Tropers / Caliburn Absolute EX

Go To

Welcome to the Cathedral of Shadows, where demons gather...

A proper introduction is in order. I'm Caliburn, but you can call me Cali or Cal. I'm college student from the United States, and I like to dabble in writing, acting, video games, and letting my free time get sucked away by this very wiki (and the rest of the internet too). I make it a policy to treat everyone with respect, so unless you're particularly heinous, I'll try to be as polite as possible.


If you're wondering about the EX in my handle, I had another account, but it had an underscore in the username, so I couldn't make a contributor page (at least, not one that I could link easily). I added the EX to this new one to differentiate the two. And also because Mettaton (though the Pokemon Trading Card Game was more of what I had in mind when I came up with it).

About a year ago, I started ITT: We Have All Become Pokémon. I don’t really play it anymore, so let Beverly, Black Mage Anolis, or Cabe_Bedlam know if you're interested! It may be a bit complicated and fast at times, but it's a fun experience!

    The Following Tropes May or May Not Apply to Me 
  • Absent-Minded Professor: I'm not going to downplay my intelligence (though I won't brag about it either), but I oftentimes have some really freaking stupid moments.
  • A God Am I: Any statements I make of this nature are purely in jest.
  • All-Loving Hero: Hero's a subjective term when it comes to real people, but I like to give everyone a chance or eighteen.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: I know for a fact that I've got something, I'm just not entirely sure what it is, and it overall doesn't really matter too much in the long run.
  • Angst? What Angst?: I'm usually not really hung up on many things for long. It's always best to keep moving in spite of adversity or hardships if you ask me.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: As I've said once, "Why should there be a point [to life] besides making your own?"
  • Antiquated Linguistics: On occasions not quite scarce, I doth slippen into use of such aulden tongue. Still pretty downplayed, all things considered.
  • Apologizes a Lot: I tend to apologize over insignificant things sometimes. Heck, one time my parents once asked me to stop apologizing so often. I then proceeded to apologize for doing so.
    • I also have apologized to inanimate objects.
    • Lately I've fallen into the habit of apologizing repeatedly in quick succession. Something I need to work on...
  • Badass Baritone: I can certainly pull one off, but my normal speaking voice isn't very deep.
  • Berserk Button: I have a few.
    • ...What, you expect me to list them here so you know how to press them? Hah, nice try.
  • Blind Without 'Em: My eyesight is beyond shit if I don't have my glasses.
  • Catchphrase: I would list these, but whenever I notice that I have one, it disappears.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: I like helping people, what more needs to be said?
  • Creator Thumbprint: It's not intentional, but I've noticed that some of my works (be they published or otherwise) contain the following elements:
  • Cuteness Overload: If something's cute then I'll probably love it. And marvel at its cuteness. And express a desire to pet it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: More downplayed in real life, but I've had a fair number of stand-out moments.
  • The Faceless: Only one person here knows just what I truly look like, and I intend to keep that detail under heavy wraps.
  • Friend to All Children: I try to give off a "cool older brother" sort of image.
  • Furry Fandom: I wanna say the fact that I'm a furry doesn't come up often, but that's a lie.
  • The Gadfly: What can I say? I like to mess with people sometimes.
  • Good Feels Good: I genuinely like helping other people and I feel bad if I can't.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Heck is objectively the best low-level expletive (if it can even be called one), this is an inarguable fact.
  • Grammar Nazi: Have I ever mentioned how much it irks me when people mix up its and it's? Oh, those poor, misused apostrophes...
  • Gratuitous German: I occasionally drop bits of it here and there, particularly saying guten nacht instead of good night. You know, maybe it'll give people the wrong impression if I put this trope so close to Grammar Nazi?
    • I have been informed that guten nacht is not grammatically correct, and the proper phrase is gute nacht. Just goes to show how much I actually know about the language, huh?
  • The Heart: I extend my kindness towards all, be they friend or otherwise! I'm always willing to hear someone out if they need help, no matter who that someone is! (Actually, who that someone is is kinda important, but I give everyone a fair chance.)
  • Insane Forgiveness: I'm an easygoing guy, you'd have to do something pretty despicable to get me to lose faith in you.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: It's an objective fact that cats are the greatest animals on the face of the planet, you cannot argue with this.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Yeah, the world is pretty shitty, but that doesn't give me the right to make it any shittier. I mean, who would that even benefit anyways?
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Whenever I'm onstage, I'm typically typecast as rich people, jerks, or rich jerks. Offstage, I make a point of trying to be a nice person.
  • Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: I avert this, being male and a fanfic writer myself. Not that I've actually written fanfiction in a while, though...
  • Nice Guy: Well, I certainly try to be. So far I'd say I do a pretty good job.
  • The Nicknamer: I usually come up with or use dumb nicknames for a lot of things/people. I should make a list...

    The Following Are Works That I May or May Not Have Made, Be They Published or Otherwise 
  • As Above, So Below (A retelling of Shin Megami Tensei IV with a few changes made here and there, presented as a forum quest on this very forum. Published and canceled in its current form.)
  • Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Astral Frontier (A Pokémon Mystery Dungeon fanfic with multiple viewpoint protagonists and some elements of Deconstruction. It began as a way for me to try writing something without planning it ahead of time, but then I began to plot things out, as I always do, and long story short you can expect a Door Stopper if I ever get that far. Published and canceled in this current form.)
  • Shining Megami Tensei: AMITY (A crossover between My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and Shin Megami Tensei that I wrote when I was just getting into both franchises. It was unfortunately lost before it could be published and I question whether it was a good idea to begin with, but nonetheless, I consider it noteworthy enough to mention here. Unpublished and canceled.)
  • Steamedeth Hammes (A Deltarune shitpost that retells the infamous Steamed Hams skit with Rouxls Kaard and Ralsei. Published on Archive of Our Own.)
  • A Vagabond's Odyssey [tentative title] (An RPG Maker game following a mercenary named Iris as she escorts a prince on his quest for revenge. Sounds cliche at first, but if you ask me, the execution is what really matters, and I plan on making it stand out in at least some capacity. Unpublished and in-progress.)
