Dale's Adoptable #20

This character is open to adoption under a Permanent Contract With Certain Conditions. You have free reign to choose, edit and modify any of the traits listed here, or even the design of the character itself. Once you claim the character as yours, it's yours, and you are free to put them up for adoption to someone else at any time. If not, you may drop, kill them off, or NPC them as you please. With this said, there are some additional rules to this adoptable's contract, compared to some of my others:

  • This character requires an RPer of a higher writing level than most if they are to use the personality provided. Chaotic Evil characters can be highly disruptive to a game in the wrong hands, so there will be discussion beforehand to see if interested RPers understand what playing this character entails. Experience with prior 'Souls characters is suggested.
  • The character will not be used in a way that violates anyone's personal boundaries or triggers another RPer knowingly or is disruptive to the game or a board. Anyone who abuses this character in play will be blocked and banned from claiming any more adoptables or designs by Dale.

If the character's personality is to be changed from Chaotic Evil before playing, then the above terms will not apply and the adoptable will be under a Relaxed Permanent Contract instead. Adopters, once they have claimed the character, will have the following perks:

  • A reference sheet
  • A resized reference sheet
  • A full-size and resized (avatar-size) mugshot
  • A picture of all the pixels for this character (with a transparent background)
  • The individual pixel icons for this character (with transparent backgrounds)
  • The hex codes for the character's color design

If interested, please contact Dale via PM on their Dogmeat account.

3.  Personality

This character - whether it be pride, immaturity, or insecurity or some other reason - doesn't take failure and mockery well. They are spiteful and vengeful if they feel slighted or insulted, and have no qualms about picking fights or causing serious injury to the offending party. They routinely belittle and bully others, and when faced with the consequences, feel no shame in kissing up to authority figures to get their way or escape justice. They enjoy being destructive and throwing their weight around, and often boast about how they are or might be superior to others. It's very clear they have some sort of bias towards others, whether it be looking down on others for strength or life circumstances or other such things. They are cynical and cold, and believe in the survival of the fittest (or at least, their own continued survival) over all others.

This character, if they had a D&D alignment, would be Chaotic Evil. From most to least importantly, they believe that they:

  • Shall not honor anyone before themselves, because their survival is first, foremost and paramount
  • Shall not aid the weak, since the weak are weak for a reason and it's not the character's problem
  • Shall seek unlimited power over others and unlimited freedom for themselves, but will trade power for freedom every time
  • Shall lie whenever convenient, but isn't stupid enough to lie all the time and will answer to certain truths to maintain a cover
  • Shall break the law whenever convenient, though recognizes the wisdom in manipulating authority and "playing nice"

In regards to their alignment and their behavior, they are, from most to least likely, to:

  • Betray friends if profitable, as friendships are temporary and are useful for getting a leg up
  • Believes rulers are inherently corrupt, as they feel anyone with enough power and influence can make up a law that is listened to
  • Will use wealth to destroy others, as wealth is good for knocking out the competition
  • Use any means necessary to avoid justice, but isn't above working with the law in order to get the best results for themselves
  • Believe luck determines wealth, but isn't above working a secure job for long-term gains

Adopters are free to retcon, completely rewrite, or disregard any of this in favor of their own ideas.

4.  Relationships

This character has been disowned or chased away by too many others to count. Their relationships are usually temporary, born of forced cooperation, desperation, or manipulation. The exception is anyone who can promise a lucrative gain they can't find anywhere else, or who can provide life-changing aid or assistance in the moment. Needless to say, any friendships and relationships are usually for this character's gain, though may gain some sort of strange affection for someone willing to "spoil" them. They get along the best with those who give them lots of freedom and don't care about collateral, so anyone who provides a short-term fling and/or business opportunities are the most likely to interact with or know them. Packs with looser morals and little cares about collateral damage may also catch their interest.

There are a number of open territories you can use as a place of origin for this character, or create backstory and ties to. Good examples for this particular character include Dublin, Liverpool, London, and Portland. The on-board settlement of Amherst may also be a good option.
