I know I recently got Balthazar approved, I just wanted to put Cey up and get him sorted pre-emptively. I really like him as a character and he gives me more flexibility for RPing than I have with just Balt.
Name: Ceyrnan [pronounced: keer-nun], or Cey [prn: key], for short.
Age: Unknown; Cey does not visibly age.
Apparant Age: Cey's appearance resembles that of a Human boy, between 9 to 11 years of age.
Hair: Cey has dark brown hair. It is thick and several inches long; his fringe ends just above his eyes.
Eyes: Cey has remarkable eyes, and they are one of the first things people notice about his face. They are a pale grey in colour, and they are large enough to seem slightly disproportionate to his face, though not overly so. This means his normal expression appears surprised, even scared or shocked, even when he is not necessarily so.
Weight: Cey is small with a thin stature, and weighs a mere 65lbs.
Height: Proportionate to his weight, Cey is a diminutive figure at 4'4".
Weapon: Cey carries no weapons at all. (See the Strengths section.)
Armor: None whatsoever.
Strengths: (Read the Personality/Bio sections for a better understanding of this:) Cey is an odd being. He seems to have two sides to him. One is the everyday, ordinary Cey, but the other is what makes him so remarkable. Inside Cey there is a rage, pure and unadulterated. When this rage is loosed, it brings with it an unbelievable, almost limitless increase in physical strength. It makes almost no physical difference to Cey's body, as he still looks small and weedy. However, Cey himself has no access to this incredible strength. It's almost as if there are two beings in one body; the ordinary Cey on the outside, and an utterly insane Berserker of seemingly boundless strength on the inside. The berserker uses no weapons other than his strength to batter and smash anything and anyone around him, be it with fist or knee or head or foot.
The berserker is almost invulnerable to pain; while he can be hurt and injured, he doesn't feel it, meaning he won't shy away or back down from pain or damage, or any perceived challenge or anything he attacks, until there is nothing left, his attention is drawn away, or he reverts back to Cey.
Weakness: The ordinary Cey is childlike. He has no strength, no powers or weapons, and absolutely no inclination for violence; he couldn't bring himself to hurt anyone at all - he physically would not even think of it. He can only fight when he loses control and the rage washes over him. Without the berserker inside, Cey is every bit as helpless as a leaf in the wind; he is weak, timid, and frightened as a sick kitten, and every bit as vulnerable too.
Cey is also addicted to a herb called narciton. Narciton is used in a potion that is made for him to prevent losing control of his rage. The drug puts Cey in a sleepy state of mind, making him completely powerless to defend himself or become the berserker. Depending on how much narciton he has taken, the drug usually either makes Cey doped up and high, or completely trancelike. His dependancy and the effects the drug have on him are both potential weaknesses.
As the berserker, Cey's only real weakness is his mindlessness. Unable to reason or think, he will rush into any attack or trap or danger. He cannot think or reason or deduce at all; he can only act and react. He is also unable to discern between friend or foe, person or inanimate object. He simply reacts to his environment with all his strength and rage.
Skills/Magic: Cey has no skill or power other than the incredible strength the berserker brings out. The berserker takes over when Cey can no longer contain or control the rage inside him. The berserker always retreats back into Cey after a while, seemingly whenever the rage ebbs away. Typically Cey will be left standing mid punch or whilst running or moving, and he is always exhausted, often collapsing into a deep sleep where he stands.
Appearance: Cey is a small being, thin and weedy. His appearance is similar to that of a Human child. He is Humanoid, with an identical body; they only real differences of appearance are his eyes and his ears, both of which are larger than the average Human. His eyes are larger and much wider than Human eyes (which give him a surprised expression), and look disproportionate to the rest of his face. His ears are also much larger than average Human ears. Pointed, like an elf's, they are around three or four inches long. Unlike an elf, however, they are slightly curved and stick out a little.
Cey wears forest garb; plain brown boots and pants, a green tunic, and a dark green forest cloak with a large hood. Cey typically wears the hood up, casting his face into shadow. He walks slightly hunched, and he moves around quickly and erratically, flinching at loud noises and sounds. His movements are usually furtive and quick, and his eyes are always roving and flicking, looking everywhere. His expression, due to the size and shape of his eyes, almost always seems to be surprised, which is often how he feels.
