@Graviloquence Aaaaa edited again, and now I'm gonna go to sleep because I'm tired!

We both know I'm not going to, and that I'm just lay on the bed and watch YouTube videos for an hour.
@Leidenschaft Hmmm, I'll let that pun slide. For now.

Anyways, fixed the stuff you guys told me to (or at least I hope I have), edited it on the sheet.

@Graviloquence I think I mentioned all of that on the Personality thingy, but still added a bit more.

:^).
Alrighty-do, I'll edit those things when I have time! Also, I just used that "anime pic" because it was the only one that didn't look edgy.

Legit every full beard pic I was looking for had a super muscular man/lumberjack on it.

And yeah, the "oh I killed someone gotta flee whooo" was a bad reason, I guess I'll just make him leave Spain cuz of the rumors and stuff.

When both of his parents died, his grandma and aunt took care of him, forgot to freaking write that >:^(.

Uh, the equipment was a bit random at first, didn't really give it much thought since it's like, 40 years into the future.

YES THAT "Onboard" THING WAS AN INTENDED PUN.
ADMIT IT.@Leidenschaft

Oh, I just saw the "throat cancer" thingy, and I meant larynx cancer, my bad.

I hope I didn't make a bad impression :c.



Basic Information

Name: Óscar Guijarro.
Nicknames: Beardy, Poleo.
Gender: Male.
Age: 34.
Ethnicity: Caucasian/Latino.
Nationality: Born in Sweden, spent most of his life in Spain.
Occupation: Retired bounty hunter, now security officer.

Appearance

Physique:

Óscar is simple at first sight, his body being that of an average male of his age, but it seems that he takes care of his health and body, shown by is slightly muscular body: Nothing too crazy, but he's fit. He seems to be a fan of numerous video games and comics, which is shown, once again, by his shirts. Guijarro also dons a full beard, complete with black, slightly long hair that he takes care of, sometimes putting it softly under the hood of his...well, hoody. His eyes are brown, which aren't really special or anything, but he, at certain times, seems to have some sort of twitch on the left one, the causes are unknown, more than likely accumulated stress of some sort. He has baggy eyes, possibly related to his unscheduled sleeping time and/or insomnia.

Height: 1,89 Metres.

Weight: 62 kgs.

Hair: Black pompadour.

Eyes: Brown.

Skin: Slightly tanned.

Scars / Markings / Etc: Tattoo on the lower arm, representing a snake engulfing the planet Earth.

Clothing Description:

He tends to wear dark, baggy clothing, tending to choose black amongst all other colors. He usually prefers to wear hoodies, sneakers and baggy jeans, but if on-duty, he'd wear the generic attire a security officer would wear on the IRV Howard. Apart from that, Guijarro, when off duty, usually likes to cover his hair with a tuque when he hasn't brushed his hair: He takes it really, really seriously. The tuque would read "I WOKE UP LIKE THIS", with golden letters on the front.

Inventory

  • He carries around the basic security guard equipment of the IRV Howard: A retractable baton, a taser and some pepper-spray.
  • He'd also carry around a walkie-talkie, again, normal officer stuff for when he's on-duty.
  • A basic swiss army knife, which is an old present of a family member, given to him around the age of 20 or so.

Identity

Personality:

He isn't the smartest guy in the world, that's for sure. He also isn't the most kind-hearted person either, seemingly taking care of his own before others and more than once running away from a situation, but once you get to know him, you can see that there is more that catches the eye. If you take care of him, he will take care of you. He's a believer of the status-quo and the karma, meaning that if you do something to him, he will do exactly the same to you, good or bad. Since stuff happened while he was a child, Óscar feels the need of love: Not just sexual love, but friendship and overall care. Most of the time you can find him listening to music, trying to zone himself out of the world, so he doesn't think about anything and just...be there. If he finds someone that needs him, he'll be there for them, but most of the time they don't return the favor, sending him into a spiral of sadness and drinking, thinking that nothing in the world would change if he wasn't here. He tends to hide under humor, most of the time being unfunny and/or offensive, but getting the job done and making him look like a normal unemotional idiot. Also, his movements are sudden and really... "special", often making use of his hands while talking to give them more emphasis.

