Description

'To attempt the destruction of our passions is the height of folly. What a noble aim is that of the zealot who tortures himself like a madman in order to desire nothing, love nothing, feel nothing, and who, if he succeeded, would end up a complete monster.'

GENERAL APPEARANCE
      Julian is a young man who stands to be five feet and eight inches. He's quite lean, being skinny, having no fat, but a bit of muscle. Most the time, he looks tired, black bags underneath his eyes, a sleepy aura about him, etc. He seems to wear most of his clothes black, and would rather his arms be covered by sleeves of some sort. His nails, both hands and feet, are black, although how is unknown since he admits himself that he doesn't remember. His hair has eventually faded from black to a ghostly white color, and while his eyes are grey colored, his left eye will turn red, blackness surrounding it, when he uses his ability over his own blood. Even though he is young, Julian is told, and often hears, how dangerous and broken he looks, which is true. Sometimes he looks like he's going to murder the next person who talks to him (although that usually depends), but other times, his true self, before he joined X, he's just a regular teenager boy, who's quiet shy, quiet, and gentle towards anyone and everyone. So basically, there are two ways people see him; the good and nice Julian, and the Julian who's going to destroy a building.

PERSONALITY
      ✦ Quiet ✧ Hidden Gentleness ✦ Lonely ✧ Insane ✦

      It's not surprise if you were to see Julian staring out the window, or just simply staring at nothing at all. He's incredibly quiet and doesn't always enjoy talking with others, even if they're X. It's natural, and those who have been in X for as long as he has knows this. He's quiet mostly because he thinks. He's not as smart as some in X, but he enjoys thinking and gaining more knowledge through any way possible, mostly books, which is exactly why he's often seen reading an old book, or anything that has words on it, basically. If he's reading, it's best not to disturb him. He might be a bit moody.

      Many people see Julian and immediately feel threatened by his death-like appearance, when in reality, he has a bit of a shy, hidden gentleness. Once getting past that somewhat intimidating exterior, many people find Julian to be... well... simply normal. He's a bit shy, a little corny at times, but he's really just like any other teenager should be if the world hadn't screwed him up. He's quite gentle towards many people (only X) and enjoys to help do even the smallest things sometimes, although only for certain people. Julian would have accepted everyone before, but now, something's gotten into his head, and it's changing him, which goes to the next trait-

      Julian is very lonely. New members, or anyone who doesn't know him well, will obviously quickly realize how he's always alone. Yes, he does know a few people, he's a bit close to some people, but Julian is truly alone. He feels as though no one will be able to understand what he feels on a daily basis, the voices he hears, the things he does. Julian is the dirty worker. He does things no one else will be capable of doing unless they are willing to lose whatever humanity they have left. Julian can feel himself slipping away, and knows that no one else understands this, and therefore, is slowly letting himself drown in it.

      It's slowly happening, but he is slowly losing his mind, and giving into insanity. He can feel is crawling up his spine, wrapping it's arms around his body and whispering words in his ears that no one else can hear. It makes him think thoughts that are violent, horrifying, and disgusting, even about those that he wants to protect. It drives him insane and makes him want to kill himself, and the only way to stop this from happening is to kill others. It's why he's the one who does the torturing, the one who kills at the front line, and the one who will die the most tragic death when his time comes. It comes very soon.


ImageImage
LIKES
      ✦Flowers - "I feel like even the worst people in the world can like these." Julian mostly favors daffodils and roses. They can't be found very often now that the whole world is dying, but seeing pictures and just remembering them when he was younger (even though it was still after the atomic bomb) is enough.
      ✧Reading - "Literature is a good way to gain more knowledge about anything. Besides... some things are kind of interesting to read." Although books are hard to come by, Julian will read anything and everything that has words that he can mange to pick up. Seriously. If he's 'normal,' he'll sprint to the top of a building to grab a book about to fall.
      ✦X - "They're my family now, and they replaced what I lost." Without them, Julian would be alone in the world. Completely, and entirely alone.
      ✧Being Himself - "I want to stay the same me that I still should be, not that it'll last long from now..." Julian is slowly going insane, and he can slowly feel the kind, shy, and normal boy inside him dying.
      ✦Blood - "...The sensation of killing someone is great, and seeing that red pool on the ground is just..." Normal Julian doesn't think this. He isn't normal when he's fighting or doing bad things, and therefore, becomes a whole different person entirely.


