Rutilus Fidael, goes by "Ruti".Species: Red Fox KitAge:
Staffer's Son, NOT a student proper of MA.Quotes:
"Wow! How does THIS work?"
"'Tis very simple, Rokfriez!" (to his pet mini-whip)
"No ribbons! I don't wanna look like a girl!"
"That's how Jana Bovine did it!" (Note: Jana Bovine is the name of a fictional cow spy, more later)How much experience do you have with role-playing? How much time have you spent on MUSHs/MUXs/etc.? Little actual experience, have been exposed a little to it, though.
What is your character's personality? Very outgoing, mischievious, and curious. Ruti has a lot of energy and imagination, and likes to ask a lot of questions and find a lot of answers. He is only occasionally prone to pranks, and limits his targets to those he knows personally. He has a slight tendency to speak before thinking as well.What things does he like?
He is obsessed with spies and detectives and highly interested in the related areas of technology and technomagery. He has also has been known to take pictures and wear disguises as a part of his playing out the conjurings of his mind. On a minor but potentially important note, he likes the taste and smell of fruit. He is also fond of animals in general, with any discovered creature being a potential pet (in his mind).Dislike?
The two main things Ruti dislikes is boredom and romancy stuff. This dislike of boredom makes some classes problematic, especially classes like grammar and math (although he does OK in them). His dislike of romance colors how he deals with females, although he doesn't mind them unless they start with things he considers to be "girly".What are the strong points of your character?
Ruti has a strong imagination, good intelligence, and owing to his youth and fox genes is highly agile and stealthy. (He has no special abilities, he's just very quiet when he wants to be.) (Note here: His outgoing personality is the counterbalance to his stealth. He doesn't sneak unless he has a reason to want to do so.)
He has a strong fascination with history and some sciences, and has some ability to work with animals.Weak points?
Ruti lacks the maturity of an adult Cyantian, and a combination of impetuousness and impatience often land him in trouble. He is also naive about dangers and the motives of others, since he lacks in actual experience. He is lacking in physical strength.
He has recently started to think more like an adult, but isn't quite there yet.Name one thing your character would never do and why.
Ruti would never pass up an adventure or mystery. His curiousity will not allow it. He also will not allow himself to be kissed or cuddled if he can help it. Also, Ruti will not strike out at an adult, due to motherly conditioning.How does he interact with others?
Ruti likes to talk with anyone with common interests, which includes any adults in the area. He will ask questions of them, answer questions they may ask him. He may ask what others are up to even if they have few common interests, and may add his own point of view of things at times, making reference of the spy/detective fiction he likes so much.
He would tend to hang around engineering and technomage students in order to learn what he can early on, and such students may offer demonstrations of their achievements and small knick-knacks, including minor prankish things which are discouraged on the campus. It depends on the individual in question.
Some of the more mischievious students may use Ruti for some of their plots, giving him small spy-like assignments as a part of a larger plot. In fact, such favors may be the cost for acquiring the various knick-knacks, or they may charge a small fee for them.
He has the unfortunate habit of snooping into other's things, although being an honest sort, he will not steal anything belonging to someone else, but will place it back in its place after his curiosity is satisfied.
Some other notes: He speaks Khaasi in the home, but Cyanzian (Latin) outside of the home. Khaasi tends to be used by his mother to chastise him. He will not strike back at an adult, since he has been conditioned to be submissive by his mother. He is also showing signs that he recognizes roleplay as being play. Also, he has started to think of others as well.What are their abilities, hobbies, things they're good at?
Ruti can move about quietly, and has some minor ability at photography and crafting (including props and disguises). He also takes very good care of his mini-whip, Rokfriez (named after the assistant of the highly logical Ad'Iglen Visindi) whom he managed to tame from birth after being given him as a pet by his father. Rokfriez is a somewhat lazy pet most of the time.Tools of the trade (including weapons)
Ruti possesss the following items. A simple multitool without a sharp blade, a good dataplate which he uses for school and for play, a good digicorder, a small listening device and remote earpiece, perhaps a fairly cheap motion detection device, a secret cache of prankish things including very crude fur-dye devices received from unknown sources (technomage and engineering students being the primary suspects), and any number of props and pieces of disguises. Many of the costume pieces/props are commercial items.
