Basics:
Name: Laurent Craiton
Nicknames:
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Yes to all
Species: Shadow Demon
Age: 618
Looks: mid to late 30s

Human Appearance:
Hair: Black, on the long side of "short" and straight.  He also has a neatly trimmed mustache and beard.
Eyes: Intense with an intimidating--though sometimes disarmingly charming--piercing gaze. His deep black eyes are constantly moving and scanning the area for something interesting.
Skin: He has many battle/fight scars across his chest, abdomen, and arms. Most on his arms are faded, but the scars on his torso are deep and stand out.
Shape of Face: A bit square with a strong jawline.
Nose: On the long-side with bold lines.
Mouth: Almost always has a cruel or knowing smile.
Frame: 6' with the build of someone who frequents the gym. Most find him extremely alluring or attractive, and he walks with a powerful arrogant step.
Hands: Square and rough

Usually seen wearing: His typical outfit consists of low-riding, tight black pants or dark jeans that fit his rear quite nicely, held up with a simple leather belt. A skin-tight black or dark colored T-shirt shows off his muscular build in a subtle way, and he is usually seen wearing black combat boots that he keeps superbly clean whenever he has the opportunity. Sometimes he wears a black trench coat but Laurent prefers to show off his body.

Demonic Appearance:
Eyes: Completely black and soulless.
Horns: Glossy black, thick and twisted like ram's horns.
Wings: Dark grey bat-like wings with some tatters and rips from old fights.
Skin: Gray with the same scars seen in his human form.
Frame: Towering a few heads higher than your average human, solid build but not too hulking, he is more of an agile creature than brute strength (that isn't to say that he isn't massive).  Cloven foot, reverse-bent knees--in spite of this he stands sturdy and unmovable.

Resume:
Talents/Skills: torture, tracking people
Intelligence Level: Cunning
Current Occupation: Recruiter/trainer for a sex-trafficking ring outside of the city.  Gathering information for Chtahzus'aak.
Salary: Enough.
Awareness of Supernaturals: Demons, angels, vampires

Lifestyle
Hobbies/Pastimes: Tracking/killing people for fun, screwing anyone he feels like as violently as possible.
Likes: watching the hope/happiness drain from someone's eyes, sex, blood, violence, power, black, tracking, killing, weapons, taking advantage of those weaker than him, smoking, night, being in charge, inflicting pain and fear, fighting, knives, winning
Dislikes: weakness, disobedience, flowers, colored clothing, being snuck up on and caught off guard (no surprise parties for Laurent), when things do not go according to plan, when people refuse to submit to him, losing

Observable Behavior:
Speech Patterns:  Seductive and suggestive, or commanding and boastful
Eye Contact: Dominating
Posture: Confident
Gestures, Quirks or Eccentricities:  
Visual Habits: He is constantly looking around, scanning for danger or prey. His eyes never seem to focus on one thing (unless it's what he's chasing). Laurent has a tendency to practice throwing daggers/knives at targets when he is nervous/anxious/waiting for something.

Usually seen holding: A cigarette or knife, especially when he is anxious.

Common stance 1: Leaning up against a wall, arms crossed over his chest with a cool expression on his face. He is either looking for someone or simply taking in his surroundings, assessing the situation. Despite his expression, there is an awful lot going on inside of his mind. He is most likely formulating a plan of sorts or going through options and ways to lure in pray.
Common stance 2: Quietly crouching in an ally somewhere, watching someone he is following and trying not to be seen. When he's like this, it's easy for someone to sneak up on him because he is so focused. But don't be surprised if he tries to kill you afterward.
Common stance 3: Hands deep in his pockets, or smoking, trying to look inconspicuous and waiting for something to happen. He is extremely aware of his surroundings when he is standing like this, even though it doesn't look like he is on guard.

Personality:
Laurent is very arrogant. He is very intelligent and argumentative. He loves fighting and is a very tactful fighter. When he has his mind set on a goal he will do everything in his power to attain it. Laurent loves the thrill of the chase and will track his prey as far and as long as he has to. He thinks he is the strongest, smartest thing out there and isn't afraid to tell you. Laurent is an insensitive, superficial, greedy man and he doesn't do the whole 'mercy' thing. He's shameless and doesn't care if he is making someone uncomfortable. He's a ruthless, cruel, downright nasty jerk. He doesn't love and never has even cared enough to love. The only thing he could possibly want from a relationship is sexual pleasure.

Strongest positive personality trait: Persistent
Strongest negative personality trait: Evil

Strength
  • Laurent is very physically strong, which is quite evident in his build.
  • He is cold and calculating, always formulating very elaborate plans that typically succeed 9/10 times.
  • He is an excellent tracker with a superb sense of sight, hearing and smell.
  • Laurent is very intimidating, persistent, and manipulative, never giving up once he has a set goal in mind.
  • He has incredible focus and willpower, so much so that he can detach from things like pain to a certain degree.
  • He has a rather strong psychic ability, especially when it comes to shadow manipulation.  Laurent can also invade weaker minds, using these shadows.
  • Through possession of Mitchelletto's soul Laurent is able to access some of the disciplines that Mitchelletto has acquired--although use of these skills weakens Laurent and can leave him open.
Weakness/Flaw
  • His ego and arrogance make him an extremely disagreeable person.
  • Little control of himself when he is angry, severely impairing his judgment.
  • Short temper and the smallest thing could set him off at any given time.
  • Since he has a habit of detaching from pain in order to fight, it is difficult for him to realize when to stop.
  • Has the need to always be right.
  • Subject to obsessive behavior in order to 'win' and come out on top.
  • Has a tendency to tunnel-vision, which can leave him vulnerable.
Quirks/Interesting Facts:
  • He rarely finishes a cigarette, always smoking roughly half or two-thirds of it before discarding it.
  • Laurent hides weapons, daggers, handguns, and such on his person. (Not that he uses the guns much, they're for show more than anything)
Sense of humor: Dark.  He generally finds humor in things that should not be funny.
Temper: Explosive.

History:
(workin' on fleshing this bit out but here's an outline?)
  • Before being summoned to this plane of existence, he was a sneaky devil in hell.  His strengths lie in manipulation, getting under the skin--literally and metaphorically, and psychological torture.
  • Met up with Mitchelletto and in exchange for his soul (as well as a few nights of lust), taught him Dark Blood Sorcery.  The two have been off-and-on in contact though haven't met in person for quite some time.
  • Had dealings in the transatlantic slave trade. 
  • Is one of the higher-ups in a sex trafficking ring just outside the city.
  • Rachel was one of the girls he "recruited" under the false premise of an interview for a good paying job.
  • Rachel escaped and is currently under the protection of a vampire.  Laurent is furious and intent on reclaiming her again.
Recent History:
  • Primarily occupied with trying to reclaim Rachel--he doesn't like losing and never let anyone escape before. Now he is biding his time and lulling her into a false sense of security--he is looking forward to bringing everything crashing down around her.
  • Is gathering information for Chtahzus'aak.

Permissions Given in reasonable Roleplay:
(Yes = you don't have to ask before acting in RP, No = you ask first)
Feeding: Yes
Wounding/Cursing: Yes
Killing: Ask Jacki (Saiketsu)
