Description

"Which one is more practical, dear? Or logical? I'm completely stumped.."

Image

Full Name:
Koios Amphiōn Goodliffe, his first name being named after the Greek god of intelligence.

Age:
16. Despite his age difference, since most of the NINE members are older, he tends to act and speak much mature.

Gender:

Male, unless proven otherwise.

Height:

5'8

Weight:

154lbs

Appearance:

The English/Greek boy has a rather, "superior" appearance, one could say. His hair normally slicked back, though he has a couple of ahoges protruding from his hair, he's rather tall yet the average height, and he has abnormally pale skin. Koios tends to wear black gloves rather constantly, and he has yet to explain why he wears them to the loyal NINE members, also, regarding his appearance abnormality, he has dark violet eyes with a deep, thoughtful purple pupil. This is because of an eye pigmentation disorder; his original eye color being a sky blue, though as he grew and his melanocyte cells matured, he's developed an odd color in his eyes.

Now concerning special features, or technically, "prominent" besides his eyes, he has a single, dark freckle adjacent to his bottom lip. It isn't a mole, but yet, it is a single, alone freckle that has been there since his entrance into reality. His odd choice of clothing is another, rather, eccentric or prominent feature about him.

Usually preferring cravats and collared jackets, he's found wearing a dark, navy blue jacket with black buttons, and in a way it seems to appear like a trench coat, though it is modeled in a way where it isn't. It has a collared neck, and the jacket goes all the way down to his thighs and then stops. From then on, he wears simple white pants (the same color as his cravat and ruffled sleeves), though each pants leg is stuffed loosely into leather, dark, navy blue lace up boots, with white laces to be exact. The boots have a two inch wide heel, and the sole of the heel is made of a hard, stable plastic, so whenever the heels hit the floor they produce a loud, clack noise, as expected.

(Now, time for awkward facial explanation: lips, softness, hair texture, etcetera.)

Koios is described to have thin, soft lips; rarely ever getting chapped due to him being OCD and putting chap stick on every day, though his lips aren't necessarily that thin. They're more in between, basically, so they won't look unproportional. His lips aren't as pale as his skin, though yet is nearly identically the same hue.

The boy's skin is fairly soft, mainly from the many times he's spilled his Earl Grey tea all over him (he, well, to put it simply, never stops drinking tea or coffee) and putting ridiculous amounts of lotion on him. Occasionally it may feel as plush as a newborn child, though this depends how much lotion he decides to drown himself in.

Goodliffe has brown, dark, chestnut hair, which is naturally a bit thick and yet at the same time soft (unfortunately for him, when he was a child, he used to get pet by little girls on the school bus), due to yet again, ridiculous OCD-caused amounts of conditioner while bathing. He also smells like cologne all the time, whether it be at home or out, but don't worry, it's not the gross smelling kind!

Personality:

Koios is to be considered critical, usually critcizing or giving feedback about other's work, and tactical. He's also organized with his work, and if you (dare) touch his files on his computer, he'll flame you and threaten to hack your computer and, perhaps even, destroy it by installing immense amounts of viruses into it.

Being the brainiac and all, he has to be quite serious most of the time, in which he is, and he'll get frustrated if you disturb his thoughts with nonsense/or meaningless words. On the other hand, he believes in personal space, and his face gets flushed, turning into an embarrassed, blushing mess whenever someone gets too close to him, for example, physical contact would make him start blushing, like hugging or holding hands, shaking hands, or whatnot.

Goodliffe tends to be sarcastic at times, and occasionally he makes jokes (which probably the other NINE members don't understand) and he's a bit vague with words concerning advice.

Role (in NINE):

The Brains

Reason for joining:

He reasoned that he'd need to put his knowledge to use, and since they needed a smart, intelligent, and handsome tactical boy, he decided to volunteer and he's come to be very close to the NINE members.

Biography:

Koios was born not knowing who his siblings were, as they were separated at birth, and he has no idea who his cousins/aunts/uncles/grandparents and more are, only his irresponsible parents whom kept him secluded and confined in a room and playpen.

Up until he was 6, he scavenged for tools and drew on the walls, and stared at books for half the days. When he turned 6, he was let out of his room by an odd girl, that in a way, looked a lot like him, and was supposedly his sister named Artemis. She was 3 at this time, and so Koios wasn't so sure.

