Envy

Post by Envy on Sat Nov 06, 2010 1:00 pm

...........................................................................
CASE FILE: Homunculus

"Would I lie?"
...........................................................................

       FULL NAME:
       → Envy

       AGE:
       → 8

      SEX:
       → Technically neither. His base form at the moment is male, if that counts.

       BIRTH PLACE:
       → Father

       SPECIES:
       → Pure

      SIN:
       → Envy

       DATE OF BIRTH:
       → 14th September, 2005


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


       HEIGHT:
       → 180 cm (Usual height)

       WEIGHT:
       → 6 000 Kg

       PICTURE:
       →
Spoiler:





      DESCRIPTION:
       → It should be made clear at this point that Envy, as an individual, has no definite physical appearance. It's only natural that a being that can change its appearance at will will treat appearances like normal people treat clothes. But like some people have their favorite clothes, so does Envy have his preferred forms.

As such, his current "base form" is the following:

First off, the physical appearance. Envy has decided to make his hair green, because he finds a certain value of irony in it. The length of the hair is short overall, with slightly different lengths at front and back.

Envy wanted to make his eyes striking, which is why he didn't use green color again. Instead, he made them golden.


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


       PERSONALITY:
       → Envy has a scaling style to fight. If he sees his enemy weak enough, he lengthens the fight just to awake hopes of winning. And then crushing them after a little build up. However, if he sees his enemy stronger than him (which tends to be rare), he will make it clear that he will not lose. And does not hesitate relying on something that some humans call unfair. But he does want to kill with creativity. Because he can.

Envy's opinion of humans is quite simple. Enjoyable, but mostly useless. The word mostly has been added just recently after one of his encounters. Also, he has studied human behavior to the point where he could get a job as psychologist. He doesn't like being around them a lot and can be found from somewhere peaceful because of that reason. Only people he does like are other homunculi. They are his siblings, after all. Feelings towards human-based homunculi are determined by their personalities, because of their human part.

Envy has some features which make him different from the original one. He is much calmer, but can still be provoked by some insults. And when he is made angry, he certainly has hard time to calm himself down. So avoid that. Another unusual feature is fondness towards anything sweet. This is mostly towards candies and that kind of stuff. On the contrast, he enjoys to see people suffering. Quite a lot, actually. Sadistic tendencies towards humans have always been part of him.

Envy has his enviousness, which can be noticed if his behavior is observed long enough. Mostly this is manifested as not raising himself higher but as lowering others to the ground. Or even lower, depending on what he/she has/has done. This can also apply on homunculi too, if they do/acquire something very great. This has not happened yet and he kind of wishes that it never happens.

       LOVE:
       → Manipulation
       → Freedom to do what he wants
       → Suffering (of other people)
       → Anything sweet
       → Other Homunculi

       HATE:
       → Humans. (Unless they're useful. Then they're merely tolerable).
       → Pointless optimism
       → Bitter tastes
       → Peace
       → Insults towards him

DEEPEST SECRET:
       → Envy is, like his name suggests, envious. But towards what? Why humans, of course. Their ability to create meaningful bonds between each other seems to make them happy. Logical step from him would be destroying these bonds. Humans also have this great ''inner strength''. Solution? Crush it. And not only does anyone know it, he himself is denying it.

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

       HISTORY:
       → Envy was born in an underground chamber from flesh of Father. I don't go into details, as they are gross and disgusting. Moving on. From the moment Envy was born, he had all of his own traits with him. His loyalty towards Father was really small, but it didn't stop him from taking orders from him. He was given a fake name to disguise himself as a human, which was a thing he greatly hates. For first four years, he lived as a human. He needed to know how they thought, how they felt, how they reacted. It was sort of training. Riku also traveled in various other countries, to find out their thought process. Some of them were noticeably different.

Then his real job began. Manipulating people to make things go along Father's plan. Riku has been indirectly involved in some major conflicts, including Drachma's attack into the Briggs and the battle of the South City. On the first one, he spread some thoughts over Drachma. That it would be great idea to attack into Briggs. And the rest is history. Riku was a little disappointed on the latter one, as he was sent just to observe how things would go.