ImageImage
DISLIKES
      ✦Fighting - "Please... I really... really don't want to hurt anyone anymore..." His mind conflicts with itself. Half of him wants to go on a rampage and just douse himself in blood, but the other half wants to stay far from any sort of violence.
      ✧His Slow, But Surely Coming Insanity - "I don't just hate it... I'm scared of it eventually taking what humanity left is inside of me." Julian knows it's going to take him, and when it does, Julian will not longer be Julian.
      ✦Hurting Those Precious To Him - "It's going to happen. I've done it before. I can't let myself do it again. No more." Julian has, indeed, hurt someone he cared about in the past, and it felt horrible, like parts of him died inside. It's one of the most wrenching feelings he's experienced as normal Julian.
      ✧The World - "It's shitty. It's fucked up." Julian truly hates how his generation is being born into a dying world where only the strongest survive. He thinks it's messed up and believes that it's better to not be born at all sometimes, but who knows is insane Julian thinks that, or normal Julian thinks that...
      ✦Living - "I... I just want to die. I don't want to live in this world anymore. I'm not even going to exist. We're not going to make any difference..." Julian wants to die. He doesn't want to live anymore, or hurt anyone, but at the same time, he can't bring himself to die or let himself die, and this is because of his insanity prevents this. It's like trying to die by holding your breath; your body won't allow it. Julian cannot let himself die, not matter how much he wants to.

TALENTS
      ✦Withstanding Pain - "It's apart of the growing insanity. Don't know if it's a good or bad thing though..." Julian has done such cruel things to his body in order to complete a mission without failing. It's not that he can't feel it, but that he chooses to ignore it, and his control over his blood helps to deal with that amount of pain as well.
      ✧Regenerative Abilities - "I know my blood, I can use my blood, wouldn't it be obvious that I would know how to repair my blood?" Although it takes a while, Julian is able to seal wounds if given enough time and concentration. He doesn't really use his ability in a healing way, and this healing only is for himself. He doesn't do well with other people's blood.
      ✦Agile - "I've learned before joining X that if you're a slow runner, or slow at anything, the bullet's going to meet its target." Before Julian joined X, he would run away from bigger guilds and gangs that hunted solo players, and he witnessed someone get shot right through the head because he took a break in his sprinting.
      ✧Reading - "I did it when I was younger, and I still enjoy doing it, with... well... whatever there is left passing by." Let's not describe this for the third time.
      ✦Writing - "If I can't find books, sometimes I'll just write my own stories and ideas when I'm not thinking straight, that way, when I look back down at my paper, I don't realize what I'm reading." What's scary about this though is that he might not always use just a pencil as his writing tool...

FLAWS
      ✦Does Things On His Pace - "If you can't keep up, then don't join me..." It's that simple. He does things according to his own pace he likes. He'd rather not have extra baggage to carry around or someone to worry about in a crucial time.
      ✧Reckless (When Fighting) - "I-I don't remember this." Only insane Julian knows that he doesn't think when he fights because he's insane. The only thing he focuses on is killing the target in front of him.
      ✦Detached - "It's... hard to explain. I just don't feel like I belong here, or there. I don't even feel like I should exist." Julian feels very detached from everyone, including X, even more than he is in reality. Only he knows that the wall creating this distance is called insanity.
      ✧Secretive - "I like keeping to myself. There's nothing wrong about that, is there?" Julian doesn't like speaking about himself, and therefore is very secretive. It makes him incredibly hard to read at times though, and very unpredictable, even a bit untrustworthy.
      ✦Losing His Mind - "I want to kill. I want to destroy. I want to rip. I want to shred. I want to drown in all that red." There are two Julians that try to annihilate one another; normal Julian and insane Julian, and so far, the later is winning that internal struggle and slowly taking control of the host.

FEARS
      ✦Losing His 'Family' - "Even if I'm to lose myself, I don't want to lose them, no matter what. That's all I ask..." X is the most important people he has in his life right now, and losing them would be like losing whatever meaning he held in the world to actually survive.
      ✧Hallucinations - "I don't know what right or wrong, real or fake, true or false- Not that I'm already like that. Just... don't make it worse." Illusions, hallucinations, tricks of the mind; Julian fears them all because he feels like one day, he really won't see the difference between the two and just... disappear, because of it.
      ✦A Slow Death - "I can't feel pain much anymore, but I don't want to slowly see everything fade into black. I don't...-" There's not much to this. Julian could rather his death be by being crushed by an old bus or stabbed in the heart, bullet to the head, anything but a slow death.
      ✧Collapsing Buildings - "I'm weary about what buildings I go into. If I die in one of those, the last things I'll see if something falling down, something so close to my eyes, and then just like that, die. It's a disgusting way to die too." Julian will almost always confirm in a building is stable before going inside of it. If not, it's unlikely he'll be entering the interior.
      ✦Losing Himself, To Himself - "Please, just leave me alone! I don't need to hear the voices! I don't want to continue living anymore! Just... Just get out of my head! I can't live like this! I-I need to kill something... No, someone kill me. I need to see blood. Oh god- What am I going to do with myself. What a tragedy. Disgusting. Disgusting." ---



“If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.”
― Charles Bukowski, Factotum

FAMILY
      His mother was raped by his 'father.' His mother abandoned him just after he was born and died only a few hours afterwards while his father's status remains unknown. He considers X his family now, and while he is curious about his parents, he won't go to look for them.

