FULL NAME
      Allure the Siren.

NICKNAME(S)
      Alli, Lu, Ray-Ray | Any number of distortions. It's rare for people who are familiar with Allure to refer to him by his real name. It, after all, serves as an unpleasant reminder of what he truly is.

      God of Temptation | Never respectful, oddly enough this title is usually flung off as an accusation. Allure is typically called this after wrecking some sort of havoc in the vicinity.

      Homewrecker | Alas, Allure can't help it. When people cave into temptation, more often then not this comes out in the form of adultery.

      God Over the Heart | What might be considered his "true" title, but Allure hasn't been called this since his fall from grace ages and ages ago. Used sarcastically, it could make for a piercing insult.

GOD TYPE
      God of Temptation.

GENDER
      Male, but has a tendency to prance around as a female.

AGE
      Unknown.

SPECIES
      Siren | A dangerous yet beautiful creature, known for luring and shipwrecking sailors with its enchanting music. Their voices have the potential to drive listeners to insanity. Birdlike and deadly, the Island of Sirens lies strewn with the bones and rotting carcasses of past victims.

SEXUALITY
      No one, not even the god himself, knows what Allure wants. It's painfully obvious he's either attracted to everyone or no one; genders certainly aren't a factor here. On the other hand, is it possible that the key to his genuine desire lies in actually becoming close with another person?

HEIGHT
      In his god state, Allure stands at five feet eleven inches. However as a Siren he is significantly more monstrous and is a couple inches over six feet.

WEIGHT
      As a god, the redhead is roughly one hundred and thirty, maybe forty, pounds. Somewhere around there. Interestingly enough, as a Siren Allure's weight plummets to less than a hundred pounds. You can't fly if you're heavy.

HAIR COLOR
      Thick, glossy hair the color of roses spills over Allure's shoulders. Cut in careless, windswept layers, his fringe frames his face and has a tendency to tumble into the god's eyes. Allure rarely lets his hair loose, however, and usually keeps it up in a myriad of different styles. Loose side ponytails, complicated up-dos, braids, knots, buns; you name it.

      As a Siren, it's less of a matter of hair and more of a matter of feathers.

EYE COLOR
      Allure's eyes are like bits of carved jade. In his more monstrous form, however, the green hue leaks and expands to overtake the whites of the Siren's eyes. They become birdlike for sure; Alli's pupils contracting and expanding like any raptor's.

SKIN TONE
      Naturally porcelain white, Allure is a person who tans very easily. Due to his immortal looks, that tan vanishes as fast as it arrives! Since the god has been wandering for some time now, however, he's managed to maintain a nice golden hue.

GENERAL APPEARANCE
      The God of Temptation possesses almost an unearthly... prettiness. Though a male in the form of a human, he lacks any sort of "traditional" beauty or rugged handsomeness. Rather, Allure carries the same draw of a hand-crafted doll or a masterwork sword. Something to inspect and appreciate and use, as if he wasn't a living being meant for conversation and connection. Lu's looks serve the purpose of drawing a line between himself and others; after all, he is the "God Over the Heart". He is not meant to be swayed by his own mundane relationships.

      If Allure is indeed a tool, an observer could tell at a glance he is one made for precision. While not miraculously tall, he is lean and evenly portioned. The god's build could almost be called slender if not for the wiry, compact strength in his movement. For such a "pretty boy", Allure's masculinity is verified in the slight broadness of his shoulders, the tapering waist, long-fingered painter's hands, and defined collarbones.

      The Siren possesses a pearly-white, serrated smile. His four canines are sharp; you'd have to a blind idiot not to pick up on the carnivorous dental structure. No longer is Allure the pretty tool on a shelf, he becomes a frightening and monstrous blight on nature. The god's nails shift into blackened claws, hair now a wild mess of feathers and long red locks. Alli's feet become talons, feathers the color of drying blood adorning his legs and tracing up his sides and back.

      What seems like a bulky, feathered cloak at first is actually a pair of wings seated and centered on his upper back by the creeping upsweep of feathers. And what a marvelous cloak it is; Allure's wingspan is approximately twenty feet in diameter! His entire musculature is different than any humans, possessing the supernatural strength required to give him flight. And though his bones have hollowed out, it still takes an absurd amount of energy to actually maintain flight. Glide, maybe. But Allure cannot fly without the vitae obtained from devouring another lifeform. The more sentient, the better.


