“I've begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.”
~ Chaim Potok, The Chosen

Basic Knowledge
"Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we've traveled."
~ Jane Mersky Leder


Roy Stephen Smoak

Not really a fan of nicknames. Rose says I'm kinda boring that way. Don't really care.
Broody (Only by Rose)
Roy doesn't do the whole middle name thing. His name is only one syllable, so it's not like anyone can really shorten it.

Senior year now. Think you can handle a year without me, sis?
Criminal Justice Major

"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them."

|Godly Parent|
Greek God of the skies - of honor and justice
Guess it's no secret where I get my major from, huh?


Lightning & Storms ~ Electrokinesis, the ability to create and manipulate lightning and to some degree, electricity, is probably his most powerful and deadliest ability. While other children of Zeus are more prone to powerful gusts of wind that rival some of the worst hurricanes known to man, Roy is equally as deadly with his lightning. In truth, when he is angry, you can hear the lightning crackling in the sky as if a storm was brewing in the horizon. He has great mastery of this now, but a few years ago - when he was nowhere near the academy - he was deadly. His emotions were always fluctuating and he was always so quick to anger; one touch to another person and he could give them an electric shock. Now that he's older, he can control himself to the point that he can actually power up his battery when he needs a quick charge, but can also wield what others perceive to appear as a lightning bolt, reminiscent to his father's bolt.
Aerokinesus ~ His second ability, being able to manipulate air, is just fun for Roy. In fact, when he's feeling particularly lazy, he uses this ability. If his emotions are not in his control, then yes, he can probably create an intense storm, but nothing to the degree of somewhat like Amelia, per say. With his control, he is more likely to appear as if he's flying (because Roy can be lazy when he wants to be) or simply closing the door without touching it.

Peak of human physical condition ~ Roy is seen to be in top physical form from intense exercise training from his time before he came to the academy and now. All of Zeus' children are equipped with enhanced strength and fighting abilities; Roy appears like has such qualities. His body is lined with hard muscles, his strength is unfathomable as he has not actually determined how powerful he honestly could be, his reflexes are astute, and he is quite agile, even in swimming.
Swimming ~ As a child and further into his teenage and now adult years, Roy was and still is a swimmer. He is probably never going to be on the same level as a child of Poseidon, he is a quite skilled and swift swimmer. He is a member of the swim team and does so in his leisure.
Martial Artist ~ Roy can admit that he would leave the stealth and the parkour to Rose, but he is definitely a better fighter than even his sister. He is trained in six forms of martial arts and when he is not on campus, he is an underground mixed martial artist. Of course, it's dangerous. Then again, he is the son of Zeus and most of his opponents have been humans. It's not like he has had too many troubles winning.

Rose Smoak ~ Everyone knows that behind the seemingly hard exterior is a loving brother who would do practically anything for his sister. So, when most people want to get at him, they probably would try to use Rose. She is the one person in the entire world that Roy would kill for and he would never hesitate in doing so. If anything happened to her, he doesn't know how badly the outcome will be and he actually fears what he'll do.
Fire ~ It gives him bad memories, so he tends to keep away from them period. It was a sad discover, especially considering the fact that Rose loved s'mores as kids.
Anger ~ Most would find this surprising as he is normally seen as quiet and in his own little world, but Roy does have a temper. Ask his former best friend; oh, wait. He's dead. Now, Roy is not known to be as vicious as that. Andrew's death was an accident after all. But he does have quite the temper, especially when combined with his protectiveness over his sister. He is not quick in his rise to anger, but it can be quite hard to control once he's at that point.

"The radical novelty of modern science lies precisely in the rejection of the belief... that the forces which move the stars and atoms are contingent upon the preferences of the human heart."
~ Walter Lippmann

{Contemplative, Protective, Fun-Loving, Judgmental}
At the end of the day, most people recognize Roy as Rosalie Smoak's older brother; the tall, broad-shouldered swimmer with a forever present brooding countenance and a critical eye of anyone who even dares approach his sister with the intention of being anything more than friends. When most people first encounter Roy, they think that he is cold, nonchalant and are completely blanched at the idea that he could be related to the lively blonde. In a sense, sometimes - when they forget about their past - they wonder the same thing. It is simply the fact that both have switched personalities over the years. However, those closest to the siblings know that Roy is far more than the quiet athlete.

In fact, he can actually be playful and he has a small sense of humor, though dry at times. He is probably his most relaxed when he's teasing his sister or with a select group of friends. The one thing the siblings have in common is their inability to allow just anyone into their inner circle. For him, that's even more serious. First impressions are everything for Roy and if you've shown even an ounce of deceit or treachery in your impression, he's not interested and you will know of his dislike of you. Growing up with devout Christians for grandparents, Roy grew up with fear of disobeying God's testaments. But more than that, like his sister, he does not wish to lie. So, trust that he will give you his honest opinion of you and he's as stubborn as her. Once you've disappointed him, it's going to take more than an apology and one act of kindness to make him think of considering you an acquaintance let alone a friend.