BIO
      Julian was born in the post-apocolyptic time, unfortunately, so a mother who was raped by a man belonging of a higher status gang. He was an accident, and wasn't supposed to be born. When his mother gave horrible birth, she was on the verge of death from the sickness in the air and the lack of food, she left him, a new born child, next to a pile of dirt and trash as she stumbled off into the distance and began to die slowly.

      Julian never knew his mother, of course, since he died just a few hours after he was born, and he doesn't know his father either. He didn't even know that he wasn't supposed to be born, and that his father was a rapist, and a bad person. To this day, he doesn't want to know, even though he wonders at the same time. He's curious, but he feels that knowing who they were wouldn't bring him contentment. Even if he tried to find answers, it'd be impossible.

      Just after he was abandoned, he was 'adopted' by a man whose face he can no longer remember. This man, whoever he was, raised Julian until he was old enough to fight for himself, which was a very young age, apparently. This man was very strict with Julian, showing him dead people, dismembered bodies and solo players running for their lives from higher up gangs and guilds. Julian saw dead, dying, and people who were going to die. He grew up a way different from others. It was in the right direction, yes, but at the same time, he was being raised like an animal; being taught to fend for his own life and protect himself. Only himself.

      By the time he turned 10, he was set loose. This man just up and left him out of the blue, moving on his with life, and leaving Julian alone. He had learned enough by then though, and it kept him alive. He was forced as a kid to run to his limit, sprint back and forth all day long, get beat by a pole in various places... it was horrible, but it paid off one day, when he was 13, just after he stole food and water from a gang. It wasn't even that much, but he was discovered immediately, along with someone else who he took caution with when they decided to work together, just once. They were running, but Julian was faster, and just when he turned around to check on his partner, he saw a bullet pass straight through his head, and the body crashed to the ground, spilling water, and scattering pieces of food everywhere. Julian sprinted the rest of the distance, to safety, for his life.

      He hid inside the rubble of a fallen building, hoping that the gang had backed off. He didn't even steal that much food compared to the amount they had. But they didn't. They kept on searching and hunting for him, for two whole days straight, and, one of the men had powers, just like Julian, who only used it in vital situations. The building exploded, right over sleeping Julian's head. His legs were crushed, just as he made way for the entrance. His power, luckily, allowed himself to heal, but it took time, and it hurt like hell, but before that, the rest of the gang arrived, and they tortured him. His arms were broken, nails ripped off, head bashed in, but his power, which should have protected him, became a curse, and kept him alive during a whole night's worth of torture.

      They left him in the morning, half alive, half dead. His bones were still recovering from the breaking, his body's bruises were slowly fading back to skin color. The cuts all over him began to stitch themselves up. Life was shitty for the few days he sat next to the destroyed building. He didn't eat, didn't sleep, didn't drink. He felt like he was dying, even though it was the exact opposite. Since then, insanity began to take over him, and since then, X found him, and began to raise him right.

      But there would never be a right. Julian's life had already gone wrong, and there was no way he'd be able to get back onto the right track. He's lost, and will never become found again.

Mission Zero; X's objectives in their mission this time are: (1) rescue any lives within the building, (2) take all resources possible, (3) kill any last survivors of the gang, and (4) destroy the building.

Location Of Mission Zero;
Despite the many buildings in the ruined city, there are a few that are still standing. This one lies in the very middle, being around fifteen stories tall, all filled with food, water, protection, money, prisoners, and the gang that goes by the name 'The Brotherhood.'

Information About The Target; 'The Brotherhood' is a smaller, but very vicious gang in the destroyed, nameless city. They are made up of around a hundred people total, and are armed with various types of weapons, but the majority is made up of guns. They're not a very intelligent group, mostly relying on brute strength rather than witty intelligence, and can be easily outsmarted if you can get past their aggressive offense. They don't deal with explosives and, when under attack, tend to split up into smaller groups from three to six, at the very most. They do not have a very strong defensive system, therefore the building can be easily entered, as there is very low maintenance. They had a habit of taking innocent women and children, but not men. Usually, the prisoners can be found on a higher level, making it a challenge for them to escape, if they dare to.

Information About The Setting; It is early April, in the unknown year in the future. The time is only around seven PM while X begins to start their mission, being an earlier time than usual. The weather is very cloudy. Whatever stars are in the sky are covered by the heavy, grey clouds, and from them, a violent rain pounds onto the surface. The wind howls, but it cannot be heard. There are occasional flashes of lightning and booms of thunder, but all this just appears to be background noises.

