseng was taken on as Veld's 'protege' and he instilled all the rigours of the Turks into the Wutai boy. Following an insurgence of eco-terrorism Veld took Tseng as his number one, both directing the rest of the Turks in their activities, with Veld tempering Tseng's temperament. After demotion due to allegations of conspiracy with AVALANCE Tseng stepped up to the mantle, showing Veld that he was still needed or he would have to face watching his 'kids' being decimated from the outside in. Tseng knew his former mentor could not just sit back whilst that happened.

Veld blackmailed President Shinra and was given back control of the Turks. Avalanche continued to be a thorn in the side of the Corporation, and Veld continued to direct his Turks alongside Tseng. After Nibelheim burned to the ground Hojo demanded the survivors be delivered to him for experimentation. Even the Turks balked at the suggestion. Veld however, recalling the events that led to obtaining his prosthetic, took this duty upon himself.


Veld is somewhat of a materia specialist, particularly since the incident in Kalm and the fixture of his prosthetic. He can also use all weapons in a standard Shinra arsenal, and then some, with ruthless efficiency. Whilst not the best marksman he will nearly always meet his target. And whilst he his not the quickest or strongest person he does know exactly how to use his own body, and of course his mind, for best effect. Despite his prosthetic and the materia built therein Veld enjoys hands on combat the most.

Veld can become a clinician of detachment quickly. This borders on sociopathic - that frame of mind and lack of obvious emotion so easily switched into as and when necessary. His true weakness however comes with what could be argued is the opposite of that, in that he does actually care about some very specific people. It has not yet happened that Veld Verdot has been backed into a corner by his emotions, but this is a weakness that could be exploited provided you were brave enough – or stupid enough – to try.

1/2 - Ellis (Kingdom Of Loathing OC)
Player Info

Nickname: Kaz (internet nickname, right?)
AIM MSN: kazyan@live.com
Time Zone: Mountain
Are you over 16?: Yes, 17.
How you found Mosaic: role_play_ads

Character Info

Name: Ellis
Fandom/Series: Kingdom Of Loathing (Fandom OC)
Age: 31

What they brought with them: Because Ellis was taken during an adventure, she only carries what was on her. Her outfit consists of a dull and worn white shirt, a pair of bloodstained pants--yellow, with red polka-dots, but that might just be more stains--and a translucent green visor over her eyes. In her left hand, she holds an unremarkable copper-bottom saucepan, and a lone silver-colored ring on her pinky finger.
In the pants pockets are her wallet (Loathingian currency is meat, obviously useless) and a small canister of spices. There is also a pet mosquito buzzing around her, which never bites unless provoked.

A place you'd like to have added to the City: The Gigantic Superfluous Fountain. http://images.kingdomofloathing.com/otherimages/town/fountain.gif
This is more or less self-explanatory; the fountain has no real function and it is twice the size of an ordinary small shop (2x2x2 times). Back in the Kingdom, it was common for people to swim in the waters during their calendar's Generic Summer Holiday.

Appearance: Her outfit is described two sections above. In stature, Ellis is short and stocky, but with poor muscle mass. Her skin is fairly tanned, and smooth from exposure to moisture, but her hands and face are dark and roughly callused. The woman wears tolerant expression most of the time, but with a wary air about her. Up close, one can easily smell a mix of food-scents, the most prominent being vinegar.

Personality: Ellis has an industrious tilt, very much suffering from "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". Dull indeed: the woman stays detached in a social setting, hiding emotion behind a poker face. Strong discipline guides her. She's also rather distrusting, assuming hostility instead of friendliness by default. Once friendly, though, she tries to only talk about important things, but frankly, the urge to gossip is too strong.
Ellis rarely reaches out to people and doesn't make the first move. Instead, she's reactionary, always cautious. She enjoys new information, and it's even better if it's her own discovery. Combined with a distrusting nature, this means she snoops around a lot, and studies foreign phenomena closely.
When sad, Ellis broods. Otherwise, negative emotion--anger, guilt, jealously--is channeled into her studies and her magic/sauces. One way to crack her is to bring up Terrence, but good luck learning about that in the first place. Happiness, for Ellis, manifests as being energetic and more trusting than usual.

