Afterlife OCT: Simon by FlyKiwiFly Afterlife OCT: Simon by FlyKiwiFly
:iconafterlifeoct:



This fellow is Simon. He's new and I'm planning on entering him in :iconafterlifeoct: (hopefully). I originally had another fellow in mind for the OCT, but then Simon's story popped up in my brain and I liked it better. Now.... onwards to the audition comic!

Name: Simon
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Species: Traveler
Height: 5'11"

--

Personality:

Simon is a naive, curious, and kind person. He enjoys travel and has recently become more interested in learning about humanity rather than just simply observing their activities. Simon highly values freedom and has a strong desire to constantly stay on the move so he could see more of the world.

He is a pacifist and dislikes conflict. Simon would rather flee from the problem rather than face them most of the time. However, he is a loyal friend, and will face conflict if it means he could help someone important to him.

---

History:

Simon is a creature known as a Traveler. They were created by the planet and their only purpose was to travel the world and watch as history unfolded before them. Upon their death, they fade away and their memories are absorbed into the planet.

Originally nameless, Simon traveled around the world for quite some time before his encounter with a young prince named Richard. Overtime, the two of them became good friends and Richard would go to Simon for advice due to Simon being well-traveled. However, as time passed by, their friendship changed with Richard's growing responsibilities as king...

---

Strengths:

- Is quick to think on his feet (when you barely have any means to defend yourself, you have to think fast)
- Capable of flight (and is capable of reaching high speeds in the air)
- Since his species does not require food, water, or sleep (sleep is only for when they need to heal themselves), Simon can pretty much keep going as long as he wants
- Has very good eyesight and is capable of seeing in the dark
- Simon's wings double as a shield if he needs protection. Though the can "break" from a very strong attack, the wings are still a very good source of protection for Simon.


Weaknesses:

- Simon is most vulnerable when his wings are retracted and he's on the ground (he's pretty much a squishy human at that point)
- Because his strength is flying, Simon does not do well in enclosed spaces
- Like the rest of his species, he's not built for combat
- Eyesight is sense that his species relies the most on. Obscuring his vision causes him to become more vulnerable
- He tends to be more trusting of others (this could lead to some problems...)
- His ability to fly well depends on his emotional state. Emotions like panic and fear causes him the ability to fly with a clear mind (or in serious cases cause him to be unable to even summon his wings)
- A fatal injury is a fatal injury (example - being beheaded). His healing abilities do have limits.

Trivia:

- Despite what happened, Simon bares no ill will towards Richard and instead wants to return to life in order to help Richard find another solution to the plague.
- Although he is capable of healing his injuries, he cannot regenerate body parts that are severed from his main body. The only parts of himself he can regenerate are his eyes and wings
- When not being used as a shield, his wings have a soft, silky feel despite their feathery look (it is unknown what material a Traveler's wings are made of)
- Simon has a habit of leaving the places his visits untouched. If he opens a door or window, he will make sure he closes it (as if he was never there)
- Like the rest of his species, he does not require food, water, or sleep. He's capable of eating, however, after tasting a piece of rotten fruit Simon's decided that eating wasn't his cup of tea.
- Angels don't exist in his world. So if you call him one, he won't know what that is xD
- Simon's wings can change in size (it all depends on Simon)

Thank you :iconvenomouswolf: for your help 8D

Your welcome! I like his design with his how his coat's design looks reminiscent of wings, and how his wing work into his design.
Your sleek and clean art style makes him stand out as well.

I'm not sure if how far I'll get if I get in, considering the skill I'm seeing with a lot of the other entries. I'm still hoping to get in though.