Aside from that, he has different points of view about the world depending on his mood. Usually, he is a happy-go lucky individual that trusts people easily and is happy to help whoever needs it. But, when Óscar is going through a rough time or is just sad/angry, his manner of viewing the world around him turns really, really objectical. In that state, he views everything by facts and not emotions. Save a friend or someone that can give him something? Leave people to their death just so he can run away, or risk his own life for strangers? Although these are really extreme examples, Óscar can really, really go into them if his psyche gets turned around by things that happen.
Strengths:

- Tends to stay focused in dangerous situations.
- Very calm, down to Earth kind of person.
- Rarely will argue with other people, preferring to take the most diplomatic approach possible.

Weaknesses:

- When angered, he tends to insult/argue/fight with everyone else, later being filled with regret for a long time.
- Not the bravest guy around, staying behind and rarely risking himself for something that someone else can do.
- Gets really, really emotionally attached to people really fast.

Likes:

- He's a nerd, that's obvious. He may appear hipster at some degree, but the old cultures and history of the world really appasionates him. Guijarro hasn't studied none of that, of course, but he does know some interesting things here and there.
- Even though he may look rough on the outside, inside he's just a guy that likes normal (even cute) stuff. A cold night, watching TV near the fireplace with someone you love by his side: It's those kinds of things that make Óscar wish he had tried to go back with that girl on his younger years, it's those kinds of things that make him regret some decisions in life.

Dislikes:

- Overall, Óscar hates agressive people. He gets that sometimes you have to be pushy, or even threaten people to make them do better choices in life, but when you can talk things out and just calmly see the facts, why even bother with physical or psychological violence?

Fears:

- He is scared of not being loved. We live only to experience things, and love is one of the most important things in our lives, so, if no one cares about him: Why continue on living? If someone really, really appreciates you, they will at least think about how you're doing at times, remember you. He doesn't want to be forgotten in time, he wants to be remembered.

- Besides that, Óscar is also invaded by the fear of failing at something or letting down someone. As I've said before, people that care about you will remember you, and if you have let them down and are seen as a fraud or an useless piece of garbage: What good is it then?

- And, as all humans should have, he also fears losing someone. He has already lost many people during his earlier years, so, he should have adapted...right? No, humans are social animals by default, and if someone you have created a bond with goes away, then it hurts. And not only that, but the matter is only worse if the reason that they are gone is caused by your actions, or, yourself as a person.
Biography


He was born in Sweden, 2023. His mother was Swedish and his father Spanish, so the cultural exchange between the two helped him to start talking two languages at an early age. In 2029, when he was only 6 years old, his family moved back to Madrid (Spain), so his father could show him what was Spain like. On his 7th birthday, he got his first handheld video game console, and he became an addict to it, playing it nonstop and usually replaying the same games over and over, feeling that this was an unlimited source of fun. They didn't live in the best neighborhood of the city, numerous cases of vandalism and overall violence ran through the city, but he didn't experience anything.

When he was 8 years old, his mother experienced a very painful headache while having a family dinner: 3 days later she was dead, a very tiny vein on her brain had exploded and left her in a catatonic state, so the doctors had no reason to not unplug her. When his father told him, he felt a hammer on his heart, thinking how could this happen to him. On the next months, his father contracted larynx cancer, which was literally eating him from the inside: Even with his vocal cords removed, it wouldn't stop. Óscar had to see his father getting weaker and weaker each day, the hole in his throat getting bloodier and bigger, not stopping, until it happened: At 3 am, on his summer break, he woke up to find the dead corpse of his father on the bed, entirely covered in blood as he could only associate it to another vein being broken, this time the one on the neck, connecting to the brain. He was only 15 at that time.

After that, his father's mother and brother started to take care of him. He had to change home and meet new people, but, this was a refreshing change. His social life became better, opening up to more and more people and even meeting some interesting gals along the way, one which we'll call "Sarla" left a special place in young Óscar's heart after they broke up. He was far too young to truly understand the real meaning of love, but, could that be his other half? Could Sarla be the one to spend his whole life with? He'd never know, as they lost contact of each other shortly after.

With his legal age coming soon, he experienced what in Spain call an "Epifanía", which is realizing what was his purpose in life. He knew he wanted to be an actor. Óscar finished his obligatory studies and slowly started to make his way up in theaters and small cafés, in which he sang and played the guitar, to entertain the public and earn some extra money. He only starred in classical Spanish plays, such as "Don Quijote de la Mancha", "Don Juan Tenorio" and so on. But life wasn't going to put it easy for him: In 2043, when he was 20 years old, his fame started to decrease as another actor, jealous of his fame, started to spread false rumors. He didn't get called by any more companies to play in theaters, his friends left him alone thinking that he was some kind of pervert after hearing the rumors. One night, while exiting one of the bars in Vallekas (His neighborhood), the failed actor saw the man who ruined his career, his life. Drunk and mad with anger, Óscar started to follow the man to his own home, in which he confronted him. They started to argue, reaching the point of physical violence, starting to swing his fists at the man before realizing that he committed fatal mistake: Letting his nerves get the best of him. He quickly retracted his acussations and traveled far away from the rumours and his non-existant family.

