Full Character Name: Ali ibn Helios
Character Nickname: Helios, the Crimson Reaper
Age / Date of Birth: 27/ November 18th
Class / Job: Ali works odd jobs as a cover-up, but his main talent lies in treasure hunting. He prefers working in taverns because drunk people talk-and the more they talk, the more he can learn where his nearest treasure is to be found.
Gender: Male
Relatives: Younger half brother, deceased in a sacrificial offering. Parents killed in a civil war a decade ago, father killed by Ali himself, as they were on opposing sides. Ali loved his father, but he felt that his ideals were more important at the time-something he has come to regret. His only living relative is a twin sister who was sent away to the West for schooling before the war, and hasn't returned yet. Helios hopes to find her someday because when they were younger, they were inseparable. His family was famous for being small yet powerful, therefore he has no cousins or other extended family.
Height / Weight: 5'10" 155lbs
Other Physical Attributes / Appearances: Ali has a long scar that runs through his left eye-the only sign of his lethal fight with his father a decade before. His hair is brown and shaggy, as he doesn't often have the time to wash himself, nor does he care. He wears a long chain made of shark's teeth. His one good eye appears to be dead because of it's steel grey color, but in reality he can see quite well. Helios is very strong and in shape, as he prefers to travel on foot and must be strong to fight off the many rogues and highwaymen who seek to rob him. He has a long, hawklike nose and large teeth, though he rarely smiles. His ears are pierced in several places, and his earrings are made of varying materials-ranging from gold to granite. He has a tattoo of a scorpion stinging a tarantula on his chest, the symbol of his family.

Mental Attributes / Personality: Helios is mostly a silent man, as the most talking he does is to incite drunkards to give him information about his next treasure hunt. Internally, he is torn by his two family murders: the killing of his father and the sacrifice of his younger brother. However, externally, he appears very calm and rational, and very grim. He tries to apply logical solutions to every problem, which could cause a problem if a situation arose where instinct was needed. He believes words are priceless, and so tries not to waste any. He is slow to anger, but when angered, he becomes a raging torrent of fury. His rage does not relax until the thing that caused him anger is dealt with. As such, he is prone to hold grudges that can last months and even years. Although he feels that he is a man without honor, he still does his best to be chivalric and honorable-perhaps as a way to atone for his deeds in the past.

Generally, Helios is a pessimist, but he feels that realism is more valuable in a line of work were boundless optimists typically wind up dead. In business transactions, he is feared, as his stare can cause even the most shrewd merchant to back down and give him more than his fair share of the deal. He is not an easy man to get to know, but once he becomes your friend he stays by your side. His unquestioning loyalty is one of the few attributes of his that he is openly proud of.

Background / History: Helios was born into a wealthy Eastern family, learning to be proficient with several weapons, but his favorite has always been the scythe. He was educated in several languages, something which has become very useful in his current line of work. His father was a very important figure in his life, but he and Helios disagreed on several major things, the most important being whether a king should wield absolutely authority, or if the government should be left to the common people. Helios felt that rule was best left with the people, and when the civil war erupted in his homeland, he took the side opposite his father. They met in combat in a small skirmish, Helios being the only survivor of the conflict. Helios decapitated his father with a single swing of his scythe, although his face was permanently scarred by his father's kris. Helios claimed the kris as his own after their battle, and took his father's shark tooth necklace.

After the civil war, Helios's brother Mikonos tried to hunt him down for killing their father, but Helios was easily able to subdue and bind him. For his insolence, Helios took him to a sacrificial altar and incited an ancient rite-by staining the blood of his scythe and kris with his own brother's blood, he made both blades ever-sharp and unbreakable. However, as they have been stained with such royal blood, they endlessly hunger for more.

Helios's sister Selena was sent away before the war erupted to an academy in the West, where she was to learn the arts of assassination and diplomacy. He still hopes to find her, and utilize her skills in conjunction with the riches he's found to rebuild his family's former glory. She doesn't know that his family is mostly dead by Helios's hands, and if she were to learn this she may abandon him completely or attempt to seek revenge. As such, if Helios does find Selena, he will need to keep this secret from her at all costs.

Helios's mother was largely unknown to him, as she spent most of her time in the capital city as an advisor to the king. He only knew that she was killed in the first overthrowing of the monarchy.
Equipment / Clothing: He is easily noticeable in crowds due to his strange clothing, a long crimson robe. The robe was white when he purchased it, but after his father's death he dyed it red, because he felt that he was no longer pure enough to wear white. Since his scythe is also crimson with his brother's blood, he is often called the Crimson Reaper. His kris is used only as a backup weapon, and he hasn't had to draw it since taking it from his father. He carries 10 small smokebombs, so that he may distract his enemies and kill them more easily.

Other Information: Helios is cold and merciless, and has killed many people when he was in a position to save them instead. He feels that no murder could be worse than the murder of his own father, and so he doesn't place a high value on human life.

Helios has a familiar, a small falcon named Argus that remains perched on his shoulder when it is not in flight. Helios has trained Argus to be more intelligent than the average falcon.

Wow. You mean I've received the highest grade ever?

O_o! Why didn't I post this sooner?

(Psst. Do I get a reward for having the highest grade ever? Maybe some kind of special banner or Zeny or something?)

Which I have duly received. I'd like to thank OriginXT, for providing with an opportunity to post this character, and Grand, for sending me the money, and Haven, for grading it so highly, and myself for making it...and the Grim Reaper, who was my inspiration.
