Black, but no hair will grow
Height and Build:
5'10" of tightly packed, lean muscle. In order to be one of the Children, you need to be in good condition.
Alastor tends to wear whatever is available, favoring clothing that's tough, close-fitting, and quiet. He also tends to wear little, as having as much skin available as possible is important to the Children. Typical wear is a pair of rough jeans, shoes, and an open cloth vest with no shirt underneath.
- Collapsible crossbow (kept in a leather holster on his hip)
- 10 bolts, wrapped tightly in bundles of two, with a bundle tucked away with the bow at all times
- Lighter fluid (small amount)
- 3 energy clumps (nutrient-dense balls made from foraged and cultivated plants that are given to the wanderers)
Alastor was born into the Children of the Damned, with the Cent being all he's known. He fully absorbed the Cent's teachings, learning all about his demon and the demons of others. When he underwent his ritual, he knew that others had stuck a finger or a hand in the flames. He stuck his head in. The flames burned all of his hair off, leaving him with angry red streaks along his scalp that have never fully healed, nor has his hair ever grown back. Since he became a man, he's become obsessed with exploring the Frontier, finding new members to bring back to the Children, and finding new places for them to expand their territory. Due to this craving, he was assigned to the wanderers, a group dedicated to exactly that. Now he roams the Frontier for weeks at a time, scrounging to keep himself alive and storing away whatever he can to bring back to his Cent.
- Nightvision: Members of the Children are taught to be able to see more clearly in the dark. This does not result in crystal-clear vision, but a dramatically reduced need for light.
- Stealth: Wanderers are trained to move quietly and make as little noise as possible, even when moving normally. Again, this does not make them silent, simply far quieter.
- Unarmed/Knife Combat: Fitting with the motif of stealth as the primary option, wanderers are trained to fight with knives or simply their bare hands.
- High Pain Tolerance: As the act of calling upon their demon requires Children to inflict harm upon themselves, all Children of the Damned have a high threshold of pain tolerance.
- Please note that any demonic skills are not superhuman, rather increased from the typical human average. Activation of these skills requires a self-inflicted wound.
Despite all the talk of demons and all the edgy persona that comes with the territory, Alastor is an unusually friendly man. He tends to greet others in the Frontier as potential allies, rather than potential enemies. His odd, stilted way of talking tends to freak some people out, but that doesn't seem to bother him, and he seems unaware of its effect. However, betrayal or hostility towards him results in a shift in tone and behavior. His friendly demeanor hides the cold-blooded killer that waits beneath the service, ready to do anything for the preservation of his Cent, even at the cost of his own life.
