Joaquin??? Although damn he had the huge advantage of a very fortunate placing in social hierarchy at birth. But considering he’s had BY FAR the most character development, my highest level character, and happened to save the world this spot is his. He wouldn’t think so.
Easton has really been doing pretty damn good as an adventurer. Shit his goal in life was to make enough money to be the one being pampered and he has SO MUCH MONEY. Adventuring has worked out well for him.
Atlas has obtained the first goal on his list by becoming a Paladin, but now he just needs to marry his crush/one true love and then he will be golden.
Bucky is going through a lot of shit and HAS NO IDEA WHAT TO DO. but he’s also loaded and still alive so there’s that.
Alexei would consider himself very successful but he’s a fucking failure 90% of the time.
MOST HONEST TO LEAST
Atlas doesn’t lie. honor.
Easton avoids being dishonest unless he’s working. Then he’s got to fake it so the customer likes it. He’s got a great bluff for telling someone they’re the best he’s ever had.
Alexei doesn’t mind lying to people. Especially if it is to protect them from something bad. He’s also awkward 100% of the time so its hard to tell if he’s being sneaky.
Joaquin doesn’t so much lie to people as he omits the truth to be advantageous to himself. And he’s damn good at it. His family, and his husband are all in politics and he has to keep his wits about him somehow. He also loves keeping people on edge.
Bucky doesn’t tell the truth. He’ll exaggerate, he’ll fib, he’ll pretend to be 10x stronger than he is or 10x weaker. A true master of lowering his peer’s expectations and then exceeding them when least expecting it.
BEST PUBLIC SPEAKER
With enough preparation?? Joaquin. He has to prepare for DAYS before hand. He will rewrite a sentence 50 times until it is just right. When giving a speech he speaks with a lot of passion that people don’t usually see out of him. Cause damn if there is enough or a reason for him to give a speech he’ll make it a good one.
If it is improvisation Bucky might actually beat out Joaquin. He’s quick on his feet and is one hell of a bewildering storyteller. This little mullet-sporting pirate is great at commanding attention when he wants it.
Easton is okay and charming because of how he clearly speak from the heart! He’s cute and has a big heart.
Atlas talks to much and in circles and gets cold feet and stage fright. He doesn’t do public speaking.
Alexei thinks he’s good at it.
KINDEST TO RUDEST
Atlas is the kindest!! He tries his best to be a good. person.
Joaquin doesn’t come off as all that kind but he’s a huge softy. Even if his exterior is black and and he keeps his distance from people. He goes out of his way to do whatever he can to help people and is very modest about it. It’s a lot easier to fix other people’s problems than your own. But!! The way he shows affection/being comfortable around you is through teasing and snarky remarks.
Easton has a kind ideal but comes off too strong. He’s always happy to help people, but also is a lot to handle upon first meeting. He’s like a big golden dog that jumps on you and sometimes humps your leg for a treat.
Bucky is a whiney piece of cowardly shit who is out for himself.
And then idfk Alexei is the rudest without meaning to be. He isn’t great as socializing and spends too much time reading trashy romance novels.
Joaquin. By far. All my character but him are morons. Seriously. Joaquin is well educated and very tactically minded. He also has a problem overthinking situations that lead to missed opportunities.
Then probably Bucky? He knows how to keep his head low and lower expectations of himself to take the easy way out.
Alexei and Atlas are read in certain areas. Atlas knows religon and Alexei knows his weird out there information that I keep rolling 20s on. Alexei is the guy who is good at jeopardy because he knows all the out-there information that you just go “why the fuck do you know that”
Easton is honestly not that well educated. He learned almost everything he knows by looking over Artie’s shoulder when he was studying. Easton never had the opportunity to go to school, and was very lucky to have Artie teach him how to read as he learned.
CHEF- already answered
Alexei! Not that his imagination is all that….good? it’s certainly thinking out of the box, or backwords, or just plain awkward.
Joaquin very much enjoys a variety of creative ways to express himself. He’s shy about it but is a great singer and a solid pianist. His parents provided him with a good amount of artist training with painting and drawing, but he’s only really good at copying things. He lacks a kind of confidence in his creativity.