That is, until his parents confirmed this by showing him her Birth Certificate (in which, by this time, he could read perfectly from endless hours of staring at books), and so he believed them. When he was 13 and she was 10, he ended up having to save her in a fire, hence why his hands are gloved since he burned them horribly trying to save her, but by the time he got out of the house, she inhaled too much dangerous smoke and about 5 minutes afterwards died.

Up until he was 15, he was stuck with his irresponsible parents and sitting on the computer, doing research, again secluded in his room until he decided to go against his parents and jump out the window. Soon enough, he was found and was taken in by NINE, and has grown strong with them.

Also, at a time, he did go to school, except like said before, he got pet a lot by little girls.

Relationships (if any):

He has a deep relationship with his sister he tried to save, though knowing she's gone and he has now accepted this. Other than that, he has a pretty affectionate attitude towards all of the members of NINE. Affectionate meaning a sarcastic ball of seriousness.

Likes:

Tea
Coffee
NINE
Young Children "I'm not serious all the time. I get silly around babies, and stuff.."
Animals
Violins
Computers
Hacking
Sarcastic Jokes
Food

Dislikes:

Invasion of Space
Parents
Physical Contact

Fire
Smoke

Quirks:

Koios tends to twirl a piece of his hair when nervous out of habit, he also tends to say "dear" at the end of his sentence sometimes, to men and women.

Other:
His weapon of choice would be sorcery/alchemy/mysticism, etc. since he's able to do it, since it does indeed involve equations and mathematics, and also he has a vast mind.

So begins...

His hands freezing over the keyboard of his laptop, he solemnly researched about assassinations for a past time, sucking in all the information he could contain-that is-until there was the annoyance of slamming doors and yelling. The male's temples pulsed in aggravation as he was rudely interrupted from his work, and now, he couldn't concentrate due to a faint headache beginning to blossom in his forehead. "Do they expect me to get anything done with this much disruption and noise?"

Groaning in dislike, he delicately put his neatly gloved hands on his computer desk and rose from his office chair, pushing it back and allowing a passage to form so he could get through. Koios's boots clacked against the hard floor, hands behind his back with his eyes closed in concentration. Following the loud footsteps and the rising voices, he made his way down a curving hallway and gradually came up behind Night, sighing.

"Honestly, could you be a bit more quieter? Do you expect me to accomplish anything with all the interrupti-" The male stopped mid-sentence as he opened his eyes, shaking his head slowly afterwards. "My, my, my. Night dear, what a pervert you are. What a shame, and here I thought you weren't."

Koios slyly smirked, twirling a lock of his brown hair in thought. "So, another kill, hm? Not cleaned up, you say? Poorly done? This should be an exception, though. Her work is rather amazing, if I may say so myself, as she usually kills with such grace."

Crossing his arms, rested his knuckles against his chin, his fingers snaking over his lips. "Well, we should give her some privacy, do not you think? Let the woman get dressed first before you start interrogating her."

Turning his back, he made his way towards the living room and lounged on the couch, his boot-covered feet propped on top the armrest, that is until he heard a couple of mews from a room.

Raising an eyebrow, he must have not heard his dorm mate come bustling in. Curiosity came over him and he made way to the room, propping his glasses neatly onto the bridge of his nose and crouched down.

"Simpletons deciding to injure them? Typical rambunctious teenagers. What a shame, they are very unique creatures. Felines. Welcome back, though."

Lina sighed slightly annoyed as Koi came in also, bantering about them being to loud.

"Honestly, could you be a bit more quieter? Do you expect me to accomplish anything with all the interrupti-" The male stopped mid-sentence as he opened his eyes, shaking his head slowly afterwards. "My, my, my. Night dear, what a pervert you are. What a shame, and here I thought you weren't."

Koios slyly smirked, twirling a lock of his brown hair in thought. "So, another kill, hm? Not cleaned up, you say? Poorly done? This should be an exception, though. Her work is rather amazing, if I may say so myself, as she usually kills with such grace." Lina blushed slightly and puffed out her cheeks. S-stupid men and there-

Crossing his arms, rested his knuckles against his chin, his fingers snaking over his lips. "Well, we should give her some privacy, do not you think? Let the woman get dressed first before you start interrogating her." As he left, Lina nodded her head firmly before turning to stare at Night.

"Well.....are you going to go or is there something else you aquire of me...?" She asked, tapping her foot against the floor, impatiently. Ok, she seriously was getting annoyed of having to keep her arms wrapped around her chest. She heard a small mew from the other room, as her face lit with excitement. She almost ran out there to look but remembered that she was half naked. She growled quietly and then went up to her doorway.

