'Black Sheep


 

GENERAL INFORMATION
Full Name: Alma Nier
Nicknames: Black Sheep, Gimme some more.
Date of Birth (Age): Alma escaped captivity at age 11, so that is his current default, though he will age up to at least his late teens and eventually into his early twenties.
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Bisexual
CHARACTERISTIC INFORMATION
Positive Traits: Alma is normally a friendly, playful and free-spirited person. Often found snacking, he is not averse to sharing his snacks with those he likes, he also might not steal your wallet, pocket change, or pocket snacks if he likes you. Alma is also protective of those who have earned his trust, albeit a clearly disturbed and psychotic brand of protectiveness.
Negative Traits: Alma is prone to picking people's pockets, singing songs of death in french, snacking at inappropriate times, taking naps during the work day, distracting Ilaria when she is trying to work, and assaulting those whom rub him the wrong way.
Quirky Traits: Alma due to having been desensitized tends to partake in a casual act of self harm through the sub-culture art that is known as Body Stitching. Alma tends to pick people's pockets when hugging them, and will continue this habit as a way of greeting, not for money, but because he wants any snacks they might have. Alma can often be found snacking on sweets from simple candy to pastries, cakes, and other desserts. Alma in spite of the laws in place, and his own age, carries around on his person a collection of flat-edged switchblades that he can be found playing with when bored.
Mental Disorders: ADHD, Paranoia, Trust Issues, Desensitization towards Pain, Bipolar Disorder, and a tendency to enact the violent impulses engrained into his being when he is insulted, though his actions are more brutal when he enacts such impulses in defense of one he cares about.
Common Habits: Singing songs of death in french, body stitching, snacking at inappropriate times, taking naps through the day, wandering around to "play" (snoop around crime scenes without getting scolded by Mama), or to go to the zoo to draw animal's.
ATTRIBUTE INFORMATION
Strengths: Alma in spite of his messed up mentality actually is capable of caring about others, once he cares about someone, he will risk his life to protect them by any means necessary. Alma is actually a nice person once you look past his screwed up past.
Weaknesses: Alma has been desensitzed to such an extent his moral compass appears to be broken, his body is unable to process pain, thus he is acts with reckless abandon. Alma has a habit of assaulting people who insult him, or disrespect Ilaria and Sanji.
Fears: Returning to life as a test subject, people assuming he is a satan spawn because of how strange he behaves. Having to leave the safety offered by Laguna Nera and Ilaria Marino.
Talents: Alma displays exceptional skill when it comes to handling bladed weapons, namely switchblades and scythes. Alma is skilled at acrobatics in and out of combative situations. Alma is a habitual pick-pocket as shown in his first few minutes of interaction with Ilaria Marino.
Hobbies: Alma has an avid interest in the body modification sub-culture of body stitching, as well as having an interest in the occult. Alma's dream is to one day become a Detective who is able to use his position to pay back the debt he feels he owes Ilaria Marino & Sanji Vice, so it should come as no surprise he likes to enact the role of Detective whenever he hears about a crime scene. Sneaking into crime scenes to increase his fledgling skills as an Investigator.
SUPERNATURAL INFORMATION
Is your character aligned to the supernatural?: This is sort of a grey area regarding Alma, as his backstory has both supernatural and non-supernatural elements weaved into it. That having been said, I would lean more towards Alma not being supernaturally aligned given the sort of abilities he does possess.
Does your character possess supernatural abilities?: Alma's brand of special abilities focus entirely on boosting his physical capabilities; strength, speed, endurance/durability (due to desensitization), and reflexes, in order to make him more proficient towards the use of his knives and scythe.
Would you be willing to negotiate should they be deemed overpowered for this setting?: Yes, I certainly would be willing to negotiate any necessary character modification to fit Alma into the setting.
Please explain your character's abilities: I mentioned this above, though such abilities are less supernatural and more possible due to the instincts he has developed thanks to his captivity.
Please explain the drawbacks to your character's abilities: The drawbacks to Alma's abilities are that while he can increase these aspects about himself, he is still too young to be able to utilize them to their true extent. Additionally, augmenting his capabilities takes a heavy toll upon Alma's body that eats away at him mentally and physically.
EXTRA INFORMATION
If hired by Laguna Nera what positions would you be interested in?: Given Alma's age he would be unable to handle alcohol at this time, as such, I believe that his being a server and a bus boy would be the best call, for the time being.
If accepted into the Marino Famiglia what type of roles would interest you?: Given the bond I have already begun to forge with Ilaria, I would like for Alma to be her adopted son. As for famigilial role, he could easily handle the role of an Enforcer, or rather a Secret Weapon.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Please provide a modest summary of your character's history.
The child known as Alma was abandoned at birth for unknown reasons, quickly taken off the streets by a rouge coven, he was raised alongside other children as a test subject. Tortured and mutilated daily regardless of his performance as a human lab rat, Alma has become desensitized to the sensation of pain. Years of torture and conditioning went by with no end in sight, ultimately claiming Alma's moral compass as a victim. Hope was lost, until the night of the final test in the experiment. Alma at age eleven killed the rest of the test subjects in cold blood, even the young woman who had become like an elder sister to him, as well as most of the witches whom had made his life a literal living hell.
Alma now at age eleven, has escaped from the underground complex into the streets of New York amidst a terrible blizzard. Alma moved about in search of warmth and an easy mark off of which he could steal money to get by, he picked the wrong mark. Alma chose to pick the pocket of one, Ilaria Marino, a mistake on his part. Alma was caught with ease due to know his target was, reluctantly returning the stolen money as his pursuers arrived to retrieve him. Protected by Ilaria, Alma was able to make a clean escape, showing up at the doors of Leguna Nera on a Friday night with little life energy left in his physically and mentally exhausted body.
WRITING SAMPLE
Two sets of feet beat against a walkway of gray brick and mortar. The cold, rustic hues of the floor, walls, and ceiling were quite befitting of a such a morbid, sinister locale. Feminine feet adorned by black, high-heel stilettos sent loud, booming echoes crawling across the dimly-lit corridor, drowning out the pitter-patter of scuffed bare feet. Slow burn candles spaced out every few yards along the corridors walls brought odd, ghastly apparitions to life within the duos shadows. Silver chains clinked, grinding together, the vile rattle signaled an irrefutable difference in the worth of their existences.
"Don't you dare disgrace me, Alma~", sang the delightedly cruel tones of a middle-aged woman. Dressed in a red and black pin-stripe business suit, she clutched her possessions lead in her hand, tugging him, dragging him crueally along the corridors length toward an impending light. The noise of hundreds, possibly thousands of voices cheering could now be heard clearly, stirring up something unnatural.
"Oui m'dame! I'll make them sing bloody murder!", The boy responded with an odd glee, joy matched only by the creepy cheshire grin he wore. His wicked sinful smile never faltered, not even when the woman kicked him repeatedly. She hollowed loudly, grotesque plans flowed from her mouth with clear malicious intent as she spit upon the auburn haired child who stood there letting himself be knocked about. The boy showed no signs he was in pain, no signs he intended to retaliate.

