They shot a mildly irritated look at Bones. "Yeah. Generally, when I comment on someone's clothes, they feel entitled to comment on mine. And to be quite fugging honest, I'm not in the goddamn mood." Which in all likelihood meant he was going to comment on it now. God fucking damn it. Whatever. They snorted. "Oh, buddy, you don't even know." Everything was predetermined - no one had a choice about anything.

Oh great, now the child was telling them to say fuck? "Sure I can. Sometimes I do, even. Most the time I don't, and it's a waste of breath to tell me to do otherwise." Some of the random aspects that made up the finer details of who Cat was as a person weren't really meant to be understood. That's just who they were.

They took hold of the umbrella as it was poked into their chest, managing to keep their face blank. "How about water?" They didn't take kindly on people just barging in and demanding drinks - they had a history of the opposite, even.

APPEARANCE   dress me up and watch me die
⇥ Catalyst is 6'2" tall; they possess a lean and muscular body, one that has a variety of old scars adorning it. One of the easiest to notice is one that stretches down their right cheek. While not a scar, one very notable marking on their chest is the "BL" brand. They have two piercings, one in their tongue and the other in the cartilage of their left ear. They typically dress in dark colors (favoring jackets with some sort of writing on the back), and their hair is black.

PERSONALITY   if it feels good, tastes good, it must be mine
⇥ Catalyst is ambitious, with the cunning and ruthlessness to reach their goals by any means necessary. They can be brutal when they feel it is needed, however when it's not they won't bother. They tend to be rather aloof and apathetic to most things and people, with some very rare exceptions. Provided those around them don't cross a few specific lines, they're content to leave them be, though they've been known to take an interest in some people, which seldom has a positive end for whoever their interest is in. They can be manipulative, and will often encourage people to make bad decisions. Those that stick by them will be rewarded, but those that do not will be cast out, as they've been outcast for their entire life and have learned to appreciate loyalty wherever they can find it. Even during the most stressful of situations, they usually keep a firm grip on their temper and keep their calm, though when they do snap and lose their temper, it is uncontrollable. They're remarkably observant, often able to deign much from subtle clues in what people say, how they say it and how they act.

//I got permission to pp Paige

"I wouldn’t put it past you to throw that thing on me." Well, okay, ouch. They were an asshole, but did she really think they were the type of asshole to do pranks? Or was this worse than a prank? If it was worse than a prank it was back in their area, but really... They weren't mean just to be mean. Mostly.

"I wouldn't blame her for staying up there; I wouldn't trust you with a spider either, captain." Ugh, and Salem agreed with her, just great. Did they really seem like that type of person? Apparent-fucking-ly. They put their free hand to their heart before quickly moving it back to corral the spider.

Spider corralled, they glanced back up at their small audience. "I'm hurt, truly. How monstrous you must think I am to use someone's fears again... yeah no that's fair." And what they'd done was worse than throwing a spider at someone. "Do I look like I'm scared of a fugging spider bite?" A human biting their hand would be a different story, obviously, but a spider bite was inconsequential to them. A mild inconvenience until it healed at worst.

They turned their gaze to Addy, staring him hard in the face for several long seconds. "Addy, your wit has won my respect in the past, so I'm going to give you a minute to come up with something that isn't so goddamn shameful." They shook their head and turned away from him, and Paige and Salem. "Alright, you guys win. I'll put it outside." The headed to the doors with that, returning a minute later with empty hands that hung at their side.

Flintlock Lodge / Re:  i put the sing in single \\ meeting 8.18 
« Last post by WN100 on Yesterday at 11:04:21 PM »
Stability was something that only strangers yearned for. Zero had resigned himself to a chaotic life long ago — he followed the ocean tides and the wind; he did as he was told. To stay in one place would be a failure on his part, and no matter how often he wished for his place back in the precinct, it was not something he could truly have again. Would that change one day? It would have to. Everything does. The end to a transient lifestyle, how does he feel about that thought now that it has entered his mind? He feels unsure, then he feels nothing. WN100 clears the thoughts from his mind and focuses instead on facts and evidence: the circles underneath Hayley's eyes, the unsteady, worn posture. He assumes that Ellie's disappearance had affected her as much as it had Harrison.

Would he be missed? There seems to be a high probability that Flintlock would simply forget, or assume that he had left as many other transient people must have. But were he to not go home, would they miss him? Or would they only miss the completion of his mission? It's an destabilizing thought, and he spends most of the time that it takes for the room to settle calming his own thoughts. Zero places himself out of the crowd, against a wall where he could make direct eye contact with those that he knew, should he choose to do so. Other new members might question meetings, but it seemed a logical development to him. It was a way to ensure that all were caught up on developments. That is important. Acknowledging change is important.

dark circles had made themselves at home once more beneath her eyes, and that look of haunting and grief lingered in her gaze. no one had died, but looking at the brunette, you'd think someone must have. she hadn't looked like that, looked so distraught, since she'd buried her husband. even then, she was arguably closer to the one she'd lost this time then she had been with jackson. she'd known this person longer, she'd had more surety after all was said and done that this person wouldn't... go away.

but ellie was gone, and hayley was reminded once more that nothing, and no one, was forever.

as she stood at the front of the living room, the dull lighting of the fireplace made the shadows on her face grow larger. it made her look more tired, more desperate, more pained. ❝meeting time.❞ she called quietly, clark resting in the crook of her arm, and she stayed quiet until the silence settled over the room to match her.