2/2 - Ellis (Kingdom Of Loathing OC)
History: Ellis grew up under a rather normal family, part of an emotionally distant clan. It was just too big. Since everyone was too busy to talk to her, she spent most of her time with her family--mother and father. She may have never become a Sauceror if it were not for Terrence, a very friendly initiate of the League of Chef-Magi who visited the clan one day. He was her first close friend, and the two spent a lot of time together whenever possible. Ellis eventually pursued saucery while Terrence became a Pastamancer, so she didn't gain the wariness of the opposite mystical art that is typical for chef-magi. Likewise with Terrence. Eventually, they joined an Adventurer College, where they graduated in the top 20%.
Both of them took up the quest to go take down the Naughty Sorceress, but it went terribly wrong. Terrence decided to go to the Icy Peak before he was ready. Ellis had a protective sphere, but her friend quickly succumbed to frostbite. Despite assistance with healing salves, the Sauceror couldn't keep her friend from losing an arm. Normally this is not a big problem for hardened adventurers, but Terrence had to hold his staff in the opposite hand, which he wasn't used to. He cast a spell incorrectly, and basically char-broiled himself.
Ellis blames this disaster on her lack of aptitude. This event traumatized her, driving her to greater devotion to her studies and a lack of attachment to people. This is part of the reason she refused to learn about reagents and instead went to cold, unfeeling metal, citing her guilt. This pretty much ostracized her from the League, since that decision is unheard-of. Years later, after recovering her life with this new demeanor...Mosaic happened.
Abilities/Weaknesses: As a Sauceror, Ellis can perform various spells.
"Sauce Contemplation", which basically focuses her capacity to do spells,
"Saucy Salve", which performs rapid, moderate healing (this is the spell she failed to save Terrence with)
"Jalapeno Saucesphere", which creates a translucent globe around Ellis, which can absorb damage with particular strength against elements.
Instead of learning to use scrumptious reagents like any Sauceror worth their salt, Ellis did her own research and instead does metalworking. She is familiar with most native metals in the Kingdom and can forge them into weapons, using her pan and a custom sauce as the mold.


Example 3rd Person Post: Morning.
Ellis lay in her tent, idly looking through a book. The Oriole chirped in the distance, but the sauceror ignored that stupid bird. She was already up, alright? She had been for a while; reading this stupid thing. Physics, huh? They obviously didn't do their research. No, the universe was not made of super-tiny little vibrating strings. It was made of sauce and pasta, especially the former; this had been proven time and again by the chef-magi. Seriously, if you didn't know magic, you got some really weird ideas sometimes.
The woman sighed and closed the book, setting it down. The scientists weren't bad people, of course...they just hadn't found the most efficient route to knowledge. Ellis waved one hand, twitching her fingers a few times. Rrgh...no, destroying the book wasn't necessary. it had some things worth rereading in it, even if it was completely wrong on some parts. Besides, she had no destructive spells. What good were they?
Her twitching fingers settled on the physics book as she picked it up and placed it on a stack of other tomes. Mmm-hmm, the non-magic goes over there. Was this a mistake? Keeping away from the great tools of Saucerors, in favor of...no, Terrence. Besides, wasting time thinking about this wouldn't do anything productive. If she wanted to waste time thinking, it would be about improving the recipe for her metalworking sauce-mold.
Through this train of logic, Ellis's expression never changed--one of generic tiredness, a college student. Yeah, mornings. The sun wasn't particularly useful for anything, except getting a few sauces to the right temperature on a hot day. Such was the only thing good about hot days.


This is my second LJ rp, so I still don't know the protocol for your fancy schmancy "tagging" and "journals" and stuff. This is a...sock, right?

Sephiroth App 1/?
Player Info

Nickname: jenovaboi (it's a genric nick i use a lot of places - names Amie)
AIM: gothikamie666
Time Zone: GMT
Are you over 16?: Yes - 24
How you found Mosaic: I'm Sephiroth in LSR, Ardith pointed me here cos I wanted an additional place to play. After some encouraging/ further enabling from backing_wind well...here goes.

Character Info

Name: Sephiroth
Fandom/Series: Final Fantasy VII
Point in Cannon: Pre-Crisis Core (just before Genesis went MIA in Wutai)
Age: 22

What they brought with them: The essentials. The clothing on his back complete with shiny boots and armor. One 6ft-something Masamune. One useless!PHS (which no longer can get signal or even power in this reality). Sephiroth's quite capable of surviving in the field with not a lot else.

A place you'd like to have added to the City:Sephiroth's Appartment in the ShinRa HQ, cos everyone needs to have somewhere to go back home to plus personal training/relaxing space?

