About the Character
Lance is an abrasive individual. He's stubborn and doesn't know any manners. All that Lance knows is how to be what others consider to be a brat. Since he had lost his parents at a young age, Lance is used to surviving on his own out on the streets which is why he lacks any discipline. He's street smart but tends to pick fights with others a little too much which can be dangerous considering there might some day be someone tougher than he had previously thought. His keyblade has made him rather arrogant since the weapon is powerful against Heartless and Nobodies. He doesn't realize that he's not as invulnerable as he thinks he is. He has no sense of morals and seems to have it out for those older than himself. He has no respect for others.
However, Lance's actions aren't just because of his lack of upbringing. His attitude is also because he has been left alone for so long. No one bothered with him or took him in. Although he won't admit it, Lance is resentful because no one had cared. When others do show that they care, however, he becomes more vindictive. It's as if the thought intimidates him and confuses him greatly. He doesn't know how to react to others who show that they care because he hasn't experienced it often enough and has a hard time understanding it. If someone were to make him feel humiliated and defeat him in a fight, Lance may show a less aggressive attitude toward them since they had given him something to be respectful toward. However, that doesn't change how he speaks to someone. There is hope for the boy, just not immediately since he's on the brink of going dark. With time, he could easily become more tame. He just needs to be taught how to act around others and have someone around that actually cares.
When Lance is faced with others, he tends to act indifferent to their insults, often laughing at their attempts before countering them with something else just as nasty if not better. He's always trying to prank others or get into some kind of trouble. He's a kid, without knowing any better, which is why he has this tendency. Just like most boys his age, he thinks that he's invincible when he's not which is dangerous because it causes him to do some pretty reckless things. He can be quite a handful if not watched closely. Although Lance acts all tough, he's still a kid and has child-like tendencies such as resorting to hiding behind others if he feels awkward or shy. Yes, Lance can get shy but it's not very common.
Lance has wild, unkempt and short but layered red hair. He has golden colored eyes. Being only just twelve years of age, Lance stands at just five feet in height. He weighs about 110 pounds. He has a thin figure but one that is slightly gangly, a sign that he's got some growing to do.
On the right side of Lance's face, there are three jagged scars. These scars are a permanent reminder that Lance had been beaten for his crimes before he got more advanced at it. The scars were caused from an intended slap to the face but the person throwing the slap had missed making impact when Lance had pulled back, a mistake on Lance's part since the nails had gotten his face instead. Now, Lance has these scars on his face for the rest of his life. He doesn't seem to mind them though.
For clothing, Lance doesn't really seem to care much for fashion. He just wears whatever feels comfortable to him at the time. However, he has sense enough to not go wandering out in public in just his underwear or in his pajamas. The colors he wears tend to vary.
However, one thing Lance seems to always wear is the dog collar around his neck. He had seen some adult with a choker on, that looked like a dog collar and when Lance found an abandoned dog collar, he had thought it was what that adult had been wearing. Thinking it was cool, Lance had put it on and has been wearing it ever since, unaware that it's a dog collar.

None yet. Profile shall be updated as his teachings go along and he learns more abilities.
Character Weapons (keyblade):
The Knight's Scythe Keyblade: Lance wields a keyblade of Twilight, the name of it still escapes him. It looks like this: th00.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2011/332/4/d/the_knights_scythe_keyblade_by_lrme87-d4hkp7y.jpg
Lance can be daring but that's also a weakness. He has street smarts which are pretty handy in a town or city setting. A master of pranking people, you'd think this not a strength but it is one of Lance's.
Lance is reckless, such reckless behavior can get him into trouble, sometimes worse than what he bargained for. He thinks he's invincible which is dangerous since he really isn't. He's inexperienced with his newly acquired weapon and could easily be beaten by someone more skilled than he is.
Mother: Lance never learned the names of his parents. He had been with his mother for a very short span of his life and what memory he had of their names have been buried with time. Lance, to this day, doesn't know how she got sick or why she had died. He hates her memory because he remembers the pain of losing her. He's resentful for her leaving him behind to survive on his own.
Father: Lance never met his father. He sometimes wonders what his father was like. His mom said he had given his life to protect her before Lance was even born. It was because of his father that Lance's mother was able to make it safely off their world to Traverse Town so that she could give birth to Lance. Lance sometimes wished he could have gotten to meet him once.
Lance was born in Traverse Town. His father had died from the invasion of Heartless that had infested his parents's world before Lance's mother had wound up in Traverse Town. His mother, although she had survived child birth, could not survive the illness within her that had been festering over the years as she raised Lance. She had been able to only spend seven years with her son before finally succumbing to her illness and dying in the middle of the night. Lance was left alone to fend for himself with nowhere to go, no known family to be with. Well, as far as he knew. Lance didn't know his last name very well and had eventually forgotten about it.
The seven year old boy had wandered out into the streets when he had been chased out of the home his mother had been keeping them in. Since there was no adult to attend to the bills and other matters that adults took care of, the debt collectors took the home. With no home to go to, Lance wandered the streets by himself. During that time, a change took over the once innocent boy. He had to survive since no one was going to take care of him. It was all up to him now.
That sort of realization is what had pushed Lance into thieving. He stole what he needed but the first tries weren't the best. He would get caught, chased, and even beaten for such things. Eventually, he learned how to avoid being caught. Since no one seemed to want to take the kid in, to teach him so he'd stop behaving that way, Lance had a life of no morals or discipline. He became a child delinquent.
As most cases, the darkness in Lance's heart grew to a point where the Heartless began to pick up on it. Although Traverse Town was for refugees, it wasn't entirely safe and free from Heartless. Only the First District was ever truly safe from Heartless and even then that wasn't entirely safe. Thankfully, those cases were rare in the First District.
While Lance had been wandering the Second District, he was suddenly surrounded by Heartless. The smaller sort known as Shadows. Of course, to a child as well as a normal person, such small fry could be just as dangerous as the larger ones. Lance ran for his life until they managed to corner him. Attacking in numbers is the speciality of the Shadows, after all. Not knowing of the strength of his heart despite the darkness tainting it, nor of what light and darkness was to begin with, Lance had thought for sure that he would have died right then and there as he threw his arms up to cover his face and make a vain attempt at protecting himself. It was then that it came to him.
In a flash of light, something had appeared in Lance's right hand. Feeling his hand gripping something that hadn't been there moments before, Lance opened his eyes to look in wonder at what he had found. It was a giant key of sorts fashioned as if it were a sword. Lance had never seen anything like it and yet the word had just popped into his head. This weapon...was a keyblade. The strength of his heart had called out to this weapon in his time of need and it had come to his aid. Seeing the weapon, the Heartless immediately shrunk back in surprise. Noticing the change in behavior of the creatures before him, Lance felt a tug at his arm. Looking down in surprise, Lance discovered the weapon was somehow alive, tugging at his arm as if urging him to fight. As if sensing this, the Shadows continued to shrink away as if frightened. Hope renewed, Lance charged the creatures and swung the blade. As he did so, it were as if something were guiding his swings. The weapon seemed to be teaching him how to use it but the movements were odd and jerky. Yet, Lance was proud of himself when the fiends left the area.
Lance has no idea just what he has gotten himself into. He thinks his life is going to remain the same. He doesn't realize that his life is on the very edge from going either path. Nor does he realize that his very weapon is reflecting that in its appearance, a weapon of twilight. Thanks to this very weapon, his keyblade, Lance has no idea how dramatically his life is about to change...