Easton and Atlas and Bucky are just. Well. Bucky can tell a hell of a long winded story that is 90% exaggeration.
HAUNTED HOUSE EXPLORATION
ALEXEI!!! He would be so fucking excited and climb right in as soon as whoever he was with let him. This also happened in session too. He’s super inquisitive and wants to stick his nose into everything.
Easton and Joaquin wouldn’t really want to but he’d go along with people. Atlas would feel obligated and Bucky would complain loudly and then sneak off to be far away from the house asap.
BEST TO WORST CHEF
Easton is the best by dar. He is actually excellent at baking and really enjoys doing it. It may seem a little out of character, but one of the lady prostitutes he was raised by was a pastry chef.
Atlas can cook well rounded hearty meals! He likes to do it once and a while but his food is always greasy very american food.
Next would be uhhh Joaquin I guess. He’s never had to cook for himself but he can follow a recipe perfectly. But ask him to throw stuff together and he couldn’t/wouldn’t.
Alexei is a vampire he drinks blood and
oh my god okay this is actually really hard
(gutter) i’m gonna say Alexei with Easton as a very very close second. My characters aren’t all that confident with themselves tbh, but Easton and Alexei know what their short comings are and deal with them okay.
Easton has a huge hang up on being treated like an object and not being confident in his abilities in doing anything besides being paid for sex or as a hired sword. He also is very ashamed about his feelings for Artie and absolutely petrified of messing up their friendship.
BUT Alexei is a fucking Vampire but he appreciates what he’s been given out of the deal. Yeah it sucks he murdered his friends but now he’s doing all this cool stuff and has friends that aren’t throwing him out for biting into their necks accidentally!!
And Atlas tries to be confident but he’s still a mess of feeling very unpracticed and unsure of himself. He hasn’t quite realized that no matter how many times he says the preachings, it doesn’t make him believe in them more.
Then there is Joaquin. Listen to What a Catch Donnie - fob.
See the obvious go-to would be Easton because he’s a prostitute, but his views on the whole thing are complicated. Yes he would enjoy having sex, it just is more of a job without any emotional benefits to it? He also only knows how to make it a pleasurable experience for the other participant(s)!
But other than that the person most into it rn would be Joaquin because he’s got a hot husband and they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Atlas is at the bottom he’s terrified of sex.
MOST MENTALLY STABLE
Atlas. Yes. He deals with his problems head and and confronts issues instead of worrying about them. He’s confident enough in his abilities and is willing to learn from his mistakes.
Then would be Easton. He has his two issues, but is able to shrug it off and look to the bright side! Easton does have a quick temper when it comes to Artie but you could throw anything at him and he would shrug it off.
Joaquin would be next because damn boy has had a lot of character development look at him. He still has major self esteem issues and can easily have a day go from good to bad, but he’s come to terms with a lot of the negative feelings he has of himself. Joaquin doesn’t have nearly the same amount of personality issues that make him take on entire different characters to avoid being himself now. It is unbelievable how much Nifty helps him out with this. Like seriously, having someone he can trust and calls him out on his bullshit has made a very noticeable change. His friends and family have seen a vast improvement in his generally participation in conversations and events since the two of them got serious.
And then there is Alexei whose whole point is to be a Vampire twilight fan who shops at hot topic and writes self-insert fanfiction of his party members in infernal. Its hard not to be more unstable than this fucker.
I’ve thought about doing commissions for awhile but now I’ve reached a financial situation where I need to! The cost of rent and food isn’t cheap and until I get another job I need some sort of supplemental income.
For now I’m going to open up 5 slots and see how long that takes me before I open up any more. If you’re interested in any of these styles please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As for what I will draw: I’m open to mostly anything but there are certain nsfw things I’m not comfortable with drawing. Just shoot me an email and we can discuss this! I’ll also draw multiple characters but it’ll cost extra depending on interaction, pose, detail, etc.
Feel free to check out my art tag for more examples of my work.
Even if you’re not interested in a commission I’d still really appreciate it if you’d reblog this post as a signal boost. Thanks!
