GODLY PARENT Zeus
POWERS Atmokinesis is hard and very connected to both will and emotion, and similar to his academics Arturo seems to lack much will to master his powers. He doesn't want to be a super hero and he's not interested in fighting any gods so what's the point? He has better things to do. It can be really cool sometimes though, he likes to make it rain when it suits him, takes a few hours to get a proper pour going though. Yuma, Arizona never saw so much rain as when he lived there. Electrical immunity is something that came naturally to Art, thank Zeus for that one otherwise various engine battery related mishaps probably would have killed him by now. Electrical flight however would sound like a hoax to him if he hadn't actually seen it done, he's not even close to attempting that shit yet.
RELATIONSHIP WITH GODLY PARENT He has Zeus to thank for more than a few traits probably; like the fact that he's low key an absolute perv. He's got some kinks and promiscuous tendencies that are no doubt a result of his breeding. Even if it's not he's going to blame it on Zeus anyway, might as well the bastard is never there to defend himself anyway. All in all he's ambivalent to his father. He won't trash talk the king of gods and is very happy to accept any favor, gifts or help from the deity, but he doesn't expect anything from him either. It's annoying that he doesn't get a proper father and that he's the son of a very prideful and expectant god and all but he's staunchly insistent that he's done just fine without him there. He's also confident enough to rise to the occasion of defending the concept of being a son of the god of gods.

STRENGTHS
XXXtinkering | He's good with his hands. His plan is to do some work either as a mechanic or handy man for dough when he's done with school. He's already got experience working in a shop and he's always been the one to mess with anything broken and figure it out. He always gets excited when he gets a hold of a new fixer upper car or bike.
XXXleader | He's charismatic and a smooth talker, and while he doesn't pay too much attention in school he's not a dummy either. He's smart enough to know which people are good at what and to assess a big picture, this along with his people skills and confidence usually put him in a leading position when the occasion arises. He's not pushy about needing to be the leader however, if someone else wants to step up then by all means, he'll fall in line with the rest of them.
XXXlover > fighter | He'll take kissing you to fighting you any day, and he's pretty convincing about it too.

WEAKNESSES
XXXacademics | He should probably take academics a lot more seriously that he does, but most subjects just don't interest him very much. He thinks science can be cool sometimes, he's more concentrated on the now to care too much about history, reading is kindof boring unless you're being read to, and who needs math when you can google the answer to everything? Working with his hands rather than his brain suits him better. He lack motivation for things he's not interested in.
XXXmother | Surprise! He's a momma's boy through and through. She can put the fear of god in him and he'd still be tugging on her skirt for attention. He adores his mother and anyone talking shit about her is gonna get clocked in the face. He does his best to listen to her demands and do his chores, he's naturally a slob though so he gets yelled at a lot. He genuinely feels bad whenever it happens though.
XXXfighter < lover | Those muscles are mostly for show, he's been in one maybe two scuffles in his life, both instances were someone talking shit about his mom.

QUIRKS AND HABITS
XXXhahaha | He tends to tease a lot, and if you give him a reaction he likes congratulations you've become his new favorite victim. He loves a good laugh and will bend over backwards for the sake of comedic timing and irony. He'll pull pranks, sometimes ranging on the mean side if he thinks you need to be knocked down a peg or are being annoying. But for the most part he doesn't set out to judge or be cruel to anyone, there are always those special particular assholes that he just can't resist though...
XXXsleeve Allergy | Arturo is allergic to sleeves, and sometimes to shirts in general. He'd probably walk around naked if it were socially acceptable to be entirely honest. Clothes just seem so bothersome to him.