Being very surprised from Aerugo invading South City, Riku returned to the Central. Once he arrived, he had found out that Father has been defeated. While he didn't know how to react on that, he stayed in Central a few days. He tried to think, what he should do. And then he knew it. Riku would find some of his fellow Homunculi and form a plan. A plan for a mass destruction. His dream from never ending war. As Riku was good at reading personalities, he decided to find Greed first. His plan would probably satisfy some of his greed, which is why he would possibly agree with Riku's plan. Riku just doesn't know where he is...

Before he would be able to start off with his plan, Riku realized something. It would be suspicious, if someone would appear out of nowhere. No matter how much he would hate it, Riku would have to create a civil life. He started to think. Where was he good at. Army would notice something suspicious about him, so that wasn't an option. As he walked down the streets of Central City, he got his idea. You see, he walked past to a poster. Riku went closer to see what it was and his eyes widened from surprise. It was something about the role call for an act. Riku was excellent at acting, as he had been practicing for a while. With fake id's he went to get the main part and he was chosen. Riku was using his normal form in this, as he figured it would calm him down among those idiots. And so, he is practicing for his great premiere right to the spotlights. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Silver is on his way to fame.

Riku did have encounters with three homunculi. First ones were Wrath and Greed. He had a brief encounter with the first one, but concluded enough that he was no use. He seemed to care about humans. But Greed, with whom Riku had a proper meeting, seemed more like homunculus. He himself also had a plan. Riku agreed to help in it and did. But then he disappeared. Riku doesn't know what happened to him, but it didn't seem good. Third meeting with homunculus happened in a lighthouse in Creta. He was invited with a mysterious letter. And the inviter was mysterious herself. She claimed to be the eight homunculus. The conversation didn't go very far and he still doubts this information.

Riku's encounters with humans have also been limited into three individuals. All of which happened after the premiere of the play he was in. First one was this lovely young lady called Eclair de Dase. Riku remembers this human well. They had a little (and lethal) variation from hide-and-seek, where she actually managed to take one life away from him. Another reason why he remembers her is that she, despite from the fact that she knew what he was, showed an act of caring by kissing him. Riku hasn't met her again.

Two other encounters happened pretty much at the same time. His briefcase, were he kept his script, was stolen. That was very brief, as Riku was helped by two local militants. Jay Furor and Hei Bai. Encounter with them was a small one too. But it was made much more meaningful by Hei's hint that he was aware about who he was. That was a heavy strike. He had spent so much time on his role as an actor and then this one man came and shred all of it by few words. Envy quickly tossed away his favorite appearance and the name Riku Silver. His thoughts were now more focused on his earlier plans. He needed to think them with someone he could trust. And there was currently only one person who was even close to that...



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


       POWERS:
       → Envy's ability is perhaps the most widest one among the Homunculus. He can manipulate his body to take form of other people and to change his limbs into various kinds of offensive forms. At stage one, he is able to change his appearance and able to perform soft body manipulation. It means, that he can change things along with his body. For example. He can turn his fingers into claws or teeth very sharp. But he isn't able to extent his limbs, turn parts of his body into ''full'' weapons or make manipulations which aren't along with his body (Like spike out of his stomach).

Of, one note about his true form (Small, parasitic ugly green lizard-like thing). When he's all out of lives, Envy is forced into that form. All of his transformation powers are gone, but he still has one trick in his pocket. If he bites someone, Envy is able to take over their body (Demonstrated in canon).

At stage two, Envy gains further access to his abilities. You may have noticed, that Envy's weight has increased quite a lot. That simply indicates that he has acquired 1/3 of his original mass. This has increased his ability to stretch his body. His maximum reach while lengthening one arm is 24 meters. The reach is about six meters longer if he does the same with his finger. Ability to create weapons have also increased. However, creating them require more mass, which reduces his reach. A three-meter iron spike, of the wide of his arm, would use all of his mass.

Side note: Despite of his increased weight, his agility or speed aren't reduced a bit. However, his style of walking and running has changed. This is necessary if he doesn't want to smash everything under him (This enables to sit on chairs and things like that). Reckless actions, jumping or falling to the ground make it clear how heavy he is.

Added side note: This isn't an update, but more of a specification. Speed of the transformations. It takes about two seconds to transform his entire body. Larger or smaller amounts can be estimated from that.