"Hah, that's me! The pathetic god who loves everyone except himself!"

PERSONALITY
      ✦ Apathetic ✧ Desperate ✦ Two-Faced ✧ Wretched ✦ Silly ✧


      To put it simply, Allure is a man who is off his rocker.

      Now, he was always pretty weird. A meddlesome God of Romance, out to execute his favorite pairings with an almost ruthless intensity. Wacky, adventurous, but always very very helpful to those in need. Most importantly, he was very very emotional. When the project that was to be his greatest achievement blew up in his face (and everyone's faces, actually), his entire original personality crumpled like a tin can. The energies he had poured into the failed relationship backfired terribly, leaving Allure with an interesting... condition.

      The newly-dubbed "God of Temptation" must love the person who he is currently interacting with.

      Now, there are some exceptions. This doesn't apply to people who are already in a serious relationship, those who are mentally unbalanced at the time; basically any condition that would render a romantic attachment meaningless. It's innate, automatic. These are no faulty or fake feelings; the emotion of "love" Allure experiences at the moment is 100% genuine. And the type of love varies from person to person; anything from a slight crush, to murderous obsession, to extreme lust, or even to brokenhearted desperation. People who inspire a stronger feeling of love will overpower those with a weaker feeling.

      I'm sure you're wondering, "In this case, how in the world does Allure ever fight anyone?" Well, er, the thing is, Allure doesn't view battle and bloodshed as an act of hatred, but rather one of... intimacy. It's, ahem, 'exciting'. Yeah. I'm just gonna end this here, I think you get the picture!

      Regardless of how strong the feelings may be at the time, once Allure leaves their presence... it's over. When he's by himself, it's almost as if he has been transformed into a doll. He doesn't really care about anything or anyone, just vacantly wandering around doing his work as God of Temptation. He becomes sorta... bland. Or so it seems.

      Detachment from one's own wants and desires is the price of failure.

      In reality, Allure is feverishly searching for something he can't see. He wants something, needs it desperately. But, as he doesn't know what he seeks, the search is largely fruitless. Only those who his "curse" doesn't apply to will ever see the god's true self.

      Lu has... a few remnants of his original personality left. They really manifest themselves when he's around others, but it's there. It's not as though he's a soulless husk; really, it's hard to explain. He's a very silly boy, just for the sake of being silly. He's also determined, utterly hell bent on somehow fixing himself and making things better eventually.

      The God of Temptation is, of course, a very sexual being. He's not perverted, though, don't get me wrong. Allure does have some sense of class. He's teasing, very accepting and okay with sexuality in general. He feels as though there's nothing to be ashamed of, in that regard. Hell, the thought of shame doesn't even occur to him!

LIKES
      ✦Baby Sea Turtles - Does this NEED an explanation? Growing up on the shores, Allure fell head over heels in love with these squishy, weak, pasty-looking lil suckers. When he was younger, Lu actually cried when he realized most of them end up getting devoured by predators. Still, today if he sees any he has to make an active effort not to die from sheer cuteness.

      ✧Music - As a Siren, it goes without saying that Allure would have a fondness for music. His tastes are fairly refined, but open. It's easy for him to enjoy a piece, however it's nigh impossible to impress him. His sisters have set a high standard, after all.

      ✦Human Flesh - Those serrated teeth aren't for looks, you know. Sirens aren't just pretty bird people, they're monsters with a fondness for flesh and a tendency for cannibalism. Human flesh, in particular, is considered a delicacy. Beware, if Allure contemplates "eating someone alive", he very well might mean it literally!

      ✧Praise/Compliments - After his fall from grace, Allure was sorta kicked down to the bottom of the cesspool. It isn't often that he receives nice sentiments like these, so praising him is a sure way to make Allure's shriveled heart go a-flutter.

      ✦Beautiful Couples - Perhaps its more of a "God of Love" thing, but Allure has a serious weak spot for people in healthy, well-tended relationships. Sometimes just looking at two lovebirds is enough to bring tears to his eyes, and more often than not Allure needs to excuse himself from the room to try and regain his lost composure.

