GoA: Back Ref by resaki


"Take what you must, but be prepared for what comes with it."


Name: Bastien Vere
Gender: Male
Age: 24
Birthdate: November 8th
Height: 6'3"
Race: Human/Ondine (water spirit)
Birthplace: Sorgund
Hair Color: Blue
Eyes Color: Violet
Mana: Ice [Water + Air]
Weapon: Mana Blade
Position: Leading Officer [Thief Guild]


Likes: Training, strength, people watching, alcohol, shaved ice, looking at steam and smoke.

Dislikes: Hot places, disrespect, sarcasm (he can never pick up on it and gets paranoid at times because of which), feeling inferior or weak, people who are too confident, crowds, insects.

Hobbies: He spends a good amount of time looking at maps and cross referencing information to find potential locations of hidden treasures. Otherwise it's not rare to find him training or watching others train. It's rumored he’s a good singer, but it's not something he does often or upon request.

Abilities:
:bulletblue: Mana Blade: A sword hilt with the ability to focus mana into the form of a blade. It's strength relies on the strength of his mana (although being ice, it
s better for quick hits rather than power blows since it can break quite easily), and when in use it becomes gradually weaker and will even "collapse" when drained. Think of it like running out of SP/MP LOL.
:bulletblue: Ice Skating: Coating the floor in a thin layer of ice, enabling him to use his collapsible ice skate boots to glide across it, giving himself speed as well as making the playing field more difficult for opponents. Unfortunately, he can only coat small areas with ice at a time, plus it makes his sword weaker.

Personality: Similar to his element, upon first impressions with Bastien, one could easily describe him as being cold--and not just physically. He has a tendency to talk down to others or just be cruelly blunt at times, yet seems near impervious to any guilt or empathy with the people he potentially hurts with his scornful words or actions. It's not that he particularly enjoys hurting people, it's simply his method of making his peers stronger, so it's easy for him to dismiss it.

Upon getting to know him better, he almost always seems irritated or anxious, as if he's waiting for something. It's not uncommon to find him looking off as if staring at some far away thing no one is certain of. At times he hits a point that sets him in horribly bad mood; these times it being best to just try and avoid him. Normally, however, it's not easy to set his temper off--but once a line of disrespect has been crossed, he will be sure to put you back in your place in any way he sees fit.

Either way, he seems very closed off and prefers to not talk about himself or let people close to him. He believes all relationships are temporary and rather not waste his time with investing too much time or effort into them, but at times his troubles make him wish he were a bit better with social situations.

History: Bastien was born  in Sorgund to a human father and a water spirit as a mother, his father fulfilling his mother's wish of giving birth and thus getting a soul (an Ondine only being able to get one if they marry and bear a child). Their family lived off his father's questionable career: a consman. He claimed to only defraud the corrupt and wealthy, and despite his career was was quite the warm and caring person; these qualities being what his mother fell in love with.

While not as charismatic as his father, Bastien did grow up to pick up on his father's trade. He could lie with a straight face so well even his father found it difficult at times to tell whether or not he was telling the truth, but it was a trait to be proud about as far as he was concerned. Unfortunately, as the boy got older he noticed his mother was leaving the house less and less, and when he was fifteen he learned that she had contracted a mysterious illness that was slowly working its way through her, even though his parents denied it. Shocked and horrified, he secretly began conning any person he could manage to attain enough money to bring her to the most dignified doctor in Sogrund. After a couple years of conning the innocent and his mother's worsening illness, karma finally came to him. When he was finally so close to obtaining his goal, one of the not-so-innocent people he had conned in his past found him again; not happy, and this time with a group of friends. The seventeen year old took a heavy beating--awakening hours later to find the gang took back not only the money he had conned out of the one of them before, but all the rest he had been carrying with him, leaving him with barely enough to even pay for the traveling expenses needed to see the doctor.

Discouraged and angry, his personality turned for the worse; becoming cold and even bordering on cruel at times. He trained to become stronger and soon found himself working as a mercenary. His father grew concerned, but his mother insisted he was only frustrated and would find himself eventually. Soon he was working so often he was hardly home, and after finally being told that his mother had an illness there was no known cure for by his father, Bastien's visits home became even more sporadic. The now eighteen year old had a secret determination in him, and before moving to Neara on "business," he assured his mother he would find a cure for her.

Bastien spent a couple years in Neara still working as a mercenary loosely, doing any job he was suited for--often things best left unspoken. The money he earned was primarily spent paying for information on "treasures" hidden and spread out across the world. Following these paths, it wasn't long before he opted to join the Thief Guild for reasons he could only describe as "personal."

Fortunately over the years his personality has matured, and taking the position of a leading officer in the Thief Guild, he takes the role seriously--sometimes a bit too seriously, considering the general nature of the guild. He still comes off as distracted at times, however...

Other Facts
:bulletblue: He has an unusually low body temperature, bordering on freezing. He wears gloves because of which to avoid touching people and startling them or making them uncomfortable. Even the area directly around him is slightly cold.
:bulletblue: He can unintentionally turn liquids cold within seconds of making skin contact with them. If he keeps still against them, the liquid will even start to freeze (thus, he hates baths).
:bulletblue: He really wants to drink a hot cup of tea one day.
:bulletblue: Insects scare the hell out of him and if he can focus himself enough he'll use his Mana Blade to destroy them.
:bulletblue: HE'S IMMUNE TO PUPPY EYES DURHUR.

Relationships:
:bulletblue: Hasse Tyrhild They have a friendly rivalry relationship due to their parents being close friends, but sometimes they take it to extreme levels. It had been 9 years since their last meeting.
:bulletblue: TBA. Willing to work out other potential histories with characters since Bastien was in the business to meet a lot of people in his past, though. C: Just note me or MSN me if ya got any ideas.

Wow! Made him a thief. That's what I voted for but I felt bad since everybody else went for Magician...

Too typical? Is it that you have too many magicians? >_>;;

Besides, thieves are sexier.
