I like my cookies. I've been playing Vincent for a long time now, and am confident I could give him justice. I'm also a fan of his so. does that count? :3Character Name: Vincent ValentineReference picture: Here's some fanart. :3Occupation: ex-Turk; freelance fighter; AVALANCHE memberAge: 27 officially, 60+ otherwise.Personality: The first word that would come to mind on looking at Vincent would be dark. Not necessarily in a 'tall, dark, handsome' sense- but enough for people to mistake him to be brooding. They might not entirely be off. He's tall, without question- at six feet, who wouldn't be?. However, his stature is nearly always proper, poised, graceful. He has the aura of an aristocrat if he could be one, which he isn't- but enough to come off as one if he wished to bother imposing himself apon people. He isn't muscular , but he has the build of someone who obviously maintains himself and he does. Surprisingly, his actions are never hurried or seemingly active- yet he seems to be doing as much as he can without letting himself be obvious.Quiet. Collected. Private. All this and every variation of it seems to sum up this enigma of a person- and Vincent likes keeping it that way. He isn't demanding or loud, nor is he outspoken. However, talk to him and you will discover a philosopher and thinker trapped within the shadows. He isn't rude, nor does he attempt to be, though at times he does come off as stand-offish. He likes to mind his own business and will not interfere in people's dealings if he doesn't have to. However, there is a side to him that quietly watches out for people he cares for, though they may never know this because he's not very vocal about how he feels.He's often seen wearing a gauntlet on his left arm which he removes when he's not in battle. His eyes are a dark shade of crimson, an obvious enough color to not be mistaken for brown. His vision, however, is not impaired, nor is he suffering from any sort of unseen disease- he's actually quite healthy and appears to be so. His gaze, however, can often leave one uncomfortable as he tends to look directly at you, exuding a silent confidence that doesn't seem apparent from the way he otherwise seems to keep himself like a shadow.That probably contradicts the fact that Vincent -likes- being around people, if just to observe them and read them for who they are. He does maintain a comfortable distance so he doesn't get too involved in places where he doesn't have to be, believing matters of a person to be their sole business to deal with until and unless his interference -is- needed. (To stop a violent fight, for example.) He is very often on the mark about personalities of others, without really needing to interact with them.. and he isn't judgemental about people.
What's interesting to know is that often there will be times where a maternal side to his actions. This side, which is probably only revealed to those who he feels need the attention to pacify them and to stop them from harming themselves, isn't overbearing or intrusive, but quietly accepting- and in that acception, it is commanding if you're willing to listen to it in that way- often it will be for your own good. Never will there be a time Vincent will suggest anything that's impossible for the person he's advising- if he's saying it, he's saying it because he knows the other person can take it. He likes to be self-sufficient enough to handle things for his own, and if possible - for those that may want him to help them out. That isn't to say he will often think before he speaks- but if he does automatically give a response that appears to be harsh, read through his words again. He never intends offense and doesn't want to be offensive. He simply wishes for you to see the truth. Which is probably why, he tends to listen more than talk.Vincent is by nature, a pacifist, but he doesn't believe in being foolish enough to assume everyone else is. Which brings us to the fact that even his 'fighting'- if he needs to do it, will be mostly defensive instead of offensive- he maintains and exudes an aura of composure, which at times, can be a calming presence to have, and at times scary- he's very adept at hiding how he feels, but will often make sure he knows how you do to treat you accordingly.Other than that, he's pretty much as he appears to be, tall, perhaps good looking though he'd never bother elaborating that part about himself by doing anything to improve his looks- which he feels he doesn't really need to do, and calm. Really the kind of person who you probably wont notice the presence of at first, until and unless he makes himself known. And then you'll wonder how you missed noticing him at all.History: Once a member of Shinra's Elite Turk Forces, Vincent Valentine was one of the chosen bodyguards for the Jenova Project where he guarded the head Professors Hojo, Gast and Lucrecia. While the project went on, he struck up a friendship with one of the leading scientists who would soon be a willing participant in said Project to have a child for their research. Having developed feelings for Lucrecia, Vincent tried to court her, only to discover that her feelings lay with one of her co-workers, Professor Hojo, who she ended up marrying, leaving a heartbroken but accepting Vincent who only hoped for Lucrecia's happiness.However, all was not to be as simple as it seemed. Injected with cells from the alien life force Jenova (mistakenly thought to be a Cetra), Lucrecia was impregnated by Hojo and out of their union was born Sephiroth. However, this had an adverse effect on Lucrecia, ending up putting her in a near-death state after giving birth. Opposed to genetic experimentation and angered by Hojo's detachment to his wife's pain, Vincent confronted him about Lucrecia but in a fit of rage, Hojo shot Vincent down and after this, no one ever heard from the Turk again. Hojo on the other hand, used Vincent's body as a guinea pig for dangerous biogenetic experiments, altering his lifespan and aging to virtual immortality. All this while, he remained alive, being unable to die, and suffered the effects of Hojo's cruelty, eventually being allowed to 'sleep' when all said experiments were completed. What was done to Vincent gave him an extended lifespan, but with it came the curse of transforming into four different beasts, each of which are now a part of Vincent's genetic makeup- and was left in the Shinra mansion where the nightmares began.
