PostSubject: Damon Oleander   Sun May 27, 2018 10:36 pm

Name: Damon Oleander

Age: 18

Gender: Male

Sexuality: Hetero

Faceclaim: Tom Hardy (but it’s young-ass Tom Hardy from the 90s and early 00s, not scary as hell Bronson Tom Hardy)

Pic:
 



Place of Birth: Dundas, Ontario, CA

Race: Caucasian

Hair color: Brown

Eye color: Blue-green

Height: 5'9"

Weight: 165 lbs.

Body type: Mesomorph



Mortal parent(s): Mara Delacroix (née Oleander), Francis Delacroix (stepfather)

God parent: Phobos


Personality: Damon is insecure and socially awkward, so he mainly keeps to himself. He's not much of a "saving people" person unless he's forced into the situation or someone he knows is involved. He's struggled with his identity as a demigod and his feelings for his father, whom he despises for abandoning him and his mother when she became pregnant, for several years now. While (as mentioned before) he lacks the "saving people" quality, he is still immensely loyal to his friends and fellow campers and will pretty much do anything for them—no matter how dangerous or stupid. Damon can also be rather blunt at times to the point of rudeness, but if he realizes this mistake he will try to make amends. While he couldn't care less of what someone he doesn't care about thinks of him, he values his friends' opinions and will often listen to their advice about something. Damon likes to solve issues reasonably (even though he hates talking to people most of the time) but he is perfectly fine with brawling if it comes to that. Once he gets to know someone, however, he will loosen up, revealing his other aspects, such as his sense of humor or his interests.

Talents: Sword fighting, strategy, playing guitar, some hand-to-hand combat, can make a pyramid of cards, bilingual

Flaws: Generally doesn’t trust others, bad at opening up, bottles up anger, can be violent at times, bad at controlling his powers

Weapon(s): a CB xiphos that turns into a drachma, a CB shield that turns into his watch, and a silver dagger

Abilities:

  • Can sense one's fear(s) and what makes them uncomfortable instantly (usually senses these unconsciously)


  • Can rage through a battle without fear of death or injury, making him a very vicious fighter—though he is apt to be less careful


  • Can produce an aura of fear—mostly in battle, but may also occur unintentionally when he is experiencing extreme emotion, such as anger


  • Can instinctively find his way through any battlefield safely


Powers:

  • Damon is able to create hallucinations that cause a person to see their worst fear(s) a limited amount of time. If he uses this on just one person, the affects can last for eight posts with a cool-down of five posts. If he uses this on two people, the affects can last for five posts with a cool-down of seven posts. If he uses this on more than two people, the affects last for three posts with a cool-down of ten posts. Damon becomes weaker after using this depending on how much he uses it and could pass out if he uses it on large amounts (about ten targets). Those with exceptionally strong willpower can fight through the hallucinations.


  • Once per topic, Damon can paralyze a character with fear. This effect lasts fifteen posts but will cause him to pass out from the effort



History: Damon Oleander was born to Mara Oleander (who had been aware of Phobos's identity) in Dundas, Ontario. They lived there until Damon was 6; they then moved to the U.S., where they later became citizens. Mara married Francis Delacroix about four years later. Delacroix had three children of his own with his first wife: Eric, Anita, and Gregory. Damon got along with his step-siblings—though he sometimes got into fistfights with Eric, who was three years older than him.

Damon's life was relatively normal until he was nearly 13; then he began to notice that people often grew uncomfortable around him, even his family members. Kids his age stopped wanting to talk and hang out with him. Then, one day while walking in the park, he was attacked by a huge animal. He was knocked unconscious during the attack. Later, he would recall his attacker as a wolf and that a girl with a silver sword saved him, though even the witnesses said it looked like a giant, brown husky and that his rescuer hit it multiple times with a baseball bat.

After being attacked, his life never reverted back to normal. He started to have nightmares about falling from heights, being locked in a box, drowning, and a bunch of other terrible things. Worried about his mental health, his teachers recommended him to therapy. Realizing that it was the time to tell him the truth, Mara revealed to her son that he was a demigod, the spawn of a mortal and a god, and that his father was Phobos, the god of fear. At first, Damon refused to believe such stupidity (he was a rational human being, after all), but as his life as he knew it continued to crash around him, he was forced to accept this new reality.

Damon ran away from his home at the age of 15 and began living on the streets, evading monsters and mortals alike. He (surprisingly) survived as a homeless demigod for about a year before meeting Zach, a fellow demigod who said that he was "unclaimed." Zach convinced him to come with him to a group of other demigods led by a son of Hermes named Luke Castellan, to which Damon eagerly accepted. The two became good friends on the journey there.

Believing the group to be banded together just for survival, Damon stayed with them for several months, and learned most of his basic combat skills, which he perfected later. Though he never met Luke Castellan or ever saw him, he heard that he was a powerful demigod and a great warrior and respected him for his deeds. It wasn't until Damon overheard a conversation between Zach and another demigod that he learned their true purpose: to overthrow Olympus, destroy the gods, and bring the Titans back to power. Now, Damon wasn't very knowledgeable about the details, but he knew enough from school to know that 1.) the Titans were bad, 2.) if the Greek gods were real then the Titans could be real, too, and that 3.) he didn't want to help get the Titans—who, as aforementioned, were bad—back in a role of leadership. He left the group, feeling angry for being lied to and used.

Damon returned back to his old life as a loner, only now he had weapons and the knowledge of how to use him. He experienced several different monsters and managed to survive—sometimes killing them, sometimes getting lucky and finding a car that was willing to drive a ragged, homeless, bloody teenage boy to a gas station. Quite accidentally, he met a demigod that had been part of Luke's group at a Denny's, who informed him of the existence of Camp Half-Blood. Seeing that anywhere would be better than the position he was in at the moment, Damon agreed to return with the demigod to the camp, where he’s remained ever simce.

Likes: Comic books, movies, some anime, grunge music, hearing other people try to sing, any movie with Daniel Day-Lewis, places where it’s quiet

Dislikes: the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies, obnoxious people people in general, eating pork, any kind of dog or wolf

Notes:
Sorry for the long-ass history thingy. I’m posting from my phone and didn’t feel like editing, plus my histories are normally short and I like Damon being a former member of Kronos’s army.
