About the Character
Damien's a quiet and strong individual. He only goes by what he believes in and lets that rule his actions. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean what he believes in is right. From a young age, he was brainwashed into believing what he believes is the right way. Having it so hardwired into his sense of self, it's difficult for him to understand someone else's take on things. In fact, he is quite aggressive towards those who have different beliefs. In his eyes, what way he believes in is the right way and there is no other. It's because of this that he defends it so strongly. One could go as far as viewing him as being stubborn.
When Damien does speak, he can have an attitude about him. His ways are gruff and he doesn't care. Rarely does it bother him if someone is wounded by his words whenever he does give attitude. In his eyes, he speaks his mind and if no one likes it, well that's just too bad. All his life, Damien had to depend on himself and what his father had always told him growing up. He had never had a mother to take care of him. Always, it was his father who raised him by himself, teaching him what morals he believes in today. Having a strong sense of pride toward his father and looking up to him, Damien is blinded by the things he's doing under his father's word since he is so eager to receive his father's approval.
Once someone can get Damien to their side, he can be a very loyal friend. Sure, one that might give you a hard time now and then but one that would never back stab you. He has a flaw of being arrogant, so used to being appraised for the things he has done and thinking highly of his skill in battle. He hasn't quite yet learned humility in that sense. If anyone were to ever wake him up to it, he might feel ashamed and grow silent. Maybe even going as far as giving someone the cold shoulder for a while.
Truth is, if anyone were to look at Damien's upbringing more closely, they would realize his childhood had been rough. He hadn't exactly gotten the chance to enjoy what normal kids did. He didn't get to play or anything of that innocent nature. From a very young age, he was being taught how to survive and fight. Always, he knew nothing more than to kill or be killed. He has learned to not hesitate when it comes to killing someone if it means for the good of the cause he and his father believe in. He has no idea just how mentally hardwired he has become and has no idea that he was raised to become a deadly weapon. Not once has he stopped to think for himself and what he wants to do. He's just so focused on what he had been taught that nothing else seems to matter. He doesn't realize he's doing the wrong thing even if it means for the benefit of the good. He just thinks he's saving everyone and the worlds and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.
So, this is where his character gets complicated. Before he knows how others feel, he can seem somewhat approachable. It's when he gets talking that others realize they're speaking to someone who has had a rough life. He tends to always never let someone get near enough to know him. He treats them as a nuisance or simply tries to brush them off with a comment or brushes off any conversation with someone. Damien refuses to let anyone in. His only focus is his goal, nothing else. Others, he view as a distraction and doesn't try to allow distractions that are more than he can tolerate. Which, considering how he is, is not by much.
His biggest pet peeve is someone trying to analyze him as if he's something one could understand. When he encounters people like that, he can get pretty offensive. It annoys him to think there are people out there that believe they can read some people like a book. He finds it insulting, especially if what is said turns out to be true. He doesn't like his shortcomings being brought out in the open for all to see.
Damien puts himself through a lot of hardships when it comes to attaining his goal. At times, he can work himself to exhaustion because he never gives himself any rest. There is no rest when there is so much work to be done.
Other than that, there are odd moments where he surprises someone and actually acts decent. Usually, he's much gentler when it comes to children. Children remind him of a time when he was helpless.
Damien has midnight black hair with a white shine to it that makes it look as if his hair were almost onyx. It's short, layered and wild. Damien tries to tend to it a little but certain strands just stick out in odd places.
Much like his kin before him, Damien has bright blue eyes. His complexion is fair, almost pale. As far as height goes, Damien is five feet and eight inches tall. Weight wise, having been trained at a young age for battle, he is built as a fighter but not so much so that he's being completely weighed down by pure muscle. If one were to compare him to what sort of body type, they could consider him as something like a runner or a swimmer at best. It's because of this figure that he is quick on his feet.
For attire, considering his position, Damien is adorned in garments that signify he is some sort of soldier. His attire consists of what is shown above in the image. He wears shoulder guards that protect his shoulders and extend to halfway down his biceps. The shoulder guards are a dark grey. Since he works under the four main figures of the activist group he is a part of, Damien is dressed as the way he is because he's only just one step below them. One would think such a step is not much but it is more serious of a step above him than one would think.
So, he is dressed like what one would expect of some sort of captain or general almost or like a wild card. before the heads must get involved. Due to that, the only thing on him that is allowed to appear ragged is his cape. It was once white on top but has grayed with wear and tear aside from tearing at the edged. On the portion that actually meets his back at the shoulders, the cape is red but somewhat faded.
