Candidate Malady

" You better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. "


NAME: "Malady", real name Jeb
ORIENTATION: Heterosexual

BIRTHDATE: Early Spring 2759
AGE: 16 as of Early Summer 2775
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr

EYES: Brown
HAIR: Black
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'8" (eventually 6'1"), lanky
PLAY-BY: Ayato Kirishima (Tokyo Ghoul)
Malady is around average height for his age, but with a lanky build. He has medium-fair skin, brown eyes, and black hair with a slight wave to it that he wears not quite to his shoulders. He has a rather round face that he often tries to keep a smirk plastered on. There's a long scar on the outside of right left forearm that he claims came from fending off a wild animal attack.

He tends to wear dark clothing, cut loosely so that he doesn't get too hot. His color preference is slowly fading thanks to Semaca's climate though.

Malady is an aloof, dark, and mysterious individual... or at least that's how he likes to think he comes across. He pretends he doesn't care what people think of him, but in reality he desperately wants to be thought of as "cool". Not necessarily liked, but respected. He puts on a tough guy act, often talking about how he knows so many ways to win a fight. He can kill a man with his bare hands, and was trained by a master of such things. In reality, he's never been in a fight in his life and was certainly never trained in it. In reality, he's extremely insecure and tries as hard as he can to pretend that he's anything but. He wants to be special, not normal and boring. He generally acts like he's far more competent than he believes he is, and pretends to an arrogance that he doesn't really feel.

He's a habitual liar, telling people whatever he thinks he needs to in order to seem more unique and interesting, going so far as to swear up and down that his real name is "Malady". He pretends that his life has been full of trauma and difficulty, because being seen as strong is something he wants. Mental fortitude in the face of adversity clearly makes him a better person. He acts like the scar on his arm is from fighting a wild wherry that tried to kill him and his mother before its mate showed up and killed his mother (she is, in fact, alive and well), because he just has to one-up the Candidates who went through the spotty attack.

Mother, Maude, Weaver
Father, Pekk, Leathercrafter
Older brother, Dan (2751)
Older brother, Tim (2755)
Older sister, Sue (2757)
Born at Telgar Hold to a pair of Crafters, Jeb was the youngest of four children and grew up constantly in the shadow of his high-achieving older siblings. He had an otherwise normal childhood, and most of his feelings of inadequacy compared to his siblings was of his own making--of course they'd achieved more, they'd had longer to do so than he had. Still, he was happy if occasionally lonely. He had some difficulty connecting with other children of his age, and had trouble making friends.

Early in his teen years, inspired by probably too many Harper stories, Jeb began to try to reinvent himself. He pretended he didn't need anyone, he was tough and competent and with a mysterious darkness to him. He insisted that people call him "Malady", because that's how he wanted to be seen: as something that happened to the world, not as someone who had nothing at all of interest happen to him. It was dark and edgy and just plain cool. When he tripped over a rock and gashed his left forearm, he gave any story but the truth about how it had happened. To those who would believe it, he told tall tales about an encounter with a bandit; to those who might question him, it was a wild animal. Never would he admit he'd just tripped while out walking.

And then a couple of Turns later, he was Searched. He saw the Weyr as an opportunity to both prove himself and have a fresh start. And of course, few people there would know his parents had never named him Malady. He accepted eagerly, ready to be away from anyone who'd ever known him as inadequate. However, he quickly found that Telgar Weyr wasn't nearly far enough away. There were a few other children from the Hold, and they all knew him as Jeb. He quickly requested transfer to Semaca. Surely that would be distant enough to be someone new!
