Biography: Octavius was born to a small, influential family on the world of Hapes. A not overly rich, overly powerful, or overly prominent family, the Bellator's were still tied extremely close to the Queen of Hapes, through ancient blood ties and pacts several generations in the making. As a male, Octavius did not have high expectations to rise through the ranks of society. While Hapes was not as restrictive as is once was, the gender boundaries were still actively present in some areas of society. This never bothered Octavius however, as he had little grand designs for his own life. He was raised, taught, and trained in various forms of statecraft, military strategy, and economic principles all with the understanding he would be a servant of the throne.

That wonderful plan, however, was altered rather drastically when Octavius found his way into the bed of a cousin to the Queen. It had not been his original plan when he went out with a few friends after a long day in the Palace Archives, but she had convinced him. She had forgotten to mention who she was though, a fact Octavius realized when royal guards were breaking down his door and dragging him to the Palace dungeons. He spent several days in those dungeons, waiting for the incident to be taken care of when a guard mentioned offhandedly to Octavius that his parents, whom he had been waiting for to get him released, had been the ones to report his activities and turn him in. Loyalty to the throne outweighed their love of their son, it seemed.

Octavius spent the next few weeks alone in that dark cell. Food was brought to him at regular intervals, though he saw the guards that brought it. He was alone, something he had never experienced before in his life to this extent. He slowly began to lose his sanity, slowly at first, but as the weeks turned into months, things began to accelerate. Just as he was on the verge of losing himself entirely, he received a cellmate. The man was a minor Sith of little note, a drunkard really who had been detained by the royal family after he had attempted to breach the Palace defenses for supposed relics held inside. It took the Sith four days to bring Octavius around to his 'side' in things, and he taught Octavius the minor things related to the Force, the things he himself had barely been able to grasp. On the fifth week together, when the guards had brought the two their food, Octavius used his newfound abilities to kill the two guards, springing them from their cell. Octavius killed the Sith afterward, leaving his body next to the guards.

He had smelled.

Using everything he could, Octavius made his way through the Palace, eventually making his way to the quarters his family resided in during their stays at the Palace. Octavius killed them, letting out his pain and frustration at them, and giving in to the insanity that had grown within his mind, before covering up the evidence and making it appear like a fire had claimed their lives. He made his escape from the Palace, and eventually Hapes. He spent the next few years traveling the galaxy, exploring worlds he had never expected to see, tasting foods he had only heard rumors of, and killing anyone who for a moment annoyed him. A trail of bodies followed him across the galaxy until he finally found a reason for doing what he did.

Personality: Cold, detached, charming, potentially insane, many of these things and more can be used to describe Octavius. On a first meeting, someone might see Octavius as a welcoming and happy individual, willing to work with others and form strong bonds. However, as people spend more time with him, they will come to see the charming, outgoing exterior is nothing but a facade for the truth hidden below. Cruel, sadistic, and with a desire to see all who oppose him, or even simply don't help him enough suffer and fall before him. When he sets himself to a task, he will rarely break from the course it has taken him on unless he honestly grows bored with the potential outcomes. He hates predictability, seeing chaos and uncertainty as to the only way for the galaxy, and himself, to develop and grow.

Strengths:

  • Warrior: Octavius was raised from a young age to be a warrior, first as a member of his tribe's defense force. Eventually becoming a Jedi with the Galactic Alliance and then Silver Jedi Order, Octavius has been trained in numerous different forms of combat across the galaxy, all blending together to create a singular, aggressive and adaptive combat technique he uses to great effect.
  • Calculating: Octavius takes the time to think out every outcome put before him, creating fall back plans and contingencies for what might happen. He dislikes being taken by surprise in most situations and makes sure he is as ready as he can be for everything that comes his way.
  • Adaptive: Octavius rarely looks at things as being impossible to achieve, rather, they are simply obstacles for growth. whatever is thrown at him, he will work to adapt to and learn from, rather than simply trying to destroy or avoid. The troubles in life are growing stages, no matter what shape or form they come in.

Weaknesses:
  • Insane: Through the many changes in his life, trials he has faced, and losses he has suffered, Octavius has come to lose part of himself. At times, his cool and charming facade will crack, and the insanity held within can be seen. At these times, Octavius becomes a wild unpredictable individual, doing whatever comes to his mind first and following the simplest whims. He throws himself into whatever is before him, no matter the threat to himself it might pose.
  • Sick: Since childhood, Octavius has suffered from regular, crippling illnesses. When a new bout of the sickness strikes him, Octavius becomes bedridden for weeks at a time, unable to move more than a few feet before completely collapsing. Despite the efforts of numerous doctors and healers, no source has been found for this illness, and while he recovers from each illness, the frequency of them has begun to increase, much to Octavius's personal concern.
  • Hemophilia: Octavius has a blood condition that when he is cut, his blood will not clot as effectively as it does for others. Even a minor cut could lead to a serious loss of blood, forcing him to be exceedingly cautious in a fight and avoid injuries others might shrug off.