Invidia: Trough experimentation and increased knowledge about his own abilities, Envy was managed to find a new use for his abilities. He has discovered how to essentially separate parts of him outside of his body. This is used to achieve something similar to cloning. These separate beings are nicknamed "Invidia" by Envy, for it is an alternative name for his sin.

This is how it works. To use this ability, Envy first needs to decide how many souls and how much mass he is going to give. Souls affect the regeneration. If Invidia has more than one soul, then they are able to regenerate like a normal homunculus can. Having only one soul makes the case very different. They cannot regenerate (although they can patch up wounds to a degree with shapeshifting), but they do gain an advantage. Alkahestrists are unable to sense them to be a homunculus, making them ideal for spying and infiltration. In addition, their mass does not disappear when disconnected from rest of the body (or when dying).

The amount of mass affects shapeshifting (and weight, if that wasn't already obvious). More mass means more versatile shapeshifting. However, this obviously means that they are going to be heavier, which has its own disadvantages.

Therefore, the two factors described above must be distributed properly according to the task that is wanted to be accomplished. When the amounts have been decided, Envy simply moves the necessary amount of philosopher's stone, along with necessary amount of mass, into the same area in Envy's body. After this has been done, Envy has to cut a connection between this part and the rest of his body. After this has been done, Invidia shall regain consciousness and will start to act according it.

The interesting thing about Invidia is that they practically are independent beings. They are copies of Envy and therefore they think in exactly same way as Envy does. This allows cooperation between them, as they can guess what the other ones are thinking or about to do. This is only in theory, as Invidiae gather differing information the longer they exist, which may in turn cause difference of opinions. This effect increases according to the amount of souls that Invidia possesses, being at its strongest at one soul. This problem is usually resolved by absorbing the Invidia in question.

Absorbing an Invidia back to the main body is a simple process. All that it requires is just a physical contact with Invidia (similar to Envy absorbing puppet soldiers in Brotherhood). This allows for lost mass and souls to be acquired back, along with additional memories formed during the time that Invidia was separated. This may sound like it's going to confuse Envy. And it does to a degree, but not as much as you'd think. The biggest issue is with the memories that occurred simultaneously, but in different areas.

Because this ability allows Envy to displace his mass outside of his body, it raises a question of whether or not he could use it to create objects as well. Answer to this would be: yes, but with limitations. A major drawback of this would be that the created objects would still have to contain a soul. This has two results. First of these is that the stone must be surrounded by organic mass. This isn't too big of an issue, because one soul doesn't create a large stone. Another drawback would be that if the object would be damaged in a way that would separate the stone from some part of the object, that part of the object would disperse into thin air. Envy is also limited to making objects that he knows how to make (ie. he's unlikely to create a gun or any other complicated piece of technology).


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


     TRIVIA:
       → Envy is able to mimic anyone. However, he needs few sample lines from the person in order to do so.
        → Envy also has great acting skills. He even worked as an actual actor at one point, due to a chance in circumstances, he had to drop that.
        → Envy is fluent at Aerugese, Cretan, Xingese, Drachman and Amestrian. This was part of his training, if he would have to deal with people in/from other countries. However, he doesn't speak Ishvalan. This is because he didn't thought that there would be anyone speaking it anymore. Lately, he has also learned basic Crieg, but he is nowhere near fluent.


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


       ALIAS:
       → Envy

       OTHER CHARACTERS:
       → Nope

      CREATOR'S COMMENTS:
       → First planned to be Pride, but seeing it has been taken, I go with Envy instead.

         Yes, I rephrased pretty much everything, but didn't really change anything I shouldn't have. Hopefully this was allowed.

       FACE CLAIM: None

REVISE

Welcome~
You only have a few things to fix:
1. Description has to be at least 150 words, so maybe just add a sentence or two about his mannerisms or his voice, etc.
2. Personality has to be at least 300 words, so you just need less than 100 more. How does he act towards humans? What does he do when he first meets someone. What is he envious of?
3. History has to be at least 450 words, so maybe add a little more about his life as a human?
4. Just a note for the future, Homunculus in plural is Homunculi. ^_^

About your plotting idea and to help you out with where all the homunculi are right now: Three (Pride, Sloth, and Gluttony) are thinking about assisting the Four Horsemen right now under Hild (the new fuhrer). Wrath is a neutral mercenary. Greed = ?. Lust is on hiatus.
