Too much time, not enough work.
« on: January 30, 2018, 01:45:44 AM »
GUSTAV VOLK
Escort to Pixis | +respectful | -stern


FRIENDS
There are plenty of benefits in friends, but Gustav struggles to make them. With most of his time dedicated to work, both in work hours and not, he spares little time to relax with anybody but those he works closely with - after all, Titans are unpredictable, and he could be needed at any time. That said, he's typically 'attracted' to befriending people with similar aims as himself, and especially those who are just as obsessed as working as he is.

ENEMIES / RIVALS
The only enemies he has are those who are enemies of the people. Rivalries are also swept away - he does his best not to have poor opinions of others as he needs to work with anybody possible. He holds little patience for people who cannot get over their personal issues and let it get in the way of their work. Similarly, he finds those who slack off or ignore their duties particularly frustrating.

ROMANCE
If it happens, it happens, but nothing will get in the way of his work. He holds 'great admiration' for people who give their all for their Regiment though - it's not a crush, he claims.

PLOTS
The King: Gustav and X work together to clear the Wall of some Titans.
The Queen: Paperwork is meant to be boring, he claims. Somebody tries to prove that wrong.
The Rook: While stationed in Krolva District, Gustav bonds with his comrades. (pre-945)
The Bishop: Strategy game bonding: chess, draughts, or card games.
The Knight: Gustav is put on 'guard duty' for a 'VIP' visitor for Pixis.
The Pawn: Confronted with somebody upset over the death of a Garrison soldier, Gustav tries to console them. « Last Edit: March 08, 2018, 09:04:09 PM by Gustav Volk »

Ah he looks great!  :) :) :D :D

Gustav and Anka would obviously know each other LOL! They spend more of their awake time together and I think they would be great work partners and decent friends as well.

I'm up for whatever when it comes to plots!

He really does look wonderful!

"Who are you again?" "I work with you... every. single. day."

Yes! So many lovely plots we could throw them into... Let's see...
Work-wise, a lot of it centers around Dot, but perhaps we could have them out patrolling the Wall, or go check up on an NPC squad in one of the Districts?
Free-time-wise... I could see Gustav tossing down a pack of cards in front of her once they've finished work for the day early, or else offer to help her with anything outside of work (I'm sure we can fit books or flowers in there somewhere).

What do you think?

LOL!

Doing something with Dot would be great. So much of their lives revolve around that man. Do you think he ever wanders off and they have to go searching for him? He'd probably be at a tavern with Ian and Mitabi lol.

He could teach Anka to play chess. It is not something she learned when she was younger.

The moment we get a played Pixis, that HAS to hopefully happen. Just all the, "Er, where did he go now?" "Sir, we have a meeting." "Anka, please tell me I'm imagining this mess..." "Let's just postpone it to tomorrow before it gets any more out of hand."

YES. And I can learn how to play as we go. I could write up a starter where he sets down a chess set in front of her and challenges her to play to escape a boring wait?

"That's it. I'm sewing bells onto all of his shirt collars."

Chess is something Anka would like to learn.

I think you touched on this, but like Anka, Gustav is maybe not the strongest combatant out there? Competent but not the best. Maybe they get into a situation where they have to try and take down a Titan?

Gustav whole-heartedly agrees with this idea and adds that they implement a way of confiscating any 'contraband' from their dear old boss.

YES. Gustav is a "sure, you get the nape, I'll cripple it first" guy - he'd much sooner put himself in danger / eliminate unnecessary danger for the other. I love the idea! A fairly 'energetic' Titan hammering on the Wall while they're patrolling perhaps?

LOL. They could try and take all his booze but he always outsmarts them...crafty old fella.

They could take the Titan out but get banged up in the process and sort of limp back to the office.

"What happened to you guys?"

"Nothing. Ow...yeah that's a bruise right there."

Gladios & Gustav

Gladios is a heavily affectionate beast of a man, new to the Trost outpost as of 846. Them both being garrison, and the fact Gladios intends on meeting all his new coworkers, they’re bound to bump into one another either intendedly or by mistake :)

Hope Gustav doesn’t mind hugging too much//

Possible ideas;

Gladios builds a lot, he’s almost always working on a new project, building bird houses around town and secretly installing them, repairing peoples homes from leaky roofs, to simple little wooden figurines. Gustav walking by and seeing Gladios on someone’s roof hammering away would make for a great first encounter,

“... you’re garrison, right?”
“Yes.”
”Does the owner of the home know that?”


Gladios has an affinity for animals, but he isn’t the brightest man on the block. How horrified would Gustav be if he came into the break room for coffee and found Gladios coddling and cradling a raccoon in his arms going, ”Pretty kitty.”?

Anka & Gustav

Oh, yes. And more yes. Catch themselves on the Wall or get caught by the Titan trying to swat them away perhaps. Whatever makes sense for it. Do you want me to go ahead and throw up a starter?

Gladios & Gustav

Hell yes. Gustav definitely isn't very huggy and, after the first hug, will probably make a point of keeping distance at a literal arm's length. XD.

ooh. A perfect first introduction - Gustav would be confused like, don't you have Wall work to do? Are we running a building firm now? Torn between telling him to get back to his actual job and 'hey this looks good for our publicity'.

Absolutely horrified, to the point of not knowing what to say, because Gladios no, that doesn't belong here! He'd want to pin up a notice saying no animals in the break room. How successful that is is another thing altogether.

Gustav and Anka

I can see them going to the all the taverns with a drawing of Pixis and just being like, "Don't serve him!" LOL!

I like the idea of them being a little caught off guard. Like they were not expecting a Titan...but oh shit look there is a Titan. Welp...guess it's on us! We can do this!

I say go ahead and start! Yippie!

Anka & Gustav

I could totally see that! "It's getting out of hand, what do we do?" "... Make everybody bar him until he can go nowhere else?"

Yessss. And the awkward, well shit, that didn't go as well as we thought. I'll throw up a starter tomorrow!

Also, once everything is more settled, hopefully we can work out what these two get up to post-Utopia (more hopefully: with a Pixis! I'm going to add him to my off-site wanted in the hope it'll get some extra more attention). Probably supervising the aftermath. Anka will have to put up with a very gloomy Gustav when the body count is given... at best. XD.

I think it will be very interesting to see a different side of Gustav.  I think that is awesome and I look forward to it. See under the mask a little.
