Marcus "Bronze" Degan

Post by Bronze Degan on Mon Mar 12, 2012 3:44 am

...........................................................................
CASE FILE: Alchemist/Ciel Militant

The only thing you should regret in life is the fact you've left some paths unwalked.
...........................................................................

FULL NAME:
→ Marcus "Bronze" Degan

AGE:
→ 28

SEX:
→ Male

BIRTH PLACE:
→ Vaingloria

RACE:
→ 1/2 Gelemortian, 1/2 Doa'an

DATE OF BIRTH:
→ May 23, 1984


...........................................................................


HEIGHT:
→ 182 centimeters

WEIGHT:
→ 88 kilograms.

PICTURE:
Spoiler:

DESCRIPTION:
→ Standing a little under six feet tale, Marcus cuts an intimidating yet whimsical figure with his lively green eyes with bronze hallows around the iris, and wavy dark brown hair and slightly tanned skin. This being said, only one word can accurately describe the way he holds himself, passionate. Every movement he makes is full of energy and a zest for life. His face is wide and stark, with expressive eye brows that always seem to be dancing. His gait also reflects his mood, if happy he almost leaps as he walks because there’s so much spring in his step, if hes angry every step he takes seems some how more solid and purposeful. The only thing about him that remains constant is the stubborn set of his jaw which juts out defiantly no matter the situation. So strong are his emotions that they seem to radiate from him in an almost visible aura. This causes some to dislike him, because in comparison they don’t really live.


...........................................................................


PERSONALITY:
→To say Bronze wears his heart on his sleeve is like saying that the sun is as bright as a candle, Hes as charismatic and gregarious an individual as anyone can find with a highly addictive personality. Thankfully he’s what some would call a “responsible addict” and only indulges in his vice when hes sure it won’t have any negative effects on near future endeavors. The sole exception to this rule is his thirst for adrenalin and high intensity situations. If given a choice between walking across the street when the walk light says walk, or weaving in-between cars as they speed by in order to reach his destination faster…he will choose to weave in-between the speeding cars. Some call him reckless, he calls himself adventurous, and as always he says ”Why walk when you can run, jump or fly?”.

Bronze is an incredibly outspoken person, who hides little to nothing of what hes thinking at any given moment, as you can imagine this can lead him into some volatile situations, but oddly his out spoken personality rarely leads him into knockdown drag out fights. There could be any number of reasons for this, maybe its his personal charm (which he claims he has), or it could be his intense stare ( which he claims throws people through loops). But more then likely its his ability to laugh off any situation and make it seem unimportant, but the truth may never be known.

As far as personal relationships go’s, he’s more of a love them and leave them kinda guy. Because of the nature of his work (and the fact he’s a self acclaimed super spy) he doesn’t tend to stick around for vary long and is loathe to make any lasting relationships because of this. This is not to say it has not happened, in fact its happened three times, because three of those one night stands ended up baring some vary surprising fruit… In the form of three children, from three different woman, in three radically different nations.

Killing changes men, and for a man of pacifistic ideals to murder in cold blood leaves a certain stain on the soul. Marcus is no longer the same care free man he used to be, sure he puts on the show with all the pomp and circumstance that one would expect, but deep down he nurses a self loathing that is slowly eating away at him.

LOVE:
→ The concept of change and mutability
Bright lights and explosions in the form of fireworks
Dancing in any venue(music isn't necessary)
Strong intoxicant's in any form
Life in general, his in specific
Language and music
Chance encounters
Magic
Wolfy
Dragons!!!
Kids

HATE:
→ Overly ordered individuals
Clocks and time(there's just not enough of it)
People who "refuse to live"(They sicken him for some reason)
People who don't speak there mind
Boot lickers
Bad food(I mean seriously...is it that HARD to get a steak right?)
Esperia
People who take advantage of others
THUGS!!!

War
killing


DEEPEST SECRET:
The fact hes a world famous super spy of course..... *cough cough*
He's killed with his alchemy, breaking the greatest taboo of his people.

IDOL:
→ None


...........................................................................

HISTORY:
→ Ages 0-14

Marcus “Bronze” Degan was born into a family of entertainers famous for their traveling menagerie, magic shows, and world renowned pyrotechnics displays. His father one Elinjar “Iron” Degan was the “Ring master” of the entire affair along with being one of the main attractions, He was known through out the world as “Iron the magnificent” a magician the likes of which hadn’t been seen in 60 years. His mother Raciel “Gold” Deganworked as his stage assistant, but more importantly used her alchemical knowledge to light up the night sky in ways that hadn’t been thought of. Thanks to his parents traveling show Bronze was able to experience many different cultures and languages at an early age and this enabled him to learn multiple languages in his first 7 years and hes just continued to learn more sense that time.

Thanks to his family’s diverse background Bronze never lacked for things to do or things to study, which thankfully kept him out of to much trouble in his beginning years. When he wasn’t learning stage illusions and slight of hand from his father, his mother was teaching him the “secrets” of her alchemical arts. Not only that but the other entertainers in their marry band of misfits taught him there various trades, from tight rope walking and acrobatics to purse cutting and swindling. Thanks to this wide array of talents(some of which he took to, some of which he did not) he soon took to the stage and preformed alongside his parents and friends.