He has a small whistle he uses to call his mini-whip to him.
He always wears a bracelet which has the equivalent of a GPS transceiver in it. It is used by the parents to track Ruti down when needed, and usually sits idle otherwise. Ruti does not suspect anything about it. The device is self-sustaining energy-wise, and would have enough "features" (digital encoder, etc) that it is a normal part of Ruti's attire by his own choice. The bracelet bears the likeness of Jana Bovine on it.Give an example description of your character.
Ruti Fidael is a short fox kit, about 3'11", with red
fur with white belly undertones in a traditional pattern and a short spiky black cropping of hair on top (Think Yahiko of Kenshin)
. All four paws, as well as the tips of his ears and tail, are black as well. He has brown eyes. I'm going to assume for now there is no uniform for his school.Why is it essential to your character to be here in the Mars Academy?
He is here because his father works as a Lab Technician, and lives on campus. His mother has no official position but has been known to help organize events on campus and in the community.What are their qualifications?
The father, Taisha Fidael, has a passing knowledge of the sciences, as well as the technical skills needed to provide support in keeping the lab facilities up to date and running well. His work ethic and attention to detail is impeccable. Taisha has been known to substitute for science professors on rare occasion, especially for days with heavy lab work.What traits do they have that are useful to the future colony?
The father is intelligent, and a hard and honest worker. His attention to detail and safety are above reproach. The mother is a natural organizer, and very content to remain humbly behind the scenes while making sure local events run smoothly. Ruti brings to Mars Academy a child-like enthuiasm and great potential in his quest to become a technomage sometime down the road.What are their goals in being here?
Ruti's goal is to find the next adventure, although he does wish to attend Mars Academy as a technomage student one day, and has interest in the field of covert ops. He dreams of one day figuring out how to shift physical appearance at will using technomagery.
At some point during his mother's pregnancy, a desire to be a great big brother has manifested itself. What is your characters nature and thoughts on others of his/her species?
Ruti may have some slight prejudice against Fox due to a general Wolf dislike of traditional Fox attitudes. This is, however, more than offset by Ruti's general willingness to trust others, and the fact that many of the Fox he has known have been of the decent sort, rather than the haughty Fox often associated with the Fox states. (He was raised in Wolf-controlled territory after all.)What is his or her view on other species?
Ruti has only ever known life within Wolf territory, and has the normal prejudices of a typical citizen under the Akaelaes and the Council. He is still getting used to humans, but has no large bias for or against any other race, although some of the more elite and powerful classes earn his awe and respect for their abilities. (Notable are the Sirac, the species of the fictional spy "Umbra Mens")Please answer the following in a couple paragraphs: What is your character's history? Who is or was your characters family? What were the important events of your characters past? What kind of life did they have before they arrived at the academy?
Ruti's family consists of his father Taisha Fidael, an orange Fox, and his mother Noiya K'lim Fidael, a blue Fox. He had a red fox godfather, as per Fox tradition, but the godfather died during the plague which hit about a year after they came to Wolf lands.
The father, a orange fox scientist known to have dissenting views on many things in the Fox government, fled when his blue-furred wife became pregnant, for fear of what might happen to his son on his account. Once in Wolf territory, he worked temp jobs for a brief period of time, until the quality of his work landed him a good job with Avistary Academy as a lab technician. He was chosen as one of the staff to move to Mars for a new project 2 years ago and his family moved with him.(Family historical note: A tragedy had happened to the kit one of Taisha's friends with similar views about a rot or so before his wife's pregnancy, and it was generally known it was retaliation for expression of views counter to the interests of the ruling class. Seeing as the circumstances are now generally good, and no reason exists to think upon or speak of it, the details will remain unknown. The key reason for this is that it was the final piece of the picture on why a normally content Fox who favors the low risk action would have moved to a strange land rather than staying where he was.)
Ruti has had things fairly easy since Avistary Academy, and never really known adversity. He's always been well off, although the family isn't all that wealthy.
It's been established that Ishmael
is one of the students Ruti has befriended, and that he loves to ask him questions about technomagery. Any further nature of their relationship remains uncertain until it is worked out by Josh and myself. Ruti eagerly awaits the birth of his siblings.
