One of the brothers that have moved to the Mansion in order to escape eventual servitude in their hometown of Attila due to recently apparent powers. Between the two, he has gained the powers of telepathy and technopathy alongside manipulable mental barriers and cryokinesis during his stay As the oldest of the two, he takes up the responsibilities of their decisions with a stiff upper lip and a cold exterior. Eldest son to Vernon Stiles, leader of the Stiles Conglomerate. Currently works for Isao Kakai in his computer shop.
Accentuate the Negative: Granted, he can be nice, but he just loves the catharsis of complaining about things more.
What the Hell, Dad?: Whenever his dad would come home, he would waste no time in constantly belittling the brothers emotionally and mentally, pushing them to become something of his own lofty ideals. Even the slightest thought of him leaves a bitter taste in his mouth.
Pro-Human Transhuman: Despite having no memory of being human despite a name, and as well as the fact he generally hates all of humanity, he for some reason still will identify as being human in thought.
Affably Evil: Often mistaken for an anti-hero, Greyscale is anything but that. He may not kill people, but he never said anything about not mutilating people.
You Would Not Want to Live in Dex: Greyscales world was destroied by something called the 'Yellowstone Incident', a time on which the volcano that is Yellowstone erupted and covered the entire planet in ash, sending it into an ice age and thousands of years without the Sun.
Affiliation: Amestrian Military
Skills: Blood-to-Iron Alchemy, Knifework
Faceclaim: Louise Brooks
An introverted young woman who is often seen hanging around more of the unsavory people of the Central Military, Helier is solemn, even-tempered and unerringly polite—unless you see her in the midst of a fight.
Dark and Troubled Past: Helier hears her father die at a young age during a riot in the streets of Central. Her mother dislikes her because “something’s off about her”, and hates the fact that she won’t stop practicing alchemy; not to mention that she obviously favours her two younger children over her. Helier joins the military at a young age after brainwashing herself to further her skills, and ending up believing that pain is a symbol of good work. After discovering her daughter joined the military, Helier’s mother disowns her. She has seen none of her family since she was 18.
"Technically" a mercenary who has fled to the Mansion after realizing the toxic effects of staying in her hometown. Transfixed into becoming an ideal hero by the teachings of her murdered parents, she moved on in order to pursue that goal at all times. At her arrival, she was usually cheery and helpful to anybody that needed any kind of help, to the point of accidentally getting Nighty to steal important files from the SCG so that she could be more informed. Now she is constantly saddling herself with problems, trying to find a means to an end to everything while trying not to break under the pressure.
Adult Fear: How would you feel if you were the cause of the deaths of all of the great friends you just met? Rean does not want this to happen at all.
Amateur Sleuth: Somewhat inverted in that she at least knows the basic workings of an investigation.
Amazonian Beauty: One of the tallest female tenants, regularly works out to the point of definition, wears loose and revealing clothes for the sake of functionality, and actually takes care to make herself look somewhat presentable in public.
Badass Normal: As a simple human and the only one who played a major role in investigating the underground tribes, which led to subsequently exposing the Shadow Tyrant and the Nephilim, she has mustered up enough grit, determination, and curiosity to get through the entire ordeal. It also helps that she holds a big enough array of weaponry to hold against her own.
White Knighting: Less out of gaining respect and more out of wanting to look out for people, she will often flock to those who seem to be in need of support.
The other brother who has come to the Mansion for the same reason as above. He has managed to garner together incredible strength and endurance, but is willing to try for more. Unlike his brother, he has a much warmer personality and is much more willing to be social and get to know people, which is why the Shadow Tyrant wants to probe his mind. Youngest son to Vernon Stiles, leader of the Stiles Conglomerate. Works for Nathan as a part-time lifter.
Big Eater: Somewhat justified in that he actually needs to consume a ton of food or else whatever has been giving him his strength will eventually leech off his musculus-skeletal system until he is left as a husk.
Bodyguard Crush: Inverted, seeing as how he's having the crush on Adelaide instead. However, he's ditched those feelings for Briar instead.
Emotional Powers: Not anything that he has to his own disposal, but when he's feeling quite angry, he taps into a much stronger form thanks to the parasite in his body that gave him his powers in the first place. Unfortunately, he's under it's destructive whims for some time afterwards. Fun.
Fool for Love: His first love was due to feelings stemming from a sort of rescue romance, his next crush was out of bad influences, and his current flame is now an amnesiac due to having to need her body reconstructed.
The Pollyanna: Still manages to keep a positive and hopeful attitude regardless of the situation. Drops it when he is being targeted.
Super Toughness: Has no problem with keeping heavy objects in the air for a long amount of time and jumping down from a few stories high. Eventually evolves into a healing factor after some natural growth.
Trauma Conga Line: He has to skip town to avoid servitude, gets his heart tinkered with from within his chest, is almost crushed to death by shadow tentacles, sees Adelaide almost bleed to death after she barely manages to come back after a mission, is under threat of a lobotomy by unknown forces, and nearly gets his soul reaped by the Nephilim. For someone that's just been trying to be nice to people and work what he can, the kid can't catch a friggin' break.
What the Hell, Dad?: See Cameron's entry above. Root's a less heavy example, seeing as how he still manages to keep a picture of the three of them in his wallet.
A half-Finnish necromancer and a fairly new arrival to the Mansion. Bit of an airhead.
Battle Butler: At one point in the Butler's life he use to be very good at fighting. This resulted from Jefferson Boragdine constantly making him exercise and learn how to, in fear he'd end up like his father. He's not so much of one anymore, but he still argues that he can defend himself just fine.
Friendless Background: When your parents are dead and you're getting pulled along by a stranger, you don't have time for fiends.