Guilt-ridden and tormented by his feelings for being unable to save Lucrecia and Sephiroth, Vincent slept in the basement of Shinra mansion for over twenty years, refusing to leave so as to 'sleep away his sin' even when he was found by the Turks. However, five years after the disappearance of Sephiroth, Vincent was discovered by an ex-SOLDIER named Cloud who told him about Sephiroth and because of discovering the conditions of his birth, Sephiroth had gone mad, thereby falling under the influence of Jenova, who wished to end all life on the Planet. The world they were in was now in danger . Realising that there may still be a chance to save the ones he'd failed to before, and hoping to redeem his sin by finding Hojo and finishing him off, Vincent abandoned all regret and joined Cloud to face his nemesis. Eventually he succeeded in killing Hojo and facing off Sephiroth, stopping him before he destroyed the planet- and now, Vincent travels alone, learning the backlash of the effects of Sephiroth's and Jenova's apparent 'deaths' and is separated from his companions but willing to help when called apon.Sample roleplay: (From a game where he's warning Rufus of Sephiroth's return, hope it's alright)After the inevitable conversation that had certainly caused more suspicion and corruption of thought than restoration, Vincent had excused himself from the silver-haired General. The result of their conversation borne in his thoughts as his own impending guilt; he had certainly been doing what had been right, had he not? He made his travel to the city that the young president had mentioned.Sephiroth may have wanted to destroy Shinra. Vincent may have believed they deserved it.But the man that had caused that pain was long gone and in his place was this boy-- this man. And the realization hit him before anything else; he couldn't let anything happen to him. It was his cross to bear, for what would go on in Sephiroth's mind now and he knew he would have to bear responsibility for it.But, no matter. No matter at all..He had to warn him.Heads turned to glance at the strangely dressed figure who was making his way through the crowds with a calm air of elegance and composure, the red cape and dark clothing with the flowing dark hair making him a little more than noticeable, but he cared nothing of it.His face, retaining the surprising freshness of his youth gave no answer to anything, and as he had checked ahead of time about where he was to meet the young President, he made sure to check the location and after one or two confirmations, found himself there.And he paused; his eyes settling on the figure at a lone table, standing out to him as about as much as he probably was to the others. He had his father's outstanding features from his youth, Vincent had to admit-- but none of the strong ones that made his man so domineering. If anything, it was the opposite on Rufus Shinra; there was cunning on that face.Fitting, he supposed, as he walked silently towards the other, but maintaining a short distance away even from the seat opposite where Rufus sat."Rufus Shinra." he greeted then, not wishing to draw this out more than necessary. He decided not to offer anymore explanation as to his short delay and why he was sidetracked.That could come later; should his presence not have scared Rufus off within the next few minutes.
I left out Lucrecia's hand in making Vincent what he is in the history bit to avoid spoilers.... just so you know. :D
