Hobbies:
  • Besides sitting back and people watching, he builds model trains. For some reason, Luka has always loved the way they're put together, the way actual trains work. This hobby only really showed up with regularity after he'd moved away from the train tracks. It simply made his home more comfortable to him. At one point, before leaving Moscow, his dream was to become a railroad engineer. They were the epitome of power to him, of timelessness.
    He also adores history, reading about what actually took place has always been more interesting to him than fiction. As a boy, Luka would sit and read quietly while waiting on news about his mother. Like fairy-tales for other children, it became his escape. However, it’s not the battles or the treaties that interest him, but more so the relationships between the people of the past and what these things led to.
    His passion though is cooking. Cajun cooking to be exact. It’s the first thing he’s ever done that he’s been unarguably good at. Luka loves it so much that he’s left behind his childhood dream to work on trains to pursue his training in the culinary arts.
    There are also a few minor hobbies he indulges in, but do not necessarily define him as the others do. One more prevalent one is his tendency to memorizing name meanings. It makes for a interesting ice breaker. This does not mean he has memorized every name, but simply those commonly used and ones he's heard before. Names like Luke, Josh, Kailey, and Anne are easy and typically used. Therefore he knows them. Names like Lucas and Kenji though, he won't know at first. He'll definitely look them up though, and us it later on in conversation.


Family:
  • Luka was originally born in Kashin, Russia to an engineer and a landscaper. He enjoyed a happy family life up till the age of eight, at which time his mother passed away. He refuses to speak about the illness, much less name it, so as of yet all anyone can do is assume. Three days after the funeral, he moved with his father to Moscow, where he lived up until the age of 17. He then graduated early, applied for a student visa, and immigrated to America. As strange as it may seem, he went with his fathers blessing. This move was by this point almost tradition in his family. It started with his grandfathers immigration, and then his fathers. Though each came back, it was never the less expected of him to do the same. After all, eventually one member of the family would make it in the new world. However, most left in their mid twenties. Luka's early departure has been much remarked upon by his family, but whatever the reason may be, his immediate family keeps it to themselves. Upon arriving, he would reside with the New Orleans branch of his family for two years before gaining his citizenship and moving to Celeste. It was because of the New Orleans branch that he would be introduced to both to his love of Cajun cooking and his third cousin Mercy, with whom he has formed a close friendship in her brother's absence.
    He also received his nickname Luck from those same Cajun relatives, as no dish he made ever seemed to go wrong.

Celeste Community College

Grade:
Second Year Community College

Favourite Subject:
History/Math

English.

Cajun chef at a small hotel downtown. His boss credits his cooking for the fact that people choose to stay there at all.

Personality Traits:

Positive:

  • I will do it, I will know it, and I dare you to try and stop me! -Unrelenting
    He will not, under any circumstances, ease off when he feels he needs to know or do something. This man is the type to push and push and push till he gets what he wants. Can't afford the bus fare? Hoof it for three miles. Whiny diner? He'll come out of the kitchen with the same dish and make them love it. Dad won't tell him how his health is? Signed him up for home care from a continent away. Report for class due two weeks from now? Luka finished it three days ago and strong armed the teacher--Of course this only works if the teacher is strong-armable-- into taking it early so he could spend time out of class working on the things that really matter to him. While this can come off as stubborn and make him seem a little 'in your face' at times, it is a trait that has aided him quite a bit in his life. Whatever friends he's made in life have come to realize this is the one thing he can't change. Procrastination is a cardinal sin to him, and he makes sure he never indulges in it. Luka is a pusher, and he knows it. This has enabled him to get to America, get his citizenship, and obtain a job doing what he loves. It is, without a doubt, his most defining trait. Unfortunately, it could also very easily be what leads him to burn out and sink into depression.

