Rhett

The ambitious, extroverted operations manager who tragically misunderstood an alien custom.

207 views · last seen in Gambit's Bar
a character in “The Multiverse”, originally authored by Guest, as played by Prose

Description

Standing at an even six-feet tall, Rhett weighs approximately around 185 standards (lbs) with lean muscle clinging to his body. Gold hair adorns the top of his head only to be complimented with striking green eyes which are more warm than intimidating. Balanced lips are quick to smile at anyone, especially a female as well, the man is Altan, and any female that is not Altan is exotic and fascinating to them. His skin is not as pale as the others for Rhett was the very first to step foot on the planet of Terra in the Multiverse to "test the waters" so to speak for the rest of the crew. It gave him a bit of a tan to spend all that time under the sun, and he loved every minute of it.

Unlike Monika, Casper, and Kohrii, Rhett is completely normal aside from his womanizing ways, concerning his health. He's taken very good care of himself and of his body, and was dealt a lucky hand when it came to passed on genetics at birth. If anything, his only mental weakness would be his confidence. But he means no harm really.

Unlike the crew of the Altas, Rhett generally tends to wear slacks and a nice sweater instead of a jumpsuit now. It seems that the man is becoming quite used to being planet-side inside of couped up on a starship. He loves Terra no matter how harsh she is, and will most likely stay behind if the Altas ever decides to leave. Perhaps this has become his home.

Personality

Ah the typical womanizer, but he really doesn't mean to be such. It's not his fault that ever since the man was born, Rhett was stuck in the hull of a ship for his entire life and forced to study, study, study, to become to best of his profession. So, in saying, the man is smart but when it comes to dealing and conversing with others that are not Altan, Rhett just doesn't get it. The man tries though, and he tries unashamedly to capture himself a good woman. Not only just good looking, but one with intelligence and heart. Rhett seems like he's not the type of man that a woman would want, but deep down inside there is a man that really wants to take care of another as best he can, and love someone more than anyone could ever love another.

In short, Rhett is the romantic womanizer who is just ignorant. Just like that time when the Altas had docked to refuel and restock... He rather not talk about it, but as his writer, I believe I have the right to spill his secrets.

As said, the Altas had stopped at a stationary spaceport fortress named Opyhlla, where many races of creatures and beings were allowed to roam free under peaceful actions. Most were there to do the same as the Rhett and gang; to gather themselves up and rest for a bit from the arduous journey through space. There were casinos and restaurants there, all sorts of sights to see to one's heart's desire. It was grand and fascinating for Rhett, who was eighteen at the time; just turned a man according to "Old Earth" standards which had still stuck to human society. There he met a most lovely woman, beautiful beyond words, and just aw inspiring. He knew right then and there as Rhett saw this alien creature—she was so beautiful there was no way she was human—that he was going to love her. And he did fall in love, but it was a fool's love; a young love.

All night Rhett stalked this woman, too nervous to speak to her, but the creature had noticed him and smiled. His heart almost pounded out of his chest, and he was sure that he was going to have a heart attack as soon as she approached him. Actually, Rhett almost fainted the poor dear when she did. They spent the night together after that; she finding him to be attractive and highly humorous, which she adored. Soon enough they were heading to Rhett's room in order to spend some "alone time" together without the prying eyes of the Altans. Short story coming to a close, apparently the "female" was really a "male" alien entity, who once a year, dressed as a beautiful woman in order to attract a male drone to his Queen in order for that captured male to impregnate her. It's a good thing Rhett saw the awkward anatomy and ran for his dear life; not because his life was in danger, but because that female had really been a male.

He's never been the same since, and doesn't like his sexuality challenged.

History

2063, America is no longer a world power yet still struggling to regain what has been lost for fifty years now. China has overtaken the Earth as the new super power; military, economically, and politically. Nuclear weapons are being mass forged in order to maintain this position over the world, while American and European scientists of Specialized Genetics, Metova Corporation are secretly meeting in the wastelands of the freezing Arctic in order to develop a genetically selective biological virus. They are successful after twenty years of mutating and bending the very laws of creation, in order to preserve the pride they all once had as Super Nations. The laboratory is infiltrated however, by Chinese spies, and the virus is incomplete before it is apprehended. To punish European and American states and provinces, the Chinese drop four nuclear weapons in order to maintain their worldly position. Crops die, the sky darkens with ash, people begin to die from radiation poisoning. The world as they knew it then was dying and it seemed as if the end was near, but not because of the nuclear fallout. Four years after the Chinese had taken the EX-5249 virus, uncompleted and still in the testing stages, they attempted to warp it from their own genetics to the other races.