Assignments; Every member of X has a special talent, and that talent will be put to good use. It is only expected for X to have an organized system, which they do, for every mission. Mission Zero's assignments for each member is below.
  • Objective One: (One Group) Beatrix Rome, Amelia Rivendell, Noah Mercury
    ▷Beatrix, Amelia, and Noah will be headed for the top floors in order to release the women and children from The Brotherhood's grasp.
    ►Challenge: How do they get them out without suffering any casualties?
  • Objective Two: (One Group)Yuki Fukui, Isis Ourobouro, Ken Okita
    ▷Yuki, Isis, and Ken will have to find their way around the twenty floored building to quickly find the supplies, gather all they can, and get out.
    ►Challenge: How will the find the supplies quick enough before their bomb detonates?
  • Objective Three: (First Group) Serkan Brutus Haemon, Julian Ackerman (Second Group) Aviana Jager, Caesar Parker
    ▷Serkan and Julian will be laying on the most obvious entrance into the building which will be used as an exit for members of 'The Brotherhood' who are trying to escape.
    ►Challenge: How will they ensure that no one will be left standing when/if some members manage to escape them?
    ▷Aviana and Caesar will be roaming freely throughout the building, finding random targets and killing them on sight, making it easier for the other pair on the bottom floor.
    ►Challenge: None.
  • Objective Four: (One Group) Neil Lennon, Amber Einzbern
    ▷Neil and Amber will be secretly making their way to place the bomb on --- floor (up to decide) without getting caught by anyone.
    ►Challenge I: How will they time the bomb's detonation for themselves, and the other members of X still within the building?
    ►Challenge II: How will they manage to escape the bomb's radius (up to decide) with the others in time before the detonation?

Extra; Referring to the groups under the 'Assignments' category, they are who that character will most likely be around for the length of the mission. So if it only says 'One Group,' then that means that those few characters will be around each other most of the time, only under that category. Characters from different assignments may meet, of characters in the same group (and assignment) might be split apart, but to begin with, those are the other characters your character will be working with on their mission.

If anyone has any complaints about their character's role, please PM me ASAP that way I can change it immediately to your liking, if I decide to approve. If anyone has any questions, also please PM me or ask in the OOC and I'll answer as soon as I get the chance to.

'To attempt the destruction of our passions is the height of folly. What a noble aim is that of the zealot who tortures himself like a madman in order to desire nothing, love nothing, feel nothing, and who, if he succeeded, would end up a complete monster.'

░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░
Julian was on the first floor of The Brotherhood's base. Well, he was just outside the building, and look up at it with a blank expression that formed a frowned. He knew that the building would be exploding after Neil and Amber set up the bomb, but that didn't make him feel any more comfortable with it falling down.

The memory of the worst night of his life came back to him in that instant. Oh the pain... It messed with his mind, and his body was in pieces that night until it healed again in the morning. His mental state had been slowly deteriorating since then, and now he's on a line between sanity and insanity.

Julian's flashback ended a moment later and he found himself with his hand raised to his forehead, feeling dizzier than before. He shook this off though, and went into the building, pushing the large doors out of the way. This was the main entrance; the entrance that all the gang members would come crawling to in hopes of leaving the building before it was destroyed or before they would be killed, except that Julian and Serkan would be waiting there for them.

Julian looked over at his partner for this mission, Mission Zero, and said, "They'll be coming soon." He wasn't someone of many words, and that was about all he would say for the meanwhile. The rest of the while, he'd be killing any man, or even woman for that matter. It didn't matter which. Gender equality, right?

He began to hear screams, and the heavy steps of shoes on the ground headed in their direction. "As long as no one gets past us," Julian began, hunching over as his power, as well as insanity, began to take over. "It doesn't matter what we decide to do because the one and only goal is to kill anyone who tries to get past us. Easy enough." He murmured quietly with a horrible grimace on his face just as a two pairs of four, bloody red tentacle-like blades sprang from his back.

Julian had control over his own blood, and he used it to his advantage. Something spoke in his mind every time he was going to kill. Something excited him from the inside and told him words of violence, gore, and hatred. The insanity ran through his body just like his blood, and the soothing words whispered for him to attack anyone who dared to try and pass him.

At the sometime, Julian was trying to keep a leash on the monster inside of him. If he let go, who knew what would happen... He might even end up trying to kill Serkan because those whispers in his head were just that strong. He wouldn't let himself get out of hand. All he needed to do was to prevent anyone from escaping alive. That's it. He didn't need to do anything extra. Nothing else. That's all. Stay calm. Don't go overboard.

This worked, and he wiped that disgusting, terrifying look off his face. "Here they come..." He breathed as the first set of men came into sight.
