Arkin Holt
« on: March 15, 2018, 02:29:42 PM »

NAME:  Arkin Holt
GENDER:   Male
MEMBER GROUP:  Garrison (Cannon Team Leader)
FACE CLAIM:  Lindel from Ancient Magus Bride

Arkin is a man of average height and has a solid build. He has longish blonde hair, fair skin, and blue eyes. His face has a kind countenance to it and he tends to be smiling. Though Arkin looks youthful from a distance -  years atop the Walls in the sun and wind along with his tendency to smile have left him with visible lines around his eyes and mouth.  It’s not something he really thinks about. Most men and women in the Garrison around his age have the same weathered look.

Arkin is missing most of his left pinky and ring finger.  They were blown off during a cannon misfire a few years back. He functions fine without them but does tend to hold his left hand in a way that does not show the disfiguration.

Arkin is a friendly man with a genuine smile and kind eyes. He is a loyal soldier and a competent leader though would not, at least at this time in his life, do overly well leading more than one or two crews. Still, he is a relatively young man and has time to grow and gain more leadership skills.

He is actually very shy and will almost always try and guide the conversation away from himself and towards the person that he is talking to.  Arkin is someone who is often sought out for advice because he listens and is not inclined to be judgmental. Growing up in the Apothecary shop - he met all kinds of peoples who had all sorts of needs and hardships and he learned to be compassionate.

While it may seem odd that Arkin did not head into the medical section of the Garrison, he was found by his instructors to be of a mechanical mind and for all his issues in combat training - to have a stellar aim. So to the cannons he went. He was able to rise up to become a Team Leader with the cannon group. It took him a little while to find his feet, but his troops would now say he is a  fair leader who is always willing to pull his own weight.

~ Leadership in small to medium groups.
~ Phenomenal aim with both his cannons and with rifles.
~ Very mechanically minded/Good with hands in general.
~ Easy to talk to/Gives solid advice.
~ Has a decent amount of medical/herbal knowledge (family runs an Apothecary shop).

~ Can be timid at times. Prefers to talk about others and not himself.
~ Was weak in most academic subjects and not the strongest combatant. 3DM training was rough.
~ Does not always say what he feels.
~ Struggles to delegate at times.

~ Defend the Walls and especially protect his home. He was born and raised in Trost and his family is there.
~ Keep his troops alive if at all possible.
~ Hopefully live long enough retire. His older brother is preparing to take over his parent's shop and they have discussed Arkin joining him in (many) years.
~ Maybe find someone to settle down with. It’s hard though. No time and not wanting to leave someone bereft if anything should happen to him makes him uncertain about forming a long-term romantic relationship.

~ Death. Knows and accepts  it may happen - but he still finds the idea frightening.
~ Trost falling. It’s his home and everything and everyone he loves is there. It’s his duty to protect it.
~ Cannons failing. The cannons are his responsibility and are an intrical part in protecting humanity. Often they slow Titans down enough to give the 3DM troops a real edge. They must not fail.
~ Humanity being defeated. He fears death greatly, but he would lay his life down if need be.

Arkin was born the second son Perkin and Lyra Holt. He joined older brother Oscar and spent most of his childhood in the back room of his family’s  Apothecary shop. There he learned from his grandparents and parents all about medicinal herbs and how to formulate remedies for many common - and not so common - ailments.

Arkin learned to mix tinctures, salves, syrups and other remedies. He learned what herb was helpful with headaches and how to treat the ever common Wall Burn. He also learned about how his grandmother and mother helped girls and women who “were in trouble.”

Mr. and Mrs. Holt had a good reputation as healers and as the business was close to the Garrison HQ, many members of the largest branch of the military would frequent the shop. Arkin found himself intrigued by the men and women with roses on the jackets. When possible, he would chat with some of them and many were kind to the quiet boy with many questions.

As he got older, Arkin would watch the Garrison soldiers go about their duties on the Walls and as a peacekeeping force within on streets. After some thought and a discussion with his parents and grandparents, he was allowed to enlist. His older brother would keep the shop going and Arkin could join back into the family business if and when he retired.

Arkin struggled in most aspects of training.  He was fast but often clumsy and struggled with most classroom work. For a little while, it looked like he might wash out. However, receiving help from a few close friends and the instructors noticing that his mind was mechanical and he had very true aim meant that Arkin was able to graduate, albeit fairly low in his training group.

While Arkin had proven himself useful in caring for ill and injured cadets -  it was decided that the cannon crews needed more members and as Arkin had proven to be a fairly crack shot, he was placed where the need was the highest.

Arkin has been on the Walls for more than a decade at this point. He is now a Team Leader and has earned the respect of his men. Arkin has a soft spot for the men and women who come from the lower end of the training groups. He knows what it is like to be an underdog and will do what he can to help them get a boost up.

He also essentially runs a small Apothecary shop out of his quarters. Arkin can treat simple maladies like headaches and Wall Burn and can provide remedies for soldiers who need to not get into trouble. He’ll send them to his mother if they are already in trouble. He only charges the cost of the herbs and other materials he needs for the remedies and will do things that the medics cannot do. Arkin just wants to help.

Arkin feels like he is doing good in the world and is doing his part to protect humanity. Sometimes he wonders if there is more to it - but he is content for the most part.
