12/03/2009Name: Andrew WilliamsAge:
Andrew dresses rather light in order to keep himself swiftly mobile at all times. He’s gifted with a rather handsome appearance, and an attractive body to go with it. He has dark, deep blue eyes, light brown hair and keeps himself clean shaven.
Jamie BamberAttributes and Skills:
Andrew uses his looks to the best of his ability, but rarely does he have use of it when it comes to his job. He is a master at hand to hand combat, but his true skills come from that of his sword and throwing knives he keeps equipped. He is swift, stealthy, extremely confident, and strong.Personality:
Andrew is beyond selfish, and if you’re not a woman he has his eye on than good luck trying to catch his attention. He is extremely quiet and anti-sociable, the type of person to speak only when having something meaningful (usually on his behalf) to say. He basically lives in his head, so to speak. You might often see his eyes glaze over, as his mind often drifts off to someplace else. If he does have his eye on you, (sexually speaking), that is not to say he would turn into a romantic blabber mouth, as his appearance requires little motivation on his behalf (he usually settles for Companions anyway). His focus is never on making friends, but on only on his work, his money, and sex. Under the Surface:
Andrew has never quite felt the fortunate pleasures of being able to trust someone, or having someone trust him. Deep down beneath that black lump in his chest he calls a heart is simply all those emotions and experiences he has never had just waiting to bust through that thick head of his. The reason he is the way he is is simply becuase he has never learned, or been treated any other way than how he acts or treats others in return. In a way, he is so ignorant to the point of a child would almost be.History:
At 3, Andrew was born into a world of death. His memory fails to comprehend most of what happened, but he does know how he became the man he is today. Andrew was brought into an agency where people lived for the sake of money and the need to survive. His new family (if that’s what you want to call them), were not many. They disguised themselves as ordinary traders, flying across the Verse’ pretending to be so in attempt to hide who they really were. They raised Andrew as a killer, teaching him to handle weaponry, and how to fight. He grew up in a series of beatings and brutality, teaching him to shut off his emotions, to become a human robot that would obey their every order. They had others like him, of course, who were trained the same way he was. They were brought up and eventually became assassins, killing in exchange for wealth for their “masters.”
However, Andrew was not the only one who kept distant memories of who he was and where he once truly belonged. He could remember having a family as a young child, so young it was almost painful to try and remember. He soon became aware of the fact that he could make his own choices, that despite what they said he had the right to freedom.
Andrew broke away from their grasp, escaping into his own life. He was 15 when he finally got away, when he finally came to his senses. Yet after being held so long against what he eventually realized was his free will, it dawned on him just how ignorant he was. He was only taught to kill rather than be killed. To survive and how to fight. To find employers who searched for people that matched Andrews job description. And so Andrew continued to live on doing the only thing he knew how to do. He became his own assassin, his own man. He was like an alien to society at first, but eventually he grew into it, becoming more and more aware of whom the right people were to speak to. He learned there were extreme pleasures of life, like bars and booze and woman, and having his own wealth to spend. All the knowledge he soon came to learn slowly began to erase the memory of his past. His ordinary family forgotten, his newer one merely a dim light in the back of his mind.
But the agency he was once a part of, one that had a name he had long dismissed from his mind, continues to search for him to this very day. They can not find him however, as they trained Andrew well. He leaves no trail behind him, wherever he go’s… and rarely any survivors.Secret History:
Andrew was stolen from his real family as a child to be either sold or trained for the agencies own selfish needs. He had a mother, a father, and two siblings whom he will NEVER be reunited with ever again. To them, he is dead, and to Andrew… it was as if they never existed.Strengths:
Andrew is a master in hand to hand combat, and his choice of weapon is a long, steel sword. Aside from which, he is equipped with six throwing knives and a simple handgun he rarely uses… With these simple objects, Andrew is a powerful enemy. He is stealthy, fast and his physical appearance matches his strength. He can pilot a ship, he can fight to the death, and he is somewhat handy with mechanics…
NOTE: These are in fact the most important part of the character! Weaknesses:
Andrew may be strong, fast and has fists like iron. He may be gifted with a blade and have advantages when it comes to his looks, but his flaws overlay the strengths by far. When it comes to long ranged combat, Andrew may not be useless, but he is weak in that department. His vision is slightly off, and aiming is definitely not his strong suit. He hates guns, HATES them!
He is distracted easily, and a woman can easily seduce him. He is a childish teenager in that way. A beautiful woman can simply throw him off guard. He is not always as focussed as he would like to think he is.
Andrew is simply put- a tortured, disturbed soul. He has spent years putting an end to life, whether it be men, woman, children, or even entire families at once. Throughout years of his having the status of an assassin, he has not once felt remorse. That is, however, until recently. A pain inside him continues to grow, never lighting up. Andrew continues to feel ignorant of what it is, despite how obvious it may seem to anyone else. He strongly disregards the truth. He grows angry and frustrated at the site at a happy couple or family, at friends partying together. The nightmares he has are getting worse day by day. The site of woman and children screaming haunts his mind, followed by the site of their cold, lifeless bodies.
These visions of past hits are beginning to cause him so much pain that for once in his life… or as long as he can remember, he can feel fear.
Deep Dark Self: Andrew is disgusted with himself, although he has not quite realized it yet. Despite all the horrible things he has done, Andrew can not come to terms with the fact that he is human and he does in fact have the feelings that go with being human. He is a tortured sole, and can not seem to understand why lately he has this incredible, non-stop agony inside of him. Deep down, he is filled with self-hatred, guilt, regret, loneliness and fear.