Upper attire, other than the shoulder guard, he wear a dark blue tunic with white buttons buttoning his tunic before him at the yellow trimmings. He also wears black gloves and a blue arm band on his left wrist. Bottom attire, he wears what appears to be something like upper leg guards. He normally wears loose black pants but because of his long, knee high brown leather boots that he uses to enable him more speed, they appear as if they are puffing out a little.
Character Position: Hero
Quick on His Feet: As the ability suggests, Damien is naturally quicker than the average human being. If one were to consider how much faster, he is around 15% faster. That means, he's not running cheetah speed but he is naturally 45 mph instead of the usual 35 mph. So, only a tad faster. Passive
Soldier: Damien was trained at a young age to fight like a soldier. Today, he is adept in battle with a sword. Agility and flexibility accompany this, his agility explained above. Passive.
Water Gun: It's not really a weapon, it's just that Damien forms a hand like a gun with the pointer finger serving as the gun's nose. He only holds out one hand pointing his finger at someone when he does this. Once he pulls his thumb forward to signify the trigger being pulled, a small stream of water shoots out from it. The water reaches at least six feet in length straight in the direction he pointed to. 1 post cool down.
Geyser: A puddle will form under someone for one post. If they don't notice and don't get out of the puddle fast enough, a small pillar of water will erupt from that tiny two foot wide puddle. The pillar of water reaches five feet in height and only shoots upward. 2 post cool down.
Water Slash: A general warning sign that Damien is about to use this is when his hands seem to be dripping wet. When that happens, Damien is able to slash out at an enemy as if he had claws. The water that extends from his fingers that is thrown from the momentum of the swing of his arm arches like that of a blade and has the potential to cut through someone's skin if they don't dodge it. The water only extends from him two feet in front of him. 2 post cool down.
Tidal Wave: Damien can call forth a tidal wave anywhere. The wave, he has enough control over to permit him keeping it from crashing onto him or an ally. The wave itself is only seven feet in height and it is as wide as eight feet. The wave only goes in one direction when it's called forth. Can use this ability twice before going into a 4 post cool down.
Whirlpool: Damien will spray mist into the air to the point where it becomes like a fog. Once this is done, which the process takes one post to ready, Damien sends this fog at the enemy. It's able to home over someone's head for two posts. Once two posts are reached, regardless of where the fog is floating, it will release three streams of water that encircle to form a tornado made only of water. This tornado doesn't suck anything into it unless it's in the very center of it. The enemy has to be underneath to get caught in this whirlpool. The whirlpool has a two post limit before it must cool down for three posts. People can avoid it as long as they get out from under the fog.
Monsoon: If Damien finds himself in an enclosed area, he is able to create a rainstorm so bad that it would take just a total of three posts to fill the immediate area up with water. The downside to this ability is that it's so powerful that he can't quite control it well enough. Damien's always at risk of drowning himself and allies along with his enemies if he's not careful. This ability he pretty much uses as a last resort or to escape and give his foes a distraction. Monsoon stops after three posts and goes into a six post cool down. Ability takes great concentration so is easily distracted from casting a successful Monsoon. Signs he's about to try this is when the clouds in the sky suddenly become gray and stormy looking.
Portalling: With this ability, Damien is able to teleport from one area to another. It doesn't matter whether it be a different world or a set distance. Only uses this for traveling means and evasive actions.
Water Immunity: Since he uses water to fight with, Damien is naturally immune to water attacks.
Weaker Fire Damage: Since Damien uses water to fight with, fire doesn't hurt him as much as it would a normal person that isn't water based. It still, of course, hurts but the damage is less severe than it normally would be.
Broadsword: It's a simple looking broadsword but it can survive a lot of magical abuse. In the center of the metal of the blade, there is a long yellow stripe running up and down it. Damien can summon this to his hand at will.
Mode of Transportation: Portals
Character Strengths: The water element is Damien's strong point as well as his training as a soldier since a young age.
Character Weaknesses: Earth element or electricity would be Damien's weak point. He doesn't have an easy time of seeing another's viewpoint in beliefs and can be problematic.
Character Home World: Damien doesn't know but he has been living on any world his father goes to.
