❝Write a quote that is meaningful to your Saniwa here.❞
- speaker of quote


Oliver had an easy life as a child, born as an only child to an industrious oil baron overlooking one of the 30 and his charming Wife, Oliver lived his early life in riches. Born to the roaring twenties, Oliver remembered extravagant parties overflowing with champagne, paintings decked the walls with exotic colors. He was a bright boy, a little reckless and

He gained his love for art from his Mother. Having little to no things to do around the house, she hosted parties and sought out art exhibitions. Most of the paintings in the house she gained personally, often commissioning promising young artists and buying pieces of work she especially loved. Spending time with his Mother, Oliver didn't end up growing to like flashy cars like the rest of his peers. Instead, his time was spent sneaking in and out of bars to listen to jazz bands, going to art galleries with his Mother and appreciating the growth of culture.

His Mother’s Favourite painting was none other than Claude Monet’s water lilies. Many an occasion will she bring guests to view the masterpiece, mounted with a golden frame in the middle of her bedroom. β€œLook!” She would say, gesturing at the painting with the dramatic flair of an actress. β€œLook how the light falls upon the lilies! Look how the fleeting quality of day is captured in this work, isn't it the most lovely thing you've ever seen?” She spoke at length about how she would have loved to invite Monet over for tea, lamenting the death of the artist who she admired so dearly. Claude Monet died two years after Oliver was born. Five years later his Mother would follow.

Fleeting and beautiful, that was how he would always remember her. His Mother died during the Great Depression, her poor health finally catching up to her with the sudden decline in wealth. Despite that, the Cohens were still relatively well off during the Great Depression, and his Father insisted on holding parties as such, in a statement that they have triumphed over the harsh times and we're doing just fine. "You may lose everything you have, son, but you must never lose your pride." Oliver could hear his father's gravelly voice to this day, ringing in his ears whenever he considered giving up. The parties had an adverse effect, of course. Many resented the wealthy for the sheer social divide that was becoming more and more apparent by the day, and Oliver soon learned how to dodge out of the way of stray rocks. His strangely eloquent speech and anxious stammering coupled with his well off background made him an easy target for the children his age, but Oliver was stubborn if anything. Refusing to bow down or beg for mercy, the boy fought tooth and nail against his tormentors, even if he was vastly outnumbered. In the most serious incident, Oliver had his leg broken by a brick in three places. Though it healed up eventually, it left him with a slight but noticeable limp in his youth.

When he turned nine his Father began teaching him about the fundamentals of business. Believing that success comes to those who strike first, his Father taught him business tactics and how to develop an eye for opportunity. Those lessons played a role in his shrewd eye for profit and often sly deception, but Oliver was never interested in his father’s business. Having a passion for art cultivated at a young age by his Mother, the 1930s was a time of change and renewal for art and music, and he couldn't be luckier.

While the art before the Great Depression was often made to conform to the tastes of that time, with the lack of funding the arts were open to new interpretation. More artists dedicated themselves to create new controversial pieces of art, redefining the artistic scope. This evolution was what led to Oliver’s philosophy of β€˜without revolution, there will be no change’. Art was an embodiment of the human spirit, and as Oliver lived in a time of work strikes and controversial pieces, he eventually grew to respect emotional pieces, along with developing a rebellious streak of nonconformity.

Of course, his Father was not thrilled at his passion for the arts. His Father took days of convincing to send him to art classes, unsure of the path his only successor is choosing to take. However there was no limit to Oliver’s determination, and eventually he wore his Father down with his begging after promising that he will study economics in college to take over the business.

Oliver initially volunteered to to northwest school, a group of artists that painted public buildings like schools and libraries with pictures of light, taking inspiration from Japanese styles. From there, he began expanding his view on the world of art. He started communicating with the artists, many of which were more than happy to teach the boy a few techniques. The others he learned by careful observation and practice, drawing on the walls of his bedroom with the seriousness of a true artist. By the time he reached the age of eleven, Oliver was well versed artistic techniques like watercolor and sketching, wood cuts and print making. He was a promising young artist with undeniable talent, and as his artistic talent blossomed so did his spiritual vision.

His first encounter with wandering spirits were the houses down at Illinois, the shacks and shanties called β€˜Hoovervilles’. The spirits were skin and bones from the unfortunate who died of starvation, and it broke Oliver’s heart to see that in such a state. Surprisingly, he wasn't alarmed that he was able to see them. Oliver took things in stride, choosing to investigate personally rather than consult his Father, who he considered to be troubled enough. A saniwa priest found him sitting cross legged by the shacks reading bible verses and singing hymns in a weak but commendable attempt to somehow exorcise those lingering spirits, and he was subsequently introduced to the house of the four winds.

Training in conjunction with his studies, he was in high school where he gained a newfound interest in oriental art and how different they were from the art he was exposed to as a child. Gaining admittance into Harvard, it was in his first year of espionage training did he gain the idea of becoming an art curator. At the age of seventeen and being allowed to manipulate some of the shares of the company to teach him how to manage the business, Oliver daringly drew out some funds to purchase artworks claiming that it was in the name of the protection and preservation of art and culture. As the tidings of war started to brew, Oliver was able to seize quite a sizeable amount of paintings that others sold to him at Low prices for funds to escape the war. Joining the Monument Men movement that uncovered priceless artifacts left behind by the fleeing Germans and unearthing historical pieces, Oliver smuggled a great many into his museum by offering it up as an art repository.

He initially had no clue what to do with his training, opting to take it easy and finishing all nine years before considering a specialisation. However, as his ninth year grew closer eighteen year old Oliver started panicking over his choices,

There isn't a word minimum/maximum for this section, but please concisely explain your character's faction contributions. Please keep in mind that all applicants enter the story as B rank characters. Spiritualist Saniwa should therefore only have one artifact as opposed to two.

For Combat: Propose a combat trial and how your Saniwa completed said trial. You must also explain what fighting style/weapons your Saniwa specializes in.

For Spirituality: Please describe the incarnation ceremony for one of your Artifacts. You must include the religious paradigm and you may consider explaining significant actions, relics, and any other important symbolism involved in your Saniwa's incarnation ceremony.

For Research: Please explain the thesis project for what your Saniwa would specialize in, invent, or innovate. You're basically writing a research proposal for Saniwa's final promotion. Please include some information on the current research project that your Saniwa is assisting in. (As a B rank Saniwa, your character can only act as an assistant, and can't head their own project.)

For Candid Espionage: You must propose an espionage trial and explain how your Saniwa completed said trial. The trial should justify your Saniwa's aptitude for espionage, and why they were selected an espionage agent.

For (Unseen) Espionage: (1) Please name the second area of study (Research, Combat, or Spirituality) that your Saniwa that your Saniwa specializes in, and fill out this section as you would for one of those. (2) You must propose an espionage trial and explain how your Saniwa completed said trial. The trial should justify your Saniwa's aptitude for espionage, and why they were selected an espionage agent.