Fast forward 7 years, the Óscar from before was dead, there was just a broken man, which was caused by the grief and anger of all the problems life had thrown at him for all of time. After the incident with Manuel Sardana, Óscar left Spain, flying to Texas, the place he thought that was the safest for a man that had lost everything. There, he tried to make a living by becoming a bounty hunter: Receiving training in small firearms and already improving his Karate and Judo skills from when he was young. He gained some fame, starting to even accept jobs for dangerous criminals, slowly making himself a respected man that went by the alias of Beardy.

Fast forward yet another 7 years, now a 34-year-old Óscar that has been going around countries for the length of his career as a bounty hunter. He retires, after some time, due to the travels slowly making him less and less sociable, not really being able to make any attachments because of his now old job. To take advantage of the situation, make use of his experience and participate in what he saw as an adventure, he signed in to try to join the expedition into the Mariana Trench. With his years of experience, training, and capabilities, he was accepted to maintain the security in the IRV.

This is not going to go as he planned since the beginning.

(I'll edit the relationships once we get to know each other.)
>Future
>Lovecraft
Oh man, if this had Cyberpunk elements, I would be screaming by now, but still, I'll check it out and more than likely, make an app!
Ya, ya, sounds good to me. I'll eagerly wait for this to develop, already got a few ideas on my mind. Also, will this be set in like, DnD medieval era? With blunderbusses and so on or a totally original period?
No Orcs though? Or other beast-like creatures? Those'd be fun to play. Or maybe just not "beautiful" and "attuned" humans, maybe savages ones.

Just giving away some ideas, I find this quite interesting.
B U M P


Name: Óscar Guijarro.

Age: 29 years old.

Sex: Male.

Origin: Born in Sweden, lived most of his life in Spain, moved to Hong-Kong shortly afterward.

Appearance: Óscar is simple at first sight, his body being that of an average male of his age, but it seems that he takes care of his health and body, shown by is slightly muscular body: Nothing too crazy, but he's fit. Except when he removes his clothing, revealing that both of his arms are indeed augmented, totally deprived of biological mass and exclusively cybernetic. He tends to wear dark, baggy clothing, choosing black amongst all other colors. He also seems to be a fan of numerous video games and comics, which is shown by his shirts. He also dons a full beard, complete with a black pompadour that he takes care of, sometimes putting it softly under the protection of his hoody. His right eye is brown, the left one being of an almost pitch-black red, sometimes having some sort of "tick" on the left one, caused by yet another augmentation, more than likely related to some sort of accident. He has baggy eyes, possibly related to his unscheduled sleeping time and/or insomnia.

Nickname/Handle: Stoned or Ohm.

Psychological Analysis: He isn't the smartest guy in the world, that's for sure. He also isn't the most kind-hearted person either, seemingly taking care of his own before others and more than once running away from a situation, but once you get to know him, you can see that there is more that catches the eye. If you take care of him, he will take care of you. He's a believer of the status-quo and the karma, meaning that if you do something to him, he will do exactly the same to you, good or bad. Since stuff happened while he was a child, Óscar feels the need of love: Not just sexual love, but friendship and overall care. Most of the time you can find him listening to music, trying to get away from everything, so he doesn't think about anything and just be there. If he finds someone that needs him, he'll be there for them, but most of the time they don't return the favor, sending him into a spiral of sadness and drinking, thinking that nothing in the world would change if he wasn't here. He tends to hide under humor, most of the time being unfunny and/or offensive, but getting the job done and making him look like a normal unemotional idiot. Also, his movements are sudden and really... "special", often making use of his hands while talking to give them more emphasis; this also affects his overall actions, such as singing while walking on the street, dancing to a song without actually knowing how to dance, etc...

