      In this world of secrets, nothing is as it seems, and the price of misplaced trust may even be worse than death.

      Those of us watching Cirque du Gothique from the outside could say everything seems splendid and admirable, however things are not always as they seem. What happens behind the curtain's rise and fall is just one giant enigma of this well names Circus.

      Behind thes curtains is a trouched unlivable environment. Those who take the stage are treated like nothing more then trash, slaves, seeing as most of them were either brought or kidnapped by the owners. If the owners are not pleased its up to the Ring Leader to punish and put them in their place. Though the owners themselves are rarly seen and when they are its with a mask. None know the faces of these two men.

      Once apon a time, most loved doing what they did however all that love is now lost and forgotten. The energy of the enwonderment which they brought to the stage, now lost in the darkened future. Some have tried to escape and have fail, being killed in the prosses. Most don't want to leave for the fear of their own lives and others simply want to make a change.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History:
    Dante lived a some what odd childhood. His mother, ever since a child, would dress him up in cute girlish things since he was the only Child she would ever had. His father hated him with a firy passion and would actually light the poor child on fire to get back at his wife, who paid more attention to Dante. However being lit on fire by his father was the least of his worries. Later he even found out they where not his real family. The reason was truly unknown but all those who'd ever been in his life would do such cruel things to him. At the age of 6 Dante runs away from home and spends a year on the streets before he was taken off to be sold at the black market where he was sold for countless of reasons. He kept being sold back to the black market do to his trouble making and unwillingness to break to them. It wasn't until he was 10 when he arrived at Cirque de Gothique. Apon arrival they trained him as a trapeze artest, and under such harsh training he found he actually enjoyed swinging around and doing tricks. With his new found love he worked hard to master it in 5 years at the age of 15 where he then became the star of the show. Even though he found something he loved his delinquent behavior was far from being broken. By the age of 20 he the elders (also know as owners) appointed him as their trusty Ringleader, even though he kept his delinquency, which was the reason they kept him close.

    12

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
    [​IMG]
    "Look all you want. I don't really care anymore."
    Height:
    5 ft 9 in

    Hair:
    jet black, cut short around the jawline so it frames his face in an odd appealing way


    Eyes:
    He has fiery red eyes that seem to glow in darkness, signifying that he may not be 100% human.


    Distinguishing Marks:
    He has two scars that run down the length of his back

    General Appearance:
    Usually seen wearing a white button down shirt and a black vest over it with similar black dress pants to match. He was always a trip for dressing nice, and it's just a habit now even if nobody really cares.


    Stage Appearance:
    Something like this-
    [​IMG]

    Strengths:
    He has a significant amount of charm and was once called a diamond in the rocks, but now he rarely shows that side of himself, though he is still quick the eye catcher.
    He has a heart of steel and it is near impossible to break him or make him snap. It would take an act of God to make him press his emotional and mental limits.
    He has a strong faith in himself and his capabilities, so he never doubts himself and manages to pull himself through in hardship.

    Weaknesses:
    He has no longer the ability to let people get close to him, he won't let anyone near his heart because he has shut himself out from the world. Just getting him to talk to you is a tough thing to do, unless he is familiar with you of course, then he might talk to you every now and then. But he isn't one to hold a conversation.
    He has zero social standing.
    He has a habit of not sleeping even though there are no physical signs that he is deprived of sleep, but sometimes he is a bit sluggish because of this, and if you watch you can tell when he is tired.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS
    [​IMG]
    "Stay out of my head please..."
    Current Goal/Purpose:
    To gain power enough to overthrow his family name and leave it in the dust where it belongs.

    Aspirations:
    To leave the circus one way or another and resume his climb of the ladder to power and wealth to meet his goal and fulfill his purpose that he has come to believe is what he literally lives to do.

    Hobbies:
    Writing in a little black book he keeps locked in his keepsakes box under his sad excuse for what he calls a bed.
    Walking around outside by himself and sometimes being heard muttering to himself.
    Reading the few books he managed to keep with him all this time.
    Sometimes can be heard humming.

    Talents:
    He can do a great many number of things that would seem impossible as a part of human nature, but he doesn't have any specific talents. One could say he is simply a jack of all trades in all things weird and un-ordinary.

