AHAHAH I LIED. OTL got some time before I go on vacation decided to finish this finally -3- ~~
note: He's grumpy. And not afraid to tell you to buzz off. Also, considering who/what he is I will refuse/drop any rps that go towards fighting of any sort.
◊ Name: Mereus Arlen (Though only a few people throughout time have ever heard his first name. Everyone only knows him by his last) ◊ Age: 8628 ◊ Gender: Male ◊ Height: 7'4'' ◊ Job : Headmaster of the Levea water magic university. Healer. ◊ Species: Water Dragon ◊ Fitting theme music:Grand mountains and flowing water 高山流水, Dragon Palace, Blue Fields (orchestra) ◊ Voice clip sample: [link] ◊ Scent: Violet and neroli mingled with iris, white sandalwood ,dark musk, and a brush of Levean spices. ◊ Abilities:
Very high level water manipulation. These days mainly used for healing, but can also be used in combat with great efficiency. When healing he can either use normal summoned water, or a type that is heavy with his personal energy. When in the second case it takes on a deep, icy-blue hue and has a slick, crystal sheen; its healing abilities are far more effective.
Able to breathe underwater
Able to summon and use his dragon's wings only. Enabling him to fly.
Able to shift fully into his natural dragon form. (Size being from snout tip to tail tip 100ft, though not very tall.) When in dragon form a new set of skills becomes available such as breath weapon among other things, but also his spells aswell.
◊ Weapons: Now days he does not use any weapons. However he has been trained in, and is practiced in using such weapons as spears, swords and bows.
◊ History: Born before the war between Deamond and Helia even began, he lived his first years in training under another dragon that would eventually become his first wife. Unfortunately. (She's probably still alive somewhere... *sigh* ) He became one of the nation's most respected scholars and was often consulted on matters of all sorts. His specialty was nature, anthropology, and tactics. Once the war did start, he left to join the Caelian army and eventually became Helia's General of Defense. Over the thousands of years the war raged, the reason he had joined began to differ further and further from what it had become. Eventually, a few hundred years before Caelius and Ares were to be banished he deserted, coming to live in the neutral territories that would eventually form Earthra. Covering his desertion very well, he faded into the haze of time taking one more wife who died of natural causes then eventually coming to open the school in Levea. He never speaks of his past with the war and makes it quite clear he wants nothing to do with it now. He's not even sure if Ivalina herself knows of his involvement, not does he care as long as he's left alone. ◊ Personality:
Very stoic and blunt. If he dislikes you he will become even colder and has no problem putting anyone down or pointing out the obvious flaws in one's character.
•Can be particularly manipulative. Having interacted with all sorts of people for thousands of years he has come to be able to guess what few words need to be said in order to hurt someone or get them to do what he wants.
•Very strict with rules and ideals. He believes everyone should be proper to eachother no matter what station of life you come from. Also dress properly. Never has been a fan of women, or men for that matter, that dress flashily or scantily.
•Rarely does he come to hate anyone. But also just as rarely has he come to love anyone. Most people remain in a rather neutral zone for him. Also, unless you are his long dead rival suddenly come back to life, don't expect much of a reaction in general as he's more than a little jaded.
◊ Likes: Teaching, relaxing, playing a few of the instruments he has trained in, speaking with Naia. Trolling Dorian and Alex. ◊ Dislikes: Alexis Smith. Dorian Arethousa. Fried potatoes. Over confident people. ◊ Additional Information:
Can play the zither, ehru, flute, and piano.
◊ People of Significance:
Arean Necromancer Ahriman: For millenia Ahri was Arlen's most intense rival during the old war. After his 'resurection' with the return of the two nations, the continued to be such. However.. they eventually came to realize that despite the years of fighting the two had -many- things in common. Among which was simply having survived this long. After years of drastic changes to both men, and sometimes having to rely on one another to get through them, whether thy liked it or not, the ended up becoming more than best friends. Though both were still not particularly interested in admitting such a fact for a very long time.
Earthran General Naia Arethousa: Met her for the first time when she was about seventeen. Her brother and she had come to the University in Levea, passing through as they were always on the move it seemed. Almost instantly the dragon took a liking and infatuation to her. Ten years later he invited her to the University for a while to be his personal pupil, despite his making a point of never taking on a student himself. Unfortunately he found her engaged to Alexis Smith by this time...Now he helps her take care of her three children as often as he can. Their family has actually become his own, and he loves them all (well, not so much Dorian and Alex of course) quite fiercely.
Earthran Scout Alexis Smith: Strongly believes he is no good for Naia and has gone quite out of his way to make sure the hunter knew this. However despite his best efforts he has come to understand that it just wasn't meant to be between himself and this man's wife.
Earthran General Dorian Arethousa: Hot headed idiot. Seriously disliked him upon first meeting and only feels stronger in that regard as time has gone on. Would more than happily remove him from Naia's and Earthra's lives if such a thing was within his code... and Naia wouldn't hate him for it.
Neri: Naia's oldest child and more than a handful. He does his best to somewhat fill the parental gap thanks to both her actual parent's jobs.
Every detail is truly magnificent. I do have to say though, he is one tall bishounen; larger than life. Could probably squish all his fangirls like little ants Lovely, really. Again, thanks for sharing!
ahaah! Yes 8'D He's very old and dragon though so I thought it would be ok if he were taller than most humans 8D ... and I'm sure he appreciates that option (of squashing fan girls 8D *Shot* ) and thank -you- for looking and liking!
Heh, I don't think he will be enjoying my spazy harpy as a company... =w= He is probably going to make one very stupid comment and make him hated for the rest of his life. Anyways, good job on Arlen~ He looks so amazing and I am going to proceed to break the fav button.