Personal Record: He was born in Sweden, 2128. His mother was Swedish and his father Spanish, so the cultural exchange between the two helped him to start talking two languages at an early age. In 2131, when he was only 3 years old, his family moved back to Madrid, so his father could show him what was Spain like. On his 5th birthday, he got his first video game handheld console, and he became an "addict" to it, playing it nonstop and usually replaying the same games over and over, feeling that this was an unlimited source of fun. They didn't live in the best neighborhood of the city, numerous cases of vandalism and overall violence ran through the city, but he didn't experience anything out of the ordinary life of a happy, happy boy.

When he was 8 years old, his mother experienced a very painful headache while having a family dinner: 3 days later she was dead, a very tiny vein on her brain had exploded and left her in a catatonic state, so the doctors had no reason to not unplug her. When his father told him, he of course cried, but he was far too young to understand the true consequences of his mother's death. On the next few months, his father contracted throat cancer, which was literally eating him from the inside: Even with his vocal cords removed, it wouldn't stop. Óscar saw his father getting weaker and weaker each day, the hole in his throat getting bloodier and bigger each day, until it happened: At 3 am, on his summer break, he woke up to find the dead corpse of his father on the bed, entirely covered in blood as he could only associate it to another vein that broke, this time the one on the neck, connecting to the brain. He was only 12 at that time.

Afterwards, he went to live with his uncle and grandmother, in yet another neighborhood and another school. Shortly after graduating, around 2147. Being old enough to live alone, he decided to retreat to the exotic yet dangerous and unknown parts of Asia, most specifically: Hong-Kong. After barely having enough money to rent a place to live in, he stayed there for around 5 years, training his Chinese and doing common and legal jobs, for the time being. After a while, the factory he had been working on was raided by some sort of terrorist group, which demanded that the workers united to their cause to take the "Throne" of the company as if it was a kingdom or something. Óscar knew these guys were just psychos and didn't mind them, and indeed they were psychos: Armed psychos. After their demands weren't fulfilled, they decided that the best course of action was blowing the factory to pieces, with fucking everyone inside. The Spaniard heard the explosions and the yells, and when he attempted to escape, everything went black.

Fast forward six months, to the HKSH (Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital), where Óscar had been taken care of until he was fully recovered. He was in shock, as he realized that the attack had made both of his arms useless: The nerves and most of the muscle destroyed as well as his left eye, which had been hit by some shrapnel that the explosion caused. Although he didn't have much money, due to his low-salary job, he did make some friends back in the streets, shady friends. They helped him pay for the hospital bill and even some official augmentations, to make up for what he had lost, but it all had a price: Work for them. Shortly afterwards, Óscar was greeted in a luxury restaurant by a man named Juo-Shing, which was the leader of the so-called "Shinahu" clan, a branch of the Triads that took care of most of the menial work: Take thing to X place, maybe take care that X establishment doesn't get robbed...or even rob X establishment yourself. He had no choice but to accept, slowly learning the insides of the "Underworld" as he slowly ranked up in the clan, getting the alias of "Stoned" due to his surname being "Guijarro", which in Spanish is a type of rock.

Years passed and the clan slowly dispersed, a new corporation taking most of the members as it had a more "official" manner of doing things, alongside better security and recognition. Óscar couldn't abandon the clan, so he had to wait until it died off. And he waited. And waited. And boy, did he wait, until finally the leader himself gave him his part of the deal and was finally free to join the Maverick's group. Since they already had a bunch of thugs running around doing jobs, he had to go into the most "technical" part of the job, controlling the security of the quite expensive tech that the group had alongside getting taught how to do the basic hacking routines: One can't be sure about anything when it comes to gangs with online networks. After some time, a co-worker of his', Tommy DeGarro sent him quite an unusual message: Óscar, being the man that he is, couldn't pass out an opportunity to help out a friend in need, specially if it meant getting away from the menial routine and with cash at the end: A lot of cash.

Equipment: Óscar wields augmentations on both of his arms, no longer having any kind of biological mass on them and being literally entirely mechanical. He isn't a ranged fighter, fuck, he hates guns, and that is why he always prefers to go into close quarters combat to attempt and subdue the opponent in the fastest way possible, that is, without killing, and that is why he sometimes wields an "electrified brass knuckles": Basically, brass knuckles that he has tinkered with to give electric discharges, not very effective against armored or covered target, but holy crap does it hurt.
He also has lost his left eye, which is now replaced by yet another cybernetic augmentation. With enough tinkering and mechanical knowledge, it can be upgraded to allow him to have better vision or reflexes but, as of now, it's just a regular eye.
But made of metal.
And electronics.
And it glows.
