Gustav Volk
« on: January 30, 2018, 12:56:01 AM »



NAME: Gustav Volk
NICKNAMES (IF ANY): Gus
DATE OF BIRTH AND AGE (AS OF YEAR 845): 20 July 816 (29)
PLACE OF BIRTH: Krolva District, Wall Rose
GENDER: Male
MEMBER GROUP: Garrison
FACE CLAIM: Gustav, Attack on Titan


APPEARANCE: Standing at around six foot tall, he has a solid build due to a readiness to engage with Titans if he must, owing to some amount of personal training as he infrequently needs to fight. His dark brown hair is immaculately combed back, unravelling in times of great stress when he has no patience to correct it. Often appearing emotionless or grim-faced, his brown eyes are usually set in a slight natural frown.

PERSONALITY: Gustav may seem as though he is not affected by the great risks taken to defend humanity, but this is only in public, where he evaluates strategy over giving in to empathy. In private, his nights are strewn with nightmares - if he can manage to sleep. After times of great struggle, he can often be found in his room forcing himself to focus on something without emotion, such as strategy games or information pamphlets. A particular fan of chess and card games, he regards himself as a keen strategist, as he relies on this during work.

When it comes to strategies, he evaluates every risk that he can see, trying to find ways around them where possible, but ultimately knows that with success comes sacrifice. In combat, he prefers to assist others, engaging to kill only when the risk has been evaluated, or else somebody is in danger of being killed. As escort to Pixis, he carries out tasks with little complaint other than to remark on statistics, ultimately trusting his commander to make the best judgment with all resources considered. He would not describe himself as ambitious, but he wants to be where he can do the most to help, which is primarily in positions with high-ranking officers.

Quiet but firm, he chooses every word carefully, with the occasional slip when stress mounts. He respects the opinion of all who speak to him, taking in their opinion and judging it against fact and his own experience - when rejecting the opinion of another, he comes off as tactless, as he would sooner quote a number than gently disagree. Though he appears calm and dependable, his lack of emotional expressions make him harder to approach, something solidified to those who have seen him during his most devoted-to-the-cause moments where emotions seem to fail to grip him. Ultimately, he buries signs of emotional weakness.


STRENGTHS:
+ astute
+ honest
+ industrious
+ methodical
+ respectful
+ strategic

WEAKNESSES:
- dogmatic

ASPIRATIONS:

FEARS:
- being responsible for high death counts
- others dying for his sake

HISTORY:

Gustav had a rather bland childhood - the oldest of three, he did what he could to relieve the stress from his parents, taking on more chores than he could handle, often with disastrous effects that he then learned from. He struggled in caring for his siblings, much preferring to handle tasks that were repetitive or served some purpose in looking after them without actually interacting with them, such as housekeeping.

The decision to enlist in the military was taken carefully. His siblings were old enough to take over the majority of chores, and he was, in the eyes of his father, already well-suited to the military with his demeanour. So off he went, a boy who struggled to connect to those he trained with, who would sooner pick up somebody's slacking off during duties than watch them fail at doing it. He thought he would be a great cadet, starting off with some arrogance as he could handle himself well and didn't panic or slip up frequently at first, though as time went on he became more humble, realising that he was no prodigy.

On graduating, he chose to go with the Garrison. He felt too scared of dying to join the Scouts, and he was nowhere near the best students of their intake. Stationed at first in his home district, he found solace in strategies, and routine operations. When it came to dealing with the odd few Titans scratching too much at the Wall, he did best in assists, or else pointing out the best way of dealing with them.

Eventually, he was picked to be escort to Dot Pixis, something that proved to himself that he was worth being a soldier. Even if he had not been brave enough to actively fight for humanity, he could still assist in the war from a position of worth - being able to communicate with Pixis and other top officers of the Garrison to cover every possible risk.