His appearance does not change as the berserker, except for two things; his expression, which contorts from an innocent surprise to malicious grimace, and his skin colour, which simply pales considerably.
Personality: Primarily, Cey is a timid, easily scared creature, which accounts for his quick movements. However, he is also extremely childlike, meaning he can be easily astonished and distracted by the simplest things. He loves bright colours and toys both intricate and simple. But his nature is also similar to that of a bird; easily spooked, he's prone to fleeing loud bangs and crashes. He is, like a child, kindly and good natured, yet he is very simple. He tends to think only in terms of his little world, his own little area, and often with Cey, out of sight means out of mind, meaning he can be forgetful, his thoughts not far-reaching. He doesn't consider money or belongings to be of much value, and he is not very possessive at all in that nature.
Cey despises violence and could never raise a hand to another living creature. He loves animals, and can have hours of fun doing something as simple as chasing a butterfly, though never to catch it or hurt it. Cey doesn't understand much about the world that doesn't directly relate to him. He is a simple being with simple needs.
However, there is a dark side to Cey; deep inside there is a core of rage and hatred. It is so deep that it almost a seperate being, and is embodied by the berserker. Cey himself feels no rage, hatred, or anger, but knows that there is something dark inside of him. He simply calls it "the bad" or "the nasty". The berserker does not have a name or a personality. When Cey see's violence he runs from it, as his greatest fear is losing control forever. He does not like to think or remember the feeling of the rage, as it scares him so much. When the rage takes over, Cey does not remember any of what he does. He only remembers "the darkness", and being lost. He would describe it as a bad dream he has to struggle to wake up from.
Biography: Cey's history and background are unknown even to him. (It should be noted that Cey literally has no history before the moment he was found.) He was found by a witch and soothsayer, named Tesha, while she was travelling through a mountain range to another town. While she camped during the night, an almighty boom sounded from nearby, followed by terrible crashes and an inhuman roar. Tesha's witchly nature made her resolve to find the cause of the noise, and went to find the source.
She found a valley which had been almost utterly destroyed, trees and the rock itself smashed and pummeled, littering the valley. Amongst the floor of the valley she stumbled upon (quite literally) the unconscious form of a young child. Noting the boys slightly odd appearance, she realized that he wasn't Human, and tha he was likely the cause of the destruction about her. She took him back to her camp and when he awoke, she realized that he posed no threat whatsoever to her. She gradually gained his trust and befriended him, and so she took him with her on her travels, caring for him like a mother.
She eventually settled in a town, living there with Cey for many years, though Cey's appearance and nature never once changed. In all that time, Tesha never once saw anything further to suggest anything other to Cey than his childlike innocence, but the truth would soon shatter her beliefs. One day a man followed Cey on his travels, trailing after him into an alleyway, where it is assumed he assaulted Cey. Whether the man wanted to mug Cey for his belongings, or something more sinister, was never made clear. The attack on Cey brought out the berserker, and he smashed his way through the surrounding area and most of the town in his blind fury.
Tesha soon realized what had happened, and when Cey found his way home that night it was made clear. Tesha created a potion for Cey containing a herb known as narciton, which could act as a tranquiliser or a euphorigenic drug, effectively doping Cey up to prevent the berserker taking hold. Cey wouldn't come to depend on the drug for many years to come.
To the current time, Cey lives in a hut in a forest of the mountains, where he lives simply and contently. He makes frequent journeys to the town where Tesha still lives for supplies, specifically for the narciton potion he is addicted to.
I'd prefer it if you could edit his age to reflect his actual age, and then make a note about how old he appears to be, but it's fine if you don't want to change. Sounds like a spiffy character. *stamps with approval*
Um, well, see, I don't actually know how old he is. Even he doesn't know how old he is. I was hoping in my first RP with him I'd make a point to say something like, Tesha had found him about 32 years ago and he hadn't aged since, so there's really no way to know how old he is.
But I mean if it's a problem I could try and maybe work something out?