Great Grand Aunt: Ivory "Quentin" Stark
Great Grand Uncle: Marcus "Smiles" Stark
Great Grand Father: Darius Quentin
Great Grand Mother: Alicia "Cullen" Quentin
Grandfather: Darien Quentin
Grandmother: The rest to his family tree is smudged out as if someone didn't want you to see the rest.
Family Update: What was revealed above is actually false. Damien's true heritage is as follows though he doesn't know who they really are just yet.
Great Grand Father: Marcus "Smiles" Stark (deceased)
Great Grand Mother: Ivory "Quentin" Stark (deceased)
Great Grand Uncle: Darius Quentin (deceased)
Great Grand Aunt: Alicia "Cullen" Quentin (deceased)
Grandfather: Johnathan Stark (unknown whether he's dead or alive)
Grandmother: Leonah "Williams" Stark (unknown whether she's dead or alive)
Father: Unknown (unknown whether he's still alive or not)
Mother: Unknown (unknown whether she's still alive or not)
Father: Ivan Quentin: Damien greatly respects and admires his father. He would do anything to appeal to his father just to receive approval from him. The man had turned him into a fighting machine since an early age. Their relationship, at best, wasn't anything like a son and father should be. In fact, it's a reason why Damien is so motivated to appeal to his father. It's to get his attention and the only way he knows how to. He doesn't understand why his father is so distant with him or why he's so gruff. All he knows is that the activist group he's a part of along with his father, everything depends on it from what he is told by his father and Damien believes his every word. Damien has always obeyed orders by his father and hasn't once stopped to think for himself for he doesn't even have enough time.
Father Update: Damien's father isn't actually his father. Ivan had revealed that Damien's surname isn't that of Quentin but actually that of the Starks. Due to the way Ivan treated Damien, he now despises the man with every fiber of his being. Damien is now doubting his position in the Order and whether or not it's worth even staying.
The Order of the Destroyer: An activist group that is believed to be associated with the Emperor. Damien's father is one of the four heads of the higher ups which are just below the proclaimed destroyer. It's uncertain who the destroyer is, for it's not the emperor that some think it to be. All that's known is that their activist group is doing underhanded things to achieve their goals for the "better good". Claiming what they're doing, even though it seems like they must destroy, is creating a better future for the worlds. Having had their morals driven so deeply into his conscience, Damien doesn't see what's wrong with this group. The other three members he hasn't met but two are men and one is female as far as he knows. His father hasn't really told him much about them other than that.
Damien doesn't remember who his mother is. His father raised him as a baby. His father never told him what had happened to her. As soon as he could walk and talk, Damien went through a rough childhood. His father, though he had raised him, treated him like a stranger. He had been around to teach him to walk and talk but once those were learned, Ivan went into a regime of training for Damien. Damien hadn't a real childhood like a normal kid should have had.
All his life, Damien was taught about the "Order of the Destroyer". It was an activist group that his father was one of the four heads of command to. Ever since he was little, Damien's father hardwired it into his brain that in order to save the worlds things had to be destroyed before a nicer future for the remaining five worlds could be created. Not having had much affection from his father, Damien strove to do his best in everything his father put him up to no matter the task. Whenever he did good, he was praised for it and that was the only way that Damien could receive some acknowledgement of his existence from his father. However, his father only viewed him as a soldier and never a son. Always, he kept Damien at a distance and never allowed him to get close.
Never the less, as any child would do, Damien always did what he could to try and receive praise for the things that he did. Where he did have errors, he learned fast to not have much error again. His father only made his training much harsher when he failed at a task. Almost always, Damien was going through rough training as a kid. Throughout the years, he didn't once stop to think for himself being so busy trying to appeal to his father's ideals.
Before long, Damien had grown into the soldier that Ivan had raised him to be. Damien did things without question and left little room for error. Always, he was on top of his game no matter what. It was because of this that Damien had earned a name for himself but titles didn't mean nothing to him and neither did fame amongst his peers. He was something equivalent to what a Captain was but the level didn't phase him. All Damien cared about was pleasing his father. His father never seemed to acknowledge Damien's major achievements and always held him at a distance. Even when Damien turned Captain level, his father acted as if it were nothing. Damien still doesn't understand to this day how to get his father's attention but hasn't had time to think on anything for himself considering all of the things he's been sent out to do.
Damien now travels the worlds, their current position on Land of Dragons, seeking to carry through what tasks he's sent out on in hopes that one day, he could actually have a normal father and son relationship.
