Bastien Delacroix ✘
War is overdue, The time has come for you
Healer's Touch - Advanced
The ability to heal the wounds or illnesses of others.
Bastien is able to heal those in need of it with a direct touch of his hands to the injured's skin. Minor scrapes, cuts, bruises, burns and the like are not a problem for him, but larger gashes and injuries take a lot of energy from him and thus he likes to avoid using his powers on these types of things. Bastien does not hold the power to heal any fatal injuries, only the possibility of slowing it down long enough to get the injured to the hospital. He is also unable to cure fatal diseases.
Power Negation - Intermediate
The ability to negate the effects of other abilities.
Bastien also has the ability to nullify other persons abilities. He doesn't have the best grasp on this yet though, so anyone with strong powers will still have an affect on him. Unfortunately for him, it's not necessarily something that he can really train on or practice on, so he more or less just passively takes note of when he seems to be most affected and when he doesn't.
Warped and bewitched, Time to erase whatever they say
Bastien is a fairly tall man standing at six feet four inches, with a slender athletic build to him. He isn't particularly muscular but he isn't a skinny bean pole either. His orangey ginger hair is on the longer side stopping just below his shoulders and always seems to be a mess in his face, despite the fact he will often wear a fedora hat upon his head. His eyes are a pale blue that sometimes even looks grey.
He wears a black hat with a red hatband, and a thin silver chain that hangs over the brim. His usual outfit consists of a white button up shirt under a charcoal grey vest, a black choker in the style of a pet collar, a black ribbon bolo tie held together with a small silver buckle, an open black cropped jacket with the sleeves rolled up at the elbows, black slacks, a black belt hanging off his right hip and black low-arch shoes.Bastien is almost always seen wearing black gloves. He may also sport a thigh-length black coat with light-coloured lining and lapels that he will wear around his shoulders like a cape.
Oppose and disagree, Destroy demonocracy
Bastien is an introverted, tactile and judgemental male. He has a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in his areas of interest and responsibility. He is also noted for his devotion to any duty he might be burdened with. Though punctual and dedicated, he will often give the initial impression of being aloof and perhaps somewhat cold at times even if that isn't the case.
He is easily frustrated by the inconsistencies of others, especially when the second parties don't keep their commitments. But he will usually keep his feelings to himself unless he is asked about it. And when asked, he won't mince words. Truth wins out over tact. When it comes to his own areas of expertise -- and he has several -- he will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not he can help you, and if so, how. Bastien knows what he knows, and perhaps still more importantly, he knows what he doesn't know.
He is a perfectionist, with a seemingly endless capacity for improving upon anything that takes his interest. What prevents him from becoming chronically bogged down in this pursuit of perfection is the pragmatism so characteristic of the type: Bastien applies (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from his own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing him from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake.
Personal relationships, particularly romantic ones, tend to be Bastien's Achilles heel. While he is capable of caring deeply for others (usually a select few), and is willing to spend a great deal of time and effort on a relationship, the knowledge and self-confidence that makes him so successful in other areas can suddenly abandon or mislead him in interpersonal situations. This happens in part because he does not readily grasp the social rituals; for instance, he tends to have little patience and less understanding of such things as small talk and flirtation (which most consider half the fun of a relationship). To complicate matters, Bastien is an extremely private person, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes him easy to misread and misunderstand. Perhaps the most fundamental problem, however, is that he really wants people to make sense. This sometimes results in a peculiar naivete', and he will expect inexhaustible reasonability and directness.
When it comes to work Bastien is a confident, self-assured and independent person. He absolutely loves nothing better than new challenges and holds a sharp eye for errors and can criticize without mercy if he sees the success of a project endangered. He seems to perform at highest efficiency when employing a step-by-step approach. Once a new procedure has proven itself (i.e., has been shown "to work,") he can be depended upon to carry it through, even at the expense of his own health.
Titles and established authorities don’t impress Bastien in the least. If someone is competent in his eyes, he will have no problem occasionally listening to them. If they are not, there is no way that he’ll want to obey their instructions just because they have a title of importance on their shoulder. Furthermore, he is all for equal rights and would prefer that everybody have the same rights.
These people are torn, Wild and bereft, Assassin is born
Bastien was born to an upper middle class family as the second child to the family but the first son. His father was an accountant at a large corporation and his mother was a stay at home mom until he was about five years old. She then returned to her former job as an administrative assistant at a well off law firm. Bastien's sister Anna was always protective of her younger brother being four years older than him, which was fine when they were children but seemed to irritate Bastien more and more the older they got.
In his last year of primary school, Bastien began to show signs of his natural power, healing a classmate's paper cut without knowledge of why or how. Despite this fact, when he completed primary school at the age of 11, Bastien was sent off to boarding school to fend for himself. This caused a rift between his family and himself as he never spent time with them and felt unwanted during his pubescent years, learning to cope with his ability on his own. It remained this way for the rest of his schooling years until he graduated high school at the age of 18, now with better understanding of his natural ability only to discover he seemed to have a secondary one.
Returning to his home only for a brief moment, Bastien informed his estranged parents that he would be attending a good school rather far away. His mother seemed displeased with the idea, but his father seemed fairly indifferent about it. His sister offered to go as well, but Bastien immediately refused that idea stating that he needed to be on his own. Bidding his family farewell, that would be the last time he has ever seen them.
With the intention of studying medicine and becoming a doctor, Bastien made it rather safely too his school, but it would be rather short lived. Within his first month of school, walking back to his apartment from campus he witnessed a fellow being attacked. This wasn't just a normal attack though, the attacker seemed to be controlling the shadows around them. It seemed Bastien's sudden presence scared them off and the victim was left in a slump on the ground. Bastien did his best to heal the victim, but soon passed out due to too much energy consumption.
When he finally awoke he was in a strange place that he didn't recognize, unknowing that his entire life was about to change. The order had picked him up and decided on a new life path for him. Not that he didn't have a choice of course. He could have left in a box, so to speak, if he wanted. Still, it wasn't the worst thing that could have happened to the guy so he accepted their proposal being tossed into their hotel staff to help out there. This didn't surprise Bastien in the least since he had no skills to help him hunt, and he was perfectly happy helping run the operations here. Bastien was fantastic at customer service and managed to rise to a front desk manager over the course of the years. Now at 22 years of age, Bastien has grown accustomed to his life, even buying and carrying a hand gun on him for those "just in case" moments. Something he would have never considered before.
