Who do you think the real enemy is? [Erwin Plotter Reboot]
« on: November 12, 2019, 05:36:19 PM »

ERWIN SMITH – SURVEY CORPS COMMANDER

Each one of you has my respect.
Let’s talk personality here for a moment: Erwin is decidedly complex.  He is serious, self-assured, pragmatic, perceptive, and always planning far for the future.  Furthermore, he is what could be called a “strong and silent type”, and doesn’t speak more than is necessary; whether he is calling someone out, or speaking to a crowd to stir up support.  As such, he has a stoic charisma that draws people to him.  Despite this he does have a softer side and has a deep concern for his subordinates. But underneath this exterior is a man who is riddled by self-doubt, guilt and many regrets.  Perhaps this, or something darker, drives his almost single-minded determination to defend humanity.

It is interesting to note however, that he seems to sit somewhere between his two immediate subordinates, Levi Ackerman and Hange Zoë.  Where Levi is rude, anti-social, and aggressive, Erwin is polite, direct, and calm.  Where Hange is loud, outgoing, and impulsive, Erwin is quiet, introverted, and patient.

Who do you think the real enemy is?
Erwin may not always play well with others, but that doesn’t mean that he is beyond hope of building bonds of trust and respect with others within his unit.  After serving in the Survey Corps for well over a decade, it would be impossible for to not have built even a handful of these relationships despite his trust issues. 

As for romantic relationships?  Perhaps it would be best to play it by ear, but as a man wholly dedicated to his cause, they are highly unlikely, but not impossible.

Sir, I have a proposition…
Here are some RP ideas:
Mission planning – Erwin is the head of the Survey Corps, but despite that, he seems to value the input of everyone in his unit when the situation demands it. 
Simple conversation – I know this is more than vague, but Erwin has been in the Survey Corps for more than a decade and though he isn’t much of a talker, it’s fair to say he may know almost all of his subordinates.  Maybe he is reminiscing with someone about life before the war or a mission with Keith Shadis?  Perhaps they are discussing the state of politics behind the walls?  Maybe he has to make an inspirational speech?
Daily operations – As commander, Erwin has to deal with the daily issues of commanding a military unit.  This could include requisitioning supplies, resolving conflicts between squad leaders, reviewing potential new recruits to the Survey Corps, and so on.  While many may find this hum-drum and dull, this is now his daily life.

Let’s talk Scouting Expeditions!!!

What are your ideas?

Hey! Would love to have some interaction with my commander!

  • Pranksters - Starts with Malcolm either pulling a prank and running away from the aftermath or getting caught in the middle of the prank and his commander sees it. Something harmless, but 'annoying' enough and well, then he runs into his own commander... Might devolve into Malcolm wanting to convince his Commander to 'lighten/loosen up'

  • Stable Duty/Joy Ride -  A 'daily activity' sort of thing, Malcolm likes horses so he'd often volunteer to take care of them. Perhaps even take a horse out for a 'joy' ride or just taking care of the horses in the stables... Two might end up talking about something deeper.

  • Simple Conversation? - Nothing really is simple with Malcolm though, haha. The two end up having a conversation about the past, maybe Malcolm shows his more enigmatic side and reveals his reason for joining the army and the Survey Corp, which aren't really that 'noble' of goals.

Oh my gosh, I'd love to interact with the commander!!

Here are a couple of ideas I've got for an interaction with A. Marauder.

Simple Conversation - Amanda would be drawn in by Erwin's complex nature, so she'd very much want to find an excuse to sit and have coffee with him once or twice. She'd likely want to pick his brain about why he wants to go beyond the walls, and depending on where the conversation goes and if she feels she can trust him, may open up about her experiences beyond the sanctuary of Maria's furthest border.

Dare - A drinking contest, which Amanda will most decidedly lose, leads to her confessing something she shouldn't... especially to the commander. We can talk direction if you'd like (I have a couple of secrets in mind), but I enjoy lighthearted activities that lead to angst or deeper emotional reveals.

Sorry this reply is so long in coming!

For Malcolm, definitely the prankster route! I've had threads in the past that involve Erwin walking in on awkward/complicated/humorous situations and would always be down for more!

For Amanda, I would be down for the drinking contest! There is a future thread I have planned for that purpose, but its on the back burner for now.

However, considering Erwin's personal history, I think they would definitely have a LOT to discuss on certain matters.

If either of you would like to start threads after the coming holiday please let me know, we can do more planning in DMs on discord.
