Shingeki no Kyojin - Erwin Smith
A tall, physically built man with pale skin and ice blue eyes. Charles generally wears pure white when in uniform. His hallowed outfit reflects his profession, a doctor's coat with the embellishments of Crux Fidelis's emblems.
Bellicosa: Somnio Crucis: Somnio Crucis is a Bellicosa in the shape of a giant cross, which is stored as a miniature cross worn on the neck of Charles Drake. At over seven feet tall and four feet in span, the cross's weight is not meant to be wielded by the owner's strength, but rather by their mental connection.
Somnio Crucis is controlled by the user's mind, its speed and its relative mass also controlled by the user. It can be used as a vehicle by having the user hold onto it and flying to different areas, or it can be used as a weapon, by flying directly at opponents as a blunt force instrument. Charles can control its mass and the trajectory of speed in which it flies, which means that the swing of its strikes can be absolutely devastating upon impact.
Sillage: Suffering Consumption: A rather unorthodox ability that manifested itself within Charles at an early age, Charles' sillage ability allows him to heal others by consuming their biological and emotional suffering. While unorthodox, Charles's ability literally consumes the causal link between a person's suffering and the effects that it has on the body. This allows him to heal a person by taking in their physical ailment. Charles' main form of sustenance is also derived from it, forcing his destiny to be forever drawn to the tragic. Charles heals others by simply touching their bodies, and the injury or pain fades out of existence.
Despite its seemingly miraculous healing, there are significant limitations, firstly, Charles cannot consume life-threatening injuries. Any other injuries however will immediately heal upon his consumption. Significant injuries, such as severed limbs, take extensive time to heal, and can only be recovered outside of any life-threatening situation.
Secondly, if the injury is based on a pre-existing supernatural condition, such as a curse, Charles cannot consume such a curse. He can however, consume the momentary suffering in which the curse gives, thus alleviating the pain from the individual or the symptoms of fatigue that may be caused by such a curse.
Third, subjective pain and suffering, such as those derived from mental stress or heartbreak, cannot be healed, merely numbed. Charles is able to consume the negative emotions felt by that particular individual, numbing them to the pain of that situation. The effect of which is similar to consuming a dose of morphine, however, just as it is like morphine, it eventually fades over time.
Charles has always been a man of significant principle. He sets clear dividing lines been what is acceptable and what isn't, and he adheres to those principles strongly. Born with a tireless motor, Charles' innate desire to be productive has given him a great deal in life, but it is strongly motivated by the need to be wanted by others.
Charles is soft-spoken as an individual, but he knows when to be firm. He believes himself to be capable enough to make a strong difference in the world, and he validates it by actively seeking out the marginalized and disenfranchized to justify his own signfiicance. But the darker side of this as well is that Charles secretly wishes for there to be something that he resolves.
Charles has few loved ones in his life that truly accept him for who he is, so he is grateful for the presence and attachment of his wife, Rhiannon, who has so far been the light in an otherwise very dim world. Her constant desire to be with him is an affirmation and validation of his existence, and he holds her in the highest of regards as a result.
Charles Drake is a member of the Hallowed for Crux Fidelis, and a member of the Crux Fidelis medical staff. A devoted healer and a focused worker, Charles' sillage has always been one of the guiding principles for his line of occupation. Charles was born with the ability to sense suffering in the air, and the more suffering he was in, the stronger he became.
This caused problems both physical and mental, as a child, Charles did not know how to control his sillage, and so he would seek out dangerous and tragic events to bask in the pleasure that he gained from it. To this end, he was somewhat of a sadist at youth, as he intentionally fed off of the human suffering that he caused.
It was only later in his years that he discovered his unique power to not only bask in it, but also drain it, and intake it to himself for sustenance. This altered his life's philosophy and trajectory significantly, as he was motivated, primarily for the selfish desire to consume and intake as much tragedy as possible.
Charles joined Crux Fidelis, among the Hallowed, as a means to curb his addictions. In his spare time, he opened a clinic to treat those with ailments for free, feeding upon their ailments for sustenance. It was during this time that Charles met Rhiannon, whose unique curse and ailment made her suffer immensely. As a regular visitor and patient, Charles eventually developed feelings for the girl, and married her, convincing her to join the Hallowed.
Charles continues to work as a member of the Crux Fidelis, using his specialty as a healer to assist the front lines whenever able.
