The Saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound...

0 · 796 views · located in The Vastness of Man

a character in “Breathe Me”, as played by Lovely VonSchultz



With a tall, muscular body, Machai trains whenever he is apart from Nike. His skin is tanned, a trait from his bloodline. With grayish-white hair, he tries to keep it short, but lets no one cut it. This results in uneven, spiky cuts made from his knife. His gray eyes are intense and always observing the surroundings. With senses much like a wild dog, Machai knows what is happening at all times.


Machai, around any one else but Nike, is intense, mysterious and silent. His hand is always on the knife at his side and his muscles are always tensed and ready for anything. He seems uptight, too serious, and many servants call him a bore. What none of them see is the gentle and caring Machai who keeps Nike at the edge of sanity. They don't see the sadness and depression at losing the woman he secretly calls "Mother".

When he's by himself, Machai enjoys drawing. In a small notebook are many sketches from his home under the Earth, the world of Man above, and even what dreams he's had at night.


Machai wears a medallion about his neck, one Nike gave him that belonged to his father. It is the symbol of the Wolf Clan and the birthright of the Chief. Also, he wears his father's hunting knife always on the belt of his pants. Machai is never without a weapon.

Things he owns also are a helmet and a bow and quiver of arrows meant for war. It has been centuries since they were needed... Machai does not look forward to the day he will need them.


Machai knows nothing but Nike and her life. He has grown up with anything he's ever needed. The books of his people ready at his fingertips and the knowledge of his adopted Mother from centuries before. Machai was told that his mother died at childbirth and sometimes later his father died of a broken heart. Losing her was like losing his soul and he could no longer live with it. The young man understands this feeling. If Nike were to die, he would go insane, that much is true. Since he was old enough to understand and learn, Machai has trained in order to protect Nike from any harm. But he grows fearful. She is being taken in a way he cannot protect her. His Mother's mind is dying and he cannot save her there.

Character inspired by Howl by Florence and the Machine.

So begins...