  • I saw what you did there -Observant-
    Luka is nothing if not observant. When his mother died years ago, the boy developed a habit of watching the doctors deliver 'good news' to his father. As the hospital visits became more frequent, and the doctor's assurances became more and more enthusiastic, little Luka couldn't help but notice that the nurses looked away and that the doctor's smiles never reached his cold eyes. The fact that people lie, and lie easily, was a lesson learned early in life for him. This jaded him from a young age. From that point on, it became a hobby to watch for those little signs and to study the science of micro-expressions, which resulted in an uncanny ability to recognize facial tics and match them to emotions. This also means, however, that he lacks the ability to take anything at face value which has caused some doors to close for him and somehow opening others. He applies this ability to current day situations, attempting to judge what people actually think of him and others, despite what their lips might say. Unfortunately, he also takes some completely innocent facial tics as what they would be when seen on less honest people, which has led to some issues. There are people who smirk instead of smile, who find laughing hard, and who fidget more out of habit than actual nervousness. Perhaps its because he can't tell what they actually think of him, but these types make him skittish. Sometimes, it is simply necessarily to trust people and it is in those times that Luka will undoubtedly fail.

  • It won’t go any further than us -Trustworthy-
    Luka takes the aforementioned trait and can use it on his own features. Its not known if he realizes he’s doing it, but he has the habit of molding his features into, not what he really thinks at times, but what expression is most apt for the person or situations. Because of this, people often can find it very easy to open up to him. Thankfully, he is pretty trustworthy, so this trait can't really be classified as bad. Its more that knowing these things about people and sometimes actually being able to help them with them gives him pleasure. Let him be your strong shoulder, he'll listen and he won't breath a word. He values things said in confidence above anything else, ergo when you tell him, you only tell him. In another life, he would have made an excellent therapist. This doesn't mean he'll listen to your sins and play the priest, absolving you of all you've done wrong. No, he won't out you, but he will attempt to oh so subtly push you in the direction of a confession to the wounded party. This is of course, completely nullified if the thing you've done was actually bad enough completely screw up another persons life. He can't in good confidence let you unburden yourself with something with something like that and then just go on living. His unrelenting trait comes in well here. Luka might not tell them himself, but he's going to do everything he can to sabotage any attempt you've made at covering up.


Negative:

  • I can’t do it, I can’t trust you -Suspicious/Doubtful-
    Unfortunately, because he’s good at reading faces and reactions, that means he doesn’t take a person’s words for their own value. He finds it very hard to trust people, as most of the ones he talks to never seem to say what they actually want to, what their face actually shows that they feel. He finds that, if they can lie on simple things, what’s to keep them from lying about things that matter? Above any other type of people, he values those with open eyes and open faces, if only to know where he stands with them. Those are the type of people who have the greatest chance of getting past this trait. Even if you hate him, he'll still respect you for actually putting it out there. With close family and friends, he's able to suspend his doubts. After all, Luka should know by now what these people think of him. He might not be the greatest guy in the book, but he knows his family loves him and that his friends care about him. Its just....everyone else that he has to be on the lookout for. It's not as though Luka likes being lonely, to be honest. He'd like being able to simply trust others, to just be for a little while, to have a group of people he could depend on. He'd like to not look over his shoulder and wonder about the person behind him. He just can't. He really just...can't. There are times he convinces himself he's better off this way, that it keeps him safe. Those times never last. Luka was never a good liar, least of all to himself.

  • And how exactly do you think it will ‘all work out’? -Pessimistic-
    He’s a cups half empty kind of guy. This is more forced than natural though, as he believes that every time he was actively hopeful about something in youth, it went the opposite way. This started with his mother, but quickly grew into a trend for the rest of his life. For every time the little boy hoped for her to improve, she went the other direction. When he hoped for his fathers job to improve, he lost it. He hoped to get to America by 16, and was delayed a year because of passport issues and some...unmentionable things going on at home. While these things don't happen every day, they're just enough for him to fixate on them. Think of it as his way of guarding against a jinx. It’s annoying and silly yes, but everybody’s a little superstitious about something. This isn't to say he's a debbi downer though. He's not going to rain all over your parade by saying it won't happen, it won't work, nothing you can do about it. No, he'll just withhold himself from it, refraining from using the word 'hope' in conjunction with the event and really being all that surprised when it doesn't happen. While it doesn't effect his friends and family much, it's far to obvious what it does to him. Luka might not seem bitter to those around him, but inside...he very well might be, though he would never actually admit that to himself. He thinks he's keeping himself safe, and jading himself is just the necessary price to pay. It's hard to get him enthusiastic about anything if it isn't completely set in stone, and even then it's with a grain of salt.

