(YC only) Where do you live prior to meeting Adan (the setting for the rp):
(MC only) Why did you move to where YC lives (besides Trian forcing you to):
Name: Adan Hunter Bennington
Nickname(s): Adan, A, Bennington, Dream (when in his Dream form), Nightmare (when in his Nightmare form), and “He who fights with himself”
Birthday: 3/1, but he can’t remember when he was born
Age: Around 4,500, but appears to be in his twenties
Zodiac sign: Pisces
Species: Somnium born from another Somnium
Powers: To other Somnium, Adan is known as a Melody-Weaver, but to any other supernatural, his power is sonokinesis. His hearing is much more advanced than humans while also having better protection from loud noises, and depending upon which form he’s in, that determines the color of his power appears to be alongside the strengths and weaknesses while in use. When in his Dream form, the light that forms while he’s using his powers is emerald in color, and he’s better with defense, healing, and anticipating any attacks that might be thrown at him. While in his Nightmare form, the light is scarlet, and he appears to be better at offensive movements, swifter than in his Dream form, and his landed attacks do twice the amount of damage. However, he’s unable to create sound without an existing source, and even with his own voice as a potential source for sound, he’s still limited by his own physical restraints when it comes to his limits. Yet if Adan were to ever figure out how to split himself from his Nightmare form, only time will tell whether the two will try to work together against an enemy, or if they will try to kill each other like they do in their dreams.
Why did you move to where YC lives (besides Trian forcing you to): He was actually drawn to the area from the moment YC was born, but he’ll claim instead that he fell head over heels after finding pictures from the area and convinced Trian/Mitchell to move there.
Personality: Adan has been, and always will be, an enigma when it comes to describing himself. While in his Dream form, he’s known for being kind, lending a helping hand, and is always playing some kind of music to be able to remain calm rather than constantly anxious. He knows more about the world than he cares to let on, yet when he’s around Trian/Mitchell, he appears to go off into his own world with his “brother (though he’s later revealed to be the Somnium that turned him into one)” and appears to listen to orders while doubting if it’s really necessary to follow them once again. He can be a bit of an unintentional flirt at times, ranging from something minor about a person’s appearance to making it impossible not to blush at what he says about things he’s noticed about them. To many, he’d never think of hurting those he cares about, and he shows a strong sense of loyalty when it comes to both family and a romantic interest. However, if anyone were to meet Adan’s Nightmare form, things would be much different if this is the first form encountered.
Adan’s Nightmare form is a far cry compared to his Dream form, and it’d be hard to guess that this is the side he wants to hide the most from his newfound friends alongside the current incarnation of his match to those that haven’t seen it. He will be volatile when it comes to his temper, quick to cause any sort of pain, and known to blare pure static as a way to torture someone when he involves sounds. This form allows for him to reveal what he does know about the world, and his knowledge about what actually happened in history proves he’s much older than he appears to be. He’ll also be more vulgar when it comes to compliments, but rather than hesitate to do so in his Dream form, he’ll go as far as to touch his match in a way that he knows is beyond inappropriate by any standards. This form takes pleasure in causing others pain, but wouldn’t dare touch Trian/Mitchell due to knowing his word is law regardless of who he’s going to hurt in the process. Adan is only able to have both forms split from each other when he dreams, and as of Judgement coming back, he knows that she’s the only one to see both sides of him at once, but he knows that he’ll eventually have to learn how to split himself so the two forms don’t have to fight within him all the time.
- Judgement (even if she’s unaware of who he is when they meet this time around)
- Music (mainly alternative music)
- Playing instruments (guitar is his favorite, and it kept him sane between his match’s reincarnations)
- D&D (something he picked up between his match’s lifetimes, and he’s quite good at it)
- Songwriting (which he’s had centuries to work on)
- Dancing (which he doesn’t do unless he’s singing)
- Trian in his Dream form

- Trian in general
- Losing Judgement again
- Losing Judgement permanently
- What the future holds (both how it should’ve been and the aftermath of Trian changing Judgement’s fate in her lifetimes)
- Never really being able to show people what he can do
Adan was always there to meet Judgement at various times after she was reborn, and while he’s always watched her die because of Trian, each death the former witnessed made his Nightmare more insane as time passed. To cope, he turned to music, even going as far as to write songs in various languages as the only way to keep his Dream form sane. Each appearance altered history in some way, and the two worst happened to be the World Wars since it was the fastest she’d ever been reincarnated. This time around, they noticed a few random things that they had no idea if it would be significant: she was being raised human, she was mostly unaware of the powers she gained to help defend herself, and the younger Somnium failed to alert the elder that now he shared dreams with her, which allowed for him to get to know her without revealing any major details about himself besides the fact that he had stopped aging after a traumatic incident. He saw how each attempt had consequences for her, and secretly began plotting a way to liberate them from the man they both dealt with. After the latest attempt on Judgement’s life failed and alerted her personality in retaliation, Adan convinced Trian to pose as his brother while living in her town to help go back to the normal method, unknowingly setting off a chain of events that could hopefully set the two of them free from the already insane Somnium.
He was willing to pay any price to set them free, even if it meant parting because of death so they could meet again without Trian’s influence.
Weight: 170 lbs.
Supernatural feature: Adan has two forms: his normal form that he knows as his Dream form, and a much more volatile form he knows as his Nightmare form. To distinguish between the two, the Nightmare appears to be paler, has reddish-violet streaks running down its face as if it were constantly crying, and overall appears to be very calculating while the Dream is bound to its emotions for making decisions. Yet when transitioning between the forms, he may appear cunning, persuasive, and show a higher tendency for violence, but any forced transitions may be physically painful for both forms.
