First attempt at one of these so rather brief, however if I can think of anything or anyone has any suggestions I will certainly change/add to it. I especially intend to expand his bio/history. Hope it's satisfactory.
Character Profiles / Emmanuel Insilio
« Last post by Constantine Hood on April 18, 2019, 06:37:59 PM »
Name and Occupation
- Taken Name: Emmanuel Insilio
- Pronunciation of the Name: E-man-you-well In-silly-o
- Name Etymology: Emmanuel means 'God with us' in Hebrew, accentuating his devotion to the Church and the Faceless Ones. Insilio is Latin for leap/bound, hearkening to his species aptitude for agility and eccentric acrobatics.
- Given Name: Charles Smith. Insilio did not only take a name to protect himself but to represent his discarding of his heritage and highlight his utter obedience to the Faceless Ones.
- Pronunciation of the Name: Char-allz Smyth
- Character Job: Henchman for various Churches of the Faceless in North America.
- Titles: The Pestilence of Yukon

Character Mentality
- Character Personality: Insilio is fuelled by a revanchist desire to return the Faceless Ones to Earth and restore the glory of the Church. He has few quarrels with killing or other malicious activities as long as they align with his goal or help him acquire the means required to achieve it. He prefers to lurk in the background, selecting when to act and when to remain hidden. He can become easily irritated which can lead him to act rashly (he certainly doesn't like his Gods being insulted!), which is a key weakness that could be exploited. He views prayer (one form of which he engages in is self-punishment) as incredibly important and his warped conscious has categorised hunting mortals as a form of it - he views it as purifying the Earth prior to his Gods glorious return.
- Character Likes: The Faceless Ones and his fellow believers. Hunting mortals through the forests of Canada, possibly his favourite pastime besides Chess...
- Character Dislikes: Sinners, blasphemers, traitors and the Sanctuaries. Oh and enclosed spaces, obviously.
- Mental Traits: Taciturn and cunning.

Species and Allegiance
- Species: Unknown, the same as Springheeled Jack.
- Ethnicity: N/A
- Nationality: Technically Canadian - although from an English family.
- Alignment: Chaotic Evil.
- Allegiance: The Diablerie and the Church of the Faceless.
- Reasoning: Adopted by a member of the Church of the Faceless when young, thus has been indoctrinated in their beliefs and ways.

- Allies: The Diablerie.
- Enemies: Sanctuary Operatives and sinners.
- Family: None - possibly a distant and unknown relative of Springheeled Jack.
- Friends: Other members of the Church.
- Significant Other: None - a spouse is a distraction from worship!

Character Age and Gender
- True Age: 217
- Appearance Age: 37
- Character Birthday: 09/09/1801
- Gender: Male

Character Appearance
- Skin Colour: Pale white.
- Height: around 7ft.
- Weight: 99kg.
- Hair Description: Shoulder-length black hair that he keeps presentable.
- Eye Description: Black and beady, comparable to a vultures.
- Facial Details: Long, hooked nose. Small scares are present on the side of his face, a result of his undertaking of penance. Mouth appears to be in a permanent grimace - a result of his disgust for lower life forms.
- Physical Appearance: Elongated limbs and long fingers with sharp nails. Tall and broad shouldered. Deep scars envelope his back from extensive flagellation, results of his self-punishment that he has unsurprisingly partaken in due to being a member of the Church of the Faceless. When he is not in the open he walks with a hunch due to his size. Emmanuel likes to at least try to be presentable, so stays clean and healthy looking (unlike Springheeled Jack).
- Attire: Prefers to dress formally, usually wears a black armoured trench coat and beneath a crimson waistcoat over a shirt, with black tailored trousers to match. When at the Church, he will switch to standard and unremarkable robes which draw attention to his insignificance compared to the glory of the Faceless Ones.

Speech and Habits
- Character Voice: Deep and mournful, speaks in received pronunciation (posh English) with a slight Canadian accent. 
- Speech Traits: Sometimes ceases mid-speech altogether for no apparent reason, but really he is just thinking about the glory of his Gods.
- Languages: English and some French.
- Habits: Prayer and Penance - as should all followers of the Faceless Ones. Engaging in hunting mortals, especially through the wilderness.
- Mannerisms: Emmanuel moves with unnerving grace no matter the situation, in combat he will gladly display his prowess with a sword whilst performing a variety of unnecessary, but still impressive, feats. 