PERSONALITY Arturo is a simple boy with simple desires, he’s not difficult to please. He just wants to fix cars and make love, maybe go to a movie on the weekends and go on a road trip once or twice a year. That’s the sort of life he has planned and what he’s convinced will satisfy him. He doesn’t have much ambition or motivation but admires it in others, he admires spunk and enthusiasm in general. If you’ve got dreams reach for the stars, he’ll cheer you on and help along the way. That’s the sort of friend he makes, a good supportive and loyal sort of person that wants the people he cares about to have everything they want and more. He gets a very honest and pure sort of kick in watching his friends and family succeed. He also makes a really hilarious companion, always up for laugh and with enough sense to know what you’ll find funny and entertaining. Arturo likes to please, and will go out of his way to accommodate a friend. He’s friendly enough to strangers and acquaintances but he doesn’t pay as close attention to them, and can be a bit ambivalent to their existence, but not in a cruel way. His attention is just elsewhere, usually on whatever or whomever he’s focused in on. Arturo’s manners were strictly beaten into his head by his mother, and are definitely more prevalent when she’s around but he’s not a rude boy by any means. He can be cheeky, but he’s not rude. Art’s the charismatic leader type in a laid back sort of way, happy to take the mantle when the need arises but happy to let someone else do it. As simple as Arturo is he can end up deeply daydreaming sometimes, usually during class. It’s why he scrapes up B’s at most and the majority of C’s and D’s for everything else. The fact that physically he’s very attractive and personally very charismatic and emotionally intelligent usually means he’s in general a well-liked guy, and he’s used to that sort of reception from the vast majority of people. This leaves him to very easily shrug off any sort of insult or dislike from a particular person, even see it as a fun challenge if he’s in the mood. Art is confident in himself and mindful of what the people he cares about think of him, but everyone else’s opinion can fuck off, no offense or anything but that’s just the way it is. He’s not one to be jerked around or taken advantage of, and woe to those who try that shit with any of his people.

HISTORY His mother won’t actually tell him much about Zeus, and what he does know he’s gotten from the man himself. His mother usually responds with curses and a rant about how he’s a useless good for nothing uppity son-of-a-bitch who should’ve been faithful to his wife. Zeus tells him he loved his mother and is still fond of her, but circumstances leave them best to be parted, her being a mortal and all. The real story he got from a third party one random day out on his motor-bike when he was fifteen. The first real brush with death he can recall. The story goes as follows;

β€œYou’ve grown boy, you’ll be a handsome one, more like your mother than like my husband. Good for you… You look confused. I know you know who your father is boy, and you ought to know he has a wife, a Queen. And you are no prince, you’re a stain, who should have died when you were an infant. Let’s see if these creatures can finish the job this time.”

And in the blink of an eye, as she had appeared, she was gone. Hera, Queen of the gods, had visited him, and before he knew what was happening rattlesnakes were slithering around his arms and legs. Arturo struggled and screamed to get the off, but by the time he did the damage had been done, he’d been bitten multiple times. The poison kicked in quickly, but he was still lucid enough to try to start his bike, which mysteriously was no longer working, probably thanks to Hera. Soon after he blacked out, and would have died if Hermes hadn’t been sent with a message of good will to Hera, and witnessed what she had done. Hermes rushed Arturo to Apollo, saving his life. In exchange however Arturo now owes a mortal debt to Apollo, a debt which hasn’t been collected and hangs in the back of his mind still. Thankfully he doesn’t technically owe Hermes a life-debt, but he’s grateful to the god nonetheless. As it turns out, Arturo and his mother were classically caught in the middle of the eternal drama of Zeus and Hera. Zeus seduced Arturo’s mother and lived with her for a while, and had him, until Hera found out and sent rattlesnakes to kill him in his crib one night. He was saved by the family dog, who valiantly died protecting him. His mother however, was furious, and kicked Zeus out soon after. Leaving Arturo to be raised by a single mother, along with an uncle and numerous cousins who made sure his existence was never dull or lonely. His uncle, a mechanic, stepped in as a father figure, and Zeus showed up once in a blue moon randomly. Not the worst life really, but little did he know that he’d made an enemy out of the Queen of gods. Which scared the living shit out of his mother, who sent him packing to Theos after the latest attack on his life. The whole thing is total bullshit.
