About the Character
Alistair is usually a calm and composed individual...usually. However, there are those that can push him off the deep end and cause him to explode. As a prince, he's taught how to be well mannered and poised. For the most part, he treats others with respect but at a distance. He always seems to have a wall up to prevent others from getting close to him. However, when it comes to children, Alistair cannot seem to keep distant. He will never admit it but he does have a soft spot for children. His weakness, especially, is when they use the puppy dog eyes on him. Alistair can be very stubborn when he wants to be.
When it comes to someone that Alistair truly despises, he is often one to resort to childish behavior or making snide remarks about the individual. Sometimes, he will even engage in pranks to make the individual's life a little more miserable. Surprisingly, Alistair is not a killer. He may hate someone but even he has enough self restraint to know enough whom is worth killing and whom is not. If you take an attempt on his life, you can bet that he would try to kill you in return. Alistair really despises Riley for marrying his sister. It's not the fact that Riley married his sister that Alistair hates, it's the fact that Riley's already married to other women that angers Alistair since he was brought up on principles where if one was to marry it was to be a monogamous marriage and not a polygamist one. That and Alistair was always taught loyalty to one's spouse. He hates the fact that Riley gets around.
Alistair is content just being a prince. He has no aspirations to become a king and would rather let his sister rule the kingdom they rule over. Iris's word tends to be law but when it's something that Alistair doesn't agree with, he tends to rebel. Of course, only when it comes to something pertaining to Riley, otherwise Alistair normally listens to his sister.
Truth be told, Alistair hates the idea of having all responsibility falling onto him. Considering all the discipline and formalities he had to endure as a child, Alistair just wants to enjoy his youth while he still can. Often times, he will actually sneak out of the castle under the guise of someone else. Where in the castle, he seems like a stiff, outside of it he can actually let loose and do whatever he pleases, acting like a normal person for once. Due to his habit of leaving the castle here and there, it has driven his servants a little crazy trying to find him in a hurry before Iris finds out.
Much like his elder sister, Alistair has pointy ears. He stands at six feet in height and weighs about 135 pounds. He always carries himself well poised, making it obvious that he is of royalty. As for build, Alistair is well toned in his abdomen and arms. Thanks to his training from when he was young, Alistair is at the peak of fitness. Of course, naturally that is. He's not built like some sort of muscle head.
Upon his brow, Alistair wears a crown on his head with very light, yellowish green opals embedded in it as the décor. He's almost never seen without it except when he travels out into the city alone or if he gets into a fight. He has short, wavy white colored hair. Much like his crown, someone thought it right to decorate the crown with opals the same color as his eyes, Alistair has bright, light yellowish green eyes. On his right cheek, he seems to have what looks to be a sort of dark, leafy green colored tribal looking tattoo. In actuality, it's just some sort of face paint he wears since he isn't allowed to have actual tattoos on his body.
As for attire, he tends to wear clothing in greens, blues, white and deep purples. He's always seen with a cape of either of those colors. Unlike his sibling, he's not as decked out in armor as she is. However, the tunic he tends to wear is a form of mail in disguise so that foes think he's vulnerable and would go for his navel or heart rather than his head. On his wrists, he wears two silver colored coifs that protect his forearms from harm and his wrists. His legs also wear silver colored leg guards as well as plated covering over his boots. He has shoulder guards that are also silver in color.

Character Position: Hero
1. Flamethrower: Alistair holds out his hand with his palm held open and his fingers flexed out. From his hand he is able to shoot forth a burst of flame like a flamethrower in any direction he aims his hand at. The flames reach seven feet away from him. 2 post cool down.
2. Martial Arts: Due to his extensive training from when he was a child, Alistair is able to defend himself unarmed if there's ever a need. Passive.
3. Swordsmanship: As a child, Alistair was also taught how to fight with the swords. He is most adept in sword fighting as opposed to martial arts. Passive.
4. Healing Light: Alistair will gently place the butt end of his sword on an ally's forehead or his own to heal them from minor to moderate injuries. 3 post cool down.
