Cas
~The most common, probably most casual nickname of them all. He doesn't mind who uses it. In fact, he favors it over his full name or any of his other nicknames because it's the most normal-sounding one, and he relates it to some sort of friendship.

Casper the Unfriendly Ghost
~This one's pretty obvious considering the children's cartoon. Which he hates. Which he's never liked in his entire life. He's never seen a single episode and doesn't need to. This is clearly a nickname meant to mock and he doesn't appreciate it in the least.

The Boogeyman
~Another one he isn't particularly happy with, although he gets it. It's a name that derives from the original one, from Xaven himself, way back when. Sometimes, it's a name whispered in fear when his back is turned, other times, it's a catty "compliment" used to regale him. He has mixed feelings on the term.

Casper's hair is a natural blond without a streak of anything lighter or darker tainting the purely colored locks.

{β˜› β’Ίβ“Žβ’Ί ⒸⓄⓁⓄⓇ ☚}
The eyes Casper were born with are a beautiful blue, just as bright as the sky that soars above us all. However, throughout the experiments, they became twisted, ruined, bleeding out the sunny blue to make room for the eerie red they have now become. Sometimes, in the right light, in the reflection of himself out of the corner of those ruined eyes, he thinks he can see a glimpse of the blue they once were, but whenever he turns to see, all that's staring back is the red.

{β˜› β’·β“„β’Ήβ“Ž β“‚β’Άβ“‡β“€β’Ύβ“ƒβ’Όβ“ˆ ☚}
He wears a property number tattooed permanently into his skin on the back of his neck. He can't see it for himself, but he knows it's there. He always will. There are scars burned into his skin, scattered across the platform of his physical form, many long healed, but still stiff, still sensitive to the touch, as if fresh as the day they were given.

{β˜› ⒼⒺⓃⒺⓇ⒢Ⓛ ⒢ⓅⓅⒺ⒢Ⓡ⒢ⓃⒸⒺ ☚}
Two-sided. That would be the best phrase to use when describing Casper's looks. He's two people in one, the true Casper part of him being so naturally different from the Xaven that's been forced inside of him, made to share his soul when a soul is not meant to be shared in the first place. Upon first glance, and even for a few more looks after that, his overall aura gets the best of people. It's what everyone notices most after the experiments. Passed on from the unluckiness of Xaven, the aura has others shuddering in fear, has Casper appearing to be some dangerous creature, more devil than man. People will look at him as if he has glinting fangs and sharpened claws, as if his eyes hold the fires of Hell themselves. A smile from him looks genuine only in the way that it can freeze people over. It simply appears unfriendly, leaving people to wonder if he is at all.

Overall, he would admit that he does have that look in general, even without Xaven. With his nature as a person, especially now with the being tucked uncomfortable away inside of him, Casper will admit that he tends to give off the wrong facial expressions and has the wrong type of body posture. His smile curls like that of a king on a throne made of bones of his victims. His eyes almost cast a glow, especially in the moonlight, striking fear to the core of anyone who happens to catch sight of them at the wrong time of night. His skin his pale, scratched and scarred both by himself and by others. When he wears his hair down, he emits a more natural, friendlier exterior, however he prefers to wear it back and as he believes it makes him look better. Besides, having all that hair in his face can get bothersome. When it comes to body posture, he's usual too casual, giving the appearance of one who belongs in a room of people who generally believe he does not. This is just his outward appearance. He exudes the aura of a Prince, cruel and cunning, when the reality is that looks can be deceiving.

β₯ Stars Sometimes Casper resents the land in which he was born. Maybe, just maybe, if he'd been birthed somewhere else, if he were made among the stars rather than the Earth, things would be better, and he would've been given a better outcome in life. Seeing the stars lets him dream.
β₯ Friends There are few that he can trust and even fewer he can call his friend. As desperate as Casper is for friendship, he can be particularly picky when it comes to those he actually allows to be considered a friend. However, if he does consider someone a friend, it's the highest honor that they can be bestowed, as he will treasure them with his life and trust them with his heart and soul.
β₯ Bugs While animals run at the sight of him, bugs do not have the same capacity for fear. He doesn't have a problem with any of them, from butterflies to roaches, and can be seen talking to them as if they are intelligent beings from time to time.
β₯ His Sister Although it may often not seem like it at times, Casper has a deep-rooted love for his sister. She is his rock, his constant, the one and only he can trust without a single doubt. Any resentment he feels is only towards the way she's treated compared to him rather than towards Sera herself.