EXTRA INFORMATION
If hired by Laguna Nera what positions would you be interested in? Chef (And dare I say, lover)
If accepted into the Marino Famiglia what type of roles would interest you? “”

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
((DISCLAIMER: I am writing Sanji in an AU plot. Please do not inform me of how right or wrong I am in my portrayal. To be different than the canon is the point.))

The Vinsmoke Family is a prominent mafia group based in Seattle. When he was young, his father and siblings did many horrible things to him and the boy’s only solace was the loving embrace of his mother. When she died, he was locked up and mistreated until he was able to escape (with some help) He fled to Los Angeles with a man who raised him to adulthood, teaching him how to cook and defend himself. Some time has passed now, lingering danger threatening to spill onto his adopted father’s plate. He has left to gain a new life in NYC and to protect the people he cares about.

WRITING SAMPLE
The world was a cruel place. This was not news to Sanji. And so it was no surprise when he’d caught wind of a familiar name floating around his ‘hometown.’ He’d cursed up a storm the moment he’d had a chance to sit and think about it. They were in town and rumor had it they were looking for ‘an old friend.’ He had no choice really. It might’ve made him a coward, but at least the old man and his staff would be safe.

He had booked the first flight out of L.A. he could find. He supposed it wasn’t disappointing that the first place the internet suggested was New York City. Another big city… Who knew? Maybe it’d feel like home. He knew that nothing would feel like L.A. Like a hot summer night spent cooking in the kitchen of a water-bound restaurant, but at least he was familiar with tall buildings, bustling streets and smog. Homey enough, he told himself.

He left in the middle of the night, intending not to say a word, but he was caught off guard by a man in the doorway.  As always, Zeff had him figured out. He could recall the ache of seeing him there, looking like a ghost in the moonlight. The look of betrayal and sadness searing him to the soul. ‘Don’t catch a cold, Sanji.’ The words had broken him. The first time he’d cried in almost a decade. He’d poured his heart out to the man, swearing he’d make it up to him some day. That he’d succeed. Find a place to settle down and become a better chef than he was. And that was exactly what he planned to do.

PROMPT: ((I know this doesn’t match the canon I’ve already built with Matrona Nera, but I tried to look at it from the perspective of a new-ish applicant.)) Her. A beauty with black satin curls and brilliant chocolate eyes. He’d seen her a time or two before and she always caused his stomach to flip. It wasn’t uncommon for women to induce a wild reaction within Sanji, but this one was different. He couldn’t call it love at first sight, but he might’ve if someone asked. She wasn’t really the only reason he ever came, though she was his primary one.

This place had a certain peace to it. It reminded him of the Baratie. The way the people interacted with one another. The staff treated each other with a level of closeness that trickled into their patrons. A safe haven. Homey. It would seem he’d found the place. He stood from his place at the bar, leaving the bartender a healthy tip before leaving. He’d return. His purpose? To get a job.
