    Name: Faiz (pronounced: Faz)
    Age: 15
    Birthday: November 16
    Gender: Male
    Species: Wrath/Sloth Demon
    Category: Student
    Class: High School
    Grade: Grade 9

    Appearance Description:
    [​IMG]

    Faiz is a small boy. At 4'10", he is not only short, but also petite, soft, with not much muscle. Even his facial features are young and slightly feminine. The demon appears mostly human in build, with only a few things that give away his non-human nature. The most notable are the nubby yellow horns atop his head. He also has pointed ears, black eyes with yellow sclera, and an unnaturally ashen grey skin tone.

    Faiz's shortish black hair is usually mussed up or unkempt, like he didn't bother to comb it. He doesn't really have a clothing style, just wearing whatever's comfortable, warm, and handy. This tends to be all black clothing because he doesn't see the point in mixing up his wardrobe. Faiz will also usually be wearing gloves both to avoid temptation and prove he isn't cursing anything.

    When interacting with others, he varies between intense listening while writing down everything he hears, to daydreaming, to cranky wrapping himself in blankets, to downright antisocial. He doesn't smile often, appearing sullen even if he feels fine. Faiz's voice is slightly high-pitched for a guy, but still masculine, with a bitter edge.

    Demon form - Faiz hates his demon form and is only ever seen in it because he still lacks some control over his shifting. In this form he is a bright pink puffball, roughly 2 feet around, with four hooves and tiny imp wings. He has large blue catlike eyes, pointy tufted ears, twisting black and pink striped horns, and sharp teeth. This form is lighter than it looks being mostly "fur" similar in consistency to fibreglass insulation.

    Personality Description:
    Mostly apathetic, with an undercurrent of aggravation and annoyance, Faiz is vindictive and holds grudges, but not generally loud or explosive in his anger. He is often tired and cranky, especially during the winter, sullenly hiding himself from the world in soft fluffy blankets. It is usually hard to tell what does make him angry because he reacts to mostly everything with the same scowl and attitude of don't make me get up and do things, seeming to just take any offense without retaliation though with a bad attitude. Sometimes he even acts apologetic, giving tokens of forgiveness to people who have wronged him. In reality, Faiz has the potential to be a cold-blooded murderer, and an internal list of triggers that would make him curse someone to various degrees, though he does brush off anything outside that list. Repeated minor offenses could also build up to a desire for harsher vengeance. You should never accept his tokens.

    Laziness is also a big part of Faiz's personality. Emotionally shallow and unwilling to invest his energy into relationships with other people, what friendships he does have are never very deep. He has little issue with personal space, actually quite cuddly with people he doesn't hate. At school, work, or any activity, Faiz does as little as needed to get by, usually slowly, with a lot of daydreaming. He prefers familiarity, comfort, stability, sticking to what he likes without adventurousness or curiosity. He will use and reuse the same items for years or at least as long as possible, not wanting to bother with something new. Faz sleeps with and is touchy about his very patched up teddy bear with button eyes named Bearie. His eclectic taste in music is one of the few occasions where he shows a broader range of interest. A much better listener than talker, he enjoys watching people and writing down everything they say without actually interacting with them, though he will ask questions because it's easier than research. The only hint of ambition he has is wanting to be a court stenographer when he's older.

    Species Abilities:

    Immortal/ ageless - Stops aging in his 20s. If he dies, goes to Hell a couple weeks then comes back fully healed.

    Slow regeneration - Heals from injuries twice as slow as a normal human, but without scarring or permanent damage. Also will regenerate at a slow rate, but fatal injuries are still fatal. Would take about 6 months to regenerate a limb, longer for things like eyes and brain damage.

    Resistant to disease and infection - 1/4 as likely to catch either and only affected half as much. Doesn't feel pain from physical injuries, has to pay close attention to not accidentally injure himself. Permanently achy throughout his body, tired and chilled, with a tendency to migraines.

    Heat baby - Feels comfortably warm in weather most would consider hot (30C) and can stand hotter temperatures longer than a human would (gets uncomfortable around 50C). Can still be damaged by things like fire and scalding water. Gets cold easier, and suffers effects of cold weather quicker (15C feels like freezing).

    Supernatural hearing - could hear a pin drop in a crowded room. Loud noises trigger migraines and too many noises at once can be disorienting.

