Cyrus Romano

His first name is from Greece and his last name means Rome

0 · 212 views · located in The blank room

a character in “The Imagination Network”, as played by odepoptop

Description

Age: Around 16, or 17

Species: Demigod son of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of beauty, love, lust, desire, sexuality, and pleasure.

General Likes: Romance

General Dislikes Unromantic people

Nickname: Has been called "That one boy" and "That son of Aphrodite who hasn't broken a heart" mostly goes by Cyrus

Personality: Often forgets his own name, but is romantic none the less, being Aphrodite's son. He can be silly when needs to be and can always lighten a mood with just a small smile. He has the most accurate love advice compared to his siblings. However, he is often sad behind his mask, seeing as though he is the only teenager who hasn't had a romantic relationship with anyone, though he plays Cupid in his spare time.

Appearance: Although he's Italian, he has shaggy blonde hair and chocolate colored brown eyes. Has fair skin and perfect features. He likes to wear loose fitting white t-shirts, jeans, hiking boots and a custom made varsity jacket with "CYRUS" written in cursive on the right breast and "Eros's Competition" on the back with a big heart in pink. The jacket has white sleeves and and the rest is red.

Equipment & Abilities: He mostly uses his voice, or his charmspeak, but carries around a Celestial bronze knife if his voice fails him. He also has some abilities he got from his mother: Amokinesis, Infallible Visual Acuity, can speak French as well as Italian.

Weaknesses: He can get killed by Celestial bronze, and often feels a blow to his courage and confidence when a girl clearly tells him "I don't like you"

Further Explanation of Abilities:
Amokinesis—Is able to arouse love and passion in others, although he has never been able to get anyone to fall in love with him
Infallible Visual Acuity—Possesses a level of microscopic-vision, though it is not as great as his mother's
Charmspeak—Has a mesmerizing effect, capable of influencing the emotions of others or of placing them in his thrall.

Background: He was born to an Italian man and Aphrodite 16 or 17 years ago. His father died when he was around five, after he was brought to a demigod camp. He never really got to celebrate his birthday, so he doesn't really know when it was. One of the campers tried to help him figure it out when he was 10 or 11, but wasn't able to give him an exact year, just that he was born July 18th, but told him he was 10 or 11. After living at the camp for 2 or 3 more years, he was practicing the violin when a girl with black hair and black eyes found him. He found her insanely cute and tried to get her to like him until she ran away at the end of the summer. Once he was around 16 or 17, he was sent to stop the rising of the Primordial gods, sending him to the ring leader of the bunch in Death Valley, California.

So begins...

It was hard to keep advancing forward. Eren kept walking to the left, and Bain was having a hard time keeping up. I think I figured Tartarus out. He shined me that light to find the sacrifice, since I have that, I just need to find the sacrificial spot. I had just remembered he told me it would a shrine...A shrine to him. Tartarus.
I keep walking, eyes fixed on the horizon, when I bump into something. I look up at the man I bumped into. His eyes chocolate and milky, his hair blonde and silky.
"The Roman and Greek," I say, irritated. "Come to stop me?"

(Cyrus)
"Yes." I put as much power into my words as possible. "You can't go through with this!"
Maddalene scoffs and pushes past me. I keep pace with her. "Stop, Maddalene!" I yell desperate. She keeps walking.
"You really think that'll work?" She spits. "I know you have charmspeak. Nothing you say will have any effect on me."
I run up to her and grab her wrist. She stops and looks me in the eye, but doesn't say anything. She just stares at me.

(Eren's POV)
I loosened my hood, and it was freaking bright out still. I couldn't make out a single thing, besides a few thin outlines. I closed my eyes and tightened my hood again. This new guy had a voice that sounded a bit like chalk to my ears (This is a reference to her demonic part, as it's kinda made a point of in some places that Demons are really good at manipulating, and a lot of times even charming, so this is a reference to that, lol.) and smelled of a fuckton cologne, as if he just poured half a bottle onto himself.

(Bain's POV)
To me, this seemed like a lover's quarrel, but I had no way of knowing what this Maddalene's relationship with this guy was, but she had let go of me for the moment, and I decided to stay put. I sat down on the ground to get some rest, and Eren (I know her name because Maddalene had yelled it so many times) patted my head a few times before sitting next to me. She still had the hood over her eyes, so she couldn't see anything. Whenever the guy talked, she covered her ears a little bit.
"Why are you covering your eyes?" I whispered to her, and she leaned away from me a bit. Then she responded with
"It's too bright." I was completely confused, but left it at that.

(Cyrus)
I glare at Maddalene. I know what this is, a test of power to see whose alpha or not. I don't look away and neither does she. The first to look away is the first to fall. Still staring into her eyes, I pull her so she is in front of me, my back facing her companions. Without even blinking she draws her sword and puts the tip right under my chin.
"Submit," she demands. "Or you won't have a head much longer."
I don't submit and wait for her to look away.

(Madi)
The damn fool won't look away. Not even with a sword underneath his chin. I could do it. Press the sword farther and watch him choke on his own blood. But something holds me back. I'm the daughter of the Pit, the most evil thing in this word, so why am I hesitating?
A bead of sweat trickles down my spine from the Californian heat. My arm sword arm wavers, until it unfortunately falls, sword at my side.
Dammit! You're useless. Weak. I scold myself.