5. Sword Shield: Alistair, when fired at by regular projectiles, can twirl a sword of his really fast to shield himself from the projectile. Of course, this can't protect him from magical attacks and it's not fool proof so Alistair has to be careful how and when he uses this. Since he doesn't want to risk damage to his wrists from over using this, Alistair limits himself using this 3 times before he goes into a 3 post cool down.
6. Golden Aura: As the name suggests, an aura surrounds Alistair giving him a majestic, golden sheen. After 3 posts, Alistair's appearance changes to some extent. His eyes turn blood red and his hair becomes well, golden. When this happens, Alistair becomes as swift as a cheetah and his strength increases about 50%. His endurance is also 50% stronger. This form lasts until Alistair falls unconscious or defeated or uses Flash Bomb.
The following abilities are accessible because of "Golden Aura".
6. A. Golden Beam: Alistair's blades become covered in a golden light. When he slashes with either one, he is able to send a beam of golden light at his enemies that reaches ten feet in any direction that he slashed in. When this light touches the enemy, if it does, it will feel as if they were just slashed by a sword with the addition of red hot flames. Moderate damage. 3 post cool down.
6. B. Reign of Fire: Keeping one sword in front of him pointed in the direction of his enemies, Alistair will raise his other blade into the air straight up. A golden light will shoot forth from it into the heavens above. The light will then illuminate the sky briefly. When it fades out, fire balls will rain down from the sky at enemies and allies alike. A risky attack but great for crowd reduction. 5 post cool down
6. C. Flash Bomb: Alistair will start to glow very brightly in gold. A sign that this attack is going to happen. It takes a post before he's done illuminating himself and then releases an explosion that reaches out around him at 10 feet. Anyone caught can receive moderate to serious damage the closer they are to him if they are hit. Once this occurs, this attack, Alistair returns back to normal and falls out of Golden Aura state and will not be able to transform back in the same battle. This ability is often used as a last resort.
Dual Blades: Unlike Iris, Alistair cannot wield any keyblades. However, he is quite adept at using the swords to his advantage in battle. These weapons are exact mirrors of each other. Both reach to at least four feet in length and are double edged making it easier to cut any foes he comes across. These blades are slightly curved in the middle. On the hilt, there are matching light yellowish green Opals. These blades are said to endure a lot of strain and are even magical. [Abilities used with these swords provided above in abilities section.]
Ryu: Not a true summon, since Alistair never uses him in battle but this is the small, serpentine dragon that follows him everywhere. This little dragon is a baby air dragon and is Alistair's faithful pet. It's much too young to protect him, not that Alistair needs it, but it does other things like fetching mail to and from Alistair as well as finding friends for him to alert them of something or vice versa.
Character Racial Ability: Immortal...to an extent: Due to the world from which his race hails from, Alistair is gifted with long life. He can only die by normal means such as murder, starvation and the like but not ever from old age.
Character Strengths: Alistair's strength rests in his swordsmanship, martial arts and his Gold Aura abilities.
Character Weaknesses: Alistair is not able to settle his differences with Riley which can be hindering, shirks his duties as royalty which means he holds less responsibility for things, can be stubborn, not as nearly as powerful as his sister.
Iris "Valence" O'Malley: Alistair's elder sister. She is to be the ruler of the kingdom and is married to Riley O'Malley. Alistair cares a lot about his sister and mostly obeys whatever orders that she gives him...so long as nothing pertains to Riley. The only time Alistair rebels against Iris is if she tries to order him to do anything with Riley.
Riley O'Malley: Alistair's brother-in-law. Once, before Riley married his sister, Alistair got along with him. Now that he's married to Iris and Alistair discovered the way that Riley is, he hates him. His sister thinks he only "somewhat dislikes" Riley but Alistair hates him. He can't stand him at all. However, he will never actually kill him or do him serious harm.
Hanna O'Malley: Alistair's niece from the future. Surprisingly, despite her being Riley's daughter born from Iris in the future, Alistair dotes over her. Like the doting uncle that he is, Alistair spoils her.
Ryu: Alistair was given the baby dragon when Alistair turned 96. He's Alistair's only real friend whom he confesses many things to. This type of dragon isn't like those from Yuio and although intelligent, is unable to speak and is not as intelligent as the other dragon races that wander Yuio. This one's species is said to be more wild, primitive and feral. He is an air dragon but is much too young to be involved in any fighting. Alistair is fond of him although he tends to not show it around others.