    Inabilities:
    He can't swim well.
    He can't sing, so don't ask him to.
    He can't be social, literally he is incapable of being social.
    And he couldn't fight with a sword if his life depended on it.

    Fears:
    He is afraid of loosing everything that he still holds dear to him, that being his little black book, himself, and one or two of the other people at the circus.

    General Personality:
    Cold, anti-social, silent natured, slightly paranoid in large groups of people, likes to be alone, everything that you wouldn't expect from a normal human being. Will often talk to himself more than he will talk to others, even if it appears he is talking to those around him.


    HISTORIC BACKGROUND
    [​IMG]
    "Not much to tell. I'll save you the sob story though."
    General History:
    Vincent was a fairly normal human child at one point, living under one of the most powerful families in the view of the government, putting them at a high social and political power, often using that power to sway the actions of the government itself to their own benefit. But something went wrong and his parents fell into a debt with one of their benefactors, making them no longer able to fully support the growing child that was Vincent, so they dumped him on a street without cause or warning and sped off, never to be seen again. Vincent, being left on his own, learned how to fight for himself and he lived on, alone and keeping himself alive by slowly working his way back up the social pyramid that was his life. He would slowly gain power and social stature until he was stronger than his family and he could knock them down from their perch. He voluntarily joined the circus after he discovered there was a flaw in his mind that rendered him unable to control his actions upon becoming angered or severely frustrated, and he didn't want that to cause harm to somebody who could in later days be of use to him, so he sealed himself off in a way until he could control it. But alas when he learned how to control it, he found he could not leave as he had hoped, so he has been in the circus involuntarily for a great many years since then.​

    Stage Appearance (open)
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    (For stage appearance, her face is also powdered white, I just couldn't find an accurate picture)

    Strengths:
    Good hand-eye coordination, can adapt to nearly any situation.

    Weaknesses:
    Clumsy, low self-confidence, somewhat naïve.

    More:
    She gives off a feeling that although she is there, she isn't. Sorta like a lost feeling or a feeling where she doesn't belong here. (That makes sense, right?)

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose:
    Currently all Luna would like to do is feel like she belongs somewhere (and make friends, but that's all part of the plan).

    Aspirations:
    All she wants to do is live a life where she can make good friends and protect them. She believes that by doing this she can become happy, and therefore live a good life.

    Hobbies:
    Reading any book she can get her hands on, pranks, juggling, acting.

    Talents:
    Juggling, acting, making younger kids laugh.

    Inabilities:
    She cannot intentionally kill or harm somebody in any way whatsoever. If she did it would crush her. Also, while she is very agile and flexible, she sucks at fighting, making her virtually useless in a fight unless she were throwing rocks or small objects at the enemy.

    Fears:
    She has an uncommon fear of games that unknown to her, as in she is afraid of them until you tell her the rules. She is also extremely nervous around fire and chains/ropes, and has a smaller but still major fear about being the cause of pain/sadness for somebody else, but otherwise she is usually fine.

    General Personality:
    To most people, Luna seems bright, optimistic and somewhat mischievous. Constantly working to gain the praise and recognition from her guardians early in life showed that the young girl has an undeniable need for affection and acceptance, though because they had some sort of hatred for her, whether it be due to her origins, looks, or personality, Luna never received the love she craved, and often ended up feeling wounded and helpless. Due to this, she always covers up her true feelings under a facade of contentment and/or happiness. She also tends to be able to outwardly adapt to any situation, or at least act like she is calm until she really is. This makes it hard to startle her unless she were very tired.