    Other form - Can shift between forms at will. Also tends to shift into demon form when tired, stressed, or angry. Fibreglass insulation fluff - can irritate skin and eyes on contact, but easily washed away. Teeth sharp enough to pierce steel. Flight - only an inch off the ground, only forwards, not very maneuverable, not into any wind stronger than a gentle breeze, about 75mph, quick acceleration, slow deceleration, not exactly tiring, but makes them feel colder and even more vulnerable to low temperature - at 25C would feel like he was freezing after an hour at top speed. Eyesight not exactly sharper but sensitive to motion, could follow a bullet's movements. This is at best distracting and can be overwhelming in rooms with a lot going on.

    Feeds off annoyance, irritation, and general crankiness - Senses and feeds within 10'. Feeding makes both Faiz and whoever he's feeding on slightly calmer and sleepy. Stronger anger and rage are somewhat overwhelming to him and will knock him out quickly if he attempts to feed off them, without affecting the target. Going without this food will make him more tired, cranky, and weak until he eventually starves. He can eat human food but it doesn't do anything for him, and foods with high sugar or caffeine make him more aggressive, bitey, and easily set off.

    Unholy - Cannot enter a church, and gets a migraine within 10' of one. Holy water and crosses burn and will not heal without magic. Can be killed permanently by holy magic and weapons. Repelled by and cannot touch any object of faith wielded by a practitioner.

    Powers:
    Poisonous curse - Can imbue an object (usually clothes or accessories, but anything works that is not already enchanted or blessed) with a curse that ranges from itches and aches at its mildest to a fatal illness at worst. This takes time both in placing the curse and in the curse being activated. At first he must hold the object in his hands and concentrate both on the degree of the curse and on his target. Then the object must be touching his skin for more time, but concentration isn't required. In total, a mild itch curse requires roughly 10 minutes to place while a fatal curse would require about 16 hours, and half the total time must be spent on concentration. After placing curse, Faiz must give the object to the target himself within 5 minutes of it leaving contact with his skin, can't get someone else to deliver it or just leave it lying around. Curse will only be activated by originally intended target, even if he changes his mind. There are no symptoms until activation. Once curse is activated by object touching victim's skin about 5 minutes, the object is no longer needed, and curse will run its course unless removed by Faiz, removed with curse removal/holy magic, or removed by dousing victim in holy water. Cannot curse the same object more than once. Cannot place more than one curse at a time or place a curse while another is activated. Each type of curse lasts a certain amount of days (itch 1, ache 2, mild 4 ... fatal 32). Fatal is 32 days of major illness followed by death. Curse is demonic magic, does not register as a physical illness, and other than the fatal illness does no lasting damage. Does not affect angels.

    Biography:
    Born of a wager between Satan and Belphegor about whether wrath or sloth was more powerful, Faiz was created with the essence of both princes and sent to MC under the guardianship of a cousin both to avoid cheating and because neither prince particularly wanted to raise a child.

    On the island, Faiz had a fairly normal childhood, as much as was possible for a tiny demon on a magical island. He attended the school once he was old enough and wasn't completely friendless, though he wasn't particularly social or well known and didn't participate much in extracurricular activities. The demon did have some troubles with general anti-demon sentiment and with being picked on mostly for his small size and his fluffy pink demon form. Though already vindictive as a child, Faiz generally took the bullying, only delivering minor curses. But one older bully would not let up, even as the demon's curses increased in strength. Then they went too far, catching him with his teddy bear, taking it, and ripping it apart. So Faiz prepared a fatal curse, taking his time to make it count. Then he gave the bully a "gift" as if to prove he was over the teddy bear. And the boy just watched and waited as the bully slowly died. It only took two days for the bully's parents to realize, and Faiz was quickly caught. He grudgingly removed the curse, but was still sent to juvie island for the attempted murder.

    After spending 3-4 years on juvie island, Faiz was released on probation, while still attending mandatory therapy. He has been back for about a month, mostly staying at home except for classes or therapy. Now he's permitted to be in more public places with certain conditions, which boil down to don't curse anyone. He's not allowed to give any tokens or gifts to people, unless they've been examined for curses. And he's not allowed to hold anything in his bare hands for more than five minutes.