Appearance: Sephiroth is just about 6"3, enough to tower over most opponents. He's strongly built and physically well defined from years of combat experience and training but not overly so, typically what you'd expect from a legendary war hero. With a Masamune poised to strike it's easy to see why the silver warrior would need to be taken seriously. He has long silver hair nearly down to the back of his knees with two shorter, almost gravity-defying bangs which flick up and then down each side of his face at the front. Typically he wears his customized SOLDIER uniform of choice; that is one open chested trenchcoat, complete with his standard SOLDIER-issue harness which he wears without a shirt. The look is complete with over-knee boots and leather pants. Topped off with a double-pauldron on each shoulder, polished always to a shine. Sephiroth takes great attention to how he looks as he's acutely aware he's at the centre of a lot of attention, and since his 'hero' status in the media is also aware of his responsibility to younger people as a role-model. Always clean, shiny and presentable.

Personality: Self-confident to the last Sephiroth loves a challenge and will rise to anything provided he see's it as such. He can be read as arrogant, somewhat aloof by people who would know him well enough to judge but that's only due to his never failing attitude. Sephiroth never allows himself to fail and so pushes himself very hard to achieve his goals whatever they may be. It's very much a case of he knows what he's good at and will always play to his own strengths, taking pride in what he does and how he does it. He's a -fairly- big guy with a larger ego, not helped by the expanding "Silver Elite" fanclub made for him by people back in Midgar.

He's a highly trained combatant but has the also discipline that comes with it. His ability to maim and kill are kept very well in check, weapons at his disposal only when they are needed. He's not so much of the "Honor and Dreams" mantra that his friend Angeal kept so close to his heart at SOLDIER, having been at the top of the pecking order in the first place. Many may call him "privileged" but ShinRa's so-called silver warrior spent most of his childhood in quite different circumstances, he knows he's special but he's trying so hard to put it to good use. After all, ShinRa took him in and he's never had anyone else, that type of 100% loyalty is atypical of Sephiroth, though it does lead to a little workoholism.

Generally he's great asset to have on one's side. However due to the secluded past, social interaction doesn't come easy to him and it can be awkward at times. He will always speak the truth as he knows it, honesty is another defining attribute, though sometimes that's not the best idea either. Socializing requires a certain amount of fabrication more times than not.

Re: Sephiroth App 2/?
History: Born to Professor Hojo and Lucretia Crescent as the result of the Jenova Project Sephiroth has never known his mother and doesn’t know the true identity of his father either. He was isolated from what would be a ‘usual’ life as soon as he was born. Test after test followed for a few years, to prove that the experiment had been a success. Only Professor Gast appeared to be any sort of a father figure but at six years old Sephiroth lost Gast forever. Only later on in life would he learn that Gast had died. As soon as Sephiroth was of school-age he was privately tutored to a high standard of education but always under the watchful eye of Shinra’s science department, especially that annoying man with the hideous laugh and wiry glasses. Once the time came in youth for Sephiroth to start asking questions about his mother, he was always told of how special his mother “Jenova” was and how she died so that he could live, this was always a snap back to concentrating on his schooling and also the pastime he’d had started to take an interest in – sword fighting.

Sephiroth developed quickly into a skilled swordfighter and combined with his inherent intellect made him a deadly opponent from as young as 10. While still undergoing his private tutoring Sephiroth was enrolled in the military academy where he would learn all the necessary discipline, stamina and reasoning that would shape the next ten years of his life. At the age of 18 Sephiroth was fighting in Wutai as 1st Class SOLDIER, quickly promoted to General rank, already creating a name for himself as a hero back home. Just before his emergence in Mosaic city, he'd returned from a rather cruelling tour in Wutai and was enjoying leave. OR rather he was officially on leave but a lifetime of routine never stops ticking. Reports to write, training to be kept up with on a daily basis, emergency call outs, meetings....and maybe he'll get some sleep sometime this week!

-Sephiroth is a master swordfighter first and foremost, with his preferred weapon he could take on the world but he can use other, much shorter blades also. He's not so bad at hand-to-hand combat either since it's a base for any form of weapon fighting.
-Canon truths have yet to be revealed but Sephiroth rarely wonders about his origin's thesedays though, they were very much adolescent frustrations. There's no need, he's at his prime of life. He has a decent amount of freedom, privacy and he's doing something constructive with his life. Even if he does occasionally indulge in some light reading, knowledge is power and you can never have enough of it.