Ages 15-20

When he was 15 his parents decided that it was time for him to learn more about his heritage, so not long after his birthday he said fair well to his parents and friends and was sent to live with people he barley even knew…his mothers parents, and who he supposed where his grand parents. After the arduous 3 week journey he finally made it back to the land of his ancestors, a land he hadn’t set foot in sense the week after his birth.

Waiting for him where the people who would polish this boy into the man he would become. His grand parents where hard people from a hard land, but they grew to love the mischievous boy that came to live with them. For the next five years he worked on the social skills he had been lacking and grew to love the rugged territory of his home land. He journeyed to and explored every inch of land he could find, everyday trying to out do himself, everyday looking for new and exciting things. Sadly his explorers spirit lead him down the path of addiction, and that’s the one path hes never gotten tired of.

20-Now

At the age of 20 he enlisted into the military of the country he had grown to love, he found that his many diverse talents would help get far in the intelligence service. Slowly but surely hes been working up the ranks. For now he wonders between countries, gathering information for his country, some vital to its survival, most just of passing curiosity, but he thanks luck every day that hes able to serve….the fact that he thoroughly enjoys his work doesn’t seem to bother him ether.

The past six months have been busy ones for bronze, he’s ran for his life, seen the lead up to war, met more then a few interesting people and become a teacher for a young girl. For the first time in his life he feels needed, wanted and most of all respected by those around him. This has been in no small way related to his recent accomplishments in his personal life, a string of woman (And some men) have pushed and prodded him toward taking responsibility for his actions and have made him reexamine his life’s goals. Sadly this hasn’t changed the fact that he’s a risk taker, but for now those risks seem to have paid off. He’s met an extraordinary child who’s many gifts may include the subtle art of alchemy and he has recently devoted a significant portion of his time into cultivating that talent (And adding a little bit of moral stability into the young girls life).

War, he knew he was going to it, he knew he might have to kill but he didn't, couldn't understand what that meant till the time came and he was forced to pull the trigger. It had opened his eyes and burned away some of the childish out look he had maintain through out his life. It saddened him when he saw part of him die under that hot Esparian sun, but he doesn't regret it. No if he hadn't been there and done what he had to do more of his friends and country men would have died, so he would bare the stain he had placed on him self with pride and live with the fall out what ever that may be.

He had returned to his normal life after that fiasco of a battle, or at least tried to but he was haunted by the screams of the men he had killed, and by the firends he had watched die.It had been his fault really, and every day since he had beat him self over it. Still one bright light was keeping him almost fully in this world, and that was his family and his love of them. Though a new woman might have had something to do with that as well.

REVISE

Hey~ Welcome to MDA ^__^
This is a very well-written character! Just edit a few things:

1. Picture!! It's needed so add one. If you need help finding one, just ask people in the cbox or PM me or something.
2. Your grammar needs a little work *isn't / *didn't / *grandparents / *he's / *goes --Just spell check it a bit~ Commas are your friend lmao
3. History: Yeah, that's fine, but might I direct you Here~
4. Alchemic Ability: *Will o' the wisp ?? Okay first the loud noises and the color are two abilities. Also, light cannot be made from nothing. Why not go off the idea of bending light into vague shapes or something? Sounds also cannot come from nowhere. You can make the sound softly and then amplify it with alchemy. First, choose which one you want to do and then we can figure out how to make it work. When you get to level two, you can add the other ability, etc. PM me if you need help with this.
5. Trivia: for ROUENIAN make it clear that it's Gelemortian Dialect please~

Awesome ideas. I'm really excited to see this guy finished. ;D

Willow-The-Wisp or ignis fatuus which is medieval Latin for “foolish fire” is a ghostly light seen by travelers at night, especially over bogs, swamps or marshes. It resembles a flickering lamp and is said to recede if approached, drawing travelers from the safe paths. A folk belief well attested in English folklore and in much of European folklore, the phenomenon is known by a variety of names, including jack-o'-lantern, hinkypunk, hobby lantern in English. Scientifically, "marsh gas" is methane that bubbles out of marshes; this gas is contaminated with phosphine (PH3) and diphosphane (P2H4) which, when brought in contact with air, can spontaneously catch fire. This sudden burst of flame can potentially explain many will-o'-the-wisp sightings. I personally thought it made sense in the case of his ability.

Anywho XD ive gone through and made the changes you asked for^^

1. Since you now have a picture, make sure you Face claim him. Joker from Kuroshitsuji (http://www.zerochan.net/Joker+%28Kuroshitsuji%29) -- just enter that in at the bottom.
2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will-o'-the-wisp -- It's written 'will o' the wisp' No W, but since it's the name of your alchemic ability, I'm not going to harp on you if you spell it wrong...creative license ftw and all that shizz.

Your alchemic ability is good now! And you fixed everything really well, awesome!! It's pretty much approved~

APPROVED

Ok so NOTE: I don't know if his level up for alchemy is good or not, that is no longer my department. Alchemy/Alkahestry sections will be moved out of character apps so I'm not checking it. It's good that its already in your alchemy app. Changes will be made shortly. but you are good otherwise!