God had become Human

In a laboratory spill, the virus was unleashed, allowing it to spread rapidly. The Chinese were foolish enough to believe that only their bloodline would be immune to the EX-5249 virus. They were wrong. They were the first to die the slow and gruesome, painful, decay that the virus exacted on its victims. Soon enough the entire Asian Nation was destroyed, while EX-5249 crept towards the European Nations. With the world in complete chaos, Australia had closed it borders indefinitely, always remaining a neutral party to all wars since the last and final Afghanistan War (they had finally developed a suitable army and had made treaty with America to tip the scale). White, Black, Yellow, Reds ... no matter the skin color, they all began to fall to EX-5249, yet a few handful of scientists and military officials, along with a good portion of the more "reputable" civilians, who had survived the previous fallout, were allowed in the isolated island of Australia. There ships were taken to Earth's moon where a secret and underground station had been built for such an Apocalypse by surprisingly, the Canadians.

Project Altas was originally called Project Atlas, after the Greek Mythological God who carried the World upon his back, but after the mispronunciation of it during a HoloCom conference by Dr. Arostimi Tcheva of AH Global Cybernetics, induced the change to Altas. While under the protection and security that the Moon's surface had to offer, another mass ship was being built, Altas in order to find a new Earth to begin life over and anew. It took two hundred years in order to complete the first stage of the project; building the ship. Another twenty was needed in order to properly stock it with the necessary survival means along with genetic codes and embryos to transport animals' and bacterial DNA to the new earth. And while the Earth's crust turned brown and then black beneath its only natural satellite, Luna, the descendants of those that had survived two hundred and twenty years ago, fled into Outer Space in order to seek out a new home.

Triton, New Earth was found fourteen generations later tucked away in the very back of the Kohrii system, so very far away from human's original home. Native Flora and Fauna flourished without intelligent life upon the lush and beautiful blue planet. Where Earth was green, Triton was blue, thus its namesake from Poseidon's famous three-pronged pike; the prongs representing the three continents it held. It was Eden, and Paradise found; Utopia finally grasped. Altas, landed upon the welcoming bosom of Triton and settled in easily to make colonies that held no prejudice nor hate for color of skin or ethnic backgrounds of the people. In two generations, there would only be one race: Altan. They prospered and lived in total, balanced peace after learning a great lesson from the intense history education received on the Altas.

However, Forty-Two Earth years later (Twenty-Two Triton years), a lurking parasite had finally reared up to show its terrifying face. Sleepers, it was named as the foreign and advanced biological make up of these bacterial like creatures struck without being noticed. Those that were afflicted and deemed as suitable host bodies by Sleepers did not know they were invaded and captured by the entity. It gave more reason and cause to their name. Altans who succumbed to the control of Sleepers murdered, raped, and committed suicide without a single notice. Mother, Child, Husband, it did not matter who was chosen by the alien, they would indulge in these horrible crimes, shattering the once-perfect Utopia. A portion of the population boarded Altas XI, and left Triton behind, not wanting to fall victim and be mercilessly tortured by watching all they cared for be ripped to shreds before their very innocent eyes.

They made way back to the Sol System and found Terra.

So begins...

"What the devil is that thing?"

Rhett had spotted the hovering skull near two impossibly gorgeous ladies, Ori and Odgerel. Not that he would admit that though. Unlike Casper, Rhett knew when to keep his mouth shut. The man walked towards the both of them, arrived, and then attempted to push the thing away from the two ladies.

"Alright, alright. Enough with the creepiness, skull-thing-creature-deal. Ah, excuse me girls, just preserving your privacy." Even though he was intruding it, but it was for a good cause after all.

"Ah shit, it's the A.I."

The man maneuvered his way through the crowd, and nodded to all those that were concerned of the android.

"Hey there ain't no need for all of that. She ain't gonna move if there's a rule. We don't have her all fixed up yet, so... makes me wonder why it's here."

The man opened a panel on her shoulder and read out some diagnostics.

"Nah, not a mechanic, just another ComTech from the Altas," Rhett said to Cryoface while giving him a friendly smile of sorts.

Directive: Return to Altas immediately and report to sector S-143.


"There she goes," he commented while the A.I. system complied with command.

Rhett was almost run over by a limping woman who seemed to not be so happy at the moment. He watched her for a moment before poking Kohrii, who was fast asleep at the table he stood near.