    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History:
    Luna was born as an illegitimate child of a noble's wife, the result of an affair between her mother and a foreign business partner that came overseas to visit her husband. When he later found out, to say he was furious would have been an understatement, and had Luna's blood father killed. Heartbroken, the minute her mother saw her newborn form, she was repulsed by the fact that she had red eyes, and later by her hair that looked white. She went on and on about how her beloved child was diseased by the blood of a demon, and tried to plea with her husband about how she was tricked into temptation by the devil himself. Luckily for her mother, the family was highly devoted to God, and the minute Luna could fend for herself she was completely ignored by both of her "parents" and forbidden to leave, in an attempt to never let the world know that she existed. This caused the young child to think that she was doing something wrong, ultimately leading her to work day and night in an attempt to try and fix whatever was wrong with her. She did this in the form of studying in the one place where her parents allowed her, the library. During this time she decided that one of the reasons was that she looked unpleasant, so she practiced keeping a small smile on her face no matter what the situation, and managed to master it pretty quickly. If it wasn't for the other servants in the house, she probably would've starved herself unintentionally from the isolation she put herself in.
    When she turned ten, however, her mother broke down, saying that "the demon child" was going to kill her and everybody in the household. In a fit of rage, she barged into the library where said child was asleep, and taking a small metal rod that was heated by the candle, branded Luna. The pain of course woke her up, and in an attempt to defend herself she knocked the hot metal out of her mother's hands and onto a pile of books, which of course being as they were books, caught fire. Fleeing the burning mansion, the young girl quickly learned about life on the streets, and somehow managed to survive for four years, that is until somebody decided to catch her and sell her on the black market, where the circus bought her.​

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND
    General History: It all started in the outskirts of Seoul, South Korea where Miya was born in some crappy neighbourhood where crime ruled everything. All that one could find there were druglords, prostitutes and alchoholics. This was no different for Miya's parents. Her mother was from Canada and her father from Japan. They met during a party. It never went well with their marriage and Miya would soon make notice of this as her father started abusing her at the age of 3. She would be forced to sit in her room in a cage all day and almost starve the only thing she would get was some bread and water. At the age of 5 when her father was drunk he raped her making her traumatized for the rest of her life. When she went to some crappy, old school, at the age of 6, her life would change drastically. At first she didn't really talk or even do anything with her classmates. When she became 7 though, she started hanging out with them coming into contact with drugs and alchohol. Her whole head became fucked up. She started getting into fight regularly. When she became 10 her father wanted to again rape her but this time Miya was prepared for his acts. She had gotten into posession of a handgun and so shot her father right in the head making it an instant kill. She didn't regret and stood next to his body laughing evily and started shooting into his body more and more making the face completely unrecognizeable. Soon her mother found out that it was indeed her husband who was killed and so tried to kill Miya but again she shot her mother and killed her. She decided to become more involved with the people around her and joined a drugsgang. They treated her like their child and so she became a bit more happy but still was crazy. She became to most feared, and scary dealer in the city and she became rich. At the age of 12 she decided to leave the place with all the money she made and decided to become a solo dealer but also a hitman. Her first job came in a few days after she arrived in Busan as she was going to a dock to take a boat. She was ordered to kill a family of 4. Of course these were rich people and she would have no regrets killing them. She made her own c4 explosives and planted them under the car of the family. When they came back from a dinner and were all in the car, Miya pressed the button of the detonator making the car explode killing 4, the mother, father, one child and the driver. One child though, had survived but was soon to die. Miya took a knife and walked towards the car. The first thing she did was taking their wallets and took out all the money and credit cards. Soon the survivor asked "Why would you do this?!". Miya answered with a simple answer: "I can't stand rich and happy families". She then slit the throat of the child and ran off. Once she came back to the hotel she was hiding at she immediatly began drinking. She was insane in her head and decided she wanted to leave to Japan first thiung in the morning. When she woke up she set the room she was in on fire to remove any DNA traces of her. She took a train to Tokyo. When she arrived there she felt great. She felt at home and let out a yell of happiness. All these adults looked at the now 13 year old girl and wanted to rob her. She took 2 handguns from her pocket and yelled with widened eyes "If any of you try to even assault me, I will shoot your head to unrecognizeable. So who of you fuckers can help me with getting some booze?!". The others all cheered for this little girl and took her to a bar. They became close friends in the coming years. She stayed her till she was 18 and was always more happy. But on one day, the police arrived, they had traced Miya for the crimes she commited and wanted to arrest her. She was able to get to a circus called Cirque du Gothique and as she knew she was a very flexible girl she applied to become an acrobatic there not knowing oif the horrors.