⌦ Liars The hatred Casper feels for liars is deep-rooted, sewn into the marrow of his bones, consistent and extreme. Because of this, he's found it hard to believe anyone, because he's well aware that everyone lies. And a liar of any kind can not be trusted.
⌦ Being Alone After spending enough time alone, dwelling in a dark corner with only his thoughts to keep him company, only to discover that the sight of people he'd been dreaming of has somehow become the sight of them turning their backs on him in fear and anxiety, it can become something akin to a bad taste in one's mouth.
⌦ Absolute Darkness Knowing the truths of the world and what lurks beyond the natural plane that normal humans can see can do a lot to disturb someone. There are things in the dark. Most often, these things came from Xaven, but it doesn't help knowing that these things won't harm Casper because he is still against it.

Truthful Casper will never tell a lie. Every word that leaves his lips can be rest assured as the truth. He has no concerns with softening the truth to protect those in misery, finds no value in lying to make one feel better, and finds it overall disrespectful to allow someone to continue living a lie.
Sudden Sleeping Since he doesn't get his sleep at night like most other people do, he tends to fall asleep periodically throughout the daylight hours. He's not an insomniac, so he still needs his sleep regardless of what time he's able to get it, but he tries to stay awake when others are awake if he's able to. Doing this leads to him tending to pass out on the spot no matter where he is or what position he's in.
Chatter Bug This doesn't mean he talks a lot. Rather, he talks just about the same amount as anyone else generally does. This just means he talks to bugs. Literally. He talks to them as if they're intelligent beings, confidently carrying on casual conversations with bugs of any times. Sometimes he names them, asks their opinions, tells them about his day, or about any general thing.

β˜› β“Œβ’Ίβ’Άβ“€β“ƒβ’Ίβ“ˆβ“ˆβ’Ίβ“ˆβ˜š
⌦ Paranoid There are things he once was clueless about, living a life in blissful ignorance, and now all of that bliss is gone, as well as his innocence. Xaven has told him of what lurks in the dark, of the true monsters under the bed, of the deep, dark secrets of the world that he would've been better off going without knowing. While these things can not harm him, it doesn't mean they can't harm others. Because of this paranoia, he may often be distracted, spacey, nervous, or jumpy.
⌦ Aura Xaven's aura has carried on over to Casper, leaving him with the invisible "look" or "feeling" that tends to unnerve others, send shivers down their spines when he passes them by, makes them shift nervously whenever he's in the vicinity. It makes animals bark and howl and scatter away in fear. It's not fair. It's not his fault that he suddenly exudes an aura that counters the person he truly is.
⌦ Nocturnal As mentioned earlier, his sleeping schedule is completely off. There's no real explanation for it other than the fact that Xaven prefers night over day, so whenever the Sun starts to rise, Casper's eyes start to droop. If he's able to wander about, he usually just finds something to occupy his time with, or checks in on others in their sleep to make sure they're not in any sort of danger.
⌦ Easily Agitated Because of the lack of sleep, along with the knowledge of all that lurks in the dark, combined with the paranoia, resentment of others, and the voice of Xaven lurking in his head, it's natural that Casper would be a bit on the moody side. He doesn't appreciate jokes at his expense, doesn't like to be bothered for too long unless it's important, doesn't like to be dragged around or told what to do. There's plenty more.

β₯ Considerate While Casper may seem blunt and careless towards the feelings of others when it comes to the truth, he actually does that for their own benefit. He genuinely believes people are better off knowing the truth, no matter how harsh it may be, than allowing themselves to live a lie. He cares for others in a way that may not be so obvious to anyone who aren't paying enough attention. He tries to make sure they're safe and enacts a variety of small deeds to ensure the safety of others if he's able to.
β₯ Loyal Once Casper considers someone a friend, that person is meant to be a friend for life. A friend is someone he deems he can trust, someone he can tell his secrets to, or give his heart and soul to, without having to worry about them being returned in a tattered condition. He would give his life for a friend and he expects them to do the same.
β₯ Truth Seeker Eyes are the doorways to the souls. In a less poetic way, everyone has a tell. It may be an innate ability passed over from Xaven, he's not sure, but Casper seems to have a knack for telling the truths from lies. He has no issues with calling someone out on the spot mid-lie, either, regardless of the reason or the situation.
β₯ Sixth Sense Casper seems to be a little bit more sensitive to the possibility of danger than others. He's rarely wrong when he believes that something bad is about to happen. If he's able to stop it before it happens or do something to prevent it altogether, he'll absolutely do what he can, but if not, then he'll warn those he's with just so they can be as prepared as he is.