"I will talk to you in a minute, Night."

And with that she shut the door.

Lina quickly changed out of her clothes and got into a towel, grabbing a pair of shorts and a short tank top. She nonchalantly walked out of her room and walked to the bathroom, to take a shower.

Avie had been sitting the couch, mindlessly staring at the ceiling when Night came bursting into the house, grumbling under his breath, not even noticing her presence, before sauntering down the hall to the bedrooms. Avie shrugged it off with a yawn. Night was always mumbling on about something, and when she heard Lina's loud, feminine voice, she decided she didn't want to get involved. She looked over to where Night had carelessly threw something and instinctively reached out to grab it. Taiyaki.

She shrugged, knowing Night wouldn't mind if she finished it, and bit into the sweet pastry, moaning as if she didn't just have the fish-shaped snack a few days ago. The door opened again, and Avie looked over, mouth full, smiling. "Hey Sva! Ooh, what's that?" The tall woman bustled into the house, arms occupied by a box. The large female looked worried and disappeared down the hall, leaving Avie's question hanging in the air. 'Oh well,' Avie thought, wiping the crumbs off her shorts and the couch onto the floor. 'I'll just bug her later.'

Avie yawned again, closed her eyes and rolled over onto her side. Maybe a couple hours would do her good before it was night time since she really could never sleep as soon as the sun went down. Too many creepy things came out at night, after all. She heard heavy boots move across the floor lightly before she felt the weight of the couch shifting next to her. Cracking one eye open, Avie saw Koios resting on the couch next to her. She was about to open her mouth to greet him when he abruptly stood and walked down the hall from which he came.

And then Avie heard it. The unmistakable mewl of kittens.

Bolting out of her lying position on the couch, Avie darted down the hallway, moving past Night and the closed door he was scowling in front of, a few feet behind Koios. He disappeared into his room and Avie followed, knowing her presence would be forcibly excepted. "Kitties!" She cheered, running over to a currently unoccupied bed and sliding on top of it, resting on her knees. "Come to me, my animal friends!" She cried, holding her arms out.
She turned to Svajonė and smiled. "Where did you find them?"

Svajonė looked at the two new people in the room as the kittens mewling, squirming to get into the large girl's lap. Picking one up and setting him on her shoulder, she sighed. "Mean little boys hurt them... I did what I can..." she murmured, taking one kitten and handing it to Avie. The kitten squirmed then relaxed into the girl's hold. The one on her shoulder jumped and landed in front of Koios.

"They like us... I was worried that they wouldn't heal but they look okay..." She stroked the kittens in her lap and let her shoulders shake with silent laughter as they nipped at her fingers. "They're still hungry..? Oh my..." she stood up and the kittens followed. In a line, they walked to the kitchen. They looked like a small army.

"Heh... They recognize me..." she quickly made another bowl of tuna, tomorrow's dinner, and fed the kittens. She didn't mind sharing her food. She'd find more somewhere. Mavolio twittered and chirped at his friend. "Oh? You hungry too..? Come then..." She took some bread and fed her jealous-ridden best friend. She smiled at the bird, who gave the bird equivalent of an angry huff. "I'm sorry, Mal. But they were hurt..." The bird merely tugged on a long sting of hair, pulling it out. His own little punishment.

"Happy..?" she muttered, rubbing her head where the hair was tugged, pouting slightly. It hurt a lot more than it looked. Her head was sensitive, more sensitive than that of a normal person. It was her weak spot, but then it was everyone's. Shaking her head slightly, she watched the kittens play-fight over food. "So cute..." Was muttered again.

Koios gently scratched the head of the small kitten, watching it bounce off after his close friend Sva. He still remembered that day like it was tomorrow, seeing the friendly giant distraught, a bit of blood here and there, he couldn't help but want to help her. It was his nature, and after all, she seemed like the perfect one to fill that open role.

Even though he wouldn't show it, he would worry about her, just how Night worries about Avie. What if she ends up getting lost? Hurt, even? Someone ends up kidnapping her? Which, in all honesty, was one thing he doubted, but it could always be a possibility. You never know in this world, everything is unpredictable.

Running a hand through his neatly slicked chestnut brown hair, he afterwards fixed his cravat and made a "kiss face" to the army of kittens as they exited the room. Though, afterwards, his poker face was plastered back on, a split second of shown ridiculous emotion. That is, when he heard the most feminine man scream he's ever heard. Again, I say, unpredictable.

