My name is Santiago. I was born in Makati City, Philippines, and I am primarily a role-player here on Gaia Online. I love to write, and no other hobby really makes me as happy. I don’t really mind who I play as; I think it’s exciting to try various roles. I’ve considered acting, but that’s always been sidelined to make way for my career goals. For a career, I want to be a detective, maybe working in forensics, or maybe in the medical field? I'd love to be a full-time writer, but that's not going to happen. I'd likely have anxiety attacks with writer's block. From time to time, the writer's block just kicks in.
For role-playing, I enjoy some superhuman, medieval fantasy, crime/mystery, school/academy, historical, science fiction, and more! I can play whichever gender, and will happily play an antagonist. It’s amusing to get graphic; violence and debauchery doesn’t bother me. Oh, and I do enjoy some good old psychopathic characters. Romance is my forté, so I’ll play a love interest (usually male since most role-players play the ladies). I like making original characters, but I’m more than capable of handling in-canon characters. I have a fondness for certain faces in my characters, especially for Gaspard Ulliel, Ben Barnes, Michael Fassbender, Milo Ventimiglia, Tyler Posey, Diego Boneta, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Andrew Garfield, Dave Franco, Shiloh Fernandez, Ben Whishaw, Cillian Murphy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Danielle Panabaker, Lily Collins, Alexis Ren, Yvonne Strahovski, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Emily Rudd, Adelaide Kane, Lyndsy Fonseca, and India Eisley.
For my interests, I love period films that involve historic elements. So far, my favorite films would be Troy, Alexander, Attila, Mozart's Sister, and Elizabeth. For the television series, I enjoy the Tudors, the Borgias (and the old Borgia), Spartacus, and Reign. Currently, I'm a fan of the Vampire Diaries (along with the Originals), Vikings, Game of Thrones, Hannibal, Flash, and Arrow. I just love television.
I’m evidently a big fan of Fifty Shades of Grey and have read all three books. I in no way support domestic abuse or unorthodox sexual practices simply because I enjoy the series. I appreciate the depth of the leading male because of his similar personal issues regarding the need to exercise control, the “shades of grey” in his personality reminiscent of how life truly isn’t just good and bad people, some clearly in between. If you haven’t read it, the series is about a girl who tries to find love in a man who, due to his experiences and nature, seemingly can’t, but he does, in fact, fall in love with her.
