Description

Bastion stands at an even six feet tall and has a strong physique, a handsome (albeit sad) face, green eyes, and dark curly hair. He tends to dress in dark, nondescript clothing like he's trying to blend in.

Upon closer examination, those who can see such things can tell that Bastion is made up of parts from about four different people, and those people died violent deaths. His body is marred by the untreated wounds that killed the soldiers he was created from, a fact that stands out next to the careful stitching that was done to piece him together.

History

Created by a scientist who never stopped to think if what he was doing was right, working for a mercenary group that wanted to sell Super Soliders to the highest bidder, Bastion was created for War. He played his part very well, and for years, all he knew was war, fighting, and killing. It quickly became apparent he couldn't be on a battlefield with other soldiers on the same side as him, so he became a lone wolf on his missions.

He eventually realized he wanted something different from his existence; if he was going to fight, he wanted it to be for something he believed in. More importantly, though, he found a need to learn of something besides war and death. When he saw an opportunity to escape, he took it. He stumbled upon the Carnivale and joined in the hopes he could find what he was looking for.

Now that he has the Throng, he is fiercely protective of them, and heaven help anyone that tries to harm any of the other Created.

RP Hooks

Why So Sad? - Bastion tries to keep a neutral expression but despite his best efforts it's impossible to hide the sorrow and guilt in those green eyes. Perhaps you're the kind that likes to try and get people to talk about what ails them?

The Strong Man - Bastion's role in the Carnivale is technically one of a performer, but he's always willing to lend his strength where it's needed. It's not always just because something is too heavy, either. If you have a problem strong hands can fix, he can probably help.

Searching for Beauty - Despite the darkness he tends to surround himself in, Bastion can sometimes be found admiring artwork of all kinds, staring intently at it as though trying to understand something. Do you have the answers he's looking for?
