Cupid, Cue, is the kind of guy that catches your eye and keeps it. Sun kissed skin, an easy bright smile, a natural inclination to smooth strides and lounging in a way that accentuates a physique that many would strive for, being the center of attention seems to come naturally to the man. Of course some hate him for just the same things, but no one can deny the sheer physicality of the Galatea.


Programmed with the responses of a dating sim, Cupid was a mesh of bizarre science and heretical magic come to life. Created to love, doomed to tragedy, Cupid eventually parted ways with his creator - violently. Roaming Paris, his city of creation, for a few months, Cupid eventually found Pilgrim Marks that led him to the Carnivale, and he's been a shining star ever since.

RP Hooks

Acrobrat (not a typo): Cupid performs various stunts and shows for the Carnivale, but more than many of his compatriots he is inclined to ham it up to get as much attention as possible. Once he's in the spotlight it's hard for the man to let it go and he'd do a lot to keep those adoring looks on him. This doesn't always go so well for his coworkers.

Vigilante Shit: Every town Carnival stops in, Cupid tends to disappear during the evenings. Sometimes he comes back with blood on him. Sometimes he smells like ozone and burnt flesh. He always seems more content after.

+1 Affection: The Real Boy Dating Sim sometimes falls into lines that could only be pulled from a video game, and sometimes he talks to people more like it's a call and reponse rehearsal than real conversation. But he's never for lack of attention when he seeks it.
