GODLY PARENT Hecate, goddess of magic and choice
POWERS illusion manipulation; LuΓ­s is able to create and manipulate illusions
psychometry; the power to perceive the residual information of an object and/or person by using senses. LuΓ­s has a particularly impressive level of skill when it comes to reading both things and people with his abilities. Unlike most Hecate children, he does not require physical contact to pick up information, instead only needing to be in somewhat close proximity. This also means that when physical contact is made, he is capable of seeing extremely clear interpretations of said information.
force field generation; the ability to project powerful fields of manipulated energy in order to protect oneself and/or others. LuΓ­s' shields are of the typical strength found with most Hecate demigods, with the greater strength and size of the shield causing a greater tax on his mind and body.
RELATIONSHIP WITH GODLY PARENTthe Balceiro twins are not especially close with their mother, having more of a business-like arrangement with the goddess. They can talk comfortably without arguing, but there is always a slight chill, a lack of emotional attachment, at least on the twins' side of things.

STRENGTHS
XXXconfident | LuΓ­s is a man that can melt into any setting with comfort and ease. He can speak comfortably and openly without shyness or self-consciousness, for he is completely and utterly comfortable in his own skin.
XXXloyal | his kindness bleeds into a sense of unbreakable loyalty. Living in a world of sly deals and malicious, ambition-driven wickedness may have rubbed off on someone else, but now he's the opposite. He treasures such traits and exemplifies them perfectly as well.
XXXpeople | LuΓ­s carries a natural likability in his demeanour that he tends to draw people to him effortlessly. He is friendly and polite, with a compassionate streak that many find winning.

WEAKNESSES
XXXvindictive | Kind as he may seem, LuΓ­s' dark streak is nothing short of frightening. When someone falls out of his favour, they often come to regret it. The Balceiro's hold grudges, and LuΓ­s is especially remorseless.
XXXpeople-pleaser | whilst there are aforementioned strengths to this trait, LuΓ­s' tendency to have people like him also drives a level of indecision in him. He knows when he is being used, but he always seems to allow it. People take advantage, and he never does anything to stop it. He likes being liked, to a somewhat unhealthy level, and is overly pacifistic at times.
XXXaimless | LuΓ­s lacks his sister's ambition to the point of having little to know drive for the future. He is responsible for other people, but seldom for himself, and is so used to having everything handed to him that he is seemingly settled in the idea that hard work is not something he'll ever have to involve himself in.

QUIRKS AND HABITS
XXXtaste | LuΓ­s has a strangely exact sense of taste, and is often able to pick apart meals and find all of their ingredients in just a few bites.
XXXbilingual | LuΓ­s is fluent in both Portuguese and English

β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬
PERSONALITY LuΓ­s is a bit of a cipher, made all the more cryptic through his apparent normality. On the surface, he seems a confident and charismatic young man, an individual always accompanied by a charming epigram and a sideways smile. But then there are the moments when something upsets him; perhaps someone makes a churlish remark about his sexuality, or a crude jest concerning his sister. In those moments, his smile might tremor, and his starry gaze suddenly dulls, eyes shifting to something cold and dead. It is these instances in which LuΓ­s betrays a darker side to himself, a stereotype of what Hecate-born are expected.
And then it will shatter again, the causer of the split-second rage will continue, perhaps the conversation will turn to antique furniture, there will be the occasional laugh, the clink of glasses, the ruddying of cheeks as more alcohol is ingested. Everything will seemingly return to as it was the moment before.
But then the culprit will see something at the edge of their vision, something that strikes them to the core. A figment of imagination, conjured from their nightmares. They'll spend the rest of the evening looking over their shoulder, trying to comfort themselves with excuses. I've just had a little too much to drink. My imagination is getting away with me. I'm being paranoid. But the nightmare won't go away. It gets closer, so close that its breath can be felt on the culprit's neck, its hand on their shoulder, its gaze on their back. The culprit will turn, and their worst fear will cloud their vision. Pain through their core, biting, burning. The culprit will scream, and collapse, perhaps even faint.

And whilst all this is happening, where will LuΓ­s be? Smiling over a game of cards, or gossiping over drinks, his smile bright and his words smooth. And as the source of his prior ire screams, as scalding horror rushes through them, and everyone rushes to their aid, the coldness will return, and a satisfied smirk will tug at his lips.

Such is the personality of this son of Hecate. A sometimes blurred mass of contrasting traits that never fail to unnerve people when completely revealed. His vindictive side is something he has no shame in, and he exercises his ability to doll out revenge with almost frightening regularity. He is a man (no, a boy) that does not like to be wronged, and when he is, he is a someone that will most certainly do what he can to get even, and then some.

This all being said, LuΓ­s is not a monster. In fact, he is typically quite enjoyable company, with a bold personality that often places him in the centre of attention in the better sort of way, the target of praise and encouragement. He is more introvert than extrovert, but can play either side of the court with ease. His is impish, often playing tricks and games on the unsuspecting, and although he sometimes crosses what should be his limits, he is certainly not the type to play a cruel joke on an undeserving individual. His humour is of the witty variety, and his is rarely without a quick quip to respond with. More so, he is a charismatic individual, a good people-person, for the most part. He has a way with charming people, and despite being a total flirt, does not toy with emotions or view people as conquests. He sometimes teases his sister for her constant friendship-hunting, but in truth, he is not especially dissimilar, albeit more subtle. He is someone that has no bias with people, greeting everyone as equals and potential friends as opposed to strangers and possible enemies. He is happy to listen, and open to offer advice, with most of the advice he dishes out being surprisingly sound.

HISTORY
Raul Balceiro's story is nothing if not a rags-to-riches tale. Born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil to a single mother struggling with illness, Raul spent his former years in poverty.
as a child and young teen, he engaged in pick-pocketing and spent time with gangs. Initially, he hoped to rise in the ranks of the gang which he was initiated into. However,
that changed when he saw a gentleman step out of the most glamorous car Raul had ever laid eyes on. The man himself was glamorous too, decked out in expensive fashions as he made is way into an fancy hotel. A young man walked along beside him, speaking in a hurried tone about meetings and times and committees and so on and so forth.

For whatever reason, Raul was transfixed. He didn't want violence and drugs and petty money. He wanted success. He wanted power. At eighteen, he made his way to the US, and took out a massive student loan. As he studied business and commerce, he worked day and night to keep on top of his staggering loan. When he earned his degree several years later, he had taught himself fluency in English and persisted for months just to get a meeting with the wealthy executives whom he wished to impress.
When he finally did, his ideas shocked them. They were innovative. Creative. Brilliant.

Raul got not only job, but the go ahead to advance his ideas.

At only twenty six, he had his own business.
Then he had a small fortune.
Then he had a large fortune.
By the time he was in his early thirties, Raul was a self-made millionaire.

Raul met Her at a hotel party in celebration of a recent, successful business deal. She was stunning, as goddesses tended to be, and he was instantly stunned. She matched him wit for wit, and carried a charisma that was nothing if not hypnotic.

The affair was short-lived, and a part of Raul knew from the beginning that it would not work out. Hecate was too free, to clearly already prepared in her escape of the relationship. But for a time, they enjoyed each other, and when the two twins appeared in Raul's life, he did not hesitate to keep them there.

When their powers began to reveal themselves, Hecate returned once more, this time with the intention of telling Raul the truth about herself. Raul took a while to understand,
as most would, but when he did, he was amazed by his children rather than fearful of them. However, Hecate's words of advice regarding the twins' safety was anough to convince him to send them both the Theos.