Weapons, Equipment and Artifacts
- Large Equipment: N/A
- Small Equipment: A device that inflicts a magnitude of agony - both for his enemies and some spontaneous penance.
- Weaponry: A small dagger in his boot. Carries a Rapier in a sheath on his back engraved with ancient symbols that make it incredibly durable which he 'liberated' from an ominous sorcerers' tomb.
- Ammunition: Firearms aren't exactly Emmanuel's forte.
- Pocket Items: His mentor and adopted father's pocket watch which he has significant sentimental value attached to.
- Magical Equipment/Artifacts: He discovered his Rapier in an underground tomb in Alaska in 1858. Speculation has led him to believe that it belonged to a dark sorcerer who was slain in the war.

Magical and Physical Abilities
- Physical Abilities: Considerable stamina and average strength - relies more on speed, manoeuvrability and skill during combat.
- Strengths: Open spaces that allow him significant room to manoeuvre and exploit his agility. Speed and his acrobatic skill. Swordfighting.
- Weaknesses: Closed/tight spaces put him at a substantial disadvantage. Gunfights.
- Training: Relatively high pain tolerance due to his undertaking of penance as a member of the Church. He received combat training from a Diablerie liaison as a child, who owed a favour to his adopted father. His adopted father trained him in the art of sword fighting, as he had served alongside Burgundy Dalrymple during the war, and as a result Emmanuel is quite skilled in this form of combat which greatly complements his acrobatic skills. Without his trusty rapier, he is still a dangerous foe and can still easily outmanoeuvre an armed opponent due to his natural ability, however he is unlikely to engage an enemy without it unless he is confident of a victory - or if he has been provoked into doing so.

Magical Afflictions
- Magical Disease or Affliction: His species?
- Cause of Infliction: Since birth.
- Benefits: Extreme agility, balance and is able to propel himself notably further off the ground than any human.
- Downsides: Slightly animistic features lead to people recoiling in horror when they see him which makes it difficult to be present in public places - although the terrified look on mortals' faces does amuse him when he approaches them in order to finish a hunt.
- Fitting In: Wears a long trench coat and rarely enters public places, preferring to remain in the Church, the wilderness or the shadows.

Goals, Motivation and History
- Major Goal: Restore the rule of the Faceless Ones to this Earth, no matter the cost.
- Minor Goals: Join the Diablerie to show his devotion and kill sinners and blasphemers whenever possible.
- Motivation: Indoctrinated believer, believes that it is his duty and not for him to question the Faceless Ones inherent right to rule the Earth. Dreams of living in a world devoid of mortals and non-believers, so that he no longer has to keep a low profile. He believes that this is what the Faceless Ones will do.
- Bio: Vincent Insilio knows very little of his heritage, except that his parents migrated from London to Northern Canada prior to his birth. Soon after his birth he was abandoned and taken in by a member of the Church, who raised him in the wilderness of Northern Canada. He was extensively taught the beliefs and rituals of the Church and became a devout believer. Insilio came to love the relative peacefulness and tranquillity of the wilderness, which was pierced only by the screams of the mortals he hunted, and he thrived there, bounding between the trees with inhuman elegance.

As he reached adulthood, he began to traverse the continent, coming into contact with everything from Cartels to Sanctuaries. Eventually his travels led him to Alaska, where he discovered an isolated tomb in the wilderness. Naturally, he was curious, and investigated this ominous discovery. Upon entry of the tomb, he immediately sensed an underlying power. The symbol of his church and associated engravings decorated the walls, leading him to believe that this was the tomb of a fellow believer. Emmanuel was rather disturbed that he had entered so disrespectfully, but also curious... Upon further investigation he came across an ornate Rapier, beautifully embellished with symbols. He praised his Gods for it, believing it to be a gift, and swore to avenge whoever the fallen believer was, should ever the opportunity arise.
