    SKILLS & ABILITIES

    • Parkour
      Fast runner, outstanding climber, very agile and stronger than he looks – while he is only a human, he exceeds even trained soldiers in this category. It plays into his hands that he has a natural sense for balance and no fear of heights, which paired with a fast intake of any surroundings and their advances makes him very hard to catch. For him, it's just another usual way to get around.
    • Intelligence
      According to the republics nationwide mandatory Trials (see history) he is one of the smartest persons alive. It focused on traits that are useful for the military, like memory, perception, awareness, capacity of reaction and improvisation as well as strategic planning – all things where he excelled. Additional he got a good sense for right or wrong, following a own set of morality.
    • Resourceful
      Able to use almost anything to make what he needs – handmade weapons out of PVC pieces and rubber, shelter out of planks, clothes from scraps, finding the edible leftovers in the garbage cans, rewiring cables to re-direct speakers etc. While not at the skill level of an mechanic or inventor he makes do with whatever he can get his hands on, which are mostly things others have thrown away.
    • Talker
      Be it a flirt for information, a made-up cover story or a speech that encourages a whole nation, he can do it without much preparation. It's part of him to observe the happenings around him, to notice the flaws and wrongs and he took it as his duty to speak up for the people without a voice, try all he could to make the world a better place or at least wake up others.
    • Fighting
      While he prefers to keep his distance and stay out of fights, he is able to hold his ground in close combat. His skill with a knife shouldn't be misjudged, he can throw them precisely and knows where to hit to make damage – and don't think an slingshot is a harmless kids toy. The skills from parkour come in handy too, meaning he'll opt for speed and evasion rather than knock-out through sheer force. But unless trapped his strategy consists of avoiding as he is pretty aware of his limits.

    EquipmentKnives – a twin set, tuck into his belt, as well as blades hidden in his boots
    Communication device – earpiece, military style, only able to receive and send on certain frequencies and within some miles/kilometers
    Money – couple Republic notes that are barely worth the paper they are printed on
    Identification – military ID Tag, any vital information is stored on a chip embed in the metal
    Fanny pack – contains his medicine: a bottle of pills (suppressants) as well as a tin with prescription cigarettes (painkiller, weed-based), should last at least a month

    WEAKNESSES

    • Education
      Since he dropped out of school at age 10 he missed out on any higher learning. Reading, writing and basic math are no problem, but he has no clue about biology, physics, politics, economy and so on. Also he distrusts the histories and world views that where taught to him, as he figured out they are heavenly infused with military propaganda and don't show the whole picture.
    • Health
      Due to the fact that he was experimented upon, he lives with a medical condition that will kill him if left untreated. Basically it's a brain tumor, his symptoms mainly headaches that range from mild to severe, sometimes knocking him out for hours. Other effects he got are occasional dizziness, disorientation and insomnia. Most times it goes away on it's own and he has some medication with him for worse reactions, but it will gradually turn worse and needs professional attention.
    • Philosophy
      Not exactly his fault, but since he got infused with military propaganda his whole life, he has a rather loop-sided world view. His discovery that most of it wasn't true just made it worse, as he lacks the information to counter what was told to him, leaving him distrustful and up to piece it together on his own. He lived on the wrong end of a dysfunctional system and never learned that there are other ways to cope than set fire to the police station if an officer missuses his power for example.
    • Impulsive
      Albeit he got the sense to think before acting most of the time, when facing mortal danger, seemingly unsolvable problems or simply scared all his instincts go right out the window. He forgets his instincts about balance in fight, let´s emotions get the better of him and makes bad decisions, like jumping an superior opponent instead of running.


    PERSONALITY

    Despite growing up in a rather unpleasant place, he managed to become a decent person. He is kind and goodhearted, placing the needs of others above his own and refusing to kill any people. Growing up poor taught him to be humble and value relationships. Family is everything for him and while he is slow to make friends, once won over you can count on his loyalty and wholehearted trust. But this doesn't mean he'll be less honest with his opinions – Daniel speaks up if anything bothers him and isn't exactly subtle with it, which lead to some problems in the past. Together with his refusal to simply accept anything so-called authorities say, this can easily annoy people who are used to be respected without questions. The mistrust has it's origin in several bad experiences and it takes time to prove him different. In general he wears his heart on a sleeve, making it easy to read his emotions and use them against him, as he is prone to react impulsive if angered or irritated. At the end of the day, he still is nothing but a teenager who got hunted as well as glorified and the latest events lead to many people putting their trust in him to save them. It's a burden he hasn't asked for and he is scared to let them down, since there's the future of a whole country at stake. All he dreams of is some normality.


    APPEARANCE

    Daniel is quite a handsome guy, with 5'10'' / 1,78m tall for his 16 years, all lean and wiry from a life full with physical activity. He is of Mongolian heritage, which shows in slight almond eyes and skin of a light brown. Outstanding are his bright ocean-blue eyes, one with an tiny imperfection, a ripple of lighter color. Fair blonde hair hangs thick past his shoulders, shining like a beacon if hit in the right angle. Apart from the occasional scar, his skin is smooth, but his left knee got replaced with a artificial one just recently, steel plates molded to his skin stretching across thigh and calf.
    The clothes he prefers are plain and simple, most times simply a shirt and trousers, where he goes for practical use rather than design – but sometimes he opts for vests, jackets, even uniforms to blend in with his surroundings. Usually he stuffs his hair into a cap to hide them, as well as he tucks his trousers into his scuffed-up booths to minimize the risk to trip over it. He always wears a pendant consisting of a old quarter dollar hidden by cheap metal.