Darkness While he's nocturnal, he's aware of what lurks in the dark, under the beds of friends, in the closets of children, in the heads of soldiers and victims of trauma. It's true that fear is meant to protect, but it can also get carried away and enact the harm it was meant to protect from. This is all that lurks within the darkness. Casper does not fear these things for himself, but for others.
Loneliness After being left in isolation for so long, especially while craving the attention of his sister, loneliness can become a true burden. And while it's true that that stage of his life was hard, it's hard to say that it wasn't harder when he had his chance to interact with others, only to find that others lacked the desire to interact with him. Most people fear him or act oddly and fake around his presence just because of the unfortunate aura Xaven gives off. Because of this, Casper finds it very hard to find people who are both trustworthy and can tolerate his presence.
People Of course, he doesn't hate people. In fact, he enjoys them very much. That is a trait shared by Xaven and Casper both, as they were made to protect, not to harm. But people misunderstand, people are cruel, people have their own darkness infecting the inner workings of their complicated minds. When people are afraid, which they most often are when in the presence of Casper, they are capable of frightening things.

β™™ To love someone is not to love every bit of them. It would be rude to love the parts of themselves that aren't meant to be there. Still, I'm not quite sure how to love the parts of someone that they hate about themselves. Honestly, I'm not sure how to love properly at all. β™™

The most important thing to remember about Casper is: looks can be deceiving. While his outer appearance, the presence he gives off, the aura that surrounds him, his looks from his eyes to his hands, may appear to any outsider that he is not someone to be trusted, this would be far from truthful. While it would be a lie to say that he would never hurt another living being, these occasions come as a rarity--at least, in a physical sense. Physical confrontation is something Casper tries his best to stray away from, especially when it comes to anything that promotes the possibility of danger. If a situation looks bleak, if things don't feel right, if the hairs on the back of his neck stand on end, he's bright enough to know when to turn tail and run. However, while most may consider this an act of cowardice, it would be wrong to assume. It's just the smart thing to do. On the other hand, if there was a scream in the distant, a cry for help, a sentient being in some sort of danger, he would not hesitate to see to their rescue. The well being of others is important to him.

There are many reasons for people to be afraid. These reasons especially apply towards others. Living in confinement, dealing with loneliness after loss, after the pain of having the trust of loved ones ripped away from his tightly gripped palms, after spending too long in isolation with only the thoughts that do not belong to him to keep him company, it is especially easy to be afraid. While it's true that most living things seem to be afraid of Casper, the truth of the matter is that he's probably more afraid of them than they are of him. He's the jumpy, paranoid type, suspicious of anyone who may act too kind or step too close, skittish when it comes to those who speak too loudly too suddenly, shaky when he sees something that he doesn't recognize--to him, in the dark, it can be hard to tell the difference between what is and what isn't human. And all through this fear, what he fears the most, is for others.

One of the first things people tend to learn about Casper is that he does not tell a lie, no matter what the circumstances, no matter who the person is. If a young child is asking for the whereabouts of a parent Casper knows has passed away, he will not beat around the bush to tell them that the one they are looking for has died and will not be coming back. While he cares for the well-being of others, he's not quite the empathetic type. When it comes to the feelings of others, no matter in what direction or degree, whether happy, or sad, or angry, or something besides, he doesn't exactly know how to handle it. Sometimes, if someone is crying, he might just stand or sit awkwardly within their vicinity, just because it's all he can think of to do. He's had plenty of time to realize that his bluntness can hurt the feelings of others, but there's no other way for him to tell the truth, so he continues speaking in that way.

Whenever, or if ever, anyone bothers sticking around enough to get past the creepy bone-chilling aura Casper has constantly wavering around him, they would come to realize that he's actually quite an awkward person. He's not very exciting, rarely up to doing anything exciting without having to be forcibly dragged off to partake in the task, and isn't sure enough around others to know how to hold a casual conversation. Of course, if he ever gets close to someone, if he ever learns to trust them, he'll start to ease up and act more relaxed around them. With that person by his side, he'll even act more confident around others. The worst downside to being in his company, once one is able to see past the darkened aura, is his mood swings. They aren't quite at random, but due to a number of factors--his lack of sleep, his paranoia, his internal angst, etc--Casper is easy to snap. It wouldn't take too much to have him snap on someone, or to have him ranting and raving, or lecturing someone for too long, backing them against a wall before he storms off. All in all, what is meant to be kept in mind, is that Casper, above all else, is human at heart. Humans are complex beings, and he is no exception.

He is surprisingly calmer and more himself around others during night time, especially since they act as a distraction to the otherworldly beings lurking in the shadows. Once he gets attached to someone, he may follow them around like a lost animal, sticking to the heels of their feet; this is partly because he's an awkward type of person and partly because he wants to be around to ensure the safety of that person. He also tends to cry quite easily, sometimes without even knowing the reason.
