Both of my old rps with this died, unfortunately, so yeah

Warning!!
Deals with dark themes. TW for mention of self-harm and suicide

Little bit of a different rp, since there SO many romance ones, (which is fine!), and tbh I want something new.
…I hope I'm not the only one here who would die for the "grizzled old traumatized character ends up adopting the young ray of starshine" trope. Joel and Ellie from the first Last of Us, anyone?
As usual, when starting these more out-there ideas, I have no idea if I'll be getting any interest or not, but hey, worth a shot

NOW.
in my own version of this, there are several options we could traverse.
Since I call being old trauma-man, your character can be any age under this sun (except anything past teens. 19's stretching it). Like, we could meet when your character's a baby. Or when they're 17. Or anywhere in between. My preference is a little older, since it's gonna hurt my little heart if I have to write about an old man being mean to a young child because he's fighting his own fatherly instincts.
But, up to you!
Also, my character is not going to be an oc of mine, I'm stealing him from the Doom world, but whatever, I love him regardless. Just lettin ya know.

Rules:
First come first serve
I may ask for a writing example if we haven't rp'd before
May contain some pretty dark themes
Do not be rude please

Please keep your replies a little longer. Doesn't have to be more than 3 lines, but wherever you can, try to stay above 1.
If either one of us doesn't reply for four days with no warning, please bump/be aware that I will bump. I occasionally think I've replied to a thing when in reality I have not.

Will post if I get any interest.

@Oakiin

(sure thing! ^^)

Aight, here's my guy! :D
Character's name: Arlath
Character's age: 48
Gender: Male
Personality: Arlath is kind, if subdued. He doesn't talk too much, and seems distant. He'll be friendly, but on a superficial level, and really doesn't want any sort of close relationships. He does not talk about whatever happened to him, but it's clear he's been through some stuff. The more he's push, the more terse he gets
Physical Description: I can actually just post a pic, I mean…He's from a game xD https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/doom/images/c/c4/Tumblr_94ea282ee7c10a32a3b017405ec899c8_b22579dc_400.png/revision/latest?cb=20200424222051
He's got a scar running through his right eye, blinding it.
Brief Backstory: He was a warrior, fighting for his country in some war. He won't say more than that.
Other: His hammer doesn't have the red parts most the time. Usually it's deactivated. Also, it's name is Exhunt. He carries with him a small leather bag, though he never shares whatever's inside it.

@Rainy_is_back

Character's name: Arla Nixton
Character's age: 10(?)
Gender: Female
Personality: Arla is super bubbly. There's no other way to say it. She's super sweet, and willing to lend a hand. But she's also kind of… a goody-two-shoes. Or a teacher's pet, in a way. She doesn't mean to, but she tries to kiss up to the adults in her life, or even her own friends. Though she's not a snob about it- erm… most of the time.
Physical Description: Arla has the prettiest blue-bell eyes. They're definitely one of her most noticed features, above anything else; being a deep ocean blue color, brightening up when she smiles. Her skin is pretty naturally a peachy tan, giving her blonde hair a more pale color to it. When she leaves it down, her hair brushes right past her shoulder blades. But normally she would have her thick mess pulled back into a braid or some sort of pony-tail. Even as a kid, Arla was always pretty tall; currently at the age of ten, she's about 5'2'' and roughly 100 pounds. I'm going to be working on a drawing of her, sometime soon. If you want to see.
Brief Backstory: To keep it simple, Arla's parents just didn't want her when she was born. Her mother didn't want a child, and her father felt unprepared to be one. So they gave her off to an orphanage. She lived there for most of her life, not really knowing there was much else in life. She just assumed she was born that way, and this was how life worked. She's definitely obliviously naive.
Other: She has a slight accent. Though it's most unidentifiable. She doesn't really share where she came from, mostly because she doesn't know/remember. Though it sounds similar to a toned down Irish accent, or possibly South-African.

@Oakiin

(I. LOVE her!!!! And if you do draw her, PLEASE share, I would love to see her!! :D :D
@Frausty-The-Snowman YES PLEASE! :D I can set up a new thread, or you can copy paste, whatever you prefer! ^^)

@Oakiin

(Either or! ^^ Let's maybe do pms, if you're cool w/ that? I've never done that way before, I'd love to see how it compares ^^)

@Oakiin

(Ahh, I'm glad! I haven't gotten to use her yet, so this should be fun :3)

(I'm super hyped! :D I'll get a starter up here soon, or if you have an idea of how you wanna start it, tbh you can post a starter ^^)

(If my brain weren't so completely dead, I would seriously offer. If nothing is up in a little bit, I might try then. But honestly, I got nothing right now :P)

(Aha that's okay, I feel ya xD One of us will get something up by the end of the day! My character is not human, in case I didn't give you that heads up, so we can def be on earth, he just is lost and confused about it xD)