  • And then he was simply gone- Reclusive
    Luka was never the most outgoing of people, not by a long shot. It isn't as though he's a home body by choice though. No, if he had his way he'd be around others his age at clubs or at the very least hanging out around his school. You know, the 'normal' things 21 year-olds do. If this was simply him being a home body, that wouldn't be the case. He'd be fine staying upstairs with nothing but his trains and the internet for company. Unfortunately, it's not. Luka's reclusive nature is a direct by product of his depression. In fact, you could even call it his coping method. Back in Russia, he'd withdraw for a day or two, coming out to see the trains--though this has been replaced with his cook books and culinary experiments---, and when he'd lost himself sufficiently to the things he loves, he'd come back to the world, none the worse for having disappeared. There's not really a way for him to tell if it's coming on though, which creates a problem. When things have a tendency of popping up with no warning, it's difficult to plan your life around them. Things get dropped and moved around a lot when it happens, which leads to him not having much of a social life. In fact, it leads to him almost avoiding one entirely. Why should he plan things, when he knows for a fact he only has a 50/50 chance of them going through?


Unclassifiable:

  • Pfft, I can do it too –Competitive-
    He really, really doesn’t like it when people assume they can do something he can’t. This has pushed him to try some things he's eventually come to love, but it drives him to attempt some incredibly stupid things he probably shouldn't. Literally, there are no limits to what he'll have a go at if someones goading him into it. While this trait hasn't proven fatal yet, it has landed him in some pretty bad spots. There's been quite a few times when he's gotten his a** thoroughly handed to him. Don't get me wrong though, even though he absolutely hates being shown up, Luka will own up to it. Of course, then he'll turn around and challenge you to something in his skill area. Whether or not you accept is up to you, but be prepared for some gloating if he bests you. This has led to some unfortunate instances when he's gotten the crap beaten out of him for actually winning, but he’s gotten better at keeping out of these situations lately. Though,that might just be because he hasn’t been interacting with people as much as he used to.

  • I think you’re a tool –Unreserved-
    His lack of friends could have something to do with this. No one escapes it, not even Grandma and the kids. He’s by no means quiet when he feels he has something to say, and he has never been known to pull punches. He won’t bother to insult you behind your back, he’ll do it with delight to your face. This also means that if he likes you or something you've done, you'll hear all about it. Hell, if he could, he'd rent a blimp just to show you. Its not like your teachers, your parents, the ones who told you that dog you drew was the next Picasso, despite the worm like nature of it. Praise from him is never meaningless, and never held back.

  • When he was happy, he was very happy, but when he was sad, he was very sad indeed -Prone to Depression-
    Its not known exactly why, but Luka has always been prone to fits of sadness. Sadness without reason, sadness that does not explain itself and then back away, sadness without a name. Perhaps it was his mother, or perhaps it was that peculiar feeling he'd had since a babe, that he had been born into this world already having lost something dear to him. Something he stood little chance of getting back. Whether its because of this, or simply a quirk of his personality is not known. His father sent him to the men with the large offices and comfy couches as a child, men who studied these things for a living. Even they did not know. They simply said that he was just a old soul, trapped in a jaded little boy. Treatments were tried, pills and such, but nothing took. While not really a personality trait so much as an illness, this is put in because, whether he admits it or not, it was one of the key things in shaping him into who he is.

