Percival - GBF
A large greatsword he can summon from his flames. Aside from being a magical weapon with increased durability, there's really nothing special about it. He can light it on fire to make it more dangerous, but that's about it.
With a dragon father and demon mother, Rhaevyn can easily be considered a walking abomination. With abnormally dark flames that border on the color of the abyss, Rhaevyn's abominable nature manifests in the toxicity of his flames. Not only are they abnormally hot, but the 'fumes' they produce are quite caustic and can result in sickness ranging from nausea to vomiting. And coming into contact with the flames can leave people with wounds that, if not treated properly, can result in longstanding diseases or even require amputation of limbs. In addition to this, he can cover his body in extremely durable scales that can only be damaged by enchanted weapons or Bellicosa, or magic of ample strength. This does not negate all damage, of course. He can also assume the form of a large dragon, though he typically avoids this as it only serves to remind him of his father; at most, he'll create wings which grant him the ability of flight.
Sin of Desire
After being turned into the Sin of Desire by Pride, he gained the ability to create, identify and manipulate the desires of others. So long as someone has something they desire, after being around them for some time, he'll be able to 'identify' what it is they want (be it a lover, power, status or even an object). And through this, he can steadily manipulate them (requires OOC permission), either subliminally or directly. This can range from 'promises' that imply he can help them gain what they want, so long as they comply to his (or Irina's) wishes, or he can use those desires to turn them against others, convincing them that a person, place or thing may be standing in the way of what they want. And if he comes across someone who 'doesn't' have any desires, he can slowly create one within them.
Being raised by the Immortal Legion, Rhaevyn has been trained with a variety of weapons. And aside from his natural affinity for combat, years of fighting has accumulated into a natural experience that allows him to comfortably tackle most opponents.
Rhaevyn is an ambitious man who puts his own interests first and foremost. Despite being raised and trained as a knight, he hasn't stuck to those virtues that were instilled in him at a young age. While displaying some traits reminiscent of his father, Drautos, such as their shared detachment to a majority of society, Rhaevyn still manages to be his own distinct person.
But, perhaps due to his parentage and general lack of parenting, Rhaevyn has developed a startlingly obsessive personality. He is motivated by his own desires and greed; the lack of parental love turning into a desire to be loved by all. A large majority of everything he has done has been due to this - all of the battles he's fought, his obsession with his appearance and all of the skills he's accumulated.
He desires the adoration of all. And if he cannot have their adoration, then he'd happily take their hatred. So long as they feel something for him - be it positive or negative - he's more than fine with it. The only person whose love he truly desires is Irina's, the desire he feels for the woman being all encompassing and bordering on dangerously obsessive.
As the eldest son of Drautos Ramwryn, the expectations placed upon Rhaevyn were exceptionally high. And while he displayed all the attributes required to be seen as a potential leader, he also adopted his father's indifference to everything. Rhaevyn never really cared about leading the Red Legion - no, the only thing he cared about was the love of his parents. But while his mother seemed to always be gone, Drautos was present.
But, despite being the Lord of Cinder, Drautos was very cold towards Rhaevyn. Not uncaring but he wasn't your typical parent - he spent most of the child's life just leaving him on his own or intentionally putting him in dangerous situations to build character. And even when Rhaevyn overcame the trials his father presented him, the man never gave him the praise he craved.
And when Drautos left Rhaevyn on the doorstep of the Immortal Legion, the boy was even more dismayed. The fact of the matter was Drautos didn't have time to raise him, so he relied on others to do it for him. And with his mother being a non-factor, Rhaevyn grew up among the knights where he learned how to fight. But, it wasn't long before he struck out on his own.
And for a little under a century he roamed Sium searching. He didn't know for what, but he knew he would know it when he found it. And it materialized in the form of a red-haired beauty - Irina Relius. This was during a time when he had made a slight name for himself in Pluviall as a 'small town' hero. He was respected and admired, and his skill was undeniable.
But this woman didn't seem to care at all. For a while it was almost as if he was invisible to her, and when she finally did acknowledge him, it almost felt as though he was still insignificant to her. And this merely fueled his desire - to be truly acknowledged by her. The longer he sought her attention, the more engrossed he became with her - it became an obsession. A dangerous and unhealthy one, admittedly.
He desired her love. Perhaps it was due to some sort of Oedipus Complex - the lack of a mother causing him to seek some sort of unhealthy love from the woman. A love he coveted to the point he became willing to kill anyone that got too close to her.
And when she became a Sin, he followed. While she became the Sin of Envy, he became the Sin of Desire. He took the position of her vassal - her knight. Anything she requested of him would be carried out without hesitation, no matter what. She could ask him to kill his own father and he'd do it without a second thought, so long as it'd get him closer to her.
