original dark fantasy
Practice of SeditionIn a world built upon a foundation of conflict, the past year has been notably violent. As Crux Fidelis, the Crusaders and ruling faction of Sium, suffer heavy losses from a particularly bloody Aphelion, other factions are emboldened to take action. Despite being allies, Weltschmerz's ambitious and duplicitous nature sees them taking bigger risks which threaten to break their alliance. All the while, Apocrypha continues to gain public sympathy and support while the Black Sun Cabal and Poena Damni continue to wreak havoc. As Sium races towards yet another conflict, it’s evident that a war lurks on the horizon.

Crux Fidelis, Hallowed
Arjuna - F/GO
A thing but noticeable scar runs from just outside his left eye to his right eye, with the scar being most prominent across the bridge of his nose. He is completely blind in his left eye.
He only has one wing, with a large scar being where the other once was.
Gandiva - Aeson's Bellicosa, when not in use, takes the form of a gauntlet. When activated, Gandiva becomes a bow. This bow does not use arrows, but rather acts a conduit for Aeson's silliage - allowing him to fire arrows of pure silliage. In addition to this, Aeson can 'break' his bow in two - using it was twin short swords. He can still channel his silliage to the blades, only instead of firing arrows, he can 'increase' the length of each blade until they're comparable to claymores.
[Aeson can sprout pure white wings, resembling that of an angel. With a flap of his wings, he can 'launch' feathers of pure light at his enemy. These arrows can pierce most targets or he can 'prime' them, causing them to explode upon contact.]
[Aeson is capable of creating runes. These runes can be cast on himself to strengthen his body, making him physically stronger or faster, while also 'casting' them at a target area to slow his targets or even completely restrict their movement.]
[Aeson's left hand can be used to heal others, while also creating shields and barriers. Aeson's right hand can be used to 'destroy' or 'deconstruct' inanimate objects based on the quality of the object. With a simple touch from his right hand, he can 'break' wooden doors or even certain locks. Anything of higher quality, such as other bellicosa or magically enchanted weapons are almost impossible for him to break unless he has an inordinate amount of time. ]
[Being a Nephilim, he is physically superior to most. In both terms of strength, speed and reflexes. His greatest asset is the fact he lacks the ability to feel pain, but this is also a double edged sword. Being unable to feel pain allows him to fight for extended periods of time, but he can be ignorant to the damage his body has sustained until he's fully immobilized or dead. ]
[Perhaps it was by accident, coincidence or design but Aeson's life is tied to Freyr. Aeson himself has no soul and his 'life' is tied to Freyr's. No matter the 'wound' he suffers, be it decapitation, melting or anything that would certainly prove fatal, he will not die. Instead, his body will abnormally regenerate from any fatal wound. The only way for Aeson to die is to kill Freyr himself. The moment Freyr dies is the moment Aeson dies.]
Aeson is wholly dedicated to Crux Fidelis, having spent his entire life since his creation in service of it. While even The Virtues may sometimes have second-thoughts, Aeson has never once had a second thought about what he does for Crux Fidelis. This dedication serves as the basis and motivation for everything Aeson has done and will do. While most would assume that having the position of 'Virtue' denied from him all of his life he would have some animosity towards Crux Fidelis, he is level-headed enough to understand why such a thing could never be given to him.
Aeson's dedication to Crux Fidelis is also what makes him dangerous. He treats anyone that opposes Crux Fidelis as his enemy. He holds a special hatred inside of him for the members of Apocrypha, as they have directly betrayed Crux Fidelis. This pathological hatred results in him actively hunting members of Apocrypha, as if it was a sport. The pleasure he derives from this is a testament to not only his mental instability, but also his dedication to the Crux. Aside from members of Apocrypha, the only group that can match his hatred of them are Freyr Aldrich and any of his 'family'.
If asked who he hates more between defectors and Freyr, Aeson will always answer Freyr. He would even spare traitors if it meant he'd get the chance to Freyr. There is nothing or no one he hates more than Freyr. When asked, he will never explain - always replying with silence. Knowing that he is essentially a clone of a Demon, especially one that is an Anathema, provides him with ample motivation to kill Freyr.
Aside from this, Aeson can be an extremely pleasant individual to his fellow members of Crux Fidelis and anyone that supports them. Having lived for several centuries, and in some subconscious attempt to prove he's more than the clone of Freyr, he is quite the gentleman. Soft-spoken, courteous, kind , courageous and respectful are all words people would use to describe Aeson. So long as you're not a member of Freyr's family or a member of Apocrypha, you can expect Aeson to treat you fairly and with respect, even if you're a criminal.
Aeson was not born, but rather he was 'created' in secret during a time when humans first began to fight back against demons. Being the result of splicing angel dna with a demon's, Aeson has fought for centuries in service of Crux Fidelis. Though his original creators have long since passed away, he continues to fight in service of Crux Fidelis as they would have wished.
If you asked him to recount his life story, he would only be able to summarize various battles that he's fought. At some point in his life, he learned of his connection with Freyr Aldrich and since then he's made it his goal to kill the demon.