Knight Name:
Lord Seraphinite
Name:
Luka Gunther
Senshi:
He will, as discussed with her owner, be eventually tied to Sailor Corvus, as her Knight in both her past life and this one.
Alignment:
Dark {Of the more misguided variety}

Knight Uniform Refs:
[x][x]

Pallet:
Unless it is specifically mentioned, I leave the placement of colors up to the artist in this. Please stick withing the colors of the mineral itself though. Lights and dark greens, whites, greys, and black.
Stone Refs:
[x][x]

Top:
Tunic {Details to grow more ornate as stages progress} topped with a simple vest. Under the pelt, either connected to the vest or sitting on top of them should sit either metal or leather shoulder plates. Under all of this is a simple lighter grey long sleeved under shirt.
Bottom:
Not loose enough to be pants, not tight enough to be tights. Breeches all the way baby~ <3
Shoes:
Military-esque high top boots. Ignore first ref and look towards the Breeches ref and the second ref instead. Copy the ones on the green guy. Metal Greaves over them.
Back:
Hanging dark grey wolf pelt, to grow longer and attain a hood throughout later stages as he goes dark. Two thinner segments will go over his shoulders and hang over his chest though. Have yet to work out if they're the paws or just thin strips of the pelt. Pelt will grow darker in color and start to have feathers worked in as stages progress as well. Intending to slowly turn into a feathered cape as he fully becomes the Corvian Knight. Should be mid thigh length by then.
Waist:
Tunic should cover almost the entire crotch or all of it. Sitting on top will be a simple belt to give definition
Arms/Hands:
Black leather Gauntlets going up three fourths of the way to the elbow. Metal Bracers sitting over them.
Head:
None till Hood in later stages.
Accessories:
One black feather Cuff on his left hand

Weapon:
  • Bardiche. Same basic design as this, but longer top blade, and instead of the browns on the shaft dark green dyed leather wrapped around the gripping point. Instead of the brown in the blade, feathered inlays of Seraphinite. Look at the second uniform ref to see its height and such.


Ability:
  • Jumping. Or rather, the ability to go higher than humanly possibly and remain suspended in the air for a handful of seconds longer than even the best athlete. This has enabled him to turn Celeste's downtown districts into his own personal playground.

    The specifications for this ability would be fairly simple. While in his knight form, he would be given a three foot boost as a knight, four foot boost as a paladin, and a five foot boost as a champion on top of his regular jumps.
    This ability, unfortunately, not only affects how far he goes, but also how much energy he expends in his jumps. At first, he will only be able to do it twice during battle, going up to three at paladin, and finally topping out at four at champion. He will remain in the air for up to five seconds as a knight, seven seconds as a paladin, and ten seconds as a champion. He can chose when to use the boost, and when to just run or jump regularly. As he trains outside of battle, he'll be able to maximize on regular jumping, only having to depend on his ability in battle. If tries to use it beyond the limit or under extreme circumstances, he'll leave himself completely winded and unable to get away. At that point, it will only be his wits and every day skills that are at his disposal.

❤❤❤❤ | Hate
❤❤❤❤❤ | Dislike
❤❤❤❤❤ | Neutral
❤❤❤❤❤ | Like
❤❤❤❤❤ | Love


Name | Heart Rating | Comments

Kae | ❤❤❤❤❤ | Originally met at that illfated circus trip, Kae had since become a regular at Bonne Vie. Luka finds it hard to tell what she's thinking, for all that he has come to enjoy their conversations.

Corvus | ❤❤❤❤❤ | Showed up when the circus trip went to hell. Ran off, left him to defend himself and a kid against a giant spider. Luka knows she probably had a good reason, but it still left a sour taste in this chefs mouth.

Lucas | ❤❤❤❤❤ | Seemed nice enough. Only got to chat with him for a few seconds. Seemed to be something between him and Kae. Luka wonders why that disappointed him.

Sadie | ❤❤❤❤❤ | Very quiet when he was around. No actual opinion on her yet. Maybe they'll meet again?

Lanie | ❤❤❤❤❤ | Was with Sadie. The two seem to be in a relationship, but Luka doesn't know anything about them beyond that. Again, didn't get to talk to them.