Alistair was born to the Valence family in Yuio two years after his elder sister, Iris was born. They were royalty. Childhood had been pleasant. Alistair would play with his elder sister from time to time if she wasn't busy tormenting him like all elder siblings did to their younger siblings. Much like every member of his family, Alistair was gifted with powers. However, his were nothing compared to Iris, whose heart was bright, pure and strong. It was because of this very fact that Iris was often sought out by the Heartless. After one nasty Heartless invasion in the kingdom, Iris fell extremely ill. Alistair worried for his sister's life and tried everything he could to try and comfort her but all efforts were for naught.
It wasn't long before the Goddesses of their world came before them. It was then said that the family needn't worry and that Iris would live. Their family, including Iris, would play a major role in saving the universe. Alistair wasn't sure what that meant but he didn't feel like being that important. Never the less, he was relieved that Iris would live. As the Goddesses revived the light in Iris's heart, Alistair's life became rather busy. Only but a year after his sister started her training in the martial arts, so did he. He was also taught the importance of his role as a prince and what it meant. What had once been a happy childhood became a not so happy one for Alistair. Unlike Iris, Alistair didn't want to do much with being royalty. He just wanted to be a normal kid and play with others. Since Iris had become just as busy, there wasn't really anyone for Alistair to play with. Having no real friends, since the Valence family didn't initially trust the other royal families at first, Alistair became more reserved and resentful toward being a prince. By the time that the Valence family became more friendly with the O'Malleys and O'Days, Alistair didn't really associate with them although he did respect them. At age twelve, he would sneak out and play with the children out in the city. He trusted in his sister to be the one to lead them. It was only natural considering she had been the firstborn. Alistair was fine with not becoming king and his sister becoming queen one day.
Eventually, there came a time when Iris was old enough and had married into the O'Malley family. At first, Alistair was happy for his sister. It wasn't until Alistair found out that Riley, much like the other males of the O'Malley family, proved to be just like the rest of them. Alistair came to hate him for every new individual that Riley had been with. How his sister could ever be fine with being married to someone who was already married to multiple people, and even been with that many people, was beyond Alistair. Never the less, he hated Riley and ever since then, Alistair's always had a grudge against him for being married to his sister. Still, Alistair would never try to kill Riley. Like it or not, Riley was considered family and boy did he hate it. Alistair, whenever Riley was around, would make snide remarks or leave the room.
Then came the fall of Yuio. It had been a hard time for the Valences but Alistair did what he could to survive with his family. They had no home for a time until the arrival of Derio, whom had been a good friend of the family brought back from the dead, claimed that there was a New Yuio being built. According to Derio, it would be better than the original. It was because of this that the Valences came to the New Yuio. With the help of their in-laws, the O'Malleys, the Valences were able to build a kingdom again and were able to rule and live there.
When Alistair turned 96, he had been given a dragon egg. It was said to be an air dragon, one of the primitive and more feral species. If the dragon inside liked Alistair, it was said it would hatch for him. That very same night he received the egg, the dragon had hatched for Alistair. At first, he had thought it an intruder in his room and was about to kill whatever was making the noise and had landed on him while he had been slumbering. When he found himself looking directly into the face of a baby dragon, Alistair had calmed. First seeing the dragon, Alistair was immediately attached to the little creature and named him, Ryu. Afraid to let anyone see just how much he liked the dragon, Alistair often appeared indifferent to the dragon when others were around. However, Ryu was his best friend.
Eventually, Iris had gone off with Riley on an adventure. Alistair was left behind. Every waking moment, during the time that Iris had been gone, Alistair would look outside at the castle grounds and search for any signs of their return. He was worried something would happen to Iris, and although being forced to take her place should she die played a part in his worry, Alistair's worry was mostly for Iris's sake. He didn't want his sister to die. When they returned and the family found out that Iris was able to wield keyblades, the family was overjoyed. What the Goddesses said proved to be true. Yet, Alistair still often wonders what is about to come their way. It always seems to loom over everything in a dark, almost forgotten shadow.