      ✧Spiders - There's something elegant about the design and symbolism behind arachnids that draws in Alli. How they're entirely aware of their surroundings, strung up in the middle of their webs. The god isn't scared of these in the least; in fact, he considers them beautiful! While it may be the wisest of habits, he likes to pick up and handle them with the utmost care. Of course, deadly things should be treated with a certain amount of respect.

DISLIKES
      ✦Wearing Clothes - Sirens are not beings meant to wear clothing, alright? The only reason why Allure isn't running around as naked as a newborn is due to silly things like "social norms" and "propriety". Don't forget all the angry old ladies and their purses. But besides that, the point of the matter is that shirts and jackets will snap Lu's fragile, hollow-boned wings if he transforms wearing clothing. Obviously, that would be terrible.

      ✧Being Near People - Contrary to popular opinion, Allure doesn't exactly enjoy turning into a love struck buffoon every time he steps out of the house. It's not safe, and the intense smackdowns of sudden feelings are rarely pleasant. As such, the God of Love has turned into quite the hermit! He lives on the outskirts of the civilized world, avoiding any and all contact with other sentient beings if he can. And if he does happen to come across someone? More often than not they end up as birdfood.

      ✦Himself - Allure hates his own personality, his way of thinking. Internally, the god is far more honorable and kind than he may come across on the outside. This is due to certain less-than-desirable personality traits interfering with his own basic moral goodness. Well, excuses excuses go cry us a river Allure. To put it simply, Lure is an kinda a bastard, and he knows it.

      ✧Cheese/Dairy Products - One would think the god was lactose intolerant with the way he avoids dairy products! He just simply loathes that moldy, cow-udder stick to your mouth taste. Things can be bearable with other ingredients, such as bread with nuts and fruits, but otherwise nah. Allure might actually puke.

      ✦The "High and Mighty" Type - What, you think you're too good for begging in the dirt? Too good for working out in the sun? Too good for violence and warfare, too grand for the impurities and blood and sweat and labor of the world? There's nothing wrong with shining someone's shoes for a living. While celibacy and soberness are commendable, it's nothing to lord over others with.

TALENTS
      ✦Vocal Skill - It's not surprising that a Siren such as himself would have a lovely singing voice. While Allure's song may not have quite the hypnotic effect of his sisters', it has been known to bring audiences to tears during the rare performance. This 'talent' isn't limited just to Lu's singing; the god's speaking voice is smooth and rich. Allure is capable of hitting notes all over the musical range, and his gift at impersonations is uncanny.

      ✧Clear Sight - For all his supposed "insanity", his eyes are exceptionally clear sighted. Whether it's due to his position as a god, his power, or something else entirely- Allure is particularly good at picking up lies and tricks. Allure is able to keep a thoughtful, calculative calm in his head during even the most stressful and nerve-wracking of times, analyzing the situation and what needs to be done. Nothing is ever hopeless; one must simply view it from a different perspective.

      ✦Bloodthirsty Combatant - With the exception of the God of War, there are likely very few people

      ✧X-Rated - While I suppose I could wax on and on about how good the God of Temptation is at sex, or seducing others into wanting to have sex with him; let's be honest here. Allure is a crazy man who eats people. More often than not, his lusting nature creeps the unsuspecting individual out. A person who doesn't want to be seduced is never going to ever really be seduced, am I right? But, to put it simply, not everyone is always unwilling...

FLAWS
      ✦Easily Exploited - But that leads me into the first flaw. There are times when

      ✧Wildcard- EXPLANATION

      ✦Rusty - EXPLANATION

      ✧Homeless - EXPLANATION

      ✦Legendary Temper - On dark nights, every so often the topic of the "God Over the Heart" will be brought up by the older generation. Usually to comfort a scorned or rejected child, the tale goes that long ago the God of Romance was prone to fall into fits of psychotic rage for a now-unknown reasons. While none of these fits have occurred since Allure's fall from grace, who's to say they won't happen again?

