Varius Lekismon (champion) || Info Gatherer/Broker About A nigh perpetual wanderer, Varius has, up 'til shortly before the humans started arriving in the digital world, lived with his pointedly nomadic family, who made it a point not to trust anyone who wasn't them, and similarly to stay away from populated areas. Since he wandered off and lost full track of them, however, he's largely just been wandering, sticking to the outskirts and being cautious about who he encounters, while at the same time keeping his ears out for anything and everything that could be of some interest... whether regarding the family he wishes to get back to and be able to protect, but has little hope of doing so, or just about anything else. Friends With all his time spent away from others, and his family's teachings to not trust them, Varius is inevitably very socially awkward, never being quite certain what to say... but still wanting to make a change, make some sort of effort to form some attachments now that he's otherwise alone. The problem, of course, is that he doesn't know how to, so friends remain relatively few and far between. Catch him with music or sweet foods, though, and he can hardly resist. Enemies Tricky as social interactions are for him, he doesn't always recognize something like an 'enemy' or 'rival' for what they are. He does, however, recognize when anyone's getting hurt, and while he perhaps doesn't hold grudges, as such, he doesn't take well to those hurting others, and may be known to get a bit... needlessly aggressive at times to try and fix the situation. Romance Even more than enemies, this is something Varius isn't good at recognizing for what it is... nor, especially, does he know how to react to it. 'Awkward stammering' is generally the best he can do (and, perhaps, hints that he might be interested, whether human or digimon; he sees no point in making a distinction). Though well, once again, it's quite easy to attract him with music or sweets... 'gifts' he'll likely try to repay in kind for anyone he might take an interest in. ~~~~~~~~~~ Fritz Gumdramon (rookie) || Tinkerer/Craftsman About Energetic, friendly, and social as can be, Fritz is the type to never waste an opportunity to greet someone passing by, at the very least. Having spent his early life under parents who were under a strict mindset of 'settle for life as it is, don't try to be anything special', it can hardly be said that it hasn't left certain... scarring, but the Gumdramon rarely, if ever, shows it. Instead, he likes to occupy his time with work, or otherwise little trinkets he finds or decides to make. Years of work here and there in Factorial City have allowed him the skills and funds to set up his own (albeit small) shop there, though he's still been known to stock up a backpack and wander off somewhere to search for any new parts or trinkets, or anyone that might need a little hand elsewhere. Of particular interest at the moment is humans, after he got a glimpse of one of their cities during a Labyrinth Event, and of trinkets and tech unfamiliar to him. Friends Overtly friendly as Fritz is, 'friends' are something he tends to have an easy enough time making... and indeed has a decent few of over in Factorial City, where he's spent no less than a day helping out most of the workplaces there in his endeavor to learn. Often enough, he'll chat up someone unfamiliar to him, or otherwise anyone who stops by his little shop, always apparently willful to make new connections and just generally interact with people. Enemies For as friendly as he is, though, he has his certain... issues. Not least of all anyone who dares say that someone isn't capable of something (well, within reason)... something he begs to prove wrong at most every turn, for as much as he's still got a bit of recovery to do from similar treatment. He'll not often outright fight, but he will most certainly step in, and very much remember any 'transgressors' to his insistence that anyone can be special. Romance Females in general... well, suffice it to say, Fritz is quite weak to them, up to and including being easily wrapped around their finger if it comes to it. If he can help them out at all, he's only too happy with himself... and any that catch his interest in particular are liable to find themselves with a little extra. At least, assuming he's not direct about simply asking them out, never mind any time he might've been rejected by others in the past. All he has to do is move on and find the right one, right? ~~~~~~~~~~ Irena Bakal Warrior (Egyptian mythos theme) || 20 || Minimum Wage Employee About After 16 years of life moving from place to place thanks to her parents, and never really being able to retain friends beyond it... much as she's tried to avoid it, Irena is just a bit of a loner. She likes to do her own thing, and while it's all the better if others come along for the proverbial ride, she's never too fussed if they don't, as long as she can have some sort of good time of it. She has a few hobbies besides, including some martial arts, and a bit of music, but mostly she just does whatever seems fun for her, and likes her place as the 'leader' of the group of friends she's made back in the real world. Friends All in all, Irena is a friendly enough person, especially around any shared hobbies (of which she has more than a few, along with a willingness to develop still more). Yet, even with that being said, she possesses a certain stubbornness that almost demands she be in the lead, and which she knows full well can rub some people the wrong way. She is, however, quite faithful to those she comes to like; all the more so wanting them to stick around after so many years of not being allowed to retain friends, and has been known to go to some efforts to assure that happens. Enemies While she won't directly admit to it, Irena has something of a 'if you're not with me, you're against me' mindset. Not, perhaps, the greatest thing to have especially alongside her strong will, and it's gotten her into more than one conflict in the recent past, especially paired with something of a rebellious streak shortly after her parents got her an apartment of her own. Granted, she doesn't particularly hold grudges, but she's not the most pleasant person in disagreements either. Romance Given her history, 'romance', such as it is, isn't something she holds very close. 'Flings' would be rather more accurate; testing the waters, in some sense, and trying to determine for herself what, or indeed who, she might really like. Thus, those that might be interested in her best be prepared for her not to take it terribly seriously at first. But who knows? There's always some chance. ~~~~~~~~~~ Ambre Travers Warrior (Gestalt; Japanese creature theme) || 17 || Student/Rehab Patient About Due to a series of incidents, Ambre has little enough use of one of her legs to be confined in a wheelchair so as to not strain it outside rehab. One such session of which she was pulled from courtesy of a labyrinth event, dumping her in the digital world nearly right on top of her now partner, the Kudamon Edgar, who can frequently be found relaxing around the girl's shoulders, or in her lap, as she wheels them around. Due to that, her mobility is, as one might imagine, fairly limited... at least, outside the times they share the form of a Reppamon, but then they're still getting used to actually being together in such a way. Friends While Ambre herself can be fairly shy, and Edgar a bit... aggressive, at times, what she yearns for is friends, seeing new sights, adventures; what anyone would want out of a brand new world to explore, surely. Admittedly, she may be a bit forgetful and distractable at times, and the wheelchair can be a bit of a sensitive subject, especially somewhere she can't immediately pursue continued rehab, but if she's stuck in this new situation anyway, she plans to at least have some fun with it. Enemies Bring up the wheelchair too much, get too far on Edgar's bad side (even if their opinions can differ fairly drastically on some matters), or especially, happen to pick on her, perceived or otherwise... well, it's not too difficult to make some degree of enemy of Ambre, if it comes to it. It's not something she'd much prefer to make, and she can't generally do much about it given the wheelchair, but she can still be annoyed about it, right? Romance With her still being young, and much of her time spent away from others, romance is something she occasionally dreams about, but has no real thought about or clue pursuing. In the first place, she doesn't have any idea what her interests actually are... but maybe someday.