"Eh, best to not wake her. Her and Cas got into a bad fight."
"I heard that you and Cas got into a big fight."
"I don't want to talk about it Rhett."
"Why the hell not?"
"It's not your business."
"You always this clammed up? No wonder everyone on the Altas thinks your a bitch, Monika."

"Yeah, pretty sure that I really don't care about that right now, Rhett."
"Well you should. Everyone looks up to you, you know."
"Honestly, want to end up like Cas did this morning? Running out of here crying like a woman? Move along now."

Monika waved her hand in a dismissive manner, while Rhett rolled his eyes and turned from her, crossing his arms at his chest.

"Bitch."
"I can be, yes."

Rhett's eyes had firmly landed on Liesha's backside while she made her way to the bar counter.

"Question!"
"What Rhett."
"Do you know that woman?"
"I've seen her."
"...damn. There goes my opening."

"I'm going to go say hello to her."
"She's so going to shoot you down."
"How much you wanna bet?"
"Twenty-five UNIs."
"You are so on..."

Rhett then took the time to runs his hands back through his hair and make his way over to Liesha. He pushed the mechanical skull out of the way and gave her that charming, crooked smile of his.

"Saw you over here all by yourself. I was wondering if I could buy you a drink. The name's Rhett."
"He just wants to sleep with you," Monika called out.

Rhett's face went quite blank. There was no winning when that woman was around.

"Oh don't listen to her please! I'm just trying to make a new friend and all that good stuff, honestly. Eh heh."

He reached back to rub at the back of his head while mentally cursing that red-headed woman.

"Rhett Altas XI. I know, it's odd but we Altans don't have last names, you see. So, Rhett will do just fine."

He paused for just a second, shifting his weight to his other foot. Man, this woman was pretty but damn did she make things awkward. And he was not about to lose his money to Monika.

"Can I ask yours?"

Monika scoffed and said, "Don't you mean to ask her if she wants in your bed already?"

Rhett's face went blank again. Apparently Monika hated men ever since Casper blurted out that little secret. It wasn't fair that she was taking it out on him now.

The note was read and Rhett arched a brow while scratching at his chin. 'Yeah that would work probably but, I don't know this woman too well and just offering her flowers like that out of the blue would creep her out more than anything else,' he thought to himself.

"Oh, Monika just has a stick up her ass since her boyfriend decided to tell the whole world that he slept with the genius junkie. She's taking it out on me. I'm honestly just here to make a friend." Now.

"Well, you get stuck in a ship that has the same women over and over again without any new faces and see how you act when unleashed into a new world, or planet, whatever you want to call it."

Monika gave the woman a wave, while keeping a close eye on Rhett.

"Stop telling the world my business."
"Oh please, it is everyone's business."
"Now then, she's just going through a difficult time, and I let her be mean to me."
"You're just saying that to sound 'cool'. She ain't biting, Rhett!"

"Monika just wants my body."

That shut her up.

"Wh-What I was n-not staring at you --"
"Ooh hahaha BURN! You got BUSTED!"

As Rhett had no idea what the paper said, he was rather pleased that Liesha had finally warmed up to him and had given him a most pretty smile.

"Well now see, isn't that nice. You have a great smile, Liesha."

He flashed his own charming one before being hit in the back of the head by a plastic ashtray.

"Oh goddammit woman!"

And there goes his ego, feeding on what Liesha was saying, or rather his hopes to discover what was beneath all that clot--

"You know what. It is a shame that men would do that. As I tell Casper all the time, he really needs to stop hitting on so many ladies when he had such a good one, Monika. Not that I would date her, she's not my type. I like women with pretty smiles, and hers is a little dull and mean, if you know what I mean... anyway..."

Rhett kept rambling about what he liked in a woman, and how men should treat a good woman, ignoring the blatant warning from the floating skull. He even tried to swat it away while his eyes sneaked a peak every now and then to Liesha's chest in a sly manner. Monika, however, had risen from her seat slowly using her cane for support of her bad leg while those eyes just burned a hole in the back of Rhett's head.

Something bad was about to happen to that man and he didn't see it coming. Not one bit.

Oh Stars, Rhett loved blonds. And yes, even through the destruction of First Earth the stereotype had survived. Blonds were air-headed and easier than brunettes. This was far too easy! The woman was just eating up every stupid, bullshitted word he threw out there to Liesha.

The cat was in the bag.