FEARS
      ✦Public Speaking/Preforming - Though this might not be well known, the God of Temptation has quite the shy streak. Though he excels in close, one on one situations, when placed in a situation where he's required to meet the expectations of many people he crumples.
      ✧Failure - Sirens die if their songs fail to attract their victims. And it's not just spontaneous combustion- they kill themselves. It's more of an honor thing. Allure's song may not have the same potency of his sisters', but the same principle of honor applies. Every failure, no matter how slight, is devastating.
      ✦Centipedes - BECAUSE THEY'RE FREAKING GROSS, THAT'S WHY.
      ✧Breakups - Not really his own breakups, per say (Allure could care less, actually). It's the breakup of those beautiful couples! It's heartbreaking! A tragedy! Truthfully, some might say Allure takes a separation worse than the couple themselves. It shatters him right in the core. Emotionally, breakups are like a blow to the stomach, or a knee to the groin. The prospect of a treasured pairing falling apart utterly terrifies the god of romance.

✄ --binding----
      Allure is able to see the threads of love and desire that lace between humans, gods, animals, and objects. Wants and wishes, from a teenage crush to a girl who wants chocolate to a boy who loves his dog. With just a glance, the god can tell exactly what a person wants at any given time. Whether it's a person or an object or something more intangible (such as death for someone suicidal). Of course no one can process this much information and still function normally, so Allure has learned to just ignore and try to see past his vision filled with glittering cobwebs.

      Seeing the threads are one thing, but Allure's real power lies in his ability to manipulate them. This power is much more decisive than a "strengthening" or "weakening of a bond". Though he can do that as well, it's actually much harder than say, severing a bond altogether. It's much easier to break things than it is to build them up, after all.

      The power obscures his vision and costs energy, yes. Some form of touch is always requires. The worst consequence, however, is the devastating kickback if too much energy is used and it all goes to waste.

      Cutting | The threads operate as a tangible thing, so it's not as though Lu can just will a relationship or urge to end with his mind. He has to actually walk up to the thread strung between the person and the object of their desire, and "snip" it with a scissor-like motion of his fingers. Obviously, some bonds are stronger than others, and the particularly stubborn ones will take much more energy to sever. There are a few, in fact (such as the case of "true love") that would kill Allure with the effort of trying to cut them.

      Pulling | This, truly, is Allure's favorite and most useful method. If he comes in contact with a thread, it's possible for him to "pull" on the one it's attached to. This will induce the person to fulfill their desires. For example, a homesick maid will finally return home, a straying husband will finally cheat on his wife, or the crushing boy will finally confess his feelings. This ability is actually subconscious for the most part; Allure walks through them and particularly strong ones will be giving in right and left. Weaker desires, however, will require his specific energy and attention to force them to give.

      Stitching | Yes, this is the ability to manually create bonds of desire and love, by physically drawing a line from one person to the next. This is by far the most difficult aspect of all; the bonds Allure creates are so powerful they'll knock him out cold for a few weeks at the very least. "The red string of fate"; bonds woven by the god of love himself. The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.

⇠whip⇢
      While his power corresponds to the desires of others, the God of Temptation's whip responds to Allure's own personal wants and lusts. Capable of moving with a force of its own, the whip is able to retrieve an object from a distance, or lash down hard enough to break a person's leg or smash in bones.

      Interestingly enough, now that Allure is no longer in touch with his own wishes, the whip has become the sole indicator of what the Siren truly desires at any given moment. As such, it has a tendency to disobey commands, or even go crazy at the most random of times.

"Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning, just as forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future... But not everyone sees it that way.

Murder, deceit, pain, anger... These are all temporary cures until one must accept. One must heal.

Maybe it was fate when the young teens opened that book and fell into our world. The Depths. In blinding light, they had dissolved and become part of it. They had intertwined their ancient pasts with their modern lives, which is where we begin.

The land was coated in a fine, white powder of snow, the beauty of the landscape breathe taking as the teens stood on the fresh snow covered flowers. A meadow of pure eternity, some would say. The teens? Well, they had undergone a metamorphosis of their own.

At last, the 'heroes' have come!

And of the Gods being deceived? And the truest victim of all?

The Goddess of Ice and the God of War decided to embark on a stroll, the God of Misfortune, the God of Temptation, and the Goddess of the Sun and Moon staying behind within the village grounds, going about their day. "
