a social competition
« on: January 13, 2020, 03:39:02 PM »
Cain Häusler
fourteen years old cadet

Cain got no interests to make friends, he had enough. His last relationship didn't end well, and  making new friends is one of his biggest fears, fear to lose someone you loved. He wouldn't get into pointless conversation, he will speak up only if he feels it needed. Cain likes to ignore peoples, it is a usual thing for people around him. The most possible way to get closer to Cain is to be his partner, whether it's a training partner, fighting partner, and so on. However, there might be some way to be Cain's friend, you just have to try some unique friendship tricks and see if the result are good.

This is where his coldness acts, think of a cold-hearted person. He rarely judge other people, he rarely dislike other poeple. He just become hasty when it comes to other people. Despite his grumpy face, it's hard to make this kid angry. If you hit him once, he will hit you once, but you can tell that he's not angry. He will only get angry when someone is too excessive towards him, for sure he won't stay still if you hit him multiple times.

I think you will know the answer if you read throughout the two point above, he never been in a romantic relationship before. He never seen a girl that he like, a girl that he adore, never. It will be a magical moment when finally Cain hits a girl. Or maybe you girls got the trick?

+ He is pretty weak in hand-to-hand combat, maybe someone wanna teach him how to fight properly?
+ He spends most of his time in the barracks' stable, giving care to the horses. Do you think he'll like you if you like horses too?
+ Show me your way to be friend with Cain, and he will show you the results!
+ Cain is pretty hard to be baited and startled, do you think you can make him angry?

hope he get some new friends:)

Cain & Axel
Axel likes people well enough, though socialisation with people his age is not his strong point. He knows a decent amount of fighting techniques before training, and he'd be down for helping teach Cain at some point, either in the first or second year, whenever works for Cain's development! He's not so good with horses early on, so possibly they could help one another and swap skills?

Cain & Axel
It's a great idea to start to be honest! But it'll make no sense if Cain came up to Axel and say hello, right? It must be Axel to start his connection with Cain, otherwise it wouldn't happen. Axel could teach Cain some fighting techniques, but first, Axel needs to impress Cain first, how can Cain trust Axel that he can fight? For the timeline, I prefer to pick first year, I wanna develop Cain from the bottom, when he don't have anyone beside him.

Cain & Axel
That definitely makes sense! We can also have an NPC instructor pair them together for some hand-to-hand in summer 845 (pretty early on in training) and they can practice a set manoeuvre. Then we can see how they interact from there - Axel will definitely give him tips unasked if he's doing poorly. I'm happy to start unless you'd rather give it a shot!

Great! that would be perfect, you may start since I don't have any idea how to start a thread, gotta learn first ;).

I have a couple of mine that I can throw at you! <3

Miranda & Cain
Miranda is my 'tough-love' Instructor of Ballistics and Firearms, and unfortunately is the type to consider the difficult cadets as special challenges -- she likes for everyone to reach their full potential! She'd do obvious things like deliberately pair Cain up with someone he may not like, as well as less obvious, one-on-one things like try to get him to open up and try to offer guidance. If he got into an altercation with another cadet, she'd offer discipline but also try to use that as a teaching method and a way to know more about him.

Mercedes & Cain
You could call 'Cee my main. She and Cain immediately have some potential in that they're both 'horse people' -- she's an accomplished rider and her family were traditionally breeders -- and she would happily be one of the ones to help him with hand-to-hand combat. His gruffness wouldn't faze her unless he was really stubborn about it: while she has her own goals, she's keen for team cohesiveness and for everyone to pull their weight. She tends to let loners do their own thing rather than press for friendship, so training together would likely be their way in!

Cain & Miranda
That'd be great if Miranda is interested to train Cain to reach his full potential, but she will encounter some difficulties at early meetings. Cain is pretty respectful to his trainer nor instructors, but it happens if they train him the right way. Communication would be a challenge here, Cain isn't a talkative person. Pairing him with another cadet seems like a pointless idea, he finds it pretty useless to train with weak people, he prefer to train only with experts. However, you can try many unique ways to get deeper at his personality.

Cain & Mercedes
Oh boy! you've found his secret weakness. Horses is his favorite thing in his life, for now, he wouldn't ignore people that talk about horse. Also, a horse rider? Cain would definitely take her on ride! or maybe a horse race? He believes that he's the best horse-rider in the world. Training together seems to be a great way to build relationship, but if you do this before they ride together, it would be hard to communicate with him. But yeah show me your way!

Cain & Miranda
Miranda is well-versed in different teaching methods but I'm happy for her to still find Cain difficult; his degree of respect for her will determine her level of frustration with him, haha. Also, she would probably deliberately pair him with someone weaker to try to help him grow in that way (because sometimes patience and tolerance are the things you have to learn), but it definitely wouldn't be all the time, like you say! I also headcanon that her grandson is blond and a little rough-and-tumble, so perhaps she wonders sometimes if he'll grow up to be like Cain. What color are Cain's eyes, by the by?

Cain & Mercedes

A horse race could be fun if they can make the opportunity! I'd suggest the Horsemanship Aptitude Test but unfortunately 'Cee already has a partner for that. This being said, she's also the type to just follow a whim on the odd occasion, even if it's against the rules, so maybe there's a little mischief there and after stable duty she suggests they take a couple of the horses to have a secret race? I agree that maybe the ride should happen before another thread otherwise we may end up hitting a wall in a training thread!

All thoughts more than welcome! <3 « Last Edit: January 16, 2020, 02:09:10 AM by HiddenBaroness »