    BRIEF HISTORY


    Life before LegendBorn into a poor family, living in a slum of sorts, in a country that was at war so long the cause nearly got lost, his start into life wasn't the best. There was never enough food, clothes or room. Government provided for school, but didn't bother much with the lives of poor, the checks for plagues and the presence of officers more a threat than a reassurance. Daniel got by, supported by a loving family, even thought his father died when he was 8 and he had occasional encounters with authorities. His fate changed when he turned 10 and had to take the Trial, like everyone else – a mandatory test consisting of a physical examination, a 32-pages written test and an interview. In total 1500 points to achieve and the score decides about your future, if you're allowed to college, just finish high-school or drop out for low work. Or you fail, with less than 1000 points, like he did. It meant he got put on a train instantly, supposedly shipped of to a labor camp... except it's a lie. He ended up in a lab, experimented upon. If they hadn't thought him dead, left him with the other bodies, he would've had no change to get away.

    The boy who walks in the light5 years have passed. Daniel lives on the street, homeless, together with a girl named Tess that tagged along at some point. No one but his older brother John knows he's still alive, but he checks on his family regularly. In the meantime he has taken up a criminal path, hindering the republic where he can under the alias Day, determined to bring the system down that does all these cruel things. When his little brother Eden comes down with a new strain of the ever-present plague, he throws aboard all caution and makes the desperate move to break into a hospital unprepared to steal medicine.
    Some time later, he picks up another girl (June) on the streets and cares for her to make up for the fact that she was injured because of a thing he pulled during a street fight and they get closer. Again things take a turn, when she tells him that the plague control is on their way to his family to take them away. Daniel leaves heads over heels to safe them, albeit he has no plan. Like the labor camp, it's a set up. Authorities wait for him, ready to arrest him for all his crimes. They go to full lengths to lure him out and shot his mother. The brothers get locked away and Daniels execution is ordered. June, who worked for the government all along, discovers something that changes her mind – that he has a perfect score like she and that he didn't kill her brother during his hospital break-in. On the day of the execution she helps him escape, but due to the short preparation time and his bad health state, they nearly fail. In the end John doubles as Daniel in front of the firing squad, so that he may have the change to save Eden.

    ProdigyDay and June are fugitives on the run to the Patriots, a rebel group they encountered before. They need their help to find Eden and Daniel requires medical attention. While searching for them, news get spread that the elector, head of the state, has passed and his son, Anden, took his place. Shortly after, they got picked up and decide about further actions. June shall make her way into Andens inner circle and win his trust to send him in a trap, while Day, as the hero of the people, is used as the symbol for the rebellion. They plan to grasp the power by assassinating Anden and while the initial plans go well, a signal from June at the last moment convinces Daniel to take action and save Anden. Seen as traitors buy the Patriots, they flee through an underground tunnel into the Colonies, the state the Republic fights against. Even there, Day gets recognized and is glorified as a hero. Due to some insights, both make their way back into the Republic, just in time to stay up against the council and support Anden. In return Daniel and Eden are reunited and the remaining Patriots pardoned. During the following routine medical check for artificial viruses or bugs from the Colonies, Daniel is informed that he suffers from a brain tumor that will kill him eventually. As a result he breaks up with June, so she is free to led her life and won't see him struggle through a treatment that might not even help. All he wants is to spend the remaining time with his brother.


    ROLEPLAY SAMPLE

    “I won't!” Arms crossed he glanced at the stern lady at the other end of the kitchen counter, the only thing preventing another shouting match his brother sleeping in the next room. “Eden is fine without you watching over him every hour.” How could Lucy keep that calm? He was driven mad even thinking about what could happen while he was away – Anden could change his mind about using him as a biological weapon, the Colonies could land an attack, someone could come and take him away for good. But she was there official caretaker, living with them for some weeks now and she knew him well enough to stop his protest before he could pronounce it. The bundle of notes, enough to feed someone living on the streets a month, as well as the ear mic where pushed a tad further towards him.
    Scowling he picked it up at least. “If anything happens...” “I'll call you immediately and suffer dire consequences if Eden gets so much as a scratch. Go out and have some fun.” Daniel didn't respond to that, just snarled at her on his way to fetch a jacket. Cold air hit him once outside. It was dark already, the cloudy sky tinted yellow from the city lights. He pulled the scarf tighter and tucked a strand of hair back into the cap. It would be easier to blend in, to go unrecognized. After all, he was famous. The republics most wanted criminal turned nation hero – a 16 year old boy. Dying. Which of course was classified information, but that didn't make it any less real.
    He broke into a run, jogging along the streets until the sector he lived in blended into one of the less fortunate ones and lights run out. A glimpse was enough to take in the footholds of a nearby building and he scaled the four stories within seconds, making his way across the rooftops toward one of the underground clubs, where no one would ask any questions and he could loose himself in some thought-deafening beat. Maybe steal a kiss from a girl that could be June. Just... pretend to be normal for one evening.