Following with a hilarious stream of words mentioning a princess, and the noticeable loud footsteps of accelerated speed, Koios tried to hold back hearty laughter and a sarcastic comment. A smile beginning to rise to his face, more like a smirk, he sat in one of the office chairs next to his bed, crossed his legs, and propped them up against a table, pushing up his glasses with one hand while the other was occupied by tapping the armrest of the chair.

The 16 year old sighed dramatically, gradually shaking his head. "Night dear, I must ask since you are beginning to worry me. One, watching a woman undress, and now two, suddenly shrieking like a worried mother? Are you trying to learn how to become a female? If so, I wish you good luck my friend. By the way, I don't think Avie ever left. She was sitting on the couch, it's just I paid no mind, so please, stop yelling. Really, it's starting to agitate me, but I must admit it was hilarious. It's around these times that I wish I had my video cam on."

Koios shook his head, standing, hands dropping to sides. "I'm think I'm going to have some tea or whatnot. I'm a bit thirsty from talking so much." The male brushed past Night, and as he gait past, he poked at his cheek. "A tip on turning into a girl: I find most of them wearing make up. I suggest using Lina's, I believe she might have some."

Chuckling, he exited the room though left the door open, heading to the kitchen where his close friend was at. "Hello Sva dear. Having fun?" He asked, as he filled a large bowl with an ideal amount of purified water; Koios was rather particular with water. He hated tap water, because of all the germs that could possibly be in it, and so, he would get a couple of gallons of purified water, or else, he was not happy, and an unhappy Koios is bad. He even put a sign above each sink in the whole apartment, and it said "DO NOT DRINK TAP, OR CONSEQUENCES WILL BE ARRANGED. -Love, Koios." because of his paranoia.

Setting the clean, water filled bowl down onto the floor so the kittens could drink, he smiled briefly at Sva before heading towards the stove to prepare tea, and most likely Peppermint tea, his favorite kind aside from Earl Grey. Fixing up the tea, turning the stove on and boiling hot water, after a couple of minutes it was done and he poured the water into his favorite mug that had "KISS THE GENIUS" printed all over it. Smart, right?

Koios sipped his tea and exited the kitchen, boots clacking against the hard surface of the tiled living room, and lounged on the couch, setting the cup on a stout table and pulling out a small, petite laptop that probably didn't cost much, and typed away, looking up different recent killings, criminals, and kidnappings out of simple curiosity, and what to be wary of; after all, Koios was a precautionary person, thinking ahead of the game in case they did come in contact with one of the problems.

Svajonė waved at Leader-sama as he talked to Night. She liked the two of them, they were funny but not like Koios. No one had cared about her while she was on the streets. He had brought her here, to her new family. She'd always be in his debt, making sure he wasn't hurt, which was rare, he didn't go on missions often. But it was the thought that counts.

When Night screamed, the kittens buried themselves in her long hair, hiding from what had scared them. But Sva was frozen stiff. The scream sounded like her mother's. During her attack. Hands shaking, she tried to go back to making some tuna sandwiches, with little success. She took a few deep breaths to calm her nerves. Mavolio nuzzled her cheek before flying over to Leader-sama, her second favorite perch.

After she was calm, she heard Koios fix his tea beside her. She grinned when he smiled at her. Every one of Koi's smiles were special. They were rare and they made her day. She bit into her sandwich as he left. The kittens where still drinking so she merely kept eating.

Then when she heard small mewls and looked down at the kittens, who were pawing at her bootless legs. Counting them, she had six little kittens. One for each member. Her sandwich now gone, she grabbed the largest one, a brown boy with a gold stripe over his left eye. She set him on her head. "This is Lina's..." She scooped up two more, both a creamy grey but one was much furrier. Both seemed reluctant to each the other. "Night and Avie's..." She looked at the fluffy red brown one that was strutting around. "Here's Leader-sama's..." Then at the blue black one who was sitting by her feet, almost like a guard. "He's like Koi..." And the little white runt by his side. "And mine..."

Nodding at the Kitten List, she led them to a large chair and set them all in it before sitting on the floor beside it, petting Koi's as he didn't seem to want to go too far from the white one on her head. "Look Koios... This one's like you... He's so protective of the little white one..." She giggled softly, the kitten looking at his appointed member with curious eyes. They were very alike.
