Hi guys. Let me start off by apologizing to those I was talking with about my last OC-some really messy stuff came up and I couldn't adequately respond to your questions and comments.
Name: Gustav “Gorgeous” Gamboge
Sexual/Romantic Orientation: Bi
Blood Type: O positive
Affiliations/Organizations: VML (Vale Muscle League)
Occupation: Amateur Wrestler
Part 2: General Appearance: Gustav is well built as a result of his diet and training. He stands tall and proud, his body tan gleaming due to his tendency to apply a thin layer of oil all over. His deep blue veins stand out against the yellowish tone of his flesh, and contrast with his saffron-colored eyes. His hair is styled as a short mohawk, which is deep brown in color. In the ring, he prefers to wear tan wrestling pants and black wrestling boots, while outside he wears a rough woolen tan jacket, its sleeves cut at the elbow, a plain white shirt underneath, black pants and shoes.
Height: 6 feet 8 inches
Weight: 200 llbs
Tattoos/Birthmarks/Scars: A massive Railway gun, running from stomach to neck, is tattooed in black and white on his body. The barrel of the cannon is aimed upwards, pointing to his chin. On his forehead is a G, which is black in color but burns in the color of saffron when his Semblance is active.
Personality: Outwardly, the very appearance of Gamboge is intimidating as he tends to tower over most people-not to mention his well-built body. In his dealing with others, his voice is gruff, his words are brutally direct and straight to the point. In fact, one could say he is not very considerate of others feelings or very bad at reading the room, as he says whatever is in his heart regardless of whoever or whatever is facing him. Coupled with the fact that he is almost always scowling, eyes narrowed and nostrils dilated, he comes of as a terrifying giant one step from clobbering others-his supposedly aggressive words are but the prelude.
However, all of this is a smokescreen thrown up by Gamboge. In his heart, he wrestles with fear of defeat and self-doubt sown by his shrewish mother, who viewed his passion for sports and wrestling as nothing more than a waste of his time. In fact, his mother’s stern gaze and cold voice is enough to bring him to his knees and weep-a fact he has worked hard to conceal. Consequently, insults hurled at his ability and self-worth serve to throw him into a brief period of confusion, before provoking his rage.
Some people assume Gamboge is nothing but dumb muscle, running on rage and athletic ability. These people are soon shown the error of their thoughts as Gamboge utilize his cunning and knowledge of techniques to turn the match in his favour. He is also an honourable fighter, refusing all sorts of enhancements, drugs or underhanded tactics to turn a fight in his favor-he is determined to get ahead on his own skill and wits.
Goals/Motivations/Dreams: Gamboge wants nothing more than to overcome his cowardice and self-doubt, and rise become the number one wrestler in all of Remnant.
Part 4: The Character's Relationship With Others
Reputation: Gamboge is admired by his peers for his wrestling abilities, and his rivals tend not to underestimate him. However, his manager tries his utmost to keep him away from a mike, for Gamboge’s brutal honesty is not appreciated by the shadier elements in the League.
Love Interest(s): The Championship belt
Friend(s)/Ally(ies): Rozen Et Argent, Tomoko Taakoizu, Notte Ghirga
Part 5: The Character's Abilities
Fighting Style: Despite his muscular build, Gamboge’s style leans towards grappling and athletic feats over pulverizing opponents with mere strength. This is mostly because wrestling involves a degree of showmanship if one is to be successful, thus even though Gamboge’s attacks may take multiple steps to pull off, they are undoubtedly effective in wearing tough opponent’s stamina down. In addition, Gamboge makes effective use of the environments, be it ropes to give increase the momentum of his rebound or a building roof to increase the power of his drop-style moves.
However, Gamboge often has to hold back from using his ability to the fullest in the ring, otherwise he may even kill an opponent.
A description of some of his moves are below.
Gamboge Buster: Gamboge places an opponent's neck on his shoulder and grabs their thighs. He then jumps up and lands in a sitdown position, causing damage to the neck, spine, and groin.
Gamboge Gun: Gamboge grabs the opponent by his legs and arms, locking them into position as he swings them back and forth before launching them several meters forward.
Heel Drop:Gamboge performs a powerful heel drop on the opponent’s head.
Gamboge Cartwheel: Gamboge performs a cartwheel and uses the momentum of the rotation to deliver a powerful kick with the side of his foot.
Gamboge Millenium: Gamboge sends his opponent high in the air vertically, then he runs into one of the ring's ropes at a fast speed, sets himself like a slingshot, and then launches himself into his opponent's back headfirst. The front part of his opponent's body is pushed into the opposite side of the ring's ropes, which leaves noticeable marks of the ropes on the opponent's front.
Preferred Weapon(s): His fists and his brawn.
Semblance: Hustle Muscle! The greater Gamboge’s Velocity, the greater the power of his attacks. As he builds up speed, the G mark on his head begins to burn brightly, the color ranging from saffron to bright gold. This distracting color, coupled with the sheer power of Gamboge at high velocities would make enemy wrestlers prefer to be hit by a train, or have a mountain dropped on them. However, it takes quite some time for Gamboge to build up velocity, and he must not stop moving lest he lose it all. Thus he resorts to flashy throws, rope swings and rebounds, and swift dodges in order to keep his velocity up and please the crowd.
Character Background: Gamboge was very fond of sports as a child, and often watched wrestling matches among other sports with his father. He soon began to crave the glory and wealth the ‘pros’ enjoyed, and wanted nothing more than to become the very best there was. Unfortunately, his parents disapproved, and decided to pressure him into adopting a ‘safe’ path, becoming a mechanic or doctor or something incredibly boring. His father went as far as to bar him from the school’s wrestling and boxing clubs, and his mother would constantly belittle his passions in order to discourage him. This began to sow the seeds of self-doubt in his heart, until he decided to run away from home at the age of 17.
Gamboge had to toughen up on the streets, and used his brawn to win underground championships. With his winnings, he was able to train underneath the famed former wrestler Kinnikuman Mantaro, who provided the positive reinforcement Gamboge needed. Soon, he was ready to step into the legitimate circuit, but a culture of corruption and general disdain of ‘ starving street brats’ prevented him from achieving the success he desired.
Depressed, one day he wandered into a backstreet bar and attempted to drown his sorrows in alcohol, where he met Rozen Et Argent.
“Gorgeous Gamboge, I have a proposition for you.”