(Eren's POV)
I hear Maddalene's heavy breathing. Bain had been lying down for a few seconds before sitting up. I went to put my hand on his shoulder, but ended up patting his head again. He had fluffy hair.

(Bain's POV)
Eren kept patting my head and it was getting a little annoying. I was surprised when Maddalene had dropped her sword to her side. The guy adjacent to her gave a little smirk. It was getting a bit darker, but not by very much.

(Maddi)
I regain my wits quickly and tighten my grip on the hilt of my sword. I bring it to his throat again, wiping the smug smile off his face. "Submit," I bark at him, not taking my eyes off of his. He doesn't submit. We are still stuck in a staring contest.

(Eren's POV)
I heard bain flop down onto the ground again, and I lowered my hood again. It was only a few moments until sunset, and the sun was covered by a cloud. I could see better now, though things were still pretty bright.

(Bain's POV)
I watched Eren as she took off her hood and wrapped herself with her wings, keeping her eyes closed, as far as I could see, the whole time. Then, top my surprise, laid down on the ground next to me and seemingly fell asleep.

(Cyrus)
I blink, losing the staring contest for power I did it intentionally. Power is everything to Maddalene, daughter of the Pit. Without power, she's nothing.
She sheathes her sword. "Take keeping your head a thank you for the jacket." She's about to turn around and keep walking, she remembers I still have her by the wrist. "Let go." She snarls at me.
I do the opposite. I tighten my grip and bring her closer, doing something I've wanted to do since I met her. I meet her in the middle and kiss her.

(Maddi)
I could tell the kiss was supposed to be sweet and lovely, but the sweet turns to bitter and the love turns to bile. I shove him back as hard as I can with my free hand, sending him to the ground. No one kisses Tartarus, therefore no one kisses his daughter.
I grab Bain, my nails almost breaking the skin of his wrist. I leave. I don't need Eren, all I need is Bain, the temple, and 15 other demigods to do my bidding.
The rest, I can do myself.

(Bain's POV)
Maddalene's nails were digging into my wrist, and I let out a small yelp. She tugged me away, looking furious.

(Eren's POV)
I looked up just in time to see Bain being taken away by Maddalene. I got up and made to follow, tucking my wings into place as I went. It was really dark now, and I could see just fine.

There was a sudden rumbling of the ground that was violent enough to knock everyone and everything down seconds. Then the building rebuild themselves, the people of the towns started walking backwards, none of them aware of it. It was Monday afternoon again, the start of the week.

Eren fainted after being sent to the Blank Room, too much to bear.

(Maddi)
I was having a strange feeling of deja vu. As if I have been in this ill lighted room with the table in the middle. My head hurts and voices crackles through the speaker of my walkie-talkie. I bring it up to my ear.
"Hey, Maddi? Adam here. Some sort of time thing just happened."
"Define 'time thing'." I speak into the walkie-talkie.
"Time travel backwards. I was able to get the Chaos twins with me, but the others are kinda...I don't know how to put it. Dazed kind of?"
"You're not helping Adam." I want to throw the walkie-talkie at the wall, but instead I focus my attention on the five people I tied up in the room, excluding Cyrus. "I'm asking this once: Who are you people?!"
The redhead speaks first. She has an annoying tone to her voice. "How do you not know of who I am? Do you live under a rock or something?"
"Actually, I do. But I want to know who in the Gods' names you are ."
She scoffs but doesn't say anything.

(Bain's POV)
"Uhh..." he began, "I'm supposed to be going on a hike through Death Valley right now... My name's Bain Keirston." he shifted. The ropes binding his ankles and wrists were chafing his skin. He could get out pretty easily if he wanted, especially since they were so tight, but decided not to, for fear of great expense.

(Eren's POV)
Eren could feel her eye (forgot which one it was, so bear with me rn) throbbing with every beat of her heart, and she rolled so that she was facing the floor. She was covered in blood and was silently swearing under her breath about her whole ordeal. "Eren." She finally spoke, and left it at that.

(Cyrus)
I was bound and gagged. I was not able to speak at all, just make unintelligible sounds.
"Shut it, Cyrus!" Maddalene yells at me. "I bound you for a reason, don't make me regret not cutting your head off!"
I shut up after that.

(Vertice)
Who did this lady think she was? How did she not know who I was? She looks really agitated and I didn't want to piss her off more after what she said to that blonde boy.
"Vertice," I say. "I cannot believe you don't know who I am."

(Elise's POV)
"I'm Elise Draste." I spoke, 'raising' my hand as much as I could (she just kinda put her hand at 90 degree angle and yea you get where i'm going... i hope) "And i'm an evil gemstone that's come to blow up the earth." (the basic plot of Steven Universe for the first few seasons. I say this bc she's covered in glitter and has red eyes xD Also, her persona is like the class-clown type of person)

"Cyrus. Speak." I say as I take the gag out of his mouth.
He takes a deep breath and with as much power as he could possibly use, yells, "Shut up, everybody!"
I put the gag back in his mouth. "Thank you, Cyrus." I then start to use the speech I spoke that day two years ago. "Anyone who speaks out against me, I will not hesitate to cut your head off. If I untie you, how many of you will turn against me instantly? Raise your head, don't be shy."

Bain, Eren and elise just sit there. Elise looks bored, Bain looks a bit scared, and Eren...Well, you can't see because she's still looking at the floor, therefore her expression doesn't really matter. Bain's still fidgeting, Elis yawns, and Eren is silent, save some occasional sneezing.