VICTOR "ZERO" ORION ARMANI VIturned on one too many times

— Victor Orion Armani: Victor is Roman name meaning "victor, conqueror" in Latin. Orion is a name of uncertain origin, but he's named after the constellation Orion. Armani is an Italian name meaning "warrior." Victor is the fourth Victor Armani in his family, the name is passed down haphazardly, often after coronation (Victor is the third youngest in his family).
— Victor hates his name, and the connotations and expectations that come with being a Victor. Instead, he's chosen to take the nickname Zero, representing the reset he's laid to stop this ridiculous naming habit. He uses exclusively Zero, unless you're his wife or his mother, both of whom can call him whatever they want.
— Zero is a man, using he/him pronouns.
— October 20 / Libra-Scorpio cusp / 36
— Zero was born in Asphodel, where he remains to this day.
— Zero is bisexual, with no preference. Zero is currently married to Belladonna Armani, quite happily so.

— Talking to themselves, foot tapping, gesturing while talking, crossing arms over chest, putting hands on hips, rubbing the back or their neck, running hands through hair, nostril flaring, pacing, fist clenching, pinching bridge of nose, rubbing temples
— Always stands with his hands behind his back, never really "relaxes" his stance, walks with authority, speaks rather formally at all times, refers to people by their last names whenever possible, snarls for "no", shrugs for "maybe," gives convoluted answers to questions
— Zero has depression and minor chromesthesia.
— No allergies.

— Zero's eyes are a vivid shade of blue. His eyes are often void of any discernible emotion, in a neutral expression.
— Zero's hair is dark brown, long and straight. Often mussed and sticking up at odd angles thank to Zero's habit of messing with it.
— Zero is very pale - and Asphodel's underground world doesn't help that.
— Strong, filled out, but tall.
— 6'3, 184 pounds.
— Zero is pretty scar-free, aside from a nasty looking scar on his jawline from a training accident.
— Zero's part of the Asphodel ""royal"" lineage, a family that went underground after coming to Asphodel's land from Europe.

— Serious, formal, passive, firm, altruistic (when needed), humorless, logical, introverted, (killjoy), punctual, protective, stoic, cautious, thorough, confidential, noncompetitive, reserved, calculating, critical, mechanically minded
— True neutral
— Zero is a very serious man. He takes everything in with careful thought, and thinks carefully about everything before he does anything.
— Severely introverted, though he doesn't often hit his people limit because of how little he speaks to people.
— He's very neutral in all he does, he tries to take everything with an open mind.

Content warning for: sibling death Zero is the third youngest in his family. Born in Asphodel, Zero's family had been leading the group for quite some time before he came into existence - well before the blackout. Zero was third in line to lead, and didn't expect to lead Asphodel at any time soon. That of course, changed when his sister and brother passed away after a tunnel collapsed on them during an exploration accident. Zero was unprepared, and very inspired to make sure nobody went past the wall. His father was getting on in years, and died when Zero was 29. Zero was crowned king of Asphodel, and life has been about the same.

— Very neutral. Very much keeps his cards to his heart.
— Often very stubborn and unlikely to change his mind after things are decided - but he doesn't make a lot of decisions after careful thought. The only person that can really sway his mind is his wife.
— Sings, but not so much anymore. Zero didn't do it often, but it is very lovely.
— Very formal. Very quiet. Very much the tall, mysterious stranger.
— Unfortunately, he hasn't got much of a sense of humor.
— Very fond of the underground. He doesn't feel super comfortable aboveground.

The Badlands / The Border A MIGHTY OCEAN | JOINING
« Last post by A. MERCER on Yesterday at 10:51:40 PM »
Atlas had never figured the world would end. Like everyone else, he'd seen it coming in an abstract sorta way. People got too damn powerful, cared more about what they could do than what they should. Spent too much time caring about the future to care about each other. So sure he'd seen it coming, but that still didn't mean he expected it. It's like knowing Earth'll get roasted by the sun one day — you know it's coming but you can't even begin to imagine it happening. You just think you'll never live long enough to see it. But he had, him an' his dog. Nothing much had changed for Jericho. The dog was still a lazy bastard, sleeping all day for as long as he could, curling up on whatever musty old couch they crashed on for the night. And Atlas, maybe he hadn't changed much either. It all changed but nothing changed at the same time, that's just how it goes.

He's trodding towards nothing with slow, heavy steps, and he's been heading down that same goddamn path for a decade now. Aimless. Nothing left to walk towards. It'd be an easier life if he'd just stayed in his house with someone he thought he'd spend the rest of his life with, but the world loved surprising him. Always had something to say or something to toss in his way.

He'd heard about the groups out here; figured it'd be a good place to start over, test the waters with socialization and shit. Turns out it's already not his thing. Jericho's taken a liking to a shady patch of grass and dozed off while his owner stands on cracked asphalt and waits for — something. Didn't seem like he could just walk on up and claim a house, right? Doesn't mean he's not considering it. "Gonna have to shave you in this heat, Jer," he grunts to an answering snore. "Fuckin' bum."
