And the titans isn't our only problem anymore. A Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan RP where the canon peeps have been ditched between Jessica2477 and I. Our respective characters: Finhawk - Deke Ramon Name: Deke Ramon Age: 18 Appearance: Deke stands at 165 cm (5'5'') with a weight of 54 kg (119 lbs). His body has lightly tanned skin and is pretty lean with slight muscle. Deke's brown hair is always cut short and he absolutely refuses to let it grow out even an inch. The boy's most eye catching feature is probably his bright green eyes that tend to stand out from the rest of him. Personality: Cheeky and somewhat bratty. Deke doesn't seem to take many things as seriously as he should and can be quite annoying if he wants to. The boy is usually quite overconfident and somewhat stubborn. He isn't one to stand still for too long either and grows bored rather fast if there's nothing for him to occupy himself with. However, Deke usually keeps on a happy face and his spirit isn't that easily crushed. He remains positive most of the time and refuses to believe he won't be able to dig himself out of whatever trouble he might be in. The lad is also quite loyal as a friend but getting on his bad side isn't recommended. Deke tends to carry grudges to the bitter end and can act quite immature when it comes to those he doesn't like. Bio: Deke hails from Wall Rose's Karanese District. Both his parents joined the military and Deke was mostly taken care of by his aunt while he was growing up. Deke's mother is a part of the Military Police while his father enlisted in the Survey Corps much to his wife's disapproval. Turns out the man should have listened to her as he never made it back from his first expedition. This was also why Deke's mother strongly disagreed when the kid turned 12 and announced he wanted to join the military as well. It wasn't until three years later when Deke finally stopped listening to his mother's protests and signed up. His mother obviously wasn't pleased but since she couldn't really stop him, she simply told him to work his ass off and join the Military Police as well. Despite his efforts, Deke didn't rank high enough when he graduated to do what his mother wanted him to. Though, that was merely a convenient excuse as he had had no intention of becoming part of the Military Police in the first place. In the end, Deke decided to join the Survey Corps mainly to piss off his mother. Skills: The lad is rather agile and adept at using the Three Dimensional Maneuver Gear and he's quick to make decisions when it's needed. However, whether those decisions are good is up for debate. Deke isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the box and doesn't think things fully through most of the time. He's not the best team player either. Other: Deke loves any kind of fresh fruits and has a distaste for meat. He also likes rain and has gotten himself sick way too many times by spending time just standing outside in rain. Jessica2477 - Lionel de Haven "You're either incompetent or a coward. Go ahead and cry all you want, I'll handle things from here..." "Our different judgement is the result of different experiences. Ignorance has nothing to do with it- at least not now." "Once I'm dead, there will be no one to protect you... I'll keep fighting until I have nothing to keep me going." Name: Lionel de Haven Age: 18 Appearance: Lionel stands at 172 centimeters (5'8) and weighs 154 lbs with only 4% body fat, meaning the extra weight is mainly muscle. His skin holds a slight tan with a lean and noticeably strong physique. He has dirty blonde hair kept somewhat long though his bangs are cut high enough to keep from getting in the way. He holds hazel eyes and a scar under his eye from a Titan attack many years ago. Personality: Opposite of his good friend, Lionel is often level headed and does what he can to keep himself together in front of comrades, friends, and superior figures. He also is a compassionate being who does do good when he can, because he doesn't want to be remembered as a horrible person. He is seen as an "older brother" figure over those he cares for, and those that hold a special place are protected and sought-after excessively. After losing his mother, Lionel didn't want to have to go through the same pain again. Though he understands he is over protective and cold hearted, it is something that cannot be helped. It is a trait Lionel will and can never change for anyone. However, the only person that would be able to get him overwhelmed is Deke. Biography: Lionel had been born and raised within the Walls of Maria, where he and his parents resided in a small home just away from the main town. They lived a happy life until something occurred that caused a hole in the wall. He had been playing outside when a large piece of gravel struck him, cutting him deeply and nearly fracturing his cheek. The hit itself caused him to hit his head when he fell back and was knocked unconscious. When he awoke, he was on a ship to Wall Rose with his father and what he could carry on his back. It was on that ship that he was told his mother was dead, and every day still holds deep regrets about not telling her he loved her and thanking her for everything she has done. He and his father soon moved into a small house in Karanese District, where he befriended Deke. As they grew up, he went from a traumatized and shy child