"Space, eh? Well, I'll tell you all about it. I'll start with Triton, I've never been there myself, but we're all descendants of people that did come from there so the memory of the plan..."

Monika crept closer to Rhett. She was so close now, just a little further to that man. All she needed to do was remain quiet with that damned cane and not knock it on anything. Though, even if she did, Monika didn't think that he would notice from how damn well good a job Liesha was doing right now to keep his attention. Oh yes, she knew what the other woman was doing. Women could read other women's mind, or at least that is what Rhett and Casper would say at a time like this.

"So, where everything is green on First Earth, it's blue on -- hm?"

Monika had tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention, and as soon as enough cheek was shown when he turned, that woman balled up her fist, reeled it backwards and punched him square in the jaw. It hurt her hand horribly, but it was worth it to see the shock on his face, and then the way he fell against the bar counter to finally end up slumped over on the floor.

"You tit."

Monika kicked him while he was down for good measure with her good leg.

Both hands were held up to the cheek that Monika had punched while he groaned in pain. What the hell? Where did that come from and what had he done to deserve that? Actually, how the hell could Monika hit that hard?! Rhett moved the note aside with another swat of his hand, the words just flashing past:

I am laughing at you
.

But he wouldn't get to respond before a heaving stool came flying down onto his crotch and midsection.

Stars. That's all he saw. Just stars.

"What the hell are you doing to Rhett!"
"Oh just playing a game Casper, want to join?"

Casper hurried over to the fallen man to help him, or give him medical attention whichever was needed more.

"Oh gods," Rhett murmured as Casper moved the stool off of him. The veins and tendons in his neck were practically bulging to the point of bursting. His face had turned a dark shade of red too, almost to the point of purple. Rhett rolled over and curled up into fetal position. Poor thing almost wanted to cry. But real men never cried.

Casper would have cried. Real men could cry.

"Seriously Monika. You have to stop hating men, or we're all going to think you're a les- oh hey, there." For once, Casper didn't give her a lecherous stare. The red mark which outlined Monika's open palm from a slap suggested that he stop.

"Maybe I should be one," she replied.

"Catch you later, dollface," Rhett gasped while attempting to stand. It didn't work out. Casper had to catch him and support him.

"Bye," Monika said with a mad grin as Casper said," See you later."

"Good Gods. What is going on in here," called out Rhett as he saw what seemed to be Kohrii beating the living hell out of Casper and for no good reason. Not like he was up to date on all the drama, completely at least.

Rushing over to the pair, the man man-handled Kohrii and ripped her off of the, now, bleeding Casper.

"Calm.. down, Kohrii! Stars this is crazy. Hold! Still!"
"N-No! Let me at him. I'm going to kill that man!"
"Umph!"

Kohrii had elbowed Rhett in the side which forced him to let her go. The woman immediately wrapped her hands around Casper's throat, and was going to squeeze the life from him. He would have let her too. But man was saved by luck, karma, God, whathaveyou. Kohrii went into another seizure, locking up all her muscles.

"Shit!"
"Casper!"

The two men attended to her as best they could while those spasms controlled Kohrii.

"We need to get those damn pills for her."
"Are you kidding me?! That's what's making her seize in the first place you idiot."
"I'm not the life support technician here!"
"Just-Just shut up and watch her mouth."
"What do you mean watch her mouth, my fucking hand is about to get bitten in half!"

They were sure to give Kohrii room and space, while keeping others away from her, and controlling where she flailed.

The spasms began to slow, and eventually there was a limp Kohrii gasping for breath while laying on the floor. Rhett was left to cradle his injured hand, while Casper held the woman's hand and brushed her sweaty hair back from her face.

It was a quiet moment for them all.

Casper gently tilted the woman's head upwards and rolled the woman on her side. It was easier for her breathe now, and her face turned less purple.

"Stars, Kohrii, I am so sorry..."
"I don't think a seizure is going to make her less angry, Casper."
"Leave us alone."

"...right."

Rhett shoved his hands into his pockets and made towards the bar, spotting Liesha tucked into a corner with some man who was wearing a blind fold.

"Ho there, Liesha."

Rhett was very guarded around the woman this time.

"Ah, nice to meet you, mate. Name's Rhett if miss beauty here didn't tell you already." The man was moving out of her reach, or the reach of any object that she could hit him with after saying that.

The situation with Kohrii and Casper seemed to lighten for the time being. She was recovering and would be fine. All would be dealt with soon enough.
