    Post by Garret Hyde on Wed Jun 27, 2012 8:58 pm

    Basic Information
    Name: Garret Hyde
    --Nickname: Trade
    ---Special Title: Not Ranked
    Gender: Male
    Visual Age: Late teens to early twenties
    Actual Age: 20
    Personality: Garret Hyde is said to be obnoxious, many people get tired of his constant sarcasm and joking. He only wishes they weren't so up tight, life is far too short to be so serious all the time. It is also too short to be poor and hungry. Garret will normally make stupid jokes about a situation or about himself. He is also a natural flirt, if it has a pulse and looks good t him he'll hit on it. Some women think it's shallow but it is part of his charm and by the end of the night they don't seem to mind. Though underneath his Jester-like shell he is a caring person who will fight tooth and nail for someone he thinks deserves a chance.

    In a fight Garret doesn't believe in a "fair" fight only surviving. He wont take a life unless it wass completely necessary but he isn't afraid to end a person's journey in this world. He uses the terrain to his advantage with any and all possible ways to win.

    When he is alone he spends a good deal of time thinking and training and working on side projects he feels might help him out someday. He still keeps his Jester-like attitude and tends to mutter to himself about things and laugh if he thinks they're funny.
    Appearance:

    Hyde is a somewhat tan skined young man, standing an even 5'10" and 155 pounds he isn't the tallest guy but he makes due with what he has. He has long chestnut brown hair he keeps in a braid that reaches just above the middle of his back with bangs that frame his face rather well allowing his light violet colored eyes to stand out. Around his neck is a circular pendant with a piece of rope run through it keeping it around his neck at all time. On the pendant is the image of a Harlequin's mask. The origin of this trinket is unknown to him, he has simply had it with him always.

    He tends to wear a white short sleeve shirt with a black long sleeve over shirt with the sleeve folded up onto his biceps. A pair of black pants and black soft bottom padded boots for running more silently and better comfort. He sometimes wears a pair of goggles with tinted lenses around his neck.

    When he dresses for a fancy shindig he wears a basic black tuxedo but with a few extra pockets for stashing his tools of the trade. In the bottom of his tuxedo shoes is a hallowed out heel that he hides a piece of clay to make a mold of something out of.

    Character Background
    History: Born two decades ago in the wealthy section of republic city, Garret was the son of a Firebender and a Waterbender, both had become traders in their youth and had fought against each other for the better price for their wears. They both worked in the metal industry. Garret's mother was originally married to the Smithy she worked with till she met Garret's father. They constantly battled over whose wares were superiour till one day they all merged their wares and made even better items. A few years later and his parents had ended up sneaking around the Smithy's back to see each other. Knowing what would happen if they were caught, Garret's mother tried to end it but his father was against it. He told her he didn't care if he had to tell the Smithy about his feelings for his wife he wanted to be with her.

    After many talks she convinced him to stop trying for her. He reluctantly agreed but told her he would never be with another woman. Another couple years passed and the Smithy grew distant from his wife and eventually left her for a younger woman. In the divorce she and Garret's father were given a third of the company each. They began their relationship soon after the Smithy left and were married a year later. Nine months later Garret was born. His skin like that of his mother and his eyes a mix of her's and his father's. They lived in luxery till Garret was two, that year the Triple Threat Triads tried extorting them and in an attempt to protect their family they fought back only to be slain by a Earthbender. Knowing that the now orphaned child was the sole heir to the fortune they took him and preceeded to raise him till they could use him to get the money.

    So Garret Hyde grew up in the streets of Republic City in the shadow of the Triple Threat Triads not in the gang but there for their disposal. They trained him in all the different tools he would use for any and all crimes they would do. He showed signs of being a bender but there was no deffinite manifestation of his abilities. It was there though, he showed signs but it seemed as if it was blocked some how. Once at the age of sixteen the Triads tried to finally cash in on their "investment" but were prevented by Garret fending off the Triad members, even though he couldn't bend he had picked up a little Chi Blocking and used it against them to escape.

    He faked his death and changed his name to Garret Hyde. He has been living the passed four years using his skills he learned from them to get what he wanted. Never to wiser to who his parents were or who he really was.

    Code of Approval: "Code of approval: I will follow the rules or be Equalized."

    RP Sample: Day break was no time to rest he didn't have much time before they would find him. He made a big mistake trying to break in on his own, he cursed his pride and his left shoulder. The skin was a dark red turning a greusome shade of purple-black, it was still smoldering he could feel it pulsating. The pain was gone, the nerves were obviously already dead. The compound was swarming with them: Earthbenders, Firebenders, and Waterbenders, all out for blood. His blood.

    Trade peered around the crate he crounched behind fighting off the want to grab his shoulder, he knew it wouldn't help it and he would need his good hand if things went even further south. Pulling back behind the crate Trade closed his eyes, scanning the image of the compound map in his mind. Two more lefts, one straight corridor about thirty meters then turn left once more and he would be out of there. Though it was a short distance for him he knew it wouldn't be so easy to escape with the armor clad motion sensors. If he was going to get by them he would need another distraction, another explosion.

    Openning his eyes he peaked over the crate only to duck back down as Bender looked in his direction. Keeping his breathing under control he waited till he was closer before he made any moves. He could hear the heels of the Bender getting closer and closer. He didn't have to strength to fight every Bender and being a Bender that can't bend didn't help. Looking at the crate he hid behind he felt a grin tug at his lips. Reaching into his tuxedo's left breast pocket he pulled out a small vial halfed in the middle of it, each half holding a different color liquid.

    As the Bender got close enough Trade shot to his left and smashed the vialed against the crate. The Bender saw the movement and turned to roast his turducken but was stopped short by a cloud of smoke engulfing him clouding his mind and his senses. A moment later the Triad Bender hit the floor unconcious. One down, five hundred and fifty-four to go.

    o.o so do you want us to pick what his element is? He seems like a Firebender.

    No not exactly.
    My idea for him is to have connecting with an element but is unable to tap into it enough to actually bend.
    I just can't make up my mind which element and which affinity. I want them to conflict making it more difficult for him if he tries to tap into it. I may make him a waterbender with fire affinity. I'm just unsure as of yet. Which is why it's how it is up there.