to what he was today. He had grown very fond of him despite his immaturity and cheeky behavior. Because he feared that he would lose his best friend and the idea of Wall Rose being attacked, he joined the military alongside Deke. He ranked number one in the trainee squad and joined the Recon Corps alongside his friend. Since his father was growing quite old and was becoming ill with an unknown disease, he figured he would be able to look at what was beyond the walls and tell him all about it. He and his father Bernard had received word of Wall Maria being reclaimed and stable again, but they decided to stay in Rose to be safe rather than sorry. Skills: He is extremely agile, holds catlike reflexes, and his combat skills surpass most of the Recon Corps members. His wits are sharp and is known to make quick decisions last-minute and listens to whatever orders are given to him. However, his need to protect is greater than his common sense. Deke can be his greatest asset or his biggest downfall given the situation. Not only that, but if he is upset, his combat and reflexes decrease drastically. Other: Lionel is the type of guy to donate his dinner to children if he sees they are hungry. He has to wear a medical mask when he visits his father and urges any guests he brings to do the same. Deke "Hey Lionel, do you think humans taste good? Do you think we taste any good?" Deke cocked his head slightly as he voiced his question, not really sparing as much as a glance at his friend. The young man didn't really know whether he expected Lionel to actually give him an answer or not. Deke was simply getting bored of travelling and his back was starting to ache from riding a horse. So thinking about what he might taste like if he got eaten in the near future was obviously what a normal person would entertain themselves with. Alright, maybe not a normal person but it wasn't that out of the ordinary for Deke. A small grin formed on the lad's face as he opened his mouth again, "I hope I taste horrible." If he was going to be lunch, he damn well wished the titan eating him wouldn't enjoy its snack and got indigestion as a bonus. A titan might actually get to snack on Deke soon enough as he had been crazy enough to join the Survey Corps and everyone knew what happened to most newbies of that branch. However, nothing bad, including being eaten, could never happen to him with Mr. mother hen following him around. Deke gave said hen, his ever faithful Lionel, a quick glance. The two of them had been more or less glued together ever since Lionel popped up in the Karanese District all those years ago. It kind of annoyed Deke, especially when the other wanted to play the knight in the shining armor, but he didn't want to think about what he'd do without his unofficial shadow either. He very much enjoyed hanging out with his friend and therefore Deke was just going to have to deal with Lionel's infuriating mission to watch his every step. After all, Lionel was putting up with his annoying ass so it was just common courtesy of him to do the same, right? However, Deke had a hunch him joining the Survey Corps had at least something to do with Lionel being there beside him and that pissed him off. What if the other teen was the one to get eaten? That was quite unlikely considering Lionel was some kind of god's gift to slaying titans judging by their training alone but it was still a possibility and honestly, it terrified Deke. Which was exactly why he'd rather not think about it and he focused on the biggest reason he joined the suicide candidates in the first place, his nagging mother. It was probably one of the worst reasons of making yourself titan bait but he didn't really care. Sadly, he most likely wasn't going to see her face when she hears the news. The people had started to fall under some kind of disease lately so setting foot in and out of the inner wall had been restricted to avoid further spreading and as a part of the Military Police, his mother was kind of stuck there. She probably didn't mind though, she was safe there, from the titans and from the disease. Deke scowled slightly as he thought about it, she wasn't going to be home when he got there this time either. He might be visiting home for the last time and his mother was safe and sound along with the rest of the douches. He hated her. Sonja, his aunt however was going to be in that simple old house like she always had been. That woman was more like a mother to him than his real mother has ever been. Which was why he was hoping she hadn't caught the same weird disease Lionel's father had. Which sounded bit of a douchebag thing to hope considering his friend was probably worried sick about his only family left. Though it was nothing more than a weird flu that would blow over in no time so there was no real reason to worry, right? Just as Deke was about to ask Lionel about his thought on the matter, he spotted something further ahead that made his face lit up like a kid's on a Christmas morning: a gate. A gate behind which the Karanese District was located, the place Deke preferred to simply refer as home. "Yesh! It was about time!" The lad spread his arms wide as they drew nearer the gate and announced his arrival to the gatekeeper with a wide grin on his face, "Your lord and savior and his loyal servant have returned. Let us pass." The surly man surely wasn't as amused as the comedian himself.