When you become friends with one sibling, you accept the fact that you will more than likely have to encounter the other. Their lives have always been intertwined; even in a school with separate goals and different levels of involvement within the academy, they're going to always wind up being in the same vicinity. This also attributes to his sometimes overprotective tendencies. If you are someone that he cares for, do not doubt that he will probably act like an older brother to you as well, but Roy can be even more protective over Rose. He's probably the main one - out of everyone that's ever been or is in her life - that has seen her at her worse. So, he feels required to look after her and protect her the way he hadn't that one time years ago.

His silence is another part of him that does not appear to be going away any time soon. Children of Zeus are natural-born leaders. However, it takes a true leader to sometimes not always be in the front of the line, but to allow themselves to be on equal grounds with their followers. At times, it takes a leader to be a good follower and that's the person that Roy is. He is not quiet to be quiet; he simply thinks a lot. A lot of his actions are more on the logical side of things. He hardly if ever follows his gut feeling like Rose and instead, opts to use his brain first. It's led to a few issues with his romantic involvements in the past, but at the end of the day, he lives by his sister's code: if you can't love him the way he is now, then you won't be able to love him ten years in the future and if that's not a goal for you, he's not looking.

How He Came To Be
"To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time."
~ Clara Ortega

Rosalie Marie Smoak woke up feeling...

What's a good word to start the day off with? Rose's lips pursed in thought as she pulled her slightly oversized shirt over her leotard and sweatpants, allowing the material to hang off of her sloping right shoulder and giving a teasing glimpse of smooth, lightly-tanned skin and a leotard strap. Hmm.... A slow, devilish smile lifted the corners of her mouth.


She felt exuberant.

Contrary to popular belief, being Dionysus' child didn't make it easier to deal with hangovers. Just because he was the God of wine and partying and good old-fashioned fun didn't do much of anything other than give all of them great appetites for fun, which definitely showed last night. Surprisingly enough, it was simply being hydrated. Rose hardly, if ever, had hangovers mainly because water was her main drink before and after indulging in shots. She was an athlete, after all, and a dancer to boot. She needed to remain hydrated, which definitely helped seeing how her first class of the day was Dance Appreciation.

Once she deemed her outfit cute enough to chill in (it wasn't like she needed to show off or anything), she proceeded to tie her hair up in a semi-high ponytail that leaned a little more to the right just to be creative and allowed the shorter ends of her hair - which fell to about maybe collarbone length - to frame her face. Just to be different, she added some personality glasses and coated her lips in a dark coat of magenta. It was different and matched her nail polish. Satisfied, Rose gave herself a nice little spritz of vanilla perfume, grabbed both her backpack and laptop bag, and walked out of her room.

Rose passed the Zeus dorm, wondering if her brother was awake. She shook her head. As much as she loved annoying him, she also understood that he would more than likely be ready to kill her if she tried. She'd call him once she was in the cafeteria. She shook her head at the grandeur of the dormitory.

"Show-offs," she sneered lightly and continued along the path towards the cafeteria, the scent of wonderfully-prepared breakfast wafting to her noes and leading her in the right direction. Once inside, Rose noted the a good number of students and smiled brightly. "Morning, guys!"

She took her time deciding what to eat, perusing through the lines and glancing at different things. Finally, she decided upon eggs, bacon, hash browns, and a banana muffin. She wasn't particularly picky about eating nor was she conscious about it. In all honesty, she was just going to work all of it off anyway. Rose fixed herself a mug of coffee just the way she liked it, two packets of vanilla creamery and a few pumps of caramel at the expresso bar. Satisfied with that and a glass of water, she gathered her tray and bags. Her eyes fell on one of her closest friends, Eddie, and she hurried over to his table.

"Wassup, love? Still hungover?"

Rose was distracted.

While her friends always entertained her and she adored being in their presence, her mind kept drifting to Zeus' dormitory where her brother might not even be. Normally, Rose didn't worry too much about him during breakfast time. In truth, Roy didn't like being woken up in the morning, which was why his schedule dictated that no classes started before eleven in morning. However, this was a very important year.

It was his last year and he was worried.

About her.

Roy was already getting ready to apply to both the academy and a few other career opportunities that one of his mentors advised him to. But his brain was focused on the prospects of Rose being alone for an entire year once he has graduated. Forget the fact that Rose learned to defend herself a few years back - forget the few moments where she did allow herself to get violent and drop-kicked a guy for grabbing her arm too tightly. No, he was worried about his little sister - not Rose, the strong woman.

Rose nearly jumped when Alana spoke to her. She flinched when she heard her best friend's voice, eyes focusing again on the table of friends and the food she didn't really eat. She smiled tightly to Lana. "Yeah, sure. No problem." Suddenly, Rose wasn't interested in anything other than finding her sibling and she hurriedly excused herself to go find him, grabbing an apple on her way out of the cafeteria.

A few minutes later, Rosalie entered the swimming pool room. A small smirk tugged at the right corner of her mouth when she approached the edge of the pool, staring down at her brother as he floated on his back in the water. She placed her hands on her hips, shaking her head and amusement dancing in her eyes.

"You're up early."
